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.
