The Best Hair Extentions in NYC! 1/19/2011

Catherine does a superb job at extentions. I looked all over and finally found someone that does an excellent job. My extentions last for at least 6-7 weeks. I just love them. She also does great color and cuts. I will have to say Catherine is such a pleasure to spend 2-3 hours with. She is patient and a real professional with very fair prices. If you want the best and don't want to feel like you have been taken to the bank by the high prices of NYC, you must go to the best and that is by far Catherine. 5 Stars !!!! more

Saved my Hair! 1/4/2011

I first went to Catherine 2 years ago after having extensions put in at a local salon. I had lost around 50% of my hair from having them put in improperly by a person who claimed to be an expert. I was at a loss at what to do, my hair went from being full and about 4 inches below my shoulder to a chin length bob cut with bald patches in back and so thinned out you could see my scalp in alot of places. I only had the extensions for about 5 months (changed them once at 3 month mark an noticed i was missing alot of hair but salon kept insisting it was fine). Catherine was very sympathetic and understood how devasted I was. My only option was to wear a clip in piece that would hide the bald/thinning areas until my hair started filling out. She made me a custom piece, yes I hated the feeling of snapping my hair in every morning, but it was my only alternative. Catherine matched it perfectly in color. After about 6 months she was able to use a track system rather than clip in and again matched my hair perfectly. After a year, I completely got rid of the hair piece and had healthy, full, hair again. She carefully cut just enough to keep my hair healthy while all the new hair was growing in from my scalp. She maintained my color perfectly, (which is not easy since I am a natural brunette but I color it blonde). My hair is now midway down my back, healthy, full and in the best condition ever thanks to Catherine. She put the integrity of my hair first and listened to what I wanted. She is one of the only hairdressers I have ever went to that actually listens when you tell them what you want in a cut/color and appreciates long hair and doesn't automatically want to chop it off. She is not local to me but so worth the travel and fighting for NYC parking. Thanks Catherine! more

Wow!!! 10/6/2010

The best thing I've ever done for my career!!! My hair is beautiful. Color is perfect. Thanks again Catherine! more

I Am Thrilled! 10/5/2010

I Am Thrilled!!!\r After wearing bonded hair extensions for a few years, my hair is extremely thinned out and broke. I came to Catherine who made a custom clip in piece that I am thrilled with. The hair color matches perfect and is shiny and gorgeous. I can now grow my own hair back and let it get healthy while still “looking” long and healthy. \r more

Love My New Hair! 9/15/2010

I can’t stop looking at my new hair! I have heavy highlighted blond hair. Catherine made an extension to fill out my ends and give me volume. What an improvement – the hair color and texture matches perfect and truly looks natural. Thank you Catherine! more

Best Hair Extensions 8/2/2010

I am very happy with my new extensions. The hair blends in perfect and is soft and shiny. I was very impressed by the time taken at the consultation to determine which method would work best for me and to explain all the pros and cons. Catherine is very knowledgeable and thorough. I highly recommend. Pros: Professional, thorough, knowledgeable more

Hair Extensions 6/7/2010

I love my new seamless extensions! I previously had a weave which irritated my scalp. I then found Catherine who insisted I remove the weave and use a removable wire extension so my hair and scalp could recover. I really wanted something that didn’t come out but Catherine insisted I give my hair a break - I had to wait 6 months. She just attached Platinum seamless extensions – my hair is very fine – they just blend in perfectly and feel like my own hair! I can’t feel anything and you would never know I had extensions. Pros: Innovative, Integrity more

Highly recommend! 6/7/2010

Finally, someone who is honest and doesn’t try to “sell”……… Pros: Professional, knowledgeable more

Highly Recommended! 1/25/2010

I went to Catherine to do my weave. She is very precise and conscientious. She does a much finer version of the typical corn row tracks. I find the track much more comfortable and flatter. It also has held in longer (6 weeks). The salon has a very friendly, low key – comfortable vibe – no pressure and it is a pleasure to go there and be taken care of. I highly recommend it! Pros: Job well done more

Hair Extensions 1/12/2010

I’ve been going to Catherine for my extensions for about 6 months now. She added about 5-6 inches to my own shoulder length hair. The extension hair is beautiful, shiny, healthy, and matches my hair perfect. She is also taking care of my own hair with regular trims. It is growing out without breaking at the ends like before. Catherine really takes the time to teach me everything possible to maintain the extension and my own hair. I am very happy with her work and highly recommend her.\r Pros: Great Care more

