Spring is the season of renewal and change, so why not give yourself a fresh look to celebrate? A new salon in Tulsa offers all the services you need to feel rejuvenated and look your best.
Clary Sage Salon & Spa opened at the beginning of February at 101st and Riverside. The salon was inspired by the operations at Clary Sage College, which is operated by the same owner and founder, Teresa Knox. “We operate a salon at the college that is used as a training laboratory for cosmetology, esthetics, nail technology, and massage students. This salon is the first prototype of its kind and will be an additional training site for the college students and employees,” said Teresa. “Furthermore, it will provide employment opportunities for graduates. The salon is positioned to be a franchise, in which that business opportunity will become available to the public during the summer of 2012.”
The salon caters to women, men, teens, children and seniors. Services are offered for skin, hair and nails. Facials, waxing, massage, hair color and highlights, and hair cuts are just a few of the many services offered. Also, “add-ons” to almost any service can be included for a small fee. Aromatherapy, hot stone, scalp massage and deep conditioning treatment are just a few add-ons available.
“Clary Sage Salon has an incredible team of industry professionals,” says Teresa. All are licensed professionals, including two master instructors on staff. “We have the educational support from not only Clary Sage College, but our main campus, Community Care College. Our team is uniquely trained in advanced cutting and coloring techniques, as well as the latest strategies in skin care and massage modalities.”
In addition, Clary Sage has formulated, developed and manufactured a unique line of salon-quality skin care and hair care products available for purchase. “Whether you have coarse, unruly hair or fine, thinning hair, we have a product for you,” says Teresa. “We also have professional skin care products to address acne-prone skin, normal skin, and aging skin types.” The salon also carries an Italian made and manufactured color line called Affinage that is only available in Oklahoma at Clary Sage Salon & Spa.
The atmosphere at Clary Sage Salon is friendly and “very customer focused,” according to Teresa. The layout is elegant and simple. “Our salon and spa furniture was custom made in Italy, where comfort and ergonomic design focuses on what is best for our clients. We want to exceed customer expectations. We realize those we serve are extremely busy with life, so we desire to be efficient and time conscious while adding increased value to our clients’ investment. We are driven by our mission, vision, and value system.” Appointments are available Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Call (918) 995-2777 to schedule your appointment for your new spring look!
