Terrible Haircut – I went for a simple haircut and ended up with the worst hair I've ever seen. It doesn't even look like a haircut as much as something I would do to myself if I went crazy with a pair of scissors. Even styled it looked terrible and it didn't seem like Antonio cared. It was nothing like what I asked for and he didn't even seem to listen to me when I described what I wanted. It might have been a decent haircut for a 50 year old professional woman but I'm 30 and it ages me about twenty years. From the moment I got there, I felt like I was just another client and the whole thing took about 20-minutes (for $70!). I don't tend to get upset about things like this but I went in there with good hair and walked out with a mess that I'll have to deal with for at least three months (until it grows into something else). Even my husband was appalled (and he barely notices things like this).
Great foil and cut with David!!! – I had a wonderful experience at this salon. I came in with that $85 student coupon. David cut my thick, wavy hair into a low maintaince style, gave me perfect honye blond highlights and I loved the fact that he wasn't too chatty. He also flat ironed my hair at no extra charge!!! He is a very talented stylist whom you can trust from the moment you meet him.
Best Salon Experience Yet! – I heard about this salon from a friend a few month back but just recently made the appointment as I do not like change when it comes to my hairstylist. My appointment was with David Romano and I cannot rave enough about what a wonderful job he did. He listened to what I wanted and gave me just that. The cut, color, and style were amazing. Not awkward at all and a great "Spa" experience. He has made me a client for life!! Such a comfortable salon with that "fancy feel". All the magazines and newpaper review clippings they have posted around the salon speak for themselves.
Great highlights, great cut, great people, great place! – Who doesn't want to find a great place to get a highlight / haircut from people who you can trust to do an amazing job?? I went for the first time to see David at Studio for Hair and was beyond impressed. When I first sat down, we had a conversation about what I wanted to do with my hair. I immediately asked for his advice, and he gave me two great options. By the way he explained the positive aspects of both cuts, I could easily tell he knew what he was talking about and was actually thinking about the best style for me, not just the style that he knew how to do. Although both options sounded great, I went with the shorter choice (risky at a new place!) and it turned out amazing!! He wasn't at all pushy about products, but made a great recommendation when I asked him for one. I had a great experience at Studio for Hair and will definitely be going back (and tell my friends)!!!
Service not stellar, but skill is good – My friend and I went there because we had a coupon for a $20 cut. It was a good cut, meaning it looked pretty and was flattering to my face shape, but he cut off half an inch more than I wanted him to. He also didn't schedule enough time for both cuts so I ended up blowdrying my own hair while he cut my friend's hair. I guess you get what you pay for...
Best hair cut ever! – My friend told me to go to Studio for Hair, even though it was kind of far from where I live. Coincidentally I got the same hair stylist as her (David) and boy am I glad! I was in and out in 20 mins flat, with the best hair cut I have ever received! He listened to everything I said, and took time to play with my hair and see what it did. Usually when I go to salon and I tell them that I want something low maitnence, I find myself leaving with a cut that needs five products and 20 minutes of blowdrying. But David listened and left me with a hair cut that needed no products and 3 minutes of blowdrying time! Plus the price is affordable! You should check it out!!
Best Salon Ever!! Awsome staff and very talented! – Somone referred me to David Romano. Not only did he do a an awsome job, but he did better than what I pictured and described for my color and cut. Very talented and an awsome stylist. Makes the whole process fun. All staff are great too. Highly recommended!!!!!!
Fabulous! – I was referred to Antonio for a color "fix"....I couldn't be happier! After years of hoping someone could get it right based on my description, Antonio did it! You can't imagine the compliments I get now... And Antonio has a personality, thank God...how many times do you have a hair dresser who thinks he's better than everyone??? He's funny and makes the time go by, and he's EXCELLENT at what he does! I would put him up against anyone in this city any day of the week! (And his cuts are great too!)
User review by jacquelynhope – I have been going to Antonio Vitale (co-owner) since he opened this salon. Strangers literally stop me on the street and ask me where I get my hair done. I'd never go anywhere else!!
