Your Health. Our Priority

Our Vision

We strive to continually impact our community by educating ourselves on the newest breakthroughs in greener living and greener products. By passing this knowledge on to our clients, we feel we encourage the same eco-friendly behaviors in our community. We accomplish this vision through hand-selecting products that are not tested on animals and by partnering with other eco-friendly salons that work towards bettering our environment. We foster a belief that everyone can help make a change to better our well-being, our community, and even our world through implementing small, impactful changes. One of our small steps in reaching our goal of a cleaner world is to follow the LEED guidelines and protocols within our building. Another small step is being the catalyst for all of our team members, as helping them make a difference by bettering the world is a top priority. We foster leadership in our company by spreading the knowledge of healthy hair solutions while also keeping up with current trends. We continually seek to create and partner with other companies that follow the organic standard, broadening our reach. Ippodaro Natural Hair Salon embodies being cruelty-free by picking companies that use fewer pesticides, farm organically, have a bee-friendly habitat, and support companies that work with Green Circle Salons to limit our carbon footprint.

Our History

Ippodaro means “Beautiful Princess” in Korean. We began serving the community in February 2016. The heart and soul of Ippodaro and our very own beautiful princess, Terri opened this natural salon to spread the word about safe beauty products. She wanted people to know they don’t have to choose between their health and confidence. From a young age, Terri Rehkopf had a passion for hair and style. Growing up in her family salon, she was exposed to the value of finding innovative techniques and exploring new ideas for customers’ satisfaction. The Ippodaro salon is founded on caring for customers’ hair and bodies by eliminating exposure to harmful chemicals.

By improving the lives of others and changing our environment for the better, we can bring awareness and growth to our guests, their families, and our community. To do this, we must work together with an open and curious mind. This is fundamental in building a collaborative work environment. Collaboration is the key to growth and the opportunity to change the world for the better.

We are honored when you share your ideas and challenges with the Ippodaro team. Realizing the benefits of being diverse and open to all respectful types of communication styles, we can assure you that your voice will be heard. This open collaboration is essential in finding solutions to improve our community, our salon, and the world.

"None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful." - Mother Teresa

We see collaboration as a process in which a group of people constructively explore their ideas to search for a solution that reaches beyond one’s limited vision. Developing and using this skill will help in teamwork, understanding others' perspectives, and meeting expectations as a reliable team member. Successful collaboration involves a cooperative spirit, respectful understanding of others, skilled communication, emotional intelligence, and respect for diversity.


Advanced education is the top priority in keeping up with the latest trends. At Ippodaro Natural Salon, we share knowledge fluidly through the team by providing the best-advanced education and creating a culture of high-quality service. We believe helping one another is part of our mission, and it allows for opportunities for growth within Ippodaro Natural Salon. We can impact each individual by sharing the knowledge of healthy and balanced lifestyles — mind, body, soul, and HAIR. We seek to create awareness about the environment in our world. Ippodaro is committed to helping improve the lives in our communities through education.
