After going through several different Natural Haircare stylist, I found this jewel. I was so fed up with the type of service I had been getting and the unprofessionalism I was dealing with so, I googled Natural Hair Care and found this establishment. \n\nWhen I first called, I explained that I was looking for someone to assist me with Locks maintenance and they put Lauren on the phone. From the first conversation, she seemed pleasant, knowledgeable, and very professional. (trying not to write a long drawn out review he it goes)\n\nI live in Racine, WI and the shop is in Libertyville, IL (Gurnee, IL) --approx. 36 miles from where I live. Which is over a 45 min drive one way. My first trip to Lauren was just for her to do a consultation. The very next day I was sitting in her chair for my appointment. When I walked in Lauren, with the smile as bright as the sunshine, greated me and was ready to began her services. The owner walked around the shop offering coffee/tea with cookies. This was a great start to my morning.\n\nLauren was talking to me, explaining what she would do to take care of my locks, and took her time with my locks. She gave it that gentle touch that ONLY a PROFESSIONAL could give.\n\nOk bottom line.......LAUREN @ EssenceVIP is your GURL (yea I said it GURL not GIRL) If you want that personal touch with great service, knowledge and most importantly PROFESSIONALISM

I took my 12 year old to Essence VIP, this was our second visit and they don't disappoint! They are extremely professional and prompt . My daughter received and press and curl because I'm not eager to jump on the relaxer train, not to worry after Teresa worked her magic, you would have sworn it was a relaxer, the hair was light , shiny, and not weighed down with heavy oils, I was also impressed with their usage of Malibu Wellness product's they got rid of Hard water build up on her hair! Thank you so much!\nCruickshank Family

Hello, I just moved to Waukegan and am looking for a new salon. I have been relaxing my hair for the past two years but before that I was natural and only pressing my hair. I decided to stop putting relaxers in my hair because I noticed my hair started breaking off and thinning. I have decided to go back to just pressing my hair but I know I need to cut some off before I begin this process. Would you guys be able to help me?

I was tried of doing my hair myself. So I looked on the internet and found ESSENCEVIP. The website got my attention and it was in Gurnee where I live. I made an appointment. I have natural hair and did not want to put chemicals in my hair. When I walked out of ESSENCEVIP my hair looked and felt like I just got a perm. Thank you Teresa and Romie. Great job! I will be back.

After relocating to Illinois. I was in dire search of finding a professional and capable hair stylist/salon. After six months of searching, I found Essence VIP online. I received an appointment the same day and upon my arrival I did not have to wait a minute past my appointment before I was ushered in by one of the assistants for my shampoo. The experience was great! From the shamooing to the cut and style, Teresa knew exactly what I needed and did not disappoint! The atmosphere at Essence VIP was amazing and the staff were pleasant and professional...something I have not received since arriving here. I will certainly recommend them to others. Thanks Teresa!

Simply amazing! Yesterday was my second appointment at Essence VIP and I am very, very pleased. I moved here from Florida a little over a year ago and have been desperately searching for someone who would take the time to get to know my hair, take care of my hair as well as style my hair. I was also looking for a salon with a pleasant and professional environment. I found all I had been searching for at EssenceVIP. My stylist is Terez and she is wonderful! She truly knows her stuff. She really does specialize in hair care. She has answers to the questions I have about my hair. She's kind, she doesn't make you feel uncomfortable, she takes her time with you and gets to know you and your hair and that is something that is hard to find. I wish I had found her a year and a half ago. I found her online on a Sunday. I called the number on the website thinking I was going to get a voicemail and to my surprise I got her. She listened to me and we made an appointment for me to come in to see her. I am so happy that I found her. The assistants there are also awesome! They are very kind, thoughtful and professional. I think I've found a home for my hair. I can already see the improvement in my hair just after two visits. I feel so blessed to have found EssenceVIP. I was out of options and didn't know what I was going to do before I found them. For you ladies with short hair and looking for someone who can cut , style and take care of your hair- Terez embodies it all! :-)\r\n\r\nThanks so much for what you do and having a presence online. Had it not been for your website, I would have never found you. \r\n\r\nMany blessings and continued success!!!\r\nRosita\r\n

Essence VIP is a great hair salon. The staff is professional and my hair looks and feels great every time I visit. The shampoo girls are great, they practically put me to sleep, it's so soothing. \r\n\r\nI have to say that I love that I can ask questions about maintenance and problems. Terez is fantastic about answering questions about my biggest concerns(running or swimming style maintenance) and has given great suggestions and tips for upkeep.\r\n\r\nChantay Morris\r\n\r\nI thank you and my hair thanks you!!! \r\n

