The only reason this review is getting one star is the nice colorist. My sister received a gift from a friend from Gilt to visit this salon. Upon showing the colorist what she was interested in doing, the manager told her that it would not be possible and she would not be able to use her gift card. When she asked for options of different color treatments, the manager continuously told her that they would not be able to work with her. To be so instant that you could not work with my sister begs the question why? In what business model do you refuse to find any service that fits within the gift card category and instead lead the customer to the door. It is extremely disappointing that my sister when into this feeling great about up dating her look and instead left feeling down on herself because the salon refused to work with her. Please think about how your employees tones and actions effect people. People go to salons to leave feeling good and that did not happen for my sister.
I've been going to CI for years and have never had a bad experience. Bella has been my colorist for a long time now and she's awesome. Actually, she's amazing and perhaps a magician. Today I came in with my usual very dark brown (almost black) hair and left a few hours later with platinum blonde hair. Yes, that is correct. This was a huge change and as always, I trusted her completely. If you are considering doing something big like this, see Bella.
I have been getting my hair cut and styled by Eddie Diebold for years and always leave feeling like a new person! He is always there to greet me when I arrive and takes his time with our appointment...exceptional talent and service
I'd like to post a review of my experience as a stylist. This year will mark my 35th year at Charles Ifergan Oak Street. 35 wonderful years I might add. Charles has helped me as mature stylist to keep my work current and contemporary. Charles Ifergan's workshops and continuing education classes has allowed me to provide a beautiful new fresh look to all ages of our clientele. Merci
Great service. I loved the cut Loran has given. This is one of the best Salon I had experienced.
They don't even wait for you to leave to start talking about you--I liked and highly respected this man too!
I have been a loyal customer to Charles Ifergan for eight years. I always see Jessica. She gives the best haircut and blowout I've ever had which is what keeps me coming back. If you are looking for a 5 star salon experience, you will find it here!
I only turn to Jillian R, to color my hair! She gives a great consultation, and helps me find what style really works for me. I always leave Charle's Salon feeling beautiful and confident, all thanks to Jillian!!!
Charles is phenomenal, the hairdresser to the stars. His hands r magic.
What a great salon! My hair looks perfect every time.
Beyond excited to climb the four story staircase to be greeted by Jamie Wallace, my hairstylist today. I could not be more impressed, happy and thrilled with the outcome of my hair. From the hospitality, offering water, coffee or tea to the shampoo service, beautiful staff and fabulous products it all made me feel at home and very happy. Jamie cut my hair to perfection. She has a fun, generous, down to earth, kind and professional technique that brings the wow factor. We laughed and she taught me how to take care of my hair moving forward. I have got nothing but compliments on how wonderful my haircut looks. I am all smiles and can't wait to return. Big thanks to Jamie and the CI team.
LOVE Sayuri who cut my hair. She is professional, creative and knows hair! Not only she made me look 10 lbs lighter, I look 10 years younger with the cute cut that she designed for me. All she wants is for her clients to look great!!!!! I got so many complements from my coworkers and friends on Facebook. I have been a loyal customer since 2011.
Great service and style
Gia and Samantha are my go-to pair for a cut and color. My hair looks great after every cut and I don't have to blow it out for several days afterward. Sam's color comes out perfect every time and I can go at least 5 weeks between single process treatments. They're also up on the latest trends so we have fun comparing notes.
I moved away from Chicago to Dallas and three years later, I still find myself flying to Chicago to get my haircut and hair color at Ifergan! Love them to bits!
Dennis is the best curly hair stylist ever!!
I love this Salon. Best color I've ever had! I live in Ohio and wait to get my hair done for when I am in Chicago to visit. The staff is the best ever!!!
Convenient location, great space, great & talented people. 10/10 would recommend!!
Best salon experience! I saw Rachel for my haircut and she was awesome. She listened to me, was very patient, she offered her input based on my ideas, and she was extremely nice! I'm in love with my haircut and it's all thanks to Rachel!! My cut is unique and edgy and i can't get over how awesome it is! I'm never going anywhere else or to anyone else. I highly recommend Rachel, she's the best!
Olivia really good and great personality
No one cuts hair better than Dennis. Ok , maybe Charles! My hair always has great movement: falls into place well & just looks good. I have straight hair & the friend who referred me has very curly hair. So, whatever type of hair you have, you can be confidence when you book your appointment with Dennis you'll come out looking great. Enjoy
Gia is my hair stylist soulmate. She always knows exactly what I want, even when I'm not sure. I will not be going elsewhere EVER. XO
I asked Victoria for a more ashy ombré than what I had. She ended up giving me caramel highlights that looked gross. She also gave me a very unwanted chemical cut with the bleach she used. I had to get it fixed the same day and get a deep conditioning treatment by a more trusted person. She also had no problem talking down on her co workers and saying she knew more than them. She just came across very unprofessional and ruined my hair.
