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.

  • 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.

  • Amanda Baer


    My favorite part about being a hairstylist is being able to make my clients feel beautiful and walk out of the salon with a bounce in their step. I started my career over 6 years ago, and 5 of those years have trained exclusively with Aveda. In 2012, I became a Certified Master Colorist with Aveda and plan to continue my dream to become an Aveda Color Educator. I specialize in curly and thick hair cutting techniques and natural foiling and color applications. I am also very passionate about special occasion and wedding style

  • Michelle Benjamin

    Esthetician/Make-up Artist

    I’ve been blessed with my gift for esthetics from a young age. After 21 years, my passion for my career continues to grow. It’s been my honor to be Advanced Aveda trained by the best in the industry, Horst Rechelbacher, the father of Safe Cosmetics, and Helga Hefner, AVEDA’s global educator. I pride myself on continuing my education to keep up with the latest industry standards. My approach is centered on natural skin care treatments, through the use of soothing essential oils which enhance the overall experience for all skin types. My customized flower and plant derived facials bring back a healthy, radiant, luminous glow while nurturing the mind through healing touch…

  • 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!

  • Johnathon Burch


    Hi! I’m Johnathon!  I have been working as a hairdresser for three of the five years I’ve been here in Champaign-Urbana. If I’m cutting, coloring, or styling…I’m in my element.

    Let’s work together and make great hair! Personally, I find quality time in playing music, writing, or just making people smile. Oh! And I love spending time with my two cats!

  • 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 Heflin

    Stylist/ 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!

  • Chandra Houston

    Master Stylist / Brazilian Blowout Certified

     I’m Chandra and I love hair! All types and all textures! Along with being Brazilian Blowout Certified, I am also a Ultratress Hair Extension Technician & Educator. I have been a hairdresser for 9 years but I have closer to thirty years of experience working with ‘natural’ hair that has not been chemically altered. I feel that my strength is versatility and I also provide my clients with nail services as well as facial waxing.

  • 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!
  • 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.

  • Danielle Schukar

    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.

  • Lauren Schroeder


    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!
