I am from Ohio and wanted to get an edgier ""do while in NYC on holiday. Have been to several high priced NYC salons over the years and my research took me to Bodhi which was rated number of the top 10 NYC salons in 2010 (same owners, why not give it a try). Took the 45 minute train ride to Brooklyn and wow was it worth it! Great style, great prices...don't be afraid to walk in and tell them to have at it! PS: I got cut and color and both are awesome!

I had waited almost a year to get my hair cut and colored. It was really long so I had to be READY. Adeline and Jean Marc were very understanding and knew since I had been there before that it was going to be traumatic experience for me. I brought lots of pictures to show them exactly what I wanted. They were both really patient. I had emailed Adeline photo's throughout the year asking questions about color. She was great! I would have gotten tired of hearing from me, but she was wonderful.
So, after all the pix, emails and phone calls, my color and cut turned out great! I love it. No need to go to Manhattan anymore!! Also have to give a shout out to Enzo the beautiful Australian Shepard that greets you as you come in. Awesome.

I went to Bodhi for the Brazilian Blowout. First of all, the experience was so relaxing. Anyone who has ever had a Dominican Blowout may be able to sympathize. It usually involves being under the dryer for so long your ears burn. And then the actual blowout usually involves a scalp burn or two. Ouch! Jean-Marc did a fabulous job and it was totally painless.

And a week later, I am loving it!!! The Brazilian Blowout leaves your hair much softer and moisturized. Blowing it out myself was a lot easier now. It's well worth it!!!

I had booked an appointment with the salon in June, 2010 ... I was not able to keep the appt as I got very ill. When I called to apologize for not being able to call to cancel because I got sick and I did not know when I would be able to make another appt. the receptionist/owner? said I could come in at a later date and get my hair done with the $85!!! dollars they took out of my acct. Well, I needed surgery and am just now getting around to making an appt for the promised haircut. I was told Guite Rudely that I CANNOT get my hair cut (as promised), that I CANNOT get my money back and that they were busy and could not speak to me and explain why the change of heart! They are rude, and not faithful , they say one thing and do another!! Who ever heard of having to give your credit card number to make an appointment in the first place! Highly Recommmend that you Never GO There to get your hair done!!!!!

Jean Marc is an absolute perfectionist; definitely a quality you want in a hair stylist. Both Adeline and Jean Marc know their stuff and take pride in what they do. You will get Manhattan quality at a Brooklyn price. This couple is definitely the way to go.

Being shy and overwhelmed, I walked out of Bodhi in a trance and I had a bit of a delayed reaction to the edgy tres jolie hair that was created for me by Adeline - the color, the cut and the style was so wonderful. I don't even know when I last felt like this - what a kick! The karma was so good to find a hair sister who knows so much - I really needed it because I've been going it alone for so long. Now I look forward to returning over and over to the Bodhi Salon a peaceful, perfect, magical place.

Let me just say that I don't let anybody but Jena Marc cut my hair for the last 10 years. At some point I moved from Brooklyn to Manhattan. It took one unsuccessful visit to a fancy salon to realize that Bodhi Salon is worth a trip to Brooklyn. Jean Marc and Adeline are amazing. I am waiting for my hair to go grey so I can become her client too!
With love, Elena

My only regret about going to Bodhi Salon is that I didn't try it years ago. Jean Marc is skilled at what he does and he shaped my thick, wavy hair from a frizzy mess into a stylish cut. I also really just like the vibe there -- down to earth, good conversation. I have not had color done there yet but I plan on going back soon for that. I am high maintenance about my hair and very hard to please...and I definitely give this salon a major thumbs up!

I decided on Bodhi Salon after reading many great reviews on Citysearch. I am hoping that my review can cancel out at least a few of the good ones, as I had a terrible experience there. Adeline did my highlights twice and they were fine, not the best ever but I have always had a hard time finding a good place in Brooklyn and I thought she did an okay job and figured that if I communicated better with her I'd end up with better results. Wrong.

