In 2008, there was a vision to create a high-end hair salon with an urban 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 Starbucks coffee or La Croix sparkling water, as a mixture of Ellie Goulding, a Tribe Called Quest and other indie-rock artists play in the background. 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 5). Ease your getting ready time with Naturalash eyelash extensions. Let us paint in some sun-kissed highlights, 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 - SALON OWNER
Hannah Lynne's passion for the artistry of hair sparked suddenly & unexpectedly when she enrolled in beauty school by the suggestion of a sorority sister a week after college graduation. That spark and drive carried her passion to Manhattan where she studied and apprenticed color, cutting & styling at both Oscar Blandi and Cutler Salons. She has worked closely with owner Rodney Cutler, as well as multiple platform & editorial artists, allowing for experience with professional models & celebrity styling. 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.

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!
Hannah still loves to do hair behind the chair, and takes client part-time each week. She loves being a part of everyday wearable hair and styles, and 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."

After earning her degree in Chemistry from UNCW, Ramsey decided to follow her passion and become a hairstylist.

Most importantly, she truly values each and every one of her clients and she educates her clients on the right products and styling techniques for their hair, using skills she has learned in various Oribe, R+Co, V76 by Vaughn, and Wella advanced education classes. Her and her husband are now enjoying life with baby girl, Noa!

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. Whether it’s transforming one of our beach beauty’s with some balayage highlights for a sun kissed goddess look, or by cutting a sleek bob which uses all the classic elements of design for a more sophisticated-ageless look. 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."
