Got ombre color done by George twice and he is awesome! He really knows what he is doing and looks to give you the best possible look without doing damage to your hair. Looking forward to go back to this salon- Simply the best!

I would recommend them and do! If you are looking for a professional salon without the in and out the door treatment this place is for you. With lots of talent hurry and schedule your appointment at First Impression Studio. Don't be nervous to try something new. In the past I traveled to NYC to style my hair and now I can say lucky for me my salon is only a few mins away, but the quality and consistence of the service is as good as and even better than any NYC salon. And their coloring work is Fantastic the truth is my hair has never felt so good because of the time they take with you to do it right from the start. Before every appointment my stylist George always has a short consultation with me, which (always) makes me feel comfortable and appreciated. When I walk out I feel GORGEOUS, my hair is HEALTHY, SEXY, MODERN, but still PROFESSIONAL. I absolutely love this place and you will to. The husband and wife team are friendly and they always take the extra step to make sure your experience with them is a great one. A must try!

Good experience at First impression. The owner George my stylist, was wonderful and really listened to what I wanted. I have long, difficult, wavy thick hair, which I wanted tame down and to color (lighter) and layered so it was not so

Pros: They do great work and take their time doing so. never feel rushed

Cons: You have to have an appointment. That means I can't just walk in which I tend to do

I just received the best cut from George. I would highly recommend him. He takes care to give you the best cuts possible and pays attention to detail. The cut he gave me was the best. He is very sweet and explained to me exactly what he would do for me and then does it. No chunks of hair flying off or No funky surprises. I really wanted to keep my length and he managed to leave it, while really giving me a new 'do and totally reshaping my hair and giving it a great up to date style. The salon is really nice and relaxing and they offer coffee or tea to enjoy while you have your service done. The cut was so nice that more then a few people asked me where I get my hair done weeks after. I can't wait to go back. Thanks George

George knows how to cut and color hair so you walk out looking and feeling beautiful- and it lasts. I have corse curly hair that naturally frizzes, but now I have fabulous curly with rich color. Everyone is professional and so well trained. It is an pampering experience I look forward to, knowing I will be taken care of well.
My hair is beautiful- thank you George!

George had given me a flattering hair cut every time I have seen him. He was able to do a correction cut when I was butchered by another stylist...when I went to him my hair looked horrible...but I ended up with the best hair cut

The Hairstylist I used a few times seems to disappear without a word. I needed a haircut and color like yesterday. You know how that feels, but was hesitant to go somewhere new. The good thing about the internet is that you can always find

George and Siv are true professionals and after 6 years of searching for the perfect salon after migrating to NJ from NY, I am elated. My haircut fits my face and my lifestyle and the color and highlights make my hair look like I am 20

I have difficult hair and have always had a tough time with hair cuts. George does a great job managing my hair and always suggests just the BEST thing for my hair. I am always happy when I leave the studio because I know that I have received a quality cut that will last until the next time I visit.

George is a genius when it comes to healthy and beautiful hair! He is very reliable and honest.
My hair was dull, dry and unmanagable. He worked with my hair, and gave me great tips on how to keep it healthier longer, especially for the summer. Now it's shiny, sexy and gorgeous!
I look forward to many more years with George. Now I know there is no better stylist than him!!

After finding First Impression under the yellow pages with endless reviews to see George. I gave it a shot. George is a one of a kind, he works with you to teach you how to create that wonderful hair style he has just done for you. You will not be disappointed with George.

This salon is absolutely top shelf. It is artfully decorated and very welcoming. I was very nervous about getting a new style but George immediately put me at ease. He is a true artist. I walked in there feeling awful with the worst haircut. George is a true professional and went to work right away. By the time he was done, I felt like a million bucks. My hair feels great and now, so do I. I highly recommend him. I will never go to anyone else. George, you have a client for life!!!

After an appointment with Siv for a hair cut and brazilian straightening, absolute strangers have been commenting on how nice my hair looks!! I have never had complete strangers ever compliment my hair - ever! it is a true testament to her awesomeness and just thought I would pass it on so other people could experience the same.

Tired of the look on my hair, I was looking for a change, and a new hair salon. I was pleasantly surprised not only did I get a great cut, but was surprised that I did not have to pay $100 to get one. I saw George, who according to the website is one of the owners, Modern and fun atmosphere. I have found my new salon! By the way everyone loved the change. All smiles here!

The salon provides a relaxing atmosphere by offering their clients a gown and beverage upon arrival. They are very friendly and knowledgeable about different products that are suitable for your hair and skin type. I recommend booking

I think it's all been said in regards to George, Siv and their salon but as a client for over a year now, I have to add my 2 cents.
I was nearing 50, and after years of fighting it, had finally embraced my naturally wavy hair. Only one problem....noone knew how to cut it. I always left salons looking like an alien, and usually cried the whole way home. Desperate, I did a Google search one day for best hair colorist in NJ. Well the amount of reviews for First Impression Studio blew me away. Not only the amount, but all the wonderful things they had to say. Now I've traveled to NYC in search of a 'good' not even great haircut, with no success. After having been back and forth to Redbank Vet Hospital every week for my dogs, Little Silver did not seem much further. So I booked an appointment, sight unseen, and from the moment I walked in, I knew I had finally found 'the place'. I was met at the door by Casey, their Bernese Mountain dog and all my trepidation just melted away.....I mean they had to be great. They loved animals! Well I went in with dry, overprocessed hair and over the course of several cuts was finally transformed with a healthy, BEAUTIFUL, easy to manage, first-rate cut and color. I LOVE MY HAIR. I have NEVER been able to say that, never! At my 3rd appointment, I told George he had completely changed my life. I no longer have to wash and style my hair everyday. I can go for up to 4 days without styling it, the cut is that great. I've embraced my bedhead, and everyone says it looks amazing. Now I know I've rambled on and that you probably will think I was paid to write this, so please feel free to contact me at bfinacchio@yahoo.com or call me at 908-810-0626. The salon, George, Siv are REALLY that great.

With my last stylist out of town and not be able to go to anyone else I could truly trust. I desperately needed my roots colored due to the grays because I was going on a business trip myself. I was so tempted to throw some color on my roots myself but my friend convinced me not to, and I am glad that I did not. She recommended that I try this salon, so I went on line first to search about them and read the reviews and decided to give it a shot. Based on the previous reviews George was the guy to go to. I called on Friday and requested an appointment with him and got in the very next week. I am soooooooo happy that I the nerve to let someone new color and cut my hair after having the same person do my hair for so long. He really did take the time to listen to me and gave me exactly what I requested. I told him that I would like long layers and I got just that. He is extremely confident when it comes to his craft, He took a couple of glances of my hair, mixed hair color up, applied it to my roots, and was a perfect match to my existing hair color. It even covers all the grays unlike my past coloring. He even put in a few highlights around my face to frame and soften the total look of the color, what a different it made! He is awesome. All I can say I really love his work and to give him a shot.

I got my first haircut from George yesterday. He was awesome--he spent a lot of time with me and gave me good recommendations for the type of haircut that would look good on me and the way that I should be caring for my hair. I am so happy with the haircut and I've already referred one of my friends to him. Thanks, George!

I travel a lot and need to stay sharp looking for my job, and since I never know what I am going to deal with when going to a new salon I just always chose salons where the prices seemed extravagant. . OK-I have paid over $200 before for a haircut in the city and after reading a few great reviews and going to this salon. I have decided I will never go anywhere else. When I went to this salon I didn't ask how much it cost for my cut/color, just figured I was going to pay close to $500 for the works of color highlights and a cut. OK so it takes me an a little more than an hour to get there but that does not bother me if the work is good. There is something about this place, the people, the environment; everything is perfect no one is rushing around as I am used to... They seriously know what they are doing, care about what you want, and have a strong attention to detail. They care about you from the moment you walk in--making sure your car is parked in their lot so you don??t have to look for parking on the street, bringing you something to drink, making sure you are accommodated in every way. I have had super expensive haircuts out of New York and the haircut I have now doesn't even come close. Their prices are competitive yet I can guarantee you that your haircut/color will feel like you paid way more.... I love love love my cut/color from George and won't go anywhere else now, but I suggest booking yourself for a cut/color here sometime soon before it becomes one of those salons that is booked 6 months out.