The second to last time I went in for highlights I ended up with a lot of red/orange tones, as she didn't keep the foils in for long enough (that is my best guess of what went wrong). I went back and complained and she tried to blame my shampoo but eventually she did a process to my hair that turned all of my roots very orange, and did not do much to fix the bad tones in the highlights. The best part was that she didn't tell me until the end that I was going to be charged about $80 for this process. Why I should have to pay for her mistake, and not even leave the salon happy is beyond me. Before she went through with all of this I had requested that she just touch up my individual highlights, but she wouldn't, as I have a feeling that would have been more work than she wanted to do.

I went back one final time as she promised that next time around it would look great. Wrong again. I still left the salon with many orange/red tones. Adeline had a very bad attitude about the whole situation, and refused to accept any blame. Everyone I asked agreed that my hair looked orange. I also found that her highlights were never right at the root, and I would end up with bad roots within 2 weeks. I have finally just dyed my hair brown on my own (with great results), as I felt that my once beautiful blonde hair was now beyond an easy to fix point.

Also note that they illegally charge more if you use a credit card over cash.

I have also had my hair cut by Jean-Marc, and I would not recommend him for those with long hair. For one he does not listen, and he uses techniques (like the use of a clipper) that are best for those with short hair. I have seen him cut many short haired women and they did look good, but I do not think that long hair is his forte. All in all I would not recommend this salon.

In response to the salon's response below-Why does the ""service tax"" not apply to cash payments?

I love you Bodhi Salon! I have been going here for 4 years. I have never cheated on them, always stayed faithful as Jean-Marc and Adeline are my favorite. I had my hair cut and colored 2-3 weeks ago and those first 2 days after I had it done, I swear 30 people complimented on it. If you have short hair know that Jean-Marc can do amazing things for you, I have been to many salons prior, in the city (I'm not naming any names), that were not as skilled and never made me look as good as Bodhi Salon does.

They will always do what makes you look good. They listen to what you want and follow through EVERYTIME! Why else would I have been coming here for years?!?! Adeline really knows her color (I mean REALLY knows it) Jean-Marc is an artist, he has so many tools and uses all of them. Him and Adeline also know what products are best to use, best to mix together, etc They're always up to date and informative.

Enzo, their Australian Shepherd, he's the sweetest, you'll want to take him home with you, I do every time I visit. The price is reasonable for the high quality of service you'll receive, it's a win win situation, you would be crazy not to check this place out!

First, you will be greeted in a friendly, professional manner by both human and adorable dog. Then, enjoy a massaging hair wash to revitalize your scalp. You will then move over to the chair of your Oh So Amazing Stylist, aka. Hair Genius! For me it was Jean-Marc. He listened to my concerns and knew just what to do. When I inquired as to appropriate styling products, he lead me in the right direction. It was the first time I walked out of a salon feeling my style was current and not an old fashioned, basic cut and blow. I waited 3 weeks before posting this to ensure exceptional growth and styling endurance and I am still pleased overall. The quality of my hair has dramatically improved thanks to my unique cut and great new products. I now tell everyone to check out this salon and just know they will not be disappointed! I can't wait to go back for some beautiful coloring :)

Cons: You will not find anything to complain about

Raves for Jean-Marc, who gave me an incredible cut and restored my locks from dry and brittle to soft and swinging. His amazing blow-out added to his magic makeover...so lucky to have found this jewel of a salon.

I made my first visit to this salon a couple days before Easter of this year. It definitely will not be my last! I was greeted by a very friendly staff and got my hair cut by Marc. He engaged me in conversation and very importantly asked exactly what I wanted done with my hair. I told him about a prior bad haircut where my bangs were cut too short, and he made it a point to not cut off too much. My hair looks so beautiful and healthy. If you're looking for a Manhattan quality salon without Manhattan prices, this is the place to go!

I have searched Brooklyn for a friendly, fashionable, amazing salon and found it in Bodhi. I have never been treated nicer by total strangers. I walked in and was listed to as well as given advice about my new style. I was given tips on how to take care of my new fabulous look and felt like royalty while I was in the chair. I will never go to another salon again. The service was remarkable. This place a fun down to earth style with wonderful staff from the woman who washes your hair, to the stylist, to the owners. Hands down incredible. Thank you Bodhi for my new look! Everyone loves it.

Bring your ideas to Bodhi and the stylists are eager to put together a look that will compliment your features - one that you can make work in your day to day life. Mariya was my hair stylist and she was very enthusiastic about her work, and offered helpful advice on how to manage my hair. My color turned out vivacious and the style had a pleasantly natural appeal. Highly Recommended.

