Our Staff

Paul Hyland - Owner, Stylist, Colorist

It is pretty common in the salon industry for owners to step away from their chairs and concentrate on management duties. For me, this would mean giving up what I really like about my profession - the creative challenges of artistic hair design and the personal rewards of every day client interaction. I have always enjoyed the challenge of creating "new looks" and to keep current, I have maintained a personal goal to constantly update, learn, listen, and interact with the other professionals who work for me. Whether I am doing a cut or color, creating a hairstyle involves a careful and thoughtful interpretation of a style that the client has in mind and translating their vision into a finished look. While we carry several color lines in the salon, my go-to favorite is Redken Colour Fusion. As a long-time career professional, I have seen many trends come and go but really enjoy the transformation that occurs with a full head of natural looking color. My other areas of expertise include highlights/lowlights, razor cutting, men's haircut/style, and clipper cutting. 

Now enough about me and more about my staff! I feel that I have assembled the best stylists and technicians in the area. This notion is reinforced by the fact that my salon and spa has been consistently recognized among "the best" in the area by McHenry County residents in the annual, NW Herald-Best of the Fox, Reader's Choice awards. 

If you have additional questions about a stylist or technician, please give us a call!
