I just had my hair cut here for the first time 5 days ago. Its always nerve racking going to a new place, but I was blown away at the attentiveness of Megan. She listened to what i wanted and even knew what would look good for my face shape. I am so happy with my choice of trying Exposed. she cut about 18 inches off gave me a nice layered haircut. She also gave me additional options of places to donate my hair since the place i was going to was not longer accepting donations at this time. I highly recommend this salon. More...

I have been going to Anna since she was a college student in Naperville working not too far from where her Salon is now. I've watched her grow into a compassionate woman with so much to offer to her clients and continues to learn new techniques. She has started up and relocated her Salon and continues to grow her business with an excellent staff along with wonderful stylists. I would recommend Exposed to anyone looking for a simple cut to a new creative look. I have always trusted Anna with my hair for 20+ years and l have always been happy with the results. Try Exposed . . More...

Anna and her associates are the best! They always do a great job with my hair and eyebrows, and they are always accommodating for changes of appointments.

Love their new space! So clean and spacious. I've been seeing Santos for 8 years and for good reason. He does the best hair cuts and color I've ever had. Will be back soon for my next cut with Santos! More...

Why have I never found this place before? The new building is pristine. All of the staff was very attentive, considerate and wanted to ensure I got exactly the style I wanted. (Not always common practice). I will completely be back for my next hair dye and hair cut! More...

I had Megan cut my hair she is so sweet and knows what she’s doing. She gave me tips on what leave-in conditioners and oils that will work with my hair as well :) Found a keeper for sure! Thank you Megan

The stylist I had been going to forever, decided to further his career and moved on, leaving me and many clients high and dry. Since then, I’ve seen 3 other stylists, who just could not pull off a partial highlight and hair cut! I’ve spent so much money in the last few months trying to find “the one” again.
Exhausted and an emotional wreck about it all, I walked into Exposed, explained my stressfull journey in trying to find someone who gets me and my hair, and without hesitation, I was told that Santos is the one.
They did not lie! Had my first appointment with Santos’s, and I’ll tell you what...he delivered 100 times over.
He was quick, extremely thorough and detailed with my highlights and hair cut. He brought me back from the very dark place I was in.
I have not been this happy with my hair in the longest time!
Santos, you are truly amazing! I cannot thank you enough for bringing my hair back to life. I feel alive again!
Thank you! See you again soon.

The friendly & professional stylists know their craft and the environment is welcoming, clean, attractive & very chic.  I have seen the stylists work with all kinds of styles, from traditional to THE latest thing. They know their products, keep good records on their customers & have great rapport with the young, the old & everything in between. As a customer of fourteen years I would highly recommend Exposed Salon! More...

I have been going to Exposed Salon since their early days in the original location.  Staff have always been cheery and attentive.  Anna gives a fabulous cut and style for my long, layered hair.  My mom has been going to Anna for cuts and color for just as long.  She always loves the outcome and how Anna really follows what she asks for.  Stylists often times try to do what they think you'd look best with rather than what the client likes.  Not Anna.  This weekend I had my first appointment in the new space and I'm in love!  The décor is absolutely fabulous.  The space is so bright and contemporary.  I highly recommend Exposed!

I used Exposed to do my wedding party's hair and makeup. They were so great to work with! I had my hair trial and the first one I had looked beautiful but wasn't exactly what I was looking for so when I came in for the second they comped the fee which was super nice of them to do (especially since it wasn't their fault). My wedding party looked beautiful and they also made me feel great on my wedding day! We also started getting ready pretty early so after moving around alot they also went through and touched up everybody before leaving. So great to work with. Thank you for making my wedding beautiful! More...

When I moved back to the Chicago area from NC I needed to find a new salon. I am pretty picky. I really lucked out when I came here! I have now been going here for years, and I just love everybody!! Exposed Salon far exceeded my expectations from day one, and years later I feel the same way. The best!! How lucky I am!! More...

