A French Beginning
Following graduation from the Centre de Promotion de la Coiffure in France, Parto Naderi began practicing his art at Jean Louis David and Régis Haute Coiffure, two of the most frequented salons of French celebrities.
"I became a hair stylist thanks to a summer job at Jean Louis David Salon when I was living in France," Naderi said. "Just by the nature of the salon, I had a great opportunity to gain experience with runway events. By the end of the summer, I discovered that I really enjoyed working in the beauty business and that I had a talent at it."
Naderi moved to Chicago in 1991 with the goal of running his own salon as a fashion leader in the city. He has owned Parto Naderi – Creation de beaute – Hair Salon & Day Spa since 2001.

Naderi believes that communication is important in order to run a successful salon. He prides himself on a salon that is upscale but not uptight.
In addition, education and creative freedom are cornerstones to his management style.
"I do things as in France," Naderi said. "Each new staff member spends a good amount of time in our workshop before going onto the floor. It’s important to invest the time working with them. I take great pride in the skill of my staff and can say with confidence that they are highly experienced and creative."
Most of Naderi’s stylists have 10-15+ years of experience.
"A great hairstylist understands the balance necessary between discipline and creativity," Naderi said. "They can think quickly and know how to adapt their skill to each client’s lifestyle needs and beauty desires. This in itself is an art and is the formula necessary to bring out the client’s individual beauty and to go beyond their expectations….consistently…with each and every visit."
When Parto Naderi opened his salon in 2001, he wanted to stay in touch with the fashion industry. Naderi participated in many of Chicago’s top runway shows, which gave him a chance to be creative and step away from the salon chairs.
Naderi enjoys fashion trends in hair and make-up. Over the past 20 years, Parto and his team have styled models for some of Chicago’s top fashion shows.
At Parto Naderi Salon & Day Spa, the philosophy is simple:
Great hair and makeup artists treat each client as an individual. They know it’s important to understand the client’s lifestyle and personal perception of beauty.
Then, through years of crafted technique, natural creativity and artistic vision, the artist unlocks the client’s potential for beauty, and makes it a reality. It’s really quite simple. Or is it?
One thing is certain. We’re not all alike.
Every year Parto Naderi scours the globe to bring top trends in beauty and products back to Chicago, in addition to creating some of his own.
"Sharing the knowledge of my findings with my staff is only the beginning part of our creative process as a team of professionals at Parto Naderi," Naderi said.
Naderi visits Paris’ major hair show each year and visits top salons to learn about the world’s fashion and trends in Europe. Although not all of the European trends work in America, he tries to educate himself on as much in the industry as possible.
"It serves as inspiration for our own natural creative nature. It also gives us great beauty treasures to share with our clients who seem to greatly appreciate it."
