Extraordinary experience and artistry 8/8/2011

Two friends recommended Nercy and Alchemy salon to me as a newcomer to the city. I loved their haircuts and their loyal enthusiasm. My expectations were exceeded! Her space is beautiful, calm, full of natural light and plants. She listens and incorporates everything I have to say and sees me and my hair with an artist's eye and confidence. The cuts, the color, service and attention are just outstanding, and the conversations are fun and inspiring. I look forward to going to see her, and I always come away feeling great about my hair and uplifted by the whole experience. I know I am in the hands of a gifted designer and a rare, generous, beautiful person. more

A great haircut and more 9/22/2010

I love going for a haircut at Alchemy. The space is gorgeous, the energy uplifting and the hair treatment is beautiful! I came to Nercy with damaged, over highlighted hair, and she immediately treated it so it felt more natural and soft. I am very happy with the haircut, relaxer, and color. I recommend Alchemy to anyone who wants to enjoy the hair treatment and the process to get it applied! more

it's a haircut and an amazing experience 9/8/2010

I went in for a haircut but as I opened the door and entered Alchemy I realized that I was in for an experience. The space feels like a little oasis with light earthy colors, natural wood framed mirrors, comfy couches and a music that makes you melt away or energizes you, depending in the day. Nercy took her time to ask questions about what I envisioned for my look but more importantly, she asked what I want to feel like, what my lifestyle and daily beauty routine allow for. All of which are so important when you choose a style. Then gently and masterfully she cut away, stopping just long enough to brush her fingers through my hair and play with my new style, making sure that it works just right. My wishes were heard, my cut came out amazing, I was getting stopped with complements on the streets of NYC for weeks after. The best part with the cut Nercy created for me, I am was able to achieve that look and feel of ease and freshness of a new haircut for weeks. And when the time came to trim again, I didn't hesitate for a second, Alchemy was my only choice. I wanted to be in that space again and get the attention I got and walk out with that floating on 7th cloud feeling I got the last time. I did, second time did not disappoint. I highly recommend Alchemy and especially Nercy to anyone who is looking for a haircut they can fall in love with and an experience that will have them coming back for trims more often. more

No More Chances...I'm done 8/25/2010

I have been a long time customer of Nercy's. I used to be so happy with my haircuts and they grew in beautifully. However, the last few times I feel she has gone down hill and after my last haircut I will not return. The second to last time I went to Nercy I asked her to touch up my hair with some color the way she had done previously. She over applied the color and my hair was shades lighter than my natural color. A month later I went for a haircut. Nercy asked me if I had lightened my hair. When I told her that she had made it so light she quickly changed the subject. She asked what I wanted to do with my hair and I told her I just wanted a trim and that it was a necessity for my hair to still be able to go into a ponytail. We looked at some pictures and decided on a length. As soon as she grabbed the scissors she chopped my hair off. I was annoyed with my hair being so short, but I'm more annoyed now that it is growing in terribly. It was an uneven cut (I even had a friend snip the uneven pieces) and it has no shape. I now have to find someone else to correct this mess. I used to be a big fan of Nercy's, but I feel like she has stopped listening and has lost focus. I had even referred some friends to her who are also recently disappointed. None of us are going back. more

48 and feel like a super model! Thank You!! 5/18/2010

I was feeling old and though I'm some what attractive I felt my good looks were a gift of the past and well I have a ""good personality"" now. I went to Nercy and she let me know frankly that I was crazy in a very kind way and said I need to loose my pony tail and color my hair and cut it short with layers, As she did her magic the layers melted layers of feeling like ""I'm getting old"" into feeling confident and the end result..I feel beautiful again and though I'm not a super model..I feel like one. She proved to me that beauty is timeless! Nercy will bring out the hidden beauty in you as well I was feeling old and though I'm some what attractive I felt my good looks were a gift of the past and well I have a ""good personality"" now.

Just fabulous!! 3/1/2010

I'm very selective and particular when it comes to my hair - cut and color and rarely try out different stylists. Although, this time, I'm thrilled that I did! Nercy of Alchemy Space is a real genius! She understands your hair and gives you exactly what you need - without you even knowing it till you see it. She's thorough and a real pro at what she does. Besides her professional skills, she's a wonderfully warm person and you're sure to have a great conversation and a good laugh! Final touch, the space is incredible! Convenient location and perfect atmosphere!!!! Pros: Nercy's a genius!! more

Nercy Is An Artist 2/20/2010

Besides getting a great haircut, it feels very special being at Alchemy Salon with Nercy. She seems to have a knack for bringing out the client's inner beauty. She is truly an artist ,and I would trust any idea she has for styling my hair. My last haircut still looked great after 3 months, and it was very easy to maintain!!! I have had good haircuts at other salons but the styles were very hard to maintain. I'm thrilled that my hair looks great with very little effort. And I always feel very special after leaving Alchemy Space. Pros: Consistently Great Haircuts more

