their cuts are really good, but see what happened to me during coloring:
1) after color was applied stylist switched his attention to another customer and another girl washed out color from my hair using SHAMPOO! (which is unbelievable)
2)nobody bothered to dry my hair
3) my last cut lasted about 10 minutes
4)they all wash hair with incredibly hot water (are they only persons in town who doesn't know that it is not good for hair?)
5) my friend is also their customer, but she is not happy with her color because it does not cover grays at all

I just had the Keratin Straightening done at Timothy John's Salon, and it is Amazing. I have frizzy curls, not pretty ones, so I blow-dry my hair straight every day with flat iron. And on a humid day like weve had lately, I will spend all that time for nothing. Not anymore! My hair looks beautiful soft and straight even with the humidity! I love it!

Cons: Hello.....None

I just moved next door to Timothy Johns Salon, and thought it looked really cute and busy so I decided to make an appointment for a haircut with Elena. She helped me decide on a great length for me, which wouldnt be too hard to style and that I could also throw into a pony when I go to the gym. My haircut turned out exactly how she told me it would. She is really talented, and nice to talk with too! Then salon is small so you get to see and hear everything which is fun. No complimentary wine though....which would be nice.

Pros: perfect prices, quality styles

Cons: Small space

I have hot curly hair now!! After 24 years of stick straight hair and nights of attempted curls going flat within a half hour, I finally got the perfect ""body wave"" perm I was looking for. Timothy was great - and listened when I said I wanted loose curls that looked natural. I was worried about how it would turn out, but it looks great - my boyfriend can't get over how much he likes it (and I can't get over how little time it takes me to get ready! I am a wash-and-go girl now!)\r
I have also been going to Elena for my haircuts and she always does a great job! Not only does she give me the style I ask for, she makes my hair look its best! Thanks to Timothy John's for making me look MY best!

My fiance made me schedule an appointment here because our wedding is in a week. The receptionist was very helpful and scheduled me with Dawn. He told me she would take good care of me....I said its just a haircut, it doesnt matter that much(dont tell my fiance). Dawn was a lot of fun to talk to, and she gave me more than ""just a haircut."" She changed my view of what a haircut should be. I can never go back to my 20 barber. Now that Ive had a great cut and style, I know that its totally worth a few extra bucks. Oh...my fiance jumped me when I got home!!!!!

I just had my haircut with Timothy....yes, the Timothy of Timothy John's Salon. I didnt know what he would be like, as I have been to Salon Owners before, and it hasnt been the best. Anyway, Timothy was awesome! He met me at the front, took time to discuss haircut options, gave me an honest opinion, and delivered a haircut that was top of the line! Oh....He even did my shampoo, which is unheard of!

I have been to every salon in the theatre district, and Timothy John's is hands-down the best. I am in my late 40's, and my hair makes me feel like Im in my 50's. I know its horrible. I had my haircut by Feliciano a few months ago, and no lie....It is the best haircut I have ever had. He also showed me how to use the Moroccan Oil to improve my dry hair....Its Amazing! He encouraged me to come back in 6 to 8 weeks, which is a lot earlier than usual for me, but because he did such an amazing job, I thought I would trust him. Well its been 8 weeks, and he was right! My hair has never looked better.

I have been going to Elena for the past year. She gives me beautiful blonde highlights that look like they are growing out of my scalp. Its Amazing how natural it looks. I get compliments all the time. She also gives me an amazing haircut every time I see her. I have had it long and short.....it always looks amazing. Go see Elena at Timothy John's.....You wont regret it!

