For some, time at a spa or salon is the ideal me-day getaway. For others, we avoid chopping our split ends like it requires a trip to the dentist.

Whichever way you lean, Northwest Arkansas’ salon scene is full of spots with a range of personalities. Check out these locally-owned beauty shops to find your perfect fix.

No frills, all skills! Studio 265 is your classic, down-home comfort salon. They offer everything you’d want from a hair salon: color, cuts, waxing, fancy ‘dos, and make-up services. These ladies know how to treat you right. 

Some days, nothing sounds more heavenly than a mani-pedi. That’s when Angel Nails becomes your answer to prayers. They’ll nail your needs, from your classic natural-nail polish, airbrush designs, dips, and repairs. And while they do take walk-ins, you may want to call ahead for the appointment. You won’t be the only one vying to get it.

Join the flock at Black Sheep Salon (but come out looking way better than a freshly-sheared lamb). This chic full-service salon and day spa is the perfect place to come and refresh your look AND your soul. They even offer microblading + tanning services. Bah-ya.

Fox & Sparrow has all the convenience of a professional hair salon with all the comforts of home. So much so that you may be tempted to move in, but please try to refrain. Unlike momma’s house where you can drop by unannounced, you will want to call ahead for an appointment here.

If you’re looking for that extra pop of color in your salon experience, swing by Salon FIX and get a taste of their bright green walls for yourself. These friendly folks have mastered the art of all things hair (included barbering, for the dudes out there!).

Bodhi Tree Salon & Spa: even the name alone is enough to conjure up peaceful thoughts of lounging under a shade tree. And that’s about how you’ll feel by the time you leave this full-service salon & spa. The team here is committed to plant-based products and, perhaps more importantly, pampering the heck out of their guests.

So whatever your pamper style may be, there’s a local salon just for you. And while you ponder between a long bob or a pixie cut (you can totally pull it off), be sure to browse Towny for some extra perks!
