The green tea to start, the friendly staff, the great hair cut and the low prices make an unbeatable combination.

Pros: Love my hair and the stylist was terrific

Cons: None

The Parlor is a wonderful place I heard about through a friend at work. I went in for a color consult, and walked out looking magnificent! I was devastated when I heard abut his departure, and it took me a week of calling around to try and find him, there are a lot of salons in NY....
If you are curious about parlor, I would give it two thumbs up as a salon, even though the "highlight" for me is now gone. If you also used to see Hayden, I tracked him down at Salon Berardinis on 7th ave, I was glad to have found him I never had such a natural look to my highlights.

Pros: lovely enviornment and professional staff

I am so glad I found my colorist, Hayden Kings. So glad to see him again, he recently moved to a new Chelsea location: De Berardinis at 155 W 21 Street, Ph. (212) 967-0927. And they are open on Sundays, so convenient!!

I visited Parlor last winter for a single process with Gwen. After years with a colorist on Long Island, I figured it was high time that I actually get my hair colored by someone closer to home. Due to nerves, I figured my best bet was to book with the owner, since she's been in the business for years and, naturally, would be good at what she does. Gwen was such a sweetheart - really knowledgeable, offered me wine, which was AWESOME, and her assistant was a really nice guy. But overall, my service was just okay. The space is nice, the people are nice, but my hair turned out much darker than I wanted, I was not offered a glaze (which I think is key), and the blowdry the assistant gave me was atrocious. I decided not to go back mostly because I can't afford to pay extra $$ to have my color done by the owner, but also because I don't like the idea of an assistant doing my blowout and my colorist shuttling back and forth between clients. I wouldn't discourage others from coming here - they are such nice people and clearly passionate about what they do - I guess it just wasn't the place for me.

Pros: Warm, welcoming salon.

Cons: A bit pricey; service not as fantastic as I had hoped for.

the stylists are great at this place, and they always do a phenomenal job. however, the manager is an absolute dbag that takes himself so seriously. he dresses like a chump, and has no manners whatsoever. the guy is such a loser and it boggles my mind that the owner hired someone with no manners. all this being said, the rest of the place and staff is great.

I didn't believe it was possible that the karma at Parlor could improve but in the past couple weeks every time I walk by that place it glows! Awesome service, top shelf service, attention to detail and the stylists and owner are the cream of the crop. Be gone bad energy!

I too have been going to Parlor for several years and seeing Tina and so was baffled when I heard she was no longer there, and even more baffled by the post by the owner. For those who've been going to Tina, you'll remember she was promoted two or three times while working there, so it's a shame to see the owner disparage her now that she has left. Thank you for letting Tina fans know she is now at Soon Salon. I'll be calling right away.

My name is Erin Lucas and both me and my best friend Brooke Sherman have been clients of Tina F's for two years at Parlor. I was called by Parlor to let me know she had left and that would I like to reschedule my May 29th apt with Boswell or Katia. I love Palor for the ambience and because they use Aveda products but mainly for my stylist Tina F. I have fine curly hair and after visiting Tina I now know the value of a great cut. My friend Brooke Sherman who introduced me to Parlor and Tina has short hair and usually opts for something cutting edge/modern,while I opt for a more classic cut. Our hair may be very different but we both get amazing cuts. Parlor they did not tell me where Tina had gone but instead recomended Boswell or Katia. I have had Katia highlight my hair once before and she did a great job but I will stick with my usual stylist for my cut. By luck or by fate I ran into Tina F on W22nd st when I popped into Soon Salon for a blowout. She is now working there and I can't believe I found her. My husband think I am crazy when it comes to my hair but the man shaves his head. Anyway I just wanted to let other Tina Fans know and I was very disapointed by the disparaging remarks made by Parlor owner Gwenn below. It is very unfortunate and unprofessional. She claims Tina posed as Jenny so that is why I am using my actual name and Brooke's as we are listed in the Parlor database and are actual clients. Anyway Tina is great and I am glad to have found her at Soon Salon on W 22nd St between 5th and 6th Ave. Parlor is a great salon but I will now be following Tina wherever she goes!

