Salon MVPs: Which Stylist Does Your 'Do the Best?

Nominate your hair stylist as a Patch Salon MVP, and he or she might be profiled.

People are particular when it comes to choosing a doctor. They do their research to find someone who knows what he or she is doing, is covered under their insurance and has a good bedside manner.

But that's nothing compared to what some people will do to find a good hair stylist that they trust. Sure, a doctor takes care of your health, but your stylist does something more important: He or she makes your hair look good.

At Patch, we want to spotlight those stylists who know how to do up a 'do and make their customers happy. That's why we want you to nominate your stylist for our Salon MVP. Tell us why you're loyal to him or her and what keeps you coming back in our comments section.

While you're at it, give a shout out to the salon your favorite stylist works at in our Patch Places business directory. Think of your recommendation as a public service, telling residents the best places in Frankfort to go.

Bella Rae has closed. In its place is Salon Malizia -- Julie Malizia is awesome. She has made much needed improvements to the salon. More important, she knows her stuff. Her application of color and her ability to give a good cut is much appreciated. And her prices are more than fair.

Amici Spa & Salon is a great place to be pampered. They offer services for hair, nails, facials, massages, waxing and all day spa packages. They have been in business for over 8 years. Most of the women who work there have 20+ years experience. They truly treat you like family when you go there. Stop by and take a look, you won't be disappointed!

Beverly Evers Catalano is the best at Jeffrey Lamorte. She has been doing my families hair over 12 years. Bev goes out of her way to fit you into her busy schedule if your schedule changes. Her friendly attitude, outstanding service and attention to detail will always keep us coming back to Jeffrey Lamorte.

Beverly at Jeffrey Lamorte salon has been my beauty saviour for 12 years! Most importantly Beverly's compassion makes her an outstanding stylist. Her patience and understanding when cutting my disabled daughters hair makes a world of difference!

Sheli Dodaro at Jeffrey LaMorte in Orland Park is the BEST!!! :D
Breanne Behnke February 19, 2012 at 08:43 PM
Beverly at LaMorte Frankfort is by far THE best stylist out there. She took me from blonde to brunette and all the colors in between (even purple!) and made me look and feel amazing. My husband is even a client and loves the work she does for him too! She always gives the best advice as far as styles and cuts. I am a life long Bev client!

Beverly Catalano at Jeffrey Lamorte in Frankfort is the best. I've been to many places and when I found her, I wouldn't even consider anyone else. There have been many times I've been asked who does my hair. The bonus is that she's really fun to be around!!! Thanks Bev!

Karen Drozd is the best stylist I have ever had for anything, a cut, color and styling for special ocassions. She has been my stylist for over 15 years and is always on the cutting edge of style. She takes all the current looks and applies them to me for a truly personal style. It's like magic She is at Jeffery Lamorte in Frankfort. Thanks Karen!!!
