Skullz Salon in Kent

Skullz Salon: the Best Head of Your Life
by Joanna Wilson

When I moved to northeast Ohio in 2008, I was looking for a salon that could give me a one-of-a-kind haircut.  Skullz Salon in Kent made it clear from their business name that they were doing something different than every other salon in town.  It is certainly one of my favorite places in the Akron Empire.  In those five years since I've been going there, the salon has grown to offer so much more than women's and men's hair, facials, nails, and waxing services.

This past week was the grand opening party for The House of Skullz, an annex educational space located also on South Water Street where the Skullz team and other stylists can take on their continuing education requirements to maintain and update their licenses.  But this is also a cool space for people like you and me to reserve for wedding or bachelorette parties, and birthday parties.

My favorite of the new murals in the learning annex.
On the inside, the annex looks much like Skullz Salon does--both spaces embrace an urban, hip smartness created by floor-to-ceiling spray painted/graffiti-style murals.  The murals are created by Skullz' very talented manager, Amanda.

When was the last time you looked forward to getting your hair cut or styled?  The stylists at Skullz are all focused, talented, and well-prepared to give everyone an individualized cut, color, and style--services you'll never find at the mall!  While I'm sitting in the chair getting my beauty treatment, I'm surrounded by these gorgeous wall murals, and believe it or not, it's edifying.  Now go get your wig busted at Skullz!
