I wanted a big change from same long length of hair transform to bang and I'm absolutely satisfied! The Paris salon use Aveda products which I so appreciate because it's natural hair cosmetic! The design of the salon is absolutely stunning and cozy! I can just recommended!"

"I was very unsure about going somewhere new, just like anyone else. I made the appointment with Paris Hair Design because their hours fit my working hours. I loved the look of the place when I walked in, but still was nervous how my hair would turn out. I was introduced to Rachel my stylist. We talked for a bit and I showed her a picture of how I would like my hair to look. She did an amazing job. I have received so many compliments on my hair and I can't remember a time I was this happy with my hair. Thank you Rachel!! I will be back in July."

5-star rating for Paris Hair Design "This is THE BEST hair salon in Grayslake! I have been coming to Paris Hair Design for 6 years and have always had a great experience. Amy, the owner, does my hair and is talented beyond her years. Amy always always listens to what I want to do with my hair and never fails to give me exactly what I ask for. She is the only stylist that colors my blonde hair the color I want and she always gives me great tips for styling and tells me which hair products are right for me. My daughter has been to several of the other stylists at Paris Hair Design - Rachel, Brittnee, and Shalina - for haircuts and gorgeous highlights and had gotten beautiful up-do's when she was in high school from Erin. The newly located salon has a really cozy atmosphere, everyone is friendly, and you feel relaxed as soon as you walk in the door, plus the prices are low compared to where I used to go. If you're thinking of trying a new salon, I'd highly recommend Paris Hair Design."

Turns out it was the owner that cut my hair. She was very easy to talk to and welcomed me back. Awesome place to do business."

"Love, love, love getting my hair done by Kira. She always does a great job with my hair, I never have a single complaint. Salon has a great downtown location and cozy feel."

~K.P., Round Lake, IL 
(from Yelp!)
5-star rating for Paris Hair Design "First let me start with a disclaimer: I'm a bit of a haircut snob. Paris Hair Design is a gem which is located in downtown Grayslake. As soon as you walk in the door it's apparent that this place has style. Very cool decor, good music that you can hear but isn't too loud like some places. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I got my hair cut by Kira... very cute blonde who obviously knows how to cut modern men's hair with style. First she took the time to ask all the right questions and really find out what I wanted. Second, the shampoo they use is an AVEDA men's product that smells amazing (Ineed to get some!). Lastly, couldn't be more happy with my hair. She didn't rush through the cut, but didn't take all day either. Very pleased and will be back every 2-3 weeks for the same. I highly recommend PHD."

5-star rating for Paris Hair Design "My 2 daughters and I have been going here for about 3 years now. Rachel does our hair and we love her and PHD Salon. I love that the salon has unique products and Rachel always takes the time to listen to what we need and want. Can't wait to visit the new location!"

"The salon is very clean and does not smell like chemicals. I had a consult with Kira and 2 weeks later my new do. I absolutely love it. I brought in a picture and as Kira was doing the foil wrap she would ask me questions, we adjusted a bit and I got exactly what I needed. I have had so many nice comments on my hair. Thanks Kira."

  "Erin is Fabulous!
Hello! Just got home from your salon and am so happy. Erin was great. I felt completely comfortable with her skills. I could tell she was talented by the way she conducted my consultation. I got a major change to my cut and color and it turned out amazing! I had had some very bad experiences recently and had almost given up finding a good stylist. I found her at your salon. I am so happy!"

  "I had to find a salon in or near Grayslake to get my hair and make-up done for my son's wedding. I was impressed with Paris Hair Design's website and videos on YouTube so called and talked with Amy. She was very friendly and very quick with getting back to me after I emailed her with questions prior to my appointment.

My stylist was Kristine, I brought in my laptop to show her pictures of the look I wanted to go for, which was retro, along with the top to my dress and my jewelry to help her with the color choices for the make-up. She didn't laugh at me! She understood exactly what I was looking for. I also appreciated her opinions on what would and wouldn't be right for me. Kristine did an amazing job, I was so happy when I left. I got so many compliments that night, everyone said I looked gorgeous. I couldn't have been happier with the way Kristine made me look and feel.

I wish I lived closer to Grayslake, I would definitely go back again."

"I brought my two little granddaughters for hair cuts last Saturday. I am taking a moment here to send my thanks to Shalina. Shalina was able to transform my descriptions of the look their mother was trying to achieve into the perfect hair cuts. Their mother Jenny was ecstatic. Alexia's hair was perfect, the blending, the shape, the length. Kendall's hair was perfect as well, beautifully layered, the torn and ragged ends gone. Jenny and I both appreciate the time Shalina took to give the girls a little pep talk about their future hair cut goals. Thank you again."

