Unpleasant experience at Zeza – No matter how good Zeza proclaims, rudeness is all I saw. I stopped by the shop and asked about products. Al proceeded to tell me he thought my hair was a wig and wondered why I would buy products. He said I was lucky to have the thick hair for my age!! He proclaimed how great he was and talked about what the previous hair stylist had done wrong. When I asked him to tell me what he could do he and his wife (platinum shoulder length and unflattering haircut) talked loudly until I covered my ears and asked for one at a time. Careful with your intimidation tactics Zeza owners
If my wife is happy makes me happy!! – My wife has been going here for about a year and has been begging me to join her. I can tell you she has been happy ever since she started going. She gets highlights and a haircuts there. I love her being blonde and I don't know much about hair but if she's happy I am happy!
SO anyway, I was a bit aprehensive, considering I am a guy to go to a hair salon. They do guys hair there too. I probably should not admit this but I color my hair. I can not tell you how great of a job Tarick does. I hate having that stain on my forehead so everyone knows I get my hair colored -- BUT NOT HERE! Tarick does a real clean job and the color looks perfect. REAL NATURAL!!! Did I mention I get a glass of wine after a long day of work? I feel like I am hanging with my buddies at the salon - who would have thought that! Great place glad my wife found you!
Best highlights, cut in the city – Since I've been going to Al Hage I have NEVER had anything less than perfect highlights and cut from him. The whole group at Zeza are wonderful -- Yola is a sweetheart and Tarick is awesome in taking the time to style my hair properly. More importantly, they pay very close attention to what the client wants, and since it's different for every person, how they keep it straight is a mystery to me. I've never seen an unhappy customer there. For example, I am not a patient person, and Al can get my whole head in foil in 45 minutes. They handled me with kid gloves in preparation for my over-the-top Punjabi wedding. I had a 17-pound headpiece, and when I took it off for the western portion of the wedding, my hair still looked amazing. The best. I've referred several friends here and they all say it is the best cut they've every had.
Savage Truth: Best Salon in Chicago – Zeza salon is my best "investment" so please take this Terry's Tip. Ask for Al or Tarick, to get a great haircut -- no matter what your style. People stop me to tell me my hair color is great - on TV or off. And Rena has been doing my nails forever. Ask Yolla for a facial and waxing, Viola for the best massage on the planet! They're always on time, always friendly -- a first class salon experience!
excellent haircut – I recently went to Zeza for a new haircut. I wanted a new style, something shorter but something that fits my face and type of hair. I got one of the best haircuts ever! Absolutely perfect and without using pictures from a magazine! These guys really know how to cut hair, they are real professionals! I have been going to Zeza for three years now and I love it! They are also great for highlights.
Amazing Highlights and Cut – This was my first time at ZeZa, and I got a Highlight and Cut. My cut is one of the best I have had in a long time. I love the way my hair looks! The Highlights are bright and beautiful. I had a wedding this weekend and was a little nervous to try a new salon.. But I am VERY HAPPY with the results.
don't waste your time or money here – this place will over charge you after you leave as they did to me 2weeks ago for an extra $100 and not care I how fast they correct it. not only that, but they did not listen to me on how I wanted my hair cut and completly ruined my hair for 2 months as i had to wait for it grow out. Zeza i hate to say it, but your services are not worth the money and time wasted for a terrible hair cut
Amazing Massage – Absolutely every service I've ever had here is excellent and I've had pretty much every service. The service is never off. I hate when I go back to a spa and it?s not as good as the last time I was there, this has proven to never happen there. The staff is consistently attentive and friendly. Zeza is located perfectly for a facial after shopping and lunching!
A GREAT SPA FOR A MASSAGE AND FACIAL – I was recently in Chicago with my girlfriend, staying at the InterContinental Hotel. The Concierge at the hotel recommended Zeza when we inquired about a good place to go for a facial and a massage. I don't understand any of the negative reviews listed here because we had a great experience. The staff there couldn't have been any nicer. A gentleman named Christian gave me the best massage I have EVER HAD. I've had a great deal of chronic pain in my shoulders, neck and lower back from stress and an office desk job and I wanted a deep tissue massage that worked out the knots. He was completely amazing. The massage lasted, I'm sure, close to an hour and a half and, while I was a bit tender from the kneading afterwards, the pain from the tension knots is GONE. I will always remember him and this salon and would for sure put Zeza on my list of places to stop next time I'm in Chicago. (My girlfriend also loved her facial as well.) One note, the address listed here is on Superior Street and the Zeza spa I went to was on Ontario Street. Maybe there's some confusion about the location and the reason for the negative comments. Anyway, just like Chicago itself, it's a GREAT PLACE.
Great People Great Place - Always enjoyable – Zeza on Ontario is one of the finest salons you can find. The owners of this salon truely care about their customers and the service you get. I see other comments on here that I can't believe either the folks writing them have the wrong place in mind or they aren't telling the truth. I have been going to Al to have my hair done for over 15 years and I have never had a bad experience. He is highly professional and makes sure the salon is providing excellent service. The spa is also fantastic. I drive into the city just to get my hair cut at Zeza from the northwest burbs.
I highly recommend Zeza you won't find a better place!
