Our Vision

Vita Beauty Bar is dedicated to bringing you luxurious health and beauty services with minimal environmental impact. We are a Green Circle Salon, meaning we divert up to 95% of what would normally go into our waste system into secure recycling. Through partnerships and patronship, we love our local businesses! We strive to uplift local entrepreneurs as well as charities and organizations and are always looking to find new and creative ways to be active in our community.

Our Story

Vita Beauty Bar’s roots are ones in friendship. The founding members are a group of close friends and family. Through long days and nights of drywalling, painting, tiling, and moving into, piece by piece Vita came together. Through one small idea, hard work and dedication, the idea snowballed into becoming a home and dreams come true for a close-knit team of beauty professionals. Though all very unique, we have cultivated a family in our professionals, who are all dedicated to making the most of everyone’s visit to Vita Beauty Bar.
