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...

My Now and Forever Waxing Place 9/10/2008

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!! more

Best salon in Chicago, hands down 8/20/2008

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! Pros: Best colorists and stylists in the city, plus it's an AVEDA salon Cons: it might be hard to find parking.... that's why I walk! more

You can't make some people happy...NO MATTER WHAT! 6/26/2008

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. Pros: Friendly knowledgable staff - always feels like a family - Aveda products are great! Cons: My preferred products are not always in stock... more

she did exactly what i asked her NOT to do 6/25/2008

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. Pros: some of the other people seemed nice Cons: the one who cut my hair has no people skills, is lazy, has no charm, and outdated styling/coloring techniques more

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.... Pros: Great people with talent! Cons: Parking is awful in the area... more

Best Salon in Chicago!! 4/21/2008

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!!! Pros: Cut, color, highlights, staff Cons: Not one!! more

wonderful staff, wonderful atmosphere 1/30/2008

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. Pros: calm and professional Cons: more expensive than budget options, but cost is a personal decision and I think it's worth it more

Great cuts & great color with a smile!! 1/4/2008

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. Pros: Great prices Cons: Parking can be tough but not impossible more

I've never had such a GREAT EXPERIENCE !! 11/19/2007

I never tried to do a review or had the desire too. This is a first for me and it is well do. Pros: Great Haircuts from Teddy more

Absolutely fabulous!!! 11/15/2007

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! Pros: people, aveda salon, scalp massage...mmm more

Fabulous salon 10/23/2007

My life stylist, Teddy, just moved here from Asha, which is the number one reason to go to Salon V. Teddy is a genius. My sister and I both give him free range with our (very different) styles, and he never fails to rock our haircut worlds. Plus, Teddy's cuts only cost $50! Awesome. Pros: Super relaxing atmosphere, and, of course, Teddy Cons: Not such fabulous parking opportunities; leave yourself some time to circle the blocks more

Look Great...Feel Special 10/1/2007

This salon literally blew me away. Since moving from the west coast, I have been unable to get a cut/color that I am satisfied with. After sitting with Meredith and speaking with her about what I wanted, I got a sense of confidence that she both duplicated what I wanted, and was excited about adding her own creative talent. I really was amazed about how much time and care she put into my cut and style. My colorist, Julia, was equally talented and amazing. I walked out of the salon feeling better about my style and color then I had been for years. I have gotten compliments daily and rarely worry about my hair anymore. This salon is well-priced, famously staffed (everyone is kind and friendly), and it's location is accessible and quaint. I'm so glad I discovered them. Pros: great staff, talented hair specialist, wonderful setting more

Guys should check out Salon V 7/23/2007

I love the experience at Salon V. Veronica has cut my hair for years and I have always loved it. When I can't schedule with her, I have tried other stylists there as well, I have never had a bad experience. David has cut my hair the last couple of visits and it is amazing. For a guy who doesn't have the easiest hair in the world to cut (very thick and lots of tricky cowlicks)!! You can't go wrong with the service here...I always get a scalp massage and steamed facial towel with my cut...very relaxing!!! Stylists don't give you ""attitude"" when you are in another stylist's chair. They all work very well together and are pleasant to every guest of the salon. Guys should definately check ot Salon V. It's not just for chicks. Pros: Great atmosphere, Very talented staff Cons: If driving, make sure you allow some time for parking. more

I heart my hair!!! 7/16/2007

After trying to make an appt with my regular stylist at a competeing salon I was told they were not long at that salon. Great. Off I go to find a new stylist. After getting a couple referrals to Veronica at Salon V, I decided to give her a chance. When I walked in and was waiting for veronica to start my hair I saw two very familiar faces, Teddy and Kacey from my old salon. What are the odds that the salon I would pick would have my usual hair stylists. I kept my color appt with Veronica and Teddy cut my hair. I was sooooooo happy with the color veronica did and the cut, well Teddy always does a good cut. Rumor has it Dave from Asha is also here. I am excited because now I have two hair colorists to choose from and I found teddy! I was extremely santisfied with my service and would suggest anyone going to Salon V any time! The prices are great and its an aveda salon so you really cant go wrong! Pros: great prices, awesome skill Cons: parking can be a pain, get to your appt early more

Best salon in Chicago 3/27/2007

I love salon V and will never go anywhere else. It is a relaxing and fun atmosphere. I always love my hair leaving here. The stylists are all experts in their areas. more

Best cut/color in Chicago 1/27/2007

I love salon v. The owner is an adorable and sweet woman who is top in her field (does education at Aveda). And everyone who works there is not only amazing at what they do, but really nice as well. They are totally on top of the trends, but always put making you look great over giving you a ""trendy"" cut. Pros: skill, atmosphere, people, location, products, cut, color, style, hours Cons: phone system/scheduling, parking, not cheap more
