I have tried the salon a few times. The first colour seemed OK, after that a waste of money. Both my colourist and cutter left the country and i had been shopping for a new salon. Read the reviews and thought i would give it a try. both for colour and cut. Consistently terrible haircuts and I tried a couple of stylists, terrible overprice blow drys and after the first time, consistent terrible colour.
dont waste your money (and its an expensive salon) and go somewhere else

.I have been going to Minardi for ten years. My colorist Victoria has been taking care of me since day one. She is such a perfectionist. The color that she does for me is perfect for my skin and eyes. it is always shiny and healthy. Every appointment she looks at my hair as though it is a new canvas making necessary adjustments based on a situation. She and Larisa always make me feel at home but also provide me with the most amazing service. I can't say enough about my Glam Team. This is the most consistent hair color I had in my entire life. I know every appointment there willt be no surprises. Always perfect

I have been going to Minardi for three years now and will never go to another salon again! My colorist Gion is the best I have ever been to, he knows what I want and need without ever having to tell him and it is perfection every single time! After my color I always go to Meghan for my hair cut and blow out. She really listens to what I want and does exactly what I want. If you are like me and have long hair I am sure you have experienced the "long layers" hair cut when they chop off all your hair, with Meghan she knows what she is doing and her blow outs are sensational! Gion always comes by to chat and see how my color is progressing! The atmosphere at Minardi is great I love being there so do yourself a favor and try them out make sure to ask for Gion and Meghan!!!

PS I love their products as well very light on your hair.

I have been visiting Minardi for a little over 6 months.

Gion is the most fantastic colorist. He is understanding of what looks good on you. I have visited him and shown him pictures of what I want and without a double take is gone to mix it up.
He is a genius with color.
I am at the point where I tell him lighter or darker and he knows what to do.

He suggested I get a cut and blow out from Meghan.
She is AMAZING.
She is attentive to what I want - easy to blowout, low maintenance etc. She gives me a cut I can manage to blowout and look great!
Her skillset is hard to come by and I have suggested several friends to her - they all love her!

The staff at Minardi is all so professional. Its a GREAT salon and there is someone there for every one.

I've been going to Minardi for two years now, and I still can't believe I've convinced myself to pay $135/cut; I used to cut my hair myself or go to Supercuts ($12.99) - but I would be hard pressed to go elsewhere anymore!

As a woman with very thin hair (I can hold it all up in a single bobby pin), I have a hard time looking professional, and had basically given up on my hair looking good - I just pinned it up and never cut it, for years. But Tammy at Minardi was able to cut my hair in an age-appropriate, attractive way, so I can blow it out and leave it down. I find the staff friendly and professional, and I've never been disappointed with the cut - to me, it's magic! She's made me look much more like a regular person -and I love it.

I'm not quite sure how they got such a great reputation, but I had a horrible experience coloring experience there. I hated the color, hated what the stylist did, and when I told the front desk that I was unhappy, was reprimanded for complaining.

For $500 or $600 I think that they should at least be polite!

Pros: none

Cons: had to come home and wash out the color myself

.

After an horrific experience I'm struggling to figure out how they got their reputation... my colorist was a complete pain and after paying hundreds of dollars I went to Ray's beauty supply and bought something to take the color out because it was so awful

Go get a box of Clairol and do it yourself--you'd be happier.

The warm welcoming atmosphere and calm environment of the Minardi Salon makes it an oasis for its regular clients and those visiting the city. Everything there is designed to make looking your personal best easy and fun. Beth and Carmine are generous with their knowledge (they will help you maintain your look wherever you live or may travel) and a true dream team. All of the colorists stylists co-operate and co-ordinate with each other. (Your hair color formula is on file, so anyone on staff can keep you looking great.)

Marc Minetti is my personal hair therapist---his great red has even me convinced I am a natural redhead! A visit with Marc is a true pleasure, and afterwards you will know that the right haircolor is better than any make-up or any outfit. When Marc is busy, I enjoy seeing the lovely Victoria, the charming Camille. On the assistant side, Gion is the up and coming star, and Chloe makes every visit a pleasure. (When you call, Heather and the rest of the desk staff do their utmost to accomodate you with an appointment, whether you call in a total hair emergency or you are planning ahead.)

