I visited Parlor last winter for a single process with Gwen. After years with a colorist on Long Island, I figured it was high time that I actually get my hair colored by someone closer to home. Due to nerves, I figured my best bet was to book with the owner, since she's been in the business for years and, naturally, would be good at what she does. Gwen was such a sweetheart - really knowledgeable, offered me wine, which was AWESOME, and her assistant was a really nice guy. But overall, my service was just okay. The space is nice, the people are nice, but my hair turned out much darker than I wanted, I was not offered a glaze (which I think is key), and the blowdry the assistant gave me was atrocious. I decided not to go back mostly because I can't afford to pay extra $$ to have my color done by the owner, but also because I don't like the idea of an assistant doing my blowout and my colorist shuttling back and forth between clients. I wouldn't discourage others from coming here - they are such nice people and clearly passionate about what they do - I guess it just wasn't the place for me.
Pros: Warm, welcoming salon.
Cons: A bit pricey; service not as fantastic as I had hoped for.
