haircut by Dennis.
By Anne S on Feb 15 2018
Hi Charles, it was good to be back, and to talk with Dennis! As usual, he gave me an excellent cut - I like the way he thinks about it first, then talks to me, then cuts away, and I'm pleased with the result. He's always fun to talk to - I can't imagine him not talking, and of course I like talking too (fortunately!)
I'm not sure if I'm supposed to check those 5 stars - I did it anyway. I guess if I wasn't pleased I'd just leave the one checked, and the rest would remain blank?? Maybe we should add one more, which would be about the quality of the conversation??
It's always fun to come to your salon. Good vibes, good friendly people, etc. I believe all these things contribute to the quality of the experience - you walk in, and feel right away that this is a good place to be. Yes, the more I think of it, I really would count that as deserving of another star.
p.s. I must also mention Curtis. Dennis sent me over to him, when I asked him what color lipstick I should have, and Curtis was someone else who fits in with the culture of the salon. I was delighted with his thoughtfulness, and the way he is completely focused on what he's doing - it becomes a conversation between him and me and the lipstick and other things i might buy. He told me I could just put whatever I bought into my pocket,(no, not with theft in mind!) which meant I could pull it out to use whenever I wanted to. I enjoyed that practical advice - it's so much easier and quicker to do it that way, instead of having to fish through the contents of my purse to find whatever it is - that could easily take at least five minutes. Thanks, Curtis for that idea.
Good lord, it's more than time to stop!
Anyway, Charles, you've got a great place and staffed it with good people - I feel that you really enjoy it all, and thank you.
Apr 26 single process color with Miriah and cut with Olivia
By Marcia P on Apr 26 2017
As always, both Miriah and Olivia are skilled, professional and, most importantly to me, genuinely concerned that I leave the salon happy with my hair. Charles, you are fortunate to have these two women representing your business.
By Lauren S on Mar 15 2017
Overall I had a really great experience! The salon it's self is gorgeous and I was skeptical at first to go due to some bad reviews on Yelp but don't listen to them. My stylist was extremely friendly and listened to how I wanted my haircut. The receptionists and the girl who does the shampooing and treatments, such as the conditioning treatment which I received, also treated me nicely. My hair however does feel slightly dried out from the blowout and I would have liked the stylist to use some type of heat protectant before she started. Other then that, I was very pleased with my visit and I will defiantly be going back to the same stylist.

Really great services
By Janet G on Nov 29 2016
Like this salon a lot. Samantha always makes my my color look amazing. Jessica has a fantastic technique and I am always happy with the results I'd like a different set up for the changing area but that's a small issue.

Always love coming here!
Hair cut from Dennis
By Anne S on Aug 24 2016
you know, of course, what I'm going to say... Dennis, needless to say, talked non-stop, but I had no need to go to sleep! I did pretty well myself, but I don't get in as many words per minute as he does!! He's phenomenal that way..Great hair cut, a bit of political discussion of course, lots of laughs, it was good just like it always is. The client after me joined in the conversation, which is often how things go - I always enjoy coming to your salon, much fun and good hair, what more could one ask?
I still laugh about the time your reproved Dennis for letting me go to sleep..
You have a good place, Charles, every which way. All the best to you,
from Anne (Schultz)

Best hair stylist I've ever had!
By Amber W on Jun 30 2016
I have now had the pleasure of having Jillian highlighting and coloring my hair twice now. I have been searching for years for a colorist with her skills. She seemed to know exactly what color I wanted to achieve and was very good at communicating which seems to be a very good quality in a colorist I've noticed. She is so nice, funny and a good listener. It was nice to see her today and share a few laughs and I left an extremely happy customer. Not only is she good, but she is fast, not in a rushed way, but I've usually spent hours getting my hair fully highlighted and I think I was there for maybe one hour and 40 minutes, which is pretty reasonable. The gentleman who washed my hair was so kind, funny and we had a great conversation too. He was very kind and even offered to go downstairs to get me a diet pepsi (which I declined of course), but what a nice offer. The few staff I have worked with have extremely impressed me. I feel very lucky to have my hair in such good hands. The salon is also really great at emailing promos etc., now and then which is great! I would recommend Jillian to ANYONE, especially blondes, she really knows what she is doing!
Ifergan Makes America Great Again
By Joe V on Jun 23 2016
Well the presumptive nominees of both parties seem short on answers, Ifergan keeps on keeping on. I have been a client since 1987, and have worked with my present stylist for 15 years (name withheld to make sure I can still get an appointment) and she is fabulous. JV
Love my new hair!!
By Deborah C on Jun 23 2016
Miriah and Gia were amazing. This was my first experience at Charles Ifergan and it was great. They were super accomodating to my schedule, even when I called last minute to try to add on a color service. The staff was great- they listened to what I asked for and did a fantastic job executing it! I will definitely be back.
Great experience at Charles Ifergan
By Laura K on Jun 17 2016
Every time I get my hair cut at Charles Ifergan, the staff is always friendly and work with utmost attention to detail, listening to my wishes for what kind of look I'm desiring, and executing their jobs with professionalism. The salon is always maintained well- clean- and also, it is very nice that they maintain a refreshing glass canister of ice cold water w/ lemon, and the delicious tea-- wish I could make it at home like that...:)

