This is the best hair salon that I've found in the entire area. I think I've tried about five since I moved here. I always love my hair and the service is second to none. My stylist takes such good care of me. She's such a sweet heart. She does a great blow-out job.

Great haircut from a terrific stylist and person. Very enjoyable experience. The stylist listens to you, asks questions, makes suggestions, and does exactly what you want. So hard to find that.

I went here for the first time the other day and I have to say...I love my hair. I was very happy with the end result. My hair lady really listened to what I wanted and it didn't cost a whole lot.

Dana was excellent. I scheduled with a friend who was getting color, and made both our appointments for her service. She could have easily told me it wasn't going to work -- but instead had her other appointments come in early so I could finish at the same time. Additionally, my hair cut is absolutely fabulous. Thanks again Dana!

One of the best salon/spa's I've ever been to. Loved all of the staff members. My haircut is absolutely beautiful and feels so great. I made another appointment for next month. See you then.

I go to Gordon's to get awesome haircuts and am usually so busy that I hadn't tried the spa section, but now I have. I got the 45 minute acne relief facial to help me manage this stubborn problem. It was so relaxing and I could just feel the stress seeping out of my body. I'll be going back in a week for another treatment.

I'm not afraid to step into a salon and spa filled with beautiful women doing there pamper thing. I have shoulder length hair and am very particular about keeping it in shape. They do a real good job with that here. I make my appointments with Abby and I feel very comfortable with her and doubt I will ever go anywhere else.

I had heard about Gordon's from my sister-in-law at a family dinner. I was having issues finding just the right place to for my haircut needs. So I made an appointment with Pam and went in for the shampoo, deep condition and a new edgy shorter cut. It was wonderful.

I had a short hospital stay last week which left me with limited mobility in my arms. I had neglected to wash my hair because I couldn't lift my arms like that and my head was starting to get itchy. My sister, who is a client of Gordon's called them since she had an appointment and asked if they could fit me in. They said that they would wash my hair and would not charge me for it. All I had to do is tip the shampoo person. I just want to thank them for their kindness.

I have long, straight, and black hair. I just keep it very natural looking and simple. After my last haircut I am never staying like that again. I now have wonderful layers and shaved tips. I have a much edgier hair cut and I am loving it.

I made an appointment to get my make-up. I had my sisters wedding to go to, and I wanted to look really pretty. I loved my make up. It looked really settled, and yet I looked completely different than when I do my own make up. I felt like I got celebrity make up done. I was very, very, happy.

Well, I was totally satisfied. I just sat down, and I barely had to describe what I wanted to try- she and I were already on the same page. She didn't do anything extreme, just something pretty natural that does seem to work well for me.

Love this salon! Amanda was the girl that cut my hair, she cut my hair exactly how I pictured it. The staff really listened to what I wanted. Glad I found a good salon, definitely will be back here once I need another haircut :-)

Very very impressed! This place was fantastic. From the moment I walked in until the time I left I had a great experience. I was offered tea upon my arrival and was only waiting for 2 minutes. I came in for a haircut and it turned out amazing. I've been to several spas and this place was one of the best experiences I've had. I cannot wait to go back!

I have a lot of fine curly hair that had become more than unmanageable. They spent the time to pick my brain and figure out what i wanted. Gave me a healthy trim and a beautiful gloss that brought the life back to my hair! I will most definitely be back! Thanks!

I LOVE this salon. For years, I have bounced from hair stylist to hair stylist. I have tales of frightening hair cuts and of hair stylists that are too cocky for their and their customers' own good. But Gordon Hair Salon cured my fear of hair cuts and hair stylists.

I've been a regular client for almost a year and I am still extremely happy with Gordon Salon. I receive regular compliments on my cut. Adaku has suggested different styles for my hair and I am always impressed. As I was paying for a recent style, a client at the reception desk complimented my cut and asked who my stylist was. Adaku is the best!

I have been a Client at Gordon Salon for several years. I decided to go to the Ravinia location to avoid the HP Downtown scene. I prefer to get my color done and get out without distraction. A while ago this Ravinia location was designated as a new talent salon where stylists would get their feet wet and the prices reflected that. The downside to that was that often the services -- especially highlights would take forever and sometimes the results would just be so-so. So I switched to a more experienced stylist in the same salon and now I am paying for it big time. I guess the whole "new talent" idea went out the window and now the $ have shot back up. Last week I had a single process and 9 foils for highlights and it was a bloody fortune... $160+. Upon paying (not when I booked the appt.) I learned that a blow dry was included. The receptionist gave me a hard time about having the blow dry done on a different day. Eventually the stylist I have been going to told her just to book it. Oy.
Considering finding another place...if I am going to pay top dollar I may as well get the royal treatment. Normally I get a hand massage -- they forgot that too
