Go Back in Time – In the interest of full disclosure, my visit to this Halo establishment took place at least four years ago during a business trip. While I agree with one reviewer that the dark waiting room was a bit creepy, especially with one other guy in there, I came for the shave experience and was not disappointed. With many shops today using flimsy so-called barber chairs, I was treated to a true old fashioned shave experience fully reclined in their vintage barber chair that dates back to the mid-1900s. The female barber was skilled and did a nice shave with no nicks but she did wear latex gloves during the shave, which was a slight turnoff with the latex smell constantly in the air. Not sure if she is still there but I would go back to Halo for another shave if my travels take me back to Chicago.

Do yourself a favor... – I came here thinking that I would have a unique experience. It was more like a nightmare.

I arrived and was greeted as though my call earlier didn't register an appointment.

Two women looked me over (probably assesing the tip advantage) and walked away.

I was ushered into a dark room with a large plasma tv. It reminded me of the setup some stoner friends had in their basement as a kid.

The haircut was a disastor, the stylist either had a bad cold or was on something. She definately needed to learn the art of conversation.

Afterward, no one even noticed that I got a haircut.

I did leave a decent tip, I figured the stylist needed it.

I was paying my way out of there.

Primping takes on a masculine tone at this king of salons in the Gold Coast. – In Short
If it weren't for the vintage barber chair, this might be your boyfriend's apartment with its flatscreens, guy-oriented reading materials and Wii gaming system station--precisely the comfortable vibe owner Robert Patrizi wanted to create. Taking the girliness out of grooming, the spa shares signature services made popular at its Lakeview and Bucktown brothers; The Man, a combo of a haircut, scalp massage, hot towel and facial toner, ends with what else, a beverage.
