Danie Irwin


Licensed Cosmetologist

26 years


Danie is a lifelong resident of Crystal Lake and has been doing hair for over 25 years.  She started receptioning and assisting in a salon at the age of 15 which solidified her love of the industry.  When her children were young she ran a home based salon to be at home with them.  Now that they are older she is happy to be back in a full service salon where she can be around happy and energetic people. She enjoys getting to know her clients and spending time chatting with them while their color is processing.  Although perms, big hair, a teasing comb, and hair spray are still some of Danie's old favorites, she keeps current with new trends!  Adding vivid colors especially "Cubbie" blue peek-a-boo highlights is one of her favorites!  

Danie is always happy to talk about sports, especially her Cubbies, cooking and baking, her dogs, and of course her kiddos.

Jacob Wolinsky

Jacob basically grew up in a salon.  His mother is also a hair stylist and works out of her home, so he has a lot of great knowledge of the industry.

After high school, Jacob went to Pennsylvania to pursue a degree in music.  After graduation he realized that his true calling was cosmetology.  He is currently enrolled in school here in Crystal Lake.  He brings a lot of fresh ideas and is a fantastic asset to the salon.
