My former hair stylist moved out of town and I had no idea where to go! I got many recommendations from friends and work pals, and did a lot of online searching, but I never got a great feeling about anyone or any salon. I spent over a year just letting my hair grow too long not knowing what to do! Then I came across reviews for Salon de Vive. Something in my gut told me that this was the place to go and I booked an appointment with Vi, the owner. That was at least 4 years ago and I have become a most loyal client and fan of Vi. She is insane good. I actually never had anyone take the time she did, and still does, to discuss in detail not just the type of cut I want, but what look I am going for, what I want to achieve, how I live with and work with my hair, my lifestyle, etc. She gets it! And she always remembers our last visit, what we did then, and what we might adjust this time. Her cuts are ALWAYS impeccable! and they grow out beautifully! almost too much so that I tend to not get my hair cut as often ( I do keep a longer style) And her Color is always perfect. She actually figured out the color that matches my natural hair color almost so exactly that you cannot tell when the color grows out! I can go a longer time than usual without a touch up thanks to her brilliance! Plus she is always warm and kind and really takes time with you, and gives what feels like very special attention. I feel very well taken care of, even spoiled. She is truly a gift and a pleasure! As long as she is in business I will be her client! Thanks Vi, you're simply the Best!

I have been getting my hair cut, and highlighted by Vi for the past 20 Years! She also did my hair for my wedding and all the weddings/parties I attended. Can never imagine getting my hair done by anyone else. I will Die if I LOOSE her. Vi is my GIRL! She always listens to what you want and always gives her honest opinion and recommendations on new styles..
My last visit I got a GLOBAL KERATIN Treatment done on my hair. Its turned out fabulous. I recommend this for anyone that has very curly hair and would like to try get the straight look. I still have a ton of body for having curly and thick hair however, it takes less time blow drying and not to mention my hair is sooo silky soft! Highly recommended. Salon De Vive is the place to go!
Luv ya Vi!

Carlo has been cutting, coloring my hair for over 10 plus years now.

He does great cuts and great color, but he gives me an awesome blowdry. He can get the fine little fly away hairs I have on my forehead so perfect. Highly recommend!

He is quite enjoyable and will give you a great conversation.

I'm very, very picky about my thick, long, curly, frizzy, crazy head of hair. I came to Salon De Vive on recommendation from a client at the Aveda Salon I went to in NYC and met Carlo shortly after moving to Chicago 9 months ago. Carlo always listens to me about what works for my head of hair (years of dealing with this craziness has given me lots of rules!!) and he makes good suggestions about how to make my life easier and my look prettier. I trust him implicitly and he is endlessly patient with the time and effort it takes to color, cut and style my hair.

He has taken my dark NYC head of hair to a lovely shade of Goldy Brown and his cuts are impeccable. After the color change in particular, I received so many compliments and several of my girlfriends asked me who my stylist was. It doesn't hurt either that he is also a delight to spend time with and is perfectly adorable!! I wouldn't use any other stylist!

Carlo has been cutting my hair for over 10 years now, when I was living in New York I even flew back to Chicago for haircuts/color because I didn't trust anyone else with my hair!

If you're sick and tired of telling your stylist that you want your hair to look a certain way, and walking out of the salon wishing you had a bag over your head - COME TO CARLO!!!

He's a great stylist because he listens to exactly what you want, and provides suggestions when you want a change but you're just not sure what you want. His technical skills are beyond any other stylist I've ever encountered, he's cut my hair short and long, and it always looks beyond amazing! He takes the time to perfectly style your hair, and even more importantly, teaches you how to achieve that same look at home. Carlo has shown me how to take my hair from pin-straight, to sexy waves and everything in between! And yes, he is a master at color - I get so many compliments on how deep, rich, and shiny that my hair is!

In addition to all of this, he is so warm and welcoming - you'll never feel uncomfortable sitting in his chair!

Don't take my word for it though - if you're sick and tired of mediocre cuts, come and see Carlo! You won't regret it!

A great hair stylist is hard to find ... and I am pretty high maintenance when it comes to my hair. Besides becoming easily bored with my hair, I am always looking for new ideas, and I want a sassy, on-trend look that still is professional. A tall order, which Stefanie has fulfilled for the past 5 years!! She consistently gives a fantastic haircut that continues to look great for months!! I recently referred a friend that was unhappy with her hair to Stefanie .... she loved the whole experience and cannot stop thanking me! Stefanie has a real gift, she is priceless!!

