Sine Qua Non
Went to Summer b/c I read a review online that said something like, she's best curly cutter in Chicago. And indeed--she has given me the best hair I've had in my adult life. Saw a lady in the locker room with a good curly cut and told her "I admire you do." She said it was by Summer at Sine Qua Non. Not even surprised. Reputation as best curly cutter in Chicago = totally deserved. She's also kindof personally inspiring. You should go.

I second (third, fourth) all the Libby reviews on the site. She's fantastic with curls. I've gone to so many salons over the years, and she really seems to get it. She listens well, and is easy to work with.

Libby is great, she listens to you and gives you honest professional opinions. She studies your curly hair before she cuts and as she cuts it, to be sure it will fall right. She takes her time and is precise. After she cuts your hair, she dries it to see how it would look dry and then she again studies it and makes adjustments as she sees them. Amazing. I will go to her from now on, she loves curly hair and you can tell by the time and care she puts into making you look your best!!!!

Summer is *amazing*. She has lovely curly hair herself, and really gets how to take care of it. I have thick, 3b-ish hair, and she has given me consistently wonderful haircuts--initially fixing a terrible haircut from elsewhere, and then helping me go really short, with bangs. Traditional, super hip--whatever, she can do it.

Sam is awesome, I've gone to her for a long time (and I live out of town now!), and many of my friends have as well. She listens and also seems to know just what I want, both for cut and color. She's also really great to chat with, high energy and fun. She really knows what to do with curls!