I don't understand what's going on here with the Tina comments. I went to her because she was the stylist of a friend who always looks great. Tina cut my hair twice and I was very happy with the results. In fact, just today I tried to make another appointment and learned she'd left Parlor. The receptionist said he didn't know where she'd gone, but if anyone does, perhaps you could post the information here?

I have over the years always seeked to hire talent and passion. There are only a few things more important to me at PARLOR than to be with people that have integrity and positive energy. It is embarrassing to be pulled down to such a petty level but the previous fake review (one of many sad to say) , via jenny (TINA incognito) is one of the many reasons she is no longer with Parlor. Tina made a habit of writing her own praises and it is too bad that CITYSEARCH can be manipulated in such a way.
As many of Parlor?s clients know we attract and retain ONLY the cream of the crop.

My stylist Tina left Parlor and I have no contact info for her! I just had my hair done at Parlor from a new stylist "J" and it is by far the worste "hair" ever, he is apparently Tina's replacement. But I just wanted to warn the rest of Tina's clients, DO NOT see him!! It is horrible., NOW I am in desperate need of a TINA FIX and reaching out to citysearch to find her, If any of her clients reads this and knows where she is please contact me at Jdana90@lives . Needless to say I wont ever go back to Parlor, This Place isn't the same without her!!!! She is one of a kind, a truely great stylist. Please Help! JD.

I just saw J. Arrin for my color and cut, and he was simply amazing. From his firm handshake to his gentle manner, I knew that I would receive the kind of service I deserve. I wanted to go from dark brown to a lighter brown, but was afraid of looking garish. The end result was stunning. He walked me through the process, recommended products that ensure a long-lasting color, and even sent me a thank-you note! I will refer all of my friends to J. Arrin. And as for the salon itself, it feels so...warm. All the employees look happy to be there and even the manager at the front desk greeted me with a smile. I do not know who JenD from the previous review saw or where she went, but it was NOT Parlor and she must not have seen my new stylist-for-life, J. Arrin.

Pros: Lovely space, lovely technician, even lovelier red wine!

I had my hair cut my Kat on the Monday prior to my 1/2 head of highlights with Michael and I walked away from both appointments completely satisfied. Kat gave me a the low maintainence, flattering cut that I have searched for most of my life. My hair, totally virginal after not having been dyed for 7 years, looks awesome after Michael meticulously spent over two hours painstakingly selecting strategic strands to highlight. I could not be more satisified! Props to both of them and parlor for their great hair modeling deal.

I'm terrified of having my hair cut and rarely venture to a new place. After a few months of looking like a victim of electrocution I decided it was time. I have curly big hair, and have had one haircut that I loved but at a place that was way overpriced and out of the way. I needed a cut but also wanted to stay in my neighborhood and not spend half my paycheck. I had passed Parlour a few times always curious. I read all these reviews on citysearch, and it seemed suspicious a little how many people championed Tina, but I thought I'd give her a shot and I'm soooo happy I did. She listened to what I wanted, and I felt comfortable and I will definitely be going back to her. Gave me a great haircut and was easygoing and funny. Everyone there was really nice and cool, not snobby or intimidating like a certain meatpacking salon I once went to. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes a low-key salon with good taste and talented cutters, and the aveda products smell really good and their tea is yummy.

First time at Parlor. Asked, via e-mail, if they had anyone who was good with fine thin hair. (My hair used to be thick and wavy and since it has changed in recent years, I had been having trouble finding someone who could give me a good haircut...shaggy, layered, with as much volume and curl as possible.)They suggested 2 of their stylists and I called and made an appointment with Boswell. Nothing short of great! He is a really good listener, knew what I wanted and gave me a fabulous haircut. I am going back next time for color and never plan to leave. :-) The shop is very pleasant and comfortable. The fees are explained up front and are reasonable. Very happy to have found him and them.