I found exposed salon in online about 3 years back and from the first time I walked in, I stuck with them. I am not a person who trusts my hair with someone easily. I never felt like giving them a feedback until I was there with them. Now that I have moved out of IL, I miss them already. They don’t just give you a haircut, they make you feel you are the prettiest in the world. I feel that’s something everyone deserves when they go in for a makeover/haircut or be it anything. They really do take lot of effort in doing so, they do the job right and I would say they know what they are doing.Megan is the best, I always prefer her, I am sensitive to pain and she takes good care even when she needs to detangle my hair sometimes. She gave me suggestion and tips to make my frizzy hair look way better. And it really did (I got compliments for my hair way more than what I expected from others outside)All the staffs there are very nice and welcoming, if I go back to IL, I am not going anywhere else I would stick with them..

LOVE IT!Great job from my stylist Anna! She did a fantastic job highlighting and styling my hair plus She was the sweetest person. I also had an olaplex treatment added to my appointment. (Highly recommend) I will be going back for sure and I finally found a stylist I trust...plus I will be taking my little one to her when it's time for a cut because she has curls and not only does Anna know how to cut curly hair but she has curly hair herself so it adds even more trust! Also: Jenn shampooed and assisted in the treatment and preparation, she was extremely personable and kind as well. Overall, of you are on the fence about where to go...go to Exposed!!!*i came back just now to edit and add one more comment after reading other reviews. I am sorry others had a bad experience here but I just had to add something. Other reviewers (2 people that I had read) stated that the positive reviews were fake or that the 5star reviews are friends of the staff..Lol..um...no. I have never met anyone that works Exposed and my review is certainly not fake in fact just to counterbalance these negative reviewers insults to us positive reviewers I will go ahead and add that I am 40 years old and this may possibly be the best salon experience I've ever had.

Exposed is a bonified full service hair salon with an urban energy. Anna is the owner. No matter what, she is sincere and takes a personal interest in her clients. Every time she does my hair, if I change the style or color, she delivers. Affordable prices and a friendly staff deserving 5 stars. More...

Alex is an amazing hair stylist and is so professional! She did my haircut and highlights and I finally got my husband to go to her as well. He was going to a low cost place and his hair was a mess. Alex fixed his hair and it's never looked better! We are clients for life! More...

I can't say enough about the place. I called at 9:06am and was taken within the hour. Loren, the receptionist, worked hard to get me in. Luckily for me, Megan was my stylist. I let her do whatever was necessary to fix the horrible cut i had from another salon. She listened to my few guidelines and she was off. It is an awesome cut on my curly hair.  As for the place itself, yes, it is small and tight, but between the customers and stylist it felt homey. I will be back. More...

If you want a dedicated hair stylist who will work with you to get the hair cut of you dreams go to Exposed Salon.  I have been getting my hair cut by Anna for close to a year and I love this hair style.  Book an appointment - you are in and out within a short time just looking great with a hair style that will last. Highly recommend! More...

My stylist is Megan and I think she does a great job. I tried many people when I moved here but wasn't impressed. I found Exposed Salon on Yelp. Not conveniently located but worth the drive. Megan gives consistently great haircuts and color. I couldn't be happier. More...

I highly recommend this salon for haircuts. I've been consistently getting my hair cut by Jenee for about two years now. I have changed my hairstyle a lot over the years, and Jenee has always been the laid-back stylist I've turned to when wanting to take a bit of a risk. I walked in with medium length ombre hair and plenty of dead ends that reached just past my shoulders and asked Jenee to chop it off to an extra curly chin-length bob. A few months later, I had her cut it into a shorter, edgier pixie cut. When I decided to grow my hair out, I went back in for a trim to avoid the dreaded awkward mullet phase that comes when you're growing out a short cut. The only reservation might apply to women of color: I have hair that is thin and wavy which most American stylists are trained to cut, but like many brown girls know, it's pretty difficult to lift color on our extremely dark brown hair - something that the stylists didn't seem too aware of. I have gotten pretty used to dying my hair on my own, and have determined that I need some pretty hefty dye or some pre-bleaching, but I decided I'd at least get burgundy peek a boos in my non-virgin hair professionally done. I appreciated skipping pre-bleaching to avoid extra damage to my hair, but my 40 bucks ended up yielding pretty invisible results. I eventually dyed my hair again myself to bring out the color.

i highly, HIGHLY recommend this salon. I went in today on a whim for a blowdry and style before an important event, Megan did a fantastic job and was so incredibly gentle with my thick, knotty hair. Also, their holiday coffee- phenom. 5/5!! Will be back for the straightening treatment. More...

