Love this salon mainly b/c of Bonnie! She's best stylist I've ever had- she is so talented- not only is she amazing at hair she has such a fun personality! And she really listens to what kind of cut you want which I've found has been hard to find in the past plus she is great at suggestions if I want a little change! I recieve so many compliments and never have I loved my hair more than I do at this stage! HIGHLY recommend- ask for Bonnie ,you'll love your hair!!

I've been going there for 5-6 years and have found all the stylists and colorists to be extremely talented. If I do have a problem, I just discuss it and they listen and it's fixed. I am extremely happy and would never switch. As a bonus they have great parking, too! Everyone is professional and well trained.

I found Marianne Strokirk almost 8 years ago. She found the great hair style for me. This is the reason why I am still Marianne Strokirk's very happy client. I am very pleased with the service and the professionalism in this salon. I also like the location.

I've been getting my haircut at Strokirk Salons for many (15 maybe?) years. From the moment you walk in the door, everyone is thoughtful, helpful and happy. I schedule my appointments in the city around my haircut times now that my office is in the suburbs, and I still make time to see Sandi and get the best haricut in the world! It is a five star salon in every measure. As a man, I don't feel awkward walking into a salon run mostly by women--the whole atmosphere makes me feel very comfortable and included.

I have been going to this salon for over 10 years. I accidently found it through a friend who gave me a gift certificate, and what a great gift it's been. It is an upscale salon with a relaxed and comfortable environment. There is none of the ""attitude"" that often accompanies a salon of this caliber. In my opinion, my hair stylist Marne is ideal; her hair cuts are consistently terrific, she is truly an artist. With very few exceptions I love the cuts she gives me - I like to experiment with new hairstyles. The few times I've not been totally satisfied, she has been happy to re-style it until I was. She is friendly, fun and engaging BUT taking my lead, (without ever having to tell her) is non-intrusive and quiet if I'm not in the mood to chat. I recently began going to John for my highlights. He does an excellent job. I told him the last time he did them, that it was the best highlite job I've ever had - and I've been getting highlites for over 25 years. As well the reception area is well-managed and people there are nice and friendly.

In all the years of getting my haircut, Kristen is the first stylist who I've wanted to go back to! Now, I don't want to go anywhere else. The whole staff is incredibly friendly and professional, and it's actually important to them that your hair looks like you want it to. Kristen cuts my hair dry, styles it with products and tools I have, and does everything possible to make it an easy cut to maintain. Even the student colorists/stylists who do workshops for 20$ are fantastic! I would definetly recommend this salon to anyone and I bet you won't be disappointed if you try it.
For the past three years, I've treked in from the 'burbs every 5-6 weeks for two reasons: Janelle & Margaret . Janelle is always willing to try a new style, offers great suggestions and keeps me from doing anything rash. My brassy reddish hair was banished thanks to Margaret's color expertise . Their Oak street setting is sophisticated without being stuffy. The front desk staff is top notch -- organized, friendly and attentive.
Marianne Strokirk is a wonderful salon. Their styles (cuts and colors) are classic and elegant, without being staid or old-fashioned. The staff are professional and friendly, and the salon is comfortable and inviting. I've seen several stylists over the years and each has been wonderful and responsive while also making great suggestions.

I've been traveling 3 1/2 hours every six to eight weeks to have my haircut at this salon for the past 10 years. I've always enjoyed my experience with the staff and have had great cuts by both Chris (for 2 years) and Jeffrey for the last 8 years. Alex keeps the reception desk and the rest of the salon moving efficiently while being gracious to clients coming and going. She's done a great job of teaching the other receptionists the fine art of multi-tasking. Jeffrey is a true artist and knows how to perfectly frame each person's face with a superb haircut! I have had people stop me in shops and on the street to ask me where I get my hair cut. It's a compliment to me but even more so to my stylist! I've referred lots of women in Chicago, in my home town, and even on trips to other cities around the world to Marianne Strokirk Salon on Oak Street.
