    I would suggest to go for regular .com domain since the business is located in US. It's more professional and not-confusing for your potential customers. You can check the current top 10 sites and see wht kind of extensions they use.

    If I were you, I would go with the .com TLD. The .us ccTLD is fine, although I personally haven't seen any local business sites in my area or sites owned by any of my clients that use .us.

    Besides that, more Internet users are familiar with .com domains.

    Mysalon.com TAKEN
    mysalon.online AVAILABLE
    mysalon.us TAKEN
    mysalon.fashion AVAILABLE

    Why not buy a domain that's the name of the company?

    Just go for .com if its offline business as most of the word of mouth will be for your brand and noone will talk about TLD and by default everyone will consider it .com. If I were you, i would go with .com :)
