Have you ever wondered what happens to the hair we sweep up after your haircut, color boxes, left over color, etc?

At Salon Envy Chicago,
we are a certified GREEN CIRCLE SALON.

What does that mean?
This means 95% of our waste at the salon is repurposed or recycled. We are on a journey to #zerowaste.

 
Hair- Hair is cleaned and stuffed into nylon tubes – “hair brooms” that are used to mop up oil spills in the ocean.

Equiptment- Broken equipment is broken down into parts, or repaired and sent to partner salons in development countries.

Hair color- Water is extracted from left over haircolor and the remaining material is used to make plastic.

We also recycle all paper and paper products, plastics, and glass.


 

How to ELIMINATE FRIZZ- Keratin Brazilian Treatment Chicago

How to ELIMINATE (mostly) FRIZZ-
Keratin Brazilian Treatment 

Salon Envy Offering La Brasiliana Domani Keratin Treatments

Anti Frizz treaments are not just for the ladies. No gender partiality here :)
Here is a photo done on Zackery, who has an extremely coarse tight curl pattern. The treatment left him with hair that was effortless to blowdry straight, or air-dryed
with a pretty frizz-free wave.

La Brasiliana Keratin Treatment is made with collagen, it transforms hair to its healthy, shiny state. La Brasiliana Keratin protein replenishes the condition of the hair, without damanage, and can be used on all hair types.


 


Eliminate frizz for 4-6 months with a Keratin Treatment.
 

How long does it take? It takes 2-4 hours to complete.

How smooth will my hair be? It will eliminate 80%-90% of frizz, about 50%-60% of curl.

How much does this cost? At Salon Envy, keratin treatments start at 0 + up.

Can I get one with color-treated hair? Yes, but clients should have a consultation if their hair is over treated with bleach or excessive color.


Blowouts will be a BREEZE.
Blow dry time is cut in half with a keratin treatment.
Your hair cuticle will be smoother & silkier. 
Keratin treatments allow you to keep 50-60% of your curl, but get rid of most of the frizz.

The anti-frizz treatment gradually fades out, so you won't have to deal with the frizz/curly root new growth that a permanent perm or relaxer causes.

Best Balayage Chicago

Posted:
Balayage is currently the most desired look and our talented stylists have the skills and experience you're looking for!

What is balayage?
(ba-lay-age)
Balayage is a great alternative to highlights. With this technique, you're able to have natural looking hair with low maintainence up-keep. Instead of placing foils used in traditional highlights throughout the hair, balayage is the technique of freehand painting the dye on the hair in such a way that creates a gradual, natural looking effect.

Voted Best Brazilian Wax in Chicago: Salon Envy Waxing

Voted Best Brazilian Wax in Chicago:
Salon Envy Waxing

All about waxing your SWEET spot.

Brazillian Wax (most popular):
A Brazillian Wax removes ALL of the hair down there. We are talking every single bit. Bare. Fresh and so smooth. A Brazilian Wax appointment usually is done with your panties off, so the aesthetcian can remove all hair front to back. This is is our most popular BODY WAX we offer at Salon Envy Chicago because our two aestheticians are known for doing them FAST & EFFICIENT. A full Brazilian Wax is booked as a 30 minute appointment, but we would say majority of the time these appointments finish alot quicker.


French Bikini Wax:
A French Bikini Wax is similar to a Brazilian Wax, but the is usually left around your bum area. A French Bikini Wax also usually has a "landing strip" left. This landing strip can be as thin as you would like, but typically is about 3 fingers width.

A Basic Bikini Wax:

A Basic Bikini Wax is where the hair that you would see if you had underwear on is removed. So, bascially if you were to wear a bathing suit there would be no visible hair around the inner thigh region. You can keep your panties on for this appoitment and it is super fast. The appointment time is 15 minutes or less.
