I have been getting my hair done by Dale Jones for 3 years now, and she is simply the best!
Always attentive, thorough and thoughtful, I end up with the best hair, and the best service.
La Relance is the most pampering salon I have been to.
An Aveda Salon with a personal touch - it's always a pleasure to walk in the door.

I have been going to Amanda now at (newly named ) Salon La Relance for about seven years. She runs a wonderful salon, filled with pampering and comfort. They all do whatever they can to make you feel comfortable, relaxed and special. You feel so well treated here, it is like going to a wonderful spa. Not only do I find the Keratin treatments and color great, but also hair maintenance so that I feel that my hair is in its best shape ever. Also, I love the shoulder massage, hand massage, and wonderful Aveda tea that accompanies each appointment. Go here if you want to have a special day, at very reasonable prices. Amanda and her crew are the BEST.

Michael gave me the best hair cut in 15 years...since my last stylist moved to CA. I've been all over the place in regards to finding a salon, some very pretentious ones downtown too...didn't care for any of them. On a whim I made my first appt. here last year in the summer. Hair cut & highlites. Loved the results. I made the mistake of leaving too much time lapse for another appt. & I went to Florida for a wedding & got talked into getting my hair done @ a local pink salon. Huge, huge mistake!! I look Like a skunk w/orange streaks in my brunette hair! Just made an appt. w/Michael to get it fixed soon. Can't wait.

After my hair stylist moved to Miami I was lost. She did my hair for six years. I tried others at the salon, but no one had her talent. I would stop people on the street and ask who did their color! Yes, I was desperate.
I bounced from expensive salon to expensive salon wondering where the hell did these people attend hair school? New Jersey? Sorry Snookie! I went to some of the most elite salons in Chicago leaving feeling blah. Really? I just paid $200 for a cut and color that looked like crap!
Finally I met Amanda through a friend. By this time I had given up on my golden locks. Thinking this girl is not gonna get me back to the blond I want to be! But I was wrong. She is AMAZING!!!!!! If you have light hair and dread leaving the salon looking too yellow, too orange and just damn brassy go see AMANDA ladies!!!!!! She also humored me through my faze of wanting to be a brunette. She achieved amazing color only for me to get sick of it quick and flip back to blond in months.
Her partner in crime, Michael, is amazing too. They are both on top of all the hair trends and cutting edge styles. They have to be they are located in the North Shore! However, you don't have give up buying that bag you wanted to get your hair done there.
They both give you their undivided attention. She has never triple booked me, like other salons. I have never waited more than a few minutes to see her. And most important...she has never messed up my hair!!
I have since started getting keratin treatments, which are amazing. If you are thinking of getting one, go see Michael. My hair dries in half the time and is never frizzy.
It has taken me a long time to finally write something about Hair Texture la Relance, cuz I just generally don't write anything unless I'm pissed, however they deserve the praise. If you are looking for an amazing salon check them out. You won't be sorry.

I have been going to this salon for over 11 years and have been having the salon owner, Amanda, doing my hair for over 20 years. I will never go anywhere else.
There is an extremely talented group working there. From color to cuts and re-texturizing to Keratin Smoothing Treatments. They offer it all.
You are always greeted with a warm welcome from the minute you step in the door.
Love the full line of Aveda products they use and sell. (hair, tea, make-up, candles, oils, etc.)

I have been fortunate enough to have Michael as my hairdresser for about 8 years now and have followed him from Wisconsin to Ilinois. Yes, he is that good!!! Michael is the best when it comes to color and cutting. I have learned so much from him over the years as he considers it part of his mission to teach you how to do your own hair so it looks you were just at the salon! Granted, I still have some practicing to do but it is so nice to have someone patiently, very patiently I might add, show you how to dry and finish your hair. I have also met the other stylists and have high praise for the work I have seen Amanada and the others perform while I at the salon. The added features of the neck and hand massage are the best. Amanda always works to ensure that their clients have a wonderful, relaxing time while at the salon. I would strongly recommend you make an appointment and find out for yourself how fabulous your hair can look!!!
Hair Texture provides top-notch salon services in an inviting and relaxed atmosphere. You get very personalized attention and do not feel rushed in and out. Amanda and Michael are both talented stylists. Michael does the most creative and beautiful hair-coloring. I always trust him completely with my color and cut. He was particularly great when I had short hair. I LOVED what he did, I never got bored. Now that I have longer hair we have even more fun. You feel great after coming in! Not only do you have gorgeous hair, but have had a wonderful shoulder massage and some smiles and laughs.
I've been a patron of Hair Texture for about six years. It is wonderful. Relaxing, friendly,professional. You find the word for the best and I will second it.
Amanda and Mike are magicians. I go into the shop looking a mess and come out looking mighty good if I do say so myself. The color work is phenomenal.
I am no teenager and I always feel ""at home"" with all the clients.
I drive up from the city to Glencoe and it is worth every minute of the drive.
Thank you, Hair Texture. And that is sincere.
Being at Hair Texture is like being in heaven. The atmosphere, the people are amazing. I had the opportunity to get my hair done by the Eduction Director, Michael. He was amazing!!!! I have told everyone I knew about how wonderful he made my hair look. I've received nothing but compliments on how natural my highlights and color look. And the cut he gave me!!!!!!! I can actually style it myself!!!!! I'm so satisfied that I've book my appointments for the rest of the year.
Oh!! And the special touches you recieve in the salon are the best!!
My friend Mike has been a hairdresser for many years, and he is very talented.. He does wonderful hairdos and haircuts.. For the school dances we attended 20 yrs ago he did my hair back then too! gorgeous styles and cuts.. Make sure you check out Hair texture today!
There is so much to recommend about Hair Texture La Relance, you'd better get comfortable because you'll be reading this for a while.
First off, we all go to have our hair ""done"" to look better, and there is no doubt when you walk out of this salon you will not only look better, but FEEL better as well. Amanda, Michael and the entire staff are skilled professionals who use quality products and their combined talents to bring out the best in your hair and brighten your day to boot.
Of note, they are also great at repairing those little ""goofs"" that have resulted from a visit to the wrong technician or a box of home product. Case in point: I first discovered how talented Amanda is with color correction after I decided to lighten my hair myself with no-fail color from the local drug store. With bright orange hair and a baseball cap on my head, I wandered in to Amanda's salon to see if anyone could help. Not only did Amanda's skill enable me to return to work the next day looking the best I had in ages, she also shared her vision of where we could go with my style to make the most of what I have going for me. If you are unhappy with your current color, natural or otherwise, you will be doing yourself a favor if you schedule an appointment at Hair Texture la Relance. Whether you book with Amanda OR Michael, I guarantee you will be pleased.
This salon is very comfortable, warm and welcoming. You'll be treated like royalty as you enjoy a variety of extras to add to your Hair Texture experience: your hand and shoulder massage, brewed tea, nice music and good conversation. Furthermore, there's plenty of parking and the train is a block away, making it a very convenient location.
This is a place you will enjoy visiting. I guarantee you will look forward to your next appointment. Til then you'll be saying ""thank you"" over and over again as your friends and family tell you how much they love your hair!
