HAUS Salon

For anyone who's had either a drastic or horrible haircut, you know the importance of a good salon to ease you through the ordeal. HAUS Salon prides itself on expert hair artistry and quality stylists. Walk into HAUS and you'll be met at the door with someone ready to take your coat and offer you a drink, no matter how early or late you are for your appointment. If you've got a moment, take a seat and flip through the inspirational hair look books HAUS has on display, from commercial magazines to a photo-rich book of designer Alexander McQueen's collections. Speaking of designers, with an in-house art curator like local talent Emma Berg, it's no wonder this place is damn pretty to look at. Before you're even close to shearing those locks, you'll get a divine scalp massage and a sudsy shampoo while you kick back and look up at the rainbow-hued string art hanging above the sinks. Next, your stylist will actually take time to get to know you, and your hair, so you're left feeling like a new person after your cut.
