Lee is now at Le Salon Chinois so I, of course, had to move with her. Lee is still the best (she was at Ink) and this salon is even nicer than her former place. Plus the location is even more convenient. Lee is the best, most exacting and nicest stylist ever. She's even relaxed my hair, so I now have normal looking hair. Who knew that was even possible?

Pros: Most precise stylist ever

I spend the whole day at this salon getting my brazillian straightening. It usually takes around 4-5 hrs. I might be there for 5 hrs but ill feel like im at home with my girlfriends hanging out. Everyone is friendly and caters to your needs. My hair looks amazing when i leave. They are so careful with their products that my hair does not feel, look, or gets damaged. I walk out of the salon feeling like a barbie doll!!! i highly recommend this salon to everyone

Pros: hair colorist specialist and brazillian straightening

I went here for Spa Week and got a typical $75+ hair cut for only $50. I had this awful dutch boy bob and Christina gave me a short 'do that looked fabulous. More than that I didn't even need to style it (I have awkward wavy hair) for it to look neat. It just dried and fell perfectly after showering. Minimal hair spray on the bangs and it looked like I had just walked out of the salon. With hair that's a bizarre combination of wavy, curly, and straight this was a godsend. More than that, I called and got an appointment for the SAME DAY at that morning. The receptionist was friendly. the only drawback is that they charge you for missing the appointment, so if you make an appointment, make sure that you show up (not that I didn't learn that the wrong way).

Pros: Accomodating staff, good service

not only did i get 20% discount as a first timer i also got to experience the greatest hair service. My color was spectacular! I went from black to blonde and my hair felt and looked great. My haircut was just as amazing because i was given the most perfectionist bob cut ever. Sharp angled bob was what I wanted and it was what I got!
must see JOHN....

Ok, lets start with 50 year old style books then move on to the hair dressers who have REALLY BAD haircuts themselves and can hardly speak English!! On top of it all they are super rude. Don't waste your money because I can promise you that you will NOT be happy at all!!! There are so many good places in the city, trust me, do yourself a favor and don't go to that place or you WILL regret it!! If there was a way I can give NO stars as all, trust me I would!!!

I tried this place last week and got the best mens cut I've ever got in New York. The pricing was more than fair and I'm rocking a cut that even my girl said, "looks amazing!". Look no further if you want an excellent cut!!!!!

So... love their work!!! They constantly cut, color and style my hair. They are absolutely professional and amazing results each time. But the only negative was when i wanted to use the spa, they were closed because they were expanding. But everything else is A+

I desperately needed a bl*w out and styling done for a last minute fashion event that was invited to. SCRAMBLING i found Salon Chinois. They got me in right away and while i did mention that it was an EMERGENCY, they were so super nice about fititng me in. Patty, my stylist, re-styled my hair and even found time to cut it for me. All my friends loved my new look and i did too! Everything (even the party) was a total unbelievable success. Thank you so much Patty for making me look THIS GOOD!!

Contrary to the previous comment i personally love this salon, i have been seeing Yan personally for over six years and he has been more than accommodating, and knows exactly what he's doing. Not only that but the atmosphere of the salon proves stellar and the staff is more then professional.

HAIR STRAIGHTENING: I've been getting the Japanese Hair Straightening done for the past 5 years, and was THRILLED when I found Salon Chinois 3 years ago. The other places I'd been to left my hair fried and smelly. At Chinois, Patty has done my hair straightening about six times now (2-3 times a year) and she's a godsend. She knows the in's and out's of the process, is very meticulous, and I walk out of there every time with straight and HEALTHY hair. Seriously, the straightening actually MINIMIZES my split ends, breakage and dryness, all of which my natural hair is prone to. Other "top" salons I've been to don't even remotely compare in terms of service and quality. I just moved out of the country but am scheduling a trip to NYC just so that I can get my straightening done with Patty... I don't trust anyone else to do it!

HAIRCUT: I get my hair cut with Yan, the owner, who's the friendliest person ever, not to mention a genius when it comes to hair. My hair has never looked this good! He takes his time and does a perfect job every time. He'll totally listen to what you want: he's not one of these stylists that will chop off 4 inches when all you want is to trim the ends. He'll also give you advice about how to style it the way he does. And it's so refreshing to go to a nice salon in NYC that isn't snobby.. Yan will chat it up while cutting your hair and gives you the sort of personal attention that is hard to find.

STAFF: Everyone in the salon is extremely friendly and it has a great positive vibe.

BOTTOM LINE: All in all, HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place. Note: I'm extremely picky and hard to please, but they've totally won me over!

