One of my childhood best friend's mom owns the local Elburn hair salon, Hair Directors. Sue Filek, the owner, is amazing at doing hair and my mom and I both have been getting our hair done by her for the past 12 years. Whether it is a cut, color, or up-do for a special event, Sue is always our go to person! There are a few other ladies that work there with her as well, and they're all amazing. Hair Directors is a nice, clean place, and they are always very inviting. You will enjoy your time spent there getting your hair done, and never want to consider going to any other hair salon after going there!
Review Blackberry Township
My address technically says I live in Elburn, but Geneva is where I grew up and went to school. Randall Road is filled with big name shopping stores and food places, and downtown Geneva has only 2 chains, the rest are small business and restaurants. Popular stores and restaurants in downtown include The Little Traveler, Grahams, All Chocolate Kitchen, The Grotto, Bien Trucha, and Cocoon. Randall road has famous chain restaurants like Panera, Chipotle, Starbucks, Boston Market, and especially Portillos. Also almost any popular fast food places like McDonalds and Wendy's. The Geneva Commons has the most popular chain restaurants and shopping. Places like California Pizza kitchen, Buffalo Wild Wings, Crate and Barrel, Forever 21, American Eagle, Ann Taylor, New York and Company, and many other popular stores.
Geneva is very well known for its restaurants and chocolatiers. All Chocolate Kitchen, a very popular chocolatier, was even featured on the Food Network. There is also another delicious chocolatier/ ice cream parlor across the street. Most of the shops in the downtown area are small, and locally owned. There are very few big name companies downtown with the exception of Starbucks, and a few others. The big companies are all located along main roads and other such areas, and most well known names are accounted for in the city.
