From the genesis of three stylists, a manicurist, and massage therapist, Salon U opened its doors June of 2002 to an overwhelming reception as Birmingham Alabama's premiere Aveda Lifestyle Salon where transcendent style and beauty beyond the tradition are forged for all. Salon U’s approach towards hair, make-up, and spa services is emulated and framed against a backdrop of clean-lined, industrial decor where new and unique creations are crafted, honed, and inspired by you, for you.