I am cursed with the worst pin straight, flat and thin hair. I was in desperate need of a make over. I walked into the salon based on the recommendation of a friend who see Yan *the head stylist* Yan was booked by they had me set up to see Ilda. I was a little nervouse because I know how disastrous new hair places can be, but when I walked in I was greeted by a male receptionist who was gracious , warm and made me feel really comfortable. In fact, ALL OF the staff was equally friendly and inviting. Really eager to make me feel welcome. My hair came out amazing. Ilda put fantastic layers and actually convinced me to do add highlights and I have to say I will never go any place else again. For me, what makes this place unique also is that they have a spa upstairs! You get your hair done downstairs and then go upstairs to have your nails and/eye brow waxing done also. Its one stop beauty and I am definitely going back. Definitely try Ilda.

Pros: Warm Friendly Service, Great Haircuts! Salon and Spa in one place

Cons: Its really busy and you have to book in advance on all services

.

I have friends and family who have been going to this salon since it's opening (and have been following both Yen and Jose for years) and it's a wonderful place. The staff is talented and amazing and you feel like a queen when you leave. I haven't tried the spa services yet, but I've heard raves about them.

I have been to a few hairdressers in New York and didn't really like any of them, however this place is really good. They try and fit you in even at short notice and when the lift doors open I fall in love with the girl on reception every time!
The pricing is pretty good for a man and I guess repeat visits prove I'm satisfied.

In response to digarnick's review I would just like to say that I was the receptioinst at Le Salon Chinois on the day of her appointment and I would just like to point out to the public that it was digarnick's daughter who had gotten the single process with our colorist, and that it was her daughter who insisted on having a blow-out we in no means pushed the service as it is our philosophy to push our clients to do services. I would also like to mention that we did the eyebrows under the price of the single, any other client that would want to have their eyebrows done it cost a little extra. I would also like to point out that her daughter had gotten a blow-out with our head stylist Yan Chia, who charges his clients $75 for a blow-out, her daughter consistently mentioned that the cost of the blow-out did not matter because she wanted to have it done one way or another. The only reason why our operations manager threatened to call the authorities was this client made a big scene in our salon saying that she would not pay for any of her services in front of our clients who had come in to relax and get pampered. What digarnic failed to mention was that she recieved 30% off of the blow-out, which is more than we usually offer. And i would like it to be known for the record that my manager in NO way yelled at me or reprimanded me, digarnick misunderstood the situation and was a little to emotional so she must've thought that i had gotten yelled at. I would like our clients to know that Le Salon Chinois has never believed in any such thing as "hidden fees", it is our mission to please our clients to the fullest extent.

The colorist was wonderful and with the first time coupon it was only $68 (for a single application) including eyebrows. However, when they were done coloring they asked if I wanted it blow-dryed. I changed seats and they charged me an extra $75 for blow-drying. They say the coupon doesn't apply to blow-drys. To top it off when I asked why I wasn't told the fee was extra and so high, the owner's wife yelled that she will "call the authorities on me" if I don't pay right away. When the receptionist apologized to me, the same woman yelled at her own receptionist. Unless you have money (and patience) to burn, avoid Le Salon Chinois!

Irina has been my colorist for years. I started going to her after a horrible hair coloring disaster. She was able to save my hair and I will follow her anywhere. I prefer natural looking highlights which Irina does with the balayage technique. My hair is naturally a dark to medium brown and you would never know it. She has also colored my two sisters, each of us with a different look. Not only is she an excellent colorist, but a caring, lovely person. I highly recommend Irina for all your coloring needs!

Hi Guys,
I got the japanese straightening a few weeks ago by John and it was the worst experience ever.
First of all, he was the only working on my hair so it took hours.
But more importantly, he didn't seem to know what he was doing and I've gotten it done once before (a year ago) and it was clear that he was incompetent.
It's now been several weeks and my hair is really REALLY coarse and dry, like horse hair.
I've never had it this texture before.
My hair is naturally soft and the first time I got TR/japanese straightening done, it was beautiful, shiny and straight.
Now it's unnatural, and coarse and while it's straight it looks absolutely horrible.
I had the worst salon experience as well.....
I urge you to go somewhere else if you want good results for your TR.
John isn't experienced enough and I'm def. going back to the first salon I got it done at for my retouch and subsequent visits.
Good Luck.

