What is Salon Red’s Picks?  It is about making connections with our community.  It is a way for the Salon Red family to share some of their amazing experiences, things we love around town, and some exceptional people we have met along the way!


Salon Red Goes “Green”

 

Salon Red is now partnering with Green Circle Salons! Green Circle Salons is a special recycling/re-purposing program that ensures hair, foils, color tubes, plastics, papers,and chemicals are diverted out of our landfills and water systems.

That is 90-95% of all of our salons waste!  That’s right! Even the hair we sweep from the floor is re-purposed. Hair can be used to help clean up oil spills, as a gardening tool to keep away rabbits, deer, etc. as well as a natural fertilizer as it decomposes, and we are proud to be a part of this Green Initiative to Revolutionize the Industry.

$2.50 from your visit to Salon Red contributes to the success of this program.  Reducing your carbon footprint and having a great hair day all rolled into one!

The Hil

Why this pick?

Jessica, owner of Salon Red,  has known Hilary White for 20 years and has a very strong connection with her and her family. Hilary has been a very loyal guest of Salon Red since before it even opened it’s doors.   “Her passion for her craft continues to blow my mind even today.- Jessica Soler.  The Hil is an amazing restaurant and a must when visiting Serenbe, and just like at Salon Red they treat you like “family.”

About Chef Hilary White

ChefHilary

Farm to table is more than just a catch phrase for Executive Chef Hilary White of The Hil at Serenbe. She lives that ethos daily, having specially selected her restaurant’s location for the proximity to the farm at Serenbe and the community’s collective commitment to sustainability.

Chef Hilary grew up in rural Shelby, Ohio, near expansive farms with an abundance of fresh produce and wholesome ingredients, which has greatly influenced her ideas about the dishes she creates. After traveling extensively throughout the United States, Caribbean, Central and South America — via land and in working with a cruise-line — she was drawn to the creativity and artistry of being a chef. Pursuing only the best, she graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York in 1995.

Hilary began her culinary career at Atlanta’s prestigious Buckhead Life Restaurant Group, in the popular and elegant 103 West restaurant. During her 13 years there, she became the company’s first female executive chef. She opened her namesake restaurant, The Hil, in 2007, with her husband, Jim, and her mother, Sandy Pitsch, at her side. She is part of a unique partnership with Serenbe Farm, spending time tending the farm and growing produce, which serves to further her connection to the Earth and to her community.

Chef Hilary’s talent has been widely recognized, having garnered attention in Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Garden & Gun, The New York Times, Atlanta Magazine, Creative Loafing and many others. She is an active member of the internationally respected Les Dames d’Escoffier, Southern Foodways Alliance and Georgia Grown. She also lends her time supporting important non-profits such as Share Our Strength and Wholesome Wave. Chef Hilary loves mentoring younger chefs, so she participates in the Culinary Institute of America’s extern leadership program, providing an educational environment in her kitchen.

In her spare time, she likes nothing better than to spend the day with her husband, exploring the open roads of Georgia (and beyond) on her Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
