About Us

We Believe in Self-Love

Here’s the deal, we love what we do. We believe style and pampering boosts individual confidence and enhances lives. Why? Because we have seen it happen every day since we opened Avalon in 2001. 

Because we are passionate about our work, we are continually learning and pushing boundaries. We have grown from one location to two and have a robust staff ready to help you feel confident and follow your dreams. 

Your Happiness is Our Happiness

Our carefully chosen and highly-skilled professionals can achieve the style you want, whether you are seeking a bold, brave move or a timeless look. 

Having won numerous awards, our Lake Zurich location has been named a Salon Today 200 salon for 17 years in a row. And in the fall of 2019, we added another location in Crystal Lake. We strive to exceed your expectations at both locations.

Nature Knows Best

Both Avalon locations are proud to align with Aveda’s mission of environmental responsibility, sustainable business practices, and cutting-edge style. 

Always aware of the world we live in and the mark we leave, we solely use botanically-based beauty products. This means you are getting the best that nature has to offer, every time you visit. Plus, at Avalon we are committed to giving back to our community. We know that in order to make this world a better place, we all need to work together.

Our Team is Your Team

Look, we get it, daily stress is exhausting. Our staff is here to make life easier for you. When you walk through our doors, our whole team is on your side. 

Because you are our first priority, our entire team is available to you. If you have a favorite salon professional, that works for us. If you want to switch providers and try others on our team, we’re on board for that too. After all, many fashion-forward individuals rely on a team of professionals to keep their look on point. We are here to do the same for you.

Customized Looks, New Trends, and Continual Learning

We provide our team with what they need to be the best they can be. This means we are regularly participating in advanced training and continuing education opportunities. Our team is aware of upcoming trends and knows how to modify them to meet your desires. We enhance what you love about your hair while giving you a style that fits in your day-to-day life. 

Style takes originality. Originality takes vision. And our vision is to boost your self-love.
