I am not exaggerating when I say that Akemi is the best colorist in the city. I will follow her wherever she goes because she is extraordinarily knowledgeable and talented. I??m 61 years old and have my hair chemically straightened every four months, yet it looks fantastic thanks to Akemi??s ability to subtly change the color (and paint single strands of hair slightly lighter color). Every time I see her, she examines my hair??s color and texture in order to decide what to apply. And she??s a darling sweetheart and a good listener.

I have never gotten so many compliments on my hair! I followed Adrianna from another salon, and I have to say, she is incredible. She takes time to understand exactly what you're looking for and her attention to detail is amazing. I've gone from blonde, to chestnut, to red...all of which I have loved. She is fantastic!!

The salon is nice - very relaxing. Seems like you are stepping outside of Manhattan. It's a little tricky to find, but it's worth it. The staff is lovely.

The salon itself is beautiful. However, when I first walked in, the staff automatically assumed that I was a hair model and was there for future stylists to practice on me.
Marina did my highlights She was nice, but told me I had to blow dry my hair on my own! Even my friends who are hairstylists can't blow dry their own hair (because it's harder when you are blow drying your own hair).
When I tell some people who I know about this experience, they don't believe me, but it is so true. Otherwise I would not waste my time writing this review.

Akemi is the best hair color stylist in NY. I should know because I have been getting my dark ash blonde hair made into a better brighter gold blonde by her for many years now and I have even followed her to this salon. Her eye for color and mixing what you need is not matched at other places. One can become a fake yellow blonde at any salon in the city but to get a natural look is another story. People often come up to me to ask where I got my hair styled but say your color is natural of course! Akemi is also a delightful positive person and is flexible appointment wise when you need a quick fix. She is not expensive and totally worth every penny.

I went to Riccardo himself for a new look. I went with my sister for moral support. I hadn't changed my look in 5 years. We both ended up getting new looks. After the birth of my baby my hair was limp and was falling out. Riccardo gave me an amazing cut and the right products for my hair including hair vitamins. My sister on the other hand had curly frizzy hair. She got the Brazilian Keratin treatment and a Hair cut. We both look great. In fact, we looked so good we went out for dinner afterwards because we just couldn't go home when we looked that good. Thanks Riccardo, your a genius.

I had been a client at RM for awhile, always going to Leslie for my cut & BKT & Akemi for my color. When I called this week to schedule my monthly appointment, I was really sorry to be told that Leslie is no longer with RM. The rude receptionist was not even gracious enough to let me know where I could contact Leslie. Luckily, I did some research on the internet and was able to locate him at his new digs, Capelli D'oro on Fifth, where he did his thing beautiful as usual.

Leslie Correa delivers what he promises! I have been a client of Leslie's for 3 years and continue to enjoy astounding results. My hair, once extremely curly, frizzy and a nightmare to deal with every day, has been transformed into a sleek and chic style that I always envisioned myself having. Not only do Leslie and his colleagues produce straight silky hair with their expert Brazilian Keratin treatment techniques, they offer life and depth to my hair each appointment with subtle highlights and a stylish cut. I am always 100% satisfied with the results and Leslie's talents as a stylist. Prices are also moderate but well worth it. I'll be returning this month and can't wait!

Akimi has been my colorist for 15+ years. She is by far the most talented hair colorist. She looks at my skintone and determines how light/dark, whether I need hi lights, eyebrows lightened, etc. I am fortunate to have such talent and a gentle and sensitive, respectful personality. I adore Akimi. You will too.

Firstly, I am not one to usually write review---but I am so impressed that I have to take the time to explain my experience at the Riccaardo Maggiore salon. I am not a stranger to higher end salons in New York. After having a terrible experience at a salon I have been a patron for over two years (over-processed highlights resulting in breakage)?I spent a good part of the winter just looking for a new place to color and style my hair.
After sifting through citysearch reviews, I booked an appointment for highlights and cut. I have fairly long curly hair and am always petrified of the scissor-happy stylist.
My colorist and stylist was Antonio. After warmly welcoming my mother and I (who was also there for color and a cut), he started his consultation. Initially, I was shocked when he stated that he was not going to use bleach for my highlights. I naturally have medium brown hair and kept thinking I was going to walk out as a redhead. Not so. My color is simply remarkable?there are no other words.
I am also extremely pleased with the cut ?for curly girls afraid of the scissor and blonds sick of being brassy?Antonio can quite honestly transform your hair.
The staff is warm and friendly (no pretentiousness here) and prices are reasonable for the service and attentiveness you receive.

