Harlow is the best hair guru out there. For cut, color, or style she’s got your back. She always listens and communicates about what she’s doing and why she’s doing it which makes the entire experience easy and comfy. For color, she takes my natural brown and adds the perfect blend of dimension; my highlights look like I’ve just been out in the sun and I love that. She does amazing vibrant colors too, but if you err on the natural side like me you will leave feeling like a million bucks every time. Plus, she’s just an awesome person! Client for life and it’s worth every penny...good hair is not cheap, and cheap hair is not good. ;) Thank you Harlow & Rev. Billy’s Chop Shop you are the best in Chicagoland!
Great experience here! I had an appointment with Harlow, and she was super friendly and professional. I showed her an idea of what I wanted, and I asked her thoughts on it for my hair type/face shape. She gave me realistic expectations, and I love what she was able to do for me! Will definitely be going back to see her!
I've tried using a few different stylists here since I started coming a little over a year ago. They are very cautious to ensure you get exactly the cut and style that suits YOU. Yes, they do wild coloring but boring folks like me will be happy here too. They always call to confirm your appointment the day before which may be handy if you're not the most organized person. Wanna know the best part? PBR in hand...before, during or after your appointment. Now that's what I call service!
The owner and front desk staff are nice and accomodating, but I can't say the same for the stylist Harlow--she ripped a fresh piercing out of my ear and did not seem to care at all, even while the owner and receptionist were apologizing and scurrying around trying to find the earring. My ear was bleeding and the expensive white gold earring was eventually found in the salon but was broke. Whatever, we all make mistakes, but Harlow couldn't even apologize or contact me later to see if I was alright. Pretty mad that I left her a nice tip. In any event, the place should have offered me a discount for next time--the stylist cost me a $55 earring plus a discounted $30 replacement/emergency repiercing, and a bloody ear. Sure, they called to see if I wanted the broken earring back, but why would I? My haircut was just ok, but certainly not worth all the trouble. Two stars instead of none for the kind front desk person and owner.
The best experience I’ve had getting a haircut in a long time. Very easy to book an appointment. I went in with no idea of what I wanted and Hannah Mae helped me not only figure it out but really knock it out of the park. She did a great job especially with the zero help I gave in direction. I definitely know where I’m going for my next haircut.
They use good stuffs so my hair don’t get damage, totally happy with the results of the colors came out every time. Everyone here I have met are very friendly. Harlow is very helpful in choosing color for my hair type especially making it last without having it look so dry.
By far my favorite salon in Chicago (and best salon out of every city I’ve lived in as well). Rachel is a fabulous stylist and knows how to listen to my waffling about what kind of color I want to achieve and bring it to life. My hair is my favorite color it’s ever been after a color correction (which looked awesome) and a second visit last night. If you follow their social media accounts you will see how many hair-artists they really have in their salon. I’m impressed at how Rachel seems to master the full spectrum, from cuts to natural colors (balayage/ombré especially) and crazy cool colors I would never dare! The owners (Billy and Amanda) are also phenomenal and really care about their clients—it’s super clear from the moment you walk in. So if you’re into finding a salon where your hair will be given a whole new life, and you fancy some PBR & relaxation in a cool environment, give the Chop Shop a try.
Skilled cosmologists, not mere barbers. I didnt know the difference: its a higher level of training(and license), and they're allowed to use tools and techniques that barbers arent. The Rev. Billy himself took the time to explain why my hair did what it does, and each action he took and why - somethung I've never experienced. Cool atmosphere and nice people too! The only suprise: Very Reasonably priced, especially for the level they work at here.
I see Jennifer, she is fantastic. The first time I saw her I wanted a really drastic change and she was down for it. She offered to have me come in any time the week after and she'd help me figure out how to work with the new short hair. She's really knowledgeable about short hair, but I've seen clients with long hair, too.
Hip, laid back salon, priced competitively for a city salon. Scheduling was very easy, online, and for me, booking an appointment here sure beat a looonnnng wait in a barbershop. Many thanks to the Coiffure Extraordinaire Rev. Billy for rejuvenating my Hairdo!!!
Not only a great looking cut, but I had fun... Never been able to say that about any other place. I'd only had my hair cut by the same person a max of 3 times in my life. I always just did it myself with the Wahl clippers. Been coming here for over two years now and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Best haircuts, and not too pricey.
I had my hair done by Harlow on May 13th and I couldn't be happier! I went in and asked for "mermaid hair," and Harlow more than delivered! She explained what she was doing every step of the way, throughout the lightening process and the color application, and she encouraged me to ask questions. She was also super friendly and fun to talk to. The shop itself is wonderful! I loved the decor and and the atmosphere. All of the other staff members were nice and complimentary about my hair, both during the process and afterward, and they were always very helpful on the phone as well. Also, I felt the prices were fair and comparable to what I've paid for similar services at other salons.I highly recommend Harlow and Reverend Billy's Chop Shop! I'll definitely be back in the near future!
