Who We Are
Driven by a mission to inspire and expand the perception of beauty, I opened Urban in 2000 and have been redefining it’s role ever since.
At Urban, each visit is an opportunity for you to experience remarkable beauty experience. An experience that exceeds your expectations from the moment you step inside.
Beauty is defined by the individual. Its value is not in how it changes the way others see you, but in how it changes the way you see yourself, how you feel about yourself, your beauty goes beyond the mirror; it encompasses the light within you and sharing that light onto others.
We all have both the ability and responsibility to make a positive impact. We know how the power making a difference can have – on a person, a community and the planet. That’s why every boutique item featured is purposefully selected to make intentional giving meaningful.
In April 2020, marking 20 years in business Urban Life, our signature line of hair care products will be born! A 3 year journey to find the right non sulfate, non paraben and gluten free product for you to feel beautiful using. We will donate to local organizations that focus on empowering females, such as HOPE Works Urban has collaborated with Justice and Soul, an organization founded by a salon owner in Seattle dedicated to rescuing young victims from the brutal life of sex trafficking with education and employment opportunities in the beauty industry for more financial sustainability.
Lifestyle home hair care, a products designed for your beauty and those longing for it. We are dedicated to bettering the world through beauty. We are mission-driven and dedicated to supporting specific environmental and humanitarian causes. Many are female-led and all are eco-friendly and cruelty-free. How you spend your money matters, and there is beauty in paying it forward.
Making a difference for you and our planet
We are a proud Certified Green Circle Salon committed to doing our part to keep the planet beautiful by recovering and re-purposing beauty waste to make a difference.
Urban is 95% green. When being shampooed you’ll notice the massage friendly Eco-head sprayers that cut water usage and minimize minerals being transferred to the hair (resulting in better color absorption), to actions behind the scenes that include recycling leftover hair color into asphalt and hair clippings into oil-absorbing mats, we’re making a difference on micro and macro levels. We eliminate over 6500 lbs of waste from our landfills yearly with Green Circle. We are 75% paperless, your receipt will be emailed unless request otherwise.
At Urban Salon, we’re changing the way you see beauty one head at a time.
