Hi Lori:

Just wanted to give praise for your friendly persona and professionalism. Always a treat to enter the salon and receive a warm “hello”. Thanks for always giving me a great cut and color plus always being on time for my appointment. You are a gift to anyone who knows you.

Hi Lori,

“Congrats” on your 20th year in business and in the very nice article in the paper! You certainly should feel proud of what you have accomplished. Your personal service and flexibility with scheduling are unmatched! Best wishes for the “next 20”!

See you soon,


Hello Lori,

I just wanted to send you this note letting you know how much I appreciated you staying late for me and adding me to the end of your work day last Saturday. Like I said, I was scheduled to leave on a business trip later in the week but it got moved up to Sunday and I was in desperate need of a haircut and you were nice enough to stay and help me out. I don’t know of anyone else that would have done that for me but you did and I am very happy you did.

You’re the best!

I am so glad Karla referred me to your Hair Studio. I am very particular about my hair color and what you did was perfect. It has never looked better. I should have come to you sooner!

Hey Lori,

I wanted to let you know that my husband really likes his haircut and so do I. He looks so much better with a “professional” haircut. He even liked your Salon. He said he felt very comfortable.

Thanks again Lori,

Mary K.

Lori Friend of Lori Friend Hair Studio:

I wanted to let you know how satisfied we are and how glad we are that we were referred to your studio. It was great being able to come in and have my two daughters, my husband and myself get our haircuts by you all in the same visit. You have a unique shop there. We like the way you do things. You are very nice and you are a good person as well as a very good stylist. I do not know of any other hair salon that operates the way yours does. We will be repeat customers for sure.

I’ve been going to you for 25+ years and wouldn’t change for nothing. You’re the best!


Thank you for doing such a good job with my hair. My highlights look natural and I love the cut! You’re awesome.


Thanks for the excellent job you do with all of us. I really appreciate the relaxing environment you create in your salon. Best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful Christmas and happy New Year!

Hi Lori,

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much I’m enjoying my haircut and color! I was in Spain last week, with high heat and humidity – and thanks to your great styling/cut, my hair was fine! The extra length (your suggestion) worked well for me, as I pinned it up one day, French braided another, and the other days, the curls were manageable and stayed together – I’m so glad you showed me how to do the bangs, and how much better the rest is, when you “don’t touch it – just let it dry!”

I hope your summer is going well – I’ll see you in Sept. I’m so glad that you are cutting and coloring my hair again! You are very talented!

Take care,



Hi, this is Lori Friend. As you know, I have a unique situation at my Studio. I am the owner of the building and the business. This allows me complete control of my environment. And as you are already aware of, I am the only person ever in my Studio other than my client.

While I have been closed, I have had the entire Studio sanitized by a professional cleaning service. I had a plexiglass shield installed at the reception desk. I have purchased hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and disposable gloves for myself and my clients to wear when they come in. I have always sanitized my shears and equipment with Barbicide and alcohol and will continue that protocol. I will use clean covers on the shampoo chairs and the styling chairs before each client. Your clothing and skin will never touch any chairs as they will be covered and only used for you. Everyone will have a clean cape that would be washed after each use.

I will wear a face mask during your appointment. Please wear your own face mask. I also have purchased a non-contact infrared thermometer and I will be taking the temperatures of each client upon their arrival (recommended by industry standards).

I have installed remote electronic door locks on my front doors. I will keep the doors locked and only let the people in that have appointments to keep up the social distancing and also this will absolutely eliminate any unnecessary foot traffic. When you arrive for your appointment, stay in your car and text me to let me know you are here. When I receive your text, I will come up and open the door for you and at that time you can come in.

Due to scheduling there may be times where I will have one other client in the Studio. Because of this, I have converted my office into a separate room where I can provide chemical services to a client and keep the door shut while I may provide another service to another client in the front part of the Studio. This way each client will always be in separate rooms. Most of the time there will be only one client in the Studio and never more than two and if that happens, they will always be in separate rooms. If any of my clients do not feel comfortable with one other client in a separate room, please let me know and I will make sure that does not happen during your appointment.

I feel with all I have mentioned above, that I could operate my business safely under these conditions. I have talked with several health care professionals and they have agreed with me that I would be practicing the safest and strictest of guidelines that are recommended and required. I truly feel that my Studio will be one of the safest businesses in Libertyville, or anywhere for that matter, not only for me but most importantly, for you.

Thank you,
