Color – Specializing in color correction? Please! He cannot even do something as simple as a single process color without screwing it up. Avi is a nice guy, but, has no idea what he is doing. Everyone else on his staff seems as inexperienced as he is. My advice, based on my own experience, is to go somewhere else. This salon will only waste your money and time- and you will end up having to go somewhere else any way to fix his mistakes.
Straightening – He burnt my wives scalp, just like the previous user her hair is falling off by strands. We wake up in the morning and her pillow is covered in hair, and let's not talk about when she combs her hair. We went to a dermatologist who confirmed that he burnt her scalp and totally damaged her hair. And he charged 450 dollars for this!!!!!! He doesn't even give good men haircuts either.,
Bad Japanesse straightening – I got a japanesse straigntening a year ago, and it ws great cheap and not damaging to my hair. This happened on chinatown.
This year however I decided to do it in the neighborhood and I went to Avi's. Bad idea. He totally fried my hair and is falling off. He didn;t wash a part or he applied to muc to a part and totally fried it. It seems like burnt with a match. Are only 2 zones on my hair , the most noticeable ones by the way, and I have lost half of my precious hair in the lapse of 2 days! I am not coming back and telling everyone to stay away from there.
Guys - think twice before going here – Avi is a good guy, and he has cut my hair twice, but just know going in that his idea of styled hair is extremely short. For men, he uses electric hair trimmer rather than scissors, and I walked out of there looking like I was being deployed to Iraq. The first haircut I had with him wasnt bad, but it was short, and I even told him not to go as short this time. He left a little more hair than if he had shaved my head - it's that short. Be warned... And no, I wont be going back. There are a lot of other choices in FiDi.
Better than Madison Ave. – Avi's cut and style is better than the one I got for years on Madison Ave. on the Upper East Side at a salon that charged $200.00 (no color, just cut and style). I am thrilled to have Avi doing my hair. He's a great guy with excellent technique. My daughter came up from D.C. and he cut her hair in an entirely different style (she went from mid-length to short hair). She looks darling, loves it, and despairs that she doesn't live closer. This guy is a gem. You won't be disappointed.
Great Salon – Avi is great, and his staff as well. The quality of work that is done is amazing. The staff is very nice and just spending time there is very relaxing. Avi takes time and does not rush, to make sure you are completely and totally satisfied when you walk out of there. I would def recommend this salon!!!
Nice but slow – Avi is a great guy, I always like his hiarcuts and his color work too. However... Avi, you are so slooooow. C'mon, chop-chop, this is New York, you got to get a little faster! It alsmot feels like you're sleeping. I can't spend 1.5 hours on a haircut, this is getting on my last nerve.
Avi is good but........ – I have been going to this salon for a while. Avi is a lovely guy but it always takes so long to have a color and cut. Staff in the salon seem to come and go very frequently, not only does Avi cut , color and style himself he insists upon washing hair as well rather than leave it to another staff member, this means that clients build up, it has taken me more than 3hrs on some occasions.
I would also question the quality of color products used in the Salon. Color only lasts about two weeks, normally I would get at least four before having to return for a top-up.
Avi is great and I would love to see him do well but my patience is wearing thin and I plan to look for another stylist.
We at the Avi Golan Salon thank you for your voice and value your opinion.We are making improvements with our staff, as for the timing we can only do as much as the hair tells us to. We keep both you and the health of your hair in mind . Our L'Oreal color was voted top 5 in the Country and top 3 in Europe. We carry this line not only because it's one of the best, but because it has a tremendous amount of color shades and the pigment is remarkable.We hope the next time you come in you let us know that your color isn't lasting that will tell us your hair is becoming resistant and we need to improve your color formula. This will save you both frustation as well as money.
