I’ve been going to Lo for the last year and she is fabulous! I never went for a cut this short before but it’s helped me so free and cute. This salon is so lovely and clean, and I love how they offer you drinks while you wait. Everyone here is so chill and pleasant and the prices are super reasonable considering how good the results are. For the first time I don’t feel punished for having curly hair!

This is the best salon in Andersonville and I’ve been trusting Paige with my cuts and root cover ups for over 5 years, she’s styled me for headshots and my wedding hair. The salon is also a relaxing upbeat fun and welcoming vibe. The R+Co products they use are top notch. Every time I come in the door is a self care moment I look forward to

I’ve been going here for years because I consistently get great haircuts! It’s always exactly what I have in mind and they give great advice too. Lisa, Clare and Owen are the best and the front desk staff is amazing.

Our Reviews


COVID SAFETY is our number one priority.
As the Delta variant becomes the dominant strain in Chicago, we encourage the wearing of masks. However, our current policy is, if you have proof of vaccination you can have a maskless service if you prefer. We will continue to update our policy as things develop.

At Sine Qua Non, we know things happen. In order to ensure that we can accommodate all of our guests needs, we require that you give us at least 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment.

We are unable to hold any appointment without a valid credit card on file. If you cancel without 24 hours notice or no show for your appointment, a charge equal to 50% of your service and will be charged to your card.

Our goal is complete happiness with your fresh cut and color. If you need an adjustment service, they are free within 2 weeks from your original appointment, preferably with your original stylist. If a refund is requested, our policy is: Call and schedule an assessment with management within 2 weeks of your service. You must come into the salon, so we can see the problem in person. If you received an adjustment at a different salon or cannot stop by so we can see your hair, we will not refund your services.

It is important to us that you are totally happy with your purchase. Product returns must happen within 30 days of purchase, be accompanied by a store receipt (and we can view in your client file) and the product must be nearly full. If you paid by credit card, you may receive a credit on your card. We are a completely cashless business.

We are committed to giving you the best one-on-one service available. If you are more than 15 minutes late, and we are unable to give you the attention you deserve, we ask that you reschedule your appointment for another day or with an available stylist.
