NICHOLAS MODLIN, for color, is by far the BEST in the industry... I've been going to him for over 20 years. My job in TV requires an exceptional color job and you can't get better than Nicholas.
As for the cut... stylist, SHAN, is unsurpassed in quality, what's "in" and what looks best on me.... I will NOT trust my hair to anyone else but the dynamic duo of Shan and Nicholas.
It is that time of year again, and moving to NY from LA, I needed to find a salon immediately. With a color correction that was mandatory before the holidays, Anne Marie not only was sweet but did an amazing job on my color. She took my hair from this horrible, dark bland color; to a nice chocolate brown with highlights. I would recommend anyone to go here. The staff was friendly, and Anne Marie had me out in a timely manner. I am so happy with my mane, and feel very confident. If you have any special plans in NYC, I highly recommend that you go here!
Do NOT believe the hype about this salon. The colorist (Ann Marie) is a very dedicated and kind person -- and she took me in after my head was mis-colored by another salon and seemed to be very nurturing -- but she turned my head multiple streaks of different shades, which is the exact opposite of what I asked for, and then tried to fix it by turning it orange (which didn't help the streaks) then when I expressed concern because the color was not what I wanted and there were still streaks and no natural red tones I had asked for, she turned it more orange and fake looking -- actually a brassy carrot.... it looked awful and then she cut off the ends, in a rushed and haphazard manner, despite my saying I didn't want length removed and if she was gonna take anything off that it had to be done VERY carefully.... She worked for five hours, and then said I had to go home and come back.... And then the owner billed me over 600 dollars for work I was still questioning. Ann Marie was very nice while I was in the salon and said I should come back for more work and that she would help fix it and that I should call her, but when I contacted her later on she insulted me for wasting her staff's time. The salon staff is very kind, but it is way overpriced and hyped up and they act one way before you pay and another after -- she basically charged me through the roof for time Ann Marie spent making up for her own procedural errors. And they never advertised or discussed the price with me... I assumed it would be less because there website said the prices were in a range (and accept that I should have asked for confirmation -- but they should have been upfront as well). They left me with a brassy carrot badly shaped mess on my head that is so embarrassing that people laugh and I have been wearing a hat since... I am really concerned it will never look authentic again. It is truly awful. Do not go here.
Janine just did my wife's hair and Wow! it looks amazing Love her work.
Wow! The staff at the salon are wonderful people. They all go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and happy.
I traveled to NYC for a wedding and was in need of hair and makeup services. I made an appt a couple months in advance and dealt with Linda, who was always prompt to send me reminder emails and answered any questions that I had
My stylist for hair and makeup was John. John was phenominal and so very talented. My hair and makeup looked amazing. Another family member made an appt with Joey, for African American hair syling. He also did an amazing job.
My family members were in awe over how glamorous I looked.
Thank you Gerard Bollei Salon, John, Joey and Linda!
Annmarie is the BEST! – Annmarie saved the day! When another salon had ruined my hair by over bleaching and not adding a base color, I came to Annmarie in tears. However, within 15 minutes, no exaggeration, she fixed what I thought was unfixable. When I first came in she couldn't believe how bad the color job was from the other salon. It was so bad that I had to cancel appointments with potential clients for my work because my hair looked ridiculous as colored by the other salon. Annmarie 'fixed' my color on a Saturday (like I said, in only 15 minutes) and I was able to go on my client appointments the next day on Monday. I can't thank her enough. She is truly an expert! She's not only extremely knowledgeable and proficient in color, she is also a very nice person to deal with. I would recommend her to everyone!
Anne Marie is the Best Colorist! – After going to 3 different colorists who did not listen I finally found Ann Marie. She listens and cares. She is a dedicated colorist. I get a lot of compliments on my hair color. Another great thing is she always tries to accommodate you into the schedule.
Never found a better place for hair color! – I agree with all of the positive reviews about Gerard Bollei Salon. The staff there really knows hair color from A to Z. I guess that's why they've been in business for ages - happy clients who spread the word about them to their friends. Check it out and you'll agree they really know about color!
Bad hair color – According to reviews I was supposed to get good hair color but she was terrible my hair is damaged now and wondering how long will take to grow back!
Best Color in New York City! – Eddie Hruz has been doing my highlights for the last 2 years, and I've never had more compliments on my hair before in my life - how natural it looks, how vibrant the color is, etc. I always leave feeling like a million dollars. The salon is a relaxing, welcoming space and I look forward to my visits every time I go.
