After launching its first location in Toronto in 1989, the high-end salon Civello celebrates 25 years of success with a US expansion to Chicago. Today Civello opens three salons in the city, former Michael Anthony Salon & Spa locations at 1001 W. North Avenue in Lincoln Park, 1637 W. Belmont Avenue in Lakeview, and 621-623 N. State Street in River North.
The brand prides itself in vision crafting, the art of understanding the personality and style of a client in order to customize a look. Factoring in lifestyle, personality, and physical characteristics, Civello's vision promises to shape a style that's all your own – one that balances and enhances all facets of your life.
With winter around the corner, we took the opportunity to ask Civello stylist Zoe Johnson for her winter hair care tips.
1. "Moisturize! Dry hair and constant indoor heating can take a toll on your hair, making it dry and brittle. A weekly hair masque, packed with protein is the ultimate must have in your winter haircare arsenal. I recommend the Aveda Dry Remedy Masque. Apply directly on ends and let it sit for 15-20 minutes to let your locks soak it all in."
2. "Protect! Every time you wash and style your hair you should be taking proactive steps to protect it. Between the wind and snow, and the blow dryer and curling iron, hair often needs a little extra love in the winter. When choosing a product, look for one that is light enough not to weigh hair down. Something versatile like Aveda's Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair tackles both problems - it's a leave-in conditioner and a heat protector all in one."
3. "Stick it! After all the effort to get your hair looking just right, you want it to stay that way. Choose a light and fresh hair spray like Aveda Air Control to keep your tresses on lockdown all day - and it smells great too!"
