Beards may seem like an easier option than shaving but they still need extra love! We have some awesome tips and products to help you out.

Before you shower, brush your beard out. That will detangle the hair and breakup any dry skin or build up. Once you are ready to shampoo and condition your hair, add your beard into the routine! It’s easy to forget that your beard needs that kind of love too. After its all fresh, clean and moisturized, you can comb it and dry it with a blow dryer or let air dry naturally. Beard hair can be very thick, coarse and curly so moisture is going to be your beard’s best friend. Products like Anchors Aweigh Bearded Sailor Beard Oil and Bearded Sailor Beard Balm will help with that! Last but not least, beard trims are a vital part of beard care. Not only can beards get split ends but they can also get unruly. Regular trims will help with controlling the shape you want and maintaining its health. Proper care will keep you and your beard looking trendy and groomed rather than scraggly and sloppy.

We love your beard and want you proudly showing it off!

 

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!

So if you are looking for a new style, a new stylist, or just want to relax while someone else shampoo & styles your hair, book your appointment with Bethany Hair today.

Whether you are a stay at home mom, a student, or a rock star, our stylists know you need to look your best. Carpools, finals, soccer practice, or playing an all nighter at your friends wedding, you need to look great regardless of your audience.

Rest assured, we have you covered. Your precision haircut, your customized color, even the products your stylist cocktails specifically for you & your style are all a part of the incredible service you will receive at Lox Salon.

However, we also know that you need a style you can afford. Which is why we make sure our consultations our tailored for your specific needs for a style you can keep up with & at a rate you can feel good about.

We will make sure whatever your lifestyle may involve, you have rockin’ hair for everyday wear.

Upon opening in 2006, our goal here at Lox Salon was a simple one: Quality hair at an affordable price. We haven’t changed much in the past decade. Thanks to your vote, we won 2016 Top Salon in Knoxville’s Mercury newspaper. We must be doing something right.

Unfortunately, however, our quantity seems to now surpass our ability & our wait list extends daily. We feel as though we may be letting you down, which is the last thing we want. We value each guest and know your time is valuable, which is why we make every effort to have you looking & feeling your very best without spending too much time or money inside the salon.

This has not been an easy decision, but we have unanimously agreed that after 10 years, 2 buildings, 6 product lines, 20+ employees, and thousands of guests, we will now offer an Apprenticeship program. This means that we can (almost) always get you in to see your preferred stylist, no wait. A stylist in training will assist you in shampooing, rinsing, and styling, but a Master stylist will still handle the detailing of cutting and coloring. These new stylists are learning all they can under the supervision of our top stylists so that they too can offer quality haircare that is the Lox standard.

Are you excited as we are!? We hope so! This means that you may need to call to schedule your next appt if you see that you cannot find one online. Just keep in mind, that you will have one more person taking care of your needs than you would find normally. We always recommend prebooking your next appointment as you leave the salon, just to be sure.

To ensure that this Apprenticeship program works to the fullest, and Lox can continue to offer quality service at an affordable price, starting Dec 1st our prices will increase by $5. Student discounts will now be offered by all stylists, including Master stylists. We are so thankful that we have been able to serve the community at the low prices we offer and hope to continue. Thanks to our loyal patrons and our Referral Program, we continue to grow and expand our team and cannot wait to see what the next year holds out for us & for you.

We hope you have a great Holiday season and look forward to seeing you in the chair soon!

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.