I can speak from my own personal experience. I judge how good the work is by how long it last for me. I have tried various salons in this area and nothing beats this salon for cuts and color and Skin care. The kind of service you will receive when you go to this salon. From the minute you walk in the door to the minute you walk out you get the highest quality of service. Nothing but all smiles here. I get the best haircuts and color from George. Never in the past have had I received compliments on my hair when I am ready to go back to the salon for my next cut and color... Brielle Mary

Typically, I don't write reviews. However, I had a great experience at First Impression. I have had highlights done for over a decade. Recently, I went to a salon which I will not name where the colorist trashed my hair . The highlights were so fried and so dryed out with that awful zebra stripe. I went to George who took the time and great care to work on my hair. And was able to fix this mess. I think my hair has never looked better and the shine is back like years ago. I am so impressed and relieved at the same time! I highly recommend this salon.

If you are searching for a professional stylist who will give you a look to suite your features and lifestyle like I was,then this is THE place to go. George is an extremely talented, professional stylist, and takes the time to analyze your hair, and customize your cut. I absolutley love what he did with my hair, and so is the hubby. George has the passion it takes to be a truly world class stylist! I cant say enough about my experience, you will just have to go and see for yourself.

My impression of the salon was that they were friendly and very professional. Within talking to George for a few minutes, I immediately felt comfortable enough to allow him to chop off my hair, which was super long. I cannot say it enough: I love my new hair cut! He took the challenge on with absolutely no fear and transformed my whole look! I don't think I will ever grow it out again! And the best part is all of the compliments I have been getting. From the moment I walked out of the door I have been getting nothing but positive comments! I recommend this salon for anyone!

Let me start off with saying thanks to George at this salon. Who spends over 4 hours to fix my color. It??s never looks or feel so good. I have gone to plenty of top end salons but I have to say that I have not been happy for a long while. Color would not hold and the highlights were all wash out. I was referred to First Impression Studio by a coworker who told me to give him a try. He is literally amazing I drive all the way from NY once a month now to get a haircut and color from George and have never been happier.

If you truly would like a first class professional stylist, look no further than First Impressions Studios. As a guy looking for something more than just a buzz cut, I was simply amazed by the level of service and attention to detail provided by Siv. I generally switch from salon to salon because you get the feeling you are just a number. At First Impressions, they take the time to listen and find that style you are looking for. Do not hesitate to go if you're from out of town, as I drive an hour and I can tell you, it is definitely worth the trip! This is the place to go if you truly want world class service and professionalism. Definitely the best hair cut I have received!!
Thanks Siv. You are the best!

If you truly would like a first class professional stylist, look no further than First Impressions Studios. As a guy looking for something more than just a buzz cut, I was simply amazed by the level of service and attention to detail provided by Siv.

I had George do my color/highlights /cut and it looks perfect! People comment on the color all the time. I haven't tried the skincare side yet but looking forward to do so. It not too pricey compare to some other so call high end salon around but worth every dollar for a great look. Highly recommended .

Pros: He loves his craft

Cons: No walk in and need to book ahead

This place is beyond amazing with hair color. I honestly don??t know what I would do without George. I don??t trust anyone with my hair but him. I am extremely picky about my hair ?? and I trust him 100%! Before I came to first Impression Studio, I was getting my hair done by another salon that would constantly mess it up, not do what I asked, and have to fix it. NOW that I am with George at this salon, I have no more worries about my hair. My hair looks healthy than it ever has. It is such a pleasure to get my hair done now. He is an artist and extremely detailed oriented. He mixes the best color himself and his work is beyond perfect every time.
I get so many complements on my hair color now ?? I would never go anywhere else.
Everyone at the salon is extremely friendly and professional. I have had nothing but good experiences from this salon. I recommend anyone to go!

