    actually zero or minus- bought a Lifebooker for two haircuts and blowdries- went to make an appointment - some rude man answers the phone with a bad attitude- he says he has no appointment except 12 pm tomorrow - I said I work- he said the next evening appointment is late january - so my vouchers expire in 6 months and if I go late january I had to come back for second haircut after four months which is not my habit. Well I needed a haircut swo I said to make an appt January and he asked for the voucher number to cash it- I was appalled- I do not pay for a service unless I receive the service and I asked him do you pay for services before you get anything- he was just nasty and rude and looking to take my money and give nothing- and he told me to get a refund from lifebooker- so i asked him why do you bother- I and most people do not need to waste my time with this crap- ther are hundreds of other salons which act happy to see me- if you just want to be a criminal and take my money - theres law enforcement for that- i quickly hit the return loot button at lifebooker and the matter is solved - if I am paying you for a service- I want an appointment and will pay you after I receive that service decently- This owner asks like he is entitled and he has alot of nerve to behave like that- do not buy from lifebooker or shampoo ave b- hes not getting my business ever

    Overprocessed and damaged my hair by leaving bleach in for too long. The color only lasted for 3 days then went back to the bleached color. My hair was beautiful before and every salon I went to afterwards just to see their reaction told me they damaged my hair and that they did not NEED to bleach/strip my hair to achieve the color I had wanted. They only did so to capitalize and make $365 for the services. They ruined my hair and I had to get treatments because my hair was dead afterwards. Went back to complain and the owner Carlos was a major dick and told me this is what I had wanted and that I got what I paid for. I have filed complaints with the dept of health for nyc salons(speaking with an investigator) and the better business bureau. They will NOT get away with the damage they caused to my hair and the terrible customer service they provided me when I had asked them to make it right. I have many friends who work in PR and I have a big mouth so I will make sure I let everyone I know and more about this terrible place!!!

    I bought the Brazilian Blowout through Lifebooker. I also booked a haircut. I went to Aut and she did an amazing job! I came in with extremely frizzy damaged hair. I am multi-ethnic so my texture can be really hard to deal with. I left there with silky, lovely locks and she somehow even managed to keep most of the length. I would recommend this place to anyone!

    Totally happy!!!

    Marylin, the manager was 'booking' my appointment for today (this after trying to book for a MONTH and a half - seriously). They don't open until noon, do not answer the phone and actually request that you email them only to inform that you should call for an appt. Really?? If it wasn't so funny it would be sad that this is how people have to take advantage of a "deal" from Lifebooker.

    Next, after I carefully explained to MARYLIN, the MANAGER that I have been trying to get in for a simple color and cut with a recommended stylist she informed that she was once again unavailable but I may try another stylist today at 4pm. "Okay, let's do this". ONLY THING is NOW that upon confirming the appointment before hanging up I mentioned my lifebooker certificate as instructed to and that is when Marylin informed that I could no longer have the appointment today. WTF? And, I do not use foul language, but this was just inane.
    I then continued in friendly way to explain that it would really be appreciated if she could make it work as am going on holiday and have tried for all of this time and she steadfastly refused and informed "lifebooker huh?, no we book that differently". "You cannot have this appointment". Nothing like a deal with a shitty salon that makes the deal feel like nothing short of a hassle. No Shampoo avenue b for this otherwise high end salon user, nor will I hope it be for anyone else to use a company with no customer service. Did I mention that I called back briefly so that I could have a name of whom refused this and Marylin in a 'in your face obnoxious type of way that only certain type of folks choose to reply' exaggerated her name, spelled it loudly and made it all to clear - I will leave out my real sentiments. I hope this helps others who are can choose from so many other wonderful places to have your hair done.

    I went in for Highlights and have a very difficult head of hair to color and from the moment I walked into the salon I was loving every minute of my experience. The hospitable greeting from behind desk and to the nice bottled water i desperately needed in the city heat my first experience at Shampoo Avenue B . A good friend of mine recommended the salon and I am extremely particular about my hair (neurotic one might say). Sylyse, was beyond helpful in comforting with my nerves and assured me that I would leave loving my new hair color and I did!!!! I would go back to Sylyse every day of the week if I could from cut, to color to blow dry I never knew I could be so happy! THANKS SHAMPOO AVE B

    Went to get the brazilian keratin treatment..... was sooo pleasantly surprised since I didn't hold out much hope for my hair...I walked out with the softest, shiniest coolest hair EVER..... I would recommend Janaan... she cleaned up the mess the last stylist from a salon in PA left me with....
    so.... go there.... see Janaan--- that woman knows what she's doing.....
    the staff was incredibly sweet and attentive... love this place

    I purchased 2 deals for Shampoo Avenue B through the livingsocial website. I went for cut and color and scheduled a keratin treatment with Jenni, and without dishing all the dirt, did not have a good experience either time...at all.

    Fortunately, I later on spoke to one of the managers (Naomi) who was extremely apologetic and helpful, and scheduled an appt for me with Karuna (one of the owners). I was very happy with my visit and would recommend Karuna (and her assistant, Anthony) without hesitation. From what I could tell, the other stylists are really great as well.

    I would usually not go back to a place where I had a bad first experience, but the level of customer service displayed by the owners and mgmt was so impressive, that it was well worth it.

    Also...the keratin (brazilian) treatment that they do does NOT require you to go 3 days without washing ur hair or working out...they wash it and blowdry right there in the salon. Also, if they are running a few minutes behind schedule, you can go to the cafe next door and have a complimentary coffee or tea!

    I love Shampoo Avenue B. The place has a low-key, rock n roll vibe without pretense or high expense. If you want a great hair cut and/or color, go to Amelia. She is super-skilled and does it all well: from a basic trim to far out color and style. The other staff are also super talented. Check it out.

    I LOVE Karuna and Shampoo Avenue B! Karuna was recommended to me by a friend and no one's touched my hair color since! After years of wasting my time and money with hairdressers who are afraid of color I finally found my hair genius. I have bright magenta chunky highlights throughout my hair and I absolutely love it. Karuna was the first to do exactly what I wanted...give me super bright, bold color, as far away from "natural" as possible. I mean, I was born with natural so why would I bother? She's amazing with choosing the placement and density of the highlights and a true artist at mixing colors. On top of it, she's a super cool chick and a sweetheart! Oh yeah, the salon has a great laid-back vibe and the DJ is amazing!

    The stylist I have known for years has just moved here from Mudhoney. She is fantastic and I will follow her wherever she goes. She has got me through 2 major changes in style. She is professional, creative, and endlessly optimistic. I also come away feeling restored. The salon was calm, efficient and had great music.

    I went to Shampoo for the 2nd time a couple of weeks ago and I am not disappointed that I decided to go back. Harley did both my cut and color and he is truly an artist. He takes his time and walks you through everything he is going to do for you.

    The other stylists are also very nice and based on the work that I was able to see them perform they are amazing as well. I would love to try Domini the next time I am there, she truly has a rock & roll vibe going.

    Thanks for making me feel awesome!

    My boyfriend went into shampoo to get a cut (that he really needed) and came home looking F-ing HOT! I had never seen such a detailed haircut on a man. It had tons of texture and it still looks good. It looks especially good after we have quality time ;-)
    But, it also looks amazing when he's all clean and groomed for work. Jenny gave my man an awesome cut and I can't wait to come in and get mine.
    Thanks Jenny!

    I found the salon through citysearch and I was by far satisfied with the result. I made an appointment with Melissa who is very professional, kind, and will listen to what you want. She did an amazing job cutting my hair, it looked awesome! She used a straight razor in combination with shears which I have not seen before. Hands down the best salon in the area.

    The first salon I tried in New York and was really pleased with the results, I like the option of doing something abit different with my hair so wanted to try these guys.
    Harley did my hair and really I just wanted to make sure for my first time there that he understood my hair and cut how I asked. I have thick curly hair that's quite short so the layers need to be perfect. He did everything that asked, so i'll be going back for a cut and colour next time.

    Ultimately its the cut the matters and it was good, but he didn't dry my hair very well, maybe that's a curly hair thing- its always better when you do it yourself.

    Also..is it just me?- but i like to be offered a cup of coffee or tea and i didnt get one :-(

    The first time I went to Shampoo I originally went for a cut with Harley, but my old colorist messed up my color and my roots were a bright red. I asked if they could correct that. I walked out with a fabulous cut and a beautiful chestnut brown color. I have gone back several times and have used Daniel and Domini as well as Harley. They are all amazing. You can't get a bad cut or color in this place. The staff is warm and welcoming and they really listen. I should mention that I have curly hair and they really know how to cut curls. Go and Enjoy!

    This salon is super cool, unassuming, and comfortable. I took the F to second ave, and just walked from there. It's in the east village which is cool cuz you don't have to travel to a neighborhood you would never go to just for your haircut. My stylist Melissa really knew what she was
    doing and paid alot of attention to detail while cutting my hair. The finished product was absolutely gorgeous. I could definitely maintain this look at home as well, it just went into place, because it was cut so well.
    Everyone is saw there left looking GREAT. Also, really reasonable prices for haircuts! If you want to look young, hot, modern, and rock, this is your place!!!

    I am writing this review for my Mom Nell who is in NYC visiting. She recently got a cut/color from Harley and was thrilled with the results. Everyone agree that her hair is FINALLY the perfect color and got fantastic cut that is flattering and that suits her face. She is 65 and it just goes to show that a top notch stylist can do everything from a very classic look to cutting egde/modern. My Mom is now going around telling her friends how important an excellent cut/color is and it's funny how happy she is with her new look and especially when she is complimented. Great job and thanks for making my Mom look and feel great!

    I used to have my haircut at Oscar Bond salon, and followed her when she started st Shampoo. ALthough the salon was nice, it was small and kinda out of the way for me to get to. THANK GOD she moved again and is now working at DE DERARDINI'S. Its on 21st between 6th and 7th and close to so many trains. I went there once already and it is def s step up. They serve wine and espresso and gave a wonderful scalp massage at the shampoo bowl. I was happy that the receptionist at Shampoo even gave me the number 212-967-0927. That was nice of her!

    I love this place!!! I was just reading all the wonderful reviews and saw a negative review that i just HAD to negate! I find it hard to believe that ANYONE at Shampoo Ave b could be rude. I have been going to Daniel for color and cuts since it opened and they all treat me like family. I have sent 6 of my friends in and they all continue to go because it is indeed attitude free and a pleasure. If you think relaxed and unpretentious is rude then you should get your hair done on the upper east side.

    Cons: No nearby coffee shops :O)

    I went to see Daniel in September for the Brazilian treatment - I am STILL loving it. Thank you Daniel - I think about you every morning when it takes me all of 4 minutes to dry my hair straight. Having had 2 japanse treatments a few years ago, I think Brazilian is the way to go. Granted my hair has grown in a lot, but the majority is still super easy to straighten, and the big benefit is that it looks great curly when I air dry. Also - I've had awesome haircuts here - EXCELLENT and fun place. Daniel rocks.

    I just got a great haircut. The salon was a bit busy and I had to wait a while. I was getting frustrated until my name was called and I was escorted to the back by Harley (the owner) Within 5 minutes I had forgotten all about the wait and I began to feel very comfortable. Harley appoligized for the delay and it doesn't matter now anyway. All that matters is my new haircut. Yeow! Thank you!

    I have shoulder length medium blonde hair with bleached out tips. I don't know about the rude thing that the below reviewers mentioned, but i had an awesome experience. First off, my hair has never looked better in my life. I didn't have to use a brush on my hair for a few weeks. then after that, although i needed to blowdry my hair out with a brush, it took me 1/2 the time. It slowly grew out after that until it became unmanageable once again, so i had it redone. The process basically made my hair feel the same way as it did when i was a little girl. Harley did my hair and he is an absolutely amazing stylist. I always have great results with him. He's nothing but nice as well as the rest of the staff.

    I went in with a great cut that had just gotten long. I asked for a trim - lift the back and slight trim on the rest. I showed two photographs of the exact style I wear. Keep the top layers long and pointed out the backwards wave on the sides - which create wings if it's too short. You guessed it. I left looking like a flying angel with giant wings out the side, the top layers lifted by multiple inches. And payed a small fortune for this. Live and learn

    Pros: Got in quickly, stylist spoke english

    I also didn't have a great experience there. I had BKT done, and I swear it only lasted about 2-3 weeks! I only wash my hair about once a week and I used sodium chloride free shampoo, so I know there were other factors involved. I also spent about $400. I can't afford to pay that kind of money for a treatment that doesn't hold. Most of the staff was nice, but the guy who did the BKT was so rude and unfriendly, I could not wait to get out there.

    Reconsider going here before you do. I went for the Brazilian Keratin Treatment twice. After paying $350 plus a 20% tip plus $30 for the special shampoo the stylist insisted I needed - you can't use a shampoo that has sodium chloride in it, I was treated horribly and rudely. First of all, the very shampoo he told me i needed since I can't use a shampoo with sodium chloride has guess what in it? You guessed it - sodium chloride. I only saw it after reading the ingredients two weeks after I was using it. The stylist tried to insist that there is no way it has sodium chloride in it. I showed him the bottle and he replied that no, he said I can't use shampoo with salt. Well, DUH sodium chloride is salt in any chemistry book in the world, not to mention every shampoo lists "sodium chloride" and not "salt."
    My hair only looked good for 3 weeks and after 2 months I was back to flat ironing every day to make my hair look decent. The stylist insisted the first time that the BKT lasts 3 to 4 months and the more damaged the hair the better it takes and the longer it lasts.When I merely tried to inform him nicely of how my hair had held up, he flipped out and said in a very defensive diva like manner:"Honey that is YOUR hair, not me. Just what I did last time, I am going to do again."
    He was VERY rude and accusatory when all I was tryiing to do was tell him how the treatment lasted the last time. I thought maybe he could change the timing of how long it sits on my hair or he could say "There isn't much more I can do. That is how your hair reacts." Not a whole drama induced, blown up reaction to my polite conversation as I originally had a smile on my face. When I am spending $350 for a hair process, I expect to at the least be treated civilly and with the same respect I give. The $350 I spend is for my hair to be manageable and it is not about your ego or diva like attitude.

    Save your money and spend it elsewhere where your patronage will be appreciated.

    I just went in for my third haircut with Karuna - which is a record for me at a single salon. She is the only stylist who has ever been able to make my long thick hair "not too conventional" and "not too hardcore". On my last visit, I trusted her to color my hair for the first time. I always thought my hair was too dark and it would be too much upkeep for color, but she she found the perfect balance. Ever since, I've become a total narcissist and can't stop looking in the mirror! Karuna is talented, funny and adorable, and Shampoo is unpretentious with a good mix of music.

    I just moved to New York from LA and I have been looking for a Salon and stylist that I love. (you should always LOVE your stylist). I went to Shampoo Ave B and i must say I am a believer! I went in to have the Brazilian Keratin Treatment because it is the only Salon that has a formula that allows you to wash your hair right after you get it done. Other salons have you leave the product in your hair for 4 days. That alone won me over. The treatment took about 3.2 hours ( I have long hair) and Karuna made sure to sing, chat and keep me awake the whole time. Other than freezing cold water that must be used to rinse the hair it was a painless experience that was well worth the money. Then when all was done and my hair was silky straight Karuna gave me a fabulous haircut that fixed what damage another salon had done. I would recommend it to anyone, as they pretty much do it all in this small salon with a lot of rock n roll character. All the stylists seem very down to earth. So all in all I give it an A+ and will be keeping Karuna as my stylist for sure.

    So my stylist Domini recently moved to Shampoo and since she is simply the best, of course I followed here there. First off, if anyone is looking for an awesome cut and/or color, you need to see Domini. Bring her an idea you have and if it won't work for you and your hair she will tell you, unlike most stylists who will do it for you, make it look good there, and then you can never reproduce it at home. Like the time I impulsively wanted to cut my hair super sort, Domini was there to remind me of my hair type...and needless to say the next morning I was SO glad I didn't do it. She will always work with you until you have found something you totally love. I trust her so much I just let her run with fun ideas, and they are always fresh and awesome. Having a stylist who actually gives a damn enough to tell you the truth can be hard to find...not to mention she is super fun!

    I also have to say how impressed I was by the actual salon. It feels true to it's East Village/Alphabet City location, with great music and art on the walls (that you can buy without breaking the bank). I was there on a Sunday and it was nice and relaxed. The people who work there are fun and fresh, you won't want to go home!

    I went to Shampoo Avenue B last night to have my roommate, Carly, de-frizz my hair using the Brazillian hair straightening treatment. I was enticed to try this out after hearing how relatively fast and non-damaging this process was, as well as looking forward to super straight silken hair. The two hours flew by as I was chatting with Carly, checking out the cool art, and listening to some really great music. Before I knew it my frizzy hair was transformed into pin straight silky smooth hair! And how great is it that you can wash your hair the very next day, unlike the Japanese technique! After drying my hair this morning in about 4 minutes without any product, it looks perfectly straight and smooth with no touch from a flat iron. I will definitely keep coming back to Carly!

    Daniel did a magnificant job of straightening my hair using the Brazilian Treatment. He was knowledgeable about the process and made sure the area was well ventilated. Everything was washed out so that I don't have to keep it in my hair for four days like other places I've gone to. Daniel was a total professional throughout, and I walked away believing that every penny was well spent. In fact, the whole place was fun and comfortable. Not a pretentous bone anywhere! All of the stylists seemed to have a great rapport with their clients. I'll definitely be back.

    The first time I went to Shampoo I had a great experience. Great haircut and not too expensive. About two months later I was ready for another cut. I called the salon at 1pm and made the appointment for 4pm. The receptionist told me it was no problem. So I made my way from midtown to the East Village on one of the hottest days of the summer and arrive right at 4. The receptionist then tells me (in a very thick accent) that he made a mistake and the stylist wouldn't be in that day. So why didn't he call me back when he realized his error instead of having me go all the way to the salon to find this out? He attempted to make excuses as to why this was but I honestly could not understand a word he was saying. If you are going to have a receptionist a least be sure that he/she can speak in a manner that the customers can decipher. I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and rescheduled for the next saturday. I came back at the "scheduled" time and I was told I would have to wait an hour because the stylist was running late. To me that was all it took to say goodbye forever to this "attitude-free" "rock-n-roll" salon. I'd rather take my chances at Super-Cuts than have to deal with this barber-shop again.

    I arrived promptly for a 6pm appointment. A receptionist looked at the book and told me I had cancelled. ?? After discussion in a different language, the manager stated that they had made sure that it was me and they cancelled the appointment-five minutes after I made the original appointment. I asked how they made sure (because I hadn't cancelled) and she had no answer. I suggested that probably someone else with my same appointment cancelled and was told no. I thought they could look at the caller id to see who had actually called, but was told there was no caller id. That was pretty much it. There was no apology (because they had made sure it was me) and I walked out.

    When I walked into Shampoo Avenue B I didn?t know what type of haircut I wanted. My hair can be difficult at times to deal with and I wanted something that looked great and was easy to manage. Harley knew exactly the type of haircut that would suite me and he delivered. He?s a great stylist!! The salon itself was real cool and they had great tunes playing. I have never been to a salon that was so much fun. I?m definitely going back again and maybe even try a more radical hair style. I?ll leave that up to Harley to decide.

    I found this salon by walking past on a neighborhood errand. That was two haircuts, a couple of referrals and three color appointments ago. I'm hooked! I love the customer service (they remembered my name!), the talent (Daniel is my hair hero!), the atmosphere (hip tunes instead of sleepy spa music and "real" people who don't wince if you walk in wearing flip flops instead of couture), Aveda products (enough said), and I always leave the salon with exactly what I want at a very fair price. I am a very picky customer when it comes to my hair and I definitely recommend this salon. You should try it! You've got nothing to lose except some split ends and those same old highlights you've been rockin' since college.

    The first time I visted Shampoo I wasnt quite sure what I wanted to do but they provided me with a variety of up to date look books as well as a cup of coffee. I ended up letting the stylist steer me in a direction based on his opinion of what would look best for my skin tone and face shape. I was a bit nervous but ended up loving it and now I won't go anywhere else. The last time I went in there I felt totally confident in letting them cut all of my hair off to a 60's boy cut and I love it. They really know what they are doing and have great taste in hair styles.

    I've never reviewed anything online before, but i thought i should really let people know how wonderful this place is. I went in looking to spice up a bland shoulder-lenght cut, asked for something natural and easy to maintain (i'm not big on product or frequent costly haircuts), but that had some real edge. I like an artsy flare, and this place looked like somewhere I could find it. I asked for something perhaps asymmetrical and showed Harley a picture of a short hair cut i liked. He adapted it perfectly to my taste, so I wouldnt have to go through that painful growing out process that comes with a real sort cut... and so the cut would bring out my natural waves. He was super friendly, asked for my imput, and explained everything he was doing and why. For the quality of the cut and service, the price is great. I payed $65 for mine and i'll definitly be back! Thank you Harvey, you are a wonderful artist!

I went in looking to spice up a bland shoulder-lenght cut, asked for something natural and easy to maintain (i'm not big on product or frequent costly haircuts), but that had some real edge. I like an artsy flare, and this place looked like somewhere I could find it. I asked for something perhaps asymmetrical and showed Harley a picture of a short hair cut i liked. He adapted it perfectly to my taste, so I wouldnt have to go through that painful growing out process that comes with a real sort cut... and so the cut would bring out my natural waves. He was super friendly, asked for my imput, and explained everything he was doing and why. For the quality of the cut and service, the price is great. I payed $65 for mine and i'll definitly be back! Thank you Harvey, you are a wonderful artist!

    Pros: Hip styles, skilled stylists

    Cons: kinda far from the train, but whatev.

    I walked through the doors and the first words out of my mouth were "Help!" Three weeks prior I had gotten a haircut that left my hair frizzy/out of control and I was losing hope that anything could be done to save it. I called Shampoo Avenue B after reading the last citysearch review (got an appointment the same day) and am so happy that I did. Harley cut my hair and did an amazing job! He took the time to understand what I was looking for and explained each and every step in the process. He also recommended a few changes and the end result is lovely. Thank you thank you thank you. The relaxed and funky atmosphere (yet professional service) was a definite plus.

    i went to shampoo ave b hoping to get a good cut (always so hard to get anything good with my curly hair), and what i got was a total miracle!!!!! Harley (owner) cut my hair himself, and even suggested touch of color and it came out so beautiful. i couldnt be more impressed, as i feel stylists are always afraid to go the extra mile scared to leave a comfort zone, and that is definately not whats happenin here!!! ive washed and styled it myself several times since the cut and it's totally held its shape (hello bridget bardot!!) - also was totally impressed with the guy a few mirrors down shaving designs on the side of a girls mohawk! WOW! baby, that hairdo was smokin!!!!

    Pros: atmosphere, genuine style, my favorite aveda conditioner (rosemary mint)

    I may never have my hair cut or colored anywhere else. Shampoo is a wonderfully chill place (with great music playing while you get your hair did! ) The staff is very cool, very down to earth, and they really take the time to listen and make sure you're getting exactly what you want. Great, great place.