  "I am new to the Grayslake area and was looking for a place to enhance the red color of my strawberry blonde hair. Seeing the good reviews, I decided on going. The color is wonderful. Just what I wanted. The stylist I saw was very nice and did a great job. The place looks very pleasant and I enjoyed the complimentary coffee. A great hair salon in my opinion. I definitely plan on coming back for hair cuts and touch ups."

"I initially went to Paris Hair Design for my wedding. They were the best. They treated everyone great and paid close attention to detail to mine and the bridal party's requests. Everyone's hair and make-up turned out amazing. My hair and make-up was absolutely exquisite. I could not have been happier. I now go there for all of my hair needs. I want to give an extra special thank you to the owner Amy who always makes my experience at her salon phenomenal."

  "Since moving to the suburbs last year, I've had a lot of trouble finding a salon that I like without having to travel back into the city. I am so thankful I did my research and came across Paris Hair Design.

I have a pixie cut and like to change it up quite a bit; Amy has once again cut & colored my hair to perfection. She listened to what I had to say, voiced her own opinions, and then promptly got to work. She has been able to achieve exactly what I have asked for each time I have been into the salon while leaving my hair looking healthy.

The salon is clean, well apointed and very comfortable. I also like it that the chemical processes and the haircuts are done in separate areas/rooms.

Thank you Amy for finally giving me what I need in a salon and stylist."

"I absolutely love Paris Hair Design! It's a beautiful salon with a relaxing atmosphere. Demetra is the absolute best! Whether I need a trim or a totally new cut or to change up with some highlights, she is amazing. She listens to what you want and makes your hair look beautiful every time. If you are going anywhere other than Paris Hair Design, your hair is suffering! Call and make an appointment so you can have beautiful hair like I do! :-)"

"I Love Paris Hair Designs! They are so friendly, they all talk to you if they have time and not just your stylist. Though the stylists are extremely professional, they listen to what you want and do just that, or if you want they can give you the latest trends. They are awesome, and the salon itself is impeccably decorated. Well done ladies!"

Went here on a recommendation after another salon botched my hair and I couldn't be happier. It was worth the tears over a terrible place to find this gem. Amy couldn't be nicer but Erin, who did my hair, was fantastic. She was very honest about what she thought she could do, or not, and really listened to my concerns. I'll be back for sure and I'm so glad it looks like I've finally found my salon! I've tried a LOT of places and paid big bucks for no nonsense hair and always been disappointed in the Libertyville/Grayslake area. Not only was this cut great, it was affordable!

Got my kid's hair cut too and she look great! Worth every penny!"

"Worth a visit! Missy does a fabulous job with my difficult, multi-talented hair! Not many stylists are comfortable working with short hair or have the ability to make it look better every time. I also recommend this salon for fair pricing, comfortable & fun atmosphere and good location."

"End of Day 1 after Keratin treatment - used the Enjoy shampoo and conditioner Tammy recommended. No other products. I let my hair air dry and it is super straight with a little bump under at the ends. It would normally take me three different products, blow out and flat iron to get my hair to behave this well!"

~ Laticia M.
(from Paris Hair Design on Facebook)

"Great experience! Highly recommended!
This was my first visit to Paris Hair Design and I must say, that I am more than impressed with the level of service and results. I visited not knowing exactly what I wanted but I knew I wasn't feeling my best and needed a change. Amy spent time getting to know me, my hair and how much time I spend and am willing to spend on my hair every day. She gave me a new look that not only gave my hairstyle added depth, texture, and bounce but she did it all at a very reasonable price. Needless to say, I booked my next appointment before leaving the salon. She also gave me tips on how to style it at home to get the same great results -- and I'm doing it! Amy, you've just gained a lifelong customer and I'll be sending all my friends!"

(from DexKnows)

This Salon is great! I reccommend this place to everyone, even those on a budget. Prices are very affordable and you get great hair! What a great deal! The owner is very friendly and always makes her clients happy. Amy is wonderful at her job and an even better person!

  "You have to try this salon! I was hesitant to try a new salon but Amy did a fantastic job on my hair. I got a haircut and full foil highlights for much less than I was paying at O Salon. The color was absolutely perfect and the cut was really cute. Amy is so easy to talk to and her salon is small, but adorable. I LOVE my hair and will defintiely be recommending her to family and friends."
