I just moved to the area & was relying on internet reviews to find a salon- this was a mistake! You have to find someone with a good haircut and go with a personal recommendation. I think some of these reviews are planted.\r

SO i just got my hair cut here for the first time today, i used to go home where i live with my mom upstate but i just couldnt wait till thanksgiving to go and get another cut since i have short hair. I asked around to see which places were good and i heard about this place and only got good reviews for it. I went for my apt today and i am in love with my hair cut Beth is amazing and i will continue to come here. It was great everyone was very nice and i got a cut even better than i was expecting! i will be recommending this place to everyone i know, its also not really expensive which makes it even better!

This place is amazing. I look forward to my appointment every 8-9 weeks because I know I can put myself in Sean's hands and relax. They are totally professional yet amazingly kind and caring. Every customer is treated as tho they are the ONLY one! I have been going to Shapers for at least 10 years and I even tho I moved out of the area I still drive back. My daughter is a loyal customer as well and she drives from Albany for her appointments!You can't give up someone you trust with your hair! I love them all! How come there isn't a 10 star rating?
P.S. regarding "The lady" who is unhappy because she was allegedly told they closed at 3 when she had a 2:30 appointment.....hmmmm....I would have told her that too, just to get her out of there. No pleasing some people! :))

In 1997 I decided to save money and color my hair at home. It wasn't what I wanted and so I went to a salon in Wallkill to fix the color - only to have them make it horribly worse. A friend suggested Shapers and I made an appointment. I brought in a picture of my hair before the color botch, and in 3 hours, with the combined efforts of Shawn, Kelly, and Lynn, my color was EXACTLY how it was before I messed it all up. SHAPERS has had my business ever since. They incredibly friendly, personable, and professional....and most importantly, they do a fantastic job. I normally have my hair done by Shawn or Beth.....both are just fabulous.
The person who left a negative review must have been confused with another salon in New Paltz. Shapers is by far, the best place I've gone to in the valley.

I have been with Shaper's since 1993 before Sean and Kelly moved to their currnet location in downtown New Paltz. It was my luck that at the time Shaper's residence was just over a mile down the road of our new puchased home. I needed hair help, and they welcomed me!
It is one thing to be able to cut hair. Shaper's does it 5 Star. It is another thing to be able to color hair. Shaper's does it 5 Star. It is another thing to correct hair. Shaper's does it 5 Star. I could go on, but the best thing the folk's at Shaper's do is listen to their clients and work with their concerns and help their clients have the best hair etc. and the best experience for their needs. And the products used are nourishing for hair always!
Another love for having my hair done at Shaper's is the relaxation .... if I am feeling animated OK if I feel like being quitet OK. I just love being ... at Shaper's ... it is warm like being Home.

I would not continue to trust my hair for 17 years to Shapers If I did not believe in the products used and how they use them.

I have been going to Shapers for over 10 years and I love the salon and staff! I receive many compliments on my hair and recommend them all the time - we are so lucky to have such professional, well-trained folks in New Paltz. After I discovered Shapers I stopped trekking to the city for my hair appointments.

I've been a Shapers' client for over 16 years. I've never known the staff to be anything but completely professional. I am sad to read the post below, particularly because the writer did not offer the owner the same dignified treatment that she thought the employee deserved. Clearly some things should be handled discreetly...and everyone has experienced a lapse in judgment.
I will continue to show my loyalty to Shapers, as I am completely convinced that there is no better service to be had in the Hudson Valley.

Awesome experience... Shapers is definitely the number one salon in the Hudson Valley! the staff is incredible, I initially started going to Shapers for my haircuts and one day decided to get a manicure and pedicure... Jessica is such a delight, she pays attention to detail, is extremely sanitary and truly enjoys what she does. I would recommend Shapers to everyone, not just for fantastic haircuts but for the BEST manicure and pedicure you'll ever have!

I originally went to Shapers to have them fix a botched haircut from another salon. They did such an incredible job that I haven't gone anywhere else since. When I moved from Manhattan to the country, my fear was that I would be unable to find a salon able to give a quality cut and color that I had become used to in Manhattan. Beth has been cutting and coloring my hair for a few years now, and she has proven to be better than anyone else who has ever done my hair. Beth has carte blanche and never disappoints!

I have been a loyal Shapers client for over 20 years. Owners Sean and Kelly and their entire staff work together to create an atmosphere that has become a haven for this full-time mother of two. The level of professionalism, knowledge, and artistic capabilities is nothing short of spectacular. Check out Shapers. You won??t regret it.

