BAD EXPERIENCE!!! These people rave about having experience cutting hair, but it's all a lie. As someone stated earlier, her hair was left with layers she didnt want. Well the woman that cut my hair at this salon cut my hair so bad it looked like I had short hair with extensions. It was the worst experience. It took forever to grow out my hair. My bad hair cut was noticed by ALL. Not to mention the owner is UNPROFESSIONAL, rude and snobbish. Very egotisical and seems uneducated. Avoid this salon at ALL costs. Even the manicures there are unsanitary...might as well pay for a fungus.

Pros: NONE

Cons: SERVICE, HAIR CUT, OWNER, PRICE

When a coworker came in with a great cut, I asked her where she went, she told me Basili's in Riverside. Thou it is a bit of a distance from my home, I made an appointment.
Not trusting many people with my hair (due to a few really bad cuts in the past) I was nervous when I went in. I was greeted by Bill the owner - what a nice man. I was immediately put to ease. He explained to me why my home processed color turned out the way it did and how he was going to correct it. As for my hair cut, when I told him about my coworkers hair and who cut it for her, I was then given to Matt to do my cut. I can not express how much fun I had getting a hair cut from Matt. He does WONDERFULL work. My hair turned out beautiful - exactly what I wanted. I have never left a salon looking forward to the next time I need a hair cut. Bill and Matt are a great team and I will keep going back.

If you need a dye job, go to Basili's. I can't believe how gorgeous my hair is and the condition of it, is AMAZING. The staff is VERY friendly and personable. They have young staff and older staff so whatever age range you're in, you can get what you want. If you're younger and are looking for an edgier look or something different, they're perfect because they know what's in style and what looks best.

I used to go there when I was in high school to have my hair dyed and I wish I never left! I came back though once I moved back to the burbs and they're STILL amazing at what they do.

I called on a Friday evening and was able to get an appointment for the next day (thank god!). I had Matt who was very friendly and understood what I was talking about of what I wanted and Bill is honestly a genius. I went in there just to get a touch up and some highlights/low lights and a trim. Things didn't go how they were planned with my hair because of what previous salons have done and the condition of my hair. I was there for a good few hours and had to have some corrective color done (which can be VERY expensive at many places).

I am SO glad I went there for it. My bill was going to be 190 bucks for everything I had done. Bill said I was so patient and friendly, he knocked off 30 bucks. Now I'm sorry but I have NEVER received service like that. Amazing.

I haven't been to a place where they actually care about their clients and refuse to let them walk out the door if they're unhappy in a long time. I'm so glad they're a block away from me! I LOVE how I look now! If I wasn't so tired from sitting in the chair so long I probably would have screamed out of excitement.

I will definitely be back and will be promoting their salon left and right because they're AMAZING."

This is an amazing small hair salon. The owner is amazing and is so knowledgeable about hair. All of the workers are friendly and want to get to know you while they are making you pretty They log on a card what they used for your hair and how they did it. They also do nails and waxing. It is kind of pricey but they do an excellent job. So when you can afford it go there and try it out.

I HAD THE MOST RELAXING AND EXHILERATING EXPERIENCE AT BASILI'S. I WAS GREETED WHEN I WALKED IN THE DOOR AND OFFERED COFFEE. I WAS PROMPTLY CALLED TO BILL'S CHAIR. HE'S THE OWNER. AFTER A BRIEF CONVERSATION, HE WHIPPED UP SOME COLOR.....I RELAXED WHILE I WAITED FOR THE COLOR TO WORK. THEN I WAS WASHED AND BACK IN BILL'S CHAIR. OH MY GOD, OUT CAME THE SICCORS AND WALLAH!!!!! WHEN HE BLEW MY HAIR DRY IT WAS LIKE A MIRACLE. MY HAIR WAS BOUNCY AND WHEN I TWIRLED MY HEAD MY HAIR WAS STILL BEAUTIFUL. THEN HE SHOWED ME HOW TO GET IT THAT WAY MYSELF. I THINK I FOUND THE PLACE FOR ME FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. I HAVE BEEN TELLING EVERYONE ABOUT BASILI'S AND CAN'T WAIT TILL MY TOUCHUP. THANK YOU TO ALL THE EMPLOYEES AT BASILI'S.....BUT ESPECIALLY BILL.

Worst haircut and service.
I met a woman that had a great haircut, so I asked her where she went, she told me Basili's in Riverside, and said that the owner cut her hair. I went into the salon with my hair down past my chest and told the owner I wanted the ends razored and I wanted LONG layers, I even brought in a picture from a magazine which even described how the cut was done. He pulls out two razors, one for each hand and turns me away from the mirrors. Hair was flying. I wondered how he could possibly of known what he was cutting since his hands were moving so fast, well, he had no clue. I ended up with one side with a big chunk taken out just below my ear. I sat there in shock, even paid and tipped. I got home and looked into the mirror horrified, tried hair clips, but nothing could be done. I called back and complained and was told that I got what I asked for and that I can get a free haircut which is the only one I'm getting and that I have to pay extra for blowdrying. I came out with my long hair cut just above my shoulders. I would NEVER go back. Later at other salons I found out that others complained with simular horror stories.

I recently moved to La Grange and found that all the nicer salons in the area were a bit uncomfortable, until I saw Basili's Salon on Citysearch. My hair turned out great, and I should mention how much fun everyone has in there. Great attitudes, good-looking hair, and a 'real' friendly staff kept me at ease. I'm going back this week for my first pedicure!!

Pros: quaint neighborhood

Cons: a little phone waiting

Whenever I'm feeling frisky or need a pick me up, I treat myself to a new 'do or manicure here. Gail has great ideas for modern looks that I can recreate at home. There's also great lunch spots nearby.

Pros: lots of niceties (specialty drinks, effiancy...)

Cons: unreliable parking, closed Sunday & Monday
