Have been here a few times now. The Salon was recommended to me by a friend. I am so glad she did. They do a awesome job here...great service and friendly/talented people. Best place I have ever gone to 🙂

For my prom, I did the $85 makeup/updo package by Jenny. She was very sweet and did an AMAZING job! My hair looked exactly like the picture I wanted and stayed in tact the whole night. My makeup was amazing as well. A great experience for a great price!

Hands down THE BEST of the Best. This Salon has been in Somerville the longest, formerly Lili's - both owned by the same wonderful and talented family. I've been going to Jenny and Lili for almost 14 years and I wouldn't stray. I receive compliments on my hair practically everywhere I go, it's always healthy and I wouldn't be happier anywhere else. Amazing staff, trained and educated - always up to date with latest trends and best products on the market _ always! Membership plan options available, late nights to accommodate your schedule and open/honest feedback always. I travel 45 minutes to an hour each time I need to get my hair done and it's WELL worth it! I highly recommend and suggest Illustrated Beauty, Jenny and her staff!!!!!

The girls are attentive and take their time. IB offers memberships for those who have a solid routine. It's a great idea!

Best place in Somerville! I had my hair and make up done for my wedding by Jenny and she is the best caring, professional, friendly person I know! I do my hair with her for many years now! Thank you for doing an amazing job every time!
