After gaining success at international salons, fashion shows, and photo shoots, stylists Laurence Hegarty, David Raccuglia, Beth Lloyd, and Sally Raccuglia joined forces to establish the first Art + Science Salon in 1989. Now, more than two decades later, the quartet of hairstylists has cemented their position in the beauty world by opening three locations across Chicago and creating a philosophy to which each salon holds true: provide world-class, yet wearable, haircuts.
To meet this goal, each salon is staffed with expert stylists and colorists who must complete the salon's rigorous apprenticeship program, which is based on the European system of blending art with science to create modern, wearable styles. The specialists transform hair with help from products from Mensdept., Bumble and Bumble, American Crew, and Shu Uemera. They also make sure clients go home knowing how to maintain and recreate their dos. To welcome more gentlemen into the salon, Art + Science has unveiled The Barbershop at Art + Science, which offers hot towels, straight-razor shaves, and stylish cuts.
