Thank You for visiting my page. I have over 20 years of experience cutting hair in the Chicago area. I graduated with honors from the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis and began my career at Art & Science Salon in Evanston. More recently I worked at Beauty and Balance Salon in Kenilworth. I specialize in haircuts for all members of your family. I enjoy doing all hair types and styles from traditional cuts to cutting edge trends. I keep up to date by attending continuing education classes multiple times a year.

For color services, I partner with Barbara Bodily, salonlofts.com/barbra_bodily or Judith Perez, salonlofts.com/judith_perez. You can contact me in order to book appointments back to back. 

I pride myself on providing a clean and comfortable environment for all of my guests. Appointment times have been extended to allow me time to clean and disinfect between each guest. All guests and visitors must wear a mask at all times. All chairs and highly touched surfaces will be disinfected before each of my guests arrives and every guest gets a clean cape. If you are experiencing any signs of illness or are living with anyone who is, you will be asked to reschedule. All cancellation fees are waived during this time and I apologize for the inconvenience. I know we are all anxious to get back to normal so I'm doing my part to keep us all healthy.

When you arrive for your appointment please call or text before entering the building so I can make sure I have the loft ready for you.

I look forward to seeing you. Please reach out if you have any questions.

Rue listened to what I wanted and gave me an excellent haircut! She’s friendly and personable and I was so happy to walk out of the salon with exactly what I wanted. I give her my highest recommendation and will be back for my next cut! -Jill

I highly recommend Rue for Haircuts at Salon Lofts, Highland Park. Oh Momma it's a game changer. I thought I was going into Mariah Carey's shoe closet to get a haircut but I actually felt like a VIP Guest with my own private suite. Rue was so kind and down to earth and did exactly what I asked for her to do It was so nice to treat myself after snipping dead ends for months due to Covid. It was finally time to get real hair and feel like me again! Rue is the best, I can't wait to go back!

Rue has been cutting my hair for over a decade. She is technically brilliant, very strong in the creative department and a truly wonderful person. She is exceptional in her consultations, listening and advising on ways to help you find the ‘perfect’ haircut. You won’t be disappointed!
