talented and friendly – My hair stylist in the east village moved back to Chicago and I needed to find a new place. A friend who lives in Hells Kitchen gave me a referral card for Timothy Johns Salon. I went in for a highlight and trim. My Stylist was Emily. I was very pleased with her work and will continue to go back. Great Salon.
I love this place! – This salon is perfect! I love the stylists and the receptionist is adorable. I had a cut and blow and it is fabulous! Everyone keeps complimenting me and I just wanted to share with everyone that this is the kind of place that you keep going back to.
I adored the service! Everyone was friendly and and I wasn't even there for too long. The salon is fairly priced and it is very enjoyable.
It is located in a wondeful area, the heart of Hell's Kitchen! You can go get your hair done and go out with your friends afterwards.
I strongly recommend Timothy John's Salon to everyone who loves a wonderful haircut and lovely service.
AMAZING! – I get my hair done A LOT! My father is a haistylist and I've only ever had him do my hair. As a recent transplant to NYC, I didn't know who or where to go to. I'd been doing my hair by myself for a while and it looked okay, but when I came across Timothy John's one day, I was imidiately comfortable with all of the stylists and the Atmosphere.
They're extremely professional and friendly beyond belief and it just feels so wonderful to be able to find a place where the people actually treat you like you belong.
Basically my hair looks amazing.
My hair is naturally really, really dark; so dark that people think I dye it black. They made me a platinum blonde and gave me a beautiful super cropped pixie look and I adore it! I can never get enough compliments on it! I'm so grateful to have found Timothy and everyone else that works here. They all helped to achieve the look I wanted and they most diefinitely succeeded!
Timothy John's Salon is...."Pretty Cool"! – I have been a loyal Timothy John's Salon client for about 2 years and I have to say....Its pretty cool! I have my color done every 6 weeks and usually have my hair cut every other time. I am one of those women who have a lot....and I mean a LOT of grey. I also like to have highlights as well. I used to go to a salon that would have me do highlights every time. At Timothy John's they put me on a healthier regimen that included highlights every third visit. My hair is a lot healthier, and my wallet is thrilled too! You dont get honesty like that in NYC...and thats also....pretty cool! I have seen several stylists, and they all are amazing. It is a warm inviting space on 53rd Street that is super convenient to the subway. I take the E to 50th. I feel like I am getting quality services at prices that are fair. (I have paid a lot more for a lot less!) Anyway.... I just wanted to give a big shout out to my peeps at TJ's. I love the salon, I love the people and I think they are all...."pretty cool!"
Friendliest salon in Manhattan – I came to this salon for my first time on Saturday after trying dozens of stuck up expensive salons in the city. I FINALLY found this place! I had highlights and a haircut by Rosemary,and everything came out AMAZING!! Im so happy, everybody at this salon was so friendly. I will definetly be back
After the last review, what a breath of fresh air! I'm happy you were happy. Rosemary is a dream come true for me. She is talented beyond belief! We have the best team ever at the salon right now. I am so proud of Rosemary's work, she always gives 110%. Enjoy your highlights and thanks for being such a positive client. We need more clients like you! Tell your friends! Take Care, TJ
Worst Experience Ever!! – I just left Timothy Johns and had the WORST EXPERIENCE EVER in my life!! First of all, the person who booked my appointment told me it was for 12:30pm, but when I listened to my message confirming the appt time...they said 12:15pm. I simply called the salon to let them know there was an error and it was supposed to be at 12:30pm, and the receptionist was extremely rude. Instead of apologizing for the mixup, she kept saying well it's in the computer as 12:15pm, so they are right and I am wrong. After getting tired of battling this with her, I told her I would do the best i could to be there at 12:15pm (their error), and she still did not apologize and said if I was late they might not be able to see me bc this was causing a problem. This all before i even walked into the place. So i finally arrive after rushing to get there. I was greeted to my stylist (Emily or whatever her name is), and she had a total attitude from the get go. I was told on the phone when making my appt that I would get a consult before the color and that Timothy would be standing there to give his advice. Of course that did not happen. When i tried to explain the color I wanted and even brought in magazines to show the color/type of highlights I wanted...Emily seemed very annoyed and I could tell she didnt want to see any pictures or listen, she was just trying to rush through. So she was starting to apply color on my hair, I pulled out a sandwich and had it on my lap and even mentioned i was getting ready to eat while she started. I was suprised that she then took the crate of foil and abruptly placed it on my lap and said "hand these to my as I foil". I was really