Find Your Calm
Walking into The Seahorse Salon is like discovering a new land. A place where you immediately relax and find your poise. This is not a flashy, trendy place, full of noise and chaos. It’s an oasis where you’ll be welcomed with warmth, and treated to something special just for you.
Cut It, Colour It, Cure it
The Seahorse Salon was created out of founder Jenn Ghaney’s vision: A reprieve from the everything of everyday. A place where hustle and bustle is put on a shelf and peace and relaxation is applied like a balm. Our team is artistic, knowledgeable, and committed to our craft and your comfort. Our space is welcoming to all genders, ethnicities, abilities, and identities. We serve people, not bias.
When you leave The Seahorse Salon, you’ll feel rejuvenated and so will your hair. You’ll walk out with confidence, not just because you’ll look great, but because you’ll be fearless in taking care of your hair at home. Welcome to The Seahorse Salon.

The experience was so educational as well as relaxing. I LOVE that there are a ton of cruelty free/vegan products! My stylist was so friendly and inviting and made me feel right at home. I can’t wait to come back! I honestly can’t recommend this place enough!
