About Us

Navii opened it’s doors in February 2000, in Schererville, Indiana, created to be a special place where smiles are everywhere and touch is welcomed. A place to relax, escape and feel refreshed. A place that makes you feel beautiful inside and out. Navii is a Sanskrit word that means to relax and rejuvenate. Our goal is to blend the nontraditional spa modalities of the eastern world with the traditional world. To give you permission to unwind and rejuvenate yourself and feel renewed.

Navii has received recognition both locally and nationally for its trendy hair designs and photo work. We have also won several awards for our green space efforts and policies. We are currently a member of Chicago Cosmetologists and the prestigious Intercoiffure American Canada. Our salon team offers a full range of services; our hair design team is skilled in all forms of cutting, barbering and signature color techniques. We strive to create an environment that allows individual creativity to thrive.
