About Ceremony Healing & Hair

Ceremony is redefining the boundaries of hair care and styling by introducing a holistic approach to the traditional salon experience.

At Ceremony, the philosophy goes beyond simple aesthetics. 

Here, beauty is viewed as an act of self-care, a pivotal component of wellness that has profound impacts on overall well-being. 

This innovative salon is not just about hairstyles and hair colors; it’s about instilling confidence, promoting self-love, and enhancing wellness in all aspects.

Committed to health and environmental sustainability, Ceremony only utilizes organic beauty products. 

Each product is handpicked to align with our dedication to wellness, from nourishing shampoos and conditioners to low-toxic colorants and ethically sourced extensions, ensuring that every aspect of our service is safe for both guests and the planet.

Ceremony boasts a wide spectrum of organic hair specialties to cater to diverse hair care needs. The salon’s unique approach enhances each guest’s unique beauty.

A favorite service our guests love is the incorporation of energy healing and hair steam treatments during the shampoo stage. This unique integration of wellness therapies into salon services ensures a stress-reducing, deeply relaxing experience, transforming a routine salon visit into a holistic wellness journey.

 

Guests seeking a deeper level of rejuvenation can opt for add-on or extended healing sessions or choose from any one of our 20 healing sessions.

These sessions are conducted in a serene, private space within the salon, allowing for a tranquil retreat and a deeper exploration of well-being.

At Ceremony, the traditional salon visit is transformed into a holistic journey of wellness that enriches both the hair and spirit, echoing the belief that beauty is a deeply personal, transformative experience.
