SINE QUA NON: AN INDISPENSABLE OR ESSENTIAL INGREDIENT – “That which you cant live without”

Sine Qua Non Salons, began in 1993.  Native Chicagoan Laura Boton created the go-to hair destination for Chicago’s creative community. Celebrating 28 years in business,  Sine’s award-winning salons in Chicago deliver excellent artistic hair services in a friendly and restorative environment.  Considering Laura’s background as a musician and vocal major at De Paul, it’s not surprising that SQN quickly rose to fame on the local arts scene, attracting Chicago’s musicians and artists to call Sine their favorite hair salon. Our team of inventive hair stylists create flattering, on trend, easy to wear looks that fit each individual perfectly.

Consistently awarded Best Hair Salon in Chicago – our three locations are the place to experience superb, on-trend service.  We are the Sine Qua Non of hair salons in Chicago.

“Of all the beauty salons in Chicago, Sine Qua Non tops the list”. -Time Out Chicago

At Sine, our stylists do both cut and color to create the “Total Look” for our guests. No jumping from one stylist to another, one visionary stylist creates the perfect cut and color for each guest, delivering the very best in one-on-one service.

All stylists are trained to be the very best at their craft and are committed to being in touch with every new trend and technique, keeping us fresh and inspired.
