I love the Gizay Michaels salon. Barbara the receptionist remembers the regular clients and is always friendly and personable. When I call for my appointment she always works to fit me in quickly.
Raia does my color and she is personable, sweet and an amazing colorist. Christina who takes care of me between color and cut (rinsing etc) is very sweet as well and always wants to be sure I'm comfortable.
Anna cuts my hair and gives the most flattering hair cuts. I have long hair and don't like too much taken off, but she always lets me know when I need a little extra trim, or a little update to my style.
I always leave feeling beautiful. My husband doesn't want me to go anywhere else. I've tried other salons, but lets just say, you get what you pay for. Thank you Joseph and staff at Gizay Michaels for being wonderful!

A negative review has come to our attention, and we are herein responding:
Although every situation has room for improvement, the aforementioned review was unwarranted. We are (as the variety of other positive reviews note), extremely concerned with the respectful care and attention to each of our clients, and their pleasurable experience. We are in business for 18 years, and enjoy a wonderful relationship with our clients...for good reason... We would hope that this response to all reading the review page, and to the probability that most of what the critic said was truly an unfair assessment. We invite you to enjoy the Gizay Michaels experience, and judge for yourself. Grateful for your attention, Gizay Michaels

Horrible horrible experience. I've gone to many salons in and around Huntington and I am used to at least good customer care. However, Gizay Michaels failed with that big time! I found the salon in a random search and saw that Jane was recommended. When I called I was told Jane wasn't in on the day I needed the work done and I asked if anyone else does good sexy loose blow outs I was told that "any one of our stylists can do that, they are all great". I was told over the phone that Anna was available and a blow out would cost $35. The second I walked in the place REEKED of cigarette smoke. In a salon? That does hair? Really??? Then I stood at the counter for a few minutes while absolutely no one even acknowledged my presence. Finally I spoke up and said that I had an appointment. Instead of being walked back to the washing station (being it was my 1st time there) I was told to "go back there". The washing girl finished and I was told "[I] could go to Anna's station" but being it was my first time there I didn't know where that was. I guessed the woman looking at me was Anna. I sat down and told her that I had a huge performance that evening in front of 2000 people and wanted "sexy Victoria's Secret hair, with loose waves, not sticky but something that would hold through the night" I also said I wanted it to "lift in the middle part, and have lots of volume...but also have a lot of movement, NOT STIFF". She never applied a volumizer to my hair but instead decided to spray a ton of sticky hair spray in my hair. She also decided to use a curling iron on my hair to create the waves. When she was finished after a ton more of hair spray, my hair looked more like Nellie Oleson from Little House on the Prairie then Victoria Secret hair. It was so terrible I could barely speak. I did say to her that it was very tight, not was I was expecting and she advised me that it would fall by the time I was to go on stage. Unhappily I walked to the counter to pay and the RUDE receptionist said my total was $50. I mentioned that she had quoted me at $35 over the phone and she said that since the stylist used a curling iron it was an extra $15 (which I wasn't told at the time she decided to use the iron). I paid and left. After looking in the mirror and getting funny stares at CVS I realized there was NO WAY I was going to walk out on stage with my hair looking like this. There was so much product in it that my hair was wrapping around my dangling earrings and ending up in pulling knots. I was almost in tears. I called and asked to speak with the owner and was asked what it was regarding. I said I was unhappy with work I had done and wanted to speak with an owner. The receptionist asked "which owner?". How was I supposed to know. She was blatantly rude to me and finally stated that she is the one to make any decisions regarding customer care. I told her why I was unhappy. She argued that she couldn't refund me the $35 for the blow out because that's what I came in for but that she would give me the $15 since I wasn't told there would be an extra charge. I said that wasn't ok ...since I was completely unhappy with the work and it wasn't they way I asked it to look. Not even close. It wasn't until I mentioned that I was performing in front of 2000 people and had to go home and wash my hair out that...and that I deserved a full refund that she finally agreed to refund my money. No apologies. She practically threw the money at me when I walked in the door with absolutely no comment about being sorry I wasn't satisfied with the work, or that they would like to try and make it up to me. I will NEVER recommend that salon and would NEVER go back there again. If I had known it was going to be such a terrible experience I would have happily paid $45 for a blow out at Spa Adriana in Huntington Village where the customer care is excellent and the work is always great. I am always greeted with a smile and a hello there, walked to the stations, asked if I would like a coffee tea or water, and the stylists are very professional and always make sure I'm satisfied before I leave. I second the review that this place is in dire need of a Tabitha Takeover! And while she's there maybe she can teach the receptionist/owner some manners and proper customer service!