An extraordinarily friendly AND efficient reception desk staff. A very very professional regional manager who is most gracious. Favorite and super capable stylists and aestheticians who are fully booked for many years. George the color master. Superb. A new spectacular colorist named Cecilia Davis who is fashion dream come true. Curtis the makeup magician and a new line of makeup that challenges the best at retail department stores. Luda a perfectionist. Kind and friendly shampoo personnel. And Ryan whose hair only rivals mine. Charles' talent abounds. No better place to be.
very disappointed overall! Haircut, only wears the short sleeve rope for every customer, so when I noticed all the cut-off hair falling all over my clothes and pants, I asked the girl(Ivana or something) that if they have a cape or apron to cover, she said no need just blowing it off after the cut, can you imagine how is that gonna work?? then I noticed the next customer was not having anything covered either but only the short sleeve rope as i was wearing. of course i have hair everywhere inside my clothes and pants when I left!!!! Also, I agree with the other review, they were rude and rolling eyes to the customers, especially when I tipped only $10 to 2girls, one of them (mikiala)immediately gave me the face and attitude! well, never going back there again!
My daughter had her hair done at a local salon, a two toned angled bob, which turned out poorly. I found Charles Ifergan Salons on the internet and read a particular review on a successful color correction. We were able to get an appointment for the following day. Angie, the salon colorist who took my call, did her homework and had several recommendations ready as soon as she assessed the condition of my daughter’s hair. No pressure. It was completely up to my daughter how she wished to proceed and she was well informed about the processes and costs. The staff was very well trained and highly skilled and it was easy to have confidence in their abilities. She decided to go with an all over color correction. I cannot tell you how impressed we were at the outcome! The staff worked tirelessly through the complicated process and yet maintained cheerful conversation, offered beverages, and sought to make her comfortable in every way. They even stayed late to finish, blow dry and style her hair. My daughter now has gorgeous chestnut colored hair that looks so natural you would never know she was the same girl who walked in with the black and blonde two toned bob earlier that afternoon! I cannot thank the staff enough, particularly Angie, Victoria and Bre! Your dedication, skills and professionalism are superior! I look forward to making my appointment as well as bringing my other family members to the Charles Ifergan Salon in Oak Brook!
If you want the best color in town this is the place and George Zafiris is your guy!!! I have been going to George for years and my color always looks amazing!! Even when it's time for a touch up...I continue to get compliments!! He is so brilliant that I never tell him what to do...I sit in his chair and let George work his magic! I have NEVER been disappointed and always walk looking hot! I love him and would never go anywhere else! If u haven't stopped in to have George do your color...you need too!!
They say you need to be careful when you pick your: dentist and hairdresser. I have yet to pick the first one, as for the hairdresser, the address is clear now: Charles Ifergan Salon. Danny is very professional, listens to me carefully and delivers great results. He is also the most caring, fun and sweet hairdresser I have ever come across.
I had Sofia for a partial highlight of my blonde hair. I have never gotten more compliments than in the last week. She did an awesome job, making it look more natural and less harsh with my fair skin. Thank you, Sofia!
Charles is the best!
George Zafiris is absolutely the best hair colorist! He usually does my highlights which always look amazing. However, this time my roots only needed touching up. When I returned to work everyone complimented me on how amazing and shiny my color was. I told them I just touched up my roots! Which just tells me how amazing he is that my color lasts and never loses it shine even if I go a couple months without highlights. I would never let another colorist touch my hair!
Worst experience I've ever had. Rude and insulting stylist, did an awful job. Contacted management and they were equally as rude.
I bought the voucher through groupon and had an excellent experience in the salon! one of the best haircuts I've ever done
TLDR: Very nice salon, the groupon is worth it, Alexis is great, make sure to speak up about what you want. I was recommended by a coworker to book my groupon balayage with Alexis and she more than exceeded my expectations! Before buying this groupon I had called other salons since I have dark brown hair (with partially bleached aka orange ends) and wanted to go to an ashy blonde balayage. Alexis spent the time to make sure my hair was how I wanted and even though she recommended two sessions to get it just like the photo, my hair looks amazing! My only complaint (which is pretty small) is that I wish I had set up a consultation beforehand because it's a little disheartening going into a salon that you already paid a ton of money to get your hair done in just to have the colorists tell you that they can't match your photo (but my hair came pretty close which is exciting -- just a warning to others). Also I wish for the blowout that came with the groupon I could have gotten curls but my stylist just started blow drying my hair straight without asking what I wanted (once again not a huge deal but would have been nice to ask first). Overall very good experience and very nice salon!
