Meet The Team
Wanting to explore a creative field, Alexis went to beauty school in high school, joining Gordon right after. The team based culture and education opportunities encouraged her decision and she has been a part of our team for over 7 years now. Alexis loves color services, especially foils, hair painting, and color corrections, regardless of the shades and tones. This comes from her love of projects and long processes that leave a client with their best look.
Coming from a history of family members working with hair, Haley has been in the industry for 9 years. She has been with Gordon Salon since graduation from cosmetology school, building relationships with her clients and team members and has grown to a master level stylist at our Wilmette location. Haley thrives on all things hair, but especially loves highlighting and women’s cuts, especially those bobs or medium cuts with layers.
“I love making people feel better about themselves and getting to have girl talk all day!” She is extremely passionate about doing hair color. She is also an expert in special occasion hair and updos and has been an integral part of many a bride’s big day.
“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. Color is one of my passions and with Aveda the possibilities are endless. I like to keep up with the latest trends in styling so each guest leaves feeling fresh."
Having been in the hair business since 2012, Kailah considers one of her most important jobs to be educating her clients about Aveda’s plant-powered products. With her tools in hand, Kailah loves working with dimensional color, men’s cuts, and fine hair. It always brings a smile when she is able to make finer haired clients feel full and healthy.
Being a mother to 5 boys and their several pets, Mary has a caring nature to make you feel right at home. Having grown up in northern Illinois, Mary earned her beauty license in '08 from Pivot Point in Evanston. She has 12 years of experience as a hairdresser, and enjoys all types of services, but has a special interest in highlights and men's cuts.
Robin feels confident she can provide a stylish, personalized, and confidence boosting haircut to anyone sitting in her chair. After a thorough consultation with her clients, she is able to customize their color to them. In addition to cuts and color, she also loves blowouts, special event styling, and facial waxing.
Currently, Robin is on maternity leave.
