Detail-oriented and focused stylists – I had John do my keratin straightening system yesterday. He was very detail-oriented and focused, very precise also. As far as I can tell 1 day after he did a good job with both the treatment and the haircut. My only complaint is that in the afternoon after my treatment I got home with a very irritated sore throat. My only explanation is that's from the keratin treatment vapors while blowdrying and flat-ironing my hair. In addition, 3-4 other people around me were getting the same treatment. The other stylysts offered their clients a mask, while John didn't even offer me one.
I liked the furniture of the salon. Some people worked on their laptops while having their hair done. However, I noticed a lot of tension between the people who worked there. They were not very friendly with each other.
Lee is now here – Lee is now at Le Salon Chinois so I, of course, had to move with her. Lee is still the best (she was at Ink) and this salon is even nicer than her former place. Plus the location is even more convenient. Lee is the best, most exacting and nicest stylist ever. She's even relaxed my hair, so I now have normal looking hair. Who knew that was even possible?
a must visit when in nyc – I spend the whole day at this salon getting my brazillian straightening. It usually takes around 4-5 hrs. I might be there for 5 hrs but ill feel like im at home with my girlfriends hanging out. Everyone is friendly and caters to your needs. My hair looks amazing when i leave. They are so careful with their products that my hair does not feel, look, or gets damaged. I walk out of the salon feeling like a barbie doll!!! i highly recommend this salon to everyone
An incredible deal – I went here for Spa Week and got a typical $75+ hair cut for only $50. I had this awful dutch boy bob and Christina gave me a short 'do that looked fabulous. More than that I didn't even need to style it (I have awkward wavy hair) for it to look neat. It just dried and fell perfectly after showering. Minimal hair spray on the bangs and it looked like I had just walked out of the salon. With hair that's a bizarre combination of wavy, curly, and straight this was a godsend. More than that, I called and got an appointment for the SAME DAY at that morning. The receptionist was friendly. the only drawback is that they charge you for missing the appointment, so if you make an appointment, make sure that you show up (not that I didn't learn that the wrong way).
best hair service in the world! – not only did i get 20% discount as a first timer i also got to experience the greatest hair service. My color was spectacular! I went from black to blonde and my hair felt and looked great. My haircut was just as amazing because i was given the most perfectionist bob cut ever. Sharp angled bob was what I wanted and it was what I got!
must see JOHN....
NO NOT GO THERE!!! – Ok, lets start with 50 year old style books then move on to the hair dressers who have REALLY BAD haircuts themselves and can hardly speak English!! On top of it all they are super rude. Don't waste your money because I can promise you that you will NOT be happy at all!!! There are so many good places in the city, trust me, do yourself a favor and don't go to that place or you WILL regret it!! If there was a way I can give NO stars as all, trust me I would!!!
Best Salon in NYC!!! – I tried this place last week and got the best mens cut I've ever got in New York. The pricing was more than fair and I'm rocking a cut that even my girl said, "looks amazing!". Look no further if you want an excellent cut!!!!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this salon! – So... love their work!!! They constantly cut, color and style my hair. They are absolutely professional and amazing results each time. But the only negative was when i wanted to use the spa, they were closed because they were expanding. But everything else is A+
love salon chinois – I desperately needed a bl*w out and styling done for a last minute fashion event that was invited to. SCRAMBLING i found Salon Chinois. They got me in right away and while i did mention that it was an EMERGENCY, they were so super nice about fititng me in. Patty, my stylist, re-styled my hair and even found time to cut it for me. All my friends loved my new look and i did too! Everything (even the party) was a total unbelievable success. Thank you so much Patty for making me look THIS GOOD!!
Loyal Client – Contrary to the previous comment i personally love this salon, i have been seeing Yan personally for over six years and he has been more than accommodating, and knows exactly what he's doing. Not only that but the atmosphere of the salon proves stellar and the staff is more then professional.
