Hiro Salon


SALON HIRO
Chicago, Illinois

Just off Michigan Avenue tucked away in a trendy brownstone is Salon Hiro—owned by, you guessed it!—renowned Japanese stylist, Hiro.

We walked up the steps to the top floor, and after a brief knock on the antique door, stepped into a beautiful French countryesque-inspired boutique salon.

Hiro took us on a tour of his very special one-man salon, dedicated to the sate-of-the-art technology for the Yuko Hair Straightening System, along with coloring and scalp massage. The final result? Hair that is straight (not damaged), healthy and shiny.

The Japanese, via Beverly Hills, transplant believes firmly in the lost art of customer satisfaction and showing clients how to recreate that just-walked-out-of-the-salon look at home.

Hiro comes with tremendous salon cred. He studied under the founder of the Yuko Hair Straightening System, Yuko Yamashita, in Japan in 1995. He brought the Yuko system to the US in 1999, teaching on behalf of the company in Beverly Hills and throughout the US, including styling time spent in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.

 

Now in Chicago, Hiro’s one-man boutique salon allows clients to have the most intimate hair care experience, which includes luxurious reclining chairs with cushioned neck pads for massaging and shampooing.

 

 

There are no televisions in this beautiful salon; just lots of magazines, good conversation and a glass of wine if you wish…after all, you are the customer.

Give your mane extra bounce by asking your stylist to snip in a few layers. They may even create a few more styling options!

Giuliana!


When part of your job is to hang out on the red carpet, you have to have a few beauty secrets up your sleeve, right? Sophisticate’s went right up that sleeve and, in an exclusive chat with the E! Fashion Police star, we found out just what makes Giuliana Rancic look so fab next to the stars walking the red carpet.

“I always pick my dress and then decide with my wardrobe stylist and hairstylist what will look the best and complement the dress. Hair is so important. It doesn’t matter how gorgeous the gown is or how perfect the makeup is, if the hair is off, the entire look is off.”

To read more of our beauty interview with the lovely Giuliana, check out our October 2012 issue of Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide, on sale right now! (Pssst! It’s the one with Demi Lovato on the cover!)

Make that short snip look ultra sleek by applying a bit of shine serum to damp tresses before blow-drying with a round brush.

True Carrie


True Blood fan? The Good Wife fan? Or maybe you’re just a Carrie fan! In any case, you must pick up a copy of our October 2012 issue of Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide, where we feature the fabulous Carrie Preston in an exclusive interview!

“Hair is almost always the first thing people use to describe people in the entertainment industry. You know, ‘She’s a blonde; she’s a redhead; she’s a brunette.’ I think it’s important to have an identifiable look, but, at the same time, I’m a character actor and chameleon so I change up my hair a lot!”
