Oscar’s Hair Salon in Northbrook was established in 2013 by Oscar Moreno and Connie Kopecky, which was previously known as the Phillip Anthony Salon. Oscar and Connie have been working at the salon since they were 15 years old, when Oscar’s job was to sweep up hair.
When he turned 17, Phillip Anthony told him he should learn to cut hair. So he took Oscar in, and encouraged him to go to barber school. Oscar attended Barber School in Chicago, and had a chair waiting for him at the salon when he was finished. In 2013, Oscar and Connie took over the salon and renamed it “Oscar’s Hair Salon”.
