Salon DJ: Chicago’s Hottest Conceptual Salon
Salon DJ: Hairtography
Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood is home to some of the trendiest spots in the city, and Salon DJ is one of them. This salon is unlike any other in Chicago. At Salon DJ, you can get your hair, makeup and headshot done all under one roof.
The owner, Daniel Janicek, came up with the concept after speaking with fashion models and working professionals who complained about the inefficiencies of getting quality headshots. By the time they met up with a photographer, their hair and makeup no longer looked as good as it did at the salon. Daniel created Hairtography to solve that problem.
Check out this video I created to hear how Daniel explains Hairtography:
Headshots in Three Steps:
I captured the simple three-step process (hair, makeup, and photography) of Hairtography at Salon DJ in this quick video. Thalita Paiva is the artist behind the makeup. She came to Salon DJ after serving as NBC Chicago‘s makeup artist. How gorgeous did these headshots turn out?
Daniel has two decades of experience and has worked with celebrities, like Katie Couric. Daniel previously worked as the Regional Cutting Director at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon where he met Amy Geister who is now the Color Director and Salon Manager at Salon DJ.
I met Amy several years ago through a friend. She is super sweet and talented! Her work has been seen in Modern Luxury Magazine, New York Fashion Week, and even one of The Arctic Monkey’s music videos! When I heard she was helping to open this new salon, I was stoked to check it out and help share Salon DJ’s story.
In this short clip, Amy shares what she loves most about her job:
