I needed highlights and cut for affordable price and my friend recommanded me to Ryung to get my hair done. Love Love Love. Best highlight and best cut ever! and it was less than 200 all together!

Went last night for my first appointment with Shawn at Armando Corral. I have long blonde hair and highlights, and I hate looking too fake or bleached out...Shawn put about a million tiny foils in my hair and it looks AMAZING. So natural and shiny. And the cut - oh, the cut. I had a bad experience with layers several years ago so I've kept it pretty simple since then, but Shawn and I decided to try them out again, and WOW they look incredible. He is a genius. I have never been happier with my hair - thank you SO much Shawn!!

Pros: Best cut/color of my life

Cons: None

I moved back to NYC from California and my hair was a mess, the color was horrific and I was scared I would have to start from scratch. I have long hair, the previous stylist gave me copper and super blond highlights, my hair felt course and fried. Shawn took over, he was able to tone down the color without excess chemicals and I have been able to keep my long style. My color is amazing, and my haircuts are a steal in this city. My hair is fine but thick, it has a mind of it's own and in the humidity it frizzes out. Shawn's cuts have tamed the wild beast and his is so good at teaching me how to style my hair that I look salon fresh whenever I turn off my blowdryer. I highly recommend both the Armoando Corral Salon and Shawn Salim.

I am Asian, and I have a hard time trusting people to cut my hair. I met Shawn working on a commercial and he was styling for them. We got to talking and just from what he told me I knew that he was good at his job. He gave me the unconventional cut I had wanted and I loved it. You know it's good when other hairstylists are complimenting you!
I believe that styling hair is art and Shawn Salim is an artist. He is a sculpture that knows hair.
Shawn is a great listener, fun, and he is unafraid to explore and execute what you ask of him. He knows what looks good and he is highly skilled. I loved the way I felt when i was in his chair. I felt like art. And I believe that is the way you should feel when you are being styled. The end result is a great experience with plenty of positive feedback.

Sean has been cutting my hair for the past year and i wont let another person touch it.ever. He's hip and has a great eye. He always gives me a rockin haircut with a perfect blend of hipster irony and beauty. A major problem I encountered before going to Shawn, was my stylist over using razors to accomplish the look i was going for .As a result,it would damage my hair like crazy. Shawn, on the otherhand, is so technically proficient with shears, he doesnt even need to bother with a razor! If your looking for a great haircut, i would highly recommend Shawn Salim at Armando Corral.

I love going to Armando Corral--it's comfy and intimate. I always get my hair done by Shawn--I tell him to cut it however he thinks will look best, and he always does an AMAZING job. Echoing the review below, Shawn's haircuts look fantastic as they grow out. He has a sculptor's eye--i've never had anyone cut my hair the way that he does, and it's pretty fascinating to watch. He's also a lot of fun to talk to.

I once completely wrecked my hair trying to lighten it myself. I used bleach and about three other things and turned my hair a frightening yellow that glowed when I turned the lights off. I went to Shawn and he totally fixed it. He put in a few different kinds of highlights, and didn't stop working on it until it looked great. I was just hoping for something that would look normal, but Shawn managed to make it look fantastic (and natural!). He's the greatest!

I've been a client of Shawn Salim's since 2005. I'm a loyal customer
for two reasons: my hair looks great right after he cuts it and my
hair proceeds to look amazing as it grows into the cut. Shawn not only
trims and styles your hair, he shapes it and crafts in such a way that
it continues to bloom well after you have left his chair. There are
many high end salon options throughout New York City. What separates
Shawn from the rest is the artistry and heart that goes into each of
his haircuts.--John Darcy//co-founder Sugarspun Records

I found Shawn two years ago and I've been hooked ever since! NO one else is allowed near my hair with scissors!! Shawn is the most friendly and easy going stylist I've been to in the city. And he listens to you and does exactly what you want!! Not what he thinks will look good (unless you ask him to)!! Everyone at the salon from the receptionist to the shampoo girl are friendly and glad to to see you, even the owner Armando! If you want NYC style with out the attitude, check this spot out you wont be disappointed! Oh and there's wine too!!!

I met Shawn through a friend who had the funkiest and coolest hair style in NYC. I've been Shawn's number one customer since I had my first cut at Armando Corral. He cuts and styles my hair exactly how I like. I let him be creative and surprise me and I ALWAYS LOVE LOVE what he does... Every where I go people ask me WHO CUT YOUR HAIR! Feels so great when you get so much attention for your hair style :)

Rock on Shawn... I love you.

