Escape the Ordinary Salon Experience




Escape Salon, in Northbrook, provides 100 percent organic hair care and beauty services in a relaxed atmosphere using Organic Way (Oway) brand products, the world’s first professional organic hair color, care and styling line that uses biodynamic, organic and fair trade ingredients.
