Willow Salon and Spa in Tacoma

Tacoma hair salons can, of course, be found all over town. From cheap haircuts on up to a luxurious spa experience, hair salons can offer just about any experience you could want. But the best hair salons have a little something special—more than a simple haircut, but instead an experience, whether that means an exceptional atmosphere, cutting edge services, excellent staff or all of the above!

Willow Salon & Spa

Modern yet warm and comfortable décor help to make this salon nestled into the North End a great place to spend an hour or two.

When you arrive, you are greeted by a friendly receptionist who often offers you a cup of tea as you wait (if you wait). The stylists here are equally as friendly and approachable and all of them are great—depending on how many years of experience they have, prices for each vary. What is most impressive here is the time that the salon is willing to devote to a simple haircut appointment—from the aromatherapy head massage to the included style at the end, you will feel special by the time you walk out the door. The list of treatments includes extensions, color, balayage color, up dos, facials, waxing, foot and leg massage and the list is always growing.

Supernova Hair and Tattoo

More than a hair salon, more than a tattoo parlor, Supernova is just plain cool. The atmosphere is super casual and the music here is often rock or punk. Especially if you want an edgier style or hair color, this is the place to go, but the stylists here can do any haircuts well.

Customers are consistently pleased with their work and high level of customer service. This place also does tattoos and piercings and is located very close to the 6th Avenue business district.

Up dos, wedding hair, color and highlights (including vivid colors like red, purple, etc), eyelash extensions, waxing, nail care, and make up are all on tap. Trustworthy stylists can help you choose which cut and style will work with your hair type.

The salon also hosts wine tastings throughout the year. Services offered here include haircuts, color, perms, style, make up, waxing, keratin smoother and straightener treatments, eyelash extensions and more. And...you know...wine.