Honestly, It is Great 2/12/2010

OKay so this is a great salon. Those who have not been satisfied definitely didn't look into the pricing, and didn't fully know what they wanted done for themselves. She WIll give you what you want... and if you let her go a little crazy it will be even better. It is truly therapy going in there. Susy washes your hair incredibly.. I love it, and I am sure you will too... but be aware that it is a bit pricey, you will pay for what you get ;) Pros: modern haircuts, great service, Nercy is a sweetheart Cons: you will pay for what you get- therefore a bit pricey more

Total RIP OFF. Don't bother 2/5/2010

My husband & I went to the salon and really were not impressed with our haircuts. Especially for the price. WAY over priced for the cut you receive. We will not be coming back. Save your $$$ and find a better salon. Cons: Expensive, not worth the money more

Best. Haircut. Ever. 1/25/2010

Nercy is a top-rate stylist! It took me 31 years to get the haircut I've always wanted. 3 times in my life I've gone from having long hair to my butt to a drastic above neck cut. The first time (in high school), I ended up with a tacky, unmanageable bob. The 2nd time (about 8 years ago), it was a boyish and unflattering short shag. Pros: Ambient, friendly, inviting, professional and talented. Cons: A bit pricey but worth it more

Highly perrsonalized experience 12/28/2009

Nercy is the owner of the salon. Not only is she an amazing person to know, but she is also an incredible talent. She takes personal ownership and vested interest in making sure she understands what you want and makes the appropriate time to schedule what you need done. Pros: personal attention, positive energy, exceptional color/cuts Cons: higher price more

You'll walk out feeling amazing 6/10/2009

I've been a client of Nercy's for 5 years and now travel an hour into the city for her incredible cuts and warm demeanor. No other salon has been able to match her fantastic skill, creating a flattering cut every time. The salon is incredibly friendly and you'll walk out feeling happy and beautiful. Pros: Incredible layers, flattering cuts more

Pricey but worth it 5/11/2009

This is a high end salon packed with talent. You may pay a little more than you would at an average salon, but you will leave there feeling like a movie star. You dont have to worry about who will be cutting your hair, because they are all amazing. more

Nercy is pretty amazing... 2/11/2009

Today, I'd received my second haircut from Nercy and really did a great job on my layers. No one was able to layer my thick, straight hair like the way she does. I always receive tons of compliments on my haircuts from Nercy, and she doesn't disappointment. She is super nice, too! more

Nercy is amazing! 1/31/2009

I went to Mialia in the hopes of just not getting butchered but ended up with the haircut that I have been trying to get for over 10 years now! Nercy managed to make my extremely thick, straight hair have shape and taught me how to style it too! She is so sweet and so much fun to talk to and I just hope that she and her salon do extremely well. more

Always a top haircut! 12/3/2008

I've been going to Nercy for three years and it's never been less than outstanding. I was tired of changing hair stylists after yet another one seemed to be less satisfying after several visits and I wanted to maintain a standard of quality in service and appearance. Nercy has been consistently detailed and I never have to worry about the cut 'growing in' after looking terrific for the first few days after. Highly recommended. Pros: Very consistent quality more

LOVE nercy & the salon 5/4/2008

Nercy's great- I've never been disappointed.. EVER! Shes very attentive. I've been going there for 2 years and I must admit, I've tried other salons and have ALways walked out upset! Pros: great stylists, very attentive staff! Nercy is definitely a +++ Cons: nothing! more

Won't be disappointed Ever!!! 4/9/2008

I've been to Mialia a few times and yep.. I always go back because this place is unbeatable!! more

Absolute magic with curly, unmanageable hair! 4/6/2008

Nercy is absolute magic. She does wonders with my long, thick, curly and unmanageable hair. She is able to shape it, tame it and make it look absolutely gorgeous. I don't even recognize it as my hair! She also shows me how to do it! No one can manage my hair like she can. I found her by luck when I was visiting NY last year. I waited a whole year without letting anyone cut my hair so she could do it again next time I was in NY. I had to hunt her down to find her at her new salon but boy was it worth the wait! She is amazing! Plus I really like visiting with her - she's such a sweet, fun person:) She's terrific! more

Great highlights-Such nice people ! 10/11/2007

I just tried Mialia Salon for the first time. I have been bouncing between different hair salons trying to find the right one. Not too expensive, nice people, great cuts and great highlights...I think I found it. Everybody was so accommodating and I love my highlights. Definitely going back! I really recommend this place.
