So i just moved from New York last July, and as all of us ladies know it is like finding a needle in a hay stack when it comes to finding the a good hair dresser let alone someone who you love.it took me 4 months and multiple bad experiences here in chicago to find the perfect hair dresser... Pamela at Brilli Salon! Not only was she wonderful to talk to and hang out with but she did a fantastic job with my color and cut.. she made sure she accomplished my view. She is such a sweet, bubbly person and i look forward to going there because i have no worries about my hair and i know i'm going to have a good time. She is someone to go and she.. especially when your hair gets blotched by another hair dresser.. Thank you Pamela!

It is unfortunate that an insecure Salon Owner from a certain tasteless wicker park Salon would write such a false and unfounded review about a past employee just because she feels the need to burn others. Also, if anyone has ever been to this salon, they can tell you that every single individual that works in this Salon, knows the meaning of great service and understand the value of respect, trust and honesty. Again, i find it sad and pitiful that this certain Salon owner would subject someone to false reviews just to make themselves feel better for their own mistakes!!!!! LAME!!!!

I followed my stylist to Brilli and was pleased to find a clean, professional, plesantly staffed salon with good ambiance and a great product line. Sanjoy worked wonders with my hair color and I enjoyed my salon time without blaring music or staff drama to contend with. The beautiful jewlery on sale sealed the deal- I'm looking forward to my next visit!

I had my first experience after reading the ads..I unfortunetely had a really bad haircut by a newer stylist at this salon. To my surprise this man obviously doesn't care what reputation he leaves this salon with as I heard he is opening his own salon in the near future. I just wish it wasn't taken out on my head!!!

I found the staff to be pushy, snotty and rude and I would not go back. Maybe they have too many of their personal friends writing in because I don't see how this salon can be the same one I have been reading about!

Save your money, save your hair and keep looking!!!

I found Brilli on a Daily Candy posting for a curling iron class they were offering. I had been going to another Chicago salon for years but I went to the class, learned some fun curl techniques, and met Pamela. I have had blonde hair my entire life and was really wanting to "go dark," but didn't have the guts! She encouraged me to give it a try, and I booked my appointment. That was nearly 2 years ago! I LOVE Pamela. Of all the colorists at all the chic Chicago salons I've ever been to, NOBODY has ever given me exactly what I wanted, every single time. She is amazing with color...I always try new things and every time I bring a picture, I walk out looking exactly like I hoped I would. No surprises!

I also have regular spray tans at Brilli. I will NEVER go into a Mystic booth again!! Sarah does a FLAWLESS, streak free application with an airbrush. Its pricier than a booth tan, but well worth the money. No streaks, orange appearance, or awkward spots on knees and feet.

The staff are all wonderful...it feels like a trendy, chic version of the place in Steel Magnolias! Everyone is so nice and knows your name. I truly look forward to catching up with the girls every 8 weeks and know that I'll always leave happy!

I found this salon through craigslist, in an ad they had for hair models. I saw one for a bob, which was the cut I had been wanting to get, and found out that I could get that cut for free by an apprentice stylist and get all-over color for a product charge of $25. Now, for starters, I've had long hair for about 2 years, to about the middle of my back, but I've been dying to get a cute, stylish cut for some time. Seeing as how I'm a graduate student though, I don't quite have the money for a trendy salon and a good cut. This worked out wonderfully to my advantage because my stylist, Jag, was awesome (she'd graduated from the Aveda Institute and had been training at the salon for about a year). My cut, which was done by Jag and supervised by Brenda, turned out beautiful and I have been receiving compliments since I got it done. The only downside to my experience was perhaps the fact that the color I was having done (red) didn't quite turn out as bright as I had wanted, but I still like it. The salon has a definite 'feel' to it that does resemble a style lounge...I especially like the little room where you sit under the heat for your color, very neat! So, while I probably could not afford to come here if I was not a hair model, I think it's a great salon with talented and caring stylists who will do their best to make your hair how you want it. :)

I recently moved to the city and was searching for a good salon I THANKFULLY found Sarah at Brilli...she did an AMAZING job with my hair. I got a cut and color and she did a fabulous job with my highlights. She really listened to what I wanted. I have never been so happy leaving a salon. I would recommend her to anyone! She made the whole experience great and made me look amazing!!

I ended up crying in the entrance to Brilli salon after a terrible cut and color at Milio's on Belmont. I just happened to be passing by on my way home, and thankfully, Pamela made time to help me out. Little did I know, Pamela would turn out to be the best stylist I think I've ever had. I felt so welcome there, and while Pamela gave me a new cut, the other girls in the salon all sat with me and seemed to be on a mission to make me feel better - they are all so sweet at Brilli. The great thing about Pamela, is that she is CREATIVE and is INSPIRED by your hair - so she has IDEAS, in case you don't. I think Pamela is extremely talented. That night, she gave me a whole new cut, which was amazing. I just went back to get some highlights that she thought would look really great, and of course, they do! I highly recommend Brilli salon. And I am really thankful I finally found an amazing stylist.

I really appreciate the skill of my hairstylist. Pamela has been cutting my hair for many years. She was at another location and decided to join Brenda at Brilli. I now go to Brilli since I would not think of having another person cut my hair. Pamela is talented, efficient, and a very nice person. It is very easy to schedule an appointment through their website. I have absolutely no compliants.

Although you never know if these types of reviews are staged or real, I promise, hand-over-heart, that this one is the truth. I am a very particular blonde that hates to admit that I am particular. Every time I get my hair colored by a new stylist, I am nervous until the end. I have been a client of Brilli's for three years and needed desperately to have my highlights done. Much to my dismay my stylist, Brenda, was not available on such late notice. I had no choice but to get my hair done but Cosmina and boy oh boy was I nervous. Well, the nerves proved to be completely unnecessary. I have to admit, I was shocked. My highlights have NEVER looked so good. Her attention to detail, her ability to listen and translate it in to action was beyond perfect. I am officially a COSMINA CONVERT!!!! Thanks for making me feel beautiful!!! I will be back.

I have been going to Andreana for over 4 years and she has just left Brilli to go to Avieve Salon. The only reason to go to Brilli, in my opinion, is for the great cut and color she did every time I was in. I will be following her to her new salon and I recommend anyone looking for the best stylist to request Andreana when booking at Avieve. After numerous phone calls trying to persuade me to go to another stylist at Brilli I hope they finally understand that Andreana is the reason I went there!!!! Oh well, I think she is great and just wanted to let people know where she is at :)

I just moved into the city and was looking for a great place to get my hair done. I'm pretty particular when it comes to cut and color, so it's a BIG risk for me to go somewhere new. I have to admit, I had a GREAT experience at Brilli Salon. Not only did Pamela want to know about my likes, dislikes she really took the time to get to know me so she could give me the perfect cut / color. I am extremely happy with my results and plan to go back here from now on!!!

I moved here from Manhattan about 6 months ago. I had a hair disaster when I first moved to Chicago and have been letting the color grow out. A friend recommended Brenda at Brilli to fix my botched color. She made it look great, and it feels healthy again. I'm so glad I was able to find someone I can trust.
Plus, the salon is super cute and everyone was reaaly welcoming. Parking is tough though.

I went to Brilli to be a brazilian wax model with Sara. Not only was she super adorable, she was very sweet, and she wasn't afraid to get right in there, if you know what I mean!
Although I was one of Sara's first brazilian waxes ever, it was one of the best ones I have ever gotten. After the service I had no soreness or tenderness in that, as we all know, very sensitive area!
I will be going back!

This place is really cute and all and the people are really nice, I went to get my eyebrows waxed and I everything was going well and this girl was being super careful and everything and it was almost painless. You are probably thinking it was a great experience, well it was, if it wasn't for the fact that I came out of there with my eyelids RUINED! this was thursday morning and it's monday and still have scabs on my eyelids, at first it just looked like somebody punched me bc it was all purple but now my skin feels dry and it looks awful, I couldn't even put aloe because anything that touched it burned my skin and was just too painful.
So now I have beautiful eyebrows but my eyelids are burnt and ruined. =(

Because this salon was reviewed so highly, I tried it out expecting a great cut. I ended up spending $200 for highlights and a cut that was average (nothing that should have cost $70) because the stylist used up my allotted time trying to fix the color she mixed that turned my hair ash colored. And then complained because I had brought a friend to help me determine a style. She was also argumentative when I said that "ash" was not my normal hair color. The attitude was terrible and the salon over priced.

Guess I should've known that all the favorable reviews were written by friends or payed employees. I left this place feeling ripped off and dissapointed. The woman who cut my hair was pushy with everything, she talked a good game, but didn't really deliver- talked about this new haircut,(poorly executed) and these "fabulous products"(which left my hair a goopy mess). Please, if your looking for a great haircut without the "snake oil" treatment go somewhere else. Now, I have to grow out this choppy mess of a haircut before I can even get it fixed!! Worst of all I bought a bunch of products and I don't even know how to use them, that's what I get for spending so much $$$ in such a short amount of time- half hour, what a joke!

I'm okay with expensive haircuts. I figure quality comes with the price but when I'm charged nearly *$80* dollars for a 25 minute men's haircut it better be good. I'll admit.. it was good.

The problem came with follow-up.

"If you need a trim-up between cuts, just come on in!" I was told.

It never happened.

I called three times three days in a row. Then a week later: "Umm... yeah... we're booked. Sorry."

Come on!

The girl who answered the phone seemed like a robot. She wasn't able to even *try* and accommodate or say "Ya know, let me ask the stylist."

If you're going to promise one thing you *have* to deliver it when you charge a premium price.

Customer services sets you apart just as much as a competent cut.

If you don't have it, you risk getting average review from a former client.

Luckily, this experience led me to another salon. One that's just as nice, cheaper and VERY cool.

Ladies, my hat's off to you if you want to pay a lot for not a lot.

Guys? I'd look up another salon... maybe one that specializes in mens cuts.

I had a haircut, highlights and waxing done, and I was out in less than two hours. I was surprised. For the quality of the service and the way the salon looked, I expected to pay more, but I was pleasantly surprised again.
The staff is nice, and I wasn't left waiting without attention. That's important to me. Somebody always kept me informed or asked if I needed anything.

I just had a facial from Jennifer last evening and my husband said it was the first time I came home from being out and didn't crab at him. Ha. It relieved so much stress and my skin looks great too.
She gave me some good product suggestions, which I didn't buy, but I'm putting them on my Christmas list.

I had my highlights done by Andreanna (i think that's how you spell it), and I loved the results. I also didn't pay nearly as much as I thought I would. For a fancy full service place I would have expected to pay a lot more.

Everybody working seemed to be glad I was there, not just my stylist. Very good energy. I work around busy cranky people all day, and it's nice to finally sit in a relaxed place with nice and accommodating people.

I have tried so many places in the city, but nobody can do a decent men's haircut. My girlfriend goes to Brilli and said I should try it. My stylist, Jana, asked me a few questions, showed me a picture from a magazine of a guy's head, then gave me exactly what I wanted. My girlfriend is glad too, because she was tired of looking at my shabby head.
The place isn't too girly either. Some places I go in and it feels way too feminine for me, but Brilli is pretty unisex in it's atmosphere, but still pretty lux and groovy.

I went to Brilli for the first time last week for a cut, highlight and gloss. My color looks fantastic, but Pamela took off far more hair--like three inches-- than I asked for. It looks fine, but is not at all what I asked for. On top of that, she tried to sell me everything in the store! Seriously, I am already spending an obscene amount of money on my hair, I am not going to buy shampoo, conditioner, product and a blowdryer(!) as well. Regardless of the too short hair cut, I may have gone back but for the constant up-selling. It was obnoxious. Ironically, I did need some product but refused to buy it from her because she was so pushy.

Great style & cut, but I was hounded to buy their products, and they just wouldnt stop! My stylist pushed several different Bumble & Bumble products, each time I said no, she went on to the next, pushing & pushing. I just like to get my hair styled at a place without having to keep one hand on my wallet. I tried the Nancy Reagan "Just Say No", but it was relentless. They must get salon financing thru Bumble & Bumble. I won't go back, for fear of being hounded like a pack of wolves again.

From the second I walked in for my 10:00 a.m. appointment, I was treated very well. I was greeted by a friendly staff who offered me my choice of refreshing beverage. The entire staff is personable and cheery...no brooding artists here. I was attended to by 2 staff members (a seasoned stylist/owner and her very capable assistant that she was training, with my prior permission of course). Both women were very concerned that I get exactly what I wanted and were not interested in forcing their opinions on me (something I have experienced many times in other salons). The final result is great. I must admit I look fabulous. These women really know color. I would like to highly recommend Brilli Salon, you will leave feeling like a princess.

I've been getting waxed for a while now and i have to say they do a great job hear! the staff is very friendly and tiffany who does my waxing knows a lot about skin care and helps me to avoid ingrown's etc... from waxing. She also takes her time to give a great shape and I love that she uses hard wax! Prices are reasonable (about the same at any upscale professional salon) Parking is kind of a pain- early am appointments are easier to find spots, other wise its not a far walk from the brown line- or the Ashland or Lincoln buss.

After going to 3 salons in the city in a year, I was finally recommended to Jana at Brilli. Not only did she take 15 minutes to listen to what I really wanted, she made me the most beautiful blonde I have ever been. She was fun, easy going and affordable for the service. I highly recommend her for beautiful color.

My experience is shared from miles away. I am a loyal, appreciative Brilli Salon customer. I fly from Los Angeles to have my hair cut and colored. A gycolic peel -- to keep my skin reinvigorated. I stock up on products -- recommended by the salon --- Surely. For many years I have been in the hands... (literally) of owner and stylist, Brenda. When you walk in you are greeted by great music, and the very best intentions. a great haircut -- wax, glycolic peel... make-up... deep conditioning... highlights... pure color... a healthy cut -- and time with who's hands you are in .... which is as much fun as the hair job! Browse through jewelery... candles... hair accessories and a great collection of proven, intoxicating products. Everyone at Brilli is there because they believe in the power of what they do --- along with friendship, community, loyalty and making people feel great. The here and now, is a fantastic experience. If you can afford it, you will truly have a great time.

Cons: I wish there was a Brilli Salon in Los Angeles!!!

Im not one to write reviews, but I felt inclined to do so when I read a recent review bashing Andreana. I have been going to Andreana for three years and feel beautiful everytime I leave her salon. She is not only an amazingly talented stylist, she makes for great conversation when you are in her chair. She is always keeping ME up on the latest trends which is a bonus everytime I'm there. If you are looking to go blonde, she is by far, the best colorist in the city ....not failing to mention her cutting abilities. Her great personality and style are contagious!

Tiffany is awesome. have gotten a great Brazilian from her 2 x's now and she does a great job! (none of that ripped out broken hairs) she is very gentle and works fast. in and out and done. Thanks for keeping my lady business pretty!

Cons: little hi-priced, but worth it!

After reading many of the reviews on citysearch, I was sure I'd leave with a great new haircut. I honestly could have saved a lot of cash and gotten the same exact result from great clips. HUGE disappointment - I will not be returning.

I went into Brilli with high expectations, yet I was quickly dissapointed. The space is small and chaotic, not relaxing at all. I felt like my stylist barely listened to a word I said. Next thing I know I was getting heckled to buy all these products (way overpriced) my haircolor was less than ordinary, and the highlights looked chunky and outdated. The woman who did my hair seemed very distracted, and kept leaving the chair in the middle of my haircut. To top it off there was no hot water when my hair got washed. This salon is definitely not worth the hype. I do not recommend this salon to anyone, unless they want bad dye job.

I am very suprised to see people having such bad things to say. I have been going to Brilli since they opened, I guess about a year ago. I had seen the girls before the left to work for Brilli and I certainly had no intentions of switching! I have always felt that anyone I have seen at Brilli (usually Adreana or Pamela) usually exceeds my expectations. I feel compelled to add that if it werent for Pamela doing my hair and Danielle doing my makeup for my wedding my wedding photos would have been worthless.

Pros: love it being close to Whole Foods

Cons: parking is a wee bit of a challenge

Of course the girls that work at Brilli and their friends wrote all the good reviews, anyone who visits there would know that. I found the experience shabby myself, small, definitely cold and the girls there weren't warm at all. Aside from their snobbiness, the color I had done to my hair was fair, but who can't do hair. This was place was overpriced for what you get... I'll stick with my regular salon where the treatment is outstanding from the moment you walk into the door to the moment you walk out.

I did a kit if research before deciding on Brilli Salon, another rating website has negative things to say about this place, but everyone here seemed to be very praising. It now appears that I should have listened to the other site, as everyone who wrote these reviews clearly works at Brilli Salon, or knows someone there. The spave is kinda cute, but it was very cold, and sort of tacky looking. In my opinion, there was not enough ammenities for the prices they charge. Also, it was cold, and I had to ask for something to drink (I choose hot tea to warm up!) The chandelier was nice, but the rest of the space looks displaced. I guess I was just looking for an overall "experience" and just didn't get it. I will not be going back.

Go see Andreana at Brilli. I followed her from Salon Blue and have yet to be disappointed with her cuts. I love my hair when I walk out, but I like it even more as time wears on. She's great!

I have been going to Pamela Moore for years. I love her so much that I followed her from another salon to Brilli. I was a little skeptical about going to a new salon, but Brilli has so much character. The atmosphere is contemporary yet warm and friendly. Pamela always knows just what to do with my cut. I don't even have to tell her what I want. As for color, I am a natural blonde but she always finds a way to optimize my color. I always leave there feeling fabulous. It is definitely worth the price. I would follow Pamela anywhere!!!

Cons: Parking is meter street parking, but usually available

I felt more attractive just walking into the place. Then I sat for a moment and sipped on wine while my stylist prepared for me. She seemed very experienced and was skilled. I got great advice for what I could do with my hair. I also got great advice for what products I could be using.

I definitely recommend the massage. Rachel has a very skilled and strong delivery of the massage. An amazing massage room too, very relaxing and aestheticly designed.

I will definitely return. Not only are the stylists great at what they do... they are incredibly beautiful too!

I went to Brilli once before, and even though my colorist turned me brown instead of red, I went back. My color eventually washed out and was the shade I wanted (and it lasted longer than usual). This time though, I had to wait 40 minutes for my stylist who said, "I didn't even know you were here." No one seemed to care that I was waiting, I had to ask twice when she would be ready. No problem if you are running late, but at least let me know.

I have been going to Brilli ever since it opened and I highly, highly, highly recommend it. Pamela, my regular stylist, is fantastic--I get my hair styled, cut and colored often and she does an amazing job every time. She suggests changes to my cut and color when she senses that it's time to try something new, and I have never been disappointed by the results. I have also used Brenda and Barbara with equally great results. I get so many complements on my hair and have recommended Brilli to many of my friends. The atmosphere at Brilli feels chic, yet comfortable, and the entire staff is always friendly and professional. I hate being pressured to buy hair products, and although the staff will recommend things to you if you ask, I never feel overly pressured to buy anything. I feel like they truly care about making me look my best and not just about how much I am spending when I walk in the door.

When a friend of mine suggested Brilli, I was apprehensive considering my hour and a half commute. However, apon my arrival I found Jana to be considerate and respectful of my goal blonde, which other salons told me was unobtainable. A commendable consultation, amazing conversation and the real care for my hair, and I wound up with the most beautiful, buttery blonde that has literally stopped bystanders in asking who my stylist is. I have never, ever, felt as confident as I feel today. Jana gave me exactly what I asked for, and more.I will forever be a loyal client to Brilli salon, from reception and shampoo girls, to brilliant colorists. Cheers girls!!! I love you all!!

Pamela has been styling my hair for the past 10 years. I followed her to Chicago for haircuts and color when she moved here. Pamela also gave me the most beautiful wedding hairstyle. My hair turned out just as I imagined it would. She is a perfectionist when it comes to styling a brides hair. I highly recommend Pamela for color, cuts, and for special occasion hairstyles. All the girls at Brilii are great. Rachel gives the best massage in Chicago by far and Barbara has the art of waxing perfected! Great to have a place where you can get everything done - the way it should be done.

I really look forward to going.

Barbara is brilliant, friendly, very knowledgeable, and very professional. She made me feel comfortable, and offered suggestions regarding skin care. Barbara is sweet and full of positive energy and she directs the flow of that energy through your body and soul to turn you in to a new person.
Andreana has a great smile, a friendly attitude and went out of her way to make me feel comfortable. Andreana has a bubbly personality that uplifts your spirits.
Rachael is friendly and has strong, soothing hands. Rachael is sweet, wonderful, and quiet during the massage.
Parking, though, is tight. I hope they make some arrangements with the validated parking garage next door, which is used by the clients of Whole Foods, Caribou Coffee, and Gym place.
Over all they get 5 stars for creating a magnificent experience.
Don't wait too long! Go now and experience the magnificent place!
