December 15, 2015 // Franchising.com // LOMBARD, ILLINOIS – Calling all men: there is a new salon in Lombard waiting just for you.
18|8 Fine Men’s Salon announced today the opening of its new salon in Lombard. The new salon is a unique concept designed to offer services that will leave men looking and feeling their best. The high-end salon offers a full range of grooming services for men in semi-private stations that allow each customer to relax and enjoy the upscale ambiance and expert service.
The name 18|8 is inspired by the discovery of adding 18% chromium and 8% nickel to steel in order to produce stainless steel – the backbone of hair grooming instruments. Just as these additions help steel to look and perform at the highest level, the salon’s goal is to help men look their best and leave feeling confident.
“When men walk into 18|8 they will quickly realize this is not an ordinary salon. It’s a retreat – a place where they can relax and enjoy themselves,” said Kristine Givens, who will open the Lombard salon in January 2016. “We are incredibly excited to be introducing 18|8 to this perfectly suited area.”
The new salon is conveniently situated in the Shops on Butterfield in Yorktown Shopping Center (314 Yorktown Shopping Center) in Lombard. 18|8 will offer a full range of grooming services from haircuts, styling and color to straight edge hot lather shaves, facials, waxes, manicures, scalp treatments and more. Each client will receive customized care as the staff takes the time to learn about each customer’s preferences, needs and personality.
“This original and upscale concept fills a previously unserved niche here in the Western suburbs of Chicago,” said Givens. “We believe our customers will love the personalized care and attention they receive.”
“We’re thrilled to have Kristine in the family. She shares our passion for the business,” said Griffiths, who serves as CEO of the company. “We look forward to seeing Kristine grow her business with our family.”
The Lombard salon can be reached by email at email@example.com or by phone at (630) 495-9575.
Claiming its name from the original formula for stainless steel, 18% chromium + 8% nickel added to steel, 18|8 Fine Men’s Salons offers its clients that same transformative effect – leaving men looking better, feeling better and performing better. Since launching in 2002, 18|8 has established itself as the only men’s salon catering to a discerning clientele with an upscale suite of hair care and salon services. 18|8 Fine Men’s Salons currently has 400 stores operating and in development.