I give it three stars because I had an awesome blow dry but once I stopped looking at that big bouncy curls, I realized the color done by Pricilla was barely visible. Must add that it took a lot longer than I’m used to. Pricilla left me mid color maybe 4-5 times and didn’t explain once where she was going. I think she was helping another stylist with a color issue but she was gone for over 5 minutes at one point...and I had some color in at that point. So probably over processed underneath and not left color in long enough on top caused the issue. 5 star blow dry by Casey though. Seriously the best blow dry ever. I’d love to go back but color is so important I’ll be choosing someone else for that.
Sayuri is the best!
I recently had a haircut by Giselle and couldn't be more pleased. She was very friendly and took her time and listened to what I wanted. I would recommend her to anyone!
Nice space with hustling vibe, dig my cut from Darlene! Will be back.
I love coming to the salon. It’s hard to find a great stylist. They have good customer service and great stylists. Everyone is very talented and you can go to anyone and you will leave with a great cut .
I went to this salon for a highlight and haircut. Haircut was great. I didn’t like the highlight. But they fixed it for me for free.
I got my color done by Anyssa and she has done the best job on my color that anyone has ever done for me before! I've also seen so many other colors she's done! Anyssa did a fabulous job! I'm never going to anyone else! I highly recommend Anyssa for any color, I've seen so many awesome colors she's done including mine!
I found my dream team with Aaron and Sam! I have been going to Charles Ifergan for nine years and I've had such a positive experience. Aaron is my stylist and he does an amazing job with my hair EVERY TIME. He knows my hair, he knows what to do, and I always walk out feeling like a million bucks. He continually makes my hair look chic and modern and I love it! He's also so much fun to talk to. I wouldn't go to anyone else in Chicago...he's the real deal! Sam, my colorist, is incredible. She knows what to do when I ask her to "dial it up". I love the color because she adds dimension so that it looks more natural. I get compliments constantly for both my cut and color. I know it's difficult to find people to trust with your hair (after all, it's our best accessory) but you will not be disappointed in Aaron or Sam. They both come HIGHLY recommended...love them!
I've got very good haircut there and everyone was very nice.
I have been getting my hair highlighted by Samantha (colorist) for years. She's AMAZING! I got married in Mexico and this idea in my head about how I wanted my hair to look. Samantha worked long and hard to get my hair to the perfect color with the most beautiful highlights so that my day could be just perfect!!!! Samantha is the BEST!!!!
Michael is a great stylist and has been with Charles Ifergan for over forty years.
Dennis is an expert stylist he knew exactly what my hair needed and a cut that would best fit my lifestyle and personality. His artistry has truly brought life back into my hair and for me when my hair looks good I feel good. As for Charles Ifergan Salon I am in awe of their products and staff. Thank you for making me look and feel beautiful. Xoxo
I purchased a groupon for the bayalage and got my hair colored by Priscilla and cut by Dennis. I loved everything about it except the face framers which I felt were too bold. I contacted the salon and Priscilla fixed my concerns (at no charge!) They were incredibly gracious and I am obsessed with my hair. The salon is also super pretty and everyone was welcoming and nice. 10/10 recommend.
I go to Olivia and she's AMAZING. She is seriously the queen of hair and I love her. There is no one I trust more with my crazy hair.
I have had my hair colored by Kennedy at Charles Ifergan on oak street twice and am thrilled with her work. My hair is naturally ashy and dishwater and I either end up being over highlighted so I have no dimension, or I end up with a dark color that makes me look tired and pale. I have always wanted a more sun-kissed natural look and am happy to say Kennedy is the ONLY person who has achieved this. I live in Michigan and will try to make trips to continue to see her, I don't have endless funds to do so but will save just to do it!; she is that good. She is friendly, listens, knowledgeable and just a great guy in general. Also, the way she colors helps the color last and look natural for MONTHS so I'm not visiting every 8 weeks like I used to. The salon itself is gorgeous and the staff is SO NICE which is a welcome change from many salons. I highly, highly recommend;)
I was a first-time client yesterday and Dennis did an amazing job with my hair, he was funny ,yet very professional and attentive. The salon itself is very posh but the vibe of staff and customers' interaction is friendly. Mr. Ifergan came up to greet me and complimented me, which I thought was very nice of him. I found THE salon for me!
