Editorial review from Citysearch 4/4/2014

I just visited Robert Lucas for the first time recently and felt compelled to share my experience, because it was so positive. First, as a new client, Robert himself made a point to reach back out to me to understand my current hair concerns and my vision for what I was seeking. I travel in and out of the City and so he accommodated my schedule by conducting this consultation by phone. Following the consultation was my actual first appointment. Robert took the time again at that session, in person, to hear (he listened!) my thoughts and offer his suggestions. And he completely delivered. My hair was a mess and he turned it into something beautiful. I have dark hair naturally and always try to achieve light highlights and it just never works out; my hair always ends up looking orange, brassy, red, too blonde, etc. Robert completely amazed me with what he did - the result was a natural brown with brown accents with no warm tones. Perfect. I am so used to feeling disappointed when I leave a hair salon that I was in a bit of shock I think about how good my hair actually looked. He truly is a color artist and knows exactly how to leverage products to achieve his clients' vision. A master of his craft, clearly. I am thrilled I found him and look forward to having great hair from now forward. Many thanks, Robert! more

Robert Lucas is a must for any one but particularly if you have problem hair like mine. I was so lucky to find him to help with my fine hair. \r He gave me a fabulous cut and a color that looks so natural it is unbelievable. He is funny and warm.\r His salon is very comfortable and everyone there does everything they can to make you feel welcome.\r Bonus discount parking at Watertower available. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/6/2013

Robert Lucas is an artist. \r \r When he colors or cuts hair it is with artistic intention to make his clients look their best . His work reflects fashion and current trends.\r \r I have had my hair styled by Robert since he was nineteen. He is a natural talent that makes him a ""cut"" above the rest. Plus he is a kind, generous and fun person.\r \r I am so happy to never worry about my hair. Life is complicated enough. I trust his artistic vision for me and I walk out of the salon knowing that my hair is right and that I have one less thing to worry about. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/7/2013

As I left my cut/color appointment last week, I told Robert that I always feel incredibly pretty when I leave his salon. \r \r Robert has been styling my hair for over 30 years and I can honestly say I have never been disappointed in my cut. I trust him completely, including his suggestions for a change in look. On occasion I'll suggest a new style. If he disagrees, he'll explain why he thinks it won't work for me. If he agrees, he adjusts it so that it suits me ""to a T."" That includes giving me a cut that fits my home-hairstyling skills (limited) and my time allotment (5 minutes, tops). He also colors my hair now and the look is so natural that you wouldn't know it was colored. \r \r His staff are also the best - - highly skilled, very professional and extremely nice. I would recommend the Robert Lucas Salon in a heartbeat!! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/17/2012

I have been going to Robert for over 26 years. I first went to him, at the recommendation of one of my best friends, who also still goes to Robert. Essentially, everyone we have ever referred to Robert, either is still a client, or has moved away. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/13/2012

Robert has given me the best highlights in my life. He listen to all I had to say and without damaging my hair or turning it to an ugly orange, Robert gave me pretty natural highlights. Robert is the best! I will never trust anyone else with my hair. more

Brazilian Keratine Treatment 10/6/2010

The Brazilian Keratin Treatment, ?BKT? that I have had at Robert Lucas Salon has been truly life altering for me. I have been fighting curly, frizzy hair for a lifetime and that battle is over. I can now wash my hair and let it dry naturally and it looks like I had my hair professionally blown out. This summer there was a great deal of humidity and it had no effect on my straight hair. I no longer have to limit my working out so that I don?t sweat too much and ruin a blow out or plan for a blow out prior to each and every event. I can have great hair all the time without the time or expense of going to the salon. In the past I tried so many different products and procedures including the Japanese straightening at another salon that totally destroyed my hair. I am done searching; the ?BKT? is a miracle product for curly hair. It is a bit pricey, but if you factor in not having to get a blow out for special occasions, the expense does not seem so great. Truly, I believe the product is priceless!!! The ?BKT? is a bit of a time investment, but the Robert Lucas Salon provides a warm, comfortable, unpretentious environment to relax and unwind during the treatment! more

