See Lira!!! – I love Thomas West Salon! But even more, I love my stylist Lira! I followed her from her previous salon as well and agree that Thomas West is a major upgrade. I started going to Lira probably 3 years ago because both my mom and dad had been going to her. I have always been very picky and particular about my haircuts and color, Lira always gives me the PERFECT cut and color and I could not be happier! Even when I'm not sure what cut I want and am looking for a change, I always leave her chair so happy and looking good of course!
Besides just being great at cuts and color, she did my hair, my bridesmaids, my mother's and grandmother's hair for my wedding a few weeks ago. My updo was MAGNIFICENT and Lira was amazing with everyone of the special women in my bridal party! She was able to bring a fellow stylist Jerry to help who was wonderful as well!
She always listens to your concerns and ideas for what you want at each visit. If you are looking for a stylist to take their time and have great hair when you leave, I would highly recommend Lira at Thomas West Salon. The salon itself is always clean and the other staff are very friendly too.
See Francesca!! – I've been going to Thomas West for five years and Francesca is absolutely *THE BEST* in the business. She is incredible with both cut and color; I have long layered [unruly and curly, that looks perfect after she works her magic] hair and was referred to her by a friend who always raved about her.
She will help you with absolutely any vision and will cater the look or trend you are interested in so that it best suits your style and complexion. Appointments with her are a perfect marriage between what you want and what she can create for you. She worked with me over three years ago to create ombre highlights in my hair and I've kept them ever since!
More notable than anything however, is how absolutely personable and lovely of a person Francesca is. I always look forward to meeting with her because she is so sweet and so much fun to be around.
So much help!!! – Two days ago my hairdresser canceled for my WEDDING which is in three weeks!! Thomas West was able to fit me in no problem!! So now I can focus on everything else wedding related!
fabulous salon and Ellie is fantastic – I am 50 years old and have never had a stylist that cuts or colors my hair better than Ellie. She is easy to talk with about what I want and what she thinks will look the best. I started going there because it was convenient to my office but I have kept going because of the excellent results and all the compliments I get about my hair. Thanks Ellie, you're the BEST!
Amazing Salon.... finally found my perfect match! – I saw Keli for a color, low-lights and color. I have never been more impressed with a stylist in Chicago! After living here 10 years and seeing several different stylists with ho-hum results, I have finally met my match! Great customer service, very friendly and great ideas for how to make my hair look marvelous! The woman who whined about the color should understand that semi-permanent color is healthier for your hair! Stop complaining!
Lying associates--don't WASTE your money like I did!!! – I went here for the 31 days of beauty for $31 dollars. I decided to get my hair colored. Everyone seemed nice upon arriving, however, when I met with Kelli to do my hair, she NEVER mentioned that the color the salon was using is semi-permanent (washes out in 15 shampoos (3 weeks!!), and even LIED to me and said the color she was using on me was demi-permanent (lasts 6-8 weeks and what I usually use). She even tried walking away to mix the color without even showing me the swatch in the book, which I am sure was out of fear of me finding out the color was only semi-permanent. An associate of hers loved the color, so she asked Kelli what she used, and she said "Color Touch" by Wella. I went home and googled it, only to find out it's pretty much a wash out brand. I will never go there again, as I do not trust the girls that work there, nor the owner for not posting this in the ad. Watch out ladies!!!
Love it! – I love this salon and Natalie is the first stylist I have ever really enjoyed!! Highly recommended!
Megan, stylist, is fantastic!! but beware of snotty receptionist – About a month ago, I booked a Pretty City highlight&cut for the $59 special. Pretty City is a great way to get people to check out different salons and services.
On the day of my appt, there was a winter storm. The receptionist called me a couple of times trying to reschedule my appt (there was two at the time I was there - one who called to rechedule appt and one who cashiered). Since I already arranged my work schedule, I could not reschedule but finally agreed to come in a lit earlier.
When I got to my appt, I almost felt bad b/c I could not reschedule. Megan was my stylist, she did not mind the weather and was happy that I could make it in. Megan did a TERRIFIC job with my hair...she blew me away with her design in the color and cut. I told my friend about her and she made an appt right away. I just want to let everyone know that Megan is superb!
The receptionist(s) on the other hand, was snotty. In fact, I was charged $59.99 instead of the $59 special and she made me feel uncomfortable for keeping my appt. Intially she charged me $170+ and when I reminded her of the special, she decided to add on a few more cents (.99). My friend also got a similar response with the receptionist when she called to make her appt.
Beside the unfavorable experience with the receptionist(s), Megan did an outstanding job with my hair - i love it!
I love this salon. I've been there twice now and have been more than pleased with my results. I am naturally blonde and wanted to go brunette. It turned out beautifully. My stylist, Danielle, seemed very experienced and completely knew what she was doing. The second time I went, I trusted her to do something she thought would look good. She added subtle blonde highlights and touched up the brown and it turned out amazing. I always get compliments on it. Besides the amazing cuts and colors I've seen, the inside decor is beautiful, modern, and classy. I will continue to go to this salon and this stylist.
Avoid this Salon!!!!!! – If you are looking for a colorist, run from this salon they have no idea what they are doing.
I have blonde hair and went in for low lights plus my gray covered. First it was all brown then they fixed it to give me dark brown roots and lighter brown overall. It looks like a hot mess!!!! The only plus is they did not charge me for this horrible color. Now I have to find a colorist who can fix this mess.
