I startedy going to the Butterfly Studio several months ago and my hair has never looked so good...thanks to HARMONIE. I am a weekly client (for blowouts) and every time I walk out of the salon I feel like a hair model. Harmonie is super talented and so versitile when it comes to styling hair. She knows the type of hair style that would fit your face. I am sooooo happy I found her!!!!! In addition, everyone at the salon is friendly and helpful. I recommend Harmonie highly!!!!!

I'm a beauty & product junky-I try everything. But I've learned the one thing you just don't mess with is ...your hair.
This is the sort of place you want to keep secret -but need to cheer for out loud.
Every stylist that has cut or blown my hair has been
Ah-mazing--they just get it.
For any brazilian bikini virgins or phobes-you need to see Christina!
And Color!? It's all about MIN KIM.
Seriously.
I have dark asian hair-trust me, having highlights could easily look really wrong. I know-and sadly, I've been there. And then I found Min...life, forever got brighter.
She listens ,assesses and then -- just makes better.
Love her-Love Butterfly!
It's so refreshing to know when you're in good hands-and all you have to do is just show up.

This place is an absolute dream salon. Fortunately enough, I was given peace of mind by being taken care of by a stylist by the name of Jill. Guys, if you're tired of the clippers and want to get a fresh nourished look, Jill is definitely the person for you. As a man coming from a past of barber shop experiences, Jill definitely did an excellent job transitioning me to an environment of fresh cuts. Right when I sat down, she genuinely broke the ice with her down-to-earth personality and made me feel like I wasn't just another client to get through. In the mix, she taught me a couple of ways to keep my hair healthy and fresh; some of which most guys probably aren't aware of. This girl definitely knows her stuff. Thanks to her professionalism, knowledge, and cool personality, I can honestly say I walked out of there feeling much more confident than before.

I have nothing but good things to say about their customer service, and the quality of the salon itself. If you want movie-star hair go straight to Vanessa and Joanna at Butterfly.Over the last year they have transformed my cut, color, and the overall quality of my hair. I get nothing but compliments on my hair now. Joanna's color is fantastic - she's really a genius at creating a more fabulous version of what nature's given you. And Vanessa's hair cut actually lasts a full 2 months, and she always gives me the most phenomenal blow-outs that lasts for days. That said, it ain't cheap. But you get what you pay for. After years of trying to bargain hunt, I realize now that it just isn't worth it. You're going to spend some coin, but you're going to look and feel like a million bucks. And don't forget to schedule a Kerastasse Treatment - your hair stays shiny for weeks after - worth the $45.

I feel so fortunate to have discovered Butterfly! Kelly worked with me on how to style my short hair at home after giving me a fabulous cut! I love the open concept of the salon, and the care and attention I received!

I've been going to Butterfly ever since they opened and have never been disappointed. The care and attention given to me as soon as I walk through the doors is exceptional. Kattia has done a wonderful job of creating an enviornment that is all about the "experience".

Her team is top notch and are true experts in their field of color and cut. They work with you to determine what cut is best for you as well as what color will enhance what God already gave you! I never feel rushed or feel like products are pushed on me.

Everytime I go there is are true collaborative effort between everyone you work with. I've never been disappointed and highly recommend Butterfly for cut, color, great waxing and manis/pedis. You will not be disappointed.

I hesitate to write such a stellar review because I don't want you to go there. I want Butterfly to be my own little secret to fabulousness. But a talent such as my colorist MUST be exposed for all the world to love. SO I cast my selfishness aside to share:

I have been living in NY for 10 years and I can NOT believe that I did not stumble here sooner. I mean really. My hair is very high maintenance- I have half a head of extensions and I am ohhh so picky as to who can touch it. Color has been my own personal nightmare until I found Min Kim.

Let me explain the state my hair was in before I arrived- brassy highlights grown out since the summer, dark roots and three shades of color I can't describe. I was greeted warmly and whisked over to Min's chair where she assessed my hair, asked me questions and actually listened to what I had to say. I just told her to fix me and that she did. She was beyond knowledgeable and so efficient- she warmed up my dark roots and then added subtle highlights in the front and low lights in the back and glossed everything up so I walked out with shiny bouncy hair. I am in love with my hair. And her. And the salon.

