Within a stone's throw of Bliss Salon, a large water tower sits like a sleeping giant on the horizon and reads in a welcoming scrawl, "Florence, Y'all." This is an appropriate preface for Bliss's homey hardwood floors, leather chairs, and grape-hued walls. Though friendly stylists keep things professional with Redken products and ongoing training, Bliss Salon is a casual place where folks can relax and be pampered for a few hours while completing jigsaw puzzles on their laps. Personal consultations are always complimentary, so finding out about waxing, updo services, or hair-color upgrades is a no-pressure affair.
