Born and raised right here in the heart of Chicago, Adam was gifted with a creative flair and a passion for helping people to fully realize their own individual and unique style. He often describes himself as having the charisma and confidence of David Bowie, the conceptual creativity of Boy George, and the whimsical imagination of Tim Burton; all of whom inspire Adam’s androgynous lifestyle. Adam is a triple threat: an experienced makeup artist, an innovative and progressive hair stylist, and a naturally gifted colorist.
In 2010, Adam graduated from the world renowned Paul Mitchell The School – Chicago and has been behind the chair as a licensed cosmetologist for 6 years and has worked his way to becoming a Senior Stylist at Goran Coban Salon in less than 5 years. He is completely proficient with any and all color services; turning flat and dull brunettes into multidimensional bronzed goddesses or lifting his clients to glistening shades of blonde. Adam has earned much praise with his blonde clientele and his flawless work has earned him the unofficial nickname “The Blonde Whisperer” among them. From traditional champagne tones to fashion forward platinum hues, he creates a personalized color formula for each client and tailors his haircuts in a way that perfectly complements their features and facial structure. For his male clientele, he uses a fusion of classic “shear over comb” and cutting edge barbering techniques to produce a contemporary yet professional haircut.
Adam keeps his clients informed at all times during their service, explaining step by step what he is doing and the reason behind it to demonstrate his professional knowledge and place any worries to rest. He educates his clients on personal maintenance, in between appointments, so they get the most out of their salon visit every time. Always going above and beyond a client’s expectations, Adam produces results while maintaining the health and integrity of his client’s hair.
