After reading all the great reviews here, I decided to call and make an appointment at what sounded like a great place. I was soooooo wrong. The receptionist was rude, unhelpful and had a terrible attitude. I was so put off by my experience on the phone, that I decided to not even make an appointment. With all the great salons in this city with friendly and pleasent staff, why put up with this level of snobbery.

Pros: there are none...this place is aweful

Cons: too many to list

THE HILLS ARE ALIVE WITH THE SOUND OF JACKIE!!!!

I visited Leonard Golino Salon for the first time last week. I'm automatically hooked!! I have a massive amount of blond highlighted hair and I needed a partial foil. It only took Jackie 5 minutes to consult with me, poor me glass of wine, and say sit back and relax. It's difficult with blond hair because you want it to be BLOND but, you still want various colors of demension. That's exactly what I left with!! She used a Kerastase "Ciment Thermique" styling product that left my hair silky and full of shine. I left with the product and a smile from ear to ear.

Pros: The best NYC Salon, housing the best stylist in the biz!

Cons: None

I was recommended to Jackie as a good a stylist under $100, and she was awesome. I got a nice stylish cut that is flattering to my face and easy to blowout myself. This is one of the first times i've gotten layers that don't look mullet-ish. my hair still looks long, but with more style and texture to it. definitely recommend her.

Moved to NYC in the spring and was so lucky to find Janet! Recomended to her by my roomate who always has great hair even when she just wakes up. She is so skilled and pays great attention to detail. She's a perfectionist who will never let you walk out of the salon looking less than perfect. Her highlights are always very natural looking and she gives a great deep conditioning treatment afterwards to keep it looking healthy.
Another pro is that the rest of the staff is great too. The receptionists are adorable and always give you a confirmation call the day before. The assistants are so kind and great at what they do. Especially the assistant C.C who is great about taking your coat right away and making you feel at home. I always tip her extra for her excellent shampoo too. The Kerastase products are great and they even serve good wine. Just can't say enough about how much I love this place!

Pros: Janet's expertise, prompt service, open 7 days a week

Cons: nothing bad about the place in my opinion

.

I am a faithful and loyal client of Mr. Leonard Golino himself. His salon is so tastefully decorated and his staff is as sweet as pie. He is also a Kerastase salon, which is an AMAZING hair product line, and THAT right there is a HUGE plus.

If you're looking for the kind of salon you can go to & just KNOW you'll never need to search for a stylist again, then this is the spot for you. The friendly banter and yummy hot tea they serve will keep you coming back again and again!

Cons: Nada, baby! 'Tis perfect.

i recently went to this salon on a whim and got a haircut with Daniella. She gave me a great cut, I havent had one like this in a while! She really listened to what I wanted and suggested a cut that was just right for my hair type, and when I washed and styled it a few days later it just fell into place. The place is friendly and warm and everyone there is so welcoming, from the front desk to the girl who washed my hair. Great conversation too! I will definately be back again.

i took most reviewers advised to check this place but it is okay. the place is very nice and cozy but russ cut my hair way too short. i explained how i wanted and he kept saying he got it...in the end my hair was not i expected. he blowed dry my hair and it was getting too hot that could burn my skin! i was unhappy but overall he was a nice guy...i would not go there again if i want to get my hair shorten, i could go to barber shop. salon is salon for texture and styling.

The salon is a pleasure to visit- both low key and friendly. Leonard's cuts and color have made my hair healthier and more polished. I can't imagine going anywhere else.

I recently went to Leonard Golino salon for my cutt and color. I REALLY like my stylist but the last time I went there it was ridiculously cold. I mean my fingers were turning blue. I couldn't wait for my blowout so I could warm up a little. I felt bad for the employee's and ask one of them if there was something wrong with the heat. To my surprise she replied "No". Mind you this employee was in a coat the whole time I was there. Again I like my stylist and this reveiw is not to demean this salon but they really need to do something about the heat.

You know you got a good haircut at lunch when you get back to your desk & everyone either stops & tells you it's great or they're doing a double take as they go by & back tracking to tell you how great you look You know you got a good haircut when a week later the security guards in a very large midtown office building take the time to tell you that you got a great haircut. I just hope the rest of me measures up to the great haircut Leonard gave me!!! Easy to take care of and everything just falls into place.

