I keep seeing 'Manhattan's Hidden Gem' or something along those lines in the reviews. I would 100% agree! I've never been more in-love with my color!

Kind of afraid to tell people about this salon since it may make it harder to get appts. But the stylists are so good that they deserve appreciation.
Salon West has a comfortable, friendly vibe. Prices are reasonable for Manhattan.
The stylists pay attention to what the clients want, not what is the latest fashion or what the stylist wants. They will spend time discussing problems or a "new look"
My daughters and I go there as we are especially happy with the way they make highlights look so natural. I had a terrific "up-do" done there for our daughter's wedding.

I'm always happy with my hair and enjoy the experience.

As a man i never felt comfortable about changing my barber. But the day I let Jennifer touch my hair I will never went back to the barbershop again. Don't think I'll ever change again. This is a salon with a touch (huge) of class.

Even though at times they can squeeze you in, if you drop by. It's best you make an appointment, It can get pretty busy.

I've been a loyal fan of Shaniqua for a few years now, both for highlighting and haircuts. She listens and has ideas, and pays incredibly close attention to the smallest of details. Everyone in there is friendly, I've never felt rushed, and I always get the appointment times I want. Far and away my favorite salon!

I finally decided to try a new place and I am so HAPPY I did. Tina, a colorist there was the most sweetest person, who really knew her craft!! I absolutely love the cut and especially my color!! The vibe is relaxing the service is great! The price aren't bad at all, I used to pay much more for less. Tina- You have a custom for life!!

I was really impressed by Salon West. The staff was well dressed, professional, knowledgeable, and prepared. My hair was badly in need of some TLC and this was just the place to get it. The colorist pocessed impeccable product knowledge and seemed up on the most current coloring techniques. I really enjoyed my time at the salon and look forward to using them in the future. I don't have to recommend them to my friends and co-workers, the color and cut are doing it for me!!

Pros: Individually Designed Hair Coloring

I had tried what seemed like EVERY salon in NYC within the first two years of living in Manhattan. Then, one day, I walked into Salon West (corner of W.85/Amsterdam) and decided to take one more chance with another salon. The prices were so much more reasonable than any salon I had previously tried and that alone was appealing to me. The salon is adorable, clean and the staff is extremely warm and friendly.
On my first visit, I got a full highlight and haircut with styling (styling included in haircut) and when I looked in the mirror when my hair was finished, I started crying,. The staff gathered around me with tissues as I explained to them that it was the best my hair had ever looked! I was so happy that I cried! My golden higlights and fabulous haircut and style made me feel beautiful again, after years of settling for less (while paying more!)
Needless to say, this was FIVE YEARS AGO and I have only used Salon West for my hilighting/hairstyling and all my hair needs from that day forward. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND SALON WEST!! Do yourself a favor and make an appointment at this wonderful Upper West Side Salon!

Cons: no cons

I have been to many of the top salons / stylists on both coasts: Dean Rhodes (inventor of DermaNew the first at home Microdermabrasion Kit), Louis Lacari (sat next to Nancy Reagan getting her hair colored ! weird!) I have had private stylists as well in Los Angeles and New York and have been a high-maintenance blonde for 20 years. When I tell you i have spent more money on my hair than it cost me to go to undergraduate school, you can believe it! My best friend suggested i go to Salon West for color one day 5 years ago, and from that visit on I knew my quest was over. the tireless professionals at Salon West transcend typical salon styling by bringing the most current style skill set with their individual artistry to the clients with grace, ease and respect. I have never seen people go above and beyond taking care of the client like they do at Salon West - so gracefully and as an ensemble, that you barely feel them working around you. Even and especially the people who wash hair...every single person there is doing the very best work possible, and with all of their heart. There is no attitude, men are as comfortable as women there..there is always laughter, joy and gentleness and quality listening. Not to mention that i am also getting a tremendous VALUE for the work that they have consistently provided for five years. Salon West, where the client truly is FIRST..

I met Jennifer the owner when she took over a little bodega that marked the begining of my new block. When she opened everybody in my building began going to her. She was new & refreshing, for most people would tell you that she had also gotten them at some time to change their styles & let her show them how great they would look. All these years later I live in kingston , upstate... & I still will drive every 6 weeks to see Jen. I love her but as well love all the people that work in her shop. Come check her out. . I could go on & on but you will never know if you do not come in.

I thought they were just trying to sell me something I did not want or need. I was growing my hair for the first time in a long time and I was starting to look like a low I.Q. Einstein. Curly in all directions, frizzy. "Get a Brazilian", one stylist urged. I thought she was a lunatic. A Brazilian? on my head? It turns out it is a keratin treatment that softens and straightens your hair. And guess what? Its wonderful. Not only does it work, it changed the way I looked. Next time one of the wonderful, beautifully trained stylists at Salon West makes a suggestion, take a moment to think about it, ask a question or two. Don't worry, they do not bite. They will answer your questions. They answered mine and made me a happier man. Thank you Salon West. Best experience I have ever had with the top of my head. Really.

Before going to Salon West I had never really done anything with my hair. I was really anxious for a change and a friend recommended me there. Everything from the beginning was just wonderful! The staff was very warm and inviting and the atmosphere was friendly and lively! I was extremely nervous about changing the color but they really listened to everything I said and made suggestions that were helpful. Nobody tried to push any products on me, they made me feel very comfortable and most importantly my hair looked fantastic! My color and cut came out amazing, my hair has never looked this good!

