Alex Lopez Salon

17 years ago I opened my first salon “Alex Lopez Salon” in Chicago, Illinois and the technical center of Glam Make-up Studio for students to become professionals in the beauty industry and travel for hair and make-up Miss Universe 2012. This year I was blessed to open up my second beauty salon in north side of Chicago located at 1412 West Division. Currently, I am working with Univision TV and NBC 5 Anchors hair and make-up.  I believe that all this has been accomplished due to passion, commitment and dedication. I enjoy it very much, but the most important is that it comes from the heart and I’m grateful.

Since 1975, when Ladies & Gentlemen was a tiny space with 3 staff members, we thought of changing the world of beauty by building a staff of people who work as a team. The people who were staff members then are still with us today. These loyal staff members have been mentors to a countless number of fledgling stylists. Many of the new assistants started with our company immediately after graduating from beauty school.
