Lox Salon
Lox has become not only the best place to get a trendy hairstyle in Knoxville, but an Old City destination for fashion shows, art markets, and even concerts.

Manicures, massages, facials, and extreme eyelash extensions are also on offer. The atmosphere is a cross between a hip boutique and your grandmother’s to-die-for retro closet, and customers are treated with the hospitality due old friends. This is a place where I’ve been offered to borrow an umbrella during a downpour and someone has run out into the rain to fetch it back from my car. (S.H.D.)

That attitude makes for an open, inviting, inclusive studio that offers classes for every level, workshops for every interest, and even an array of massage therapists to address every ache and pain.
