A(+)rt and Science – Looking for a stylist in the city, I made an appointment with Heather Rae after a friend made strong recommendations. It was the best haircut I've every received! Heather is not only an amazing artist, she is funny, and playfully s exy. Heather Rae's contribution at Art and Science in conjunction with the affable staff create a dichotomy that contributes to the makings of what is a successful salon.
heather rae, a must! – i loooovvveeee art and science! i've lived in chicago for almost 5 years, and have jumped around to 10+ salons, never really happy with any one stylist. I used to see a stylist at the Wicker Park location, but a little over a year ago, I came to Heather Rae for a cut at the Lincoln Park location and I'll never leave her! The best haircut I've ever had, truly. She is really sweet and a great stylist.
Bad Customer Service – I called over there to find out about promotions for new customers (as mentioned on citysearch) and the woman on the phone was so incredibaly rude that I would never consider visiting this salon. She hung up on me when I thanked her for checking. Any place this pretentious does not deserve my business.
Head Stylist has ADD – I gave this salon three chances to perfect a haircut for me. Good technical cuts, but not what I asked for.
The head stylist bitched about the other stylists the whole time I was in the chair about how they did not listen to clients or respect them. Ironically He made me wait to get started about 5 minutes while he finished a text to his sister. He then proceeded to leave the chair 4 times and take phone calls.
As a result, I got a haircut that was too short, too old and too hacked up to do anything with. When I sent an email explaining I was moving on, he didn't even read what I was saying and responded I was hurt he did not take my call when I called back to discuss. What an EGOMANIAC. You are NOT that good, Pat.
a trim is not a trim – I had long beautiful hair, and went to Art and Science b/c it has been so highly rated.
I asked for a trim, and ended up with 3" pieces of hair all around my head. I'm an athlete, this "hipster" do is totally not me. My stylist disregarded my lifestyle, and the hairstyle that looked best on me. I went in with pretty long locks, and left with what I think is the latest hipster look. Which I never asked for.
Be careful. A trim at this place = makeover, even when you don't want one.
The best hands in the hair world touched my hair!! – I went to Art and Science about a week ago. My husband has been going to Candido Torres for a few months now and I have loved the way he has made him look so I decided to try him out. Wow my hair hasn't looked so good in such a long time. His hands are magic. I want everyone to go to him. I will be promoting the salon but more him as a person then anything. I am glad that I am able to share my experience with everyone.
This place is DISAPPOINTING!!! – I used to be a client of A&S about 9 months ago. This place is loud and chaotic and the staff is pretty snobby! The only reason I went to A&S is because I followed my stylist there. So about 9 months a go I go to get my hair cut and the girl @ the desk tells me my stylist no longer works there. I was in desperate need of a cut , so I went to the stylist they suggested. The stylist @ the wicker park salo had no idea what she was doing! I felt like she just got out of beauty school. When she was FINALLY done I was not impressed in the least bit! She also was very persistant in wanting me to buy products. My other stylist never did that. Its just bad retail skills! I will never go back to any of the locations and I'll tell my experience to anyone who asks me about A&S. Fortunately through the grapevine I found out where my original is at, and I couldn't be happier!! If you're looking for an awesome salon you'll feel comfortable in DON"T go to Art & Science!!!!!
Hands Down the Best haircuts anywhere! – Hands down the best haircuts I have ever had were from A+S. I have been to London, NY and now live in LA. I have been to the most expensive salons there are and the best barber shops out there...and none of them have the same quality as the cuts I ever received at A+S. They take their time on each cut, it grows out very well (the sign of a great cut) and they alway listen to what I want. Ask for Agie. She is one of the best! I miss her more than my ex.
Nick and Ella have moved salons! – I have been seeing Nick and Ella for quite some time and was devastated to hear that they no longer work at Art & Science. But my faith has been restored since I found out that they are now working at Studio 110 Salon on E Delaware Pl. So just to let everybody know this is where you can find them.
always a delight – i've been seeing aaron for my cuts and kat for color for about three years and i love my hair. i went from salon, to salon on the gold coast for the first couple of years after i moved here from n.y. , with underwelming ( to say the least ) results. art + science saved my hair , and the expense of flying back to n.y. ( i was so desperate it almost happened ).
