Great hair dresser. So i just moved from New York last July, and as all of us ladies know it is like finding a needle in a hay stack when it comes to finding the a good hair dresser let alone someone who you love.it took me 4 months and multiple bad experiences here in chicago to find the perfect hair dresser... Pamela at Brilli Salon! Not only was she wonderful to talk to and hang out with but she did a fantastic job with my color and cut.. she made sure she accomplished my view. She is such a sweet, bubbly person and i look forward to going there because i have no worries about my hair and i know i'm going to have a good time. She is someone to go and she.. especially when your hair gets blotched by another hair dresser.. Thank you Pamela!
It is Unfortunate. It is unfortunate that an insecure Salon Owner from a certain tasteless wicker park Salon would write such a false and unfounded review about a past employee just because she feels the need to burn others. Also, if anyone has ever been to this salon, they can tell you that every single individual that works in this Salon, knows the meaning of great service and understand the value of respect, trust and honesty. Again, i find it sad and pitiful that this certain Salon owner would subject someone to false reviews just to make themselves feel better for their own mistakes!!!!! LAME!!!!
Great service! Parking! Well priced!. I followed my stylist to Brilli and was pleased to find a clean, professional, plesantly staffed salon with good ambiance and a great product line. Sanjoy worked wonders with my hair color and I enjoyed my salon time without blaring music or staff drama to contend with. The beautiful jewlery on sale sealed the deal- I'm looking forward to my next visit!
I had my first experience after reading the ads..I unfortunetely had a really bad haircut by a newer stylist at this salon. To my surprise this man obviously doesn't care what reputation he leaves this salon with as I heard he is opening his own salon in the near future. I just wish it wasn't taken out on my head!!!
I found the staff to be pushy, snotty and rude and I would not go back. Maybe they have too many of their personal friends writing in because I don't see how this salon can be the same one I have been reading about!
Save your money, save your hair and keep looking!!!
Love Love Love my new color!. Pamela worked miracles on my hair, I am in love with my new color and highlights! I went in for a color correction, and she not only saved my hair but also made it look better then ever..... couldn't recommend her enough.
Favorite Chicago salon...And I've tried PLENTY!.
I found Brilli on a Daily Candy posting for a curling iron class they were offering. I had been going to another Chicago salon for years but I went to the class, learned some fun curl techniques, and met Pamela. I have had blonde hair my entire life and was really wanting to "go dark," but didn't have the guts! She encouraged me to give it a try, and I booked my appointment. That was nearly 2 years ago! I LOVE Pamela. Of all the colorists at all the chic Chicago salons I've ever been to, NOBODY has ever given me exactly what I wanted, every single time. She is amazing with color...I always try new things and every time I bring a picture, I walk out looking exactly like I hoped I would. No surprises!
I also have regular spray tans at Brilli. I will NEVER go into a Mystic booth again!! Sarah does a FLAWLESS, streak free application with an airbrush. Its pricier than a booth tan, but well worth the money. No streaks, orange appearance, or awkward spots on knees and feet.
The staff are all wonderful...it feels like a trendy, chic version of the place in Steel Magnolias! Everyone is so nice and knows your name. I truly look forward to catching up with the girls every 8 weeks and know that I'll always leave happy!
Great salon with talented stylists. I found this salon through craigslist, in an ad they had for hair models. I saw one for a bob, which was the cut I had been wanting to get, and found out that I could get that cut for free by an apprentice stylist and get all-over color for a product charge of $25. Now, for starters, I've had long hair for about 2 years, to about the middle of my back, but I've been dying to get a cute, stylish cut for some time. Seeing as how I'm a graduate student though, I don't quite have the money for a trendy salon and a good cut. This worked out wonderfully to my advantage because my stylist, Jag, was awesome (she'd graduated from the Aveda Institute and had been training at the salon for about a year). My cut, which was done by Jag and supervised by Brenda, turned out beautiful and I have been receiving compliments since I got it done. The only downside to my experience was perhaps the fact that the color I was having done (red) didn't quite turn out as bright as I had wanted, but I still like it. The salon has a definite 'feel' to it that does resemble a style lounge...I especially like the little room where you sit under the heat for your color, very neat! So, while I probably could not afford to come here if I was not a hair model, I think it's a great salon with talented and caring stylists who will do their best to make your hair how you want it. :)
Best Experience EVER. I recently moved to the city and was searching for a good salon I THANKFULLY found Sarah at Brilli...she did an AMAZING job with my hair. I got a cut and color and she did a fabulous job with my highlights. She really listened to what I wanted. I have never been so happy leaving a salon. I would recommend her to anyone! She made the whole experience great and made me look amazing!!
Brilli Salon (Pamela) to the rescue!. I ended up crying in the entrance to Brilli salon after a terrible cut and color at Milio's on Belmont. I just happened to be passing by on my way home, and thankfully, Pamela made time to help me out. Little did I know, Pamela would turn out to be the best stylist I think I've ever had. I felt so welcome there, and while Pamela gave me a new cut, the other girls in the salon all sat with me and seemed to be on a mission to make me feel better - they are all so sweet at Brilli. The great thing about Pamela, is that she is CREATIVE and is INSPIRED by your hair - so she has IDEAS, in case you don't. I think Pamela is extremely talented. That night, she gave me a whole new cut, which was amazing. I just went back to get some highlights that she thought would look really great, and of course, they do! I highly recommend Brilli salon. And I am really thankful I finally found an amazing stylist.
