more information on our group classes!


Since opening our doors in Fall of 2013, we have remained passionate about education for both our staff and clientele. Starting with our first curriculum “Curling Iron 101″ in November 2013, we quickly realized our clients were in need of hands on beauty education; to this day we have taught over 1,000 women in Chicago to curl their hair, perfect a smokey eye and much more!

Our classes have quickly become a fixture in our salon schedule and we are now committed to teaching 1-2 nights every week at our flagship in Lakeview. We invite you to browse our current list of classes here: and check back frequently as we regularly add new dates and topics.

To help you understand a little more about our classes, please review some FAQ’s below. If you need any further help with booking our classes, please phone us at 773-880-9180 or email hello@

What is goldplaited? goldplaited is Chicago’s first and only dedicated finishing salon. We specialize in makeup applications, blowouts, braids & updo’s seven days a week.

Where is goldplaited? 2803 n. Sheffield, in Lakeview.

Is there parking near the salon? Yes! There is plenty of metered parking on Sheffield and on nearby streets. We are also minutes away from the Diversey brown line stop.

How long are the classes? We schedule 90 minutes for both the demonstration and the hands on practice. There is no formal end time so students are welcome to leave when they wish or stay until they grasp the concept.

What do I need to bring?  As a full time finishing salon, we have all tools and products necessary to learn in class. Many students bring their own curling irons or makeup products so that they can learn with their own tools however this is absolutely not a requirement.

Can I buy products that I use in class? Yes! We retail 99% of the products and tools we demonstrate in class. If we don’t, we can order it for you.

What if I can’t make the session I signed up for? We adhere to our ticketing site dabble’s cancellation policy which is refunds or transfers if cancelled outside of seven days before the class. We are unable to extend refunds or transfers inside seven days. You are welcome to gift your class admission to a friend to attend in your place.

Can I hold a private group class? Absolutely! Our classes make for an excellent girls night out, birthday or bachelorette party and corporate events! We’d love to help you coordinate, please email us: . We also offer one on one lessons, please email to inquire.

What if I don’t see a time or curriculum that works for me? We love suggestions! Call or email us to suggest a topic or date.

Most importantly, can I bring wine? We’re glad you asked, yes you can! goldplaited is BYOB and nothing goes together like learning and alcohol.
