“After moving to Chicago from Atlanta, I bounced around looking for a salon that I absolutely loved. It took more than four years for me to find it, but I did! Hands down, Edit Salon is the best cut and color in Chicago. The stylists are knowleable and patient. I really feel like they take my ideas and opinions to heart – great listeners! They take their time with each client and you can tell they’re passionate about their work. If you have time to book in advance, I recommend Allison for color and Patrick for cut. I’ve tried to go silver-y blonde for many years, Allison is the first person to absolutely nail it! My color turned out so lovely the last time I visited, I teared up a little during the blow out. Patrick makes you feel like a celebrity the instant you sit down in his chair. Cannot recommend them and this salon enough. The appointment pays for itself in compliments.” -JB Becker

“I brought my 7 year old daughter here to donate her hair for Wigs for Kids. It was easy to get an appointment, and all of the staff were kind, patient, and made my daughter feel so comfortable with the process. When they finished cutting the hair for the donation, they gave her a beautiful haircut and she left with a big smile!!! I was very impressed with all of the salon staff, and highly recommend this salon!” -Malka Frazin

“I religiously go to KC salon every 3 months to keep my hair healthy and I love seeing Travis! Once you walk in Bobby is there to take your coat and offer, tea, water or wine!

“This shop is wonderful! The staff is super friendly! The space is very inviting from the moment you walk in the door. They offer you a cookie and check you in. I had my hair bleach, dyed, washed, cut and styled. My stylist Stephony did an amazing job transforming my multi color black, pink (and later discovered blue hair) into a stunning multi layered purple!

Yolanda performed all the services for me. She’s quite professional and very knowledgeable about the products. I think out of all the people I’ve gone to for my eyebrows, Yolanda is the best. She also fixed my haircut. If you come here, ask for Yolanda – you will not be disappointed.” -Thongsy Singvongsa