(drumroll) this is my first online review ever....and that alone should tell you something! I went into Parlor, knowing nothing, other than I needed a haircut and my friend was going. I went to Tina, knowing nothing, other than what the Parlor website told me (by the way, excellently designed website!!) What can I say? Definitely not enough. I looked at Tina and told her to "keep the length and bring in the ...exy." vague instructions for a sylist and when she would attempt to elicit more comments and instructions i would just say: "use your hair artist skills." she did and my hair looks fantastic! i have curly hair, i've had it short, long, layered, unlayered, angled - you name it , i've done it. i thought i couldn't do anything new with a cut, but alas, Tina did it. I told her to bring ...exy back, and she did. Go Tina!

Being a redhead on a budget in New York is a nightmare...the color fades and upkeep's a fortune. And if you do it yourself? When you finally get to a salon for "professional help," you're made to feel like you have two left hands.

And then...you find that perfect little salon, with warm friendly atmosphere and VERY talented stylists. Cynical little me jumped into student stylist Michael's chair and left a few hours later with the prettiest shade of red (somewhere between chestnut and auburn), perfectly even all over, looking healthy and shiny. On his advice, I also purchased a bottle of the color-depositing Aveda conditioner, which he mixed up to match my new shade and it was the BEST thing I have done for my hair. It has been almost 7 weeks since my visit to Parlor and the roots aren't too noticeable, the fading is minimal...a miracle as I normally look totally faded within a month.

I'm heading back for a touch up in a few weeks and this time, I plan on taking the plunge and letting the Parlor princes and princesses handle my cutting needs as well (I haven't cut my hair in a year and half and needs some shape). From the reviews on here, it seems that Tina may be the stylist for me!

I have been a client of Parlor for 2 years. I fell into Tina's lap after my first stylist had to cancel an appointment, and I've been Tina's ever since! She listens more than any stylist I've worked with and won't let me leave until I'm 110% satisfied. She makes me feel beautiful and has become a true friend that I look forward to seeing at the salon. We talk through all the changes I want to make, and I'm not afraid to take risks because if they don't turn out, she fixes them. I don't expect perfection from a stylist--I understand that hair is a tricky thing and achieving a certain look isn't always possible, but Tina works harder toward perfection than any other stylist I've met. That's what's important--I know that she is working her butt off to get me exactly what I want and it's almost always perfect!

I honestly don't have enough good things to say about her. She's a total angel.

Last week I had my cut & color with Boswell @ Parlor, I had the most pleasant salon experience ever. From the moment I stepped into Parlor I was 200% customer serviced from the straight fashion forward approach from Boswell, to his perfection in my most hip haircut to wine and the friendliest staff. I love this cute, cozy, hip salon, where my stylist took time to understand what i had in mind and added his expertise. I can't recommend Parlor enough! It's a great salon plus Aveda products.

Years ago, I sat in as a model for a teaching day at Parlor and had my haircut for free by Gwen. I had endless conditions, and every one was met even though I wasn't paying a cent, a testament to Gwen's devotion to her art. When I needed my hair cut just right for my wedding, I remembered that haircut, and knew immediately who to call. It came out perfect, just the right length so that it fell along the neckline of my gown, and all that based solely on a sketch and some careful listening on Gwen's part. Best salon in the city. Can't recommend it enough.

The space is limited but it feels "cozy", they offer you water, iced tea (delicious), or iced coffee upon arrival. It smells awesome of course; love that Aveda scent! Tina welcomed me and made me feel comfortable - we sat at her station to discuss my hair, my thoughts on cut and possible color at some point. The shampoo was delightful "Shampure" with a head massage to boot. Tina cut a bit with my hair wet, dried it, and used the "foam" (which I bought and like a lot), and then cut more, making sure the length of my layers and ends were as expected.

Overall, a great haircut and nice staff and well I now have a new stylist - and I am thrilled about it.

