It takes me anywhere between 15 and 45minutes to look good in the morning, depending on if it is hair wash day.

Yes, even hairstylists are allowed to have bad hair days.

Happy Clients

T – Spearfish

Accents is THE salon and day spa in the area.  The stylists are professional and create a fun and relaxing environment in a beautiful, modern setting.  I love having all the services I need in one place.  They even have clothing, handbags and a gift shop where I can check off other errands while my hair is processing!  Sonya cuts and colors hair better than anyone at more expensive salons in the larger cities where I once lived.  Highly recommend Accents!
 – Debbie H.

“I have been going to Accents for over 8 years. The owner and beauticians are very, very friendly. If you need a place to go, relax and leave feeling beautiful- this is the place.

The receptionist is extremely helpful in making appointments and keeping clients informed.

They also have a unique gift shop to stroll in after your appointment.”
