My first citysearch review, I just had to write about my great experience with Rodney. Every so often I come across someone who is a true artist in their craft, and that is Rodney at Color Tess.

I went in last week upset over a dye job (blonde to brunette) that had gone terribly wrong with someone else. It had turned out muddy and flat. Rodney overheard my predicament and immediately - much like a knight in shining armor - swooped in and reassured me that he could make it better. He used a very gentle solution to strip my hair several times of the dark color. He was so honest and knowledgeable of what can be done and how it would turn out. It ended up still dark but SO much better, with shine and depth and with my previous highlights shining through. I had gone in there miserable, barely recognizing myself in the mirror and he restored me and literally brought the color back to my face.

During my experience with Rodney, I also noticed other people who he worked on and can say that every one who left his chair looked like they stepped out of a magazine, with beautiful, shiny, flowing hair that was cut and styled so well. I highly recommend him - the guy knows hair.

I have been getting my hair done at Tess Color Hair Salon many times. Whenever I leave the salon I'm very happy. The salon has a friendly atmosphere. The owner, Tess is a wonderful person, always so welcoming and hospitable. The staff is extremely attentive and without attitude - I always feel valued.
The biggest draw for me are the stylists themselves, one in particular Ginger, who is gentle and caring, but the words that best describe her are confident precision. Her experience and knowledge of hair is evident, she is easy to talk to and most of all I trust her to make me look my best! Whether I go blonder or darker it does not matter because my hair always looks great! My hair color has never looked better and I get compliments everytime!
If you are looking for a great hair color, hair cut or blowdry I would suggest Tess Color Hair Salon! You will love it and definitely recommend the salon to friends!

Pros: Best color in the city

.

I was visiting the city for a while. I thought I would be a good opportunity to get a haircut. So I was looking for a good salon. I found Color Tess Salon. I called to make the appointment. They scheduled my appointment with Antonio. From the moment I walked in the door I felt comfortable and at home. Everyone in the salon was friendly, warm and welcoming.
Antonio gave me consultation. He listened very carefuly. Consequently he gave me a great haircut. Antonio is innovative, concerned and talented stylist.
It was a pleasure going to Color Tess Salon.
Thank you, see you next time.

Entire experience was bad - I visited Tess Color Hair Salon as a walk in and my initial reaction was that it was - OK. It was not the cleanest looking place but the price that they quoted me was in the ballpark of what I wanted to pay. I sat down, asked again for the price (my stylist quoted me the same that the receptionist did) so I proceeded to get color done. While sitting with the foils in my hair, I was moved about 5 times asked to sit in different places while the stylist worked on a bunch of other clients (she was way overworked). She never even looked at my hair to see how the color was processing. After a while, it seemed as if she spotted me still sitting there with foils in my head (the stylist had definitely forgotten about me) and pointed toward the sinks crowded with people. So, I walked over to the sinks as awkwardly got someones attention to rinse my hair. I then was told to wait another 20 minutes in the chair by the sink while my "stylist" finished her most current client. Finally I got to see my hair in the mirror as it looked as if nothing had been done except a 2 hour shampoo. My hair was the EXACT same as when I walked in. I politely mentioned to the stylist that it looked the same, not much different at all and she was actually being very nice back to me (as if she agreed and was confused why it looked so similar). Then Tess (the owner) came over and asked what the issue was. I politely told her that i was just saying that my hair looked untouched - at which point Tess starts screaming that I's "sooo much blonder and it absolutely looks differently." She went as far as to tell me that I was treating her terribly - woa...my voice was not raised at all and I was being beyond polite. I then just wanted to get out of there, my head half wet and all. I went to pay and she said that will be...and threw out a number $50 more than I had been quoted. I politely asked why and she said "because we used a gloss" - I never asked for any gloss! I work in hospitality and I understand how to treat people - this was the absolute WORST experience dealing with clients that I have ever seen and from the owner of all people. Do not go here. It's a waste of time and money.

Cons: Entire experience was bad

.

I don't agree with review below. Every time I visit Color tess I am always greeted with a smile and always accommodated. Tess is the nicest salon owner! I do my high lights and color here along with weekly blowdrys and have never had a bad experience! I recommend anyone in the neighborhood to give this place a try. Rita is a top notch colorist though everyone there is so professional that I can trust anyone to make my hair look pretty and sleek.

Cons: nothing major.

