'm not the kind of girl who gets compliments on her hair. It's stick straight, coarse, and prematurely gray at an age where it no longer feels like a novelty feature. Added to that equation, a total lack of knowledge, interest, or skill in

Pros: amazing cut, amazing color

Eddie is the only person I have let touch my hair since moving to NYC three years ago. As a midwesterner, I was concerned about finding an affordable salon for highlights and cuts that meet New York standards of high fashion. My stylist Eddie is the BEST, and he really listens to what I want regarding color and style, while assuring I leave the salon with gorgeous hair. His work creates a soft feminine look, yet still conforms to the cutting edge attitude that makes New York a fashion capital. I realize by letting the rest of the world in on this secret, he may be harder for me to book in the future, but I have got to be honest. He is amazing!!!

I got Optismooth straightening done by Eddie about 4 months ago. It literally changed my life! I can't say enough how much I love it.

I had the Japanese straightening done on my hair over a year ago and it became so dry and brittle. Because of that, I was hesitant to let Eddie do the Optismooth. However, Optismooth was very different. It's exactly like Eddie promised. My hair is smooth, healthy, straight and easy to manage. I love it and highly recommend it!!!

Just had Nelson (the blonde guy reminiscent of Andy Warhol) give me a great color and cut. I had damaged ugly hair and he made it look shiny and healthy again! On top of that he is very warm and has great stories! I will have to travel the distance for him again.. The salon has a very relaxed and enjoyable quaintness to it! Refreshing!

Pros: great work, engaging conversation, nice people

If you're particular about the precision of your cut and really want to find a skillful, talented stylist, take a seat in Eddie's chair at Lotus. He really listens, incorporates your requests and can contribute observations about what may be best for your hair or face in a subtle way that inspires trust.

He knows what he's doing and respects the probability that you do, too!

I have been going to Eddie at Lotus for over three years. It is almost impossible to find someone who is truly talented in both color and cutting. Eddie does both consistently and he gets it right. He listens and gets my color and cut the way I want it every time! He also gives you time and attention. I would never go anywhere else, Eddie is it!!

Eddie has cut my hair for the past five years, and I am entirely devoted to him. I am considering moving out of NYC and still plan to make trips back to see him. I have never received so many compliments on my hair, and the cuts last a really long time. Eddie is professional and a delight to spend time with - the salon is relaxing, friendly, and beautifully decorated. I can't say enough about Eddie - I refuse to go to anyone else! :)

When I first moved to New York 4 years ago I was on a hunt for a good hairdresser. Everywhere from small boutique places to top notch stylists at Bumble & Bumble. I couldn't find anyone I liked. Then eventually I stumbled onto Lotus salon....just walked in..and Eddie cut my hair. I never got so many compliments about my hair. My best friend told me not to go to anyone else. I have been maintaining short hair for a long time. When you have short hair the cut is really important plus you have to get it cut very often. Over the years I have gotten to know Eddie and I won't go to anyone else. i trust him and all I have to do is tell him do what you want and I am always happy. If you are looking for a great hairdresser I recommend you check him out!!! You won't be dissapointed.

When I moved to New Jersey a few years ago, I was looking for a place to get my haircut-- but as someone who is extremely protective of my hair and terrified of getting a bad cut I was nervous to try a new place. A friend of mine who had moved from the city recommended Eddie at Lotus. It was the best haircut of my life and I've been going back ever since, even though I now live 2 hours away in Philly. I have a thick head of unruly hair and since I've been going to Eddie my hair has never looked better and I've never done less to style it. Don't know how he does it, but it's worth the trip and the price!

I left my hairdresser of 5 years and started going to Eddie about a year ago. He really understands hair, layers, and the true indication of a good cut is that it looks great for months! My hair is on the thin side, and he always cuts and styles it to look voluminous. I highly recommend visiting Eddie at Lotus.

