At Public Salon and Shoppe, we believe that hair is a form of expression and style, and like any piece of art, our hair is a canvas. Our stylists are true artists, inspired by the beauty of nature and the dynamic fashion industry that surrounds us. Our type of artistry is not hanging on your wall at home, but one that you wear everyday, it is the one accessory that you can't take off, let your hair express your unique self.

At Public Salon and Shoppe, we are committed to creating the perfect style for each and every one of our clients. We continue to stay on top of our craft, we live for the art of hair, we are truly passionate about what we do. We love our planet and we try to do everything in an eco-friendly environment.

Owner, Molly Romano, known as @MollyRomanoHair on Instagram has been published in numerous hair magazines, as well as, Cosmopolitan UK. "I treat every guest as if they are going to be featured in a magazine, which I expect each of my artists to do as well. Every magazine that my work was featured in was of my regular guests."

Our excellent reputation and long list of satisfied clients attest to our superior hair artistry, attention to detail, clear communication, honesty and integrity. Just ask for our client reference list.
