A Hair Makeover Contest and a Summer Beauty Party, Courtesy of Sine Qua Non

Ladies and Gentlemen! Summer is coming and it’s time to update your look with a makeover. So how about a FREE makeover?! That’s right, free and sponsored by Sine Qua Non Salons. Their newly-launched Desperate Measures campaign is designed to help you get that much-needed cut and color, and all you need to do is enter the contest!


I can’t help but mention how grateful I am to be one of the faces of the campaign, which is an opportunity that came to me through my work as the Beauty Contributor for Chitown Fashionista and as a style blogger on my own site, Belle Meets World.

When I visited the Lincoln Park location (2766 N Lincoln Ave) for the campaign photo shoot, I knew I wanted luscious, voluminous waves. Not a problem for them at SQN. A blowout with a round brush plus some finger-teasing and hairspray did the trick to get me a big beautiful blown out style. I also got my makeup done during the shoot, and I loved what their makeup artist was able to achieve with hot pink lips and some shimmery shadow. It went perfectly with my favorite outfit!

Joining me on the shoot was Julianne Lopez of Jules a la Mode, Lindzi Shanks of The Trendy Sparrow and Dani McGowan of Mermaid Waves.  We had such a great time learning about the campaign, getting styled together and goofing off ‘backstage’.

To celebrate the launch of the Desperate Measures campaign and contest, Sine Qua Non is hosting a Summer Style Bar.




Join me and my lovely co-hosts at the Lakeview location (3417 N. Lincoln Ave) for mini consultations, makeup touchups and a braid bar. Small bites and a little bubbly will be on deck as well. Just make sure you RSVP, as space is limited.

Now, lets talk about how you can enter to win this FREE hair makeover I keep talking about!

Quite simply, you’ll need to 1) take some funny pics that show how DESPERATE you are for some hair cut and color TLC, 2) submit your information and photos here, and 3) share your pics on social media to get votes! Each social media share counts as a vote. The winner will receive a FREE hair cut and color makeover, compliments of Sine Qua Non! The contest will be run every month, so there’s plenty of opportunities to win throughout the year.

What are you waiting for?! Enter the Desperate Measures contest now!

Good luck with the contest and most importantly, may the best (i.e. most “desperate”) woman win!