On the stylist side, John James wields his sure scissors and his sure wit, and is a genius with rollers. Carmine Minardi's super assistant, Laura, now holds her own chair, and offers divine styling, including full curly styles that make me feel as if I've had my hair done in Paris! Laura is also that rare haircutter who truly will cut as little as you want---she can trim your hair so that it looks LONGER. I love this young lady, and am happy to be in her chair whenever I can. She improves not just my hair, but my mood. Whether getting me ready for a busy work week or a special night out or a public appearance, Laura is the best! A perfect darling, and a highly skilled professional at once!

In my years at Minardi I've lost count of how many on the staff have colored, cut, and blown dry or curled my hair with attentiveness, complete and total competence, and always, a warm welcome.

The Minardis stock an excellent line of hair care products--I've tried many, but their own are just the top. Your hair color stays fresh and vibrant with the shampoos and conditioner, and their cream oil is a true salon secret made available to you for use at home. The Minardi team wants you to look good not just on salon day, but every day. Ask about their own line when you check out....

A compliment from sweet Estella at the changing rooms when you leave sends you out feeling just marvelous.

Thank you, Beth and Carmine and everyone at Minardi. You are a class act all the way.

Over the years I have used many salons for my hair. Minardi Beauty Salon out ranks them all.
My colorist TOMAZ is gifted in providing the perfect color. You cannot tell that my color is from a bottle. He checks my hair at the beginning of every visit, and mixes the color to fit my hair's needs.
JOHN JAMES is my stylist. I always get compliments whenever I get a haircut. He knows how to frame my hair, so that I always have a perfect coiffure. One can judge an excellent haircut by its look when we have to do it ourselves. My haircuts are excellent
REBECCA does my blowout when I just get color. She is courteous, and efficient. She always does a great job.
TATIANA is an assistant. She does all all the followup care on my color. She does an excellent job too.
All the personnel at MINARDI'S make a concerted effort to please their clients.

I was referred to the Minardi Salon by a friend and was told that i would not be dissapointed....He was absolutely right. From the moment i walked into the salon, everyone was very friendly and nice and asked if i wanted anything to drink etc...My colorist, Tohmas Elmluhd, did such an amazing job that the compliments are still coming. I walked in a blond and he turned me into a gorgeous red with copper low lights just how i wanted. The color was PERFECT and came out exactly as i asked. His assistant Tatyana, was a great help and super nice. Laura Melishen cut my hair and did an amazing precise job..she gave me just the right cut for my face and cut my bangs to perfection...
Hands down the best salon I ever been to and so worth it!!!

About a year ago, I had made the huuuge mistake of trying to dye my hair by myself. I was sick of going all of the way home to find the right colorist and figured that it wouldn't be that hard. Yeah right! I ended up with a blonde/orangey mess for hair and needed a quick fix.

Victoria Natapov not only fixed my do-it-myself awful color but she made my hair come alive again. She achieved exactly what I had been trying to do for years with other stylists that hadn't been successful. I have finally found the perfect place in the city that is convenient and the people are knowledgeable. Not only is Victoria a hair color genius, she works magic too! I get complements on my hair color everywhere I go.

Thank you Victoria and Minardi Salon!

i have been going to carmine and beth minardi's salon for over 12 years. i was first introduced to carmine and beth through my then boss, designer nicole miller- and i have never left their trusted hands!

the entire staff is friendly and experienced. i personally go to carmine for AMAZING cuts. he transforms your hair. he brings new life into my thin, fine hair and every time i leave his chair i feel like a new woman- forget therapy- just go spoil yourself with a cut by carmine. he and beth run a professional, friendly- but very chic new york salon- everything you would expect from a perfect salon- and a manhattan salon.

for color i regularly see tohmas elmlund. wow! he transformed by over blonde colored hair back to a sophisticated blonde with darker low lights. he is a master of color along with beth. tohmas is also a painter and you can see from his results he is a true 'artist' of hair color. i can't imagine now trusting my color to anyone else. tohmas also listens to me if i feel like going a bit more blonde for summer or a bit deeper for winter- he applies his experience and expertise to what he thinks is best for my skin color. he's a true gentleman and professional.

don't forget john james, rebecca and the rest of the staff.
i feel comfortable going to any staff member there.
i regularly go for blowouts and now they offer wonderful pedicures and manicures from genius yuko. very private and all organic.

