Founded by award-winning stylist Katie Manselle, Culture Hair Studio is an Oribe and R + CO concept salon located in historic downtown Durham. We are focused on the art and craft of hairdressing.  Our mission is to take inspiration from current fashion-forward hair trends to give you the best hair cut and color you've ever had.


Our stylists are trained to use razor cutting techniques, skillful precision cutting as well as clippers to help guests achieve the look they are after.  

We specialize as a hair color salon, and we focus on the most recent techniques in the industry.  We are always learning, and believe that, "You never arrive!"  We want each guest to have the best hair color they have ever had.  Our hair colorists will work to meet and exceed your expectations for your unique individuality.  Our stylists consistently train with top professionals in the industry and we believe that Wella Professional Hair Color helps us create the tonality our guests are seeking.  We can help to correct a homemade color job gone wrong, or tailor fresh looks for the changing seasons.  

Our stylists are trained in using Olaplex with hair services.  It was developed by the chemist Craig Hawker, a nationally recognized scientist with a research group focused on molecular engineering, specifically as it applies to biomaterial and energy. Our salon uses Olaplex to protect colored hair and keep our guests' hair healthy and strong!

When you are looking for top rated salons in Durham and in the south, we strive to be the best.
