At The Bird House, we start at this fundamental truth: our relationship with our hair is deeply emotional. When we walk by a window and see our reflection, we almost automatically fix our hair. If a visitor comes by unannounced, before we even answer the door we fluff our hair. When we’re getting ready for a party, we style our hair, as best as we can. And when something changes — if our hair dries out, thins, grays, grows heavy, splits at the ends, if the color fades — it affects us on a heart level. 

For many of us, our hair is a deeply felt part of our identity. At The Bird House, that truth is where our styling begins. Our hope is that you leave our studio feeling emotionally boosted. That you leave with a sense of pleasure over your hair. That your hair looks and feels how you hoped it would. That it represents you.

In that spirit, our stylists offer a start-to-finish service, including a careful consultation before and after your style, an unhurried atmosphere, and a precise attention to quality and detail.

At The Bird House, we respect your relationship with your hair.
And we start there. 

We’re hiring!

Brooke Jordan Hunt, Owner, Head Stylist

After spending basically my entire life styling and cutting people’s hair, I became officially trained by the fabulous and brilliant minds at Union Square’s Carsten Aveda Institute, where I learned the fine art of French haircutting and color chemistry. I also quickly grew to understand and appreciate the emotional connection we all have with our hair, and it’s a truth I carry with me during every appointment. After completing my training, I began working at a high-end salon, and in 2011, I opened my own studio. Opening The Bird House has been a wonderful and thrilling adventure, and throughout the years, I’ve grown as a stylist and have built an incredible group of clients. I’m so honored to take care of your hair, ladies and gents. Can’t wait to see you in my chair!

Ashley Michael, Senior Stylist

From New Orleans, I have been doing hair professionally since graduating from the Carsten Aveda Institute in 2012 and I am so thrilled and honored to be working alongside Brooke at The Bird House. At Aveda, I was trained in the much sought-after French technique of haircutting with a further emphasis on modern color applications. My sincere desire is to help my guests in realizing their full beauty potential by complimenting what they have on the inside and reflecting it on the outside. I constantly strive to learn new techniques, and offer elevated hairdressing with a variety of specialties in all hair textures and color applications.

Ashley is currently on maternity leave and will return at a thus-undetermined date. While Ashley is on leave, she highly recommends our other stylists and very much looks forward to taking care of your hair again when she returns!

Jess Shaffer, Senior Stylist

Originally from the Pacific Northwest, I have had a passion for hair and beauty from a very young age. After graduating from Gary Manuel Aveda Institute, in Seattle, I started doing hair professionally at the tender age of eighteen. After working in a high-end salon as a senior stylist for eight years, I opened my own studio in Seattle. Recently relocating to New York, I am devoted to my work and excited to share a passion for beauty. When I’m not busy in the salon I enjoy arranging flowers, eating good food, and spending time outside.

Shannon Chalmers, Stylist

After growing up in Vermont, I moved to New York a few years ago to pursue my dream to be a hairstylist. I have loved working at The Bird House since I graduated from the Aveda Institute, and I have developed many advanced techniques as Brooke’s protégé. From creating soft silhouettes and textured tresses, to working with every color of the rainbow, it is a joy for me to help my clients feel and look their best. I can’t wait to meet you!

All services include a shampoo and blow dry *except children’s cuts. If you have very curly or very thick, long hair and would like your hair blown out, please also select “additional styling” on the drop down menu when you book in order to ensure your stylist has enough time to blow out your hair. There will be a $25 surcharge as well due to the extra time requirement.

**We require Olaplex for these selected services, and have factored it into the price, because it is an incredibly effective, deeply restorative treatment. It reconnects bonds in your hair, which are naturally broken during color-treatments. This product is necessary in order to maintain the health of your hair during these intensive chemical processes. We also highly recommend, but do not require, Olaplex for all other color services, particularly lightening services. It is $45. Select “Add Olaplex” as an additional service when you book online.

Brooke Jordan Hunt & Nicci Jordan Hubert

Owned by Minnesota-expat “Jordan sisters,” Brooke Jordan Hunt and Nicci Jordan Hubert, The Bird House got its start in a tiny closet-sized studio in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn—without even a bathroom!—and quickly outgrew the space. After some effort, Nicci finally convinced Brooke that it was time to invest in a bigger, better studio.

Soon, we moved into our current Gowanus location—with the help of our tireless husbands who supported us and took care of our children while we spent endless hours planning and designing. We’re so honored to be in this bourgeoning community in Brooklyn, and are beyond proud to have a team of beautiful, excellent stylists working with us. The Bird House is truly a labor of (sisterly) love!
