Bliss Salon of Winnetka's stylists and designers, each graded according to experience and skill, redesign hair and nails to suit the style goals laid out by clients in personal consultations. Hair takes on a fresh appearance after incorporating waves, straightening, and split-level birdhouse construction, each rated based on whether the service is conducted by a master designer, director, or master director. Colorists and master colorists add new hues to flowing locks, and therapists assuage beleaguered hands and feet using gel nail and paraffin treatments. The warm, studio-lit interior shows off modern décor and framed paintings.
The success of The Daymaker Salon relies on two distinct principles: design savvy and a commitment to personal attention. The first component walks into the salon every day inside the head of stylist Edmond Selfollari, who spent years training under industry heavyweights Elizabeth Arden and Mario Tricoci. His stylists bolster his keen aesthetic eye with their own, which they continuously hone with ongoing training and education, a dedication to perfection that earned them the honor of acting as stylists for makeover features on The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Jenny Jones Show. In service of the second component—commitment to personal attention—every haircare service begins with a complimentary consultation. Stylists chat with clients and listen to their fashion goals and wishes. By the time the scissors come out, stylists know what their clients want and how to use their vast cosmetic knowledge in service of those expectations. The stylists can help their clients to change up their hairstyle or find solutions to color problems such as natural hair tones that wash out the complexion or match a rival debate team's jersey colors.
With its red half-moon sofas and retro-industrial decor, a.Go.Go the Salon's interior stands as a hip counterpart to the modern styles that emerge from its salon chairs.

The stylists' steadfast hands can weave sugar-free banana curls or employ professional products from the likes of Color Proof and Keratin Complex to leave locks silky smooth. Staff members also boast expertise in aesthetics, including waxing, nailcare, and makeup application.
