So what started this adventure known as Illuminate?

It's pretty simple really. Friends Rob Murphy (formerly of Paragon Salon and R Murphy Salon), Chip Perry and Brandi Piana (formerly Carmen! Carmen! Salon, Salon Indigo and Fuze Salon) came together on a new concept. What if they could start a Co-Op of some of Charlotte's hottest talent and give them a fun and creative environment to flourish. What would happen? They would Illuminate.

The word of the Co-Op set fire and by the second week of opening all of the chairs were taken and the support staff duties assigned.

It's a small salon compared to some, eight stylists focusing on exactly what they love to do; hair. No massage, no facials, just really great head-turning hair.
