My first time here and I absolutely loved it. The atmosphere was very stylish and comfortable. The staff was very nice and helpful when it came to lightning my hair up. Clarissa worked with me and she was very cool to work with. Walked out of there feeling nothing but fabulous! Mahir, the owner is one of the coolest people I have ever met.

I love my new color! I would have never chosen this color however, it fits me perfectly especially with my new short haircut. Love it!

I went to Matthew on a referral and he did not dissapoint. My hair is just as fierce as I wanted without looking too crazy. The next day someone stopped me on the street to compliment me on my hair and ask if I am loyal to my stylist. I am now! Couldn’t be happier.
— Nichole L.
Courtney is awesome! Not only does she do a wonderful job with her work, but she is such a fun person to talk to while I’m getting my brows done! I love her and will only go to her!!
— Julie H.
Mahir is a master. I will never go anywhere else. His balayage skills are superior and the entire staff go above and beyond to ensure your comfort during your style session. It’s not a haircut or color, it’s literally a styling session-he teaches me how to treat, style, and care for my hair. Love you Mahir!!!
— Sophia H.
Good haircut. Great conversation about Mad Max and genital warts.
— Eric M.
Matthew is so incredibly talented. I won’t go anywhere else. The entire staff is superb, excellent customer service from start to finish. I also love that they text me if an apt becomes available and to confirm. This place is a godsend.

I love coming in to see Caitlyn. She encourages me to try a slightly new style but always reflects how I want to look. I always leave feeling confident, which is so important. No wonder I keep going back

Have been coming here for 9 years. Wouldn’t think of going anywhere else
— Austin C.
This was my first time at Milano. I had tried another neighborhood salon and was extremely disappointed. Caitlin was awesome. She listened to what I needed and made sure we were both on the same page before she continued. I work for a conservative company so naturally I’m nervous with trying anything new. Caitlin totally understood. She gave me a new, stylish cut — exactly what I wanted. I’l be back to Milano soon! Relieved that I finally found a stylist that knows all aspects of her job very well!

I am relatively new to Milano Hair Design Studio, but my experiences have been fantastic. I’m happy to have found my go-to salon in Chicago and would recommend Matthew to anyone looking for a stylist whose skill and direction they can trust. I mean... he IS the Hair Jedi. :)
— Sloane H.
Michael is truly the best!! I absolutely love my new haircut and the highlights! Thank you so much and see you again soon!
— Amy T.
Caitlyn was awesome! She advised my daughter to have a less dramatic change in hairstyle and color. With apprehension, she agreed and was extremely happy with her results.

I have been going to Salon Milano for 6 years, and absolutely love the job Matthew does on both my color and cuts. Everyone there is really friendly, so it’s also a huge bonus that I feel like I’m just hanging out with friends while I’m there. I highly recommend checking it out.
— Kim G.
Matthew is amazing. He is always up on the latest styles and trends in the hair industry. He is excellent at taking the time to ensure the cut is to your satisfaction and that you will be able to style it and have fun wearing your hair different ways. I would highly recommend Matthew and Milano Hair Design Studio.
— Sheila P.
The staff are friendly and always want to make sure you’re comfortable. Michael is amazing for color and cuts. I’ve been his client for years and wouldn’t go to anyone else. Everything he does is tailored to your individual needs, and he’s great at listening to what you want and giving it to you!
— Julie O.
After years of visiting of the same stylist elsewhere and not getting anywhere with requests for an updated look, I came to Milano and met Caitlin. After two visits with her, I know that I have found my new stylist. She listened to my ideas of a fresh look, made suggestions, and I am so happy with the results. Everyone at the salon is friendly and the whole vibe of the salon is relaxed and hip without being pretentious. Leaving my last salon after so many years was somewhat of a daunting experience because there are so many salons in Chicago that I was worried I would also end up unhappy at a new place, but I really lucked out with Milano Studio and Caitlin. I couldn’t be happier with them.

Michael is the best in the business, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else... which is why I fly in from NY! Love his salon, and his staff. They are always friendly, welcoming and accommodating.

Matthew does a nice job and is a pleasure to chat with. He is a little more expensive but worth it since his cuts are so precise and grow out nicely
— Joanna N.
The experience here is one that I would rather keep secret. The color and cut are excellent, the atmosphere is relaxing. The new appointment system made keeping the appointment a breeze.
— Kristina S.
Mahir is AMAZING! He not only fixed my hair but made it look amazing as well!!