I went in for a quick haircut and the guy started cutting my hair without rinsing out the gel in it first. Ouch!!! Everytime he would comb through he would hurt me, he also nicked up my ear, scratched my neck and was very heavy handed. I wish I cold mention his name but I dont remember it - he wore glasses and had a frizzy afro. And then I was charged $75. Thats more than a guy with short hair should have to pay ....wont go back - sorry

I've been going to Eddie for over 3 years now and he always does such a fantastic job on my hair. He always takes his time and makes sure that I don't leave the salon until my hair is perfect. His haircuts are great as well. I'd highly recommend Eddie.

I've been seeing Abbie for my cut and color for a year now and I've never been happier with a stylist. She is comfortable, generous, friendly, she really listens and she's incredibly talented at all things cut and color. I often go months without having time to go in and yet her cuts grow out so well my hair stills looks great when I climb back into her chair.

Go see Abbie! And you won't have to think about your hair, except to be thrilled...

I was a "recovering" bleached highlights gal who really needed help. Abbie did everything right, using a great semi-permanent color until my hair restored and highlights that refreshed my skin tone. Very nice person who is competent/skilled.

I guess other people have better luck than I do.
Although they were nice over there the guy who cut my hair was so distracted that he left it shapeless. I went to this salon thinking that for such an expensive price my hair would look at least descent, as a matter of fact it looks worse (according to my husband) than before being cut. I used to go to a place called Salon Shin where you even get a massage for the 60 dollars you pay.
I left the Lotus Salon with a wet blouse (from the washing), the brushing was the only thing worth it, although it only lasts one or two days.

I started going to see Eddie starting last year. Lotus salon is pretty affordable and it is in a great part of town. Eddie does the best highlights and I always get compliments on my haircut! He makes good suggestions and I always trust him. Also, he is really cool.

I got my hair cut at Lotus this morning. I admit, in spite of all the glowing reviews as well as two great references from girls at work I was skeptical. As a native Aussie, I have had no less than 5 awful hair cuts here in the states. The last one left me looking like Princess Diana circa 1979. Bad, bad, bad. However, when I arrived at Lotus Nelson sat down and spoke to me at length about exactly what I wanted, he asked specific questions, explained what he would do and then during the cut he continued to ask at each step if things were looking good. They were! He also gave lots of great advice about how to recreate the look on my own. He actually cared about what I wanted and really wanted to make it happen. Truly a five-star experience!

So nice to have the same person wash, color and style your hair and to be so talented at all! Eddie has a flare for knowing what you need (which is not always what you think you want) Eddie really takes the time to listen and then performs his magic with the scissors. The salon is cozy, homey and intimate. You'll walk out with a smile and keep coming back again and again. Eddie is the BEST!

I discovered Eddie by chance and he's my new stylemaster :)

Before finding Lotus salon about a year ago, I frequented another place for many years and had enough of the attitude that came along with professional stylists. Lotus seems like the little neighborhood place - very comfortable, approachable and accomodating - that is also professional in their approach. People leave the salon with a smile on their face and great cuts/styles.

My hair is tempramental - wavy and easily frizzed. I've had the same cut for some time -- longish with layers, but had a bit of a change recently. I decided to cut about 6 inches off and get a bob. Eddie did a great job. He always listens and somehow figures out what I'm looking for even when I'm not really sure what that is. He's got a great sense of style and is fun to talk to! I travel all the way from Mount Vernon so it must be worth it ;)

Thanks Eddie.. And if you decide to move, please make think north!

I have been going to the lotus salon now for a few years. I first picked the salon based on other reviews, and not knowing who to see at the salon, booked an appointment with Nelson. I couldn't have been happier, and have been going to see him ever since. He gives an awesome workable cut that lasts!!

I decided to give this salon a try after my company relocated and my old salon was a little too far to commute to. Abbie was recommended to me and I found her honesty and knowledge refreshing. I let her creativity flow with my input about color, length, hair type and all the other important factors you should tell your stylist (I'm REALLY low maitenance in the morning so a fussy hair style won't fly). She gave me an amazing, easy and uniquely trendy cut. I loved it so much I went back a second time a month or so ago. I told her I was thrilled with the last one and I was open to her imaginiation. I must say this is the first cut I've had in years that I have loved my hair curly over straightened. The price is extremely reasonable for NYC and the style and attention which their customers receive. Suggestion: Once you trust your stylist, let their imagination and creativity flow.

