A Message Of Welcome & Safety To Our Guests

A Shear Encounter is a salon you have grown to trust. Please be assured we are following all CDC and State of Illinois guidelines to keep our staff and guests safe. Please know that in the 35 years of our business, A Shear Encounter has proudly practiced and aheared to the lastest salon industry best practices and guidlines.  As you have come to respect by witnessing, we do not compromise on anything at A Shear Encounter.

We ask for PATIENCE. Lots and lots of patience! We know everyone wants in and everyone wants accommodations, we will be booking with our industry guidelines.

We will be doing our absolute very best to accommodate everyone and as efficiently as we can. It will take time for our receptionists to make all the necessary calls and make all of the bookings happen. Rest assured it will be done!

Please understand that it will take some time as we adhere to the temporary State of Illinois guidlines that dictate limits in the amount of clients and stylists able to be interacting at one time.
