Kim Harper Salon and Spa is committed to ethical and eco-friendly beauty products and services.

Sustainable. Ethical. Eco-friendly. For many, these are just trendy terms, but for the management, stylists and estheticians of Kim Harper Salon and Spa, they describe the environment, services and products provided every day for their clients.

Salon Director, Tara Thal explains, “Kim, our owner, was way ahead of others when it came to researching and providing high quality, eco-friendly products and salon services in a sustainable environment.”

“We are committed to continually educating our stylists. It is vital to keeping our services above and beyond what other salons provide,” adds Senior Stylist and Educator, Heather Hogan.

Sixteen stylists and two estheticians provide a full array of hair and skin services and products. Personal consultations which include budgetary and lifestyle considerations are key to delivering the best service to each client.

The recently remodeled salon features huge picture windows, comfy sitting nooks and unique stylists’ stations, creating a welcoming, relaxing and professional experience.

“Our salon is very customer friendly and community-minded. We are upscale, but comfortable and approachable,” Heather says.
