We love our community.
Being a part of something bigger than ourselves is what makes us stronger. We strongly believe in giving back to our community that has supported us and helped us grow over the past 27 years. We have always participated in a variety of community events, but about ten years ago, we decided we needed to do more. As a salon, we have witnessed first hand the devastating effects of breast cancer. Almost everyone we know is related to or knows someone whose life has been affected, or interrupted, by this disease. So the elon Salon Cut-A-Thon was born. Now in it’s second decade, this annual fundraiser has raised over $150,000(?), with the main beneficiary being It’s The Journey. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to come out and enjoy good food, live music and of course, lots of beautiful hair. We truly love our community, and look forward to being a part of it for many years to come.
What our clients are saying
When I first came to elon, my hair was a total wreck from letting a friend just out of beauty school color it. Lisa was fantastic and fixed my hair!
I appreciate talking over what the possibilities are for my hair during the consultation. I know that there will never be any surprises when we’re finished and that my hair will always look great.
I transferred over from another Salon about 7 years ago and couldn’t be happier. I love Janice and everyone at elon Salon. It’s fast and I’m spending half the amount of money! I love the products at elon too. Thank You.
I have been coming to Elon Salon for over 15 years and I would never go anywhere else. They always make me feel at home and I leave happy every time.
