The Lather Lounge is a Paul Mitchell–focus salon that creates an atmosphere which allows clients to look and feel their best with a menu of indulgent hair services. Before opening her own salon, Lynn Griglin spent 2.5 years honing mane-management skills at Vidal Sassoon in Chicago, before working as an educator for Paul Mitchell, where she trained fellow stylists in the art of hair chromatics. Her equally dedicated staffers conjure pleasant visits by providing two complimentary services of the client's choice, such as a steam facial or neck massage, with each haircut, waxing, or skin treatment. In addition to snipping signature 'dos and shaping eyebrows into elegant arches or intimidating lightening bolts, The Lather Lounge contributes to several charitable causes, including cancer research and an organization that uses hair clippings to clean up oil spills.
