Lap of Luxury
“Feel the beauty you deserve.”
This is the friendly greeting and reminder to clients instantly visible when visiting the Zazú Salons website. Its Instagram page features an array of buttery blondes, shiny chestnut curls, and razor-sharp nails in golden amber and festive hues. The Zazú feed is also interspersed with cute graphics such as “May your day be as amazing as your hair,” as well as more serious entreaties, like promoting paraben-free products and encouraging followers to say no to animal testing.
Nestled in historic downtown Hinsdale, Zazú Salon’s flagship location has become the gold standard for luxury salons. Zazú Salon has been bringing the very best of hair and beauty to the greater Chicago area for over 40 years. The original salon’s doors first opened in Hinsdale in 1979, and today, Zazú has six chic salon locations in Hinsdale, Naperville, Wheaton, the Chicago Gold Coast, and its newest branch in Elmhurst—which opened in November.
A family-owned business, Zazú’s commitment to making each client feel a part of the Zazú family as well is part of what makes this salon so unique.
“We want you to feel welcomed and at home … our entire team believes that the foundation of your unique experience begins with the art of listening to your needs,” says the Zazú Team. The staff at Zazú Salon is also committed to making each client’s luxury experience specially tailored to them, with personalized recommendations for seasonal services and other offers.
The Zazú Salons group prides itself on a fleet of highly trained stylists and technicians, whose skill and dedication make no request or service impossible. From the latest and most cutting-edge techniques in the world of hair, beauty, and self care, to replicating the perfect Instagram ombre or nail design, Zazú Salon will make sure you leave feeling satisfied and your absolute best.
Even in light of a global pandemic, Zazú Salons and their team’s commitment to personalization and client care has only improved. In addition to installing FreshAire UV filters to sterilize all air circulation in Zazú Salons, there is a new contactless check-in, check-out, and booking features to maintain as much sanitation and social-distancing as possible.
“We worked very hard to find the balance between being as safe as possible for all of our guests and staff, while still not losing that personal touch that we’re so proud of … we purposely have tried to keep each service as familiar and relaxing as possible,” says the Zazú team.
In the world of fashion, 2020 brought cozy loungewear to the forefront and saw the popularity of the “Nap Dress” reach an alltime high. Looking ahead to the new year ahead, Zazú Salons is predicting that extensions will be every salon’s must-have style.
The beauty of hair extensions is they can add fullness, length, and even color to brighten up and enhance your natural cut. Extensions are also a great option for anyone who has cut their hair short, that way they’re not limited to one style until their locks grow back out. Another new year’s trend already on the rise at Zazú Salons—a continued demand for facials featuring their newest upgrade add-on to address “maskne.”
Thanks to Zazú’s attentive guest service and care, customers have stayed loyal, still eager to return to the salons for a chance to relax and escape from the noise and stress of everyday.
The Zazú family is so thankful and appreciative of all their clients’ past and continued support. They are thrilled that they can continue to pamper guests and look forward to many more years of being Hinsdale’s preferred salon.
