The Wild Side

Described as “your neighborhood glamor spot”, the Wild Side Salon offers big-city beautification for a small town price. You can get the typical set of hair style and nail treatments, but it doesn’t stop there. The Wild Side also offers unique touches, such as a custom lotion bar where guests can create their own varieties of lotion with essential oils. What’s even better? That’s complimentary. Some of the other ways the wild side goes above and beyond include their hot towel shampoos, and specialty drinks of the month for their clients. 

ReNu Medical & Spa

ReNu Medical & Spa, founded by Dr. Jacqueline Youtsos in 2016, not only offers treatments for a wide range of skin conditions, but also features a full service spa that includes a wide range of offerings. These include couples massages, body wraps, migraine relief, hot stone massages, and much more. The fact that ReNu is the only spa in the area overseen by a licensed physician also makes it unique – ensuring a combination of luxury, along with highly effective and therapeutic spa treatments. 

Luxe Lash & Hair

Sometimes your eyelashes and eyebrows need some special attention. Look no further than Luxe Lash + Hair, who specialize in lash and hair extensions, hair color correction, brow lamination, and lash lifts. Luxe also carries a wide range of Aveda products, so if that’s your preferred brand for personal care, be sure to check them out.

Salon 9

Known for their familial atmosphere and unique downtown location, Salon 9 is a 3rd generation salon run by the Hendrickson family. The salon is in a building that used to be a tire shop, which gives it a unique aesthetic and vibe. Not only does the salon provide a vast array of services (including spray tanning and makeup application), they also work with local community college students who are working to get their cosmetology licenses. 

The Beauty Bar

Nestled in the heart of downtown Pitt, the Beauty Bar features a group of highly experienced stylists that can take care of all of your cosmetic needs. We’ve heard in particular that they do a fantastic job coloring hair – so if you want to go for a totally different look – check them out. They also host pop-up boutiques on occasion, so you can do some shopping to match your new ‘do – all in one spot. The Salon itself is also known for being stylish and inviting on the inside – you can’t help but resist going in if you’re walking through downtown and get a peek in the window.
