When I was 13 years old my mom treated me to a haircut by Mark Garrison and I have been going back ever since. Sanae cuts my hair now. She is wonderful and precise. When I get a few highlights Joseph puts them in. He has the ability to put in just the right amount and the correct shade, making my highlights look extremely natural. Getting my hair cut at Mark Garrison's has become a tradition for my mom and I and we always look forward to it!

.

A dozen years ago I stopped a women on the street in Connecticut to tell her that her hair was great and to ask her where she had it done? Since then I have been having my hair cut by Mark and colored by Joseph. Sitting in one of his chairs waiting for your turn is the stuff documentaries are made of. As he approaches each client he brings vision, skill and a unique ability to bring out the best look for the individual. As he cuts, he checks your face in the mirror and when he is done, it is perfection. He is so good, you can close your eyes.

Ive been going to Mark Garrison for years for my color, I couldn't afford going to my colorist any longer and he recommended i see Johnny. He was amazing. He did my color wonderfully and took his time. I am so happy I didn't have to leave the salon and my color looks amazing still! If you are looking for great color at a reasonable price see Johnny. It was a wonderful experience, and i LOVE my hair!

Pros: great long lasting color

.

everytime I get my highlights done with Sam, there is never, ever a problem. I find many colorists have issues doing blonds because apparently its difficult to get the right shade each and every time. Sam seems to know exactly what shade works best whether it be against skin tone or change of season. it's so refreshing to know that i will never, ever be disappointed when Sam is doing my color. He puts the right amount of highlights in the right place. I am so fortunate to have found him.

I've been going to Mark Garrison for a couple of years now after the salon was recommended to me by a co-worker who has great hair (I asked her where she gets her hair done).

I'm amazed at how happy I am every time I leave there. Sam is my colorist and he's extraordinary. I go to him regularly for a single process and every few months I get highlights. Each time I see him he evaluates my color, asks me what I'd like to have done, and somehow manages to exceed my expectations each time with a subtle yet magical change. And his assistant Cheryl is great to talk with (one of the funniest people I know) and she offers great advice on hair style as well.

To top it all off, Redd has been cutting my hair there since I started going and I am always complimented on her cuts. She always listens to what I want to have done, and she'll excute it with flair.

Sam & Redd are a great one-two punch, but all the staff there are friendly, professional and talented. If you haven't been there yet, what are you waiting for??

Pros: Precision cut & color, "no attitude" upscale salon

Redd does an unbelievable job with my Brazalian keratin treatment. It came out pin straight with zero frizz and looks fabulous!! She pays exceptional attention to detail and did not leave one hair out of place. I love the fact that my blow drys will now take half the amount of time! What a difference in my life now :) I will be back!!

Pros: Lasts For Months - Great Service

It takes me a full day to come and go from upstate NY to get my hair cut by Mark, as well as colored by his staff. I have been making this haul for a number of years, because there is no second best once you've experienced Mark Garrison. Mark is incomparable in his attention to detail, and his ability to style very different looking people to their own individual look and best.. It's really quite a remarkable show just to watch Mark as he transforms people of various backgrounds and looks, with all kinds of hair. He has a vision of where he's going with each unique cut, and the result is so natural-looking, while highly finished and professional.

Although this salon is a bit out of my league financially, and way too far from upstate NY where I live, it's a always a privilege to have Mark work on my hair.
Mark is truly an artist, and as we refer to him affectionately in our family, Mr. Scissorhands.

I went to Mark Garrison Salon for the first time. I was lucky to have Senior Hair Colorist Edita Roberston-she is the best hair colorist I ever had! After I got my hair done my Edita. I did not have to wait for people to tell me how great I looked.My highlights came out so good & perfect-they really stood out and were subtle at the same time-very classy.
I was amazed with how fast she was with foiling-I have VERY LONG hair, and it was in a few minutes she had my whole head! I loved her because she was very direct, honest & personal and did NOT PUSH anything on me, which I hate. I asked her to trim my bangs and she did! I liked and appreciated the I was NOT pushed to the side or had a rush job due to the fact that equal amount of attention-and she was very busy-I had appointment week of Thanksgiving.
I could tell by the way she worked and talked to me that she was genuinely interested in making my appearance as good as it can be.
I was surprised on how friendly the staff was despite the upscale salon.

Pros: always pleased

I went to Mark Garrison Salon - and had the misfortune of having Maria Palazzo cut my hair - well, the first time more time was spent on my hair and I was satisfied. The second time, she barely took her time, went scissor happy--and over layered my hair...clearly, she didn't care about the finished look nor took pride in her work. With what they charge, a client should not be rushed. I had to go somewhere else to fix what Maria had done--and she is supposedly a senior stylist?! Based on what standard?! One star is too much if you want my honest opinion. Anyone knows that if you have fine hair - you DO NOT over texturize or creat too many layers - it thins it out!! What a rip off and waste of time. I went elsewhere and they cleaned it up nicely. Save your money.

I visited Mark Garrison Salon for a haircut with Mark a few months ago and was completely blown away. (no pun intended!) Mark is what they call a real master stylist. He cuts with intense precision and enormous detail and truly gave me the BEST haircut of my life! I have long curly hair and Mark added long layers in just the right places which gave an actual shape to my mane of curls for the first time. And even though it was pricey for me, he gave me such a fabulous cut that after 3 months, I still don??t even need a trim. But I did just go back to the salon for a color appointment with Sam. After studying my features and coloring, he took my over processed, brassy August hair to the most amazing shade of copper. It??s so beautiful and so natural that it really looks like I was born with this color. I feel so fortunate to have found this dream team. In addition to loving everything about Mark and Sam, the salon itself is so lovely. Everything from booking my appointment to the greeting at the door to the great people who assist, was handled with true professionalism and a smile. The salon has absolutely none of the pretentiousness that most Upper East Salons have.

My friend reccommeded I go to Mark Garrison for my next haircut. Mark cut my long, straight boring hair into a hip and easy to manage style. Everytime I pass a mirror I do a double take and have received so many compliments over the last few days I will never get my haircut anywhere else! Mark took into consideration my low maintenance lifestyle but was still able to give me a fashionable cut that literally just falls into place when I wake up in the morning. Ive never had bangs before but Mark knew that they would flatter my face shape and bring out my eyes. And he was more than right! You can trust you are in good hands when you are in Mark??s chair, he will give you the best cut and style that works for you. The haircut is worth every penny and then some. Not to mention he is a sweet guy and is easy on the eyes!!

I've been to many salons in my life, but none have exceeded my expectations quite like the Mark Garrison Salon. Everything from scheduling my appointment to check in to my services were handled with the utmost professionalism. My haircut with Mark was top-notch. He's a master cutter whose precision and attention to detail translated into the best haircut I've ever had in my life. I'm literally blown away (no pun intended). Sam did my color and with the eye of an artist, achieved the most beautiful, natural-looking coppery shade I've ever seen. The space itself is clean and simple without any of the stuffiness that goes along with an upper east side salon. The staff was friendly and all seemed happy to be there. On top of that, my hair has never looked better!

NOTE-It looks to me as if some of the "Excellent"
reviews of the salon are more like ads rather than reviews. I would guess that they were written by someone who works for the salon
Read them carefully and see if you do not agree.

I had my hair cut by Mark Garrison 3 weeks ago -I was hoping that a bad cut would start to improve after a few weeks- unfortunately it hasn't. My right ear sticks out through my hair - a problem I never had before this cut.
I also have a short chin which Mark emphasized by sloping my hair away from my chin.

When I told Mark I was not pleased with the cut he actually yelled at me and told me I had personal issues. Huh??
I would have thought a professional stylist might actually attempt to fix the cut .

Finally, Mark multitasks when cutting hair- he was cutting other people's hair as he was doing mine.
For $350 I would hope to get individual attention.

On the other hand, Patricia, the colorist ,does an excellent job

Note- I have a sneaking suspicion that some of the
"glowing" reviews of the salon on this site were probably written by Mark himself or someone on his staff. They almost seem like advertisements for the salon.

