It’s 2018 & it’s off to a cold start! We hope you all enjoyed this past holiday season & are keeping warm & cozy. It was great to see everyone for their holiday styling & were thankful for all the holiday cards we received. You guys rock!
The month of January is not only cold, but seems to slow down for us here at Lox Salon. This year our Resolution is to use that down time to focus on education & photo shoots. That being said, we need models to help us in our classes & makeovers. Are you looking for a new style? Want to reinvent your color? We could use you!
Send us a photo of yourself & a brief description of your lifestyle. Let us know if you are looking for a new haircut or color & let us do the rest!
We hope we can team up with you & make this year the best You ever!

Her favorite past time is attending music festivals & concerts. Her 7 yr old son, Zeke, gets her going in the morning & her love for Iced Vanilla Lattes keeps her going throughout the busy workday.
………. She is passionate about long hair styling, updos, & color. If you want something edgy & bold, Katie would love to work with you. Feel free to book with her for all your color & styling needs. You can also find her every Tuesday perfecting her technique at our cutting classes at Lox Salon.
Lox Salon is one of the top salons in Knoxville not only because we offer amazing hair & beauty services, but also because we give back. As an environmentally conscious salon, Lox is a proud partner of Green Circle Salons which enables our salon to recycle used hair foils, hair clippings, & even unused hair color which in turn helps us lower our impact on the environment. By supporting Lox, you are also supporting your environment & the planet.

We are proud to be a certified sustainable salon & we thank you for your continued support.

We are pleased to announce some big changes in the salon. After almost 5 years at Lox Salon, Liv Halcomb has branched off to become her own brand. We are sad to see her go, but are equally proud of her & wish her the very best in her endeavors!
Jade Flanigan has been promoted to Salon Manager, & we look forward to seeing where she steers the salon in the near future.
Amanda Clift has advanced to our Salon Educator, & we are thrilled to have already had classes on Mens Barbering, Balayage color, & Extensions.
As we move forward in our education so that we can offer our guests the best services & latest trends, you will notice a small change in our pricing. We feel with this advancement in our team, that regardless of who you see for your service, you are receiving equal care & attention & our prices reflect such.
Jess Gierth is now in charge of the Creative aspects in the salon as our Creative Director & we have already seen how motivated & driven she is by showcasing the work of the team through our Instagram. Still haven’t decided which stylist is perfect for you? Be sure to follow us on Instagram to see some of our work, & then decide.
We are excited to share these changes with you & we look forward to seeing you soon!

We call them “Masters” because of the hard work & dedication they have continually put forth in their careers. Every new stylist graduates Cosmetology School with a degree of ‘mastery’ over their new found craft. Only a few out of each graduating class really stick with it & push themselves to grow with the industry. These are the ones who truly have a passion & you can see it in their work. We consider ourselves lucky to have found 9 of these like amazing & talented artists to welcome to the Lox team.
This month we welcome Amanda Clift as our newest Master Stylist. After 3 years behind the chair at Lox & numerous hours of continuing education, we look forward to all new adventures of hair styling & coloring with this amazing stylist.
Color Melting is the newest hair color trend for 2017. We suggest you ask for Amanda.
The First Friday of every month is an extraordinary time in Downtown Knoxville. Local businesses in and around downtown open their doors, & specifically their walls, to local artists’ work on display for the evenings Art Walk. Most of these businesses are not galleries themselves, but rather restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops, & yes, even Salons.
If you have yet to experience First Friday, we suggest you start this week. Lox Salon is joining forces with The Basement Art Studio, Good Golly Tamale, & Gratitude bar to support over 40 different female artists in the Nasty Woman Art Exhibit opening this Friday at 6pm. This exhibit will serve as a fundraiser for the Knoxville Family Justice Center & Girls Rock Camp. 100% of the proceeds from the sale or artwork & submission fees will go to these charities that support & empower women.
“The idea of the Nasty Women Art Exhibit was borne from a group of NYC artists who wanted to show solidarity for women’s rights. The Knoxville exhibit is one of many national exhibitions organized to demonstrate solidarity among female artists and allies who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, women’s healthcare rights, immigration rights, racial and environmental justice. It also serves as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights. The first exhibit was at a warehouse in Brooklyn in January 2017 and served as a fundraiser for women’s health, raising over $43,000 for the cause. Since then Nasty Women exhibits have spread throughout the globe.”
Lox will also be hosting a Pop Up Shop this Friday & Saturday which will include clothing, accessories, as well as specialty hair products & tools, of which a portion of the proceeds will also benefit the KFJC.
We hope you can make it out to this event! It will be one you won’t want to miss.
As a cutting edge salon, we strive to keep up with the latest trends & techniques to keep you, our guest, looking your best & as stylish as ever. Continuing education is a key component to staying on trend for our stylists. You can trust that Lox stylists are getting top notch education from salon professionals including cut, coloring, styling & product knowledge.
Each stylist is required to attend training throughout the year in order to advance in their hair styling abilities & skills. As they do so, you will note their progress as they move up on the tiered level system we have in place. Our goal is to have each stylist achieve Master Stylist level. We are confident that regardless of stylist, each guest will receive the highest quality of care & attention.
This month, we are excited to announce Chelsea LeBlanc & Ana Bateman as our newest Senior Stylists. If you haven’t already had the chance, we highly recommend seeing either of these talented ladies for your next service. They would be happy to meet you & your hair needs!