After reading all the great reviews I came to this salon with pictures of the styles i was going for, and had an idea of what i should look like when i left. When i got there, everyone seemed friendly and i sat with the person to do my color. As she did my consultation, she asked if i had colored my hair previously and i responded: ""not in the past year or so"" then she asked if i had any relaxer in my hair, which i then responded; ""no"".These questions were fine as I just so happen to be mixed with Jamaican,Italian and Polish heritage. And my hair is obviously too gorgeous for anyone to think that its natural. When i changed into my smock I came back to have the owner re-ask if i had a relaxer in my hair. When i told him no he proceeded to ask if i was sure. I then said: ""i have never gotten a relaxer in my life"". At which this point, I must have been lying cause he asked for a third time and stated that ""even it was a year or two ago it's still in your hair."" I was completely taken aback and astonished, that a so -called ""professional"" would question a first time client and continue to ask as if i wouldnt know. Although i was quite insaulted i took his questioning as a compliment and continued to get my hair done. The person who did my cut was very sweet and tried her best to be friendly. She started out okay (my friend who has never been professionaly trained can blowdry my hair 3 times better than her). As she finished, my hair was dry and frizzy and i was not satisfied with the blow-dry. When she started my cut, a client of hers came in and she was so focused on the fact he was there. She rushed through my cut (although it took 1 1/2 hrs.) obvioulsy he was a regular and unfortunately had to wait. Instead of finishing the style, she said "" sorry i can't finish the style i would've bumped the back with a flatiron but you could probably do it when you get home- cause you know he's waiting"". At this point, i was infuriated and was astonished that a prosfessional wouldnt have the decency to finish her job especially when i'm a paying customer. No salon i have ever went to has never- not finished, simply because someone was waiting! I was embarrased to walk out of there knowing that I paid 3 times as much at this place than if i were to go to a salon outside of the city. I was totally unsatisfied. And was dissapointed in the customer service and amount of time and money wasted. My cut was bland and not what i wanted and my color was something a friend of mine could of done- free of charge. i called the salon the next day ,and after not getting a response, i went to the salon- a WEEK later and told the owner i wasnt happy he asked what was wrong i told him that the cut was not what i wanted and he began to tell me a whole bunch of BS. He stated that his clientle is mostly of Caucasian descent, (Like white people dont have curly thick hair) and they do not typically have women come in with ""my type of hair"". When questioned what he meant by ""my type of hair"" he stated "" well, ethnic hair"". He continued to go on and on about how doing my type of hair is like a ""whole other field of hair"" and how his equipment is simply not hot enough to striaghten my hair! I left with his reassurance that he or someone else would fix my hair- if i had it blown out before i came! Funny how the owner of a HAIR salon tells me that he as well as his staff are incapable of blow-drying thick/curly hair. I intended on going but i just could not be botherd- with the lack of customer service. I'm just gonna stick to my ""once a week lady"" and pay 1/3 of the price. You know that saying: ""you get what you pay for""? I clearly did not get anything close to what i paid for, and i was embarrased to even tell people how much i truly paid to pretty much look exactly the same only with a touch of color added. If youre thinking of going to Timothy Johns think twice if youre not 100% Caucasian.

i came to this salon becasue of the feedback on citysearch. i was most impressed with the fact that the owner of this salon took the time to address negative feedback. i felt that even if i didn't like the way they did my hair ...that atleast i was coming to a place where the owner actually cared. i have to say after going to two other places (both well reviewed by citysearch) the third time really is the charm.\r
\r
i came in with an appointment to see Dawn. we talked and were on the same page about what was to be done with my razor frayed holes everywhere ..hideous looking hair. \r
\r
she was so skilled and just so great overall. she started working on my hair and somehow managed to make it look better. we both agreed that it needs some more growing out..but atleast it's going to grow out looking sophisticated and not dated. for that a big thank you to Dawn!!!! i can't wait to go back. yeaa!!\r
\r
bottom line....i wish i had found this place before my fine hair was butchered with a razor and chopped to pieces into a 1970's hair style meant for a guy.\r
\r
try this place out. you won't regret it.

I had wanted to check this place out due to all the good reviews and all I can say is that the place lived up to its reputation! As you walk in you immediately feel like you are at home, the staff are friendly and it has has a relaxing happy and comfortable feel unlike may of the larger more pretentious salons. I got my medium length, wavy hair cut by Brandy who did a wonderful job and I'm so happy with how it looks!

