Insanely Awesome Massage – Anne gave me the best massage I've ever had in my life. Seriously. So, its definitely not cheap like Massage Envy, but goodness gracious, was it good! I got a deep tissue, trigger point treatment from Anne and I seriously feel years younger. Highly recommended!
Amazing Massage! – If you need a massage, go to Anne! I first met her at the Old Town Salon 1800 (where I go for many services), but recently she started working at the Armitage location. My back was in so much pain, and Anne sat down with me to ask questions to figure out what was going on. The massage was really intense, but i walked out feeling like a new person! Now i go there every 3 weeks to see her. If you're in pain, go to see Anne! She'll fix you!
Great Facial – Rebecca gave me the best facial of my life! She was kind of professional and cared about me and my skin concerns. I fell asleep a few times during the scalp massage. Also got an awesome foot massage! My skin still looks great!!! I would come daily if I could afford it!
I am 8 months pregnant and someone recommended I go to see Maribeth at Salon 1800 for a Prenatal Massage. This was my first time at their new location on Armitage. The space is large and lofty. The staff was friendly. The Massage Therapist greeted me , showed me the changing rooms, showers, and bathroom facilities. The massage was wonderful!! It was deep tissue and she really focussed on my hips, lower back and upper thighs. I felt so much beter that evening and was able to sleep comfortably. She recommendd coming once a month but was not pushy. If your pregnant, uncomfortable and want some relief this is the girl to go to!
new digs/same old awful service – I'm a salon snob--I'll admit it! As well as a frequenter at a number of fantastic salons across the city. I am in sales and need to look fantastic 24-7. I work downtown and there are a number of spas there that make my cut with their combo of customer service, top notch facilities and excellent results. I live in Lincoln Park and for awhile was a Salon 1800 regular since it is in the 'hood. Took a long break from them after suffering as their staff continually turned over; their receptionists demonstrated unprofessional attitudes and ability to mess up appointments even though they have a sophisticated booking system, etc. Well, a visit to their new digs on Armitage revealed that nothing had changed but the space. The prices are as high as the best in the city but the bad attitudes at the front desk and a prevailing lack of concern for a client's experience are still there. I never feel pampered there--just annoyed! A few of the nail service providers who are good are still there but so are others who are absolutely awful--from both the technical and professional attitude POVs! I will now go as infrequently as possible. When I will go: When my nails need to be done but not immediately prior to a special event or a big pitch. I have had several booking mess ups--the most recent a month ago and the day before a big out-of-town pitch. They offered no apologies, did not refer me to a manager, NOTHING! I had to have my assistant hustle to book me in a salon in Indianapolis which further stressed me out and I will never forgive them for this stupid mistake! After all, it wasn't the first time!
Elizabeth is the best massage therapist ever!!!! – I am a teacher and don't have a lot of time pamper myself. However, my health was beginning to suffer. I couldn't sleep because my neck and back were so stiff and achy. (Stress from those darn kids!) I was in major pain and popping pills to sleep.
My friend told me I should get a massage, and not just any massage, a massage from Elizabeth(armitage location). What a great recommendation!!! She gave me an incredible massage and I walked away relaxed and completely rejuvinated. I felt like a new woman!!!
What I really liked about Elizabeth is that she took the time to ask what exactly was wrong and where I hurt. I felt like she cared and genuinely wanted to help me with my pain. After Elizabeth's massage I was able to sleep soundly for once!!!
Thank you Elizabeth for an incredible massage!!! I will definitely be back again!!!
Matthew is no longer at Salon 1800, but he is doing hair at....... – Hi everyone FYI: Matthew is now doing hair at Milano Hair Design Studio. He is there similar hours and with similar prices. I was very upset when the salon claimed they didn't know where he went, so I just wanted to share information!!
salon 1800 old town – the best wax i ever head. Juliya and Amanda realy now what they doing.and also old town have parking spase)
Best Esthetician for Waxing Ever – Inga at Salon 1800 in Lincoln Park is by far the best esthetician I have ever seen. She remembered me after the first visit and is always so friendly. She makes easy conversation which makes me feel extremely comfortable, especially considering the circumstances. The best part of the experience with Inga is that it is the least pain I have ever felt with a wax before. She guides me through a few breaths and immediately makes the area she has waxed feel better. I would recommend Inga to anyone, whether an experienced waxer or a newbie. Thanks Inga!
You can find a much better salon for a better price and better service – I would never go back. receptionist very pretentious and acted like i was a moron because i didn't know i need to put on my own smock and venture to the waiting area in the BACK of the salon even though it was my first time there. my stylist was really nice and we had good conversation but my low-lights that i said i wanted a "dark auburn" turned out orange. took 3 hours for a cut and highlight and i have short hair. find another place- too expensive for the poor quality i received.
