goodbye and thank you kimberly!

January 2016

Today we say goodbye to our stylist Kimberly as she heads to Asheville, North Carolina for an amazing next chapter of her life.


Fellow stylist Carrie working on her God’s Eye

Kimberly was Sine Qua Non’s first employee and has been with us for 22 years. Over her time at Sine, she has built a loyal and steadfast clientele who will miss her just as much as we will! Kimberly has a keen eye for artistry and a gift for the “rock and roll hair” that is such a part of Sine Qua Non’s vision. A talented hairdresser and a great listener, her absence in the salon will be felt deeply.

Kimberly is a truly creative being and her love of art and music is evident in her work. If you have ever seen Kimberly’s fine art, you know how multifaceted she is. She has displayed her paintings at our Lincoln Park salon and has curated many rotating exhibits. We will never forget how Kimberly taught all of her colleagues how to make God’s Eyes for display in the salon. Some of us began this task wary and unenthused, but by the time we saw how much care Kimberly put into it, we were glad we participated.

Kimberly’s love of her coworkers and friends is something else. She is an incredible team worker and would help sweep and fold towels if necessary, despite being one of our most senior and tenured stylists. She is a generous and thoughtful gift giver– almost all of us have some fabulous item that used to live in Kimberly’s closet. A protective and supportive colleague, Kimberly is quick to welcome new employees, many of whom became fast friends. Her loyalty to her loved ones and to the salon is unsurpassed.

With love and luck, we say “see you soon” to our beautiful, dear friend Kimberly. Thank you for spending so much time with us.

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.
