Conveniently located close to Uptown. Welcoming zen environment will whisk you away to a happy place for a portion of your day. I highly recommend Kathryn Ellwanger who is highly skilled, friendly and funny. She'll make your day! More...
This Ellwanger woman, Kat?, is possibly the DaVinci of hair design. She has skills usually reserved for US$150 and up male hair cut clients but does her magic for a fair price. If looking good is important for your work and social life, go get a cut from a true professional with a great eye for what works best for you and your image. Love the results and got compliments that very afternoon. More...

Taylor is a great listener and does a great job at achieving the exact look you're going for!

Taylor is an incredibly talented stylist. She works with you to help you get the best look for your face shape, hair type and is a joy to be around. I highly recommend her. I am very picky about my hair and I have been going to her for 3 years now and trust her completely! More...
Kathryn just might be the best stylist in Charlotte. She's someone I've trusted with my hair for years, especially before an important event or something televised. Her attention to detail and flair always make me look my best. Also, she's a fantastic therapist when I need it! Borealis is great salon and like another reviewer mentioned, it actually smells good.

Great salon, Katherine and Mandy are great stylist.
Lovely salon! Great atmosphere! Katherine did a great job on my cut and color! She was super friendly and listened to me! I'll be back!
Love my gal, Mary! Quaint building and decor. Gets warm in the summer, though.
Aurora at Borealis Salon knows her stuff and delivers every time. I trust her implicitly! She takes the time to learn about your hair, your needs, and preferences. I'm always ecstatic when I leave and can't wait to come back! Aurora is a master of the balayage technique. My color looks natural, never streaky, effortless and sun-kissed (even after a few months- a true testament of her skill!) Her cuts are excellent- they compliment my hair type and face shape. It's such a personalized experience having Aurora do your hair. Book now, you'll be so happy you did. Hair artistry at its finest- thanks Aurora! More...
Love!! I have lived in Charlotte for the past 10 years and am just now finding my perfect salon and stylist. I love that Borealis lets the stylists do things their own way and choose their own products. I go to Mary Scott and I absolutely have loved everything she has done for my hair. I always leave there looking gorgeous and she makes me feel like we are old friends when she cuts my hair. She doesn't try to push products on me and works with any budget. I can't wait until my next haircut! More...
Great little salon in a convenient location right off Morehead. Noel is fantastic -- he's been cutting my hair for five years. I typically schedule appointments on my lunch break. My co-workers were surprised -- really? You'd go straight from the salon back to work I say -- of course! My hair looks best right after I visit Noel -- I want to show it off! More...
NY fashion week hair styles have nothing on Borealis! Coming for a trim here is a HAIRAPY session that will leave you so satisfied you'll keep coming back for more. Many salons these days are all smoke a mirrors. They distract you with shiny things in hopes that you don't notice the mediocre hair style they managed to affix atop your head. Well, Borealis breaks that trend wide open. The stylists at Borealis are extremely professional and enjoy listening to some great music while you get your trim on. My personal experience has been with stylist Noel Lance. I cannot tell you how GREAT he is with color (both men's and women's)!! I've seen him take yesterday's wannabe and turn it into tomorrow's fad. If you decide to hang out with the guys and girls at Borealis, you will notice that the salon has some limited parking. Don't even try to park in the back (you will need a can opener to get out). Parking on the street can be very limited, so I'd suggest parking in the neighboring lot used by many businesses adjacent to the salon. The salon itself is an old house that is an interesting shade of seafoam green. The temperature in the back rooms can get a little warm in the summer, so please dress accordingly. Each stylist accepts credit cards and offer their own hand selected hair care product lines. You will easily make a friend or two with each visit. Everyone is very friendly and eager to satisfy. Again, if you're looking for a great color or cut, ask for Noel Lance! Tell him his Yelpers love his work!!! +1 (704) 287-8434 is his appointment line. PS they love to text if you are a busy person!!

After Aurora has now cut and colored my hair I can confidently give this salon 5 stars! Glad to have a salon that sells Perfectly Pure and does a great job with my hair.
First time coming to this Borealis and it was a great experience. Noel Lance did my cut and I could not have been morepleased! As another reviewer said, I described the general look I was going for and it ended up looking WAY better than I could have imagined. On top of being a great stylist, he is funny and personable. I like that he communicates by either text or email - whichever you prefer. This made it easy to make find an appointment that worked with my busy schedule. The salon itself is very cute. I like that each sytlist basically has their own bedroom, as it is located in an old renovated dilworth home. This makes the experience less noisy and more personable than your typical salon. Definitely give this salon a try - and ask for Noel!!! More...

I cannot say enough great things about Noel! I started going to him when he was at t reid and I followed him to Borealis. I often text to make appointments and he is always quick to respond and always finds a way to fit me in. I tell him what I envision for my hair and it always ends up looking better than I expect! The salon also has a great atmosphere and is easy find, park, etc. I highly recommend this salon and Noel! More...
This is an awesome salon! My hairdresser Kathryn moved here about a year ago and of course I moved with her. It is located in a small house in the Dilworth Area, very convenient to both uptown, Dilworth, Myers Park and Southpark areas. Each room is light and airy, and each operator has decorated it to their own taste. One of the best parts about the salon is that there is no "Salon" smell. No chemicals, perfumes, dyes etc smell! In addition to the great service you receive, they offer a big selection of magazines to read while you wait (if you have to wait at all!), and a Keurig all set up for complimentary coffee or tea. I would highly recommend that you try Borealis Salon, I don't think you will be disappointed! More...
Been seeing Noel for about a year now and I have always been so pleased with my hair! He always listens to what I want and can trust that I will love the outcome! Super convenient location too! Noel provides great service at an affordable price and is great at what he does! Glad I found him! Check him out at Borealis! More...
Same great service I've always gotten from Ashley. The new location is cute, easily accessible, and nicely decorated. I really enjoyed that I can make an appointment online instead of having to call. Highly recommended!