This has never happened to me before. But I was on the subway after getting my hair done at Timothy John's by Feliciano. This girl tapped my shoulder and said...I love your cut and color! Where did you get it done? I said I went to Timothy John's and saw Feliciano....Then I whipped out my referral card that Feliciano gave me and told her she should see him. She said that she is a stylist and loved what he did. She said she works in Soho, but would even consider sneaking in to see him! How funny is that. I thought it was the best compliment ever!

I live on the East Side, so when one of my co-workers kept raving about Timothy John's I was hesitant. Mainly because I didnt really want to trek across town, but after seeing her great hair everyday and disliking mine, I made an appointment with Timothy. First, it was super easy to get to. Second the salon is really cute, and homey (is that how you spell it?). And Last, Timothy gave me the best haircut of my life. He is really charming, sincere, and genuine. And he is an amazing stylist. I will continue my trek across town for Timothy John!

Two years ago I came to this salon and loved my cut and color. I didn't go back because I was trying to stay on a hair budget, but two years later I have found that it wasn't worth the unhappy times. \r
\r
I've come back and once again and smiling ear to ear on the work that Dawn did. I have curly hair it is nice to have someone with the same type of hair work on you. \r
\r
You would be silly to go anywhere else!!

Thank you thank you thank you for saving my hair. I recently decided that I was going to go back to my natural color because being a blonde was becoming too expensive. I bought a boxed color at the store that looked like a perfect match to my natural color. Without going on, I turned my blond hair green....What???? It was horrible. I called Timothy Johns, and they squeezed me in with Ashley. The owner Timothy and Ashley talked with me about what I wanted. I said anything but green, and they told me they would do the best they could to help me. They were very upfront about how the results could vary because of what I had done, but they promised me I would look good. \r
I look Great. They gave me the natural light brown I was wanting, with some great blonde highlights to make me feel like i could still have some fun! Plus they told me the maintenance would be easier for me and my wallet! Thank you Ashley and Timothy!

Timothy John's is hidden on 53rd St. I say so, because I have lived in the neighborhood for 4 years, and just happened to walk by and notice the busy and cute salon. I walked in on a whim, and made an appointment with Timothy for the following week. I was really excited, then nervous, then excited, then nervous, but when my day came to see Timothy, I was excited! Let me tell you something, Timothy is so sweet. He listened to what I wanted, and delivered. On top of giving me the best haircut I have ever had in NYC, he made great conversation. He genuinly seemed interested in getting to know me, which was amazing. Thank you Timothy!

I had several cuts there. The place is good, very nice people and good cuts. But I didn't like several things. One of the stylists cut my hair too short - while I told her clearly NO BANGS. it was really awful - I am in sports and I have a lot of problem with hair now, they fall on my face. The most short parts of my hair were as short as 2 inches. Also, they charged me for additional service without telling me that it will cost me. I will find another place to cut hair.

I've been going to Feliciano for almost 2 years now and have never been disappointed. Last night he once again worked his magic on my curls and trimmed them to perfection. This is a great salon and Feliciano rocks!

