Starship Salon opens
A new vegan-friendly, cruelty-free salon opens for business.
Starship Salon Don’t let the name of this small, three-chair salon fool you: You can’t get space-age haircuts here. The name has two points of origin: owner Trisha Star’s last name and one of her favorite songs, “We Built this City” by Starship. And the products—cruelty-free and vegan-friendly, including Logan Square–based line North Coast Organics—are all about loving the earth. Star’s even selling natural makeup in the shop. “It’s not about being a hippie and smelling like patchouli,” she says. “It’s about educating the consumer.” Services include cuts (starting at $70 for women, $48 for men), color (starting at $70), waxing, and makeup and hair styling for special events. 2503 W Chicago Ave (312-391-7827, starshipsalon.com).
