Fall Fun Issue

It’s Fall, Ya’ll!

The leaves are turning vibrant red, yellow, and orange. Sweaters are out of hibernation. The air is crisp. And there’s a spooky feeling in the wind. All that can only mean one thing — autumn is in full swing. 


The cooler weather brings with it renewed opportunities to reflect, appreciate nature, and get together with friends to celebrate old traditions — and create new ones. This harvest season, we have all that and more planned at The Salon. 


Gather with us for pumpkin carving and potlucks, seasonal sips and tarot card reading. We’re excited to welcome fall with our community and maybe even burn a few sage bundles. More details below!               

Until next week,