After reading many reviews for different salons, the negative ones in particular, I reached a sort of enlightenment and decided to post my thoughts. I've been to Timothy John's two or three times. To be fair, I am extremely picky and difficult to please when it comes to my hair - I have stressed out many a stylist with my detailed requests and lines of questioning. I can tell you that they have the patience of saints at this salon. They addressed my concerns, and I know that they did their best to fulfill my expectations, and I appreciate this a lot. I know that I can be a pain. Now, as a seasoned salon junkie, I recommend that you give this salon a try. They do nice work, especially for the prices. Everyone at this salon, from the receptionist, to the stylists, to the owner - they are all very pleasant and made me feel comfortable and welcome. I have come to the conclusion that you really need to try a salon for yourself in order to make the right judgment call. Hair is a very personal (and complicated) matter - and sometimes it takes a lot of experimenting before you find a salon or a particular stylist that is really a right match for you. And although I was not ecstatic after my last visit, after some self-reflection, I realized that your salon outcome is not totally dependent on the staff/stylist. It may also be dependent on how you *communicate* your ideas and desires. And if I had to review myself on how well I communicate, I would give myself a much lower grade than I gave the salon. I really feel that if you communicate your desires more clearly to your stylist, you are more likely to get the outcome you want. Maybe the negative reviews for this salon may be more of a reflection of how the clients communicated their desires to the stylists, rather than how the stylists performed. I intend to go back to Timothy Johns, and keep these ideas in mind when I communicate what I want to the stylist. I bet that I'll have a much better result than I did last time.

It may also be dependent on how you *communicate* your ideas and desires. And if I had to review myself on how well I communicate, I would give myself a much lower grade than I gave the salon. I really feel that if you communicate your desires more clearly to your stylist, you are more likely to get the outcome you want. Maybe the negative reviews for this salon may be more of a reflection of how the clients communicated their desires to the stylists, rather than how the stylists performed. I intend to go back to Timothy Johns, and keep these ideas in mind when I communicate what I want to the stylist. I bet that I'll have a much better result than I did last time.

Pros: Ambience, Friendly Staff & Owner

Cons: N/A

I was a little worried when I was told I would be getting my hair done by the lowest priced stylist, Ashley, at Timothy John's, but I needed to get my hair done before I went home for Christmas. Ashley is excellent! She is really cute, and right off the bus from the Midwest. But she gave me a haircut that rivals any New Yorker. I couldnt believe I walked out of Timothy John's looking as great as I did for only 50.00.

You have to be kidding with how talented Feliciano is. The haircut he gave me last week may be, hands down, the best I have ever had. I saw the reviews here on Citysearch, and decided to give it a go before Thanksgiving. When I went home to visit my family, everyone kept commenting on how fabulous my hair was. They kept saying my NYC hairstyle was great. They went on and on and on... I loved it! Thank you Feliciano for making my return home from the city a huge success!

I recently saw Dawn at Timothy John's, and loved everything about her. I am one of those girls who loves to be a blonde, and I need to get my highlights done often to keep up the look. Well, like many others in the city I just lost my job, but didnt want to lose my look. Dawn was very understanding, and told me that if I put more of my natural color back with blonde pieces, I wouldnt need to come back as often. I couldnt believe she was helping me ,afterall, she wouldnt see me as often. The fact of the matter is that Dawn cared more about helping me acheive a more manageable color, than talking me into the same high maintenance one. I still look like a beautiful blonde, and feel beautiful too! Thank you Dawn for helping a girl out when she was down!

I was a Timothy John's Salon fanatic before my job took me to California for the last 2 years, but I am back, and Timothy John's is everything I remember and more. When I moved, I spent a ton of money at a trendy salon in LA, and the only thing i truly loved was the atmosphere. Timothy John's doesnt serve wine, or coffee...but Who Cares? I can buy my own bottle of wine or cup of coffee. I want to walk out of a salon with beautiful color and a haircut that is even. Timothy delivers every time. If I ever have to move for work again, I will definately fly to NYC for Timothy.

I had the greatest haircut of my life yesterday with Dawn. I brought in a few photos of haicuts that I envied, and Dawn figured out a way to pull the best parts of each photo, and make them work on me. Nobody has ever taken the time to listen and look at what I was dreaming about, talk with me about my hair type, maintenance, and care...then give me the exact haircut we discussed. Dawn was thorough, fun, and amazing. I told her I was going to write a review, because everyone needs to know how talented she is. Dawn works part time, but I will schedule around her...thats how great this haircut is!

