I have been Going to the salon since it opened. Their hair cutting services are outstanding. But, my recent experience with the "senior" colorist Amalia has more than disturbed me. Through a number of mistakes ( or just lack of knowledge) I spent an entire day (11-5) having my hair colored a greenish-brown ( I was suppose to be blond). 'trying to correct, or extract the color - my keratin treatment was extracted by using a shampoo that should not have been used, and re-coloring it - to the point of extreme damage. I had to return the next week to have my hair cut short to remove the damaged hair. She should not be allowed to work in this otherwise excellent salon.

I receive excellent services ( especially) my cuts from George, but last month Amalia, damaged my hair so terribly by having little, or no knowledge of what she was doing. 1st she colored my hair a greenish-brown (it was suppose to be blond), she then had my hair repeatedly shampooed with a product which extracted my Keratin treatment, and then, she recolored my hair and damaged it to the extent of needing a short haircut to get rid of the damage. And, the funny part, this was 2 days before my birthday. She should not be allowed to work on hair in this otherwise, excellent salon.

Araceli had been doing my hair a while back and I recently returned to her. She knows her stuff and explains the process before she does anything to your hair. Very professional for her to do that. Definately recommend. Wil definately be going to her more often :). Go and experience it for yourself.

I'm not a fan. I paid over $70 for a very bad haircut that I needed to get fixed. When I told them I was not satisfied with my haircut, instead of trying to remedy the situation, they told me I could book another appointment with the same stylist for another $70 (ummm I don't think so) to fix it. Naturally, I went elsewhere.

I feel bad outing a specific stylist, but she was one of the pricier ones, so I had expected much more. This was definitely the biggest waste of money. My hair looked boxy and awkward when I walked out. I'll never get those $70 back, but you can be sure I won't throw more money down the drain by coming back.

Perhaps a different stylist here would have done a good job, but I had a really bad experience that I was very upset about. I expected so much more after hearing good things and judging by their prices.

I recently went in the Art and Science Hair Salon in Evanston on Church to get my hair relaxed and colored. The hair colorist, Alyx, that worked on my hair treated me like a pain in the neck. I thought that because of their high prices I would be treated with a lot more grace, but that was not true.I am not sure if she was having a bad day, but I didnt appreciate being treated like that. Next time, I will either go to a different location or different Salon.

I've never had a worse experiences getting my haircut before. Alice didn't really listen to what I wanted done, she kept telling me how busy she was, and overall rushed through the haircut faster than imaginable. I was almost in tears when I saw how much hair she cut off when I was going in for a "trim". I looked like a middle-aged washed up politician when I left. Unless you want to feel like a walking money symbol and not someone being taken care of, don't go to Alice or this salon in general.

Pros: pandora station playing?

Cons: rushy hairstylist, pretentious workers, awful!

I wasn't sure if I should try this place because I didn't want to end up with a metrosexual haircut, but I wanted something other than one provided by a fat, bald man with tattoos. I gave it a chance, and it was well worth the money. I was showered with compliments. Yippee.

I've been going to Art and Science in Evanston for nearly 3 years to get my hair cut and colored. Every single time Brady has done a great job with my highlights--he creates a very natural color that all blends together and still looks great growing out. Very friendly too! I've had several different women cut my hair (which I always keep chin length or shorter), and with only one exception I have liked my haircut every time. The exception was actually one of their more experienced and more expensive stylists--she cut my hair uneven but I went back and they were nice about fixing it for free. In general I go with the newer stylists--they're rates are lower and they are just as talented as the more expensive ones. The clients include women of all ages and some men too--overall a friendly and professional atmosphere.

This is my first review about anything ever. Great work of Zack made me write this review.

I wanted to have an haircut today from a place at walking distance from my apartment. I called the nearest salon but fotunatley they were all book for the week. Then I called Art & Science Salon and took an appointment, after taking appointment I asked for price which is $51. I thought it is too much but I didnt cancel my appointment and reached there in 10 minutes.

Zack was my stylist and I tried explaining to him what I want. Although, I didnt know how to tell what I want, and even I didnt know what exactly I want, but he understood perfectly. He gave me perfect cut, I got my verly long hair cut relatively very short but i didnt regret for any hair lock at the floor, because I could not keep my eyes off mirror. He was doing a great job and I could see myself looking much much better than before. I am glad I didnt get afraid of high price and went there. For this look, I am ready to spend this much money once in 1/2 months.

