Sandra is AMAZING! – So in all of my 32 years, I've never changed the color of my hair mostly out of fear that I would hate the end result. I had heard about balayage coloring from a friend & decided to be brave and try it.
Upon entering the salon (which has a very relaxing atmosphere - not stuffy at all!) I have to admit I was a bit nervous! Part of me wanted to turn around and walk out. But the friendly staff made me feel very welcome & I relaxed a bit.
As soon as I met Sandra I immediately felt totally at ease & when we discussed what it was that I wanted, any trepidation that I had completely disappeared. I told her I wanted something very natural looking - I didn't want to end up with blond streaks in my hair! She assured me that the balayage treatment would look very natural.
Sandra methodically applied the color to my hair and after several hours she completed the treatment. After drying it & seeing the end result I was soooooo happy with what she had done! I'm so glad that I went through with it. Sandra really is an artist. Not only is she very very talented but she is also a sweetheart...I never felt uncomfortable in her presence.
I would absolutely recommend this salon & Sandra to anyone. Not only is it easy to get to (train station is 2 minute walk away) but everyone in the salon was very friendly & professional.The salon is truly a diamond in the rough.
Extraordinary – Yesterday I traveled from Freehold New Jersey to have a most extraordinary experience. Starting with the friendly welcome upon entering the Salon from Lau to the final outcome. Lance and Ivy have have created an atmosphere that makes you feel as if you are the only one they care about even though its evident there are many other people in the shop that are being treated royally too.
Sandra picked the perfect hair color and applied it with such care and artistic skill, she has a good eye for what suits you the best.
Song not only washed my hair gently, but also gave a delicious shoulder massage.
Lance proceeded to give the best haircut I've had in a long long time. His healing hands seemed to not only cut my damaged hair, but heal it at the same time. He carefully sculpted my hair to suit my face and personality.
Finally Dino artfully applied make up to to enhance and complete the whole picture.
During this time Ivy was meandering through the Salon capturing the magic that was happening with her camera.
To end this experience with a Jin Shin Jyutsu session in the beautiful room that has been set up upstairs is the ultimate!
For this wonderful experience, the travel into the city was definitely worth every moment. I definitely will come back.
Great experience – I had my first appointment at Lance Lappin last week, and I was so impressed with how kind the employees were and how amazing my hair came out. I hadn't highlighted my hair in years and wanted a very natural look, and I felt as though the stylist really listened to me. The color was just what I had in mind and the highlights looked really natural. I also got a cut which was the best I've had in years. Most importantly, everyone (including the Owners) made me feel at home and could not have been nicer. Overall I had a great experience and my hair came out unbelievable. I will definitely be going back!
Magnifique!!!! – I'm a mom who has a child recently diagnosed with cancer. Two colleagues decided to give me "a moment to myself" and splurged on haircolor and a haircut. This was such a relaxing, energizing and compassionate experience that though out of my budget I will save my pennies and go back for more!
Excellent staff and so attentive and compassionate I can not say enough good things about them.
Ask for Angela – I have been going to Lance Lappin since 2005 and on the few occassions when I have tried to go to a different salon that is closer to me, I've been disappointed. Lance Lappin has definitely spoiled me, they always do an amazing job and if you are going to color your hair definitely ask for Angela, she is the best stylist I've ever had color my hair, she gets the color perfect, and I'm really picky!!
They are all really friendly, always asking if you want tea, coffee, wine, snacks while you are being beautified. I usually just have a glass of water but its nice to know they care :)
Reasonably priced for Manhattan
Lance is an artist and a great human being! – I would travel to get to this salon, and I do...from the upper West Side. It's a treat to go to a salon that is laid back, but very aesthetically pleasing, and it's a treat to go to a salon without ANY anxiety about whether you're going to get a cut you like or not: IT'S ALWAYS A GREAT CUT!
In addition, they have other great services, including color.
And before or after your visit to the salon, there are wonderful cafes and restaurants in the area, and you can ask anyone at the salon for recommendations!
Awesome! – This is one of my favorite places to go to. My hair always gets the utmost attention. The stylists at this salon take the time to listen to what I want and give me lots of feedback. This is the only salon that I trust with my hair. Kiyo has been doing my Japanese straightening for over 4 years, he is attentive to detail and my hair looks great after. Galina is an amazing colorist and took me through many hair color transformations that were appropriate for my skin tone. I also get great cuts from Nicole and Chester who never seem to disappoint. This place is Tribecas hidden gem.
great haircut; great people – I've been going to see Lance about every five weeks for the past five years now, and enjoy every minute of my time there. Lance is very gifted. He knew just what to do with my formerly boring hair the moment he saw it. I'll never forget how great it was to get that first haircut, and every cut since then has been just right -- I get compliments all the time.
Visiting the salon is a relaxing and revitalizing experience from the moment you walk in the door. The staff are warm and welcoming. I'm not a trendsetter, club kid or fashionista (and I'm several years past being over the hill), but I always feel relaxed and right at home. I recommend Lance and his salon highly. You will come away refreshed, and with a haircut that is just right for you, whoever you are.
Fantastic Salon and Highlights! – I had my first trip to Lance Lappin Salon and I am so pleased with my hair and the experience at the salon. I met Sandra Vasilescu a year ago at another salon -- she does AMAZING hair and is warm and friendly and takes time to make sure she gets to know you and your lifestyle. She has restored my hair back to health and gives it that perfect sun-kissed natural look by doing balayage highlights.
My experience at the Lance Lappin Salon was much the same. From the person that answered the phone to help me find the location (multiple times!) to my friendly welcome from Lance himself. It was very relaxing and a fantastic experience! -- I look forward to my next appointment!!
Incredibly Talented Stylists/Exceptionally Friendly Staff – My mother, my brother my aunt and myself have all been going to Lance for hair cuts and Ivy for color for over a decade - and once you go to the Lance Lappin salon, you will never want to go anywhere else. Lance and Ivy are like the dream team of hair. We all have very different hair and very different personalities, yet Lance gives us all spectacular cuts and, shapes our hair to bring out something about our characters. He has a knack for creating a cut that is always hip, flattering, and makes you look your most beautiful. I always walk out of the salon looking and feeling great. I often feel better after getting my haircut than after going to yoga or therapy!
The salon has a cozy, intimate atmosphere that you won't find in most places - probably since Lance, Ivy and the rest of staff are friendly, funny and interesting people who love what they do.
My mother recently switched to Sandra after Ivy recently left the salon, and she did an incredible job with her color.
