Based on professionalism solely, I would NOT recommend this salon! It started with my "consultation" if you can call it that wherein I was belittled in front of other patrons due to my so called lack of knowledge about natural hair. Yet I decided to move past that and see what the stylist, Tracy, could do, as it would be my first press and curl and I wanted what I presumed to be the best (based on reviews). So I set the appt and less than a week before called to confirm. The day of my appointment, earlier today actually I arrived to shuttered and locked doors. I was about 15 minutes early so I thought maybe I should kill a little time. Mind you, today in New York, it is about 11 degrees and feels like 3 and I have no car. Anyway, I made it back in 15 minutes and the salon was still closed. I was so livid. I waited a little over thirty minutes in the cold and no one ever showed. I ended up going down the block to a random salon, desperately and got my hair done for thirty bucks cheaper than Tracy's quote and it was a decent turnout! I even went back to see if it was still closed and it was.. No one ever opened up that day. I can't judge based on her work because I never got to experience it but as for professionalism, it was deplorable. As a person who has been in customer service most of her working life, that is NOT the manner in which you conduct business. I'm sure Tracy's devoted clients will stick with her and that's fine but new client beware.
THE BEST SALON IN HARLEM WORLD – I LOVE THIS SALON. TRACY'S HANDS DO WONDERFUL THINGS TO ANY KIND OF HAIR TEXTURE. SHE IS AFFORDABLE, AND JUST THE BEST STYLES EVER. SHE IS THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN HARLEM. JUST TAKE THE 2, 3 ,C OR B TRAIN TO 116TH IN MANHATTAN, NY AND SHE IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. TRACY CAN DO ALL KINDS OF STYLES, NATURAL, RELAXED AND ALSO COLOR. ALL OF HER STYLES ARE GREAT. SHE ALSO DOES LOCKS AND TWISTS AND SO MANY OTHER NATURAL STYLES TOO. SHE TREATS EACH AND EVERY CLIENT VERY SPECIAL.
I just got a new cut and color at Agape's. I look and feel fabulous and the prices are unbelievable. Thank you Tracy for your artistry!
Only natural hair salon I'll ever go to. – I cut my hair off about a year and a half ago and hadn't since spent a dime on a stylist since. This came from a combination of wanting to learn to care for my hair myself, being a broke college student (manhattan salons, especially natural ones, are EXPENSIVE), and not trusting that stylists knew/cared to know how to deal with my kinky 4a/4b hair. But recently I decided I wanted a color and didn't trust myself to do it. Cue Tracy, reasonably-priced natural hair stylist extraordinaire. Tracy's got a huge personality that I first found to be a lot - but she's hilarious and talented, and will make sure she knows exactly what you want and provide recommendations that only a person with an eye for visual art could. (You'll get what I mean the second you step into her gorgeous quaint salon.) I want to get a good split-ends trim without having to straighten my hair soon, and there's nowhere else I'd consider going.
I'll post some pictures of how beautiful the color turned out, in a stretched and un-stretched fro. Run, don't walk if you want quality natural service without emptying your bank account. The reviews don't lie.
Always a Good Job – A year ago, I was new to New York and had gone to several places that were tearing out my hair. Finally, I went to Tracy and she took care of my hair and gave me a fab cut. Even other patrons were admiring her work on my head. Then this month I came back after letting my hair grow out natural. I was ready to rock it and knew just where to go. When you're in Tracy's chair, you feel special. She takes pride in her work and gets excited along with you during the styling process. Wig, weave, natural or perm, Tracy will take good care of you.
Great Place for NATURAL Hair!! – She gives you the tools to do it yourself. Although you will probably still go back.
Best beauty hair stylist – Wow I don't know where to start, because I have so much to say, Tracy is one of the best stylist I've ever seen.Before I came to her I was stuck with my wigs and was doing my own hair any way I could. I had given up on beauty salons.A friend told me about Agape, Boy I was happy. She knew what My hair needed , she made love to my hair likes she said it. I was so pleased I recommanded her to all my friends and family. My hair grew so much ever since. she has great products, she treat everyone base on their individual needs. she doesn't use the same shampoo for everyone.
Tracy is a true miracle, I felt like a new person again. she's very honest and amazing.Tracy does it all. Thank You soooo much for restoring my hair, You are the best.
Great Service, Great Atmosphere, Great Hair! – I have been a client for 11 years now. I can honestly say that Tracy is the most honest & talented "hair creator" I know. She does everything!! I'm feel so blessed to have found such a diamond in the rough of the haircare industry.
Best Natural Hair Salon – I LOVE this salon, and to think it was right under my nose for many years. I started going to Agape 4 weeks ago and my hair has made an amazing transformation. My hair was shoulder length, thin and fine. It is now full and healthy and wonderful. The owner and hair professional, Tracey, is gifted...she knows what she's doing, and she uses the best products available. She knows exactly what your hair will need upon observing your hair. Everytime I leave her establishment, I get compliments from whomever I encounter.
I am Blessed to have found her, and so is my daughter! We love Tracey, and her amazing skills -- and you will too!
One of the best salons – You have done wonders to help my hair regrow after taking medications that thinned my hair on both sides and in the top. Your recommendations for at home care between visits are a maricle. keep up the good work.