Leonard Golino is a master and this salon is a fabulous place to get beautiful. My colour is always gorgeous and I leave the salon feeling amazing. I have long difficult hair, and Leonard has helped me bring it back to a really healthy state, while still being able to highlight and lowlight, plus he helped me chose a cut which suits my busy life and personality. He truly is as good as all the press say he is.

Pros: Easy to get to, great atmosphere, professional and experienced team

.

Quite simply, no other haircut I've gotten compares to the one I get from Len.

Over the years, I'd been to a dozen different places looking for a haircut I liked with no satisfaction. Len's cut is stylish, professional, and more flattering than any other cut I've had.

The salon itself has a very nice atmosphere. The people are laid-back, friendly, and helpful. I actually enjoy going, whereas with most places it felt more like a trip to the dentist.

Overall, I would give the salon my highest recommendation.

I am a true believer in Leonard Golino salon. I've tried many other top salons in NYC, and nothing else compares. The skill, atmosphere, friendliness of staff, etc... make this salon top notch. The best part about the salon is that you walk in and feel "at home" with the staff and other customers. I've been hesitant to write, simply because I did not want to share my secret. Callie has cut/highlighted my hair in recent months, and I will never go to anyone else! She's f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s. She is very honest, and will tell you what works and what doesn't. I always walk out looking and feeling like a million bucks!

I've had bad experiences in the past with chunky highlights (not cool!!!) but i was sooo pleased with the outcome this time around... she was super sweet & i felt like she really listened & gave me just what i wanted ...great salon!! =)

As a man living in the city, I was always searching for a stylist that could cut and style my hair to perfection without me having to worry about - simply put - getting a bad hair cut. My first experience here I went to Vick, that was two years ago, and I've been going to him ever since. I have recommended my friends to him who have also loved the styles Vick has chosen to do on them. Not only does Vick know how to cut and style hair, but he also keeps you entertained at the same time. He's very funny, energetic, hospitable and is passionate about his work. I would definitely continue to recommend people to try this salon. You'll feel right at home when you walk in!!!!

Went into the salon on Friday without an appointment. Everyone was very pleasant and took me right away. This was my first time there and I did not ask for a specific person. Gianna cut my hair. In addition to her friendly attitude the cut was the best cut I've had in years. Her techniques were up to date and she really listened to what I wanted, not too short but a little different. I am looking forward to going back in 6 weeks. Great salon!!

There is only one reason to visit Leonard Golino's Salon and her name is LUCIA! Not only can you ask for a more professional hairdresser, but the personality that comes along with it is PRICELESS! Lucia has such passion for what she does and the results show! I have never recieved more compliments on my haircut and style! The staff is welcoming, and the experience is always a great one! This is the place to get the best haircut,color, and style......the free wine is also a perk!

Just a wonderful salon, friendly, caring and completely professional. Leonard has been doing my hair for years and people on the street have actually stopped me and asked where I get it done! I can't say enough good things about Leonard and his staff. No one will ever do my hair again but Leonard!

I've been seeing Leonard for ? 8 ? years --- seems like forever! He has always been honest and open with advice on what to do with my hair and what would work for me---color, cut, processing....the Japanese Relaxer changed my life (really!!) - He (and the entire staff) always makes sure you completely understand their suggestion....they want to make sure you are a satisfied customer...I've never felt pressured or pushed into a decision. I guess that's why I've been going back for so many years. He is committed to making sure I'm happy with the end result. The atmosphere is relaxed and un-pretentious. The staff entire is friendly and fun. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommended!!!!

I have been going to the Leonard Golino salon almost loyally for the past three years. Leonard has been able to miraculously fix my mishaps (My hair was a frosted disaster after getting highlights done in Spain and Leonard didn't even scold me after my shameless bout with manic panic). He was even able to easily resuscitate me back into a blonde after foolishly going red. In other words, he's seen it all and done it all. Now, my hair looks the healthiest and most natural it has ever looked and the cut is fantastic. My cut and color always last me an unexpectedly long time, because Leonard is so amazingly skilled at what he does. Not to mention, the buzz of the salon is always fun and the other stylists are always warm and entertaining. It's lovely to be in a place where everyone is enjoying themselves and the service is spectacular.

Lenny is great with color but just has not cut my hair in way that flatters me or is easy to style. While it has not been difficult to get an appointment with him when I need one, he never is on schedule-- I have always had to wait. Lenny is also frequently distracted with phone calls and other clients arriving for appointments. I don't feel like I have his complete focus or attention. Everyone who works there is very nice and friendly but the overall experience does not match up to other salons charging comparable prices. It's just not a salon that I am comfortable recommending to my friends.

I never looked better!
I went into Leonard Golino Salon with change on my mind! I was recommended from a friend who literally went from mousey to MODEL in and hour!
The up-tempo music made me feel like I was walking into a fashion show.
I told Lenny "my hair is in your hands!"
The detail and precision made me feel important! I received a phone call the next day from Lenny himself, asking me if I liked my hair! I have never had a stylist care so much about their client. My answer to his question - ?I LOVE IT!?
I will never get my hair cut and colored by anyone else!!!
If you are looking for a change, color, trim, whatever- Leonard Golino Salon is AMAZING.

Went to Leonard several times. He is a great guy and does amazing color. The problem is that he keeps taking walk-ins so that he keeps you waiting for hours. I didn't complain the first time, but the second and third determined that as friendly as he was-my time is not worth his wait. Also, I gave my email and have received too many requests to write a review on this site to receive a discount.

I first went to see Leonard five years ago and was happy with my hair cut for the first time ever. He has consistently been giving me great cuts ever since. He's the only stylist who has been able to predict what my slightly wavy , medium length hair will do once I try to style it myself (I'm not that good with hair!). He's given me easy-to-maintain yet great-looking cuts that grow out well. I tried other more expensive places before I tried him but he's given me FAR better cuts than anyone else. I sent several friends to the salon over the years and they were just as happy with their experiences there. The salon itself is a cute, sleek place. Leonard and his stylists are super friendly and super sweet. Going to the salon feels like hanging out with friends. I always leave feeling great about my hair and about catching up with Leonard and his crew!

I have been going to Leonard Golino Salon for about two years and whenever i walk in i feel like part of the family. The service is great and the people are amazing. I like to make my appointments during the week because it is a sigh at the end of a long work day... a glass or two (or three) of wine... read one of their hundreds of magazines and chill. I have been in on the weekends which is also great. There is never a bad time to go. Victor got me from a dark brunette to a platinum bombshell in just 3 visits! It was amazing! I am one of those people that gets my hair done whenever i need a change... i am in there about every 2 or 3 weeks and LOVE what i leave with each time. They are undergoing a facelift right now, however you would never be able to tell from the inside. Everything is always in order, clean, and on time. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it is finished!

I love this salon. I am a performer and often need a blow-out or a fun, cute style and Lucia never lets me down. She is patient and listens to what I want (while so many hairdressers don't!) and VERY, very talented. I get compliments on my hair every time I go there. On days when Lucia's not in, I have tried Leneord and a few others. They are all fantastic and I am a tough customer. I can very confidently recommend them to you. Another plus is that there is no attitude or snottiness here. Everyone is warm and friendly and I feel very at home at Leonard Golino.

I had the pleasure of getting my hair highlighted and cut about a month ago at Leonard Golino Salon. This was my first experience there and it was fantastic. As I sipped on a glass of wine, hairsylist Gianina went to work on my hair. The cut and color came out perfect and I was especially satisfied with my new bangs. I will definitely be going back to Gianina to get my hair done again. My overall experience with everyone that I interacted with there was very pleasant.

Saturday was the first time I attended Leonard Golino Salon, and I went to Lucia, and there is no other word to explain how satisfied I was with the results then WOW. She was friendly, took her time to run through several different hair styles, different options I could have, and never rushed or made me feel rushed. I decided to go with a total change and do a whole color and cut, and I AM SOOOOOO PLEASED with the results. She was so professional and she now has another customer for LIFE. It was also a fun lively environment where I felt at ease. I reccomend this salon to EVERYONE, and I definitely reccommed LUCIA.

She was friendly, took her time to run through several different hair styles, different options I could have, and never rushed or made me feel rushed. I decided to go with a total change and do a whole color and cut, and I AM SOOOOOO PLEASED with the results. She was so professional and she now has another customer for LIFE. It was also a fun lively environment where I felt at ease. I reccomend this salon to EVERYONE, and I definitely reccommed LUCIA.

.

I can't say enough about Leonard Golino Salon...from the friendly atmosphere to the gracious compliments, Leonard Golino gives all the warmth and professionalism any salon could offer. I have been going to Leonard for 6 months now and every time my hair looks like I came off a movie set. I have curly thick hair that is hard to manage. I went to so many other salons trying to find someone who could give me a tremendous cut, without cutting my hair so short. Leonard finally came to my rescue and I can keep my hair long! You must stop in and see Leonard at least once. He offers first time clients great offers and you can keep a smile on your face while drinking a glass of wine.

Well, I've never done a review for a hair salon (restaurants yes!), but I must say I feel the need to share my experience on the salon. Five years ago I started going to Leonard for cut and color (I have short hair) and then I tried Lucia and Yuval a few times when Leonard wasn't available.....I've been happy each time. I must say they all have their "own way" and own technique but I realized that if you just tell them what you like and what you don't want they are very good listeners WHICH IS IMPORTANT. I never really paid attention to how people cut my hair before I started going here....they all have taught me so much about my hair, which means I now know how to get it to do what I want! Sometimes we just have to accept that our hair won't do the things we want it to (or that it will look like the picture from the magazine) because of the texture or our natural color, DUH, but they have showed me what my hair DOES DO and they have made me very proud to have the hair that I have. DOES THAT SOUND WEIRD!? My color is dark, very dark, and every cut I found in a picture that I like has been on a blond (maybe I just like blonds?) and Leonard has always got it spot on or very close. Lucia also does a great cut, but she always nails the color, actually so has Lenoard. If I wanted to go more funkier (which maybe I will get the guts soon) I want to go to Yuval or Calli, because I've watched them and listened to them as I sit and have a glass of wine and evesdrop on them and their clients about what they are going to do...they get so excited over color!
Anyway, I think they all love what they do and are very good at it. They deserve what they charge because of their experience and if your not happy a day or two or even a week later, they will adjust it at no charge (which is how it should be, right?). We all work hard for our money....I have no problem spending mine at Leonard Golino Salon. And I can't wait to see the salon when it's done with the final renovation!

Pros: friendly, knowledgeable, always open

Cons: gets crowded

THE REASON WHY I WOUND UP AT LEONARD GOLINO SALON: i had the worst haircut ever... my salon expanded and i got one of the new stylists... i thought it would be fine but murphys law kicked in and omg my hair was aweful... turns out due to some issues of my own with my hair from other salons (highlighting, relaxer + chemical straighting, dying, and styling) had caused my hair to split majorly... It was so damaged they had to cut it all off.... the woman had no idea what she was doing and gave me a haircut between a mullet, pixie, and bob.. it was just plain aweful.. i was in tears... i left there never to go back and went to go look for someplace new....

THE EXPIERENCE: couldn't have asked for more!!! Calli fixed my hair... i did not think it was possible, but she didn't even have to shave my head to do it.... She fixed the color issues and the horrendous layers and gave me something that people were complementing me out the door with... also it was something that i would have never thought to do myself... the wine is a fun touch and everyone is really nice... it is definately worth it!!!

If you have had someone butcher/destroy your hair go their asap to find yourself transformed!!

Pros: Great location, Great Cut, Great Color, Great atmosphere, Plus no pushy products!

While Leonard is a skillful and dedicated hair professional (he's been doing my cuts and color for 7 years), I think his real genius is his ability to hire people who help create the atmosphere that makes this salon so remarkable. There is a warmth and a sense of fun to the place. The energy is young in spirit, though the clientele run the gamut in age and everyone seems comfortable. There's something so special about how they make you feel personally welcome - never a hint of anything snooty or phony. Watching Leonard and the other staff work, you get a sense that they take pride in their skills and that they genuinely enjoy their clients. I know that my concerns about my hair will be listened to, that no one will ever try to sell me products I don't need, and that it matters as much to Leonard as to me that I look my best. My life is so busy that getting my hair done is not something I'd do if I didn't have to, yet I always look forward to going to Leonard's. There are many places, I'm sure, where I could get a great haircut, but what keeps me coming back to Leonard's salon is that it just feels good to be there.

I have always found that my hair has been a subject of much confusion and expenssive mistakes. I have always been frustrated and never looked how I wanted. But finally, after a lot of money and a lot of searching, I love my hair and the expense has declined simply because of one Salon. At first I thought that the Salon couldn't possibly be good simply because the prices were very reasonable, but looking inside I was curious and thought "What the hell, why not". I was given to Calli, who I thought was adorable and very cool, and she thoughtfully took me through what I did and didn't like about my hair and what I wanted to do with it. I got a nice glass of wine and we were off with the task of making my hair look like super star hair. At first she colored it and it turned out to be a beautiful, vibrant shade of red. Then we did the cut. I was really scared because of the funky rocker cut we were going for but hey I was being bold and I felt like I was in good hands. After the cut and dry and a lovely conversation I couldn't believe that I looked so good. I look like a rock star and I love it!!! Not only did it look good after the day at the salon but it looks awesome morning, noon and night. All day long, whether I style it or just mess it up it just looks good. I've been back many, many times to Calli and I look forward to more fun looks that make me feel like a hottie. Yeay!!! Finally good hair and I have money left over!!!

