About Luis!

Luis DeLeon has worked professionally as a hair designer and stylist for over 10 years. He launched a successful career working with Dany Salon for the first 3 years, followed by 7 years at XEX Hair Salon. He got certified in 2015 by Aveda Color. With a constant desire to learn, he got certified in 2016 on hair extensions by Donna Bella hair extensions. After feeling comfortable with hair cutting and color techniques, he decided it was time to learn the art of makeup. So, in 2017, Luis got certified on Airbrush makeup.

A combined intuitive understanding of texture, balance, color, and geometry keeps Luis at the forefront of the top stylists in Chicago. Luis continues to merge the art of design and color in order to keep his clients looking amazing well into the future.

To our XEX family:

With COVID-19 devastating small businesses in Illinois and around the globe, XEX is no exception. In order to protect our community, we've made the difficult decision to temporarily close our doors as of Friday, March 20th, 2020. We hope to reopen on April 6th, 2020, though that date is tentative.  We will keep you updated with any changes that might affect our return date.

While the decision to temporarily close our doors is heartbreaking and difficult, we know that it's the right thing to do for our community. In doing what we know to be socially responsible, our hearts go out to our staff and the entire service industry.

We are a unique industry in that we don't receive a paycheck when we don't work. Our staff is definitely feeling the weight of their financial commitments, as the length of this crisis remains uncertain.

In an effort to help our staff as best we can, we’re offering our gift cards online and distributing half of all proceeds to our staff so that they can cover some of their expenses during this immensely difficult time. We’d be so grateful if you participated by purchasing a gift card in any denomination from our website here.

David will still be answering the phone (312-372-9211) and booking future appointments, as well as helping facilitate orders for gift certificates.  Please don't hesitate to reach out, as he'd love to hear from you.

We are closely following the guidance of global health experts at the World Health Organization (WHO) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are following the advice of Mayor Lightfoot and Governor Pritzker in their recommendations to ensure the health and safety of our stylists, our clients and our community.  

Prior to the plea for social distancing, we allowed our staff to remain home without having it impact their sick leave if they were in any way uncomfortable with going out and being in the salon. We are so proud of our team, who inspire us to work as hard as we can to remain hopeful and to look forward to the future when we will emerge stronger than ever.

Thank you in advance for your kindness and love.  We value you and appreciate you.  It's during these stressful and uncertain times that we realize all the things we've taken for granted and will miss during this difficult time.  We will miss greeting you after a long day, shaking your hand, giving you a hug, hearing about the kids, etc.  The list goes on and on.  We will look forward to seeing you all again soon and we'll have so much to celebrate.

Thinking of you and looking forward to seeing you soon.
