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.

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 it is such an honor to have you as clients and friends.
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!
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!
While experimentally ombre’ing a friend’s hair in high school, and loving every second of it, I realized I was meant to do hair. I graduated from Aveda Institute in Manhattan in 2014 and I’ve been doing hair professionally on a freelance basis ever since. Through freelancing, I’ve developed my own style of hair coloring that caters to my guest’s individuality and personality. Hair is an extension of our selves and that is always my priority as your stylist, whether it’s through a tousled balayage or brilliant multicolored painting. I am thrilled to be a part of The Bird House and I cannot wait to make your hair goals a reality!

**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.
º Fashion color is a very fun, varied, and often fussy little treatment. There are tons of factors to consider when you are getting fashion color, including whether your hair has been previously color treated or not, whether you hair is long or short, light or dark, etc. Do you want opal hair or simply a bit of face-framing purple balayage? Because of the wonderful diversity of fashion color treatments, we charge a la carte for them, and therefore need to consult with you to determine price, the amount of appointments it may require (often, achieving the fashion color look you want requires multiple appointments), and the amount of time you’ll need to be in the chair for each service. Please note: we use Pravana color and include Olaplex with this service.
Please note: we have a 24-hour cancellation policy. We require your credit card upon booking, and please note that if you cancel within that 24-hour period, you will be subject to a charge of 50% of the service price. If you no-show, you will be charged 100% of the service price. Because we are a by appointment only studio, our stylists depend on your timely arrival or cancellation. Thank you for your cooperation.

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 burgeoning 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!
