Payton Hicks


Hi! My name is Payton and I'm so happy you're here! I was born and raised in Albuquerque and have two pups and live with the love of my life, my husband Brett. I opened The PH Bar in April of 2021 because I dreamed of a space where I could create beautiful hair in a comfy cozy environment and be surrounded by people in this industry with the same goal. Hair has always been a passion of mine. I worked in salons from a young age and I knew I wanted to work behind the chair. I have been in the hair industry in Albuquerque for five years and I am so grateful to have found a craft I truly love. Making my guests feel beautiful  and being able to give them a new found confidence with their hair gives me so much joy and fulfillment as a stylist. The most important thing for me when it comes to my guests and their hair is to keep things as healthy as possible and to educate my clients on proper at home care. I want my guests to have all the right tools and knowledge so their hair can look its best outside of the salon and in-between appointments

I am certified in Invisible Bead Extensions® and partnered with Lucky Locks® hair sparkles which are both another passion of mine.  I believe these methods are the healthiest there are when it comes to extensions and that is why I love them so much. I am currently going through my masters certification for IBE. I have been certified with IBE for over a year and I am excited to be continuing my education on extensions. I strive to give my clients the best colors, cuts, and extension applications possible. The PH Bar is a space that allows us to be creative and make people feel beautiful and I'm happy I get to share that experience with you.

"Payton is a phenomenal stylist! Knowledgeable and patient when it comes to teaching and explaining hair extension care. I am new to extensions and had a hundred questions and she answered them all and was happy to do so! The best decision I’ve made with my hair in a long time!"


"I always leave feeling heard and completely refreshed! Payton’s education background is extensive, this shows in her modern coloring techniques and extension installs. I really can’t say enough good things about her and the PH Bar."


"Payton is truly a hair GENIUS! I just got my first set of IBE extensions, highlights, and a cut with her and I am in love! She took so much time with my hair, and was methodical with every detail. She is truly amazing, and I am so grateful to have found the PH Bar. Payton has a gorgeous, relaxing space, that is comfortable and inviting. I highly recommend!"
