Sparrow
Tracey Gustave
Cut, $80
2545 N. Milwaukee Ave.
773-486-9300
THE PLACE: This tin-ceilinged salon is hipster central. Among the inked and pouty regulars, expect to see blogging ingenue/fashion muse/actress Tavi Gevinson.
THE WORD: Gustave is a wizard with edgy undercuts and natural curls.
WHAT WE GOT: Our loose curls tend to flatten at the roots and frizz into a triangle when they get too long. Marin took off four inches and added chin-grazing pieces for a neat, shoulder-length cut.
Bottom line: She managed to achieve the near-impossible: shiny, shapely tendrils that looked just as healthy air-dried as they did blown out straight.
