The most fabulous new style I've ever been given – My regular hair guy was on vacation and I desperately needed a cut and color. Where to go? I looked up Hair Salons on City Search and selected K's Salon because of the consisten 5 star ratings. Wow! I scored an appointment with Kaye herself and is she fabulous! I told her I wanted a new look and a short cut. She looked at my present cut and we talked about what worked and what didn't. Same with color. She found a photo in a magazine that was similar to an idea she had for me. We agreed to a slightly different color and some highlights which I'd been wanting to try. I walked about looking like a different person - younger, edgy, sassy. Exactly what I wanted.
Kaye really heard what I was saying and worked with me. She has lots of creative ideas but isn't pushy. The salon is bright and upbeat. Lots of glass chandeliers, white walls, and retro pictures on the wall. The other stylists and assistants all look like they enjoy their work. I was offered a beverage several times while I waited.
I watched the other stylists work and every one of their clients walked out looking fabulous, too.
I will definitely go back to K's Salon. I'm glad I found it!
I loved this place!! – I just got back from the salon and I'm so happy I found this place!
They were all very nice, especially Theresa and Jo.
He did my hair and for once I felt like I had a hairdresser who actually listened to what I wanted. He was also so precise with everything he was doing that I didn't even need a magazine, I was just looking at what he was doing! It's a great place and I'm definitly coming back for my future haircuts! :-)
Best color salon – What a relief! After finding out that Curl Up & Dye salon had closed it's doors. I have found and followed my stylist Lissette to K's salon on 84th st. bet Amsterdam and Columbus. I just got my highlights and haircut and am glad to see she's still providing the same quality work. Love love love Lissette. You won't regret it.
I have been going to the top salons in new york city my entire life. I recently had a terrible color job done on my hair the evening of a premiere that meant a lot to me. I called a friend and she suggested that Michelle Becking could fix it in a dash. I hadn't heard of the salon prior but I was eager to look my best. I am taking the time to write this because Michelle is a miracle worker. Not only did she fix what was a botched up job but she gave me the most beautiful color job I have ever had done. I was a sight to be seen when I entered the salon and Michelle handled the situation with grace and with talent. Highest reccomendation I could possibly give.
The Best Hair color and cut on the West Side – I have been going to Michelle for hair color and Arthur for hair cuts for years. In fact, I have followed each of them from their last salon to K's. Michelle's color is perfection and Arthur is truely a hair stylist. Arthur's hair cuts are always the best!! Both Michelle and Arthur listen to what the client wants, but make recommendations that are always well thought out.
K's is a wonderful salon, professional but relaxed. I highly recommend the salon and particularly Arthur and Michelle.
FOR THE SUPER LOOK!
I've used Michelle, in K's salon, for many years and have gotten tons of wonderful comments on my terrific hair color. Michelle and Joseph(hair stylist) are perfect to work with because they take into account any comments you may express. Do yourself a favor and try Michelle and Joseph in K's salon. You won't be dissatisfied.
In Trish We Trust – I've lived in this city for 3 years now and went through no less than 8 stylists in the first two years. I came from Chicago where I was rabidly loyal to my stylist there because she would never use clippers to do anything but clean up the sideburns and nape. Seriously, the sound of them alone makes me nauseous, as I think of someone using a "Number 2" to buzz my entire scalp. Anyway, I was complaining to a friend about the ordeal that is finding someone you're comfortable with and he recommended Trish @ K's Salon. I've been going there for a year now and will never think of going elsewhere. I am especially inspired to write a review today because Trish has truly blown my mind this time. I'd been growing out my hair for 8 months and every time I stopped in for sculpting, she took time to really shape it in a way that got me rave compliments left and right. But then today it was time for the big Spring Chop. I took in a photo of something I liked just to give her an idea of the length and texture I was looking for and then I closed my eyes. 45 minutes and a 2-foot pile of hair later, she had given me EXACTLY what I asked for. Actually, she did one better - she modified the style in a way that fits my face and my personality. I'm still looking in the mirror every chance I get to beam at the new 'do. Trish understands the textures of men's hair like no one else I've ever been to and she has a confidence with sheers that makes me feel entirely comfortable letting her make decisions with a snip here and there. Plus, she's petite and adorable and conversational. If you need to feel at ease before you let someone hack away at your hair, Trish is your gal. She won't disappoint.
K is the best stylist in Manhattan – i just have to say... K is the best hair stylist i've ever been to and i've been to a lot. a few years ago one of my good friends got the cutest haircut and was going on and on about this woman she had found (K). she told me i HAD to go to her. i was skeptical at first... it seemed that wherever i had gone in the past always disappointed. i have naturally wavy, sometimes frizzy hair, and though i would try new stylists with high hopes, my hair just really never came out right and i ended up sort of becoming resigned about it. well, after my friend continually bugging me about going to get a cut with K, i finally made an appointment. i remember sitting in her chair as she took a good look at me, the shape of my face and my features, and then after discussing with me the general look or "vibe" i was going for- she went to work. when she was finished i seriously almost cried... because it looked so good and it looked so ME. like the cut i was meant to have and never even knew it. ok... maybe this sounds a little melodramatic, but i really was so excited and happy with the way i looked. apparantly, so were other people. i've received more compliments on my hair (including the occasional stranger coming up and asking where i get my hair done) since i've been going to K than ever before. She really is an artist. Oh, and she is hilarious too...!
Love K's Salon, Love Trish – I have been going to K's now for quite some time, and I love it. I see Trish, who I've been with for years. She is incredibly talented, helps me figure out what to do with my hair (and what's best for my hair), and she's always right on. In addition to being a great stylist, she also does an awesome job with highlights. Once Trish has worked her magic, I literally feel like a different person, and I always love the outcome. She's truly a gem! Besides K's being a great salon (they just expanded and the place looks amazing), if you do check it out, you should try to book an appt. with Trish. You won't be disappointed, and you'll be glad that you finally found someone you can trust when it comes to you hair.
Well kept secret – Off on a side street, K's is not well known, but truly should be. It has a warm and intimate environment and you really get the feeling the stylists enjoy working there. More importantly, the quality of the work done there is outstanding! Trish has been doing my cut and color for 5 years. Her cuts are flattering and her color is just beautiful. While she listens carefully to what I want, Trish is also willing to offer her dead-on suggestions. I am never disappointed, nor will you be.
