Salon Luxe is a fashion-forward hair salon staffed by a team of hair whisperers who are committed to leaving clients happier than the day they were hatched. Each haircut (a $40+ value) begins with a thorough consultation where hair owner and hair cutter can braid their respective visions into a sleek, intertwined concept. The collaboration results in a pleasing new 'do that is further enhanced with a partial highlight (a $75+ value) or full color (a $55+ value) using natural, 99% plant-derived Aveda products.

The trio of services is performed in the salon's aesthetically pleasing, turquoise-tinted interior that features comfy chairs sprouting from clean wood floors.
