Edyta-Owner/Master Stylist-Cosmetologist/Makeup

I opened Strada Salon in 2007 because I wanted to create a place where guest fell comfortable, where they receive the service they deserve ,and a style they want.

Hair has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was 5 years old and I was braiding every ones hair. Whoever was seating anywhere at my house, I was right behind them fixing their hair.

At the age of 15, I started a beauty school in Poland for 3 full years.School system was different back then, I had to choose who I was going to be in the future right after 8th grade.I was studying theory in school for one week and I was getting my behind the chair skills every 2nd week in one of the most popular salon "TRENDY" by salon owner Anna who was my teacher ,my friend Dorota and my friend Slawek, Master stylist who is a co-founder of Kublin & Berentowicz Academy in Poland.I'm still in touch with them and every time I'm in Poland I still go to their trainings to learn something new. I also keep checking the latest news and trends in Europe on their websites on monthly basis.

2006 I was trained by Japanese company "Milbon" in New York for Japanese hair straightening & moisturizing / reconstructive treatments.
Locally I love "Aquage" classes where I can learn new cutting tips and up-do's. 
2010 entire salon was introduced and got trained in Keratin Treatments by "Global Keratin". I'm trained in "UltraTress" & "So-Cap extension" .

Since I'm also a cosmetologist I would like to invite you to experience European Facials which will benefit your skin and wax services done with soy based depilatory system "NuFree" which was a 2012 Professional Award Winner .I offer make-up and lash/eyebrow tinting. 

My goal is to create individual style that fits client personality and lifestyle. Healthy and beautiful hair is what I want for my clients. I specialize in corrective color and custom changes in your cut & color.
As the salon owner I want you to know, that styles are changing quickly, and we know that it’s vitally important to keep up. You can be confident that all the stylists here receive ongoing training in cutting, coloring, and styling. We’re always up-to-date on the latest trends.

Whether people come to see me, or any of the stylists here, I want every customer to walk out the door feeling great.

Basia-Receptionist/ Nail technician/ Makeup Artist

I have started my carrier in beauty industry about 10 years ago learning few things at the same time. First I started as a receptionist and after knowing everything about reception area I decided to add makeup to my skills. It was always my dream to become a makeup artist since I was in college doing every ones makeup.

I took a lot of different classes for years and I have worked with different makeup lines, like Glo Minerals, Grafton, Mac. I offer day makeup, evening, corrective, stage, special occasions and bridal makeup. I can also add temporary lashes for you when you need them.

In the beginning of 2011, I was hungry to get more training in different corner of beauty industry and I decided to go to school and become a nail technician, so I can serve our clients needs. I really like making my clients nail as beautiful as they can be with high quality service at reasonable price.

Justyna-Senior Stylist/ Cosmetologist

My hair stylist career started 8 years ago.
I graduated from Haskana Institute in Palatine and begin working right after school with one of my best teachers in her salon in Arlington Heights. I moved to Algonquin area and that is where I found my current place of work, Strada Salon.

I don’t limit myself, because I always feel I can learn more to expand my artistic creativity with hair coloring and cutting. I learned so much trough the years with changing trends and hair styles, which is why I enjoy hair shows and classes that helps me keep up with constantly changing fashion, for example newest course for Global Keratin Treatment (certified). My favorite part of the day is when my clients are happy and satisfied with their hair style an they are coming back.
