Lox Salon is one of the top salons in Knoxville not only because we offer amazing hair & beauty services, but also because we give back. As an environmentally conscious salon, Lox is a proud partner of Green Circle Salons which enables our salon to recycle used hair foils, hair clippings, & even unused hair color which in turn helps us lower our impact on the environment. By supporting Lox, you are also supporting your environment & the planet.

Fun fact: GCS has helped divert over 2,000,000 lbs of salon waste from landfills & waterways since 2009! Learn more about Green Circle here: https://www.greencirclesalons.ca/

We are proud to be a certified sustainable salon & we thank you for your continued support.

So the next time you need a hair cut, think about being able to clean up oil spills with your freshly trimmed locks & give us a call.

We are pleased to announce some big changes in the salon. After almost 5 years at Lox Salon, Liv Halcomb has branched off to become her own brand. We are sad to see her go, but are equally proud of her & wish her the very best in her endeavors!

Jade Flanigan has been promoted to Salon Manager, & we look forward to seeing where she steers the salon in the near future.

Amanda Clift has advanced to our Salon Educator, & we are thrilled to have already had classes on Mens Barbering, Balayage color, & Extensions.

As we move forward in our education so that we can offer our guests the best services & latest trends, you will notice a small change in our pricing. We feel with this advancement in our team, that regardless of who you see for your service, you are receiving equal care & attention & our prices reflect such.

Jess Gierth is now in charge of the Creative aspects in the salon as our Creative Director & we have already seen how motivated & driven she is by showcasing the work of the team through our Instagram. Still haven’t decided which stylist is perfect for you? Be sure to follow us on Instagram to see some of our work, & then decide.

We are excited to share these changes with you & we look forward to seeing you soon!

Lox welcomes Shelagh Leutwiler LMT to the Lox team offering both Therapeutic & Relaxation massage.

After studying at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Shelagh Leutwiler moved to Knoxville in 2005 to complete her Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts, at The University of Tennessee. Upon graduation in 2007, she explored her love of plants and her community by working as an Americorps Member at Beardsley Community Farm from 2008-09. During that time Shelagh also worked as a caregiver for children, which inspired her to incorporate more play, creativity, and patience into her everyday life.
In 2015, Shelagh and her friend Rachel Milford, co-founded The Cattywampus Puppet Council, which creates entertaining performances about regional biota and culture, and teaches children how to make puppets and tell stories with them.  In the spring of 2017 Cattywampus Puppet Council will host Knoxville’s first ever community based puppet parade, thanks in part to a Burning Man Foundation Global Arts Grant.
Before Shelagh became a massage therapist, she spent 2 years at Pellissippi State in the pre-nursing program and was accepted to several nursing programs.  She soon realized that nursing would not provide enough hands on time with patients.  Through her job as an office assistant for chiropractor, Dr. Natalie Kurylo, Shelagh gained a deeper appreciation for holistic health care and was inspired to become a massage therapist.  Shelagh graduated from the Tennessee School of Therapeutic Massage in February 2016. She is a member of the American Massage Therapists Association.
Lou recently moved to Knoxville from Seattle, WA, where she attended the Gary Manuel Aveda Institute.
Before she did hair, Lou was a biologist. While she found that field of study interesting, she felt something was lacking.
Lou has always been passionate about doing hair. Growing up, it started with cutting her Barbie dolls hair and her own bangs, much to her mothers dismay.
As she got older she found herself cutting and coloring her friends hair in their kitchens and bathrooms.
Lou says, “It took me a long time to decide that I wanted to do hair for a living. I have always been fascinated with hairstyling, but I come from a family of academics and there was a lot of pressure to go in that same direction. Biology is wonderfully amazing, but also very linear. There isn’t much room for creativity and self-expression when you’re looking down a microscope all day. Deep down, I knew I wanted more from my career. I felt that I had to do something grandiose, like become a doctor, in order to serve my community and those around me. Eventually, I realized that I could do something I was passionate about AND channel that into being of service to others. In fact, that’s my favorite part about doing hair! Of course I love the creativity of cutting and coloring, but more than that, I LOVE making people feel beautiful, happy and relaxed. Your hair is a huge reflection of yourself. It conveys a part of your personality, tells a story about who you are and can even affect your mood. We all know that a good cut or color can make you feel like a new person! Sometimes I wish that I had become a hairstylist sooner, but looking back, I realize I may not have appreciated it as much as I do now. It truly is my passion and I hope that comes across as great hair for every guest who sits in my chair.”
In addition to being passionate about hair, Lou is a long-time vegan and conservationist. She loves that Lox uses many products that are vegan/vegetarian and that the salon is dedicated to recycling and waste reduction.
She says, “What we put in/on our bodies and into our environment is so important. I want to show people that you can use a more natural hairstyling product or color and still achieve great results.”
Lou is very excited to join the Lox family and can’t wait to have you in her chair!
Call & schedule your appointment with Lou today & receive $10 off your service when you mention this post. 
Offer expires March 31st

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
