Best Stylist in Ithaca – As a Cornell undergrad alum and a Cornell grad student, I have been in Ithaca for seven years, and it has taken me the entire seven years to FINALLY find someone that knows how to cut hair!! Nalyn is without a doubt the best and most talented hairstylist in Ithaca, and I can say this without a doubt in my mind after trying several other salons and always leaving disappointed.
I found Nalyn after a particularly terrible experience at a “fancy” new salon close to campus. No one has ever cut my long-layered hair style in less than 45-60 minutes, so after a 20 minute cut at this “fancy” salon, I left unhappy once again and even returned to the stylist that day with a picture in hand of the last good hair cut I had gotten, yet I left near tears. After wasting $55 and most of my day, I decided I had to find someone else. I read a few wonderful reviews about Nalyn, which were only confirmed when I talked to her on the phone told me to head over right then. She spent about a full hour fixing my hair and creating beautiful long layers that everyone has complimented me on. I haven’t been to another stylist since then and even brought my boyfriend in for a cut which no other stylist has been able to come close to.
I really cannot say enough good things about Nalyn, except that if you are looking for an amazing hair cut in Ithaca, head on over to Nalyn!!
Nalyn is a genius! – My husband went to Nalyn when I got tired of cutting his hair and she did an incredible job - on very difficult hair. My daughter went in and got beautiful, long layers. I went in and got amazing layers that have held up really well. I was a hairdresser and have been cutting my family's hair for twenty years because we had never found anyone we really liked. Nalyn is amazing and we won't be going anywhere else.
Nalyn is awesome! – Update: I went in today 3/23/12 for an eyebrow wax and got to talking with Nalyn about my hair and my issues with it looking bland and not emphasizing the natural curl, she looked and it and told me what she would do to it, I immediately asked if she had time now and she did so she got to snipping. She gave me a precision cut and it looks amazing! It brought out the curls that I love and haven't seen in a long time while not taking off on the length (she knows I'm growing it out). I already got a compliment from 2 coworkers and told them exactly where I got it done at Gias! Nalyn is truly amazing, she cares about her customers and isn't afraid to voice her opinion which I appreciate always because I am not a stylist and need guidance! I HIGHLY recommend Gia's Elite Style to anyone who wants an amazing custom cut, wax, eyebrow tint, her prices are great and so is she! I'm now 100% going to Nalyn for all my haircare needs!
I have gone to Nalyn twice to wax my eyebrows and both times she has done an amazing job. She really takes her time and works hard to make them look great. She told me at my last wax about eyelash tinting and after an online search I realized I wanted it. I went yesterday and it was quick, easy and pain-free. My eyelashes look awesome and I don't have to wear mascara at all for 4-6 weeks! I will be going back to her to continue getting my eyebrows and eyelashes done! I highly recommend going to see Nalyn ASAP!
This Place Is Great! – I was a little hesitant walking in. I am a Cornell student who usually just stays local but will now go here all the time. Worth every penny and the extra effort to get there!
A all around – I just got my first hircut by Nalyn at Gia's elite Style and I LOVE it!
She promised I would but when I felt the razor cutter in my hair I told her that never worked well in my hair (in the poast anytime a stylist usedone in my hair it looked thin and scraggly) I learned it is the technique (not always the tool) that makes or breaks the outcome.
She did such an expert job blending my hair, it has more movement and body than it ever has before and looks thick and flowy.
I will definitely be going back to see her again for my next cut (my daughter too).
Thanks - you are the bext!
Favorite Haircut I've Ever Had – I have not had a professional haircut in over a year-I was putting my hair in a ponytail, flipping it over, and cutting in a straight line. I have really thick, rather wavy hair, and I always have loved the look of layers, but nobody has ever been able to give me layers that are as flowy as the ones that Nalyn did. Her use of the razor is exactly what she says-precise. She gave me layers that work with MY hair specifically, even the bangs that she gave me. (Usually I have to straighten or style bangs-these ones just naturally fall really nicely). The profile created by hair at every angle is everything I could want. I am so happy that my mother and I stumbled upon this little shop. Nalyn is amazing and vivacious and will make you feel even more excited than her great haircut already makes you feel.
Gia consistently gives amazing haircuts – I've been going to Gia's Elite Style for about a year and a half. The first time I went, I sat down with my plain long hair, and I couldn't tell her what I wanted. Something new. Shorter. But longer. Layers? Sure. She knew I was completely lost, so talked to me about a fantastic long, layered, wavy cut, and then she gave me that haircut. "You're gonna love it," she promised, and I haven't gone somewhere else since. This evening, I went in (I called half an hour early, but I've also just walked in) ready to go for a more daring, shorter haircut, and I had some pictures to show. She told me what she thought about those options, and how I could tailor them to fit my hair and face better. I have never had such an awesome haircut.
Nalyn is friendly and experienced – Nalyn is experienced at hair and eyebrows. She is very friendly. She has often done me the favor of taking me without an appointment. If she is with another client, you can look in the boutique while you wait, although I don't usually have to wait long. She is very cheerful and makes you feel comfortable. She doesn't keep you long and asks what your preferences are. She does great work with eyebrows. Location is good--close to other shops so you can get your errands done in all one shot.
Absolutely Awesome – Nalyn is a very experienced and an excellent hair stylist
