Our History


It all began as the proverbial big idea… we wanted to have a lot of fun doing what we do best: hair!

From the moment the idea of URBAN was conceived, the process of finding the perfect location began. Within 18 months, our dream space came together in the heart of Downtown Kalamazoo. Fast-forward 14 years, and we still remain committed to our original idea of providing a fun, modern salon experience.

Our top priority is our guests! Through personalized service and attention to detail, we do our best to ensure your visit to URBAN will be unique and distinguishable from past salon experiences. We pride ourselves on creating an exciting, talented-based, fashion-inspired culture driven by a passion for education and, most importantly, good hair!
