There is no trip to New York for me without a visit to Borja Color Studio. This Spring Break was no exception. I came back looking younger, with a cute haircut and GORGEOUS color. Love the highlights Borja suggested. Thank you Borja. I'll be back again soon. Love it!!

I discovered Borja Color Studio after getting disasterous color from another hairdresser. I found them in New York Mag's "Best of" listings. Danke fixed my color FLAWLESSLY on that first visit (a labor-intensive project for her that she made a pleasure for me--wine, cheese, lovely low-key atmosphere) and I've been going back for 7 years. The color is always PERFECT, it looks totally natural whether I'm getting one process to cover the gray or two processes to add some highlights, and they ALWAYS accomodate my schedule for appointments, whether I need "the works" before a big event or an emergency cover-my-roots fix when I can steal away from the office, they make room for me in their busy day. I could not ask for better service, better prices, or a more satisfying experience year after year. And I have seen many of the same faces there with me year after year--there is no better recommendation than a loyal clientele and these ladies have earned that in spades.

I am so glad to be back at Borja Color Studio. Being away for over a year, it was a real treat to finally have my color and highlights done by Danka and haircut by Borja. Nobody could do the color better!!!! I also love my haircut, it is very easy to manage. It is also a pleasure to be welcome with a big smile from staff. Thank you again, your are THE BEST!!!!!

I love this salon!!! For being such a fancy upscale salon they ALWAYS make you feel so welcome from the minute you walk in the door!

The owner, Borja and her sister Danka are really true artists - blow dry, color, highlights...you name it - they're the best!!

I've sent multiple friends to Borja Color Studio - brides, bloggers, and models and they have all been 100% happy with the results.....not to mention while your getting pampered they serve you a nice glass of wine :)

If your looking for a wonderful salon experience and brilliant results? Look no further - Borja Color Studio is the place to go!

Many NY hair salons are all about the 'show off' not quality of service. At Borja, they are courteous and unpretentious, yet classy. It is a most professional hair salon.

The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and they don't make me feel that I need to impress them when I walk in. On the contrary, they try very hard to impress me by making sure they do a great job. I have been going there for hair color for a decade. Danka is an artist with a keen eye for the right color shade and the head massage I get when the assistant washes my hair, toppled with a glass of the best Chardonnay anyone serves on 57th street, complete a perfect experience in one of the best hair salons in the city.

Went to Borja Color Studio on sveral occasions and was more than satisfied each time. Borja advised me against having my increasingly white/gray hair colored or dyed. She insisted that my color was avery natural and flattering color and should be left alone. She did give me an EXCELLENT haircut which made me appear 10 years younger. This is certainly not a salon that pressures you into having unnecessary work. Can't believe that Borja would allow someone to walk away unhappy and not offer to do something about it. I am certainly a committed client.

This woman knows NOTHING about ethnic hair. She completely burned my hair and I looked like a rooster when I walked out. She should not have charged me a penny for the terrible highlight job she did. I took a picture of the shade I wanted which could not have made it any easier for her but she didn't even come close! What a mess. I had to go to another salon to fix it. Paid $80 to color it over on top of the $260 she charged for the botch job. Don't be fooled by salons in the city. They don't necessarily do a better job. I just found a GREAT color salon in the Bronx with reasonable prices that did a great on my hair.

I??m a regular client of Borja Color Studio. I have been going there for years. I??m very pleased with the constant quality of service and the pleasant atmosphere. Their ability to work with variety of products and meet clients?? expectations are few pluses this hair salon has to offer.
I typically go for highlights and hair cut. Highlights are performed by Borja or Danka who are well experienced and have full knowledge about their products and meeting client??s expectations. After highlights, my hair gets a thorough wash by one of the pleasant staff members at the Salon accompanied by a complementary drink. Borja would then start my hair cut which constantly met my expectations. I certainly would recommend this Salon for anyone interested to receive quality service for hair care in a professional yet very friendly atmosphere.

Thank you Borja

Fantastic from start to finish! She did a quick assessment of my hair and described, step-by-step, what she had in mind. I gave her free reign to cut my hair as she pleased. She kept with a more conservative cut, only trimming a few inches, and fixing my layers, but it made a huge difference! Also, my color was to die for!