Leslie has been doing my hair for years. I followed him to this new location. Its in a great area, with lots of space. Leslie is amazing! He has done Japanese straightening on my hair several times with beautiful results. His cuts, color, and styling are fantastic. Prices are very reasonable for such top-quality service. He is a very intuitive, expressive, and caring person who will spend a lot of time fully explaining everything to you and putting you at ease before he does anything to your hair. I've been to the best stylists in both New York and L.A. and nobody else can hold a candle to him. He also offers Great Lengths hair extensions. I've seen pictures of his work with these & you can't even tell they are extensions, they look so natural. I am getting this service done sometime next year & will update my review then. Leslie advised me to get my hair in the best possible shape before getting them. He has very high integrity.

Leslie at RM is amazing with coloring. I have dark hair and always prefer brown highlights over blond highlights. I've tried many other salons and have gotten all colors of the rainbow as opposed to just brown. Leslie used "baliage" technique as well as full color. I've also gotten haircuts from Leslie in the past which have been great as well. He cuts the appropriate amount of length and listens to your needs.

When I was first introduced to Rick Buckler at Riccardo Maggiore Salon, I was trying to figure out how I would get rid of the technicolor tones and shades of unwanted colors that had settled into my hair and return to my natural color. I had gone gray at a fairly young age, and was always a bit anxious about the whole coloring process. I had seen two colorists over the years - prior to Rick - and can say with confidence I have found the right person to turn any tricks my aging hair may pull - back on track. Rick Buckler is an extremely talented professional colorist who also has a great sense of humor and humanity. How lucky I feel to be able to spread the word on such a special find in this big city!

I was visiting NYC - I knew this place was good, but didnt know who to have. BY luck i get Ernie... I would never go to a different hairdresser but mine in London had just left the salon so I was about 2 months into needing a good cut but too afraid to try a new one. This guy was honest about my hair and gave me confidence to try something different. I love hairdressers that know what looks good on people and not afraid to make suggestions. I will def go back to him when i am visiting NYC. I would recommend him to anyone. A very nice man with a really great sense of humor too! I LOVE MY HAIR CUT...

I went to the Riccardo Maggiore salon last week, and I'm so glad I did. This was the first time I went to Marina and she gave me the best highlights I have ever had in my life! She talked to me about my hair and suggested a highlight lowlight technique with a conditioning glaze to tone the hair. Always before at other salons I have had the foils in my hair, but Marina treated my hair like silk. She painted each highlight and lowlight like an artist. The results were amazing! So natural and close to the root. This will definitely last me a long time! I'm so glad I tried someone different. And I have to say that unlike a lot of hairdressers who seem stuck up and chit chat so much that I feel like I have to make small talk about their lives instead of just relaxing. Marina is super-nice and friendly, not superficial. We talked for a bit and then I was able to read my book and enjoy my (complementary) cappuccino and leave feeling great. Also the front desk was very attentive and they validated my parking ticket. I'm so happy with my highlights. Thank you Marina!

I want to thank city search for allowing me to read reviews. Thanks to The Lamas Beauty message board for the comments about Leslie Correa. (Formerly of Capelli D?Oro Salon) I went and saw him last week for my color correction. My hair was severely damaged due to bad color at another salon in the area! Leslie fixed my hair and did a Keratin treatment that made my hair feel luxurious again. My color looks amazing too. He is so professional and very handsome. I found my new colorist!

Although the salon is 'high end', and the stylists (at least the one who serviced me) are good, there is something missing. When I visited the salon this week, I called to confirm my time and it took for-ev-er for my call to be answered. Then, when I arrived, the check in process wasn't at all smooth. You'd think this type of salon would have this down. If you are watching your dollars, try somewhere else. This was my first visit to this midtown salon, but I'll be looking for someone else next month.

