She never gets the appointments right, I always go there and they tell me my appointment is a t a different time.
She can never get my name right, its really not that hard to remember.
Nelly acts like she knows everything but she did absolutely nothing for my hair.
My friend went in for a haircut as well and she cut it very short on her after telling her she didnt want it cut short and just wanted a trim.
I will never go there again and I would not recommend this to anyone.
Great service, great hairstyle! – I was really impressed with this salon. Andrew was great in creating the perfect updo for my wedding. I was visiting from Australia and being married in New York. On the day of the wedding, I showed Andrew some pics of the style I wanted and he transformed my hair into exactly what I wanted, efficiently and without fuss. I really appreciated his professional manner, and was really happy with the whole experience. Everyone loved my hair too which was great!
I highly recommend this hair salon!
This is by far the BEST hair salon in Downtown Manhattan!! – Nelly is a very sweet, nice and welcoming lady; she makes you feel at home from the moment you arrive.
I personally LOVE a particular hair professional from this salon, his name is Enrique.
I was introduced to Enrique last summer. When I meet Enrique, my hair was very damaged and short.
I can honestly say Enrique was my God’s gift…why? Not only did he make me feel extremely welcome, he said to me “don’t worry you will have your hair back” and boy did he keep his promise. By December my hair was showing a tremendous improvement, now my hair is healthier, stronger and shiner than ever and I have Enrique to thank for this improvement. If you are ever in the area call them and check him out and tell him to apply his amazing conditioner same is prepared by him. God knows what it has in it but it transformers the hair overnight!! Once my coworkers started seeing how much my hair improved they have checked him out and they all feel the same way. I tell him he has magic hands and we all agree.
This hair salon provides you with excellent customer service, good prices and excellent results.
Excellent Spot – I have gone to Nelly's at least ten times over the last 3-4 years. She is an amazing and kind woman, who is always a pleasure to deal with. The staff is accommodating and patient, with none of the high end-salon attitude. (Even though its high-end service in an upscale area.) Great location, except for parking access, near major train lines and businesses, and excellent service. I highly recommend Nelly's salon to everyone I know in NYC.
*One of Nelly's employees - Pilar, does great work!
Best Salon Downtown! – I have been going to Nelly's since 2002. I had a regular salon in the WTC, but after 9/11 had to find another salon. I worked across the street from Nelly's and went in for a haircut, and loved it. The atmosphere is very friendly. I now go for cut and color and would not go anywhere else. I now work out on Long Island, and still only go to Nelly's in Manhattan. Anyone who is in the Financial District or in Battery Park should certainly make Nelly's their salon.
Ol' Reliable – I have found it difficult to find a place that consistently gets my haircut the way that I like it, that was until I found Nellys. After some misadventures with other area stylists I tried Nellys on chance and havent looked back for over 2 years. I always leave happy and the price is exactly right; I don?t have a lot of hair so for me to pay more than $20 for a haircut is excessive. I have recommended other gentlemen coworkers to Nellys and everyone has left happy. I wholeheartedly recommend this salon.
Great Convenient Spot with Accomodating Staff! – I went to Nelly's Salon on the recommendation of a friend who had finally found a salon where she felt welcomed and satisfied. I had a great experience. I'm not exactly the fussy type who walks in with an exact image of each haircut, but I do want my hair style to look good. Usually I hate the arrogant attitudes of downtown salons. My stylist was patient and helpful, and considerate of my "paranoia" about losing to many inches, and even suggested a razor cut on my ends, which I loved! I've been to Nelly's twice, and I really don't see myself going anywhere else for awhile. The cut was affordable, and Nelly herself was delightful. The water street location was perfect for me after work, and the salon was nicely appointed. Would definitely recommend to others.
A great little salon! – I have been going to Nelly's for years and have had always had a great experience there! They have done a great job cutting my curly hair and helping me choose a style that will allow me to alternate between wearing my hair straight or curly. Curly hair girls know this is not a small feat! They also do an excellent job with blow-outs and I have never had to worry about painful tugging or frizzed out hair!
I have had highlights done several times and have always been pleased with how attentive staff have been to ensure that my color is just right or that they are using the proper product for my hair type.
I have also always had a good experience with their manis and pedis (have no idea what a reviewer meant about bad facilities!). I have brought various co-workers with me for an after -work mani and have never heard any complaints. In fact, many of them have become clients over the years! Overall, it's a great little salon run by kind, accommodating and professional staff!
Great Blowout! – Peter does a fantastic blowout taking my hair from frizzy and weird to straight and gorgeous in a flash. I live and work in the neighborhood and count on him to keep me looking professional (when you work at home it's easy to fall into the pony tail and sweats thing). I have confidence that Peter will have me arriving at meetings looking -- and after a friendly conversation -- feeling great. He also is extremely good natured about last minute appointments and does his best to oblige.
Horrible! Horrible! Horrible! – I wouldn't recommend it. I went in for a simple haircut.....1/4 inch off a REALLY basic shorter style and came out looking like I had my haircut with a lawnmover....a choppy, uneven, short MESS!!! Stay Away! It will take me atleast two months to grow it back to where it was in order to just even back up! Will have to wear a bag over my head 'til the holidays...
How these people even got their haircutting certifications is a mystery!
