Editorial review from Citysearch 10/4/2014

Best haircut and color! I recently visited Linda and felt like she rolled out the red carpet. Her co-workers are so friendly and I received great hospitality from them the moment I walked through the door. I left with the best hair cut I have had in years and the color is fantastic. Linda's expertise in applying color gave my hair new life and the quality of the product left my hair soft and manageable. I recommend Linda and her salon for quality hair color, hair cuts, relaxing environment and service!! more

Best Hair Color I've Ever Had! 11/13/2011

I was given Linda's name as a superb person for hair color, and I went to my appointment at Blade yesterday. I went in with an unhealthy-looking drab shade of dark brown/red in my hair, and I wanted something brighter that would lighten up my look. Every salon I've gone to in the past has told me that they can't change my look because the color is too dark - and that they'd have to spend 5 to 6 hours lifting all the color from my hair, in order to then go in with a lighter shade. Linda at Blade looked at my hair situation and came up with a winning solution that far exceeded my expectations. She absolutely transformed my look and gave me the hair I was dreaming of! I left with a lustrous warm brown plus super-cool swaths of ginger ""ombre"" lowlights. As an aside, I asked Linda about fixing the bad haircut that I got elsewhere, and she had amazing ideas ranging from subtle changes to a whole new style. I booked a hair cut with her for a couple weeks from now. Hands down. Linda is the best person I've ever gone to for color. She really knows what she's doing, uses high-quality products, and is the consumate artist and professional. I can't wait to see what she does with a cut! more

New Location...Same Great Hair! 8/30/2011

I had to write an updated review after I went to see Linda for a ""back to school"" style change and once again she rocked it! My new copper locks and edgy pixie is just what I needed! I just let her go and once again I am totally thrilled with my new look. The new salon locatin is great and love, love, love the new decor! more

Trust Linda with your hair 2/11/2011

I've been going to Linda at Blade (and several of her previous salons) for about 10 years and am never disappointed. Linda is a creative professional and a genius with color. The cuts are always great and I leave the salon with fabulous hair. Blade is comfortable, immaculate and welcoming and is easy to get to by car or train. Highly recommended! more

Elgin is the best hair stylist in Chicago 12/12/2010

Very comfortable but clean and artistic atmosphere. I am a straight guy and Elgin is the best hair dresser I've had and I have lived in many places. They are a reasonable price and are very flexible with ideas. Last time i went in I just let Elgin choose a look with a few specifications i said and i turn out wonderful. Check this place out its in a good neighborhood and request Elgin more

Linda's Blade is Fabulous! 11/4/2010

I have been going to Linda for more years than I can count. Every time I walk out I feel fabulous, my color is amazing and the cut is great from the moment I leave until I get back there (but she always says ""Well, just let me clean it up!). Over the years she has gently guided me in color and cut so I look contemporary and stylish. And it's not just that she is extremely competent. Blade is comfortable and all the staff is friendly and positive. I love going there. more

Linda at Blade is the Best! 10/28/2010

I have gone to Linda for many years and would be lost without her now. She does the best color and cut. I like the fact that she changes the style from time to time to keep me in a current fashion. I never knew I could do so many different things with my hair. Her shop, Blade, is in a convenient Lakeview neighborhood and is always friendly and comfortable. more

Always Happy with my Hair!!!!! 10/28/2010

I've been going to Linda at Blade for my cuts and color for a long time now, and I have always left Happy. The shop is fun and comfortable so, it is a good time getting your hair done there. Linda has a great personality and she is really, really good at what she does. I pretty much let Linda do her thing with little instruction on what I want and I am always very pleased with the results. I get many compliments on my hair since I've been going to Linda which, as we all know is very flattering. I highly recommend you go to Blade. more

Go to Linda at Blade on Ashland 10/27/2010

I've been going to Linda for 14 years, and I always leave happy. My haircuts and color bring compliments from friends and family. Blade is a warm place, and Linda is a total professional. I couldn't recommend her services more highly. more