This is the first really good haircut I've had for years.
I was lucky enough to get an appointment the day I called.
These are lovely, talented people, with great senses of humor. And, their beautiful dog, Enzo, who hangs out with them in the salon. I highly recommend them. Very experienced, bright, interesting.

After a year of not getting a haircut, my locks were in desperate need of attention. I gave Jean-Marc creative license to work his magic and we were both trs heureux (very happy...if my French is correct) with the results! I highly recommend this salon and almost don't mind paying the ridiculous tolls to get there from NJ.

I've been going to Bodhi Salon for almost three years now, and have been pleased with everything they've done for my hair, from cuts to Brazilian straightening to highlights. I have to disagree with the reviewer who said not to go here for blonde-- I've always been really happy with the color I've gotten here!

This is a really laid-back, no-attitude, yet very professional salon. Highly recommended!

I was attracted to the salon by its website and the fact that it is owned and operated by a husband and wife. They and their staff were very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately, the blond highlights I received were awful. They were brash and trashy-- super blond, the kind of blond that turns after a few shampoos; I think bleach must have been used, because I have since had much breakage and many split ends; the highlights were thick and not spaced out well; worst of all, they began far from the roots, so already at one month out from the appointment, it looks more like 2-2.5 months, and that I need re-highlighting. I had to go to another salon to get a full head of lowlights to achieve a more believable and flattering blond color. I've never written an online review before, but wanted to save someone else from having this happen to them! Plus, it was expensive!!-- I was charged Manhattan salon prices for highlighting-- AND a surcharge for using a credit card. That is absolutely unheard of-- I've never had that happen in any other nice salon in the U.S.-- and was sort of the last straw for me, driving me to post this review.

I have been to Bodhi twice and on both occasions my hair has come out great. Adeline is amazing with color. She has given me great highlights that remain beautiful for months. I have gotten many complements on my hair. Adeline is also very easy to talk to and down to earth. The owners also have a wonderful dog named Enzo, who is extremely friendly. His presence just adds to to calm ambience in the salon. If you want great hair go to Bodhi!

I have been going to the Bodhi Salon for about 5 years now, and I can't imagine trusting anyone else with my hair. If I ever leave New York, I'll be making trips back just to get my hair done.

This is the place not only to get your hair done... We are coming to Jean Marc and Adeline to talk, to relax and to rejuvenate!!!! I do not know how they are doing it! Seriously, we never tell anything how to style or how to cut, and we are always getting an excellent result! Our family (3 adults) is the customer of Bodhi salon for last 9 years (wow! i am surprised with this number as well!). We would not change this place for anybody else. Come and see to yourself....

I've been going to Bodhi for over 7 years now and everytime I go, I never have to wait. I'm always taken right away. Both Jean Marc and Adeline are always ready to listen and explain. If I'm unsure about what I want they will always talk it through with me and I'm always satisfied. \r
Many people search a long time to find a place where they can be relaxed and know what they'll be getting. If you're still looking for that ""place""...try Bodhi, as I'm sure you'll be very happy with your decision! Janet Montana

Many people search a long time to find a place where they can be relaxed and know what they'll be getting. If you're still looking for that ""place""...try Bodhi, as I'm sure you'll be very happy with your decision! Janet Montana

Pros: Never overbooked..they really care about your time

.

very professional. I shall be a regular!

They raised their prices when I came back, but it's still worth it.

Bodhi is the only salon I've patronized for more than a year or two; it is everything a first-class hair salon should be - and more. The cuts Jean-Marc give me unfailingly grow out beautifully, never go through an awkward stage and Adeline's coloring is always flawless. Something else that's important to me in a salon visit is the atmosphere, itself. The music playing is not the headache-inducing manic, ""trendy"" ,noise one is subject to in other salons and each time I leave Bodhi, I feel as relaxed as if I'd spent a day in a classy spa.

I go to school in Philadelphia, but my family lives in Bay Ridge so sometimes I will go home for the weekend. I hadn't had a haircut in about six months and really needed something new. I called up last minute Saturday morning and got an appointment with Mariya for the same afternoon. The salon is very nice, they don't try to overbook clients and you don't feel rushed. When I got there, I brought two pictures with me and Mariya spent alot of time talking to me and really understanding what I wanted and figuring out if the cut would work with the texture of my hair. She was very helpful with tips and giving me advice about how to style my hair. I love my haircut and will definitely be back for another haircut appointment with Mariya and possibly color or the Japanese hair straightening treatment.