I couldn't be happier with my experience at Shapers! I've been to MANY salons and have never left feeling completely satisfied until now. I have very curly, unruly hair and noone ever knows how to cut and style my hair...until now. So happy I decided to try this place!

Spring Fever hit on April 23rd when I decided to go to Shapers for a color & cut. The whole experience was wonderful. I was welcomed and made to feel at ease the second I walked through the door. They should have done before and after pictures. The colorist, Lynn, came up with the perfect, natural looking color. Kiki cut my hair in a style that I'd often thought about but never tried and I love it. I am so glad I said "whatever you think" to the two of them. I was in the mood for a makeover and I walked out of the salon feeling like my best "me". Kayla waxed my eyebrows and washed and combed through my hair. She was delightful and really added to my few hours of pampering. This was the first salon I had tried in the area since moving and I won't be going anywhere else!

I recently went to Shapers for the first time and let me just start off by saying they're awesome. I can't understand how the people who gave negative reviews could have went to the same place I went to.

I went there wanting to make a change with my hair but not being too sure about what I wanted and feeling a little nervous about doing something different but Kelly and the staff made me feel very welcome and at ease. I can tell that everyone there really cares about and enjoys what they do because the place had a very pleasant atmosphere. Kelly is such a nice, thoughtful person. Other than giving me a great hairstyle, she made me feel even better about the whole experience by asking if I wanted to donate the hair she was going to cut off to Locks of Love. Something that I never thought about but am very glad I did.

I can't say enough how happy I am with the haircut I received. I got tons of complements from people at work and I work in Technology Support so getting the bunch of guys I work with to make a big deal about hair is something. There's no doubt in my mind that I'm going to go back to Shapers again.

I used to live in NYC where I often got snotty treatment and overpriced haircuts that I was happy with only half of the time. Shapers is full of extremely friendly, extremely talented people. I pay less than I did in the city and my hair always looks fantastic. The atmosphere is so friendly that for once in my life I do not have to feel intimidated (which was common for me) to say what I want. Sometimes, I let my Shapers person suggest ideas and I feel like I am a Hollywood star with my own personal stylist. Anyone who ever had a bad experience at Shapers is clearly unhappy with who they are and no hairdresser can fix that.

When I moved here in 1991, I discovered Shapers. I have been a loyal patron since! The atmosphere is friendly, relaxed and the staff is professional. The staff stays current with trends, attending workshops etc. on a regular basis. I am especially fond of the great pedicure's I get from Jesse, and the waxing from Kristin. Erin, as the face of Shapers is always welcoming, positive and attentive. Shapers is a thriving salon, very busy, and there can always be some mishap as humans, but they work to make it right! When I had a car breakdown, and showed up 30 min late, although it threw a monkey wrench into their tight schedules, they made it work. So imagine if 2 or 3 clients do that in a day, well, I suspect it throws off everyone's schedule a bit and hope all are gracious enough about it. Frankly, Kelly is an extraordinary colorist; she is gifted and she cuts to 'form', which is great because we are all different. I gave up bringing in pictures of how I wanted my hair to be cut because too often I didn't have the right hair type for the cut or it wouldn't look right my face! So, I highly recommend Shapers, I feel they are quite selective about who works there and beieive they are all excellent hairstylists.

I went to shapers for a hair cut on November 11th. I was given a 2:30 appt. When I got there, I was made to wait for about 10 minutes, and then got washed and sent up to get my hair cut. I think the woman who cut my hair was named Debbie or Danielle. Anyway, after I told her the hair cut I wanted, she ignored my request and proceeded to cut my hair exactly like hers (and the client before me), told me they close at 3 PM, didn't offer to blow dry my hair, and then put some gunky product in my hair which means I had to wash it again right away. And I had to pay $33 for a Jennifer Aniston hair cut from five years ago. All in all, it was a bad experience and I won't go back. If they close at 3, they shouldn't be giving out appointments for 2:30 and what a bad haircut.

PROS: The trees outside are pretty with the christmas lights.
CONS: Oh so many. Read the review.

Shaper's has been my favorite hair salon in New Paltz for over 10 years. Now that they're in their new location, they have the space to accomodate their many customers without feeling cramped. The atomosphere is extremely relaxing, the prices are great for what you're getting - Manhattan quality hair styling. The staff is incredible. In addition to being a beauty salon, Shaper's does makeup as well, and is available for weddings and events.
