Take Your Pick

We’ve got a thing for blondes. In fact, we love our blonde clients so much, that eight of our Wilmington stylists specialize in blonding! During your consultation, we’ll dive deep into your hair history to understand exactly how to customize your services for optimal results.

Blonding FAQ

The journey to being a blonde will vary, depending on the length, density, and the porosity of your hair, as well as your previous hair history (i.e. professional vs. at-home color). How dark is your hair, and how light do you want to go? These are all factors that we’ll tackle at your initial consultation.

It really depends on your look! For highlights to the root, we’d recommend you come in more often than for an all-over balayage. We can also do a mini-service between full and partial appointments. For best results, book your appointments as per your stylist’s recommendation, three to twelve months at a time.

Here are three tips to give you that unstoppable blonde shine:
1) Book regular trims and in-salon botanical treatments.
2) Avoid daily hot tools – and use heat protectant when you do.
3) Consistently use botanical repair products at home. Yes, you’ll receive a botanical treatment every time that you’re in the salon, but at-home care is just as important!

I love this salon! The entire team is so talented and I always look forward to my appointments. They are so upbeat and make sure I feel welcome from the moment I enter the salon. My favorite thing is the head massage they perform while shampooing my hair.

Debbie Thompson

Love the shampoo and scalp massage, very comfy salon chairs, beverages, happy music, lots of hair care available for purchase with salon professionals who will customize your products for you, so that you get the right products for your hair needs.


Scheduled with Courtney for full highlights & trim - she was AH-mazing!! Showed her a photo of what I was hoping to achieve with my visit, she replicated it seamlessly. I couldn’t be happier with the results & most certainly have found “my stylist” in the future in Courtney.

Becky Cooper

Great vibe - beautifully and minimally designed space with friendly, knowledgeable humans. Talent, skills, and Aveda. What more is there?

Robyn Shank

Experts in all they do, from beginning to end, thus the FIVE-STAR review! Citrus is amazing. The salon is beautiful, the stylists are absolute specialists from cuts to color, extensions, and things in between. BOOK THE APPOINTMENT. You will be glad you did.

Sherri H

HIGHLY recommend! Citrus is by far the best spot in town!  Pricing is excellent and I always leave more than satisfied. Thanks for listening, caring, & providing the BEST service my hair has EVER received.

Blair Lacik

BEST CUT AND COLOR. They know how to cut my curls and keep me blonde. I moved to Raleigh and I still drive down here to go to this salon if that tells you anything.

Christie Mulligan

5 stars is JUST NOT ENOUGH! I would give 100 if I could! Alex and her team of stylists are not only some of the most talented stylists I’ve met, but the salon is probably one of the most beautiful I’ve seen in this town ever! Do yourselves a favor and book your appointment.

Zahi K

My son and I both go to Citrus, and so does one of my friends (who has great hair). They are serious about their craft, talented and skilled at making people look their best. Up-to-date with latest treatments and techniques, most comfortable hair washing sinks EVER.

Casco Bay

I scheduled an appointment for my son as he is a rising Junior in high school this year. Absolutely the best decision I could have made! Incredible customer service and the Aveda Stylist was absolutely top-notch and unbelievably talented. Definitely a NYC vibe

Jenn Norris

I felt incredibly welcomed as a BPOC and Alex did a wonderful job on my Graduation Hair and Eyebrows! My hair loves Aveda products, it has been smooth and smelling amazing ever since I visited. Just overall great vibe! Will be back!