I just got off the phone with the owner of the salon and I am shocked at how not intune she is to her customers or customer service. I have been going to Color Tess for my cut and color with RIta and I could not be happier with her work- infact so much so that I have refered 5 people.
I have in the past gotten the Brazilian Kertain treatment done at a different salon. last week I went to Color Tess for that and Laura did a fabulous job. However the rest of the experience was so appauling!

I had a 3pm appoint on a Friday. I walked in and it seamed no one was aware of my appointment. Laura was able to do it regardless which I appreciated. However after the 3 hour treatment, I was told by the receptionist that I really wasn't supposed to come in on a Friday and the only reason I was "lucky enough" that they let me stay was because they weren't as busy as usual. This annoyed me slightly but let it go. Then on Sunday I got a call telling me that I was late for my appointment at 3pm. So clearly someone at the salon had screwed up. I still have card with my appointment day and time that was written by the woman who made the appointment for me Friday June 5th 3:00pm..
I called Tess (the owner of the salon) to let her know the mistake and just that I was a little put off by the way the receptionist had approached the conversation about Fridays not allowing me to have the Brazilian treament done.
I will continue to go to Rita for my color only becasue I think she is that good. But I hate to think I am putting money into Tess's pocket because she has no idea how to treat a customer. The people I have refered to that salon wont be bringing their business there anymore unless its for Rita.... I hope Rita goes to a different salon soon!
In this economy they are lucky for every customer, but someone should train that owner in cusomter care.... ASAP...

Cons: TERRIBLE CUSOTMER SERVICE

I discovered this salon several years ago when I needed color correction and they were wonderful. I have always had a great experience at this salon. Rita is the professional I've been using and not only is she extremely talented and devoted, she is also a lovely, charming and supremely focused person. I can't recommend this salon enough. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and there is consistently sincere and caring attitude displayed by all who work there!

I used to went to very expensive salons like Frederick Fekkai or Oscar Blandi. My friend recommended Rita. She goes to her for over 5 years. Her hair always look healthy and has beautiful color. I had cut my budget so I tried Rita. I tell you the true Rita is very good and the salon looks very upskill and beautiful. Staff is professional and my highlighlts and color look better than ever: very healthy, shiny as I expected. Thank you, see you again.

I have been going to Color Tess for over two years and my colorist and stylist is Gloria. I have received more compliments about Gloria's work than I have about any of my previous stylists. Gloria uses color and highlights that are just right for my skin tone; and her styling makes me look and feel younger. All my friends consistently compliment me on the color and the style. Gloria uses very good judgment is deciding what looks good. She is also very flexible and receptive to comments and requests. I recommend Gloria very highly; you are in good hands with her.

Pros: Color and Styling

Color Tess Salon is fantastic. I starting going there while I was undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. Tess found the perfect shade of strawberry blonde and I was thrilled. Since then, I have seen almost everyone in the salon for my weekly blowout. Everyone is professional and fabulous, but my very favorite is Marina! Marina has a great, warm personality. She is the best at full service whether it is color, cut or even shampoo. Basically, I get compliments every single day on my hair. It is healthy and an incredible shade of red. Red is really hard to do well, so maybe that is why Marina is so good at it. Redheads rule! Visit Tess Color salon for a a fabulous cut or color.

I have finally found someone who gives highlights that are worth the time and money. I have gotten so many compliments on my hair since I started seeing Marina. She is meticulous and passionate about her work and always pleasant. The rest of the staff is also attentive and the shampoo is accompanied by a great scalp massage. All this at a reasonable price with no attitude. I love it.

I continue to go to Color Tess thanks mostly to Marina. She is such a good hair stylist and colorist that I always walk out looking like a movie star. On top of that, she has such an amazing way about her, she is so warm and welcoming. She is the only stylist that I have ever gone to that I have looked forward to seeing. She helped me with long term solutions to my damaged hair that had really lost it's gloss and beauty due to damage and using the wrong products. I highly recommend her and her prices are reasonable too.

I have been looking for a decently-priced salon in NYC for the past few years and randomly found Colortess a few weeks ago. I'm still getting complements on my hair. Marina did an absolutely outstanding job on my shoulder-length hair. She listened carefully and gave me the exact cut I wanted (most stylists end up making it shorter than I want, or adding too many layers). She suggested a shampoo and conditioner that might be better for my hair, but did not push me into buying it. I did anyway, and my hair looks so much better as a result (Redken Body Full). She is kind and smart, and a wonderful stylist. I have recommended her to all of my friends. She is fantastic!

