Lenny is here!!! There is a God!!! 11/30/2011

Lenny is at this wonderful salon and I'm thrilled to death. He just recently did the Keratin Taming Treatment on my hair. My hair lays straighter and flatter and is shiny and so soft. It feels great. And he does wonderful color to my hair. The highlights look excellent. The salon has a very welcoming atmosphere. It's nice and roomy and everyone that works there is really friendly. I can relax when I'm there and nowadays we all need that!! So Ladies and Gents go see Lenny and check out this great place for making you look fabulous. more

Leonard is the best! 11/14/2011

Len has been doing my cut and color for years. He is the best! I always love what he does and I'm always complimented on my hair. He also has a great personality, good sense of humor and makes you feel so comfortable. I love him!! more

Leonard does the best cuts! 10/16/2011

I have had short, long and in between length hair. I have been going to Leonard for 10 years and no matter what the length my hair hair has been I have gotten the best cuts with Leonard. He is darling,nice and smart and always has the best advice re hair treatments. more

Leonard Golino: Best hair straightening in NYC! 10/12/2011

I have VERY curly, frizzy hair and Leonard Golino has managed to calmed my fro! I have been a loyal client of his for the past 6 years. In this time, Leonard has successfully transformed my hair. My hair was terribly damaged due to years of incorrect straightening procedures; it was dry, damaged, and continually broke off at both the root and the ends. BUT, now my hair is the healthiest it has ever been. Leonard has worked a miracle. My hair is long, no longer breaks and is sleek and smooth. Leonard generally cares about you. He spends time to understand your hair and your particular needs. I will be forever thankful to Len for saving my hair! more

Leonard is the best! 10/2/2011

Leonard Golino just moved to Gemini 14 and I had to follow him there.I saw him this week and as always he did a great job cutting and coloring my hair. Leonard is a doll, always making it fun and enjoyable to see him. He has been taking care of my hair for the last 5 years and I can always trust him to make it look beautiful and natural looking. His new salon is great- they offer spa as well as hairdressing options which is really helpful. Everyone was really nice. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new hairdresser. more

Great salon in a great location! 9/22/2011

I just went to Gemini 14 for the first time last weekend, following my stylist Leonard Golino who just moved over there. As always, Leonard did an incredible job on my hair - I keep getting compliments on my color (single process and highlights), friends are telling me it's the best my hair has ever looked. He also did a new straightening treatment that came out incredibly well, I've been air-drying my hair (normally very frizzy and puffy) and it looks perfect. I'm very happy with the new salon - it has an excellent vibe, everyone was really friendly. I would follow Leonard anywhere, but I'm very happy that he's chosen such a great salon! more

Amazing Haircut & Stylish, Relaxing Vibe 12/13/2010

This salon is a little jewel in the middle of an unpretentious street. My stylist is Nancy M. Nancy has been cutting my hair for about 15 years. I first met her when she worked for Vidal Sassoon. Nancy is an artist, a sculptor. My hair is curly and from the number of lousy, mediocre or just ok haircuts I've had over the years, I don't think my hair is easy to cut well. Nancy takes her time (great art takes time, right?) and cuts my hair in beautiful shapes that fit my face and structure. I see her cutting all types of hair for all types of people and each cut is individual and fantasitic. Have not let any other stylist touch my hair in 15 years so that should say it all. Her new location at Gemini is very fun, friendly and relaxing. I have taken advantage of the great facials there too. more

Best Cut and Color in New York! 11/16/2010

Great salon - fun vibe, not pretentious, reasonable prices - what more could a girl want?! I followed my color and cut duo to Gemini 14. I see Danielle for my color and Bastiano for my cut, and I am always thrilled with the results! Together they have seen me through a pixie cut to my now collarbone length hair – with (miraculously) no awkward stages in between! They are definitely stylists you will keep going back to for years to come. more

