The place was so messy. The hair stylists wouldn't even pay attention to my hair or my needs, they were so loud and and inattentive. Last time I will come here. Had to tell them 3 times to get my hair right.

First off, let me just say if I could give this place 0 stars I would. My sister and I went there for the first time. She wanted to color her hair and I wanted to get an ombre look. Some of the hairdressers did NOT look like they knew what they were doing.

It took two people to brush my sister's hair and she complained that it was hurting and they were pulling on it. I could feel my hair literally breaking off too while my hairdresser was brushing my hair. She also kept jabbing my ear with her comb; it was really a painful experience. When I was done that day, I was wondering why I couldn't see any highlights in my hair. It didn't even look like she did anything to my hair. I found out that there were only a few highlights hiding UNDERNEATH my hair and plus parts of it still looked like it was straight up bleached. Like really?! This place shouldn't even exist in my honest opinion. Apparently these people do NOT know what they are doing. They just hire anyone it seems. I literally heard one of the hairdressers asking the owner "do I keep the bleach on for this long, how long"...I'm didn't go to a salon to pay $120.00 for a few highlights that aren't even colored properly and to be a first-timers guinea pig. No thank you! Save your money and hassle and go to Ulta professional hair stylists. You will get really professional results for the same price or even less!

And I don't even know where to begin with my poor sister. She was horrified about her hair. They even got bleach on her ears! My sisters hair on the other hand was just a mess. They didn't know to use a stripping agent for her hair since it was previously colored. Instead they used regular bleach first like idiots and then the stripping agent and wrecked her hair. It wasn't even brown like she wanted. It was red and so patchy and now it's so damaged.

And what's worse...I called them to get a refund. I spoke to my hairdresser who is evidently the manager. Her name is Jenine. She was so rude to me on the phone. Right when she got on the phone, she said "what's going on here?" And I asked nicely if it's possible for me to get refund. She says "no" rudely. It was just so hard for her to admit how bad of a hairdresser she was and how terrible the salon was...she couldn't admit that they made a mistake with our hair. I even told her about the bleach on my sister's ears and if I should come in to show her how red and bumpy they are just to prove the point. She kept showing me attitude and denying a refund, finally she straight up hung up on me.

RUDE PEOPLE, TERRIBLE STYLISTS! Get rid of this place ASAP. I hope they go out of business.

What happened? You lost most of your staff. I can't believe it.
Maybe some changes need to be made!

I went to Shear Express a few weeks ago after having tried other places, from Supercuts to Amato, and I had a great experience. Ann, the stylist who cut my hair, was personable and fun to talk to without seeming distracted. Moreover, she understood that I'm trying to grow out the layers in my hair, and she gave me a cut as close to the shape I want as my current length will allow. Many stylists want to put layers into my super-fine hair for volume, but Ann, bless her, looked at the picture I brought with, laughed when I said I just want my boring old straight hair back, and cut my hair as I had hoped she would. The salon is pleasant looking but not overly trendy; given the incredibly affordable price of the haircuts, I had expected the decor to be similar to that of low-priced salon chains (fluorescent lighting, white linoleum floors, etc.). As for the break room table in the middle of the floor -- I didn't see that, but the receptionist's desk is in the middle of the salon. Perhaps a stylist was grabbing a quick snack while sitting there. I'm not bothered by that. Basically, I feel that I got an excellent haircut here, especially considering the price, and I hope that more people will stop by Shear Express and give these stylists a try!

I totally do not agree with Melody S. I have been a long time client of Shear Express and I know their break room is NOT in the middle of the salon. And even if someone was eating their lunch out in the open WHO CARES! I'm sure Melody S. eats food. Heck we all eat and these girls work hard and only get to eat in between clients! Some days they do not eat till they go home! Geez cut them some slack! They are a wonderful group of talented stylist who happen to eat! As for the stylist that is getting married you are right she should have listened to your needs and then told you about how excited she is about getting married. By the way her name is Sara. In all fairness if there was a problem with the haircut you should have gone back in and asked to speak to Jen or Sue the owners. I know they would have fixed whatever problem you had. You need to lighten up Melody S.

I walked into Shear Express for the second time and completely turned off. The break room table is in the middle of the salon and a hair dresser was sitting there eating her lunch! I could not believe my eyes. Then the stylist who cut my hair was rambling on about her wedding and could not be bothered to listen to what I wanted needless to say I will be going somewhere else to have my hair recut.

Hello I just went into Shear Express for the first time and I have lived in Tinley park for 15 years. I thought the salon was very like home, the stylist that did my hair was Nikki she was great I love the cut and color that i received. I would go back again! She was very talkative and all the girls were nice. I love standing in line some where and someone asking where I get my hair done!! I tell everyone to go to Nikki!!!

I have been going to expensive salons for years and decided to give shear express a try for something different, and was pleasantly surprised. Regina styled my hair and did a wonderful job. I will definitley be back.

I've been a customer for years. This is a full service salon with a great staff of stylist. A hair cut is only $12.00 and neither myself or any of my other family members have ever had a bad cut. My daughters have had everything from their first Communion hair styles done here to their wedding styles. Always been great!! I myself have my hair color done here every 4 weeks. Very reasonable. I currently pay $52.00 to have my hair color done and that includes my hair cut and style. I tell everyone about this place. I always feel at home here.

I have been going to this salon for quite a while. I am especially pleased with Andrea. I get a great cut & good conversation. I was tired of going to some of the other area salons & constantly paying more & more. A haircut starting at $27 & now up to $40! For just a haircut & I have very short hair. Glad to have such an affordable salon in the neighborhood. You don't mind giving the hairdresser a nice tip. Try them.

Shear Express is a good, affordable option when you want to just maintain a look, i.e. get a trim or basic haircut. They'll take walk-ins and do an excellent job with kids' hair. I'd prefer a full-fledged* salon* for evening styles or coloring, but for basic maintenance it's an okay place.

I stopped at this location to get a haircut and did not have any idea what to expect. When I entered the facility was cozy and full of friendly faces. I decided I would try something new and the stylist helped me to find a style that would become me. As she started to cut my hair she mentioned the program for the Cancer Society and even volunteered to send the excess hair away for me. The prices are very affordable and I plan to go back for a trim!
