I moved to Chicago from London about 6 years ago and after 5 years of trying various hairdressers across the city I found Emmett. He's amazing!

I love his eye for colour and he always gives a good cut. I trust him completely, so much so

Emmett has given me the look I always wanted but he does it with an edge and his talented hands. I enjoy asking him for styling tips and suggestions on makeup as well.

I waited for over 6 months to write this because I was challenging him with color, cut and style. I love hearing friends and family ask how my new cut has changed my appearance. Oh, he does eyebrows too!!!

He's unique and well worth the time and price. He's located inside Salon de Vive in Roscoe Village. Thumbs up and 10++ in ratings. Thank you!!!

Pros: FLEXIBLE, HONEST

Cons: NONE

.

After many years of disappointing hair cuts, I finally found the right guy. The man has an incredible talent of knowing exactly what you need. Kind, caring, extremely professional and funny, a really good soul.
Emmett was able to work wonders with my extremely frizzy, sometimes curly, over processed hair which has been a challenge for almost every other stylist I have ever met.
I live in the far south west suburbs and will travel whatever distance is necessary for an appt. with Emmett.

Absolutely highly recommended. Find out for yourself what everyone else is raving about., you will not be disappointed. Like me you will wish you found him sooner.

Pros: UNBELIEVABLE CUT

Cons: none

.

Emmett is an incredible stylist with an eye for color and cut! I personally have fine hair which is extremely hard to cut- Emmett was determined to give me long hair. His creative cuts while working through the growing out stage got us to our goal.

Before each appointment he starts with a consultation, he always asks what I am looking for ensuring I will be happy. His creative eye and attention to detail is always 100%.Emmet is someone who cares about you beyond your time in his chair.

I highly recommend you book an appointment you will not be disappointed.

Pros: GREAT CUT & COLOR

.

If you need a magician with shears, Emmett Hodge is the guy! My widow-peaked, graying dirty-blonde hair challenges even the most talented professional. However, time and time again, I can always count on Emmett to perform minor surgery and major miracles on my locks. He really listens to what I want and suggests creative possibilities. He knows his stuff! The added perk to Emmett?s great haircuts and coloring is his engaging conversation. Emmett makes me laugh and think in new ways. He?s funny, sensitive and an extraordinary hair stylist.

Emmett is an incredibly talented stylist with a strong creative vision, a well developed sense of style, highly intuitive design flair...and the talent to pull it all together. Having lived in several large cities over the past 15 years, seldom have I found someone of Emmett's caliber and ability. I've been fortunate that he's been my stylist for more than 5 years. He's even rescued me from several self-botched attempts at the latest trends :) All around nice guy, I would recommend him in a heartbeat!

Pros: Intuitive, talented, creative,

Cons: None

I have been going to Emmett for over 3 years. I randomly found him by searching on city search- and he had good reviews so I thought I would check it out. He always gives me the perfect haircut- i am very unhappy. I also trust him 100% with my color- I always got highlights forever- and he suggested I go dark. I trust him so I gave it a shot and I love the color! Everyone I recommend him to loves him! I would never go to anyone else!

Pros: Ambience, availability

.

I have been to see Emmett four times, after finding him based on Citysearch reviews. He is everything I hoped for based on these reviews, and more! His haircutting and styling skills are absolutely first-rate. I have not had him color my hair (yet) but after my last haircutting appointment we had a very informative and helpful consultation about color options. Emmett is very attentive to clients: he listens with great kindness, gives advice about what is best for your hair, but then does exactly what you ask. Just to give you an idea of how great Emmett is, I live in Wisconsin, but gladly drive to Chicago to have him do my hair. At other times (in NYC), I have paid four times as much as what Emmett charges and Emmett's work far outshines that of these other stylists. I am very happy to have found Emmett and strongly recommend him; he is absolutely wonderful in every way.

Pros: Relaxing environment, excellent service

Cons: Parking

.

Stop looking. Have Emmett create a new you! He's the best with color, style and his chairside manner is surpassed by none. For over 11 years, Emmett has been cutting, styling, perming and coloring my hair. I met him at Vi's place on Clybourn years ago and followed him to Belmont ave. The only other person I would let touch my hair is John at Mario Tricoci Stratford who did my hair when I lived in the burbs. But why when I live in Chicago and Emmett is in Chicago and price is 1/3 of Tricoci would ANYONE go anywhere else. A True Master..Emmett is. Watch out Tricoci if Emmett ever decides to open his own shop!

I just wanted to comment about how great Emmett Hodge is. I would recommend him anytime. After a series of not- so-great experiences with hairstylists in Chicago, I saw the comments posted here about Emmett Hodge and decided to pay him a visit. He was very friendly, fun and professional at the same time. I did not have any clue as to what I want with my hair and he did what he thought was the best. It turned out he gave me a best haircut I have ever had with keeping in mind the general things I said i wanted to have (length). All in all, very pleasant experience and I wll deffinitely go back.

Pros: Emmett and atmosphere

Cons: I did not encounter any

Emmett has been doing my hair for seven years now and when I moved to Los Angeles for a year I missed him more than my family! He's talented and clever, he listens and gives very helpful feedback and I'll never let anyone else cut my hair. On top of all that Emmett is easily one of the flat out kindest, most genuinely good-hearted people I've ever met. He's a gem in every way!

After I met my boyfriend and saw his haircut styled to his face and most becoming to him, I asked him where he goes to have his hair cut. He told me that Emmett cut it for him and before he went to Emmett, he wore it differently. When Emmett saw him, he told him he would cut his hair the way that would be great for him, and believe you me, it is. So I said that I would love to go to him too. So I made my first appointment with Emmett about three months ago and I have been going to him ever since and think he is the best. I have lived in this city right downtown for a long time and have tried all kinds of upscale salons, etc., and no one compares to Emmett. I truly recommend him for both men and women. He knows what he is doing and he gives not only a great cut and color, he can style hair the best too! I am hooked for life :)

Two years ago I moved to Chicago and was looking for a great hairstylist. I work in Marketing and Sales and do not have the time to mess around with someone who is not good and very professional. I have found that person in Emmett Hodge. His cuts are tremendous; service excellent; the new salon location is great and easy to get too; easy parking. I highly recommend Emmett to all professionals looking for a unique and great cut and styling; you will not be disappointed.

I moved to Rochester, Minnesota two years ago from the DC area and had not-so-wonderful hair experiences after trying to find a stylist in town. I since learned that I had to ask for stylists who were familiar with asian hair (yes, i have coarse and thick hair but still that doesn't explain the hair drones of being of a particular ethnic background). Realizing I would have more luck in MPLS, I was referred to several great salons, but wasn't ever satisfied--I felt my look was outdated and my hair lacked vibrance. Finally, on a work trip to Chicago, I was determined to find a stylist. I was desparate at this point (I even had to fly back to Virginia to have my stylist back home *fix* my first & last horrible experience in Rochester). I was determined to find someone who could create a style that best suits my hair type, while matching my personality & face shape.

So I hopped onto Citysearch & made an appointment with Emmet after coming across his reviews. He was so accomodating too--I was from out of town, staying in the burbs of Chicago and had to navigate to the city by train--I really appreciated his understanding since it turned out that I wasn't able to make it to my originally scheduled appointment. He worked it out so I could still come in...

From the moment I stepped into the salon, I was relieved. He had such a personable and patient disposition, I really felt comfortable. He had suggested some ideas that really made sense--even while I was going through the awkward stages of growing out my hair. And the ideas were great. I left the salon with a totally manageable style. The cut had natural lift and vibrance. I was so motivated and convinced to keep growing out my hair. I couldn't believe it. I was already sold in coming back. I don't think he knew how serious I was in finding a good stylist--no matter the distance. And with all of my return visits, I can only hope this reflects how much I value his expertise. Definitely recommend!!

Pros: Service definitely, Color

My best friend and I were sick of chunky, fake highlights and hair coloring. We started searching for a hair stylist and Emmett's reviews were amazing. We gave it and shot and both LOVED his work. Emmett is really easy to talk to and he understands what you're asking for. He's confident in his work and the results show that he's very good at what he does. I never had highlights before and I was nervous and now I'm in love with my hair and couldn't imagine going anywhere else. He's great! I recommend him to anyone! A+!

After reading all the positive reviews, I decided to go see him before the holidays after going to those stuffy and pretentious salons for many years. Not only did Emmett do a cut and color for me that was exactly what I was looking for, but I received so many compliments on my hair after. I will be going back!

Accent and Emmett have been wonderful for me. I'm very particular about who does my hair and since I've moved around the country a lot the past few years I've had the good and the bad. At one point, when I was living somewhere else I was so discouraged that I flew cross country to get my hair done at my old salon. Now that I've found Emmett at Accent, I don't have to do that. He really understands what I want the cut and color to look like. And he makes great suggestions to match both to what I need. And the prices are very very reasonable compared to what you find around town. If you're not happy with the salon you've been using and you can get to Lincoln Park, you really should give Emmett a try. Stephanie is great when it comes to waxing my eyebrows. Both Emmett and Stephanie are very accomodating and have a flexible schedule that meets my needs. You cant go wrong.

I have lived in the city for a year now, and I have had a horrible time finding the right stylist. Finally, I took a chance on Emmett, and I really couldn't be happier! He is very intuitive, and gave me a fab cut and the color is great too. I would highly recommend him and I will definitely be coming back.

I have been lucky enough to be going to Emmett for the last 10 years for cut and color.
He is awesome...i get compliments constantly and strangers have asked me where i get my color done and how they can have their hair cut in my fashion..I am very grateful to him..for achieving this hot look...I am also extremely delighted coming to the
Accent Salon....Vi and her staff know their craft well..and are so friendly.
Kudos to Vi, Stephanie and Lena as well.

As well as doing my cut and color, Emmett has done makeup for me during all of these 10 years..
In this, he has done makeup for my Photo Shoots..and he is incredible...using my face as his
canvas...and colors as his palette.

I am delighted with this association....Sincerly, Judy Prebell

Dont't fall for all those reviews, probably written by the staff itself. I got a 5 minute cut from Emmet with a technique I used to cut my bangs when I was 10. Ive been to a lot of salons but this one is the worst. Dont waste your money.

I have been going downtown to get my hair done for years. I love to go downtown, but not because I have to...but because I want to. I did some intense research to find someone closer to home, and somehow by the grace of God I found Emmett. First of all, he does your cut and color. How cool is that! He is also very cute and charming. Funny too! Needless to say, I have never received as many compliments on my cut and color as I have since my visit to Emmett. Thanks doll!!! You're the best!!! See you in 6 weeks.

I moved to Chicago looking for a great place to get my hair cut and colored. Emmett was top-rated so I booked my first appointment. I now will never go anywhere else, and I recommend everyone I know to go see Emmett, including my sister in California (she books trips to visit me around when she needs her hair highlighted). He has a great eye and will give suggestions if necessary. I know walking out of Accent Salon my hair will look amazing. Emmett takes the time to make sure your hair looks gorgeous leaving the salon. You will not be disappointed with Emmett!! He is definately the best!

Ok - So I am the type A personality who will spend hours googling, researching, calling, etc. to find the best of the best. I am also the type that believes that you have to pay a lot to get good quality. I historically went to the 'best salons' and spent a fortune and can only tell you that after going to Emmett, I will not go back to anyone but Emmett. What I used to pay for highlights at other salons, I pay that but also get a haircut with Emmett for the same total price. I still am amazed!! On top of it, since he colors and cuts, you don't have to waste time going to two different people.

I have very fine hair that I get highlighted (and breaks easily) and after a month with a new haircut and color from Emmett, I still love how it looks and how easy it is to style. I also am quite pleased that he explained how he was cutting my hair differently to be able to add more volume and he was right. And the color is remarkable. I was skeptical of the other reviews that I read before coming here but I totally agree with another's comment that he is truly a hidden gem!!

I was thrilled to find Emmett, after years of overpaying at the large salons in Chicago. After a brief consultation, I got a cut and color that are great. The color looks very natural, and the cut is great too, although I'm having a bit of trouble getting used to styling it (likely user error!). I found Emmett to be very friendly and the salon quaint. This is the best kept secret in Lincoln Park!

I recently took my neice to Chicago for a girls night. We live approximately 3.5 hours away. I promised her a haircut in Chicago. So, after doing a lot of research on Stylists and Hairsalons (and I mean A LOT of research and not just on Citysearch), I decided to book with Emmett. He was fantastic. He was easy to speak with and gave a haircut that is easy to style quickly. My hair was too long and he gave me some layers to play up my natural wave. By the way, my hair is wavy and somewhat thick. I am currently growing out my bangs for our next follow up visit. My neice got a fantastic haircut also. He called it "model hair", which is exactly what it looked like. It was bouncy, layered and absolutely gorgeous. She looked so spectacular! He only took a little off of the actual cut, but layered in a lot peices. And, he cut her some long bangs. Her hair is thinner than mine with just a small bend to her hair.

Neither of us got any color done, so I can't comment on that. We both like our natural colors.

So, we are headed back there sometime between October and November for a cut. If I'm driving a total of 7 hours, back and forth, to see him for a quick cut, he must be fantastic. By the way, they are moving at the end of the year. We went on a Saturday and the parking wasn't too bad. We parked behind the salon in the residental area.

He was easy to speak with and gave a haircut that is easy to style quickly. My hair was too long and he gave me some layers to play up my natural wave. By the way, my hair is wavy and somewhat thick. I am currently growing out my bangs for our next follow up visit. My neice got a fantastic haircut also. He called it "model hair", which is exactly what it looked like. It was bouncy, layered and absolutely gorgeous. She looked so spectacular! He only took a little off of the actual cut, but layered in a lot peices. And, he cut her some long bangs. Her hair is thinner than mine with just a small bend to her hair.

Neither of us got any color done, so I can't comment on that. We both like our natural colors.

So, we are headed back there sometime between October and November for a cut. If I'm driving a total of 7 hours, back and forth, to see him for a quick cut, he must be fantastic. By the way, they are moving at the end of the year. We went on a Saturday and the parking wasn't too bad. We parked behind the salon in the residental area.

Pros: Best Value in Town! Did not push products.

Cons: Can't think of any.

I recently moved to Lincoln Park and was in the market for a hair salon nearby. Luckily, my search ended with Accent. My old highlights were brassy and didnt match my skin tone. Emmett suggested a darker highlight and took the added time to tone my new highlights to a color that better suits my skin. Although the change seemed subtle, my friends all noticed the new color.

Emmett also suggested I grow my bangs out to add volume to the long hair Im trying to grow. Ive always wanted a stylists who recognizes what colors and styles best suit my face. And now I have Emmett.

Cons: hot inside the salon

I have finally found a hair designer that I can totally trust. His recommendations and ideas are right on. I live in the south suburbs and for me to drive to the city, he must be great. I have gone to numerous salons close to home and I always feel like it is just another hair cut or color. Emmett changed all of that. Now I don't need to color all over to accomplish what I want! Without a doubt, he is a hair designer you want to meet.

Ok, I'm tempted to not share my opinion of Emmett, but that would be unfair to Emmett. He's the find of the year for me! He really took the time to listen to my opinion. Kept in mind that I was growing my hair out for Locks of Love and took the time to work with me to figure out what color I was looking for. I FINALLY have the cut that I've been trying to get forever! My only regret, that I didn't find you sooner!
Thanks, Emmett!!!

Pros: Thoughtful, patient and friendly

Cons: I did have to wait between color and cut when a (I think) walk-in came in.

I reviewed the salons on city search. I thought this guy got his girl friend, sister, neighbors, brothers girlfriends etc...... to write all the reviews. In spite of my doubt, my sister and my best friend decided to try him. We all loved him. He did great color and style. We are now driving from the south burbs to get a highlight and a cut! It was worth it. My blond is blond. My cut is easier. He listened and did not try to sell me a million dollars in products. He tried to get me to cut out most of my products. We scheduled second appointments! Go see Emmett!!!

I was lucky enough to find Emmett only a few days after moving to Chicago. He was warm, welcoming, and most important, VERY GOOD AT WHAT HE DOES. Emmett talked to me about my hair color/condition/cut - made suggestions - listened to my preferences. He took the yellow color out, put the blond color back in, gave me a flating haircut, beautiful blow dry. I felt like a new person when I left Accent Salon. I'd been seeing the same hair stylist for over 7 years before I moved to Chicago... I'm glad to have moved and found Emmett... it would have been very expensive flying back-and-forth from San Francisco just to see Emmett... but I would have considered it. He's that good!

Pros: Excellent hair color, Welcoming environment, Excellent service

I have been going to see him for the past five years. This tells at all. He knows what he's doing in any aspect of it, color, hair style, anything.
I do like very much every time that he does my hair.
He has the enough experience that anybody needs to get the right style.

I read all the reviews before visiting Accent Salon and this salon is EXCELLENT!

I went to Emmet for color/highlights. He gave a thorough hair consultation and advised me to return in a few weeks for the color, since the process would further damage my hair. (What other salon would suggest this?) I was impressed with his ability to access my needs and honestly look out for my best intentions!!
Overall: Very impressive skill, expertise, and credibility. Highly recommended!

My hair was in bad shape, then I found Emmet on CitySearch. He gave me one of the best cuts I've ever had. He toned my overprocessed hair (which was contrary to my skin tone) and created a color that truly matches my skin. It has been one and half weeks and I AM SO HAPPY WITH MY HAIR. Emmett actually told me not to come back for a while so I can have more growth and my hair can get healthy ( I am getting married in August- so I want it to look good). I mean how many stylists are so honest that instead of recommending I come back in two weeks so he can make more money - he actually told me what was in the best interest of my hair.
So yeah- I think I found a new home for my hair.

For many years I have been searching for stylist that would guide me as to what would work best for me and not just do whatever I tell them and finally I have found it. After listening to the reviews that other people posted about Emmett I decided to give it a try and it was absolutely fantastic. No more salon searching for me.

One appointment with Emmett and my hair has never looked better. I'm new to Chicago and used citysearch to find a new salon. The reviews did not steer me wrong. Emmet talked to me about my hair and created a style that retained the elements that were working and improved those that were not. The "yes" to sales pressure couldn't be further from the truth--Emmet made suggestions that would SAVE money. Emmett made the salon selection process a snap. The staff was friendly; the space/decor was elegant and cozy. The price was reasonable. Go NOW.

O.k. Ladies & Gents....CALL EMMETT!!! I was going to a very popular salon for the last 5 years and finally said NO MORE.... good bye to paying too much, tipping too many people and paying way too much for parking, not to mention having the same style & color everyone else had! After passing ACCENT SALON many times and then finally seeing it on this site, I had to schedule an appt. with EMMETT (anyone with this name has to be great, right?) Well, EMMETT IS THE BEST!!!! I have never been happier with my style AND my color. EMMETT has such a wonderful eye and is a master at his craft. Not to mention, he's a blast to talk to and I'm in and out of the salon in such a reasonable time frame! What are you waiting for? Call! Call him! CALL EMMETT!!!!

I found this salon through CitySearch reviews and made an apt. with Emmett following all the glowing reviews I read about him. I am happy to say he lived up to my expectations. My color is beautiful and the "blow out" he gave my hair looked amazing. He was very easy to talk to and gave me some great tips. I couldn't be happier since I got all this for about $50 less than my previous salon, which never gave me these kind of results. They won't be seeing me again, but Emmett will.

I started going to Emmitt on the recommendation of CitySearch reviewers, and they were absolutely right! Upon meeting Emmitt, he immediately put me at ease with his laid-back yet confident demeanor. For someone as neurotic as I am about my hair, this was reassuring. He carefully assessed my hair and gave me a haircut/style that best flattered my face. He was very honest about the condition of my hair and color, and I entrusted him to use his best judgment. I was not disappointed!! I highly recommend Emmitt to anyone!!

I came to Emmett years ago, with a haircut which didn't fit my face. After consulting my face features and a new color, I was sooo happy and pleased with my new look. Since then I am hooked and will go to no one else. From new hair do's and best of all my makeup was done for my big wedding day!!! My pictures are stunning and of because of Emmett!!! He's also very honest with you.

Emmett does a fabulous job with cut and color! He makes sure that you walk out of the salon feeling excited and happy with your look. I have recommended him to many of my friends who are also new to the city and looking for someone who they can trust to do their hair. Thanks so much Emmett!

I have curly hair and have thus had many, many bad haircuts due to the apparent confusion surrounding how to cut curls. Last year a friend recommended I go see Emmett, and without much to lose except the gnarly layers my last hairdresser had worked in, I swung by.

Emmett knows how to cut hair. Period. He has curly hair himself so he understands the pain of a bad cut. I've also sent one of my straight-haired friends to see him and she came away with a great cut too!

The atmosphere at Accent Salon is really great - relaxed, cozy and homey. There is, however, little parking in the area, so be sure to plan ahead if you're driving.

I definitely recommend Emmett to anyone needing a stylish, well-done cut and a good laugh or two in the chair!

Emmett has been my stylist for almost 4 years now. He is WONDERFUL! I have curly hair and he is the only stylist who cuts my hair perfectly every time. Emmett gives great advice on everything from products to cut and color and will tell me if a certain styles will or won't work with my hair type. He provides phenomenal customer service and always fits me into his schedule even when I call at the last minute. Finally, I have never been to anyone who can blow out my curly hair so beautifully. Every single time I leave the salon strangers compliment me on my hair. I have recommended Emmett to all of my friends and they are all hooked. Last but not least Emmett is friendly and fun to chat with, making every appointment feel like hanging out with a good friend.

My husband and I have been going to get our hair cut with Emmett for 7 years. He always does a fantastic job even with my husband's hair which is curly and most stylist don't cut it right. He is the only stylist whose job I have always been happy with. He is very reliable and I am ready to give him the freedom to cut my hair the way he thinks, will suit my face the best.

I went to Emmet based on the reviews I read on Citysearch, and I have to say they were right! I've been to a few salons since I've been in Chicago, and mostly they were overpriced, and I left with a cut and color that wasn't what I had asked for. Emmet gave me great suggestions on what would be best for my hair, and he gave me an excellent cut and color for a low price. I will definitely continue getting my hair done by Emmet!

Emmett has been doing my hair for 3 years and he is exceptional. I have thick curly hair that is generally hard to work on and he has always made my hair look fab. He does my color, cuts my hair and will even blow it out straight if I want it. No one can blow my hair out better than him! And, besides all of this, he is easy to talk to, always listens and is funny! I highly recommend him to anyone!
