There’s a new kid on the block in West Town, and it’s coloring and cutting its way on to the style-forward radar.
Sine Qua Non Salon, a contemporary salon known for its cutting edge cuts and color, has just opened its fourth location, and this time, its in a brand new spot tucked away on bustling Chicago Avenue.
With additional locations in Lakeview, Lincoln Park and Andersonville, the fourth location feels comfortable, warm and inviting. In fact, you would hardly know you were sitting right off Chicago Avenue when you’re inside this rustic-looking brownstone.
Take a seat inside the loft-like space and let expert stylists get to work, whipping you up a new do in no time. While you wait, glance around at the worn-out graffiti covered walls with subdued hues and an unexpected element in the center of the room -- an oversized “fun-gun” (a large recreation of a toy gun) created by local Chicago artist Rick Gleeson, that hangs from the center wall.
Large glass chandeliers are suspended from the tin ceiling and a windowed walkway looking out across a Mexican-inspired pebbled Zen garden take you from the main room to the shampoo stations, making you feel like you are anywhere but in the middle of a city.
The salon’s open rooftop green space promotes the salon’s sustainable and serene atmosphere, while a range of price points, (cuts and colors that will start at $38 and $71) mean more accessibility for you -- and your wallet.
With a need for a fourth location, looks like they must be doing something right.
