Great spa! – I had a facial and a massage here and I really enjoyed it. I had a massage with Mary lou and it was excellent, just the right amount of pressure, she def. customized the massage to my liking. I also had a collagen facial with Amelia who was also excellent, she didnt pressure me to buy products although she did have suggestions and you can tell she truly cares, my skin felt amazing and most importantly to me, her extractions are very gentle and I didnt walk out red. Other places I have been to I always walk out very red and irritated. The spa is like a different world from the salon. I have never gotton my hair done but will def be back to do so. I will def be back
Thought I was being punked. – I'm pretty easy to please but my last cut and style with them was absolutely horrible by anyone's standards. To add insult to injury, the owner, clearly knowing he had created a mess, was trying to tell me it looked good. HE KNEW it didn't look good!! Anyone with eyes could see how absurd it looked. I wish I could attach a photo. My hair was sticking straight up and out ....no exaggeration...no style just a mess...which was not even remotely close to what I had asked for. I honestly felt like I was being punked. Mind you, I ASKED if this was something my hair could do before we got started. If no, fine if yes great. The question was met with an exuburant YES! If the owner couldn't do it, he should have said so. It's that simple.
It is unforgiveable and arrogant to try and sell a client on something you know full well is a mess. Take some pride in your work. Admit when you mess up and try to make good on it. It's unprofessional and not acceptable. The owner clearly has gotten to big for his britches.
I also do not recommend massages there. It was evident this person had no schooling/training. While I can appreciate hiring friends and family, it's more important to hire qualified people.
I've also been left waiting on more than one occassion at the desk patiently...nobody else there, nobody on the phone...this is again where the salon needs some customer service training.
For me results there have been sometimes good, sometimes bad, but this last incidient was so beyond ridiculous it tore it for me. I won't be returning.
SUSAN IS THE BEST! – I actually found Susan at Salon Gio through spotting one of her clients in the street!! I have been going to Susan for years! She is a true Artist with the brush! I promise if you are going to one of the ritzy manhattan salons you are waiting your time and money - Susan is a true gem!
Great Salon – This salon has out done many of the other salons in the neighborhood! I was in a wedding and needed to have my hair in an updo..I called up and asked for their first appt. with whom ever they would give(can't be picky at this point)! I arrived and was greated by a very friendly staff. I met Rosa who listened to what I was looking for and I was nervous since I myself wasn't sure how I wanted my hair. I was so PLEASED with her talent and patience. When I arrived to meet up with all the other brides maids I was impressed that my hair stood out from the rest!! I immediately made a haircut appt for the following week. I just had my haircut yesterday and I absolutely LOVE IT AND LOVE ROSA!!! She has a new and dedicated client! It is very difficult to find someone you just "click"with and does exceptional work! I am terrible at making appts. but no need to worry here!! They call you and confirm the night B4. I am so grateful because I need someone to keep ontop of me f/ personal appts since I am soo busy with business appts. I scheduled my appt in 8 wks and I know they will call to remind me....The best part is..I know I will find excuses to go back in the next week to even have my hair blown out.. Way to go Salon Gio and Rosa...You stand out from the rest and the prices are extremely reasonable.....Hhhmm maybe I will schedule a facial next I'm already impressed!
Editorial Review – Salon Gio features a menu of services ranging from nail care and expert hair color to waxing and massage.
Color specialists are really better....... – After years of bad experiences and unprofessional attitudes I have struck gold. Salon gio offers service that exceeds your highest expectations. I was highly recommended to see Susan their only color specialist and I have never been happier.
Susan took her time with my consultation, I immediately felt comfortable . She was knowledgable and professional . Susan knew all the latest looks but was able to customize a hair color for my skin tone and busy lifestyle. She explained step by step each procedure , and knowing how nervous I was she was patient . Which is rare in my salon experiences. I never felt rushed and my experience was wonderful. My hair color is beautiful and people stop me all the time for compliments and her buisness card.
I highly , highly recommend Susan and Salon Gio. You will truly be happy .
Gorgeous Salon& Spa NYC-like experience – I had looked on city search to find a salon near my house. After viewing the other reviews for Salon Gio I figured I would give it a try. Even though i was only schedueling an apt, the owners & staff were all divine. I felt very welcomed....... I made an apt with Elizabeth for a facial. This facial had to be the BEST one I have ever gotten! Elizabeth definetly knew what she was doing,
After the facial I decided to have my hair done. I saw a few reviews on Anthoula and figured I would try her out. I wanted a new look, While consulting with me she recommended a perfect style that was easy to maintain, very stylish and we also decided to put a gloss which would liven up my locks and give it a fantastic shine. Well, I was absolutely very pleased with everything. The whole experience, from the shampoo to the final result.....and while waiting with the gloss n my hair the staff was very attentive. Anthoula is now my new stylist, very professional, easy to talk to, very helpful ..
Thanks so much Anthoula!!!
Top-notch hair salon with affordable prices!! – This salon is definitely the best salon I have been to. Not only does this salon exude class, without the snottiness that some other local salons have, but my hairstylist Anthoula was always very professional from the first day that I went to her and she just keeps getting better everytime I go back. I know that I can trust her to tell me what would look good on my hard-to-style curly hair. During our last session, she recommended a long side-swept-bang and I was hesitant, but after tons of reassurance from Anthoula, I absolutely love it! It is so easy to manage (just like Anthoula said it would be), and I have gotten so many compliments about my hair. Paying at the front desk is very quick and they are very affordably priced. This salon is definitely a must if anyone is looking for a relaxing day at the salon.
Great Salon – I made an appointment @ Salon Gio for the first time a few weeks ago. A friend recommended I see Anthula, I was in a rut because I had gone to my usual place and they butchered my hair! I tried Anthula over at Salon Gio, not only was she very proffessional but I felt very comfortable and I could trust her. I let her change my hair color which was gorgeous and she gave me the exact cut I wanted! The shampoo I got from her assistant was wonderful, the service was great! and checkout was fast and affordable! HIGHLY RECOMMEND SALON GIO