Best Hair Colorist in the Nation 9/21/2010

I have been going to Robert for over 15 years. He is absolutley the BEST hair stylist and colorist in the nation! What makes him unique is that he instinctively knows what will work for you and what won't. He has a gift of creating a cut and color that compliments your complexion and overall lifestyle. I get compliments all the time on my hair. Everyone asks who did it and that to me is the greatest compliment! The atmosphere in the salon is professional and very comfortable. Robert and his staff are as wonderful as they are talented. Remember that your hair is your crowning glory. Robert makes you look and feel like royalty!!! more


No one can give my mousy brown hair highlites or color like Robert. and noone can cut it like he does. Or style it. sure,.I have to take out a small loan to pay him,.but it's worth it. I just do without some things. He is no-nonsense, which I like. His Staff,.Debra & Diana,.are the greatest. If you ask them for something,.they will do their best to get it for you. I have never felt so comfortable in a salon,.even though it's in Water tower place. If you've gone to all the other downtown salons, like I have, & no one gets what you really want,.try Robert! Pros: Robert and his staff Cons: Parking more

Naturally Red 3/29/2008

I have been getting my hair colored and cut by Robert for almost two years now. Trust me when I tell you, he is the BEST! Through his knowledge and experience, he has made me love my natural red hair again. He will bring out the best in your hair and skin tone. Not only does he have his hands full with my color, I have abnormally thick hair and the cut he gives is like no other. Unfortunately, I may be relocating for my job and the one thing that scares me the most is being over 1,000 miles away from Robert! Pros: Fast, Professional, Quality Cons: Expensive, but WELL worth it! more

Amazing Colorist! 11/7/2007

I cannot tell you how amazing Robert Lucas is at his trade. I recently dyed my naturally very blonde hair to a chestnut brown, and wanted to take it back to its blonde beginnings. I knew I needed an expert to get it right (because I'm extremely picky with my hair...especially with blonde hair). I googled ""best chicago hair colorist"" and Robert's salon came up. After reading all of the reviews, I knew I wanted to check him out. After speaking to the receptionist, Robert himself called to talk to me about what exactly it was that I wanted to do with my hair. He made me feel very comfortable, as well as made me feel confident he could get the job done and do it well. GREAT customer service! Once the day of my appt. came Robert ended up having to spend extra time on me because I had more hair than expected. When the final result was revealed, I couldn't have been more pleased. It looked so natural and beautiful...and there was absolutely nothing natural about it! YOU MUST MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH HIM! He's simply the best. And his assistants are the sweetest, most down-to-earth people ever. Be prepared to wait a little bit to get in with him, but perfection takes time. He's well worth every penny and worth the wait. Trust me.....I don't review and give 5 stars to just ANYONE. Pros: On time, great service, unsurpassed talent Cons: I really don't think there are any! more

awsome haircolor 7/25/2007

its very simple Robert is just the best there haircolor seems to get better and better..i look fantastic and i get compliments almost every day!! Pros: i look fantastic Cons: have to plan ahead for appointments more


I?ve probably been to half the hairdressers in Chicago. I have drab baby fine flyaway hair. Before Robert no one ever complimented me on my hair and I considered it my worst feature. Now, the color is glorious and the style not only looks great but is so easy for me to do at home. I get compliments galore and strangers in restaurants and parties ask for my hairdresser?s name. more

best colorist in town 7/20/2007

I have been going to see Robert for over 15 years. I always get compliments on my highlights and style. I have never been disappointed with my hair. He is the best and worth every penny. more

I come all the way from California just to see Robert Lucas! 7/8/2007

A friend introduced me to Robert years ago on a visit to Chicago. Since then, I plan all of my trips to Chicago around my appointment with Robert. Recently, I thought I could save some money and see a local stylist here in San Francisco. She came top-rated -- WHAT A MISTAKE!! One I will never make again! Robert is a truly talented artist. He takes his time with me to retouch my color and style as if I am his only client. I will always come to Chicago to see Robert for my hair color. I can't tell you all the compliments I get from my friends in San Francisco. Pros: I will never find a better colorist Cons: I have to come all the way from San Francisco more