My 13 y/o daughter has been begging me to let her get her hair relaxed for quite some time. She is biracial with a very full head of fine S-curls that never seem to get longer, just tighter as her hair grows. Her curls are beautiful and I do not want her to chemically straighten her hair. \n\nWe went to Essence at the recommendation of my girlfriend. She told us about the salon and the Keratin treatment that they used to make blow-outs and flat ironing easier. Typically, it takes me nearly two hours to flat iron my child's hair.\n\n I spoke with Ms. Terez to book an appointment and was able to get my daughter in quickly - she worked around MY schedule! When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by the staff. My daughter was quickly taken back, Ms. Terez and company were friendly and made my daughter feel welcome. Ms. Terez discussed the process, answered our questions and gave feedback on the condition of Zo?'s hair. \n\nI left to run errands and when I returned, my daughter was smiling from ear to ear with silky straight hair that was stunning! We were both very pleased with the outcome leaving the shop, but I had no idea how that was only the beginning of how pleased I would be!\n\nIt is now 5 months later (I'm sorry to say this because I promised to write a review much earlier) and with bi-weekly cleansing and flat-ironing (with daily touch-ups), and trims about every 8 weeks, Zo?'s hair STILL looks fabulous, straightens easily, and has grown over two inches! (And to make mom happy, she still wear her curls every now and then, they still look great.)\n\nI'm going to be calling for another treatment appointment next month. The Keratin treatment is a little on the pricey side, but again, it's been 5 months since her last treatment. \n\nI am very pleased with Essence VIP. \n-The salon is well maintained and the atmosphere is relaxing. \n-The staff is professional, friendly and knowledgeable. \n-Service is fast - there isn't 'more heads than hands' and your needs are attended to throughout your service. \n-Scheduling is easy; appointment times are varied to accommodate clients' schedules.\n

I am thrilled to finally find a salon that specializes in black hair care. Terez is excellent with taking care of your hair. Prior to moving to the Lake County area, I had worn micro- braids for over a year to go back natural which ended in a disaster. Terez welcomed me as a new client and in only about 6 months, my hair is back healthy again. It is so good to get your hair done in a clean, nice environment. I have two girls who I also bring to be serviced and we are always done within a couple of hours total for all three of us. My only complaint is that I want to get my hair done to often because the shampoo's are so relaxing, and I work out and sweat a lot. But it never fails, I always have people saying stop and comment how they love my hair, even on the of week.

I am very excited to write a review for Essence VIP in Gurnee. To be honest in all my years of visiting black hair salons in major cities this was one of my most pleasant visits. I have been living in Lake County for 8 years and have not found a hair salon within 20 minutes of my home till now. First the salon is very tastefully decorated, extremely clean and the ambience is great with soothing music in the background. Today was my first visit with an appointment for 10:30am. I was greeted as I walked in the door and was in a chair getting my hair prepped for a relaxer by 10:31am. I loved the way things worked like clockwork, as one process is finished you are on to the next. Sitting under the dryer does not feel like you are doing it just so the stylist can work on someone else. The lady (Maude) that washed, relaxed and rinsed my hair was very friendly and made light conversation which definitely helped to pass the time. Her relaxing hair massage was enough to make me want to stay put for awhile. I came prepared with a novel, I-Pod and puzzle and did not get to really start any because I was constantly being taken care of. Terez was my stylist and she took the time to learn about what my goals were for my hair and also advise on techniques, products and procedures I could do to keep my hair in good shape. She seems more like a friend I knew for years when in fact it was our first personal encounter. I love my haircut and feel like a new woman! I would definitely suggest this salon to any and all friends and I will be making frequent appointments. I should note that you don?t see any of the stylists sitting around eating their breakfast or lunch in your view or tending to their children or focusing on TV or chatting on cellphones or even long term conversations with other stylists. You truly feel respected as the client while in this salon and isn?t that what you should feel when you are spending your money?!

