Trisha is AMAZING... I don't get color so I can't say about that, but I can tell you that my usually thick hair feels light and flowy!!!
I recommend her to anyone... and I send all of my friends to her also. Not one person has ever complained.

Let me just start by saying how truly thrilled I am with my new stylist Corinne! I found her by accident, I called the salon and didn't know who to see. Corinne couldn't have been a more perfect fit! I absolutely LOVE what she did, my hair looks beautiful! Thank you Salon Buzz!

I went to salon buzz after a friend referred me. I called up to make my appointment and I asked for a seasoned colorist. They booked the appointment with Kathy. I only have one thing to say about the appointment when I left., ""How depressing was that experience?"" The only smile that I got was the one that she forced herself to give me when she met me. If you don't like what you do then don't do it at all. The color was OK nothing extravagant in my eyes. I will go back to the salon and see someone else because the staff was amazing and the atmosphere was great and the location is perfect for me. That is why I gave it 3 stars.

Andreas, my stylist for the past 15 years was in the team that did the Victoria's Secret show in Miami in November! I had no idea until I saw him on E! working backstage. I had an appointment the following week and he confessed while he was styling my locks that he did the hair for the show with a team of stylists, I do not remember the other guy, he does Jennifer Lopez hair and he is in Miami. WOW! The hair on that show was awesome! So is my hair every time I go to Salon Buzz. When he is done with his cut, my hair has body, personality, is shiny and healthy! And it is so easy to do it at at home! Everyone is friendly there and they make you feel so special. I love Salon Buzz! Congratulations Andreas, great job on the show, great job with my hair!

I highly recommend Salon Buzz, specifically Amanda if you are looking for an amazing cut. She always gives me the look I want and leaves my hair looking gorgeous, even as it grows out. Plus, the salon is in a great location and has a very fun atmosphere!

i got my hair colored and blown dry at the other Salon Buzz location (Delaware) on Friday (live in NYC, but work a lot; while in Chicago for a wedding, i got my hair done at Buzz per someone's recommendation). The color was pretty good, and the blowout was amazing...for about 5 minutes. NOw, my hair is VERY curly and frizzy. It's texture is similar to African American hair and is extremely curly. I loved my hair straight and was so upset when it didn't last. then, a friend told me that if I wanted a blowout, i must go to Angel. she said he gives the ""best blowouts in the city."" i also desparately needed a cut, and I decided to give it a try. I can HONESTLY say it is the BEST BLOWOUT i have ever received. it reminds me of when i was a little girl and would get my hair relaxed at the African American Salon. I cannot even tell you how amazing it looked, and 3 days wedding (post a LONG night of dancing at a wedding, flying back to NY, a day at work), it still looks great. I work on a trading floor, and everyone has commented on it. Angel was SOO amazing and I could not reccommend him more!

I had the frizziest, curliest most unmanageable hair, or so I thought until Rochelle Shaefer styled it for me. She trimmed it took just the length I wanted and took some of the fullness out. I've gotten Soooo many compliments. She is the best for curly hair. I had my hair done everywhere, even in New York at Salon Diva, the curly girl's mecca, but Rochelle's cut worked out better for me. She had great product recommendations, too.

Nail care worth waiting for!! My recent quest for a new nail care spot has brought me to Martine at Salon Buzz. I read some great reviews on this site and a couple others about Martine and called to book my appt. First of all, the salon is extremely busy and a bit loud. However, when I was escorted to the nail department the atmosphere changed dramatically...the volume went down about a million decibels, the room smelled amazing and all the equipment was glistening from recent sanitation, which put me at ease instantly. Martine's service: AMAZING!! As a regular nail care client, I find myself to be a bit of a nail care connoisseur, lol. I must say Martine's manicure and pedicure made 5-diamond spas seem mediocre!! The attention to detail when shaping my nails was outstanding, her customer service skills are out of control!! Forget about the noise, crowd and intimidating front desk and go see for yourself, you will see how impeccable she leaves your hands and feet. If she's booked, its for a reason...she is so worth the wait!!

Excellent cut & color services! After an awful color job 2 weeks before at another salon I called a Jackie who had cut my hair before and made an appointment to fix the botched color job. Jackie took 1 look at my hair and explained what had happen in the other salon and she was going to do to restore it to its former glory! I left there with a fabulous color and she even cut off some of the uneven ends that the other stylist missed and blew it out for free. We still have a ways to go to fix some of the damage that occurred at the other salon did but I look 1000 times better and it is all thanks to Jackie! The salon is a in a great location and they really listen to what you want and make you feel comfortable while they work.

