ALL of our HONEST YELP Reviews - All 60+

We're an exceptional local salon and spa that's celebrated by our guests. Yelp's business practices repress over 53 of our honest guest reviews. We want to celebrate our guests by letting their voices be heard and shared. Yelp states that they use an automated process to filter out reviews and that it has nothing to do with having to pay for advertising on Yelp. We experimented with that theory. We dropped our advertising and watched the number of displayed reviews drop. There was a direct correlation. We recommend that users lean towards google and facebook reviews.

Laura is a rockstar stylist! I've been trying to find a stylist for a while now and I have definitely found a keeper.  I had a bunch of hair that needed to be cut off and she listened carefully looked at my pictures and gave me the hair cut I asked for. 
The inside is super clean, organized, and beautifully decorated. We didn't know each other before this, but you couldn't tell that by her friendly and sweet chair manor. 
I'm happy to have found this hidden gem in the middle of Mill Creek and will be returning for sure!

I loveeee this salon! I've gone to Bekah over the last few years and she does an amazing job on my cut and color. She listens to exactly what I want and I am always more than happy with the end result! I've also got spray tanned by her. I use to be afraid to get spray tanned because naturally I am so pale and I was afraid the spray tan would look unnatural but that was not the case at all. The quality of their spray tan product is amazing and Ellenbe is now my go to place for special occasion spray tans as well! Highly recommend!

The salon is beautiful!  It's very well decorated and makes you feel like being treated. Laura has been doing my hair for over a year and I love it every time. She does a great job of listening to what I'm looking for, plus laying in her opinion when asked to help make decisions. My color always looks great from highlights to lowlights, and the cuts are some of the best I've ever had.   While she's been able to help me keep a cute style from short to medium length hair, it was always grows out nicely.  Highly recommend her and Salon Ellenbe!

 just had my hair cut... and it's the best men's cut I've ever had... I loved the atmosphere and was treated well. I'll be back next month.


Andrea A. Phoenix, AZ 28 friends / 10 reviews ✩✩✩✩✩
Bekah is a rock star when it comes to hair and bringing the best out in her clients.  She has done my hair for about 4 years now.  I even fly back from AZ to have her do it as much as I can.  She is FAB!


Dana T. Geneva, IL 1 friend / 7 reviews ✩✩✩✩✩
I've been going to Bekah for almost a year, and every hair cutting experience with her is always a good one! My mom just went to her for the first time and was really happy with her haircut. Laura and Bekah are both super nice and run a really cute salon. I encourage everyone, men, women, all ages, to go and try them out!


Vicky T. Downers Grove, IL 16 friends / 5 reviews ✩✩✩✩✩
I used to go to Mario 2 in Yorktown.  I had to wait weeks to get an appointment that fit my schedule.  Bekah always finds a way to get me in.  Not only that, she does an awesome job every time.  Give her a try!  You will not be disapointed!


Jes R. Elburn, IL 4 reviews ✩✩✩✩✩
I've been getting my hair done by Laura for a couple years now and she always does a great job! That is a huge compliment since I am always changing not only my cut but my color.  Any idea I throw at her she turns into a great style, whether it's straight bangs with long hair, a platinum blonde faux hawk, or my current super short fuchsia. She's fantastic!


Jennifer G. Algonquin, IL 1 friend / 3 reviews ✩✩✩✩✩
If you are looking for a hairdresser...Laura is the best! She is a truly talented stylist who cares about making her clients happy. I have recommended her to friends and family and have always been in love with my hair after leaving her chair!

Rachel O. Minneapolis, MN 30 friends/2 reviews ✩✩✩✩✩

"This Salon is a gem of a find. While in town for Thanksgiving I wanted to find a place to get my hair done since I had free Child care at grandma's! So happy with the service! It was such a great experience- I will definitely plan to visit this salon next time I am in town."