They were very friendly and professional. I was constantly offered something to drink or a magazine to read .

While I was there I saw several men get their haircut and most seemed like regulars... which I'm inferring means that they love getting their hair cut there as well.

With out a doubt, best Salon in the big apple. Run, don't walk to this place!!

I have been going to Borja for years after a good friend recommended her studio. She and her staff are all fantastic and accommodating. My hair looks totally natural and wonderful for weeks after a visit. It is always a pleasure to go in , read great magazines, and be pampered by experts. On a personal note, at one time I was going in for serious surgery and they even gave me touch up materials that I could use myself and offered to come over if necessary (I live close by). I will never forget that kindness. Go for the expert and wonderful experience which you will be certain to receive!

From the moment you walk in, until you leave you are pampered. Beatrice gives you a shampoo that feels like a mini massage, helps to destress., to all the extras she does for you. Then there is Danka who pampers you with a delicious wine or an earl grey tea. Borja is the complete professional, it is a wonderful feeling to have a person that knowledgeable doing your hair color and or highlights. She is absolute tops in the field. The service is individual and accommodating. To bad they don't have massages!

Borja makes my color look natural, I feel wonderful and know that my hair color is right on target. When I look at the people around me in the salon, each has a look just right for her. For color, cut and style, Borja and her team are the best.

I spent years enduring the snooty attitude and inconvenient appointment times of the major salons until I found Borja and Danka 15 years ago. This salon is simply The Best. It is small, unpretentious and dedicated to accommodating the client. Borja and her team work well into the evening in order to fit their clients' busy schedules. The staff is warm and very friendly.

Most importantly, Borja is an expert at creating the best hair color for each individual. She is a master at repairing the damage caused by other less skilled colorists. There is no one better.

I have made it a priority to schedule all of my out of town trips around my visits to Borja. I would not let anyone else touch my color.

Borja and Danka are artists! I discovered this salon a year ago and have been coming back for color, highlights, cuts and styling ever since. I always leave happy. The salon is light, airy and comfortable and the staff is welcoming and friendly. I would recommend Borja Color Studio Salon to anyone!

My hair already has the perfect golden hue thanks to Borja's magic wand and highlights...and NOW my locks have been transformed to sleek, shiny, care-free goodness thanks to Danka and her Brazilian Keratin Treatment. My hair looks like I spent the usual hour getting ready this morning, except it took only 10 minutes. Actually, it looks better than anything I could achieve on my own, regardless of time, and the best flat iron out there. It is a humid, rainy, hot day today and and my hair is sleek, very shiny and smooth as silk.
Danka is precise down to each strand...the patience and perfection with which she works ensures the absolute best.

I was sixteen years old when I went to Borja Color Studio for the first time to get my hair done and I remember feeling like a true princess. Getting pampered by her outstandingly friendly and caring staff and having my hair done by New York Citys best colorist herself in this elegant environment-I was amazed! Now, twelve years later, I still get the exact same feeling every time I go there...Borjas unique coloring technique and her amonia-free colors combined with her expertise of many years do true miracles to your hair. It takes half the time and leaves you at least twice as beautiful! Plus-if you ask her to do something to your hair that probably wont look good, she will tell you right away instead of just doing it and taking your money for something that wont make you happy. You know why? Because she truly cares about you and the way you look! Ive been to many different salons all over the world when I was away from New York and I was always disappointed because nobody was ever able to do highlights like the ones you get at Borja Color Studio. You want to feel like a princess? There is only one place to go to. And theyll make sure you look like one, too.

Everyone in the salon is amazing and so friendly. They do a FABULOUS job with highlights, and keratin treatment. I have been going to them for about three years and every time I have been there I get exactly what I want! I HIGHLY recommend Borja Color Studio Salon.

First time client to Borja Color Studio today....my google search on NYC's best hair color and highlights led me to her and I am so thrilled.
Borja transformed my long brassy-orange-brown-highlighted hair into the perfect latte brown hair with golden honey highlights...gorgeous!
Borja is a bonafide expert, using a technique I have never seen before, she paints your hair with the most natural highlights, and does so with the ease and elegance of a true pro. No foils! No smelly products! NO harm to my hair....and half the time. (Borja's hair is the prettiest blonde I have seen)
I felt truly pampered, as her team worked seamlessly to assist her.
If you need color correction, or just the best highlights you have ever wanted, don't be afraid of all the gorgeous hair you see in the place...your tired and confused hair will be treated with the utmost respect... and you will walk out with the best hair in NYC!