I've been writing about hair and beauty for many years and have been to some of the best salons/stylists in the city. I have very thick, wavy hair and no one could ever make it look right--it was always bulky, frizzy and unflattering. Mark was recommended to me by a friend and after a short consultation, he put me completely at ease so I gave him carte blanche to do whatever he wanted, the only stipulation being that I didn't want it too short. The result was amazing--my jaw-length cut had lift, fullness and beautiful, frizz-free curl. I have never received so many compliments and I'm in the hair biz! I also call it the cut that keeps on giving because it lasts a full six weeks without losing its shape. Mark is truly a genius & I can't imagine ever going to anyone else.

i was recommended by a friend to see Gianni a jr colorist at Mark Garison Salon, i was hesitant at first because of the "jr" in his title, but he is amazing, i thought my color was nice before i went to see Gianni, but after a few hours of highlights and color my hair looks amazing, i never thought my hair could look so good and natural! If you are looking for great color with someone who takes his time and listens to what you want...see Gianni!

Although $350 may seem like a lot to some for a haircut, it is well worth it! Mark knew exactly what I was looking for and listenedd to what I had to say. He also gave me some great tips and products for stying my wavy hair on a regular basis which have worked amazingly well at home when I style it. I have never written a review on here before, but and am so happy with my results that I wanted to help others in their quest for a gorgeous cut. Once you invest the $ in a haircut/stylist of this caliber you will understand and see what a huge difference it makes! His assistant Bri was very nice and did a great blowout w a lot of body. The front desk people had a bit of an attitude problem, that would be the only negative coment I could say about my experience at the salon. I am looking forward to my next cut with Mark!

A friend of mine recommended Mark Garrison Salon to me a few months ago. I called for an appointment and asked the receptionist to recommend a stylist for a cut and color. I got my color done by Johnny...I was comfortable from the start! He was polite and funny and really listened to what I wanted. After my color I got my hair styled by Maria. She was friendly and professional. During our consultation, we worked together to find the cut that would look best for my face and style. Throughout the process I always felt comfortable to add my opinion and I ended up with a great cut and color! I am so happy that I was referred to Mark Garrison and hope to see Maria and Johnny everytime I go!

I have been going to Mark garrison himself for years. Sadly his prices went up thru the years, So I stopped going to the salon. After a couple bad cuts I went back to the salon and asked mark for his help. His cut as always was AWESOME! He assured me that other stylists in the salon would take care of me at 1/2 his price, He said "Maria will take better care of you than me and give you a better blowout TOO!" Wow is he right. Maria is a doll, and cuts just like mark. I love the both of them and the way they get along. The whole staff laughs and teases eachother, just making you feel welcome and at home.

I have jumped from salon to salon since I moved to new york, never being wowed, until I tried mark garrison salon. I was recomended to MARIA from a co worker, I wasnt convinced that any hair cut was worth $95. Boy was I wrong. Maria was kind, friendly and cared about how I cared for my hair. She had great suggestions and wasnt pushy, And The BEST PART is my hair looks great when I do it myself!!!!

I shouldn't share my secret but I had tried so many place in NYC for highlights and Marc Garrison is truly the best. And my colorist is Joesph and he is just so incredible. Everytime I leave there I am just so happy with it and it's not a fortune either!!!

I had my hair cut by Redd, and it was by far the best cut I have ever had. I am finally in need of another cut, six months later. My friends noticed it as well. I had been going to Bumble and Bumble for years, but the cut I got from Redd made me a new customer. I found out about the salon by asking a woman whose hair I loved where she got her cut and who did it. I'm very picky about this stuff, and I was thrilled. I even called a week later to tell them. I got exactly what I asked for, only better.

I recently had a terrific experience at Mark Garrison Salon. I had sugned up for the color class on Wednesday night and it was terrific. I had a great experience. Each of the students asked what I was looking for and the instructor decided on Horace. He was terrific. The experience was wonderful including the great scalp massage during the wash. The color hightlights came out natural and wonderful. I loved every minute! Thanks for a great all around time!

