I love this salon – Karuna is fabulous! I got the best hair cut ever by her, got too many compliments and im just loving my new look.
They have a really friendly staff, reasonable prices and great atmosphere.
I'll definitely be back for my next haircut
It'll rock your world! – I LOVE Karuna and Shampoo Avenue B! Karuna was recommended to me by a friend and no one's touched my hair color since! After years of wasting my time and money with hairdressers who are afraid of color I finally found my hair genius. I have bright magenta chunky highlights throughout my hair and I absolutely love it. Karuna was the first to do exactly what I wanted...give me super bright, bold color, as far away from "natural" as possible. I mean, I was born with natural so why would I bother? She's amazing with choosing the placement and density of the highlights and a true artist at mixing colors. On top of it, she's a super cool chick and a sweetheart! Oh yeah, the salon has a great laid-back vibe and the DJ is amazing!
Cool New Find – This was a great place to get a glass of wine during evening hours while getting a haircut after work. Convenient and fun.
Great New Stylist - Janaan – The stylist I have known for years has just moved here from Mudhoney. She is fantastic and I will follow her wherever she goes. She has got me through 2 major changes in style. She is professional, creative, and endlessly optimistic. I also come away feeling restored. The salon was calm, efficient and had great music.
Best Rock & Roll Salon Ever!! – I went to Shampoo for the 2nd time a couple of weeks ago and I am not disappointed that I decided to go back. Harley did both my cut and color and he is truly an artist. He takes his time and walks you through everything he is going to do for you.
The other stylists are also very nice and based on the work that I was able to see them perform they are amazing as well. I would love to try Domini the next time I am there, she truly has a rock & roll vibe going.
Thanks for making me feel awesome!
Jenny changed my life – My boyfriend went into shampoo to get a cut (that he really needed) and came home looking F-ing HOT! I had never seen such a detailed haircut on a man. It had tons of texture and it still looks good. It looks especially good after we have quality time ;-)
But, it also looks amazing when he's all clean and groomed for work. Jenny gave my man an awesome cut and I can't wait to come in and get mine.
My new favorite salon – I found the salon through citysearch and I was by far satisfied with the result. I made an appointment with Melissa who is very professional, kind, and will listen to what you want. She did an amazing job cutting my hair, it looked awesome! She used a straight razor in combination with shears which I have not seen before. Hands down the best salon in the area.
Great one to try – The first salon I tried in New York and was really pleased with the results, I like the option of doing something abit different with my hair so wanted to try these guys.
Harley did my hair and really I just wanted to make sure for my first time there that he understood my hair and cut how I asked. I have thick curly hair that's quite short so the layers need to be perfect. He did everything that asked, so i'll be going back for a cut and colour next time.
Ultimately its the cut the matters and it was good, but he didn't dry my hair very well, maybe that's a curly hair thing- its always better when you do it yourself.
Also..is it just me?- but i like to be offered a cup of coffee or tea and i didnt get one :-(
All Good – The first time I went to Shampoo I originally went for a cut with Harley, but my old colorist messed up my color and my roots were a bright red. I asked if they could correct that. I walked out with a fabulous cut and a beautiful chestnut brown color. I have gone back several times and have used Daniel and Domini as well as Harley. They are all amazing. You can't get a bad cut or color in this place. The staff is warm and welcoming and they really listen. I should mention that I have curly hair and they really know how to cut curls. Go and Enjoy!
the best salon i've been to – shampoo is the best salon i've ever been to, and i have been to a lot of both high-end and moderate ones in several cities. harley, my stylist and the owner, was incredibly attentive - he really took his time and made sure that i would look fabulous when i left. i felt like my satisfaction was the most important thing, and that was refreshing. totally go there, it's awesome.