First of all I was in vacation there and they were able to get me in in a day after emailing. Very responsive to my email and they had the manager contact me and get me in when I wanted. That was impressive! Then I had color done by Alexis and haur cut by Olivia. Both doing a very good job, if I could, would have taken them both to Alabama! But anyway, both seemed to know what they were doing and my color and cut was amazing! I went for a platinum blonde , which us not easy yo get where I am and Alexis did such a great job with that! 5 stars all around, if I wasiving there these two would be my stylists!!
I was in Chicago for a work and decided to pamper myself. The hotel I was staying at recommended this salon since it was within walking distance. Figured since I didn't need to worry about sun exposure with it being near freezing, I'd get a facial. I recommend asking for Helina, as she did a great job and is very friendly. Next time I am in Chicago I am def coming back :-)
Great experience with George!! Love my highlights every time!!! I'm always getting compliments on them. My hair is fine but super healthy because he never over processes it. I would never let anyone else touch my hair.
I have been to a few shops in my life, this one is hands down the best... Great people Great atmosphere Great hair cuts Wont go anywhere else!
I would not recommend this place to anyone. The salon is beautiful but the stylists are not experienced and will mess up your look
The best hairstyle ever. The salon is always clean and well kept. Recommended.
I love this salon! Miriah is an absolute pro with color. She has such a good eye for what will look good and I've never been disappointed. She has taken me darker, lighter, ombré, and I always get compliments on my color and asked where I get my hair done. I have never had a colorist make such great recommendations for my skin tone and lifestyle. She is AMAZING! As long as she's doing color, I will never go to anyone else!
Iv'e been getting my haircut by Michel for many years now and i wouldn't go anywhere else, its a delight to walk into the salon and he never fails to impress!
Horrible place they don’t even deserve a star,but with google you need to add one in order to review .Let me start off they treat you like garbage and roll their eyes at you.Their hair brushes are so dirty the water they use is moldy.Avoid I got dermatitis.especially Olivia, and Lorna are horrible unprofessional hairstylists I ever seen better off taking your hair to Supercuts for the same quality.Currently havinh Groupon investigate them.Worst money I ever SPENT
Receptionist "Serenity" is extremely unprofessional. A very rude, inexperienced salon attendant, that could have secured 3 future clients for the salon with two very stylists, at least. She found a way to be abrupt, short-sighted & assinine within 5 minutes of me throwing my cape on & sitting in the chair. The colorist called on her for input, which was a lazy, futile move. Eddie is an EXCELLENT hair tech that listened and coordinated a perfect hair cut at my first visit. Shame that Ifergan allows such a crab to thwart business at the desk.
I got my color done with Carlos for the first time and I had a great experience. Carlos did my color just perfect. My color looks better than ever!
I had my hair highlighted and cut at Charles Ifergan. Nicolette did the color, and Natalia did the cut. I walked out absolutely loving my hair. Nicolette did a great job on the highlights, and Natalia listened to me and gave me the most perfect cut. I will go back to both of these girls every time. Thanks for the great experience!
Darlene has changed the haircut game y’all! My splits? Gone. My roots? Lifted. My ego? Bigger than Kanye’s.
I have been to this place on Saturday for the first time. it was nice place but my hair stylist didn't do a good job once I got home no one liked my hair cut, I had very long hair didn't do hair cut for 12 years so I was hoping to have nice V shape . he said it's V shape but in real it's just an extra piece at the end. And now it's too short which I can't make any changes with it. I wanted side bangs but I don't see that too.
LOVE this salon! As someone who always dreads getting a haircut due to far too many bad ones, I was hesitant to try a new salon after a recent move to Chicago. However, Charles Ifergan Salon has happily changed my outlook on haircuts and I can’t wait to go back. After 2 months, I still love my cut and would highly recommend this salon.
Contrary to other comments about "attitude," I find the atmosphere of the shop to be client-centered, and I particularly like that aspect. They also do excellent work,
Finding a stylist who actually knows how to cut hair. Difficult. Finding someone who will listen to what you want. Very difficult. Finding someone who understands hair, gets the peculiarities of your hair, and can put together what you want with what you need. Impossible. Unless you get a tip from someone you trust, whose hair you've seen in person, and know exactly who did that cut. My friend and I got the tip that Dennis was fabulous. Absolutely true. Came here for years, from when Dennis wore T-strap shoes. He does beautiful cuts. I like the just been ****** look. Slightly messy but perfectly groomed. He knows about colored hair, reverse bleaching, and how to deal with damage. Also love his personality. Highly animated. Talks, gestures constantly. Not just to you. Always entertaining while working. Takes a real interest in all of his clients. To have a great stylist means dealing with this narcissist's paradise, but it is Oak Street. Mirrors everywhere, even in elevators and their ceilings. (
