Sue has been my stylist for over 20 years. I wouldn't go anywhere else for cuts, styles, color and waxing.

This was my first time at Karena's Salon & Spa. I followed my stylist Mel there, and absolutely adore the place! Its like a high-end salon, with out the exorbitant prices! Mel fixed a hack job that had been done to my hair at a different salon in a moment of weakness, and I am so happy with the end result! My hair looks fantastic!

I've been a client for more than 15 years. I always leave feeling beautiful. Plus the prices are in line with other salons. Why go somewhere else when Karena's has it all?

I have been going to Karena's for several years now and I feel great every time I leave my appointment. I have had massages, mani/pedi's, haircuts, and even had my hair and makeup done for my wedding and haven't had any complaints! It is a great place to go.

I just recently began going to Karena's Salon in Elgin. I just LOVE it. I recommend it to everyone and have referred friends and associates to Karena's. The staff are all so personable and very helpful. It is so nice to go somewhere and be greeted with recognition when you walk in the door. My stylist's name is Mel P. and she is FANTASTIC. I recommend her for any cuts or color.

I have been going to Karena's for years. I now live in Streamwood and Karena's Salon and Spa is the best and worth the commute to Elgin. It is a wonderful salon with very friendly staff. Tomasa is my stylist and she does great cuts and is an excellent colorist. I would recommend Karena's Salon and Spa to everyone.

I have lived in Elgin almost my whole 30+ of life. Karena's Salon has always been friendly, clean, and professional. They make you feel very comfortable and welcome right from the get go. Even with a move in my near future that will take me further away from Elgin, I will be making the extra drive because Karena's is well worth it! \r

My sister-in-law suggested that I try Karena's. She is there all the time getting her nails schlacked (sp?) and swears by them. I was looking for a nice, relaxing salon to go to that was reasonable, but also had great stylists and had a clean contempory feel.\r
I had Wendy do my hair and she did a wonderful job on both the color and cut. She really took the time to figure out what I was looking for and added some suggestions too. I left loving my new hair, and I didn't have sticker shock.

Melissa is an amazing stylist and always makes me feel great after my cut and style. She also gives a great scalp massage! Jeniece is a great breath of fresh air behind the front desk, not to mention her awesome skills as a makeup artist and esthetician! The salon is always neat and clean and has a very friendly atmosphere!

I have been going to Karena's for 20 years. In fact Karena use to do my nails way back when. You will always run into someone you know. Very professional and client oriented. I love my nail technician - Shannon.

OMG! I have been going to Karen's for 5+ years now. I love it. Kellie is my stylist, but have had Laura, Melissa and Wendy also cut my hair - all did great. Took my daughter for nails b-4 recital and they did a great job. Treated her like she was very special. FWIW I always recommend this salon to friends.

I have been going to Karenas for over 10 years. I have had my hair colored and highlighted and cut and the staff is very professional and talented! I get lots of compliments from my family and friends and always seem up to date. I also have had manicures, pedicures and facials. I really enjoy them too. I don't seem to understand the other reviews about the non-english speaking. It is an english speeking salon. DId they go to the correct salon? Karena is the owner and is the friendliest person I have ever met and gives back to the community. I always recommend Karenas to anyone I meet.I recommend calling ahead for an appointment.

Have to agree with cheezeit....\r
I've been a customer for a year and have had only positive experiences at Karena's. I drive over an hour just to have Laura cut and color my hair because she's so talented and sweet. None of the salons in the Naperville area compare in customer service, as far as I'm concerned.

Hey ilanka813... are you going to try to get the book you just wrote published? Man, you have way too much time on your hands. You have been ""going there for years,"" so now you leave a review? I have also been going there a long time as well and you are way off. I have some advice for you... online dating might be a start. There is a whole big world out there. :)

I have been going to Karena's salon for years. It was always a great place and it kills me to give them only one star. Now that Karena isn't in the salon much, the stylists make their clients wait while they do their own hair. The receptionist Jackie is not helpful. If a friend of the stylists comes in to get her hair done, expect to be set to the side while they do their friends hair before yours. Karena's is going down hill. They need someone like Karena their on a daily basis to guide them on customer service. Some of the stylists take advantage of Karena's absence. \r
This is not a review on everyone who works at Karena's. The masseuse, the esthetician, and the nail stylists all still have kept Karena's level of customer service.

My wife and I have been going to Karena's for years. The location of the salon does not really allow for a lot of walk-in customers, being located in a strip mall on a road behind the Larkin Jewel, so the business is truly networked through Elgin-area residents and 100% word-of-mouth. Since the salon is always busy, I think this speaks volumes about what type of service you can expect.

Karena's well trained staff is always friendly, and although the prices may be just above average for a salon experience, it i always worth it. They are very attentive, and extremely good at whaht they do. Massages, spray tans, color specialists, haircuts,waxing etc-Karenas has it all!

Are you suffering from short, brittle, peeling nails? Do you long to have nails like the ones in the commercials? This is a local business that has attempted over the years to give you nice nails. The staff is less than friendly, hard to understand, and not client savvy. For those nails you long for, it will be worth your drive to avoid this place.

I went here once before going to a wedding and I was very pleased with my manicure. The best part was the price, this salon was much cheaper than others I have gone to in Chicago. The salon was well lit and clean inside, my manicurist didn't speak english very well but she was very skilled and I felt great after leaving. You can also get a massage here, however I did not get one at the time. I walked in on a weekday and didn't have to wait, but I would consider calling ahead on a saturday or evening.

PROS: great manicure, affordable
CONS:
