our specialists

I have been in the salon industry since 1991 and have a deep passion for meeting the individual needs of all of my guests. I specialize in the art of threading and hair removal. My expertise in manicure and pedicure services has led me to exclusively use SpaRitual's vegan product line. My professionalism allows me to offer the best experience and provide guests with superior service in our peaceful environment.







I started pursuing  the dream of being a hair stylist in 2002, and since then have had all my continuing education through the Aveda Institute. Although I love all aspects of hair styling, I thrive on doing color, from natural highlights to a complete color makeover. I travel all over the world, but Chicago will always be home to me.

I studied at the National Laser Institute in 2011, the nation’s leading laser training facility and am a Certified Clinical Laser Technician. While laser technology encompasses a large scope of services, I specialize in laser hair reduction. I consult and treat guests in a professional and comforting manner, which has led to much praise from male and female guests. I will keep you informed of your individual needs and any concerns, as to provide you with a simple experience.

I have over 20 years of nail industry experience, and with a health-centered approach, and love for fine details, I am still delighted in making every client look and feel their best. My goals and passions are to learn something new everyday, to share my knowledge, and to encourage a balanced and enriched life starting by taking care of the often forgotten and overworked fingers 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. I graduated from an esteemed school owned by platform artists David and Andrea Whitman, where I learned British and French cutting methods as well as American. Having worked and lived in various locations, I find myself most at home in Chicago. A former AVEDA institute educator, I have mentored students as well as apprentices, receiving many accolades. Providing hair services, I specialize in both curly and fine hair, creating organic "user friendly" styles. I regularly attend continuing education to keep me inspired, also finding inspiration everywhere 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.
