Bad Hair Days, Begone!


With April showers come plenty of wet, ruined hairstyles, frizzed-out locks and last-resort ponytails. Thankfully, Chicago’s top salons have you covered with ways to beat springtime downpours and spoil hair with luxurious new treatments while you’re at it!  

1. The team at Maxine Salon has clients covered no matter the weather, but pro stylist specifically offers up some tips for salvaging your style on a rainy day. She recommends products like the new Kerastase Elixir Ultime oils and Shu Uemura satin design, a moisture-rich lotion that restores lackluster hair and provides a soft, weightless conditioning treatment. Plus, she says, always have accessories on-hand like bobby pins for a messy chignon or a silk headband to pull back wispy hairs. And don’t even think about straightening curly hair prior to leaving the house—getting caught in the rain would turn it into a frizzy mess. When all else fails, duck into Maxine’s Gold Coast location and let the pros work their magic. 712 N. Rush St., 312.751.1511,
