Chicago >Salon V
“The staff at Salon V is great; they are professional yet fun.”
“have recommended other people to Salon V and they love it and keep coming back too!”
“The prices are great and its an aveda salon so you really cant go wrong!”
My Now and Forever Waxing Place. I was on the hunt for a new place for eyebrow and bikini waxings... my search has ended!! One of my girlfriends had brought me to Salon V because she highly recommended it as well as another of our friends. I have sensitive skin and experience breakouts and severe redness after waxings I was ready to get laser treatments until I encountered Christina! She does not use strips, and I barely had any redness,a and no breakouts!! She was also super sweet and funny, which helps when you have a stranger waxing down there. I have booked my next appointment and will always come back!!
Best salon in Chicago, hands down.
I have been going to Salon V off and on for the last three years. I have had a few different stylists there and have had different goals each time. They have never failed to give me impeccable results. I took my boyfriend there to have his hair cut by the owner, Veronica (I think that's her name) and he is STILL raving about how awsome his hair looks and how amazing the scalp massage was.... and that was a while ago! I have tried other Lincoln Park salons and not one of them can compare to the service and results I recieve when I go to Salon V. Just today, I got a full highlight by Kacy and a PERFECT cut by David. My hair looks amazing... and the grand total was only $150! I know that might sound like a lot but included in that price was a hand massage, gloss treatment, a blow-dry/style and a make-up touch up. And mind you, I have long hair and she put in no less than 3 colors. If you are trying to decide on a salon, look no further. I love this place so much!
PS. I'm not sure where that picture came from but it looks nothing like the salon. It's on the smaller side, but super cute and very AVEDA.
You can't make some people happy...NO MATTER WHAT!.
Recently (as in today) I was on my normal regiment of heading to the salon for some much needed products. I couldn't help but to hear a little buzz about some events the Salon is hosting...so i jumped on city search to see about happenings and such..... I was so very shocked to read not only a bad comment about salon V, but even more suprised to see it was about my stylist. Well i have been going to see starts with a J, ends with an A and has an U,I, & L in it for years now. She has been an amazing stylist for me and has been a big influence in making me look all around more trendy. Most of all - if you have ever met this stylist- you would know she is anything but ..."no people skills, is lazy, has no charm, and outdated styling/coloring techniques"...i mean just look at HER hair. Sounds like a total diva didn't get the "royal" treatment.
PS- I already prebooked my next three appointments over the next few weeks. Try and get this stylist on a Saturday on short notice - your not going to be very lucky! In my eyes Salon V is still great!!!!!!
she did exactly what i asked her NOT to do. I'm not sure one star is fair for the whole salon. However I will not be going back there after several times since the stylist I was seeing did exactly what I asked her not to do. I told her what I wanted and what I didn't want for color. She was unable to do what I asked for (its a pretty popular look, so any stylist in this price range in a salon trying to portray this image should be able to do it), she claimed that she couldn't go in with bleach. However she did go in bleach, she just did the typical partial foil I asked her NOT to do. I think she didn't know how to do what I asked for. It wouldn't have taken her any longer or been more damaging for her to do what I asked for. Additionally, she took off three inches off the layers when I said I wanted to grow them out. And finally she made the mistake of diffusing my hair, which just makes it frizzy. She didn't ask how I wanted it styled, just diffused it because she thought I would fall for it and she could get me in and out. I know all the tricks because I was a hairstylist for 10 years, and I know why stylist diffuse hair w/out asking. She wasn't running behind either. This girl is never booked on a Saturday, if a stylist is wide open on a Saturday, thats generally not a good sign. All I will say is her name starts with a J, ends with an A and has an U,I, & L in it. I can't really say my hair looks horrible, though its not good hair to razor (which she did), but its exactly what I asked her not to do. So she gets a D- for being lazy and having a sense of entitlement. Personally, I think its her attitude more than anything. No stylist who thinks its all about them is worth seeing twice. At least do a better job faking that you are interested in your client. Maybe she hates her job or something, if thats the case she should just move along and find a different line of work.
WOW - V , is amazing!!!!. Recently was referred to this salon since my stylist moved to NYC. I was amazed at how friendly and down to earth the staff is! Everyone works together and was cracking jokes...i had more than a haircut- it was enetertainment and friendly...i left with a style and a smile. Julio cut my hair and kickeed azz! Found my new place and quick - normally takes me tons of salons when i go on the hunt for a new place! Thank you staff at Salon V - love you all....
Best Salon in Chicago!!. Some friends and I just visited Chicago for the umteenth time and always make a stop at SALON V! Two from Ohio and one from Nashville and again, we were blown away! We started off with manicures, by Lori...by far THE best we have ever had! Than on to facials, with Kristina. Again, it was amazing! My skin has never felt as clean and glowing as it did for days afterward. We also went for Pedicures with Lori. She has strong, yet gentle hands. We are all in heaven! Now for the even better part of our day....color by Veronica, cuts and finish by Meredith and Julio......we all felt incredibly special by the time our day was over. This was due to the way we felt about our experience at Salon V. Not only did they make us feel special...we ALL felt very special ourselves. So much so, that we are coming back to Chicago in May and we are going to do it all again! We cannot recommend Salon V any higher. They were all professional, experienced and catered to all of our needs. You could go in off the street (but I recommend an appointment) and have any one of these professionals do your hair, makeup, skin or any other service they offer and you will be completely satisfied....I guarantee it! If I had to choses one in particular, it would be Meredith...she is amazing! Keep up the terrific work everyone at Salon V...Chicago's Best!!!
wonderful staff, wonderful atmosphere. I get my haircut by David and followed him from another salon. The reception and stying staff are professional and talented. When I had questions about my color, another stylist came over and made recommendations. My cuts always turn out well and also grow out well. I never feel rushed or pressured. I feel like they listen to my concerns about length and styling time and give me a cut that works for me and that I can style myself.
Great cuts & great color with a smile!!.
The staff at Salon V is great; they are professional yet fun. They are serious about their jobs and serious about the customer service they give to their clientelle but they are not uptight and they don't push products.
I've been seeing David and Kacy for going on 2 years (I followed them to Salon V from a pretentious and stuffy salon with an uptight staff). As a blonde, I completely trust Kacy to color my hair the way she feels will most highlight my skintone at the time and the season. She knows what she is doing and is very up-to-date on the newest color trends. When I want to do something drastic with my color, she walks me through it and we discuss it together. She usually encourages me to sleep on it for a few weeks, as opposed to just closing the sale. My stylist, David, is one of the only stylists that gets me. He understands when I tell him I want a "straight-but-wavy" blowout. They are both constantly at Aveda Headquarters learning about new products and new techniques, therefore, they never seem to be stale or burned out on their jobs.
It's also nice that everyone is always smiling and very friendly. And if you want the latest dish on Britney, just ask!
I would highly recommend them!!!
I've never had such a GREAT EXPERIENCE !!.
I never tried to do a review or had the desire too. This is a first for me and it is well do.
The best haircut I've ever had is from the stylist "Teddy" at salon V. He is very good at what he does, very professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks Teddy for a great experience.
Absolutely fabulous!!!. I would highly recommend Salon V! I have been going there for 2 years and I am always happy when I leave. Everyone is so nice, and my stylist (Veronica) is amazing. She?s really works well with you to make you hair vision come true! And if you don?t know what you want to do she is great with giving you suggestions! I have recommended other people to Salon V and they love it and keep coming back too!
