what is hawthorne

Hawthorne is a urban sanctuary where master stylists, colorists, and makers come together to create an original and authentic experience for our clients. We invite you into the oasis we have lovingly built. The independent collaborators who co-create this space approach their craft with deep skill, care, and a spirit of invention, creating looks that are distinctly fresh and You leave feeling rejuvenated, looking and feeling your best, and looking forward to your next visit. So are we. Welcome to Hawthorne.

 

about

Garrett Bryant founded Hawthorne in 2018, realizing his dream of expanding his studio into an inclusive, collaborative, and evolving space. 

Hawthorne is built on my longstanding commitment to my craft and clients, with a vision of community over competition. Here, independent artisans grow their own brand and voice within a communal environment. We leave the old salon model behind and focus on building authentic relationships with our clients in a relaxed, curated environment that reflects who we are and what we believe in. Every detail has meaning and passion. Even our coffee and espresso cups are made by a local independent artist. I see Hawthorne not as a company, but a launching pad where multiple smaller businesses are being built, connections sparked, and new ideas tried out. In this shared space, we work as a team and we have fun doing it. Hawthorne is that rare space where you are not a consumer, but part of a growing community.

I want my collaborators to develop their creative freedom and independence, which is why the new studio is named Hawthorne: an homage to the neighborhood where my first apartment was, in my beloved hometown of Portland. Everyone is welcome. I can’t wait to share this journey with you.
