Our Salon

SHED is a casual hair salon, conveniently located yet secluded, offering sophisticated style in an uplifting nature-filled environment that feels as comfortable as home. Our Emeryville “shed” is an industrial workshop where we nurture an individual’s natural beauty and cultivate transformative looks so that our client’s appearance reflects their inner brilliance. We believe our purpose is to not only provide haircuts but to guide our clients towards discovering their own unique identity and celebrate their contribution to our community. 


SHED’s mission is to support clients at all life stages so that they can age gracefully with timeless sophistication and effortless beauty. 


What to Expect

Often open to the street, our salon’s roll-up garage door is a symbol of our openness to serving all people equally in a space that is inviting. We believe that our salon should be a haven so that clients can find shelter from their busy day, indulge in a nourishing service, and receive our undivided attention. We also help clients find professional grade hair products that suit their needs. We pride ourselves on our commitment to efficiency. We fit into our client’s busy day without sacrificing their valuable time or jeopardizing the outcome of their service.

I love SHED! Big time! I am particular about who cuts my hair and have gone through quite a few stylists, not because they were terrible but just because they weren’t quite the right fit. Lisa Hellam is the right fit! Finally! She LISTENS, doesn’t decide to just do the opposite of what you ask for and is technically brilliant. She makes great recommendations, knows how to style the hair after it has been cut and is incredibly pleasant to chat with while she works. I also can’t get over how lovely the atmosphere of the salon is. The decorating is very cool, the other stylists all seem to be loving their work and the clients are clearly content. I will NEVER go somewhere else. Big hugs for the awesomeness that is SHED!
