Meet Super Hero Gail Coughlin!
Gail owns Elevate Hair Boutique in Oak Park which employs 2 people.
What does your business do?
At Elevate Hair Boutique, we provide hair and beauty services in a private setting. We use only the highest quality eco-friendly and health conscious products and tools.
What is “super” about your business? Why is it special?
We strive to maintain a balance of class and trend, with an exclusive boutique salon ambiance. We provide a unique, all inclusive private appointment with several individualized perks.
Tell us a bit about yourself…
Among constantly researching beauty trends, hair cutting and coloring techniques, I enjoy spending time with my family and doing ‘market research’ at all the local restaurants, boutiques, and Oak Park treasures!
If you could pick a superpower, what would it be?
Fix bad hair cuts with the blink of an eye.
Why did you choose to invest in our community?
As a resident of Oak Park, I wanted to work close to home and take advantage of the unique opportunities that the business district offers.
What local organizations have you been able to support in the past?
I am an avid member of Chicago Cosmetologists, OPRF Chamber of Commerce, Oak Park Arts District Organization, and a variety of online charities.
What’s the weirdest thing you sell or offer? Or have there been any odd customer requests?
Hmmm. I retail a home grey hair cover-up, which reduces the frequency of client visits, kind of a double-edged sword for me!!
Name three of your favorite local businesses (besides yourself, of course!)
Jayne & Madison Street Shoes, Cucina Paradiso, and Addis Cafe for the honey vanilla latte!
