An ambitious entrepreneur in Chicago, Robert Patrizi currently owns and operates the leading salon HALO [FOR MEN]. Robert Patrizi purchased the Chicago business Halo Salon in January 2005. Recognizing a clear absence of salons that cater specifically to men, Robert Patrizi initiated Halo’s dramatic shift in focus. To perfect his concept of a men-only salon, he visited a variety of popular salon and spa destinations in London, New York City, Dallas, and Los Angeles. In September 2005, Robert Patrizi officially opened his new establishment, HALO [FOR MEN]. The business became an immediate success, leading Robert Patrizi to quickly open subsequent locations in the Chicago area. Currently HALO [FOR MEN] maintains locations in six Chicago neighborhoods: Ogilvie, Bucktown, Lincoln Park, Loop, South Loop, and West Loop. Under Robert Patrizi’s leadership, HALO [FOR MEN] focuses on providing high quality salon services in a sophisticate environment where men will feel welcomed and comfortable. In addition to haircuts and shampoo services, HALO [FOR MEN] also offers hot towel with facial toner, scalp massage, hand massage, paraffin hand wax, and more. While maintaining expert standards in quality, the salon features very reasonable prices. The company’s signature service, which even includes a commentary beverage, is available for $55. HALO [FOR MEN] has been featured in numerous publications and media sources, including Men’s Health Magazine, Where Magazine, Fox News Channel, Chicago Sun-Times, Playboy Magazine, NBC, and others. Robert Patrizi has also personally received recognition for his success in the salon industry. In 2009, Fashion Group International honored him with the Rising Star Award in the beauty category.
