Rhody Gem: Plant-based Products and Artful Cuts at Providence’s Flipp Salon & Apothecary

July 2023

What it is:

A collab of like-minded stylists, Flipp is the state’s first plant-based hair salon and herbal apothecary, and also offers a time-based model for services rather than by gender.


Where to find it:

On that brief stretch of Transit Street between Benefit and South Main streets, look for a sign with a logo that bears resemblance to iconic ‘60s model Twiggy.


What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Concerned about what you’re putting on your head? With a focus on goods that use minimal chemical ingredients, Flipp hopes to protect your health as well as the environment. According to owner Jo-Anna Cassino, “We believe that beauty and wellness are symbiotic, and we’re committed to using safe, non-toxic products that not only provide high-performing results but also promote overall well-being.” After you get your hair done, check their fully stocked apothecary of teas, bath and beauty products, and more. Flipp also takes great care to promote local artisans through their rotating gallery which offers works for sale; they even host a concert series called Flipp by Night where the salon transforms into a night club vibe.
