I came to Chicago not knowing many people and not having a place to get my hair cut (which I desperatly needed). After reading some reviews online J Andrews Salon sounded pretty good... I figured if I didn't like it my hair would grow out and I could go somewhere else. I had no idea how much I would love the salon. Everyone was very friendly and asked me if I would like a drink as soon as I came in. Nicole cut my hair and she was amazing. Most hair stylists will do what you ask and it will be somewhat close. Nicole did exactly what I wanted, except better! In the seven months that I lived in Chicago I had Nicole cut my hair three times... I usually get it cut every 6 months! I didn't know what to do after leaving Chicago because Nicole and J Andrews was so amazing... so, now I just make a trip back to Chicago when I can. Nicole is a sweetheart and your haircut will be better than you could have expected.
Nic has worked with my curly hair for years. First it was highlights and cut and now that I love my grey hair, it is easy to keep haircuts.
His wife, Kim, does the most gentle facials ever. If you have sensitive skin she treats you very carefully and yet keeps your eyebrows perfect and all blemishes are gone.
This dynamic couple run a wonderful shop where the other stylists that work are also great and the people walk out of J Andrews looking like a million bucks! They keep up with trends and you won't look dowdy when you leave.
I have been coming here for over 10 years through many hair phases and Nick has been my guru in hair exploration, consulting and helping me work out my preferences along the way. I feel like I am in expert hands when it comes to color, since he teaches this. And I appreciate the opportunity to have all my facial needs met as well with equal expertise by Kim. I can't imagine a better salon experience!
Nic does a great job highlighting my hair and his cuts are second to none. Kim's facial with energy healing is wonderful; it's a unique experience. The salon in general is well-designed, tastefully decorated - including the rotating original artwork - and staffed with warm, genial people. I've tried a lot of places for alot of services but I always come back here!
Nic and team are by far the best in the business. Wonderful people, amazing color and cut and all performed on time, with a smile, great conversation and in a fun and funky atmosphere.
I left Chicag over a year ago and travel back to Chicago every 8 weeks for Nic and team. They are AWESOME!

J. andrews can accommodate anyone. Im a woman of color in my early 20's and im super particular about my hair . I left j.andrews salon feeling great about my hair. I saw nicole ( who is a total sweetheart) . she did a great relaxer , haircut and blowout. my hair was smooth shiny and bouncy , and not weighed down with product ( a practice most salons get into the habit of doing with ethnic hair)and the haircut was exactly what i asked for ( coco chanel if she were the lead singer of a punk band :). she recommended great products for me and made sure to help me come up with a plan of attack for growing my hair out . i see her regularly for trims and blowouts and cant wait to see what she can do with my color!!
