About Scissors Edge Salon and Reviews

Best Salon in Town

In 1978, fresh out of school, the Brusso sisters, Shelly and Andrea, were given the opportunity to purchase a small, three chair salon called Scissors Edge. Their mother, Arden, second mortgaged her home and lent her daughters the money needed to purchase the salon. Today, nearly forty years later, Scissors Edge, located in the Laundry mall, is a thriving, eleven-chair salon that is an integral part of the Winnetka community, serving three generations of clients. We invite you to become part of the Scissors Edge family.

I made an appointment at Scissors Edge Salon after having a botched balayage done somewhere else. The color was all wrong and it fried my hair. Dyana talked to me about my options to fix my hair and was honest about what could be done and what couldn't be done yet. She brought my hair back to life and it looks better than ever! I highly recommend Scissors Edge, of course because of my experience with Dyana, but also because of their professional and friendly staff, and reasonable prices.

I have been a huge fan of Dyana's for almost 10 years and love that she's at Scissors Edge. She always gives the best cuts, super precise, and clean from my bob to creating movement with length. Her color is also second to none. She is always up on the latest trends and long lasting color. Her updos and styling are second to none as well. If you're looking for a new stylist she's amazing!

Diana is an absolute wizard!! She was able to step in and transform my super damaged hair (caused by another salon)!! She added tape in hair extensions and I've never been happier with my hair ever. It looks and feels so natural. The whole salon makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. I will definitely be a customer for life!! Thanks again Diana!

Scissor's edge is my go-to for cut and color. Melina is literally amazing. She always knows exactly what I want AND what's best for my hair. She has come to know my hair super well so she always knows what to suggest when I'm feeling adventurous. Melina takes her time and makes sure you are totally satisfied with your hair before you leave. Oh, and they have the BEST products on sale too! You'll never be dissatisfied with scissors edge.

It took me a while to find the perfect sylist after moving to Chicago 3 years ago. I finally found Dyana. She is amazing!!! Dyana is an excellent choice if you are looking for a beautiful blonde, or any gorgeous color for that matter. Not only is she kind considerate but she will make sure you get exactly what you are looking for!

The worst and most unprofessional not polite front person. Two weeks ago I happened to be in Winnetka and needed a haircut. I got an appointment fairly fast. My haircut was fine but does not justify the price compared to what I get elsewhere. Worst of all the front person. She barely looks at you and wanted to charge you . My hair stylist told her "no the haircut is " but she anyways charged my card without giving a s***. Worst of all she wrote in her log book and in front of my eyes. Careless.Stay away don't go there... Unless you want to be treated like this!Boja!

I went to Scissors Edge for a cut and a blowout with Gina, who did an excellent job and was very friendly and great at conversation. The salon gives you a warm welcome and provides  a great experience. The staff is friendly and all smiles, and the overall quality of the salon is top notch with clean stations and good sanitization. Definitely recommend and would come back here.


Steven M.

Went here for a quick haircut a while back and haven't gone anywhere else since. The staff is very friendly and does an excellent job in making sure you get what you want. Would highly recommend.


Haley W.

Karol is the absolute best! I came in with dead hair expecting to have to cut it all off and she completely saved it. She's an expert at Keratin treatments, and does overall wonders to my hair. Never going to anyone else but her!


Allen C.

Great staff and always easy to schedule an appointment. I went to a few salons before calling this one home due to cut and coloring professionalism. If you're looking for a change and family friendly environment then I highly recommend Scissors Edgar and to see Ina by appointment.


Jaclyn V.

I've been going into Scissors Edge since I moved in the area a few years ago. I'm a last minute person so I go to whoever is available when I call. When I last came in, I decided to go with a balayage with Dyanna and a cut with Shelly. I have been getting compliments wherever I go. My husband and kid goes there as well. This is the greatest place on the North Shore. You rock!


Marla M.

I absolutely love this place!! Its so warm and welcoming that you feel right at home. I have been going to Shelly for years and won't go anywhere else. I always get so many compliments on my hair and she is the best to chat with. I love that she always remembers everything about me even if I haven't seen her in a few months. She's amazing and I highly recommend her.


Allison B.

I cant say enough great things about Scissors Edge. Ina, Shelly and the front desk staff were wonderful to work with as I planned my appointments around my wedding and my schedule changed. I have been getting my hair cut here for a few years, and always walk away happy. Ina was able to fit me for clip in extensions and took the time to teach me until I felt comfortable doing it on my own.  I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a salon to call home!


Amy G.

Gloria did a fantastic job on braiding my daughter's hair for a special event. She did it very quickly! Awesome job!


Joanna F.

Best place for a color, cut, style or getting your eyebrows threaded and hennaed. Been coming here for a long time. I appreciate that they listen and that they always give wonderful suggestions.


Colleen B.

Jennifer is the best! She is an expert colorist and super friendly! If you are looking for a new stylist, you should absolutely book with her!


Sunita S.

Dyana is The Best , lovingmy hairThank you for making my birthday special Shelly , you are the most amazing person I ever met ! Your team is incredible and very talented people Thank you all for making my Birthday Special


Ellen H.

Do not, I repeat, do not go to Rita. She butchered both my sons' hair. On one, she cut his sideburns completely off, when clearly that was not the look he was going for. Overpriced and generally low quality haircuts. I do not recommend it.


Nora O.

I love Scissors Edge. Donna has been doing my hair for years and I always leave with the perfect cut and color! I commute all the way from downtown every time I need my hair done because I couldn't imagine anyone else doing it. Excellent salon and great people!


Karina C.

We were looking for a neat haircut for my son, and described that we were looking for a standard shorter sides, longer bangs style. The stylist did not even care to make his hair look natural, and left it with an odd style. When we left, it did not look as bad with all the hair product, but as soon as he washed his hair his haircut looked like a bob from the '70s. For the price of over , we had to go to a different salon the next day to fix it. Do not recommend for boy haircuts.
