Best Kept Secret is NOT a secret anymore....LOVE IT!! – I wanted to thank Janet Rufin Parlor for making my new transformation. I started out with extremely dense, thick hair past my shoulders that I have cut recently. I have long jet black hair but I went too far last December and had a single color process done by another stylist to my virgin tresses and of course even the hair stylist was adamant to touch my hair. But I was relentless to shed my locks and strip my jet black hair of its lustrous natural color and went red. I was excited with the results but didn’t realize the maintenance it would take to retain that color so opted to grow my hair out, I guess letting color grow out is not a bad idea. Well for any stylist that’s a NO-NO but I didn’t care. Today, Janet and her team of color stylist wanted to take my hair off in stages as this was a drastic change I had never tried but was excited to embrace it! Sean with his quick techniques and savvy approach knew exactly what I needed to rehabilitate my tresses and Janet executed with such finesse I knew I was in good hands. I must admit I was a bit hesitant but after all, Sean has been featured on the W Magazines and Vogue and with Janet having featured on Allure, Bride, Time Out and New York and is known to be the best kept secret in highlights and coloring.
So after assessing my current grown-out single color process, Janet and Sean laid out the most viable option in flooding my single process by using two different tones to create different reflections of light without being stripe looking highlights and the process was quick, efficient but the results just blew me away.
Pictures may not do justice but I’m a hard buyer so to convince “muah”, it has to have a wow factor and this was an exciting experience but I must admit it’s more than a wow factor. I love it!!!
Thank you to Janet Rufin Parlor!! I truly believe that each of you have attributed a unique and individual way of representing beauty and it is journey to a more beautiful ME!!!
Unpretentious and Professional – This is my kind of place--relaxed, no-fuss atmosphere with careful, detail-oriented professionals. They are friendly and gracious, not cloying. Janet introduced me to her Spanish line of soy-based color, and i realized i'd always assumed you have to choose between the ideal color and the ideal texture--i'd always experienced color as a necessary evil. But Janet's color and her touch (nice consult, head massage, attentive assistant) have won me over! I highly recommend this parlor and consider the services a value, esp at this Gramercy Park location at the greenest corner of Irving Place.
Never again... – I have no idea how this place got so many good reviews. I went to JRP for a Brazilian Blowout Zero treatment I got on Groupon. The guy who did my hair was nice enough but the treatment did absolutely nothing for my hair. To the point where I don't want to call and complain because I wouldn't even go back if they offered to do it again. Aside from the treatment not working, my hair is very thick so it took a bit longer to blow dry. Jeff sort of passed me off to not one but two other women to blow dry my hair and he never checked up on me after that to see if I was satisfied. When I was all done the girl working the front desk asked if Jeff had explained aftercare and what not. Nope, he actually didn't explain anything about the whole process in general. She then told me that they "highly recommend" I buy the special Brazilian Blowout $32 shampoo and $32 conditioner. I asked if I could find a cheaper alternative at Duane Reade and she very reluctantly said yes.. but she couldn't even give me a brand to buy! They clearly want you to buy their products. Not worth it.. I went to Duane Reade and found something right away. Anyways, $200 down the drain!

absolutely amazing! – I went to Janet Rufin's Parlor to get a brazilian blowout and I am so glad that I did. I purchased a Groupon for the treatment and never had anything like this done before. I had read reviews here on CitySearch and was nervous by what some past clients had said. I was nervous but as soon as I got there, Brian made me feel so comfortable. he explained exactly what he was going to do and what would happen during the treatment. He was super attentive, always asking how I was doing. He did an amazing job on styling my hair afterwards how I usually do myself. I love the results! My hair has never been more straight, soft or smooth. I was able to wash and air dry my super curly hair with no products, blow drying or curlers necessary! It is the most unbelievable thing ever! If you have ever thought about getting the keratin treatment, Groupon or not, go to Janet Rufin's Parlor! You won't be dissappointed!
Terrible Experience – I went to Janet Rufin's to get the Lazio Keratin Treatment. Maybe because I used a Living Social coupon they treated me differently, but regardless the treatment did not work. Vicki (who also washed my hair?) applied the treatment and although the people were very nice, it did absolutely NOTHING for my hair. I've gotten Keratin before and I know how it should turn out, and my hair still frizzes just as much as ever. When I called to complain, the man I spoke to on the phone told me that I didn't know what I was talking about and was rude and dismissive. I definitely do not recommend going to this salon unless you want to waste your time and money on processes that don't work.
Japanese Hair Straightening – I underwent Japanese hair straightened with Sal at Janet Rufin's. I've been getting this processing for years and years now, but it was my first time with Sal. He did a FANTASTIC job. My hair came out silky straight and smooth, but not limp and flat. Moreover, my hair is in excellent condition. I'm really thrilled with the results.
Stacey is Awesome! – My hair is wavy and has a mind of its own. I have had a hard time finding someone who can cut it in a way that lets me be able to be the wash and go kinda girl that I am. Stacey did an awesome job! She really listened to me and did what was needed to revive my hair. I would go back to her in a heart beat!
AMAZING SALON – I went to janets for the first time for a new look. Stacey listened to my needs and did a lengthy consultation to make sure she understood what i wanted(unheard of in other salons) She then gave me an amazing color and cut ,I left feeling great !!!!!!!!!! The overall experience was terrific from Stacy to every member of the salon . Highly reccomend for all!!!!!
Fantastic Salon! Inspirational & Chic. – I recently visited Jenet Rufin's Parlor for the first time. It was a wonderful experience. Janet took the time to listen to my ideas and put in her own input/expertise so that together we could come up with a look I would love! Which Janet created spot on.
The atmosphere in the Parlor is calming and modern. I know that I have found Janet Rufin's Parlor to be the place I shall always go for my hair needs!
