Sun, sand, wind, water. These are things we may love at the beach, but our hair doesn’t. If you are going to the beach for vaca or if you are constantly living it up on the lake, we have a few tips for you to take care of your lovely locks.

Hair is very absorbent and salt water is very harsh on the hair so before you get into water, pour fresh clean water over your hair. Your hair will absorb the clean water instead of the ocean, lake or pool water. That way you are not getting any harsh chemicals, minerals or grime into your hair.

Whether your hair has been colored or not, the sun will lighten your hair color if you are outside for extended periods of time. Hats are your hair’s best friend to keep it safe from the sun, but if hats aren’t your style, our entire Eufora product line is UV protective.

Tangles and tears taking over? Use a conditioning treatment and a wide tooth comb to get you back to where you need to be! Moisture shampoos and conditioners are ALWAYS a good idea anyway. To try to prevent tangling, a french braid will help keep your hair in place.

The beach doesn’t have to ruin your hair! Just a few easy tips and tricks and you can keep your hair nice and healthy!

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.
