rumor is by far one of the best salons in new york. you can have a very trendy white-blonde rocker cut or soft waves and long layers. shifa works with you peice by peice of hair, completely open to your thoughts. she cuts slowly and never too much. i have very thick hair, and ive never liked it down till she cut it. now, its light and flowing. Steven gave me the perfect hue of blonde and even suggested lightening my eyebrows(for free!). with there work i have never felt more beautiful. be warned: if you like you hair straight, brown, natural, or work-free, rumor is not your salon. these cuts and colors are for girls who want there hair to stand out and make a statement. its about experimentation and playfulness! yes, it is expensive, but everywhere in manhattan is! this is actually one of the better ones. but be prepared to drop $250-300 (tip included)for highlights and a cut. they do try and be nice to students. i was not given tip evelopes and i was given 20% off my color when i brought in a post card located outside the door on the street. so if your a first timer, you can save a bit if you bring one of those in!
Pros: beautiful work all-around!
