The place is great and the staff is great. Customer service there is wonderful and Noelle is such a nice person! I love it!
Noelle has been cutting my hair for the past 8 years. The fact that I followed her to Loft 26 and have continued with her despite moving out of state is a testament to what a great stylist she is. She knows her clients, their needs and is not afraid to voice an opinion to an occasional outlandish request [Noelle - you know what I'm talking about ;) ]
The cut is PERFECT each and every time and my hair grows out beautifully. I am yet to have a - "I need a haircut" - look. I get compliments even 6 months later and the only reason I go back is either because I am bored of the look or the weight of my hair gets to me.
And oh..Noelle is so much fun to chat. Its never a dull moment with her. Loft 26 is a pretty cool place. Folks who work there are friendly, professional and the fact that they serve complimentary mimosas on weekends is definitely a bonus.
No one touches my color but Loren Basis. Period. – To say that I am extremely particular about my color is the understatement of the century. Loren blessed my color about 5 years ago and I've never looked back. Passing strangers literally grab me by the arm to ask who does my highlights. I have sent every friend I have to her and now we are all Loren junkies! I haven't lived in NY for over 4 years now and I still drive over 3 hours from Maryland to get my fix of Loren's gift. My natural color is brunette, but I like to live my life as a beachy blonde. My highlights are tasteful, classy, and bombshell gorgeous! Loren never compromises the health of my hair in the process either. I have had too many horrible memories of colorists deep frying my hair; not to mention, everytime I went for a touch up, I just kept getting lighter and lighter. They did not want to take the time and meticulous effort needed to preserve my color without over processing.
In addition, with Loren, I can let my roots go for months and never have a blunt line of root growth. They grow out so naturally and flawlessy, its rather incredible. Loren is professional, a pleasure to be around, and second to NONE in her trade. I don't care what anyone says, your hair is your best accessory and it can make or break you; don't ever comprimise that: Loren Basis, period.
Love, Love, Love Loft 26!!! – I absolutely adore Loft 26! It's such a beautiful space, the staff is super talented and friendly, and my hair has never looked better. I'm super picky when it comes to hair salons and have tried several in the City. It's hard to find a place that checks all the boxes. Some places are great for cuts, others for color, others for style...lots of places have stressful atmospheres or lots of staff turnover...but Loft 26 is the total package. It's a one stop shop for all your beauty needs! I see Stacey and Loren and both ladies are beyond talented. In addition, they are experts when it comes to reading their clients and catering to their individual needs. For example, I'm from the South and I love big, curly hair and Stacey seriously spends at least 30 minutes after a cut setting my hair in rollers or curling it with a curling iron and shaping it to perfection. You get the sense that they truly care about their clients as friends, not just customers. Every time I go I leave feeling pampered, gorgeous and perfectly happy. If you're looking for a new salon (or thinking about cheating on your current stylist) look no further than Loft 26!!!
John Gerard Griffith is the BEST! – Frizzy curls?! Yup, got'em! I used the blow drier, flat iron, and tons of straightening balm each and every time I did my hair. The result was split ends that went to the root, and hair that just stopped growing. I booked an appointment with John thinking it was just going to be my once a year thing, on the contrary! John explained to me exactly what I was doing wrong, and walked me through the correct maintenance of my hair down to the products I should be using. I've had two Keratin Coppola treatments with him, a Phyto Hair Treatment, and two haircuts in less than a year. He's helped me to appreciate and LOVE my hair, and the best part is that the frizz is gone and it's growing again. My hair's NEVER looked this good! Thanks, John!
great haircut, great products! – I have curly and kind of frizzy hair. I used to get lifebooker, groupon, and gilt city deals and go to different places to cut, condition, and blow-dry my hair. I found Loft 26 through Lifebooker. Since then I go to cut my hair only there.
John is great! My curls never looked more sophisticated. I never liked to blow-dry my hair. Most of the salons I have been to, use too much heat. I was always worried about the damage. John gives me the most gentle blow- dry I have ever experienced, and he never rushes it. + their products are amazing.
I am very happy I found that place!
Great for curly hair! – Loft 26 is true to its name. The salon is in a beautiful airy loft space that, even on Saturdays when it's really busy, still feels very spacious. I've been going to the salon for a few years now and have always found the staff friendly and professional. Also, this may seem like a minor detail but the hair washing sinks are amazing. They are designed to completely support your head so you don't strain your neck during the wash.
I followed my stylist Noelle here from her previous salon. Noelle was recommended to me by a friend as a great stylist for curly hair. I haven't been disappointed! About a year ago I was ready for a change and Noelle suggested a short style. She took my lifestyle into consideration (I wanted something quick and low maintenance) and gave me a cut that looks great with very little effort on my part. She's the first stylist I've had who I felt took not only my hair but my personality into consideration when cutting my hair.
Noelle is the best! – I've been going to Noelle for several years and followed her here from another salon, and can't say enough about her. Amazing skills, always gives me exactly what I want, and my hair is curly and probably not the easiest to cut. She is the only person I've ever been to who consistently gives me great cuts. The salon is beautiful too, very relaxing, the sink chairs are the best!
15 years and he's never let me down! – Jon Gerard of Loft 26, has been styling my hair for over 15 years. I have had every cut and color imaginable -- always looking for that edge and a fresh look. The reason Jon has remained my "go-to" guy is that he gets me. He is able to interpret my wishes into signature looks for my personality. I trust him without hesitation and usually leave the final outcome completely to his judgement. Of course, it certainly helps that he is TALENTED, professional, warm and open to new ideas and possibilities. So check him out at Loft 26. You won't be sorry.
Great Hair Cut and Blow Dry – I recently purchase a gilt coupon for a hair cut and blow out at Loft 26,and let me tell you I was very impressed with the stylist Angie and the location.
Angie listened to my concerns and needs, end result the best hair cut I have had in years, she very attentive and sweet and I must say her blow out was fabulous!!!!
I booked another appointment before I left.
Thanks Angie !!! See you soon
