Had a great first experience at Gio Studio Salon...Upon arrival, I noticed a very clean, open, professional and engaging environment.

The staff was very friendly and nice - they took my coat and gave me an glass of juice. A great start!

That day I was at Gio's getting my haircut as I have done since the salon opened almost 4 years ago. Well what I saw was totally the opposite from the far-fetched story this young lady has come up with. The owner tried to reason with her

First off, let me start by saying they must have bought the reviews on this site, because if you check them out on Yelp - they have multiple bad reviews.. seems odd to me that they would all be good here. Anyways..

So after a summer of frizzy, curly, unruly hair I got to thinking about taking control of my hair. I read up online and narrowed it down to 2 salon.

I am so glad I chose Gio Studio Salon...after going thru a bad experience in 2004 with straightening my hair, I walked in to the salon and sat down with Gio for 1/2 hr and she talked to me about what to expect from the straightener...and more importantly she asked what "I expected" from it as well. I was blown away by her knowledge about the whole process. She walked me thru it step by step, from beginning to end. I know what you're thinking it was a sales pitch but here's the very thing that stood out to me...she gave up a 1/2hr of her time to literally listen to my questions without me even booking an appt when we were done. See that right there made the difference to me.

Most places pressure you to book immediately following a consultation. Here Gio didn't do that to me. She gave me her card and there was no pressure at all.

When I finally did take the leap, I realized I went with the best in town. My hair hasn't looked this good in years...EVEN when I don't blow it out...now if you have ever gotten your hair straightened you know if you don't blow it out...it's nothing but a frizzy mess but not with this product.

I have the option to blow my hair out or not and not look like a Q-tip. It was well worth the money and everyone I work with loves how shiny my hair is. There's bounce, shine and great style thanks to a quick trim Gio did.

Very happy will be back and telling everyone I know to RUN DON"T WALK to Gio's!!!!!!!

I have the best experience of my life, I got in and the staff was very welcoming and polite, I was so lucky to have Umberto as my hairstylist, he listen of everything that I have to said about my clor and haircut, he recomended what was the best for me and I follow and trust his expertise.My color is amaizing and the haircut the best that I ever had. I felt like a million dollar leaving the salon and happier when somebody at the street complemented me.I truly recommend this chic salon and ofcourse the guy with the sexy accent and great sense of what beauty is.Excellent job Umberto..

Wow, Crysdian is a master. This guy is such a breath of fresh air. He listens and executes! After years of paying a fortune on Park Ave and having so so cuts and colour, here comes this guy. New from Seattle, I believe he will be one of the tops in the city. He was precise, fast and just an amazing person as well as talented. I was never pressured into anything to buy, added on services ect, like most of the stylists in Manhattan do now. My hair feels and looks like a million bucks. He is not cheap, but not at all expensive compared to some salons in the area. Worth every dollar. My colour is BEAUTIFUL. I cannot keep from touching my hair. Crysdian is definitely a 5 star stylist....Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

I had to write about my experience at GIO SALON the other day.

As usual, at the last minute I needed highlights and a cut. I called my usual girl and could not get in. So, I called this salon, and got an appointment. I am so glad I fell into Crydian's hands. He not only was so attentive and listened , he genuinely cared about what I was saying. He gave me suggestions that I never had heard before, yet even thought for myself.
In the end my hair had never looked better. The highlights were so beautiful and shiny. They were so natural looking and still bright. All the years that I have lived in NYC Ive never had a haircut that was so fluid and modern. I look amazing. I almost skipped back to my office. When I got into my office all heads turned. I felt like a million bucks. I cannot recommend this guy more. Ive always said you get what you pay for, and in this case I definitely did. Crysdian is undeniably the best stylist Ive ever had. I urge everyone to see him. He just moved here from Seattle, so I believe in a few months he will be hard to get in with, thats why I rebooked my appointment immediately.

For those who had a bad experience I really don't know where you went,because I was treated like royalty. I was there on time and my hairstylist too. He was extreemly polite, infact everyone at the salon was very professional. I do admit the salon is small but that makes a difference. I don't want to go to the large salons ( factory salons ). I've had my share of these places and believe me they really mess up your hair,and also about the product that was used on my hair they used Moroccanoil products on me good stuff! The 12 foils of highlights were fantastic!!!! I also have medium brown hair and I did get the toner for an additional cost unless you want white lines all over it's the proper thing to do when you lift color you should deposit some sort of color to have the highlights blend every one knows that. I don't think it's fair to the salon and the professionals working there. End result I looked fantastic after I left my hair never felt so good.

