CHICAGO - 312.644.7337
CHICAGO SAYS NO MORE!
By admin - February 07 - 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!

2017…POPPIN’ WITH PIXIES
By admin - January 05 - Comments (0)

What is the biggest haircutting TREND of 2017? The PIXIE…again.

Pixies are such a wonderful way to express someone’s personality. There’s nowhere to hide! Wherever you are, your confidence is inevitably exuded since your hair isn’t shielding your face. I love the trends of expressing femininity through side fades and heavy texture. Pixies offer a lot more versatility with styling than some longer hair options, because you can wear your hair smooth, textured, forward, backward, upward, etc! I love Bumble and bumble’s SEMISUMO for shine & hold, SUMOTECH for edgier & stronger hold, and SURF SPRAY for a lived-in style!

But it’s all in the details–If you have a funky cowlick in the bang area or crown area, rock those quirks and use them to direct your hair in a new direction. Softer necklines and ear areas can be detailed to be extremely feminine or more edgy depending on the look we are going for. One client even said that her husband loves her short hair because she has the sexiest neck, and now he gets to stare at it all the time. Take the plunge and let’s and start the NEW year rocking!

R7S Clients pictured below…Monica and Caitlin (both cuts by SARAH). To schedule an appointment w/SARAH (Stylist), please call RED 7 SALON @ 312-644-7337.

SAFE IN MY CHAIR
By admin - January 01 - Comments (0)

In 2017, we will be beginning a partnership with an organization called SAFE IN MY CHAIR. It’s a movement started by a transgender hairstylist, Mia, in order to identify hair salons throughout the U.S. that are safe spaces to receive quality hair services…a right that EVERYONE deserves.

The safe list coincides with our company’s mission statement perfectly since our goal and culture is to ACCEPT EVERYONE. R7S may also host a future education event with Safe In My Chair in order to train our staff a bit further on these issues, but also other Chicago salon professionals. We are thrilled that we are able to support a cause like this, creating safe spaces for those who need it most. Cheers!

Wow…DAVID KAFER, Master Hairdresser & R7S’s Co-Owner/Founder, is celebrating 25 Years in the Salon Industry! From his humble beginnings as a Cut Assistant (going thru a 2 year Sassoon program), to working at some of the most exclusive salons in Chicago, to starting his very own brand…RED 7 SALON in May 2002! Quite a career, thus far.