This is a great salon - I go to Marina, and she is the best! She listens to what I want and always delivers a great haircut. I've been to 3-4 salons in New York before this and was always disappointed with my haircut. Color Tess is 30 blocks from my apartment, but Marina makes the trip worth while. I've been going here for a year and a half and plan to as long as I am in New York (regardless of where I live).

If you're looking for a stylist who honestly knows what she's doing, and can give you the best head of highlights in town, go to Marina. She makes sure your hair looks natural, and takes her time to assess what your look should be based on seasonality and your lifestyle. Every time I leave I feel like a million dollars, and so will you.

Marina, Marina, Marina! Thank God I finally found you! After going up and down the Upper East Side, I tried many different hair salons. It was a miracle that I walked into Color Tess. The place is clean and the employees are friendly. I was given to Marina, who looked very professional and personable. Marina cut my hair and put in highlights. She did exactly what I asked for. She is very patient and understanding and listened to what I was looking for. The time passed so quickly because she is very lively and her conversation is entertaining. I was so happy that after I looked at myself in the mirror, I had tears in my eyes....I felt totally made over. I would recommend trying Color Tess with Marina to all of my friends. I thank you Marina....I don't have to look anywhere else.

My boy friend got his hair cut with Antonio over the weekend. He looked soooooo hot that I didnot want to share him with anyone for a couple of days! This morning I met Antonio and he did his magic on me. My hair cut is perfect and he even taught me how to style my own hair. One word to describe him: Genious!!!

I walked into to Color Tess not knowing anything about it. A woman named Marina cut my hair and she did an absolutely amazing job. I have curly hair, so it is difficult to deal with, but she did a great job thinning my hair and creating more layers. I highly recommend Marina because she really listened to what I wanted, and took it step by step with me.

My hair is very curly and frizzy, and it used to take me 2 hours to do my own hair or to visit a hair salon twice a week. A few weeks ago I ran into my friend and I was amazed how shiny and healthy her hair looked. She told me she had BRAZILIAN KERATIN TREATMENT done at Color Tess Salon. Now, after visiting Color Tess Salon and having the treatment done, I have shiny frizz-free and managable hair and it takes me 25-30 min to style my own hair. My stylist, Luba was wonderful and assured me that they only use the best products in the market. Now I have one less thing to worry about!

I never imagined that I would be doing my color and highlights anywhere other than Frederic Fekkai anymore, but my close friend just had to talk me into going to see Rita at Color Tess, now I cant imagine going back to Fekkai! Rita was warm and welcoming and understood exactly what I wanted. My color and highlights have never been this great, I get compliments from everyone at work and everyone asks me where I get my hair done. I now tell everyone to go see Rita at Color Tess who is simply the best!!!

Wow, I should have read the comment before mine and I would have not gone.
Although I have had Gloria do highlights and low lights many times on my hair, the last time (2 months ago) was really bad.
My hair looked gray ( I am not gray) and even my stylist ( someone who cuts my hair at another salon), commented about the poor quaility of the work. Although she offered that I could come back and fix it, I neither had the time nor the inclination nor the desire to put more product in my hair.
So, I had decided to just live with it and wait to my next high/low lighting.
Being nice and optomistic , I went back again today hoping that the last highlighting was just someone's bad day.
Wrong, it looked equally bad and after several attempts ( and hours) of toners and lighters and product and more product, the gray is out but my hair is not looking too good and it cost a great deal.
Sorry, Gloria and ColorTess, I am not waiting for 3 strikes to consider you out.

Cons: inconsistent work; expensive

I had gone to Color Tess 4 times,and every time I was given a diffrent price for the same cut and color. I never can use the same stylist. Due to they are no longer working there. And this really upsets me. And when I call to make an appointment with a certain stylist they are always unavailable or off that day. So I learned to take my business elsewhere!

I have been searching the entire city to find the right place to get all my waxing done not realizing that the perfect place is right around the corner from my home. Over the weekend, I went to my favorite salon"color tess" to get my hair done. Luba did an amazing job coloring and cutting my hair. Before I left, she told me she also does the waxing and threading. I gave it a try and I'm so glad I did!! My eyebrows have never been in a better shape than they are now. I'm definitely going back to see Luba!