Going to Minardi salon is truly a wonderful experience. You take the elevator up to the 5th floor and enter a special environment where everyone is friendly and helpful. I have been having my haircut at Minardi's for over eight years. There has not been one time when I have not been happy with either my haircut or the service that I have received. I would never think of going anywhere else. Sincerely, Sherry Marks

i had bright red hair which i loved TOHMAS created it
but i needed a change i felt: blondes have more fun
so 6 months later TOHMAS made me the most beautiful blonde.. Every step of the way each color was perfect
he did it in steps so that he didn't damage my hair.
He's a very nice and thoughtful colorist.

I would recommend him to any man or woman of any age.

I have been going to Minardi for years. I am a reporter who has worked at NY1 and now at News 12 and MSG plus and I don't have the luxury of "taking chances" with my cut and color. It has to be right every time or else I'm in trouble on air. Paula is a genius at making my blond highlights so bold and bright, and yet so incredibly natural. And Stephen Wang has literally created me a signature look for on air that many viewers have come to call my "angular bob." Every time I go out I get the same two questions "Where do you get your hair done" and "Do you get your hair highlighted? I love the color but you can't even tell it's highlights." PS- My cut is on the website if you want to check it out. It's a blond "posh-esque" angular bob and my face is turned in a way where one of my eyes is covered with my hair.

Minardi is a special place due to the incredible professionals who work there. John James is the reason I became a customer of the Minardi Salon and I am thrilled he found a home there a number of years ago. You arrive and are greeted by the wonderful front desk reception staff. The assistants are also terrific as is the delicious complimentary white wine and various beverages they kindly offer.

John James is the consummate professional. He knows hair and is an excellent listener. A winning combination. Explain to John James your specific hair problems,thoughts, questions and he will discuss numerous ways to create the desired look you might be after. There is nothing John James cannot do. As a veteran in the business for at least 15 years, you will leave his chair looking like yourself only 10 times better!

I can't say enough about Minardi Salon. First off, the customer service is amazing. Everyone --- from the reception staff to Beth and Carmine Minardi -- goes out of their way to make you feel at home. It also a very guy friendly salon.

Beth is nothing short of amazing. She is friendly, funny and is truly a master at her craft. While Beth chatted about surfing, she and her talented and amazing assistant Angela transformed my graying brown hair into a super cool blonde that was both hip and classic. I wish I could bottle how I felt when I walked out of Minardi that day because I felt as hot as Brad Pitt.

Before I found Minardi, I had a string of horrific experiences -- so bad that my daughter once wrote a letter to Santa asking him to bring her mother a pretty hair color -- and she read it to her entire first grade class! I love my hair again. I found Beth after reading that she'd done Renee Russo's red for The Thomas Crowne Affair. I was with her for years. Then because I had to change my schedule, I tried Paula and she's fabulous too. Stephen does my cuts and I love him. One of the things I really appreciate about this salon is the level of service. Everybody who works at Minardi is nice. And everybody's talented -- hair, nails, waxing. I wouldn't go anywhere else. If your hair affects the way you feel about yourself, this is the place to come.

So I've been coloring my hair for more than half my life (well growing up in 90210, I was a regular at Vidal Sassoon by age 15 before branching out to other LA stylist) then in 2002, I moved to NYC for grad school and didn't know where to go! My whole self image is wrapped up in my hair, if I feel like I have roots I might as well put my head underground! I happened to luck out finding Beth Minardi - probably one of the best colorist in the country and I've been around.. They really pick colors that suit you, I look and feel amazing everytime I walk out of Minardi's.
Beth and all her trained staff Paula is really fun if you can't get in with Beth or you want to come on Saturday. Shout out to Gion who's up n coming! Tammy has been cutting my hair for the past seven years, sometimes she's taken but I'm always taken excellent care of whether by Carmine Minardi himself or cheerful young Laura.
I agree that everyone who works for the salon will do EVERYTHING possible to make you happy, a very personal touch down to the coat check ladies and the receptionists. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you CANNOT GO WRONG! :-) Erika

So I've been coloring my hair for more than half my life (well growing up in 90210, I was a regular at Vidal Sassoon by age 15 before branching out to other LA stylist) then in 2002, I moved to NYC for grad school and didn't know where to go! My whole self image is wrapped up in my hair, if I feel like I have roots I might as well put my head underground! I happened to luck out finding Beth Minardi - probably one of the best colorist in the country and I've been around.. They really pick colors that suit you, I look and feel amazing everytime I walk out of Minardi's.

