The minute you meet Eileen, you will have no doubt about her passion and love for everything hair. It simply oozes out of everything she does. We know this has something to do with the fact that Eileen has known she wanted to be a hairstylist since she was 7 years old! She wasn’t exactly 7 when she started her career, but she did seek out the best salon in her area before she even graduated high school. It was at this salon in the suburbs, the award-winning Zazu Salon and Day Spa, that Eileen perfected her craft during her 1 ½ year internship and then stayed on as a stylist for another 5 ½ years before coming to Chicago. Eileen enjoys all aspects of our industry and has worked outside the salon to style for fashion shows Another Level, Akira, Havilan Boutique and has competed in the annual touring event Hair Wars. She has continued to hone her skills with advanced training with Goldwell, Redken and high dimension Kia Color. Eileen craves the creativity of both cut and color and truly loves the quality time and interaction she gets with each client.
On her own time Eileen loves everything ‘sport’, from playing in her volleyball league to Fantasy Football. She’s also a nutrition junkie and is known to make a killer smoothie! We are sure this helps her on the runway! Oh- did we mention Eileen is also a model?? You may be just as likely to catch her in print or on the runway working with Elite Modeling Agency here in Chicago as you are in the salon. Although Eileen grew up and started her career in the suburbs, now that she has been in the city for a while she has no intentions of ever leaving! That works just great for us, because we have a feeling that Eileen will be a part of our family for many years to come.
Eileen’s men’s haircuts are $50 and women’s are $70, colors start at $76 and highlights from $115.
