Feel Like An A Lister! – As a woman who likes to look poised, I think most women will agree that our hair is the one thing that completes our look. Glenn Jason understands and for this I must say he isn
This place rocks! – Do you want to go to the hair stylist that the stars wish they knew about? Well check out Glenn Jason Hair Design, I did and I felt pampered and taken care of from beginning to end. But while that?s nice, what?s most important aspect of this equation is that I looked great! I have to say he?s a cool guy, and knows what?s in, and whether or not you can work it!
I also expected to pay lots of cha-ching but it cost me just $100 and my friend, who?s a dude, paid only $70 ? guys always get off cheaper. The consultation was personal and fun, and frankly I?m sending all my friends, so you might have trouble actually scoring an appointment. Anyway the studio is awesome, very airy, and while he lives and works there, you never feel out of place. Its close to public transportation too - we rolled into Penn station, and walked a few blocks and we were there.
Stylistic Perfection – Glenn Jason isn’t your run of the mill hairstylist- his resume reads like an “it list” of famous hairstyling programs and salons. He’s worked his way through training programs and salons ranging from Aveda to Vidal Sassoon, Rusk and Bumble and Bumble, and has even taught at some of these institutions. Having worked as a DJ and come up through the punk scene, he’s always had his finger on the pulse of what’s trending. He offers comprehensive consultations, so that you and him can determine what style and color really fits you before breaking out the scissors. He’s also an expert in hair straightening, offering the latest Japanese keratin treatments that can render the coarsest hair silky. You can trust him with color as well. He treats both women and men, with men’s priced at $70, women’s at $100.
His intimate, yet spacious live/work Chelsea location is just blocks from Penn Station, which makes it ideal for suburban, Long Island commuters as well. He only takes in two clients at a time, so expect a totally personalized and customized experience. He can cut and style your hair to an exact match of a photo of a hairstyle you think is hot, so feel free to pack a picture if you want.
Great Cut! Great Place! – If you are looking for an edgy look and is willing to put it in the hands of the person cutting your hair, than this is the place for you. Don’t expect precise cuts that take minutes among minutes cutting strand-by-strand making sure each one is even. When you get a haircut here, it’s more about the way it looks afterwards than the amount of time cutting your hair that matters.
I often find myself not knowing what haircut I want to get next. I admit, sometimes I’m indecisive. I don’t want to have to tell somebody how I want my haircut and what I want done to it. I want them to just do what they feel will look great. That’s what I love about this place and it has been exactly what I was looking for.
Don’t go here if you are a control freak and want things done one way and like to get pampered at your salon. It’s actually the complete opposite and that’s what’s great about it. The atmosphere feels very chill and comfortable, super realistic. It totally alleviates any pre-jitters before getting a cut. It’s original, it’s fashionable and it’s all the rage. Take a risk and go here!
More than Just Hair – What a hip place and what a talented artist! Glenn knows just what to do when it comes to hair. This guys looks at every head like it is a piece of art. He can invent a look for you that will have heads turning as you walk down 5th ave. He is a master at everything from color, cutting or straightening. He also know exactly what products to suggest for you hair type and he shows you how to style your hair so that it doesn’t just look good on the day you leave the shop, rather is looks good always!
I have been looking for a new stylist for the past year since mine decided to pick up and move to LA. After trying out several different trendy salons a friend suggested I go see Glenn. I needed someone that I could trust with my hair and my friend who is rather vain said this is the man for you. She has been working with Glenn for years and I must say, she always looks super trendy with her hip hairstyles.
At this point I have three men in my life that I can’t live without: My husband, My son and my stylist Glenn.
wherever you go, hair you are – After reading a slew of reviews about this seemingly controversial hair salon, I decided to take a gamble and try Glenn Jason on for size. As someone who is VERY particular about my hair and almost chronically dissatisfied with new stylists, I have to say that I did not hate my experience here, which is huge. My aunt has worked for Bumble and Bumble for most of her adult life and I have been extremely spoiled when it comes to finding a new do’, mostly because she just decides for me and goes with it. My biggest pet peeve with stylists is that they tend to get scissor happy and end up cutting way more off than I ever want. Glenn was totally accommodating to my needs of “keeping the length”, something that is almost impossible to explain once you’re sitting in that chair. His friendly disposition and potty mouth are a perfect match for my cynical attitude and rivaling sailor’s mouth. I disagree with other reviewers who say that spending a short amount of time on a person’s hair means that it isn’t a quality haircut, or that they feel they’re paying too much for not enough work. I’ve had stylists spend up to 45 minutes on my hair and it ends up looking like a trainwreck, and others who do a fantastic job in just a few minutes because they really know how to work with hair. Glenn Jason falls into the latter category. Friendly, accommodating, professional, and unabashedly New York, he may be my new favorite addition to maintaining my mane.
Barbershops will never go out of style but Salon shops are quickly becoming the main competition.
Glenn Jason Hair Design is a hip and eccentric place to get your hair cut or rather "designed."
The owner, Glenn, is an amazing person, who knows exactly what he's doing, and you can surely trust him with your hair.
The atmosphere is postmodern and hip, which gives off a more futuristic feel to the facility.
Glenn Jason Hair Design, is an amazing hair salon, and you just have to get your hair cut here once.
Rock and Roll, Glenn! – I went to Glenn a month or so ago and plan on returning because I love the atmosphere as well as the man himself. Both the place and the man are unusual, hip and amusing, and that's what I want given that I live in New York City and could otherwise go to any number of usual and serious salons. Glenn has a great education, and it showed in my cut. I've got thick, coarse curly hair, and after an excellent consultation with him I've now got a cut where I can work my hair rather than work against it. He's also a reknowned colorist, so next time I think I'll go for color, too.
His website is fantastic, and an easy way to book an appointment. Check it out because it'll give you a taste of his vibe. I think it represents him well. Rock and roll, Glenn!
Also, for those of you who don't already know this: etiquette dictates that you don't need to tip the owner of a salon if s/he cuts/colors/whatevers your hair. Might make you feel a little better about the prices, which really aren't bad compared to other salons in NYC anyway.
LEGIT – 2 yrs it took… to find someone I can trust to cut my hair - Glenn ALWAYS hooks me up with a good cut and is a cool dude to shoot the sh*t with.
I bought a keratin blowout on living social. I made the soonest appt, which was two months away. A week before my appt, I got a message that there was a glitch in the scheduling and I had to be rescheduled. I've left two messages at the main number (which is never answered) and no one has called me back for over a week (and no one returned my previous unrelated message from over a month ago). No one answers the cell phone number I was given after numerous attempts, and there is no voicemail. Now, after waiting two months, I have to seek a refund. Don't waste your time.