my day with Armand and Giselle
By Catherine D on Jun 03 2016
the wonderful artists in color and cut and style---full highlights and cut and blow dry--- Armand and Giselle, gave me a beachy bad ass look. Loving my latest hair, but, it's no surprise. I've always gotten nothing but the best from the service of the artists at Charles Ifergan Oak Street. It's consistently great work. Merci! catherine dunlap
By Katie K on Jun 02 2016
Mariah has been my colorist for over 5 years! She is amazing, gives great suggestions, and is just an all-around great person!!! I highly recommend her!!! And love my hair color with her!!!
By Gabriella M on May 31 2016
Excellent service. No wait. George and Jessica are the best! Recepcionists were very welcoming and corteous.
By June G on May 27 2016
By Leslie S on May 25 2016
What can I say, other than she is simply amazing! I truly believe she is one of the best colorist out there. Especially in Chicago. She is beyond talented, and has such a grasp on blondes. She keeps me up to date on how to maintain the healthy blonde. I have been to so many throughout Chicago, and I can't say anyone stands up to the caliber of Kennedy. Love this gal, and what she always amazes me with every, single visit.
By SANDRA H on May 25 2016
Olivia always does a great job cutting my hair. I enjoy chatting with her during my visit and will continue to visit the salon.
By Sheryl D on May 24 2016
I have been coming for haircuts and color for over 30 years. That should say it all! Nobody but Charles has put a scissors to my hair since 1981.

Charles, You know I am your biggest "fan"! Whenever I leave your shop, I feel clean and revived. Thank you for many years of kindness and dedication to doing the best job of making me presentable again. Love you, Sandy Arnold
Color with Ceci, cut with Olivia
By Susan O on May 07 2016
I absolutely love Ceci and Olivia. They are so professional and terrific. Olivia changed my whole look and made me wonder what I was doing for so many years with my previous hair dresser. Ceci has worked so hard to get just the right color combination for me, and I so appreciate that.
Only one suggestion - it would be nice to have more than one person to check people out after services. It often takes a long time wait to pay. Seems like a high-end salon should have that. Other than that, I have no complaints and love going to Charles Ifergan.
By Ewa Z on May 06 2016
As always I love your place and all people are so nice and smiling but Kennedy color lady and Charles are THE BEST !!!
Thank You for great place to take care of my beauty !!
5 star rated!

Jamie, my stylist is great. Very talented and great person
By Kayla M on Apr 30 2016
On a scale of 0-10, Giselle rates 100. As a client at the Oak St. Location for 30 years , many good stylists have worked on my hair. I say worked on because my hair is thick, wavy, and difficult to style unless you are patient and an expert. Giselle has never been thwarted by the time it take to cut, dry, style, and use the keratin treatment on my hair. She is the very best and a nice person as well.
Thank you for all you do, Giselle!
Ryan is my star
By Katie H on Apr 29 2016
Ryan is great about listening to all my concerns as I know my hair well and what I like and do not like. I also know the type of hair that I have and what I can do to it once I am on my own. Most stylist put out the same cut over and over because they have perfected it or its in style, never really listening. Women are very particular, however they mostly do not assertively advocate, I do. If I am not satisfied especially since I have a consultation while hair is dry with stylist, I do not need to return. Competition is high and cost to women not cheap so I move on. Ryan listens, verifies as we go along and I am satisfied. He is a gem!!