Leslie Correa is the best Brazilian Keratin and Japanese straightening expert in NYC. He turned my chemically destroyed, frizzy, out-of-control hair into such gorgeous shiny straight hair that colleagues often pass me by without recognizing me. Last year, he closed his salon (Capelli D?Oro) and took Mayra and a few other staff members to Riccardo Maggiore. This is a truly beautifyl, elegant, and classy salon, so the first time I went there, I was nervous (because I'm a "sweats and sneakers" woman). But Riccardo came over to greet me and was charming. And like him, his staff is friendly and warm. And like me, most of the clients wear jeans and sneakers.

Before I met Leslie, my hair always looked dreadful because it was wiry, frizzy, and badly damaged from all the processes I had tried over the years (reverse perms, straightening, ironing it, etc). At the end of my consultation, he said, ?I sense how terribly nervous you are. Please trust me. I promise that I?ll be totally honest with you and I won?t do anything to damage your hair.? And he was true to his word: He made my straight and shiny, and it NEVER frizzes. Most of the time, I don?t even blow-dry it. I just comb it and let it dry straight.

I have now had six BKTs done by Leslie, and each one made my hair feel and look healthier. And Leslie?s wife Mayra is a talented colorist who colors my hair every three weeks (because I?m totally gray). She also decided to do ?baliage? than putting in highlights because it?s softer, more natural, and less damaging. (She paints with a needle-sized brush.)

Going to a hair salon used to be an embarrassing, painful experience for me. Now, going to see Leslia and Mayra at this lovely salon is like having a mini-vacation!

Pros: Experienced, competent professionals; relaxed friendly atmosphere

Cons: none

Cons: Overpriced, senior citizen clientele

I came to Riccardo Maggiore with a big problem, - resistant grays and hair that was very very black. . My hair was a medium brown but colorist over the years in many different salons just kept making my color darker to cover these resistant gray hairs that refused to take the color. Marcus, the colorist at the salon brought my hair to its natural color. He truly knows what he is doing and understands color. All I get is complements from family, friends and strangers asking where I go to get my color done.

I am a regular client at the salon and have been getting my hair colored there for over a year. Marcus Garcia does an excellent job. He is truly an artist. I have never been disappointed with his work. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family or anyone who is looking for the best dye job. Marcus takes time to listen to his clients and is very professional and friendly. Marcus is a true talent with color and I am happy to tell people who did my hair.

I had a makeover at the Riccardo Maggiore Salon. I had tried a number of high end salon over the past 15 years but this one is truely a great find, I happened to go there for the first time the day after they filmed a shoot for the "Sx in the City movie". I can see why they chose to film there Its a great salon. My first time there I had my hair cut and color done by Riccardo and my eyebrows done by Elena. They were outstanding. I had a thorough consultation with Riccardo, he asked me about my work, lifestyle, he discussed the looks I liked and why they would or would not work. Riccardo's hair cuts last forever. Elena the waxing specialist is a perfectionist. I have never seen my eyebrows look this good. I have very difficult eyebrows, I have a scar and my eyebrows were uneven but they have never looked as good. I have been back a number of time since then and the services are always great. By the way there are added bonuses. The salon is beautiful and the staff is great .

I recently tried the Riccardo Maggiore Salon, and I have to say, the experience was incredible! The salon staff are so attentive to details and really know hair. My stylist talked with me about my lifestyle, how much I wanted to invest in doing my hair and also about what would look best for my features. I'm always nervous going to a new salon, but I love my hair and plan to keep coming back!

Pros: Beautiful salon; everyone is a pro; courteous staff; espresso bar

I was going to another salon in midtown for a couple of years, and was tired of the snobby attitude and feeling like a stranger every time I showed up.

RM is awesome - it is classy but not snobby, everyone is very friendly. It is expensive, but you get what you pay for.

This salon was a true find. The best haircut I have ever had and the blow dry lasted for nearly 4 days.

New York can be a confusing city. There is an abundance of everything. I went to the salon not knowing what to expect. But as I walked through the doors I felt at ease. The salon is beautiful and it is relaxing. You feel your in a special place when you walk in. Everyone is polite and friendly. I had an amazing head massage and the best haircut ever.

Not the place to go if you want consistent waxing and nails done without having to worry about what the wax/nailcare/facialist in residence is going to do to you without your permission. She talks too much during the work (waxing is a precise job!) and makes too many mistakes. Moreover, she does ask your opinion of the things that she wants to try. I have been to her a few times (she shall continue to remain unnamed) but I have since found the best place to go: J Sisters (57th btw 5&6).
