With the spread of the coronavirus, we are taking necessary precautions to keep everyone stylish and safe. We request that if you are feeling ill, to please reschedule your appointment as soon as possible. We will be as accommodating as we possibly can with any rescheduling. We will be waiving the cancellation fee at this time. Please note that we are taking extra precautions with cleaning in the salon and between clients. At the end of the day public health and safety are our main concerns. At this time hour hours may fluctuate as well. We will do our best to keep everyone as up to date on any changes. Thank you for understanding and please contact us if you have any questions.
As a society and as a salon, we love hair color! Light, dark, rainbow: we love it all! There are unfortunate realities when it comes to color though. At the end of the day, you are putting strong chemicals on your hair and altering it on a molecular level. As intimidating as that may sound, color doesn’t have to be a scary or damaging process. There are several guidelines you can abide by if you color your hair to protect it and keep it as healthy as possible.
Regular hair cuts! Trimming your hair on a regular schedule will help prevent breakage on your ends and prevent breakage from moving up your hair strands. 6 – 8 weeks is recommended.
Cool water! Rinsing your hair with cool to cold water will preserve your color longer and will be more gentile on your hair. Hot water opens your hair’s cuticle letting your color fall out and making your hair more susceptible to breakage.
Color safe shampoo and conditioner! Using the right products will go a long way with your hair. We provide color safe shampoos and conditioners during your service and we have several options available for retail from Neuma and Pulp Riot.
Conditioning mask! Last but certainly not least, we recommend during your color service to also receive a conditioning mask. It’s as simple as sitting for an additional 5- 10 minutes at the shampoo bowl! You can also add a conditioning treatment onto a hair cut appointment or even a blowout appointment. For this service we use Oligo Blacklight Intensive Replenishing Mask. Specifically designed for color treated hair, this strengthening mask uses the power of argan oil and 11 amino acids to moisturize and repair while also increasing shine and color retention. It will bring life back into your hair! Love it and can’t get enough? Not only is this mask available for purchase but it is also our March product of the month! Buy this mask during the month of March and receive 10% off!
You love your colored hair, so act like it! We want to help you have your dream hair so book a conditioning treatment asap! You can do so by calling, email, or the Book Now tab above.
In the beauty world it can be challenging to find a vegan version of every product you need. A smoothing treatment that doesn’t contain keratin from an animal and that actually works is a rarity. After research and trial runs, we have found one that we absolutely love and clients are loving too! Introducing OXO Organic Smoothing Treatment! Formaldehyde, ammonia, and sulfur free; this smoothing treatment is the healthiest choice for smoother, straighter, and more manageable hair. While anti-bacterial and anti-static, this treatment also moisturizes and rebuilds your cell structures.
Being a vegan salon is a priority for us and we are so happy to be able to provide these services to our community.

You may already know here at Lox we make our color magic with Pulp Riot semi and permanent hair color. But did you know that we use their shampoos and styling products too?! Pulp Riot is a newer company that is constantly growing. In the last few years they have really shaken up the beauty industry. We love that they have grown to include styling products over this past year. Pulp Riot products are always vegan and cruelty free just the way we like it. You can give the beginning of your hair routine a fresh start with three different shampoos, two conditioners, and an intensive mask. Then achieve the look of your dreams with any of the eight stylers and four finishing products. Does your day two hair need a freshen up? Theres even a dry shampoo.
For the months of January and February, if you buy a Pulp Riot shampoo and conditioner, you get a free styling product! So come in. Get a service or two. Ask your stylist about Pulp Riot and get the products you’ve been missing.
This upcoming month, our featured product will be the Neuma Body Bar! Crafted from organic olive oil, cocoanut oil, and shea butter, this hydrating hand cut bar is soothing and calming to the senses while turning your bathroom into a spa.

At Lox we love staying up to date on the latest and greatest products and trends! We are excited to share that we will be switching our permanent color line to Pulp Riot! For almost a year now, we have been using Pulp Riot’s semi permanent line for our vibrant fashion colors and high speed toners for our blondest of blondes. Now we will also be using the permanent color line, Faction8, along with lighteners and a few styling products! Lox will always stay true to being as green as possible, so we love that all Pulp Riot products are vegan and cruelty free. It is made by hair stylists, for hair stylists so it is truly the top of the line and it is taking on the color industry with full force. With true to tone color and the best gray coverage you can get, we are so excited to use this new high end color line on you!
You’ve probably heard that Lox is a zero waste salon but what exactly does that mean?
Through Green Circle Salons, we are able to recycle our salon waste that typically would go into a landfill. How do we achieve such a task? We keep the materials separate then ship them to Green Circle Salons. It’s that simple! Hair clippings, foils, used color, color tubes and other beauty materials are being recycled to help keep our earth beautiful. Green Circle is the world’s first and North America’s only sustainable salon solution of it’s kind. Lox Salon was the first Knoxville salon to partner with this amazing company.
We love hair, the Earth and you! When you are get pampered at Lox you can feel good about being less wasteful.
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!
