Jackie was flawless, as I read from another reviewer. Take this from someone who was spending $300 plus on a haircut at a posh nyc salon. I will definitely be back! She is SO nice and SO cool too. I have not yet had a good haircut in NJ so finding this with a baby on the way where it'll be hard to treck to the city anymore was an absolute God send. Thank you Jackie!

After having a terrible haircut and color at another salon, I scheduled an apt with Christine and Zoe to see what coud be done to correct the damage. I have extremely fine and thinning hair which is really difficult to work with, especially after it had already been damaged and cut poorly. Christine was able to work magic, taking my thin fine and destroyed hair and making it look somewhat healthy and stylish. Zoe
applied some color that brought back my hair color and made it shiny and healty looking.
I think this is THE best salon around, and Zoe and Christine are real professionals who take real pride in their work. Thank you Zoku!

love this salon. They are professional, and cutting edge. I have been to the best salons in major cities. Christine and Zoe came highly recommended and they followed through ! This is my new salon, and I travel from Connecticut just to see them.

Great color, amazing service, and Julie in the Spa gives the best facial massage. My color stays true for weeks and my cut always looks polished.

As an "insider" into the hair salon industry, I'm a strong believer that you get what you pay for. Why would a top-notch stylist work in a cheap salon? They wouldn't. I've been to countless salons in NJ and I'm usually unimpressed. You can't seem to get the "Jersey" out of the NJ-trained stylist. Bad frosted hair and thick bangs are apparently still trendy to some. I was drawn to Zoku by their NYC stylists and it's the best salon I've been to in years. Though pricey, I always get a great cut. I've been going there for over a year and Jackie is flawless. For color, I was not pleased with the results the first time went. However, I called the next day, told them I wasn't satisfied and they set me up with another color appointment at no charge. They were very professional about it and I've been happy with my color ever since. People ask me all the time where I get my hair done -- a testament to them.

I decided to splurge and go with the owners for both cut and color. The cut by Christine was one of the best I had, but the highlight from Zoe was horrible. The highlight was almost a 1/2 inch from the root and the tone was very brassy. I went back for a correction which she was happy to do, but honestly didn't look much better. Basically, it looked very cheezy and blended horribly with my natural color. In addition, my hair was damaged in the process. I very much regret going to Zoe, it has taken a long time to get my hair healthy again.

After several years of searching for a talented colorist (including a couple of tries at a famous NYC color/salon) I went to see Zoe. She listened to my desires & budget concerns (dang economy!) and delivered results that exceeded my expectations. She is both an artist and a perfectionist so each time I leave, my hair and [stubborn] eye brows are a wow! I get compliments on my hair color... something I never experienced before. I am so happy to find such an artist!

Recently moved from California and my coworker who works at the east coast office recommended Bari for highlights I couldn't be happier. Saw her last week, I was a little afraid to try someone new being I have been seeing the same colorist for 10 years. After meeting with her and showing her some pictures she gave me exactly what I was asking for. Not ready for a haircut yet but she recommended a few stylists. I will definitely be back for color again and hopefully receive the same experience for my haircut.

HORRIBLE
the only person who was nice was the receptionist.
i overheard the owner yelling at one of her employees from another room....
the woman who did my hair did not seem happy or anything...my haircut also came out crooked.

zoku says theyre the best and caring.
my experince was THEY ARE THE WORST AND NOT CARING.
you can get a crappy haircut by a bitchy stylist anywhere, the only difference is zoku charges more money.

never coming back.

I have tried Zoku a few times...in the beginning(when they were new)) they were very accomodating, and actually I got 1 good haircut.. and a few ok color experiences. I read all of the reviews and decided it was easier than going into the city as that is what they claim they are ,a new york city salon in the suburbs... well I was wrong. They have NYC prices but not NYC talent. I have given them a few more chances and I have always have been disappointed in either color, cut, keratin treatiment or just the smug way they tell you their incredibly rediculous prices. they are not in NYC and they are not NYC stylists. It is that simple. oh check out their keratin prices it is pretty funny.....about double of most everyone else

I cannot even given one star for the appalling color that I received. The color was a RUST RED in spots!! It was put on my hair incorrectly. I was a customer for two years and never received the same color twice. Additionally, I was one of the UNFORTUNATE few to try both the Keratin and Brazillian relaxer. Although I asked for a Keratin treatment, I was given a Brazillian relaxer. The stylist assumed I was stupid. When I followed their policy of complaining about the job I first received, I was given the run around for two weeks. THEY DO NOT HONOR THEIR OWN POLICIES !! I was charged again for a mistake they made. I am not stranger to the hair relaxing products. To have a business treat their customers as ignorant people shows a LACK OF CLASS and decorum. Please do not choose this salon. They are overpriced, snobby, and refuse to follow their own policy.

