A Place that Celebrates Gender, Race, Spirit, Age, and all the things that make you~ You...


We value open, vulnerable communication and curiosity while always assuming positive intent.

Welcome to Benders Collective,  We are a Queer & Trans owned and operated establishment located in Long Beach, California.  Our mission is to provide stellar beauty services, education, conversation and a sense of community to our guests.

We specialize in transitions of all kinds and we encourage you to ask yourself what transition you may be embarking on now (relationships, age, gender, career, etc.)  Wherever you find yourself, we hope to assist you on your journey - mind, body, and soul.  

We believe that the first step to equality is understanding.  The first step in understanding is conversation; and we know that some of the best conversations happen over tea & haircuts.  So come on in - and feel free to ask, share, or just soak up the goodness.

P.S. Please remember to check out our  Vision and Values page before stopping in or booking an appointment to make sure we're all on the same page.

We love you already,

~Cal and Jessie
