Thanks Roots Salon

I want to thank Roots salon for the time I worked there. I highly recommend it to any stylist looking for a green,ethical salon to work for. It's very relaxed and friendly with a reggae beat. I'd recommend Keti or Bridgit to any client in the area. However, I'm more of a rocker/electro kinda guy and have moved on to Spoil Me hair salon in Lakeview.

It's the staff! and Allen is a great addition

Like the atmosphere in this west of the Kennedy location. Of course your experience here depends on the stylist, and happily I found Allen Addington who moved to Roots recently. With years of experience, Alan is fabulous working with hair--doesn't create a style du jour thinking it will work for everyone. End result is easy care and manageability, which I love. Alan got the color right as well. He's finished two years at the Art Institute, has a great eye for color and design sense. You will get his full attention in this non-frenetic salon. Go!

Great massages now too!

Just added on a new massage therapist Erica. Got a massage yesterday and it was great. She got all the right spots, and there was relaxing music, hot towels and everything. Very nice and very professional. Will book one again soon cause it was super affordable.

Congrats Roots on the Spiritual Slam Dunk aka Wes and Ryan from Ruby Room!

Wes and Ryan have done wonderful things to my troublesome hair over the past year. They are exceptional and talented individuals.

I would like to compliment everyone at Roots for making my first visit an exceptional one!

Congratulations and Thank You!

I've been reunited with Chicago's best stylist!

Allen is fantastic. He was my stylist many years ago and then I moved away from Chicago. After being away for nearly 10 years, I was THILLED to have found him back! His cuts are flawless. His color choices and techniques will have strangers stopping you on the street telling you how fantastic your hair looks! He truly is an artist in every sense. I'm a "lifer" with Allen and will never let anyone else touch my hair!

Not so much

The type of salon that tends to "overthink" things, tries/wants to be original, when maybe you just want what you're comfortable with and what you want, but they try to make you think they can make you look so much better, and their technique is superb to whatever you had before. Not to my liking.

I always get a great haircut from Allen...

My experience with Allen has been nothing short of fantastic, every single time. He never rushes me, I feel like he almost cuts each strand of hair individually. It's his meticulous approach to cutting and styling that brings me back. His professional, yet easy going attitude allows for me to come in, unwind and relax.

When I followed him to Roots, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice everyone is. When you walk in, the place just smells good from all of the Aveda products. I look forward to going back there.


The Best Artistic Hair Stylist!

I'm so glad I found Allen to do my hair again! He's very patient and actually listens to your ideas for cuts and color. And if you don't have any ideas that day, he really puts thought into making your hair a work of wearable art and makes you your stylish best! He's got tons of experience and has studied Vidal Sassoon, Toni and Guy (you know, the Bedhead people!), Wella, Rusk, etc.

You won't be disappointed!