Rachel H. DeKalb, IL 2 reviews✩✩✩✩✩
I have been seeing Bekah for a little over a year now. She is wonderful! She is patient and doesn't rush her way through the appointment. She spends the time getting your color, cut, style exactly how you want it. I've had my hair cut, styles, highlighted and also have had her put in Dreamcatchers hair extensions as well. I'm always pleased with her work. She is professional, friendly and affordable.  I look forward to my 8 week appointments with her for sure!


Ron P. Geneva, IL  2 reviews ✩✩✩✩✩
We had moved into the area and had to find new everything...came across this salon in neighborhood and took the kids to give it a try, guinea pigs.  Elaine did a great job and really interacted well with them so I decided to go to her, best cut/style that I have ever had.  It took some convincing to get my wife to finally give Elaine a know, women and their relationships with their stylist but she has fallen in-love with the work Elaine does, can't believe she took so long to start going to her.  If you are looking for a stylist that is friendly and talented, go see Elaine!!


Joel F. Sycamore, IL 2 reviews ✩✩✩✩✩
Bekah has been cutting my hair for 2 years now.  She does a great job and is fun to visit with.  She takes great pride in her work and will go above and beyond to make sure you look great.

Thanks girls for always making me look and feel pretty, Paul Mitchell has amazing products thank you! Can't wait for skincare... it's Facial TIME! :)


Karen R. Elburn, IL  1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Laura has been cutting my hair for over 11 years! Her salon is beautifully decorated and makes you feel relaxed. It is hard for me to decide what to do with my hair. She is very good at helping me decide what to do with my thick head of hair!


Alex C. Streamwood, IL  1 review ✩✩✩✩✩

ad a bit of a color oops recently when the color I wanted didn't turn out at all like my regular stylist & I had hoped. Elaine did a great job recoloring it for me while Bekah was out of town, & best of all they fixed the it for free.

Ralph P. Dekalb, IL  1 review ✩✩✩✩✩

I found a rare gem. I was looking for both scalp care and massage but I found them both at this salon. Bekah (hair) and Jen (massage) were both great at what they do. I'll be back! Highly recommended!


Quinn E. St. Charles, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Laura has been doing my hair every month for almost 10 years. Not only does she do an excellent job and accommodates my ever changing style and color, she also provides a great experience and input and has become such a great friend! I look forward to every month's appointment! I also love all of the products they offer and have become very loyal to the Paul Mitchell brand. Everyone at Ellenbe is fantastic and really produce top notch results! There isn't anything they can't do!

Bekah has been cutting my hair for years and I would follow her to any salon! Salon EllenBe is her new salon and it is great!


Mary L. Plano, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Salon EllenBe is comfortable, professional and most importantly has talented stylists! Bekah has been my stylist for 4 years, she has always done an amazing job with my color and cut.  She has also become one of my best friends:)  She is awesome when it comes to consultation with me before we make any changes with color or style. I am a singer and she does fabulous up-do's for my concerts!  I was also lucky to have her style my hair for my wedding  day!  I would reccomend Salon EllenBe and Bekah to anyone!

Candi B. St Charles, IL 3 friends /  1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Salon EllenBe is where to be!!  I've had the privilege of knowing Laura for a few years and she has become not only a very close friend of mine but my hairdresser as well!!  I had been going to the same lady for 10 years and after having to miss an appointment that I had difficulty rescheduling I decided to try Laura...1 appointment turned into an every 7 week re-occurring appointment (color & cut) for the past year and a half. Laura is extremely down to earth and balances listening to her client's "wants/needs" while also lending her years of expertise and knowledge to us "hair novices.”


Erika C. St Charles, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Salon ellenbe is the place to be! Laura & Bekah are 2 hip young stylist with years of experience. I have been a client of bekah's for 3 1/2 years now and just love her! All 5 of my children also get their hair cut by Bekah and they all enjoy going to her, even my 1 year old! I wouldn't go anywhere else or trust anyone else!!!


Ashley M. Batavia, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
I've known both Laura and Bekah for awhile now and they are both awesome people! Bekah has been doing my hair now for about 4 years. I go to Bekah regularly for cuts and color, but I've also gone to her for updos and she's always been awesome. I always enjoy having my hair done by Bekah. She's so much fun to be around and she always does a great job!


