GO HERE – This is the first time I tried a stylist in NYC since I'd been loyally been going to a salon out in Brooklyn because it was much cheaper than city prices. I found Salon Stanley here on city search and with all the great reviews, I decided I'd bite the bullet and pay a little more to see what all the rage was about....
I called and got an appointment the same day. The staff is really friendly. I have short hair that I butchered myself out of impulsivity. I pretty much asked Stanley to please, just fix it. He did a great job. My hair is short, but still super feminine. It's funky, choppy and low maintenance. He thinned out my blunt cut bangs and framed the rest of the cut to really compliment the shape of my face. I told him I was trying to grow my bangs out because they looked so horrible. But after he did some work on them, I really like it now and will probably just keep them this way from now on! All I have to do is throw some product in my hair and I'm good to go. This was exactly what I was looking for and needed.
I have always kept my hair short and am somewhat carefree with how other people have cut it in the past, since it just grows back so quickly. However, I was really impressed with Stanley's skills. I guess I just was not expecting my hair to be as manageable and look as good as it does!
I would recommend Salon Stanley to anyone who needs a skilled and reasonably priced stylist in the UES.
Also, the picture that is on this website of the Salon is outdated. The interior is completely different and way nicer now.
MY FAVORITE PLACE – I’ve been going to Stanley since I moved to the UES about four years ago. In that time he has always given me a great haircut; so much so that he isn’t afraid to tell me what will look good and what won’t. And I trust his judgment completely. So much so that when I moved downtown I still continue to go to the UES for my haircuts. No one else in the city will ever cut my hair as long as Stanley is around. Great place, no complaints.
Amazing haircut at a reasonable price! – The atmosphere and staff were friendly, welcoming, and unpretentious.
Feel free to tell Stanley exactly what you want -- he really listens. But it is perhaps best just to turn yourself over to him and his amazing talent. He definitely knows what he's doing!
I left with an amazing haircut that was full of style. It made me feel 10 lbs lighter!
Fabulous haircut on the UES...without the price of the UES! – In just moving to the city, I was looking for a place to get my hair cut that wasn't expensive. I know, that's hardly possible here in the city, but I knew there had to be some gems out there. Salon Stanley is it!! I am extremely specific about my hair, and one of those girls who are scared to cut it above their shoulders. With the reviews I read about Stanley, I decided to just go and get a new 'do. Stanley took my appointment the same day I called, and I told him I wanted something new. The man is truly an artist and knew exactly what he was doing. He gave me a wash/cut/dry in less than an hour and it looks amazing!! I never knew my thick hair could be that short but look so amazing and NOT frizzy! I will recommend this genius to everyone I know!!! And it was less than $80!!!
Best salon in NYC – I've been going to Stanley for about 3 years and I've never been disappointed. Every cut has been flattering and easy to care for. After my last cut, I went overseas and my hair grew out so well that I didn't have to touch it for 5 months! Stanley creates a personal relationship with his clients. He takes into account what they want and adds his expertise before ever picking up a pair of scissors. The salon is unpretentious and the staff are very friendly. My sister discovered him and now several of us are converts. I'm moving to DC but I'll come back to Stanley to get my hair done. He's absolutely worth the trip.
Great Stylists! – Stanley and Khris are amazing stylists, color, cut and blowdry, I never leave the place disappointed...and I'm very picky!
Great professional haircut/style/color – WHAT MADE THIS SPECIAL IS THAT STANLEY LISTENED TO WHAT I WANTED IN A CUT/HAIRSTYLE/COLOR .
STANLEY THEN OFFERED SOME SUGGESTIONS AND ASSURANCES OF WHAT THE END RESULT WOULD BE BY FOCUSING ON MY NEEDS BUT WITH A PROFESSIONAL STANCE ON WHAT WAS BEST.
THE SHOP WAS CLEAN AND NEAT.
I WAS OFFERED BEVERAGE /TAKE OUT SEVERAL TIMES. IT WAS A VERY HOSPITABLE ENVIRONMENT.
MENA, HIS ASSISTANT, WAS A DELIGHT WITH THE GENTLE WASHING AND MAKING SURE I WAS EQUIPPED WITH MAGAZINES.
I WILL DEFINITELY CONTINUE TO HAVE MY HAIR STYLED AT SALON STANLEY!!
another new york gem – It's really difficult to find a decent hairdresser in this city, let alone a fantastic one. Finally my search has ended. Khris listened to what I wanted and gave me a great haircut. I found out about Khris through a conversation with a girl at my local bar. She was raving about him to her girlfriends. Her hair looked great as well. The service was excellent.
I really have nothing bad to say about the overall feel of the salon, except that they need more Salon Stanleys in the city. I've been all over the city in search of a salon that has a downtown vibe with an uptown devotion to quality and service. Khris superceded my expectations. A definite new york gem.
Great stylist! – I've been looking for a haristylist in the city for the longest time. I think I've finally found the one. Stanley listened to what I needed and gave me an amazing cut. I don't have a lot of time in the morning to dry my hair, so Stanley gave me a great cut that I can just wash and go. He also brightened my face with perfect highlights! I'm definitely going to be a regular!
Salon Stanley is a top notch place! – I was going to my colorist for years, and was reluctant to make a change, but I am so glad that I took a chance on Salon Stanley. I was skeptical of so many great reviews, but after going there, I am now a convert. Stanley and his salon staff Kris and Josey were so professional and talented! He works quickly and he really pays attention to what your exact needs are. My color and cut were designed to suit me perfectly. The lack of pretentiousness in the salon is very refreshing as well. It's no surprise to learn that he grew up learning the business. You can trust Stanley to work magic!
