I have been with The Salon, Ltd for the last 25 years, when it started as Anne Charlotte Salon in Lake Bluff.  I don't know where the time has gone! I have see The Salon evolve from just Anne, the sole owner at the time, spending countless hours waiting for people to call or come by for appointments.  She alone was the receptionist, shampoo assistant and hairdresser! To me, to go from that quiet beginningto the wonderful. caring, customer service driven Salon that it is today, is amazing!  It is a business I am so proud to be a part of!  Anne now has her daughter, Sonja, as a partner and hairdresser. We have two other terrific hairdressers, and two unbelievable shampoo assistants. As the Salon coordinator, I cannot say how proud I am to be a part of this wonderful small business.  We are all like a family here, and treat each other as such, including our very special clientele whom we appreciate so very much! I love our Salon, and what it has become! I believe all of us here compliment each other in how we work, and what we bring to the table. I know we are all looking ahead to many more happy years together. We would not be here today, doing so well, if not for all of the special people that put their trust in us!  




After graduating cosmetology school in 1998 I began work at The Salon, Ltd immediately. 17 years later my clients as well as my co workers have become my extended family. I love all aspects of my career, from cutting and coloring, to men's barbering. Lake Forest has truly become a home away from home. I strive to give every client my best! 


Ana has worked for The Salon for nine years.  Her beaming smile and incredible shampoos will put you at ease! She loves working with our amazing clients, and is truly a member of our family!








I have been with The Salon since 2009. I am creative, talented and through. I have enjoyed styling hair my entire life, how lucky to be able to do it as a career! I love to do color and highlighting techniques as well as cutting design. My favorite speciality is styling hair for special events. I am truly committed to making our clients happy!
