WHAT WE DO

Salon Alon is a full-service salon dedicated to giving you confidence in your hair. Everything we do is focused on the specific needs and circumstances of each of our customers, so whether you're looking for a new style or , whether you need treatment to improve your hair, or whether you dealing with hair loss, Salon Alon can create a solution that works for you. 

If you can’t remember what it felt like to run your fingers through your hair – or better yet, when someone else did – it’s time for you to visit Salon Alon and find out how we can help bring back that feeling. Losing your hair is not an experience that anyone signs up for willingly. Our hair is so much part of our identity that its loss can make us feel incomplete and less confident. And for anyone who suffers from hair loss knows only too well, finding out what solutions are available, let alone figuring out how to choose the right one, can be a frustrating and demoralizing process.

At Salon Alon, there is no such thing as “one size fits all”. We understand that each hair loss condition, each person experiencing hair loss, is unique. We work with each customer to create a personalized solution that addresses their specific circumstances and needs. We treat all types and stages of hair loss from through progressive loss, to advanced conditions including total hair loss. What many hair loss sufferers don't know is that there are hair replacement solutions for every stage of hair loss. We can create solutions regardless of the cause of hair loss and, in many cases, create and treatment programs that can restore and improve your hair.

And, just as importantly, we can cut, style and even your hair and hair loss solutions you the look you want.

About Hair Loss Caused By Genetics 

It’s not an old wives’ tale—hair loss and thinning are affected by genetics, though not in the mythic way many believe. If your maternal grandfather is bald, for example, it does not automatically mean you will also experience hair loss. Hair loss and thinning in both men and women can be inherited from either parent.
 
Inherited traits from both or either sides of your family can make you more vulnerable to male or female pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia). Hair thinning happens naturally as you age, but possessing these genes means you have a greater chance of experiencing more substantial, earlier-onset thinning.

How Does Hereditary Hair Loss Affect Men?

Genetics is one of the leading causes of hair loss in men. One study found that 79% of male pattern baldness is related to inherited genes—many of which dictate sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a testosterone-produced hormone.

DHT sensitivity leads to weakened hair follicles, causing strands to become shorter and thinner. This will trigger thinning around the crown and men will see more of a pronounced M-shaped hairline developing, as well as a lighter pigment. You won’t lose the hair around the back and sides of your head, though.

This sensitivity to DHT and the beginning of hair thinning can start as soon as you hit puberty. It has been found that 20% of men experience substantial thinning by the age of 20, and this percentage will increase with age. Of course, there are other causes of hair loss and thinning for both sexes, but for men, genetics do play a critical role.

If you’re getting out of the shower and worrying about hair thinning daily. Check out our recommended hairstyles, treatments and solutions for men with thin hair.

How Does Hereditary Hair Loss Affect Women? 

Even though men often experience hair loss at a far younger age, female pattern baldness due to genetics can occur as women become older. Hair thinning can begin as puberty ends, but this is unlikely.

As is the case for men, genes coming from either parent can result in DHT sensitivity, but for women, estrogen in the body will effectively counter this until menopause, when estrogen levels drop. At this point, sensitivity to DHT becomes more apparent. Unlike men, hair thinning will not show on the hairline or crown, but within hair parting.

It can be concerning if you notice your hair thinning, but we have some hairstyle suggestions for women with thinning hair. Whether you’re looking for the perfect ponytail or beautiful beachy waves, consult with our master stylist.

Can You Treat Genetic Hair Loss?

While you can’t cure genetic hair loss, there are steps you can take to tackle hair thinning. We offer several approaches, so you can help your hair look great and grow healthily from the start.

With the application of our treatments and solutions, we can help you effectively combat hair thinning.

COVID-19 UPDATE

We care deeply about the health and safety of our customers, employees, and stylists. That is why we want to share the steps we are taking at our salon location.

We are closely monitoring the current situation with COVID-19 (the coronavirus) and are committed to taking appropriate steps to navigate this challenging time.

Our Salon

When you visit our salons, we strive to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. Getting your hair cut, colored, or styled should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience for you and your stylist.

Please know that cleanliness and sanitization have always been a big part of running a great hair salon, and we already follow strict guidelines from local health departments. However, due to the current situation, we are increasing and adding to our current supply of cleaning and sanitizing materials to ensure our stylists can clean and disinfect the salon even more thoroughly throughout the course of the day.

Our Employees

As with much of the advice you have seen from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we recommend everyone be conscious of this potential health risk and follow official preventative recommendations. We believe the CDC website is the best destination for that advice.)

In accordance with the CDC’s protocol, we have asked all employees displaying symptoms to avoid coming to work for a period of 14 days. This same guidance is in place for those who live in a household with members who have visited, or who have themselves visited, China, Iran, Italy, or South Korea.

Our Customers

We kindly request that if you are not feeling well, please reschedule your visit for when you are feeling better for the safety of our team and other customers.

As we work through this together, we are committed to providing customers with the information they need to make informed decisions around their salon services.

Thank you from everyone at Salon Alon and your local salon. We value your business and the trust you place in all of us.
