To say that I am extremely particular about my color is the understatement of the century. Loren blessed my color about 5 years ago and I've never looked back. Passing strangers literally grab me by the arm to ask who does my highlights. I have sent every friend I have to her and now we are all Loren junkies! I haven't lived in NY for over 4 years now and I still drive over 3 hours from Maryland to get my fix of Loren's gift. My natural color is brunette, but I like to live my life as a beachy blonde. My highlights are tasteful, classy, and bombshell gorgeous! Loren never compromises the health of my hair in the process either. I have had too many horrible memories of colorists deep frying my hair; not to mention, everytime I went for a touch up, I just kept getting lighter and lighter. They did not want to take the time and meticulous effort needed to preserve my color without over processing.
In addition, with Loren, I can let my roots go for months and never have a blunt line of root growth. They grow out so naturally and flawlessy, its rather incredible. Loren is professional, a pleasure to be around, and second to NONE in her trade. I don't care what anyone says, your hair is your best accessory and it can make or break you; don't ever comprimise that: Loren Basis, period.

I absolutely adore Loft 26! It's such a beautiful space, the staff is super talented and friendly, and my hair has never looked better. I'm super picky when it comes to hair salons and have tried several in the City. It's hard to find a place that checks all the boxes. Some places are great for cuts, others for color, others for style...lots of places have stressful atmospheres or lots of staff turnover...but Loft 26 is the total package. It's a one stop shop for all your beauty needs! I see Stacey and Loren and both ladies are beyond talented. In addition, they are experts when it comes to reading their clients and catering to their individual needs. For example, I'm from the South and I love big, curly hair and Stacey seriously spends at least 30 minutes after a cut setting my hair in rollers or curling it with a curling iron and shaping it to perfection. You get the sense that they truly care about their clients as friends, not just customers. Every time I go I leave feeling pampered, gorgeous and perfectly happy. If you're looking for a new salon (or thinking about cheating on your current stylist) look no further than Loft 26!!!

Frizzy curls?! Yup, got'em! I used the blow drier, flat iron, and tons of straightening balm each and every time I did my hair. The result was split ends that went to the root, and hair that just stopped growing. I booked an appointment with John thinking it was just going to be my once a year thing, on the contrary! John explained to me exactly what I was doing wrong, and walked me through the correct maintenance of my hair down to the products I should be using. I've had two Keratin Coppola treatments with him, a Phyto Hair Treatment, and two haircuts in less than a year. He's helped me to appreciate and LOVE my hair, and the best part is that the frizz is gone and it's growing again. My hair's NEVER looked this good! Thanks, John!

I have curly and kind of frizzy hair. I used to get lifebooker, groupon, and gilt city deals and go to different places to cut, condition, and blow-dry my hair. I found Loft 26 through Lifebooker. Since then I go to cut my hair only there.
John is great! My curls never looked more sophisticated. I never liked to blow-dry my hair. Most of the salons I have been to, use too much heat. I was always worried about the damage. John gives me the most gentle blow- dry I have ever experienced, and he never rushes it. + their products are amazing.
I am very happy I found that place!

Loft 26 is true to its name. The salon is in a beautiful airy loft space that, even on Saturdays when it's really busy, still feels very spacious. I've been going to the salon for a few years now and have always found the staff friendly and professional. Also, this may seem like a minor detail but the hair washing sinks are amazing. They are designed to completely support your head so you don't strain your neck during the wash.

I followed my stylist Noelle here from her previous salon. Noelle was recommended to me by a friend as a great stylist for curly hair. I haven't been disappointed! About a year ago I was ready for a change and Noelle suggested a short style. She took my lifestyle into consideration (I wanted something quick and low maintenance) and gave me a cut that looks great with very little effort on my part. She's the first stylist I've had who I felt took not only my hair but my personality into consideration when cutting my hair.

I've been going to Noelle for several years and followed her here from another salon, and can't say enough about her. Amazing skills, always gives me exactly what I want, and my hair is curly and probably not the easiest to cut. She is the only person I've ever been to who consistently gives me great cuts. The salon is beautiful too, very relaxing, the sink chairs are the best!

