Alchemy…a Salon comprises the talents of two unlikely women.  They came together in an epic saga stretching over 32 years of combined experience in the salon industry. (Cue dramatic music!)

In reality, Sa’dia and Paulette are down-to-earth people who were touched by serendipity.  After working in salon environments that somehow left them wanting more, they decided to open Alchemy in June of 2010.

They wanted a haven of quiet relaxation, quality services, and quirky individuality.

We promise that your experience at Alchemy will be a memorable one.  As a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, we strive to provide exemplary customer service, personalized styling advice, and the relaxation you crave in a hectic world.  We’d like to think that’s pretty epic.

 While you sip a refreshing glass of wine, or a steaming latte, we will start with a one-on-one consultation with an experienced stylist.  With our signature formula: 1 part inspiration + 2 parts technique + a dash of heart and soul, we will bring your hair wishes to light.

Not your “local gossip shop” your secrets are safe with us! We appreciate and value our customers at Alchemy, and we stand by our work. We will do our best to ensure you are satisfied with your service.

Alchemy offers a variety of services. Please see our {Ladies} and {Gents} menus for prices and description of hair services, as well as {Nails+Skin} for other services.

I have been a client at Alchemy since the business began and I couldn't even consider going somewhere else. Alchemy is much more than a place to get my hair cut. I feel like a part of the family. ~ Tom
