We at Salon 241 strive to be at the forefront of the salon industry by providing you with the most talented, knowledgeable, and innovative stylists Northampton has to offer. Our industry is always evolving, with new products and techniques coming out daily. Owners Katie Clifford and Andrea Waller have attended several Redken sponsored trainings and symposiums to further enhance their passion and professionalism, and they continue to place an emphasis on ongoing education in their salon by actually investing in the education of the staff. Our stylists understand the importance of keeping up with today’s trends and constantly evolving as artists to better meet your needs. Many have trained with Redken Artistic Directors of Design and Color, Chris Barrow and Sam Villa.
The salon’s space itself is something to boast about. We feel that it sets us apart from other salons in Northampton Ma. We’re located on the second floor above the Green Bean, in a renovated space that had been a salon for over 50 years. Katie and Andrea wanted to transform the outdated spot into a funky and trendy place where everyone is made to feel welcome. Exposed bricks were painted over in a vibrant orange and cool grey with floral designs dancing along the walls and ceilings. The stylists’ stations, as well as the sinks, are clean and simple with absolutely no clutter. Overall, the space is warm, relaxing, and inviting with a little dash of hip and stylish.
Teamwork is also our strong point, highly valued with our staff. So many clients rave about how pleasantly surprised they were at seeing how well the team works together. There’s no attitude or negativity behind the scenes. We really do love working with each other and collaborating new ideas and techniques. When work doesn’t really feel like work, you know you have something special. We genuinely love to be here, amongst friends, just doing what we are passionate about. You can see that we sincerely care about the people who come through the doors, and the work that goes along with it. From the owners and stylists, to the gals at the front desk, we are excited to accommodate everyone from kids to business professionals, to everyone in between.