Pros: great place, people, Products (Kerastasse etc plus some home blends) Amazing service!

Cons: they're not open 7 days a week ;)

I've been getting my haircut by Rebecca for almost 5 years. She is GREAT. She listens and remembers what you want. She makes suggestions on new styles/lengths, but never makes a change unless you agree. Although the salon is on East 61st Street, it is most welcoming - no snob appeal here. If you are looking for a great cut, try Rebecca and you will return time after time!!

I was very hesitant about changing salons after 10 years as red is a very hard color. Then I met Paula. Aside from a great sense of humor she is one of the most talented colorists I have ever met. If color is slightly off it changes the entire your entire look. Paula matched the red exactly to my skin tone and surprised me with a beautiful red. Not only was the color natural looking, but it was filled with all different hues giving it the look of highlighted hair.
Rebecca is wonderful. She takes her work very seriously, but alway with a big smile. She listens to you...a rarity amongst stylists. It's important that you walk out Minardi feeling good about yourself and works with you on just the right cut for your face, lifestyle, etc. She is thoughtful and considerate. She actually came in on a Saturday at 8 a.m. do style my hair for a wedding and it looked beautiful.
Thank you Paula and Rebecca for always making my experience with Minardi a good one!
These two are the best!

This salon has been a favorite of mine for years. The decor is modern and elegant and the feel of the place is very chic. All the staff I've encountered there, from the receptionists to the assistant stylists and colorists have been warm, friendly and professional. Beth fixed my hair after I'd had it fried by another salon and I was very happy with the results. She took my very yellow hair and gave me great, subtle highlights and darker pieces. It took a bit longer than some places that just do all-over color, but it was one hundred percent worth it. Carmine is very knowledgeable and was able to handle even my unruly hair and gave me a fabulous cut after an in-depth and comforting consultation. Tammy, one of the senior stylists, has also cut my hair once or twice and she has also done an excellent job in giving my hair a great shape even when I just air-dry it.
I've also started using Carmine and Beth's new products designed for color-treated hair. It's really good stuff--I have very coarse, curly hair and this shampoo and conditioner has put a lot of moisture back into my hair without making it greasy or heavy-feeling. It is comparable, if not preferable to the Kerastase products I'd been using for ages. They also have a great hair masque treatment that I use once every week or two that allows my hair to feel really good even though I highlight it. My hair hasn't been this healthy since before I started coloring it.
This is a salon I recommend highly. I always have a relaxing and satisfying experience. They just got a new manicurist who is also really excellent and who gave a very thorough, gentle manicure--she cleaned up my cuticles without just nipping them and tearing them off and my polish lasted for a good five days or so, which for me is unheard up.
I can't say enough good things about this place. If you have the means to do so, I'd say go.

I have been going to Minardi for over ten years-- it is a world class hair salon, with first class service. Kudos to Beth and Carmine for setting a high professional bar, and training the entire staff to provide individual attention in a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere.

Tohmas does my colour, and he has done a wonderful job ; he has been particularly helpful working with me as I have gotten grayer over the last few years. He LISTENS to what you are trying to achieve, and makes recommendations. He has a great talent in creating a subtle, natrual look, with a kick! He is also a delightful individual, and a very talented artist.

Equally talented is Tammy; she has been cutting and styling my hair for a number of years. Tammy has worked with me on different styles over the years, as I have gone form shoulder length ,to short to back to shoulder length. She has always given me a cut that is stylish, AND easy to maintain. Tammy has a winning combination of great talent, and a delightful personality.

I look forward to my Minardi visits.

I am so lucky to have my hair cut and colored at the same salon! Tohmas has been coloring my hair for 11 years and he is fabulous! Only my old friends in Texas know that I am not really a redhead! Tohmas is a color specialist and has worked his magic as my hair has grown a bit more gray over the years. He is a dear person and a painter/artist in his own right. What more can you ask?

John has been cutting and styling my hair for several years and I have never been happier. He is the one who finally got it right!