Ben is the greatest stylist I ever went to. He is outgoing, conversational and funny. I usually go to high end salons but I decided to give Color Tess a try since I am local and my highlights, color and cut were better than ever before. Its a great salon, they were very friendly and timely. I enjoyed this salon more than any other and I cant tell you how much I love my hair. Thank You soo much Ben, I'll see you soon. ;-)

Two weeks ago I had my hair done by Rodney at Color Tess who spent so much time and care in helping sort out the mess that was my hair. After going to several difference salons over the past two years my hair was bleached out and looked unhealthy. After going to Rodney, my hair is back to being fabulous! I have gotten so many compliments on my hair and it is all due to the brilliance that is Rodney! I urge anyone with a hair emergency or otherwise to go to Color Tess and request Rodney.

I use Rodney every week for a cut and/or dry. He is simply wonderful. I have quite straight, thin hair and he manages to give it volume-something most other operators have been unable to do all my life!
He has an excellent eye and is detail-oriented,great qualities for a hair dresser. He is reliable and punctual and I have sent my sister and my nieces to the Salon to see him.

The environment at Color Tess is low-key, and relaxed. The service is wonderful and friendly, great shampoo girl too! Ben has been doing my hair for years...I am so happy that he has found his way to this great salon.

I made a 6:15 appointment for a hair cut. My intention for this cut was to donate my hair to Locks of Love. I get there at 6:10pm. It is not until 6:50pm that I am told to get a robe and have my hair washed (meanwhile, 2 people who came in after me were called before me). I inform them that they cannot wash my hair as donated hair must be dry. I then sit around for yet another 15 minutes. The hair cut was nice (the left side is about 1/4" longer than the right, my mother will fix that) but nothing spectacular. But they made me late for a dinner meeting with my boss. If you have plans scheduled for after you appointment, push them back by at least 30 minutes.
The staff was cold and the salon was too hot. This was not worth $78.

I went to see Rodney and granted he does a good job he is SOOO expensive. He charged me $266 for a half of head of highlights. Everything like toner is charged separately when it should be included in the highlights price. I found this place to be a huge rip-off and Rodney has an attitude problem. From these kind of prices you would think you were at some fancy salon but its just a regular salon on second avenue.

I have been going to my stylist, Ben, since 1990 and he is the best! He always knows what to do with my hairstyle, even when I don't! My color is always perfect, and it lasts a very long time. It is easy to get an appointment at Color Tess, and the staff (besides my favorite Ben) is always pleasant and helpful. I hightly recommend Color Tess and Ben!!

I work as an entertainment producer in Las Vegas, New York, and internationally and my hair is very important to first impressions and quite difficult to maintain. Was I totally surprised to discover Rodney Haines at Color Tess! His professional approach far exceeded my expectations for expert knowedge, advanced skill level, and really incredible personality. I plan on seeing Rodney to do my hair everytime I am in the city. I highly recomend him!! Well worth the trip to the upper East side. Rodney seems more knowledgeable than others at the salon -- experience counts for excellence. Very clean environment, prompt, willing to work with my flexible schedule. My clients and my friends have said I look different, more attractive, even younger! (Ha, ha). Check out Rodney for color & expert cut.

Cons: Wish they would open up in Las Vegas

Ask for Rodney Haines for a great cut and color. I started seeing Rodney when the salon opened over a year ago and still see him even though I now live in Greenwich Village. My single process color, cut and blow-dry come out perfect every time. Shortly after one visit, a co-worker who doesn't know I color my hair commented on how shiny my hair was (shiny in a good sense).

I went to Daniel at Color Tess and he was amazing! I have dark brown hair and I wanted strawberry blonde/brown hair- This is extemely difficult to do with someone who has such darkly colored hair. Daniel was amazing and patient and really took his time. I have been going to Dop Dop paying 500 dollars for results no nearly as good. For full head of highlights (Almost all my hair highlighted) It cost me 200 dollars. Which is pretty resonable. I also got a 10% citysearch discount. Color Tess is amazing. Do yourself a favor and give it a try!!!

I made an emergency appointment with this salon on a Saturday evening. They got me in right away and my stylist Ben, did an AMAZING highlighting job. It's honestly the best my hair has ever looked. I highly recommend both my stylist and the salon.

Just moved to the east side six months ago and have already been to 3 different places locally to get my highlights done. I was beginning to think that there were no decent salons until I tried Color Tess. I got a full head of highlights that look incredible. My hair 3 weeks later is still the exact color that I wanted it to be. If you're a nervous person when it comes to your hair (as I am) don't be afraid of this salon. My hair is incredible and the place is clean and the service is friendly. I highly recommend!