I'm so glad I ran across Essence VIP's website on the internet. I've been living in the Lake Villa/Gurnee area for over a year and had been looking for a salon that wasn't too far away and that knew how to take care of a black woman's hair....very hard to find in my neighborhood. So, when I called the shop, Terez (the ownder) asked me great questions about the current condition of my hair and what my goal was for my hair. I wasn't quite sure of my goal (other than for it to be healthy) but I let her know that I work out often. I just wasn't sure what to do with it because my short cut was growing out and I needed something new, cute and easy. Two (2) days later, I went in for my first appointment. I was a bit nervous. After all, it had been an extremtly long time since I had someone take care of my hair. Terez schooled me on proper care of my hair after workouts and how to maintain it in between visits. My relaxer and haircut turned out wonderful! I was comfortable, I trusted my stylist and enjoyed the warm atmosphere....felt right at home! I am extremely picky about who works on my hair and Terez and her staff put me right at ease. Essence VIP is a Winner!!!!

I was glad to find a local hairdresser. Finding someone to do your hair well is hard.\n\nI don't like harsh chemicals or heavy processes done to my hair. At Essence they are able to do whatever you want to do with your hair. I like to wear my in a wash and go style. The owner Terez, did exactly what I wanted and I got compliments all weekend.\n\nThe staff is very nice. They spend time on each customer. The shampoo was like a spa treatment (very relaxing). \n\nI'm really happy to find a salon that can do all kinds of hair well and the prices are very reasonable!

I am not one who is easily impressed by things or people who should do what they do well anyway; I was though impressed with the entire staff at Essence Vip hair salon. The shop is very appealing to the eye, clean and organized. The staff was exceptionally professional and polite from the beginning to the end of my appointment .\n\nThis was my first visit to the salon on 9/17/10 and the salon's propertier and my stylist Mz. Terez was great. This is a salon that I can see taking care of all of my hair care needs. I will be back! ( I cannot remember your name for sure, I think Romie? you took care of me with my relaxer,etc....you were absolutely great, thank you)\n\n

I met the owner Therese about five years ago at the shop's former location in North Chicago. Due to some commuting issues, I had to find a salon in Gurnee, and started frequenting a much larger, impersonal, well-known salon. One of the few treasures in that salon was Amanda who was my stylists for a good three years before she left that salon. \r\n\r\nI walked into Essence VIP looking for a new stylist since no one at the other salon quite matched Amanda in skill nor ""personality,"" and lo and behold: I re-discovered Amanda! She is by far one of the best stylists to touch my hair. I trust her implicitly, and I am always satisfied with the outcome. If I ever win the lottery, Terez is going to lose a sytlist, since I am going to hire Amanda as my personal daily stylist! ;)\r\n\r\nI am not very adventurous with my hair, and I usually get a shampoo and style for my long, ever thinning hair, but I have seen Amanda create some beautiful, complicated styles with other clients. She does a wonderful job with my hair!\r\n\r\nAll the women at EssenceVIP (especially Therese, the owner) seem to enjoy their craft. There is a true sense of comaderie amongst the women and the clients, which creates a very relaxing, jovial ambiance and a thoroughly enjoyable experience. \r\n\r\nI would highly recommend EssenceVIP to anyone looking for a unique salon specializing in haircare that complements the many facets/textures of our community. \r\n\r\n

I have been looking for a salon like this for years. I like Essence VIP because they care about your hair. Nancy does my hair. And had I met her when I first moved to the Chicago area, my hair would have been blessed well before now. Thank you Essence VIP and thank you Nancy. Please, everyone, you have to try Essence VIP. There is none better. Ask for NANCY!! Sharon

I get my hair done on a weekly basis and I love the service that I receive when I am at Essence. The experience starts with a warm and pleasant greeting when you enter; followed by a fantastic shampoo. Ending with the best hair care service that I have found in years; provided by Amanda. Amanda gives me more than a hair style, she makes sure my hair is healthy. I feel lucky to get both.... finally. I receive compliments on my hair all the time and I know it is because of the consistent and EXCELLENT service that I receive from Amanda. SHE IS THE BEST!!

I recently had my hair micro braided by Romie at Essence. She was very professional and considerate of her customer. During the braiding session, I was pleasantly surprised how I had no pain vs when I have had my hair braided at the African shops where I have been in extreme pain.The braides were still tight but I did not have headaches or pain. I had the hair style for one week now and I am still getting compliments.

Amanda is my stylist at Essence. Amanda is amazing. When I go to the salon I don't have to tell her what to do to my hair. I go into the salon and allow her to create. She never disappoints me. Amanda also does my 12 year old daughters hair. My daughter does not have chemicals in her hair and Amanda works well with JoJo's natural hair. My 14 year old son has a box cut and it is three colors. Amanda colored his hair and he is always getting compliments. I love my weekly experience at essence; definately a 5 star salon.

