Avi's cut and style is better than the one I got for years on Madison Ave. on the Upper East Side at a salon that charged $200.00 (no color, just cut and style). I am thrilled to...


Avi is a good guy, and he has cut my hair twice, but just know going in that his idea of styled hair is extremely short. For men, he uses electric hair trimmer rather than scissor...

Color 9/8/2010

Specializing in color correction? Please! He cannot even do something as simple as a single process color without screwing it up. Avi is a nice guy, but, has no idea what he is doing. Everyone else on his staff seems as inexperienced as he is. My advice, based on my own experience, is to go somewhere else. This salon will only waste your money and time- and you will end up having to go somewhere else any way to fix his mistakes. more

Straightening 6/30/2010

He burnt my wives scalp, just like the previous user her hair is falling off by strands. We wake up in the morning and her pillow is covered in hair, and let's not talk about when she combs her hair. We went to a dermatologist who confirmed that he burnt her scalp and totally damaged her hair. And he charged 450 dollars for this!!!!!! He doesn't even give good men haircuts either., Pros: Clean? Cons: No idea what he is doing more

Bad Japanesse straightening 6/1/2010

I got a japanesse straigntening a year ago, and it ws great cheap and not damaging to my hair. This happened on chinatown. more

Guys - think twice before going here 3/20/2010

Avi is a good guy, and he has cut my hair twice, but just know going in that his idea of styled hair is extremely short. For men, he uses electric hair trimmer rather than scissors, and I walked out of there looking like I was being deployed to Iraq. The first haircut I had with him wasnt bad, but it was short, and I even told him not to go as short this time. He left a little more hair than if he had shaved my head - it's that short. Be warned... And no, I wont be going back. There are a lot of other choices in FiDi. more

Better than Madison Ave. 6/5/2009

Avi's cut and style is better than the one I got for years on Madison Ave. on the Upper East Side at a salon that charged $200.00 (no color, just cut and style). I am thrilled to have Avi doing my hair. He's a great guy with excellent technique. My daughter came up from D.C. and he cut her hair in an entirely different style (she went from mid-length to short hair). She looks darling, loves it, and despairs that she doesn't live closer. This guy is a gem. You won't be disappointed. more

Great Salon 3/3/2009

Avi is great, and his staff as well. The quality of work that is done is amazing. The staff is very nice and just spending time there is very relaxing. Avi takes time and does not rush, to make sure you are completely and totally satisfied when you walk out of there. I would def recommend this salon!!! more

Nice but slow 2/24/2009

Avi is a great guy, I always like his hiarcuts and his color work too. However... Avi, you are so slooooow. C'mon, chop-chop, this is New York, you got to get a little faster! It alsmot feels like you're sleeping. I can't spend 1.5 hours on a haircut, this is getting on my last nerve. Pros: Good Service Cons: SLOW more

Avi is good but........ 1/22/2009

I have been going to this salon for a while. Avi is a lovely guy but it always takes so long to have a color and cut. Staff in the salon seem to come and go very frequently, not only does Avi cut , color and style himself he insists upon washing hair as well rather than leave it to another staff member, this means that clients build up, it has taken me more than 3hrs on some occasions. Pros: Avi is a nice guy and good stylist Cons: Long waiting times and poor color quality more

finally found a great salon !!!!!!!!!!!! 11/22/2008

I've been going to alot of hair salons in the city and out of state and nothing could compare to Avi's work! He's amazing when it comes down to work with a persons hair. The first second i come into the salon he spotted me and said i know exactly what i should do to your hair to make u feel beautiful!!!!! If you want a great haircut and color go visit AVI he was unbelievable, and before you leave her chair she makes you feel incredible!!! He is extremely friendly and the salon is beautiful!! AVI is one of the best stylists and colorist in the city, so if you want a great haircut definitely go see AVI !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pros: Great highlights, Location, nice atmosphere, inexpensive more


Pros: great place Cons: NO CONS more

The best haircut ever 10/22/2008

Hi my name is Mitchell and I'm a touring artist. I came to Avi's Salon last week in a bit of a hurry. Although I was in hurry I was not looking for a rushed job. I have long thick hair and like for it to be very textorized and very layered. They did a great job I was impressed! looking forward to next time. Pros: great hair cut more

Amazinggggggggg Highlightssssssssssss!!! 10/22/2008

I came into Avi's Salon this morning consulted with a stylist by the name of Tayla and she recommended me to do sunlights, (it's highlights without bleach) they came out absolutely beautiful! I was very impressed with my hair, it looked very shiny and healthy. The service was very welcoming and reasonably priced. I used to dish out a ton of money on highlights and haircuts but not nearly as good as this time and I only payed half the price I'm used to. I absolutely loved it and I plan on seeing Tayla again!!! Pros: Everything Cons: Travel time but totally worth it! more

WORTH IT !!!!!!! 9/6/2008

For the first time I went in for their specials and it definitelly worth a try! My hair was a major dissaster from coloring and highlighting it at the different salons. At AVI's salon I've got the MOST AMAIZING hair color, cut and conditioning TREATMENT EVER, my hair now feels soft and silky. I like the fact that stylists are not pushy about selling you services are not necessary for your hair. For everyone who want to have HEALTHY SHINY AND SILKY HAIR TRY ARTISTIK SALON!!!!! Pros: PROFESIONAL STYLISTS, CLEAN SALON !!!!!!!!! more

stylish beauty shop, expert color & cut, even make a good cup of coffee 9/6/2008

the staff is so cool, (and friendly) that there is never even a hint of the fact that i am probably (always, when i am there) the oldest person in the place. this is something i have been conscious of in recent years going into any boutiquey type place in manhattan, and am always a little sensitive to it. anyway, a year or so ago when i was with one of my very chic (and younger) nyc friends, i noticed she had new haircut and it looked fabulous. i don't know why, but i wrote down the name of the shop she went to and decided that the hour long train ride into the city and the challenge of a new hair style was what i wanted. i made an appointment at avi golan Hair Experience, with the ""operator at the first station on the right"" and have been doing so ever since. he is fabulous. i've never been disappointed and feel younger for having done so. more

Hair cut !!! 9/4/2008

I recently went to Salon AVI for the first time about 3 weeks ago and went to avi for a hair cut. I was a little nervous at first because I feel like I haven't been able to find a good stylist for a long time. In short , avi was fantastic - it was a very quick haircut, but it's the best I've had in ages - really really well done. I'm very happy, it suits my face and falls nicely. I specifically signed up on citysearch just to write this review because I felt he really deserved it. !!!!!!!! Pros: I AM IN LOVE WITH AVI ....or at least what he did to my hair!!! more


I went there and it was the best color and haircut I?ve had in years. I had a lot of compliments for the first time ever about my hair from family and friends. The salon is well organized, the staff is very friendly and the price is convenient. For sure I will be back and recommend the salon to my friends and all of you more


I've never written a complaint on anyplace before but I just couldn't let this go. This place is terrible. Very unprofessional. The salon is pretty but never judge a book by it's cover. I should of known. None of the other clients looked happy either. Save your money. Don't waste your time. Pros: PRETTY SALON Cons: worst service - worst haircut - worst staff more

Unending compliments on my hair!!! 8/24/2008

I went into this salon with very little idea of what I wanted. I told them I wanted something completely different but that low-maintenance is essential. I walked out with the best cut ever! It is very chic and professional and yet incredibly cute. And the best thing is I spend all of 2 seconds on it every morning! I just shower and go! And I get compliments all the time. They gave me more than I could have ever expected! Oh...and not only is the cut great, but the salon itself is amazing. So cute and classy. And everyone there is super nice. I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! more
