4 years of love and locks – I've been getting my hair cut and highlighted at AR for 8 years. I found the place when I lived next door and as I moved around the city and settled in Bushwick, I'll never go anywhere else. It's high time I plastered a good review everywhere.
Roger has a flawless eye. I get my hair cut into layers and have had both very long and short hair over the years. Roger always finds an incredible shape that complements my face and lightens the load on my hair so it's naturally bouncy.
His ability to make highlights look totally natural is uncanny. I'm a dirty blonde by birth and he brings out the honey blonde shine. It's incredible. I get stopped on the street with complements.
I just got a cut and color tonight and am getting married in 3 weeks. I won't need anything other than a hair brush!
Did I mention they are the best price for a high fashion haircut within 100 miles?!
My old post: I learned what loving my hair could feel like in 2005 after my first cut at AR Hair. From the massaging shampoo to the quality and consistency of Roger's cuts, to the friendly people, to the right price, this is my salon, home away from home. I am complemented weekly on the beautiful layering of my hair cuts (so good, I can go 3 months without a cut and it grows but stays gorgeous). AR makes my affordable, but chic lifestyle possible. Thank you Roger! Thank you AR!
I'm a fussy guy when it comes to my hair. I'm the guy who gets his hair cut every three weeks so it never really looks like I need a haircut. I've been everywhere.
Then, I stumbled on Roger. I can't remember how many years ago, but now won't let anyone else touch my hair.
My hair grows very quickly, but he knows how to cut it so that, for most of the three weeks between cuts, I love the way it looks. It's a bit shorter at first, but it has to be.
I totally trust Roger. On occasion I've had to wait a bit, because he's taking his time with someone else, but that's fine with me. There are plenty of times I'm early and if he's free, he takes me early.
Everyone in the place is very friendly. They offer water, wine, whatever you want, when you walk in.
I sometimes have to rearrange my schedule and travel some to make it to my appointment, but I do it because Roger makes the trip worth it.
It's also a good place for guys to go. It has a feeling that is comfortable for men and women. Guys are some times put off if a salon looks like their mother's beauty parlor, but this is right down the middle, as it should be.
The price is right. The staff is great. Roger is awesome and just a heck of a nice guy.
absolutely perfect – best hair color i had in ages .perfect costumer service Arthur did an amazing color and cut . great ambiance .perfect spot to pamper your self
So glad I found Mike... – I've lived a life w/big, frizzy, curly hair always believing that noone could cut it in a natural style that I would feel attractive in. But, then, I found Mike. At the 23rd St location of A R Hair Salon is a surprise for ethnic hair... It CAN be cut wet and look great!
Not only will your hair look fabulous and get LOTS of compliments --- You're going to have a great time while you're there, too. Mike is hilarious and the rest of the staff is a lot of fun, too. Every time I go in, I am always made to feel so welcome and special.
But, Mike is not all fun and games. He is an artist and very serious about what he's doing. The last thing he will do is have you leave looking stupid. So, don't think you can talk him into chopping all your hair off or trying some style that will never fit your face or personality. He takes his time to study your natural hair pattern and he's going to disagree w/you if you're thinking about something that won't look right.
Just trust him and guaranteed you will leave looking and feeling sexy. :-)
Btw, I should probably add that I travel for these amazing cuts all the way from Long Island into Chelsea!
So, to all who live much closer than me, you should go check out this cool salon. Stop getting ripped off by people who claim they know what they're doing.
WORST HAIRCUT IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!! – Honestly I have never had a worse haircut or more frustrating experience in my life.
My hair was literally chopped and I had to go to a different salon and get it fixed. I could say you get what you pay for but in this case that would be a lie,that is the last time I try to save money by going to a cheap salon. RUN from this place,and the one on 17th/8th.
went to the one on 17 st and 8th ave. – I went to the salon on 17th street, my buddy recommended it to me. I went in, and didn't ask for anyone in particular. I got Vicki. She was great! Very friendly and made me feel comfortable. The atmosphere of the salon was great! My hair looked amazing, it was like she did something new. I went to many different stylists, barbers, etc. And Vicki was by far the best. I will definitely come back!
************** – I have always had a difficult time finding a stylist who could provide my curly hair with a cut that grows well or highlights that look natural. This has been a difficulty even at salons that cater to curly hair. Arthur has been providing haircuts and highlights for me for about eight months. I have never felt as good about my hair and have never received so many compliments on it. Thanks .
perfect gem – I went to AR HAIR SALON to color my hair from blonde to brown. Michelle, my stylist, did an amazing job! I was very nervous about the change, but it turned out great! I was very happy with the result and will definitely be going back. The atmosphere was also very friendly, and whole experience was positive. Take advantage of their citysearch discounts