I've been a client of the proprieter, Teresa (Terez) Zigler for more than 20 years. She has always been the very best in the far north suburbs...and I've tried many others. First of all, you can recognize a ""Terez"" hair style. She is the very best at short cuts and all types of color. I've worn my hair very short to shoulder length and she ""works with me"" no matter what my preference at any point in time. I need cut, color and special handling of a sensitive scalp. I have very thick, course hair but every relaxer I have tried burned my scalp. Terez has one that gets me straight but does not burn. My hair is always healthy and strong.

I've been coming to Terez for about two years, and I could not ask for more. Regardless of the role of those working in this salon, everyone is a professional, while at the same time providing a very comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. I have not been disappointed in any of the services I've received, but on the contrary, I've often been very surprised. I've had my hair cut and color treated, and the responses from those who see me, leads me to believe that it will be some time before I go back to my natural color. And all of this at extremely reasonable pricing! This place is a keeper!

I recently found Essence VIP online. I emailed Terez explaining the hairloss I endured due to wearing hair extensions for 14 years and the hardship of having ezcema. Terez emailed me back immediately explaining in detail the products she provides that would help me with my damaged hair and scalp sensitivity. I was fortunate enough to get an appointment the following week and was delighted. I couldn't believe the healthy state she returned my damanged hair to. My husband and kids were quite surprised. I found Terez and the staff at Essence VIP to be very caring and professional. I was impressed when she noted the products she used on my hair and kept a record of the styling she did for me. It was great! I felt as if I was in the best hands that I could be in. Thanks so much Terez.

Pros: Best Salon Ever!!

A couple of years ago, I moved from New York City to the Chicago metropolitan area; however, I was wearing an afro and did not have need of a stylist. The online reviews for Eseence VIP and Terez were all really good and I decided to make an appointment. It was one of the best decisions that I could have made. Terez and her staff are very professional and timely. I arrived shortly before my appointment and was helped as soon as I walked in the door. Since I was transitioning from an afro back into a perm, I was unsure as to what type of hair cut I really wanted. Terez made that decision and started cutting. As she cut, you could see my hair start to take shape. She gave me a style that is low maintenance, versatile and looks very professional. Terez explained the condition of my hair and then gave me instructions on upkeep, including hair care tips for working out, and she recommended products for home use.\r\n\r\nEssence is a beautiful salon with a calm atmosphere and a clean environment. I did not have to spend my entire day in the salon and my style had plenty of shine and the cut was absolutely beautiful. Ever after leaving the salon, I was able to maintain my style with ease and my hair has kept its shine. I recommend Essence and Terez if you are looking for a hair salon where you do not have to spend the entire day in the salon, professional and clean. Terez knows her business and has a calm and soothing presence that immediately puts one at ease.

Since moving to the North Suburbs 7 years ago, I have had a hard time finding a good hair salon. I started going to Essence VIP in the summer of 2007. I was recovering from surgery and my hair was in terrible condition. When I walked into the salon, Terez diagnosed the problems, applied the right conditioners and I walked out with my hair looking better than it had in years. I've been going to her ever since. The shop on Milwaukee Ave. in Gurnee is a beautiful and serene. You never have to wait for service, the staff is friendly and professional. I'm glad I finally found Essence VIP. It's the best in the North Suburbs. Thank you, Terez. Keep up the good work!!

I have been going to Terez/Essence ever since I was in high school. She has always provided great haircare and my hair is very healthy. It was only that I went to a salon with cheaper prices did I realize how you get what you pay for. My hair got damaged by two other beauticians, but Terez always knew how to repair my hair. I always get compliments on my hair wherever I go. She is great and so is Sam! I hope she never retires or I don't know what I will do for haircare. Keep up the great work and I will see you soon for my next appointment. Monica G.

I started going to Essence VIP in June of 2007. I can't believe how wonderful my looks. Every place I go, people are constantly asking me ""who does your hair?"". Terez is very professional. She not only cares about your hair, she also cares about your health. She believes that your hair can only look good if you take of yourself from the inside out. I really appreciate how she listens to what I want to do with my hair and then advises me on whether or not it will be good for my hair. Samantha is also very helpful with suggestions on color. She really does a great relaxer also!! ""You go Sam!"" I will be a lifetime customer of Terez and Essence VIP. \r\n\r\nSarah Taylor\r\n
