Sarah is among the truly rare individuals who successfully have worked through their own complex compositions to realize their dream. Many of these people wear their persona on a sleeve. Instead, Sarah’s personality is defined by her Pin Curls Salon and the coifs she and her staff create each day.
In this instance, Sarah who herself is part intellect, part creative, part retro, 100% “hip” and another 100% “determined” pulled together all of her personal talents to create a salon that screams “chic” and styles that are simply “all that.”
The process involved a number of impressive options for Sarah.
- A) Head to Hollywood and make a go of it in the movies . . .
- B) Relo to New York City and Broadway . . .
- C) Sign on with Disney and travel wherever , whenever . . .
- D) Drop anchor in the community she has called “home” and bring a fresh face to Chicago Avenue . . .
Since “all of the above” was not a consideration, Sarah chose to invest in Chicago’s West Town Community, not far from where she had first attended the Chicago Academy for the Arts. Today, Pin Curls, a Sarah McGinnis Focus Salon, offers a comprehensive array of hair style, coloration and treatment services and products for both women and men.
The interior and exterior of Pin Curls on the northeast corner of Chicago Avenue and Paulina Street have been totally renovated and updated to provide a warm, enchanting salon environment. The one-time bank location has been tastefully designed with colors, accents and salon features that blend traditional old warm charm and overall contemporary appearance.
All is testament to Sarah’s appreciation for traditional retro mores and designs, her creative talents and ability to deliver hot looks in a quality environment.
I have been attracted to hair my whole life. As a kid I recall my hair styling abilities not only with dolls but with my sisters as well. In high school, I can remember being in activities that involved styling and makeup.
Still, I didn't pursue a career as a hair stylist right away. After I went to college to study art for two years, I realized that the artistic women inside of me wanted to combine my two biggest passions, hair and art. That's when I realized I wanted to join the beauty industry.
I specialize in precision coloring, styling and design. With five years of experience, I enjoy working with clients to create individual styles. I'm constantly working on innovative methods to push the boundaries of modern hair design and to expand my artistic ability. Whether you want a classic cut/color or a funky avant-garde style, I'll be sure to give you a fresh hair design that fits your individual lifestyle.
My mission is to enhance the beauty from the inside out and give each client the balance they need to continue a daily regimen that will provide longevity to the new transformation.

I come to Pin Curls with over 15 years of design experience. Beginning my career as an architect, I learned early on the importance of structure, color theory and balance. Now fully positioned in the hair and makeup industry, I continue to expand my artistic and technical abilities.
I specialize in precision cutting, curly hair and color tailored to each individual cut. I collaborate with each client to design a look that compliments their personal style.
I have been a nail technician since 2007. I have a lifelong desire to provide my clients with the best spa nail service possible. I specialize in acrylic, no-chip and natural nail care. Every client receives a relaxing massage as part of my services. My pedicures are always special...just like my clients. I make sure every client leaves my chair happy and eager to return. Come visit me so I can make you look and feel special.
I entered the beauty industry in 2008 because I like to make my clients look and feel beautiful. I specialize in the perfection of natural nails. I love treating you with a massage to finish your perfect nail experience. I am also an expert in threading, which is the ancient method of hair removal used to give clean lines and great shape to the eye brows, lip or face. I use 100% cotton thread, which is then twisted and rolled along the surface of the skin entwining the hair into the thread and then lifted out of the hair follicle. I enjoy listening to my client's needs and offering quality services in a fabulous environment. Let me treat you to a relaxing experience.
