    I came here and got a treatment for my curls from Paige and it was really nice and left my hair shiny, healthier, and super soft! However, Sidney and Robert are the stars of this salon. Their customer service is absolutely top tier. I was having issues with a gift card I was gifted, and Robert was trying his best but couldn’t figure out what was wrong so he enlisted in Sidney, who helped figure out what was wrong. They offered me a glass of wine while they trouble shot their system, and went above and beyond for me till the issue was fixed! This also was at the end of the day and I knew they wanted to go home. Robert and Sidney, thank you so much for your professionalism and kindness, you two are the best!Service: Curly hair

    I am so lucky I found Salon Dj after moving to Chicago from LA! I was so scared to let anyone touch my hair and Val at Salon Dj has been a lifesaver! I highly highly recommend her if you are wanting natural looking extensions! I am obsessed with my hair and so happy to have found my salon!!

    Karah is my newest hair guru! I went to see her because she has styled my friend with the best cuts and style for years. I've been here a short time, and jealous of his hair. He recommended that I see Karah. She delivered the best hair cut and style I've had in years. I feel and look great! Go see this woman or all of the other lovely people at this salon!

    WOW! I took a chance on SalonDJ after two different colorists at Salon 1800 completely failed at giving me the white blonde hair I had before moving to Chicago. When I walked into SalonDJ my once white blonde hair was an ashy brown because of a root tap. I felt terrible and just prayed Jim could make me brighter, if not white blonde like I had been before. I also needed a haircut, so I booked with Karah after reading these two were a dynamic duo. First thing's first - the salon itself is a gorgeous space and the folks at the front desk were super welcoming, offering a variety of beverages. Phew. I already felt better. I was greeted promptly by both Karah and Jim, which I loved because it meant I didn't have to explain what I wanted twice. You can tell instantly that these two have worked together for years because their recommendations play off one another. Jim would say or suggest something and then Karah would complement it. They seemed to really "get it" and when Jim went to mix up my color I was feeling confident, but not sure - I had been recently wronged twice and was still nervous. I won't go through all the details of the next four hours Jim and Karah spent on my hair but suffice to say they absolutely nailed it. Jim exceeded my expectations. I'm a bright blonde again and feel like myself. We both agreed that the next I see him I can be platinum. Karah cut my hair afterward and took so much time making sure we preserved length while cutting off the split ends. I'm SO happy with my hair and glad I found these two. Not only are they extremely talented but also fabulous to talk to - I couldn't have felt more comfortable while I spent five hours here (I was even offered - and accepted - wine as the afternoon went on). I should also mention that SalonDJ carries top-notch products, including Kevin Murphy, Olaplex, and Oribe, and Karah gave me some great recommendations without being pushy. Like most blondes, I am SO particular about my hair. I can't recommend Jim and Karah enough and already booked my appointment to see them again in six weeks!

    I wanted to wait almost 8 weeks before I wrote a review. I think that there are two crucial elements to a great haircut/color: 1) loving the haircut and color at the salon and 2) loving how it grows out/how the color fades. Let me tell you.....this salon has beyond exceeded my expectations. I LOVE THIS PLACE and it will become my permanent salon in the city.(Pictured) My hair was extremely long, damaged from old balayage, split ends, and my hair was thinning. Annie COMPLETELY saved my hair. I wanted to go dark (also pictured) without looking ridiculous, and she was so comforting and professional as she brought my hair back to life. Everyone was so kind and so nice, which made me happy the day of my appointment.Today, my hair has nicely grown and the color has faded slightly into almost my natural color. Annie gave me tips and product recommendations that helped keep my hair looking just as good as it did when I left. I can't wait for my appointment coming up and 100% recommend you choose to get your services done here!Services: Hair colouring

    Have been going to SalonDJ for a few years for haircuts and more recently partial highlights. I always see Valerie and couldn’t be happier with my cuts and color. Highly recommend this salon—and particularly Valerie!

    Best salon in the city. Stylist named Karah is beyond awesome. Be sure to request Karah.

    I've been looking and trying out different stylists in the city for almost two years now. Finally came across Jim's Instagram and could not be happier. He turned my ashy gray/blonde hair into the most beautiful California-esque blonde I've had yet. 100% will be seeing him again! The vibe of the salon was so fun and urban too! Did not disappoint!
