Colleen Morgan, owner of The Green Door Salon Spa and Barber Studios in Colleyville, said a goal of hers to lead customers to a healthier alternative in hair care.
Morgan, who has been in the styling business for 30 years, said she attributes some health issues she has faced to working excessively around harsh chemicals commonly found in hair care products. To counter the problem, Morgan said she decided to open her own hair salon and use organic products.
“[The health concerns] really set me on my path of looking for an alternative,” she said. “I wanted a healthier environment not only for myself and my employees, but for my clients.”
Morgan said she takes pride in the salon, offering “cutting-edge” organic hair care products.
The salon has two main product lines—O&M, a gluten-free Australian line, and Oway.
Oway, she said, is “a step above organic” utilizing biodynamic—or organic—farmed ingredients, and its hair color product line “was recently voted the No. 1 ammonia-free hair color in a top industry publication.”
The salon offers haircuts that start at $55 and hair coloring starting at $75.
Morgan said all color services—including highlights—are done with organic products.
The business, Morgan said, is also a family affair. Two of her daughters work at the salon: Tess is a barber and stylist, and Meg is an esthetician.
“They grew up in the business,” she said, adding that the opportunity for the family to work together is just another benefit of owning the salon located “just minutes from home.”
In addition to hair care, salon services include facials, waxing and a Sunlighten mPulse Sauna.
Morgan said the sauna is ideal for cell health and immunity, detox and skin purification.
A single session costs $40, and larger packages are available to purchase at a discounted rate.
Dr. James D. Mackey also works out of the salon and offers laser treatments. However, since he is not part of the salon operation, his hours vary, Morgan said.
Morgan said she is constantly on the lookout for the latest innovation in alternative hair care to share with her clientele and hopes to one day be “a full-service salon” and offer massages and nail care, too.
Morgan said she is a firm believer in the organic offerings she has available in-store and can attest to how beneficial changing hair products can be for one’s hair.
“My hair has never been healthier,” Morgan said. “The health of my hair is just incredible. There is just no comparison.”
