Best Hairdresser this side of the atlantic 10/20/2011

I moved to Chicago from London about 6 years ago and after 5 years of trying various hairdressers across the city I found Emmett. He's amazing! I love his eye for colour and he always gives a good cut. I trust him completely, so much so that when he asks me at the beginning of an appointment what I'd like to do next- I just say, you're the pro what would you recommend and we talk through it. I've never been disappointed. more


Emmett has given me the look I always wanted but he does it with an edge and his talented hands. I enjoy asking him for styling tips and suggestions on makeup as well. Pros: FLEXIBLE, HONEST more

My search is finally over! 6/12/2010

After many years of disappointing hair cuts, I finally found the right guy. The man has an incredible talent of knowing exactly what you need. Kind, caring, extremely professional and funny, a really good soul. Pros: UNBELIEVABLE CUT more

Emmett Hodge 6/11/2010

Emmett is an incredible stylist with an eye for color and cut! I personally have fine hair which is extremely hard to cut- Emmett was determined to give me long hair. His creative cuts while working through the growing out stage got us to our goal. Before each appointment he starts with a consultation, he always asks what I am looking for ensuring I will be happy. His creative eye and attention to detail is always 100%.Emmet is someone who cares about you beyond your time in his chair. I highly recommend you book an appointment you will not be disappointed. Pros: GREAT CUT & COLOR more

Hairstylist Extraordinaire 4/19/2010

If you need a magician with shears, Emmett Hodge is the guy! My widow-peaked, graying dirty-blonde hair challenges even the most talented professional. However, time and time again, I can always count on Emmett to perform minor surgery and major miracles on my locks. He really listens to what I want and suggests creative possibilities. He knows his stuff! The added perk to Emmett?s great haircuts and coloring is his engaging conversation. Emmett makes me laugh and think in new ways. He?s funny, sensitive and an extraordinary hair stylist. Pros: Great cut, color and conversation! more

When Only the Best Will Do... 1/4/2010

Emmett is an incredibly talented stylist with a strong creative vision, a well developed sense of style, highly intuitive design flair...and the talent to pull it all together. Having lived in several large cities over the past 15 years, seldom have I found someone of Emmett's caliber and ability. I've been fortunate that he's been my stylist for more than 5 years. He's even rescued me from several self-botched attempts at the latest trends :) All around nice guy, I would recommend him in a heartbeat! Pros: Intuitive, talented, creative, more

Always satisfied! 12/11/2008

I have been going to Emmett for over 3 years. I randomly found him by searching on city search- and he had good reviews so I thought I would check it out. He always gives me the perfect haircut- i am very unhappy. I also trust him 100% with my color- I always got highlights forever- and he suggested I go dark. I trust him so I gave it a shot and I love the color! Everyone I recommend him to loves him! I would never go to anyone else! Pros: Ambience, availability more

most skilled and understanding stylist I've ever encountered 10/19/2008

I have been to see Emmett four times, after finding him based on Citysearch reviews. He is everything I hoped for based on these reviews, and more! His haircutting and styling skills are absolutely first-rate. I have not had him color my hair (yet) but after my last haircutting appointment we had a very informative and helpful consultation about color options. Emmett is very attentive to clients: he listens with great kindness, gives advice about what is best for your hair, but then does exactly what you ask. Just to give you an idea of how great Emmett is, I live in Wisconsin, but gladly drive to Chicago to have him do my hair. At other times (in NYC), I have paid four times as much as what Emmett charges and Emmett's work far outshines that of these other stylists. I am very happy to have found Emmett and strongly recommend him; he is absolutely wonderful in every way. Pros: Relaxing environment, excellent service Cons: Parking more

Chicago's Greatest 8/27/2008

Stop looking. Have Emmett create a new you! He's the best with color, style and his chairside manner is surpassed by none. For over 11 years, Emmett has been cutting, styling, perming and coloring my hair. I met him at Vi's place on Clybourn years ago and followed him to Belmont ave. The only other person I would let touch my hair is John at Mario Tricoci Stratford who did my hair when I lived in the burbs. But why when I live in Chicago and Emmett is in Chicago and price is 1/3 of Tricoci would ANYONE go anywhere else. A True Master..Emmett is. Watch out Tricoci if Emmett ever decides to open his own shop! Pros: Emmett, need I say anything else Cons: Parking is sometimes not easy to find more

Best haircut 2/25/2008

I just wanted to comment about how great Emmett Hodge is. I would recommend him anytime. After a series of not- so-great experiences with hairstylists in Chicago, I saw the comments posted here about Emmett Hodge and decided to pay him a visit. He was very friendly, fun and professional at the same time. I did not have any clue as to what I want with my hair and he did what he thought was the best. It turned out he gave me a best haircut I have ever had with keeping in mind the general things I said i wanted to have (length). All in all, very pleasant experience and I wll deffinitely go back. Pros: Emmett and atmosphere Cons: I did not encounter any more

