A Libra Sun / Virgo Moon with a Mission to  Empower Others

I'm Dahlia! I've wanted to be a hairstylist since I was eight. In 2013 I finally began styling the many heads of hair that Chicago has gifted me the opportunity to play with.

One of the reasons I love my craft so passionately is the constant changing industry that the world of hair provides us stylists.

 I pride myself on my endlessly curious and analytical personality. I think my willingness, almost need, to try anything once is my best quality. It's the driving force that pushes me to continue to evolve and refine myself and the skills that I work hard every day at.


My intention is to make everyone feel comfortable enough to be themselves whilst also inspiring the possibilities for a transformation. I’ve found that even a subtle modification can be enough for a fresh and modern take on a classic.

I feel so lucky to be able to pursue my craft while spending my days getting to know so many amazing people.

And What to Expect

I started Split Emerald to dedicate a space to my clients where I can empower them and provide a comfortable and inclusive safe space where they feel supported and are excited to revisit. 

Emeralds represent unconditional love. They’re known to promote friendship and enhance positive energy while creating confidence that boosts a renewing personal power. 

The properties of the emerald have kept me feeling attached to this precious stone for as long as I can remember. So much so that I felt the need to name my business venture, and dedicated half of my head to being split with the many shades of green emerald’s offer.

Located in the heart of Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood, Split Emerald Hair Loft is a private loft space where you'll receive individualized attention from me!

You’ll find me inside of Salon Lofts working among other beauty/wellness industry artists and healers who are also running their businesses out of SL loft spaces.

Come in and leave recharged.
