we are here

The Attractivators was created in 2017 by the anti-diva, no drama here, super hair duo Anna and Valerie. Prior to opening these doors, Anna and Val worked together for over a decade. They knew what a salon could be, and they knew they had to create it. So they built a place where everyone instantly feels welcome and ready to find their hair expression. The philosophy has always been that good hair shouldn’t be hard work (for you!) 

The focus is simple; Combine technical precision with an eye for detail and individuality. Mix in an understanding of what the hair wants to do and you’ve got yourself a fabulous head of hair. Simply put, our mission is to give you an experience that can’t be matched. Our team of talented Attractivators are ready to make you look and feel your best.

the attractivators
have you covered.



Being a small business is rife with adventure.

Our mission to you, our awesome clients is providing kick ass hair while making sure you feel how much we value and appreciate you!

We also aim to provide a kick ass work environment. This includes medical, dental, and vision coverage, short and long term disability, 401 k with employer match, paid time off, continuing education, and competitive wages.

Staying true to these goals requires us to stay adaptable and adjust how we operate. We are navigating through increased cost of goods, increased minimum wages, increased health care premiums, and increased Paid Time Off requirements. 

We’re sure it’s no surprise to you that this shit is expensive! (Chicago’s new Paid Time Off ordinance will cost us an additional $65,000 a year)
As is the cost of goods.
(Color cost has risen 37% in the past 5 years)

Our pricing structure is changing February 1st.
Haircuts will increase by $5.
Color service pricing will now be calculated by amount of product and time used. Please see each stylist’s page on the website for specifics.

Thank you for your continued faith, trust,  and positive juju. We love you and love giving you awesome hair.

Xoxo, A&V