Nobody does it better 10/10/2007

Emmett has been doing my hair for seven years now and when I moved to Los Angeles for a year I missed him more than my family! He's talented and clever, he listens and gives very helpful feedback and I'll never let anyone else cut my hair. On top of all that Emmett is easily one of the flat out kindest, most genuinely good-hearted people I've ever met. He's a gem in every way! more

Best Hair Stylist in City..... 8/16/2007

After I met my boyfriend and saw his haircut styled to his face and most becoming to him, I asked him where he goes to have his hair cut. He told me that Emmett cut it for him and before he went to Emmett, he wore it differently. When Emmett saw him, he told him he would cut his hair the way that would be great for him, and believe you me, it is. So I said that I would love to go to him too. So I made my first appointment with Emmett about three months ago and I have been going to him ever since and think he is the best. I have lived in this city right downtown for a long time and have tried all kinds of upscale salons, etc., and no one compares to Emmett. I truly recommend him for both men and women. He knows what he is doing and he gives not only a great cut and color, he can style hair the best too! I am hooked for life :) more

Review 7/20/2007

Two years ago I moved to Chicago and was looking for a great hairstylist. I work in Marketing and Sales and do not have the time to mess around with someone who is not good and very professional. I have found that person in Emmett Hodge. His cuts are tremendous; service excellent; the new salon location is great and easy to get too; easy parking. I highly recommend Emmett to all professionals looking for a unique and great cut and styling; you will not be disappointed. more

He's definitely the one... 3/30/2007

I moved to Rochester, Minnesota two years ago from the DC area and had not-so-wonderful hair experiences after trying to find a stylist in town. I since learned that I had to ask for stylists who were familiar with asian hair (yes, i have coarse and thick hair but still that doesn't explain the hair drones of being of a particular ethnic background). Realizing I would have more luck in MPLS, I was referred to several great salons, but wasn't ever satisfied--I felt my look was outdated and my hair lacked vibrance. Finally, on a work trip to Chicago, I was determined to find a stylist. I was desparate at this point (I even had to fly back to Virginia to have my stylist back home *fix* my first & last horrible experience in Rochester). I was determined to find someone who could create a style that best suits my hair type, while matching my personality & face shape. Pros: Service definitely, Color more

I LOVE my hair 3/1/2007

My best friend and I were sick of chunky, fake highlights and hair coloring. We started searching for a hair stylist and Emmett's reviews were amazing. We gave it and shot and both LOVED his work. Emmett is really easy to talk to and he understands what you're asking for. He's confident in his work and the results show that he's very good at what he does. I never had highlights before and I was nervous and now I'm in love with my hair and couldn't imagine going anywhere else. He's great! I recommend him to anyone! A+! more

Emmett is #1 in Chicago! 1/5/2007

After reading all the positive reviews, I decided to go see him before the holidays after going to those stuffy and pretentious salons for many years. Not only did Emmett do a cut and color for me that was exactly what I was looking for, but I received so many compliments on my hair after. I will be going back! Pros: Great stylist, warm and friendly salon Cons: Parking more

#1 PLACE FOR COLOR & CUT! 11/15/2006

Accent and Emmett have been wonderful for me. I'm very particular about who does my hair and since I've moved around the country a lot the past few years I've had the good and the bad. At one point, when I was living somewhere else I was so discouraged that I flew cross country to get my hair done at my old salon. Now that I've found Emmett at Accent, I don't have to do that. He really understands what I want the cut and color to look like. And he makes great suggestions to match both to what I need. And the prices are very very reasonable compared to what you find around town. If you're not happy with the salon you've been using and you can get to Lincoln Park, you really should give Emmett a try. Stephanie is great when it comes to waxing my eyebrows. Both Emmett and Stephanie are very accomodating and have a flexible schedule that meets my needs. You cant go wrong. Pros: Great staff, flexible hours, Best prices in town! Cons: PARKING more

What took me so long??? 11/8/2006

I have lived in the city for a year now, and I have had a horrible time finding the right stylist. Finally, I took a chance on Emmett, and I really couldn't be happier! He is very intuitive, and gave me a fab cut and the color is great too. I would highly recommend him and I will definitely be coming back. more

Dont believe the too good to be true reviews 11/5/2006

Dont't fall for all those reviews, probably written by the staff itself. I got a 5 minute cut from Emmet with a technique I used to cut my bangs when I was 10. Ive been to a lot of salons but this one is the worst. Dont waste your money. Cons: Unskilled hairstylist, horrible location more

Incredible cut color and Customer Service 11/5/2006

I have been lucky enough to be going to Emmett for the last 10 years for cut and color. Pros: a stylist...who knows his craft well...a hair salon that knows the meaning of the phrase customer service more
