Learn about a new Norwood salon that wants you to feel welcome when you walk in, then beautiful and loved by the time you walk out.
Inclusive, humane, eco-friendly, simple and relaxing. That’s the idea behind Wild Honey Salon in Norwood.
Established in June of 2017, Wild Honey creates a narrative of inclusivity. For example, rather than titling men’s or women’s cuts on the menu of services, the haircuts are classified by varying lengths of hair instead.
Wild Honey Salon is also humane and environmentally friendly, using R&Co. products, which are vegetarian, gluten-free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free and paraben-free.
The salon is home to five independent stylists including owner, Melissa Leitru. “I wanted to create a space where each stylist could be their own boss, yet we all work together with the same vision,” she explains. “The other girls who work with me are so amazing. They’re all so talented and the fact they they saw what I was doing and wanted to work here is still so cool to me. I want the salon to be a place for everyone to feel welcomed and loved.”
Wild Honey Salon offers a variety of services, including haircuts, colors, waxes, style and special occasion looks. They also offer deep conditioning and keratin smoothing treatments. Both of these specialty services range in prices with the keratin treatment at $300, and the deep conditioning at $25.
Special occasion looks by Wild Honey Salon include weddings, formal up-dos, and variations of blowouts.
“Design wise, the idea of Wild Honey Salon was to be minimal because of our small space. I love when people say that it feels relaxing and doesn’t feel cluttered,” Leitru shares. “I wanted a space where I could think and didn’t feel overwhelmed or distracted. It was always a dream of mine to open my own salon. Sometimes, with all the craziness of owning my own business and trying to stay on top of everything, I forget to sit back and realize that I’m living out my dream.”
Wild Honey is located at 3966 Montgomery Rd. in Cincinnati, Ohio. To find out more information or book an appointment, visit https://www.wildhoneysalon.
