Karen Allen Salon opened in 2000 with a goal to create an elevated space for elite hair and skin services, provided by professionals who are passionate about their craft.

Today, both locations of Karen Allen Salon + Spa are fully realized, premium Aveda salon spas renowned for advanced cut and color methods and fashion-forward styling. Both specialize in custom services designed to complement the unique aesthetic and personality of each guest. Our skin-care specialists are proficient in dermal health, wellness, and repair. Every member of our team is skilled in makeup art.

Our team commits fully to ongoing advanced education. They’re eager to stay on top of trends so they can execute up-to-the-minute styles and techniques found right now on catwalks and fashion magazines.

We are trained in the art of communication. This ensures that your results meet (and exceed) expectations. Every team member is knowledgeable about the retail sold in Karen Allen Salon + Spa. We’re committed to pairing our guests with the correct products, and teaching how they are used … so our guests enjoy professional results in between appointments.

Impeccable customer service is a foundation of the Karen Allen Salon + Spa culture. For our valued guests, each appointment is more than an opportunity to update and rejuvenate their appearance. It’s a chance to relax, be catered to, and bask in the “me time” that is all too rare in their busy lives.

We are known for giving back to the community. When you support Karen Allen Salon + Spa, you support a business that commits time, money and energy to causes dear to our hearts — especially organizations that lift up women, children, and the environment.

As an Aveda Lifestyle Salon Spa, we care for the world we live in, practice ecological responsibility, and set an example of professional excellence. We use only Aveda’s premium products crafted with pure botanical essences, using sustainably sourced and organic ingredients.

Above all, at Karen Allen Salon + Spa, we strive to make your day — and we come together as a team to make sure that we do.



Our mission is to create an experience where you can escape from your everyday routines and the stresses that come with them. To create this experience we’ve assembled a team of individuals who are skilled, committed, and believe in our mission.
