A new hair and beauty salon is coming to Lakeshore East. Late this fall, Gordon
Salon plans to open its doors at 333 E. Benton Place, between Subway and Cu-
ticle Salon. Gordon Salon is owned by husband-and-wife team Tony and Pam
Gordon, who own several locations throughout Chicagoland. According to Tony Gordon, customers can expect the interior of the high-end Aveda salon to
have “an organic-chic design,” inspired by the surrounding area.
When the Gordons’ Lakeview location was slotted for demolition due to CTA expansion, they saw it as a sign. “We had been talking about opening a
downtown Chicago location for a while and once we got the notice that the
building will be demolished, it seemed like the universe telling us it was time,”
The entire award-winning Lakeview team will be moving to Lakeshore East. At the Lakeview location, the salon won Chicago Magazine’s Reader’s Choice for Best Hair Salon in 2016 and 2017. The Gordon Salon has its own advanced training program for stylists. “Think of it as a graduate school for cosmetologists,” says marketing manager Reina Urban.
The pair of owners pride themselves on providing quality services while making clients feel like family. “Gordon Salon is a family and we want all our guests to feel that warmth and welcome whenever they visit our salon,” says Pam Gordon.
Residents have noticed the lack of a nearby salon in the area and are excited about the prospect of one opening its doors. “I have wanted an Aveda salon
close since I moved to Chicago,” said Lakeshore East resident Alexis Jones.
“It has been very obvious that this neighborhood needs a salon.”