Jon Gerard of Loft 26, has been styling my hair for over 15 years. I have had every cut and color imaginable -- always looking for that edge and a fresh look. The reason Jon has remained my "go-to" guy is that he gets me. He is able to interpret my wishes into signature looks for my personality. I trust him without hesitation and usually leave the final outcome completely to his judgement. Of course, it certainly helps that he is TALENTED, professional, warm and open to new ideas and possibilities. So check him out at Loft 26. You won't be sorry.

I LOVE my hair!!!! I can't stop looking in the mirror, I am thrilled and excited, I cannot say enough......I will be back. Thanks Julie, you're the best!!!!

Bought the Groupon deal for the keratin treatment. Was very happy with it. Have gone to some other salons since for keratins, but none were worth it. I will be returning to Loft 26 exclusively from now on. They are great!

I made an appointment for this past MONDAY 6/6/11 when I couldn't originally get a desired one for any of summer hair months I desired I went to the next year. I saw an attempt to contact me two weeks ago, but no message. Monday came I called before leaving for my scheduled appointment and there was a message machine on as they were closed!!!!! I called again as I thought I heard no Monday scheduling in their message, they changed their days of operation after selling 1000 groupons excluding Mondays since last year, I left a second message indicating just that. I was called back shorly thereafter stunned and was told they were doing something to the store and needed to ventilate, still 'not' owning the change of operation days.

I not given any accommodation what so ever!!!! I am not sure who she was, but I made plans and that included time for Coppola Kerratin process then two weeks later color and then and grand affair of travel plans- Plans to laugh I see. I tried to get a re scheduled appointment for anytime for the next four days as I was the one inconvenienced, all reasonable requests especially waiting for almost a year for this timely event...Her attempt was to give me an appointment on a Sunday weeks from now..or on a day where the staff would be fill ins for appointments... never to do a Coppola Keratin treatment on your hair!
She claimed that she would try and rearrange some schedules of others to accommodate me, SHE NEVER CALLED ME BACK AT ALL!
That woman was awful to me, I WASTED MY VALUED TIME, NOT EVEN A RETURN PHONE CALL!!! I wrote to them from their website and also no response. This is abhorent for a business to do and I am FURIOUS...! These are services I 'PAID' for already!
I would NOT trust people who lack respect and care nothing for someone they have essentially harmed. I have never been treated so poorly. I am stunned and screwed... for Services I already paid for, and appointment I already scheduled and only couldn't imagine having to alter a scheduled appointment so such a degree. I would think twice or even a bit more before making an appointment here. Everything I have read regarding the owner Stacey Weinstein is not what this experience has shown me...

I had my first cut and keratin coppola treatment with John at Loft 26 days before my wedding and it made my hair so smooth and beautiful I barely had to style it on the big day! John is a great stylist who really listens to what you want and gives you a cut that people will notice. I asked for long layers which is shockingly easy for some people to mess up and his cut was perfect and I barely have to do anything to make it look good on a normal day. I just scheduled my next Keratin treatment and can't wait to get my hair frizz free for the summer. I would definitely recommend John and Loft 26 if you're looking for a new stylist and salon.

After many failed horrible haircuts, John Gerard Griffith finally brought my hair back to life. I have very long fine hair and a lot of stylists try to over style my hair, making it difficult to handle on my own. John not only made me feel so comfortable but gave me the best hair cut I have had in years. Save yourself all of the wasted tears and come to John, I cannot recommend him enough.

I started going to Loft 26 over a year and a half ago and they are quite the talented crew! John and Stacey are not only technically skilled, but they will collaborate with you for your cut EVERY visit to make sure you leave happy. It's easy for a stylist to fall into a pattern with clients and inherently cut your hair the same way over and over again. A true artist will probe the client to see how they felt AFTER their last cut. In a sense they are taking a step back before moving forward.

As for color, Loren really gave me a different perspective on what I could do with my hair. For years whenever I played around with coloring my hair, my colorists always insisted I go lighter (aka either working blonde into my hair, or going platinum all together) because of my fair complexion. Upon explaining that to Loren, and my growing curiosity to go darker, we went for it and she did a fantastic job! The resulting color wasn't quite black, but still darker and richer then a dark brown. True, I have VERY white skin (especially in winter), but I also have light eyes and the color complimented both of those traits better then any color I've had before.

