I've gotten 3 haircuts with Carol so far. The first time I went in, I didn't know what I wanted. Carol is really informed about what the latest fashions in hair are, and has a great eye for what will complement your specific features as well as your hair type. She talked out ideas with me and even told me what she was doing as she cut my hair. It was the best cut I had ever gotten. The latest cut I got from her was a short pixie with bangs. I've gotten so many sincere and enthusiastic complements on this haircut, to the point where people are stopping me in the hallway at work to tell me that they heard about my great new haircut! It looks beautiful! It's like an Audrey Hepburn but more modern. Carol is the best! And reasonably priced!
Horrible experience – Moving from LA, I was trying to find a good salon that wasn't overly expensive, but could give me a cute and fashionable look. I went on city search and found that Beehive had gotten great reviews and was voted best of city search so I gave it a shot. It was a bad decision. The stylists were rude and didn't listen to me, and the people at the desk were dismissive from the moment I got there. I really wouldn't have minded that, though, if I had gotten a good hair cut. It was without question the worst cut I've gotten in at least 7 years. It didn't complement my face at all, and just looked weird (the bangs were uneven and WAY too short). Moreover, when I went to pay, it was significantly more than what was advertised on the website. When I found another salon that I now go to and LOVE (and I'm not too picky, this was the next one that I went to), they said that the person who had done my hair before had destroyed it with the scissors and razors. I don't dye my hair or regularly straighten it so all the damage was from Beehive. Also, Beehive just sent me an email asking me to vote for them as best salon, so that might be why they have such a great ranking.
We are very sorry for the experience you had at The Beehive Salon. We take all of our clients concerns very seriously and will be following up with the staff to address the issues expressed in your review. Thank you.
didn't even walk in the door i was so turned off – i was looking for a salon in williamsburg so i wouldn't have to head into the city for a cut and color, upon reading all the ratings and reviews for this salon I called for an appointment. The girl who answered the phone was so rude and belittling I didn't even want to bother booking the appointment to try it out.

Looking for a stylist who understands short hair? – I have short hair and have had the same stylist for the last 12 years. She knew exactly what I wanted every time and did a fantastic job. You can imagine that when I moved away from her to NYC I felt at a complete loss. I tried several stylists at random salons but my hair either ended up way too short or lacked any kind of edge or sophistication. That is until I stumbled onto Brandi at The Beehive Salon.
Brandi completely understands how to cut and style short hair and is incredibly skilled at it. It is not often that one finds TWO people in their lifetime that absolutely get how to do their hair AND are so affordable.
If you are looking for a tremendously talented hair stylist, especially for short hair, Brandi at The Beehive Salon is your gal!
Did this place move? – I used to go here on Lorimer Street about eight or nine years ago and I really loved it. I enjoyed the adorable dachshunds they had running around too. Is this the same place?
It is the same place! You should come by to see the new location, it's more roomy and spacious!
Why did I wait so long? – I had been yearning for a new edgier do for sometime. I finally decided to but my trust in Bean and was not disappointed. She gave me a cut and color I had been dreaming about. I can't wait to see what she does next!
AMAZING for curly hair! – I have been struggling with my very curly hair since the fourth grade. Time after time I paid outrageous prices for mediocre to terrible cuts. All I asked for was curl definition and lift at the roots...simple requests that even the most experienced stylists could not accommodate.
Devacurl, a website devoted to curly hair, recommended Jeffrey from the Beehive Salon. I'd certainly had stylists recommended to me before who turned out to be disappointing, but I figured it was worth a try.
Turns out, Jeffrey was fantastic--he listened very closely to my concerns, took his time cutting my hair (he dry-cut each individual curl) and gave me easy-to-follow advice about caring for and styling my hair at home. I absolutely love my hair cut, and people constantly ask me who does my hair. If you have curly hair, Jeffrey is the only stylist you should consider seeing in New York City...or anywhere, probably.
I fly 3000 miles for Bean to do my hair – I live in Venice Beach, CA and happen to get an appointment with Bean for a cut. I went back home and not only did I love my cut but I kept getting compliments on my hair for MONTHS!!!
Who doesn't LOVE that!!
I had lost the person that cut my hair in LA and everyone else people "highly recommended" just fell flat of giving me a great cut.
After Bean cut my hair, I knew I was screwed, I had finally found my hair person, only problem is she's 3000 miles away!
I had to write a review because... Well I am writing this from NY after flying here to get my hair cut from Bean at her home on Long Island!
3000 miles seems like a long way to come for a cut, but honestly I can't imagine anyone else cutting my hair.
Friendly Staff, Excellent Atmosphere, Perfect Cut/Color! – Had an excellent experience at this spa getting my hair cut (and it's almost impossible to get my hair right!) and highlighting. I'm not so good at color selection and followed the advice of the stylist, and they turned out exactly like I was hoping they would. Really enjoyed the experience and the staff, the room was vibrant and well decorated... will definitely return and try out some more of their services!
Pros: Fun decor and staff, great treat in a fun neighborhood
Best Hair Salon!!! – I have been going to the Beehive Salon for almost 3 years now. Even after moving to NJ a year ago, I still make regular appointments for highlights and trims. It's the only salon where the stylists actually listen to what you want...and deliver. After my latest appointment, and opting for a brand new hair do, I received so many compliments from strangers followed by them asking me where I get my hair done. It's a fun, cool, beautiful salon where you not only can receive a great style, but you enjoy a fabulous Brooklyn-style backyard while you wait for your highlights to finish.
