Hair M was founded by Celeste Trapp in 2003 in Portland, Oregon. New to the hair industry, Celeste identified a niche in offering a sophisticated salon for men that appealed to them aesthetically, while showing them how incredible pampering services like scalp massages, hot towel shaves and full body massages could be. With Celeste's marketing background Hair M was quick to be noticed and the buzz began. Men began to realize that they had been short serviced all the years prior and appreciated their Hair M experience.
In 2005 Hair M opened in Beaverton, Oregon. In 2009 Y-Chrome joined the family, a modern barbershop in downtown Portland. Trapp wanted to capture the clients who were not able to visit Hair M for every hair service due to price or convenience. Y-Chrome provided these clients a scaled-down experience, but with the same great service. Y-Chrome recently rebranded as Chrome, offering a more inclusive service for all, offering haircuts, shaves and color services.
In 2014 M|W opened its' doors in the Pearl District to house the third Hair M location along with very first Hair W. An incredible team was put together to deliver women the same amazing experience that men receive for their hair and skin needs.
Finally in 2018 Hair M opened in Lake Oswego at Kruse Village.
