Stylist Spotlight – Sine’s Training Program

SQN’s Training program creates true hair artists.  Are you ready to become a hair super star?
When a hair stylist finishes their training at beauty school, they are left with two options – to take a chair in a salon or to expand their knowledge. The Training Program at Sine Qua Non Salons gives aspiring hair artists the chance to explore their journey, to fine tune their craft and expand their skill set on hair models. The perk? A chair at one of our three locations in Chicago.

Yes, we’ve been voted Best Hair Salon in Chicago over the years. Yes, we’ve been in business for nearly 25 years. But, we wouldn’t be where we are today without our hairdressers-in-training turned hair experts. Our hairstylists are a cut above the rest in this business and we love to see them grow.

Educator and Senior Stylist, Carrie, says, “The Sine Qua Non training program is designed to provide a solid foundation of technical skills to our stylists. We believe that you cannot effectively break the rules without knowing what they are. I am happy that the training process guarantees that the guests of Sine Qua Non Salons receive a quality service from each and every stylist.”

Houston, Texas

San Jacinto Community College

What Jacob is currently studying…
Currently learning blow drying and styling

One thing he loves about the program…
I love the ability to go at the program at your own time and not have everybody learning the same thing at once. I think it really keeps you focused on -your- projects and eliminates the possibility of peer intimidation.

Jacob’s favorite hairstyle he loves to do…
Well I don’t do them for the salon yet but I absolutely LOVE bleach and tones. I’m sort of a blonde-a-holic myself and that’s probably where that comes from.

When not in training, you can find Jacob…
Just got married a year ago so at the moment just relishing the newlywed life and being a pretty boring crazy cat parent.

septumName: Mac
Oswego, IL

Long Layers and Single Process Colors

Mac’s favorite hairstyle/cut/color she likes to do…
Texture, longer cuts, and styles with lots of volume because I just love the looks you get from those elements. I think they give the eye a lot to look at. And I always feel empowered when I have tons of texture and volume.

I work as a server at a bar in Lincoln Park, Kincade’s, and I just started riding motorcycles.
