I decided to start carrying XEX business cards in my wallet because I get stopped on the street so often by people that want to know who cuts my hair. I have a short bob style, and David Perry is the only stylist I trust to achieve it.
David is more than a hair stylist, he's an artist. I went to XEX for a free consultation, and he made a few subtle suggestions to update my sad attempt at a bob haircut. Over the past 3 years that I've been a loyal client, every suggestion he has made has proven to be perfect for me.
When David recommended that I try partial highlights to give my color a boost, I took his advice I have never looked back. I love that Barbara Wiersma keeps a detailed record of the colors she mixes for me so it's always consistent. She has a very meticulous technique that makes the highlights look as natural as can be (disclaimer: I am a natural blonde, but my hair has become slightly darker the last few years).
Barb and David are the only ones I'll trust to touch my hair. The entire staff is extraordinarily friendly, and I'm there so often that they treat me like family.
I have been going to XEX now for 3 years and I highly recommend it! TJ is the only person I will let cut my hair. He is always so friendly and the salon is up beat, clean, smells great & the glass they sell is beautiful to look at. If you are looking for a salon, please try XEX! They are stellar folk!
I went to XEX Hair Salon for the first time yesterday for a cut and color. I heard so many great things about this salon from my co workers I decided to give it a try. I was treated so well! From the moment I walked in I was offered a beverage, the music was upbeat. It smelled like flowers (Aveda)! My hair was cut and colored by Barbara and she is now stuck with me. My color is perfect and my cut seems seamless! I am very happy with my experience!
I have been going to XEX Hair Gallery for over 6 years & decided to join yelp just to write a review about them.
They moved into the space that A Cut Above used to be which is where I went because I worked in the building. 6 months before XEX Hair Gallery moved into their space A Cut Above ruined my hair! They gave me a Japanese straighter which they left it on too long. Not only did I loose a lot of hair but it effected my roots and my hair is extremely fine because of it.
Barbara was the first hairdresser I saw after this happened and I have gone to her ever since. She listened to what I told her about what happened and was with me the entire way until the straighter grew out. She is very professional, treats me like family, is stellar at cutting hair, coloring hair & has the strongest hands when she is washing your hair. She massages your scalp and makes sure you are 100% comfortable throughout your experience.
The space is beautifully decorated with Darra Murano glass, bright colored walls, they have hip music on, staff is upbeat, friendly, they all seem to work in harmony.
If you like them on facebook you can enter to win a gift certificate from a local business which they give away every 10 days, AWESOME!
The owners believe in giving back to the community so much that they donate $1 from each service which equals to 8 plates of food with Feeding America.
I suggest you experience XEX Hair Gallery, you don't know what your missing....
I finally used the Groupon I bought here a few months ago and I had a great experience! I have been highlighting my hair blonde for years. I didn't expect anything different from this service until Jessica, my new stylist, gave me a world of hair information! She showed me that I had no dimension to my color, just solid blonde. I knew my hair was dry but never knew why. She explained that I have been over processed and taken way too light. Jessica suggested a highlight and lowlight and said within a couple of visits my color would look much more dimensional. It looked gorgeous and way dimensional after just one so I can't wait to go back. She also gave me tips on how to style my naturally wavy hair which, I always just blow dry straight. Honestly, she gave me lots of tips and was very easy to talk to because she listened. The staff here is great too. From the gentleman at the front desk to the other stylist nearby everyone was so friendly. I can't wait to visit XEX again. Thanks!
I had a great experience and will be going back.
I recently moved back to the Chicago area and wanted to find a nice salon to go to that made me pampered. XEX a great find. When I went in to set up and appointment, I asked for a stylist that is comfortable with fine hair. The guest coordinator recommended Jessica.
For my appointment Jessica was prompt, profesional and very nice. She also did a great job at cutting my hair. I'm glad that I was able to find a stylist as great as she is. I will going back and Jessica will be my regular stylist.
I also like the Fusion of Hair Salon and Art Gallery.
I just tried XEX out for the first time, because my friend got a great haircut from David. Entering the salon the was great the energy and people were so friendly. My stylist was Nina Davis a lead stylist at XEX, she gave me the best haircut that I ever received. Nina was patient and confident with dealing my craziness. So glad I visited this place..
Just received a great haircut from Kortney a senior stylist from XEX Hair Gallery! She was great she listened to all of my concerns, during the consultation she let me know that she was a colorist also.
The salon has great energy, and all of the staff was very friendly. Visiting XEX will definitely make you feel like you re at home.
Absolutely love this place. I've been going here for a few months now and have gotten quite the variety of treatments here - manicure, pedicure, haircut, highlights.
Everything I've done here, I've been nothing but impressed. The place is very welcoming, colorful,and intimate compared to some other big salons or spas.
All of the stylist here are great and experienced. XEX is a great salon to visit.
I went to XEX Hair Salon on Saturday to get a haircut from Kortney, who is a senior stylist there. I got the best haircut and blow dry I've ever received! The pricing at the salon is very reasonable for being located downtown chicago.
Kortney took a lot of time and care on my hair. She really looked into the details and treated me like she's been doing my hair for years. My hair ended up looking fabulous, I've never received so many compliments after getting my haircut. I'm so happy with Kortney and XEX hair Salon.
