A conscious, holistic, & sustainable boutique salon in downtown Sandpoint, Idaho.
~Our Unique Approach to Hair~
Welcome to Fifth Element Hair Studio, where it is our passion to accompany and assist your hair on its journey of being vibrant and beautiful. Our knowledgable and experienced artists approach each guest individually, taking into consideration your lifestyle and desires, and are dedicated to creating your dream hair to help you look and feel like your most authentic self.
We also feel that it is our responsibility and obligation to do this in a way that is healthiest for people and the environment. We are proud to be a 'Clean Air' salon offering a conscious, holistic, and sustainable salon experience using some of the cleanest and greenest low-and-non-toxic hair color and hair products on the market, and create almost zero waste.
We are happily located in the Cedar Street Bridge Public Market in the heart of Downtown Sandpoint, Idaho with an array of other local shoppes and artists. We look forward to sharing our space with you!
"Being fully aware of ones own existence, thoughts, actions, etc,
and the world around you"
We strive to be fully aware of how the products and practices we use in the beauty industry (and our daily lives) affect our bodies and the earth. We support small independent hair care brands that are committed to cleaner ways in their ingredients and business practices.
The brands we use in the salon and love are vegan + cruelty free and free of:
'Understanding that all the parts of something are intimately interconnected
and the whole is more than merely the sum of its parts'
We believe that the concept of beauty is all encompassing and is directly linked to health, self care, happiness, and wellbeing. We believe that investing in yourself, your lifestyle, and the products and practices that are in your best interest, simultaneously impact and benefit the best interests of the environment and the world. And because we believe that your salon experience is about so much more than just getting your hair done, we hope you leave your time with us feeling inspired, relaxed, and rejuvenated. (Along with having amazing hair!)
'Made in a way that causes little or no damage to the environment
and therefor able to continue for a long time'
We implement products and practices that are low-and-non-toxic and create less waste to reduce our carbon footprint and support brands that use sustainable packaging and ethically sourced ingredients.

that recovers and repurposes 95% of our salon's waste, keeping it out of landfills and waterways. Things we recycle:
