Best haircut and color! I recently visited Linda and felt like she rolled out the red carpet. Her co-workers are so friendly and I received great hospitality from them the moment I walked through the door. I left with the best hair cut

I was given Linda's name as a superb person for hair color, and I went to my appointment at Blade yesterday.\n\nI went in with an unhealthy-looking drab shade of dark brown/red in my hair, and I wanted something brighter that would lighten up my look. Every salon I've gone to in the past has told me that they can't change my look because the color is too dark - and that they'd have to spend 5 to 6 hours lifting all the color from my hair, in order to then go in with a lighter shade.\n\nLinda at Blade looked at my hair situation and came up with a winning solution that far exceeded my expectations. She absolutely transformed my look and gave me the hair I was dreaming of! I left with a lustrous warm brown plus super-cool swaths of ginger ""ombre"" lowlights.\n\nAs an aside, I asked Linda about fixing the bad haircut that I got elsewhere, and she had amazing ideas ranging from subtle changes to a whole new style. I booked a hair cut with her for a couple weeks from now.\n\nHands down. Linda is the best person I've ever gone to for color. She really knows what she's doing, uses high-quality products, and is the consumate artist and professional. I can't wait to see what she does with a cut!

I had to write an updated review after I went to see Linda for a ""back to school"" style change and once again she rocked it! My new copper locks and edgy pixie is just what I needed! I just let her go and once again I am totally thrilled with my new look. \nThe new salon locatin is great and love, love, love the new decor!\n

I've been going to Linda at Blade (and several of her previous salons) for about 10 years and am never disappointed. Linda is a creative professional and a genius with color. The cuts are always great and I leave the salon with fabulous hair. Blade is comfortable, immaculate and welcoming and is easy to get to by car or train. Highly recommended!

Very comfortable but clean and artistic atmosphere. I am a straight guy and Elgin is the best hair dresser I've had and I have lived in many places. They are a reasonable price and are very flexible with ideas. Last time i went in I just let Elgin choose a look with a few specifications i said and i turn out wonderful. Check this place out its in a good neighborhood and request Elgin

I have been going to Linda for more years than I can count. Every time I walk out I feel fabulous, my color is amazing and the cut is great from the moment I leave until I get back there (but she always says ""Well, just let me clean it up!). Over the years she has gently guided me in color and cut so I look contemporary and stylish. And it's not just that she is extremely competent. Blade is comfortable and all the staff is friendly and positive. I love going there.

I have gone to Linda for many years and would be lost without her now. She does the best color and cut. I like the fact that she changes the style from time to time to keep me in a current fashion. I never knew I could do so many different things with my hair. Her shop, Blade, is in a convenient Lakeview neighborhood and is always friendly and comfortable.

I've been going to Linda at Blade for my cuts and color for a long time now, and I have always left Happy. The shop is fun and comfortable so, it is a good time getting your hair done there. Linda has a great personality and she is really, really good at what she does. I pretty much let Linda do her thing with little instruction on what I want and I am always very pleased with the results. I get many compliments on my hair since I've been going to Linda which, as we all know is very flattering. I highly recommend you go to Blade.

I've been going to Linda for 14 years, and I always leave happy. My haircuts and color bring compliments from friends and family. Blade is a warm place, and Linda is a total professional. I couldn't recommend her services more highly.

I have gone to Linda for years and have never been disappointed! She is a perfectionist and I fully trust her with decisions on styles and colors. I always receive compliments on my hair and I have to tell people, ""it's not because of me, it's Linda"". Everyone at Blade is friendly and professional!

If you want great hair, call Linda Licocci!! She rocks the cut, color and styling. It also grows out well before your next cut.

I admired my friend's hair cut when I moved to the area 15 years ago and that got me hooked on Linda Licocci. Blade is Linda's creation and she runs it like she cuts and colors - it's a friendly, professional, stylish haven from my hectic schedule. The products are great and she is up on the latest organics and hypo-allergenics. I came for the great cuts, now I need color, a cut and a little instruction on managing my more mature hair. Linda is still the expert. My friends still rave about my hair.

At this point in our lives, we know a great cut and color. When you have a great cut and color everyone compliments you, and your hair looks great everyday! That's what Linda at Blade can do. Been a client for years and would never let anyone else touch my hair. Friendly, great products, and always a new suggestion for style-- she and Blade are the BEST!

When I found Blade on Citysearch a few years ago, I found everything I was looking for. My objective was to find an experienced stylist that did her own color. I've never been a fan of having someone cut my hair and another color it. I believe it needs to be a single vision...one of a talented artist that isn't afraid to take risks. I found exactly that in Linda Licocci.\r\n\r\nShe runs her shop with a lot of love & care and it shows. It's a friendly, spotless salon with great magazines, excellent music and a good cup of tea. I am always receiving compliments on my hair from both friends & strangers alike. You won't be disappointed with Linda or Blade.

Blade is the best! I love Elgin and don't want to share her with anyone! ;) She's super skilled and always does exactly what I want. She's helped me deal with some crazy curly hair and given me amazing cuts and color. The place is hip and laid back, while still super professional in their training and approach.

Blade is a great salon! I've been going to Linda for yeas. I love the cut, color (I call it a hair adjustment), styling and personal attention. Linda carries wonderful hair and skin products. I've had the Keratin treatment twice to relax my unruly curls and am thrilled with the results. It makes getting ready so much easier on rushed mornings. I highly recommend Linda or anyone at Blade.

Linda has been my stylist for over ten years. I have very thick hair and with her precision cuts, she always creates a masterpiece. I am a working professional and I have a one year old daughter at home. So needless to say, I need a sophisticated cut that I can turn around and recreate in a short amount of time. Linda is the best stylist in the city and I highly recommend her salon.

A friend of mine referred me to Linda at Blade, and I am so glad that she did. As a busy professional, not only do I have to look good, but I do not have the time to spend searching for the right hair stylist. I can safely say that I have accomplished both. Linda is obviously a very seasoned and skilled hair stylist and colorist. But what impressed me was how she listenend to what I wanted, while still giving me a modern look that I have never been able to achieve with any other hair stylist. I can't even count the multitude of compliments that I have received, even from perfect strangers.\r\nI highly recommend Linda and Blade. The salon itself is a very comfortable and friendly atmosphere. I'm already looking forward to my next appointment.

I've got very curly hair and in the past that has meant dowdy looking cuts from stylists that did not know how to give my head of hair a cutting-edge look. That has changed now that I've found Linda. Finally, I have a cut that is very stylish and very current. Linda takes her time and makes sure your hair is perfect before you leave. You'll love her. I've heard great things about the other stylists working for her as well. You've got to try Blade!

Great salon, always friendly, place is amazingly clean and the hair cuts are the best I ever had. I was a bit hesitant to leave my barber at first but after the haircut I got from Linda I was sold, and have not looked back since. \nI would Highly Recommend Blade Hair Skin Body to anyone that wants a superb haircut!!!!!

I've been going to Alison for few years, like 3 or 4. She's a great stylist, very confident and really good at working with you. At this point, she can do whatever she wants with my hair b/c it always turns out great! If you are looking for a great hair cut, you have to come see her. She makes a difference and it's worth it.

Pros: Easy, low key, stylish without pretentious swank

Linda Licocci has been cutting my hair for 17 years. I have followed her around the city. Her beautiful new salon has been worth the wait. Linda is a master of color and cut. She is an artist. I get at least weekly compliments on my hair from someone I do not know. I love going to Blade!

I went to Linda for 16 years before I moved from Chicago and still miss her skills 5+ years later. She always knew what would work the best with both my hair and personal style and even refused to do something once that would have been a disaster. In hindsight I was very glad she did!\n\nIf only there were a Linda in Los Angeles...I miss her and her cuts!

Linda really gets it when it comes to cutting my hair. Short, long, a little off the top, don't cut the bangs too short, let's have some fun with it - she does it all by listening to what I want and making it happen. The salon space is low key and fun, parking on the street is easy most of the time. Linda's a great gal and keeps me looking great, too!

Linda @ Blade gets it right every time. Whether I ask for a specific cut or let her suggest something different, I am never disappointed. Although I know she is a fab colorist, I never got pressure while I was coloring my own hair. Great atmosphere in the shop--always professional. Blade gets my vote for sure.

I had my makeup done by Amy for my cousins birthday party. She did a great job selecting colors that complimented my outfit. Her technique in applying the eye makeup was one that I never would have thought of myself. The result was great. I kinda felt like a superstar. Plus it lasted all day. I recommend Amy for any specail occasion makeup. I'll be seeing her again for my next party! Thanks Amy!!!

I have a head of curly hair and Linda does an amazing job styling it! She has transformed my once stair-step choppy layers into long beautiful multi-layered curls. I ventured out to highlights (which I had not done since high school) and was very pleased by the result. It made my hair look warm and highlighted the curls nicely. I have been going to Linda ever since I moved to the city (2 years now) and will continue going back. She's professional and very friendly. She will take time to make sure you are pleased with the result.

Being a natural redhead, I was nervous to have any color added to my hair. Not many people can work with such color and make it look real. ( If you've ever looked around the El, you know there are a lot of girls out there with really bad fake red hair). But Linda nailed it. She listened to what i was hoping for and translated it into color masterfully. She added the richness back into my natural color in a way that is both distinct and subtle. I love it. Trust me, if she can rock red, there's no color she can't nail.

Linda has been wrangling my increasingly grey, demonic, ""lots of"" wavy/frizzy hair for 10+ years. I need to be able to blowdry it out, air dry or scrunch, pull back in pony tail or braid all while having some sort of style. She also is a very good listener and knows when to introduce more ""excitement"" or ""trends"" without pushing me too much out of my comfort zone since I need to live with it every day. I always get compliments! On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, I give Linda/Blade a ""12""

I did not know that my first visit to Blade -over a year ago, was going to make me a big fan of this awesome salon. Since my first haircut until now, Linda has showed me that it is possible to achieve what most hair stylists would always tell me was impossible: A perfectly polished wash and wear style. She is an amazing artist that knows how to work with every hair texture to make the most of it with beautiful results.\nIf you are not sure where to go, give Blade a try. You are going to love it!

Linda Licocci has been cutting and coloring my hair for 20+ years. From city living to suburb living to now living 2 hours away -- Linda has done my hair! Color or haircut -- I ALWAYS get compliments and ""who does your hair"" and feel great about how I look. . What I like most is sitting in the chair and letting Linda take the lead. Her professionalism and artistry is second to none -- particularly with color. I look forward to my next visit so that I can hear the latest and look my best when I leave. Blade is an AWESOME salon -- great parking (right outside the door), relaxing environment and a great place just to sit a read a magazine! Blade also offers full skin care services which I have taken advantage of. Linda's colleagues at the salon deliver top notch services as well -- only the best from Linda and Blade!

I have been a Linda convert since 1992. I have followed her all over the city and am happy she has her Blade! Linda is the most talented and creative person-- from her personal style, her singing to-- of course-- hair!! I can't say enough. I moved out of the city to the 'Burbs in 2000 and always made the trip for Linda. I had my 2nd child in 07and ""my time"" went on the back burner and I went to a stylist 4 minutes from my house-- but no more. I was just at Blade and got a highlight and cut. My husband said it all. When he saw my hair he loved it and asked who did it. I proudly said Linda! He said I thought so! Women -- and Men-- you deserve the Best and Linda is the one! Don't hesitate any longer. \r\nI can't wait to go back! I just sit in the chair and do not flinch to let Linda do what she feels like-- I am never disappointed. Thanks Linda! (Plus I just met Amy, the makeup stylist. She is adorable-- gave me a makeup touch up and made me look ""Wow!"") See you both soon!

Pros: Linda is fabulous with cut, color and OMG-- the styling!!

Cons: I don't go to her often enough!

Alison is the ONLY one I will ever let touch my hair. She is not only friendly and professional, but makes all the other hairstylists I've ever gone to seem like amateurs. She is up on what is hot and current but is also fantastic at traditional styles and cuts. Honestly, whatever you want she can do. Not only do, but do better than anyone else. I can not say enough or recommend her enough! And if you ever have her blowdry your hair (ladies)? You will never want to dry your hair yourself again! Magic! She is genius! I am so grateful to have found her!!! If you haven't made an appt with her yet, do! You will be glad you did!\r\n

I get my haircuts by Alison. She is great. Very methodical and nice. I don't feel like she is rushing me to get out of the chair. The salon is very accessible. There is always parking available. It has a very warm and inviting atmosphere. Definitely give Alison a try. You won't be disappointed!