I recently went to salon buzz on delaware and had the greatest experience- i walked out looking and feeling 10 years younger. I was met at the front desk by caitlin and i knew i was in good hands instantly. She was very pretty and had her hair done in a beautiful 50's coiffed do, and her hair is the most beautiful copper/red that i've ever seen! Our consultation was great, she really listened to what i liked and disliked, then gave me her ideas. We decided to go lighter and brighter blonde, but still warm and soft. During the service I felt totally pampered by the cute assistants walking around, and talking with caitlin was like chatting with one of my oldest girlfriends! Caitlin was so fun and personable, and she wasn't pushy about any un-needed extra products. I originally only had a color appointment with caitlin, but during the great consultation she suggested a hair cut with a stylist named erin. Erin came over and talked before the color began and she had great ideas to better shape my face and soften up my layers. She was just as sweet and fun as caitlin- and my cut has never looked this good. I'd go back to them even if my hair didn't look this great!
if you're looking for a salon, don't think anymore- just call salon buzz!

I just had the most amazing manicure EVER! Never have I been more comfortable and content with my nail services until now! Martine was my nail technician and let me just say; SHE ROCKS! From the beginning of the service to the end, she explained everything she was doing and why she was doing it. Not only did I receive an amazing manicure, I also received a lesson in nail care and let me just say her hand massage alone is worth a million dollars! If you want great nails and amazing service with a smile you have to see Martine at Salon Buzz...WOW!

This was the second time I visited Buzz Salon. The first time I got a fantastic cut. The second time I went to a different hairdresser because I couldn't remember the name of the first and they couldn't find me in the system. I asked for a stylist who was particularly good with curly hair. The hairdresser was very nice. I told her I wanted to keep my length as long as possible and add just a few layers to give it body. Well, she cut layers so steep and uneven into the side of my hair that they looked like a staircase. From the front my hair looks eight inches shorter than from the back. And she left just a few little strands in the back. In the front some of the layers were so short that they stuck out on top of my head. Basically, it looked like hell.
But the real problem was when I called to complain. Buzz wanted me to wait five days before looking at it to fix it. And said they had to charge me an additional $25 for the more expensive stylist who'd be available then. Not exactly customer friendly. So I called the second location on Delaware Pl. and after pressuring the manager I got an appointment t o see the original hairdresser I had seen on my first visit (another employee found me in the system). After spending $15 to park and waiting 20 minutes she looked at it only to say she couldn't fix it - too much had been cut off and it was too uneven. She said to make it even she'd have to cut eight inches off the bottom. Or I need to wait TEN weeks until it grows and then we'll see what we can do. The manager said all he could do was give me a credit for my next visit. I said I wouldn't be returning. He gave me a refund but i had to drive to the other location to get it - not exactly convenient.
By far this was the worst haircut I have ever had. So much thickness was cut out of my hair that I'll probably have to cut the bottom eight inches to make it look even and normal again. Would not recommend this salon.

I walked into Buzz off the street on a Friday morning at 8am in a desperate state. The day before my usual stylist--let's call him Mario--had colored my hair from its natural auburn into a scary blond highlight that resembled straw and was much more than just a highlight. In fact, with my dark eyebrows I looked like Colin Farrell in that silly Alexander film (minus his attractiveness). Immediately the compassionate receptionist set me up with a colorist, Lauren (I liked the name, a good sign). The receptionist, a stylish woman whose name I neglected to catch, eased my anxiety in a way that made me feel welcome not in a glad-handed way but sincerely; not as a customer but as a person in need. She set the tone of comfort and security that was to follow. Lauren listened to what I wanted to accomplish in a way my therapist never did. Her ease and security and knowledge assured me I was in the care of a professional devoid of ego, someone possessing the confidence that comes with nothing to prove. Lauren studied my hair, disappeared in the back to mix up her magic, and within a half hour I was happily paying for not only a restoration but an improvement. Another stylist volunteered that I looked much better than when I came in, and that there was nothing worse than a coloring gone bad. He knowingly snickered when I told him that Mario said it would take a couple of days for my eyes 'to catch up' with my new look. A good coloring should not require your eyes to catch up to it; it should be an immediate 'Wow.' And that is exactly what the effect was after my all-encompassing experience at Buzz. Clearly the staff enjoy what they are doing and take pride in their artistry. I am going to return, again and again. I am going to drop a bunch of money there. I am going to tell all my friends about it. I am going to kiss Mario goodbye. For all you trepidatious men who at heart are discontent with their stylists, I urge you to give Buzz a shot. I am beyond happy that I did.

I recently moved to Chicago from Los Angeles, where some of the best hair salons are located.I had a great girl in LA that did both my highlights and cut so I was nervous to try a new salon for my highlights. I found Dimitra in the color department at Salon Buzz (River North)and she is the BEST! She did exactly what we discussed, she should have her own color salon...amazing! But when it came to my cut...ARIEL gave me the worst haircut I've ever had!!!!!!! We discussed ""trimming"" 1 1/2 inches off to ""clean up"" the ends. She cut 3 INCHES OFF MY HAIR and I now have a bob hairdo! I've always had my hair long and natural and she gave me an ""edgy""cut, as she called it! I couldn't even cry I was so angry and in shock, they offered to give me a new haircut, but all of my hair was gone, so I go back there for my color, but STAY FAR AWAY FROM ARIEL, she doesn't do what you ask her to do! Note to self: watch while someone is cutting your hair, not reading a magazine.
