From the moment I walked in to Agnes O, I felt relaxed, at home, and completely taken care of. Agnes O is a one stop shop for all things beauty, spa, makeup, and hair located in the heart of the Gold Coast. The salon/spa is just a quick walk away from the triangle, Michigan Avenue, and all the hot spot hotels, restaurants, and boutiques of the Gold Coast and River North.  Sitting in this hidden gem, I felt completely surrounded by the core of the city, in one of the most upscale, prime locations the town has to offer. 

How many salons do you walk in to where you are personally greeted by the owner herself? Agnes was so welcoming and genuine, and her team reflects her personality directly. The Agnes O team (pictured at the bottom) is a true family, and you experience that from the moment you walk in the door. A hands-on and involved owner is a must have to a successful small business. She is caring, innovative,  and works everyday.  Agnes began training as a stylist at such a young age (14), and is constantly improving, educating, and evolving both herself and her highly trained, specialized staff. She makes sure each client is relaxed, and that all of their specific, individual needs are met. 

Two things that Agnes O offers that you can't find anywhere else in the city (you do not want to miss out on these!)

Airbrush makeup application: The airbrush makeup application has been known to last for up to 36 hours, looking just as fresh as the moment it was applied. The airbrush makeup has become an extremely popular choice for weddings, brides, and special events. The airbrush makeup is silicone based, which is extremely natural looking and will not clog your pores. 

Halo Hair Extensions: These are natural, comfortable, and affordable hair extensions. The halo hair goes all the way around your head, instead of starting and stopping in different places (which is what typically causes the unnatural look of extensions). The halo hair extensions are the perfect way to achieve a long, full, gorgeous body of hair.

Exclusive tips and tricks from owner Agnes and the excellent team: 

1. Always use heat protection before blowdrying or using a flat or curling iron. This will prevent split ends, fly aways, etc. It will keep your hair looking smooth and healthy.
2. A 1 and 1/4" curling iron will typically get you the most natural looking waves.
3. Use dry shampoo 1-2 days after getting your hair done to extend the time of your hair-do.
4. California beach waves, braids, and high buns are three of the biggest hair trends of summer 2014.
5. Look forward to seeing pastels and more warmth mixed into hair colors this fall.
