I have been a very happy and satisfied client of Sake's for many years now. Not only is he an expert colorist, but he's a mater of the shears as well. Typically, when you walk out of a salon after getting your color done, you pretty much

I just had the best cut and color i've ever had! I walked in to Hair Espirit as i was passing by and had a consultation with KELLY. She listened to my hair issues and suggested a major change. I love the result! I highly recommend her

I have been going to Hair Esprit for many years. I am very thankful that my friend recommended me to this salon. I have a very long and thick hair and there aren't many hairdressers out there that is as meticulous and patient as Saki.

I would highly recommend Hair Espirit and Saki in particular. He has been doing my hair since 1998 - when he was at another salon before Hair Espirit even opened. He does a fantastic job! I go regularly for haircuts as well as

Ok. So I was a previous regular at this salon. Got great hair cuts with a girl who has since left. Walked in last week and was randomly assigned to someone who just joined. She has bleached blond curly hair (i forget her name). I told her I wanted long side swept bangs and long layers. Mid way through chopping my long hair off she tells me she was a beautician and they were short staffed and asked her to come in so she just got her hair dressers license. She ended up butchering my hair. She gave me extremely short uneven bangs that are still sticking out on the sides. The rest of my hair was layered in an uneven haphazard way. I am tying it up everyday or putting it up in those butterfly clips to work. Its embarrassing. I was quite upset and talked to the manager Sake, but he did not offer to fix the job, just kept insisting it was fine. Also, I paid ~100, despite the awful mess. Really bad experience and I would strongly advise you to avoid it. This place is not what it used to be a few years ago.

Pros: Can't think of any

Cons: Amateur new hairdresser

This salon has one of the best kept secrets in New York City. The manager, Sake, is the best colorist and stylist for the money that you will find, including those fancy 57th street salons that charge 3-4X as much.
He's been highlighting and cutting my hair for 15+ years. I've never found anyone at that price point who does such a meticulous, professional job. There are many other good stylists at the salon as well.

I went to this place where I am used to go for blow-drys from time to time. The experience I had with trying to get new highlights was unbearable. I ask for Tina to do my highlights and she first said that I needed a new base color (68$ of course!) to avoid too mch contrast between lighter streaks and my natural color, which is pretty dark. After spending less than 10 minutes with the foil and disregarding my wish to give me lighter streaks to frame my face, I came out with irregular streaks that were not want I wanted at all. The color was completely off.Then she said she will give me a "glaze" with a reddish tone, which came out even worse!! Now there were no higlights (they quoted me 175$ for this, which she insisted was a good price and remember: she only spent about 10 minutes on the actual highlites!!) and my hair looked flat. The owner insisted that I had to pay for the base color, which I did, and asked me to come back a day later. I didn't, because I can't have them touching my hair again!! Too bad, since Brianna (the lady who washed my hair) was very nice. She would have probably done a much better job.

Pros: some nice people

Cons: bad service, miscommunication and pointing fingers at the customer after doing a bad job

Everyone knows how impossible it is to find that one stylist/colorist who knows how to do your hair perfectly no matter how many times you go back to them. Well I found my "one" with Kent. I never had so much faith in someone with my hair and I can't say enough about the amount of compliments I get every time I see him. His highlighting is so natural and his shaping is wonderful. If you're looking for that one person for your hair, see Kent!

I got a haircut twice from Saki and I am greatly happy with my haircut. I have a very thick hair and many have a hard time cutting my hair. But Saki did a great job and we also had a fun conversation. Again, I greatly recommend Saki (might be spelled Sake, not sure)

this place is a lot of value for the money. Spice has been cutting my hair for two years, since a friend recommended her, and I've never been disappointed. She's good, fast, totally pleasant.

I can't believe this place gets a 9.0 rating. When I first moved into the neighborhood I went here for highlights. My stylist was running 30 minutes late (strike 1), so I agreed to let someone else do my highlights (it was my first time anyway).

When I asked for a little more "contrast" to my blonde highlights, the stylist literally gave me alternating black and white stripes!! After 6 hours of botched attempts to remedy the siutation, I finally ordered him to stop touching my head and refused to pay for the highlights. I got charged full price for the hair cut and the owner did not even apologize. I had to go back to my old neighborhood and pay full price again just to have it fixed. Beware!

I asked for a trim and he cut 5 inches off (yes, 5!) and I asked him to layer it and he cut it straight... I didnt notice anything because I went home in wet hair (since I live around the block) when I took the bun off and noticed my hair missing I almost fainted! I will never go back there! I asked for a simple trim and layers.. and now I have shoulder length hair and straight.. not to mention my wedding is in 10 months and I wanted long curly hair! now I have to get extensions.. I think everyone gets my point! Im very disappointed. I dont know how anyone else cuts, but the guy who cut my hair just did not follow very simple instructions.

I love this place! I have been searching for a long time for the "perfect" haircut and got it from Sake!
I also get lots of compliments on my new hair color recommened by Sake the Hair Director. An added bonus is the best shampoo/massage you ever had.

I have been going to Jasmine for 4 years and no one else would ever do! She always listens and gives you the cut/color you ask for. She even traveled to Westchester to do the hair and make-up for my entire bridal party. There were four of us, each with very different taste and ideas of how we should look. She captured each personality perfectly and we couldn't have looked any better. A bride always glows, but with Jasmine helping there is no doubt you will look and feel your best!
