Check out what’s hot, what’s creating excitement and buzz in the industry, which keratin products the KeraGirls can’t live without, and the Keratin Complex® salons and stylists we’ve deemed especially spotlight-worthy.
In 1975, Teddie Kossof opened his namesake salon in the then-unchartered Northfield suburb of Chicago with a unique vision: Create a concept salon with multiple beauty experiences under one roof. Almost 40 years later, the salon has evolved into a veritable emporium of beauty, style and wellness, offering various services including hair, spa, fashion, alterations and fitness, to name a few.
We chatted about the salon’s success with Teddie’s son, co-owner and salon director, Alan Kossof, who built his career in the family salon quite literally from the ground up. “I grew up immersed in the salon’s culture, sweeping floors, folding towels and cleaning mirrors,” says Alan. Now, “there are never two days that are exactly the same. The beauty business is a lifestyle and each day, you can have an amazing discovery of a day. That’s something to look forward to.”
