Worst Experience EVER!!! 11/18/2011

I have never been so unbelievably offended in my entire life. I'm another sucker who was accosted in Union Square and convinced I was purchasing a deal. The stylist I had had mediocre English, so a pushy, rude, woman came over to help. She told me my hair was terrible. That i had to pay another $80 to get the highlights i needed to balance the color. She then told me it made me look ugly. When I told her she was being rude and asked her to please stop, she continued to badger me about my hair and then likened a hair stylist to a dentist. "If a dentist tells you that you have a cavity in your tooth, you'd get it fixed. This is the same". Wow... Funny enough, I asked for the woman's business card, after which she hands me a generic salon card. I asked the woman at the front desk for this rude woman's name and position and it turns out.......she's the owner!!! Her name is Maya Amram and she is by far the rudest woman I have ever encountered. The biggest waste of money and time. I prefer not to pay to have someone be that rude to me. more

AVOID! Worse experience ever at a hair salon 11/10/2011

**AVOID AVOID AVOID*** I made the mistake of buying a promotion card to this place. First, they made me pay the $15 product fee and said if I paid with a credit card, they would charge me extra. About 15 minutes after I arrived, I was informed the stylist I made an appointment with (Mina) wasn't there. The manager told me all her stylists are "professionals" and turned me over to another stylist. I wish I remembered his name, but I don't. He proceeded to show me his portfolio (he has done Miss Universe and people I didn't know). He said he takes before and after photos of his clients and insisted on showing them to me. I said I was short on time and trusted that he did good work. This apparently offended him. He said I needed to do half-head highlights and he would do it for $120. I said I couldn't spend that today and was going home for Christmas and was having highlights and lowlights done by my stylist there. He kept pushing and said he'd do it for $90. I said I couldn't and just wanted the 6 foil highlights that came with the package. He then told me my hair was damaged and I needed to pay for keratase treatment. Again, I said no; I explained I'm looking for a job and planning a wedding and couldn't pay extra this time. With that, he said he wouldn't do "cheap hair" and just doing 6 foils would be cheap. He walked over to the receptionist and said we "weren't connecting" and to assign me to someone else. I asked to talk to the manager. The manager came and said that the stylist told her that I had an attitude and told the stylist not to talk to me (which wasn't true) and that it's the stylist's job to tell you what to do with your hair. I said that's fine if they make recommendations, but I couldn't pay the extra money this time and that made him upset. I said I'd now been there for 30 minutes and just wanted the cut and 6 foils in the package. She got mad at me for saying this and said it was my fault and I was giving her attitude. I was then passed over to Carlos. When he put the 6 foils in, he did them more than half an inch away from the root! I asked him to please put the highlight closer to the root (the whole point of highlights is to cover up the roots) and he said he was. He was very nice and polite. However, when I got home and look at my hair closely, I was shocked at how awful the highlights looked because they were placed so far from the roots! In addition, the highlights aren't uniform--they are more bleached in some places than others and there are strands that aren't highlighted at all, except for a blob of bleach in one spot! It's like he had never done highlights before. I will now have to go to my regular stylist and pay to have him fix it. In summary, do not go to this salon! If you have any problems, the manager will blame you. It's not worth any amount of money when the results are so poor. more

Alfangi On Lex is the best Salon because of Lon Myles! 10/6/2011

I live in Long Island but I troop it to 40th and Lex every 6 weeks to have my hair done by Lon. He is the absolute best and I will not have my hair done by anyone else. He is a fantastic colorist and always does my highlights to perfection. I've been using Lon for years and I highly recommend him. As soon as I leave the salon I start getting complements and my friends are always asking me who does my hair. Lon is only at Alfangi a few days a week every 6 weeks so you better book him fast! He takes his skills all over the world! more

You'll LOVE it! 9/24/2011

Perfect spot. I just had my Japanese relaxer done and it came out phenomenal and not the mention what a great experience, considering is a lengthy process of about 4 hours. I was truly pampered and came out feeling and looking like a star. Compliments from all my family and friends I received. Thank you Nando! A must visit spot. more

