The people in Nashville are as good looking as the music scene is flourishing. But most don’t wake up looking their Sunday best. These are the most popular hair salons that Nashvillians frequent to enhance their natural beauty—whether it’s with a new haircut, a fun hair color or learning how to apply makeup.

Lucy Pop Salon

Located in the trendy Hillsboro Village neighborhood, Lucy Pop Salon offers hair services including cuts, color melting, bridal hair and makeup, and hair extensions (upon consultation). Owned by elite stylist Renae, a 20-year beauty veteran, the salon’s vibe is fun, friendly, and creative.

The Dry House

The Dry House is a blowout salon created by stylist Ali Ryan, who has more than 17 years of styling experience. In addition to blowout services (all are $40), the salon offers scalp massages, conditioning treatments, and makeup services. Haircuts, color services, and hair extensions are also available upon consultation. The Dry House is open seven days a week.

Harlow Salon

Serving several Nashville areas, Harlow Salon lies on historic Music Row. The salon offers haircuts, color, lash extensions, spray tans, and more. All of the stylists at Harlow also specialize in bridal party hair and makeup, and the salon offers a “Princess Package,” where brides can come in with their bridal parties. With the package, the ladies enjoy brunch, mimosas, coffee, and sodas while a professional photographer captures everything on camera.

Hyde Salon

When stylist Lee Davis opened Hyde Salon, it was his vision to create a place that focused on relaxation and “at home” hospitality. The services at Hyde Salon, which include precision cuts and color, are structured on a level-based system, ranging from one to six, and the range of prices correspond with the level of the stylist’s experience. The salon sits in the rear of Jamie Nashville, which is a specialty boutique offering European and American clothing and accessories for women.

Breon Hair Salon

After spending many years working with celebrities such as Reba McEntire and George Strait on tours, Certified Redken Master Specialist Breon started Breon Hair Salon in 2003. The full-service salon offers cut, color, waxing and makeup services for men and women.

Juel Salon

Just south of Nashville, in the city of Franklin, is Juel Salon, co-owned by Johnna Bailey Bates and Ashlyn Hines Meneguzzi. The full-service hair and medical skin services salon offers hair and coloring services, has an on-site dermatologist, and two full-time aestheticians. Juel also features complimentary consultations with up to three stylists so that clients can find the best fit for their needs.

Element Salon

The upscale Element Salon in Green Hills is dedicated to providing high-quality hair care services.