Everyone was SO NICE and friendly. The place had a great energy and I am definitely going back.

It's all about Min Kim ladies. MIN KIM. She should be president.

I've lived in Manhattan my whole life and had yet to find a stylist I would stick to... until I met Autumn. I was recommended to her by a good friend and I'm so lucky to have met her. My heavy, long hair was damaged and just plain boring. I told Autumn that I wanted my hair to look healthier, have some shape and style but above all, keep the length. Instead of the usual eye-roll I'd been receiving, Autumn carefully examined my hair to see what needed to be done and then got started. After an amazing shampoo, cut and blow dry, I was transformed. She did exactly what I had asked and it looked better than what I'd hoped. I barely noticed a change in length but my hair was shinier than it's been in years. Autumn brought back the health and bounce to my hair, but most importantly... she gave me style. Love her and never going anywhere else!

By a stroke of good hair karma, when I first moved to the city four years ago, I stumbled upon Butterfly in my online research. By all accounts the reviews were rave and my hair needed color and stylistic salvation. After Min's transformative color change from Marilyn Monroe-blonde to Julianne Moore-red, she insisted I see Roman and seriously update my cut, which was super (lower-back) long and had absolutely no shape whatsoever. RK immediately gave me bangs and layers but still gave me room to play around with up-dos, ponytails, etc. When I left the salon that day, three different women stopped me on the street to complement the hue and cut. Needless to say, I've never been to either another colorist or stylist since.

I've been here three times and absolutely love it. My hair has been difficult to manage for years, but after trying Butterfly, this is the first time in my life where a good hair day is the norm and not the exception!

Kelly cuts my hair, Tracy colors it, and Vanessa gave me a Brazilian relaxing treatment. The Brazilian has changed my life -- getting ready every day is worlds easier, my hair is under control, and it looks better than it ever has. Going to Butterfly is worth every penny.

Nicole is such a talented stylist. Her cuts grow in well & last so long.
I feel like she took the time to listen to my challanges & educate me on what we needed to do to achieve this. If you are looking for a great person with tons of talent this is the person!!

Before going to Butterfly Studios, I constantly experimented with several salons, until I went to
DePasquale's in NJ and the totally ruined my hair AND charged me! At that point, I stopped experimenting and took a friends recommendation to go to Butterfly Studios! I have been nowhere else since finding Joanna G, Vanessa and a male stylist (forgot his name) long story short, everyone who has done my hair has been great! Joanna has done my color on several occasions and for a change, it doesn't get brassy and orange after a while. It always maintains as a nice brownish shiny color and the highlights are always subtle and blend in great! She's great! Vanessa and all others who have cut my hair have been fabulous! It's totally worth the money, I will never go to a different place!!

Aside from the studio having great ambiance and the staff being super nice I love Vanessa. I've been a client of hers from some time and I am always super pleased with what she does for my hair. She's cut my hair, which is straight, long and short and the look is always modern and beautiful.

I think she has great vision, she will listen to you and give you a haircut that goes with you. She's also a great stylist so prepare to walk out of the salon ready to show off!

First off, I love Butterfly Studio. My mom worked in salons while I was growing up but never have I gone to a place (especially in NYC) that can be as sophisticated and contemporary as Butterfly Studio, and also make me feel as comfortable and unintimidated.

Tracy deserves the golden calf award for her coloring technique. I've been seeing her for two years (exclusively) and in that time she has completely transformed my hair from fried broom straw excess to healthy goldilocks. She reads my mind through my roots whenever I go to see her and then procedes to create the exact hair color I'm desiring before I even tell her what I want, as it changes slightly per each season. I've lightened up recently (after serving jury duty, I was reinspired to go Legally Blonde) and could not be happier with the result. Now because of Tracy, I (along my hair) can be healthy and blonde at the same time!

I've been dying my hair since my mom told me I ought to begin in fifth grade.... And I've never been so happy and faithful with a colorist as I am with Tracy. Her work has increased the appointments in my social calendar and the confidence I have in my appearance. And don't we all agree that those sentiments are worth absolutely priceless! Ask for Tracy she is a color magician!