You do realize, topdg, that they cannot legally charge your credit card anything just because you missed an appointment. A credit card can only be charged with a signature, and since you didn't give them one, you can contest it with your credit card company. It's only the people who don't contest it who get charged these ""missed appointment"" BS charges. Just contest it, they can't charge you anything without your written confirmation. Trust me, I'm a lawyer. And I've been to this salon, I know how horrid everyone there is. You didn't miss out on anything. They're catty and provide bad service, bad attitudes and don't take any criticism into consideration- they just think it's the client's fault. My hair is still fried from Amy and her shoddy work. You got lucky!!!!!!!!!

I tried Timothy John's Salon on a recommendation of a friend, and it was really wonderful. The salon is quainte and charming, and the staff was really nice. I had a haircut with Elena. She was excellent. She asked a lot of questions, and she delivered exactly what she said she would do for me. Also she introduced me to Morroccan oil. It's amazing.

I recently moved to the Metro building on 53rd street from Downtown. Its a great neighborhood with so many places to eat and hang out. But to my surprise, 53rd Street is home to the most amazing little salon in the city. I walked in on a whim yesterday hoping to be seen by anyone for a haircut. They didint have anyone available, but they took my name and number, and assured me they would call if something opened up. Not two minutes later, they called and said they had a cancellation. Unfortunately I couldnt go right back, but they said they would try again. They called back, and said that they had an opening in the evening with Elena. She was amazing. Easy to talk to, full of great ideas, and a great hairstylist. \r
It has been a while since I was treated so kindly by everyone in one place. Im so glad I moved next door. Thank you!

Timothy John is a Hair God!!!! I have heard of Timothy John and his salon for years, but never tried him, because I enjoyed my 5th ave hairstylist. I really liked my 5th Ave cut, and but my color was never quite right, and I really loved the thought of going to 5th Ave....It felt so.... you know...5th ave. Well...everything fell apart, I lost my job, and couldnt afford my 5th Ave style, and I have job interviews with roots from hell. \r
I called with a few questions for Timothy John's Salon. I was very nervous. But the receptionist was full of great help, and offered a complementary consultation with Timothy ( complimentary consult with the owner?). From the second I met Timothy I was at ease...we discussed options for me, and he elightened me with a change from my normal to something that would bring out my eyes, and would be more realistic for me to maintain, and style on my own. After the consultation, I scheduled an appointment for the following week. He asked me if I trusted him with the new style, and with the color selection. I said....absolutely. \r
He rocked my hair out!!!!! Good Bye 5th Ave! Im staying in Midtown. Not only did he rock out my color and cut, but the price was about half of what I was paying across town. I just sent three of my girlfriends to Timothy after we met for drinks, and they freaked out at how hot I look!\r
Timothy made me feel like I can take NYC on again. Watch out! If you see a really hot confident blonde walking down 8th Ave...Its probably me.

Too bad they don't have a zero number of stars.Avoid this place!!! I made an appointment on Tuesday for the next day. When I booked I was told they would need my credit card to hold the appointment. Fair enough. I had an unavoidable emergency the next morning (a water line broke in my apartment) and called to rebook the appointment. It was then i was told for the first time of their policy to charge me $30.00 because I was not giving them 24 hours notice. How could I? I was calling to not cancel, just change, the appointment. The owner David would not budge. It was my first appointment and it sure will also be my last. My big gripe is that the receptionist never informed me of the cancellation policy until I phoned.

I was really, really lucky to stumble upon timothy john's salon after reading reviews on citysearch and deciding to give them a try. what i found was an incredibly competent staff that i trust completely with my hair. they're detail oriented, very skilled, and really fun to chat with. also, the integrity of the salon can hardly be questioned for stylists' decisions to leave. its my understanding that that is the nature of the trade. i've been with amy for three fabulous cut and colors; now that she's left, im totally confident that any of their stylists will do an equally wonderful job. timothy john's is a bit pricey for me, but it's really worth every penny. my highlights have been expertly applied, and don't require a ton of maintenance which has in effect meant that they've paid for themselves since I don't need to go as often. total strangers have stopped me to ask who does my hair. i recommend timothy john's every time.

