Conscious & Green Hair Care in Norman, Oklahoma

About Me

The Green Hairdresser

I believe in embracing your own unique loveliness and sharing my passion for green and sustainable beauty, and a more conscious lifestyle.

A few years into my career as a hairdresser, I learned about the harmful aspects of the beauty industry; from the dangers of formaldehyde exposure to the overwhelming amount of waste produced in a salon.  I loved doing hair but was conflicted about continuing in such an atmosphere.

So I began researching. I fell down a rabbit hole of information; learning about ingredients, nutrition, sustainability, human rights, animal rights, recycling, and so much more. I discovered that with conscious choices I could still do my love of hair and combine it with my newfound passion of green living.

In addition to learning about the environmental impact I learned more about hair as well. The health of the hair, like a tree, starts from the roots that nourish it to the environment it’s exposed to. Each head of hair completely and utterly unique to the person; how it grows, how it moves, how it changes throughout a lifetime. I started looking at the whole person and crafting styles that made their own beauty shine bright.

I want my clients to feel good about their hair everyday and more empowered with knowledge.

More About Shyloh

When I was around 6 years old I wanted to be a dental hygienist, not because I had any love for oral hygiene. No, I wanted to be a dental hygienist because the woman who did my 6 month checkup made the experience amazing. I wanted to do that. I wanted to make people feel good.
Alas around age 11 I found out that being a dental hygienist ment sticking my hands in strangers mouths and I was out.

Lucky for me after a short intense obsession with being a creative photographer, I discovered the beauty industry.

I have been a hairdresser now since 2009 and it has taken me on many wonderful adventures. I explored life in different salons, from quick cuts to exclusive luxury salons. I worked on local films, photoshoots, and fashion shows. I even won a few hair competitions! I finally found my home in having my own eco-friendly salon, The Green Grove.

However, years of chronic health problems caught up with me and I had to reevaluate things. I was diagnosed with two chronic diseases. I ended up needing to have some surgeries and I had to learn how to adjust my life.

In 2016, after 3 years, I closed the doors on The Green Grove.
With the encouragement of my family and friends to continue to do what I loved most, while still respecting my health and wellbeing, I downsized to a small private studio and continue my journey as The Green Hairdresser.
