I had purchased a $75 package at Liz Russell for a wash and cut. After my hair was washed and the stylist was brushing it, I noticed there were reddish/pinkish streaks throughout a portion of my hair. At first, the stylist tried to tell me the streaks were natural. I have very blonde hair and my hair has never been dyed red or pink. I was very upset and kept asking the stylist what could have caused this problem. She never gave me any explanation, but instead kept denying she had anything to do with these dyed pink streaks that were not there when i arrived. She did tell me, however, that if I kept washing my hair, the dye would likely come out. A second stylist explained to me that other customers had the same problem, which she believed happens when dye residue is left on a shampoo bottle, and the stylist touches the dye and accidentally washes it back into the hair. She too assured me that the dye would wash out, but told me to come back in if I could not remove the dye.

Unhappy, but unsure of what else to do, I returned home and washed my hair a few times. After seeing no improvement, I called the salon and made an appointment to come back in. I met with the owner, Liz, who failed to accept any responsibility for what happened. Instead of apologizing or offering solutions to help, Liz told me I was lying and that I had entered her salon with hair with dyed pink streaks. Liz refused to listen to anything I had to say, and eventually stormed out of the room after saying "I know what to do." Her solution was not to help fix my hair, but to call the police because I came into her store to attempt to fix a problem caused by her employee's carelessness. While I understand accidents like this can happen, I could not believe the rude and disrespectful way I was treated. However, after reading other reviews on the internet, such callous and non-responsive customer service appears to be the norm at Liz Russell.

For about nine months now, I??ve been trying to refrain from exposing the truth about the Liz Russell Salon in NYC. Sorry Liz, I can??t hold back any longer and I believe it is my duty to let the world know how unethical and unprofessional you are.
To cut a long story short, my daughter and I paid $800 to get the Aveda Smooth Infusion Treatment at the Liz Russell Salon in NYC last December. What we got instead was an ordinary keratin treatment which costs a fraction of what the Aveda treatment costs. After making several unsuccessful attempts to contact the salon and trying to work this out, I filed a case against the salon in the Small Claims Court. Needless to say, I won the case and the salon was ordered by the court to refund me the entire amount I had spent. The salon had 30 days to comply with the Notice of Judgment. It??s been over six weeks and they have not complied yet. I called the salon several times, but Liz refused to return my calls. I even emailed her but got no response back. It??s obvious that she has no regard for the law and has no intention of sending me the payment. I also contacted Aveda but they weren??t too helpful either.
It??s appalling that people like this are allowed to stay in business!

WHERE THE HELL HAVE I BEEN?!!??! I work right around the corner from this place and for the past 3 years I've been passing by this place never thinking about getting my hair done here. I must say though, it is better late than never!

Anyway, I had the most wonderful stylist. Her name is Michelle. She's freakin' great. I mean, for the past 4 years, I haven't been able to walk out a salon with the same length hair, and with beautiful, BEAUTIFUL, layers until today! I was SOO scared and weary about tryng out this new place, but Liz Russell had so many great reviews, I had to give it a shot. This place is worth it. All the stylists looks up to par, and they are all soo wonderful. I'm not even exaggerating! It's too bad that most stylists aren't mentioned here for reviews- only some particular ones. But anyway, I like, no.. LOVEEE Michelle's work. I can't stop O-MAH-Gahing..

You can tell that Michelle was serious about her work too. She'll do exactly what you ask, and since I like stylists that really go at it with your hair.. I loved her more! I never liked those dainty stylist that took foreverr to cut your hair. This one meant business. She also convinced me to get a trim every two months because I have a stylist that I can trust now! GO MICHELLE! I'll be back in two months to get a trim and color for the upcoming winter season!

by the way, i'm pretty sure it's the styling that's super wowing me, but if i can see what my hair can do now, i can only imagine what more it can bring to the table. :)

I went in with my daughter, who is 15, as she wanted to get her long hair cut before school. Since she was getting a lot of hair cut, which takes a long time to grow back, she wanted to go "some place good." So, that ruled out the numerous salons near our home in NJ. Liz Russell looked good and it was also walking distance from the Japan Society, where my daughter is currently taking a class.