My first time at Mark Garrison was a blast! I went in for single process color. My hair had been left unattended for a couple months, so my roots had grown out... Patricia succeeded in giving me a brilliant new hue, even tone, and unbelievable shine. My hair hasn't felt this healthy or looked this good in a long time. The complimentary blowout with Crystal was one of the best I have ever gotten, surviving even the dreadful rainy weather outside. All the staff was incredibly friendly in a very relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended.

I have been going to Mark Garrison for years, and when I moved in February,-- for convenience I tried another salon. In short, the salon had ruined the color of my hair.

I immediately called Patricia at Mark Garrison and explained what I had done. Patrica was amazing, she fit me in right away, explained what had been damaged and began the color correction process --she even added a fabulous treatment to help rebuild the texture of my hair.

There are times in life where convenience seems the more practical choice- but when it comes to your hair- it's simply not! I appreciate and enjoy the talented professionals at Mark Garrision - and Patrica is definitely one of their best colorist!

Thanks again Patricia--

This was my first time at the Mark Garrison salon- it was a wonderful experience. The salon is upscale
and appealing; the staff is friendly and accomodating. When I met Mark to discuss my haircut I was
immediately put to ease. I instantaneously trusted in his knowledge and expertise. He seemed to know
what I had in mind and he talked about his ideas. I told him to "do whatever he felt was right for me." I
am so happy that I gave Mark this control because I was so happy with the result. My whole experience
at the Mark Garrison salon was a positive one, from the upbeat atmosphere to the quality service I could
not have been more satisfied!

A great place for highlights!!! I get so many complements on my highlights, they often mistake them as my natural color. Patricia is the best, she keeps track of what color you get for each visit. This is great because you do not have to try to remember what she did last time...she's fantastic!!!!

Rachel took my suggestions when she cut my hair. She spent time creating the look that I wanted.
She told me that the haircut would grow out but look good as it did. She was not exaggerating!
Rachel also told me specific ways to care for my hair which is color processed and dry. I have taken all
of her suggestions and am very pleased with the results.
Usually, I like the cut in the shop and then have trouble maintaining it myself. I am so pleased that I got
a workable style that fits me to a T.

In the past, I've experienced some horrendous results after going to model nights at various hair salons throughout the city Some problems I have encountered in the past were: poorly supervised students, snobby/pretentious atmosphere, poor treatment of hair models (who, mind you, are still PAYING CUSTOMERS) and lastly, failure to ask ME what I wanted done to my hair.

Much to my pleasant surprise, I did not experience any of these problems at Mark Garrison. The student was thoroughly supervised by a trained stylist (and even Mark himself!) and I felt like the whole team worked together to assess my hair. They asked me what I want and I got it. The entire staff was extremely welcoming. I really think I got more than a $40 haircut from this experience. Further, I will probably return as a customer of the supervising stylist, Maria (Marie?) she was great!

Mark Garrison is an exceptional salon in mid-town that blends elegance and service, making clients feel as though they are the most important person in the salon! From the colorists to the stylsts who dry your hair, everyone is exceptional! The staff are very attentive, polite and cater to the clients needs! It is sometimes a bit difficult to get thru the receptionist and they are a bit strong as gatekeepers. As a long time customer I have a rapport with my colorist and he is very flexible to take me despite his schedule!
Overall Mark Garrison has a wonderful staff and I always leave the salon with a smile on my face and a wonderful new look which I get tons of compliments on!

Prior to coming to Mark Garrison, I had bounced around to a number of salons for my color. But when I was fortunate enough to come under the care of Andrew, a colorist with an astute sense of what color looks good on a client, I knew that I had found a home. Andrew reasoned that my color needed to be lighter to better complement my skin tone. I was a little reluctant at first, more comfortable with a darker color. But, his suggestions made sense and I intuitively felt that he had a good sense of style. So, I put myself in his hands. I'm glad that I did. In the short time that I have been going to him, I have received at 8 compliments. Some from people who don't usually comment about others' appearances. And, once I got away from the darker color and actually tested the water with a lighter one, I could tell the difference. So, I would recommend him to anyone.
Also, I like the salon. It is clean, light and airy.