I highly recommend Parlor and next time I think I will be braver and do something a bit more "risky" with cut AND color...what the heck, I live in NYC, right?

I'm a happy girl!

I've never left a review before but I felt compelled to leave one this time. The first time I went to Parlor I saw Gwen and my experience was OK. I was wearing my hair straight at the time and although she did not do a horrible job on my hair, it was nothing spectacular, boring and bland. I've been to Tina 2 times and this is when I decided to work with my natural, wavy hair. The last time I went to see her I tried my best to describe what I wanted and I was pretty clear about it. Unfortunately I was not happy with the cut. My hair still looked heavy and all one length and it was not what I wanted. I've never called a salon to go back for a recut but I did it this time and it was a HUGE mistake. She started to cut my hair dry(mistake) and now it looks choppy, fluffy and I can't control it, it's a nightmare. I hope that people with curly and wavy hair go to this salon with caution. I now have to wait months for my hair to grow out and find another salon that I can trust, which is difficult. I originally chose this salon because they use Aveda products, that's really what motivated me to go there. Just beware wavy/curly haired girls!

I've never left a review before but I felt compelled to leave one this time. The first time I went to Parlor I saw Gwen and my experience was OK. I was wearing my hair straight at the time and although she did not do a horrible job on my hair, it was nothing spectacular, boring and bland. I've been to Tina 2 times and this is when I decided to work with my natural, wavy hair. The last time I went to see her I tried my best to describe what I wanted and I was pretty clear about it. Unfortunately I was not happy with the cut. My hair still looked heavy and all one length and it was not what I wanted.

I came to Gwen, Parlor's owner, after experiencing a horrendous cut from another high-end salon in the city. Gwen was just incredible...she really listened to my concerns and analyzed what need to be done going foward in order to put my haircut on the road to recovery. Her technical skills and her warm, understanding demeanor where unbelievably helpful and I'm very grateful. I've previously been to Gina as well who's also fantastic! THANK YOU GWEN...I'll see you in 6 weeks!!

This time last week I had hair that was dark on the ends and reddish on the roots - the result of a few years of using home-dye kits. I hated it, but had been told by quite a few hairdressers that it wasn't possible to lighten and even out my hair - the best they could offer was highlights, which I knew would look terrible on the uneven base - so I never did it. And then I met Tina from Parlor!

She did a color correction for me, with fabulous results. I now have a warm medium brown, perfectly even hair color, and am thrilled. She took time to speak to me about the process, making sure of what I wanted, talked me through the process, and was lovely company throughout.

Thank you Tina!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tina and parlor to anyone.

i have had a few bad experiences at salons so this time I really did my due diligence. I researched and researched a place that would not only give me a great haircut but who would teach me how to manage it and basically hold my hand the entire time. Sarah did exactly that. Sarah and I talked about different styles, made some recommendations and then we both chose a fitting style. The entire time, she made sure i was comfortable and talked me through process the entire time. Afterwards, she taught me how to style it and some helpful tips that I use everyday - she is a MIRACLE!!! I will be a customer for life!
Thank you, thank you , thank you!!!!

I knew my experience at Parlor would be great based on reviews. Tina, my stylist, was wonderful and really listened to what I wanted. I have long, difficult, thick hair, which I wanted colored (dark) and layered. Tina asked me some very specific questions about what I wanted and didn't want, and my hair couldn't have turned out more lovely. It was hard to believe it was my hair! I definitely recommend coming to Tina with some idea of what you want, but give her some leeway because she makes good suggestions.

Tina Frauenhuber gives me fantastic haircuts. I've been going to her for about 2 years and she is consistently keeping me happy. I am a musician and I'm always changing my mind about what I want to do with my hair. Tina is never afraid to try new things and she always makes me look like a rockstar! She's so creative and very good at giving me what I want - it's great to have a hairdresser who is really more of a hair artist - she's so skilled I know I can always trust her to do a beautiful job. Plus, she's very entertaining, which keeps the hair sessions fun.