We were very much impressed with all the products. So many, and they explained them well too.

They also gave me an unexpected neck massage, but my daughter didn't get one, which surprised me.

My daughter loves, loves, loves her haircut. Mine was also good, but I have such thin hair it's hard to duplicate. We particularly liked the detailed vertical scissor cuts to give volume. They never do this at the cheap places.

We had Ivy and Sarah, and I'd recomend them both.

I thought it was well worth it and a good value, and I'd highly recommend the place.

I most definitely recommend Mara, the color specialist who took care of me. I was in serious need of help, my color was horrible and my hair was super frizzy. She recommended doing a single process and highlights to add dimension to the color and for my frizziness she provided a keratin smoothing treatment. I ask if it was possible to have everything done in one day and she said definitely. I was a bit reluctant but went for it because she took the time to listen and her consultation was thorough. When it was done all I could say was OMG! What a spectacular job she did on my hair. I wanted to wait and see how my hair would turn out, 4 weeks after my appointment, before I wrote a review. My color is still marvelous and my hair is soft/shiny and does not frizz. Mara is truly a genius and knows what she is doing!

I am a long time customer of Madion's. I went to him when he was at a different salon and followed him to Liz Russell Aveda Lifestyle. He gives an amazing haircut and the BEST blowout I have ever gotten. I have sent tons of friends to him and they have all become Madion followers, too. Great for highlights as well. When he highlighted my hair, I got lots of compliments.

Natalie 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.

I've been to a lot of salons before in the past and i havent found anyone as good as Natalie. I called the salon and let them know of my previous bad experiences and they suggested i see Natalie, one of their color specialists. My hair is very difficult to color because it turns red very easily. I was looking for natural looking highlights, as if lightened by the sun, to brighten my face but not noticebly processed. Natalie was the greatest! She took her time to listen and talked out the process with me until we came to a full understanding and agreement of what would be done. The results are fabulous!!! I got it done 3 weeks ago and I am still enjoying immensely. The color came out exactly the way I wanted it. And no turning red like in most other salons. Natalie is really an expert and a true professional. Really sweet too!! I will follow her wherever she goes!!! :) I finally found my perfect colorist (and I have been searching for years)

I have been salon hoping for years and have finally found my little piece of heaven right here in New York. As a career woman we are always faced with the challenge of juggling many tasks at once and we hardly have time to think about our hair. My stylist Natalie has taught me that with a little time and the proper hair care products, beauty can be achieved. I felt like a true princess when I sat down in her chair. She took me step by step on how to dry my hair and proper condition it. Thank you Natalie, you will definatley get repeat visits from me.

What an amazing experience, the treatment at Liz Ruseell is excellent. The high quality of service and absolute attention to detail transforms the hair experience into an individual spa like event. I had my hair colored by Natalie E., who gave me the best blonde highlights I have ever had. I am extremely picky and have tried so many hair colorists and products in the tri-state area. I am so thrilled with the gorgeous hair that I left the salon with, I have been flipping my hair ever since, Thanks to Natalie who transformed my dull, lifeless multicolored hair into a radient shining mane. The color is so perfect it is the exact shade of blonde, since the color I have received so many compliments,. Thanks Natalie, I just hope I don't hurt my neck flipping my gorgeous hair around all the time!

I called the salon to schedule an appointment and I asked for someone who was experienced in color. They suggested a woman named Mara and boy did they hit it on the nail. When I came in for my appointment Mara was very enthusiastic about doing my color. She then gave me a full consultation without rushing through it. She made it aware to me that my hair was too light for my complexion, recommending highlights, lowlights, and a gloss. When she was finished I was so amazed, I couldn't believe my eyes! It was a total transformation. She's a fabulous colorist and I highly recommend her!

