"karma chamelion" – I walked in and got an appointment there and then. Everyone was polite and accomodating, I don't expect a lot from conditioner application having had some horrors in the past, but this one took me to another world. The stylist was lovely and discussed all aspects of the cut before starting....she was also good chat. The end result is better than I hoped for or expected, and I am pleased to have found such a great place near to where I live.
Save Your Money, Dignity . . . – You'd think that a name like Aveda implies quality service, but I probably would have been better off styling my hair with toddler scissors and my left-hand
Everything seemed to be going fine up to the point I sat down in the chair. Unfortunately, my very simple instructions to leave my hair mid-length and just thin out the bulk proved to be too laborious or complex a task for the stylist. Instead, I spent the next HOUR AND A HALF, being seriously berated/hit on for my seemingly bad posture--the guy literally told me he was going to "give me a spanking," if I didn't sit up straight. Then, after being queried on my sexual preference which I told him was straight, I spent the remainder of the session listening to the importance of tolerance and equality and my supposed lack thereof. . . Give me a break!
Very Satisfied – I saw Christine and she gave me the best haircut I have had in years. She understood what I wanted and was able to take away damage while minimizing the length she took. The style was very easy to keep up and style...so much so that I haven't been back in months--but, I just made an appointment with her for tomorrow!
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – This Aveda Concepts Salon offers cuts, permanent waves, facials, manicures, pedicures and a range of waxing services.
Nice place. – I have been here 3 times, once for color. Very pleased with my color, though it's gone after a couple months. Christina, my stylist, doesn't rush, like so many Manhattan salons, and I have no trouble getting an appt. She does a good job, because she doesn't assume I am going to spend hours on my hair and that I want the latest trend. I am never pressured to buy products.
Average Camelion – In a nutshell: appearances can be deceving. This is a beautiful Aveda salon, but the skill of its stylists is not up to par. I've had 2 different stylists over the past 2 yrs and both were average--doing a perfectly fine job with trims, but anything more drastic, modern, or creative is a bit beyond their abilities. The cuts are moderately priced ($35-$55), but even that seems like a bit too much for what you get. Supercuts may be of better value. They are extremely nice, though, and you will have a pleasant experience, though maybe not an ideal haircut.
Great Cuts!! – I just moved from the slope and I miss Levi! He's definitely one of the best stylists i've ever had- i'm still deciding whether or not to brave the commute out there for him...
