Hi Janet!! [My] hair looks awesome. It is so easy to maintain. My hair looks like it was professionally groomed everyday. Every one at work loved the cut and asked me about you. You did such an amazing job of cutting it, I won't let anyone else touch my hair ever again. Thank you so much. I am smiling everyday!!!!! right quote

Janet is the person to go to. She really understands hair and explains why she does what she does. I will never go anywhere else. Besides she's fun and you can find other quirky stuff at her salon, like her handmade silver creations and wonderful candles. right quote

This review is a little overdue, but I must share what I wonderful experience I had with Janet back in February. I had purchased a Lifebooker certificate for highlights/cut, but decided I wanted to try something new, the ombre coloring style. Janet was kind enough to work with me to find an appropriate substitute for the value of the highlights. I must say how impressed I was with her attention to detail, consideration for my hair type and treatment to get me the best results I could have imagined. I simply showed her a photo of the Ombre coloring style I wanted and voila! She made it happen. I can't wait to make my next appointment with her! right quote

I've been letting my hair grow for over a year now, and I wanted to keep letting it grow but was struggling terribly with it!! So much so, I contemplated cutting it all off almost daily! I have been going to salons and having my hair done from a very young age and have had more hair cuts than most women! After seeing Janet, I can honestly say I have never had such a detailed haircut in my life! Everything she did had a purpose, and she really listened to why I was struggling with my hair! It has been a month since my hair cut with Janet, and my hair still looks fabulous. I've gotten so many compliments! I can't wait to go back and see her again! Janet is truly a miracle worker! :-) right quote

Janet has awesome shave cream and after shave treatments. :0) And she has the best personality ever! A couple of my female friends go to her, and she's made them look amazing. right quote

If you want to look good for work or for play, go see Janet. Her scissors will blaze across your brow. A little pricier than most basic men's cuts, but you'll look fabulous once she's done ! right quote

HIGHLY recommended. This salon is unique and you will leave looking great with a terrific cut or color. One look at owner/stylist Janet Torelli's fabulous curls and you know you are in expert hands. Anyone who can tame such temperamental locks can be trusted. She has an unerring eye for how the cut of your hair can showcase your eyes or cheekbones, or how just the right shade plays up your complexion. Her charming salon is light and airy but also refreshingly quiet - far from the bustle of most hair salons where you are passed from person to person, at Spitcurl you have Janet's personal attention. Give this one a try (you'll be back,)

I have followed Janet around Chicago for 20 years now - yes, she's that good! Spitcurl is everything the other reviewers said - it's more like Janet is the hostess and you are her guest for the next hour. I joke with Janet each and every time I'm there to see her about "what's the music theme today", as there's always a great mix playing. In fact I've even gone out to buy the music she's had playing after hearing something new! Aside from the great music there's always some wonderful scent from the candles and yes, even refreshments! What a nice way to get a haircut! Oh and don't forget to check out her custom sterling martini pics and serving pieces - stunning!! right quote

Owner and stylist Janet Torelli is a hair genius! She has cut my hair for ten years. I have curly, hard-to-cut hair, but she understands it and knows how to cut and style it. People often ask me who cuts my hair, she does such a good job.

The salon is stylish but low key, it's usually easy to park on Southport, and close to the El. As a bonus, it doesn't take hours to have your hair done. I'm usually in and out in 30 minutes. I really appreciate that.
