Thirty-five years ago, Studio One Salon & Spa owner Jane Levinsky invested $350 to open her salon in the back of a barbershop in Illinois. Fast forward to present day and she’s still open for business in DeKalba city about an hour west of Chicago known for the development of barbed wire and home to Northern Illinois University. After four different locations and lots of trial and error, Studio One has evolved into a thriving business that understands the importance of the beauty industry. With touches like the exclusive pedicure lounge, relaxing water therapy wall and its talented staff, the salon marries a menu of mind- and body-enhancing services within a contemporary setting.
