Though Honors Salon has been in the same location for nearly three decades, its stylists’ approach to hair care has changed with the times. Up to date on the latest styles, techniques, and ways to turn hair clippings into a renewable form of energy, they create unique looks that are also easy to replicate at home. In doing so, they're backed by high-end products, including those from Redken, Moroccanoil, and Keratin Complex. In addition to standard haircare services, they add extensions, wax away unwanted hair on four body areas, and administer threading on brows.

They can also wax unwanted hair from brows, chins, lips, and sideburns trying to annex the nose.
