Recently we went into Jems and we were very disappointed. We were regular customers when it run by the previous owner who started the business in 1999. Its my understanding she sold the business and what we found was the new owners kept

What a fabulous place! I love my stylist, I am entertaining the idea of trying out the massage therapist because of recommendations my friends have made. This hair salon does a fantastic job for your money, and they give me (and everyone)

I have to respond to the above comment by psycholot just to say JEM's did our wedding over a year ago and they were fantastic. I don't know what this woman was talking about but it could have been the pressure of her day. As you

A girl named Petra did my nails for Halloween. She did a beautiful job on hand painting pumpkins on my nails. She was patient and creative. This is a great way to decorate your nails up for the upcoming seasons.

A very talented young woman started working there and she does great highlights! Her name is Petra and she's hip and easy to work with. I met her when she was a student at Midwest College of Cosmetology and she did GREAT work there! A nice addition to the Jem's hair team.

Mary is such a blessing!. My friend highly recommended her for hair color but it came out way beyond anything I could have expected. In my opinion hair colorists are like plastic surgeons, the best hair colorist is the one that creates colors that seems natural----like your own--- my blond highlights are amazing and I couldn ' t be happier. Five stars for Mary, my hair has never looked so beautiful.

My friend recommended her hairstylist at Jems. I was afraid to go, but I take strength and I made the appointment. I am EXTREMELY HAPPY I DID !!!. Jean did a great job on my hair. The salons services was absolutely impeccable and staff was friendly and outgoing. It was just a wonderful experience. Best of all, since I mentioned my visit to others I work with at a local hospital in Bloomington, many of my co-workers have also said what a great cut and color they also got at Jem's. A friend who went to Cindy at Jem's, loved her highlights. She was very impressed with Cindy's skill. Best of all I got a great color at a price much less than I paid at a salon that thinks it all that!!! After all, the bottom line is to be happy, have a great cut, and not spend my entire paycheck doing it.

After reading one great review after another I decided to try JEM's for the first time today. I got an appointment with Mary, went in, and held my breath...

It was just as good as I hoped it would be! The thing that made this place perfect was that I genuinely felt like I was being listened to. She wanted to know how I style it, how much I like/hate to style it, what I've had in the past, what would work best for my face, etc. etc....

I'm not very hair-style savvy, so that is just the type of guidance I need!

I walked away with a super cute, low maintenance cut and I will DEFINITELY be back again soon!

Even though Mary did my cut, it was obvious interacting with Cindy, Kim, Kistin and jean that they are ALL friendly. A great place and reasonably priced for the fabulous job they do!

I'm living in Chicago now, but still make sure to stop into JEM's to get my hair done when back visiting Bloomington/Normal. The stylist give me the exact cut I envision (and I'm not an easy customer - ha ha). I highly recommend Mary and the JEM's girls!

Pros: Friendly Stylists

This is a great salon. Very professional, but laidback. Also, it's not a ridiculous cost for services. I've gotten good color and cut. I've also gotten a lot of updos done there that were awesome. I'd recommend Mary as a stylist. The only drawback is they tend to run behind on appointments and (logically) can take a LONG time to do color and cut.

Pros: good cut, affordable, friendly, good location across from the mall

Cons: lengthy process, run behind

I received the best cut and color and the staff was so professional. This is the best little hair studio I've found outside of Chicago.

I have been a customer at JEM's since they opened and have been very happy with the service I get. Their place is near my work, makes it easy to stop by before or after work.
