I've been going to Gucci now for over a year. I actually followed her from her last salon. She is excellent. I have very long hair and she knows I don't like to get it cut much so when she does cut it, she cuts exactly what I want but if she feels that it is not healthy and more needs to be cut she will recommend it but again will do exactly what I want. Always get compliments when I leave the salon. She's professional and personable.

As far as the salon and rest of the staff, love them too. Very friendly and very welcoming. From the receptionist Sangria to the girls that wash your hair.....Ruby and Ten. They are just the best.

Possibly the best Salon experience I have ever had. I decided to cut my extremly long hair to above shoulder length. Gucci gave me the the exact style I wanted and was incredibly considerate. Cutting long hair can be an emotional experience and she was there with me every step of the way making sure I was alright. They were professional, but more than that, they gave good old fashioned customer service with a healthy helping of friendliness. Not to mention...I love my hair!!! From the receptionist Sangria, to Brazil who did the washing and of course Gucci the sylist, it was simply a good time! To all of you ladies...Thank you!!!

Pros: Attentive, Inexpensive, Professional

The whole staff are true professionals but yet make you feel like family. They give you the best service and fantastic looking hair every time you set foot in the salon and when you leave the salon people take notice. Who wouldn't want that? Everyone is engaging and personable from the manager superstar Sting to my favorite the fabulous one and only Glase who can make your hair gorgeous in minutes from a faux mohawk to super straight hair. I always get compliments regarding my hairstyles that were styled by Glase at events and parties. I would highly recommend this salon.

Excellent, friendly place. They make you feel like you made a really good choice by selecting them. Feels like a $100 haircut, and a men's haircut is only $30 including shampoo.
They even gave me free products!
Highly, highly recommended.

I normally do not have the time to write reviews, but because I highly recommend Dramatics located at 1488 3rd Avenue I am taking the time to write this review. Sting is the manager of this awesome salon. He has been my stylist for about 4 years now. I moved to NYC about 5 years ago and during the first year that I was here, finding a hairstylist who I could trust to cut my hair was such a nightmare. My first hairstylist in NYC did not have any personality and was not very dependable, Then the second hairstylist that I had was talented and skilled but unfortunately he died from a heart attack in the subway. I was devastated! I was then recommended to try Dramatics and that is when I found STING who became my angel, my hero & eventually my friend. STING is gorgeous & has a great physique--what a body! More importantly he understands what type of career I have & how I should look in front of my clients, what hairstyles look good on me, & what hair color would look great on me. I look forward to all of my hair appointments with Sting. He can tell you that I am probably his most punctual client and I always show up for my appointments and if I am not able to make the appointment I will make sure to cancel in advance because I do respect his time and want to make sure that he has enough time to book another appointment. I have asked advice from him, shared many of my life experiences with him, joked and laughed with him, exchanged stories about my travels with him, danced with him, enjoyed his scalp massages & shoulder massages, and he will even play bongos for his clients, and on my birthday he had one of his staff, buy me a bottle of wine to celebrate my special day! I have never had a hairstylist who has taken such good care of me! It is an adventure everytime I get my haircut with Sting. He makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world everytime I go home from his salon. THANKS FOR MAKING ME FEEL AND LOOK SO GOOD STING. I WISH YOU SUCCESS ALWAYS! -JOYCE-

I am originally from Italy and have tried many different hair salons in NYC but I was never really happy with their work. This is until I found Sting at the Dramatics hair salon. He loves what he does and it shows, he knows what style really means. Sting is not only a very good stylist but also very professional, a good listener and he gives good advice as to what looks best on me. I like to change my hair color every now an then and no matter what I ask him to do it always turns out perfect! With Sting as your stylist satisfaction is guaranteed! Furthermore the staff at the Dramatics Salon is very friendly (especially Ruby) and they are a lot of fun as well. They truly work together as a team. In short, if you are looking for a hair salon with a great atmosphere and a great stylist who knows his job, go to Dramatics on 3rd Ave. Sting is the best!!!