I have been going to Stefaine for years because she can actually decipher all the crazy ideas I have for my hair and create a coherent, working style that suits me. I have had every color and cut known to mankind (red, blue, purple, platinum blonde, brown, black, highlights, lowlights short, pixie, razored, long, fringe, bobs, layers etc.) and she has made each style look amazing.

I will often bring in pictures and sketches of the type of hair that I want (sometimes just a description) and we collaborate and create cutting edge styles. I have said make me look like a Japanese Anime character or make me look like Reese Witherspoon and she has... and will continually,...with a smile. She is one of the most happiest, friendliest, and versatile stylist in Chicago and I highly recommend her!

I have very long curly hair, it has always been a nightmare getting my hair cut, especially for a trim. I'll ask for one or two inches cut, next thing I know, 5 inches are gone. When Stefanie first cut my hair, it was done exactly they way I wanted it and I've been going to her ever since.

Recently I volunteered for a fashion show and asked Stefanie to do my hair and make-up for it. She did a superb job and also gave me honest opinions and tips on my outfits for the show. Much appreciated, she's got style!

I love Stephanie at Salon De Vive. She is the best with color! My color was really messed up from me doing it (badly) myself. She fixed it and it looks great! She also does great cuts and awesome updos. And she's SO sweet. Highly recommend!

I have also been going to Emmett for years and will never go anywhere else. He is so knowledgable on cuts and style. I know that I am in good hands when I go and am able to fully focus on the entertainment gossip magazines. Guilty pleasure, but that is all part of the experience.

Recently, I had some health problems that affected my hair and I knew he would be able to address what I should do with my hair and style.

Going to Emmett is much more than a good haricut or die, it is a relaxing experience that is quite enjoyable.

I have been going to Salon de Vive for years and Emmett Hodge is my hairdresser. We is fantastic! He is knowledgeable in color, cuts, styling, and makeup. He is also honest. If I present an idea for my hair, he is always honest about how he thinks it will look. I really appreciate that. He is also very personable as is everyone who works at this salon. I always feel comfortable coming into the salon. I recommend this salon, and especially Emmett!

I've wanted to go lighter for a long time but had not found the right stylist to do it. I have very dark hair naturally and I've dyed it many times with reds and browns. Went to Carlo, he's amazing. He took the time to make sure he knew what I wanted and what I'd done previously with color. Results completely exceeded my expectations (I was only 80% sure I could pull off the lighter look).

In sum, very talented staff, willing to take the extra time, and great atmosphere. Will definitely return to Carlo.

I am a working mom, so I don't have alot of time to take out for myself anymore but when I do, Salon de Vive is where I go for "Me" time...

I go to Stefanie to cut my hair so I always get a great hair cut and she's the best for eyebrow wax as well. I not only enjoy talking to my stylist but socializing with the other stylists is part of the fun experience too. I always leave with a good laugh and a great hair cut!

After moving from LA, I was having a very difficult time finding a salon to meet my standards for color and creative cuts. After trying a dozen salons in the Chicago area, I read the reviews on Salon de Vive and decided to give this salon a whirl. During my initial meeting with Vi, she took her time in asking me a lot of questions about my hair, previous cuts, and the over all look I was going for. She was confident in giving her opinion and ideas when I asked. I asked her to cut my very long red hair off and to take it back to a vibrant blonde. WOW!!! I walked out of there feeling like a million bucks-which is the feeling that I was used to having with my old salon in LA. What a relief to find her! My haircut was like artwork and I am once again getting compliments from random people on the streets...asking where I get my hair done. The color is vibrant and lasts months....it never dulls and when the cut grows out, it still has an amazing shape. I drive 1 1/2 hours in traffic to get my hair done now, but it is so worth the time and money to have it done right the first time! The only drawback is the lack of parking.

I have been going to Vi for more years than I can remember. She is an absolute artist with color. Really listens, understands your "issues" and always has great suggestions. The salon is beautiful and very comfortable. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend to everyone. Enjoy!

