HAUS Salon

You'll never hear "at least it'll grow out soon" after a trip to HAUS Salon. These stylists have honed their skills on runways and in other prestigious salons before landing at HAUS, so they know how to execute even the most difficult of cuts while still being able to clip traditional looks. It always looks like there's a crisp coat of bright, white paint on the exposed brick walls, which serve as a clean backdrop for mini gallery installations featuring local artists. And really, that's what this place is: a studio to create works of art — on your head. Before shears even come into the picture, your stylist will get to know you and the way your hair looks and feels after a wash or even after a few days, so you're sure to get a haircut that works with your lifestyle. Having a stylist who takes the time to get to know your hair is a hot commodity in a world full of cheap cuts at chain salons. At HAUS, they understand just how to take your vision and turn it into a reality, and all without cutting into your paycheck too much.
