All stylists are great and the owners--Steve & Colette--are super-talented, attentive and honest businesspeople. I've been going to both of them for several years now. Their knack for helping select the right color, even when I can't effectively explain what I'm looking for, is always on the mark. And they won't try to sell you on something just to make a buck. For example, I was headed out on vacation and definitely due for a complete color. But Colette recommended that I NOT spend the money before I headed to the beach because it would bleach out with all the sun--and instead touched up my roots beautifully, holding me over for a few weeks until after I returned. Steve does an awesome job as well. He's a certified trainer and he leads classes in color/styling for new and experienced stylists throughout the Midwest. You are in good hands at Studio 524, that's for sure. As other posters have mentioned, it's also nice that the salon is located in Old Town St. Charles. I live in the area but travel frequently for work, so it's always nice to have a reason to visit a special part of my community that I don't get to visit that often.