Wow! What a treat to have had Siv cut and style my hair at First Impression. She is truly so gifted. I've visited some top hair salons in different countries and this is the best haircut and style I have ever had. She exceeded my expectations! I certainly look forward to seeing her again. Awesome!

There aren't enough words to express how GREAT this salon is. George is FANTASTIC!!!!
I have tried almost every salon from North Jersey to South Jersey and needless to say have spent a fortune on my hair with very poor results. I am totally grey but to young to just let it grow out. No one could get the coloring right. Some thought of going light, others said really dark and one even had me go on the reddish side. All was a disaster. I even started trying to fix it myself which didn't work. Being totally disgusted I was going to go into New York when my daughter came across this site. She said I have nothing to lose. Try George. Boy am I glad I listened to her.

I called George and explained my situation to him. We talked about 20 minutes on the phone. That was very impressive. Made the appt. and he just totally dedicated himself to me. He was not rushing and not doing two or three heads at a time. I just let him decide what color and cut he thought would complement be the most. I was nervous because it was a little dark but he explained that you should always look natural and start with a good base color and then add subtle highlights. I said go for it George you??re the professional.

Well he did and I have never been happier. The current cut I had was like a shag and he said that did nothing for the shape of my face or the texture of my hair. He gave me the most flattering cut as well as the color.

Real, and passionate about his work. Google and Citysearch reviews guided me to this salon and I am so glad I trusted my instinct. Besides doing a super job on my color and hightlights with subtle and long lasting results, he has a real talent for optimizing your looks with amazing hair style suited to your personality and lifestyle. I have never received so many compliments about my haircuts. My husband has never in the past said how much he love my hair and people who have not seen me in a while are so impressed! My last haircut was so versatile there was literally many looks in one! George listens, he is precise, and genuinely cares about sending me out the door looking good. which makes me feel as good as I look. The atmosphere is hip with a European flair but not pretentious. Lots of room for parking a great plus.

Well I emailed him first as I have a 4 month old baby who comes everywhere with me as he is nursed on demand. So George said yes that I could bring him.So that is a huge plus! Needless to say my son screamed the entire time.I was worried and upset over this and George never said anything about him. George is a true pro and gentleman. He gave me the best haircut I have ever had! The whole time I had a crying baby on my lap and he never complained. George and his wife are extremely warm and friendly I highly recommend this salon. I have gone to Manhattan and all over Red Bank and George is the BEST!! Don't walk but run to this salon for all of your hair needs!! Highly Recommended!!!!!

George is such a pro, I was so impressed. He turned my nightmare, damaged, overly processed and brassy hair color into a sparkling natural looking blonde. The difference is astounding. Hard work, but He made it look so easy. He really took the time and energy to not only listen to what I wanted but to figure out what color would truly look great. George is so talented. He was able to really get the most out of my curly hair. The atmosphere at First Impression is hip, yet friendly and wonderfully unpretentious. What a great experience! Highly recommended!

I had someone cut my hair at a near by salon and she totally messed it up by cutting it way too short. I Googled and found George at this salon. He is awesome, he gave me the best hair cut I ever had! I definitely recommend him. I went back there a couple of more times and was always happy. Have to go again soon. Thumbs up for George!

I have been George's client for some time now, Ever since I meet him and his wife at a hair show they were doing in city. Yes, I drive to NJ from the NYC because he is worth driving for and so is Siv his wife for my skin care. He always listens to what I want, offers suggestions when I get too boring and keeps my hair healthy and my style current ! I have trusted him in going from very long to very short and everything in-between. George and Siv has also been on-site stylist for hair and make-up for my daughters wedding in NYC last year. They are just fabulous.