I have been to most of the expensive salons in NYC throughout the 11 years I have lived in here. I got tired of spending so much money & coming out with a so so haircut. That's when I discovered Sting at Dramatics. He is extremely talented, unique, professional, personable & makes you leave feeling like a million bucks. I get more compliments on my hair than ever. He really listens but also uses his trained eye to compliment your face the best.. His years of practice are always evident. He is a hidden treasure on the Upper East Side. I promise you won't be disappointed!!

I asked for one cut and got another. Someone nicknamed "picasso" cut the top so short that I have to keep it down with bobby pins. I had asked for a trim of my shoulder length hair and I got this layered short mess. Maybe he was aptly nicknamed because my hair looked like one of the real Picasso's abstract painting when he was done! Do not go to this salon. It may be cheap, but you get what you pay for!

I LOVE the Dramatics NYC 3rd Avenue Salon!!!! I can't speak for the rest of the Dramatics Salons because I know that Sting (the manager) has everything to do with why this salon is so great..... Sting cuts and colors my hair to perfection. His whole staff is darling.... (shout out to Ruby and Dutchess) :) I can't say enough how fabulous the salon is, Its a friendly, happy place...reasonably priced... always has appointments. I've got extremely curly, high maintenence hair and I never leave disappointed. I'm a bi-coastal girl, with a zillion different salon experiences, and by far this the best, all around hair salon in my travels!!! Cheers to Sting and his awesome hair mecca....Thanks!

I have been to this salon several times and I have had several people cut and color my hair. While it was nothing to write home about, I didn't cry either. I take that as a good sign. I may go back here for my next cut or I will bone up and pay the $150 to have a fancy person cut my hair. Average price for a cut and blow dry : $60

I was referred to Angel by a former girlfriend of a friend of mine. She was pretty good at her skill and the prices were reasonable. However she was impossible to get an appt with so I constantly got my hair done by someone else. The once I got a haircut by soprano, which was excellent, however when I returned he had left their salon. Then I came back again and Angel had left and i had nikita on two occaisions. She is good but I think she doesnt listen to the customer bc I told her what would work and she did what she wanted anyways. Overall descent place and good prices but the stylists leaving makes it hard to stay loyal
Ive since moved so I won't be able to make the trip up there anymore.

I live in the neighborhood and I thought I would give this place a try--what a mistake. I asked for a very simple style--a classic bob, one that every hairstylist is expected to know how to do. The woman who cut my hair was extremely inexperienced, and one side was actually longer than another. The stylist also completely botched my bangs. I asked if another hairstylist could fix my bangs and the manager refused. I tried repeatedly to speak to the owner and was also rebuffed by various other employees. All in all, the hairstylist's and the management's attitude was one of not caring--they just wanted me out of there. One thing is for sure--I will never set foot in DRAMATICS nyc again.

Dramatics NYC is really a nice hair salon. I have gone here on and off for the last year and my hair really is so much better than ever. I usually stick to my stylist Yuki - excellent and she takes her time to make sure she does a great and thorough cut. However, all the people there are friendly from the welcome desk to the people who was your hair. Their prices are reasonable by New York City standards and it really is a place to visit if you are looking to keep up your hair with a reasonable budget.

I made an appointment several days before the haircut, because all I needed was a trim, and it was cheap ($18). The "stylist" took about 5 minutes to cut my hair, was impatient, and made me feel like I was part of an assembly line or something. Never once did she smile, until I gave her an obligatory tip.

When I went to the desk to pay, I was charged $32, which is completely riduculous considering the quality of the cut and the level of courtesy (or lack thereof) I was presented with. I am never going back.

I went there for the $18 haircut. I was charged $26 because I had an appointment. (What!?) My girlfriend went for the $26 cut and style, but was charged $47 because they blow dried her hair. No products were used on her hair. Apparently a "Cut and Style" means that you leave with your hair dripping wet. The $18 cut doesn't exist since its only for walk-ins which they won't take since they are always "busy". We both hated the cuts we got.

good haircut for the price. the stylist understood what I wanted, and made additional touch-ups when it's done. good atmosphere. I'm only speaking for this one on 3rd ave/83rd st.