I only tried Zoku because of the reviews, that was a mistake. I was competely disappointed. I was tired of my old look and wanted recommendations for something new but just got a version of the only "new look" I had tried in the past few years that I told the stylist about. It takes so much work to make "the look" come out nice that I hate the cut every time I blowdry my hair! I was also charged more than I was quoted on the phone and they made excuses and didn't honor the original price I was told.
The parking in the area is horrendous, leave an extra 15 minutes to find a spot.
The only positive thing I can say is the decor and atmosphere are energizing. But I won't be going back for sure.
It really makes me wonder if the reviewer who says these are all written by staff and friends might be right...you know when things sound too good to be true they usually are.

I'm new to the area and heard great things about Zoku. I made an appointment with Gianna for highlights. I was greeted with a great smile and a great personality by Gianna. She makes you feel comfortable instantly. My hair was a disaster and she fixed it almost effortlessly. She made it seem so easy. She also reccommeded a great Kerastase treatment and shamppo/conditioner! I just cant get over how great of a job she did and I needed to write something! If your looking for someone new with talent and knowledge, Gianna is your girl!!!

Yesterday was my first trip to Zoku. I have awful, frizzy, thin.dry, damaged, over treated hair. I was dying my hair blond to hide the grays and wanted to go to my more natural warm brown color. I made an appointment with Zoe and I AM THRILLED with what she did!!! You should see me today - a rich dark brunette with silky, shiny hair!!! Johanna did my style and she is AMAZING!! After thirty something years I FINALLY have pretty hair. I will be back to see Christine for Keratin and extensions!! Listen..all the makeup and nice clothes in the world never made me feel this good!! Thanks Zoe, Christine, Johanna and staff!!

So, the most frustrating thing about this salon is that it's on the other end of the country.

I was in New Jersey for a wedding and decided to take the opportunity to get my hair cut and colored. I had just arrived, had a cold and was generally not looking forward to it because I usually despise being stuck in a stylist's chair.

I can't even begin to describe what a fantastic experience it was at Zoku. You can tell that the stylists and staff are consummate professionals with unrivaled talent and training. I have never seen that level of skill exhibited in a salon in California. The colorist truly had a gift and an incredible focus.

After having my color done, I was introduced to Johnnie. I explained to him that I was getting married next year and felt that I should have the cliche grown out hair for it. In the most polite and diplomatic way, he asked if I wanted his opinion. I'm so incredibly glad he did. I entrusted him to cut in the way he saw would be most flattering. The transformation was incredible. I've never left a salon feeling so good about myself. My fiance picked me up and was totally in awe of the results. The atmosphere at Zoku made me feel comfortable enough to give the stylist free reign and the talent of the stylists made that so worthwhile.

It's been three months and I haven't been to another stylist. I'd rather fly back to Summit than submit to the whims of anyone else.

Thanks again for everything and I hope to be back there soon.

Living in Summit, I was looking for that edgy, sophisticated hair salon. Having had haircuts at F. Fekkai in NYC, and other top salons, my expectation levels are high. I eyed Zoku salon for several months, and took the plunge last week. The salon staff is attentive and friendly, and I immediately got a great vibe from Dina, the receptionist, and the stylist Jackie, the first two people that I met. I showed a few different photos of autumn 2008 hair trends to Jackie, and she selected one for her inspiration. Her interpretation resulted in a youthful cut that fit my face shape, and is so easy to care for. I already booked a blow out with Jackie for this week, for a special event that I have. Thank you, Zoku, for arriving in Summit, just in time!

Had been going to Frederic Fekkai - I loved my stylist and colorist; however, it takes all day since I am driving to and from the city. Zoku is great - good colorist is Isaac (try the ballyage for highlights).

I get my hair blown out every week with Jackie.She always makes my hair look healthy and me better than when I came in.

The price is comparable to any top salon here and better than NY.

Jackie cuts my hair as well and I have been very happy.

Isak colors my hair and I am happy.

I have had Pat and Miriam for blow outs when Jackie is unavailable and they do a super job as well.

I recently went into Zoku for my third time for color, after getting highlights twice, and looking FABULOUS!! I decided I wanted to go back to my natural dark brown. As nervous as I knew Bari would be able to do it right. She did it perfectly and I've never been happier. I also had Jackie cut and style my hair for me. It feels amazing, looks healthy and shiny and takes little to no effort for me to do on my own. Five stars... I can't wait for my next appointment. Thank you Girls!!

This place is worth every penny. Now that I have found ZoKu I am so happy. My first visit was in November and I have returned many times since. It is so important to have a colorist and hairstylists you can trust and I trust my hair with Zoe and Christine. Not only do I get a great cut and amazing color but I also get neck & shoulder massage and cappuccino while waiting between color developments. I recommend ZoKu to everyone who wants their hair done right.

I love blonde highlights! I went and saw the owner for a partial highlight and they lifted my base color. The lift on the base turned the hair a brassy red. The highlights which claimed to be expertly applied were not very good either. The color was almost a half an inch from my hair line with a noticeable line across the front and sides. The color was not blended very well. I had to go to another salon and pay more money to add highlights to blend the color better. It was so bad I couldn't wear my hair pulled back. Needless to say, you don't always pay more for better hair coloring. I will not be returning.

