music we love<3 pride edition

July 2022

Happy Pride, everyone! We love the month of June, Chicago summers, and of course, Chicago Pride. We’ve done a fair amount of rainbow hair transformations over the years and we hope for plenty more! But today we’re sharing some of our favorite LGBTQ artists who we bump in Sine ALL DAY.

Arlo parks

Openly queer and only 22, Arlo Parks makes soft, groovy, poetic songs.

Our fave by Arlo: cola

blood orange

Called the “most queer-friendly non-queer album of 2013” Blood Orange’s Cupid Deluxe blends a myriad of genres leaving an album that’s both upbeat but simultaneously raw.

With a smooth, dreamy approach to her blend of R&B and sophisticated adult pop, Raveena’s vibe is a Sine STAPLE.

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.
