Great Place for a Hair Cut! – Meredith is one of those great hair stylist every woman hopes to find: she can see what she wants to do with your hair before she ever picks up her scissors. The results, as a woman elsewhere in the salon said when Meredith finished taking my hair from mid-back length to above my chin, is "Fabulous." And the cut she gave me is VERY low maintenance--wash it, dry it part way, shape it a bit with fingers and a brush and it is good to go. Get windblown or mashed under a hat--no problem. I can bring it right back with the brush and fingers! Give yourself a treat. Have Meredith cut your hair--and, incidentally, she is also a great colorist.
The best in town – I've been going to Liz for years and she always gets my color and cut right! My hair is very curly and unruly and she's always very patient with it, making it look reeeeaaallly good.I wish she could do my hair everyday =) Recently (June of 2010) I started seeing Ariel. The service was excellent and the prices were great!
Price Gouging – I was gouged on the price of highlights for my very short hair. Meredith did a nice job on color and cut but then charged full cost for 2 colors, toner, re-application of color (I am not clear that this even occured), etc... Owners were not responsive to my concerns that the cost was excessive. I will not recommend salon.
We want to sincerely apologize for this client's discomfort, however, our prices are clearly stated in the front of the salon, as well as the on the front desk. When extra work or extra supply of color is required, we charge accordingly.
If you are concerned about how money you will be spending on a color, we suggest a complimentary consultation in which we can discuss your color as well as give a price quote.
This client was charged only $10 above the minimum posted price for highlights for three color applications, and we offered the 10 dollars back, but this client declined.
Great haircut! – Many thanks to Meridith for a great haircut! Its a comfortable store with easy parking in the back. I wasn't pressured to buy product, but I was given a list of everything they used one me, both of which are really nice.
Chicago Rocks, Shawna is awesome! – Chicago Hair Rocks....I'm done with Lather. Shauna gets an A+ in every Category, she is always very friendly and fun to talk with. I would highly recommend Shauna! Shauna takes the time to do a great job and it shows, I will definitely keep going back :) Thanks for the great cuts Shauna!
got color right the first time – After many dismal experiences with other salons, a friend referred me to Chicago Hair. There I found a soothing and professional atmosphere with friendly staff. I was in need of a color touch-up and braced myself for the 'rusting scalp' outcome that every other salon gave me before getting my color right. My dark brown hair always pulls red, even when using an ash base. I was AMAZED when David got my color perfect with his first attempt. That had never happened before! He also did a fabulous job of cleaning up my cut and recommended some products that really work for my hair type. I highly recommend David and Chicago Hair.
Consistently great haircuts for curly hair – I have very curly, difficult to work with hair. I have been going to Liz for haircuts for about 4 years. She gives me great haircuts-which include a relaxing scalp massage. What I most appreciate about Liz is that she spends a lot of time listening to what worked and didn't work with the last haircut. She has told me she believes you have to be able to be frank about what you want and she walks that talk. I feel very comfortable telling her about changes I want to make. I appreciate the time she takes to do this and feel that this quality is what makes her an exceptional hairstylist.
Makes even the craziest hair look good – I have absolutely unruly and impossible curly hair, which I had been trying at various lengths over the year. I had it cut short about 7 years ago, and it looked awful, so I decided never to do it again. However, having long hair was getting to be a pain and I never had the time or incentive to do anything with it. Grudgingly, I decided to give short hair another try. I went to David at Chicago Hair (although I'm sure anyone there is fantastic). Not only did I get splendid, attentive service and a fabulous head massage, but I was convinced for the first time in my life that short hair can look good on me! I went in with only a few pictures of a haircut that looked vaguely like what I wanted, and explained a little bit what I was going for. 45 minutes later I came out and I had exactly what I wanted! I go to school in Boston, but I'm definitely planning on waiting until the next time I come home to Boulder to get my hair cut again.
Laura the hair guru – I have been getting my hair done at Chicago Hair now for 3 years and have never been disappointed. They are always welcoming and friendly, not to mention very professional. The salon is a beautiful, clean, comfortable place to get pampered.
Laura Prescott is an excellent stylist. She always has helpful suggestions to make you look your best. When I cut off all my hair, she helped me choose a style that was hip and specific to what would work best with my face and style. She is very nice and great to be around. I will never go anywhere else and already have everyone I know seeing her.
I highly recommend Chicago Hair. You won't be disappointed!
SO RELAXING – I just got my hair cut the other day at Chicago Hair and I'm SO happy with it. I'd been to other salons (Zing and Fix) and wasn't happy with my cut or color and didn't really like the atmosphere--too loud and too crazy. When I walked into Chicago Hair, it was immdiately different...the receptionist was really friendly and offered me a hot cup of tea and went to get the stylist right away. The salon is really cute and you just feel really relaxed as soon as you walk in the door.
Laura was my stylist. She actually talked to me about what I wanted and really made sure that I was going to get what I aked for. The color is PERFECT and the cut is the most flattering cut I've had in forever!! I'm so happy with it : ) She talked me out of really choppy layers and instead gave me softer layers and some longish bangs and I LOVE IT! I also got some of their shampoo (Bumble&bumble) and it SMELLS SO GOOD!
Overall, it was an AWESOME EXPERIENCE. Everyone who worked there was so friendly and I loved the salon! I even referred my boyfriend in there and he got a great haircut, which doesn't happen often : ) Check them out-- you'll be really happy you did!