After much deliberation I decided to cut my hair. I was going through a divorce, my mother is out of state and terminally. Due to all this stress, it went from being very long to medium length. It was breaking off and in terrible condition.
So, I'm super chicken because the last thing I need on top of everything else is a bad haircut. I bit the bullet and after calling several times and questioning them to death (they were super sweet and patient w/ me on the phone) I got the certificate and scheduled an appointment.
I am in love with my hair, again!!!!
Coco is the bomb and eeryone there is so nice. They were totally hospitable. I got the royal treatment. I wasn't rushed. Coco talked to me about my hair. He gave me a super cut that totally compliments my age and shape of my face. I thought I was going to have to go shorter, but he knew I would be unhappy and that I really didn't need to go short.
Everyone I know loves the way my hair looks and we talked not only about colors, but caring for my hair.
The new thing is the Morroccan Oil, I asked for it. Coco could have sold it to me in a heartbeat, but instead he told me "No, your hair is too fine, it will only weigh it down. You don't need it."
I wasn't pressured to buy anything. No products to take home. He actually showed me what he used. If I want to get it from a beauty supply shop I can.
Gio's is the best. I would tell anyone to go there. I'm going back in 2 weeks!

these are con artist! if i could give a negative 5 stars, i would!!

just like Alex H's review on 5/12, i also a coupon package that gives me image consulation, color conserve shampoo wash, scalp massage, deep conditioning treatment, haircut, blow-dry with style and finish, cellophane clear shine, and 12 foils of highlights.

sitting down, the stylist already gave me attitude. fluffing my hair like it's beneath him. then he started asking what do you want to do with your hair, i told him in general how i want my hair to change, then i ask him for suggestion. then he started saying, there's not much he could do base on what i said and i basically just needed a trim.

then comes the part that is a total CON!! he said that my hair is so dark that he can't just do the 12 foils, he needs to put in extra toner product in order for the highlight to take. granted i'm not blond, i have med shade brown hair. i've done hair coloring and highlights in my whole life without having the need to put the extra "toner" to bleech my hair. and the toner that he wants to sell me, was $60. (the stuff they want to sell my friend was $160!!!) and he keep on trying to push that on me, and ended every sentence with "do you know what i'm saying?" of course i'm not going to spend the extra $60 on some package that i've purchased for only $65. so i decline, and he wouldn't give me the 12 foils highlights. without the 12 foils, the package is worth nothing. i could get a very nice haircut elsewhere for $35 instead of the $65 that i paid!! so that's how the "image consultation" went!!

then it comes the part that really pissed me off!! as i was going thru the room towards the hairwash station, i passed by the receptionist area (the whole place is very small, smaller than my foyer at home) and saw the appt book. they only had me and my friend booked for an hour. when we made an appt, we specifically told them we have this package w/ the highlights. one would expect that the appt would be for at least 2 hours if not more. by putting us down for an hour each, they KNEW that they will force extra products on us with outrages prices and we would have no choice but to forgo the highlights and go with the cut only!! this is how they scam you!! either you go in and be force to spend another $100 or they charge you with $65 cut, that's not even worth it.

the lady who washes my hair was nice and gentle. i did try to remind her by asking if my package include a "scalp massage" (coz i read on some review that they totally skip that for some ppl), then she gave me a few mins of massage. a few mins was better than nothing, which was what happened to the friend that went w/ me. the shampoo and conditioner they use on my hair is hardly "color conserve shampoo" or "deep conditioning treatment", it's a regular shampoo and conditioner that felt pretty much like what you get from duane reade.

haircut wasn't too horrific but he did hit my head and forehead with either his brush or the blow-drying quite a few times. he blow-dry my hair too close to my scalp and i almost said something. but at that point, i don't really see the need of talk to those ppl anymore. other than a couple of moroccan oil, there's no finish at all. the styling was so bad that i was annoyed w/ my own hair the rest of the day.

i have more bad things to say, but i'm sure you get my point. DON'T GO TO THIS PLACE!!