I had long thick asian hair, it was at the point where I didn't know what to do w/ it anymore. I was ready for a change, a drastic one. I searched around for a stylist that I could trust to make this change happen, but wan't feeling too confident, until my friend recommended Blade. I read some reviews and was convinced this is THE place. I have to admit, before going to my appointment, I began to have second thoughts, as to whether I should make such a change with a salon I'm visitng for the first time. I thought, ok maybe I'll just go in for a trim, and see how I like it. After meeting and consulting with my stylist, Linda Licocci, I had no doubt...go for it, let's chop it off! Her extensive training and experience really shows. The result was an awesome cut and gorgeous color! It was beyond my expectations. Linda's cuts and color make the ""growing out"" stages of my hair continue to look great (no strange in between, let's keep my hair in a ponytail stages). Since my initial visit, I've been back numerous times, and will continue to go. I can't see myself going to any other salon. I've received many compliments on my hair, even from strangers!!! Thanks LInda! =)

Pros: Cut, Color, Style!

Linda Licocci makes me look great. I know whatever she does with my hair -- color, highlights and haircuts -- are hip and chic. She is UNCANNY at being able to look at me and figure out next steps. So I sit and sip tea and let her go to town. I moved here in August '92, and since finding her in November '92, NO ONE ELSE has touched my hairs. And a nice addition? Linda is fun, funny and sooo incredibly kind and warm. So is Blade -- just a warm terrific place to chill out. Great cosmetics, too! Try their lip sticks and gels especially!!!

Pros: Linda can ""see"" a haircut or change and just make it happen

I have had a series of horrible hair cuts and was in dire need of a good cut. I went to Blade based on the reviews in citysearch. I described what I wanted to Linda: something a little funky, easy to maintain (no mandatory styling), 'strong' bangs. When I left, I felt like my hair was more polished than I wanted. BUT, it's been a week now and I love it. Not because I got used to it, but because once I washed my hair and (not) styled it the way I said I would, it was PERFECT. I've gotten compliments aplenty. My partner says 'I love your hair' spontaneously. If you're in the over $50/under $100 market, do it.

Pros: good at figuring out what you want (even if you're not that great at expressing it)

You have to deal with your hair every day, so I believe in getting a good haircut. I moved here in 1990 and Linda Licocci was the 2nd stylist I visited. I am very thankful that I have been able to continue as her client for 18 years. She'll listen to your wants and concerns and give good advice. I have fine, straight hair and Linda knows how to give it body and color.\r\n\r\nI highly recommend Linda and Blade in general. I can also recommend the facials and make-up consultations.

Linda is the real deal. She has been cutting my hair for over 15 years and always does a great job. She really understands how to work with my thick, wavy, curly hair (before Linda, I went to at least two other stylists who said they knew how to cut my hair, but didn't really know what they were doing). She has always focused on me as an individual and I know she does the same for all of her customers. I need my hair to be long enough to put up when I run and unlike many stylists who think they know better than you do and ignore your wishes, Linda listens to me. \r\n\r\nWhen I go to Blade for a haircut, I always admire everyone else's haircuts, too, which I've always thought is a sign of a high quality salon.

I have gone to Linda Licocci for over 10yrs now and have not been
disappointed. I am also in the beauty industry and recommend her
to all my clients. She always delivers and makes me look good for
the recommendation. She has high standards for her work and that
of others who work within her shop. I like that. Parking is always
easy to find, food is just around the corner, and yes, there is a starbucks close! SAM

I've been going to Linda for over 15 yrs. She's an amazing hair artist. She really understand hair, and she teaches you how to handle it as well. She even picked up a special brush for me. I have very thick wavy hair and Linda has no problem with it. When she's done with my hair, I look and feel like a movie star. Tonight, when I walked in the door, my husband grabbed the camera and snapped a bunch of photos. I carry Linda's card with me in my wallet, because I am asked so often as to who cuts my hair.\r\nMy husband had no idea I colored my hair until around our 3yr. wedding anniversary. That's how good she is.\r\nI have Linda on my speed dial. Not only is Linda an amazing hairdresser, she's an amazing person, and I really enjoy my time with her. Do yourself and your hair a favor - look no further. Pick up the phone and call her. You won't be sorry. Oh, book an appt. at the same time with Amy. She waxed my eyebrows as well, and they look fantastic! Last, don't overlook her shoes - she's got the most amazing collection of \r\nplatforms.\r\n\r\n\r\n
