I am so glad that I took the bus the other day, because I met a woman and really admired her hair color. After talking with her, she told me she had it done at a salon called Salon Gio, which wasn't too far from my apartment. She referred me to Susan, who is their master colorist. When I got there, she gave me a consultation and I felt very comfortable with her approach and explanation of color in how she would create the result I was looking for. Once she was done, she felt that I should get a blow out, even though I wasn't scheduled for one, she referred me to Alex, who was not only a sweetheart, did an excellent job. I was able to see my hair finished and felt great. Both Susan and Alex are great, are really professional and provide a great service. You will be very satisfied in going to Salon Gio just as I did.

I received some spa gift certificates for my birthday. Due to surgery I was not able to use them until now. Because they run out soon, I have had to go to many of them in the past month so I feel that I can very fairly compare the massage therapists at the various salons. By far, Mary Lou is the GREATEST! From her warm up (no other place in the neighborhood does that) to the warm, oiled stones on the face, she makes you feel like you are truly in heaven. When I tried to book for next week - no go- she's filled up already! Guess that's what happens when you are THAT GOOD. CONGRATS to SALON GIO for employing a truly gifted massage therapist! Merry Christmas and God's blessings to all the wonderful, welcoming, energetic staff at Salon Gio

I went to Salon Gio for many years. I liked them so much they did my hair and makeup for my son's wedding. Susan is a wonderful hair colorist and I must say very professional. She also stands behind her work. However I had 3 keratin treatments and did not have the same results. Crystal did my treatment the first time and it took beautifully. The second time I did not have the same results. Members of the salon agreed that I should ask her to touch it up. She did. The third time, $250 later, the treatment did not take. I called Crystal and told her about it. She told me that it wasn't her fault if i sweat, and that she will not consider fixing it. She was quite nasty. When I spoke with the owner, Thomas, he was very pleasant however, by no means made any effort to repair and satisfy me as a valuable customer. Actually he told me I continue using the salon, but there wasn't anything he could do. Interesting, i visited another spa in the neighborhood who did the treatment and I had excellent results. Bottom line they do not stand by their work. I was a very pleasant and low key client who enjoyed visiting the salon, but I would by no means refer anyone to them. Lesson learned there were two approaches to a customer. Crystal who was right out rude but I at least knew where she was coming from. However Thomas was very pleasant but the message was the same.

I have been seeing Thomas at Salon Gio for about 8 years now and would not see any one else. I've tried other salons in the Brooklyn area and have always been disappointed. I had my hair done for my engagement party and got plenty of compliments. I also slept in Brooklyn the night before my wedding (I lived in NJ at the time) so that I can have my hair done at the salon and it came out beautiful! Thomas did what he had to do to make me look amazing! They all have a great eye for what do looks best on you and you surley will not be disappointed!

Pros: friendly, clean, respectable

Sadly the service has been declining for a long while. I hung in there out of loyalty and convenience but this last haircut was really bad and the attiude that accompanied it was not appreciated. Simply put, they don't value their customers.

Was a long time customer...no longer. I am taking my business elsewhere.

I totally disagree with any of these reviews,,,,You can't believe everything you read or hear, I believe only hateful jealous people would write such a thing,,,,,I've known them for 10 years , they couldn't be more friendlier, eager to please people. They're honest and don't perform services just to make money!

THE BEST

I cannot believe the bad things people are saying about Salon Gio. If you have never been there before give it a chance you won't regret it. The staff is very friendly and aim to please. You will love both the busy energy of the salon and the tranquility that the spa upstairs offers. As far as whoever wrote that they've been going for five years and never liked it. Who in their right mind spends their money for services they dont like for five years?

Unless you can handle the smell of burning hair, a red scalp, and painful burns, don't get your hair blown out here! I have been a loyal customer for 5years and have spent thousands of dollars getting my hair cut and colored by the Master Colorist and Master Stylist - and they do a fantastic job, every time. However, when it comes time for a blowout by one of the other stylists, it's sloppy, rushed, ROUGH, painful and careless. I have had my hair blown out by all of them, hoping to find one who actually wants to do it right, and each time is the same result. They could care less about blowing my hair out if they aren't the one cutting it - they even complained and groaned about how long my hair is - TOO BAD! I will continue to get my hair done here, but I will walk out of there with a soaking wet head every time rather than have one of those girls touch my hair.

Pros: The Master Stylist/Colorist are great

I don't know what happened to this salon. My initial visit was wonderful - friendly service and a beautiful haircut. That was way back when they had a smaller location on 11th avenue. Subsequent visits have proven to decline a little more each time, down to the point where I actually hate the cut. It seems the stylists can't embrace the concept of "EVENLY distributed layers". Instead they always seem to opt for that lovely helmet-hair mullet-y look that looks good on NO ONE. It used to be a great place, I just think that the stylists need to brush up on their skills. No matter, I'm done with that place.

Reviews can't be trusted as many are written by the salon, family and friends.
That said, I've gone to other salons based on rave reviews only to be disappointed by the usual. Salon Gio is no different. It's fine. No better or worse than anywhere else. The spa is over rated.

I got my hair cut, styled, and dyed at this salon. This salon is very clean however it is quite expensive. The color came out bland. It lacked the sparkle that I needed. However, I absolutely loved my hair cut, hence the rating. I recommend it for the haircut, not the color.

