In 1987, Akari started out as a salon in Portland, Maine, offering just cuts and color. Over 30 years later, still located in Maine’s historic Old Port, we have evolved and expanded our brand, becoming a place that caters to Portland’s cultural tastes. We provide a staff of diverse, talented professionals with inspiring styles, offering everything under one roof: classic and modern cuts, fresh or bold color, polished and creative nail care, relaxing and therapeutic massage, treatments to bring out glowing skin and cutting–edge results based medi spa treatments. Visiting Akari is an escape where guests can feel at ease.

Our passionate team of carefully selected professionals are each a master of their craft – working together to make you look, feel and live beautifully. Providers work with your individual style to bring out your own true beauty. Akari is an environment where we seek to create a comfortable and carefree ambiance, in a space of refined, visual beauty. Our committed front desk consultants will help you to determine your perfect match – with a team of over 30 there is someone at Akari for you!
