Lenny is at this wonderful salon and I'm thrilled to death. He just recently did the Keratin Taming Treatment on my hair. My hair lays straighter and flatter and is shiny and so soft. It feels great. And he does wonderful color to my hair.

This salon is a little jewel in the middle of an unpretentious street. My stylist is Nancy M. Nancy has been cutting my hair for about 15 years. I first met her when she worked for Vidal Sassoon. Nancy is an artist, a sculptor. My hair

Great salon - fun vibe, not pretentious, reasonable prices - what more could a girl want?!

I followed my color and cut duo to Gemini 14. I see Danielle for my color and Bastiano for my cut, and I am always thrilled with the results!

This is the kind of place you think of when you think of a really cool, hip salon. I'm so tired of all those upscale, sheeshee places that feel like an old ladies' apt. Gemini is cool and i know I'm going to leave there with a hip style

After searching through about 5 colorists in 2 years of living in NY, I am SO HAPPY I finally found Lior. He listened to exactly what I was saying, actually looked at the pictures I brought him, and then toned down my bleach blonde color

Pros: Colorist who listens and executes flawlessly

I do a lot of TV work and I only trust one person in New York to cut my hair. Ask for Nick at Gemini 14. He's amazing at both color and cuts. I don't get my hair colored but everyone at the salon is really talented. The prices are CHEAP

I have been in the fashion business for over 20 years... working with some of the top photographers, stylists, hair and make up artists... and I have never been happier or gotten more compliments on my hair... and told how young it makes me look... than since being recommended to Lior from the designer of a very high end fashion house a couple of years ago. Don't get the wrong idea though... there is no uptight attitude here. Lior and the spa are very down to earth and casual. He is great with make up too. So... if you want to feel welcome... relaxed... and look your best... Lior is the man for you! And everyone I have recommended to him agrees.

New York City's best kept secret for the most incredible hair styling EVER can be found at Gemini Salon in the West Village. Make sure you ask for Lior...he is a miracle worker!! Not only is he super cute and has an awesome personality, he is highly skilled and takes great pride in his work. He will NEVER let you down. I have tried every salon in New York City and paid thousands of dollars for bad coloring, horrible cuts and disappointing styling. I went to Rita Hazan, purported celebrity hair colorist, and paid $600 to have my hair destroyed by her. She was rude and did a horrible job. I had similar experiences at Louis Licari, Oscar Blandi, and Bumble & Bumble. Trust me, if it was a well known salon and expensive, I tried it. I was disappointed each and every time. It wasn't until a friend told me about Lior at Gemini that I found true satisfaction with a stylist. Lior has given me amazing blowouts, a hair straightening treatment called Opti-Smooth, shiny beautiful nature looking hair color, and excellent haircuts. Since I have been going to Lior (three years and counting) he has made my hair stronger and healthier. I was really worried about doing the Opti Smooth treatment because I was concerned about breakage. However, Lior is an expert and knows exactly how to give you the results you want without damaging one strand of hair. My hair has never looked better. I have referred many of my friends to him and they can't stop thanking me. So, do yourself a favor and go see Lior at Gemini Salon. It's the best gift you can give to your hair!! Marlene

When I say I've been EVERYWHERE in New York City for hair color, I kid you not. I've been to the "best of the best" and still no one has ever gotten it right. That is until I started seeing Kristina at the Gemini Salon. I stumbled across Gemini one day for a blowout (which I LOVED) so I decided to try getting my hair colored there too. I was recommended to Kristina and I (and my hair) have never turned back. If I were to count how many people have since complemented my highlights since I started seeing Kristina, I'd be a millionaire. She totally understands what I want and takes all the time to listen and then explain in detail what she is going to do. I had never been given this undivided attention before! And the dedication shows ... whether I've gone darker or lighter (i can now switch it up since I totally trust her work), the color always looks rich, natural and healthy (the condition of my hair has never been better). I've recommended numerous friends to Kristina and they've all joined her loyal following. Whether I am near or far, I will always find my way to Gemini to see Kristina for color, a cut and a blowout (she's a jack of all trades) because her talent is unmatched (and it dosent hurt that she is a total sweetheart). So for anyone seeking a hair colorist who will give you the results you want, go to Kristina! And also enjoy the unpretentious, friendly environment (especially the awesome front desk) that the cozy and downtown chic Gemini Salon offers.

