Hive – a Hip Affordable Hair Salon – Silver Lake LA

by Lee Rose Emery

novembertime124a2Ah the beauty salon, one of life’s great pleasures. To sit, have someone wash your hair, then contemplate how to make you look more attractive – I find this to be quite a treat. And when a hair cut works, I feel terrific. I should also confess that I have been known to spend an inordinate amount of money on my hair, believing that most times, when it comes to hair cutters, you get what you pay for. Recently, on a friend’s suggestion, after lamenting the rate hikes at my former Beverly Hills salon, I decided to try someplace new: Hive in Silver Lake. Hive’s concept is refreshing: to provide a chic urban neighborhood salon with reasonably priced hair cuts for adults and kids. Hive also serves as an art gallery for emerging artists, plus a gathering place for Wednesday night sangria parties! Wednesday evenings you can go, have a drink, enjoy a terrific and affordable hair cut, and appreciate some innovative art.

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience at Hive. I loved what my stylist, Sal, did with my hair. I found the atmosphere relaxing, and I even brought my daughter in to have her bangs trimmed. You do not have to go to a special kids’ salon with noisy video games and rocking horses for your kids to have a great hair cutting experience. Try Hive next time you or your kids need a haircut. I think you’ll be impressed with Hive, and the value of a great new look. A cut at Hive cost  half the price of my former haircut. Ah, the beauty salon.