By Jackie D on Apr 22 2016
Ryan was my Stylist. He listened to how I wanted my hair cut and the look that I would hope to achieve. The final look is even better than I anticipated! He added a few suggestions of his own which made my cut and style so beautiful.
Ryan is professional and very upbeat! The total experience was wonderful. Highly recommended!
By LIBBY G on Apr 21 2016
Carlos highlighted my hair and it's the best color I've ever gotten! It's perfect!

Miriah and Eddie 4/15/16
By Theresa S on Apr 17 2016
Miriah has been coloring my hair for years and she is the best especially with those resistant grey hairs, she is always accommodating and on time as well and Eddie has been cutting and styling my hair for many years as well.....he is consistently on time and he listens when I talk about what I would like to do and then is able to execute....they are outstanding!
By ROSALYAN K on Apr 16 2016
I am incredibly satisfied with Rachel ( she is a very talented hair cutter !) and Miriah, who colors my hair

One in a Million.. The Best
By Darlene C on Apr 13 2016
First class beauty shop. I feel well taken care of, very welcome and surrounded by excellence. Charles is the only one who has cut my hair for over 30 years and his team is the best and incredibly talented. When I enter the shop I feel like I'm at home with friends. It's the best, year after year. I get compliments on my hair all the time. ALL THE TIME!

By Molly I on Apr 12 2016
I had color with Anyssa - she's just a joy! Very knowledgeable, great with suggestions and very aware of what styles/color suit her clients. She's great to talk with, too! Such an enjoyable experience. Jimena washed and glazed my hair - she's great to talk with and the water is always the perfect temperature! Gia cut and styled my hair and it's just perfect every time. She's fast yet thorough and always has great ideas for new styles. Check-in and Check-out process is fast and pleasant, too!

Hello to all;
It is with great pleasure that I take the time to review such a fun, up-beat, professional and diverse salon. When you walk in, you are greeted by hip front-desk associates who are ready to point you in the right direction. The music is on, the blow-dryers are going and there is an exciting BUZZ about the place. There are young employees and stylists wearing the latest trends and there are the stylists that I have seen there for years...just as busy as ever!
The prices are very reasonable despite the 'aura of an expensive Oak Street Salon.'
Rachel already has great name-recognition as the extension specialist. Ask for: Rachel at Ifergan!
I had Jillian as my colorist; fun, professional and she almost sounded like an ER Doctor.."I need 2 minutes, then a wash, glaze and towel..." My hair is perfect every time.
The salon is clean, well-stocked, organized, the magazines are up to date, the crowd is diverse and it's fun to 'people watch.' Men, women, children, local-models and even a classy elderly lady in a walker were there on a Saturday morning. At first, I was worried that I was too 'boring-lawyer' and plain to go to this salon, but I felt great upon entering and most of all, exiting with my new look! Keep up the great work.
Five stars for Charles, George, Carmen, the Front Desk team, Joe....well..just everyone who is there to offer outstanding service! Altho I haven't yet had the pleasure if Dennis doing my hair, he is always so welcoming! The staff is a wonderful reflection of the professionalism, warmth and expertise if the man.....Charles Ifergan!!! Warmly, Debbie Krolik

Charles did a fantastic job of cutting my hair. The gal who blew dry my hair was charming and efficient. Overall, I LOVE Charles and all my experiences at his salon and would never consider going any where else.

Dennis Boardwine haircut...
By Joanne V on Mar 30 2016
Dennis is the BEST. Not only is he an awesome hair stylist, but he is so much fun to be around, i always leave your Salon feeling pampered and with a Wonderful hair style. I have
never had a hair stylist like him and I have had many hairstylists over the course of my life.
Jo Romano Butler's thoughts :
By Josephine B on Mar 29 2016
I left your salon for a few years and returned! I could never find anyone to truly replace Sayuri, Kennedy and Luda. I do have mani, pedi at Renew Spa with Irina . Basically she was an Iferigan girl. Therefore , I feel your Salon has the most professionals of anywhere I've been.
It is my pleasure to b a patron of your salon. THANK YOU

I've had Luda shape and color my brows for a while now and it makes such a huge difference in how your face and eyes look. Luda is the absolute best!
Dennis gets a 10
By Diane D on Mar 25 2016
Can't think of a nicer, more qualified stylist. Is a true gentleman. Drive more than 20 miles just for a "Dennis" cut. If he retires, I am getting a wig.
By Susan A on Mar 25 2016
Michael gives the most up to date and elegant haircuts ever! He is the best. Service at this salon --from the shampoo ladies to the friendly front desk -- is impeccable.
