AVOID STEVEN 2/10/2012

AVOID STEVEN!! I went to him to JUST get my roots done. I have hi lites done and get them done uptown. I just had gotten back from a caribbean vacation so my hi lites were a bit lighter however when I sat in Steven""s chair I CLEARLY explained that I knew my hi lites were on the light side but I loved what the sun did to them and I DID NOT WANT THEM TOUCHED I JUST WANTED MY ROOTS DONE. He proceeded to agree with me and that ""he would just blend everything in"" and I again asked to ""not touch the hi lites as I liked how they looked"" Well Steven took it upon himself to do my roots and make my hi lites disappear so when I was done I was the same color ALL OVER AS MY ROOTS. I couldn't believe it, he knew I was upset and he proceeds to tell me that "" my hair looks a lot better this way"" I told him I was clear that I didn't want my hi lites touched and that I didn't want this. This guy clearly doesn't want to to do what THE CLIENT WANTS but does what he wants to do. He never apologized and had the audacity to tell me that my hi lites still looked the same as when I walked in !! DO NOT GO THIS INEXPERIENCED PERSON WHO HAILS FROM OREGON AND HAS NO CLUE NOR LISTENS TO HIS CLIENT. more

GO TO TAMI 5/2/2011

I've been eyeing Prive for years now, and finally I lucked out and bought a Gilt Certificate to the salon at the beginning of April. I recently had my appointment and was booked with Tami. From the minute I met her we hit it off. She sat and listened to me for almost 10 minutes explaining my hair (I have long, curly hair, that in NY Summers is no picnic) and what I was looking to achieve. She looked through my pictures of ideas patiently, promised she would ""Sort me out"", and got to work. Ryan who washed and massaged my hair set the mood for my experience (You're the best, Ryan!). When I got back to Tami she worked her magic, and I walked out of there with supermodel hair, I kid you not. She cut my locks wet, then went through and did another cleanup after my hair was dry. Hair technique aside, you will not meet anyone sweeter, more down to earth and easier to talk to. Tami, who recently moved from LA, comes highly recommended in my book, and with her long list of celebrity clients after an appointment with you will leave her chair feeling like you're on the A-list as well. I am going to book Tami again in June for a trim and a blowout for a special function. Tami, welcome to NYC! more

Jorge Luis and his amazing color! 4/13/2011

I was in NYC a few weeks ago and while I was there I had the amazing experience of sitting in Jorge Luis' chair. more

Awesome Stylist 6/22/2010

I have been to some of the best salons in New York and San Francisco and I have to say the best hair stylist is Patricia at Prive. As a beauty industry executive, how you look is essential. I get great compliments about my hair which is a true endorsement. I?d say she is more like a creative artist, and being a Brit, she really gets it. If you you want a quick cut, don?t go to Patricia, she gives individualized attention and takes her time, even a simple cut can last up to 90 minutes, so she?s into quality not quantity which is so rare these days. You feel pampered while she is doing your hair, and her focus is totally on your hair. She?ll meet with you first, find out who you are, what you want you and all the while making mental notes, before your hair is washed. Has an incredible eye with great technical expertise, and that she has developed over many years after extensive training from Vidal Sassoon and working with John Sahag. So yes, she gives a ?dry cut? most of the time and for those of you who don?t know what that is - it is the best type of cut you can get - and so few know how to do it. Now I really don?t have anything against the young stylists just starting out, but why take a chance - my hair is to important to take a gamble. Her hair cuts are easy to care for and yes, your hair looks just as good everyday as when it was first cut. The only down side is that she is a little pricey, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. There are so many great salons in NYC that may have a higher profile than Prive - but if you?re getting your haircut by the ?salon?s celebrity hair stylist? you may not get a great cut, after all, its not the salon, but the stylist that?s doing your hair! Pros: Individual attention, a cut that always looks great, Cons: takes awhile, a little pricey but worth it more

Lionel Renard 2/13/2010

Lionel Renard used his magic and was able to grasp the style I didn't know I was looking for. From long hair to a short edgy yet elegant haircut, I came out of this salon a new ""me""...a few highlights to enhance it all...never had as many compliments, a real ego boost :) Bonus: Sexy humble french man with great conversation!! Works great for bi-coastals : NY/ LA Pros: Beautiful Salon in the heart of Soho & LA more

Jorge Luis 2/9/2010

Beautiful salon in the heart of SoHo. Jorge Luis was absolutely wonderful! He listened to what I wanted and made suggestions according to my face, hair texture and the look I was going for. The highlights he gave me are gorgeous- even other well known stylists have admired my hair noting how great the highlights look!! They look very natural and have enhanced my look- exactly what I wanted!! I highly recommend him!! Pros: Best colorist more

Great place for RALAX 12/17/2009

Prive Salon from Manhattan, their staff is Very professional. They listen what you want, they give you their opinion, everything and everybody works perfect there. I went to Cosmetics, and I had a very Good facial, there is a girl very sweet, and worm, Elena is her name, she works Saturdays and Sundays, but she know very well what she do. She did very well her job and I am so happy. I am planning to go again for waxing and for facial but I will request only her. I trust her. I have only good word about Prive Salon. Thanks them. Pros: Best waxing in my life more

Jorge Luis at Prive 11/10/2009

Another trip from Palm Beach to Manhattan to meet with Jorge at Prive to have my color done - EXCELLENT JOB! The trip to Prive salon is a wonderful way to spend a few hours, it has a sophisticated vibe. My color is amazing and Jorge is wonderful to work with. I gave him my idea's and he gave me beautiful color. I look forward to coming up again soon to see Jorge. Pros: Best Colorist in Manhattan more

great place for hair color 10/29/2009

Jorge Luis at Prive is a fantastic colorist. The best color ever, he is friendly, fun and creative. The salon is beautiful and very professional. I highly recommend Jorge Luis for your next color. Pros: colorist are fabulous Cons: pricy more