So, I went here because they were offering a special on highlights and Jose, the colorist, recommended Ilda for cuts. Since they were also offering a special on all services that day, I decided to go for it. A bad experience with a stylist at a different salon has left me with a haircut I hate, and the newfound knowledge that I would rather eat tin foil than have layers in the back of my hair ever again. I have been hopping from salon to salon since trying to fix this unbelievably costly mistake. At my first consultation with Ilda, she explained why the cut didn't work and realistically told me my options. There wasn't much she could do with the back, since I am unwilling to cut it short, but she did make the front layers look nicer. After growing my hair out a little more, I came back so she could clean the layers in the back a little more. It will probably be another 3 months before the back grows out enough so that she can even it all out, and I want to kick myself for having gotten myself in this situation in the first place, but I am very happy that I managed to find such a great stylist. Ilda will go into detail about what will and won't work for you and takes the time to really talk with you to make sure she understands exactly what you want. She is fantastic at cutting; in the past I've almost always had to even out my hair myself after a cut, at least a little. But I don't have to do that when Ilda cuts my hair - she gets it right the first time. I really trust her judgment, and she is a genuinely nice person. At $75, she is a bargain for NYC standards (but still a little expensive for me), and I honestly believe that she can do a far better job than many stylists charging three times that amount. She is the only person I trust now to cut my hair. Thank you Ilda!

I've been here before for a haircut and Patti did a really nice job. But I've been coloring my hair for years and I can't find a good colorist. I know what I want and what I cannot stand is when a colorist says, "That won't look good, we cannot do it for you." To me, that translates to: "I'm not a good colorist, I don't know how to mix it." Well, I went in and my colorist was late so I wound up with Jose who I will now never leave. I showed Jose exactly the color I wanted and that's exactly the beautiful rich, deep burgundy color I got! Although if the color was inappropriate for me, he would have told me so, but I knew it was "do-able". Jose is a funny character, very very friendly and the atmosphere is not stiff at all. Everyone was so nice and accomodating that they will definitely see me again..and again....The woman who washed my hair, Yan and Jasmine, all very personable and very helpful when it came to purchasing some hair products for my hair. My hair looked great this morning after using the new products. A winner.

I got my hair permanently straightened here... great job! They were on the ball and watched the clock very closely so as to not overprocess my hair with chemicals - which did not smell as bad as they usually do. Good products, great attention, awesome customer service (coffee, tea and they offered to bring me menus so I could order lunch since I was in the chair for 4 hours!!) Cristina cut my hair after - she is fabulous. The discount helped too :)

I have the flattest straight hair imaginable. I've gone to MANY places for wash and style jobs all my life. This past saturday i had a big wedding to attend. I made a reservation at Salon Chinois at the recommendation of my girlfriend who has been getting her haircut there by Patti. I made an appointment for a wash and style and my hair came out beautiful. I received compliments all night about the amazing curls and body. Ilda worked on my hair and all she used was a blow dryer and brush!!! The curls stayed in all night...and i'm definitely going back@!!!!

I made an appointment for a wash and style and my hair came out beautiful. I received compliments all night about the amazing curls and body. Ilda worked on my hair and all she used was a blow dryer and brush!!! The curls stayed in all night...and i'm definitely going back@!!!!

This was my first experience to a spa treatment and I must say this will definitely NOT be my last. At Le Salon Chinios, you will walk into a soothing environment and be greeted with friendly faces. I was a little nervous at first but the relaxing atmosphere quickly put me at ease and the friendly staff help answered any questions I had. The massage was fantastic, the facial was purifying, and the customer service was on point throughout the whole time. Best of all, the hair cut I received was absolutely fabulous. I have to admit that this hair cut is one of my best ever plus I really enjoyed the numerous compliments I received. I sincerely recommend this place to anyone who feels they need to be pampered. Like I saidyou will get great service and you will completely walk out feeling satisfied.

I recently went to Spa Chinois to host a bachelorette party for my sister. Not only was the staff super nice and friendly, they were also VERY helpful. Everything from the atmosphere (the decor is very calming and serene) to the service (again, very polite staff) to the professional service (knowlegable and courteous staff) was AMAZING. We had an awesome time and it's all thanks to Spa Chinois. I definitely recommend Spa Chinois as a prelude for a Girls Night Out or just go for an everyday pampering.

I've never been to a salon in which the stylist gave so much thought into a haircut. Yan was extremely professional and he was so detail in his cut I felt beautiful even without a blow dry. The decor was trendy, the place was neat and tidy, the staff was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I am ecstatic with my new haircut! It's so easy to manage and I've gotten a ton of compliments!! I LOVE IT!!!!! :)

I'm picky, been to top NYC salons, & am searching for the perfect balance of atmosphere, service, & cost. I look at all the details when spending my money, & feel qualified to share. Went to Le Salon Chinois based on an web ad, the pictures looked nice & the 20% discount was attractive. Got there -- totally different. Firstly, what a mess! Cluttered & wasn't that clean. Music was cheesy elevator music -- not hip, chic, or relaxing. Doctor's office/supermarket music. Unfriendly receptionist didn't tell me where to go, just waved me "over there". Then came the service. Nice woman, but brief consult & I felt unsure she "got me" (seemed hurried). My hair wasn't horrible, but average at best. Then she started trying to sell me stuff. An iron, products, a manicure -- HARD SELL, ANNOYING. Signs for specials and products for sale EVERYWHERE. Needs a major overhaul.