taken aback that at a 5 star salon they actually ask all their clients to hold the foil on their laps and expect you to hand them each foil as they go along. We are the clients and we are paying for a service, it makes it very hard to sit there and eat/relax/read if you are expected to be handing your stylist foil every other 30 seconds. My stylist continued to be annoyed with me an when I was done eating, abruptly put them back on my lap. She was very rough with me and I could tell aggitated the whole time. When it was time for my blowdry, I asked to use the bathroom and again she huffed and seemed so annoyed. During the blowdry I could see that the hairs around my bangs were very dark and i specifically asked for them to be "lighter" around my face. I asked her if she could touch them up and she got very upset, said "she did what I asked and I was wrong". She said she wouldnt redo them but I kept insisting bc I was unhappy, so that is when Timothy stepped in. Wow, talk about a rude/nasty/unprofessional owner. He started yelling at me that she was right and did what I asked, and how dare I tell ehr I was unahhpy and that I was "telling her how to do his job". then he started saying I was throwing gum wrappers all over the floor?? It was just pure ridiculousness at this point. All the customers were staring as he was yelling, embrassing himself. Gumwrappers?? I had NOO idea what he was even talking about?!?! then he yelled at me to go 'sit over there"..and was being verbally abusive. He said my hair was more like a "color correction" than highlights. He was the rudest man I have ever dealt with in my life, and this was the owner?? There is NO winning at this salon. Their customer service is HORRIBLE, and if yoyu dare say that you are unhappy...you are yelled at in front of customers and ridiclued. I have never experienced anything like it in all my life! DO NOT GO HERE!!!! I could not WAIT to get out of there. I did not leave a tip and I intend to stop payment on my services. My hair color looks awful, and they are the RUDEST and most unprofessional staff I haveever worked with in all my life. WORST EVER!!
Crazy came to visit! She received a call 48hrs b4. She called on Sat morn refusing to come at 12:15. She walked in saying "Lets get this over with!" Emily is a true professional. She only allowed Emily to do Highlights, no Lowlights. She had time to buy a sandwich b4 her appt. and began devouring it, moving her head w/ every bite causing Emily to stop foiling. She was asked to hand foils because its faster, she refused. She commanded Emily not to color certain areas because of breakage from prev. color. Emily told her it would not be light at the hairline, she didnt care. She was chewing gum like mad, wrappers were all over. She fought Emily every step of the way. With what we had to work with, and what she allowed us to do, we did our best. Dont get mad when Emily gave you what you demanded. You must trust the process. As far as her saying "dont go there!" TRU DAT! Dont come if your crazy, rude, inconsiderate, bossy, and evil. Because we dont do that here. TJ
what a fab find! – I travel through NYC having moved to Europe and usually rely on friend's recommendation. This time, I went with Citysearch and other online reviews and I am so glad I did. I had Elena as a cutter and LOVED her. I have long hair and usually am so worried with new places and cutters. She put me at ease, gave me a great cut but without too much off, just enough to give shape but not to rob it of the length. They use Moroccan products (brandname) which I love and the price was not outrageous. I had a shampoo, condition (deep), cut and blow dry with all the usual added and it came to $104. Not bad for NYC! Also everyone and everything about the place just screams warmth. I am hopeful all the good reviews don't change what makes it special!
Timothy John is a pro! – I have had enough bad haircuts in my life to be nervous most times I walk into a salon. I read the reviews and got enough good feedback that I decided to see Timothy himself. I brought a picture in which he appreciated and he took the time to really talk to me about my hair and what I wanted. I felt like I was in good hands and pleased with the outcome of my haircut. I do believe you never know a great haircut until months later, once it's grown out. It's been a week and so far so good. Thanks Timothy for your time, expertise and friendliness.
Amazing style and color professionals! – I truly love spending my precious mommy time at Timothy John salon. The service is always amazing and they treat everyone like a celebrity. I am a stay at home mom who needs to feel her best when out in the neighborhood. Dawn made me feel like a super model. My color is so natural and she was able to cut my unruly hair so I can easily manage a style everyday. Thanks Dawn for making me feel beautiful.
Timothy is Amazing! Really the Best of Citysearch! – I feel so fortunate to have found Timothy of Timothy John's Salon. Timothy changed my hair from bleach blonde to a beautiful natural blonde that everyone is going crazy over. I gave me a new style without cutting all of my fried hair off, and I feel beautiful.
The salon is charming, clean, and everyone was very welcoming.
I found Timothy John's Salon from the Best of Citysearch page, and it is true! Timothy is the Best!
