It’s official! DAVID (R7S Master Stylist/Co-Owner) and JASON (Managing Director/Co-Owner) have moved to Savannah, GA!

Both David & Jason will be regularly returning to R7S Chicago for scheduled hair appointments 3 days/month (generally last week in each month) and business meetings. They will be starting a 1 chair salon for David in the “Hostess City” of the south and Jason will be attending Graduate school @ Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), as well as working for the salon remotely! They will also be marketing the R7S brand to the plethora of wedding parties in Savannah (big destination spot) and offering our team in Chicago the work opportunity to visit (if they so choose). Exciting times, right?!

So, you may be asking…why Savannah? Well, they needed a change, a down-sizing of life, and Savannah has always charmed them “beyond”. Plus, they have an amazingly talented & supportive team here in Chicago. So, the timing was just right! #red7changemakers

Here’s a taste of David’s upcoming availability…

  • T, W – 11/21 & 11/22
  • W, R, F – 12/20, 12/21, & 12/22
  • W, R, F – 1/24, 1/25, & 1/26

  • W, R, F – 3/28, 3/29, & 3/30

Ever wonder who makes the Further Lotion (used for all our complimentary hand massages) and Further Hand Soap (used in our restrooms)? Well, here is Megan & Marshall (in L.A.) hard at work making it all happen…! We LOVE small business and have carried their products and supported their wonderful brand for 5 years now:)

What’s makes Further different? All products are derived from locally sourced depleted vegetable oil, refined into biofuel and then artfully converted into exceptional glycerin soap, glycerin lotion, and soy candles. Their biofuel distillation process drives their cars, and the pure glycerin byproduct drives Further. Fragrant oils of bergamot, olive and bergamot are combined to create products that are at once fresh, sustainable, and pleasingly aromatic. Groovy, right?

We were so excited to find out from Salon Today Magazine that we were honored in 2017’s S.T.A.M.P.’s Marketing Awards again! This time in 2 different categories – “Television Program” AND “Mission Statement”.

Our specialized video , highlighting David Kafer’s (R7S Master Stylist) 25th year anniversary in the salon industry, was featured on a local Chicago TV (WBEZ) special featuring successful business owners and their stories. Our mission statement, which we’ve had for the last 15 years, was highlighted in a different way…as a graphic on our station mirrors…making sure that clients continue to know what we’ve always stood for.

A big KUDOS to Jason Hall (R7S’s Managing Director) for always pushing different ideas on how the R7S brand can be one step further and developing these, and many other, projects. Congrats!