After trying many high end salons in NYC a friend told me about Mark Garrison and their model program. I decided to try it and was lucky enough to get Andrew as my colorist. Andrew takes time to get your color just right, whether I go in for a root touch up or highlights. I get many compliments on my hair color and have recommended Andrew many times. The salon is beautiful, everyone is so nice, and they let me bring my dog! What else could you ask for?

Pros: Beautiful salon, Nice People, Great Colorist (Andrew), Pet Friendly

Cons: It's on the Upper East Side and I live on the Upper West : )

There is only one colorist I have let touch my hair in the past 6+ years and it is Joseph, the head colorist at Mark Garrison Salon. He is an absolute genious - people literally stop me on the street asking me about my color. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I have been a MG customer for some time, and enjoyed the services of both junior and senior stylists. I have experienced remarkable results in the model-night program in both the hair styling and color platforms. I have enjoyed the attention of the salon owner on more than one occasion and remain amazed at his incomparable talent and uncompromising craftsmanship. Have had amazing haircuts from Redd, Sanae, Rachel Lee and Tiscia. Patricia is an awesome colorist with outstanding technical skills, a practiced eye achieving consistent and amazing results each and every time. I cannot envision anyone else coloring my hair or venturing anywhere else for styling. Salon is spacious and fresh coffee and ice water are on hand on every floor. I have recommended the salon for years and will surely continue to do so. See you there. Peace.

I have been going to Redd for over a year now and Patricia for color, for several years...My haircuts always hold their shape and look great for weeks and Patricias color is so natural people don't even realize I highlight! Great staff!

I was very reluctant to start coloring my hair, having always liked my natural color. Joseph was recommended by a friend, so i gave him a try. The result was so natural looking that my own mother didn't realize i started to color my hair. Joseph's assistants and the rest of the staff are friendly and very professional. I highly recommend the salon.

I have been going to Redd at Mark Garrison for a year now and I would never go anywhere else. I am one of those people who has always gone for high end haircuts and been disappointed by the way other hairdressers at other well-known NYC salons have styled my hair; until I saw Redd for the first time I'd always say after a haircut, "I have to fix it when I get home". Redd, on the other hand, always makes me look my best and I push off washing my hair for as long as possible after one of her cuts! She is super thorough and actually listens to what you're looking for, never rushing through the experience. I always look forward to going back for a cut.

I have never met anyone as passionate about hair color as Patricia. She often talks about new techniques she?s learned and new classes she?s taken. It?s obvious that she believes in staying up to date and, as a result, her clients are very loyal. Her name seems to be mentioned more than any other coloris on Citysearch. The person who used to cut my hair recently left, so I tried someone else and it was disaster!! I came back and Mark fixed my hair. He gave me such a great cut, that he?s the only person I?m going to see from now on. Yes, he?s expensive, but his cut seemed to last longer than most. I usually get my hair cut every 6-8 weeks, but after going to him I went 4 months! Plus, the cut/color I received was so bad that I cried for days. My hair was so fried that it took half a year to get back to where is was before. I will never stray again!! Just as a side note, that was not the first time I tried another salon. I moved an hour and a half outside of Manhattan 2 years ago and have been looking for someone closer. The results were terrible. Now, I know it's worth the drive!!

I have lots of fine, naturally curly hair. Mark is the best (only) person I have found who can style and cut it so I am happy with the outcome, and for months. I have been travelling to NYC from Baltimore to get my hair done by Mark since 1992. The trip is a pain so I have tried all the recommended folks in Baltimore and Washington, DC - even the famous ones who cater to our First Ladies - to no avail. After a visit to Mark I often get comments from strangers about the shape and fabulous cut of my hair.

After all these years I also need color and Sam does it so it looks great and completely natural. Everyone at the Garrison Salon makes sure you are totally satisfied before they let you out the door!
