I have been in the salon industry since 1991 and have a deepﾠpassion for meeting the individual needs of all of my guests. Iﾠspecialize in the art of threading and hair removal. My expertise inﾠmanicure and pedicure services has led me to exclusively use SpaRitual'sﾠvegan product line. My professionalism allows me to offer the bestﾠexperience and provide guests with superior service in our peacefulﾠenvironment.
I started pursuingﾠﾠthe dream of being a hair stylist in 2002, and since thenﾠhave had all my continuing education through the Aveda Institute.ﾠAlthough I love all aspects of hair styling, I thrive on doing color, fromﾠnatural highlights to a complete color makeover. I travel all over the world,ﾠbut Chicago will always be home to me.
I studied at the National Laser Institute in 2011, the nation’s leadingﾠlaser training facility and am a Certified Clinical Laser Technician. Whileﾠlaser technology encompasses a large scope of services, I specializeﾠin laser hair reduction. I consult and treat guests in a professionalﾠand comforting manner, which has led to much praise from male andﾠfemale guests. I will keep you informed of your individual needs andﾠany concerns, as to provide you with a simple experience.
I have over 20 years of nail industry experience, and with a health-centeredﾠapproach, and love for fine details, I am still delighted in making every client lookﾠand feel their best.ﾠMy goals and passions are to learn something newﾠeveryday, to share my knowledge, and to encourage a balanced andﾠenriched life starting by taking care of the often forgotten and overworkedﾠfingers and toes.
David has more than 20 years experience in the salon industry. He has worked at Aveda concept salons in Chicago, where he originated. He is a certified colorist, hair-cutter and stylist with numerous educational experiences. He has traveled from New York to Los Angeles and Europe to expand on his haircare knowledge and skills. David believes that a successful colorist/stylist is one that maintains a good relationship and remains consistent with positive energy within a creative environment.
I have been active in the cosmetology industry since 1985. Iﾠgraduated from an esteemed school owned by platform artists David andﾠAndrea Whitman, where I learned British and French cutting methodsﾠas well as American. Having worked and lived in various locations, Iﾠfind myself most at home in Chicago. A former AVEDA instituteﾠeducator, I have mentored students as well as apprentices, receivingﾠmany accolades. Providing hair services, I specialize in both curlyﾠand fine hair, creating organic "user friendly" styles. I regularly attendﾠcontinuing education to keep me inspired, also finding inspirationﾠeverywhere from the urban landscape to the natural world.
My passion to be a stylist is inspired by beauty and creativity. The constant changes in these push me to further my education, which started in Madison, Wisconsin five years ago. I continue to take color, cutting, and styling classes with Aveda so I can continue to listen to my clients' needs—from a trim to a makeover. I love what I do, but my favorite aspect of my work is helping clients look good and, just as importantly, feel good when they leave the salon.