Love the haircut and the price.  Much better deal than the twice as expensive Halo for Men that I use to go to downtown.   Katelyn gives a really good, quick haircut and she does a fantastic job of remembering how I like it cut.  the only thing I would like is if she would offer to trim my bushy eyebrows instead of making me ask.  I'm shy like that.

They were running behind, so the receptionist did my shampoo then used a deep conditioning treatment that I kept on while I waited (15 minutes). Jasmine was my stylist and I definitely recommend her. I showed her a picture of what I was going for, then she adjusted it to work with my face shape and styling preferences. It's one of the best haircuts I've ever gotten, she styled it perfectly, and the price was $30 cheaper than my old salon! More...

When I went to Exposed Salon for a haircut and color I was so nervous because I've had the same hair stylist for years but, she recently moved away. I booked with Sara, and OMG she was amazing!!! From beginning to end, we talked and laughed, she made me feel so comfortable and listened to exactly what I wanted! My hair looks so good!! I can't wait to go back to her!! The salon atmosphere was so nice too!! More...

Kaitlyn has been doing my hair since she was in cosmo school.  I am extremely picking and tend to go from black to blonde then back to black quite often.  I have gone to a variety of salons in the Lombard/Villa Park Area...and there are a lot to choose from, but I will continue to come to Exposed to see Kaitlyn.  She is never afraid to try new things or tell me what she wants to do when I am indecisive.  She is super friendly, and fun to chat with.   She is good with Short hair cuts which is a hige plus for me, since my hair nevers goes past my shoulders.You should all try her out!

I had recently moved to Lombard in search of a salon that wasn't overpriced, snobby or pretentious. Exposed was absolutely fabulous. My hair thick black hair had grown from a lob to unruly layers that were constantly flipping out. Janae my stylist cut my hair. I could tell she was really concentrating...while working her magic. She gave me the best angled bob haircut I have ever had! I felt like a million bucks and only paid $38. More...

I was looking for a salon to do my hair and makeup for myself and my wedding party on my wedding day for June 2012. Based on the Yelp reviews and their professional website I called Exposed Salon. I was excited to know they have packages specifically for bridal parties because I wanted a great experience for myself and bridal party overall.I had my makeup and hair trial one week prior to the wedding. I can't remember my hair stylist's name but she was amazing and so sweet. She was also engaged at the time so she was extremely excited to be helping a fellow bride. I also don't remember the lady who did my makeup but she did an equally fantastic job. I am very picky about how my makeup is done. Since I have super fair skin, it is hard to get a foundation that is my skin tone and doesn't make me look orange. She did exactly what I wanted and I felt like a bride!On the big day, I arrived with my bridal party and there was a slight wait. The salon had a bridal party right before us and was just finishing them all up. I loved how everyone's hair and makeup turned out, especially my own! The only thing I wasn't thrilled about this salon is that it is quite tight on the inside. There are a lot of bodies for a small space and it can almost be claustrophobic. As I was sipping a water while getting my hair done I realized that it was covered in hair spray because the ventilation wasn't that good either. I noticed my bridesmaids had the same problem. If you select a package in which they offer champagne for your party while getting your hair done, this could be a major downer. Overall the staff were all super sweet and helpful. Everyone ended up looking gorgeous on the wedding day because of the staff here! I would highly recommend this salon for a bride looking to get hair and makeup for their bridal party. More...

Had a great cut a few months back! I went with a friend and we were both very, very pleased with our cuts. The prices are also very reasonable. The parking lot is a bit confusing when we went but once I called they were very helpful in giving me directions on where to park.  Would definitely recommend! A++++ salon! More...

