Great Stylist! I'm so happy to finally have someone I can trust and that does not need much direction. When you leave a Salon you want to look great and feel every dollar you spent was worth it. I not only felt great but looked it too! ALL I WANT TO SAY IS THANK YOU JC!
Wont go anywhere else – I have been going to Panyc for years, following them from location to location... and now loving the new spot on 17th. In a non-descript typical Flatiron building, a stark yet comfortable salon awaits, you wouldnt know it as you take a tiny dingy elevator up. The staff is so accomodating, and all I can say is JC is AMAZING! I have had nightmares occur when I've needed to get a touch up for an upcoming event and pop into a salon that will take a walk-in, or when bridemaids hair goes horribly WRONG! I always run back to JC who manages to fix me right up! I cant say enough about these guys!!
Seriously Good Hair – They aren't just going to do exactly what you say if it isn't going to be good. The cuts and color are always classy. JC is AMAZING. I always walk out happy, pretty and refreshed. Love these guys. True professionals.
PAULINE = My favorite colorist EVER! – PAULINE is a senior colorist at PANYC and she does an amazing job! I live in the area and have been bouncing around from salon to salon; never really finding the right colorist...until now. I walked past PANYC several times and finally decided to give it a try. I chose PAULINE because she is a senior colorist and her prices are a bit lower than the master level. The consulation was top notch and the end result even better. She is such a sweet girl and really knows what she's doing. You can tell she's got lots of experience. I'VE FINALLY FOUND THE ONE!!!
Really great find – I'm from Seattle and have just these past two months started living in NYC. Haircuts are my one big splurge, even in my home town I'd pay 60$ for a cut and 120$ for a color! so I was hoping to find a least similar prices in New York.
I found Panyc on Citysearch and called to see when they had an opening. He first offered a SAME DAY CUT for 90$, and when I asked if there was anything cheaper he offered a same day 75$ FOR A CUT. Perfect.
I headed over the slightly SKETCHY neighborhood and even more sketchy building where you have to ring up to have them let you in and then take a 3x3 foot elevator ride up to the fifth floor.
However as soon as I got up into the salon my confidence was restored. It's big and open, with lots of light and sparse, but eclectic decor.
There WEREN'T THAT MANY PEOPLE around, probably because it was a Wednesday afternoon, but the staff welcomed me right in.
I had a really relaxing shampoo and SIMON took me to the chair promptly at 4. What a sweet guy! He was really ATTENTIVE to what I asked for. I WANTED TO TAKE OFF A GOOD SIX INCHES so he really coached me through it and all the changes that might occur to my hair. He started snipping and after about 15 minutes I FELL ASLEEP! He didn't wake me up, he simply cradled my head and proceeded to give me great haircut. When I woke up he had very timidly took off length and said that if I decided I wanted it shorter later in the week I could get a trim for free. He's great and really gentle. I think I will go back and get it a little shorter, mainly just to hang out at the salon a little more! With a generous tip for Simon and the shampoo girl my total came to 95$.
Ignore the bad reviews, this place is great.
Best Haircolor EVER!!!!!!!! – I am here to say that Pauline is the absolute best hairstylist in THE WORLD! She started doing my hair about 2 years ago and it has been perfect everytime. She is truly passionate about what she does and it shows in her work. I would recommend her to anyone that wants their hair done right.
