**[The stylist] ruined my hair; I walked in a blond, walked out a brunette.
I went back 2 days later, after giving my self a chance to get used to ht new colour, to let [them] know that I was decidedly unhappy (actually I devastated at the state of my hair). I expressed that I didn't know what I could have said differently to have communicated any clearer, "just do again what I have on my head now." [The stylist] replied with "What do you want me to do?" in a accusatory tone, like him not listening was somehow my fault. I wanted him to fix it, which he did BUT he charged me for to correction, to boot! Going to Tony Chaar Salon was a terrible, traumatic experience. I will never go back and neither should you.

I came here with a staff member for a media event where we got to try Schwarzkopf's Essensity line that delivers full colour or highlights with up to 90% natural ingredients. Great for sensitive skin or women who are pregnant or prefer not to have too many chemicals in their hair. The service was fantastic.
I got my roots done and a hair mask to deal with my dry winter hair and a cut. The colour turned out fantastic. Kasia was able to match my roots perfectly even though I've never been there for a colour before. I was here with Melanie and they did highlights for her that looked fantastic. Her blonde hair looked shiny. Tony calls it a "juicy blonde".
For my cut, Tony added more layers and gave it a thorough trim. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out as there is a lot of movement to it. It's different than what I've had in the past but I have been receiving compliments on it already!
Tony and his staff are really friendly. There is no pretense in this salon despite being in an area somewhat known for that.
Prices are quite reasonable as well. Single colour starts at $70, Highlights at $130 and cut at $70 . I do have a strong relationship with another salon, but I'd certainly go back to Tony Chaar and recommend it to others.
I visited the Tony Chaar salon as part of Beautylicious 2010. I went all out for the highest offering-a colour consultation and haircut by Tony Chaar himself.
I loved it! The salon is in Yorkville, so I was a little worried about 'snooty staff' but I received a warm welcome/reception from Joelle (who is also a makeup artist at the salon). We talked a bit about the salon before I was called to Tony's chair. He gave me a quick colour consult and recommended a treatment for my hair and told me what he was planning on doing as far as the cut. I went back and had an awesome protein treatment (leave in for 10 minutes sort of thing), and then the haircut.
Tony is very attentive and truly professional. He is an expert at what he does. He knows how to engage a client in conversation and isn't tacky or obnoxious. My haircut was so wonderful-absolutely perfect for the shape of my face! He even did the blow dry where all the round brushes stay in your hair....my hair was so voluminous and shiny!
I am going back for colour in 2 weeks or so-I do recommend this salon! I didn't get pushed/prodded into anything I wasn't comfortable with, staff is wonderful and Tony is worth every penny!
