For those who are writing bad reviews about the salon... You obviously have no clue about hair. As a fellow hair dresser who KNOWS the technicalities of hair. Haruo is a pure artist. He cuts hair like all stylist would only dream to. He is by far the most talented stylist around. Although I do not and never did work with him. I've been in his salon to just watch him. No one around cuts like he does. And he chargers NYC prices because he used to work in NYC before he opened up his own shop in NJ. He worked and was trained there... Its a very profession salon. And his employees are happy, i personally have two friends that work with him. They just know that when they go to work... he expects them to act a certain way with professionalism. And as for mistakes... every stylist makes a mistake with color now and then.. even top stylist in the city... people are human... its something called human error. And a true professional will fix it for free. Some people might be taking a medication that counter acts with chemicals.. but those who were not educated in doing hair do not know this. People going through menopause can have issues with hair colors as well. The man is amazing at doing hair.. and i had to write this because it makes me so angry to read all the AMAZING reviews and then to see 2 bad ones... when I personally know how talented the man is.
