The owner is obnoxious. I had been getting my hair cut for awhile. then Dino cut my hair in a way where it looked as if I had a tail growing out after a month. I came in and asked them to tidy it up. they tidied it up, but then after the Owner gave me a very hard time saying that I should have scheduled a full cut, even though I was on a schedule getting it done every 3-4 months. They were unwilling to fix their mistake. I even went so far to have a friend fix it and show them the photos of before and after... I recommend Peter Louis Salon at 143 east 57th... much better at fixing other people's mistakes and willing to go out of their way to care about their customers.

For nearly 20 years, I have been a devoted client and fan of Lance and Ivy. Everything about their work and place feels like a very special gift. They and the other stylists take their work and you, their client, seriously and graciously. You leave their simply and wonderfully designed space with all that a salon can do to make life better.

Lance's cuts and Ivy's color have changed with me and with what I am seeking to do in my life. Each visit provides what seems perfect, but it doesn't stop there. If the next visit calls for something different, Lance and Ivy are ready and eager to work with me to craft a hair style that helps me get where I want to go next in my life. Song's shampoos are the perfect start. They provide wonderful relaxation and sense of peace.

Lance Lappin Salon is an oasis in a busy town and it is in a wonderful part of the city. It is always a treat to get a cut and color and to just be there.

I've been a client for ten years and I love it. I followed Sandra to mid-town and I'm so glad she is back. She is a suberb colorist. Nicole cuts and styles my hair, and lets me experiment without letting me go out on too big a limb. Song's shampoos are the most relaxing ten minutes of my week.

The salon has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and yet gives up nothing to professionalism. I'm happy to be a client

Sandra at Lance Lappin Salon is amazing. I have been blonde all of my life and was considering going brunette...I was on the fence regarding this decision and consulted with Sandra about whether she thought this would be a good move for me...she talked me through it and went to the effort to find pictures of 3 different celebrities with my coloring and brown hair. With her gentle encouragement, I decided to take the plunge and am SO HAPPY that I did! She had the creative foresight to see that I would look much better as a brunette and although she never pressured me, she showed me that this would be a risk worth taking!

Sandra is now at Lance Lappin in Tribeca and I love the location - it's comfortable and sophisticated and a very nice place to spend a relaxing afternoon getting your hair done!

I have heard Lance is amazing with cuts as well and will definitely use him when I need a hair cut next!

I was thrilled when she contacted me to let me know of her move to Lance Lappin Salon in Tribeca. I would highly recommend her. She is sincere and I trust her suggestions.

Sandra has been my colorist foir several years but this was my first visit to Lance Lappin. The salon itself has an intimate and relaxed atmosphere and the decor is an eclectic mix of vintage and modern furnishings. The entire staff was very friendly, inlcuding the owner Lance Lapin who even introduced himself .

Sandra is very good at creating multi-dimensional color with minimal damage to the hair. I have fine hair and periodically like to mix up my color and Sandra has always been able to understand what I'm looking for and can create it, whether it requies baliage highlights or a gloss. Her color always looks natural, especially her highlights, and ages well.

Overall, I had a wonderful experience and would recommend this salon to anyone who wants a good salon experience and quality hair services.

Sandra is back at Lance Lappins! Sandra has been my colorist for the past five years. When she left for the Upper East Side, I followed her because she is the best! Her training and experience are exceptional. She has returned to Lance Lappin Salon and is offering INOA (Innovative No Ammonia) color by L'Oreal. My color is rich and lustrous. My hair is in better condition than ever and the color does not fade or turn brassy. I always leave her feeling years younger! The salon has such a calm and soothing effect with everyone on staff being friendly and knowledgeable. This is a wonderful salon in TriBeCa!

I have been getting my hair cut at the Lance Lapin Salon for many years. Lance Lapin cuts my hair and I am unfailingly so incredibly happy with my haircut. In the past, I would go to a hair stylist who would give me a great haircut the first 3 or 4 times and then get lazy and start giving me disappointing haircuts. It REALLY MATTERS to Lance that he give you the best haircut possible. It's a matter of professional pride for him and he really cares that you are comfortable and happy with the way you look. My hair not only looks great the day he cuts it but it grows in over time beautifully. Because of this, I don't need to go back as often as I might have to do with other stylists- my hair just keeps looking even better over time. Lance himself is such a wonderful, sincere person. He is the farthest thing from a prima donna. He's a kind, humorous, warm, caring person- each time I see him. As for the rest of the salon, all the other stylists are equally down to earth and committed to making each person leave happy with how they look. The personal attention they give you is remarkable. The salon is lovely, relaxed, beautiful and unpretentious. And it's in a wonderful, calm, interesting part of the city- Tribeca. I All I can say is- GO THERE- you'll be happy and also grateful that you read this review.

