Ship Shape Hair Design

is devoted to creating a salon that includes all, by eliminating the hyper-masculinity of Barber Shops or the hyper-femininity of Beauty Parlors. Because gender isn’t required to create good hair. When it comes down to things, people just want to feel safe, confident, and included without judgement.

Since the beginning, salons have brought a sense of community and dialogue. So, it is important for Ship Shape Hair Design to be able to cultivate an environment that is devoted to intolerance of racism, sexism, misogyny, transphobia, and bigotry.

Keeping you tip top and Ship Shape.
