FEMINISM IS A HUMANISM
By admin - February 28 - Comments (0)

The goal of this black/white photoshoot was to reveal the diverse look, experiences, and positions of feminists; to break down the often one-dimensional stigma of the word. It is a re-imagining of the current status quo. It is a positive projection toward a future that values individuals for their humanity and their unique difference in this world. We, at RED 7 SALON, believe these ideals matter and that the salon industry can have a major impact in the encouragement of them. As we all know…it’s more than just hair.

What does it mean (even for Men) to be a feminist?
* Unapologetic refusal to be subdued.
* Knowing fear doesn’t determine boundaries.
* Acknowledging the experiences of all people.
* Knowing what you deserve and fighting for it.
* Finding value in things that I hate(d) about myself.
* Finding the place that exists beyond reach of social conditioning.
* Not being diminished by a handful of labels, whatever they may be.
* Wherever someone is on the gender spectrum, it’s A-OK to express that.
* Knowing that it means men will be fuller, more expressive human beings too.
* Knowing that advancement & inclusion of all is the only way to make change with real value.

A special thanks to our amazing hair team (Natalie, Tiffany, Sarah, & Alex) for their incredible ideas, hard work, & contributions, as well as to our wonderful photographer, Karmen Elaine! Also, a big thank you to Margarita Saez on her mad make-up skills. Cheers!

CHICAGO SAYS NO MORE!
By admin - February 19 - Comments (0)

Join RED 7 SALON in taking the pledge to join an amazing movement by Chicago Says No More to bring domestic violence/sexual abuse into the LIGHT! It’s important work that we are so proud to be a part of…having impactful discussions, with clients, surrounding these issues and how to get this junk out of their lives. What’s the pledge?

I pledge to educate myself and others about domestic violence and sexual assault. I now am part of a movement to change the culture and the conversation surrounding these issues, to recognize their indicators and their impact. I believe no one should feel at risk of physical and sexual abuse, and no one should feel the right to abusive behavior. Survivors should be liberated from shame, and abusers should be called out and held accountable. An unwillingness to speak up allows violation of another person to continue, so I join other Chicagoans in raising my voice. I will NOT be part of the silence!
Sign the pledge and join the movement NOW!

RAVE CLIENT REVIEW!!!
By admin - February 01 - Comments (0)

R7S client, Dallas W., just posted this fabulous review on YELP…

“OH MY GOSH. OK FIRST OF ALL BOOK SARAH FOR CUT & SLOANE FOR COLOR (SHE IS A BALAYAGE PRO). So both of these girls are hands down the best stylists I’ve been to not only in Chicago, but in every other city I’ve lived in. I’ve never been more happy with my outcome every time.

Sarah for Cut: Sarah knows what is up. She knows exactly how to listen to what you want and executes it perfectly. And even if you have trouble articulating what you want, she just KNOWS. Sarah is the goddess of The Perfect Cut. Sarah is queen of hair.

Sloane for Color: Sloane is a balayage pro. I haven’t gone to her for any other coloring techniques but when it comes to balayage, she is the master. I’ve had my hair balayaged before by other stylists but no one has executed the way she has. Sloane is a hair artíst.

As far as RED 7 SALON as a whole, such an incredible experience from start to finish. You are taken care of every second you walk in the door. I’ve never been to a more friendly or accommodating hair salon… like ever.”

Thanks, Dallas, for sharing your feedback:) We LUV our clients!
