Salon MVPs: Which Stylist Does Your 'Do the Best?

Nominate your hair stylist as a Patch Salon MVP, and he or she might be profiled.

People are particular when it comes to choosing a doctor. They do their research to find someone who knows what he or she is doing, is covered under their insurance and has a good bedside manner.

But that's nothing compared to what some people will do to find a good hair stylist that they trust. Sure, a doctor takes care of your health, but your stylist does something more important—He or she makes your hair look good.

At Patch, we want to spotlight those stylists who know how to do up a 'do and make their customers happy. That's why we want you to nominate your stylist for our Salon MVP. Tell us why you're loyal to him or her and what keeps you coming back in our comments section.

While you're at it, give a shout out to the salon your favorite stylist works at in our Patch Places business directory. Think of your recommendation as a public service, telling residents the best places in to take their locks.

Erica Cullen at Hair Trenz is my absolute favorite stylist! All the ladies at Hair Trenz do an excellent job, but Erica has been doing my hair for over 10 years, and she never disappoints! She always makes me laugh and leaves me in a great mood! I have very difficult hair and altho I've tried others when Erica wasn't available, no one has ever come close to her skills! When I had chemo, and needed my head shaved, Erica was there. When I needed a wig, she was there. When my daughter got married and I didn't want to look like I was wearing a wig, Erica came through again! My daughters, other family members and friends are now clients of Erica's, as I get compliments all the time! I told Erica if I ever win the lottery, I'm buying 2 lots, one for me, and one for her beautiful family, so I can have a full-time stylist!

I have been going to Sheila Wagner @ Vagabond's in Tinley Park for years. She is the best stylist for me hands down. I never feel apprehensive or nervous about a style or color because she knows her stuff. Her salon is impeccably clean and all the stylists are top notch. It's one stop shopping - hair, nails, etc. Give her a try, you won't be sorry.

All the staff at Sona Bella are beyond what one person could ever dream of for their stylist. Not only are the patient in understanding what you're looking for in your hair cut, but will work with you as hard as they can to get you the exact look you want! They really make you feel like you're family there. Stop on by one day, grab a coffee or tea from the k-kup maker and enjoy an affordable, comfy and welcoming hair experience!

Beth at Sona Bela is the Best! She's always makes my hair look great and I trust her completely. After going to her for years I know mostly just tell her to do what she wants and I'm never disappointed! I'll never go anywhere else!

Beth @ Sona Bella = For The Win

Beth at Sona Bella! She is simply amazing. She is fantastic at everything she does and when you leave you feel like a million bucks because she did a fantastic job.I have always gotten compliments on my hair after she has done it...EVERY TIME!!

Beth at Sona Bella! Gorgeous "look like you've been on vacation" highlights, perfect hair color that compliments my skin tone and eye color, fantastic mani/pedis, quick brow waxes, the woman can do it all!!! Beth always asks me the important questions like how do I wear my hair, how do I part my hair, what were my concerns (transitioning between my previous dyed hair color & my natural color, and *gasp* creatively hiding a few gray hairs I noticed, eeek!). She always addresses my concerns. If you want to strut out of a salon, feeling like a million bucks (in my head, I'd like to think I'm a Victoria's Secret model) make an appointment with Beth! Beth works her magic with a reasonable price tag, and a ton of personality!
