I heard about Phoenix Hair Studio from my friend Sandra. It was the first Tuesday of the month and that meant PTA meeting night. I already had my outfit picked out; a sleek fitted black suit jacket and a pencil skirt to match. The imminent barrage of mom jeans and overdone makeup would be no match. Still- something was missing. As I peered in the mirror to model my new outfit it hit me. My hair was a mess! Something had to be done to this misshapen mop or all would be for naught. Where would I go and who could fit me in on such short notice? I suddenly remembered how gorgeous Sandra’s hair looked at our last MADD (mothers against drunk driving) meeting, and the name stuck out in my mind –Phoenix Hair Studio. I phoned right away and sure enough there was an opening. I was still a little leery though. I have to admit I’m quite picky when it comes to my hair- to put it nicely. When I arrived at the salon I was immediately impressed with the clean, open, and friendly atmosphere. Everything ran like clockwork from the beginning. Andrea Maleu was my stylist and a master in her own right. She took me in and really listened like she had known me for years. I had a picture of my finished style, but it was sub par compared to the vision Andrea suggested. We decided on a style that would be practical and impress, and Andrea made suggestions about what would look age appropriate and seasonal. This was my first salon experience I’d actually enjoyed, and my cut and color look fantastic. Phoenix Hair Studio was professional, affordable, and I would recommend Andrea’s hair genius to anyone and everyone!
Salon Nova provides the best service in the country. I know it is a bold statement, but I travel all over the United States and have lived in downtown Chicago Magnificent Mile Area for 10 years. I am so satisfied with not only the beautiful lashes Nova has created for me, but with the way I am treated by all of the talented professionals at this salon. Nova owns the salon (obviously) and there is definitely pride in ownership. This industrious young man and his staff provide a myriad of luxury services. Among the products and services he provides, my favorites are his lash products that he patented himself and Michael’s Keratin treatment. The salon itself is just like Nova, stylish and calm. Even though he is extremely busy, he has somehow managed to avoid the horrible noisy bustle that other high profile salons can not seem to avoid. I am in the aesthetic industry and have the privilege of seeing many beautifying treatments from all over the country. Working for a plastic surgeon for 15 years has given me insight as to what beauty is and what natural looks like. In other words, I have opportunity to go anywhere and I know my stuff! I choose Nova for his natural looking results. I am constantly asked how I got my lashes to grow like this. They are always surprised to find that they are extensions and immediately want Nova’s contact information. One word of warning though, always have breath mints because people get close trying to figure out if your lashes are real or not.
I walked in a flaming hot mess, my hair was falling out in patches from medication that i was taking and i thought that the one man that i though loved me was looking at other women because of their beauty(i.e. hair, nails, etc) so on the way home i saw this hair salon and i stopped in just to get a new hair do but boy was i mistaken. My beautician name was Johnisha and she told me not to worry about it and then she began telling me about scalp treatments and conditioners as she was working her magic on my hair and ladies let me tell you its been almost a year ago today and i not only have my natural hair back but it is even longer than i ever expected it to be. As far as the man in my life, well lets just say that if he was thinking about doing something the new me changed his mind cuz girls, this lady whips my hair up. So if you want to look as good as you feel, you need to go to True Identity because it is more than just a name it will start your claim to fame and you will walk out a true Deva because after all that is our True Identity. You GO GIRL!