Have not found a salon that I absolutely love until now.  Because of its Yelp rating, I called and set up an appointment with Sara.  I walked out of that place feeling like a movie star.  I expected the paparazzi to be outside waiting; that's how seriously fantastic and gorgeous I felt! I've got a lot of hair, and when I say a lot, I mean I have to use industrial strength rubber bands to hold my hair up in a pony tail.  It's also super thick and super straight so on most days, I end up looking like The Ring Girl...except not so muddy.  Sara and I decided on side swept bangs and long layers.  My hair actually has dimension to it now.  I'm completely in love with the new do.  Sara also gave me an open invitation to come back if I didn't know how to style my hair after I left; she said that she'd walk me through it as many times as I needed.  I'll probably be moving soon and am really sad that I can't take her with me. As for the space that some Yelpers have commented on, yes, it's a smaller salon.  The space doesn't bother me.  It's not as cramped as some make it out to be.  No one is running into each other, and I'm not running into things.  Pricing for what I left with was more than reasonable.  I usually end up paying more at higher end salons and was never this happy with the results.  Would definitely recommend this place over and over again.

I had recently moved to the area and have been having a heck of a time finding someone who can cut, not butcher, my coarse, thick, curly locks. Yelp sent me to Exposed. Thank you!I went in for highlights, color touch-up, and a cut with Jasmine. Going in, my hair was a nice auburn with bright red highlights in the crown that had just blended in. I was disappointed in the blending and wanted the same bright, vibrant highlights all over but going "POP! POP!" Jasmine suggested lightning the intended highlighted areas. I am down for whatever so we went that route. When she rinsed out the lightener, we discovered awesome lightened highlights. They served as a very nice contrast to the auburn and the random bright red highlight that was still in there. A little toner and my hair now looks like the color of beautiful autumn leaves. It was unintentional but completely amazing!! Jasmine took some of the weight out and changed the angle of my layering in order to avoid the fun pyramid head look my curls can give. I had gotten a good cut before but when curled I couldn't shake pyramid head so I am excited about this switch. All in all, a fabulous experience.Pro-tip: if you go after 3pm, you can park in the lot right next door otherwise you will be ticketed. More...

I moved to lombard recently and have been struggling to find a reasonably priced, high quality salon.  Tried Mario tricoci in yorktown because of the reputation.   They were way over priced for the not so exciting cut and color I received.   So I decided to hit up yelp.   I was able to get an appointment within 2 hours for a cut and color.  I had Jenee, who has been there for about 4 years.   She was great.   She matched my colors perfectly and gave me a fabulous cut without any instruction.  Great haircut:)  Very pleased, will definitely go back.

Anna is amazing! I live in Oak Park and it was a bit of a drive but so worth it. Anna is very talented - my hair color and haircut are gorgeous and I get loads of compliments. I have curly hair and Anna gave me such a great cut and brought it back to life with a lot of bounce. The color looks like my hair was sun-kissed and very natural which is exactly what I requested. Anna is also probably one of the nicest most genuine person I've ever met.  I highly, highly recommend her. More...

I moved into the area about 5 weeks ago. I needed a haircut, so I went to a very upscale salon I had driven past on the way to work. I got the WORST haircut I've ever had. I combed it forward (roman look) to hide as much of the unevenness as I could, but after two weeks, I couldn't take it anymore. Despite my fear that nothing could be done because it was so short (in some places), I decided to take action.I used Yelp! to do extensive research, and ended up making an appointment with Anna, who cut it this evening.Although I didn't hear any trumpets sounding or choruses singing while she was working on me, she performed a miracle. It's not perfect (I knew it couldn't be), but I'd say my hair is a 7.5/10. Considering it was a -25 when I walked in, I am ecstatic about the 32.5-point improvement.In addition, everyone was very friendly and accommodating (despite my arriving 15 minutes late due to heavy traffic). I have already booked my follow-up appointment. I highly recommend Exposed. More...

