Just Divine Hair Studio opened its doors Mar. 23 at 100 Pontiac Business Center Drive, and over the past month, the business has been serving looks to the Elgin area.

The certified Aveda Salon offers a range of hair services including haircuts for women, men and children, hair coloring, perms, blow dry styles and more.

Salon owner, Dawn Baker has been in the industry for 26 years as a licensed cosmetologist and holds an instructors license. She previously worked at an Aveda salon in Sandhills for 14 years.

"We are an exclusive Aveda salon and we only carry the Aveda product line," Baker said. "We are specializing in high end salon services."

Baker explained that the Aveda brand not only has a specialized product line for revitalizing hair, but also has a mission beyond the salon industry.

"Aveda is a naturally derived product line that is vegan," Baker said. "The main focus is fair trade and giving back the community. It's very holistic in a sense, we try to use as much of the naturally derived plant oils as we can. One of the important things is the small footprint they leave, too."

Just Divine Hair Studio also offers a range of aesthetic services. Eyelash lifting and tinting, eyelash extensions, brow shaping, brow tinting and facial waxing are part of the salon's menu of services.

Hours of operation are Tues. through Thurs. from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m., Fri. from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sat. from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The salon is closed Sunday and Monday, however all waxing services are only offered at the salon Monday by an esthetician.

Baker said she is actively looking for new talent and experienced stylists to join their team. Those interested in applying can contact Baker via the salon's Facebook page.

Special discounts will be available to educators, those in the military and first responders with a valid ID.

Additional information about Just Divine Hair Studio is available on the salon's website and Facebook page.
