Poll: Which Hair Salon is Best?

Lake Zurich and Barrington Patch readers nominated salons for this week's Readers Choice.

We asked Barrington and Lake Zurich Patch readers to nominate their favorite hair salon for this week's Readers Choice and we received loads of nominations. 

The salons with the most nominations made it into our poll. They are:

Now it's time to vote in our poll and/or review the salon in the Patch listing, which you can access by clicking the name of the salon above. 

Please note a change (outlined in the PDF at right) to way winners will be named. A point system will be used to score the contenders, which will be judged based on votes as well as on ratings in our business directory, Patch Places. In the event of a tie, the salon with the most positive comments on its listing and on this story will be declared the champion. 

Votes (one per person, per day, please), ratings and reviews left before 5 p.m. Friday will be counted toward this week's totals. We'll announce the champion on Saturday morning.

So cast your vote - which salon deserves to be named the best in the area?

Couture 360 is fantastic!!!! Not only are they cutting edge but they conduct themselves with poise, class and vision. It's truly a winning Combination. You feel so welcome and special from start to finish. Thank you for making my hair long and beautiful. After Christina and Victor added their magic of color, extensions and style, my husband loves my hair and I have received so many complements. I never received complents like this before. So, a huge thank you to Rose and your amazing team. Xoxo Maria

Anybody who knows me will tell you that I'm EXTREMELY picky. So when I say that Couture 360 is the vision of what everyone wants from their salon, I don't say that lightly. The best customer service I've ever received at any salon (or any type of business for that matter). You truly feel pampered, like someone is inviting you into their home and treating you like family. I don't know how Rose does it, but I can't think of a single thing that I would ask her or her staff to do differently. Truly one of a kind! You have to experience it to really get why Couture 360 is unmatched.

Couture 360 is First Class in all aspects. The staff is amazing but then again, they have an amazing role model for a Lady Boss!

Coccole is like HOME to me! The mom and pop salon I've always wanted to go to! "Where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came!!"

Salon Coccole! Every service I have had there has been fabulous, which is why I keep going back. Even when I moved out of town, I would still schedule hair appts around when I would be back in town. Now that I'm back full time, so glad to have such a great salon and spa close by!
josie blue May 25, 2012 at 08:58 AM
Pleased to say Salon Coccole is my salon! They have gone above and beyond to accommodate a need I had recently and I can't say how much I appreciated that. I am grateful for the respect and consideration that they have shown me as a long time client.

Couture 360!!!
G May 25, 2012 at 12:46 PM
Hands down Couture360. Been to both salons so I can honestly tell you who the winner is. Not just for the talent and skill of my stylist but also for the treatement of guests.

Salon Coccole
Rose May 25, 2012 at 01:32 PM
Salon Coccole! Professional and commited to the customer experience. Love the entire staff :)
SC May 25, 2012 at 01:59 PM
Dear Patch and LZ, Maybe you knew this-or maybe you didn't but obviously 360 and coccole have a history and that's in the past. Both are great salons with a loyal fan base. Just like some prefer Pepsi and others Coca-Cola-or McDonalds to Burger King or Caribou Coffee to Starbucks. Competition is healthy and it's what makes our country (and town) great!! So how about this-if you love one over the other-just VOTE for that one and save the nasty comments. If you are on Team Coccole you won't be joining Team 360 and you can't change the other side's mind. If you are on Team 360 you won't be joining Team Coccole and you can't change the other side's mind. Be nice people!
Becky May 25, 2012 at 02:24 PM
Salon Coccole - all my worries go away when I walk in the door; I've tried other salon's and none compare to the professional treatment that the staff at Salon Coccole delivers.
Joanie May 25, 2012 at 02:28 PM
Salon Coccole Rocks!!
Claudia Lenart (Editor) May 25, 2012 at 02:40 PM
Again, please keep the comments positive about why you like your salon. Negative comments will be deleted.
Claudia Lenart (Editor) May 25, 2012 at 02:51 PM
Salon Coccole has asked to be removed from the poll in a statement: "Due to the volume of loyal clients Salon Coccole serves we are unable to put time and energy into this contest as we prefer to focus on our business which is what we do best. We are grateful for all the support that we received."

Fleur De Lis Salon will make you feel like you are among family and friends. All of them make certain that you feel right at home. I can always depend on getting excellent, quality treatments whether it be trying out a new color or a new shade of nail polish. The whole staff take their profession very serious and will not try to offer you a service you don't need, only what is best for you and you only. I can't say enough good things about Fleur De Lis Salon
Gonzoid May 25, 2012 at 03:56 PM
"When Salons Rumble" ... coming to a theater near you this summer!!!!! These comments are hilarious!!! Each one reads like the old Miller Lite "Less filling!", "Tastes Great!" ads. It's a haircut, folks... not a turf war.
Rosie May 25, 2012 at 04:16 PM
I'm sure that every salon represented here is excellent in their own way. As a client, the quality of service you receive has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with a salon. Every person is different and has different hopes and expectations. I encourage others to NOT focus on any specific salon and search the Stylist which is best suited to YOU. Explore each professional and find the one that makes YOU look and feel fabulous!