If you've got the budget, you'd be dumb not to become a Loft 26 client!

i was referred to this salon from my stylist in san francisco, and i'm very fortunate i was !

i was in serious need of a haircut, and john gerard griffith came to my rescue with flying colors !

i went in with an idea for my hair, and a photo from a fashion magazine. i had a foundation, and from there john immediately envisioned and conceptualized the look to suite my personality, expression and facial structure.

now everyone notices & talks to me in the new york nightlife, and my friends think i'm better looking than that lame chanel supermodel from the photo i brought into the salon. where do i sign up for an agency ? i'm ready to conquer the world !

I have never been truly happy with my hair color experiences and I have had difficulty in find ing a colorist that can actually "execute" their vision for coloring my hair. I have sat in many chairs and have been disappointed, maybe I am too picky.....thank goodness, that is no longer the case. I heard about Shane Thomas thru an business acquaintance who told me of her experience with Shane and said "he's worth every penny and more"....boy was she right! I was skeptical, at first but Shane totally hit the mark! I am so happy with the results and have finally found someone who "knows" how to make me look like a million bucks.....and he's so cute!

I got my hair colored by Shane last week and hands down he's the best. I knew that going to loft 26 meant I might get good color, I didn't realize I was going to get the coolest color ever. He has a way of making it look natural yet making it look like you have good color. He was quick, it was easy and I get compliments everywhere I go. Even when I went to another salon to get my hair cut they all commented on my excellent color. As an added bonus, he's also adorable, very professional, easy to talk to, the kind of colorist that makes you excited to see him at your next appointment. I am officially a devout Shane follower!!!!!!

Just move to the city from LA so you know that my hair is one of my priorities. A friend from work told me about Shane (her color was always great). The place is so nice, everybody very friendly. When i sat at Shane's i felt good right away, very easy going, the color looks amazing (much better than my LA color, but plz dont tell my old hairstylist). I also enjoyed a nice glass of wine n an amazing head massage.

Shane Thomas is by far the best colorist I've ever known. I've been a client of his for about 7 years now. I would never trust my hair in anyone's hands but his. Every time I leave an appointment with him I look and feel amazing. He always knows exactly what to do that works best for my personal look and style. I would recommend that anyone looking for the best hair experience to make sure you end up in his chair as soon as you can!

I, like many of shane thomas's fashion industry clients, am devoted, no dependent on him. He does hair for a lot of the women in my office and my industry. I met him at fashion week a few years ago and have been going to him since. And I can get luxury, high fashion concept color (he specializes in balayage) from him at what I think is still a really reasonable price.
It's begrudgingly that I share this new york secret. Sigh, the cute ones are always gay. :)

Shane is amazing....he does unbelievable majic with color. I live in CA and he did my hair when he was in San Francisco. I now travel to New York for business and always have him do my color when I am there. No one has ever been able to match his ability and eye for color...he is AMAZING! Plus he has a great personality and always makes me laugh! It's a wonderful salon and I always enjoy my time there.

After a traumatizing experience and having my hair destroyed, Shane did an AMAZING color correction. My hair has never looked better. He took me from a dirty red to a beautiful blonde. I can??t believe he was able to do that. He is ridiculously skilled!!

I go to Loren for my color and it always comes out a rich chocolate brown with lots of shine.Stacey Cuts my hair and it is always on point and she always has recomendations whenever im wanting something a little different. Stacey also does something fun with a curling iron and/or flat iron. I always leave feeling gorgeous and knowing that Stacey and Loren do Bethenny Frankel's hair secretely makes me happy! Thank you ladies of Loft 26.

Shane Thomas is a genius when it comes to color. I constantly am getting compliments on my hair and its all thanks to him! He not only does great color, he also is a pleasure to visit. His stories keep you entertained, and keeping you happy is always his number one priority. When you leave-you truly feel glamorous.

Everyone has to see him! He will change your life :)

I've lived in Manhattan for a dozen years...tried all the "top" salons, but never have I been happier with my look or felt more at home than at Loft 26.

Loren, the head colorist, has TRANSFORMED my mixed bag of blonde color into glowing, natural, blonde highlights that suit my skin tone perfectly. She's created such a magic shade for me that my skin looks good, even without make-up! I go to Stacey, the owner, for my cut and style. Stacey is amazing, a true expert at her craft. She creates the perfect modern, fresh and stunning look that makes you feel gorgeous. Trust me...you will walk out of Loft 26 feeling like you're ready for the cover of a magazine!

