In 2008, there was a vision to create a high-end hair salon with an upbeat atmosphere and city feel, to provide the best in hair styling and other beautification services to women – and gentlemen – who crave an upscale experience.
The decor and product lines offered are particularly chosen to set the salon apart as an individual in the local beauty industry of Wilmington, North Carolina. The stylists are an eclectic mixture of high talent stemming from cities across the country, each bringing their own skill set and flare to the consistently beautiful hair that walks out of the door of Beauty Bar Boutique. The staff is dedicated to delivering top customer service that is friendly, personable and accommodating to each and every customer.
We welcome you into our salon… Refresh yourself with an espresso, sparkling water, blooming tea or glass of vino. Flip through pages of Vanity Fair, Conde Nast or perhaps Garden & Gun. Awaken your senses with Oribe’s signature scent of edelweiss flower, watermelon & lychee extracts as your hair is nourished, enlightened and transformed. Pick up the season’s trending lip color or treat yourself to new nail & lip laquer by Smith&Cult (free of the 8 harsh chemicals!). Ease your getting ready time with Naturalash eyelash extensions. Let us paint in some sun-kissed brightness, or dimension-adding lowlights from our Wella color line. Fight the humidity and live a littler easier with a Keratin Complex blowout. Embrace a new style with a haircut that changes your view of yourself, and the world.
Beauty Bar Boutique, a ladies & gent’s hair salon.

Hannah Lynne's passion for the artistry of hair sparked suddenly & unexpectedly when she enrolled in beauty school by a friend's suggestion a week after college graduation. That spark and drive carried her passion to NYC where she apprenticed color, cutting & styling at both Oscar Blandi and Cutler Salons. She has worked on professional models & celebrities under Didier, James Pecis, Rodney Cutler and many other top industry hairstylists. She has been a part of styling for multiple editorial campaigns such as Vogue, Real Simple, and Rolling Stone magazines. Her work has been featured on national blogs & editorial features, and she continues to work with agencies in NYC.
Hannah has worked over 14+ seasons as a member of hair teams for New York Fashion Week for designers such as Hugo Boss, Ferragamo, Derek Lam, Nicole Miller, and over 70+ more! Most recently she styled for designer Rachel Antonoff’s catalogue featured on Vogue.com. She continues to travel back & forth, but loves calling Wilmington home!
Working behind the chair with clients, she says: "I love to embrace client's natural textures encouraging them on how to modernize their style while educating on how to keep it healthy and beautiful."
Fun fact: Hannah Lynne grew up in Senegal, West Africa! She is basically Cady from "Mean Girls"...

She has worked backstage at New York Fashion Week for several seasons alongside top industry artists.
Although Ramsey works as a colorist as well, her specialty is razor cutting and editorial and event styling. She’s the mom of two wonderful girls, Noa and Maggie Jo and loves anything that has to do with travel, history, old cars, 90s rock, and food.

While Natalie may live on the east coast, she is still a California girl at heart, but loves calling Wilmington home! With a bachelor's degree in Interior Design under her belt, she first followed her artistic drive to a career in Las Vegas, which led to her discovery of another aspect of art in the form of hair styling. She now applies the same design fundamentals to her work in the salon excelling in both hair styling and make-up artistry. She loves a good makeover, and feels rewarded when her clients leave feeling great about his or her new look.

Thomas brings his talents all the way from Lexington, KY. A stylist since 2008, he always, "feels blessed to be in the hair business," and doesn’t take a day for granted, similarly to the way he thinks no client deserves the same look. With each guest, he likes to carefully create a style and a regimen, that they can recreate with ease. He truly cares and takes pride on making his clients look and feel their best.
Thomas is our in-house color guru, and is a Brand Educator for Wella Professionals. When he’s not in the salon creating magic, he’s typically traveling across the country teaching other stylists the newest hair color trends, inspirations, and professionalism in the industry as a whole. Being a workaholic, he relaxes by playing sports and listening to music. Basketball is his love, with golf coming in at close second. He says music, "is a part of my survival; I always have my headphones on."
FUN FACT: Being a normal guy, if the hair industry had not chosen me, I probably would of chosen to be a lumberjack, or any job that deals with being in the outdoors!

She has found a passion in hair painting techniques such as balayage and color melting, but has definitely fallen in love with ALL the components of the hair industry.

Her goal is to build a personal relationship with each and every client that comes her way.
