I've had Odisho extensions at 2 different salons, it's the only brand I tried so far. I stopped going to the first salon thinking it was their fault and went to Exsalonce. First experience there was fine. 2nd experience was absolutely terrible. i got my last extensions put in in mid November. i have very dry, thick hair. i use extensions for brighter, fresher blond and healthier lengths. i've been getting extensions since 2013. Everytime my stylist could not believe how long they lasted (6-8 months). The reason is that i use dry shampoo, wash my hair hardly every 3 weeks, take very good care of them and i have thick, dry hair. So i hardly start losing a strand or 2 after about 3-4 months. What changed this time ? Upon my last apptmt, i called Jamie @ Exsalonce about 3 times asking when i could come in after my keratin treatment. i personally was worried but she asked Jessie and told me it would be perfectly ok if i came in 5-7 days after keratin. i double and triple checked and she said it's totally fine. i still had keratin treatment done 7 days ahead just to be on the safe side. That was the first time i had it done this close to the extension apptmt. But they DID SAY it's ok if it's 5-7 days. Now, mid january, i started losing about 1 strand every 48 hours, then 1 everyday. it's heartbreaking. I paid a huge amount of $. In fact, at Exsalonce they apply the keratin bonds flat, not in cylinders, supposedly so that they don't bother us when we lay down. Wrong. Everytime i touch my hair, the bonds feel like needles. Furthermore, i noticed from the falling strands that there is not much hair stuck in them. They're just slipping out. Is it the keratin treatment that they told me I could do ? Was it the actual extensions ?? So as u may have noticed, the one thing in common in all my extension experiences: they were all Odisho. I am v. upset about this, especially given the cost. I will not b using Odisho ext. anymore, both salons have proven that the hair quality is inconsistent.

You would have to go around the world twice and back and you most likely would not find a better barber or stylist. Sherece was nothing less than exceptional - professional, kind, engaging, and attentive. Her brother Jim is a great guy too. I am sure his service is the same. From the two customers in front of me you could readily tell that it was going to be a great experience. I like my hair short, neat, professional and nice looking. You get that and more with a smile and a good price. I have been in Chicago just over a year and bouncing from barber to barber. No more bouncing for me. This will always be my first and last stop.
I searched the Internet everywhere until I found the place in my home town. I called Bijou n made my appointment, she was very polite n friendly on the phone as well as in person. I arrived at my set time n we got started right away. I chose the Tree Braids n she did an awesome job. I really love my hair. Her other attendants were just as professional n friendly. Her shop was neat n clean. I will by all means be returning to her next time! Thank you Bijou you are fantastic!!! She gets 5 stars from me!!!!!!

I went to XEX Hair Salon for the first time yesterday for a cut and color. I heard so many great things about this salon from my co workers I decided to give it a try. I was treated so well! From the moment I walked in I was offered a beverage, the music was upbeat. It smelled like flowers (Aveda)! My hair was cut and colored by Barbara and she is now stuck with me. My color is perfect and my cut seems seamless! I am very happy with my experience!
I brought my daughter in for cornrows about 9-9:30am. They didn't start until an hour later as they had 3 others in for micros. I came back at 12:30 and she was ready to go. I paid a total of $60. The hair looked very neat although my daughter said the front and back of her head was braided uncomfortably tight. The micros in progress looked great. I would go back but will specify not to braid so tightly.
I absolutely love Mai's African Braiding shop and I adore Felicia!! She's been doing my hair for about 7yrs and each time I've love my style! When I'm out in public people stop and ask me who does my hair! It's always neat and my hair holds a beautiful shine the entire time it's in my head!! Go check out Mai's African Braid Shop located 1944 E. 73rd street "New Location" you want be disappointed!!
This place is awesome! Mostly catered to male audience by Octavio ("Tavo") and Raymundo, however I also seen females been served by Millie. Fantastic quality hair cuts and barber services for adults and freshly new styles for kids and young guys. Highly recommended!!! Top notch detailed services in a friendly environment. Low prices high quality...sounds like a wining strategy!
I just moved back to Chicago after 24 years and was looking for a place to get my hair braided. I called a few places and they seemed so unprofessional. I called Kena and was very satisfied with the conversation and knew I wanted her to braid my hair. I got micros and was not disappointed at all. I will be going back and will recommend any who asks about my braids to Kena.
I have been going to XEX for 3 years now and I have never been happier with my hair. TJ is the ONLY person I will let cut my hair! The Salon is up beat, beautifully decorated with the glass they sell, smells great, your treated so well from the moment you walk in the door. I highly recommend this salon as you wont be disappointed!
