Hair Salon & Spa

  • Paul Kane


    As a son of a freelance artist and a hairdresser, I began my career 40 years ago in Chicago. After a few years there, I had the opportunity to move to Champaign and open the first franchise Hair Performers salon.

    I was active as an educator for John Amico and in haircutting competitions and was actually pretty successful. I feel that is where my real strength is, although I do enjoy color as well.

  • Lynn Kane


    I had always hoped to blend having my own business and using my artistic creativity into the perfect career…hence Kane & Co. I enjoy change, and building a trusting relationship with my clients by giving them beautiful color and haircuts that suits each of them specifically. Besides hair, my passions are music, art, my cute little dogs, and of course my family.

  • Lauren Kesler


    Hi my name is Lauren and my passion is making clients feel beautiful through hair design and makeup! I have a bachelor’s degree from Illinois Wesleyan and cosmetology license from the Aveda Institute of Chicago.

    Before coming to Kane & Company, I was working at Michael Anthony Aveda Salon just off Michigan Avenue and a hair and makeup artist at Factor Women Model Management in Chicago- which I still freelance for when I have time. I specialize in haircutting, extensions, updos and makeup. I am thrilled to make Kane and Co. and Champaign my new home!

  • Hillary Boyter


    I firmly believe that a strong understanding of each client’s lifestyle will provide the best customized look for them. My commitment as a stylist is creative hair for everyday wear, and empowering people by giving them an individualized look.

  • Sara Dalbey


    Hi! I’m Sara, born and raised in Champaign! I was introduced to the beauty world at a young age and always knew that being a stylist was something I wanted to pursue. I am 6 years strong in the game and loving every minute!

    I have experience with all hair textures, colors, and lengths. Whether it’s a “Pinterest” perfect balayage, a short sassy brunette, or a fun vivid creative color, I want to bring your vision to life! Being creative and loving what I do is a plus, but helping others see their beauty is priceless. I love working with my clients and bringing out their inner rockstar!

  • Melissa Cave


    I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and started my hair training in 2012. After beauty school I started furthering my education at a concept Aveda salon in the Chicago land area. Along side in-salon training, I took many classes at the Aveda Institute of Chicago.

    I specialize in haircutting, color and special occasion styling. I’m so blessed to be part of the team at Kane and Company.

  • Teresa Albers

    Stylist/ Nail Technician

    I have been a stylist for twenty years and have been with Kane & Co. for 15 of those years! I specialize in women’s cuts, color, perms, up dos, men’s cut and all nail services.

    I am also well versed in working with several color lines including Schwarzkopf, Aveda, and Redken. I believe that every clients deserves to be listened to, and with a detailed consultation you will be assured a style that suites you and your lifestyle.

  • Carly Benjamin


    Helping my clients express their own unique personality with their hair is my number one goal! Since 2008, after attending Paul Mitchell the School, I have pursued becoming an educator for Eufora, and trained creatively with Aveda, Davines, and Paul Mitchell hair color lines but always finding a special connection to short women’s and men’s cuts.

    Making people feel better about themselves has always been a passion of mine!

  • Lauren Ennen


    After six years in the industry I am still blown away by the amount of talent and creativity I run into on a daily basis. Learning about the roots of hair styling is something that powers me. I specialize in Men’s styles and short hair by using different cutting techniques to create a shape that best suits my clients.

  • Jillian Sherman

    Master Colorist/ Wella Color Educator

    Since High School, hair has always been my passion. Being a stylist for nine years, I feel it has been nothing but a privilege to follow my dream. Five years ago I decided to further my career by becoming an educator for Wella Professional. I’ve loved every minute traveling from East Coast to West Coast educating and continuing my own education along the way, which I believe is vital in our industry. I specialize in all realms of hair coloring, women’s haircutting and absolutely LOVE color correction!

  • Beckie Lynch


    I love being around people and being in this profession has brought a lot of joy to my life over the years! I enjoy all aspects of hairdressing with cuts and hair coloring being my favorite, but I do have to say that I find bringing a smile to the faces of my clients is always the most rewarding!
  • Danielle Fernandez

    Esthetics/Skin Care

    I have had a ‘love/hate’ relationship with skin care since I was 10 years old. That is when years of prescriptions, topical creams, antibiotics, and failed skin regiments began. Hormone imbalances encouraged the use of esthetics services at a medical level, and so my love of skin care began!

    Over the past ten years of being in this industry, I have cherished helping to give my clients an understanding of good skin care.

    I am an educator for Clinical Care Skin Solutions and I love teaching and learning from other professionals. I specialize in anti-aging treatments, chemical peels, relaxing body treatments, microdermabrasion, and as painless as possible body waxing for both men and women.

  • Maddie Petit


    From a very young age I knew I wanted to do hair, so given the opportunity to go to beauty school during my last two years of high school I had to take it!

    I was able to start training and learning at a salon in Chicagoland before I even graduated high school! Now, I get to meet new people everyday and pursue my passion for making them look and feel their best! I feel very blessed to work at a salon like Kane & Co.

  • Alex Thompson

    Stylist/ Makeup Artist

    My commitment as a stylist is to listen carefully to what my clients want, to address their needs and then to provide solutions for their current style.

  • Ursa Wiley-Duncan


    After being in the industry for the past 15 years, I can safely say with confidence that I am experienced with all hair types and textures.

    I find joy in conquering all hair challenges involving both men and women’s styles, short and long, and ages young to the young at heart.

  • Mistie Williams


    Hi! I’m Mistie! I’ve lived in the area since 2003, and started doing hair in 2011. I have always wanted to become a hair stylist and enjoy every moment behind the chair.

    Helping people achieve a look that compliments their personality yet fits their lifestyle, that’s what I love to do.
