Susan opened Salon Envy in 2006.  She wanted to create a place where guests feel comfortable, receive the service they deserve, and get the style they want.  Hairdressing has been her passion since she was in high school when she gave her best friend a perm in her parents bathroom sink (It looked great!).  She bought her first set of professional shears and headed to the Horst Education Center in Minneapolis to study to become a stylist.  Stints in London (at Aveda) and New York (at Bumble & Bumble and Redken) soon followed.  Susan is color trained with L'Oreal Professionnel, Wella Professional and has received training in Toni & Guy Haircutting Techniques.  She is also certified in Great Lengths hair extensions.  Moving to Chicago, she worked at some of the top salon in Chicago before opening Salon Envy.  Salon Envy's first location opened on Clybourn Ave. in Lincoln Park and later moved to the current space on Halsted St. in 2011.

Styles change quickly, and we all know that it's vitally important to keep up.  You can be confident that all the stylists here receive ongoing training in cutting, coloring, and styling.  We're always up-to-date on the latest trends.  Whether people come to see her or any of the stylists here, Susan wants every guest to walk out the door feeling great.