Cons: It's small so it can feel cramped

I went for a few cuts and color recently. Cuts were inconsistent and not very precise. For the price, one expects better. The cuts didn't grow out that well and needed more styling than most haircuts I have had in the past. (I blow-dry and style every day.) Color was just o.k. too. However, I kept going back because I liked the salon and staff. It is a very friendly, fun, and casual place. During my most recent haircut, extra bangs were cut with no warning and close friends didn't even notice the color. They aim to please and would have redone a style or color if I had asked. The results never needed to be "fixed," my hair just wasn't that great.

I met Leonard last year as he is a client of the company I used to work for. We always chatted back and forth about hair among many other things in which I told him that I was tired of having my hair cut like everyone else's hair as it is slightly curly and can be hard to manage. On one occassion when with him, I showed him exactly what I wanted...I needed to be able to grow my hair out with out all the frize and curl so that I could actually grow it out instead of getting to a certain point and having it chopped off out of frustration. The next week I made an appointment. His staff was amazing and very friendly. Leonard straightened my hair for me and gave me the most amazing haircut. I have never walked out of a salon loving my hair until I met Leonard. I have consulted him throughout the entire grow out. I am a designer and work with clients that have more money than God. I always feel like a million bucks because I am finally not self conscience about my hair anymore. I recommend Leonard to everyone of my friends. Thank you so much! You're amazing!

I've been getting my hair cut by Leonard for around five years and have never considered going elsewhere since. I found this salon from a recommendation, and soon realized that I randomly stumbled upon a salon that was different in many ways. Since my initial visit, I've found this place to be a rare find in Manhattan. Leonard is a very talented stylist that understood what I was looking for in a hairstyle from the beginning. From what I've seen with clients that use the other stylists, there is definitely a consistent level of skill throughout the place. Aside from this, what I've always liked about this place is the easygoing vibe that it has, how clients are remembered and treated very well. The atmosphere has more of a personal, local neighborhood type of feel. This is just an added plus to going somewhere for a cut, being able to relax, and know that you're in excellent hands.

So, after hearing how great the salon was, I thought I would give Lucia a try since she got such nice reviews. I have straight Asian hair and I needed a haircut for my wedding. I was extremely nervous about going to a western salon again since to be honest no matter how great and expensive the place, they always seem to screw up my hair and I never get the cut I want, and always have to head to an asian salon for a 2nd cut. I was hoping this would be different this time. But it wasn't. The cut I would say is below average considering she charges $99 for a cut, I was expecting alot more. She gives a nice blowdry and when it was styled by her it did look good, but when I went home, slept over night and then woke up the next day it didn't look so great. And when I washed it I realized it was an average cut covered up by a styled blowdry. Which I told her I never style my hair, I just wash and go. For a good cut, you should be able to wash it and your hair just bounces in to shape, thats how it should be anyways and it wasn't. The layers on one side is slightly shorter than the other side, and the bottom of my hair should be one length but one side is slightly longer.. I examined this for hours in the mirror and yes, its slightly longer on one side. Normally, I would live with it, but its for my wedding so I have to get another cut. Of course you want things perfect for you wedding. So off I go to my trust y and much cheaper asian salon, at least I will get a haircut I can wear for a few months. Though she did say if I had a problem to give her a call to be fair, but the cut was not so great so I am not going back. Lucia might be good for people with slightly curly or wavy hair, but for straight hair, especially Asian I wold give her a pass. I have to give her such a score because I asked her if she could cut Asian hair and she said yes, and I think my hair should have been perfectly even at the bottom and it wasn't.