P.S When I get haircuts almost every time the stylist gets a little scissor happy, but she cut only as much as I asked for. Finally someone who can cut and color hair!

I'm always looking for a great blow-out place near my office. That's where Natalie E. comes in! She does a great job and most importantly, when I came in a second time she remembered my preferences. I've also had a lot of past stylists have problems with drying my bangs, but Natalie got them right on! She even gave me a bang trim. My hair looked great and the blow-out lasted for days.

Conveniently, the salon is a block from where I work . I have very curyl hair and really needed a new stylisist. I had not been happy with my the guy who formerly cut my hair for a while. I called and asked for someone who who do a good job with curly hair and was referred to Natalie. I could not be happier. She's very sweet and did a great job. What more could I ask.

Natalie was incredible! I always thought I had pretty easy hair to cut, but didn't realize how bad my past haircuts had been until Natalie got her hands on me. Endless compliments from hour one out the door! Natalie=hair goddess!

I actually pass by the salon every day for work and finally succumbed to my curiosity and got a haircut. My stylist Natalie was fantastic! She spoke with me about my interests and had me describe what I love and hate about my hair and gave me the best haircut I've ever had! Not only that, I went back to her for some colour too and she was spot on with that as well! Friendly, expert-knowledgable, fast, and gave me exactly what I wanted--without knowing what I wanted!! What more could you ask for in a stylist?

As a guy, here is my experience with every stylist before NATALIE:
Stylist: "What do you want"?
Me: "I don't know, I just want to look good".
Stylist: "Well, tell me the haircut you want & I'll do it".
They don't get it - I don't know what I want, OK? I want to look the best I can with what I have.
NATALIE was the first stylist who sat me down and said "Given the shape of your face & the bone structure of your head, this is the haircut that will make you look attractive".
Since Ive been seeing her, the compliments in my office have been flying, as well as my friends requesting her contact info for her.

My fellow curly haired women know how frustrating getting a hair cut can be....most stylists don't know how to handle the shape of a curl, and thus chop it off. I haven't had a real haircut since high school, other than an even trim. Natalie E. immediately diagnosed me as being "severly one-lengthed." My curly hair looked heavy, straight and lifeless. I told Natalie to do what she saw fit for my oval face shape, but that I wanted to maintain a "length" to my hair. She cut pieces of different lengths, using only a razor! When she finished, my curls bounced up into life like never before. My hair had texture and even brought out highlights that were previously hidden under my heavy length. I was so impressed with Natalie's technique. Now I can finally get hair cuts again!!!

I have to say that this is one of the best salon's in New York City. It's not too big, it's not to small, it's not too trendy, and it's not too uptight. It's like a friendly hangout where you can go to relax, feel comfortable and feel a part of something. From what I have seen, every stylist in Liz Russell's Salon has something different and amazing to offer. Liz herself runs a fantastic and friendly staff! Maribel, Michelle and Ivy are FANTASTIC with their skill in blowouts. Allison, Ivy, Madion and Natalie are all amazing formal stylist that will give you your dream hair for any wedding or event. Nils and Natalie are the mens' haircut experts! Mara can make your hair straight, smooth and manageable with the keratin treatment. Garick and Gavrielle are amazing and perfectionist precision cutters with any type of hair... long, short, and in between. The assistants here are always ahead of the game and give great massages before and during shampoo's! There are so many perks to this salon, I could go on and on... It is a very inviting, relaxing atmosphere and I suggest that anyone who would like to get great results, try this salon!

I've been to the salon for a cut and color on two separate occassions and am officially an Liz Russell Salon devotee, forever. Natalie is a total sweetheart and nothing short of a genius with color - her highlights are a work of art. She won't make a move without talking to you at length, listens to your ideas and shares her opinion on what will be most appealing. She is the most meticulous stylist I've ever visited for a cut - she spends more time on finish work than most stylists spend on a whole cut. Her cuts have made my hair waaay more stylish than before AND easier to style every day - every girl's dream. New York has an overwhelming number of good salons to choose from - but this one is beyond compare. Seriously, book with Natalie and you'll have the hair of your dreams!

