Winter is finally here and she is going to be sticking around for a while. With colder weather comes drier hair, skin, and nails. It’s a burden we all battle but Lox is here to help! This winter season, we are offering essential oil treatments. Lavender, rosemary, tea tree, and peppermint go a long way!

Dry scalp? We have two essential oils scalp treatments to choose from. One utilizes rosemary, peppermint, and lavender to promote healthy scalp and hair growth. The second, uses tea tree to encourage a healthy scalp and immune system. Both options treat and prevent scalp psoriasis and dryness.

Dry hair? With the help of a conditioning treatment and argan oil, your hair will be back to normal. Our Neumoisture Intensive Masque uses Jojoba, grape seed, and yarrow extract to give your hair the moisture it’s been craving. Meanwhile, our Neusmooth Revitalizing Masque uses quinoa protein, horsetail extract, and marula seed oil to strengthen and smooth your hair. Either option will leave your hair feeling soft, fresh, and revived. Neurepair Argan Oil Treatment will take care of your hair before blowdrying or on already dry hair. Argan oil, rose hips fruit extract, and green tea extract hydrate, repair, and reduce breakage.

Dry hands or feet? Our fabulous manicurists will freshen and rejuvenate your nails, hands, and feet with the power of peppermint and rosemary. Their oils and scrubs will relax you while renewing your skin so you can have a fresh and calm holiday season.

Though we have options for dry skin, hair, and nails year round, these specials are only for this winter season! Let us take care of you for the holidays!

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.
