Story Behind the Salon

Messi Heads Salon first opened in South Florida in 2008.  The salon was open until Tracy and her family moved to Knoxville in 2018, and the salon opened at the current Hardin Valley location the following year.

The salon name Messi Heads is a fun play on their last name.

Messi Heads Offers their Own Hair Products

Messi Heads decided to make their own hair products after an exhausting process trying to find the right formulations that work well.  They wanted to offer their clients the best products for optimal hair health and offering their own hair products starting in 2014 was the best solution.

All of the products they offer are paraben and sulfate free, and their customers love them!

Messi Heads stands apart from other salons because of their desire to make customers feel comfortable and relaxed when they are with them as if they were part of the family.