With the exeption of Lana, who gives a discreet and fabulous facial, skip this place. The rest of the attendants are loud, rude, and gossipy. There is no relaxing at Gemini's downstairs spa. Like it or not, you'll hear about the client who is cheating on her SO. Learn about the client with the botched tummy tuck. You wouldn't belive what that nice doctor having the pedicure has been up to! This place has gone from uncomfortable, to bad, to truly awful with pet dogs running, barking, (and even pooping) all over the place. Whatever you sign, you can do better than Gemini.

I've had many great experiences with Gemini. Up until recently that is. I needed my highlights redone last minute and Christina was the only one available (now i know why). My nervous jitters kind of went away upon talking to her. She talked like she knew what she was talking about and sounded like she knew what i wanted. Well......the results didn't look horrible on the surface. It wasn't exactly what i wanted or even what i already had on the rest of my hair, but i accepted it. I went for a styling at another salon a few days later, and the stylist showed me what i couldn't see. The BACK of my hair. It looked like i let my 5 year old highlight my hair. There were huge spots from, what the stylist said, was bleach bleeding out from the foils. I was livid. I understand no one is perfect, but i wish she would have fessed up the blunder and fixed it right then and there, dishonesty is never acceptable. It was the end of the day, and she kept stopping to answer her mobile phone. So, i am sure she just didn't want to stay to work it out. I will go back to Gemini, but i absolutely will NEVER go to Christina again! She told me her family owns the salon. Doesn't look like skill is genetic

I have been living in the village for a few years and have been searching endlessly for a good salon only to realize that Gemini has been right here all along. It was recommended to me a few months ago by someone I had just met whose hair looked amazing, and so I went in for the first time and now I wont go anywhere else! I was extremely pleased with everything. I have been coming here ever since and every time I go, they seem to exceed my expectations.
The staff is friendly, professional and always makes you feel extremely comfortable.
Vickie is very attentive and actually listens to what I want. My hair always comes out beautiful. Next I will get the conditioning straightening. Everybody raves about it and I have seen a few women getting it done in the salon, each of them came out amazing. I am very happy to have found this place and would absolutely recommend it.

It took me years to finally pull the trigger and straighten my hair- after multiple consultations- I decided on this salon- and honestly the opti-smooth process has changed my life....I thought everyone in the salon was more than professional- and Christine ( my hairdresser) was soo comforting, and put me right at ease. I have gotten a ton of compliments- on both the opti-smooth process and my haircut- I can't even believe it took me sooo long to get it done......RUN dont walk there- I would go back in a hearbeat!!!!

I know this sounds completely conceited...but people have been literally stopping me on the streets for twelve years to ask me about my hair color! It's all due to Vicky!! But we can't stop there...the staff is warm, friendly, and super professional. I almost don't want to give away anymore secrets but Ilona gives the best mani-pedi! No slam dunk 12 minute nail salon treatment here...Run don't walk to Gemini...oh, and my friends get the hair straightening done there as well and they love it!!

You may categorize me as picky with my hair, but i have never been to someone who actually took the time to listen to me and deliver on my every request. I was referred to Christina by a co worker and I was really impressed. She did an amazing job with my haircut. Really sweet girl with amazing talent for hair. She totally understood me and my hair hasn't looked this good in a very long time.

Like many other people I have tried a TON of salons in NYC for hair and spa treatments. After going to Gemini I was most pleasantly surprised to find a place that was not only super friendly but did such good work! I went in for waxing on a Tuedsay and had Illona. Not only did I not have to wait(I was a walk in), but I had one of the best waxes ever. She is super friendly, super professional, and did one of the best waxes I have ever had. (on a side note i have also passed by for a wax on a day that Ilona was busy so had Lana....she is AMAZING...i have never felt so comfortable with someone)After going for a couple of more times I had my hair cut by Bradley (on reccomendation) and it was one of the best cuts I have ever had. He knows exactly what he is doing and listens to exactly what you want. I would highly reccomend Gemini.

I will contintue to go to him forever and always recommend him to friends, family, co-workers etc.