I have curly hair so I know that I am a challenge for most stylists.  I have honestly never found someone that actually understood how to work with my hair.  I usually leave a salon totally underwhelmed by the results and pull my hair back into a pony tail as soon as I can.This time was totally different. Unfortunately I was about 15 minutes late for my first appointment with Anna (stupid rush hour), and even though I called ahead to let them know, I was definitely expecting some attitude once I got there.  This was definitely not the case. I was greeted with a smile and taken right away to Anna's chair.  We talked about what I wanted to do with my hair and I immediately knew that she was going to be different. We discussed in detail how she was going to cut my curls (rather than chop them off in layers so I look like  a christmas tree!)  She also recommended a great product, and not in the pushy salesy way.  I can honestly say that this was the first hair cut that I have had in an extremely long time that I absolutely loved! I definitely have found my new stylist and salon! More...

Now, I have gotten my hair cut and styled at a lot of places. A few family members began going to Exposed because it was so close to where we live. There really are a million places to get your hair cut in the suburbs, but this place had just opened and the decorating of the salon was very cool so I also eventually stopped in. The cuts were always great, but soon I went away to college and just never made it back in. A few weeks ago I needed a really good hair cut and didn't feel like driving all the way down to the city to the place I have been going for a few months. So, I knew what to do, call up Exposed and try and get an appointment with Anna. She was booked as I expected, but they took my name and promised to call if they had a cancellation. They did, and the experience was as wonderful as I remembered. Love the cut and can sleep easy knowing that I can always count on Anna at Exposed to give a great precision hair cut! More...

Exposed is a great place! the ambiance is excellent. Jasmine has done my hair cut for the past two years, she is extremely personable and provides expert advice and ideas on what would look good on you and also how to maintain and protect your hair. I wish I could get my hair cut once a week to keep coming more often. Prices are very reasonable for the value you get. You should definitely try it! More...

I've been a customer of Anna's for many years, since she was at her first salon down the street, then at Rocky's, and now at Exposed. She's done my hair for everything from trims, to color, to my wedding. My entire family (mom, dad, brother, aunt, cousin) go to Exposed, and I can't say enough good things about Anna and all the employees at the salon.The stylists at Exposed are on point with the latest trends and products, constantly researching and learning more about what's hot in the industry. The staff is very friendly and outgoing while still professional. I've always felt so welcome and I've always known that my hair is going to look fabulous when we're done!Thanks, Anna, Kathy, & all the ladies at Exposed for treating me so well for many years. :) More...

Based on Yelp reviews, I called Exposed Salon to book a drastic change to my hair. I was tired of long, unruly busy-mom hair and wanted something short and sporty and bright. Jenee took plenty of time to go over color choices, cut and maintenance of my new do.She was vigilant about the bleach time for my new bold purple highlights and called in other stylists to assist. They did so happily and when I left, I looked FABULOUS (and still do). Most of the staff was covered in purple dye though lol, but they didn't mind at all.Believe me, I will be back, no question about that. This is hands-down the BEST salon experience I have ever had! Cozy, tidy and very welcoming. And great price too! More...

I am very particular with my hair and Exposed salon did my hair proud. Anna was my stylist and she did an awesome job. I had highlights put in my hair and they were not too bold which was perfect.

I love this place! Anna cuts my hair and my husbands and does an AWESOME job. I actually found Anna through another curly haired girl. It's hard to find someone who works well with curly/wavy hair and knows it-she has it herself. She's knowledgeable of her products which is a big plus, because if you have wavy/curly hair one product usually is not enough. The ladies are so nice here and make you feel like family. It's not no Mario's, it's smaller but the atmosphere is great and you feel like family :) More...

Loved it!  I've gone to another salon for YEARS... but my colorist has been on maternity leave FOREVER.  I found the salon through YELP and decided to give it a shot.  When I called I explained how picky I am, what I wanted and that I was on a short time line. They got me right in with Katie. She listened to me and worked with me to choose the right color combo for my hair.  She put in a ton of foils, just the way I like it! My hair is fabulous!  I am so pleased!  The salon is not fancy but that is ok with me because I don't enjoy going to the stuffy salon's where everyone is dressed like they are going clubbing.  I want to RELAX!  Katie was fun to chat with while she worked on me.  I'll go again - for sure!