I haven't posted on here before, but being that I've found it so hard to get a good haircut in this city, I wanted to make sure other people know this place is great! I asked for Abbie based on a referral - I needed someone to fix up a horrible haircut I'd had elsewhere. Obviously, I was nervous to let someone near my hair again. Abbie was patient and friendly, listened to all my concerns, and gave me a flattering, stylish haircut. I went back to work on Monday and got a lot of compliments. Thanks again Abbie!

Eddie is absolutely amazing. I have thick Asian hair and he knows exactly how to cut layers so I don't get that 5th grader mushroom look or the typical "Asian shag". He takes time with me and really listens my likes and dislikes about my hair and about my previous haircuts. Isn't it strange how its hard to find a stylists who listens these days? I'd highly recommend going to him if not for the great haircuts but for the vibrant conversations. I used to go to the Lotus in Tribeca and moved to the one on Prince not so long ago. I really like the size of both salons and the stylists are talented and unpretentious.

I have been going to Eddie religiously for four years. And I've converted almost all my friends! He has great taste and understands how to make any hairstyle right for the face of his client. He recently gave my shaggy-haired boyfriend the best haircut I've ever seen. No lie. It's just amazing!!!

I went to Lotus on a friend's recommendation. I walked in trying to get an appt. the same day (knowing it probably wouldn't be possible but I tried anyway), and Kelly was extremely accommodating. She was already booked, but took my number in case she could fit me in. I was surprised to get a call from the salon a 1/2 hour later, saying that she'd be able to see me that evening. I had an awful cut about a month ago from someone who didn't know how to cut fine, thin hair. I didn't have to explain to Kelly much about my hair- she knew exactly how to cut it, and what wouldn't work with my hair type. She did exactly what I wanted, and knew how to handle my hair without much explanation. This is the best cut I've had in years!! Kelly at Lotus is great and super nice! She also isn't annoying and won't chat your ear off if you don't want to, but is very engaging in conversation when you do.

I can truly say with all honesty that this was the BEST haircut and color I have EVER received in my life!!!! I had read other citysearch reviews on Lotus Salon and thought the salon sounded like my best bet - having just moved to New York from San Francisco - and being in desperate pursuit of a great salon with great stylists for an affordable price. The other reviewers talked about Eddie and Ali so i called seeking an appointment with either one. Abbie K answered the phone and said she was the replacement for Ali and that Eddie wasn't around on the days I was seeking an appointment. As a natural dark blonde gal, I am constantly looking for that amazing colorist who knows the delicate in's and out's of highlighting fine blonde hair while keeping it natural-looking. ABBIE assured me that, as a blonde herself, she would be extra careful and would do a great job. I really quizzed her on the phone too and she took it in stride with no EGO. I tell ya, she was AMAZING! She used a warm honey/sand color to highlight my hair and did so with such diligence and craft that my head looks like it did when i was five - natural! The haircut she gave my long straight fine yet many-follicle-ed locks was truly the best haircut i have EVER received.
You can't go wrong with Abbie K from Lotus.

ABBIE assured me that, as a blonde herself, she would be extra careful and would do a great job. I really quizzed her on the phone too and she took it in stride with no EGO. I tell ya, she was AMAZING! She used a warm honey/sand color to highlight my hair and did so with such diligence and craft that my head looks like it did when i was five - natural! The haircut she gave my long straight fine yet many-follicle-ed locks was truly the best haircut i have EVER received.
You can't go wrong with Abbie K from Lotus.

My first experience at Lotus Salon was the only time I have walked out of a salon completely happy and without any reason to cry .. lol (trust me it's happened many times) and I have spent a lot of money on my hair many times and still was not happy. Eddie listened to what I wanted to ultimately accomplish with my hair and he took the correct steps to get me there without sacrificing my wants. I have received compliment after compliment on what a great cut and color I have and how healthy my hair looks. Thank you Eddie!