First off, I would like to state that I am not an employee of Salon West and my apologies for a bad attempt at an adequate review title - see above. I would simply like to relay that I think Salon West is the BEST salon in New York City on all levels: reception, timeliness, professional staff, friendliness, and excellent service. Salon West was recommended to me by 3 people before I made my first appointment with Shaniqua, whom I chose because she did my friends hair and I loved it. When I called to make an appointment, I was AMAZED at how kind, polite, and genuine the receptionist was; there was no sense that they were repeating a welcome message that had to be said upon answering the phone and I thanked them for being so nice when I came in for my appointment. Shaniqua and I got along right away, too. She was professional and fun and, most importantly, she really listened to what I wanted. She not only had an interest in making me look and feel good, but she also cared about the condition of my hair. She and the staff at Salon West create an environment that is fun and efficient where everyone works together without attitude or sense of hierarchy. I used to go to another salon and spend 5 HOURS in the chair because, inevitably, something would go wrong and we would have to reglaze or rehighlight thus wasting my day and trashing my hair. At Salon West, there are never mistakes and they know that every minute I have in precious. I went in yesterday and in 2 hours time I had a beautiful head of highlights, a cut, and a blow-dry (done by 2 people at once so that I could get out in my time frame) - THANK YOU! Finally, Salon West uses excellent hair care products. I know that some people do not like it when stylists "push" products on them HOWEVER, I'd rather have someone how knows what they're doing tell me what to use on my hair than spend hundreds of dollars on products that I will use once and hate. Salon West saves me time, money, and sanity. They're the best!

It's hard to find a non-generic beauty salon that treats you as a unique individual and not as a number. I found this small but vibrant salon walking through the neighborhood. I found it odd that the other salons in the neighborhood looked dead compared to this one, which was filled with laughter, glowing clients and this warm feeling I can't seem to find the word for. My first visit I took a plunge and decided to close my eyes and let them give me a coloring. I was blown away at how they really asked about my life, where I worked, what I liked to do and about my family. They used all of that information to guide me in choosing the appropriateness hair color and haircut for me.

I highly recommend anyone at the salon, and believe me, I've tried them all. I have never had a bad experience. I used to have great salons in the past, but after a week or two at home my hair just fell apart. Salon West educated me on my hair. I find myself now knowing which products are best to maintain the quality of my hair and what methods I can use to easily style my hair at home. They do more than do you hair, but they educate you on every important aspect of your hair that empowers you to look amazing whatever the occasion.

Salon West is a wonderful salon with highly experienced and caring staff. I have been a customer for years and my daughter, mother and sister and I have only ever had great results with the Salon West staff. Sure, they tell you about products that would work well with your hair and color but don't you want to use the best products for your hair? You are in no way obligated to buy or even hear about the products, the staff is NOT pushy at all. Everyone is friendly and really cares about your hair and you achieving a style that is complementing and appropriate for your lifestyle. I live in another sate and still cut my hair at Salon West every time I visit Manhattan.

If you are looking for a salon that has the experience, expertise and friendly atmosphere, Salon West is the place to go.

I have been a customer for years and my daughter, mother and sister and I have only ever had great results with the Salon West staff. Sure, they tell you about products that would work well with your hair and color but don't you want to use the best products for your hair? You are in no way obligated to buy or even hear about the products, the staff is NOT pushy at all. Everyone is friendly and really cares about your hair and you achieving a style that is complementing and appropriate for your lifestyle. I live in another sate and still cut my hair at Salon West every time I visit Manhattan.

If you are looking for a salon that has the experience, expertise and friendly atmosphere, Salon West is the place to go.

Pros: Excellent cuts, color and atmosphere. Convenient appt times, great neighborhood. Thorough consultations.

From the minute I walked into Salon West, I felt welcomed and relaxed by the staff. I'd naturally expect this from any salon, but the environment here was almost like a family atmosphere, completely amazing. I ended up getting more than I decided on- that tends to happen when you go to a good salon- and I felt so amazingly refreshed. The only downside is that I didn't discover this salon until 10 years after I moved here. The low advertisement of this salon means that its a hidden gem among NYC Salons.

From the colorist, to the hair stylist, to the waxing, I always felt in expert hands. I was happy not to have to constantly remind the hairstylist of what I want. Tina, who cut my hair, was such an amazing and bubbly character. You never hear anything unprofessional in this salon, and the employees have you as their number one concern.

Shaniqua, who colored my hair, made me feel comfortable enough to try a color that I never tried before, and I could not have been more pleased with the results. I applaud this salon, and their devotion to the client. They have earned a life-time customer in me.

salon west is a terrible place , in my opinion.
if you want to be pushed around , and play music chairs, this is the place to be.
If you want to pay with credit card, ( They would not take,) and when I try to pay with check, they told me to put as to cash? they pushed with products, and made me feel uncomfortable...
I seem many different people working there over the period of two years, and they never stay???
Used to be a guy from Brazil ( Alan ) , Nice Haircutter, and a very nice person ,
Alan where are you darling?

Pros: pushed with products, no sitting

Cons: , inexperienced, out of beauty school, expensive

Their colorists do an excellent job, they haircutting is subpar. They are super pushy when it comes to buying products, and it makes for a pretty uncomfortable experience.

I've been to this salon twice for color. Tina does an awesome job. My color is rich, pretty and perfect. Tina suggested that I try highlights. I'm so glad that I did. She truly seems to know how to take care of hair. My only complaint is that everyone at Salon West is too pushy about selling products and additional services. Even the woman who washed my hair asked if I'd like her to cut it. Every customer looks beautiful when they leave, though. I highly recommend this shop.

Salon West is one of the best spots on the Upper West Side! The staff is awesome and very up on current trends. They're also great at fixing hair disasters. It's a smaller salon and they're always booked so call ahead. I made the mistake once of getting in somewhere else when I couldn't get an appt and I regretted it for months. Now I wouldn't go anywhere else!