Where do I start? I found George Low strictly by chance, when I Googled 'best hair colorist in NJ'. I mean he had over 80 reviews with 5 stars, and as I'd come to find out, all well-deserved.

First let me tell you that I have very fine, thin wavy hair with an unnatural growth pattern (it grows forward from the crown; ugh!), which is difficult to cut. From the moment I met George I knew I was in good hands. He immediately makes you feel comfortable and at ease. He listened to everything I loved and hated about my hair, and to what my routine was and how much time I was willing to put into it. He painstakingly helped me pick a beautiful auburn color that looked natural and sat with me the entire time my hair was processing, constantly checking it. He fixed my uneven layers and showed me how

using the right products and right techniques made all the difference. In short, he educated me about MY hair in ways that were invaluable. And as if that wasn't enough, George actually called me the following morning to see if I was happy with everthing

he had done. I mean who the heck does that?

I've gone to well-known salons in NY and never been treated as well as I was by George. He loves his craft and he's passionate about it. YOU are his only focus when you're there. And I walked out with 3 products, 1 hair styling tool, a color and a cut for half the price of what I'd spent in the city. Run, don't walk to First Impression Studio. You won't be disappointed.

I have been struggling with my curly hair for years, spending hours straightening and damaging it daily. I finally decided to get it straightened and took a chance. This turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. They did an amazing job on my hair and the results were fantastic. It has been a couple of months since I got this done and it still looks great right out of the shower (with a few touch ups here and there). The few hour experience was a pleasant one, and well worth the wait. I would recommend this to anybody.

I decided to try this salon based on an extensive research, as well as a desire to find a less snobby atmosphere. George was my colorist. he was fantastic! Sweet, non-pretentious and so so talented!! In the past other colorists insisted to make my hair lighter, even though I always felt it was too light. he dared to listen to my wish and I ended up with a gorgeus brown color with so much dimension, I just love it! It surely did wonders for my eyes and skin! He also cut it for me, he is so good! He made me feel soo amazing! My hair looked so beautiful, so shiny and so rich when I left. I would highly recommend it to anyone, surely me and my friends will visit again!!

YOU NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE ME GEORGE!thought fixing my hair color nightmare might be too much of a challenge for anyone! but not for you. YOU DID AN EXCEPTIONAL JOB AND I KNOW IT WASN'T EASY! the best part is you devoted your time just to me to make sure it came out precisely as we discussed in our consultation. you even went out of your way to test strands to guarantee it would be just what i was looking for. that is a quality very hard to find in a professional hair colorist or stylist for that matter. STILL LOVING MY BRAZILIAN STRAIGHTENING!! YOU ROCK GEORGE!!! SEE YOU SOON!!

I was always envious of my best friend's hair cut. It was short, cute and very fun (with her violet/red highlights). When I asked her who she went to she always said this salon in Little Silver and that she got it cut by George. Curious, I tagged along with her on her next appointment. I was surprised that there wasn't a line waiting out the door or that it wasn't overly crowded- I was told that those signs usually made a good salon. But the one on one session between her, the stylist and her hair changed my perception and I immediately made an appointment. Now I have an equally cute and very fun hairstyle that I can style myself. First Impression Studio is a salon that I would recommend to anyone that wishes to update their hair style.

After reading several reviews from this site, I went to First Impression Studio for an appointment. I have had a roller coaster of a time trying to find a decent stylist for so long after my move. Some of my experiences have been life altering and truly traumatic to say the very least. I had given up on high price NYC salons 5 years ago but after reading all the user reviews about this salon, I once again ventured to only try again in NJ, and was delighted by the experience. George was enthusiastic and ready to take on the challenge of the cut/style that I presented him. I brought photos, which he took the time to view and to really understand what I was looking for. I felt in confident hands while he was working his magic, and did not have to worry at all that I was going to be sent back to the stone ages with a disastrous cut. To conclude, I left completely satisfied and very happy. By the way, the staff was very friendly and attentive and I didn't feel rushed or forgotten about. Highly recommend this salon!
