I used to be a long time customer. Nearly ten years to be exact, and each and every experience with this business was pleasant until recently. I went in to add copper low lights with Angelica and the end result was fire truck red and blonde highlights!!!! I'm not a color expert, but last time I checked there was a difference between the two shades. I also pointed to the color swatch I liked and provided a picture of their previous work. When I saw the end product, I didn't know how to react. While I stared at the hot mess, Angelica convinced me that after several washes the color would fade to what I wanted. Little did I know, I'd wash my hair and the red would bleed into the blonde making me look like Carrot Top's sister. This was beyond a hot mess! I called and let them know what the situation was and Araceli, the shop manager assured me she would fix it. I went in and again the same stylist took care of me. I asked her to get rid of the red, and so she began. Turns out she just toned it down. Again, not what I asked for. Notice any patterns? Anyways, third is sorta the charm because I was fed up and just wanted it all gone. She covered it with a half effort job because now I have random patches of red, and burgundy over my natural color. As if this wasn't enough, all through out this return visit, Angelica was passive- aggressive. Smiling at me but snickering on the side, and very hard on my head, pulling and tugging at my hair as she "fixed" it. After this experience, it is needless to say that I will not be returning. They have lost several customers since many of my relatives and friends were also clients. Its a true disappointment that there is no professionalism or real responsibility with their work or to their customers. Consumers, beware of the potential wrecks you're paying for at this place.

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 had Michael as my masseuse and he was incredible. I have apparently stored every stressful life event in my shoulders and neck and often can't even feel masseuse's hands because I'm so tight in that area, but Michael had no issue. He got right into my problem areas and not only could I feel it, but at times wanted to cry from relief (ok, and maybe a little from pain, but the good kind of pain!). Each time he found a knot he asked me to tell him if the pressure was too little or too much. In past experience I'm used to saying &amp;amp;amp;quot;push harder&amp;amp;amp;quot;, but he seemed to sense exactly what my body needed. In fact, after a few minutes on my shoulders he asked if he could spend the whole time concentrating on them and my back. I agreed that was what I needed, and so he went to work. At the end of the massage he made suggestions for stretches I could do to loosen up the area, and also suggested getting a heating pad to help the area out. I appreciated that he didn't try to immediately up-sell me for more massages. He made valid suggestions...
To me personally I grade a salon on three things plus some: professionalism, service, and of course atmosphere. 1) The fact that esther does a great job of cutting, texturing my hair, and is quick as most of my old barbers from madison, it is great. 2) The decor of art, cleanliness, and space is something most other salons, at least in the Hyde Park Bronzeville area lacks is space. 3) the professionalism of the receptionsit upon arrival, and when I asked how long the wait is, he was honest about timing and saw an opening and predicted when esther would be done with client and the time she would finish my hair was exactly at 22 minutes. they had time, she was quick but very good and wash was included plus she was interesting to talk to. they never turn customers away without calling them and giving the best time to come back to fit me in. plus, they had foaming cream available at the price of 17 I think. not bad for salon prices. 2nd haircut was better cuz esther knew what I needed. lol
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! :)
"Amazon Salon Inc embodies professionalism with a personal touch. My journey with Nadra began 10 years ago and for me, there is no other natural hair stylist and simply no other natural hair salon. Staffed by only the best and most talented lockticians, Amazon Salon Inc. sets the standard for creating positive images of natural hair styles for natural people. I am often stopped and asked about my locks. It gives me great pride to say that my beautiful locks are a reflection of the culture and creativity that is simply the essence of Amazon Salon Inc." "UnDreadful" Before I knew what I know, my hair had a way of keeping me bound, confined, and confused. When I came into self and began my liberation journey, I arrived at a place where I am free to move; like water. In this new life, my locks, my crowing glory, are the source that enlightens my consciousness, invigorates my spirit, and speaks to the grace that lives inside my soul. Shelytia Cocroft
Well being a black male on the north side of Chicago, it's hard to find a barber that can cut my hair and cut it well. Well this place cuts urban hair. We all know that most of us black men can't go to Super Cuts or places like that, as good as they MAY be, they just don't cut our type of hair. This place does, they do tapers, linings, fades, and have you looking sharp. The atmosphere may not be as booming as a sports related barbershop, and you may not get the barbershop feel because it is a salon as well. But if you need a haircut and you're black, this is a place to go. I went to Ken and he was a cool, friendly guy, who conversates and cuts well. Don't be fooled my white and other race freinds, this is a multi cultural place and they do it all here, so don't think they just cater do Black folks. I just wrote this review to tell all my black men out here looking for a barber, they do cut here and it's not whack!
ABOUT ME: I am a black women with natural kinky hair. my hair has allot of strinkage and Im not sure what type hair I have A, B, or C..LOL... All I know is that it's KINKY and I love it! TESTIMONY: When I went natural a year ago and did my big chop...I became a product JUNKY forreal!!! But after so many trials and errors I came to find out that all you need is the LOC method (Liquid, Oil and Cream). I meet Chatto at Circle of Sisters in NYC in 2014 and boy oooh boy did she know her stuff! I purchased her MOM & DAUGHTER plus ALOE MOISTURE MIST and my hair fell in love! My hair is shiny, SOFT, full of body, and people compliment my hair everytime I step out the door. Dry hair where???????? I wish Chatto had a salon here in NJ:( Ladies... I AM NOT BEING PAID TO WRITE THIS TESTIMONY. Chatto Products are absolutely delicious for your hair:) You should try it!
I am one of those people that cannot stand having short hair, I need the length and I need the volume to function, so I have dealt with everything possible to TRY to maintain the hair that I desire and, I kid you not, I have not been so happy with my extensions in a long time and it is because of Chicago Hair Extensions Salon. I received my hair extensions through Marlene and she knew what she was doing, it was a great experience, and I have recommended her to my friends already. I have been to so many salon's and had to deal with different tech's and it was all horrible experiences but I have been going here for a little over a year now and I am so grateful and happy that I found this salon and have had such talented people make my hair (something I treasure dearly) look more beautiful than I could have imagined.
