Image Source: Pressed Roots

Hair is important. It can make us feel good (and it can make us feel really bad). It can also be challenging to change texture entirely with the onset of rain, stubbornly deciding not to straighten or curl depending on who knows what reason. Luckily, experts are ready to show us how to care for our hair correctly.

But hair is also not just hair; the stylists working at these salons know this, too. Every appointment builds a relationship between you and your hair and the stylist you share stories with for an afternoon, who treats and transforms your crown.

Therefore, many of the following salons pride themselves on the education they offer their clients. They know how important it is to share healthy hair care tips with everyone who comes through their door, keeping you feeling better for longer.

As the party season arrives, we have compiled some of the best hair salons throughout the U.S. so you can go into the new year feeling your best.