I've been getting cuts and colors from Yuval for over a year. The color is exactly what I want and the cuts are always terrific -- perfect for the office, yet current, fabulous and fun for the weeknights and weekends. More importantly, when I got married a month ago, he did a pre-wedding cut and style for my out-of-town mother, who is an extremely tough critic, has incredibly thick, very tough-to-style hair, and (due to a language barrier) was able to give him very little direction. She loved the results and looked better than I've ever seen her - she wishes that she was local so she could go to him regularly. Last but not least, Cally did up-dos for me and my three bridesmaids -- she was able to transform four very different hairtypes and hairlengths (layered/thick/Asian, short/straight/blond, curly/frizzy/brown, thin/long/Asian) into beautiful up-dos that suited each of our very different face shapes. It was exactly what each of us wanted - not overdone, but understated and elegant. We looked and felt extraordinary.

Over the years I had the best and the worst of salon services, until i decided to go to Leonard Golino Salon. Leonard is the best professional, friendly and highly skilled individual. I loved the way he colored my hair. The consultation was very comfortable and very talented. Salon is very hip and has a very relaxing style. I will definitely go back and also suggest that all my friends see Leonard

I had my hair cut by Leonard last week and could not be happier! He is a talented and funny guy that makes you feel comfortable in his great Chelsea salon. Many salons in the city make men feel strange to be there, but Leonard makes everyone feel at ease. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun. Feel your stress slip away as you are served wine and listen to great music. Leonard listens to what you say and comes up with something new that you can maintain day to day. He 's not on salon "auto pilot" cranking out one cookie cutter style after another. He develops individual looks for his clintele. The whole staff seem to be happy to be working with such a talented funny man. I will absolutely continue to go to the Leonard Golino salon!

I've been seeing Yuval for over a year and I just found out about CitySearch, I would have written him a review MONTHS AGO had I known I could, since I will NEVER be going to get my hair done by ANYONE ELSE!

For starters, EVERYONE in the salon is friendly and fun and the could-be-regular or even scary hair experience has become fun and something I look forward to. Yuval is the best. He always listens, he's talented and he knows what he is doing more than any other stylist I had in the past. He is very creative and loves to enjoy what he is doing and so change is always welcomed. His talent for fashion and current trends is impeccable and more than anything, he makes sure that whatever style he gives you fits you physically as well as fits your lifestyle. You can really feel he styles YOU and doesn't just cut automatically. I don't spend too much time on my hair and he knows it as he is giving me styles that are easy to manage. His tips will surprise you and are extremely easy to follow... I can't ask for anything more.

What can I say... it's very refreshing to walk into a hair salon and feel no cattiness, no attitude. At Leonard Golino, you can see that all the stylists get along with each other, what a concept!!! They actually enjoy working there and love each other.

I always make sure to make my appointment before a dinner date or an event or a night out because I already know Yuval will make me look so great, I always walk out of there in a good mood, full of confidence and, yes, I always get compliments, that hasn't failed yet.

So whatever you're looking for: from classy to very edgy (Yuval gives AMAZING edgy, young, funky cuts, I see his famous Mohawks every time I am in there) I say Yuval is the best. I am very glad to write this review and actually - I now going to make an appointment!

I first went here after recommendations on CitySearch and visited Cally. Cally gave me an AMAZING haircut that I loved. I went back a second time and she gave me another great cut, though it wasn't exactly what I asked for. I went back a third time and she gave me this cut that wasn't remotely close to what I asked for. I asked for a trim of my shag-style cut. I came out with some sort of bob that was SUPER SHORT. While she does a beautiful cut, you have to be really careful that she gives you what you ask for. I'm terribly unhappy with this cut. So while Cally is an unbelievable stylist, keep an eye on how short she goes!

I've been going to this salon since it had another name yrs. ago. I always liked my haircut no matter who was doing the cutting--I had a couple of regular cutters over the yrs. Although I was always happy, I secretly wanted Leonard to be my haircutter. I didn't switch because there was nothing wrong with my haircuts and I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
Well, I finally got to have Leonard after a few staff changes.

Leonard ultimately became the owner of the salon and the name changed. I'm still a loyal customer. Each person who works there is nice and each of the hair cutters seem to have a following. In other words, I'm not the only happy customer. They must be doing something right.

Leonard is not only nice to clients, he speaks so respectfully to his employees. That is very impressive! He's talented AND he's a good person. I've known him a long time and I can tell you that Leonard deserves any and every good thing in life.

Although I was always happy, I secretly wanted Leonard to be my haircutter. I didn't switch because there was nothing wrong with my haircuts and I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
Well, I finally got to have Leonard after a few staff changes.

Leonard ultimately became the owner of the salon and the name changed. I'm still a loyal customer. Each person who works there is nice and each of the hair cutters seem to have a following. In other words, I'm not the only happy customer. They must be doing something right.