I've been to the salon for a cut and color on two separate occassions and am officially an Liz Russell Salon devotee, forever. Natalie is a total sweetheart and nothing short of a genius with color - her highlights are a work of art. She won't make a move without talking to you at length, listens to your ideas and shares her opinion on what will be most appealing.

Pros: Comfortable salon, top-notch color and cuts

Allison gave the best haircut I've had in a long time! She listened to me and gave me exactly what I wanted. She explained to me what she was doing while she was doing it. The conversation was more than pleasant and my experience with her was unparalleled. She is highly recommended!

Serendipity brought me to Natalie's plush chair. For years, I have had limp,
straight hair that every stylist cut the same way. No layers, angle from the chin
down. When I came to Liz Russell , before anyone even washed my hair, Natalie and
I discussed my lifestyle, how long I take to do my hair in the mornings, how I
style it. Afterward, she took 45 minutes (on a Saturday evening!) to show me
different ways that I can style it and how to blowdry it. In addition to having
the best hair cut I had ever had, I was asked out by multiple guys that night.
The second time I went to Natalie to get my hair cut, I gave her full reign to do
whatever she wanted. Now this is the best hair cut I have EVER had!
The way she cut it accentuates my faces best features. I like it so much and
still get so many compliments, that four weeks later, I feel compelled to write
this review. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND NATALIE- after one session in her chair, I have
no doubt that you will have the steadfast allegiance to her that I do.

I had my hair cut and colored by Natalie at the recommendation of fellow customers. Although it was a bit hectic in the salon and she seemed a bit overbooked I really liked her and felt comfortable with her. I was really happy with the way my color turned out and would definitely recommend her based on that experience. Unfortunately I think we had a bit of miscommunication on the haircut and I ultimately wasn't pleased with the way it turned out. I honestly think I may have just been the needle in a haystack however because based on reviews it seems people have been very happy with the end result when they see Natalie. I will also say this, she was excellent at following up with me and showed genuine concern that I wasn't 100% satisfied and made strides to see that she made it up to me. Very impressive customer service!

I can't say enough good things about the Liz Russell salon... I have been going here for years..ever since I got a horrible highlight job at another salon and showed up at Liz Russell's salon in tears asking if someone could try to fix what this other place had done. The stylists here are excellent. Jose cut my hair for several years - he was terrific. A few months ago I heard he was no longer at the salon, and I was so nervous to switch to someone else. Liz recommended Gavriel...and I couldn't be happier. He's great with color and is a talented stylist. I have medium to long hair, and I asked him if he could give it shape without losing too much of the length. His cut was terrific. When I asked if he could show me which brushes to use so I could try to recreate the style at home, he patiently explained which brushes are best for my hair, which settings to use on the blow dryer, etc. I love this place.

I've been getting my haircut with Gavriel for the last 8 months... and I've never been happier. Not only does he give me a great haircut but he's personable and very professional. The salon has a great ambiance and they treat you to a head and shoulder massage each time you visit. It's great. They only use Aveda products, which is a plus for me... I'm all about the environment and so are they. Love love love this place.

It's hard to find that perfect hairdresser. A hairdresser to me is one that knows you...knows the music you're into, the shape of your face and your insecurities about puffy cheeks or a slightly big nose, she knows your clothing style, she knows how you look on an off day when you want to wear your hair down but still want it to look good; she simply knows how to make you look your best, any time.

I had a great hairdresser once in NY but she moved to L.A. She was amazing...but then I came to Liz Russell Salon!!! It's Aveda too which already says alot.

Until I found out about this salon I didn't know what I was going to do. Another friend heard us talking about it, and she's now convinced that Liz Russell Salon is the best.

Getting your hair done here is like being at a friends house, that happens to have a super cozy and intimate house where their friends suddenly are you're friends too. Let loose, take a deep breath, and relax...
