Channahon Minooka Chamber highlights new hair salon

HUSH Salon on Sage opened earlier this year

The Channahon Minooka Chamber’s recent Business Spotlight highlights HUSH Salon on Sage in Channahon.

The new salon is at 24913 Sage St. in Channahon and is open Tuesday through Saturday by appointment, according to a news release from the chamber. The salon has been open for several months and has seven stylists, one receptionist and one on-call makeup artist.

“We are a high-end hair salon that features local, talented and experienced stylists who are dedicated to making our clients feel beautiful and pampered,” owner Hayley Pope said. “We pride ourselves on listening to our clients’ wants and needs and creating an experience that will add to our list of loyal, satisfied customers.”

The Channahon Minooka Chamber, which is part of the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce and Industry, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony in April to celebrate HUSH Salon on Sage’s grand opening.

To open the salon, Pope remodeled a 1950s ranch home, providing a comfortable and unique environment for clients. Pope and her team are proud to say they used all local contractors during the renovation process.

“We welcome HUSH to the Chamber with open arms,” said Christina Van Yperen, chamber executive director. “Stepping inside HUSH Salon on Sage is like walking into a little escape. It has a country feel with a modern twist and provides services for everyone.”

HUSH Salon provides hair styling for the entire family. This includes haircuts, permanents and texture treatments, hair coloring, formal styling and waxing services. Free shampoos are offered for all hair services in its spa-like shampoo room. The shampoo room features relaxing music, dim lighting and a warm towel head massage. Services are offered by appointment for personalized experience, but they will accept walk-ins when available. HUSH Salon emphasizes a customer-centric service where the customer’s needs are always the priority.

Future plans include promoting the newly-renovated porch area. HUSH Salon’s vision is to sell local organic pure products. Goat milk soap, soy candles, skin care items, bath bombs and unique gift items will be among the product selections. The space will also offer wedding and special events parties a place to relax and enjoy their special day while receiving makeup and hair-styling services.

“Because we are a hometown team, we are dedicated to our community and supporting local causes. We understand the importance of giving back and are looking forward to being an example of hometown pride,” Pope said.
