Steve has been passionate about hair for as long as he can remember. He grew up on the North Shore of Chicago where he still resides today. Steve graduated from New Way Barber College in 1979. From there, Steve took his newly found skills and co-founded Fred's Barber Shoppe of Lake Forest. Steve remained there for 13 years, during which time he took an educational sabbatical, attending The Hairstyling Institute of Charlotte North Carolina for advanced Hair Shaping and Razor Cutting Techniques.
Steve has never stopped learning, also receiving certification from Salon Development Corporations Salon Management and Boot Camp training programs. He is
a Master Barber and Stylist with additional training in Hair Color and Chemical Waving. Feeling confident in his experiences and the success of Fred's Barber Shop in Lake Forest and two years at Highlights Salon in Highland Park, Steve opened his own shop in the town of Highwood, which he currently calls home. He named his salon – Steve’s Hair Studio and took a vow to change the face of the modern day salon and barbershop experience. He was situated directly across from Fort Sheridan and from 1994-2005 Steve began to build and expand his clientele.
In June of 2005, Steve moved to a more central area of Highwood, IL and renamed the salon, The Hair Studio by Steve. His full service family oriented salon continues to grow in Highwood Illinois and serves clients form Lake Forest, Deerfield, Bannockburn, Lake Bluff, Highwood, Highland Park, and points beyond.
