Absolutely thrilled with the wonderful experience we had with the hair and makeup artist! My 9-year-old nieces thick frizzy hair had always been a struggle, but Linda did a keratin treatment, it's like a magical transformation. Linda's expertise and care were evident throughout the process, and she made my niece feel comfortable and excited about the change. Not only did they skillfully manage her hair, but she also boosted her confidence and happiness. It's been a joy to see her radiate with newfound confidence. A huge thanks for making my nieces day and giving her the gift of manageable, beautiful hair! Five stars without a doubt.

One of the best decisions I made for my wedding was to ask for Linda’s help. She did my cut, color, makeup, and style. She suggested everything, including the style, and it was all perfect for me. I couldn’t give higher praise for all her help!! A+++++++++

I am SO happy every time I leave after an appointment because Linda is quick and efficient. But what’s best is my haircut and styling look SO GOOD. In the days after my appointment, I received so many compliments on my haircut. I also enjoy going to a salon where I am the only customer. I feel so pampered. Linda is the BEST!!

I have had the extreme pleasure of having Linda Russo, owner of Hair And Makeup Guru, in Park Ridge, as my ONLY hair stylist since 1983. She has ALWAYS made me look good after styling my hair. It is always nice to talk to her while she works, and I feel like I have a friend in her. I would NEVER switch to another stylist. Linda is a credit to her profession. My wife has also used Linda's hairstyling services, and she was also very pleased with her results. -Ed Davis. Friday, May 13, 2022 / 7:47 pm.

Hair Consultation
Linda is TERRIFIC. In just a few minutes of a hair consult, she evaluated my hair and recommended a simple but classy way of arranging it for a special occasion. It was better than I thought my hair could ever look again. She taught me how to do it. I recommend Linda.

The Buckingham, Airbrush Makeup Application, Eye Lashes
Had my hair blown out and makeup down by Linda Russo recently. I couldn’t believe how quickly she did it. She is a seasoned pro. My appointment was at 3 pm. I came a few minutes early but was done by 3:30 pm. She airbrushed my foundation. My first experience with airbrushing. It was so quick and looked so natural. She also put on false eyelashes, another first for me. The ones she did compliment my lashes without being over the top. I am not a normal makeup wearer, but for special occasions, I will definitely use Linda again. I was very pleased. My makeup looked natural and not overly done.

Wonderful experience with Linda today. My appointment started on time, and she listened to what I wanted after I showed her my pictures. She noticed a few weird things my hair does and knew how to handle it. The final product was exactly what I wanted. I will definitely go back!!

So happy to be able to safely get my haircut with Linda. Having known Linda for over 20 years, I had no doubt she would comply with all the measures put in place due to Covid-19. She met me at the door, where we were both masked. She took my temperature and had me answer a questionnaire. Everything was done by the books, which helped me feel safe and confident in her taking Covid-19 seriously. Linda's studio, no matter where she was located, has always been clean, which is one of the reasons I’ve been seeing her for over 20 years. Thank You, Linda,
