Valentino's Salon & Spa
Joan ~ Naperville, IL
I absolutely love Valentino's. I moved 5 years ago from the far North Shore to the far Western burbs, and tried a bevy of (mostly high-end) salons from Northbrook to Lakeview to Naperville, often with disappointing results. Sue and the staff at Valentino's have definitely shot to the top of my list. Sue does the best consultation I’ve ever experienced. She really listens and makes great suggestions, and she follows through with fabulous results. For the first time in a long time, I really love my hair. When I came to Sue, I had dark brown hair with so much gray coming in that my roots stood out like a skunk's white stripe just a few weeks after coloring. On my second visit, Sue took this mess from skunky to stunning, using my base color as lowlights, lightening up the rest to a beautiful carmel color, with blonde highlights. And to keep the skunk-look away, she colored the roots to match the highlights, so as it starts to grow out, the blonde blends in with the gray so it's not noticeable. Plus, she gave me the best haircut I've ever had at any price! Have I mentioned that I LOVE this place? The quality of Valentino's services have made me a regular client. I can't recommend them highly enough. I've lived in the city, the North Shore suburbs, Evanston, and Naperville, and I've been to a LOT of salons, but Valentino's is hands down, the BEST. Sue is a color wizard, and her cuts are genuinely fantastic. For once, I don't have to wait 3 weeks for my hair to reach the length I wanted in the first place. I love, love, love Valentinos!

Jen the aesthetician at Valentino's Salon is a miracle doctor. I experienced a sudden acne breakout on one side of my face, it was cystical under my skin. I kept picking, squeezing, and scabbing my skin. I was seeing a dermatologist and he prescribed a topical solution and Doryx, huge horse pills which made nauseous. I was also getting weekly microdermabrasions and nothing was helping my skin. I had a couple facials done with Jen and noticed immediate results, the facial peels helped everything come out from underneath my skin. All her products are natural and my skin felt so smooth and soothing after the treatment. I have a new face, Jen suggested a more concentrated peel in the fall/winter time frame to remove the light and dark spots left on my skin from the acne scarring. I will definitely see Jen again, she is so knowledgeable and experienced. I will go back to Jen in a heartbeat, I highly recommend her if you suffer from facial acne issues. I feel great now and am grateful for finding Jen.

It's the best Men's haircut in the area. I have curly very difficult to cut and manage hair. Sue is fantastic genuine and obviously cares about her customers. the kind of place that has been around for years and knows their clients by name. I won't go to anyone else ever

When I first came in I had very dark brown hair that was always impossible to get the color red I wanted out of it. I went to Carrie and she did an amazing job not only did she get the right bright red that I wanted but she used products that didn't leave my hair damaged or even damaged looking. She was very informative on the products she used, which was a big help because I have extremely sensitive skin and scalp. After my awesome color she cut off all the dead ends and even thinned my hair for me to make it easier to style. I love this place and I will be a regular, especially since red is a hard color to maintain but I've gone twice so far and have been over satisfied with the service and work.

I have tried almost every hair salon in Elmhurst & have been unhappy when I walked out. I found Valentino's not only close to home, but a very friendly atmosphere, it is a very clean salon & the personnel know what they are doing. I have very unruly hair & after I walked out happy, I could also care for my haircut. Something I could not do before. I know I will be back again & again.

Been to the salon several times, Sue did mine and my daughter's hair for my wedding in 2010. Very professional and courteous. Also very accommodating to scheduling and stylist is knowledgeable with today's trend and hair fashions. First visited this salon while living in Addison, ad the salon was recommended to me, and I will still (to this day) drive from my new house in Algonquin to the salon in order to get my hair done. Thanks a bunch Sue, you're the best.

This is a wonderful - upscale salon - with reasonable prices. I have my hair colored there regularly. I could not be happier. The color is perfect. They sure know what they are doing with color!!! With the cut they give me I can wear it many ways without much fuss at all. I have had several facials there - really great. I have also used their manicure and pedicure services - wonderful. I have referred at least 10 people there who have become regular customers and are as happy as I am. The staff is very polite and courteous. You could not ask for more in a local salon.

This is my favorite place to go! Sue has done a great job with my hair for the past several years as well as my two daughters. She's always very accommodating as far as getting me in when I need to and working around my schedule. I drive a fair distance to go to her as she offers the best cut and service!
Luda S. ~ Schaumburg, IL
I got my hair dome with Caroline and she did an amazing job. She's doing a color correction on my almost black box color. After the first session my hair wasn't orange but a nice caramel color with highlights. I was very pleased and I am definitely coming back to Caroline to finish the process of going back to blonde.
Maryann D. ~ West Chicago, IL
Started coming here since the salon was taken over by new owner Sue Valentino. It's been a couple of years and I would never go anywhere else. The salon is clean and the staff is very nice and welcoming. Sue is amazing, you can definitely tell she has years of experience behind her. My highlights and color are exactly what I wanted. Sue actually listened to what I wanted and made suggestions which were definitely helpful. I also have been there for facial and microdermabrasion. The experience was great and relaxing, my skin felt amazing. Prices are compatible to the salons in the area. Definitely an A++++ experience.

This salon is wonderful! I have been going to Sue for 2 years. She is very accommodating with your schedule. She listens to your needs and ensures you are happy with your cut and highlight. She also cuts my seven year old daughters' hair and she always looks forward to seeing Miss Sue. I can't say enough good things about this salon. Very clean and inviting. I highly, highly recommend!

I have been going to Valentino's Salon for a little over a year now. It is not very conveniently located for me (takes me about 30-35 min to drive there) but there is no where else I would trust to get my hair done. I have never been disappointed with my hair. Sue does an excellent job with my highlights and cut. I have been coloring my hair for years and it has never looked as good as it does since coming to Valentino's. Everyone there is very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this salon to anyone.