I have been going to Borja Color Studio for 6+ years and it is in my opinion the best colorist in the city. I have gone to the big and fancy salons but they do not compare. Both Borja and Danka are color pros and they provide an intimacy and understanding this is so refreshing. If you want natural and beautiful looking hair than look no further.

Truly personal service - Borja listened to what I wanted, including asking me a lot of questions. She made suggestions, and then kept checking in with me. My ideas were taken seriously and I got the color I was expecting. The salon is comfortable and the staff is very caring. I've been to other Midtown salons, but Borja Color Studio is the best.

I was so excited to go to Borjo from the rating it got from city search.

I went during the week. The salon was empty and I still had to wait over 30 minutes to have my hair done. No apology either.
This was the worst highlights I have ever had done.
I walked out looking like my roots hadn't been touched. After the blowdry, I asked if i could get the roots touched up. She got very upset with me and just said
" you done"
After paying $260 my hair looked the same as I did when I walked in and left with my hair in a pony tail.
I was also charged $10 for the shampoo.
Don't waste your time going there!!

After a friends recommendation I found myself in this cozy, comfortable coloring salon in the middle of the city's hustle and bustle. I walked in and was intastly greeted and felt very comfortable almost a feeling you get when you get back home after a long time away.
When I met Borja, who is the owner of the salon, I felt instant trust and I didn't get disappointed.
My highlights were a true highlight! They matched my skin tone just perfectly and I've never looked as naturally blond before. It really made my day! (and my boyfriend loves my new look!)
I'll never go anywhere else again to get my hair done.

I recently came here and got highlights from Borja herself from all the great reviews I read. At the moment I walked in, Borja shook my hand and looked at me slowly from head to toe in a condescending way, which I felt was so rude and should've walked out right after that. I told her I wanted noticeable highlights, but she probably only did about 10-12 streaks of highlights in my hair, which actually turned out to be orange, which I specifically said, anything but orange!! She did not even bother to blowdry my hair with a comb, but instead just ran the blowdry all over my hair until it was dry. The worst part of it all I was billed $260 for this horrible job and horrible experience. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else!

I've been coming to Borja for 3 years. I love what she does. My hair is dark brown but turns out with wonderful golden highlights. She always works with me and adapts to any changes I want to make. I really like that she paints on the color rather than uses foil - as a result she can get a lot closer to the hairline. Aside from her talent, I like the ambience of the salon. It's not at all a scene - very relaxing. She always gives me an appointment when I need it (don't know how she's able to do this but she always is) and gets me out in a reasonable time. Borja knows her blonds! and I'm one of them!!

Borja and Danka at Borja Color Studio are two of the most gifted colorists I've had the pleasure of meeting. Borja does my hair now for over a year and I love it every time. She is fantastic about making sure the color works for me and she is totally honest about the best cut and color for my face shape. I get compliments about my hair wherever I go. Also, the shop is elegant, relaxing, and fun; you feel welcome and right at home. Totally unpretentious, a breath of fresh air around here!

Also, the shop is elegant, relaxing, and fun; you feel welcome and right at home. Totally unpretentious, a breath of fresh air around here!

Pros: Brilliant work

Cons: none

I went to Borja for highlights and was sadly very disappointed. I had an appointment with Borja thinking I would walk out of the salon with fabulous highlights. Instead I left with brassy, blondish highlights...that might worked had I not had dark brown. I've had my hair highlighted several times in the past (at other salons) and I've always been very happy with the results. Borja used only color on my hair which was way too light- she even re-did it and added more highlights! Terrible! I think this salon would be great for those with blonde or light colored hair...but if you're a brunette I would definitely stay clear! I actually would recommend going to Culter!

