Best Quality Salon EVER – I was referred to the Minardi Salon by a friend and was told that i would not be dissapointed....He was absolutely right. From the moment i walked into the salon, everyone was very friendly and nice and asked if i wanted anything to drink etc...My colorist, Tohmas Elmluhd, did such an amazing job that the compliments are still coming. I walked in a blond and he turned me into a gorgeous red with copper low lights just how i wanted. The color was PERFECT and came out exactly as i asked. His assistant Tatyana, was a great help and super nice. Laura Melishen cut my hair and did an amazing precise job..she gave me just the right cut for my face and cut my bangs to perfection...
Hands down the best salon I ever been to and so worth it!!!
gorgeous color! – About a year ago, I had made the huuuge mistake of trying to dye my hair by myself. I was sick of going all of the way home to find the right colorist and figured that it wouldn't be that hard. Yeah right! I ended up with a blonde/orangey mess for hair and needed a quick fix.
Victoria Natapov not only fixed my do-it-myself awful color but she made my hair come alive again. She achieved exactly what I had been trying to do for years with other stylists that hadn't been successful. I have finally found the perfect place in the city that is convenient and the people are knowledgeable. Not only is Victoria a hair color genius, she works magic too! I get complements on my hair color everywhere I go.
Thank you Victoria and Minardi Salon!
unbelievable service and experience – i have been going to carmine and beth minardi's salon for over 12 years. i was first introduced to carmine and beth through my then boss, designer nicole miller- and i have never left their trusted hands!
the entire staff is friendly and experienced. i personally go to carmine for AMAZING cuts. he transforms your hair. he brings new life into my thin, fine hair and every time i leave his chair i feel like a new woman- forget therapy- just go spoil yourself with a cut by carmine. he and beth run a professional, friendly- but very chic new york salon- everything you would expect from a perfect salon- and a manhattan salon.
for color i regularly see tohmas elmlund. wow! he transformed by over blonde colored hair back to a sophisticated blonde with darker low lights. he is a master of color along with beth. tohmas is also a painter and you can see from his results he is a true 'artist' of hair color. i can't imagine now trusting my color to anyone else. tohmas also listens to me if i feel like going a bit more blonde for summer or a bit deeper for winter- he applies his experience and expertise to what he thinks is best for my skin color. he's a true gentleman and professional.
don't forget john james, rebecca and the rest of the staff.
i feel comfortable going to any staff member there.
i regularly go for blowouts and now they offer wonderful pedicures and manicures from genius yuko. very private and all organic.
fabulous salon – Going to Minardi salon is truly a wonderful experience. You take the elevator up to the 5th floor and enter a special environment where everyone is friendly and helpful. I have been having my haircut at Minardi's for over eight years. There has not been one time when I have not been happy with either my haircut or the service that I have received. I would never think of going anywhere else. Sincerely, Sherry Marks
40 years of coloring my hair i finally found the right color – i had bright red hair which i loved TOHMAS created it
but i needed a change i felt: blondes have more fun
so 6 months later TOHMAS made me the most beautiful blonde.. Every step of the way each color was perfect
he did it in steps so that he didn't damage my hair.
He's a very nice and thoughtful colorist.
I would recommend him to any man or woman of any age.
Gion rocks – I just had my hair colored by Gion last week. NEVER has my color looked this good. He is a keeper! He spent a lot of time and corrected my tricolor hair! I am thrilled to have found him.
Best color/cut in NYC – I have been going to Minardi for years. I am a reporter who has worked at NY1 and now at News 12 and MSG plus and I don't have the luxury of "taking chances" with my cut and color. It has to be right every time or else I'm in trouble on air. Paula is a genius at making my blond highlights so bold and bright, and yet so incredibly natural. And Stephen Wang has literally created me a signature look for on air that many viewers have come to call my "angular bob." Every time I go out I get the same two questions "Where do you get your hair done" and "Do you get your hair highlighted? I love the color but you can't even tell it's highlights." PS- My cut is on the website if you want to check it out. It's a blond "posh-esque" angular bob and my face is turned in a way where one of my eyes is covered with my hair.
John James, Hair Stylist Extraordinaire – Minardi is a special place due to the incredible professionals who work there. John James is the reason I became a customer of the Minardi Salon and I am thrilled he found a home there a number of years ago. You arrive and are greeted by the wonderful front desk reception staff. The assistants are also terrific as is the delicious complimentary white wine and various beverages they kindly offer.
John James is the consummate professional. He knows hair and is an excellent listener. A winning combination. Explain to John James your specific hair problems,thoughts, questions and he will discuss numerous ways to create the desired look you might be after. There is nothing John James cannot do. As a veteran in the business for at least 15 years, you will leave his chair looking like yourself only 10 times better!
Best color ever. – I can't say enough about Minardi Salon. First off, the customer service is amazing. Everyone --- from the reception staff to Beth and Carmine Minardi -- goes out of their way to make you feel at home. It also a very guy friendly salon.
Beth is nothing short of amazing. She is friendly, funny and is truly a master at her craft. While Beth chatted about surfing, she and her talented and amazing assistant Angela transformed my graying brown hair into a super cool blonde that was both hip and classic. I wish I could bottle how I felt when I walked out of Minardi that day because I felt as hot as Brad Pitt.
Best hair color in New York – Before I found Minardi, I had a string of horrific experiences -- so bad that my daughter once wrote a letter to Santa asking him to bring her mother a pretty hair color -- and she read it to her entire first grade class! I love my hair again. I found Beth after reading that she'd done Renee Russo's red for The Thomas Crowne Affair. I was with her for years. Then because I had to change my schedule, I tried Paula and she's fabulous too. Stephen does my cuts and I love him. One of the things I really appreciate about this salon is the level of service. Everybody who works at Minardi is nice. And everybody's talented -- hair, nails, waxing. I wouldn't go anywhere else. If your hair affects the way you feel about yourself, this is the place to come.