Pros: Great prices, great services, staff really listens

I always have a little anxiety pre-first time visit at a new salon. I was immediately put at ease when I walked in- what a friendly, fabulous receptionist! I worked in customer service for many years, and I really appreciate being treated so well. I felt like I'd been coming here for years. I got there early, and was still seen almost immediately after I arrived. I never felt as if they stylists were rushed or that I wasn't being given their full attention, even though it was a busy Saturday.\r
\r
Not once in 25 years of getting my haircut have I ever had a stylist show the genuine interest and concern in making me look my best, that these two did! I only wish I'd found Bodhi sooner...so I would not have suffered as long as I did with unmanageable, dry hair that didn't suit my style or personality. Adeline discussed at great length with me what would look best for me, while also really listening to what I wanted. My color looks AMAZING! I've received so many compliments - My boyfriend says it's the best it's ever looked (both cut AND color.) I'll definitely be coming back!\r

Amazingly, I found Bodhi Salon on Citysearch. The reviews were mostly positive, so I decided to give them a try. That was a few years ago.\r
\r
As you will find out, Jean-Marc is an absolute perfectionist. He takes pride in what he does and it show in the finished product. He and his wife, Adeline, the colorist, really care about doing a great job. They do not try to push products on you, even though they have a great selection of first-rate products.\r
\r
Finding a good stylist can be a painful trial and error process. Save yourself the trouble--go here!

After going to every hair salon in Bay Ridge, I stumbled upon Bodhi... That was about 9 years ago and I now live 1 hour away and still make my trip once a month because nobody compares.\r
My hair is high maintenance and Adeline knows how to work my color like no other.\r
If you live in Brooklyn or even in the surrounding area, you won't be dissapointed if you are looking for quality services without the 5th Avenue prices.\r

I have been here 2 - 3 times in the last few years for a cut & style. The husband and wife team are very nice and professional. They never over book, so there is no long waiting or rushing you for someone else or anything like that. Jean Marc always tries to get a feel for what you want and make suggestions. I like this place but for me personally, have not always love loved the styles. I am sure I will go back here in the future, but I'm still looking for the magic place/ stylist that will sweep me off my feet. (lol - sounds like a personal ad!)

If you are like me.... then you have come across multiple hair salons where you come in as a first time customer and they cut your hair excellent. But the second or third time you come it feels like you are cattle and they rush to do your hair so that they can get to see more clients. Well look no further...I found the perfect place! Jean Marc is a master cut and stylist. He has great opinions if you are looking for a new style. But what I love with them the most is the consistency of service whether you been there 2, 3, 4, or 20 times. Also, they actually take time in listening to what you want. Which in a business of customer service is extremely important. Finally, I have to give Adeline great reviews for her ability to color hair and perm. Afterall, she is a master colorists which comes rare in my opinion. Lastly, give them a try I promise you will not be disappointed.

I love Bodhi! Everyone there is experienced, talented, friendly and completely relaxed. Of course if you want something the stylists don't think will suit you, they'll tell you, which might not work for everyone. Or if they want to do something that you don't want, clients need to be honest and speak up, they can handle it and will work with you. Their prices are incredible given their expertise and they will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Plus the dog is awesome.

Courteous, sensitive care and attention to detail. Really ""listened"" to me. Comfortable from the first moment I walked into the shop. Not pretentious in the least! They are artists, but inclusive and can relate to you no matter who you are.

Adeline was wonderful! My hair color was a mess-she did corrective color and brought me back to the color I thought I would never see again! I had it done about 3 weeks ago and the color has held up beautifully, even though I have a lot of gray and previously this had always been a problem at other salons. One week after the color I had the brazilian blowout done; which has made my hair soft and manageable. It is very easy to blowout my own hair now and it is nice and shiny! Adeline gave me a great cut too- she seemed to know exactly what I needed. I am very very pleased with the treatment at Bohdi and the staff is courteous and easy to talk to. I felt that I got exactly what I asked for. I would recommend them highly!

