“From the very comfortable hair washing sinks, the head massage and neck message to the cute cut from Mark M. Everyone in the salon was very nice and when I felt was totally relaxed.”
“This was one of my most expensive NYC salon ventures so far, (appx $350 in total for cut & highlights) & to be honest, it wasn't worth it!”
A complete restorative retreat along bustling Christopher Street..
A lone wicker couch reminds patrons of this spa's seaside theme, but it's a mere spec of sand in an otherwise urban space punctuated by a row of bright red salon chairs. Though the salon occupies the storefront, behind it lies a bi-level spa complete with a pedicure alcove and private treatment rooms. Services cover the basics from massage, skincare, waxing and nails to makeup and sunless tanning for men and women.
Nathalie is absolutely amazing!. Sorry that I didnt write sooner!!! I was in there about a week ago and I had the BEST HAIRCUT EVER from Nathalie!!!!! I love the cut that she did, it was so updated and nice, she is so talented. Not only is she the best stylist but she is hot too!! The salon is GREAT, VERY CLEAN!!! Also I loved the shampoo and head massage. Nathalie is so funny and makes you feel right at home!!!!Cant wait to go again!!! Im going to recommend my friends to see Nathalie! GREAT STYLIST. Keep up the good work!!!!Salon Beach you hired GREAT PEOPLE!!!!
FIRST TIME VISITINNG SALON, I RECEIVED TREATMENT AND SERVICE THAT TO THIS DAY I STILL TALK ABOUT. IT WAS WITHOUT QUIESTION "THE BEST". MY STYLIST, "MIG" GAVE ME A CUT/SYTLE THAT COMPARES TO NO OTHR.
IMMEDIATELY, I WAS PUT AT EASE, AND ENTERTAINED AND FEELING QUITE SPECIAL IS WHAT I INSTANTLY RECALL TODAY, STILL. MIG HAS A VERY SPECIAL WAY WITH CONNECTING TO EVERYONE AND WITHOUT QUESTION, VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND PASSIONATE WITH HIS SKILL. A STYLIST, WHO CAN'T HAVE A BAD DAY - HE DEFINITELY PUTS HIS CLIENTS BEFORE HIMSELF AND YOU WILL FEEL LIKE YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE IN THE ROOM WHEN IT COMES TO THE CONSULTATION. THE CLOSET YOU WILL GET TO A MIRACLE WORKER.
HAPPY&SATISFIED IN THE CITY, 10/2006
Not much has changed. I went to the Beach several times for my hair and nails. Natasha is highly recommended, impeccable work! My friend and I used to see Russ for highlights and was told he packed up and left for another salon (wouldn't tell me where). I saw another stylist but was very unhappy with the way my highlights came out, they were way too red orange. Management acted somewhat indifferently to my problem. The prices seemed higher than I remembered. The cut was good, but it seems like a lot of the talent has left suddenly.
Alot has changed.
I went to the Beach Spa for many years & was very happy- however, they are now under new management and most of the stylists that made the place have been fired. I have not liked any cut I've gotten since (boy, do I wish I could find Victor!!)
The massages, however, are still excellent. Dante is wonderful.
User review by wver. I moved to NY from SF a year ago and was terrified of breaking in a new hair dresser. I decided to try The Beach, on a friends recommendation. When I walked in for my appointment I was greeted by a freindly receptionist. I barely sat down when I was greeted by my stylist who spent 10 minutes chatting with me about what I was looking for. By the end of our chat, we decided to forego my hi-lites, for a new process she had been developing for a while. By the time we were done I left with the best color I had ever had, and a cut to match. All of the stylists that I saw were freindly and professional, but I have to reccomend Jen Slider. She did a great job on my hair and sent me home with some of the best products I've ever used.
Whole ne appearance..
I've lived in the village for ten years and had never noticed the beach salon spa until recently when I walked in thinking it was new to the neighborhood and came to find that the business had been there for 15 years! I had an amazing Color and cut by Jesse, a Master Stylist. Jesse told me that the beach was under new management and that was the reason I hadn't seen it before.
If this is the new look of the beach and with the service I got, I would definately say YES!
Okay, but nothing spectacular....
A veteran of Van Michael Salon in Miami, I scheduled my first NYC salon experience at "The Beach" based on the fact it was Aveda affiliated & advertisments in popular magzines. I arrived 20 min early & was greeted to a salon in the midst of construction. The salon was extremely small & the hair cutting stations were 'squished' up front.
I waited over 45 min, to get my hair cut, as they double booked my appointment. The stylist did spend a considerable amount of time with my highlights, but I wasn't extremely pleased with the color & my haircut was rushed.
This was one of my most expensive NYC salon ventures so far, (appx $350 in total for cut & highlights) & to be honest, it wasn't worth it!! My next appointment will be somewhere top rated; its not worth spending this much money for bottom line crap results.
Unbelievable!!. I am a new fan of Brenda at The Beach! She gave me the perfect cut and color! I know I'll be back
Finally!!. It usually takes me a year to find a good stylist and eyebrow person. I found both at The Beach. Wolf is the best! I love my highlights and he is consistently improving my hair style. I always get compliments after he cuts my hair. Natasha is amazing with my eyebrows!! They even grow back 'neater' than usual. They've spoiled me...