This place needs a Tabatha makeover..hadn't been able to get my hair styled in about six months because of illness. So, I was looking forward to it. Went on the computer and found good comments about Jane at this salon. First thing you see when you pull up is the owners fancy car parked right out in front at a slant. Went in for my ten o'clock appt. The receptionist told me to go straight back to Jane. I found her blowing her hair and only half done. The other half was a mess. I should have left then. I said I'll go sit down and wait until she was done. The owner walked by several times. You would think because I was the only customer in there that he could say hello. But he couldn't. I told her the last hairdresser had given me bangs and I didn't like them. I told her I wanted to grow them out. My bangs are now shorter and more annoying then when I got there. At the end..no one had told me on the phone to bring cash only..sounds fishy..so I had to go to the ATM and bring back the cash..at that point I left the tips with the receptionist to make a quick exit. No product was recommended. Boy..Tabatha would have a field day. As for me..I won't be returning.

I had been going to another salon weekly and found them satisfactory until I returned from a vacation with a head of straw. I was advised to go to Gizay by a co-worker after I told how I couldn't get help at my old salon.Switchilng to Gizay was one of the best things I ever did. One treatment by Vickie and my hair was better than ever.Jerry does my hair every week. Raia does my color. and highlights. Jane, Anna and Michael have filled in when Jerry is away. Each one is tops! Jerry and Walter are great for hair cuts. The receptionist, Barbara, puts you at ease the minute you walk into the salon.I am now getting so many compliments about my hair that other people have gone to Gizay after seeing my hair.

I have extremely curly hair and before I started going to Gizay Michaels 14 years ago I never had a good haircut. I've since moved away from the area and I still won't go anywhere else.

New to the area and searching for a "wonderful salon experience." Haven't found it here! Colorist (whom i requested on the phone for the best in the place) was an older woman who barely spoke to me throughout her doing my hair. Friendliness was not her strong suit. The young kid who washed my hair barely touched my scalp---I was looking for a wonderful head massage...The blow out was fine. Jessica obviously just finished having a cigarette right before she started me - so the smell wasn't so pleasant. The icing on the cake is that this salon doesn't take any credit cards. I will continue my search for a wonderful salon experience, which shouldn't be hard to find - especially at these prices.

I am EXTREMELY picky about my hairdresser. I live in Huntington and was going to Maximus in Merrick for a couple of years. It was a shlep to get there, and when I did, I was unrelaxed as there is no personal attention. I started to research hair salons and came to a review from someone regarding Jane at Gizay Michaels. I want a hairdresser who has true talent and is up on the latest hairstyles. Someone that will tell you what you should do but listen to you at the same time. I went to Jane today and cannot tell you how happy I am. She did an awesome job, gave me a great haircut and is super sweet. Not to mention, everyone else in the salon was soooo nice, it's a really warm atmosphere, very inviting and relaxing. I am so happy, if you are looking for a hairdresser, Jane at Gizay Michaels, you will not be disappointed.

GO TO JANE! I've searched for years for an exceptional haircutter and finally found one. I was always frustrated after a cut and felt that a lot of haircutters just could not get it right. Jane is a very talented haircutter! She was recommended to me by a friend and now I recommend her to everyone.