Upbeat and trendy 10/7/2010

I have been a loyal customer of Danielle and Bastiano for quite some time now. I recently followed them to Gemini 14 and I love the new salon! It's upbeat and trendy and the staff is great! Danielle's talent for color is refreshing and Bastiano know's the latest style trends, and what looks good on me. They truely are a sensational cut and color team and I won't let anyone else touch my hair! more

Hip Hip Hooray 9/10/2010

This is the kind of place you think of when you think of a really cool, hip salon. I'm so tired of all those upscale, sheeshee places that feel like an old ladies' apt. Gemini is cool and i know I'm going to leave there with a hip style every time I leave. Love it more

LIOR- The Colorist You've Been Searcing For 4/29/2010

After searching through about 5 colorists in 2 years of living in NY, I am SO HAPPY I finally found Lior. He listened to exactly what I was saying, actually looked at the pictures I brought him, and then toned down my bleach blonde color into a beautiful natural light brown (to compliment my skin tone) with caramel low lights and blonde highlights around the face. I got what I have always wanted- Giselle-style beach highlights that look like they came straight from the sun. Go to Lior- you will love him. He's the BEST! Pros: Colorist who listens and executes flawlessly Cons: pricey but worth it more

Best Salon in NYC 3/11/2010

I do a lot of TV work and I only trust one person in New York to cut my hair. Ask for Nick at Gemini 14. He's amazing at both color and cuts. I don't get my hair colored but everyone at the salon is really talented. The prices are CHEAP for a new york city salon. Its super easy to get to right on 14th street off all the major subway lines. Pros: affordable, professional, talented, convenient Cons: none more

EXCELLENT! 3/10/2010

Ask for Nick at Gemini 14 - he's a top-notch stylist and does excellent coloring! I've been going to him for years. The salon is beautiful, clean, modern and bright with perfect service. The best part is the extensive and bright color wheel in the back! Pros: Great cuts & coloring! Cons: None! more

Excellent Service & Stylish Interior Design 3/8/2010

First, the salon is very stylish and designed with the client in mind (e.g., unique and comfortable shampoo sinks; and areas "out of public view" for color treatments). Second, the staff are friendly and accomodating. Third, in particular, Nick Russo is of the highest standard in both cutting and color; and is quite personable and professional. Pros: Staff and Color Bar Cons: None more

For the best color, cut, styling and straightening... look no further... call and ask for Lior today! 1/7/2009

I have been in the fashion business for over 20 years... working with some of the top photographers, stylists, hair and make up artists... and I have never been happier or gotten more compliments on my hair... and told how young it makes me look... than since being recommended to Lior from the designer of a very high end fashion house a couple of years ago. Don't get the wrong idea though... there is no uptight attitude here. Lior and the spa are very down to earth and casual. He is great with make up too. So... if you want to feel welcome... relaxed... and look your best... Lior is the man for you! And everyone I have recommended to him agrees. Pros: Lior's expertise, friendly staff, full service spa, village location and charm Cons: none more

Lior--Best Colorist & Stylist EVER!!! 12/21/2008

New York City's best kept secret for the most incredible hair styling EVER can be found at Gemini Salon in the West Village. Make sure you ask for Lior...he is a miracle worker!! Not only is he super cute and has an awesome personality, he is highly skilled and takes great pride in his work. He will NEVER let you down. I have tried every salon in New York City and paid thousands of dollars for bad coloring, horrible cuts and disappointing styling. I went to Rita Hazan, purported celebrity hair colorist, and paid $600 to have my hair destroyed by her. She was rude and did a horrible job. I had similar experiences at Louis Licari, Oscar Blandi, and Bumble & Bumble. Trust me, if it was a well known salon and expensive, I tried it. I was disappointed each and every time. It wasn't until a friend told me about Lior at Gemini that I found true satisfaction with a stylist. Lior has given me amazing blowouts, a hair straightening treatment called Opti-Smooth, shiny beautiful nature looking hair color, and excellent haircuts. Since I have been going to Lior (three years and counting) he has made my hair stronger and healthier. I was really worried about doing the Opti Smooth treatment because I was concerned about breakage. However, Lior is an expert and knows exactly how to give you the results you want without damaging one strand of hair. My hair has never looked better. I have referred many of my friends to him and they can't stop thanking me. So, do yourself a favor and go see Lior at Gemini Salon. It's the best gift you can give to your hair!! Marlene Pros: Friendly staff, spa downstairs, experienced stylist Cons: None more