I have only been to a salon maybe three times in my life and that was back in the mid 80's. I walked into Loft 26 and found the friendly atmosphere and kind faces to be welcoming. Stacey Weinstein, the owner, was the stylist to cut my hair, she endured, my hair is extremely thick, she did a superb job, blowing, I have never seen someone do that faster, and styling, I have absolute admiration for her skills. I can honestly say I want no one else in my hair after Stacey. The wonderful family type atmosphere at Loft 26 leaves you feeling that you are a part of their family. Loft 26, Thank You?

I finally found someone who can bring my natural curls in a cut that I just towel dry. No involved products or hair dryer! John Gerard Griffin at Loft 26. He's also very nice and funny. Lauren does a great job with my color, too.

I purchased a Coppola Keratin complex treatment at Loft 26 through Group On. I waited a while to schedule my appointment and they were able to fit me right in. I was received by a very welcoming staff and had a wonderful experience. John Girard did my treatment and took quite a bit of time to provide all the information I needed and answer any questions I had. He was friendly and upbeat the whole time, and did a fabulous job on my hair. After not washing my straightened hair for three days as instructed, I am thrilled with the results. Almost no frizz with just a little wave - exactly what I was going for. No more 45 minutes blow drying and straightening my hair. I highly recommend John Girard at Loft 26.

loft 26 is a great space. Light and airy. professional yet relaxed.

I have tied a lot of different hairstylists over the years some good, others excellent but John is outstanding. I really look forward to having my hair cut by him because he not only makes me look good I feel good too. He is really great at what he does and has a really lovely manner as well.

I can always count on John Gerard to really listen to what want to do with my hair and give me a beautiful new look that is easy for me to take care of. Even when he's challenged me to push the boundaries my comfort zone as a tried and true long hair gal, I have been really happy with every style he's given me.

My friend Ted is a regular at this fashionable and snazzy salon. He finally got me to give it a go and try his stylist for a cut. It was terrific. John Gerard gave me a great cut and I'll be referring him to my other friends. Then again I'll just let my hair do the talking. Give it a go!

My curly hair can be challenging, to say the least. In the past I have tried the best of the best in NYC, but always ended up disappointed, as I always ended up with a "hair cut", but not a "hair style". Then I met Noelle. Her cuts are cool and hip without being a slave to hair fashion trends, always explaining and advising the best cuts and hair care remedies for me personally. Over the years, I have referred to her many friends with different "hair issues" and they have always been very pleased and I couldn't be happier with the service I receive from Noelle and the whole staff at Loft 26.

The Best Keratin ever...need I say more, yes I will.
Kayleen also does the phyto hair treatments, I had a problem with my dry scalp she recommended a treatment and products and it worked wonders for my scalp, now I can wear black without the worry of looking like I sand storm.

I had my keratin done by Kayleen in the summer for the first time and I loved it so much I went back this week and had it done for the winter,I have lots of hair and it takes me forever to blowdry, the keratin helps cut my blow dry time by 20 mins.
The space is fab and so is the staff everyone is freindly and funny. I am now a client forever..love my girl Kay,she took the time to listen to my needs.

I became a Loft 26 client through its sister company Once Upon a Bride - Stacey Weinstein the owner did my wedding hair and it was amazing. John Gerard Griffith is now my regular stylist for cuts and is fantastic. I thought I needed to chop the whole mess off and he helped me keep my length but get it looking healthier and made great product recommendations. Loren is my colorist and fantastic. I'm not one of their celeb clients but I feel just like one - they all remember me when I come in and say hello and it's just a great experience.

This is the first review I ever write. And it is such a pleasure to write it. I especially would vote for John Griffith. I have lived in four countries and he is, by far, the best.
He knows exactly what you need, he is honest, down to earth, welcoming and most of all an artist. His work is consistent, he never fails.
Indeed, don't walk run.

I never write reviews but Loft 26 deserves one. I stopped by last week for the third time since being introduced by a close friend and received another fantastic haircut by John.

Trust me -John will not only give you a fantastic cut but he'll keep you engaged with his warm personality and sense of humor.

John Gerard is positively the best hairdresser I know. He is a miracle worker. Took the mop on my head and turned it into a head turner. He's also very friendly and is a great listener. Thank you again John Gerard.