I heard about the things Borja can do with colors but I was still a little skeptical since I've been to some of the "creme de la creme of NY" and have never been fully satisfied with my color. Last week I came in with a very difficult situation - I had about 4 different colors in my hair due to a mishap and thought I'd see what they think. I was hesitant to do anything but decided to go for it, and I must say I am very happy with my color. The most important things to me about my color is the impact it has on my skin tone and its sustained vibrancy, healthy look and shine - and this is the first time I have left a salon feeling that all of those have been accomplished. Given the number of colors in my hair that had to be dealt with I can only imagine what Borja can do for me next time.

I have seen Borja for haircuts and color on and off for about 6 years. Moving from Manhattan was difficult but finding someone as good was IMPOSSIBLE so I'm pleased to be home again and have her in my backyard again.

What I like about Borja's salon is not only that they do a very natural top quality job, it's also that she's straightforward with you. If the color you're asking for is too dramatic or going to look unnatural, she will advise you against it and explain why.

When I decided to cut my bangs - straight across in a hip new way she was all for it and put me at ease by cutting a little bit at a time so that the shock was not too intense and also so I could stop her along the way if I chickened out. I went out later that night with my new bangs and my stylist friend told me "your hair has never looked better, don't ever change it!". Success!

It's not cheap but it's worth every cent! I'll never go anywhere else as long as my job keeps me in NYC!!!! Her appointment times are usually flexible but be prepared to wait sometimes. Also, if you have a color nightmare from another salon/stylist no one is better out there to repair someone elses disaster. I've seen some awful coloring jobs walk in to see her and when they leave, it's a miracle! Total transformation. I've seen her be a saviour more than once!

Pros: Color, blowouts, subway access, manicurist, eye brow tint

Cons: sometimes you have to wait

I have used Rivka to do both my highlights and my cut for only a few years now and EVERYONE notices the difference. Her highlights are more natural and thus better for my hair which is now healthier. And, she approaches her work almost like art, she is very serious about the results and always wants to make sure that her clients are happy with the results. Additionally, one never feels that she is running from client to client but rather she focuses on one client at a time. After wonderful color, Rivka gives a great haircut, blowdry and I always walk out of the salon in a minimal amount of time feeling pampered and beautiful.

I went to Borja Studio after a friend of mine told me how great they color your hair. I took her up on it and decided to go in for a single process. THe color was wonderful. I was very pleased. Then I asked if I can get a haircut. Borja came by and told me I needed some layers around my face and since I have a bob haircut, I was skeptical but I trusted her. I told her that I style my hair straight and I need to be able to do it and not cut it too short. NEEDLESS to say: the cut was HORRIBLE! I walked out and wanted to cry. I went to 4 other hairsalons after this just to receive a consultation and each hairstylist (top stylists in NYC) asked me the same question: Who cut your hair? Obviously it was someone who had no clue about cutting hair.
Every one of these stylists told me that my haircut was the result of an inexperienced stylist who knows nothing about haircutting.
It's so sad since I paid over $120 for a haircut that my 5 year old nephew could have done. I will NEVER go this salon even though my color was wonderful, but I strongly urge you people not to even step foot in this salon for a haircut. There are FAR better salons closeby with stylists obviously trained to cut hair.
Borja- You should be ashamed of yourself for calling yourself a stylist when you can't cut hair- maybe you cut hair for women over 80 who can't tell the difference but for a professional woman like myself- you are the WORST EVER!

I've been going to Anthony and Rivka for years at their Salon in the Barneys NY area. They just moved to Borja Color Studio. Same great service!
Rivka does the best Holly Golightly steaks in town. They jump out yet look natural at the same time. My hair shines like a mirror when she finishes the blowdry. For the full walking on air experience let her do your cut too.
She'll leave your hair long and put the layers in just the right places. You'll wish you were going somewhere speacial after, to swing that goddess hair around.
My husband goes to Anthony for his cuts. Anthony takes his time though hubby doesnt have that much hair. The cut is perfect and super chic!
Rivka thinks he does the best short hair cuts on Earth, bar-none.
Call them to book an appointment 917.744.7289

Oh and they have never kept me wiating more than 15 minutes in the 12 years i've been going to them.

