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!

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

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
Not so much
July 13, 2008
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

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!