Aelis Q. Sycamore, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Mrs. Bekah Tate is a wonderful hair stylist. She has done a few different styles for me, all of witch i love. I cant imagine what a catastrophe my hair would be without her! Thank You to Bekah for taming my hair and making it look outstanding!


Eric R. Elburn, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Bekah is phenomenal,  she fixes cheap hair cuts, always makes time to get me in and very enjoyable to converse with. She is well educated and-lets you know a lot about your hair and hair in general ...give her a try, you will not regret it !!!!


scott m. Lockport, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Hands down the best!! Bekah is amazing. Extremely talented, professional and her attention to detail makes for great style. There is never any doubt that Bekah will do great work. I look forward to going to Salon Ellenbe and will continue to be a client for a long time.

Bekah has been doing our family's hair for 4 years and we are so proud of her and the new business!! Her professionalism and high quality service is impeccable and I promise that if you go once you will be a returning customer. I highly recommend Salon Ellenbe to anyone who is looking for great service and an awesome experience!!


Candice T. Downers Grove, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Bekah did my hair last Saturday and it looks absolutely amazing. She truly is a hairdresser who listens to what YOU want. Not what THEY want. I walked out of there with a perfect sunkissed look.. she spent extra time in matching my hair color to these bang extentions I got.. and it all truly looks amazing. A+++ work!!


Charlie D. Elburn, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
I have been getting my hair cut by Laura for years and am so excited for her to have her own salon.  She is professional and courteous while also fun to talk to and I always walk out knowing that I got exactly what I wanted.  I will continue to get my hair cut by her as long as she is willing to cut it.  So excited for Salon Ellenbe!


Christi B. Elburn, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Laura has been doing my hair for about four years. I tried a couple other stylists before her and I felt like I was just getting a trim. She gives me a great look with cut, color and waxing.I'm very choosy and I won't go to anyone else! I have tried a few lengths and looks and she's great at cutting hair that's growing out or a look from a magazine. Even when I say "I want this but......[enter difference here]" she just knows what to do. I get compliments on my hair no matter what length and style.


Jerri, Sycamore, IL 2 friends / 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
What a relaxed and yet fun experience at Salon Ellenbe
Laura and Bekah are both very welcoming and so are the team from
Dynamic Tan.  Bekah has a real understanding of the Paul Mitchell Products and does a great job with making you feel special and yet cared for.  The two girls coming together makes for such a strong team. 


Katie R. Batavia, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
I enjoy getting my hair cut by Bekah! She is such an awesome woman who does a fantastic job cutting my hair! She is very personable and I love talking with her!

Amanda G. Carol Stream, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Bekah has been doing my hair for about a year now & I absolutely love it. I have never considered going to anyone else but her. I trust her with my hair & every time I get it cut & colored, I love it. I will never go to anyone else. Also, when I get my hair done, its not awkward. I have a hard time when I'm getting my hair done & its so awkward because its silent the whole time. But with Bekah, its never quiet & I love talking to her! I can't wait until my next appointment!


Laura P. Geneva, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
If you would like to come see me (Laura) I can be reached at - (630) 283-2121. My number is not listed on the top of the page. I have 8 years of experience behind the chair. I would love the opportunity to get to know you and help you get the perfect style. Thank you so much for everyone who has left me such wonderful reviews! You guys are the reason I LOVE what I do.


KateF. Chicago, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Bekah started doing my hair 2 years ago and has always been able to give me exactly the color and cut I want for whatever mood I'm in.  At this point, she knows my preferences so well that she can basically read my mind and I always leave looking perfect!  I moved to the city last year and i still drive out to the suburbs and will continue to do so.  I get compliments on my hair color and style at least once a week.  You can be assured that you will leave the salon feeling like the most beautiful version of yourself!


Mary P. Batavia, IL 1 review ✩✩✩✩✩
Without question, the best cut & color in the Fox Valley!  Bekah is amazing!  Very talented, friendly and well priced.  Love, love, love how Bekah makes my hair look. They do wonderful updo's, too.