Leonard is not only nice to clients, he speaks so respectfully to his employees. That is very impressive! He's talented AND he's a good person. I've known him a long time and I can tell you that Leonard deserves any and every good thing in life.

I've wasted money all over town looking for somebody who could give me an extraordinary cut, someone who could give my coiff a little extra pizazz, I found it at Leonard Golino. Leonard was recommended by a friend of mine (they said I could get free wine). I figure if I'm going to get another mediocre cut, I might as well get a drink too. I don't know if it was the wine but my stylist Gianina made me look hot. I even got compliments in the street (and I'm an ugly man). I'm sober right now and I still look hot. I highly recommend Leonard's salon, everyone is really cool there and welcoming and if Gianina can work magic with ugly, imagine what she could do for you.

Pros: attentive and understanding staff

Cons: that there aren't more salons like this one

I've had 3 haircuts so far and unfortunately haven't had the same great end result as others have had. I agree the people are so unpretentious here and make you feel really comfortable. The cut just doesn't seem fresh or do anything for me. I have had better haircuts elsewhere. I have also had worse. The cut just doesn't wow me or anyone that sees me. In fact, people at work aren't impressed. It's a shame because I really want an amazing cut that suits me, and was hoping this would be the place. The prices have gone up and it's really out of my budget, so I will give them one more try. I have to say my friend got a great cut from Victor, who is such a nice guy (she also has amazing hair to begin with). I don't want to change stylists because I don't want to insult anyone.

I've been trying to find "my" salon for the last 2 years, since I moved back to NYC, and I've finally found it! Leonard Golino's is absolutely incredible!!! The salon environment is so friendly and energetic -- and the staff amazing. This past weekend, Lucia gave me the best haircut of my life. Without a doubt. I have long, thick hair and I tend to be slightly "haircut averse," having been burned by a lot of "experimental" stylists who don't listen and just give you the cut they want. I've tried out a number of top salons in NYC -- most of which boasted aesthetics and name over great cuts -- and no one's been able to give me a cut that retained my length, fit my features, AND had edge/personality. Enter Lucia. She not only listened and talked me through my pre-cut hair condition -- and what she was going to do -- she let me practice blowing out/styling my hair after the cut to make sure I knew what to do on my own. She gave me a great, layered, edgy cut that everyone loves. Finally, I've found my favorite NYC stylist - Lucia - and a NYC salon home - Leonard Golino. If you have long hair, make an appointment with her now!

My husband and I are regulars at Leonard Galinos salon since a couple of years back. Since the day we set our feet in the salon we were sold. There is always great energy, not just from Leonard Galino himself but from everyone in the salon.
And to top it all off we always walk out feeling and looking great!

I'm a 40 year-old mother of 3 who used to be a pretty hip New York chick. It was time for a day of me, me, me, so I planned the 1st Annual "Day of Me." The day started with an appointment at Leonard Golino -- based on the Citysearch reviews I'd read. I didn't request anyone when I called, but was assigned to Tres.

The appointment was pretty early by Saturday morning in NY standards, 11:30, but still, I was looking forward to my wine! None was offered. Nothing was offered, actually -- no coffe, water, tea, nothing.

Tres was sitting in the waiting area when I came in and took me right back to be shampooed. I told him I was a Citysearch junkie and was there for the best haircut of my life. The pressure was on! He told me my hair was great and that I should grow it a bit longer, between shoulder and chin, and keep the layers. I was sort of disappointed. I wanted some revelationary piece of wisdom, but there it was. My hair was my hair.

I told him about my special day and we decided to dry my hair straight for the occasion. He was worried that after my massage, I'd be all oily, and wondered if I could get back down for a touch-up. We decided that wouldn't work, time-wise, and he asked me what I'd brought with me. When I told him I'd forgotten my round brush, he gave me one of his. I thought it was a wonderful gesture.

All I can say is that when I walked out of there I felt FABULOUS. My sister-in-law was floored. She told me I was strutting, and I was. I looked great, and I felt great.

The rest of the day included lunch at Pastis, drinks at the St. Regis, a facial and massage at the Remede spa at the St. Regis, a room at the St. Regis and dinner with my husband at Country.

I'm still glowing from the day a month later, and my hair is still looking great. What Tres did was simple, but effective. There may not be any miracles, but they really do work wonders. I'll be going back to Leonard Golino, and taking my husband with me.
