Best haircut in NYC! – I lived in NYC for 6 years and for the first few years before I found Arthur, I was going to one salon after another paying a lot of $ for a haircut and always leaving disappointed. I have long, straight, fine hair and not many people know how to cut it in a way to keep its shape, volume, etc. What usually happened is that 99% of the hairstylists tried to convince me that I need to cut my hair short - and that's the only way that my hair would look good. Well, let's just say that after meeting Arthur, I knew that they were lying - they were just saying that because they themselves either didn't know how to do it or didn't want to take the time to listen to what I wanted. What I found in Arthur is a hairstylist who not only listens to what I want, but someone who will also be very honest with me with his expertise if he feels that I'm way off. Time after time, I always left his salon feeling beautiful and always received countless compliments on my hair...which never used to happen!
After 2 years of having become spoiled by Arthur's haircuts, I have recently moved to VA...and after 6 months, I decided that I'll just make quarterly visits to NYC and get my hair cut! I come to NYC often to visit friends anyways...
Arthur is without a doubt one of the best, if not the best, hairstylists in NYC. I'm just sorry that I dont' live there anymore..
GREAT service, great location etc – i have been a loyal customer for 7 years and am always treated as if i am special.
i am demanding and have no time and Luba and Arthur always accommodate me and my schedule.
The Best Hairdresser in the World – It's a family affair and what a friendly, joyous setting. Newly Renovated Second floor Suite Style Salon that offers the very best in cut, color, styling for the whole family. Love your hair, the Luba way!
Before I found this gem of a Salon, I wandered aimlessly about hairdresser's who would chop off more than I bargained for. Not here. You name the cut, color and style and Luba or her marvelous son Arthur will give you precisely what you wish for with a smile.
Once I found Luba, I didn't need to look anywhere else.
This magnificent duo also repairs botched cuts or colors brilliantly.
GREAT PLACE with a great eye for color and cutting! – i have been going to luba's for 4 years now and i love my hair each and every time i come out of there. the color is always perfect and compliment getting. And the cut is one that looks good that day AND still good 3 months from that day. Its not fussy or overdone - it just looks like you - only better!
Great hours and a very friendly and accomodating staff.
GREAT salon & stylist! – I visited NY on business and needed a haircut while there. I made an appt with Luba but was late for my appt. They were very understanding and Arthur did my hair. He did a great job! Now, I am spoiled by him and can't find another stylist that did my hair like him! I have long hair (mid back) and when he did my hair I never had to do anything with it - once it was dry it looked great with the layers he put in. Now, I am always having to style it or dry it to get the look I want. I am actually contemplating flying back for the weekend to just get my hair cut! Also, the cost of the cut was very affordable.
Best salon in NY – I've been going to Luba Salon for about 4 years now and would never think of going anywhere else to have my hair done. The first time I went, Luba cut my hair and did a great job. I have rather unruly hair and never had good luck with other stylists. Luba listened to my concerns, suggested some things to me, and we agreed on a new style, which looked great! I have gone back ever since and always have had a great experience. This year Arthur has been taking care of my hair, and he has done a wonderful job too! You cannot go wrong here. Both Luba and Arthur are highly skilled professionals. They really listen to you and do what you want - but also can suggest new looks if you want to experiment. I have never had to "re-do" my hair after leaving (which was the case with the other places I've used before, from NYC to London). Luba and Arthur are both warm and friendly and make the whole experience relaxing and fun. If you're unhappy with your current salon, you must try Luba's! If you like your current salon, go to Luba's anyway - you'll love it! And, for NYC, the prices are really reasonable. Go to this salon!
It doesn't get any better than this! – Since my first visit with Arthur several years ago, I have never even thought of letting anyone else touch my hair. Even when I lived quite far away for a couple years, I still traveled back regularly to have him do my hair. As my natural color has changed, Arthur has been able to adapt to always make it look naturally blonde, which is great. And his cuts have gotten better and better over the years. I've completely stopped telling him what I think I want and simply let him do whatever he thinks is going to look best. And he's never done anything less than amazing!
Arthur is amazing!! – I booked an appointment with Arthur after reading reviews here, and was not disappointed. Arthue gave me exactly what I wanted and yet added his own touch to my hair!! I have thick, dark, medium long hair, and I was nervous about getting a cut because I am growing my hair. Arthur listened to me and gave me one of the best haircuts I have had!! And that too without chopping off a big chunk like every other (upscale) salon. Arthur's down-to-earth nature and the salon's reasonable prices are icing on cake! I highly highly recommend this place.
Looking for a great haircut? Go to Luba's Salon! – This is the second time that I have gone to Luba's Salon. After the first time I knew that I couldn't go anywhere else. Arthur and Stanley are great. They make sure you get what you want and that you are completely satisfied. They make the perfect team and you won't be bored because of the friendly and comfortable atmosphere they create. I have gone to many hairdressers in several countries but this was the first time that I got the haircut I've always wanted. They're very flexible even if you are late, you won't go home disappointed. The search for the perfect hair salon is over, Luba's is the answer!
Only a few complaints – Great Cut & Color, no question! However, it set me back about $450 and 4 1/2 hours in the chair bored, hungry & very little hospitality (one cold cup of coffee). Arthur does a terrific job. I guess I just had to be a little pushier about being treated like I was spending the money I spent.