I moved to Lombard 1.5 years ago, and I knew I wanted to find a great salon that felt friendly, had great stylists, and reasonably priced. Thank goodness for yelp.com; I found Exposed through other people's reviews! My first appointment at Exposed made me realize right away that I'd be coming back. To be honest, my haircut wasn't quite a miracle (and I don't recall my stylist's name from that visit), but I immediately adored the atmosphere, welcoming attitudes, and camaraderie I saw between the staff members. I was treated very well and left happy. The salon has a colorful, trendy feel to it as well, and I'm all about aesthetics. I made my next appointment with Jasmine, and she was fantastic. Jasmine has the kind of style and personality that I envy. She knows when to be chatty and when it's the right time to have relaxing silence. She is very good at fielding questions and listening to my requests and opinions. I have loved the cuts she's given me, and will definitely go back again soon (my hair is aching for a change!).The price is right (~$35 cut & dry) and I appreciate being able to leave a tip on my credit card. I've also noticed the salon getting involved in the community through events and parties; I dig that! I highly recommend giving Exposed a try. More...

I was referred to Exposed by a co-worker. I have been there twice and Jenee was my stylist. That girl has talent! First visit was highlights and a haircut which I loved! I had an evening appt and when I got home my husband and sons commented on how great I looked. That made me feel good. Second visit was recent and this time Jenee suggested that I get a color touchup instead of highlights. Again, it looked awesome and I want to commend her on great work. More...

I started going to Exposed back in 2007, I absolutely love Anna and Jasmine (who cut my daughter's hair).  I was a little apprehensive at first because no one was ever able to cut my thick massively curly hair just right.  It turns out that Anna's hair is the same way, and she knows just what to do to tame my mane.My sister recommended her salon, and I will never deviate for anything else.  To all of the other ladies out there who think Anna's "friends" are the ones writing the reviews, you're right.  Once you have a great experience with her, you become a friend not just a client.  The salon is in a store front, but so are most businesses in downtown Lombard.  The salon is a little small, but I think that makes it more intimate.  If you experienced super busy times, go on a different day or an earlier or later time, as Tuesdays and Saturdays are always busy and 4-7pm is the peak time.  I always make my appointment for Tuesday at 1:30 and I am usually the only one in there.As for Jasmine, thank you so much for giving my little girl the cut that I have been searching for her to get.  I think it has to be because of the connection the two of you had from when you were at TCD, and she was there for pre-school.  You already had a bond and that made her more comfortable in the chair.  I will be sure you are the only one that touches her head from now on.

After my regular stylist moved four years ago, I have been seeking a salon to call home.  I had read online that the ladies at Exposed are masters of their craft.  However, on the afternoon of my appointment, It seemed that I would not find out one way or the other, as I was stuck in traffic for long enough to know it was time to reschedule.  Kathy, the salon manager, neatly arranged my appointment around my new schedule.  In the background, I could hear sounds of a busy salon and knew that it must have been rather inconvenient to fit me in.  Like a true pro, she made me feel like a priority and never let on.  Upon my long-awaited arrival, I was greeted with smiles and a very welcome cold glass of water.  The salon itself was cozy without feeling cramped, and the other customers seemed happy and very much at ease.  Even if I got a lousy haircut at this point, I probably would not have had the heart to badly review this place, but that is far from what happened next.  I was placed into the capable hands of Diana, who patiently helped me select a style.  I am convinced she is a magician, as she then transformed my rather sad looking hair into a masterpiece of cut and style.   However, the true measure of a haircut is how it looks after the first wash...once all the product and clever maneuverings run down the drain.  Equipped with nothing more than a blow-dryer and a comb, I discovered that my hair didn't look good...it looked amazing!I think I may have received more compliments on this cut than all the elaborate updos of the past. Five stars do not seem to be enough to express my satisfaction and relief; I finally have a salon to call home! More...

