Welcome to Elle. An Aveda Concept Salon dedicated to the power of natural beauty.

Our salon was founded in 2006 and has been a dedicated Aveda Concept Salon since the beginning. We believe in the power of natural beauty, that being beautiful is as simple as being yourself. It's our job to bring that inner radiance out, to make sure everyone who sits in our chairs feel cared for, nurtured, and happy.

We love being part of the energy and creativity of our community and, like most who are “Lake Living” to the fullest, see the ride up and down Route 12 between our two locations as a chance to fully take in everything our area has to offer.

Our Michigan City, Indiana, flagship is nestled in the eclectic Uptown Arts District neighborhood amid galleries, boutiques, and vintage shops that we’ve watched grow and thrive around us since 2007. And now, our new location, just opened in May 2018 in the heart of downtown New Buffalo, Michigan, takes us into Harbor Country where bopping up and down Whittaker Street for shopping, cute lunch spots, and great coffee makes for a perfect afternoon after your service!

"The positivity in our salon starts with our stylists." Elle hook

Stylists. Agents of personal care. Magic makers. No team is more fierce with a bottle of essential oils and a pair of scissors. Let us know what you're looking for from your stylist and we'll happily help you find a perfect match.

Cutting Edge Continuing Education

We believe that you can never learn too much and that a good stylist evolves as style evolves. The science, technique and trends behind the way we take care of hair, skin, body and soul are always changing. So at Elle we try to stay on top of 'what's new' by regularly attending Aveda Continuing Education programs multiple times each year - plus we love a good girls trip. ;-)

Doing Good Everyday: Our Way is The Aveda Way

Beauty comes from within - that's why we whole-heartedly embrace Aveda's mission to "care for the world we live in" as our own. We live it and we breathe it.