I had a fabulous cut and very positive experience all around last night at Gio's. I had gotten the promotion and really wasn't expecting much, but I found the whole staff to be very warm and welcoming, and the energy to be very positive. Coco did my hair (which tends to be a matted, frizzy mess) and he really listened to me regarding my fears (not too short or I get "poodle head"). He did a great job thinning out the "Roseanne Roseannadanna" aspects of my hair, making it soft, curly and manageable. While I was there, three equally satisfied customers were also made joyful by the other stylists. The attention I got was well worth the price of the promotion, and I would recommned this salon without hesitation.

Wow! what a great experience. So It all started when we were approched by this guy selling an intro package to Gio Studio Salon,we took a look at the offer and went for it.So it was four of us we went and saw Gio, Andy,Tayla and Daniel.I can't figure out which one of us lokked better. We did color cuts and highlights.they were all flawless.the minute we walked in everyone was there ready to work with us,which is a plus because I'm tired of going to salons and waiting for hours to be seen. The staff ,and stylist were all highly professional. I have had my share of bad cuts and highlights,but this place made up for alot of those mistakes. We love you guys! we've gotten so many complements on our hair we'll be back for sure. A shout out to: Gio,Tayla,Andy, and Danile.

well, not sure how to take this, but i called to make an appointment, they claim to be booked until mid July. My work schedule changes weekly and i told the receptionist I'd call back closer to then to see about openings, and could stop in beforehand to see about cancellations/walk-in appointments. she said I could NOT just come in as a walk-in -- i HAD to make the appointment. now, i find THAT funny, as i read some reviews here of people who DID IN FACT WALK IN. of course, this was said to me after she heard I had "the package". her demeanor DID change after mentioning of "the package". why offer a package if you're just going to be difficult about the package? (i feel like a Seinfeld episode! HAHAH!) not for nothing, i find it very hard to believe they are solidly booked until then, and that i am NOT ALLOWED TO WALK IN?!?!?!? too funny..... :-/

I came to Gio Studio Salon because I purchased a package in Grand Central and i needed to have my hair done badly. When I arrived I had a five minute wait, and in that time the most professional hairdresser I've ever had the pleasure of doing business with greeted me - Michael! He was an absoulte joy. While he was finishing up his client before me, he kept asking how I was and if I needed anything. He made the environment very comfortable to be in and I was very pleased.
The packet I purchased involved a haircut, a conditioning treatment, clear celophane, semi-partial highlighting, image consultation, scalp massaging, and blowdrying (style and finish). At first I was only interested in the original packet, but Micahel offered some suggestions on upgrading the packet (which was 20% off - seems like a good deal to me). I decided to go with his suggestion and upgrade to a partial highlight. I was extremely happy with the results.
Here's the reason I was so happy with Michael - I have to admit I was never a fan of highlights because I felt they looked fake and streaky. But Michael told me about his own technique that he uses which is to go within the hairline and the shape of your head to create a more sun-kissed look, rather than streaky lines. After his great customer service I trusted him to make my hair look great. I LOVED the outcome!
I've also been afraid of haircuts, because we all know sylists love to go scissor-happy. This isn't the case with Michael. He listened and took into consideration everything I wanted. To make me extra comfortable, he blowdried my hair first, and then gave me a dry-cut. That way, there were no surprises. My hair turned out exactly how I wanted it to, and it's all thanks to Gio Studio Salon, their generous packets, and of course, my stylist, Michael. Definitely give this place a try!

I love the cast at this neighborhood hair salon. It is small but organized and the staffers are orchestrated brilliantly to be able to accomodate the heavy traffic flow. My only problem is with the pricing of the services. A partial highlight is $180 and a full head it will be $250 which is too steep. If I go for that and a haircut Iit would be close to $400

Hey Tara G,

The Package is a savings of over $250 dollars off of the regular prices. Don't forget you get a haircut and blow out, deep conditioning treatment, cellophane clear shine, and 12 foils of highlights all for $70 bucks! Introductory Packages can not be combined with other packages because they are to "Introduce" you to the salon and are for first time clients only. Once you do the package and have had your 12 foils you are no longer a NEW client. The packages can be shared with someone else, but not someone else who already has a package of their own. This is clearly stated in writing on the back in the CONDITIONS section. If you feel that one of our sales reps misinformed you then I am sorry, but this is clearly laid out in writing on the package itself. You can only share your package with a first time client. If you feel you were misinformed then please call our office and state your case for a refund on the cost of the packages and we will be glad to help you out!

