Charles Renn is originally from Salinas, CA and moved down to Los Angeles in 2006 to open The Hive salons with his sister and business partner, Lissa. After studying Astronomy at UMass Amherst, he learned business and management from the Hertz Corp. Upon returning home from a 3 month Spanish crash course in Argentina, Charles and Lissa began putting together plans to move their careers forward and together opened the doors of The Hive.

His favorite Davines product is the Medium Hold Pliable Paste for its natural dry look, but also loves the cleansing properties of the Purifying Shampoo.

When away from the salon, Charles spends his time traveling, rock climbing, and anything else that takes him outdoors.