I went and got a brazilian blowout....it was perfectt...while Adeline was explaining me the process and also the outcomes, I did believe everything she was saying however at the end the results were much better and higher that I was imagining. Not only the frizzz didn't exsit any longer but also the color of my hair came out really good ( i didn't think that my color was that good but after the process it was magnificant). I think this process is great for frizzy hair and especially for someone that is trying to grow their hair...it gives the hair a very healthy look and touch. Another great thing about this place is the way they throw suggestions... I went it, I had no idea about what style to go for so I just told Adeline to do whatever she thinks would work best for my hair type and she did a great job. I would highly recommend this place and I would deff go there again!!!

I am a crazy about change and i have been going to the same stylist since i was a teenager. when i tried one or 2 other people in the past, I was never happy with the end result. But, I decided I wanted something different and needed to get it together and just start looking for someone new in Bay Ridge. I was EXTREMELY hesitant and skepitcal about going to someone new AND going to a place i had never even heard of, even though I've lived in Bay Ridge my whole life. I went to Adeline for the first time about a month ago for highlights and i have never been happier with the color. I have received compliments from everyone- ranging from my mother(who loves my natural hair color), to old friends i haven't seen in years. I was contradictory in telling Adeline what it was i wanted, however, she was very nice and really made me feel comfortable. i gave her a general idea of what i was looking for, we discussed what she thought would look best in combination with what i said i wanted, and i received highlights that looked both natural, yet noticeable. She is the only stylist i have been to that actually listened to what i was looking for and gave me exactly that on the first try. Also, i have thin hair, and she even gave me recommendations as to what to do when styling and for my next cut. i was so happy with the overall experience that i plan on trying them out for my next trim!

I went to Adeline for the first time about a month ago for a consultation. She was very nice and really made me feel comfortable. I have previously been going to the same stylist for over 5 years and when I got the courage to try other salons in the past, they never matched my color correctly nor did they cut my hair very well. So when I went to Adeline I was a little hesitant at first however she really understood what I wanted and made me feel confident in trusting her. The outcome was more than I could have asked for. A bonus was that she also had some great ideas about how to maintain my hair in between highlights since Im so light in color (blonde). I will definitely be going back to her for a long time and would recommend her to everyone!

I live in Bay Ridge but used to travel all over NYC to get my hair cut.

I started in Astoria. Haircuts were great but didn't justify the 2 hour train ride.

Then Manhattan. I visited several old-school barbers when I kept my hair super-short. For longer hair it wasn't the right place.

Finally my coworker suggested Bodhi, which is about 5 minutes away from my house. I've been a loyal customer ever since.

I waited until I had 3 haircuts to post a review - and each one has been amazing. Jean-Marc actually takes the time to examine my hair and talk to me about the style before even lifting the scissors. And he has an opinion, too, which is important. When I'm going to get my haircut, I'm intentionally seeking the advice of a professional - so I expect them to actually tell me what they think!

Jean-Marc always does.

But really the whole team is great. Adeline and Jean-Marc have created a very relaxed, very hip atmosphere (I swear it feels like I've left Bay Ridge) and their dog Enzo is perhaps the cutest dog I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.

To sum up: Guys, if you're ready to move up from the barbershop, go here. You'll get a great cut and won't have to fork over $80 for it. For all you womenfolk I can't vouch personally but everyone I see when I'm there looks a)great and b)happy.

And if you don't live in Bay Ridge it's about time you paid a visit anyway. Come early or stay a little later and enjoy the best Middle Eastern food in the city (Tanoreen) the best Sichuan this side of Queens (Grand Sichuan House) and then look out over the harbor from atop Owl's Head Park.

But seriously - get your haircut here.

I got my hair cut and Brazilian blowout at Bodhi salon. I was so impressed with Maryas skills and knowledge in hair.

Made my hair silky and shiny, I dont even spend any more time on it. It just looks amazing. Thanx Marya and Bodhi Salon for introducing me to this great product!!

Last time I had my haircut done by new stylist Mariya and I have to say she did an excellent job! She was very professional, accurate and trendy. I would recommend her, for you get the same results, but do not have to wait too long for the appointment......by the way, my husband was also very satisfied with his haircut, though he has a very problematic hair:)