The first time Michael cut my hair over a year ago, I realized I had gotten the best haircut of my life. Literally every single cut after has been an incredible experience as well. Michael is an artist -- his skills could not be more top notch, and he has an impeccable sense of style. On top of this, he is one of the nicest people you could ever meet. I always leave Gio feeling like a million bucks thanks to him.

Everyone else at Gio is very friendly as well. Gio herself has been cuts my boyfriends hard-to-manage curls, and he thinks she's great. From my personal experience, I have to say, you should definitely give this place a try. And if you schedule with Michael, you will not be disappointed.

My two friends and I purchased the Alternative Advertising packages. We were excited because two of us wanted to get haircuts and we were told all the 12 foils could be transferred so we were going to transfer 24 to add to Marlie's 12 which would equal 36 and she would get her highlights done. Well when we got there we were told the 12 foils could only be transferred to someone who didn't already have a package.
Question...does it take any more time to do 36 foils on someone rather than 12 foils on 3 people? Answer: No however then you can't be conned into purchasing an additional set of highlights which could mean potentially 3 additional purchases.
While this Alternative Advertising package seems like a deal what it is in reality is like a $20 coupon however they market it as if you are saving $300. The problem here is that Gio thinks she will develop customers from this but in reality she is going to be losing many potential customers down the road because once someone feels scammed that is that is a feeling that lasts forever.

I purchased the promotional ($60) offer, but didn't expect much. Boy, was I surprised!!! I was treated well from the minute I walked in the door. My stylist, Oscar, was exceptional! He listened to what I had to say, did not pressure me, and I left the Gio Salon feeling like a superstar. I will definitely return!!! My only regret is that I left feeling so relaxed and wonderful, that I forgot to tip the wonderful woman that gave me the deep conditioning/massage/ color shine treatment. PS...my color and cut and fantastic. The atmosphere (everyone in 'Gio') was outgoing, friendly and nice.
One tip: the foils offered for the $60 special, are bleach only, not color. Which was fine because my hair is lighter, but you may want to consider for darker hair.

I have been following Emily for over a year and have never been more satisfied with my hair color and cut. She is magic. When I first started going to her I had platinum blonde hair. My hair is naturally very dark, and people would always compliment the color and thought that was my natural hair color. After 6 years of being blonde, I decided to take Emily's advice and go brunette which was such a big decision for me. I could not be happier with the results and my new color. I also constantly get blow-drys from her, and she is the only person in the world who can get my hair to hold curls. She has such great energy and always makes me feel super comfortable. I could rave about her forever but basically she is an amazing talent that has never once disappointed me in over a year with my color or hair cut.. Gio salon is also great, go in and ask for Emily, she will change your life!! :)

Pros: Intimate salon experience/amazing hair stylist

.

I came into the shop from a package that I purchased.I went on line line to read the reviews reguarding this salon, I was very impressed with the reviews that I read . The reviews I read reguarding your hairstylist Michael were very impressive so I decided to make an appointment with him. Upon arriving to the salon I was greeted very warmly by everyone and offered something to drink. I was very excited about my visit because I was looking fo r a new look and wasnt quite sure what would look well on me. When I sat down in Michaels chair we talked about many different styles and color. Michael suggested that a nice rich vibrant red would look incredible on me,because I had the right skin tone for it and that it would make my green eyes pop. He gave me a beautiful hair cut which was very stylish and updated. When he was finished I felt young and beautiful.He was right on the money about the color and how it made my eyes pop. I have not stopped getting compliments since. I love my new color and my haircut and will definetly recomend all my friends to him. He was very professional and really knows his business. If your the type of person like myself who loves to be pampered in an quaint atmosphere where you are the center of attention then Gio Studio is the place for you. I have definetly found my new stylist and shop.

Pros: MICHAEL!!!!!!!!

Cons: small place but worth it

.

I have to say, I was skeptical of this whole package situation from the moment I signed up for it and was hesitant to even follow through with it because my hair is VERY important to me. I had to wait for quite some time but I was ok with that because Emily seemed very detailed and attentive with her previous client.