Rivka and Anthony, now at Borja, offer great haircolor and the best cut in town. They're really artists--Rivka is known for her careful application of color and Anthony for his precise use of the scissor. (Anthony trained with the legendary Vidal Sasson himself though you'd never know it as Anthony is very modest about such things.) I've been seeing them for years and always get tons of compliments on my hair after a visit. Their client base is varied and loyal--bankers, lawyers, publishers, actors, directors and producers. The salon is bright and laid-back with terrific views of 57th Street,. The staff is very personable--not an intimidating Madison Avenue experience. The music is always great too--ask Rivka for a peak at her playlist.

Borja and Danka are the best! Rarely have I been able to look in the mirror after I leave the salon and feel so good about my hair. You are both artists and a geniuses. Thank you so much!
For those of you who are loking for best highlighting without a foil - I strongly recommend Borja Color Studio!
One very happy client.

I have been coming to Borja for a few years now and I will say my color is amazing it looks so natural to my regular color. And as far as a haircut for years I could never find someone to cut my hair the way I liked it. Borja showed me there are people out there that can cut your hair the way you want. Borja and Danka and her whole staff are amazing. Finally a place that you will want to keep going back to.

What a terrific salon for all women! I' ve been blessed to find a salon where the staff really care about how you look when you leave. I've been going to Borja's for many years and have never been disappointed, nor have I ever seen a client leaving with anything but a great look. At times I've marveled at how naturally perfect these hair colors looked. Color is not all that they do and I've benefitted over the years from Borjana's expertise on cuts and body waves as well. Thewre is no nonsense here! If Borja feels that you're making the wrong choice , she will tactfully tell you so. That is a priceless quality. I can't imagine anyone going away unhappy, because she and her staff are always willing to do whatever they can to make a client happy.
I unequivocally recommmend Borja Color Studio for every asdpect of your hair care. No silly stuff here! Just great hair care. And a pretty good manicure too!!

Borja was great! She understood what I needed to do with my hair....She took time in understanding what I wanted and my personality...Once she started, she took time to do a very detail job!

I have tried other places in New York and by tfar, this is the best!

THanks!

Borja is the best colorist in NYC and maybe the nation, hands down (at least in my opinion)! The way she paints the highlights on as oppose to using foil allows for more precise locations of where the HL are placed and allows it to get closer to the root, which means more time in between visits. Aside from her true, natural talents as a colorist, the atmosphere in the salon is always amazing! From great tunes to wine and cheese while your there, this place is a must. Bravo Borja, Bravo!

Borja is the best! My daughter, mother and I have been using Borja for the last eleven years. We have NEVER been disappointed after an appointment. We started going to her before my daughter's wedding in 1997 and would highly recommend her studio to anyone without hesitation.

I just moved to New York from London couple of months ago. I was really worried about my visit and esp. my haircut as I have very straight, heavy hair. I also decided to say "good buy" to my highlights.
My colorist seemed to know my hair better them me, she did an amazing job!! Borja listened carefully to my wishes and cut my hair in such way that I don't need styling at all!!!
I paid good money, but I now everyday I enjoy my new colour and my perfet carefree haircut.

I have been going to Borja for over 10 years and she always does an amazing job... everyone at the salon is kind and considerate. Recently I went to Borja Color and had the Brazilian Straightening done... WOW. If anyone out there has frizzy or summer humidity curls, this is a absolute must!

There is no trip to New York for me without a visit to Borja Color Studio. This Spring Break was no exception. I came back looking younger, with a cute haircut and GORGEOUS color. Love the highlights Borja suggested. Thank you Borja. I'll be back again soon.

I've always had a hard time getting a proper coloring since I have asian hair, but Borja was amazing! She did exactly what I wanted and did recommend a color that would look best on me. Her and her staff were very kind and courteous which made you feel right at home. I also got highlights which were great.

Borja has been doing my cut and color for many years. She knows exactly what looks best and is best for my hair type. Over the years, she has really gotten to know my hair and what it will or won't do.
While in the salon, I am pampered by her and her staff. The most relaxing is the shampoo and head massage to relieve any stresses that you walk in with. Voila they're gone. Walking out you feel like a million bucks, but you certainly don't pay that. What you do pay is well worth it. After all, you wear your hair everyday. And there isn't a time when I don't get a compliment. What more can a gal ask for?