Since moving to NYC I have been looking for a pocket friendly salon with a neighborhood feeling. I found that at Timothy John's Salon. The salon was in a perfect neighborhood, only a couple avenues from where I work, so I decided to give it a try. I read the reviews on citysearch and thought it was too good to be true and scheduled an appointment with Feliciano. Feliciano gave me an excellent consultation on my hair, mixed the perfect color (which I have had a problem with at other salons), and gave me a lasting blowout. After styling my hair he gave me tips on how to maintain my hair and which products to choose. I bought shampoo and conditioner suggested by Feliciano (but by no means pushy which is another problem I find at other salons when trying to sell products). I believe I have found a salon I can trust and rely on!

Pros: Small ""homey"" atmosphere, Feliciano's wonderful styling skills!, wonderful customer service, and the list goes on!

.

I started going to Timothy John's last fall when Feliciano was new. I have extremely thick, wavy hair that tends to frizz up and had been cutting my own hair for about 10 years. I typically kept it short because whenever I tried to grow it out I'd get overwhelmed by its bulk. I had also been traumatized by stylists who did not know how to take care of my hair.\r
\r
Feliciano is a wavy-hair genius. Over the last year he has consistently given me cuts that flatter my hair while it's growing out. I have seen him trim, then thin with scissors, then go back and thin again with a razor to make sure he took off enough bulk. My hair has always been well-shaped. He is good at listening to what you're looking for, explaining what's actually possible, and gives great advice. He suggested Moroccan Oil Curl Cream which has been a great product for me.\r
\r
He also does an awesome blow-out and got my hair straighter & smoother than it has ever been in its natural life. He gives helpful suggestions and educates you about the salon's menu without pressuring you or overselling.\r
\r
My second cut initially left me very uncomfortable because it felt too bulky. In retrospect it was only because Feliciano styled it curly (trying to show me a new technique) but it really freaked me out at the time. I called the salon hoping to express my issue so we could avoid it next time. Feliciano immediately invited me back in to readjust. I appreciated his professionalism and ability to listen to my concerns. I have had months of great cuts ever since.\r
\r
Feliciano is a talented, fun, friendly & professional stylist. He's the first stylist who was ever able to understand my hair and earn my trust, and really gave my hair a new chance at life. Highly recommended for the wavy-haired.

I can honestly say that I have never seen so many talented people in one room. I was super early for my appointment last week with Dawn, so I had the opportunity to sit and watch the magic for awhile. Every stylist in the salon was knocking out these rediculously amazing and fantastic styles. One guy was getting his hair cut (very cute) and the stylist turned him from handsome to drop dead hot!!! Then Timothy, the owner was working on a girls color and I couldnt stop watching....I was shocked at how precise yet quick he applied the foils and color. I swear there was great hair in every direction. P.S...I left with an exceptionally perfect cut from Dawn. Timothy John's Salon.....Fantastic!

Ive watched all of the reality hair shows on tv, and Timothy could beat any of those stylists....hands down. I have been to Timothy twice. Both times he has given me a huge makeover. First I wanted to be a blond bomb shell with long layers....I looked amazing. Then I wanted to be a redhead short and sassy....Again Amazing. I cant recommend him enough. He is a lot of fun, totally honest, and a master at what he does. I could ask him to make my hair purple, and I know it would still look fab!

I actuall live overseas, but went into Timothy John's last week for a last-minute cut and colour. Feliciano did a BRILLIANT colour with the prettiest highlights .I have a rather unusual colour -- a copper-gingery red, which can throw some stylists for a loop, but he got it SPOT ON! And a really nice cut too! All the staff there were lovely. Anytime I'm in NYC you can be sure I'll be back!

