Harman

Owner & Master Colorist
Harman began his career in the beauty industry as an apprentice in a Reston Town Center Salon. Today, he is the owner of Salon Alure, Purcellville, VA: a 1500 square foot Aveda Concept Salon and Spa. Harman’s road to success began in 1995, while working under the Danial Benzami owner of Le Shoppe, Va. After 5 years, Harman moved to Loudon County where within a year, the vision of owning his own salon began. His first venture was an intimate 300 square foot, four-chair salon in Middleburg, VA.
By his second anniversary; Harman had outgrown the original space. Fortunately, another space became available. Harman and his staff, which had doubled in the second year, moved into a 1500 square foot salon. Harman’s ultimate dream to make a true family lifestyle salon became a reality, with the opening of his 1500 square foot salon spa at the East Main Street, Purcellville, VA. Harman has 3 beautiful kids and lives with his family in Purcellville.
