ALLYSON is where it's at! I have fine hair and I always want something different, which is hard with straight hair. I'll come in with ideas of what I want and she tells me the truth, what will work and not work with my hair. She's not pushy about it, but makes helpful suggestions since she's the professional. I always come out with a different AMAZING cut and color that works with my hair type. Also, the atmosphere in the salon is great! Everyone is friendly and will definitely make you feel comfortable.
Now that I've found Allyson, I can't imagine going to anyone else!

I had my hair cut and colored by Sharyl yesterday, and I can't believe how many compliments I've had already. I wear my hair long and when I told her to only take half an inch off, that's all she took. My highlights turned out like the picture I brought in. I am very particular about my hair, and it was nice to finally find someone who listened to exactly what I wanted. I was also surprised that when I went to pay, I received a teenager discount because I am 19.

I was referred to Jimmy at J Gordon by an aquaintance of mine whose hair is allways beautiful whenever I see her. She allways raves about her stylist "Jimmy Hong" So I decided to book an appointment for a cut and highlights. When I arrived the salon was busy. Jimmy greeted me and then really took the time to listen and consult with me about what I wanted. What I got was the best cut of my life! It was not only chic but my hair seemed to almost fall into place even after I shook it! I am also very happy with the highlights he gave me ( he added more around my face to "frame it and add brightness" he said, and it really did. ) I highly reccomend him and I will definitely go back!

What an outstanding experience I had in J. Gordon Salon. This place is warm, cozy, and very relaxing. It is filled with antique pictures, furniture, a lots of beautiful things. Everyone was very friendly.
On November 2006, I booked an appointment with Mina, not knowing what to expect. Mina gives you ideas what you could do with your hair. Mina is very skilled, sooooo friendly; I had the best haircut and best color ever-exactly what I wanted. Now, I always come back...
I highly recommend this salon-highly recommend Mina.

I just moved to Chicago and was looking for a new stylist. Based on their great online reviews, I made an appointment at J. Gordon for a cut and style, and it was fantastic. Really, really, nice people. A really cute environment (lots of antiques and art). The shampoo was great . Many thanks to everyone for making me feel so comfortable on my first visit to a new salon. I love my hair and will defintiely be back.

What a wonderful experience I had last night being a first time client at J. Gordon! Having gone to the same salon now for a couple of years, I was nervous to make the change. After arriving at J Gordon, I immediately felt at ease and comfortable. From the time I walked in the salon to the time I left, everyone was very friendly and down to earth. I went in for a haircut (wanting suggestions for a change) and highlights. Mina (senior stylist & colorist who was extremely friendly) consulted me and offered a nice idea/change for my hairstyle which is what I wanted! Seems hard to find, for me anyways! The cut and highlights turned out great and I am very pleased. I was also surprised & very pleased when Nora washed my hair and also gave me a relaxing neck & shoulder massage as well! Wow! Walked into work this morning and received some nice compliments! I definitely plan on going back to Mina at J Gordon!

Pros: Great cut & highlights/low lights, very friendly staff and quaint European feel

Cons: Everything Great!

Its hard for me to go to another stylist, but seeing as mine is in California, I had to make the plunge. I chose J. Gordon because it is next door to my house, but I later discovered that they have a great reputation here in Chicago (Oprah even loves them). The place is small, but quaint, with Parisian decor and old fashioned stations that make you feel like you're in your grandfather's barber shop. The staff is great though... the receptionist very warm and friendly, the hair washer gives you a neck massage and the stylist could probably do anything you ask for. My appointment was with Jenna and I left satisfied.

For 25 years I would only go to the same woman for anything related to my hair. I am very picky about it! However, I decided to venture out and try something new because the trip to my old hairstylist didn't make much sense. I have now been to J.Gordon Designs 3 times since September and LOVE it. Jimmy does my hair and he is great! I highly recommend this salon. Great service, no attitude, more expensive prices, but it is worth every penny!

I was referred to J. Gordon Designs by a friend after getting a terrible color job at another local salon. My highlights were way too brassy and way, way too bold and chunky. I saw Nikki for my color, and she was able to fix the highlights by adding some more highlights and lowlights to my hair and toning down the brass. I think this is the best my color has ever looked. Everyone was so friendly and I felt very comfortable in the salon, even though I arrived with a big challenge. I definitely recommend this salon.

At J. Gordon Designs, we take the quality of our work and customer satisfaction very seriously. We have been in business for 35 years, and have worked diligently to earn the respect and trust of the community that we service. We are troubled by the review posted by Lish4. First, we hope that it was not written by an unethical competitor, as sometimes happens on CItySearch. They write bad reviews about others, and glowing reviews about themsleves.