I have never really taken care of my hair, thinking that it was not worth it.
However, since Shawn has started cutting it, I started realizing how big of a difference it can make to have a good haircut. The cuts are great because they really fit. Shawn managed to cut my hair in a way I don't need to spend hours in the morning to make it look good, and it grows out well. Exactly what I needed :)
And the place is great too, lovely people and I love the flowers on the wall!

After 13 years of living in NYC and going through seven stylists, I FINALLY found the best one in the city. Shawn Salim has been cutting and coloring my hair for over two years and everytime I leave the salon I get tons of compliments. His haircuts are modern and hip but still suited to your own personality. He listens to what you want, offers up ideas and takes his time to make sure the haircut is just right. I love Shawn and I love the salon. Everyone is super friendly and I always have a good time when I'm there. - Deepali Kakar, Lead Interaction Designer, Scholastic Inc.

I have been going to Shawn Salim at Armando Corral for many years and he is THE best! I have referred him to my fiance, friends and colleagues and now they are satisfied customers of Shawn as well. He has an amazing sense of style. Over the years he has colored, blown out, cut and styled my hair from short to long. His cuts get noticed and his color looks totally natural! He can cut from funky to conservative and still make sure the cut looks like you... only better. Best of all, Shawn listens and really delivers what you want. Whether you come with a vision or a picture in mind or want to say, Shawn, give me what you think will look great, he will not disappoint. Be prepared for non-stop compliments after your visit! Shawn, thank you for making me look good!

Pros: They're the best!

I'm a guy who, for years, has been fighting his own hair. It's very fine, and when I try to do it "up" any way, it almost immediately falls right back down. Elmer's glue is literally the only thing that holds it in place. I came into Armando Corral wanting highlights and a cut that would hold it up. My stylist, however, suggested I do the exact OPPOSITE, taking it darker and going with the whorl of my natural hair growth. He used special cutting techniques to give my hair movement and a bit of body, even if it's flat, and followed it up with great advice that I hadn't heard in three years of trying different salons around town. The advice alone was worth the price of admission. It was totally not what I had expected, but it works so much better than what I wanted would have. I'm going to wear this style for a very long time, and now, I can actually maintain it.

A bit pricey compared to other places in the area (though still less than what they could have charged for a cut, color, and eyebrow treatment), but if your hair needs serious help (as mine did), or if you want to invest in a new style, it's well worth it. These guys aren't stylists, they're artists.

For over 20 years, Armando Corral has been my hairstylist and my friend. Our friendship developed from years of putting my trust and hair in his very capable hands. When it comes to hair we all know that this is no ease feat! My trust and respect for him stems from his skill and ability and in his unwavering character. Armando has lovingly guided this once neurotic ?I-hate-my-hair? young woman to the ?I-love-my-fabulous-hair? woman that I am today!

Armando has worked tirelessly to be at the cutting edge of style, to cultivate a loyal client base by truly listening and understanding his clients? needs, and to own a business where his name and reputation embody the values and integrity that are his core.

I find it reprehensible that someone would post a slanderous personal attack against someone he/she does not know. To claim that Armando has no morals or ethics only shows the level of irrationality Armando probably had to deal with in trying to mollify an unfortunate and distressing situation.

My hope is that Citysearch users will read past the spite of one reviewer and put credence in the excellent reviews from long standing clients and friends of Armando Corral.

I've been going to Marie at Armando Corral for four years, and basically think she's a genius. She's guided me from boy-short hair to my current mid-length do, gotten me all fancy for my wedding, and made me look beautiful even when I walked into the salon looking and feeling like a total shlep. I love the atmosphere at Armando Corral, the relaxed, happy staff, the low-key vibe, and the terrific attention they pay to their clients. I'd never been a regular anywhere before (not for my hair, not even for my dentist) until I met Marie. I still don't have a regular dentist, but I'll never go anywhere else for a haircut.

In reading the previous review, I am perplexed. I have been a client of Armando's for 17 Years. I have followed him to at least 3 salons until he opened his own place. Besides being a crazy talented hair dresser, the kind that brings you gracefully from one style to another, and won't let you leave his chair until your hair is perfect because his name is on the door. He is one of those Southern Sweethearts that operates with a lot of honesty and integrity. I haven't seen the 2 stylists mentioned below in over a year so I think there might be lots of inaccuracy in that review.