On my list of things to do once in my life was have the courage to wear a pixie cut. That was no small feat considering that in 43 years I never had my hair above my chin and, at the time of my cut, my ponytail alone was 13" long. I approached it like I do most tasks - researched first. Found photos and read articles about facial features and short hair. After reading reviews for many stylists I wandered in to Salon de Vive. I had walked out of at least one salon where no enthusiasm for the task at hand was shown. Not so in Salon de Vive.
Emmett warmly greeted me and sat me down to talk. It was immediately clear to me that he knew his stuff. I know my hair, which is thick and curly but also dries straight very well. Emmett seemed instinctively to know my hair as well. But more, he cared about why I was doing it, who I was, whether I was sure, and if the style would suit my head and face. That day he gave me a fabulous cut AND took time to explain how to work it.
A couple days later when I had concerns over a color I applied myself (calling in a panic) he took the time to call me back and talk me down. I am having immense fun with my re-invented look, due, in no small part, to Emmett. And the price - you wont find better in Chicago for what you get.

My wife and I moved and we must now drive over 1.5 hours to Salon de Vive to have Emmett cut our hair but it is well worth the trip. My wife doesn't get her hair cut too often so we only go to Salon de Vive when she is ready for a hair cut. We just went yesterday, 6/7/08, and it was another great experience. Emmett is one of those rare individuals who just knows what is going to look good on you. I would highly suggest that you put your faith in Emmett and just let him work his magic without telling him what you want - I think you would be very pleased with the results. The salon itself is trendy, clean, and bright with lots of natural light - just being there makes you feel great. Get there about 15 minutes early because finding a parking spot may take a little time but it's usually not too bad. One other note - my wife and I have two children ages 2 & 1. There is a park just a couple of blocks away. I get my haircut first since it doesn't take too long and then I take the kids to the park while my wife gets her haircut. It works out great. I've been going to Emmett off-and-on for nearly seven years now and I haven't had a bad haircut yet.

I found Salon de Vive off of Citysearch as I was looking for a place to get a really nice guys haircut. I found it! Vi is incredibly talented and sweet! All the other staff I spoke with were really friendly and made me quite comfortable. The salon is very cozy and comfortable as well. You'll definitely leave feeling as though you could have paid so much more than you actually did. Highly recommended!

Pros: Everyone is friendly, the ambience, products used

I went here for extensions, which I got to make my hair fuller. The stylist told me that the extensions would match great with my hair and be the same texture. When she put them in, they looked great, but after I got home and washed them, the texture of the hair completely changed (they must have been straightened before they were put in). I didn't like them at all because it took me hours to style my hair in order to blend them in, and I didn't feel like that was worth 600 dollars. A week later, I went back to the salon to have them removed and told them about how I was dissappointed. I wasn't expecting my money back or anything, but the least they could have done was taken them out for free. Instead they charged me full price to get them removed! Not good customer service if you ask me. I wouldn't recommend this place for extensions if you are looking.

I have been in the market for a new stylist; I recently moved to chicago. I was refered to Vi at salon de vive so i looked them up on city search and Vi had quite a few amazing reviews; so i thought i'd give her a try. I have to say that my hair looks the best it ever has. I have my hair colored reddish and stylist always either make too dark with violet tones or too bright very unnatural looking. Well Vi gave me the best color ever a perfect shade of red very natural looking i feel like i look like i was born with this color. Look forward to my next visit.

Um, okay. I've never paid $70 for just a hair cut. Not only that, but I specifically asked the bald man cutting my hair to not layer the front to much because i didn't like how it looked when done that way. Not only did he still do it, but he didn't even blow-dry my hair all the way! What exactly did I pay for? A style I didn't want and a wet head, thanks. I wouldn't go back, there are way better places in the city.

Pros: clean and on time

Cons: over priced, did exactly what i said not to, and didn't even finish it

Once you go to Salon DeVive, you won't go anywhere else. Vi, owner, and the rest of the staff, are perfectionists in every service they provide. When you first walk in, you can see the artistic eye exhibited in the decor -- very comfortable yet elegant. The highlights and coloring always look natural. The stylists will work with you on cuts, taking suggestions; but being very honest and offering alternatives that you'll love and thank them for. I've had people on the street asking me where I had my hair done -- THAT GOOD!!!

You must go and experience this salon. Vi has been highlighting and cutting my hair for 17 years! She's the best. Her coloring technique makes me look like a natural blonde and the cut always get me compliments.

Plus, Stephanie gives a wonderful facial using Aveda products that they also sell. Usually I find facials painful and have breakouts later. Not with Stephanie. She has a gentle touch and is very knowledgeable about what she is doing and will recommend products if asked.

I drive an hour one way to this salon that's how much I depend on and value Salon de Vive. The entire staff make my visit a relaxing and rejuvenating experience with their expertise in style and application.

