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!!

This Sunday Oct.25th from 1-4pm, Knoxville is shutting down Central Street from Willow in the Old City down to Happy Holler. Sponsored by Bike Walk Knoxville, we are encouraging everyone to come bike & walk  Central Street & experience downtown from a whole new perspective.

Lox is excited to participate in this event & will be setup on the corner of Jackson Ave & Central with tunes, hair chalk, hair flashes, and a braid bar. Stop by our table & enter to win a salon gift basket or a Lox gift card. We hope to see out there!

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.

 

Its happens once a month. We should be used to the change that a 1st Friday art show brings to the space. However, we are never prepared for our annual fundraiser for MEAD MONTESSORI SCHOOL.

This event is a collection from all students in the Elementary class which, mind you, is aged 6-12 years old. Montessori believes in encompassing all ages in a classroom so they can all learn from one another. Older students mentoring younger students, all working together as stewards of their environment. How to live in community, to learn independently, to think constructively and creatively: These are the lessons of the Montessori classroom that remain with its students as they make their way in the world. The Montessori classroom radiates harmony and respect. Which is obvious in the harmonious displays of artwork at Lox Salon this month.

If you were unable to witness the amazement of creativity from this class’ art opening, I advise you to stop by and admire. I , also, urge you to remember that all proceeds solely benefit the school, so anything that ‘speaks’ to you would be advantageous to purchase; for a good cause.

All artwork will be on display for the entire month of May.