I found Parlor by accident in a quest for a great colour and cut that would fit my student (read: tiny) budget. I have never looked back! I've had cuts by Katya and Carrie and colour by Katya. I couldn't recommend them more. They listen to what you want, go through endless pictures with you and actually deliver exactly what you asked for. I live in London but every time I'm in NYC, one of the first things I do is get myself to Parlor.

Bravo! Creative style and great hair products. I have recommended several friends and they gave it rave reviews. It's worth the commute. Christina has great vision and concentration. She turned my shaggy do to a clean, easy to manage haircut. I trust my hair to her creativie hands.

i had been seeing the same stylist for about 4 years when i realized that we just weren't communicating well anymore. i kept walking out of my salon with the same hairstyle despite any attempt on my part to steer toward a change. i went to see rachel banks at parlour because a friend of mie with similar hair had been going to her and her hair always looked impeccable. it was hard to commit to seeing somebody new after a 4-year relationship (i sound like i'm talking about dating, i know) with my old stylist but i am SO happy i took the leap. first of all, she is a technical perfectionist. that is to say she consults with you, listens to you, offers suggestions and ideas, studies your hair, and takes her time with the actual cut. i felt like a new person when i walked out f the salon, it was a change i should have made at least a year ago. i highly recommend parlour (it's got a great vibe and is so cute) but i fully and completely endorse rachel. she's got the skills and a wonderful personality to match. an absolute pleasure.

It wasn't until I went to Tina when I realized my hair could be the way I wanted it to be. Tina is a great person, fun to talk to, and when I tell her what I want she listens and gives me the cut I ask for. At the same time she applies her knowledge to improve the cut. I love going to Tina knowing I'll get what I want and that my hair will look good. There are no surprises. She makes it clear what she's about to do, makes sure you like it too, and always does a great job- with both cut and color.

I have been going to Parlor for over a year now. I have tried pretty much every midclass/ upscale Salon in Manhattan and finally found what I was looking for. Tina Frauenhuber is my colorist and stylist at Parlor and does the most amazing color aswell style. She is extremely professional and accomodating. Some of the other features that I love about the salon is that they do not charge extra to dry and style your hair which is so nice. The prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is very relaxing. If you are in search of a new stylist I would definitely recommend you check out Tina's work.

Just got my hair cut here by Tina, and it is the worst haircut I've had in many years. I asked for a trim with layers in the front. The layers go to the back of my head, and she cut off much more than what I'd asked for. She basically did what she wanted, i.e. her own style, and I hate it. both sides aren't even the same length. Now I'm going to have to wait at least a year until it grows out.

It is not expensive for a reason.

If you want Brassy, Orange hair, this is the place for you! I lived in the EV and had no idea where to go, I randomly chose Parlor after walking by because it looked cute inside. After working in a hair salon myself in Maryland, I know what looks good and what doesnt. I told the lady exactly what kind of hilites I wanted. @ hours later I was so disapointed, but was too nice to say anything. My hilites were ORANGE and brassy. Needless to say I will never go back. I found a much better place called Arena on Orchard Street. They do the most AMAZING job. I would definitely recommend spending your money there instead!

Parlor is unpretentious and charming, a treat for anyone who has endured the New York salon saga: If you're searching for a new salon because if you dread even calling your current salon or feel panicky when you go in because its had been so long since your last cut/color that every day is a bad hair day and where they make you feel like a slob if its been more than 3 months since your last cut/color, then as long as you don't care what your hair actually looks like, look no further than Parlor.
The woman who did my color was cute and kind. The woman who cut my hair was pleasant. Unfortunately, neither one listened to what I asked for, which was not complicated: extremely natural color - no chunks, my hair around or at the bottom of my shoulder blades, a low maintenance cut that would not require a daily production with appliances or products because I let my hair air dry, a few layers around my face but no more so I can easily pull it back. I realize I may sound fussy, but I really am not. I trust them to know what will be flattering (this is, after all, their job) and rely on their judgment, so as along as the color looks natural, my hair can air-dry and be easily pulled back. I left Parlor with chunky highlights, hair above my shoulders and so many layers when I let my hair air dry it looked like bedhead; I needed at least two barrettes plus a hair tie to put my hair back.
A few months later, I returned to the pretentious, arrogant Midtown salon where I pay close to $600 for a cut and full highlights and for stylists who listen to me and for hair that compliments my face as well as my life. The at Parlor for the same services (cut and full highlights) was about half that, around $300 and Parlor is charming and unpretentious, which is refreshing, but they don?t listen, which is a problem. Perhaps the talented staff at Parlor would consider a client's requests for an extra $300, which seems to be the going rate in Midtown for listening to the needs of clients