All I can say is that I love this place and everything about it. Everyone is always so welcoming which isn't the norm for and upscale salon. The vibe is great and although very laid back, everyone is very professional. I have been a client to the salon for over 1 year now and have seen Vanessa for blow-dries only. She always did an amazing job at taming my curly hair but I was still hesitant to have a haircut being that I love long hair and rarely get it cut. Finally, she convinced me that the haircut she was going to give me would only enhance my long hair and "good looks" as she said. Well, say no more, I trusted and she performed! I cannot thank her enough for giving me this amazing haircut! I have gotten compliments left and right and the best part about it is that she even teaches you how to maintain the same look at home.

For those of you fearful of cutting your long locks....fear no more! I have been back twice now for a haircut and my hair seems to be growing faster than ever.

Every aspect of the Butterfly experience from the moment you walking through the tall doors to the elegant light filled space, designed with the flow of energy in mind, all combine to make you feel relaxed, welcome and pampered.
The people who work there are so full of positive energy and are the most talented artists in the business.
The owner, Kattia has been doing my hair cut and color for over a decade, through many changes in my lifestyle and she has always responded to my needs and sends me out of that salon looking above and beyond any vision I had in mind.
All the stylists and colorists listen and suggest great ideas, and have such respect to hair health and integrity, as well as beauty and style. The products are the very best anywhere- and the treatments last.
I have taken to carrying Butterfly Studio Salon business cards around because women literally follow me to ask who does my hair!

i have been going to butterfly studio since it has opened.
Not only are they all so talented, they are all so friendly and make me feel so welcome. The atmosphere is modern and beautiful but not stuffy like some of the uptown salons.. Kattia the owner is the most amazing stylist and my haircuts prove it She is extremely talented and warm and friendly too which is rare for an owner of a salon so successful. Even though she has been cutting my hair for years she always discusses with me what i want my hair to look like and what my next haircut should be. Aneesa does my color and she is amazing, i have brown hair and it always comes out so natural looking. My husbund who was always so skeptical of going to a salon is now addicted and wont go anywhere else, they also make him feel like a king. The manicures i get there are the best in the city and Francis is the best eyebrow shaper bar none. It is truly a great place and worth every cent.

Each and every time I step foot in Butterfly Studio, the friendly staff is ready to assist me. The color specialist Joanna is excellent. She consults with me prior to working on my hair and makes it look fabulous each and every time. Her expertise, outgoing personality, and hospitable nature make me feel extremely comfortable in her company and in the salon. I recommend this salon to anyone who wants the best salon experience. I highly recommend Joanna Gonzalez for any color services. She is the best!

Kathrin - Saw Keith for blond highlights - he gave me the most beautiful, natural blond shade without the usual brassy tones that I have received at many high end salons around town - he and the rest of the staff were friendly and professional - would highly recommend and I look forward to visiting again.

I just had the worst hair cut of my life at the salon. I had to tell the stylist to stop cutting before too much damage was done and I still don't know if it can be fixed. I came home and my husband couldn't believe it and guys hardly ever pay attention to haircuts.

Min Kim is the greatest hair colorist EVER!!!! She is a perfectionist and she really knows what she is doing. I asked her to color my hair for the summer. I have very dark brown/black hair. She made my hair look like the sun streaked my hair "naturally." I am not kidding. She said she was going to do it that way too, but I really didn't think she would be able to make it REALLY look like the sun lightened my hair from being on the beach every weekend in the sun (make believe of course!). I have watched people get their hair done at other salons. I would see streaked hair, highlights, lowlights, blond hair get blonder, touch-ups, and they are only "fair" compared to Min. She is really an artist. If she can make my hair look naturally lightened by the sun in beautiful caramel hues and dark golds she can do anything with your hair.

THE HUSSLE AND BUSSLE OF THE CITY DOESN'T STOP WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH THEIR DOORS. I THINK THIS SALON IS WAY TOO BUSY AND YOU DO NOT GET THE PERSONAL SERVICE THAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR AND DESERVE. I DON'T MIND PAYING FOR GOOD SERVICE BUT I FEEL THAT ALONG WITH THE PRICE TAG, I SHOULD GET THE PERSONALIZED ATTENTION THAT GOES WITH IT AND YOU DON'T HERE. IT FEELS LIKE AN ASSEMBLY LINE AND I ALWAYS FEEL RUSHED. MY STYLIST AND COLORIST BOTH GET INTERRUPTED WAY TOO MUCH AND KEEP LEAVING ME IN THE CHAIR. THIS HAS OCCURRED EVERY TIME I HAVE BEEN THERE. THE LAST TIME, MY COLORIST NEVER EVEN TOOK A LOOK AT THE END RESULT. THEY ALSO PUSH THEIR PRODUCT LINES WAY TOO MUCH, IT'S A TURNOFF. I HAVE DECIDED TO GO TO ANOTHER SALON. FOR THE HEFTY PRICE, I WANT LESS INTERRUPTION AND MORE FOCUS ONE ME DURING MY TIME IN THE CHAIR.