The size of the salon didn't really bother me. I was there at the end of the day so there wasn't many people in there and I actually enjoyed the intimate atmosphere and was quite relaxed.

Emily gave me a FABULOUS hair cut and my hair is not easy to cut. It's long and there's a lot of it! It seemed like she had fun cutting my hair which was rewarding for me, as I think it was for her because of a job well done!! Not only did she give me a great haircut, the blow out was AMAZING!! She really really shocked me! I'm sure I'll be back there soon because my hair grows so fast and I can't wait!

I'm sure Michael is as great as everyone says below but EMILY IS THE BEST!!!

I went for the Alternative Advertising package, which I was super skeptical about. (Note to the PR agency - all the men you employ really creep me out, however, I was approached by a really friendly & professional young woman, Jillian I think, and that's what finally made me feel comfortable enough to buy in...)
Michael was my stylist & really listed to me! I wanted to keep the length of my hair, but perk it up a bit & he did a great cut for that. In addition, he made a great suggestion about adding some highlights. I knew I didn't want to go blonde & he recommended a subtle red color just to bring a new dimension. I was leery about the extra expense... But I never treat myself & I'm glad I did it! The color IS subtle & very beautiful. Also thickened up my hair a bit which was a nice side effect. It's been about a month & everything is holding up really nicely!
I give 5 stars to Michael! And also the rest of the staff there was extremely friendly on the cold snowy day that I showed up. Thanks guys :)

I have to say that I got the BEST haircut ever! Thank you Michael. My hair looks like it is from vogue. I never thought my hair could ever look like this. I have very curly frizzy brittle hair and when I walked out of the salon, I felt like a super model. Michael you are the best!!!! I wish I needed a haircut everyday just to hang out there with you. The most adorable sweetest guy too. Everyone out there Go see Michael right away, because soon his waiting list will be forever.

Pros: The best haircut and style

.

I wasn't expecting such a small place- very tiny salon, limited waiting area, stylist and shampoo stations.

Anyways, I went to check in for my appointment that I booked 3 weeks prior in order to have an appointment with Gio herself. But when I arrived for my appointment, I was told that Gio "doesn't really focus on people who buy the package (see below)" so, my appointment was pushed aside to another stylist, then another one...

"The package"
- a $60 value Introductory Offer which gives you:
- Image consultation
- Color Conserve
- Scalp Massage
- Deep Conditioning Treatment
- Haircut
- Blow dry with style and finish
- Cellophane Clear Shine
- 12 Foils of Highlights
- Neck and shoulder Massage

Looks like it's worth it right? Well, if you don't get anything they up-sell you on -it's worth it because $60 or less is the value of their service. I purchased some extra color, (one of my friends went and said that the same stylist gave her attitude since she didn't want any more than the 12 Foils... awkward when you're trusting these guys with your hair).

During the few hours I was there, I saw people come and go - the place was crowded because people didn't have places to sit, put their belongings, etc. I had to wait for my stylist to finish with other people, then move to me, then rush with my hair to accommodate someone else - just very unorganized. Throughout the process, the stylist kept asking me over and over to rate them on CitySearch and I kept thinking "I'll write the review, just focus on my hair!"

In the end, I left liking the color of my hair but they charged me an extra $250 (just for color - note: this is including the "20% off") to get it done so it better have looked good.

As for the rest of the services offered on the package - it didn't surpass my expectations. In fact, I didn't get my neck and shoulder massage when I asked for it... they asked me that if I come back next time I'll get it.... we'll see.

Pros: I can't see any Cons it's heaven

Cons: none

I got sold the offer on the street which seemed like a good deal. I got to the salon and had to wait for my hairdresser who was late, not a big deal but not a great start. I explained that I didn't want to go blonde and wanted my own hair colour mixed with a lighter honey colour, he didn't listen and my hair went too blonde. You only get 12 foils so the back of my hair was brown and the front blonde, it didn't look blended at all, I was really disappointed. I said at the time I was unhappy but I basically got the reply that they weren't going to do anything.

The package also includes a 15 minute shoulder and neck massage and a very young assistant attempted to do this but he said he wasn't very good and it was the worse massage I have ever got. After a very cringing minute, I had to stop it.

