    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.

    Annie has been taking absolutely excellent care of my long-neglected quarantine hair! It had been over 6+ months of no color/haircut, and I was not sure if I was a hopeless case! As a fellow cosmetologist, i was super nervous to be a client for the first time in another salon. She gave me the best haircut of my life, my fine, limp, mop has never looked better. She also gave me the perfect balayage! Usually my hair pulls very warm/brassy, and she masterfully managed to give me the perfect pearlescent highlights. I'm in love! There is no one else I would ever trust--Go to her, you won't regret it! Thank you Annie & thank you Salon DJ for the lovely & professional salon experience!

    I went to salon DJ for the first time yesterday. My hair was a mess! It's been falling out due to stress and my old stylist moved. Well, let me start....first of all I was running late. I called to let them know. The receptionist was sooo nice and friendly! Then I got there and met Nikki. We discussed what was going on and what I needed. She was so sweet and understanding. I got shampooed-and that girl was so nice too! My cut was on point! I felt great and my hair looked amazing! I will definitely go there again! It was nice to be pampered!

    I’ve been seeing Nikki Troester for years and she never ceases to amaze me with her ability to turn my vision into reality. Whether I want to go blonde or back to my natural(ish) brunette, my hair always looks healthy and feels great. She’s been with me through my attempts to grow out my hair only for me to get frustrated and ask her to chop it into a bob only she can perfect. I cannot stress how much of a perfectionist Nikki is when it comes to color, cut and styling. Nikki has experience working at NY Fashion Week, creating looks for the whole bridal party, and my favorite, styling my hair for Pirates Ball. Not only is Nikki one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, she’s the consummate professional and truly puts her clients first. I recommend Nikki for a wide variety of services - we have pretty much done everything to my hair except add extensions and I always get compliments!Services: Hairstyling

    Found SalonDJ on Yelp. I'm new to Chicago. And the amazing reviews were 100% accurate!!! As you can see from the pic, my hair was a brassy Covid train wreck of boxed colors. And my last trim was done by my sister in her kitchen with craft scissors six months ago. I was one of many who was laid off during covid. Salon visits weren't in the budget for over a year. I'm finally employed again and having Jim magically transform my color and Valerie give me a beautiful cut... well, it made me want to cry it felt so good. You have to ask for them!! And I forgot the name of the lovely lady who shampooed my hair. Probably because it put me in a trancelike state. Utter bliss. I'm a loyal client forever now! No one else is touching my hair again!!

    An incredible experience at SalonDJ with stylist Karah Deutsche! She transformed my daughter's hair through a masterful cut and styling. She made it feel like silk! Perfectly lovely experience with an amazing person...Karah is a treasure!!