For many years i bounced from salon to salon, and stylist to stylist. I tried a salon in Chelsea on a referral by a friend and ran across Bradley. He listened, talked to me in a friendly and loving way, and then proceeded to give me the best hair experience of my life! I am notorious for always changing my hair, and he NEVER disappoints me. From the cuts, colors, and highlights, he always delivers. The chelsea salon closed and he moved to gemini salon. Not only is this neighborhood beautiful, but so is the salon atmosphere. Everyone has always been so kind and accommodating. I cannot sing his praises enough! i love love LOVE this guy!

I have been going to Gemini Salon for a little over 3 years and I have yet to have a disappointing experience. I have had spa services including Brazilian bikini wax (Lana is the one to request, she has a way of putting you at ease that makes the experience not so un-pleasant), eyebrows, manicure, and pedicure. I have put my trust and head of hair in Lola's hands for years now and am always super satisfied and impressed with her work. Her skill at coloring is amazing. My hair comes out looking so natural it?s almost as if the sun has done all the highlighting work. I tend to try and be a bit more adventurous with the cut and ask Lola for her suggestions. I always leave with a funky and fresh look that can be worn at work and at play. The salon is unpretentious, instead maintaining an air of west village chic. I will remain a loyal customer and will confidently recommend Gemini to my friends.

I sadly have to agree my experience has been in line with many of the poor reviews listed below...
It is true Tamara is great and gives a good wax (I, like most people, followed her there from Service Station) but the hassle and stress you have to put up with kills any benefit there might be in going to this place. The managers are rude and most offten yelling. Appointments are always VERY delayed and on multiple occasions I have had my treatment interrupted and the stylist or tech called away to work on someone else or deal with a screaming manager.
If you take care of yourself and have any idea what a spa should feel like or just like decent service, don't bother going to Gemini, go to any run of the mill place and your sure to do better.

I have gone to this salon for years and have always looked over the delayed appointments, loud management and stressed out employees. In fact I have recommended the spa to many co-workers (I work in the entertainment/fashion business and get asked frequently for recs). But I have to say this place has gone from OK to AWFUL. This is a small family business and the owners have three grown daughters who seem to think that their experience comes before their customers. The time prior to my last time I had three little children of one of the owners daughters running around the room while I was having a spa treatment (NOT VERY RELAXING). This last time I had a different one of their daughters come in to my treatment room three times and finally pull away the employee (I had requested and booked the week prior) because she wanted her to put on a fresh coat of color to her nails. When I finally left the salon over two hours later I told the person at the desk how disappointed I was. I should have known it was another one of the owners daughters who quickly told me that it was their business, that her sister could do what she wanted and if I wanted the place to myself I should "come on Mondays when this place is a nursing home" (that must be when they let their parents out?).
So don't go kids, the prices have gone UP, the service down and "management" seems to be unaware that paying customers are what keep the doors open (or did).

This is a small family business and the owners have three grown daughters who seem to think that their experience comes before their customers. The time prior to my last time I had three little children of one of the owners daughters running around the room while I was having a spa treatment (NOT VERY RELAXING). This last time I had a different one of their daughters come in to my treatment room three times and finally pull away the employee (I had requested and booked the week prior) because she wanted her to put on a fresh coat of color to her nails. When I finally left the salon over two hours later I told the person at the desk how disappointed I was. I should have known it was another one of the owners daughters who quickly told me that it was their business, that her sister could do what she wanted and if I wanted the place to myself I should "come on Mondays when this place is a nursing home" (that must be when they let their parents out?).
So don't go kids, the prices have gone UP, the service down and "management" seems to be unaware that paying customers are what keep the doors open (or did).

Pros: spa staff knows what they are doing and do it well

Cons: Atmosphere, attitude, poor managment, long wait times, jacked up prices

I have been going to Lana for a couple of years now for facials. She is the best! Not the wimpy facials you normally get at salons. This is serious extraction. After a couple of days your skin in growing. Dont go right before an special occasion though, cause it goes take some time to heal.

Pros: The extraction is really really thorough, you can see the results, you skin is all around cleaner

Cons: face is blotchy for a couple days

I went to this place and found it to be rude, loud, and a total waste of money. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

I went into this salon after reading a review on citysearch. I called and made an appointment. When I got there to my suprise, I was given another stylist who did a "ok" job. My missery was to see another client getting a wonderful haircut by the stylist I wanted while I was forced onto someone else. The woman at the front desk definately made me want to never go back.

