Meet the Team
aka Bliss Bob
I am a well-known Hair Stylist working in the North shore suburbs of Chicago. Over the past 60 years, I have been styling hair for many well-known Chicago people that live in the city and throughout many of the suburbs. I also have a passion for drawing faces.
I attended The American Academy of Art many years ago which lead to drawing portraits of clients and friends in charcoal pencil. Throughout the many years of my practice, I also found a special interest in storytelling. Growing up in marginal neighborhoods, I have fascinating and diverse stories about the many people and areas of the city (many even before we had air conditioning).
I've told these stories in places like The Second City and am in the process of putting together a book of more than 80 stories about interesting Chicago neighborhoods and the people that live and work there. My web site features my work and allows you to purchase a charcoal pencil portrait drawing of yourself or a dear friend or loved one.