Loved It! 4/28/2009

First time I went there, really to follow my stylist Donnie, who is a MASTER when it comes to styling/cutting hair. Love Love LOVEEEE him!! J.C. who is a colorist, is great as well. She didn't realize that I had washed my hair that morning and I wasn't aware that one should have a ""dirty"" head when getting colored or else it will burn you. My fault but cant complain. Color came out great. She is super friendly. All in all, the stylist and colorists all work well together, get along seemingly and makes the environment much better. Was not intimidated like I am in other salons. Over all...I found my head a new ""home' to go to when it needs its maintenance. Cons: Little pricey but worth it in the end. more

Poor Customer Service 4/1/2009

I am new to town and was looking for a great salon. A coleague of mine referred me to an excellent Japanese stylist. I have to say that the stylist gave me an excellent trendy cut. I would love to go to him again. Although the reception was very unpleasant. When I walked in to check in, not one of the receptionists bothered to look up to notice me. I stood waiting until they were finished with whatever work they looked so busy looking down at their computers. Finally when someone noticed me, I was treated as if I were a problem and nuisance. Upon checking out I was treated in the same regard. This salon has extremley poor customer service. I also witnessed others being treated the same way. Cons: Poor Customer Service more

they serve no smiles just cruelty on a cold dish 9/17/2008

Someone needs to write a realistic review of how unprofessional the reception desk is at Prive Salon. Not to mention there is talent in that salon but customer service is non existent. In a time when there are so many options around I am surprised they get the business they do. I was highly dissatisfied with the way I was greeted and treated while I was there. Not to mention I had this adorable French lady cut my hair, Frederique - she was really wonderful, but I will not go there again, due to the way the manager and her team went about. As I left the salon I could hear them referring to one of the clients in such a cruel and unprofessional manner that no business owner or operator should ever have to resort to that. I actually work for the press and will make sure that all my greatest friends know what they are up against, if they ever decide to enter that place. more

You have been WARNED.... 6/28/2008

i got the worst haircut at Prive Salon a couple of months ago, my hair still has not recovered from the fiasco. Pros: they are not pros here with cutting hair. Cons: they conned me out of $75 bucks. more

Yes!!! 4/20/2008

Another great haircut. Frederique is the only woman in New York that I trust with my difficult hair! I got to my appointment very late because the subways were all messed up (typical), but no one was mean or snippy about it. Frederique had to leave after she cut my hair, but Kelly blowdried it out beautifully. I always feel like the hottest girl in NY after coming out of Prive! more

As far as I can tell Tristan is the best stylist in the world 1/13/2008

I have lived in Houston, Austin, D.C., Paris, and now I live in San Francisco. I am south asian and have massive amounts of curly, wavy, crazy (stylist worst nightmare) hair. Nobody could ever get it right and I always have awkward haircuts. I started going to Tristan when he worked in Paris and I was living there. After that I moved to San Francisco and could never find a stylist. Now, I wait until I am in NYC to get Tristan to cut my hair. He knows what looks good on you and what will work with your hair. Since he's new in town his rates are still fairly reasonable too. more

I love Zoe but where did she go? 1/10/2008

I used to get my hair colored with Zoe at Prive. She was amazing. I stopped for a little while, and when I called to set up an appointment I was told she had left. Does anyone know where she went? more

Nails, Nails, by Dana 10/29/2007

My nails have never been the same after I received a manicure from Dana. I even took some of my girlfriends along the last time I went and they agreed; she had done such a great job. We were so disappointed to hear that she had left Prive. My girlfriends and I would love to have Dana back at Prive. more

Asher is amazing 3/21/2007

Okay, sorry I have to post, because I've been going to Asher for four years and I will never go to another stylist again. His cuts are the best I've ever gotten in my life (people stop me on the street to ask me where I get my hair cut), and I've referred most of my friends to him. Actually over dinner last week we were all sitting around gushing about how amazing his cuts are. I only have to get my hair cut once every three months because his cuts grow in so amazingly. Additionally, Prive is a great salon that never has an attitude, their staff is professional and attentive, but you definitely feel pampered while you are there. I highly recommend this salon, and especially Asher. (progressive stylists cut hair dry in order to really get the right look when your hair is actually how you wear it - dry. Asher has been cutting my hair dry for four years). more

What? 12/5/2006

Okay, I've been to some great stylist and I'm always up for meeting more. But, after my last fav gave me a mullet (granted it was very ""artistic""...ha, that's kinda funny) I knew I had to move on...I should've just told her no more mullets. I went to Ascher at Prive after a friend recommended him. She'd just gotten the cut the day before. I'm curious to hear what she has to say now about it. My hair looked fine at first, definitely nothing special but now it's like a light bulb and it's not getting better. I have great hair and usually I get great cuts to go along with it. To top it all off. I only get a cut once every 4 months. Yeah, my other stylists were that good. This is the first time in a long time where my friends just don't know what to say to me. At least with my stylish mullet my conservative friends were like, ""no no no"" but my sheik, trendy Brooklynites were in love. Now, not a word. He also cut my hair AFTER he dried and straightened it. What? My hair's never naturally straight. Made no sense to me and that trick certainly didn't work. I thought a good stylist was supposed to work with the natural wave of your hair. Weird. Yech, it's only been 6 weeks and I'm dying to get it cut again. Damn. Pros: The entire staff is very nice and prompt Cons: Bad cut, can't lie more