I had to go to my regular hairdresser to sort out my bad colour and it cost be a further $140 so all in all a very expensive error. I would not recommend this salon based on my experience.

Pros: Quality Work

I've never been totally satisfied with my hair until Micheal started styling it. He has a wonderful eye for color and my hair is very bright red, like fire engine red. He gives great advice on how to maintain such a rich color that tends to leak. He has wonderful knowledge on products. He's perfect at suggesting cutting styles, my cut is perfect for my face. He always gives me funky yet classy styles. He's just the best at anything that comes to hair. He's alot of fun to talk with and I will always go back to him and suggest to all my friends to go to him also.

I decided to take a chance on Gio because of the intro deal I got through alternative advertising, and I'm so glad I did. I was planning to get a trim and maybe some highlights, but I could tell when I talked to Michael that he had a great eye for color, so I let him do a single process instead of highlights. My hair is now a gorgeous, rich red! I'm also someone who hates to sit for ages when I'm getting my hair cut, and I can honestly say that the cut I got took less time and was better (exactly what I asked for, and just BETTER) than any other I've found in New York. I moved from Montreal a few years ago, and it's taken me this long to find a stylist I trust as much as the one I went to up there. Also, the place is small/intimate, and everyone is friendly. I'm pretty shy, but I never once felt uncomfortable there. Highly recommend!

I was planning to get a trim and maybe some highlights, but I could tell when I talked to Michael that he had a great eye for color, so I let him do a single process instead of highlights. My hair is now a gorgeous, rich red! I'm also someone who hates to sit for ages when I'm getting my hair cut, and I can honestly say that the cut I got took less time and was better (exactly what I asked for, and just BETTER) than any other I've found in New York. I moved from Montreal a few years ago, and it's taken me this long to find a stylist I trust as much as the one I went to up there. Also, the place is small/intimate, and everyone is friendly. I'm pretty shy, but I never once felt uncomfortable there. Highly recommend!

Pros: professional, talented staff, great atmosphere

Cons: none I can think of

I went to gio's hair salon because I bought a package through an agency... Let me say it was the best hair cut experiance ever.. I got there and was greeted immediately and was treated to tea.. I'm one of those people that hates getting my hair cut....I absolutely dread it...but this made me feel so comfortable and I felt so at home! I couldn't believe such a great comfortable place existed! Micheal has a real talent for cutting hair! He did exactly what I asked him to do no questions asked... I'm amazed...I usually regreat getting my hair cut but in this case I was the happiest I've been with my hair...no matter what the cost I'm gonna keep going to micheal everytime for my hair cut!!! I'm in love!!! Thank you micheal for making me feel so beautiful

i went to gio salon through the ad agency. it's not a scam, i will say that; however, it's made out to be something absolutely unbelievable when perhaps not worthy.

When I watched the video that is on this site, I was dying of laughter. When sitting on the couches, you do not miraculously get wine or anything like that. In fact, when I first went in there I felt ridiculously cluttered.

I want to eventually have my hair grow long and so I was pleased that they did not get scissor crazy. They do listen to what you ask, and are nice people. I just don't see every ones obsession with it on this page, and that's why I decided to voice my opinion.

You're not going to go in and feel like you're at a spa; you will feel like you're going there to get a hair cut and then you will be on your merry way. I left happy, of course because my goal was to go, get a trim, and leave. Don't think this will be some life altering experience.

I'm sticking with my regular hair dresser. Again, this salon is good because it does its job, but that video is QUITE FAR FETCHED.

I have always been a person who wanted blonde hair; unfortanetly, I was never sure how blonde I wanted to go. The day I came in Gio Studio Salon, was the very first day that I met Michael, and he showed me the blonde I wanted to be. I had to come on this website and rate Michael, because I believe there should be more hairstylist like Michael.
Gio Studio Salon is a very friendly atmosphere with great people and super clean environment which caught me off guard compared to other salons I have been to in the past. I have to say, this experience will be one I never forget.

This salon was incredible. The introductory package was not only a fantastic deal but I will absolutely be returning. I had zero wait when I arrived, an amazing shampoo with a head massage, and Michael knew exactly what I needed when I told him what I was thinking. My cut is amazing and professional, he really changed my look for the better! Everyone is so hospitable and super friendly. Even the music was spot on. Highly recommended!
