Despite the 90 degree temperatures, fall is just around the corner! We all know that means sweaters, pumpkins and of course, UT Football. But at Lox, we have even more in store!

Friday, September 21st is Parking Day! Come on down to Gay Street where the parking spots will be transformed into mini parks and public spaces that most urban area’s are lacking. It is an internationally recognized event that came to be in San Francisco in 2005. Catch us on the corner of Gay Street an Summit Hill Drive from 10AM to 3PM!

New to our community is the Old City Market! From 11AM – 4PM on the second Saturday, local and regional artists and makers will be lining W.

September 8th was the first market and we can not wait for future markets to come! We are open 10AM-5PM on Saturdays so you can get your new fall look and shop on the same block!

As a salon we value continued education and fresh inspiration. October 21st and 22nd the Lox Stars will be in Birmingham, Alabama for the Premier Birmingham Hair Show!

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.
