Full disclosure -- I am very fond of the stylist I've been going to for the past two to three years, and I even followed her when she opened her own salon, but her location is fairly out of the way for me and, thus, I keep putting off

I have long, straight brown hair and wanted a colorist who would give me blond highlights, without brassy. Nina does a beautiful job and every time, I love the results. If you are looking for fantastic blond highlights, book an appointment with Nina. Also, I recently started getting my pedicures from Maritiza, and from now on, I'm traveling the distance to see her. She does an incredible job. From start to finish, she pays attention to detail, takes her time and makes my feet feel and look wonderful. Trust me - add on a 15 minute shoulder massage from her at the end. It's heaven!

I have been going to Alma to get my highlights and hair cut for 8 years now. She does amazing work, Alma is so talented and really has a eye for what makes you look your best. She made me a blond 5 years ago and I wouldn't dream of ever turning back! And my color always looks so natural and healthy. Alma also does amazing up dos that look classy by with an edge. Very stylish!! I also get a facial at least once a month from Lordes, their facialist. She is amazing!! I always leave the Alma Salon looking my absolute best!

I have been to many salons in Manhattan...some good experiences along with some bad ones. I came across The Alma salon and made a great decision by getting my services done there. My stylist was Krystina and she was absolutely amazing. She listened to me about my likes and dislikes and her consultation with me was very thorough. The end result was fabulous!!

I went in to the alma salon wanting a change and gave me some and better. Coming in with long brown hair I had grown tired of my look and wanted a change. Without hesitation she chopped my hair and made me a blonde. As a person with long thick hair whose spent many hours in salons dyeing it I've never seen someone work so fast. Had a glass of wine while getting done-up and was extremely happy with my results. I go to her every few weeks for a touch up and have been blonde ever since. I'll never go anywhere else.

all i have to say is that i found myself walking inside this place...i never felt so confident and beautiful walking out of a hair salon before. Alma gave me the most amazing make over. I can't stop staring at myself in the mirror. I'm going through a difficult time of my life, but every time i go there she listens and always calls me to check up on me. I feel so much better and the service is to admire, all the girls are so dedicated and polite...their fashion sense makes me not only to take care of my self but even to go shopping more often. I highly recommend this place to anyone that is looking for real people to take care of them.

i came from Italy to New York city to study for my business. My work has to do with fashion. So you can imagine how important my image is to me. I was desperate because after a month here my hair was turning into a mess. Someone at the gym recommended the Alma salon, at Alma personally. Until this day i thank this woman because Alma's magic hand saved my job and my hair in the same time. What can i say about her staff... can't never forget Jlee's great energy, Lourdes's perfect touch and her sweet assistant Kiti...if you want a real amazing experience of NY city hair this will be the perfect place to get your color and your cut done. What can i say i am sold i cant let anybody else touch my hair ever again included my old hair dresser.

I have been going to The Alma salon for nearly 8 years now. Having moved here from California with not exactly the easiest hair to style (thick and wavy) -- I tried every high-end salon possilble to find the right color and blow-dry. Nobody has ever been able to blow-out my hair the way Nina does or get the blonde right. Nina is my girl, although Alma is amazing too. I travel a lot and while away --sometimes you still need a good blow-out -- despite visiting top salons around the country I have yet to find anyone better than the girls at Alma. I read some of these reviews while sitting on a conference call and felt compelled to write one-- The Alma Salon is- hands down- the best please for a perfect blow-dry!

Pros: Love the people, the talent and the way they do hair

I walked in on a whim to the ALMA salon hoping they could fix a previous coloring job that I was unhappy with. Nina, Kelly and the entire staff could not have been nicer and more accomodating and NINA truly worked a miracle on me! They offered me wine, tea a back massage and made me so comfortable. A friend I was meeting could not believe the transformation by the time they were done. I was so ecstatic when I walked out of there- I am a fan for life and will absolutely trust them again and again. Plus, the price was SO REASONABLE!!! Which made it all more than perfect. I don't live in the city, but will make the 60 minute trip from now on just to go there. My hair was SAVED. I can't wait to try more services and am very grateful that I took the chance. Thanks ALMA SALON! Hope to see you soon- EW

I have never written a review before but I thought my experience yesterday at Alma salon definitely deserved one!!! I just moved to the city a few months ago for a job and have been looking for salons to get a new trendy hair cut for my new life in NYC! I got a recommendation from a girl I work with who goes there regularly and absolutely loves the place. She said while I was there I should also try their facials which she swears by, and so of course I did. I have to say from the minute I walked in the salon I felt amazing! I was greeted with a friendly receptionist and staff, my jacket was taken off, and was offered a glass of wine immediately! I then met with Alma and we discussed a few ideas for my new do. She made me feel so comfortable and I was confident that she would make me look beatiful! She put some natural highlights and did the most cutest cut I have ever had! I have never been to a stylist that made my hair look as good as she did! I'm so happy with my hair and I have to recommend the facials to everyone. My skin looks amazing and it was such a relaxing experience! I definitely recommend Alma Salon, especially for all the new people in town like myself who are looking for a great salon! I found the one!!!!

