worst haircut of my entire life!!!!!!!!!!!!! – i called and FRANKIE was recommended. i told them i wanted a consultation as it was my first time there. i was assured if i came in a little early for my appt i would be able to speak with the stylist, i came in early and she was late. she rushed, had no hair magazines(what kind of salon doesn't have hair magazines), she was so busy running her mouth and telling me how she knew what she was doing that she wasn't listening. she heard bits and pieces put it all together and i ended up with no hair after i told her i was GROWING MY HAIR and only wanted her to clean it up and shape it. NOT CUT IT ALL OFF. on top of cutting it all off it was an ugly mishapen haircut. she did it in like 5 min (NO SKILL). EVERYTHING i told her not to do she did. when i called back to see what could be done as that was a lot of money to throw down the drain (i had to go a few days later to a REAL stylist and get a REAL haircut) i was given the runaround,and told a manager would call me back. well it's been 10 weeks or so and i'm still waiting. now my hair is super short. I HAD TO GO EXTREMELY SHORT TO OVERRIDE THAT DISASTER I GOT FROM FRANKIE,but at least its cute. my hair was shoulder length I WAS GROWING IT OUT for something different and now i have very short hair due to the incompetence of a careless person, and a shady fake salon that markets itself as if all the stylists are trained. LOL trained my @ss.
Nalida is Phenomenal with color. She's the #1 requested per customer service!!! – I met Nalida 5 years ago and every time I step out of Tricoci because of her I am amazed. I have had her experiment with blonds, brunettes, reds, colors/highlights and her work is just top Notch. She knows when to add low lights/tone, she's Genius with hair color. I have seen her work with different individual's hair colors/types across the years and all her clients just keep coming back. When you call and book and appointment with her try and call in advance as she gets the most requests. To top it off she's really sweet and really listens and provides great feedback!!!
LOOKING FOR COLORIST ROXANNE MARIO TRICOCI 900 N MICHIGAN?? – I'm no longer at Mario Tricoci 900 N. Michigan and am now located in Lincoln Park. I cut AND color at a trendy PRIVATE salon that's not a corp. and much more intimate and personal. It's called Salone Capriccio and is located@ 2167 N Clybourn Ave. and the phone number is 773-665-2542. Hope to see you all again soon!!!!
Awful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Absolutely will never go back!!!!!!! NEVER!!!!! I got a partial highlight. It was done by a "senior" level girl and it had to be done twice because she missed spots. Also, the partial is not a partial, it's just the top strip of your head and a few hairs on the side of your face. Awful! You can go to Robbert Jeffrey's on Halsted and get half of your head done by a senior stylist for $85 and it looks great.
Also, she put a conditioner on my hair, didn't bother to tell me it was an extra $15 or ask if I even wanted it, and it smelled horrible!!!!!!!
In the end, I had to sit there for more than 2 hours and pay $150 for a unsatisfactory highlight, and tip her $20. I complained to the main company and I think they have totally shrugged me off, so buyer be warned!!!!!!!!
great customer service!! – I tried Mario's for a second time after my bf gave me a gift certificate. The girl that colored my hair (Janet) was so nice and spent so much time with me that I really felt taken care of! My color looked AWSOME!! I had Miguel for a haircut after the color and I have never had a better haircut! I will definetly be back!!!!!
ROXANNE IS AMAZING!!!!!! – I had the best experience I've ever had in my life with a colorist Roxanne. She's young, fresh and did the most amazing hilites that I've ever had. She listened to what I wanted and treated me like a queen.The color was absolutely perfect!!!! She also was very reasonable in price and made me feel extremely comfortable. I would HIGHLY RECCOMEND ROXANNE to anyone who wants GREAT COLOR at a RESONABLE COST!!!!
HORRIBLE MASSAGES--waste of money!!!! – I just had the worst massage of my life. I was excited to use a gift cert. for the signature massage and I couldn't be more disappointed. The music in the massage room was too loud--I heard people talking loudly outside in the hallway and the massage itself was extremely mediocre. I suspect the masseuse was either not trained or very poorly trained. Her strokes were very fast and abrupt and the whole massage felt very rushed. She didn't really tuck the sheets properly when working on different parts of my body (I felt exposed at times) I have had better massages from massage school students and even from my untrained boyfriend. Do not go to Diana---she's AWFUL!! In addtion, the entire staff at mario tricoci are very rude and unprofessional. I will never go there again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Manicures given by Cruella de Vil – The other day I received a manicure at Mario Tricoci (900 N Michigan). This lady was the rudest person I ever met! When I sat down she began filing my nails down without even asking me what shape I would like my nails, as she was too busy talking to her co-workers about her new haircut. When I interrupted her to let her know that I like my nails square shaped, she gave me a dirty look and went about doing what she wanted. She repeatedly said "why are you watching me?....don't you trust me?...look that way...look to the left...seriously, I don't want you watching me do your nails." I believe that if I pay for a service I can look in any direction I choose. The rudeness went on and on and when I complained at check-out, no one could find a manager. I waited over 20 minutes and then realized that this isn't worth being upset anymore. I got a crappy manicure from Cruella De Vil and that's apparently the standard at Mario Tricoci. I'll never go back.
Terrible! – I've only been to the 900 North Michigan Ave. Mario Tricoci and the salon is terrible! The only person who i was very impressed with was a colorist named Nelida. She is fantastic! There is one colorist that i don't recommend and her name is Marisa. She acts like a know it all and her color is not even good. From customer service and the wait time and some parts of the salon looks like its falling apart- it's awful! If they are charging all that money for services then the salon should look good. I see Mario Tricoci as a high priced supercuts! Don't even waste your time.
Great highlights and cut! – Laura is amazing with blonde coloring! I've been going to her for 2 years and she consistently gives great color! Also, Paris does a great cut! I would highly recommend either of them! Yes, it's a bit pricey, but we're talking about hair here!!!
