This isn't a good place. i frequented it for a while but finally came to my senses and quit. It's not worth the money. In my experience, the salon declined over the past year. The haircut is only so-so -- there are better options in this city at the same price (or if you're lucky, for less). Plus they don't treat you well (this too got worse over time), sometimes with courtesy and enthusiasm reminiscent of a DMV worker.
And then there's the late policy. I missed an appointment awhile back without canceling in time and was charged full price. I recognized the business reasons for the policy and was okay with being charged, though the 80 bucks stung. But here's what finally caused me to quit and get a better haircut elsewhere for the same price. On my way to the salon, I told them over the phone that I would be 10-15 minutes late. They responded that the lateness would cut into the 30 minutes allotted to my haircut, and I said OK. But when I arrived, exactly 12 minutes late, they told me -- confrontationally -- that my stylist had left! "She had places to be." And they charged me for the full $80 despite our understanding over the phone just minutes earlier while I rushed to the salon. Why cut somebody's hair when you can fetch the same price by robbing them?
A great haircut and terric staff – I have got a lot of hair and it takes a pro to make it cooperate. Sara knows how to give a great haircut that is stylish but conversative enough for business.
Erica Is In A Class By Herself – I discovered the joys of a really good haircut many, many years ago. I've been to the best salons in San Francisco, Washington DC, NYC, London & Boston. For the past 10 (? maybe more!) years, I've only gone to Erica. She is the very best. You may think that a haircut is a generic service. You might even think that within the high-end niche of luxe salons offering refined masculine atmosphere and pampering perks the hair cutting skills are more less fungible. You would be wrong. Erica is in a class by herself. Plus, she's a really nice, smart, interesting person. The whole experience is like a mini-vacation, AND you emerge with a haircut that will consistently garner spontaneous compliments from the ladies in your life.
"BEST MEN'S SALON IN NYC" – I had the pleasure of getting a haircut with Erica she is amazing I have been to some of the best barbers in nyc she is right up there with the best I got one of the best haircuts ever do not hesitate to see her great atmosphere and she is also very pleasant can't wait to go back !!!!!!!!!!
An ok haircut overall, but expensive and not customized – Since my excellent hairstylist returned home to Tokyo last year, I have encountered a countless number of incomptetent hair cutting charlatans in Manhattan. So a while back I decided to try Erica. Well... She knows how to cut men's hair, how to spot the overall shape and the peculiarities of hair growth patterns -- no question about that. However, when I made a specific request on some trimming that I wanted her to do with shearing scissors, it was clear that she couldn't do that; it was obvious that she had no clue about that particular technique (which was hilarious since the salon positions itself almost as a semi-exclusive enclave for stars and celebrities... )Instead, she cleverly changed the topic and proceeded to lecture me on how to properly dry my hair after taking a shower. Erica, being all about business, alloted only 27 minutes of her precious time to me (by comparison, my Tokyo stylist cut my hair for 45 minutes). The haircut was not bad, but lasted only a week or so and one side turned out to be longer than the other. For $80 or so that I paid, it was not worth it. So, if you can afford to shell $80 every week, you will look good. Otherwise, look for somebody else.
P.S. And.. for beer and scotch, I don't need to go to a hair salon, I can just go to the bar.
Great atmosphere, Great people, Awesome Job, I will go back! – If your a guy that wants a great job done with your hair this is the ONLY place to go. I would say your getting more than your moneys worth here. I was more of a walk-in type of guy, not any more. I'll be calling in for a reservation soon. After Erica looked at me and talked about my hair it was off to the sink for a great wash and scalp massages. Then Erica took off with the scissors. I was very happy with the result and look forward to my next visit. This Is a Great place for a DYNAMITE hair style/cut, sure as sh--! Not your local barber shop! So, So, much better!!! You will be hooked! Go ahead and call they don't bite and you will be happy that you did! Keep up the Great work. What a concept for a New York City establishment to actually be nice to customers. I am so happy I found you. A++++ Men's Salon. Thank you Thank you Thank you.
Citysearch Editorial Profile – A midtown salon for men offers a range of services that spans from the ordinary (haircuts) to the extraordinary (beer rinses).
best "under the radar" salon in ny – for celebrities or people who want private, truly personal service this is the place. Like your own very tiny club. Great haircut, great manicure. No big scene.
Just a place to kick back and remain in style – Erica knows how to style men's hair, bar-none. Her vision of the salon is appealing because it is a refuge in a frenetic-paced city where gentlemen can kick-back, get pampered, and hang out. The attenion to customers' needs is apparent the moment you walk in, and the friendly vibe makes you want to stay. After the results (and some chatter and drinks) and see how great you look, you are ready to make your next appointment and, will no doubt, become a "regular."
Warm comfortable atmoshere and a superb salon experience – I've been following Erica for quite awhile and followed her to her new salon. The warm and inviting color palate makes you feel at home the moment you walk through the door. Then you're greeted with friendly staff and offered a drink, what's not to like? It's been my experience that Erica likes to keep herself current in what's going on in the industry to keep her clientele looking fresh.
