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!
I LOVE Saphire! There's a stylist there who's the only person I've allowed to cut or color my hair since about 2005, and I followed her to Saphire when they opened. When I got married, I sent my husband to her for haircuts, and when we had our first child, she gave him his first haircut (and a few since then!) I get complemented frequently by people who notice my highlights and color when I'm out. I've sent several friends to Saphire who now only have their hair done there. I attempted once to dye my own hair, with embarassing results. She was able to fix my color and add highlights and the result was amazing. A salon you trust can be a difficult thing to find. I'm definitly not one to write reviews but once you find a place that consistantly delivers excellence at this level, anywhere else would be a bit of a disappointment in comparison.
This shop has been in my neighborhood for quite a while, but I started noticing it after the owner has remodeled it. The shop has a very modern feeling. From the color pallet chosen on the walls, to new furnishings and hardwood floors, everything looks new and inviting. The waiting area has a comfortable leather couch and armchairs, but the main attraction is a water fountain that draws pleasantly your attention. The staff is very friendly, the prices are affordable, and most of all occasionally they have walk in availability. The manicure and pedicure area is being remodeled, and also a new massage/spa area will be added this year. I was pleasantly surprised and very happy with the services. I would recommend this to anyone!!!!!!!!!!
I went to the nail salon for a pedicure. I have issues bending down and clipping my own toenails. It wouldn't matter what salon I went to. I can't afford to go to one that often. Yes my toenails were a bit long. The woman who did my toenails was a bit rude. Says why did I wait so long to get them done? Then was asked if I would like a facial that day. Umm No. I can't afford that today. It's half off. No not today. Like they were trying to sell me more services than I came for or wanted. Then After I was done. Went up front to pay. They immediately ask. When do I want to schedule my next appointment. I said I'll call when I want to come back. The woman seemed a bit upset I wouldn't book the next appointment then.
For everyone out there that has put themselves into a defensive mode when it comes to going to a hair salon, let your fears subside and relax. For years I have felt that going to the Salon was a crap shoot, never really knowing what kind of hair style I would get, let alone a good hair cut. I even resorted trying to do it myself and failed miserably of course. My experience at "Salon Dovini" was calming, comfortable and professional. I feel confident in saying; from the receptionist to the owner - Marita "who cut my hair", I felt that they cared about what I wanted from the monent I arrived. I look and feel great. Relax and set-up an appointment. Thank you, Jeri Lynn Stenglein
Julie is absolutely outstanding in her line of work. I have been going to her over 2 years. I get compliments on my cut and color constantly. In matter of fact, my husband and our friends have gone out to dinner and twice I have gotten compliments and 10% discounts on our dinner! Now, if that doesn't make one feel good nothing will. I used to go downtown and pay those high prices. Came to Julie.....she does better than the Downtown Salons! Her prices are reasonable and she is a great gal. Have her give you a cut, color or new "do" she knows what she's doing and you will not be dissappointed. My sons and husband also go to Julie. She's amazing.....
I am very special when is about my hair, I've been everywhere and I always end up unhappy until a friend of mine recommend me to visit d'matrixx, Julieta was my hair dresser, she took her time asking me what I like, want and she recommend styles that I have never tried before, I am very pleased with my new colour, cut and I already booked a new appointment to do my make up and up do for my sisters wedding! I will never go anywhere else now that I find the paradise for my hair!!!! I really recommend everyone that is looking for great style, taste and amazing customer service to visit D'matrixx you won't regret it!!!
If your on a fence and looking for a good salon then look no more. This salon is AMAZING!!!! The stylists are friendly and know what there doing. I don't go anywhere else to get my hair and eyebrow waxing done. They even have a makeup counter you can use complimentary to fix up your makeup or if u feel like putting someone after your new amazing hairdo. Very high-end feeling without the high cost. Also don't be afraid or discouraged to save a little to see a new talent stylist either. They hire people who know what there doing. Plus they get more experience. I always leave there feeling like a million bucks.
