East Village Best Hair Salon – I walked passed this salon after reading an article in the New York Times about 7th street in the East Village being one of the best streets in manhattan. I deciced to walk the stretch of 7th st down to ave D and they were right what an amazing street and what an amazing salon. When I walked by they were under renovations and I could see the new modern feel of the salon on one side versus the old style look that the salon originally had on the otherside. I walked in to inquire about getting my hair straightened and highlighted and met with one of the owners Younghawk. He was very tall but not intimidating in the least. He sat me down with a glass of wine and gave me a consultation on my hair goals and what I was looking for. I felt so good after talking to him that I booked an appointment for a partial highlights and a brazilian keratin treatment. 3 days later I come in and get my hair done and its just more than incredible. I have never had highlights that has so much brightness and glossy shine and the keratin treatment took all that kink out of my hair and made it smooth I can't stop touching it. Younghawk did such an amazing job I feel transformed. My only hangup is that with the keratin treatment you can't wash your hair right away or wear a pony tail till you wash the stuff out in a few days but it was so worth it. I am looking forward to my haircut next. Plus the name of the salon is soooo cute. Salon Champu its like madison ave in the east village without the prices. Thank you Younghawk

I'll never go anywhere else. – People stop me on the street to tell me how much they love my haircut. I don't want to gush, but this is the best I've ever looked. I came in not knowing exactly what I wanted, and Nikki took her time helping me find something that would make me happy (a short, asymmetrical cut). Their stylists are very experienced and well educated. In addition to being totally hot, my haircut is technically very well done and grew out nicely.
I've been to a lot of "hip" salons on the Lower East Side/East Village, but I've never felt as awesome as when I walked out of this place. Everyone is incredibly friendly, and the prices are completely reasonable for the quality.
I've been going to cutting image for some time now, and I've had such a great experience there that I've decided to post a review (1st one on citysearch!).
When I (male, mid-20s) moved into manhattan back in september, I tried out of a few stylists in the area, and Melissa was the winner hands down. She has a great eye for hair, incredible technique, and has one of the nicest, friendliest personalities I've ever come across. Every time I come in, I know I'll leave looking better than I entered, and feeling better after spending some of my afternoon chatting with her. Unfortunately, this poor NYU student has to step down to cheap cuts at the local barber shop (not that the prices here aren't very reasonable and worth every penny). That means, sadly, no more Thursday afternoon cuts at the salon. But, for everything you've done, thanks Melissa!
Best men's haircut in the East Village – For guy's looking to find a place that 's not a big hassle, but does a great job cutting men's hair, check out Cutting Image. Specifically, I recommend Nikki (Nicole Sifuentes). I have a suit-&-tie job, but I don't want to look suit-&-tie when I go out. I'm in my late 20s and Nikki's cut has allowed me to balance both professional for the day, and East Village for the night. Thanks Nik.
Great everything---atmosphere, customer service, highlights, cut, wine – I was lucky that my first hair cut in New York was here. I read all the reviews before I made my appt for a partial highlight and hair cut--and I am so glad I did. I was actually 10 minutes late and thought I'd get an earful... but actually Nikki was very understanding. Nikki did my highlights and my hair cut. She was exceptional. I usually don't leave reviews on city search unless a business is either really bad or really good---and Cutting Image really is on the really good side. Nikki was friendly and approachable. I could tell her what I wanted done to my hair and she listened. Nikki truly has a strong background working with hair. I work in Stamford and do the reverse commute---and it also helped that I was able to book an evening appt. Nikki is really talented at what she does---recommending which color highlights would go well and knowing which products to use for whatever type of hair---Nikki really knows hair. I will be going back again! Oh!---and they have wine too---it was good! :)
Place To GO! – I recently went and got a cut and color at CUTTING IMAGE hair salon and had the BEST experience ever. The stylist really listen to everything you say and are so nice and very informative on styling tips. They also serve wine and it is so cute and cozy inside. Thanks for my great style...
I have never cried harder over a haircut – I went to this place because it was so highly recommended on citysearch. The people there are very nice, but it is by far the worst haircut I have ever had in my whole life. I was very clear that I just wanted a trim - only about an inch off - and that I did not want a new style. The stylist cut my hair so short - she must have taken off 4 inches - so that now it is only about an inch long. It looks like someone ran over it with a lawn mower. I never thought a hair cut could make me feel so horrible - it's like she wasn't listening at all. This place was expensive and I expected to walk out with a great cut. I wish I had never gone there - it will take months for it to look somewhat normal again.
Best color, highlights and Kids cuts – I been going to Cutting Image for two years now. It is a very cozy and relaxing place. The service is reliable and fantastic. Since I have had MELISSA cutting and coloring my hair I look and feel more confident with myself. She is very sweet and friendly, she is well trained in haircuts, color and highlights. She is able to match skin tones and face types perfectly and give you hair to match your personalilty. (this is sooo hard to find!!)
I recently started having her cut my kids hair as well. She is just great, and patient. My children just love her! She was able to give my son a haircut like Zac Efron(High School Musical) just from a picture. My son was so happy. If you are looking for a REAL PROFESSIONAL hair stylist MELISSA is it. Cutting Image is the place!!!
AWESOME!! – Cutting Image is the BEST hair salon around. I've been going for about 2 years now and I'm never disappointed. My stylist Nikki is FANTASTIC!! Blow-out, cut, style or color ...you will NEVER be disappointed. Highly recommend this place....
A+ across the board!!!!
Get yo' hair did!! :)
