Client Highlights

Shavon is the best kept secret in Chicago! I found her when I asked a woman I saw at a party who did her amazing braids--and now everyone is asking me who does mine. Shavon is an absolute professional and one of the best natural hairstylist I have ever worked with. I told her what I generally wanted, and she came up with a gorgeous style that she braided in record time. And it didn't hurt at all, as she believes in not pulling the scalp too tight. Best of all, the braids lasted and looked beautiful the entire month. Every other time I've gotten braids, they've slipped out after a couple of weeks so keeping my style for so long was a truly pleasant surprise. Shavon Akhan is a GENIUS!!


Amy DuBois Barnett, Editor in Chief of Ebony Magazine

"I had many reservations about finding a stylist in a brand new city when I first came to Chicago. I remember asking for recommendations for a natural hair stylist and getting many ambiguous references. I then asked a woman who answered with complete utter confidence that Shavon Akhan was the stylist I should consult with. Shavon is a woman who takes pride in her business and truly listens to her clients needs. Shavon knows that communication is essential between a client and stylist, yet her extensive knowledge of natural hair techniques will allow you to simply want to sit back and relax. I completely trust my hair with Shavon. Her confidence and professionalism truly keep me at ease…and looking good."

"For almost a year, I’ve had tree braids that Shavon created and maintains. They are fabulous! I now have a true low-maintenance hairstyle that allows for lots of styling creativity. I also enjoy the serenity of her salon overlooking the lake. Shavon’s approach and expertise truly help to bring out our natural, inner beauty."


Amy Hillard - President of Fashion Fair Cosmetics

"I love Shavon! She has been my stylist for several years now. Whether it be interlock (the style featured here), micro braids, or my personal favorite, tree braids, I never stop getting compliments about my hair. Although I have a head full of hair, and the braiding takes between 10-12 hours, Shavon is always calm, cool and collected. The experience is pleasant, peaceful and she's always prompt, working to get you in and out ... one of the reasons I've abandoned some salons in the past. I love the ease and care of the styles and can't give enough praise for her expertise and knowledge of her craft."

Shavon is the best natural hair care stylist in Chicago. I've been going to her over 3 yrs now. I've had some very disturbing experiences with other stylist in the Chicago area; I've had some good ones too, but Shavon takes natural hair care to a new level!I love the fact she offers various styles to her clients. Whether you want locs, twists, extensions, treebraids, touch-ups, etc. Shavon can do it for you at a reasonable price. Also, I appreciate how she works with you in achieving you goals for your hair and its health.She's professional, personable,knowledgeable, and kind. Plus she is very holistic.All in all, if you want an amazing experience(and you love your hair) its worth it to make a consultation with Shavon. You won't be disappointed. Also, her assistant, Indrani is wonderful as well.