Word to the wise, this salon would seem to be one to save you a penny but instead of saving money you get rude service, utterly rude reception by the boy/ thing at the door, hair unswept from the floor, loud hair dressers talking/ yelling their conversation over the hair dryers, classless people. I would say this salon deserves to be in Harlem. They over charge for under servicing. I would never recommend to a friend.

I've been to just about every place in the city for waxing and I've finally found someone who got it right. Lana does the best Brazilian in the city. She's quick and funny and you're out of there in no time with minimal pain. She uses a numbing spray and a really good wax and it makes all the difference. Best of all? It's only $45, which is almost half of what uptown salons charge. Look no further for a great esthetician: Lana is it.

I walked into this salon at the spur-of-the-moment. I needed to look great for a evening-out but didn't want to have to deal with that UES attitude, so I took a chance and did something I rarely never do, walked into a salon and took who was available. I have to say that my first impressions of the place were not exactly what I would call professional. Tucked away in the back was a seemingly unpretentious tattooed individual who gave me one of the best experiences I have had in a long time. He talked to me about my hair, asked me my expectations and truly listened to my concerns. He made suggestions of different possibilities and truly made me feel comfortable. I have to say I have had a great many opportunities to have my hair done around the world and this stylist was up there with some of the best. He took his time and gave me one of the best haircuts and blow-dry's I have ever had. I'm glad I took the risk because hidden in the back was a diamond in ruff. I highly recommend this stylist to anyone who might ask....

I was born and raised in Manhattan and believe me, have tried the most expensive salons for a fantastic eyebrow wax.

I started going to Tamara at The Gemini Salon and she is the BEST! in town. I have very specific tastes and she spends a lot of time with me. She does the job perfectly every time

I have been really stumped over where to go for my hair since I moved to New York from London. I had an amazing stylist back home and needed a replacement. I tried a few other places and wasn't ever really happy. I walked into Gemini after a recommendation from a coworker and I am thrilled. Great Color and amazing cut. Loved the environment. Really down to earth. A nice change from most other stuffy salons I've tried recently and really reasonable prices. A+.

I recently had my hair cut for the first time at Geminithe store had been reccomended to me by friends and by InStyle. I thought I would be in good hands, and that my haircut would cost only $50, which is what has been printed in magazines and online. What I received once I was in the store, however, was a completely different matter.

While I thought the man who cut my hair was a genuinely nice personinstead of getting a trim and some long layers, I received bangs which are no longer than the tops of my ears. I did not agree to have that much hair cut off, and furthermore, I did not agree to the price tag. While $80+ may be fair for a cut by a professional stylist, who is providing a service one cant find elsewhere, the quality of service at Gemini is not worth it.

Watch out for this seemingly innocent neighborhood salon. I was butchered (!!) by a very untalented stylist name Dawn! It started with a razor (which I specifically explained was a method I am opposed to) and ended with one VERY angry customer with a formerly gorgeous long head of straight hair, most of which is now in a garbage bag! DO yourself a favor and STAY AWAY!!!

I went to Gemini for hair straightening and I found the experience to be long and boring, but the staff to be VERY experienced and EXTREMELY professional. I would say this to the folks who were not happy and to any folks considering straightening - it's all about the state of your hair BEFORE you go in. This process, like bleaching or perms, is tough on your hair. If you have pre-processed hair when you go in, chances are your hair will suffer a bit. Also, this process works best on wavy to slightly curly hair and not so well on tight or kinky curls. Process takes 3 1/2 - 4 hours. I think it was well worth it.

they are inexperienced and unprofessional. I had a disasterous hair straightening process done that ruined my hair and they would not refund my money or tips( Over $600!!!) They could not correct the probelm and would not return phone calls. Save your money. I am not the first one to have this problem. Go to a professional instead of Gemini!!!

Do not get your hair straightened. I paid a lot of money & it lasted 2 weeks. I asked the manager to fix it & not only did she refuse she was so rude! I have had my hair straightened many times before at other salons. Don't waste your money & time at Gemini Salon. They don't even section your hair properly & don't have the right equiptment to do hair straightening properly.

the first time i went to Gemini, Ula gave me the best pedicure of my life! my feet were covered in callouses and blisters and after her attention they were as good as new. i now go there for everything, waxing, facials, etc. and always receive excellent care. i refer all my friends, and once they receive a treatment, they too become loyal clients.
