AS YOU LIKE IT Testimonials
Hugs and kisses to all who have been kind
to take the time to share what they like about us.
Here are some of the nice things they've said.
Sue P I just received yet another compliment
about my haircut and color! … I especially appreciate that every haircut Miriam has
ever given me has continued to look great right up to the time when I decide to cut it again. If you are looking for someone
who listens and collaborates with you when you know what you want (likes it when you bring in a picture) or someone who helps
you create something chic, carefree, and up-to-date when you don’t know what you want – Miriam is the stylist
for you! When Miriam cuts your hair, you will get lots of attention and it will make you feel brand new. As if that isn’t enough, Miriam is so much fun to be with that I always find getting my hair done a relaxing,
refreshing experience. I highly recommend her to young and old!
I stopped in to describe my husband/friends reactions to my haircut-"Fabulous"!
who make certain that you are satisfied with the wide range
of services they offer! Everything from the warm greeting to the great haircut makes this a very special place.
Matt G I've
been going to As You Like It to get my hair cuts for the last 15 + years, it is a wonderful place. In fact, I live in
Chicago around the Ukranian Village area and I make the commute up to Evanston just to get my hair cut here. The atmosphere
is comfortable and relaxed. The service is excellent and my hair cuts have always been great. They are in touch
with contemporary styles and always strive to make sure their work is the best as can be.
Nicole Miriam-I finally made it to St. Louis and just
wanted to say thanks again for all your help with the color catastrophe I was having. I'm still loving my haircut
and so happy to be rid of that ugly black/purple shade I had. I've received many compliments and have passed
your names on to anyone who asks. ...I want to let everyone know what a great experience I had.
Rachel C I came in for a wax (leg, bikini, eyebrow) with Pamela,
and had a really great experience.
Pamela was quick and extremely effective in hair removal - she spoke to me about
my skin sensitivity, checked the temperature, and allowed me to check areas before she moved on. One of my better waxing experiences
A few days after my last haircut with you a woman I didn't know stopped me on the street and exclaimed, "OMG!
You are beautiful! Your hair is perfect! You look like you just stepped out of a french style magazine."
She made my day and I wanted to make yours by telling you. Thanks!
Laura L The
salon is quintessentially Evanston, definitely not a cookie cutter chain! Often, I come in harried and leave feeling
H As You Like It is my oasis. My haircuts are consistently fabulous - I get so
many compliments, I can't count the number of friends and strangers I have referred to her over the years. The music is
always perfect, the art gallery changes regularly. And then there's the candy... I love the exposed brick and high
ceilings. And did I mention the candy? I love As You Like It!
wanted to let you know that I was very pleased with my experience with Liz in March. I really appreciated her thoughtfulness
as well as listening and suggesting what would work for my hair. It has been months since I felt great leaving a salon
– I was smiling A LOT. I will be back!
I went in a couple of weeks ago to try a cut, and it's probably the best cut I've ever had (husband agreed). It
falls beautifully, even with little styling. Went back today for highlights and they look fabulous, like I live at
the beach. Could not be happier with my discovery of this salon.
S As usual, I love my hair. I appreciate what you do for me so much and
As You Like It is such a peaceful, welcoming place.
RJ Liz is my stylist. She approaches my hair with an artistic
eye I have really come to trust. She is not shy about finding out exactly what I have in mind each time, and is always
concerned that I like it, not just a little, but a lot!
Emily L As You Like
It is a funky, comfortable, relaxing space. I often walk in there stressed out in the middle of a work day and I always
walk out feeling a little more relaxed and peaceful (not to mention more attractive). Everyone there is very accommodating
and genuinely nice and they really care that you leave the salon looking and feeling your best.
Joe S I enjoyed extended time in your salon and
gallery, I realize that your services are ultimately about the soul and restoring the self as it buffeted about in our world.
All of the elements of your space add up to this, yet you somehow avoided all of the cliche's that would push people's
buttons in this realm. ...Thank you!
As You Like It is a mix of truly amazing customer service, a vintage small business approach, and vibrant artistic surroundings.
J As You Like It is a wonderful salon, and Liz
gave me a perfect cut! I have already scheduled waxing for later this week, and am telling all my friends.
E Now that I live further south, I really miss As You Like It. It might be the
cutest salon ever. Such a peaceful, homey, gem just north of the bustling city.
They have a library in there where you
can borrow books (with great titles!). There is the sweetest little playroom in an alcove where children can play. They display
and sell local art. Everyone that I have met there seems to genuinely care about the services they are delivering. I
haven't gotten a haircut there, but I used to go get my eyebrows done all the time. Pamela was great. Very attentive.
She also does a nice facial with attention to acupressure points.
Janet G I am not one
to spend a whole lot of time fussing in the morning, so having hair cuts that "work" without much attention on my
part is a must. Here in Chicago, hair can change pretty dramatically. My stylist designed for me, the weather, my lifestyle.
It is not about a cut that only works in front a stylist's mirror with a blow-drier at the ready. It's about hair
that makes you look like your best version as you go about your life. The salon is an oasis without being a "spa".
There is real art on the walls, candy in dishes, a little nook for small fry to play while their "significant elders"
get pampered, and mobiles above the hair-washing sink. And the music is not too loud. World music. Classical.
Susana D The atmosphere is relaxing and welcoming, the styling thoughtful and
attentive. As You Like It features interesting decor, a rotating gallery of compelling art, a full range of services.
This place is a treasure.
Rebecca A.I have finally found someone who is willing to show me what will
actually look good for me and my hair, rather than just capitulate to my uneducated guesses about what I want! Thank you for
being an artist!
