meet panda..

welcome! please call me panda, all my friends do!

salt hair opened its doors in december of 2016 , 11 years into my career as a hair stylist.  this is a single chair salon, meaning I am your receptionist, stylist, cashier, consultant & all around do-er of hair things. opening this space presented some new challenges that enabled me to practice my not so strong suit of patience. in the end though, every bit of worry, hang wringing, fist shaking , floor sanding, wall painting & chasing down of contactors was worth it.

i am a mother to Murdoch, my one & only heathen & tiny dictator of my heart. i came to the obx  on a journey to reduce the amount of things i own in order to experience a more authentic life. by cutting the size of our in home in a literal 1/4 & getting rid of 80% of things that were owning me instead of vice versa that goal is in a continual state of growth.  travel is high on the priority list as well as gathering meaningful experiences instead of working non stop to buy useless things.

as i mentioned above, 2016 was my 11th year practicing the art of cosmetology & i continue to strive to gain knowledge in my field. continuing education is very important to me & thus far i have traveled all over the us & into mexico in pursuit of that knowledge. i love returning inspired & on fire to keep pushing the envelope. whether you are channeling your inner rainbow bright, jessica rabbit, patti mayonnaise or rapunzal, i shall keep your locks fresh & cared for. from mermaid to classic natural beauty, i will educate you on home hair care & day to day styling.

i am also a fire dancer, wanna be surfer & lover of all things sea related. i am an adventure junkie & seek out well prepared, fresh food.

want to know more? consultations are free & encouraged!

with love & no split ends,
