Cost Cutters would be a better option perhaps?

We at iLLustria have researched our computerized client base of over 14,000 records. Not only does this name not exist in our files, there have been no client complaints. Heide and Karlabeth are the in house master colorist and stylists.

Karla is the best!. Super loving and talented! She has been doing my hair for almost 20 years and has done a great job with it. I have been gray since age 21, and Karla takes great care of it. You can not tell that it's not my natural

My friends recommended Karla the owner to me after I asked them where they got their hair cut and colored. Both of their hair always looked fantastic and I was looking for a change. Karla took the time to talk to me and give me suggestions

I called Karla for a appointment and got a quote for $120.00 for 3 color highlights and a cut. When I arrived the place was deserted, a wreck, dirty with hair on the floor and dusty. I should have walked out then but didn't. Karla and I

I have been having my hair styled at Illustria Salon & Academy for many years. Karla always listens to what I want and gives me a good haircut. I would't go anywhere else.

I have been going to Illustria Salon for a very, very long time. My Mom, Grandma and Aunt also go there. Heidi and Karla have taught me so many things on how to keep my hair healthy! I change my hairstyle almost every week and they are the only two people who can make my hair look exactly the way I want it to look at any given time. THEY ARE THE BEST!!!!!! - Stevie

I just got my hair done by Brooklyn. At first I was nervous because Steph used to do my hair till she left but Brooklyn did an awesome job. She is a great stylist and personal therapist! THANK YOU KARLA FOR CREATING A PLACE I KNOW I CAN GET MY HAIR DONE WITHOUT WORRIES.

Pros: The best quality in everything they do!

I don't know about dirty and disorganized...The place is very informal, and I'd rather go there than Regis or some other god awful corporate salon. And being a guy I'd never want to spend more that $30 for a haircut. The girls are great, and I've never recieved anything but the best treatment and the best service. I'd disregard milwaukeechicks review, sounds more like it was posted by a competetor.

Pros: LOCATION, Walk-Ins, PRICE.

Cons: I can't afford to get my hair done every day.

I can walk in any time and get a great haircut. There is always someone who can take me with in 15 min!

Oh my GOD, in one word...VILE. Stopped in to get my hair cut, never been there before and OMG it was disgusting, filthy and disorganized. I should have turned around and walked out but I figured I would buck it up and try. Hair was EVERYWHERE, dust and GRIME on EVERYTHING. Seriously it tainted my whole day, and I am not flustered by much. As my hair was getting cut all I could do was look at this brown thing on the floor in front of my, wondering if it was a huge dead insect or a clipping of hair. I was so glad to get home and take a shower to wash the feeling of filth out of my soul. Yeah the cut wasn't bad, but I am NEVER, EVER going back in that place. The towel my stylist wiped the grime off her station table with was the SAME towel she used to brush the clippings off my face with. So, SO, SOOOOOOO gross. Go to superclips if you want to save money, go to another salon if you want a better cut and service. If you go here be sure to be up on your vaccinations! ICK ICK ICK.