Adding to the praise of others on this site, Galina is simply the best stylist/colorist I've ever met. She listens to what you want, makes great suggestions, & works with you to make sure you are happy with the results. At 52 years old, it ain't easy to have folks go "wow" anymore, but thanks to Galina I'm getting lots of wows these days.

Very reasonably priced as well.

Because of its inviting exterior, I wandered into this Tribeca salon several years ago, looking for a good hairstylist in my neighborhood. Well, I found one. Regina is the very best colorist I've ever encountered. Perfect strangers tell me how good my hair looks after I've had Regina's highlighting. She also does a fine haircut, very precise, yet natural. As an added bonus, she's a warm and sincere person, with a good sense of humor, whom I always look forward to seeing.

The rest of the staff at Lance Lappin are cordial and welcoming. Shampoos are a real treat, with wonderful scalp massage.

Lance cuts curly hair better than anyone. Until Lance started cutting my very curly hair, every haricut appointment I ever had was fraught with pre-and post haricut anxiety. Now it's a different story. I look forward to my haircuts every single time.

And- Ivy's coloring skills for highlights and low lights are pure artistry.

Curly hair has always been challenging. I tried all the curly salons and found that they gave the same haircut to everyone who was there. I didn't like that.

I asked my friend for a referral and she gave me Lance Lappin's number. I called asking for her hairstylist. He was unavailable so I was refered to Galina. It was fate.

Galina is a superb stylist. I have gone to her at least a half dozen times and she has given me the best haircuts of my life. She understands curly hair and works with you. She will make her suggestions, but will always listen and work with your requests. Often she will offer suggestions for cuts or looks, but she never insist on her way. Galina is attentive, professional, and stylish.

Best of all, she gives you a unique look that is perfect for you. Galina specializes in helping you look your best.
I highly recommend her.

I am based out of NYC but travel for a living, and as such I often rely on redken's website to find a certified colorist wherever I am at the moment. I had to come back to the city to have some pictures taken and wanted to make sure I got a cut and color from someone excellent. After finding Lance Lappin on redken's site and reading excellent reviews on several other websites, I booked and appointment with Galina and was not disappointed. I am naturally blond but color my hair very dark and needed some natural-looking brown highlights as well. Her color was superb; nobody but my mother would know that this is not my natural hair color! The rest of the staff was very courteous and warm as well, not at all stuffy or snobby as one might expect at a NYC salon. The cut was great as well, nothing dramatic, but a good trim that has left my hair with a nice shape. I will definitely be revisiting Galina the next time I need color and a cut in the city.

The space is very attractive and modern, although they are currently undergoing renovations on their changing/color area, which meant there were some workers walking in and out during my appointment. Didn't bother me, but worth noting, I suppose.

Galina is such a treasure, I am reluctant to share her with the world. Not only is she a great haircutter, but she totally nailed the color I wanted for my hair! Just the right amount of red to warm up the tones but not so much that it looks fake! She is also a wiz at up-dos. I never thought I would find someone who can handle my super fine hair and make it look lustrious and full-bodied, but I have! Galina is a gem!

.

I went because I saw a woman in my office who has gorgeous, long hair and asked her where she gets it cut. She told me about Galina. I had waist length wavy hair that had just been completely ruined by someone. It will take a long time to fix, but Galina totally understood my hair, and made a great start. It looks good already, without having to make it too short (I had already cut two inches out myself!) I am sure she can get it back there, so confidence like that speaks for a lot. My hairs looked great that day, and has looked great every day since.

Pros: Close to my office and reasonable

I went to Lance Lappin for an up do and didn't have a lot of time. Galina came to the rescue and managed to create a beautiful "messy" bun in less than an hour! I have a lot of hair and Galina only used pins and hairspray to make the style stay together all night. It was a beautiful style and I am still amazed that it didn't take a long time.

I will definitely return for another 30-minute up do for my next fancy event!

Pros: Galina for Up Do's

Lance has been cutting my hair for years. I have always left the salon with exactly looks right for me. Because I have short hair many salons cut my hair like a boy! Lance has been really creative with ideas for different cuts and various "styling techniques" for the cut. I feel that he really listens to my ideas and is able to capture what I am looking for. His hands are magical--I know him to be a very spiritual person who sincerely cares about how I look and feel when I walk out of the salon. I recommend him very highly!

Lance Lappin provides EXACTLY what I want in a salon experience. Not only do I get a great cut and color, but the service and atmosphere makes me feel relaxed and taken care of. I really look forward to my time at the salon, which is just the way it should be. I've been a client for almost 10 years, and have never had a bad experience. I moved out of New York some time ago, but since I make frequent trips back I still wait and get my hair colored by Ivy and cut by Lance. You cannot go wrong!!!

Pros: Sarbucks nearby, great store for browsing after. Over all is a great salon.

I had been trekking uptown to a high priced salon for years and recently decided to save some time and
try a salon in my neighborhood, Lance Lappin.
I called for an appointment and was lucky to get Gina who hands down gave me the best cut I've ever had
(and she's easy on the eyes too.)

If you want a great cut in a cool environment, I'd highly recommend Gina at Lance Lappin.
Oh, and I did some Christmas shopping too - they have a great store as well.

Pros: Best Stylist

.

I was a walk in and was excited to find out they had an open appointment. Now i am wishing they didn't. This is the worst cut i have had in years! I can't believe how much I paid to have someone mutilate my hair. I think my stylist was trying to go for a layered look but it turned out choppy and uneven. Horrible!

Pros: Cute salon and shop

Cons: Horrible cut

Galina came highly recommended and I was not disappointed. She takes the time to sit down with you and pay attention to your hair type and face structure. She listens too to what it is you want to do and gives her honest opinion (it may not always be what you want to hear). Galina is extremely professional and I've had only classy, original cuts from her. I've tried many salons in the city, but find myself going back to Lance Lappin, and Galina, time and time again.

Ok - so I have been to A LOT of hair salons and I am extremely picky when it comes to my hair - who isn't right? And I must say I LOVE Lance Lappin and more importantly I LOVED the woman that cut it - Sandra. First of all, Lappin is a very warm and comfortable place with an adjoining boutique that is very cute. Sandra, who is very unassuming and very mellow put me at ease by asking me what I wanted done and how much I wanted cut. She was a good listener and she recommended a "glaze" for my hair. I am asian with black hair and lots of it! She thought the glaze would bring out the shine I had lost without adding any color and she thought it may even "hide" my few grays! This was exactly what I wanted - I didn't want color or highlights as i like my hair black but I wanted more shine and covering up a few stray grays was an added benefit of course. I have NEVER heard of this "glaze" technique and... I LOVED IT !!!!! Not only was my hair nice and shiny it also seemed to seal in moisture! I am so happy with this glaze that I am planning on getting it again when Sandra recommends it - forgot to ask her when I will be due another "glaze." Now let's talk about my haircut -- let's just say when I got home my husband noticed it and he said I looked like the woman he met 18 years ago. Not bad right? So I HIGHLY recommend Sandra --- she has been the best I have had in years. And if you're an Asian woman -- ask her about the "glaze!" :)

Pros: great service, location, atmosphere, sandra!

Cons: chairs that are used to wash your hair - not that comfortable! But retro!

Hey! I just found out that Fran (mentioned below) is now cutting hair at Riccardo Maggiore Salon in New York. I missed her at the salon, and am glad to find her still in New York. Lappin is great, but Fran was a real treat.

My stylist Galina is terrific - great colorist, great highlights and always a great cut and I would very highly recommend her to anyone.

The one thing I HATE about the shop is the shampoo chairs! They look cool (grey leather armchairs) but they don't recline. If you're reatively short you sit on an extra cushion and have to tilt your head back at a very uncomfortable angle without any back support. Every other hair salon I've been to makes the shampoo a relaxing and soothing experience. At Lance Lappin I just want to get it over with quickly to try to avoid the stiff neck those chairs create.

Pros: Great color and cut from Galina

Cons: SHAMPOO CHAIRS are horribly uncomfortable
