Warning: Terrible experience 4/22/2012

Be prepared to pay way too much for services if you go to this salon. The prices listed on the internet are a far reach from what the real prices are when you walk into the salon and I'm not sure if my stylist was at fault or the website but I ended up paying hundreds more than I should have for a simple color service. My stylist talked me into a very expensive color service without mentioning the price, she sort of just did her own thing. Furthermore some of the girls at the front desk are extremely rude. I was standing at the front desk waiting to pay and leave and the two front desk girls were chatting while I waited there for at least 5 minutes. Also they have two people doing your hair: a stylist and a stylist-in-training. Terrible experience. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Pros: null Cons: null more

Ask for Cassie! 2/14/2012

Today, I had my hair cut and colored by a talented stylist, Cassie, at Ania Hair Studio & Spa of Albany. The entire experience was a treat. After some discussion and viewing of samples, Cassie suggested a color to compliment my complexion. Afterward, I described the cut I wished to have. Over the past year, I let my hair grow out. At Ania Hair Studio, I was hoping to get an updated flattering style appropriate for a woman in her 50's.\r \r Cassie worked miracles on my overly thick and dull hair. After the chocolate-brown color was meticulously applied, Cassie snipped and shaped my wavy locks. The result made me cry for joy. I looked and felt ten years younger. I now have an updated sophisticated style that frames my face and is age-appropriate. Thank you Cassie for making me look younger and making me feel so special. I am eager to return. more

Where was I ? 2/6/2011

If you would like to go to " the barber shop in brooklyn" with the ghetto attitude that goes on in the middle of the salon the go for it , as for me I'll never be going back !!!!! Get rid of ghetto in the middle of your salon ! more


I would like to thank everyone at ania's who gave me one of the best experiances iv had at a salon & spa! I was so impressed with the service i recived and all the treatments i had done. The salon and spa area's are clean and tidy and very comfortable and very relaxing. All the staff were very friendly and extreamly welcoming they could not have done more for me. I would recomend ania's hair and spa studio to everyone looking for a great hair cut, great beauty treatments and fantastic service at very reasonable and affordable prices.You would be mad to go anywhere else!\r Good job ania's keep up the good work and a huge thank you to all the staff!!! more

Overall Good Experience 12/7/2010

I had gone here to get my hair done for a formal event I was attending I made my hair appointment 4 hours prior to my event. My hair came out great but it took a little longer than I had expected for it to take that long. I think the girl I had was new she seemed very unsure of her work and how I was going to like it which would have been fine but she stopped every 5 min to ask me a question that she would have asked a teacher in cosmetology school. It made me very nervous but my hair came out great just very glad I allowed so much time. more

Ania Hair Studio & Spa gave me HERPES! 9/1/2010

I went to Ania Hair Studio & Spa on Aug 21, 2010 to have my makeup done for a friend's wedding. The makeup girl did not spray the lipstick or lipgloss she used on me with alcohol prior to application, but I assumed it didn't matter since she used an applicator. I have never had a blister or herpes before in my life. I didn't share drinks or kiss anyone other than my herpes free husband that weekend. I was concerned when my upper lip started to hurt Monday morning at work. I went to the bathroom, looked in the mirror and was shocked to see three tiny blisters on my top lip. Gestation period for herpes is 2-12 days. If you have gotten herpes within this time span after going to Ania, I suggest putting a tip into the Better Business Bureau. Shame on Ania for giving me herpes! Ania Hair Studio & Spa: Makeup for a day, HERPES for a lifetime. more

bad salon 3/18/2010

I've been there twice; once to get my hair cut and then to get my hair highlighted. The girl who cut my hair was very nice--did the style i wanted, etc. I asked her to take as much needed off to get the dead ends off--I looked at my hair a couple days later and there was clearly split ends; my hair is not particularly damaged either. When I got my hair highlighted one of the stylists plopped me in a chair-- didn't really speak to me, did my highlights in about 15 min and left me sitting there to work on other clients without explaining to me what she was doing..her service was HORRIBLE. Nice salon but 100% NOT worth the extraordinary prices they charge. more


