Hair Extensions Salon

We are a boutique hair extension salon specializing in the best hair extension methods, precision haircutscolor correction and Brazilian Blowout, and are located in upscale downtown Elmhurst, just outside of Chicago.  Having come from large, corporate salon atmospheres, our aim was to take things down a notch and create more of a relaxed place for clients to come and be pampered. Our unique, customer-focused salon space is private and feels more like a retreat than a circus.

You’ll always get one-on-one attention from a duo of passionate hair designers with over 30 combined years experience in creating art from behind-the-chair. Our Co-Owners, Caitlin Curiale and Erin Kelly Haines, are eager to use their breadth of knowledge to address your particular needs and help you attain the hair of your dreams. Using the latest innovations in salon hair care we can revitalize your look with a chic, updated style that is tailored to your unique personality and awakens your Alter Ego.
