Originally from Atlanta,Ga Melissa moved to Knoxville in the summer of 2015 & started working at Lox Salon shortly thereafter. Melissa has over 9 years of experience behind the chair & Lox is thrilled to have her on the team. After having undergone extensive color training, she is open to being as adventurous with color as you are willing to let her. She also enjoys finding new ways in working with fine hair.
So if you are looking for a new bold color for Spring, or are just eager to try a new style, we hope you schedule your next appointment with Melissa. She will be more than happy to accommodate you!

If you have not gotten a chance to read the write up in local newspaper Knoxville Mercury, run out & grab a copy. Ben Miller, Master stylist at Lox Salon, is on the front cover! We are so proud to know such a talented stylist and have gotten to work side by side with him for the last 4 years. As his product company, Anchors Hair Co., continues to grow however it has been harder for Ben to put in the time behind the chair. Pomades are in high demand so Ben has decided to put the shears down & say goodbye to the salon environment, at least for the time being. We hate to see him go, but are so excited for the adventures his new company will bring to him & his family.
If you are one of the lucky to have met Ben and sat in his chair while he works his magic, I recommend stopping in and seeing him one last time before the holiday season. Maybe get an autographed copy of his article. We are so proud of him and can’t wait to see what next year brings! Best of luck, Ben!

Porsche Williams, Nail tech extraordinaire, keeps us warm & toasty this Holiday Season with her Custom Spa Pedicure.
This full 90min of pampering involves a relaxing aromatherapy foot soak, followed by nail shaping and cuticle care. Next, an exfoliating sugar scrub is applied to replace dry, calloused feet with smooth, soft skin. Finally, detox and destress with an antioxidant-rich moisturizing mud mask massaged into legs & feet, then wrapped with a hot towel for the full spa experience. Finish with the polish of your choice and you are as good as new! A complimentary adult beverage is included and a warm neck pillow to ensure you fully relax and unwind.
Beat the winter blues by calling to schedule your Spa Pedicure toady!
This past year we have seen a lot of growth here at Lox Salon. We have welcomed 2 new stylists, Melissa Duda & Chelsea LeBlanc, and a new front desk manager, Justin Roberts. We have celebrated 2 weddings and a birth. We have expanded to include a nail station and a massage room.We have added a whole new line of all natural Mens’ products. 2015 has been a good year for changes. With all that change, however, comes the bad with the good.
In recent months, we had to say goodbye to two amazing employees: Mandi Lawson ,LMT and Megan Moskowitz, Stylist & Educator. We were sad to see them go but excited about the opportunities they had been offered to expand in their careers. Megan is now a Salon Manager, as well as, Educator for Eufora Haircare back in her hometown of California. While Mandi, when she is not busy massaging for UT’s athletic team, she can be found working part time at Meadow Sweet on Gay St. We miss them both and the wonderful, positive spirit they contributed to the salon environment. We congratulate them both on their successful careers and wish them the very best!
Miss you Guys!-The Lox Team
Earlier this month 4 year Lox stylist, Liv Halcomb, came to me with a proposition. She loves her job but needed another creative outlet. We often have photo shoots with the team and sponsor charity events at the salon, but she wanted to combine the 2 & host them more often. What we needed was a Creative Team & she wanted to lead it. I couldn’t be more excited or proud. Lox had expanded to 14 employees in the past year and that can be hard to manage. Here was someone who was willing to take on that challenge, & was eager to do so. I gave an enthusiastic, Yes!
If you have not had the pleasure of getting to know Liv personally, here are a few questions she was willing to answer about herself & her newly acquired position.
Lox: How long have you been in this industry?
Liv: 6 years
Lox: How did you first get inspired to pursue a career in the hair industry?
Liv: I’ve always been an artist and I thought going into this industry would be a great way to translate art into a career. 6 years later I love my career even more than I could have imagined I would.
Lox would like to give a shout out to our favorite male stylist and his beautiful wife & congratulate them on their nuptials earlier this month. Their wedding could not have been more beautiful & we were happy to be a part of their big day. Ben & Erin, we love you guys!!
