Why do I need to provide my credit card information to book an appointment?
We’re glad you asked! While many of our guests are deeply respectful of our time, it is unfortunate that there are some who do not respect the appointment process. At Xanadu Salon & Color Bar we are fortunate to serve many guests, some of whom wait several weeks or even months, for an appointment. We kindly ask for your up-to-date credit card information to ensure your scheduled booking, and in order to protect the valuable time of our team. For more information, please refer to our cancellation policy.
*Credit Card Security – Credit Card Storage, Reservations and Merchant Processing: Our booking system is proud to be Level 1 PCI compliant–the highest form of credit card security in the industry–which means that we encrypt all customer credit card data stored in our system.
What happens if I don’t love my hair?
At Xanadu Salon & Color Bar, we understand that sometimes small adjustments here and there may be needed to reach your hair goal. That’s why we’re always here to go above and beyond so that you’re loving the result of your hair. As a small business, we want to hear from you, and genuinely want to thank you for giving us the opportunity to make things right.
If ever you’re not fully loving your hair, don’t hesitate and don’t second guess - reach out to us directly. We kindly ask that you please reach out to us within 1 week of your original service so that we can do everything we can to have you feeling and looking like your very best self!
What is your cancellation policy?
We work hard to maximize all of our available appointments each day. When you cancel without us being able to fill your spot (less than 24 hours notice) we’re in a jam. The kind of jam that typically doesn't allow for us to fill it with our wait -listed clients. As ambitious, hardworking people that LOVE making the world a prettier place, that drives us nutty.
IF you have to cancel, please give us the courtesy of a 24 hours notice, and we’ll be happy to see you at your next appointment. Less than 24 hours notice, we’ll still be happy to see you at your next appointment, but we’re going to charge you in accordance with our policy.

What type of products do you use?
As artists and industry innovators, our tools are everything. We love having plenty of mediums (brands) to express our art! We use Oligo Calura Permanent and Gloss Color. Additionally, we choose Oligo Blacklight as our preferred Lightening Brand.
We Retail : Oligo, Blacklight, GOLD, Eufora, Nuema, Current (Reef Safe), Leaf and Flower, Brazillian Blowout, and Innerscence Texture Line.
What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards, debit cards, cash, and gift cards.
What’s the difference between a half and full head of highlights?
We get it- understanding the difference between a half and full head of highlights can be confusing when you’re not a stylist.
If this is your first time getting highlights or it’s been a long time since your last appointment (more than 6 months), we generally recommend booking a full head instead of a half. That’s because the full head means you’ll have highlights throughout your hair- the top, the sides, and the back! If you’re needing a half head of highlights, keep in mind that your stylist will be focusing on the top and sides of your hair and that the back section will be untouched. Remember, when in doubt, give us a call or book a consultation!
What’s the difference between all over color and lightening hair?
All over color includes a permanent and/or demi color applied root to ends to achieve an overall solid color. Highlights are not included. It is generally used to achieve more depth and richness, or to go darker all over. It’s also great for all over grey coverage.
Our Platinum Blonde is our lightening service from scalp to ends with no foils followed by a toner.
Remember, when in doubt, give us a call or book a consultation!
Why does my appointment require so much time?
It’s simple, really. We would rather have more time and not need it than need more time and not have it! That’s why our stylists never rush and never compromise the integrity of your hair. Although we tend to think of our team as hair magicians, creating modern styles typically takes multiple hours and/or multiple sessions. Please keep in mind that our set timing typically reflects the amount of time that your stylist will need in order to achieve your desired look. Our most sought-after color services typically take anywhere from 2.5 to 4 hours and can vary depending on your hair length, density and overall goals. If you’re concerned about timing or would like to learn more, don’t hesitate to contact our team or book a consultation.
What’s included in my service?
We’re so happy that you asked! At Xanadu Salon & Color Bar, we’re all about making sure that every experience is nothing short of incredible. This is why Most of our services include a Complimentary Wash, Trim/Dusting, Blowout, and Style. *Additional charge may apply for extra thermal work.
Our stylists are trained to know exactly what it takes to make your hair dreams come true. That’s why if your hair requires a little extra something - something that isn’t included in your service, such as a conditioning or smoothing treatment, additional toning techniques, or another unscheduled service, we’ll always make a professional recommendation and keep you in the loop every step of the way.
What is a Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Treatment?
Through the use of breakthrough bonding technologies, this customizable smoothing treatment actually improves the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle for up to 12 weeks with proper at home product and care!
The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.
