I had high hopes for this salon but was disappointed and I will tell you why. I am not going to single out the stylist but just tell my opinion. First I tried contacting them for an apt online, I never received a response but went ahead and called one day. I wanted a partial highlight on my dark hair. I would warn that you do not go by the prices that you see on the website menu as I paid double what I thought. I went in and was up sold (unknowingly) with a toner and a style which was what almost doubled the bill. So for a few barely noticeable highlights, I paid $120, I believe it was $65 for a partial highlight ( the highlights in the back were all put under where no one even when looking could find them that I showed, all they could see were 4-5 in the front. ) Then she said oh I will need to use a toner cha ching $40, and to not leave in the cold styled cha ching another $15, I went ahead and gave the tip because you can't really tell if you are happy right away any way , so I tipped $20 so for $140 I look like I got 4-5 highlights in my hair. I believe in getting a little more for my money and will go back to the place I went before where everyone noticed my hair and complimented it for months for $100 plus a $20 tip. I am not impressed at all with this salon and would not go back, ever. I don't complain a lot I just move on. I could have gotten this look at a beauty school for cheap , the other gal that I am going back to who is farther away gave me a more modern ombre ish look with my highlights and a retouch for $100 and it look so good people complimented me for months, this time no one noticed and couldn't even tell when I told them I had my hair done. And btw, they charge my credit card twice and I had to contact my bank and get that fixed as well. so over all for a salon I had high hopes for , I was very disappointed. use caution and ask charges for every single thing they offer to do and with my experience the gal that did my hair was mediocre at best, but very nice btw.
Best Hair and Nail Salon In ELGIN!!!!! – I love Karena's Hair Salon, Melissa is my hair stylist and really knows her stuff. She always takes the time to hear my wants and needs. Always makes me look and feel beautiful. The staff at the Salon and Spa are very friendly and always trys to make you walk out of there happy and satisfied. Even the owner Karena takes time to talk to everyone and offers you wine and treats. The prices are perfect for their excellent service. I wish Karena would open more locations.
I LOVE Karena's Salon and Spa. Nichole has been cutting my hair for a few years now. She also does my daughter's cut and coloring. Very friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices.

Great Service – Sue has been my stylist for over 20 years. I wouldn't go anywhere else for cuts, styles, color and waxing.
Karena's Salon & Spa - FANTASTIC – This was my first time at Karena's Salon & Spa. I followed my stylist Mel there, and absolutely adore the place! Its like a high-end salon, with out the exorbitant prices! Mel fixed a hack job that had been done to my hair at a different salon in a moment of weakness, and I am so happy with the end result! My hair looks fantastic!
