Happy with my hair!!!! – I started going to AR salon a couple months ago to correct a hair coloring that went wrong when I decided to do my own coloring to become a brunette. My hair is naturally a blondish brown color. I made an appointment with Arthur. I should say he is not only a great cutter but also a great colorist. I love my hair now and I get asked all the time if this is my natural hair color....which is great... :) And my hair shines beautifully each time after coloring. I highly recommend AR salon for hair coloring and cut ! One more thing this is the cleanest salon I've ever been to.
Snooty & not willing to listen – I chose AR Salon because of its fantastic reviews. First of all, no one ever sat down with me to talk about my hair. My stylist, Sam, basically asked what I wanted, and when I tried to explain exactly what, he looked bored and cut me off. Then he insulted my hair. Then he proceeded to give me the weirdest haircut ever. After I explained that my bangs were too long and they need to be shorter to do what I want them to, he argued with me and refused to cut them. I ended up with an awkward cut that's way too long and blunt with a too-short layer on top and weird bangs that take forever to style. Actually, the whole mess takes forever to style and, when I'm done, looks mediocre at best. This is not a problem with my styling skills, as it's still an improvement over what he did to it before I left. The worst part was not the horrible haircut, it's that he refused to listen to any feedback I had.
If I go back, I will specify one of the stylists mentioned in these reviews.
So relieved... – After several disappointing and very expensive experiences at 2 other major NY salons, I was very nervous about trying yet another new hairdresser. But after reading great reviews, I made an appointment with Mark at AR, and my only regret is not finding him sooner. The salon is tiny and nothing flash, but everyone was very friendly with zero attitude which was a pleasant change. Mark spent 10mins going over what I did and didn't want and looking through colour charts with me. He also outlined the cost for each part of the service so there were no surprises and I got a great permanent colour and cut for literally half the price of the last Greenwich salon I visited. I would definitely recommend Mark and am very relieved my search is over. This is the only review I have ever posted - that's how happy I was with my experience!
Marvellous! – Go to this salon RIGHT NOW!. You will look great, guaranteed. ARTHUR will make your hair color look fantastic and will take years off your age. Plus, he's funny and a pleasure to talk with.he will give you a great cut and make you feel ready to tackle the hippest clubs. Your style and color will last a very long time (months) and you will probably go back to the salon sooner than your look requires, simply because you miss the atmosphere. Thay serve coffee and other beverages, . Make an appointment today.

ar hair salon has complit package – If you are looking for a reasonably priced, fabulous cut and color, look no further than Sami at AR hair salon. I discovered Sami over a 2 month ago when I approached a stranger on the subway whose color I admired. She led me to Sami . I have since spread the word to colleagues, friends and family, and we are all now gorgeous blondes...thanks to Sami !! AR hair salon has the complete package...a talented staff, service with a smile, a great location, a great atmostphere and an unbeatable value!
best hair stylist ever – My hair has always been difficult. I went from salon to salon telling stylists the cut i thought i needed. These ideas would come from pictures in magazines, cosmo, movies etc., and time after time, the cuts i got seemed to me to be the same thing, that is, i didnt feel pretty... MY HAIR DIDNT MAKE ME FEEL HOT!! I thought i was cursed to a life of unflattering hair, that is until i met Arthur @AR hair salon First of all, he was the first stylist that took a seat right next to me at eye level and talked about my hair and listened to all i had to say about my situation and i didnt feel weird or embarrassed, he made me feel comfortable, like we were both on the same mission to find my 'HOTTIE'. We forgot about those photoshop illusions and worked with what I had. The cut was full and vibrant. I felt like claudia cardinale.
i am amaised – i called the salon at 11:30 am on a monday as a first time client and was able to get an appointment with Mark at 1:00 pm that same day. I had not cut my long and very thick, rather unruly hair in a year and I can honestly say he gave me one of the best cuts I've ever had in my life. He seemed to intuit my needs and understood exactly what I wanted, even though I wasn't entirely sure what that was until he was finished. Though the salon is small and I wouldn't want to have a long wait there (I didn't) because I'm slightly claustrophobic I really can't conceive of a better cut for the money--but it would also stand up against anything twice as expensive, which is what I'm used to. Having a great haircut is the best!
cute hair salon – I came to this salon by my friend's referal. I just moved to the neighbourhood and was looking for a new salon. When i came for my appointment I felt this great atmosphere right away... Everyone there was very friendly and helpfull. Needless to say I received a great cut and made an appointment to get my hair hilighted the next week!!! I highly recomend this salon for everyone who is looking for an outstanding service....
