Lox Salon opened it’s doors in September of 2006, filling a niche market that Knoxvillians were unaware they were ready for. How this town has embraced change since then! We are excited to be a part of this growing and increasingly vibrant city, & could not be more proud.
This marks our 9th anniversary in the Old City and we want you to know, Knoxville, how thankful we are of all your support!
The idea behind Lox was a salon for the everyday man/woman, whose style could be changed on a whim, and yet wouldn’t cost a fortune. Located in the heart of downtown (also Knoxville’s coolest), the Old City, we are a mere 2 miles from UT . This means our everyday client is more than likely a student living on a student budget. So we incorporated the Student Discount for all our struggling trendsetters. This has allowed us to offer this guarantee: quality service at a reasonable rate.
[We also have a pretty sweet Loyalty program for all our loyal patrons. Did you know that every haircut and every color is good for 1 point towards a Free haircut? Join our loyalty program & see how soon 10 points add up! You may be pleasantly surprised.]
After all these years, we have come to the conclusion that you come to Lox Salon not just for the awesome haircuts, the amazing service, and the PBRs, but because you feel you are worth that extra $1. We agree. As a symbol of our gratitude & admiration, we are extending our student discount to include our Senior Stylists as well (please see Menu for price differences).
We understand how hard it is trying to figure out what you want to be when you grow up. You may never figure it out really, but we are here for you. We may not be able to help you on your Calculus exam, but we can make sure you look smokin’ while you try; and we’ll be a good listener when you forget to set your alarm & miss it completely. We know being a grownup is tricky and that’s why we want to help you get on your feet. So save those extra dollars, not going to a fancier salon, but on an Uber ride from your guys/girls night, maybe calling home more often, or even salon quality products that will ensure that your neon green mohawk isn’t going to fade out by St Patricks day. Either way, we got your back and we promise, you may not have found your groove this semester, but you sure do look like you have.
Not only do we here at Lox Salon strive to #keepKnoxvillebeautiful, we also help to keep our planet beautiful. Thanks to Green Circle Salons, we no longer throw out our trash at the end of the night, but send it off to be repurposed and recycled. From reusing hair to make booms for oil spills , to recycling foils and color tubes, Green Circle Salons diverted almost 390,000 pounds of waste from landfills and waterways in 2014. That calls for a round of applause!
You can be sure that from the moment you walk in to Lox, your health and beauty needs are our priority. We use only the healthiest and environmentally conscious beauty products, free of Petroleum, sulfates and synthetic fragrances. We offer a complete line of botanically based cruelty-free Vegan makeup, as well as, Ammonia free hair color. The bottles of shampoos and conditioners that line our retail shelves are all recycled and biodegradable packaging. Also, from the start of 2015 we have been able to divert 85-95% of all salon waste by partnering up with Green Circle.
So the next time you look in the mirror and think it’s time for a haircut, you may not be thinking about what sort of impact you have on the environment, but maybe you should start. Do yourself, & your planet, a solid and schedule your service at Lox Salon.