Emett Hodge is THE BEST! I've paid $300 for highlights and haircuts at gold coast salons and come back disappointed EVERYTIME. Until I looked up city search and found Emett. I'm never going to anyone else as long as he's around! He takes his time with you, tries to get a feel for what you want and has a gift - he knows what works based on your hair texture, shape of your face etc.And he's a very easy going conversationalist. No rush. Every time I go to him for a haircut, my collegues tell me the next day I look like a rock star! Even my husband (who has the opinion, how much skill does it take to cut a guy's hair) asks me to make appointments with him for haircuts!

I found this salon on citysearch when I was looking to get my hair extensions. Vi had great recommendations so I went in for a consulation. She matched my hair color and type perfectly. My hair is curly and my extensions could be worn curly or blown out straight for however I wanted to wear my hair. I just went back the other day and got them taken out and was scared my hair might be damaged but Vi took them out, it was totally painless and she also gave me a great cut that I got a bunch of compliments on last night. Needless to say if you are in search of affordable great extensions, this is the place to go.

I've been a performing musician since I was a teenager. So I've been doing a lot of different colors and styles to my hair (which is not easily obtained by hair dressers) by my hairdresser cousin, Justina, for 10 years. Three years ago my cousin left the hair business and I was not able to get my hair done by her again. I was worried because I only trusted her to color and cut my hair. Luckily my friend Bernadette recommended me to Lina at, Salon de Vive (formally, Accent Salon). I was apprehensive about someone new, but after talking with Lina about the different blonde, copper, and even blue hair hues I wanted, she quickly responded with confidence and trust, and ensured me I'd get what I envisioned. Since that glorious new found hair day, I've been only coming to Lina to get my hair done. She takes her time to ensure everything is done properly, and that you're happy with the results. She's as wonderful as her excellent, artistic hairdressing shows. I'm so glad I found Lina and the rest of the very nice staff at, Accent Salon. Thank you!!!

This is a wonderful salon. It has a very cozy feeling - you always feel welcome. The hairstylists are all very down to earth and very very friendly. But the best part is my hair always turns out AWESOME! My hairstylist, Lina, is fantastic - she really knows what color highlights look best on me and what hair style works for me. And I should mention the prices are so incredibly reasonable for a salon with their type of service, knowledge and experience. I am glad that I found this salon.

I moved to chicago almost 2 yrs ago & have been looking for a hair salon, finally my search has come to an end. I have tried many places but have not been satisfied. I made an appt with Vi after reading all the reviews. She was great!!!!.....She cut, colored, highlighted & dried my hair herself (& shes the owner of the place!!!).......I took pictures to show her & she listened to all my demands. I eneded up with great hair!!!.......u have to just see her new place to appreciate the artist in her, she designed it herself........also the rest of the staff is great, extremely polite & courteous......& yet another plus is the chairs u sit in, they r so comfy, have a built in massage, heated calf rests!.....what else can u want!....I'm definitely going back.

Stephanie has been coloring and cutting my hair for over 4 years! She does such an incredible job matching my natural color to cover my gray hair that people don't believe me when I tell them I color my hair to cover grays! When it comes to cutting my hair Stephanie knows just what to do. I tell her what changes I want and she works with me until I am satisfied. The rest of the staff is wonderful, too. I wouldn't think of going to any other salon. And you can't beat the reasonalbe prices!

I was looking for a new look and took a chance on Accent salon after reading a little on city search. It really paid off! Vi gave me the most beautiful hilites and low lites and a great flattering cut. I'm soooo excited to find a stylist that specializes in both cut and color. I can't say enough great things about my experience. Great results, great service, great salon!

I came to this salon after reading about them on city search. I walked in and was greated by smiling, good looking faces and was offered something to drink. It was a great experience already. I had an appointment with Vi. After a thorough consultation chatting about my hair and what i've liked and disliked in the past. I was on my way to becomming a beautiful chocolate brown! I love my new color and cut; i feel the best I've ever felt. She is amazing; as was the whole salon experience!!

I have been a loyal client of Vi's for at least 8 years and i have to say she is the best colorist in the business.
About a year ago i tried a new salon in the suburb (that i moved to about 3 years ago) because it was getting to be alittle difficult driving to the city since having two babies. Well never again! Vi is the only stylist that will ever color and cut my hair she is the best and well worth the drive. I will drive any distance.