Always love my hair! 10/27/2010

I have gone to Linda for years and have never been disappointed! She is a perfectionist and I fully trust her with decisions on styles and colors. I always receive compliments on my hair and I have to tell people, ""it's not because of me, it's Linda"". Everyone at Blade is friendly and professional! more

Great Hair!! 10/26/2010

If you want great hair, call Linda Licocci!! She rocks the cut, color and styling. It also grows out well before your next cut. more

I continue to adore my designer. 10/26/2010

I admired my friend's hair cut when I moved to the area 15 years ago and that got me hooked on Linda Licocci. Blade is Linda's creation and she runs it like she cuts and colors - it's a friendly, professional, stylish haven from my hectic schedule. The products are great and she is up on the latest organics and hypo-allergenics. I came for the great cuts, now I need color, a cut and a little instruction on managing my more mature hair. Linda is still the expert. My friends still rave about my hair. more

You know a great cut and color! 10/25/2010

At this point in our lives, we know a great cut and color. When you have a great cut and color everyone compliments you, and your hair looks great everyday! That's what Linda at Blade can do. Been a client for years and would never let anyone else touch my hair. Friendly, great products, and always a new suggestion for style-- she and Blade are the BEST! more

Blade tops my list! 10/25/2010

When I found Blade on Citysearch a few years ago, I found everything I was looking for. My objective was to find an experienced stylist that did her own color. I've never been a fan of having someone cut my hair and another color it. I believe it needs to be a single of a talented artist that isn't afraid to take risks. I found exactly that in Linda Licocci.\r \r She runs her shop with a lot of love & care and it shows. It's a friendly, spotless salon with great magazines, excellent music and a good cup of tea. I am always receiving compliments on my hair from both friends & strangers alike. You won't be disappointed with Linda or Blade. more

Blade is awesome! 10/25/2010

Blade is the best! I love Elgin and don't want to share her with anyone! ;) She's super skilled and always does exactly what I want. She's helped me deal with some crazy curly hair and given me amazing cuts and color. The place is hip and laid back, while still super professional in their training and approach. more

Super, super! 10/22/2010

I love Blade. I dicovered Linda and her salon last year moving in Chicago. I tried other salon before who just f.. up my hair.\r I will never go back somewhere else than blade!\r more

Blade Is the Best Salon 10/20/2010

Blade is a great salon! I've been going to Linda for yeas. I love the cut, color (I call it a hair adjustment), styling and personal attention. Linda carries wonderful hair and skin products. I've had the Keratin treatment twice to relax my unruly curls and am thrilled with the results. It makes getting ready so much easier on rushed mornings. I highly recommend Linda or anyone at Blade. more

Outstanding Hair Cuts and Colors 12/2/2009

Linda has been my stylist for over ten years. I have very thick hair and with her precision cuts, she always creates a masterpiece. I am a working professional and I have a one year old daughter at home. So needless to say, I need a sophisticated cut that I can turn around and recreate in a short amount of time. Linda is the best stylist in the city and I highly recommend her salon. Pros: excellent cuts & colors, flexible hours, convenient location more

Absolutely Fabulous! 12/2/2009

A friend of mine referred me to Linda at Blade, and I am so glad that she did. As a busy professional, not only do I have to look good, but I do not have the time to spend searching for the right hair stylist. I can safely say that I have accomplished both. Linda is obviously a very seasoned and skilled hair stylist and colorist. But what impressed me was how she listenend to what I wanted, while still giving me a modern look that I have never been able to achieve with any other hair stylist. I can't even count the multitude of compliments that I have received, even from perfect strangers.\r I highly recommend Linda and Blade. The salon itself is a very comfortable and friendly atmosphere. I'm already looking forward to my next appointment. Pros: Excellent service, skilled & knowledgeable, great atmosphere more

Awesome hair cuts 11/30/2009

I've got very curly hair and in the past that has meant dowdy looking cuts from stylists that did not know how to give my head of hair a cutting-edge look. That has changed now that I've found Linda. Finally, I have a cut that is very stylish and very current. Linda takes her time and makes sure your hair is perfect before you leave. You'll love her. I've heard great things about the other stylists working for her as well. You've got to try Blade! Pros: The stylists are perfectionists. more