THE HUSSLE AND BUSSLE OF THE CITY DOESN'T STOP WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH THEIR DOORS. I THINK THIS SALON IS WAY TOO BUSY AND YOU DO NOT GET THE PERSONAL SERVICE THAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR AND DESERVE.

This is the first time I have reviewed anything on citysearch, but I just had to write a glowing review on my visit to Butterfly Studio!! I read the previous reviews and decided to make an appointment for highlights with Keith, since he was reccomended for blonde hair. I was definitely not dissapointed!! The whole experience was so much fun... it is such a chic setting, and while there is a lot going on in the salon, you still feel like you have all the attention you need. Joanna, Keith's assistant was so friendly and attentive and took great care of me throughout my visit. Keith himself was amazing and listened to exactly what I was hoping for regarding the tone of blonde that I like! I can't tell you how many times that I have wound up with brassy highlights that I hate... and this time I was SO HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS! My hair looks amazing and I didn't even have it cut ... it is very refreshed and much healthier looking after my Express Kerastase treatment that was reccomended for me! I will definitely go back!

Pros: Fun Atmosphere, Complimentary Pomagranate Martinis, Well worth the Price of services

Cons: Can't think of any!

I had my hair ruined at Red Market by a guy named Arsenio. Keith fixed the bad highlights and gave me something very chic and glam! I was able to get in within a few days which made me so happy because I didn't want to be seen looking the way Red Market left me.
THANK YOU KEITH!

Pros: Nice setting and very clean. Trusted hair staff

Cons: Rude and unprofessional phone/salespeople. Prices were too expensive

All around great!!! See Keith for blondie highlights!!! They have gone up in price over the eyars but if you want quality work then you have to pay for it. I think everyone there is really on the ball.

I love Butterfly Studio. Best haircuts and color I have ever gotten with the most unpretentious customer-centered service. Unlike many places in NYC, you actually get the feeling that they like their customers. You get up-to-date hair care that is about you, not them. Service is helpful and unpressured. Staff is into finding out what you want and need and providing it They educate you along the way about what they advise and why, as well as about new products and services. Roman is the person who cuts my hair and he has become a regular with our extended family...He is gracious, participatory and can also lead with a clear vision for what would feature you best. Butterfly is not cheap, but you get the value and personal care you are going for...And personalized adaptable hair care that lasts from visit to visit.

The stylists at Butterfly are second to none. Josh B. and Min cut and color my hair and do an exceptional job. They are professional, personal and attentive. I get compliments on my hair regularly and it because of these two! Although it is expensive- it is a true case of, "you get what you pay for". Highly recommended!

I recently got my eyebrows done by Francesca, and was extremely Happy!!! I loved her approch on beauty and how gentle she is. Did I mention, she also did my wedding Make-up, and how beautiful I felt and looked on that very special day. She has been recently mention, New York's Mag. "Best Party Make-up" 2006. She's very professional,and books quit quickly, so, make your make-up appointments ahead of time!

I went to several places in the city before finding Butterfly. Everytime I get my cut or color there I walk out feeling great, and getting many compliments. With really thick, curly hair it is always tough for me to find a place that leaves me feeling like my cut still looks good four weeks in, but Josh always does a great job with pointers on how to keep it fresh. My color with Min constantly gets me lots of compliments, and lots of questions about where I go. While pricey, I've never felt like it wasn't worth it.

