Hale Organic Salon - Lower East Side, NYC
The word hale is an adjective used to describe a person who is strong, healthy, robust and full of life. That pretty much describes the philosophy and business model of owner and lead stylist Joe Murray at Hale Organic Salon. Joe and his uber-talented staff want to help their clients find a cleaner and greener alternative when it comes to keeping their hair beautiful and healthy.
The salon itself is something out of a Vogue magazine photo-shoot. When you walk through the doors, prepare to be dazzled. The reception desk is a baby grand piano. How cool is that? A majestic fireplace and antique mirror frame the salon chairs, where clients sit for their makeovers. The polished floors are comprised of wood salvaged from a two hundred year old barn. The salon's gorgeous French doors were re-claimed from a Nineteenth century rectory. This is the very definition of sustainable living.
Joe Murray's mission in life, to bring natural and organic change to the salon industry began when he was a young stylist. Joe found that the various dyes and chemicals he had to work with were actually making him sick. For awhile, Joe worked the different shows, during fashion week, styling the model's hair. Burning the candle at both ends, Joe eventually decided to take a break from the business and evaluate just where he was headed in life.
Wanting to take a more holistic approach to life, a refreshed and rejuvenated Joe opened Hale Salon, a green oasis of tranquility that would serve stressed out New Yorkers. Putting together a team of professionals who cared about the environment as musch as he does, Joe recruited several Vidal Sasson-trained stylists to set up shop at Hale.
At Hale Salon, your well-being is their priority. You won't find any harmful aerosols or chemical-laden sprays here. To complete your natural and organic styling experience, Hale uses only the best products. Joe and his team test every shampoo, dye and conditioner on themselves before introducing the product into the salon. Hale uses the superb John Masters' organic product line.
At Hale Salon, clean living and organic, environmentally friendly practices are an ongoing commitment, not just buzz-words that are good for business. Joe Murray and his team style hair with a sense of purpose. Whenever you need a color and cut or just feel like pampering yourself, give Joe and his cutting crew a call. You'll be really glad that you did.