My first time at this salon. Friendly service etc but extremely disappointed with haircut. The cut is exactly what I DID NOT want. I had long wavy/curly hair way past the middle of my back and I wanted some layers to make my life a little easier. I think the stylist and I must have been speaking two entirely different languages: In her world 4 inches means 8 and she thinks that blow-drying curly hair straight to cut will automatically lead to desired result...When I expressed my concern that the cut would look different when I let it dry naturally-- I had NO intention of drying it straight everyday--- she reassured me that if I was unhappy I should call. The next day I washed it and let it dry naturally but it is cut in such thick, short and awkward layers that it just doesn't fall right. It looks to me like a 60's bouffant. Well, when I did call, lo and behold, she could not fit me in that week! I have been waiting for the cut to grow on me or to see that I just might not be styling it right but it is just wrong, wrong, wrong. The stylist claimed to be good with curly hair-- that is if you want to wear it straight. I am writing this because I hope another unsuspecting person who looks this salon up on city search is not swayed by the overall good reviews like I was...If you have long or curly hair-- STAY AWAY.

If there was one place I could recommend to any New Yorker or tourist, I'd recommended "Parlor". The atmosphere speaks of a place that will pamper you and lavish you in beauty and comfort. The personnel at "Parlor" alone would convince me to go again and again. The stylists are not interested in you as their client but, first and foremost, they are interested in you as the person. And that is what makes me rave to all my friends about the stylists at "Parlor".

Among the many fabulous stylists to choose from, I settled on Hayden. My nickname to him is "devil hands" because he must have sold his soul to the devil to possess such amazing skills that are manipulated by his "devil hands". One time, I remember telling him I was interested in a hair makeover. He came up with a game plan, reviewed it with me, and with my approval, he went forth with his vision. Hayden makes it so easy for me to trust him with my hair because he sees hair as an artform that is embodied by the unique qualities of a person. I highly recommend my stylist to anyone who is looking to enhance their look or redefine themselves.

It was my first time at Parlor (co-worker of mine recommended Tina) and I just had to write a few words about my stylist Tina. A long story short, I got my color & cut done, brought in pictures and Tina listened and advised with her expertise. I got exactly what I asked for, plus her creative touch as a little extra. Tina is a stylist that listens to you very well and is very concerned about your comfort level and how u feel about your new head of hair. As I left she told me the door @ Parlor is always open if I had any questions (about my new hair) and to call her anytime. So a couple days passed and I had a change a mind about my hair color, I called and Tina saw me again, we redid my hair color and now its the absolute Best Hair I had my whole life. WHAT I'm trying to bring across is that I felt very well taken care off, even after my change of mind, treated with courtesy and professionalism. I really appreciated Tina taking time to see me again and make me even more beautiful. I will be a client @ Parlor for ever now. She has a very positive sweet attitude about her. Thank you again. Dea.

Another fantastic job on my highlights by Tina. I have been going to her for a year and have always been extememly satisfied. Not only does Tina do a great job with the color, she also gives me the best haircut I have had in years. She does exactly what I want and if I ask for her advice she is honest and helpful. I trust that I will walk out of Parlor looking the best I can. I can't imagine going to anyone else and I highly reccommend that you give her a chance to make your hair look fabulous.

