Community. Communication. Connection.

Last night, after 3 long years, we were finally able to again have our annual gathering and in-person patio chat in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.And what a special evening it was.As often stated, we view our atelier not as hair salon, but a space that is a ‘salon’ in the true sense of the word. A gathering place, a safe space to share and talk, openly and honestly, and sometimes that means having hard conversations.

It’s a well known fact in my family and has both good and bad qualities. The good? I’m the go to on all things cleaning or organizing related. The bad? I once inadvertently threw away my brothers prized early nineties Steelers...

Each month at Highbrow Hippie we pick a theme to help guide our marketing. Typically its aligned with the season and this month is no different.

As we ease into Autumn I find myself making a bee line towards cozy town. Loads of people here in sunny LA complain about “winter” but I...
