I love the atmosphere that Yahya Salon has. It was well lighted clean, colorful as well as very polite stylists that work there. I had a Thursday appointment at 10a to get a full sew in. The beautician advised me to bring my own hair weave, & so I did. First she washed my hair, that's when she informed me that I had dry hair& scalp. This wasn't new news to me cause I have always had dandruff but my old stylist said there was nothing she could do about it. The beautician at Yahya Salon said she had a deep condition treatment that would help the dryness of my hair &scalp, so I gave her permission to do any & everything that would help my hair. I must say after a couple of deep conditioning treatment my dandruff is much betta. My hair style was awesome, she made me look like a picture from out of a magazine. From the looks of how I walking in to how I looked when I walked out, looked like I paid a million dollars for my hair, but her prices were very reasonable... I will let Yahya Salon service me again & I also made my family & friends knowledgeable of 1 of the best Salons in Chicago.
Ridiculously nice people. After going once, Sam and Lynn (his right-hand gal) will remember your name, the service you received last time, and how you were feeling. That's awesome (and rare) up here in Albany Park. Lynn gives stellar manis and pedis (as do the other girls who come and go- but ask for Lynn if you have a choice!) and Sam's the hair guy. You'll be offered water, tea, or- on occasion- whatever cookies and treats someone has dropped off for them. (Always accept. I've never regretted trying something new and delicious.) So why only four outta five stars? Because while the prices are unreal affordable and the service is lovely, it's not always the fanciest haircut for a girl. (For a guy- absolutely. My husband always looks awesome after coming home from here.) Cuts for a woman are *very* basic and just fine. But again, you can't beat the prices and people. Their massage chairs are also top notch. Sometimes I stay a little longer and hog one of their chairs. Bonus- Sam and Lynn are so polite that they've never told me to perhaps give the chair to a waiting client. I like that.
I love Carmelo at Restoration at the Clark location in Chicago, IL. I have been going in a consistant basis to Restoration and Carmelo is the only stylist that I would trust with any suggestion and my hair. Carmelo will never make you look dumb or horrible. I am very visible to the public, my appearnace is foremost important. Years of service I have received at a regular basis at Restoration and my many dates, photo shoots, work events and even galas I get all sorts of compliments because of Carmelo. I have swept the crowd with the amazing ways he works wonders with my hair. Every single time my pictures are at display the amount of great comments are proof of Carmelo's miracle and artistic hands. Carmelo makes look like a movie star! Like I told Carmelo, I never trust my hair to just anyone. Since I moved, I even travel to see him...and now even my daugther is getting her hair done. I love Carmelo for always being honest and bringing my dull hair to life. Thank you Carmelo! :)
