Last week, I had the opportunity to meet with the team at George the Salon. Located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, the salon has earned praise from locals and celebrities alike… with features by InStyle, Michigan Avenue, Refinery29, and even being named the best hair cut in Chicago by Allure magazine. Beyond the talent and professionalism, the team is super friendly and fun! I met with colorist Emily, who lightened up my natural strawberry blonde hair with highlights. She also provided a color glaze and Kérastase treatment, which left my hair feeling incredibly soft with just the perfect amount of shine. We chatted about the latest in hair trends (hello, balayage) and tips to help grow hair longer (hint: step away from damaging hot tools and maintain regular maintenance trims). Next, I met with Dae who dried and styled my hair. I love the way he encourages clients to have fun with their hair, to experiment — and not to worry about making it too “perfect.” He styled my hair beautifully with lots of movement, shine and soft waves. If you are in the Chicago area, I do not hesitate to recommend George the Salon. (On a final note, the salon is making an exciting move this fall to the Gold Coast!)
Do you have a favorite go-to salon in your area? I’d love to hear any hair trends or styles you’re loving lately!
