Huetiful Salon, a beauty hotspot dedicated to healthy hair treatments for women with Natural or processed hair of all textures, opened its newest location last Friday in Chicago’s “Bronzeville” neighborhood. With a location in Atlanta as well, Huetiful Salons specialize in hydrating/conditioning steam treatments for the hair. Using the innovative Professional Huetiful Hair Steamers, clients’ moisture-starved tresses are surrounded with a soft, misty “veil” of gentle steam to help infuse strands with amazing conditioning benefits. Huetiful founder Ken Burkeen was on hand to welcome guests from the community and personally gave everyone a tour of his chic salon. Decorated with exposed brick, painted moldings and comfortable seating, Huetiful Salon is truly a relaxing beauty oasis! Celebrity hairstylist Tasheara Neshell, who calls Huetiful her “salon home” when not travelling with her star clientele (like actress/singer Jennifer Hudson), was also on hand—along with the rest of the highly skilled Huetiful creative team—to celebrate the salon opening. Here, Sophisticate’s Black Hair, brings you these fave snapshots from the event…
