Gorgeous. Yvette is a Master Colorist with 13 years of experience; is super nice; understands choosing the right color for your skin tone; and is friendly and down-to-earth. My sis and I decideded to darken my platinum blonde hair to a darker strawberry blonde and got some freaky two-toned brassy/ashy results. I called A&S and was lucky to get in the same day (Yvette had a cancellation). She suggested staying in the red family since I have porcelain skin; and since I have already had bright red hair in the past; we decided to try a deep auburn; which she thought would flatter my fair skin and blue eyes. She was right. It looks amazing. Other customers were stopping me and complimenting me. The best part? It was only 80 bucks. I was blown away by the service, talent, and the price. The place is super cool too; very edgy vibe; and I felt comfortable even though I'm not a typical Wicker Park hipster :)

Art and Science is such great salon. No matter who cuts my hair, I always know it will look great. It can be a little pricey, but that depends on who cuts your hair. They specialize in artsy haircuts, so if you need something basic, go someplace cheaper!

Pros: Excellent location, service, products

Cons: A little pricey -- but worth it!

I am not usually one to sit and type on one of the sites but I have experienced what I would have to say is the classiest color I've ever had. My colorist, Susan Hurley from Art + Science salon Wicker Park, used a new technique on my fine dirty dishwater colored hair called "Singles". She said that it is far more progressive than the typical "highlights" of today. She layered these colors throughout my head in a manor only she could explain and when it was finished I had the best and most natural enhanced color I have ever had. My hair is not what I would call the best to work with in fact I have never been a fan. I have had a multitude of color variations and until recently I was just bored. I now am actually stopped on the street to ask who colors my hair! I can see why she is the Color Director for the Art + Science Salons, she is keeping them informed on what is fresh and new.
She has returned this year from her color and education journey and is back with a surge of impactful ideas and techniques. I missed my tag team for it goes with out saying that my hair cuts have always been with Paul Wilson, the man who makes women look their absolute best...not kidding! Not to mention all the guys I've sent to this "Mr. American Crew" they finally look handsome and not someone out of a Penny's catalogue. (I've heard Paul was appointed Artistic Director for that company this year). Plan your appointments ahead of time for he's booked solid. It is also important to book the tag team accordingly. Secret is to book your next while your there! trust me on that one. Kudos Susan and Paul!!!

Cons: hair tonic being discontinued.

I love going to Tara at Art and Science in Bucktown to get my hair cut. She always takes her time and it looks great everytime. It is pricey but worth the money.

I've been coming to Art + Science for several years now and have never been disappointed. I love Nicole and Tara; they are such sweet girls! Also, Charlie is adorable and will give a really edgy cut. The prices are a bit steep but the cuts always grow out well, so I only go in every few months. They also offer free bang trims. Even if the person who cut your hair isn't available to give you your trim, someone else will do it for free. The only bad experience I had here was when I got my hair dyed. The woman got dye all over my forehead and didn't bother wiping it off. The color was nothing like I thought it would be, so I ended up leaving with a big blotch of color on my face and a color I was unsure of. Since then, I've saved myself a bundle by just buying dye at the store. I figured I can get a weird color and spill dye on myself for a lot cheaper! Still, the stylists are awesome. I will remain fiercely loyal to this place until I leave Chicago.

I went to the salon in wicker park,my hair was way too long and curly.She cut it in layers.To tell the truth I was a little shocked at the beginning,it was very short compared to the way it used to be,but after some days I got used to it and I really love it now,it looks great,the layers give me a great volume and is so healthy now.Tara is a very nice person and I even receive a letter in my mail today where she ask me how I feel with the haircut and she gave me some disscount cards for my friends,I love when people take care of you like that,thanks Tara!!!You should definitely get a haircut with her.

Pros: Cool place, friendly stylist, good price

Art + Science likes to project itself with a bit of an experimental edge?which is a great asset but might also be intimidating. Once you trust them to work your hair over, though, they do a very nice job giving you exactly what you want, even if you yourself can't articulate exactly what that is. Stylists are friendly yet not overbearing, and the high concept design of the salon is quite engaging. Very pricey, but worth it on those times when you need to look good or want to change things up a bit.

PROS: Friendly stylists with excellent skills
CONS: Outrageously expensive

I started going to Art & Science a few years when my stylist Charlie started working there. I've never had a bad experience and everyone I know goes there to get their haircut and they always leave with a great haircut.Not only can Charlie work wonders on my own hair and my boyfriend, roomate and other friends but he recently cut my friend's 5 yr old daughters hair and she's still talking about how much she loves it!

Anytime I have went to Art&Science it has been great. The staff is freindly and Charlie can give a great cut while brightening your day. I have refered many people to the salon and have always heard them come back with the same expereince that I have had.

i love the cuts and color at this place and the atmoshere is cool . no "snotty, i'm cooler than you " like you get at most upscale salons. i used to live in london and this is the closest thing in chicago to that kind of cool vibe. i've had cuts with charlie, melissa and lukas, i was happy each time. definately worth checking out, but make an appointment they always seem busy

I've never been much for snotty stylists and overpriced haircuts, and had to admit I had trepidations when first entering Art + Science. However, my expectations were completely unwarranted. The staff was more than friendly, extremely knowledgable and completely void of pretense. I'd highly recommend asking for Nicole C as your stylist because she has a keen eye for detail and is a genuinely charming person to be around.

I've been getting my hair done by Gil for years and I love him! He's so fun and nice and realistic about you and your hairstyle. He'll really work with you to achieve the results that you want.

I have given Art + Science more than a fair try. I was assigned a "director" for my hard to color hair. She was a disappointment to say the least. My highlights were like a chess board, some blond and some red. Her explaination was that's just the way it happens sometimes. I had to have my process repeated twice on two seperate occasions and she never checks the color after my blow dry. Once she's done putting on the color, she ships me off to a student to wash and dry, never to be seen again. Boo.
