About Us

More Than Just a Salon

As a Certified Organic Master Haircolorist with over 15 years of experience, I have a unique holistic approach to hair color and care. I offer my guests the experience of a hair salon with a safe, toxin-free environment created for beauty, well-being, and relaxation.

When you are a guest at my studio, you will receive my undivided attention. I promise to give you an in-depth consultation and personalized service that will exceed your expectations of excellence. You will be my only client the duration of your appointment.

Having the only completely toxin-free salon in Missoula, Montana, I didn’t stop at just using safer hair products. You won’t find harsh cleaning chemicals under my sink and I have implemented an air filtration system to keep the incoming air safer and cleaner. The added bonus is that we are not washing toxins down the drain and into our water sources.

I strive to make my guests feel at home and comfortable with the warm atmosphere of visiting a friend’s home. And if you’re a dog lover, one of my little dogs just might come sit on your lap too!

I love the motto, “Enter as strangers, leave as friends,” because that’s the experience I hope to give everyone who comes through my door.

Our Proud Missoula Story

Alder Street Studio is located in the Warehouse Mall on Missoula’s West Side. The building itself was built about a hundred years ago. Originally it was a warehouse for railroad shipments. In some of the lower level suites, you can still see the horseshoe imprints in the plank floors.

The building now hosts a unique, eclectic group of small businesses with a sense of community. You will usually be greeted by friendly faces accompanied by a dog or two. You won’t find another building in Missoula with as much character!

I opened my studio in the warehouse about seven years ago. I fell in love with the atmosphere immediately and so did my clients. Gone were the days of getting their hair done in busy, loud salons with tons of people coming and going. The setting was intimate and warm. I had found my niche.

As time went on, it became apparent that it was time for me to make some drastic changes. So a few months ago, I made the life-changing decision to remove all the unsafe toxic chemicals that were making me sick. I changed every aspect of the salon, including the name. It has been the smartest, most rewarding decision of my career as a hairdresser.

I look forward to many more years in my studio providing the community with fantastic hair!
