6 Chicago Salons For Ultimate Summer Highlights

by Jenny Berg

Our new weekly series Get Right for Summer has one aim: to make sure you're completely beautified before the thermostat hits 90.


The second installment of our Get Right for Summer series is all about highlights. Here's where to score everything from sun-kissed streaks (no sun necessary) to a Jared-Leto-inspired look that a local stylist has dubbed "Manbré."

Highly respected in the land of cuts and color, Maxine Salon [712 North Rush Street] educates its stylists on all the trending color techniques, including balayage and ombré. Maxine Colorists even does what they calls "Manbré," a look inspired by Jared Leto's locks. The salon uses products from L’Oréal Professionnel hair color and Kérastase professional hair care. A fun perk: after a treatment, clients can style their own hair at a D.I.Y. blow-dry bar stocked with brushes, dryers, and products.