After years of miss after miss after miss with my hair, I tried Timothy John's Salon. I had my haircut with Elena, and she gave me the best cut and style I have had in the city. I have read the reviews on here over and over, but never wanted to risk a change from my other stylist who was giving me mediocre cuts. So finally after much contemplation and anxiety, I made an appointment. Im so mad at myself for not going sooner. The salon is cute, and clean, and everyone seemed to be in great spirits. My haircut with shampoo, scalp massage, and blow-dry was under 80.00. Totally worth it!!!!

I just had my hair done yesterday here and I've been going for ""a while."" It's the third salon I've been to since I moved back to NY in 2004 and it's the best so far. \r
\r
To counter some of the other reviews: my original stylist left and I started seeing Dawn who has been wonderful and we talk about what I want and we try different things and it either works or doesn't work but she listens to me and some of my ideas just haven't worked so we go back to what did work. But she listens. And I notice the other stylists do as well. \r
\r
I'm GLAD they spent the time letting my color sit and glossing it. and what are they supposed to do while my color is setting? Play cards? I mean, they have to make money too! And yesterday my color sat for almost 40 minutes. If they do that 3 or 4 times a day that is a lot of time to throw away. \r
\r
PLUS I get to watch the other cuts and colors being done and even the junior stylists are so professional and methodical. They get it right and Timothy does oversee their work. I think Feliciano, the youngest stylist, has so much talent. I love watching him work.\r
\r
And they sell product but never force it on you or even try to sell it like most places I've been to. Yesterday was the first time I bought something there because I just really liked the product and the last time she used it, they didn't have it for sale. Even with product, my cut and color is less than most places that do not give as much time and attention.\r
\r
My cut and color takes hours and I know that it's an effort and I'm glad it's made. \r
\r
If you want to spend more money for less attention and come home laden with useless products that someone forced on you then go to another salon!\r
\r
If not, come here for reasonably priced quality cuts and/or colors.

I actually first tried TJ salon a week after paying $125+ for the worse haircut of my life. Elena, who came highly recommended by a friend of mine, was so sweet, she fixed my hair and was 100% professional -- she could have insulted the other salon I had gone to, but she didn't, she just focused on giving me an amazing haircut (for less than $125 too!). Elena has given me great haircuts and highlights ever since (2 years). I have even recommended this place to a few friends, and they've had great results.\r

I've always found the rest of the salon very clean and the rest of the staff very nice. It's a fairly small space and I generally spend 2+ hours there on a Saturday when I'm getting a cut and highlights so I think I get a pretty good perspective on the salon. I've never noticed anyone being anything but professional and friendly. I always feel welcome here

I actually first tried TJ salon a week after paying $125+ for the worse haircut of my life. Elena, who came highly recommended by a friend of mine, was so sweet, she fixed my hair and was 100% professional -- she could have insulted the other salon I had gone to, but she didn't, she just focused on giving me an amazing haircut (for less than $125 too!). Elena has given me great haircuts and highlights ever since (2 years). I have even recommended this place to a few friends, and they've had great results.\r

Pros: Haircuts, Highlights, Elena, friendly staff, wide variety of products offered

I am a very simple girl. I dont like to spend a lot of time getting ready, doing my hair, make-up, worrying about my wardrobe, i simply work too hard in a tiny little office where I hardly see anyone, so it doesnt really matter. I went to Timothy John's because of the good reviews here, and because the price seemed reasonable. Feliciano did my hair, and for the first time in my life, I felt glamorous. He gave me a beautiful haircut, but he also took the time to explain a few products, how to use them, and how to style my hair at home. All simple techniques that make my simple self look amazing with not a lot of effort. Thank you Feliciano for taking the time to really help this simple girl.

