5 Allentown beauty shops you need to try


As college students, it’s sometimes difficult to stop our busy schedules and think about doing things that make us feel good. There are many student discounts on spa treatments provided by Muhlenberg that get unused by students. I have compiled a list of five beauty and nail salons in the Allentown area that are affordable and great.

  1. Empire Beauty School (50-70 percent off if you show your Muhlenberg ID)

Perfect for anyone looking to get an inexpensive blowout ($7 for Muhlenberg students) for formals, graduation photos or any event you might have on campus. The salon is very clean and the staff is extremely professional and friendly. I would highly recommend it!

1634 MacArthur Rd, Whitehall, PA 18052

  1. Advanced Massage Therapy & Wellness (15 percent off if you show your Muhlenberg ID)

An amazing spot to relieve some tension and stress, especially after a big test. The most popular massage: The Healing Touch ($80.75 for Muhlenberg students) is an hour-long massage in which the masseuse uses their hands to facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Specializing in therapeutic massage therapy, the specialists are there to improve the overall health and quality of life of their clients.

1011 Brookside Rd, Suite 120 Allentown, PA 18106

  1. European Concept Salon (20 percent off if you show your Muhlenberg ID)

This salon offers everything you need: hair, nails, waxing, spray tanning, facials, makeup and even acupuncture. With an almost 5-star rating on Google Reviews, you can’t go wrong with any of the treatments. A signature manicure ($20 for Muhlenberg students) is almost half the price as other salons in the area. Walk-ins are welcome.

  1. Truth Beauty Salon (10 percent off if you show your Muhlenberg ID)

A two-minute drive from campus makes this salon the most convenient if you are looking for something quick and effortless. Offering color, hair cuts, styling, and waxing services, this salon is the perfect destination for all hair types. A women’s haircut and style (About $27 for Muhlenberg students depending on the length of hair) is essential in promoting healthy hair growth and removing the spread of split ends. Walk-ins are welcome.