I started a new job across the street from the Alma Salon and decided i'd try a new place. I spoke with hairstylist Raquel who offerered me some warm green tea when i sat in her chair. I asked her opinion on color and a new cut, she listened to what i wanted and my new look is amazing! I'm so glad i stopped by and i'm so excited about my new place!

I wish I had read these reviews before going into this place. The awful service began as soon as I sat down in the shampoo seat. The shampoo girl was extremely rough and rude, and chatted loudly with the girl next to her and didn't once say a word to me. Then when I sat in the stylist's chair (Alma), she was nowhere to be found, and was instead outside chatting on the phone for 10 minutes while I sat there and waited. When she finally came in, I tried to explain what I wanted, and specifically said 'Do not take off any length, I'm trying to grow out my hair." I just wanted some long layers and angles in front. Clearly that didn't mean anything to her, and she proceeded to attack my hair with a razor to 'thin out the ends' because my hair was too thick. Since when is having thick hair a bad thing? I couldn't see what was happening, and at one point I said, "you're not taking off length are you?" and she assured me she wasn't. She was very rough and kept pushing my head from one side to the other and came close to poking my eyes several times. When I felt my hair at the end, it felt like I had none left because the ends were so thin. The haircut itself isn''t awful, but it's not what I wanted, and it's about 2 inches shorter. My hair feels so thin and fragile now, and my long thick locks are gone. $85 to $100 for a wash, cut and dry are not worth it for bad service and bad stylists. i could have paid the same somewhere else and been treated like a valued customer.
Well it is obvious that his place is NOT a proffessional hair salon and most of the reviews are incredibly negative. Don't make my miatake and avoid this place.

Pros:are you kidding me!!!!!

Cons: EVERYTHING POSSIBLE

I don?t hail in the Great NYC, but I must say every time I make the trip Alma G Salon is a must stop before heading back home and hitting the hard streets of Chicago. From the moment I walk in I am greeted by the friendly staff. After a glass of Wine and a fine pedicure Alma takes over and displays her prowess in modern style all while providing the latest in hair treatment technology. Every time I step out the door my hair feels great and I think about the next time I can come treat myself again.

I have never written a review in my life for anything but I have to comment on this salon. I've got my color and cut by Alma and Im absolutely content. The experience from start to end was amazing. The receptionist was very friendly,she offered me a beverage and tried to accommodate me. Soon I was met by Alma, she asked me what I wanted and made suggestions on what would be suited to my face and my style. Her confidence and genuinity made me feel comfortable.She gave me a trendy cut and a rich,dark color. I was truly impressed by how shiny and healthy my hair was after the color. I felt great. I admire and respect Alma and the Salon staff.

I went to this salon several times. The first hair cut by Alma was wonderful. After that my experience was down hill. Once I asked for a few highlights between color appointments and got a full head anyway with dual process costing me almost $400. With each visit there was some extra charge that I was not aware of until I paid and I walked out feeling robbed. I brought it to their attention but they never found it necessary to let me know what processes they would be charging me for. The final straw was a full head highlight job that Alma thought was so amazing. I had to go somewhere else 2 days later to get it trimmed because it was fried. The new stylist recommended a toner and said it did not appear that they put a toner on my hair which is a major screw up. I do recall when the girl put the toner on my hair, Alma rushed her and it did not stay on long. Then she put on a conditioning treatment that she immediately washed out because Alma was rushing her. The girl rinsing my hair actually seemed afraid! My highlights were orange and yellow! This cost $375. just for the color not to mention the cost of getting it corrected. My experience initially was okay but I will never return. Putting up with an arrogant stylist is not my idea of good salon experience and not something I feel good about paying that much for. There are too many other great salons in this city and talented stylist that actually listen, focus on you and leave you feeling special, and not the other way around! When I left the salon the last time, she actually said "you look great and it's all because of me"!

Not too many people can do this with the expertise that these people can.
I love Alma G Salon.
Its filled with beautiful people cutting your hair, models walking around you, and great head massages when you get your hair washed.
They cut, color, blow-dry, and make you look beautiful instantaneously...oh they do wax too...
love this place.

I was just reading the previous review and I could not help it but laugh. The reviewer talks about uneven layers, .....how about great modern stylish cuts with enough edge and sophistication to fit the spirit of NYC.
And it gets even better, the prices are a steal. After years of having to spend $300 -400 for the same quality work in the pretencious upper east side salons, I am certainly very happy to find a geam such as the Alma G Salon.