Always a lovely experience 8/31/2011

I get my extensions done here with with Nando - fabulous hair and Nando is superb. I also come weekly for a blow dry and I always leave feeling great! People are pleasant & always accomodating. Overall, a great experience - every time. more

great experience 3/1/2011

My daughter bought me a promo package for Christmas. I was skeptical because of some bad reviews but went ahead with it (last Friday, Feb 25). Either the bad reviews were exaggerated or they (the salon) took them to heart and addressed the issues because we could not have had a better experience! The receptionist (Brianna) was very friendly when making the appontments and explaining what was included in the promo and was equally so when we got to the salon. Ernest was my stylist and he was very helpful in helping me pick a style that would suit me. I only went with what was included in the promo and he explained that he would only be able to do but so much with only 6 foils but there was no "hard sell" to get me to do more than I wanted. The woman who shampooed my hair (I neglected to get her name) did a wonderful massage while shampooing. Ernest gave me a great cut and I couldn't have been more pleased! When he was done I said I wished I HAD gotten more than the 6 foils and that I would definitely come back. I didn't book "day 2" when I made the initial appointment and they were booked for Saturday (and I live 5 hours away) but I will definitely go back for the facial , manicure and massage. Thank you again Ernest!! more

Color Rescue 6/28/2010

I had some truly horrible hair happening and Celia rescued it. She even found some magazines so I could show her the color I actually wanted instead of having to interpret my cryptic "chocolately reddish" . She literally held the model's picture up to my skin so we could look at the color. Then she found swatches and matched it to my skin tone. I was very impressed. Two and a half hours later after sipping a glass of iced tea and some fantastic lemonade I had a gorgeous head of hair. Thank you so much Celia! Pros: Makes You New Cons: Took A While more

Score!! 6/26/2010

I was hesitant to try out this place because of that one bad review but it wasthe Friday before Mother's Day and no one was available. They were able to squeeze me in and I got the best haircut from Alejandra. I asked for a bob haircut and I've had many of these. Typically the stylist won't make it short enough because the stylist is afraid she'll make you look too boyish or she'll just crop the sh*t out of your head thus making you look like some odd refugee. Alejandra cut my hair and after she blow dryed it she realized nope not short enough, so she went higher. And it was right. And it was perfect. Truly happy with the bob haircut she gave me and I would absolutely come back again. The place is lovely. The front desk girl was very nice and attentive ! Pros: Alejandra rocks!!! more

total satisfaction 6/26/2010

I highly recommend Celia as a hair stylist. I have been getting my hair cut at Alfangi since they first opened on Fifth Ave, and I've never been unsatisfied with Celia. She is up-to-date with the latest styles and can pretty much re-create anything...bring her a celeb picture or a magazine cut-out! Ivelissee (at the front desk) is also the sweetest most business savvy person, she does a great job with making sure everything is running smoothly. Go Alfangi Pros: knows her craft more

Bad Service and inexperienced Stylists 9/18/2008

Tried this place out for a blow-out and it was ok, nothing special yet the prices arent exactly cheap but I figured I would give them another chance. I came back for a color and cut appointment my stylist obviously didnt understand a word I said because I got a completly different shade of hilight than what i wanted. I asked for a subtle golden hi lite not an all over bleached blonde. They didnt offer to fix it and of course I was refusing to pay for it but this got me absolutly no where. I got fed up and just paid the $200 bill and went out with soaking wet hair. Thankfully I got it fixed at another salon nearby but I had to pay for that service. Basically, for a blow-out you can come to piermarco safely and get a decent job but please don't try out their color services you will just leave with empty pockets and color you never requesting. Pros: they could get you in and out quickly Cons: stylists have no idea what they are doing more

Upsetting Experience 12/12/2007

I came to Piermarco after the last salon ruined my haircut and i was looking for someone to do my highlights. I found piermarco near my job and decided i might as well try it. The stylist "taking care" of me ruined my hair and turned it into an orange like shade. They were rude to me and told me that I could fix it somewhere else. I will never be back there again Pros: Busy Area Cons: Bad cuts and worse colors more

Great atmosphere, excellent stylists. 5/16/2007

I tried Piermarco Salon for the first time, and i just want to let everyone know, this salon was very relaxing and very pleasant. Everyone in the salon was extremely nice and helpful. As for their stylists, from my experience, they were very good. They cut and style your hair the way you want it. Also, I love the brand of color that they used in my hair. It left my hair feeling so soft. I have recommended Piermarco Salon to a few of my girlfriends as well as family, and everyone loves it. I have been to many salons, but this salon makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed. Pros: Excellent Service, great atmosphere, relaxing and love the color they use Cons: Parking is rough more