Kristina - Best Hair Colorist in NYC! 10/27/2008

When I say I've been EVERYWHERE in New York City for hair color, I kid you not. I've been to the "best of the best" and still no one has ever gotten it right. That is until I started seeing Kristina at the Gemini Salon. I stumbled across Gemini one day for a blowout (which I LOVED) so I decided to try getting my hair colored there too. I was recommended to Kristina and I (and my hair) have never turned back. If I were to count how many people have since complemented my highlights since I started seeing Kristina, I'd be a millionaire. She totally understands what I want and takes all the time to listen and then explain in detail what she is going to do. I had never been given this undivided attention before! And the dedication shows ... whether I've gone darker or lighter (i can now switch it up since I totally trust her work), the color always looks rich, natural and healthy (the condition of my hair has never been better). I've recommended numerous friends to Kristina and they've all joined her loyal following. Whether I am near or far, I will always find my way to Gemini to see Kristina for color, a cut and a blowout (she's a jack of all trades) because her talent is unmatched (and it dosent hurt that she is a total sweetheart). So for anyone seeking a hair colorist who will give you the results you want, go to Kristina! And also enjoy the unpretentious, friendly environment (especially the awesome front desk) that the cozy and downtown chic Gemini Salon offers. more

Awful Day Spa 8/10/2008

With the exeption of Lana, who gives a discreet and fabulous facial, skip this place. The rest of the attendants are loud, rude, and gossipy. There is no relaxing at Gemini's downstairs spa. Like it or not, you'll hear about the client who is cheating on her SO. Learn about the client with the botched tummy tuck. You wouldn't belive what that nice doctor having the pedicure has been up to! This place has gone from uncomfortable, to bad, to truly awful with pet dogs running, barking, (and even pooping) all over the place. Whatever you sign, you can do better than Gemini. Pros: Hair extension pros Cons: Horrible spa staff more

good salon, but stay away from Christina 8/8/2008

I've had many great experiences with Gemini. Up until recently that is. I needed my highlights redone last minute and Christina was the only one available (now i know why). My nervous jitters kind of went away upon talking to her. She talked like she knew what she was talking about and sounded like she knew what i wanted. Well......the results didn't look horrible on the surface. It wasn't exactly what i wanted or even what i already had on the rest of my hair, but i accepted it. I went for a styling at another salon a few days later, and the stylist showed me what i couldn't see. The BACK of my hair. It looked like i let my 5 year old highlight my hair. There were huge spots from, what the stylist said, was bleach bleeding out from the foils. I was livid. I understand no one is perfect, but i wish she would have fessed up the blunder and fixed it right then and there, dishonesty is never acceptable. It was the end of the day, and she kept stopping to answer her mobile phone. So, i am sure she just didn't want to stay to work it out. I will go back to Gemini, but i absolutely will NEVER go to Christina again! She told me her family owns the salon. Doesn't look like skill is genetic Pros: the waxing staff and other hairstylists Cons: Christina more

talented and professional staff in a very comfortable atmosphere. A Jem in the village! 7/6/2008

I have been living in the village for a few years and have been searching endlessly for a good salon only to realize that Gemini has been right here all along. It was recommended to me a few months ago by someone I had just met whose hair looked amazing, and so I went in for the first time and now I wont go anywhere else! I was extremely pleased with everything. I have been coming here ever since and every time I go, they seem to exceed my expectations. The staff is friendly, professional and always makes you feel extremely comfortable. Vickie is very attentive and actually listens to what I want. My hair always comes out beautiful. Next I will get the conditioning straightening. Everybody raves about it and I have seen a few women getting it done in the salon, each of them came out amazing. I am very happy to have found this place and would absolutely recommend it. Pros: warm, friendly and clean environment, professional staff and talented stylists more
