Cut & Color
Hair with a view at a new downtown salon
We may have our hair covered by hats for half the year, but we still love killer cuts and color. That’s why we’re so excited about the recent opening of the Anthony Cristiano Salon on the mezzanine level of the Riverwalk retail space at Trump Tower.
This is the first salon for celeb stylist Cristiano, a Chicago native whose clients have included Mariah Carey, Demi Moore, Uma Thurman and Adriana Lima. His super-chic 3,400-square-foot salon has two teams of cutting and coloring specialists (many snared from the city’s best salons), as well as makeup and mani/pedi stations. Other than the cost of a cut from Cristiano himself ($350), prices are typical for downtown: Haircuts start at $85, blowouts are $65 and up, and full highlights are about $165.
Not only does the windowed salon have outstanding views of the river, it’s also the only place in town that carries beauty products from chichi Parisian perfumer Caron (compacts start at $45, body powders at $45 and goose-down powder puffs at $100). The salon’s boutique sells hair accessories (head wraps, pony wraps, barrettes and more) by Hollywood favorite Jennifer Behr.
Hollywood hair comes to Chicago. Now if we only had those endless 75-degree days.
