The Color Bar Salon Logo

Welcome to the Color Bar Salon

The Color Bar is located in downtown Scranton Pennsylvania.  We offer a full range of custom hair and nail services.  Our team specializes in corrective color work, blonding services and vivid color transformations.  We are a team of stylists who are passionate about making you look and feel your best.  Our services are custom services that are tailored for every individual and their hair and/or nail goals.  Our team is forever continuing our education to bring the best services to you.  

Alycia James opened The Color Bar 5 years ago with the intention of creating a space that was not like every other salon.  Everyone is welcome here and we want you to be comfortable when you visit us.  Our service menu may look a little different but it has been designed with customization in mind. We want you to look and feel like the individual that you are, and that is why our menu is designed the way it is.  If you are unsure of what service you may need, we do offer free consultations where you can discuss your hair goals with one of our stylists to ensure your desired look can be achieved, and you can map out your plan together!  

If you are a bride in need of our services, we have a bridal suite at our downtown Scranton location or you can have us come to you at your venue or home for the day of your wedding.   If you are inquiring about our bridal services, please select the bridal section under the menu and complete the form.  Our wedding coordinator will get back to you via email as soon as possible!

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards, checks and cash. We do not allow gratuities on credit cards at this time, but we do have ways for you to send some love your stylists way via Venmo or cash app!

Do you do consultations?

Yes we do offer consultations which are free of charge!

We recommend a consultation if you are new to the Color Bar and have some big changes in mind. This allows us to properly schedule your hair service so we have the proper amount of time set aside to achieve your hair goals.

Where can I park?

We do not have a parking lot, but there is a lot of street parking available throughout the day, and there is a parking lot across the street that you can also park in.  The streets and parking lot are metered with many convenient kiosks to pay at, or you can download the app PANGO and use that.   The app is easier to use if you’re going to be here longer than 2 hours because after that amount of time on the streets, you will need to go back outside and redo your meter   

Do you offer gift cards?

We sure do!  If you need one mailed to someone we can do that for you, too!