I was really disappointed with the salon, I was willing to pay the super high price in hopes of something really good and new, but I got a below average haircut for a ridiculous amount of money. The layers weren't that bad except that my stylist never touched the rest of my hair, resulting in me having a mullet. I asked for her to cut it more, but when I got home I had to cut the back 2 inches for it to look normal. The stylist's assistant was beyond annoying as well, continously pushing products on me and talking down to me. I have paid a lot for hairstyles, but not $200 before and never disappointed before today! I recommend Warren Tricomi Salon ANY day of the week, at least I get the most beautiful hair there for an 'expensive' cut, even though it is still cheaper than Butterfly.

I was recently a bridesmaid in a wedding and my dear friend scheduled all of our appointments here, having gotten great service in the past. Most of us knew exactly what we wanted and brought photos. It was such a scam - they did the exact same updo on a few of us and charged $215 a pop + tip. None of us got what we really wanted (even the bride) and most of us redid our hair once we got back to the hotel. You don't want to make the bride feel bad in any way as it's not her fault, so you don't make a fuss - especially since they make you feel like you're lucky to even have an appointment. Give me a break. Go elsewhere!

When I first went to Butterfly my hair color was a disaster. Not knowing about Butterfly, I had gone to an uptown salon for highlights and though I specified "natural" my hair looked streaky, uneven and brassy. I was recommended to Kattia for corrective color by a friend and made an appointment. The first great thing was that I got an appointment for the next day and have learned since then that although Kattia is very in demand she will always make time for you. Upon meeting Kattia she took the time to examine my hair and explain to me exactly what needed to be done to make it look the way I wanted (light brown with some natural golden highlights.) I was very impressed that she didn't use just one color on my hair to get my base color but instead used different shades on the top, middle and ends as she explained to me that each part of the hair absorbs color differenly. In the end, my hair color was absolutely stunning and exactly what I had asked for. The highlights were subtle and just served to accentuate the beautiful brown color that she had produced. And my hair no longer looked damaged from all of the past coloring that I had done but was instead shiny and vibrant. In addition, the color lasted for much longer than I had ever expected as I went at least two months without needing a touch up. The last time that I went, I also got a haircut by Kattia and although I was skeptical about getting layers in my long curly hair, Kattia was right on the money as my hair now has volume and curls so much better. With the haircut and color together my hair has never looked better!

Butterfly has a great staff, is a great space, and provides excellent service. Janet St. Paul is the best hair stylist in New York City. She works with you to satisfy your needs, while at the same time making excellent suggestions! The space is beautifully designed and the L'Oreal products are great. Overall it is a first class experience.

I have been to Butterfly a few times to get my haircut. What an amazing job. You can tell that the staff has learned from the best. I decided one day to get my color done, figuring, I'd do a "one stop shopping" kind of deal... and branch off from my regular uptown location. Perhaps it was L'Oreal, but my color was terrible. Sure it looked great when I left, but after just 3 washes it started to fade and turned to almost a greenish blonde. I went back uptown and had it fixed. I had never had this problem previously.. perhaps this place needs to branch off from the "ALL L'Oreal Philosophy" and get some color that works..

I have been going to Butterfly Studio since its inception. It never fails to astound me how consistent the fabulous quality of service is each time I'm there. Tammy is an amazing colorist and I am constantly stopped on the street by people asking me where I go to have my hair done.

You will not be disappointed!

I've been to most major salons in NYC and LA in search of great brows, and I finally found them! Make an appointment with Rachel. She's professional, friendly, and most of all, makes a beautiful set of brows - she can do it without waxing at all! Her prices have gone up lately, and it's definitely on the expensive side, but she's worth it. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I had my hair permanently straightened by Evelyn at the Butterfly Studio. It seems excessive to say she changed my life, but not all that excessive! I used to spend at least an hour to straighten my hair only to have it frizz up at the slightest humidity. Now I step out of the shower, comb my hair, and go. My hair is completely straight, and nothing ever messes it up. Sleep, working out, swimming, dancing, rain...no effect. It's like dream hair. It is expensive, but I highly recommend it anyway. You really do get what you pay for.

I've been having my brows done by Rachel at Butterfly for about a year now. I've had my brows done by half the experts in the city, but nobody does as beautiful a job as she does. I went for my appointment this morning and decided to get my hair cut on a lark. Luckily Kattia was available. She did such a fabulous job - it was exactly what I wanted. I can't recommend them enough. The prices may be too high for some, but the old adage is true: you get what you pay for.
