Best haircut in town – I have been having my hair styled at Illustria Salon & Academy for many years. Karla always listens to what I want and gives me a good haircut. I would't go anywhere else.
Best Salon In The City!! – I have been going to Illustria Salon for a very, very long time. My Mom, Grandma and Aunt also go there. Heidi and Karla have taught me so many things on how to keep my hair healthy! I change my hairstyle almost every week and they are the only two people who can make my hair look exactly the way I want it to look at any given time. THEY ARE THE BEST!!!!!! - Stevie
Great Place – Karla is the best stylist. She puts her all into doing your hair to make sure it is to your satisifaction. All I can do is say thanks I found her again. I lost contact with Karla for several yrs. No one can compare to Karla's work. Thank You.
I only go to ILLustria – I love going there. Hiedi is the best!!!!!!!!!!! The salon is very clean and everyone is always very nice.
You Gotta Go To Illustria Salon! – I just got my hair done by Brooklyn. At first I was nervous because Steph used to do my hair till she left but Brooklyn did an awesome job. She is a great stylist and personal therapist! THANK YOU KARLA FOR CREATING A PLACE I KNOW I CAN GET MY HAIR DONE WITHOUT WORRIES.
Great for Walk-ins Guys!!! – I don't know about dirty and disorganized...The place is very informal, and I'd rather go there than Regis or some other god awful corporate salon. And being a guy I'd never want to spend more that $30 for a haircut. The girls are great, and I've never recieved anything but the best treatment and the best service. I'd disregard milwaukeechicks review, sounds more like it was posted by a competetor.
always a great job – I can walk in any time and get a great haircut. There is always someone who can take me with in 15 min!
In a word; VILE – Oh my GOD, in one word...VILE. Stopped in to get my hair cut, never been there before and OMG it was disgusting, filthy and disorganized. I should have turned around and walked out but I figured I would buck it up and try. Hair was EVERYWHERE, dust and GRIME on EVERYTHING. Seriously it tainted my whole day, and I am not flustered by much. As my hair was getting cut all I could do was look at this brown thing on the floor in front of my, wondering if it was a huge dead insect or a clipping of hair. I was so glad to get home and take a shower to wash the feeling of filth out of my soul. Yeah the cut wasn't bad, but I am NEVER, EVER going back in that place. The towel my stylist wiped the grime off her station table with was the SAME towel she used to brush the clippings off my face with. So, SO, SOOOOOOO gross. Go to superclips if you want to save money, go to another salon if you want a better cut and service. If you go here be sure to be up on your vaccinations! ICK ICK ICK.
