Cutting through the shaggy overgrowth of gendered salon atmospheres.
The hyper-masculinity of a barber shop or ultra-femininity of a beauty parlor is not a necessary factor in the confidence that a haircut can provide our guests. Hair has no gender, and for many folks, the traditional gender binary of the hair industry is outdated. When it comes down to it, folks just want to feel safe and confident in the chair.
Historically, salons have functioned as ancillary hubs of community and dialogue. We hope to continue that tradition by providing an inclusive space that always feels safe and inviting. It is important to us at Acute Salon that we take an activist role in our shared community by cultivating an environment that is devotedly intolerant of racism, sexism, misogyny, transphobia, and bigotry.
We hope that you feel comfortable in our chair.
At Acute Salon our haircut pricing is based off length and time spent. Our stylists have experience with all lengths and textures.
Balayage, Blonding, Fashion Shades, Grey coverage, Color Corrections
Perms and Brazilian Blowouts
Tape in, bonded, and beaded extensions available upon consultation
Acute salon’s process begins with “listening to [the customers] their needs.” - “I don’t focus a lot on gender identity or expression unless they bring it up. A lot of folks seek out our salon because they do not want a stylist that asks a ton of uncomfortable questions about their gender. Everyone wants a haircut that makes them feel confident”, explains Acute Salon owner Charli Bonham.