Armando has always been -- and still is -- one of the best hair stylists in New York. I've been a faithful client of his for almost ten years, which is the longest relationship that I've had since I moved here. Not my job. Not my boyfriend. Not my shrink. Armando. And, trust me, if I don't like something or someone, I move along. Quickly. Armando (and I've also had my hair cut and colored by Marie, so I add her in the mix here) provides me with something that looks good from the moment I walk out of the salon and can last for months. There have been times when I've forgotten to make appointments because my hair has grown in so beautifully. And color! Their specialty. I had my hair colored for years there, and no one ever thought I was coloring my hair. And, when I decided to let the "pre-mature" ;-) gray show, Armando was supportive and made it look amazing.

If you're looking for a place that is low-key, smooth, and provides some of the best styling in NY (wrapped up in the nicest, most talented group of people you'll ever meet), Armando's is your place. You won't be disappointed.

This Hair Salon Literally Burnt my HAIR OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!
By a relaxer...........
BY a hair cutter that I won't name and her colorist. that are still working there ....
When I merely asked for my money back THE Owner Armando
Did not want to try to repair the hair that was just 2inches left.
I came in with 10 inches of hair !!!!
I should have Sued ,
but didn't want to go through it .
But Now I will Tell all of You 's HE IS A Bad Guy , with no Morals ,
or Ethics.
I got my money back , But he argued about it .
Can you believe it ?, that He wanted to keep his $100. had no empathy or felt responsible .
Unbelievable Isn't it .

I have been a loyal customer for over 3 years now.
When I first came to the salon I was in serious hair therapy, THANKS TO MARIANO my hair feels and looks fantastic. I refuse to even look at another hair salon. From the moment you walk into Armando Corral Salon everyone is very friendly and courteous. The place is very hip and has fantastic music. If you're in serious need of a hair change in your life I definitely recommend MARIANO the man does miracles. You will walk out of the place definitely feeling very confident.

I've lived in ny for 3 years. I've changed salon for each hair cut. I'm spanish. I have thick curly hair. I like it long but always wanted to change it. Finally my search is over. MARIANO at Armando Corral Salon gave the best haircut. The place is very easy going, the prices all right, and now I love my hair. I highly recommend this place.

a friend advised me this salon in the meat packing. I live in the east village. I was a bit worried about the trendy location. well, not at all snobby. Great vibe and I love my color. the stylist was very friendly and well experienced. His name is Mariano. (I made an appointment for a haircut in a week).

My hair is really frizzy and I always had a hard time styling it so it would look good. I tried all the anti-frizz products and went to many hairdressers but nobody was able to help me until I met Janaan. She took one look at my hair and knew exactly how to fix it. She gave me relaxer and an amazing layered cut that really makes a difference. It's cut down on the time I need for maintanence and my hair which always looks great.

The cuts are a little pricey ($150-$200 for cuts, $200-300 for highlights). When you add tax and gratuity, stick another 30% on your tab. My friend religiously goes to a guy named Brian who's only there on Saturdays, and I've now been to him twice. Due to the price, it's hard to bring myself to regularly fork over that kind of cash, but I treat myself when I'm completely depressed about my hair. Brian is truly wonderful- Both times I've walked out satisfied. Don't know about the other people, can't recommend them. If I'm gonna spend $200 on a cut, I'm going to someone who's personally recommended by a friend that I trust, or someone who I've been to once (now twice) already. Brian. Call a few days in advance for Brian. He travels, I think, so he is not always there.

Janaan of the amazing haircuts is definitely not a myth. I've been going to her for years now, and I will stay with her until the very end. I've recommended her to friends and friends of friends...they are all hooked. She is a gift from heaven. The salon, too, is a gem of a place. MAKE AN APPOINTMENT NOW. You won't find a spot like this anywhere else.

I went to this salon based on the rave reviews...and Jannan really did give me the best haircut I've had in years and I've been trying many different salons kinds of salons. The price was reasonable for NYC and she really knew what to do without too much specific guidance from me. I just gave her my general preferances and she gave me a really great, unique haircut which maintaining the length! incredible!

