Hair Design & More

A hair styling appointment at Ambiance Hair Design is far more than just a hair cut. You’ll begin your experience with a shampoo and scalp massage in our award winning wash house. Feel the stress of your day drop away as you listen to relaxing music and the soothing sounds of trickling water. Then sip on a beverage of your choice in our beautifully decorated salon while you and your hair designer discuss how to create the look you want.

Our hair designers are among the best in our industry. Each participates in our ongoing continuing education program. Pricing varies depending upon the hair designers experience, reputation and demand.

Our menu is priced à la carte so you only pay for what you need! Blow-drying is included with haircuts, but it is not included with hair coloring or perm services, so please remember to schedule one when booking your color or perm. Prices reflect a standard; there may be additional charges for excessive thickness or length of hair. Curling and smoothing are also extra.

What our customers are saying

“I've been an Ambiance Hair Design customer for approximately 20 years now and have had the pleasure of knowing several different stylists during that time. All of them were highly skilled and I've never been disappointed in the hair care I've received. In recent months the owner, Dawn, has been styling my hair. I am 57 years old and have very curly, dry hair which has been becoming more frizzy and breaking easily, especially in the back. Not only has Dawn given me exceptional cuts designed for my hair type, she has also given me excellent advice on how to address my hair problems. Under her care and guidance, my hair has markedly improved. It feels healthy and looks great. I'd like to send a special thanks to Dawn and Ambiance Hair Design for years of quality hair care!”
