All I can say is Yuki rocks!!!!! I have been going to her for a few years for thermal reconditioning and the best hair cuts ever. I am going again on Tuesday and I cannot wait! I always feel like a million dollars after I leave and the best part is that the feeling lasts for months afterward.
Quality cuts by Ferrer himself ($165-$215) or one of his trained stylists in the quietly chic front area and color by one of three colorists in the spacious, well-lit back room. Other services include intensive scalp treatments with steam, manicures and pedicures, waxing, the Japanese straightening treatment and relaxing feet/hand/ear reflexology sessions. Coolest of all, the salon offers a blow-out lesson ($150 with cut), where you are taught, step-by-step, how to blow-dry and style your hair--and get a video of the session to take home. An extensive array of house-blend hair products are available for sale.
I've been getting hair cuts from Gil for over 20 years and have never had a bad cut. He gives timeless classic cuts and makes my limp, thin hair look full of volume. He also is the only person who can make my husband's hair look good! For color, ask for Sandra. You will spend an extra 45 minutes getting it done - but it will last forever. No one believes I actually color my hair because you hardly see the roots. We've had the whole family go for big events and everyone ends up looking great.
I have to write this review for all soon to be brides. i really have to thank the Gil Ferrer Salon for all they did for my wedding day. They transormed me into my fantacy vison of what i would look like for my wedding. Vincent did my hair and makeup, it was breath taking. They also helped keep me calm on this special day...They took care of everything. All my bridesmaids, my mom and soon to be mom, even the grooms men had their haircuts here. It was perfect. I couldn't ask for any better. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Gil ferrer salon staff for making my expiernce memorable and relaxed.
Pros: wounderful staff, excellent atmosphere, talented
I used to have a hard time finding the perfect hair salon,until a friend of mine recommended the Gil Ferrer Salon to me. This place is perfect. As i walked in i was greeted very warmley by the staff. The atmosphere was beaufitul with tropical flowers all around. They offered me finest cappacino, the best in town by far. I felt like a movie star when i left. I was given the best cut and haircolor of my life,and trust me i.ve been everywhere. i give this place a 10 out of 10....i havent gone anywhere else since
Pros: best cappacino, fabulous talent, great service
I had my hair thermally reconditioned by Yuki and i can't believe how straight it is! I usually have it blown out, but it doesn't even compare to how it looks/feels now. I also had it cut afterwards, and it looks great. The whole straightening process took 4.5 hours. The staff was very friendly, especially since i came in at 9. I even had a chance to talk to Gil!
The price for the straightening was what i expected it to be based on the fact that my hair is very, very thick. Other people have paid the same at other salons. I've never paid more than 50$ for a haircut before, but paying more seems to be okay with me now based on the haircut I got from Yuki.
All in all, a great experience!!
I walked in unhappy with my hair's color and cut, and walked out on cloud nine! Frank (cut) and Adam (color) gave me a bold new look that I love, and that I can easily maintain. The salon staff are welcoming, warm, attentive, and skillful. The best cut I've had in the City.
for men this a great place to get a haircut. The people are very nice and accomodating. They gave me some great tips on styling and I got some great styling products.
I went to get a hair cut at the Gil Ferrer Salon and now I am hooked. I will never go anywhere else. I told my stylist that i wanted layers and a new look. I got exactly what I asked for. They washed and dried my hair and then using a hair razor they framed my face with layers. My hair looks awesome.
I got my hair thermally reconditioned at the Gil Ferrer Salon and it was absolutely amazing. My hair looks beautifully straight and everyone at the salon was so warm and welcoming. I was nervous at first but they made me feel right at home. I recommend this salon to everyone.
What a fabulous hair experience! The staff treated me like a celebrity and left me with star-worthy hair - perfect for a night out in the city. I love Gil Ferrer!
Pros: intimate setting
I came in with my friend for the Straightening last week to Gil Ferrer Salon. I had the most customised treatment, and Yuki gave me such incredable individual attention to make my frizzy hair look healthy, super straight and so natural. The entire staff was a gem. My girlfriend had a make over as well. She had a magic hair cut by Taka and Scalp treatment with peppermint oils. What a luxury!!!!Give yourself a treat!!!!!
Pros: Luxurious, Relaxing, pampering
I had my hair Straightened by Silviya at Gil Ferrer Salon. I absolutly love it. She perfomed a mirracle to my dry hair. It looks so beautiful, and smooth. Silviya used some special conditioners on my hair and it looks amazing. I spend six hours at Gil Ferrer salon last week, and I'm so pleased with the results. This process changed my life. No more struggling in the morning. I recomend it to everyone.
Pros: care, attitude
Couple of days ago I had my hair sraightened at Gil Ferrer Salon, and I really want to share my experience with you. I'm sooooo happy and pleased with the results of the process and I recomend it to everyone who has a frizzy hair.You are going to look amazing!!!! Lots of my friends had it done in the other salons, but my hair looks the best, everybody said so. It looks so natural and silky. After my hair was straightened at Gil Ferrer Salon I know that this is THE ONLY PLACE to have it done. Thank you Gil and the crew, you made my day :0)
Pros: enviroment, service, quality
I went to the Gil Ferrer salon recently to get my hair colored and cut and they did an INCREDBILE job. Everyone is really friendly and helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. I heard about their straightening techniques and am thinking about going back to them to get it done. I have a friend who got it done there and they did a great job. She said they spent a bunch of time personalizing the treatment for her. I definitely recommend this salon...its great!!
today i had my hair straightened at the gil ferrer salon. it looks fabulous, silky straight and so alive. it is impossible to believe that i walked in five hours earlier with dry, frzzy, awful curls without a style. i had gone for consultations at a few salons but after meeting the professional staff at gil ferrer i knew i was in the best hands. they explained the process to me, checked my hair completely and spoke to me about a new style if i wish after the straightening. five hours later i look like a different person, if i say so myself i look and feel like a model. thank you gil ferrer you are all geniuses.
Pros: comfort, atmosphere, service
Taka is a true genius and artist. He puts all of his energy and personality onto your hair for one straight day. He stands behind his work 100% so I noticed that he thoroughly tests many strands of hair to make sure they are healthy and strong enough to withstand the Japanese hair straightening process. He will advise you to wait until new hair grows in if your hair is processed or damaged. Luckily mine was ready to go! I originally had very curly hair that I always wore in a bun because I didn't have the patience to style it. With my new straight hair, I wash and go and can wear it down my back proudly. My husband can't stop petting my head!
About a month ago I had very, very, dry, curly, kinky hair. My hair now feels like silk. Taka took his time with my hair and was very attentive. I also had my hair cut by him (and I NEVER let anyone cut my hair) and it turned out perfectly. I'll never go to anyone else!
