Vegan Beauty Salon to Open in Brooklyn

Cruelty-free hair extensions and products will be main attractions at new salon OMHH Beauty Oasis.

A new dual vegan beauty retail shop/salon is slated to open in Brooklyn, NY at the end of the month. Oh My Heavenly Hair (OMHH) Beauty Oasis will carry vegan shampoo, body wash, oils, and other products while the salon side—Debra Hare-Bey Private Parlour—is reserved for appointments with founder Debra Hare-Bey. In 2000, natural hair stylist Hare-Bey launched a vegan hair extension line—which eschews common animal fibers such as horse hair—to promote cruelty-free beauty. “A good natural hair stylist is not just about the hair,” Hare-bey said. “We know it starts with a healthy body, a healthy spirit.” Hare-Bey’s new venture is just the latest in a growing trend of animal-free beauty. In addition to many cosmetic brands opting for cruelty-free formulations, vegan company Function of Beauty recently hosted a widely popular pop-up shop in New York City in November where shoppers were able to customize shampoos and conditioners to fit their hair type, style, preferred smell, and color.