I wanted to change or rather fix my current hairstyle. I was tired of my cut....it was a Saturday and I walked around for a few hours trying to find a salon that could fit me in. Finally, I walked past Lotus salon on 4th street...they said they could fit me right in. I was so impressed by the way they treated me...very friendly and you could see they wanted to please the customer. Ken cut/washed/styled my hair! Ken did such a wonderful job!!!! He took his time and listen to everything I said. I love my new hair style!!!!

I def. recommend this salon to anyone!! Such a great experience!!!

I am from New York and I have been to many hair salons throughout the years. Eddie truly is the best hair stylist around. Recently, I had ruined my hair by attempting to dye it myself. I called Eddie and he gracefully gave me a last minute Saturday appointment. With care and skill, Eddie fixed my hair! He even called me a few days later to check in and see how my hair was doing! He's like a hair doctor!

i have curly hair. i have been searching for my entire adult life for someone who could cut curly hair well. to put it bluntly, ali is the first stylist i've ever had a haircut from, where i left the salon without feeling like crying. for anyone who doesn't have curly hair, a typical situation is that even if someone is an incredibly talented stylist, but not able to anticipate the way that curly hair will dry differently and SHORTER after you wash it again, you end up with a haircut that MAY look good after it grows in for a couple of weeks. ali not only has fantastic technical skill with a pair of scissors, but she also will give you guidance on what your hair is capable/not capable of looking like and not just on curly hair. i have been going to her for 6 years now, and since going to her, i actually actually walk out of the salon pleased to show off my new haircut. she has been at lotus for a couple of years now, and based on her abilities alone, i give the salon 5 stars. i have recommended her and the salon to at least 2 or 3 strangers on the street who have approached me to ask where i get my hair cut.

ive been trying to find the perfect hair salon in manhattan, one that i can stick with, for two years now. in the search i always have the same problem: good service for outrageous prices, or horrible service for decent prices. i can safely say that ive finally found a keeper in lotus salon. by the chic interior, prince st location, and clearly knowledable stylist (eddie)- i had resigned to the fact that id be paying a fortune and thought- what the hell. ive been highlighting my hair for years and this was one of the best jobs ive ever had. when he rang me up- i honestly thought there was some sort of error, because the price was so reasonable for the quality of service. it was fab. i will probably never visit another salon for as long as I live in NYC (which could be, forever......?) not to mention, nelson of the 'electric chaircut' works there too. its the best kept secret in nyc. i almost dont want to tell it. GO HERE.

I'm willing to be on Ali's wait list. She's the best and I've walked out with fabulous hair cuts from her. She listens as I ramble on about what I want, she gives her imput and, volia! beautiful, bouncy, shiny hair.

You're always welcomed with a happy greeting and everyone there is fabulous as well. Eddie tells the best L.A. stories, but I go to Ali. Please don't book with her, because then I'll have to be on a longer wait list to see her :-)

Eddie is the cutest ever and the place has a nice cozy feeling to it. Definitely an artist with his hands... turned my horrific damaged hair into a beautiful work of art!! Prices are great compared to other high end salons... would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a five star cut at a more affordable price

My friends told me about Lotus Salon and I just called and made appointment... I got Eddie and he was great! He gave me a "Hollywood" hairstyle (that's what he referred to it as) and then entertained me with some Bollywood music. I was very happy and got compliments the entire day!

I recently went to the Lotus Salon located on Prince. I was really looking forward to it due to all of the positive reviews. When I walked in to the salon, no one greeted me or even acknowledged my presence. Another stylist was sitting in the waiting area talking on his phone, obviously way too busy to take notice of me. I was finally approached by Eddie who did my color and cut. I must say, he did a great job. My color is very even and exactly what I wanted however it took FOREVER! My appointment was scheduled at 1:30 and I left at exactly 5:15. Eddie was juggling me AND another client at the same time which I thought was somewhat unprofessional. Overall, the salon is very affordable (compared to many other salons in the city) and the results are great however if you have any kind of a life, you might want to go elsewhere.

