SQN: Why do you love doing hair and/or what made you want to start doing hair?

Lauren: I love doing hair because it is a chance to be creative and work with people. I am obsessed with fashion and I love the freedom to wear what I want and fill people in on the latest fashion.

SQN: What is your favorite hair trend that your clients have been requesting this season?

Lauren: “Rich girl hair”, more effortless and cleaner-looking than beachy hair.

Lauren: Big Sean and Tyga!

SQN: What was your best/worst/most embarrassing/weirdest hairstyle?

Lauren: When my hair was (not cute) platinum with 2” layers on one side of my head… unintentionally.

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.

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.
