Q: What are your names and positions at Penny Lane Studios?
A: We are Christine Conley and Coral Gable, and we’re co-owners of Penny Lane Studios.
Q: How long have you been in the neighborhood?
A: We opened in November of 2012, so we have been open 2 1/2 years.
Q: What do you want our community to know about Penny Lane Studios?
A: We chose Logan Square specifically because of the people and the overall vibe of the neighborhood. We aim to attract clients that we genuinely want to get to know and work with for a long time to come.
Q: What’s your favorite summer activity in Chicago?
A: If we ever had any free time, we imagine that drinking beers on a patio would be ideal.
Q: What positive attributes does Penny Lane Studios bring to the community?
A: We pride ourselves in serving our neighbors as well as attracting an artist community through our work in theatre. We do our best to provide a comfortable, approachable atmosphere for people to come and get their haircut without feeling like they need to look or act a certain way. Since we opened we have donated services and hair product to over a dozen local schools/ charity organizations. We are hoping to get further involved with more organizations like PAWS in the future.
Q: What's the most interesting request a customer has ever made?
A: I'd say the most interesting clients are those who come in to shave their heads or donate their hair to charity. It's rare that anyone ever wants to lose more than an inch or two, so doing a big cut is always refreshing and fun.