I've been going to Parlor off and on now for 4 years. Its definitely a trip downtown for me to get there but I do like the friendly staff, no-attitude vibe of the place. Leah is doing my color these days and has thankfully eliminated past color job problems (done by other hairstylists who were friends of friends). Bettina cut my hair and this is the first time I've had her and i LOVE IT! She really took the time to get my hair into the shape I wanted and also provided her opinion and together it came out exactly what I wanted. Also the Aveda hair potion she recommended is FABULOUS for giving lift to my fine hair.

I just received the best cut from Tina. I would highly recommend her. She takes care to give you the best cut possible and pays attention to detail. The cut she gave me was the best I've had in years and will definitely be going back to her. She was very sweet and explained to me exactly what she would do and then did it. No funky surprises or chunks of hair flying off. I wanted to keep my length and she managed to leave it, while really giving me a new 'do and totally reshaping my hair and giving it a great style. The salon is really nice and relaxing and they offer a nice glass of wine to enjoy while you have your service done. The cut was so nice that 2 people asked me where I get my hair done on the way home. I can't wait to go back.

I was pretty amazed, at a newcomer stylist by the name of Tina. Not only did she give me a nice Chic cut but got the coloring just right for me! To boot, I got a nice massage while my hair was being dyed!
Wow, I could have melted, that was a very nice touch! Kudos!

I was pretty amazed, at a newcomer stylist by the name of Tina. Not only did she give me a nice Chic cut but got the coloring just right for me! To boot, I got a nice massage while my hair was being dyed!
Wow, I could have melted, that was a very nice touch! Kudos!

Thankfully out amongst all the many salons in my neighborhood there is Parlor! I had taken my Single process into my own hands to save a few bucks!(Take it from me! Don't do this unless you know exactly what you are doing!)Thankfully when I called frantic, embarrassed, and desperate I was booked with Hayden for a color correction. I had seen Leah a wonderful colorist there before, but it was her day off and I couldn't bare to wait. Well now I know Parlor just has a great staff! Because Hayden was meticulous, efficient and didn't take advantage of my dilemma! He fixed it and I am once again a happy redhead:) I am so thankful to be close to a great salon that does fabulous work, with out the I am so fabulous attitude!Thank you Parlor!!

This highly talented stylist Tina gave me the Best Salon exp. I ever had in NYC, from my great head a high lites to my new cut. (My visit at Parlor was just about me, Tina spoiled me from face mask to hand treatment, and educated me about my hair and skin/ make up) I really never exp. such a positive salon exp. I received exceptional good service from Tina she is very sweet and talented. I want the city to know about Parlor and Tina because we all need this couple a hours that make us glow again.

Perhaps I was expecting too much of Parlor after reading the gushing Citysearch reviews. I certainly was not expecting a triple-booked colorist who simply decided to glaze over my highlights and lowlights. The stylist, despite her credentails, appeared to be incapable of assessing the texture of my hair and lacked the proper tools to style it (i.e. a round natural-bristle brush and straightener with multiple heat settings). Her recommendations were inappropriate and lack of vision readily apparent. Although I admit, it must take some kind of talent to mangle a blunt cut. Expect nothing less than discourteous behavior from the receptionist, and prepare to have a front row view of the storeroom with its haphazard array of color bottles as you are shampooed. Needless to say, this is the first time I have recieved more compliments on my hair walking into a salon than walking out. I will not be returning.

It is pretty amazing what a good hair cut can do to your confidence. I just went for the first time to Parlor and saw Tina she gave me without any question the best haircut I ever had, my hair looked great when I left the salon but more important I can style my hair myself and look like I just came from a salon. I really enjoyed how my stylist Tina payed attention to ME, from the consultation to the finish style/ product advice Tina had it all covered. Now I walk the streets of New York with a great head a hair and it really reflects ME. Thank you so much Tina, I really love my hair, Marie.

Pros: A good hair day every day with my cut from Tina.

Cons: far from subway.
