I've been going to Melissa for almost 6 years, and she did not show up for an appointment I had, which was booked 2 months in advance I called, texted, emailed, and NOTHING. She contacted me a week after my appointment saying she was sorry and had a breakdown. I had no choice to go to someone else to get my maintenance, since she left me hanging - so I told her that, and I still have not heard back from her - ONE MONTH LATER. I guess she is upset I HAD to go to someone else because of her? She is not trustworthy any longer and I def. recommend NOT using her. How can you run a business like this? Feel free to email me, I will forward on her email.
AMAZING HAIR! Super Gentle! Great Service! – I am a young girl with extremely fine, thin hair. I have tried various hair extension methods including SoCap and Tressallure. I had issues with cost and damage with other methods.
After deciding that I had had enough with the extensive damage from fusion extensions, I did a massive search and came across VIP Lifestyle hair. I have been going to Melissa for over a year now. The method she uses, Hairlocs, is super gentle and unobtrusive. The quality of the hair is excellent and she is a very talented extensionist. She takes her time and is very conscientious. I don't know what I would have done without her!
Melissa is extremely reasonably priced for NYC and really cares about her clients!
FANTASTIC SERVICE, PHENOMENAL PRODUCT, AFFORDABLE PRICES!!! – I am cursed with baby fine, thin hair (my ponytail is like a shoestring) and have always dreamed of having long luxurious hair, but was afraid of the potential damage that extensions could cause to what little hair I have. I did extensive research on the various methods available (glue/bonding vs. link vs. sew) and ?interviewed' those salons/individuals offering such services (NY, NJ, CA, etc.), but most came across as if they were trying to 'sell' me something, and in many cases I actually knew more about the products/methods than they did. Then I spoke with Melissa at VIP Lifestyle Hair, and could tell instantly that she was not only passionate about her product (having worn it herself) but extremely knowledgeable and talented. Needless to say, I immediately booked a consultation and had a full head of Locs within two weeks. The Hairlocs product is definitely the best available (even though it?s not the most expensive), and Melissa is a true expert. She will match your texture and color flawlessly (I was in between shades, so she had a custom color done from my hair sample), and she takes extreme care when attaching each and every strand. Her application is so seamless that no one will ever be able to tell you are wearing extensions! Quality hair extensions aren?t cheap (nor should they be), but her prices are hands down the absolute most affordable (especially considering how much time and effort she puts into all of her clients). I have been wearing the same hair for almost a year now and have been going to Melissa religiously for maintenances. My real hair is in better condition now than before the extensions (no damage whatsoever), and my extensions look as good, if not better, than they did on the first day I got them. If you are thinking about getting extensions, go to Melissa at VIP Lifestyle Hair for a consultation, you will not be disappointed!!!
AMAZING HAIR!!! IF YOU WANT EXTENSIONS, THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO! – About two years ago I decided to grow out my very short hair cut. I felt the best way was to get extensions. I paid big $$$ and went to a very nice salon on Madison Ave. I was promised the extensions wouldn't cause any harm to my hair...OMG!!! It was awful taking them out and I lost so much hair! I was then stuck with trying to grow out thin short hair. That's when I stumbled across VIP Lifestyle Hair.
I'm about to get my extensions done for the third time. The cost is amazing and the hair is flawless. Nobody ever knows I have extensions and I get compliments all the time. (I feel so lucky that I found Melissa that I always tell everyone I have extensions. Let's share the love people!) The hair is matched perfectly to your color and this technique really causes NO damage to your natural hair. If you have ever been curious about getting hair extensions please contact VIP Lifestyle Hair. You won't find anyone as great and for such a great price!
Amazing Service for a Fraction of the Cost! – Last December (2007) I went to get my first set of extensions. They were the knock off version of the Hair Locks. As soon as that woman, who is based in CT, finished, I knew something was wrong. I immediately started looking for a new salon to do my extensions. I cam across VIP Hairstyles online and gave them a call. Not only was VIP super sympathetic to my bad extensions job, but they took the time to go over what exactly was done wrong and how it could be fixed. They reassured me that it was fixable and not to worry. I ordered more hair, paid for the real Hair Locks links and less than a week later, had my brand new extensions in place. VIP was conveniently located and extremely affordable. Where other salons charge thousands of dollars for little service, VIP has varying options for people who can't afford to pay high prices. Just because they are cheaper than other competitors, does NOT mean that they are subpar. VIP is always very flexible for people who can come in at non conventional hours. Easily located in the heart of NYC, near Herald Square - its so easy to get to for most people.
For someone with thinning hair, extensions are not a vanity thing, for me its the difference between low self esteem and an air of confidence. VIP was able to return that confidence to me.
I would highly recommend anyone looking at ahir extensions to go with Hair Locks since they are the safest way to add length and volume without the damage. And I would encourage everyone to check out VIP Hairstyles - the most convenient salon for hair extensions and by far, the most superior service in NYC.
Wow! It's about time these extensions start treating me Properly! – OK Ladies, My sister and I both wear extensions; We started out with GLUE- OMG- "Don't Do It!", those SALON Witches took both of us for a very painful long ride. Acetone, should only be used to take paint off of walls! We didn't need extra hair but we NEEDED IT, Ya know... So after over paying for this certain torture, GOD SENT we got a FLYER FOR VIP Life Style Hair, and at this point we needed the hair ya know the glue pulled or broke a lot of it off during Removal! and ladies a lil is a lot. So we find and meet with VIP who happens to be more affordable than the Glu...(message!) The application was so gentle, her fingers you don't feel them.. and the extensions you DONT feel them! I found my hair grew a lot with them on, and then she even got a nice promo on our maintenances... Wow was mom happy our hair habit didn't have to break the bank or shed tears anymore! We love our Extension Lady she is so awesome she repaired our hair as well as saved us from GLUE HELL.