Pros: Great atmosphere and energy, fantastic results, very cordial staff, great value.

Cons: none

I went in the other day to get some layers, and walked out with a horrid haircut! Uneven!! Overpriced and they all are very pushy, whether it be their spa services or just products. never again!

After being in too many salons and not feeling comfortable in most, Alma Salon felt perfect from the moment I walked in. Everyone is very friendly and Alma is wonderful. Her cut was great as well as the styling. She's definitly a keeper!

What a gem! I get everything done here: highlights, haircut, mani, pedi, facial AND love, love the results each time. Since coming to Alma's, I receive so much more compliments on my hair, skin and nails. I'm so addicted to Alma's that I find myself going there weekly for my dose of pampering, beauty needs and maintenance. Talented, accomodating, welcoming and friendly, hip and fun staff. Ideal place to relax and unwind, have a glass of wine/martini while you beautify yourself. The search is over for the perfect place for all my beauty needs, the Alma's salon does it for me for sures :)

After years of settling for 'so so' hair at extrordinary prices, I was referred to Alma. From the minute I walked into her shop she 'got me'. Not the way the I looked, the way I could look. She suggested that I grow out my hair and lightened my ashy blond to the color I had as a child . People don't just tell me they love my hair, they tell me I look great. I have a sensational and versatile cut that always looks great and gorgeous color. I've been going to Alma for over a year and have never been happier with my hair. I've only had wonderful experiences in the salon as well. Her staff is professional but warm and friendly.

I've tried Alma G a few times with different stylists each time. Everyone I've dealt with there is condescending and just not pleasant. I agree with the previous poster who said they're too money hungry. It's overpriced for what you get and they are just desperate to add on wherever possible. Part of my beef is also that they don't really listen. I asked for no layers and the gal just stood there and looked at me, then proceeded to tell me that I needed them in a very patronizing way. I explained again that I didn't want them and had to stop her mid-cut when she went to put them in anyways. I like a hairdresser with ideas, but not people who are pushy like these folks.

I picked this salon randonly and I was very pleased. The women are so nice and even though the prices are a little high for me I was very happy with the results. I paid a little else elsewhere but these women take what they do very seriously and it shows. I had no wait and after one day with my new haircut I have already lost track of the compliments I have received. I also got a facial and a manicure since I had extra time and my skim is glowing. I would recommend this salon to friends and family.

Pros: champange, luxury, kindness

Cons: prices, add-ons

I wet to Alma Salon for a one process color. It came out way to dark w/ golden tones and I specifically told her I hate gold. I had to beg not to get a blow out because I was just going home and did not need one. She kept insisting I should get one but I had to stand my ground firmly. I would not go back to this salon, I feel they are too money hungry.

I loved this place and am going to reccomend it to all my friends. Went in for a cut and I usually let it get shaggy because getting my hair cut is usually so traumatic. I sat down, told Anthony, the stylist, what i was looking for and let him do the rest. He worked wonders. I went from college boy look to sleek and sophiscated without feeling like i looked like i was from wall street. I've been getting compliments ever since and the ladies love the do. Definitely check this place out and the people were so down to earth and not snobby which in manhattan is hard to find.

Nina listened to my every words and had great ideas for my color and hair cut.
I came away with an amazing new look.

Been twice, and both times were exemplary experiences. Both were walk-ins, the first time with a twenty minute wait, the second time perhaps five minutes. Offered my (patiently waiting) girlfriend and myself drinks, the second visit after I'd already been seated for the cut, the wait was so short. Beautiful, skillful cuts, with constant attention to any concerns on my part. My stylist, the owner, the receptionist, and, well, everyone were lovely people, and I plan on making it my go-to salon.

Simply The Best really says it all. Alma, the owner and top stylist, is absolutely incredible. She seems to have 8 hands as she is able to beautify everyone in there simultaneously. She's by far the most talented, and not to mention most beautiful, hair stylist I have ever come across. Alma turned my boring banker hair-doo into a funky, hip, cutting edge style and I've never looked better and never had so many people tell me so! I could never pay her enough. Oh, and her prices are ridiculously low for what she accomplishes, and in such a quick time frame. Now my mother, brother, 4 friends, and all their girlfriends and boyfriends go. It's the best kept secret in New York!! I doubt it'll stay that way.

Alma is the best - everytime I see her, I get the most amazing highlights and haircut! I have extremely curly hair, and have tried so many different salons in the city. This is the only one that I go back to. If you're up for a dramatic change - you can definitely trust Alma and her stylists. The atmosphere is great, and the staff is very friendly. Recommended for a younger crowd looking for a stylish, affordable haircut.
