Heart-based, eco-driven. Defying typical hair salon standards and creating a space where you are not just a number, but a member of the phi family. A salon that focuses as much on reducing our carbon footprint as it does on total wellness and beauty.
With the salon as a foundation, this team can do more things they are passionate about – allowing workshops in the space, featuring local artists and connecting with the community on a different level. There has been an outcry for genuine human connection in our community, and phi is helping to create that bridge.