Pros: Everything was great

I have been a client of Timothy Johns Salon for about 4 years now. I am a person who loves changing my hair a lot!!! Timothy John's staff has always been great to me, they have chopped my locks off, giving me sassy cuts to even elegant more feminine looks. I have had my hair colored from black, red, deep purple, and different shades of brown, to now blonde (which I love). Every request and change I have wanted, they have accommodated and made it look fierce! I don't stick to one stylist, I tend to float around the salon to whatever stylist is available to apply my color or finish up my cut. I trust everyone that works there knowing that they are all trained and experienced with all types of hair, color, and precision styles. Over the past four years I have not only noticed my hair change but so have the stylist. I have seen many come, go, and come back again. The staff currently there I would say is the best, and the strongest I have ever seen it. They are like a little family. Which is great to see in a work place (wish my work atmosphere was like that). Before coming to TJ's, my locks were fried and broken, and even after the constant changes I demand from them, Timothy Johns Salon has somehow made my hair healthy again (recommending different products and treatments to help sustain healthy/shiny hair). Thanks guys! I get so many compliments all the time!!! Last time I was in we even chatted about putting in extensions. Timothy recommended Feliciano (whom has been cutting my hair over the past year), and I have no doubt in my mind that its going to turn out fabulous! I look forward to going into that salon, and am always greeted with a smile. Thanks Timothy John and your staff for being the best! See you soon for those extensions. :)

I've been seeing Elena for my hilights color and this last time was the best it's been. She also has a very comforting and calm presence. I am happy to recommend her.\r
I am sad to see the owner speaking poorly his former staff. It might not be any of my business, but I've been attending this salon for some time and I don't ever recall anyone being negative. I think it's bad business to speak so poorly of young people who are trying to make a living and who worked hard to make money for your business. As a concerned client I would ask the owner to be careful about his own negative attitude. \r
Otherwise, I think Elena is the best part of the salon and I hope you treat her well.

After reading like all 160reviews or so, I decided to try Timothy John's Salon. I saw Elena for color and Dawn for my haircut. I love it. Calm atmosphere, music was fun...80's I think, and genuine nice people. Ill be back!

I recently moved to NY from LA and was really trying to find a great salon...and I couldn't resist the amazing reviews. I was not disappointed. My haircut is perfect! Thank you so much. I plan on making many more visits to the Salon.

Pros: service and prices

Cons: stylist ran late

I checked out city search to find a new salon after my favorite stylist left Timothy John's. I've continued going still because they have my color formula but the quality just isn't the same. I noticed some people asking where the stylists have gone. I hope this doesn't receive a nasty response from the owners but if anyone knows please post it.

I am a long time client of Timothy John's Salon. I was one of the first people through the door nearly eight years ago, and have been a loyal client since. I have watched Timothy bust his tail to make his place successful, filled with amazing stylists, amazing staff, and wonderful clients. I just read the review about turnover, and can tell you that Timothy John's is better off without most of the stylists that are gone. I visit the salon every month and have had my hair touched by nearly every stylist in his salon. I am a regular, recieving hugs and kisses from everyone, except for a few( thank god they are gone)! When one of them goes, it is normally the best thing for the salon. My last two visits have been some of the best in years. The mood is light and the energy is clean of any negativity. I trust Timothy and his judgement of character, and when a stylist leaves, it has been because they were most likely unable to keep up to the high standards that has made his salon a success. I always look forward to my time at the salon, especially now that some of the negative riff raff have gone. Dont listen to the garbage talk most likley posted by angry ex-employees. Visit Timothy John's, and you will be greeted with a smile, treated like a real person, and leave looking wonderful and feeling like you have a lovely extended family.

Looking for a great stylist in New York is hard to find, but I have found him! I got my haircut from Feliciano and he is awesome. At first they said he was a junior stylist and I was skeptical. Not anymore! The staff is great and the salon is so cute and intimate. I asked for something chic but won't make me look like I'm trying too hard or make me look older. He listened closely to what I wanted with my hair and we worked out a good compromise. He explained what he was going to do and made sure I was comfortable. Not only he gave me the best haircut I've ever had but he showed me different ways how to style it at home. Everyone is commenting on my hair! Thank you Timothy Johns for having Feliciano and I will be back!
