Thanks for visiting...with the current situation of the pandemic, I would like to make a few things very clear. I will be doing everything I can to make my personal space a safe and healthy space..

  1. We will get through this.
  2. I will be working on one guest at a time.
  3. The appointment times have been extended to give me time to sanitize between each guest. Your appointment will not be as long as stated, you can easily shave a half hour of time off of each appointment. (I just needed to adjust the scheduling to accommodate extra cleaning time.)
  4. If there is anything that I can do to accommodate your needs, please let me know via text.
  5. Stay healthy!
  6. Fully vaccinated.

I have an intimate space that’s easily accessible and private. Feel free to reach out to me anytime


At New Beginnings Hair Loft by Chad H, I am looking forward to exploring what inspires you and what will work best for you.  Located in the heart of downtown Highland Park, and steps away from the Metra Station. There is plenty of parking just outside of Salon Lofts doors.  


New Beginnings Hair Loft by Chad H, will be using Kevin Murphy for color, styling, and home care.  I have chosen to carry Kevin Murphy products because of how I appreciate what the company stands for, and what they are doing for the environment around us. You will find that the color is PPD free, ammonia free. The color does have naturally derived ingredients like Aloe Vera, Honey, Shea Butter, and Pomegranate.


Kevin Murphy has also chosen to make all of their product bottles out of Ocean Plastic Waste. To read more about what this new idea is read on Ocean Plastic Waste. The company is also proudly endorsed by PETA.


"Philanthropy is at the heart of our brand, and we are constantly dedicated to aiding charitable causes that focus on both human and environmental issues. We focus on funding causes and charities that are close to our hearts, wherever and whenever possible, through the support of our distributors and salon network. Many of the charities that we support include The Climate Reality Project, Wings of Karen and Culture is Life." -Kevin Murphy.


I highly recommend guests to come in for a complimentary consultation.  This will give us an opportunity to explore your concerns and hair goals.


The easiest way to contact me would be via text: 847.833.0322.


Thank you and be well.


-Chad H.

I have been looking for a new stylist since I moved to the area and I’m thrilled to have found that person in Chad. I was amazed at the end results of my hair. My color was stunning and I appreciated that he did the balayage as discussed but then said he wanted to add a few foils underneath to make sure the color looked great if I wore my hair up. I had never even thought of that aspect nor had anyone else ever brought it up to me! The color, the cut, the condition of my hair when he was done, the time he took to do a stellar job—I could not have been more impressed with everything. Please do not think twice about booking with Chad—it will be better than what you hoped for.