Normally what happens with me is that hair-cutters blame type of my hair but Zack treated them as they are the most important thing for him in the world. If you are one of those people, who blame their hair for not getting the perfect style, this place is a must for you.

I'm new to the area, so after reading reviews on various salons, I decided to try out this place. My stylist was Chloe, and she was wonderful! She listened to what I wanted and I was pleased with the cut. (also offers free trims for bangs inbetween haircuts) She also used a diffuser to create waves in my hair, since I had told her that I always wanted waves/curls in my iron-straight hair and wanted to know how to do it - she showed me how to do it and it turned out great! I definitely recommend this place - the atmosphere is similar to what I'm used to in Austin, so I'll be coming back.

Pros: friendly, easy to talk to stylist, close to many shops if you're early for the appt

Cons: make sure you get a confirmation phone call before your appt

The staff at Art + Science were extremely rude and acted as though I was wasting their time. My stylist was dressed completely unprofessionally and she didn't listen to anything I asked for. My cut was much shorter than I asked for, and my color washed out within weeks. Not worth the attitude, not worth the price. Skip it!

Art and Science is a great little modern place to get a stylish hair cut. The stylists are imaginative and do a great job cutting your hair to your specification. They also sell great products that you can't find in a drug or discount type of store.

PROS: Good location, Creative hairstylists
CONS:

Compared to most other salons in the area Art and Science is for sure on the edge. The staff has really fun ideas for hair and take the time to do a full consultation before getting started. They recomended proper shampoo and conditioner to maintain my new color. I had a really great experience and cannot wait to come back. I arrived early for my appointment and my stylist was right on time! I have been back several times and have not had to wait. I feel all the staff are very professional and caring. It is a really busy salon so there is always a buzz in the air. I like that if people are there something good must be going on.

art + science is my favourite chicago salon . upbeat atmosphere , well trained staff and about half the price of my old salon downtown . i read the " 3 ring circus " review and i just don't get it . i've seen clients in the salon , from 18 to 80 yrs and everybody seems to be having a great time and looking great. if you want a more old fashioned experience, pick just about any other northshore salon (they're all pretty much in the L7 ilke ) and you should be safe .

This is a great place to get a hair cut. I'm not really a fan of the quick in-and-out Supercuts and Hair Cutteries, so this place is a nice change for me. They are very affordable and do a wonderful job with hair. They take their time to make sure to get your hair the way you like it. The hair stylists are very friendly and will work with you to get exactly what you want.

i've been coming to this salon (as well as my brother and mother ) for seven years and i love it. the atmosphere is fun, the cuts and color are great and the staff has a great attitude. there is no salon on the northshore who is the the same league as far as the quality of the work and the prices are reasonable compared to the oak street prices i used to pay. i love the fact they don't try and be all new age, like most salons/spas these days ( i love the upbeat vibe ). i did a couple of semesters in london when i was in school and this place reminds me of the salon i went to there, give it a try.

This place is loud with thumping music,.noisy, and the staff,..all of them,..seem preoccupied with something. Or disintersted. I don't know what everyone else finds so great about this place,..but my color and cut were awful. Lately I've been noticing a lot of colorists being too lazy to highlight long hair,..so they do an allover color and 2 or 3 highlites in the front,...yeah. That's not what I wanted,..I made it very, very clear what I wanted. When I find a colorist that actually wants to put in the effort that I pay for,..I'll go there.

I went to Art + Science last week and was not impressed at all. The staff was snooty and I felt like I was a burden to be there. I waited a half hour past my appointment and then the stylist rushed through my cut. I was not impressed with the work and I ended up having to go to another salon to have my cut fixed. I will never go there again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.

Art + Science is one of the best salons here in Evanston. The staff is friendly, knowledgable and truely professional. From color to cut they do it with ease and style. Enjoy the hip environment, and walk out with a smile after your treatment. I've gotten my hair cut and highlighted hear and continue to get tons of compliments from people.

Dominique is a true artist unrivaled in Chicago...or the midwest for that matter. She always makes my hair look awesome--and who could resist that accent. You can pay double or even triple the prices at snooty downtown salons for half the quality of haircuts. The hipster staff is always friendly and they always seem to make me feel more than welcome!!!
