Meet Michell Palacio. Mother of 2 from Houston, Tx. But don’t let that fool you. She is still a VOL fan.

Cosmetology trained then got her Barbering license from Paul Mitchell, her love of continuing education comes from her passion for making people feel good about themselves. Therefore, she is always striving for excellence.

The new Barbershop addition to Lox is a great way to introduce your guy to professional grooming & product know how. We know most guys like to live on the edge & just see where the day takes them. We get that. Which is why we count on walkins & the no-bells-&-whistles haircut, unless that happens to be your style. Haircuts without a shampoo start at $21, but are still customized for your hair type & face shape. In other words, you’ll walk out looking like a million bucks more than when you walked in. Your partner , or soon to be significant other, will appreciate that.

So lets make a date. Lox is open for business. Stop in & check out all Michell has to offer you fellas. You won’t be disappointed. See you in the Barbershop!

*Gift Cards are available for purchase & make great gifts.*

We <3 curls. Curls rock. However, not everyone gets them. Here at Lox, we know the importance of not only good products but also a great haircut to keep those tresses tamed.

Our newest stylist, Corin Rosa, loves curls & knows how to successfully manage them with our Eufora Curln line. Whether it’s trying to achieve more bounce to your style, or control the fly-aways on next day hair, we got you covered. Often times it’s just knowing your hair type & what product works best with your style. Let’s start the conversation!

So in other words, if you have textured hair & have yet to find your forever stylist, come see Corin. She’ll hook you up with the cut of your dreams & school you on the right products for your hair type. Mention this post for 10% off your product with your hair service when you book with our curl specialist.

As Lox continues to grow & expand, we look forward to new things along the way. One of these things we realized that needed some revision was our menu of services & online booking.

We are excited to now be able to bring you package bundles, as well as, services a la carte for ease of booking. We know your time is valuable, which is why it is important when booking that you are aware of the amount of time it takes each stylist to do each service. Their price will reflect the demand of their time.

Please also be aware that due to previous issues with booking, we do require that all color services over an hour have a credit card on file before making a reservation. We appreciate a 24 notice if you know you cannot make your appointment. There is a $50 cancellation fee for reservations that do not show up for their appointment. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience.

At Lox we love staying up to date on the latest and greatest products and trends! We are excited to share that we will be switching our permanent color line to Pulp Riot! For almost a year now, we have been using Pulp Riot’s semi permanent line for our vibrant fashion colors and high speed toners for our blondest of blondes. Now we will also be using the permanent color line, Faction8, along with lighteners and a few styling products! Lox will always stay true to being as green as possible, so we love that all Pulp Riot products are vegan and cruelty free. It is made by hair stylists, for hair stylists so it is truly the top of the line and it is taking on the color industry with full force. With true to tone color and the best gray coverage you can get, we are so excited to use this new high end color line on you!

You’ve probably heard that Lox is a zero waste salon but what exactly does that mean?
Through Green Circle Salons, we are able to recycle our salon waste that typically would go into a landfill. How do we achieve such a task? We keep the materials separate then ship them to Green Circle Salons. It’s that simple! Hair clippings, foils, used color, color tubes and other beauty materials are being recycled to help keep our earth beautiful. Green Circle is the world’s first and North America’s only sustainable salon solution of it’s kind. Lox Salon was the first Knoxville salon to partner with this amazing company.
We love hair, the Earth and you! When you are get pampered at Lox you can feel good about being less wasteful.

Beards may seem like an easier option than shaving but they still need extra love! We have some awesome tips and products to help you out.

Before you shower, brush your beard out. That will detangle the hair and breakup any dry skin or build up. Once you are ready to shampoo and condition your hair, add your beard into the routine! It’s easy to forget that your beard needs that kind of love too. After its all fresh, clean and moisturized, you can comb it and dry it with a blow dryer or let air dry naturally. Beard hair can be very thick, coarse and curly so moisture is going to be your beard’s best friend. Products like Anchors Aweigh Bearded Sailor Beard Oil and Bearded Sailor Beard Balm will help with that! Last but not least, beard trims are a vital part of beard care. Not only can beards get split ends but they can also get unruly. Regular trims will help with controlling the shape you want and maintaining its health. Proper care will keep you and your beard looking trendy and groomed rather than scraggly and sloppy.

We love your beard and want you proudly showing it off!

 

Sun, sand, wind, water. These are things we may love at the beach, but our hair doesn’t.┬áIf you are going to the beach for vaca or if you are constantly living it up on the lake, we have a few tips for you to take care of your lovely locks.

Hair is very absorbent and salt water is very harsh on the hair so before you get into water, pour fresh clean water over your hair. Your hair will absorb the clean water instead of the ocean, lake or pool water. That way you are not getting any harsh chemicals, minerals or grime into your hair.

Whether your hair has been colored or not, the sun will lighten your hair color if you are outside for extended periods of time. Hats are your hair’s best friend to keep it safe from the sun, but if hats aren’t your style, our entire Eufora product line is UV protective.

Tangles and tears taking over? Use a conditioning treatment and a wide tooth comb to get you back to where you need to be! Moisture shampoos and conditioners are ALWAYS a good idea anyway. To try to prevent tangling, a french braid will help keep your hair in place.

The beach doesn’t have to ruin your hair! Just a few easy tips and tricks and you can keep your hair nice and healthy!