I wish you could see my hair or the huge smile on my face. After pouring over and over citysearch reviews, I chose Armando Corral and booked highlights and a cut with Armando. I had long brown hair that was NOT flattering. Armando seemed to psychically know what to do! He described a look I wanted but thought I couldn't have - then executed it - a perfect blend of classy yet rock star, sexy but not trashy, natural yet edgy. He managed to cut my hair and yet make it look LONGER. How does that happen? His color is SO gorgeous! He brought beautiful ash blonde perfectly blended streaks from my brown hair with ONLY color - NO BLEACH! I cannot sing the praises of the genius hairdresser enough. Stop searching! Make an appointment. The salon is fun, the staff is so friendly and Armando is my hair hero.

this place is stellar. janaan was the stylist who got me into a completely different look when i was ready, cut it perfectly and continues to amaze. i hear she's rocks on guitar, but she's pretty good w/scissors too. the place is also the right kinda' atmosphere...low key, no attitude, smiles all around. it's so great to see smart style with no attitude.

Just give a call and ask for JANAAN, and you will not be disappointed! She is the best stylist I've had cut my hair in NYC, and I've been to plenty of salons. She is sweet, personable and she totally rocks--on and off the stage!

Trust is everything when talking hair...Run, do not walk to Armando Corral to have Janaan Simon cut and/or color your locks - you will be ecstatic! She is a highly skilled, highly experienced professional, with a genuinely upbeat "chairside" manner...Ya can't lose!

Get your styling and cut in cool, relaxed comfort; located in the Meat Packing District. Great staff, especially the personable and foxy Janaan. Located in an old walkup building about 20 yards from nice-looking cafes and restaurants - hair cut, sights, food/drink and shopping - all in a stone's throw.

Seriously, just from the economic point of view: you can dismiss your valet, your barber, your stylist, your wardrobe consultant, your shopper, and any confessors or helping-profession types you may be in the habit of visiting. Just pony up for one first-class haircut with Janaan every so often (and it doesn't have to be that often, because Janaan designs her cuts to grow in and last), and watch previously intractable life problems miraculously melt away. With her near-magical combination of skill, intuition, artistic sensibility and rock-ribbed common sense, Janaan will grasp what you need and make it happen. Make an appointment with her at the Armando Corral Salon, or continue to wander in the wilderness and consign your wrong-styled soul to the fires of Hell!

Pros: Lovely space, Excellent assistants, Great talent

Cons: Not free, No "happy ending", Won't shave your palm

I fly here every 6 weeks for Armando to do my color done, need I say more? Janaan's cut is so phenominal that I can go 4 to 5 months and it still looks great. When I first starting coming here my hair had been destroyed and hacked. It's now full, healthy and gorgeous. They are BOTH, the best on either Coast. You won't get any better.

Armando Corral is a fabulous salon with a great, laid back vibe. Janaan has been cutting for my hair for over 5 years and always gives me great styles. She even came to CT and styled my hair for my wedding and wedding party. She was fantastic and always a blast!! Highly Recommended.

That's what three of my friends told me after Janaan cut my hair at Armando Corral's studio. Janaan is a true hair intuitive - she's amazing! How many haircuts have I had in my life?? Right -- well, Janaan's the one who found my haircut. And she's fun (though not that annoying in-your-face "fun" that characterize some stylists) and she's a great rock and roller!

Janaan is the first stylist I've been to in NYC (and I've been to at least 7) who was able to execute exactly what I wanted and add her own interpretation. Her cuts are very consistent and on point. That's saying a lot because without the right cut my fine hair looks like a floppy wet blanket. She's the first stylist I've been to where the cut actually retains its shape for a couple of months. She's got some serious mojo with the scissors and she's charming to boot.

Hi - The 60's mod type of cut where the hair is choppy and textured but generally brushed forward is the look that I've been going for. I've been in NYC for 8 years and have bounced around from stylist to stylist trying to get that look. I sort of gave up thinking that my hair was not the right type for this cut....Until Janaan -she was the first to understand my idea and inject her own interpretation. The results are always consistent and on the mark. And - I can go 10-12 wks between cuts (sometimes) because it grows out and maintains the shape of the cut! wOw!

Not only is Janaan the best hair stylist ever, she is also one kickass guitar player! I have been a loyal client of Janaan's for some time now, and believe me -- if you want what YOU want, she will deliver with her special funky touch. Armando Corral Salon is a warm and cozy place to kick back and get some hair cut!

Armando Corral is a relaxed salon with no attitude, where a friendly, yet professional staff provide excellent service. Janaan is a stand-out. Janaan has been my stylist for several years and has taken me through a variety of different cuts and looks. Janaan instinctivly knows how to translate whatever look I have in mind into reality, without ever losing my individulaity. When you have your hair cut by Janaan you hear "you look amazing", rather than "your hair looks great". Highly recommended.