However, if it truly was written by a guest in our salon, we greatly regret that you were unhappy with your service. We wish that you had contacted us so that we could have corrected your highlights if you felt they were too light. And, we could have given you a treatment to moisturize your hair. All new clients receive a follow-up card encouraging them to call if any part of their experience was unsatisfactory, and we never heard from you. In fact, we offer all of our clients a complimentary "re-do" within 2 weeks of a service if any aspect of it does meet with their satisfaction.

Also, I feel I must add, for those of you who may have read the review, we NEVER "do whatever we want," especially with color. We always do a consultation, discuss options and upkeep, and come to a mutual understanding about what will be done before we begin a service. Perhpas there was some miscommunication, and I apologize if this was the case.

To Lish4, I wish you had given us the opportunity to correct anything you may have been unhappy with. But, I also understand that you might not have felt comfortable or confident returning to the same stylist/colorist if your experience was not what you ahd hoped for. You mentioned that you had visited the salon a few months prior to your recent CitySearch posting. I hope you will contact me. I would like to offer you a complimentary highlight and conditioning treatment with myself or another technician.

Sincerely,

I heard this place was great for color. This was my first time getting highlights, and I told her to feel free to do as she pleased. My hair was dark brown, and I received very blonde highlights. This was not the look I was going for, not to mention how bad it dried my hair out. Several months later I still have the frizz. The cut wasn't too bad, but who can tell with hair that stands out 6 inches from your head?? Not recommended for the price, time, and end result!

I have been a very happy client at this salon for more than 10 years. About 3 years ago, I moved out of Lincoln Park, but I still come back for my cut and color. Jerry and his staff have always been warm and accomodating to my requests. I have seen several different stylists at J. Gordon and they all have been excellent. No attitude here! Keep up the good work!

I recently moved to California and one thing I miss the most is J. Gordon! I always went to Sarah for cuts and highlights, and she's fantastic. I like the smaller size and the atmosphere, it was always warm, inviting, and relaxing. The staff is friendly and skilled, which I've really come to appreciate in looking for someone new here! It's a good value, and I definitely recommend it to anyone.

I was given mixed reviews on this place. But I thought I would give it a shot because it looked so nice. Yeah I said I like fun and maybe a little over the top hair, and I left looking like a soccer mom. But maybe thats just their clientelle. Receptionist made me uncomfortable. I guess its what you would imagine a high end salon to be like. I won't go back, but I can see why others may enjoy that type of environment. I hate to leave a bad review, but I just didn't care for it much. Sorry. I think its a nice place for a different age group or type of person/style.

I used to do my hair cut here when I lived in the area and was always satisfied with their service. One thing I remember is they use AVEDA products, not just any products like other hair salon in the same price range. Most of the staff are friendly and willing to listen to what you have in mind for your hair style. They also sell gift certificate, a great gift for any woman !

Melissa does color like no other. She really listens to what you want and makes it happen, even if it needs to be done in nonconventional ways. Sometimes the salon is really busy and you may have to wait to have your hair washed, but once you do, the neck massage is amazing. Highly recommend!

When my last hairdresser left her salon, I decided to try somewhere new. I had walked past this salon many times, and decided to stop in for a consultation. It was so charming and everyone was so nice. It is filled with antique pictures and lots of beautiful things. The receptionist was very helpful, and I stayed for a cut and some highlights. Everyone was very professional, and I loved my hair. Since then, I have sent many of my friends, and all of them have been very happy with their hair. This place is true gem.

I have been going to J. Gordon to get my haircut for about 3 years and love it! I've also gotten highlights which have been great--especially since I'm pretty conservative when it comes to highlighting my hair.

I always go to Mellisa--she's the best! I've referred literally 10 of my friends to her and they love her too! The prices are pretty good for a downtown haircut--about $40 or so (not including tip). And they use Aveda products, which I love!

I recently moved to Chicago and was looking for a new salon. I saw a woman on the bus with a great haircut and she recommend that I go to J. Gordon Designs. Everyone in the salon is so friendly, and I love all of the antiques. Great environment. I got an excellent cut, and now am getting my color done as well. I have referred friends to the salon, and they have all been very pleased too. I highly recommend their services.

I was new to the area and went to this salon based on their reviews and because they use Aveda products. The salon is so charming, and everyone was so nice. Katherine gave me a great cut and beautiful highlights. She made some good suggestions for drying my hair that I really appreciated. But the best part was the shampoo service. It was amazing! I will be back.

I LOVE going to see Jerry! He is wonderful and the atmosphere of the salon is fantastic. It's comfortable, bustling but not hectic, and friendly and warm. You don't find attitude at J. Gordon. Instead Jerry and everyone who works there just puts you at ease. My Saturday mornings there are such a treat for me - I feel like I've gone on vacation to Paris every time I walk in there.
