Salon Oz Opens in Bedford

Salon Oz opened earlier this summer at 363 Great Road. I recently spoke with Rachel Lehman, the owner. Rachel had previously worked for the past 9 years for a salon in Arlington but always wanted to open her own salon. Rachel grew up in Bedford, so when the opportunity arose to open a salon in Bedford, she took it. According to Rachel, many of her previous clients from Arlington have followed her to her new place.

The Salon features a modern but clean decor.

The new salon focuses entirely on hair. Rachel's vision was a health conscious and environmentally friendly salon that still offered a relaxed atmosphere. According to Rachel, one of her main goals is to ensure her clients hair stays healthy.

Both of the Stylists grew up in Bedford.

Salon Oz is closed on Monday's like most salons, but rather than take the day off, the stylists take classes to keep up on new products and the latest techniques. The Salon also offers services such as bridal party styling and group treatments for special occasions.

The Salon features a wide selection of Eufora products.

What's interesting is that the Salon Oz website features an appointment request form, where clients can request appointment dates or ask questions. According to Rachel, this features is heavily used as some of her clients are very busy and prefer to communicate electronically at a time convenient to them rather than by phone.