I had a facial and a massage here and I really enjoyed it. I had a massage with Mary lou and it was excellent, just the right amount of pressure, she def. customized the massage to my liking. I also had a collagen facial with Amelia who was also excellent, she didnt pressure me to buy products although she did have suggestions and you can tell she truly cares, my skin felt amazing and most importantly to me, her extractions are very gentle and I didnt walk out red. Other places I have been to I always walk out very red and irritated. The spa is like a different world from the salon. I have never gotton my hair done but will def be back to do so. I will def be back

Pros: Atmosphere, staff, the massage and facial were excellent!

Cons: That place would be perfect if it had a steam shower or a suana something like that

I'm pretty easy to please but my last cut and style with them was absolutely horrible by anyone's standards. To add insult to injury, the owner, clearly knowing he had created a mess, was trying to tell me it looked good. HE KNEW it didn't look good!! Anyone with eyes could see how absurd it looked. I wish I could attach a photo. My hair was sticking straight up and out ....no exaggeration...no style just a mess...which was not even remotely close to what I had asked for. I honestly felt like I was being punked. Mind you, I ASKED if this was something my hair could do before we got started. If no, fine if yes great. The question was met with an exuburant YES! If the owner couldn't do it, he should have said so. It's that simple.

It is unforgiveable and arrogant to try and sell a client on something you know full well is a mess. Take some pride in your work. Admit when you mess up and try to make good on it. It's unprofessional and not acceptable. The owner clearly has gotten to big for his britches.

I also do not recommend massages there. It was evident this person had no schooling/training. While I can appreciate hiring friends and family, it's more important to hire qualified people.

I've also been left waiting on more than one occassion at the desk patiently...nobody else there, nobody on the phone...this is again where the salon needs some customer service training.

For me results there have been sometimes good, sometimes bad, but this last incidient was so beyond ridiculous it tore it for me. I won't be returning.

I actually found Susan at Salon Gio through spotting one of her clients in the street!! I have been going to Susan for years! She is a true Artist with the brush! I promise if you are going to one of the ritzy manhattan salons you are waiting your time and money - Susan is a true gem!

This salon has out done many of the other salons in the neighborhood! I was in a wedding and needed to have my hair in an updo..I called up and asked for their first appt. with whom ever they would give(can't be picky at this point)! I arrived and was greated by a very friendly staff. I met Rosa who listened to what I was looking for and I was nervous since I myself wasn't sure how I wanted my hair. I was so PLEASED with her talent and patience. When I arrived to meet up with all the other brides maids I was impressed that my hair stood out from the rest!! I immediately made a haircut appt for the following week. I just had my haircut yesterday and I absolutely LOVE IT AND LOVE ROSA!!! She has a new and dedicated client! It is very difficult to find someone you just "click"with and does exceptional work! I am terrible at making appts. but no need to worry here!! They call you and confirm the night B4. I am so grateful because I need someone to keep ontop of me f/ personal appts since I am soo busy with business appts. I scheduled my appt in 8 wks and I know they will call to remind me....The best part is..I know I will find excuses to go back in the next week to even have my hair blown out.. Way to go Salon Gio and Rosa...You stand out from the rest and the prices are extremely reasonable.....Hhhmm maybe I will schedule a facial next I'm already impressed!

After years of bad experiences and unprofessional attitudes I have struck gold. Salon gio offers service that exceeds your highest expectations. I was highly recommended to see Susan their only color specialist and I have never been happier.

Susan took her time with my consultation, I immediately felt comfortable . She was knowledgable and professional . Susan knew all the latest looks but was able to customize a hair color for my skin tone and busy lifestyle. She explained step by step each procedure , and knowing how nervous I was she was patient . Which is rare in my salon experiences. I never felt rushed and my experience was wonderful. My hair color is beautiful and people stop me all the time for compliments and her buisness card.

I highly , highly recommend Susan and Salon Gio. You will truly be happy .

I had looked on city search to find a salon near my house. After viewing the other reviews for Salon Gio I figured I would give it a try. Even though i was only schedueling an apt, the owners & staff were all divine. I felt very welcomed....... I made an apt with Elizabeth for a facial. This facial had to be the BEST one I have ever gotten! Elizabeth definetly knew what she was doing,

After the facial I decided to have my hair done. I saw a few reviews on Anthoula and figured I would try her out. I wanted a new look, While consulting with me she recommended a perfect style that was easy to maintain, very stylish and we also decided to put a gloss which would liven up my locks and give it a fantastic shine. Well, I was absolutely very pleased with everything. The whole experience, from the shampoo to the final result.....and while waiting with the gloss n my hair the staff was very attentive. Anthoula is now my new stylist, very professional, easy to talk to, very helpful ..
Thanks so much Anthoula!!!

This salon is definitely the best salon I have been to. Not only does this salon exude class, without the snottiness that some other local salons have, but my hairstylist Anthoula was always very professional from the first day that I went to her and she just keeps getting better everytime I go back. I know that I can trust her to tell me what would look good on my hard-to-style curly hair. During our last session, she recommended a long side-swept-bang and I was hesitant, but after tons of reassurance from Anthoula, I absolutely love it! It is so easy to manage (just like Anthoula said it would be), and I have gotten so many compliments about my hair. Paying at the front desk is very quick and they are very affordably priced. This salon is definitely a must if anyone is looking for a relaxing day at the salon.

I made an appointment @ Salon Gio for the first time a few weeks ago. A friend recommended I see Anthula, I was in a rut because I had gone to my usual place and they butchered my hair! I tried Anthula over at Salon Gio, not only was she very proffessional but I felt very comfortable and I could trust her. I let her change my hair color which was gorgeous and she gave me the exact cut I wanted! The shampoo I got from her assistant was wonderful, the service was great! and checkout was fast and affordable! HIGHLY RECOMMEND SALON GIO