I have visited Zoku a few times to have my color done by Allison. She listens to what I want and makes suggestions to what would look best on me. Every time she is right on the money. I constantly get compliments on my color even when its old. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. I've never been happier with my hair. Thank you!!

I absolutely loved my experience at Zoku Salon in Summit. The natural friendliness and energy that comes from their staff put me at ease within minutes of walking in the door. My color has turned out fabulous each time I've gone there and continue to get compliments on it even a couple months later. I cannot wait until the next time I go back. It is truly a joy for me to get my hair done there.

NYC quality from start to finish with zero attitude or snobbery. Top-notch haircut, shampoo, blow-dry, all-around service and beautiful salon. Totally seamless-- these are real pros who make it all look easy. It's apparent they've diligently created their own place to make everything perfect from the design of the salon to the quality of the services provided and they've succeeded completely. Highly recommend.

So I went in last week and had a haircut with Miriam and I was very very pleased. She did exactly what i asked and listened to me very well and answered any questions with her honest opinion based on her knowledge.

I got my hair cut here, and it was terrible. One side was completely shorter than the other and I had to return TWICE without so much as an apology to get it fixed. The first time I returned to get it fixed the owner herself cut it, she was rude and still did an awful job. I am still unsatisfied with the cut, but will never return becuase of their snobby staff. Overpriced and overated.

Christine Ku talked to me, played with my hair, told me what I should do (and I agreed completely), then cut my hair and did a great job. I've been looking for a new stylist since I moved to NJ 5 years ago and FINALLY found one! I've been getting compliments from everyone since. My husband loves my haircut so much he told me to keep going there, regardless of the price (which is $135), because it's worth it. Customer service was excellent, with a big glass or water and a glass of wine offered when I arrived - how can you resist that after a day with the children?!?! The place is clean, vibrant, comfortable and not snobby. Their assistants were attentive and friendly. Thank you Zoe and Christine for coming to Summit!!

I've been going to the city for yrs and didnt want to make the commute any longer. A friend of mine goes to Gianna and was insistant that I give her a try. Well I did and I couldnt be happier!! She was the sweetest girl and very humble with her skill. She brings a calm relm to her chair and you feel so comfortable talking with her. Needless to say she did an amazing job and I will be visiting her again soon! Thanks Gianna!

I followed My colorist Gianna from another shop to Zoku. She is amazing and I would follow her to the other end of the world. She listens, she is extremely talented for her age and the sweetest girl I know! If she can please me, being as picky as I am, she can please anyone. I love you Gianna!

I went there today and had a new colorist by the name of Gianna do my color. She gave great recommendations and listened 2 what I didn't like which I thought was interesting. She was very professional, but young and has that hip way of doing color. Very fresh. Highly reccommended!

Zoe has been my colorist for almost 2 years now and I've never been happier. My color looks amazing everytime. I'm brunette, but with the colors and highlights Zoe engineers, the final product is always what I want and expect..always looks perfect.\r
It's a plus that she's fun and nice as well..

I've been a TV Newscaster and now, soon to be QVC Program Host, for the past 12 years. Zoe is effortlessly talented and truly an artist. When you work under the bright, brassy lights of a television studio, you have to be very careful about the shade of blonde you go with. It must not only compliment your complexion, but accomodate the effects of intense studio lighting. Zoe is incredibly talented and yet so humble and placid while doing what comes so hard to so many. You would be in wonderful hands...and I have put myself in many. From Bumble and Bumble to Warren Tricomi to a famed colorist with the Jonathon salon in Beverly Hills...Zoe is a gem and if you can get an appt to see her, it will be the best money you have spent. Luv You Zoe and thank you!

I would recommend Zoe to anyone who wanted the BEST OF THE BEST in hair color. My hair is 70% gray and colored blonde with highlights. Before Zoe, my hair did not hold the color for more than two weeks. My hair now holds its color for the full six weeks I leave between appointments and it is beautiful. I receive MANY COMPLIMENTS on my hair now, which I never did before. Zoe works miracles!

Zoe is a fantastic colorist. I have been going to her for years and my hair always comes out looking great and very natural. I am constantly receiving compliments on how great my hair looks. I am spoiled now, I could never think of going anywhere else for my highlights and color.

Zoe has been giving me blonde highlights for a few years and she's an expert. Her color suits each individual and is beautiful and unique. I always love the way my hair looks, and she has a great personality too, so it's always fun just to see her. I completely trust Zoe(and I'm picky and have been to many of the top salons in NYC.)

Zoe is amazing. My hair has never looked better. I've been getting my hair colored and highlighted for 10 years. This past year I wanted to be a blond (a big change from my natural brown) and made a switch to Zoe. EVERYONE I meet tells me how great I look. They love the way my hair shines and looks natural. It always feels wonderful, not dried out. The depth of the color is something I had never experienced before. But not only is she very talented, she also is so very nice. She makes you feel comfortable and important, even is you are not a celebrity. At that moment, in her chair, you feel like one.
