When you find a place that makes you feel fabulous, you never let it go. EVER. Two weeks ago I had the upmost stellar experience at the new Chicago Hair Salon, Spoke & Weal. Specializing in all things hair, this is my new go to spot.
It all started with a consultation from The Master Colorist & Educator, Demi Passaris. (Well, it started with a kind soul hanging up my coat for me & greeting me with an unreal neck massage! Some things you never forget.) Demi, a beautiful friend of mine & even more beautiful artist, knew exactly what to do with my long locks without any hesitation. She painted my hair like a canvas while we chatted about life, goals, & why she loves doing this. “I wanted to get into beauty because I love manipulating a fabric that is so personal to someone.” (Okay, I love that she calls hair “fabric”…she is cool & is so damn right.) “They invite me into an intimate part of their life. My name sits on their calendar & they know they’re going to feel amazing after. I am so lucky I get to do that everyday.” Could you ask for a more passionate & driven stylist? HELL NO.
How gorg is she? Oh, & while I waited for her to wash my hair, I also received a stellar hand massage. (I can’t get enough.) Spoke & Weal uses the best of the best Aveda products that smell & feel absolutely amazing.
After my hair was washed, they applied a three square soil primer & I was ready to go, the sweet & excited Samuel Venchus was ready to snip away at my locks! Before we take a look at my outcome, I ran into an old friend who is so fabulous, Sara Rose. While catching up, I had the privilege to watch Sam give her hair some umph & turn her into a blonde bombshell!
Um, are you serious?! She is a force to be reckoned with. You can follow her & check out her gorgeous clothing store, Sara Rose on Oak, HERE!
& there you have it. Of course, we finished the day off with a photoshoot (duh), & I thanked them as much as I could for making me a….BRONDE. Again, Sam knew exactly what I wanted. Anyone that knows me can tell you that I am a FREAK about getting my hair cut. He knew I wanted to keep some length, & that he did. He is kind, patient, & a true talent. Thank you, Sam.
I am so obsessed with this new look because it’s beautiful but also because of the experience I had. Spoke & Weal believes in being the ultimate & strongest TEAM. Everyone their brings something to the salon that is needed & have their individual talents. Anything you need can happen at Spoke & Weal because of their carefully picked team & their drive to “make you happy” kind of attitude. As I said my goodbyes, I am marking my calendar for my touch up.
Here is where y’all come in….YOU can now get a complimentary cut OR color for first time visits! Well, you’d just be crazy not to take advantage of this. Although I am loyal to these two incredible stylists, I am confident in the WHOLE team. Want to check them out? Head HERE! Call, make your appointment, & thank me later.
