Stress Free Manageable Hair – Six weeks ago, I decided to treat myself to a Keratin treatment and made an appointment at the prestigious Ted Gibson salon. For years I tried hair straighteners' but they can cause havoc on your hair. Eric Rosado, stylist administered the Keratin treatment. His warm caring nature made me feel at ease. A knowledgeable and passionate stylist Eric ensures that his clients needs are met. The Keratin treatment leaves your hair soft, silky and touchable. I would definitely go back and recommend this treatment to my friends for every girl wants stress free manageable hair.
Awesome!! – I have gone to Eric Rosado for years now, and I loooooooove him!! He's got a great energy, and an intuitive understanding that heads are 3D, not 2D!! He's a REAL hairstylist!! And moreso, a REAL cutter!! I have long jet black asian an black hair, so it's not easy to deal with, but he stands by my decisions to keep it "natural," which I appreciate. lol He really is awesome!! I also love Jan Marie for color!! They are both amazing!! DO IT!!!!
See Eric for an amazing CHEMICAL-FREE Keratin Treatment! – Ladies, listen up!
Do you want smooth, sexy hair that will LAST all summer long? Well, now is the time to get it!
Now, the main question is: How does one get this hair? How can I make sure that the treatment is free of toxic chemicals?
I have the answer!
Eric Rosado!! You must see him at Ted Gibson Salon located in the FlatIron District on 5th and 23rd (184 5th Ave).
He IS my secret weapon. Not only does Eric give an AMAZING cut and blow-dry..he also treats your hair to a keratin treatment that is not only safe, it smells like green apples!!!
My hair smelled so wonderful and has stayed so silky smooth. I can’t say enough about Eric or this treatment.
It’s almost Memorial Day so summer will be here before you know it. BOOK NOW and your hair will be good to go all summer.
And if you are REALLY daring, Eric is also a master Great Lengths extension specialist.
So if you like my hair...even just a little...know it was ALL TED GIBSON. They WILL make you feel and look pretty. Their motto is Beauty is individual.
You’ll be treated like a celebrity from the moment you walk through the door.
We may not all be Beyonce or Anne Hathaway (just a few of their many celeb clients), but for a few hours, we sure will feel like them. And have Hollywood hair when we leave the salon!
So there you have it. My secret weapon—Eric Rosado. You’ll love him from the moment you meet him. ;)
My favorite hair salon in the city! – I'm so suprised someone said they had a bad experience. First of all, this is probably one of the most affordable high end salons in the city. I had partial highlights done for about $100, and the haircut about $100 too. They did an EXECELLENT job. The guy that cut my hair did it dry, and it's the best haircut I've had in the city. I've been to Bumble and Bumble, Red Door, Cutler, and Warren Tricomi to name a few....all in the name of a quest to find a great place. I finally found it. Beyond this, everyone is so friendly. There is no snobbery in this establishment. Everyone I spoke to went above and beyond, and they have a loyal customer in me now.
GOT LIED TO, BAD HAIR & BURNED! JUST DON'T GO!!! – Hidden charges had me paying almost $2,000 for one appointment alone. I didn't mind paying that much because I want my hair to look great but I was unhappy with the results and patches of my hair started falling out immediately. I called them to discuss what they could do to help. They then basically stood me up for my "repair" appointment by being completely unprepared. They told me they would call me once they figured out what they were doing but never called me back. I waited a few days for them to call me but no one did so I called them again and they started blaming me for being unsatisfied. Ted Gibson then called me personally and said, "It seems we just can't make you happy." I tried to explain that they hadn't yet followed through on the "repair" work but he told me to go find another salon. It really freaked me out and made me cry because I spent so much money and a famous guy was making me feel like I don't matter and I'm worthless. Just don't bother going here. They have an image they want to maintain and unless you are incredibly famous, you will be poorly treated no matter how much money you are willing to spend.
Worst! – Similar to the review below, Jason Backe turned my hair orange. It was shocking and nothing that I asked for, especially since I brought several photographs with me that I showed to him. He also seems to be really off mentally, he wasn't interested in being quiet while he worked, he raved about his recent plastic surgery procedures even though my only interest during my appointment was my own hair! When he finished, and my hair was orange, he claimed not to see it at all. It was really crazy. I had my hair cut by Liam who was so odd and paranoid, he made ME uncomfortable. He was also rude and didn't really deliver much of a haircut. Then he sulked about and made faces and gossiped obviously with other salon employees. Really unhappy, odd dude. This place is terrible. Don't go there!!!!!!! They will ruin your hair.
In all fairness... – This place is simply fabulous. My stylist was Eric and he gave me a beautiful cut and styling. I have long thick hair and stylists usually chop into it to make it manageable. This was certainly not the case at TG. I was also treated to a wonderful hand and arm massage, which included the use of hot towels. So nice. Everyone is super sweet and friendly. I went only for a cut, but in the past years, I had my color done here. The experience was always A +. The only reason I fell of off the TG wagon was because my work schedule interferred with my appointments. I truly think there was a mass exodus of employees (for whatever reason) and thereby it created the negative reviews. Not sure, but give this place a try. You honestly will love it. P.S.- You can get a terrific cut with wonderful styling for approx. $95.00 and experience the TG magic. Not too bad for Manhattan standards!
Really bad! – My hair turned orange!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (especially the roots) and the worse is that the hair colorist (Jason) was bragging about how great the color looked! While doing the color, he was saying that it definitely won't look brassy, ummmm, ok... well it did!!! Now I have to have it fixed. Will NOT go back there!
Smoke and Mirrors. – This salon is THE most horrible place in NYC. Aside from providing beauty school equivalent services, ghetto attitudes, and style-less employees they treat their assistants like dogs. The stylists have little experience and most have been on the floor for less than a year. The salon is never busy and most of the talented people have moved on to different salons. The manager is miserable. Ted and Jason are ass holes. They will put up a wonderful welcoming front but don't be fooled by the song and dance, there is no talent at this salon to back it up.
Why A Visit To Ted Gibson Is A MUST! – I felt it necessary to stick up for TG & Co while reading a negative review here and there (while it's very rare.) Not only do you feel like a catered princess as soon as you walk off the elevator (the guest coordinating staff always in smiles), but you leave feeling like a Queen! Recently I got my hair color done with Jan Marie and cut with Sade and let me tell you---the absolute BEST two services I have ever received in my life! Not only do they seem to be trained as highly skilled individuals, but both listened to exactly what I wanted and I got everything I wanted and more!
The associates give you amazing scalp and hand massages while you sip on your choice between water, coffee, or cappuccino! YUMMY! I've also met both Ted and Jason---who are two of the most amazing people in the industry. You instantly feel beautiful around them!!