Never been to this salon before and had a trial run for a bridal updo. I loved it so much, that I booked my appt for the day of the wedding. 5 bridesmaids and two little girls also booked appts for that morning. We had the entire salon to ourselves that morning...which was fantastic! They also provided a fresh fruit tray, coffee, water, etc. Diana did my updo even better on the day of the wedding! All the girls raved about how nice everyone is and how fun it was to have the place to our own in the morning. She did such a great job, every hair stayed in place (but did not look like a brick) even after my groom accidently dropped me during a "dip" walking out of the church!Have gone back for haircuts and colors. Love them! More...

I personally went through a life changing event and decided to spice my life with extensions.  I have to applaud the ladies at Exposed because they made me look absolutely fabulous and I started to receive many compliments with my new look!  Thanks to Diane, Katie, and Anna for everything!  You girls rock!

I have been a regular customer at Exposed for several years.  I get a color and cut every five weeks- like clockwork.  I am extremely satisfied with the services that I receive and that's why I travel a great distance to receive this top notch treatment.  The stylists are up on all of the latest looks, and the staff is attentive and welcoming.   In the past, I frequented Rush Street salons and up scale salons in Chicago's surrounding suburbs.   I was bothered by the phony, cold and impersonal atmospheres at many of these salons.  Exposed has afforded  me color and cuts equal to those up scale salons along with a warm and personal  atmosphere.  When I leave the shop I feel that I have received high end services in a welcoming and comfortable setting.  The salon has a warm family atmosphere which I really appreciate.  At the same time the staff provides me with first class service.  I am a professional woman, and I don't mind traveling long distances to receive great service.  I recommend this salon without reservation to those who want up- to-date color and cuts without the phoniness of Rush Street.

Overall, great trendy haircut and great service!Atmosphere:The salon is small, but intimate. The owner at the front desk has a cute personality and makes you feel welcome. She'll come by and check up on you too. You can tell the hairdressers love working there. Hair color: I have black hair and didn't want my highlights to be red, which is the color it tends to get. The highlights did have a slight red tint, but after a month, it faded into the exact color that I wanted, which was a dark caramel color.Haircut:I wanted a trendy angled bob with the front longer than the back. My hair ended up exactly the way I envisioned it. It was light and flowy, and not too short.Hairdresser:I had Bianca, who was new. She was very in tune with what I wanted and very down-to-earth. I loved how the owner and other hairstylist complimented her work once she was done with me. If I didn't live so far, I would definitely come back.Cost:For highlights and haircut, $145. More...

I first came to Exposed with my friend Gwen a few years ago since she needed her hair to be trimmed and we were just walk ins. They took her right away. A few weeks later my regular salon in Palatine was moving even farther away and so I decided to try Exposed. Katie cut my hair and it was absolutely perfect. I like to try new things without being too extreme, and she knew exactly what I wanted. After chatting she basically figure out my personality and what I like and my lifestyle and cut my hair to fit! My grandmother also sees Katie! She is a regular there every other Thursday to get her hair touched up. My grandmother likes to try new highlights and Katie always keeps her fashionable and keeps her from having "every other old lady haircut" in the words of my grandma. So not only can Katie cater to a 21 year olds hairstyle and coloring but she does wonders with my over 50 but under 60 grandmother as well (I don't want to put her age because well, I'm sure she'd kill me if she found out I told people!) Every time I am in there it's a great experience, it's always very welcoming. They also are able to take me last minute, my schedule is quite hectic because now I'm a mom and I go to school. Overall, I'd definitely recommend the place, and basically I'd say to see Katie! She's young, fun, and can accommodate anything, as long as you tell her what your ideas are. Most of the time I just tell her to do whatever she wants to my hair because she always does a fantastic job! More...

