Best

Consistent, high quality hair cut and color services. Exceptional staff (Yelena is the best!) who treat you like you're the princess every time you walk in their door.

I've tried Alma G a few times with different stylists each time. Everyone I've dealt with there is condescending and just not pleasant. I agree with the previous poster who said t...

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/3/2012

Alma G is simply the best! I absolutely adore her. Not only did she transform my hair with a haircut, she did it with ease. She has a vibrant personality and takes great care of you with any concerns you may have prior.I had Alopecia not too long ago and my hair was in delicate condition. Alma made sure she was gentle and she did an amazing job! \r \r \r \r Maritza is also the best for waxes! Before her, I could not get myself to get waxed regularly. Maritza has changed all that and she truly does a beautiful job each and every time. \r \r I look forward to all my appts at Alma G <3\r more

Alma is one talented chic! she has transformed my hair color my cut and texture enough to keep me from booking a visit to the plastic surgeon. Her cuts and color WORK, time after time. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/23/2012

Alma G is the third salon in NYC I have tried for extensions. I would never go anywhere else. Alma's rates for great lengths installation is incredibly competitive yet the quality of her work and her ability to move her nimble fingers so quickly that each bundle takes less than 45minutes- it is trudly incredible. Alma oversees the entire process herself, from the removal of the old hair, deep condition before installation of the new hair, and then of course trimming and styling before you leave the salon. My real hair is incredibly healthy, no bald spots, and is actually as long now as my 20 inch extensions with no breakage. I would recommend this salon to anyone who is looking for high quality yet affordable extensions. more

Wowza. Think I just found a new salon. 5/15/2012

Full disclosure -- I am very fond of the stylist I've been going to for the past two to three years, and I even followed her when she opened her own salon, but her location is fairly out of the way for me and, thus, I keep putting off appointments. So when I saw a Groupon Now for Alma G Salon, which is conveniently on my way home, I jumped at it.\r \r I had a last-minute appointment with Yelena, and all I can say is that she is a natural. I have got a LOT of slightly wavy hair, and I was a stylist's worst nightmare -- I had no idea what I wanted. But Yelena assessed what length would look good on me, (wisely) suggested fringe, and expertly gave me layers, taking a ton of bulk out of my hair. Now I can let my hair air-dry and I love the look.\r \r Everyone was very nice and welcoming. Even better, I did not get that off-putting ""upscale"" feeling from this upscale salon.\r \r The only thing is that I did wait for about 35 minutes, but I can't really complain about that because that's what happens. It's like going to the doctor or flying somewhere; the later in the day it is, the more of a chance there will be a wait. So it goes. more

I have rock star hair...in the best possible way! 6/9/2011

if you can afford it, even once, try Alma G. I arrived with a hair disaster, imposed by another ""upscale"" salon. Hair is ...my most important accessory, and I don't ordinarily pay up for it, even frequently coloring and even cutting my own. But I had an event to attend, was exhausted by the botch job and decided to give my self over to the experience. It is serene, service is impeccable, talent abounds. I have short hair, not Holly wood hair as so many of Alma's client's do, and I wasn't sure what she could do to make it exciting. I knew what I wanted, but others hadn't been able to grasp it, or were content with their cookie cutter routines. Well, I have to tell you, I look GORGEOUS, and that is the point, isn't it? more

Amazing Color, Pedicure and Massage! 12/30/2010

I have long, straight brown hair and wanted a colorist who would give me blond highlights, without brassy. Nina does a beautiful job and every time, I love the results. If you are looking for fantastic blond highlights, book an appointment with Nina. Also, I recently started getting my pedicures from Maritiza, and from now on, I'm traveling the distance to see her. She does an incredible job. From start to finish, she pays attention to detail, takes her time and makes my feet feel and look wonderful. Trust me - add on a 15 minute shoulder massage from her at the end. It's heaven! more

incredible color and style 12/19/2010

I have been going to Alma to get my highlights and hair cut for 8 years now. She does amazing work, Alma is so talented and really has a eye for what makes you look your best. She made me a blond 5 years ago and I wouldn't dream of ever turning back! And my color always looks so natural and healthy. Alma also does amazing up dos that look classy by with an edge. Very stylish!! I also get a facial at least once a month from Lordes, their facialist. She is amazing!! I always leave the Alma Salon looking my absolute best! more

Best place in town for a beautiful color service! 12/26/2009

I have been to many salons in Manhattan...some good experiences along with some bad ones. I came across The Alma salon and made a great decision by getting my services done there. My stylist was Krystina and she was absolutely amazing. She listened to me about my likes and dislikes and her consultation with me was very thorough. The end result was fabulous!! Pros: Very inviting and relaxing atmosphere more

She works magic 8/17/2009

I went in to the alma salon wanting a change and gave me some and better. Coming in with long brown hair I had grown tired of my look and wanted a change. Without hesitation she chopped my hair and made me a blonde. As a person with long thick hair whose spent many hours in salons dyeing it I've never seen someone work so fast. Had a glass of wine while getting done-up and was extremely happy with my results. I go to her every few weeks for a touch up and have been blonde ever since. I'll never go anywhere else. more

I love this place 8/17/2009

I get my haircut here all the time, I love this place! I wouldn't get my haircut anywere else. The staff are very friendly and welcoming they cut great hair and Lurdes gives the best facials. The best part about this place is that you can get everything done in one shot and by everything I mean a hircut a facial and a manicure/pedicure and believe me when I tell you this ""they do an amazing job""!!! more

No reason to look old 8/14/2009

But thanks to the Alma Salon she doesn't have to focus anymore n my gray hair but my eyes :) i finally convinced my wife to meet my hair dresser and now the whole family is a member. Pros: professionalism, warm hearted more

the woman who saved my hair 8/14/2009

i came from Italy to New York city to study for my business. My work has to do with fashion. So you can imagine how important my image is to me. I was desperate because after a month here my hair was turning into a mess. Someone at the gym recommended the Alma salon, at Alma personally. Until this day i thank this woman because Alma's magic hand saved my job and my hair in the same time. What can i say about her staff... can't never forget Jlee's great energy, Lourdes's perfect touch and her sweet assistant Kiti...if you want a real amazing experience of NY city hair this will be the perfect place to get your color and your cut done. What can i say i am sold i cant let anybody else touch my hair ever again included my old hair dresser. Pros: professional and friendly staff more

best experience of my life 8/14/2009

all i have to say is that i found myself walking inside this place...i never felt so confident and beautiful walking out of a hair salon before. Alma gave me the most amazing make over. I can't stop staring at myself in the mirror. I'm going through a difficult time of my life, but every time i go there she listens and always calls me to check up on me. I feel so much better and the service is to admire, all the girls are so dedicated and polite...their fashion sense makes me not only to take care of my self but even to go shopping more often. I highly recommend this place to anyone that is looking for real people to take care of them. Pros: hospitality, style, good environment, creativity Cons: wish i can go more often more
