Hair and Nail Salon – This is a great place to get your nails done. They do an excellent job, great color selection, and atmosphere. I am very picky when it comes to my nails.I never had a bad experience at this salon.
Terrible salon experience, haircut anyone could have done – I went into Jean Leon this evening for a simple trim of my long hair. All I wanted to do was take off the split ends. When I called for the appointment I told them I just wanted a trim, for which I was told the cost would be $30. When I sat down with the 'stylist' I told her again that I just wanted a trim - not a "blowout" (what is that anyway?) which costs an extra $30. I was just going home. I don't do much with my hair and I avoid blow dryers.
After she was done trimming (which took maybe 10 minutes), she asked again what we were doing, and I told her very clearly that I do not blow dry or straighten my hair, ever; I just let it do what it does. So what does she do? She goes right on ahead and straightens my hair with a blowdryer.
Since I don't go to salons or do these things, I didn't really realize what she was doing - I thought she was just drying it a bit so she could check the length. I didn't figure it out until she was halfway through my head, and said, "your hair looks nice straight, doesn't it?"
I said, "no, I don't like it." In fact, I HATE IT. So what did she do then? She went right on straightening my hair! By the end I looked like a ridiculous plain-jane 70's throwback, about as unappealing as I can possibly get. My wavy/curly hair is probably my best feature, and she'd succeeded in removing all of its good qualities.
To add insult to injury, when I got up to the counter I was told that my total was over $60! I told the girl that I hadn't asked for and in fact did not at all want the blowdryer treatment I'd received, and she pretty much told me that didn't matter.
The haircut itself is fine I guess, but it's really nothing my mom couldn't have done in the kitchen in about 15 minutes. I have no layers, I have no nothing. Trim the ends, that's it. The salon experience was just awful, and I left hating the way I looked and feeling VERY overcharged. I just hope that once I wash my hair it looks like my hair again!
Best hair place and amazing service – I love this place! I went to get Brazilian straightening and absolutely love it! The girl that did it, Svetlana, did a very good job for a great price. I also had my highlights done there and always get compliments from other stylists. I try to go at least once a week to get my hair blown out for the weekend, I have probably tried everyone there and they are all very professional and do a great job. I also recommend their treatments, I only had it done once and liked the way my hair felt afterwards. It gets busy sometimes, but never had an issue, maximum that I had to wait was 15 mins. So would definitely recommend it to everyone especially for big jobs like straightening, highlights and color.
Excellent Salon – I highly recommend this salon to anyone that is looking for a great cut and color. I have had many terrible experiences in the past, however am now completly satisfied with Jean Leon. I am particular about my color and cut, Natasha did an excellent job of listening to me and giving me exactly what I came in for. Great service, great price, and a proffesional staff. Atmosphere is relaxed as well as comfortable.
Amazing color and highights!!! – I am overly picky about my hair and this was by far the best Highlights and blowout in my life. Irina, the Salon Owner, really knows her craft, my hair has never, ever looked better. The staff was also super nice and professional, I will definately be back!
Great blonde highlights and cut! – My Mom and I recently visited Jean Leon (she for a cut, I for full highlights - both with Irina). I must say that we were both extremely happy with the results even though we are pretty picky about our hair and have been to a number of other NYC salons which claim to have "celebrity hairstylists" but at the end of the day the results are basic and at times even disappointing. Everyone at the salon was pleasant and we got a relaxing experience. My honey blonde highlights came out looking great and my Mom's cut really compliments her facial features. Overall, we are very happy and can't wait to come back for a new visit. Thanks again Irina!!!
Depends on your hair type – The price is right, my cut was decent. The stylist I had was okay, but the blowdry style left much to be desired. I should have paid extra and gone to my usual place. So much for saving $25; would have been worth it. I have curly hair and got it blown out straight, so after I wash it and it goes curly we'll see if the cut is as decent as I think it is. Aside from my experience, this place seems good for men's cuts and women with straight hair.
Great Salon , Great People – The salon itself is very inviting and at the same time very relaxing. The first time I got work done their I was surprised on how efficiently they worked. I recieved the exact highlights that I wanted with little explanation. The salon is a great place to get your highlights and color done. The other reason I like the place so much is because of all the cute guys that are always there.
Editorial Review – A no-frills, go-to salon chain for efficient and inexpensive cuts and coloring, plus Redken products for both men and women.
Best service and value in NYC! – I have been coming to Jean Pierre for years and have consistently recieved excellent services. The people that work there will listen to what you want and give you just that- not like other places where the stylists try to get creative and you end up leaving with 5 inches more off your hair than you wanted! Their colorists are amazing and if you're looking for a great blowout you're not going to find a better one for the money anywhere else in the city!