No BS: Just Great Color and Cuts – Marylou, PJ and Pauly have come a long way from the little space they began with in the East Village to the current loft on West 17th. This is because they work hard, know the business, make good business decisions and choose to provide great service at prices clients can afford, instead of trying to "wow" their clientele with a lot of idiotic extras (i.e. a cheap glasses of wine, live people handing you toilet paper in the bathroom instead of leaving you alone to rip it off the cob by yourself, which is far preferable...). PANYC is a down-to-earth Salon that makes everyone and anyone, regardless of age, sexual preference and attitude feel really comfortable. No matter what style you are looking for, whether you're conservative or looking to do something completely wild, you will get what you came for and feel you are in competent and creative hands. Marylou has got to be one of the best colorists in New York and PJ, Michael, Pauley, Sonia are a fantastic line up of cutters. Strangers stop me in the street to admire my color and hair all the time and I tell them: "Stay calm and PANYC,"
GO SEE PAULINE FOR COLOR – I have been going to PANYC for years to get my hair cut, and I’ve always been more than satisfied with the results. I recently decided to start coloring my hair and was told by one of the receptionists that PAULINE was the girl to see. She came highly recommended, mainly because she’s been doing it for so many years and has tons of experience. I was nervous at first because I’m very picky about my hair, and I’ve had bad experiences in the past with people who do not listen to what I want. Pauline paid careful attention to what I asked for and made suggestions appropriately, but did not force her ideas on me. In short, because I could go on all day about how great she is, my hair came out amazing and I received numerous compliments from friends and family, even from strangers! Pauline is diligent and efficient, but besides the quality of her work, she is genuinely nice. So why pay more seeing a master level colorist when you can see Pauline and get the same results in literally half the time? If you’re looking to color your hair, I absolutely without a doubt recommend seeing PAULINE over any one else at the salon.
The hair whisperer – Ok so here's what you need to know.
First I am about as rational as a 5 year old child when it comes to my hair. I NEVER want to cut it or fuss with it. In fact, there are plenty of days when I find that I actually have mats that resemble dread locks in the back of my head at the bottom. Ok, that's a little embarrassing but it needs to be said. I only brush it occasionally and it usually looks long and a little ragged which can come off as a little charming - which I like.
So, I realized that I need a hair color treatment for the summer just to liven things up and I heard about this place Panyc (cute, paNYC) Uh, it took me a while to get it.
Anyway, I get there after calling for directions while standing right outside the entrance (it IS hard to spot, but the receptionist was more than patient) and I sit in the chair musing at how my moderately ragged hair looks DRAMATICALLY more ragged when compared with all the perfectly styled heads of hair in the place. But, I still maintain my resistance to cut my hair... I'm just here for color. I was a little nervous when the stylist walked up but I have one word for you:
If you come here ask for her.
She comes trotting up with blown out feathery blond short hair a huge smile and she starts examining my treacherous locks with a look of intention. She charms me right from the start, but the real achievement was my hair (I'm easily charmed... it's a curse). ;)
She immediately sees that a good 4 inches of my hair is basically dead and I REFUSE to let her cut it. This is huge. For a hair stylist to actually listen to me and NOT cut off my dead ends is really remarkable and I'm sure it was very difficult for her as a professional. Plus, I wanted color which means that she had to work veritable magic to get the color even from the healthy roots all the way down to the dried out ends. She did it like it was nothing! Truly amazing.
I left with rich amazing golden brown for the summer (think coffee with soy milk that has been swirled with caramel and sprinkled with golden powder... yeah, delicious). And I even got a few really good tips for tying to maintain my hair the way it is.
She was patient with my neurosis and anxiety about my hair and I felt completely comfortable and confident. She listened and used her knowledge to work with me and have me leave looking amazing.
I even got bonus tips for my skin care - no joke! My skin looks amazing too.
It's 100% worth the price and Sonia will do whatever you need. Trust me, if she could make my hair work she's the hair whisperer.
Sonia works blonde MAGIC !!! – A couple weeks ago, I went to Panyc Salon because I was in desperate need of a re-do on my color. I had been highlighting my hair for a long time. It got to the point were I decided to leave my stylist of ten years because my was ORANGE and no matter how many times I brought it up, it always turned out the same tone. After meeting Sonia, I felt even better about my decision. She spent a half hour on our consultation, and explained how long it would take to get my hair were I wanted it to be. After mixing four bowls of color of low-lights and high-lights, she completely changed my hair from that orange toned mess to the perfect color. I Found my stylist, I found my salon!!! Thank You Sonia
