Our Philosophy

Dean Carver believes that "classic" never goes out of style. While fads may appeal to our younger clientele, true classic style is elegant, efficient and simple...transcending time. A great hairstyle must have a great haircut, one that allows the hair to be easily maintained even at home.

Our staff is a collective of experienced well-trained designers and colorists. Many are former salon owners themselves., with advanced education in all forms of hair coloring and color correction. Each member of our team shares a creative passion to see that your finished color and look are nothing short of magnificent. Simply put, we are the very best at what we do.

Simply put, we are the very best at what we do. COLOR.  Our color of choice is FRAMESI, ..a rich, vibrant, non-fading, cream color from Milan, Italy.

Our sole purpose is to serve YOU.  Talk to us.  Tell us what you are trying to achieve in hair color, and the finished look you want.  We will do the rest.  We excel in the art of "listening".

Established over 38 years ago, DEAN CARVER was the first salon in Springfield to introduce professional skin care.  Our basic facial treatment includes 2 masks, vacuuming, and hydration.  We offer treatments for every skin type and problem.  Our acid facial treatments help bring a new glow to your face, and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.

As a full service salon, we provide an array of professional services for both men and women...including, but not limited to, electrolysis, waxing, nails, pedicures, body wrapping (slimming technique), massaging, make-up, hair extensions, tanning treatments, hair pieces for men and wigs/additions for women.

Since our beginning in 1964, DEAN CARVER has booked over one million appointments.  We have served people in all walks of life including stage, screen, and television celebrities, business and professional people, everyday workers, and, of course, the Illinois Governor's Mansion. 

Please browse through our web site, and see what all we can offer you.  Located in Springfield's central west end, at Monroe and Chatham Road (inside Fair Hills Mall), we are easily accessible from all parts of the city.  We regularly serve color clients from St Louis, Peoria, Bloomington, Decatur, Macomb and points beyond.
