After being under the weather for a few days, I went out Saturday afternoon to run some errands and got a haircut at Lake Salon in McHenry (under Black Bear Tavern). It was the first time I was in there and it has a very nice atmosphere and Jennifer the cosmetologist did a nice job on my hair and all were friendly. I’ll be back.
