Bentley Hair and Beauty, now open in the Gold Coast of Chicago, is a sophisticated and modern full-service hair salon specializing in customized hair services for all clients. Owned and operated by former KPMG businesswoman, Jennifer Long Riordan, Bentley Hair and Beauty is an Irish-owned enterprise bringing Europe’s chicest looks to the streets of Chicago.

A veteran of the business industry for over 15 years, Riordan has fulfilled her dream of opening her own salon in the Gold Coast. With her hand-selected team of solely senior stylists, Bentley Hair and Beauty sets itself apart by providing each client with personalized services from experts who can do it all. Passionate about hair, with the necessary technical expertise and vast knowledge of the craft, the salon’s senior stylists ensure each customer the best quality of service.

Bentley Hair and Beauty is a tasteful salon suite space centered on each client’s experience. Riordan’s goal is to bring a warm Irish friendliness to every client interaction. Setting the tone at the salon’s entry, an abundance of natural light shines through the vast floor-to-ceiling window presenting the perfect lighting for flawless color.

Complemented by a modern chandelier and plush velvet accents, the sleek space features hardwood flooring and a broad display of high-quality products including Kerastase, L’Oréal and Shu Uemura.

Lead stylists, Danielle Reilly and Stephen Donovan, have both been in the hair industry for over a decade trained by Europe’s elite. Prior to their American debut, the two worked for Peter Mark, one of the largest privately-owned hair companies in Europe. Their perfected craft has earned the trust from luxury salons and clients all over the world for cuts, color and style.

Stephen Donovan educated and trained Peter Mark’s teams in all aspects of hair and achieved the exclusive Color Degree/Color Specialist designation after studying with L’Oréal Professional, the color line used at Bentley. Danielle Reilly has the distinguished expertise to match managing two high-end Chicago boutiques before Bentley. “What sets Bentley apart is that we are made up of exclusively senior stylists, which gives every client top-notch service. The high-end salon’s strong team gives the ultimate standard of hair,” said Reilly.

The salon services include women’s and men’s haircuts, color, highlights, balayage, blowouts, and extensions. Respectively, women’s haircuts start at $100 and men’s at $45. All-over color begins at $180 and highlights start at $110. Balayage is offered at $160, while extensions begin at $500.
