Hair coloring has many different applications and variations – There’s the traditional all-over hair coloring to boost your natural color, blend in grey hair, or to change up your look completely. There’s the full head and half head of highlights that give your hair perfectly placed pops of dimension, lightness, brightness or fashion colors such as blue or pink pops of color. There’s root touch ups for the blending or warming of your natural tone. And there’s trends like balayage, hair painting, babylights and ombre. Each of these hair coloring services are available at our three Sine Qua Non locations.

Your hair stylist at Sine Qua Non Salons will work with you to fulfill your hair coloring desires. It’s not always an easy choice to choose which hair coloring service is right for you. Our consultations are free if you want to explore your options with our experts.

There are many different ways to achieve your desired result, and seeing your hairdresser in person can help the stylist know how much time they need to give you what you want, at the price that fits your budget.

Sine Qua Non Salons front desk customer service experts and salon coordinators will help to match you with a hair stylist that fits your personal style as well, so call and have a chat with our great team of customer service specialists. Your desired hair color, existing color, texture, length, current cut and at-home maintenance all factor into what the perfect end result should be, and will help us suggest which hair stylist is right for you.

The Sine Qua Non experience begins right when you step into our salon. Our three Chicago locations each offer complimentary beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) in a warm and inviting environment, located in Lakeview, Andersonville or West Town.

Our hours exceed normal business hours for those Chicagoans who can not leave the office for a hair service.  We are open until 9PM on Wednesday and Thursday at all three locations and 7PM on Friday in West Town and Andersonville to accommodate Chicago’s working professionals.

Come in, Get Comfortable, Get Styled.