I found Yan and Le Salon Chinois on citysearch, and I coundn't be more pleased. The people at the salon ( from the receptionist to the girl who washed my hair) were all very nice professional and accomodating and Yan gave me a wonderful haircut. I recommend it highly.

I've been to many upscale salons throughout NYC and was never completely satisfied until I discovered Le Salon Chinois. I went for the Japanese Thermal Reconditioning Treatment, which one of their specialists, Jose Rodriguez did for me. It took up to 6 hours and Jose couldn't have been more accurate and attentive. All of the staff were so kind and you could tell were highly experienced and outstanding at what they do. Every client left the salon looking happy as can be. The results were exactly what I'd hoped for and they gave me 20% off because it was my first visit. I mentioned coming back just for a trim of my bangs, which the celebrated owner, Yan, luckily overheard. He immediately offered to cut them for me on the spot at no extra charge. Best salon ever! I can't wait to check out their new spa...

I found Le Salon Chinois here on citysearch, and after looking around their website, decided to call for highlights and a haircut. The receptionist gave me an appointment with a young woman, and the gentleman who cut my hair turned out to be her husband! They both took such time and care in the execution of my hair services - like no other hairdressers I've been to in the past. I love the results, and have a feeling I will be returning to them both for many years to come. Besides liking my hair and the people who did it, I really liked the salon also. It was pretty and clean and everyone was very friendly to me. This was the first time I've used citysearch to find something, and I had terrific results - I hope others will read my review and have the same experience.

I came to Le Salon Chinois based on a referral from my niece. The young lady who cut and styled by hair did a wonderful job. I have had no trouble with the haircut myself at home, and I think this haircut will last quite some time. I am even considering switching to this salon for haircolor. I truly enjoyed the upscale atmosphere and decor, and the professionalism of the staff (a rarity in my many years of salon patronage).

I visited Le Salon Chinois for the first time for a hair cut and
color and I just wanted to say that this was one of the finest
experiences I've had in NYC so far. I really didn't know what to
expect, but the staff is so warm and friendly, its hard not to feel
comfortable. They serve wonderful green tea as they style your hair!!!
Yan has a wonderful sense of style and he is not afraid of being honest
with what looks good and what doesn't. Jose, the hair colorist, did a
fantastic job with the highlights, the color is so natural, yet lively.
Its exactly what I wanted. For a great hair cut and color I highly
recommend Le Salon Chinois...with Yan and Jose!

All I have to say is OH MY GOD! I went to Le Salon Chinois by the recommendation of a friend. She had told me that I only really needed 2-3 hair cuts a year if I had a great cut by a great stylist. (I usually get a cut every 2 months for upkeep.) With this advice, I made an appointment with Yan. Let me tell you, my hair cut was absolutely BEAUTIFUL. The cut was classy, yet it was versatile enough where I can style it trendy when I went clubbing. The salon itself is very chic with an Asian feel to it. It's been 3 1/2 months since my cut and I don't even need a touch up. Three other co-workers went to Le Salon Chinois under my recommendation (the cut spoke for itself too) and also loved it and recommended their family and friends to go.

Great salon; Friendly Staff.

I have very fine hair and am not the type of person who likes spending a lot of time on my hair. I didnt know what kind of cut to get...BUT thank goodness for Yan. He suggested a new style for me. I got a great new cut and best of all...I dont need to spend any time fixing it every morning.

I highly recommend Le Salon Chinois!!!

I'm so happy I tried Le Salon Chinois. I recently had my first thermal reconditioning treatment with Jose, and my (normally frizzy, dry) hair is straight, smooth, sleek and shiny! I didn't think it was possible. The salon itself is very nice, and the staff took wonderful care of me. After this great experience, I'm hooked!

Beautiful salon - very classy. The staff is gracious, the salon is immaculate. I have been nothing short of thrilled with my haircuts and color all the way down the line. I've been sending my friends and family to Le Salon Chinois, left and right - for me, this is rare! I might just add this: I am incredibly picky about my hair. They get my thumbs up, that's for sure!
