What People Are Saying…

I love SINE QUA NON Salons! The reception was so nice and welcoming. My stylist, Joe, was amazing!! My hair looks so beautiful!! I was nervous with coloring because I have curly hair, but Joe walked me through the process and eased my worries, making sure I was comfortable every step of the way. I would go here again and again! Glad I found my new salon!!

I just got my hair cut by Owen and they did an AMAZING job as always!! They know how to give an awesome haircut for queer people. I've been going to them exclusively for years because they always do such a great job. If you're in the mood for chatting they're also super fun to talk to.

Suzanna did an amazing job repairing my dry, damaged hair. She gave me a blowout after a very relaxing shampoo and condition. She thoroughly explained all of the products to me, and did an amazing job making my hair feel smooth, shiny, and alive again!

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.