I recently moved from San Francisco, and I had no idea where to get my hair colored in New York without paying a fortune. After letting my dark roots grow out far too long, I was desparate for ash blonde highlights on my long, layered hair, and I decided to walk around Soho until I found a place that was cute and affordable. I stumbled upon Lotus, a tiny but bright and modern little place. They seem to specialize in walk-ins and last minute appointments, and I was able to make an appoinment for the following day with Eddie. A full highlight starts at under $150, a bargain in this city!
Eddie was great! He really knew was he was doing, offering advice on how to improve my previous dye job and make the color more flattering. He was easy to talk to but professional, and he was really interested in listening to what I wanted and making me happy.
I had asked for a really ashy blonde, and I'm super picky about my color. The next day, however, I decided that my new color seemed a little too silvery. I called Eddie up and he put a warmer toner on it the next day: No drama, no charge, purely interested in making me love my color. I now have a gorgeous ash blonde that looks natural and has many shimmery tones. I've had so many compliments on my hair (and cat calls!)since I saw Eddie, and I'll definitely be back!

Pros: Good Value, Friendly Stylists, Appointments on Short Notice

Funny, I just googled Lotus to find the phone number, but I have been going to the salon for a few years and noticed all the comments about Eddie on this page! Eddie does an amazing job, I've recommended him to several of my friends. I have fine, long, straight hair and he gave me the "jonathan" cut [from the TV show] which I find hilarious, yet I've received so many compliments. He cut awesome layers which gave my hair some desperately-needed body. I've also had my hair cut by Keigo on 4th St. location, he's also great.

Having long been disillusioned from numerous crappy $100 haircuts in this city, I was thisclose to giving up and cutting my own damn hair, because I can give myself a bad haircut for free. Some friends from work recommended Lotus, so as last ditch effort I relented. I went into my first haircut with low expectations, and was surprised to find friendly, down-to-earth people. Eddie made me look amazing. He did exactly what I asked for, with a modern spin. And for, like, 70 bucks. I was hooked. Second time around, I was just as happy, so I knew that a month later I could trust him to cut and style my hair for a wedding. My boyfriend thought I crazy, but I was positive Eddie would make me look great, and he did. It was one of those nights where everytime I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I was amazed that it was me. Highly recommended!

My friend highly recommended Eddie at Lotus Salon and now I know why! I just returned home from my first color session and my hair looks AMAZING. I walked in with a nasty color job from a salon that shall remain nameless...I walked out a gorgeous California blond. Not only did he correct the color, but he also gave me natural looking highlights. He impressed me with his talent, professionalism and positive energy. I'm going back next week for a cut. I can't wait. THANK YOU EDDIE! 4/13/07---UPDATE...When I returned to Eddie for a haircut, he created an incredible style. Eddie really listened to my ideas and took them into consideration as he worked. I especially appreciated that he crafted a chic cut without sacrificing length. My hair has never looked better. I've received tons of compliments from friends, family members... even strangers on the street!

A Lotus customer for years, I made an appointment today with a new stylist, Eddie. I've had several good and some great experiences at Lotus in the past... but NOT today. This stylist just did not get it. After a consultation and a quick shampoo (only, no conditioning) , I received almost the exact opposite of what I requested. Highly disappointed, I left this hip and cool salon looking like a used car salesman. I have to wonder, was it just this stylist or does it say something more about the salon itself that allows for this kind of representation?

It was my first time visitng Lotus. I was nervous at first but my stylist, Eddie, helped me feel at ease right away. I seriously think that he read my mind because he cut and styled my hair exactly how I wanted it. I looked like a Victorias Secret model when he was done with my hair. AMAZING!! He is very talented and has a great eye for flattering styles. Also he listened to what I asked for and made me feel comfortable. I highly reccommed this place.

This salon is consistently great over the years. They always have very talented staff. I see Eddie there who I cant recommend highly enough. He listens to what you ask for and offers his own suggestions within what you have outlined. He gave me the best highligts I have ever had. He is also very charming and funny but not in an annoying cant shut the stylist up sort of way. You know what I am talking about.

The salon has a very relaxed feeling while being very stylishly outfitted. The music is always excellent and the light fixtures are a work of art to admire as you have your hair washed.

I have paid a lot more money at other places for what was rubbish compared to my experience at this salon.

Make sure you put Eddie on your speed dial.