I LOVE THIS SALON! most of the girls are very friendly and i will be going back. I had the Ouidad done there and i have never in my life found someone who knew how to cut my hair like this girl did. I think her name was Kristine, she had the same hair as i did so i felt at ease right away! She knew what she was talking about when i told her my problems, also her product knowledge was amazing!. She was right on key! I WILL TELL ALL MY CURLY FRIENDS! more

Great Stylists 11/24/2009

I have baby-fine hair, and for the first time ever, my hair actually works! It lays nicely and has body, it doesn't just hang there all scraggly like fine hair often does. They are a very large salon and provide spa services as well. They have stylists of all levels, so the price of services can vary greatly from one stylist to the next. Not sure if I can use names here, but I see the stylist that has been with Ania the longest and she is fantastic. One of her clients told me she drives from Buffalo (6 hours away) to have her hair cut! more

Would not recommend! 7/30/2009

This was a terrible place for a cut and color primarily because of service and cost, however, the quality is also not so great. I went to Ania a couple of years ago and was there nearly four hours for a cut and color. The stylist, I think her name was Rachel, had other clients she was taking care of at the same time and it was just so unbeliveably unprofessional. I would sit waiting for nearly an hour before I would see her again. When I went to check out I couldnt' believe that it was nearly $300. Needless to say I did not leave a tip and have not returned. A different time when I had gone for waxing, the girl had to keep apologizing because it was one of her first times waxing.....don't go here! more

So happy with my hair now! 7/7/2009

The employees were friendly, but not in your face. My stylist did an AMAZING job, fixing ALL of my hair concerns. Personally, for the service and quality I got, $37 was not too bad. I'm already saving up some money to go get some highlights done (as at Ania's, just like most places, color jobs ARE expensive) I especially loved that after my hair was washed/cond. it was cut, blown out, AND then she went back and cut my hair while it was dry to ensure everything flowed well and looked great : ) more

Don't bother looking anywhere else 11/18/2007

I just moved to the Albany area and went to some random place for a haircut -- BIG mistake. I had a girl named Candy who butchered my hair. I checked the internet the next day in an attempt to find a reputable place and came across Ania. I called and got an appt. for later that afternoon. The interior is modern, spacious and clean, and the girls at the desk are very friendly and professional. I explained to my stylist what had happened to my hair, she understood completely, and fixed it -- not just fixed it, but gave me possibly the best haircut I've ever had. I'm a guy and it was $30 for my haircut (took about 35 minutes), but will be $35 in the future since I will be requesting a specific stylist. Easily worth it. I don't think I'll ever go anywhere else... very highly recommended. more

A great haircut, but you will pay for it! 8/12/2006

Ania is top-notch. The atmosphere is wonderful. The stylists are very experienced and do an outstanding job. When you go to Ania you can pretty much be guaranteed that you will be looking pretty fantastic when you leave....but if you don't have money to burn, or if it wasn't a gift than I would say you can find a comparable stylist for less than 1/2 the price!! I knew Ania was expensive, but I also knew that they did a great job. One day, I woke up desperate to get my hair done- colored, highlighted and cut. I called a few places but of course couldn't get in on such short notice. I tried Ania and they actually had an appt so I jumped on it. I didn't price it first because I knew it was going to be a lot and I foolishly didn't want to "have" to cancel. So, I went in blindly. Well, my hair was gorgeous! It was cut right, and the perfect combination of color and highlight. I went to the desk to pay and it was $200!! How naive I was...I did not think it could cost so much. I usually get t more

I love this place! Great spa! 3/6/2006

This place is excellent. I always make an appointment when I am in town for the weekend. The stylists are very professional and do a great job. I like the modern decor and the relaxing atmosphere that this spa creates. The receptionists are very nice and all of the staff makes sure that you enjoy your visit. The only negative is that appointments tend to book up fast . It is moderately priced but it is definitely worth it. more