Here I am again, with another update. I went in for some fashion color highlights (pink and turquoise!), a haircut, and some products I was running low on. I got there early, and as usual, the place was hopping. I must have seen 4 or 5 people leave, all with smiles, and I think a few people winked at themselves in the mirror.....HA! I was in the salon for a few hours-----but I knew that was going to happen, as I had bleach, color, and a cut to get. At no point in time was I sitting around waiting for someone to do something for me----I was being worked on every minute (save the few moments under the dryer that I needed for processing) and despite my difficult request, Anna, Katie, and Megan made it happen. My insane idea for color and placement came out exactly as I had pictured it. Again. After the "big reveal" I started my product shopping. They have a very good selection of Bed Head cosmetics, and their eyebrow pencil is one of my MUST haves. Checkout was a breeze, and my next appointment is booked. More...

I have naturally curly, fine hair, thus, very difficult to cut.  You absolutely need to know what you're doing in order to cut this kind of hair well.  Anna Maria, the owner, is awesome!  I walked in and told her I wanted to update my hair but was nervous given the type of hair I had.  She looked over my hair, made suggestions, showed me pictures and ultimately, gave me a fantastic haircut!  I love it.  Not only is Anna sweet and puts you at ease immediately, but she is great at what she does.  One complaint that I do have is that some of the girls at the salon smoke.  While I believe they smoke outside, there is always a presence of smoke that either wafts in or can be smelled on someone walking by.  Since I am a non-smoker, and look to relax and enjoy myself at any salon I patron, this is definitely something that the salon should work to eliminate.  But, overall, this complaint won't stop me from returning.

I decided to go to Exposed after I read the reviews here on Yelp, and am thrilled with my cut. I have been going to Anna for about 8 months now and positively love the care and attention she gives when listening to what I want, as well as being a courteous, down to earth person. I finally have a great cut for my face shape, and I get compliments on my hair all the time. She also trims my bangs for free between cuts. I have my brows waxed here now as well,  even though it's a little more expensive than some - but you get what you pay for, and they definitely know what they're doing. More...

Ive been going blond for the past 3 years now, with breaks of going darker.  i have never had my hair look so naturally blond before. i get compliments all the time. i referred two girls that worked at a restaurant that i went to the other night.  it was adorable! they came and searched for me to ask where i got my hair done and i told them about this salon.  i think its also really comforting that everyone in the salon, stylists and customers, can easily chat with one another. i def recommend this salon!

I have been to several hair salons in Lombard, and nothing tops the friendly service that I receive when I walk in the door at Exposed.  I was tired of all of those "attitude" salons where no one says hello to you...They make you feel comfortable and most importantly, they listen to what you would like done with your hair, and what you don't want done! The end result, a great haircut  in a friendly environment..highly recommended! More...

I went to Exposed for a hair cut the other night, and it was definitely one of the best I have ever gotten! I have already received so many compliments, and I told them all I went to Exposed in Lombard. The owner Anna does a fantastic job, and she is just so down to earth. For a salon that provides such high-quality service and style, they have none of the attitude that usually accompanies those things, and their prices are very reasonable as well. Highly recommended!

Exposed is the first salon or hair place that has been good enough for me to make a commitment to. I have thick, curly hair, and I've never met a stylist who could handle it. Exposed can handle it. My stylist actually has my same hair...and she cuts it well. I usually just sit in the chair and give very minimal direction (with cuts or color), and she thinks about it, and then gives me something fabulous. The staff is great. I'm always offered coffee, water, or wine. They have tons of treats during the holidays, and a big party to celebrate the anniversary of the place opening (in May).They always have the products I want (JBeverly Hills), and my stylist is very specific and thoughtful about recommending new products for my style or cut.My out of town sister and out of state former roommates book appointments when they are in. I've also evangelized 3 co-workers into going. Love the place. Also, the eyebrows girl is very thorough. worth the money. More...

This place is fantastic ... I have never written a review for any place whatsoever, but this place deserves it!  Everyone is SO nice ... I had my hair cut and LOVED them.  Came back for a straightening treatment and was blown away by them!  Also had my brows done, and those look great! They know their stuff and the prices are reasonable!  They are incredibly nice too!  Can NOT beat it!  Go there ... really!  You won't regret it! More...
