I would take my mom there for a trim when she came to visit because it was the most reasonable place around here. I wouldn't go there myself though. Its just a walk in hair salon and the people who work there seem pushy and nasty. I guess it depends who you get, but in a pinch if you need a cheap trim, why not?

They seem to be clueless and full of themselves. Too bad, the place should be nicer and classy but it is a rats nest. I wouldnt go there, or even be seen there !

phenomenal! finally a place that doesn't cost a fortune to get an awesome cut and blow out! I find myself going there more than necessary because I always leave happy! Great people, great location. The only issue I have is how unfriendly the actual owner is. You can tell the atmosphere changes when she's around (for the worse) and she just gives off an awful vibe to the customers! Other than that, no complaints! Love it!

Its hard to find a salon these days that doesn't cost a fortune to get a trim. This salon however charges reasonable rates for a cut. I went to this salon when I worked in Ridgewood...if I lived closer I would still be going. I have also had my eyebrows waxed here and they do a really nice job. Definitely try them for yourself! You'll be happy.

great expectations has been under new ownership for 2 years. it's amazing the changes and quality cuts they give since those last two reviews. it's completly remodeled and they have a lot of new employees from higher end salons. that do beatiful work. My wife is very happy there, my children also get there haircut there. It is very resonably priced, especialy if you have a big family.

PROS: plenty of parking. open late every night . very profesional atmosphere
CONS: nothing bad to say

Average cuts and average color job. the atmosphere is also average. The pace is busy and I made no psecial bonds with any of the stylists. The good thing is that is is very reasonable and conveniently located in a strip mall off Ridgewood Avenue.

Great Expectations was my haircut destination for years when I was under the impression that my hair would resemble a rat's nest whenever I would leave the salon. The prices for cuts were right when I was in college and as a young . However, the trauma I felt every time I had a haircut in this salon wasn't worth the aggravation. I wouldn't recommend this salon to anyone.

Located in a strip mall off of Maple Avenue, Great Expectations has a steady stream of customers; however, you can walk in and get a stylist if you are in the area.

I went through a bunch of stylists here--although they were experienced, not all felt comfortable dealing with my curly hair. More times than not, I left with frizzy, uncontrollable hair. Once it was so bad that I was crying and the stylist who had just finished using the diffuser said "You know, I don't blame you for crying." I felt like a freak in a circus show.

The notion of "precision hair cutters" has been lost on this place, regardless of its business name. No matter what style I requested or what pictures I brought in for reference, every cut I received was either botched or a mere trim. My hair always looked the same.

The stylists were usually friendly; one was very talkative and was gossiping to another stylist about the mailperson she and I both had in common. It was inappropriate and embarrassing.

The salon offers other hair treatments, such as color and updos. I did get my hair French braided there for two occasions and the braids were attractive. Styling is fine, but the cuts were disasters.

After visiting other salons, I realized that with a skilled stylist, my hair wouldn't be a gigantic frizzy debacle. As a result, I never returned to Great Expectations.

PROS: Simple updos are acceptable
CONS: Horrible haircuts
