C'zar Salon Spa owners Gina Rutz-Sowa (Wheaton), Debbie Nachreiner, and Evonne Rutz.

Meet the Owners

In 1983, a pregnant Debbie Nachreiner & her husband, Rob, began the build-out of C’zar Hair Design & Day Spa in the quaint riverfront neighborhood of Naperville, IL. It was a 5-chair boutique salon positioned on the second floor of a vintage walk-up studio. Meanwhile, Evonne Rutz had been working as a licensed cosmetologist and barber in both Illinois and in Northern California for several years. At their first meeting, Debbie and Evonne became the best of friends and seemed to be kindred spirits. They often joke their souls have been connected in a past life together. The two became official business partners in 1988 and have blended their families and careers successfully since. Fast forward to today, over 30 years later, and see that they’ve grown that 5-chair studio to multiple locations with over 60 employees and new business partners including Gina Rutz-Sowa of C’zar Wheaton and Eric Sowa of C’zar Male. They credit their success to employing only NICE people who are humble and driven to creating excellence in their work. As C’zar continues to grow long into the future, their priority will continue to be always looking to improve the guest experience by making them feel welcome and valued.