I Love My Extensions! 1/6/2010

Catherine made a removable ""fill"" extension which matches my hair perfect. It made all the difference - my ends look full and longer. No one would ever know unless you knew me before. Impressive! Pros: Everything more

Weave not done well 11/11/2009

Great Hair! 10/31/2009

10/31/09\r I started getting extensions with Catherine 3 years ago. I have fine, thin, frizzy curly hair that breaks easily and would only grow to shoulder length. We started with 2 tracks of hair to achieve length to my lower middle back. Catherine insisted I get small trims on my hair, use good products and basically take good care of my own hair. I eventually got to one track of hair to fill out my ends and add a few inches as my own hair grew to about 2-3 inches past my shoulders. My hair was still fine, frizzy, and unruly but it was healthier and did grow some. Catherine kept mentioning the Coppola Keratin treatment for my hair and that it would make my hair controllable, take out the frizz, and fill in my weak fragile ends. I was hesitant but she kept bringing it up so I finally tried it. OMG! - Coppola changed my life. I’ve since repeated the treatment 3 times. My hair doesn’t frizz ever – it is soft, wavy, and does not puff out like it use to. I let it air dry and go. I still wear 1 piece of hair extension to thicken up my hair - but my own hair is now to the middle of my back and healthy. It’s like I have someone else’s hair! Catherine goes above and beyond – truly amazing!\r Pros: Best Extensions in the States! more

BAD, BAD, BAD 10/10/2009

VERY , VERY BAD quality of work. Catherine does not listen to a client, VERY poor service and DAMAGING to your hair. I had my extensions done only to have it removed because of EXTREME irritation at the starting sites of the extension. The salon where I had them removed, ALL extension specialists ( 3 at the moment) were horrified and the tightness the extensions were put in : literally ripping my hair out. I have SCABS all over my head at the moment, but at least I reacted fast enough not to have permanent damage. I've had extensions before and NEVER had any problems. I do NOT have a sensitive skull she was trying so hard to convince me I did. ( confirmed at the BETTER place) The one poor review that was in before mine - TAKE IT INTO ACCOUNT. I read Catherine's reply to it and thought that is was just an angry customer raveling. I WISH i listened. Go to a more expensive place. $800 later all I have is scabs on my head, RUINED weave ( she cut it ,so it completely unraveled , leaving me with ""gorgeous"" tails of hair all over wherever I went) , and NO extensions. I'll need to wait a few weeks for my head to heal , and THEN I am going to go to a more reputable place. CAtherine talks about ""properly put it extensions that do not damage hair"", ""proper technique"", and does NONE of those. DO NOT GO if you want to KEEP YOUR HAIR. more

Catherine will make your dreams come true! 10/7/2009

Catherine is very experienced and will always go above and beyond to create the hair you've always wanted. I have had extensions for about six months now and I only wish I had found her sooner. I love my hair: the quality and the color. It is also not as pricey as most other places are. I highly recommend Custom Hair by Catherine! Pros: Friendly, listens to your requests, experienced, creative more

My hair is healthier than ever! 10/5/2009

Catherines work is top notch! I trust Catherine 100% to protect the quality and health of my hair. Catherine cuts, and highlights my hair every 8 week. I recently tried the Kopolla keratin protein treatment which I loved over the summer months. My hair texture is fine & frizzy and this made my hair smooth shiny. I had a truly frizz free summer.\r Catherine also made me a custom hair piece that integrates with the color & texture of my hair perfectly! It gives me fullness, it can be washed, curled, and is so easy to put in. I'm proof that overpaying in pricey salons is a huge waste of money. They really don't take care of your hair. Thanks Catherine! more

Hair Weave left me with a bald spot 9/30/2009

Had a hair weave from Catherine. Two months later when I removed the hair, I had a bald spot. To this day, I still have a bald spot. The hair weaves are not done well at her salon. \r \r She was also rued, and the hair quality is very poor. Pros: None that I can think of Cons: Hair Weaves more

Expert color and cut 8/26/2009

Catherine is a fantastic colorist and hairstylist. She always makes my hair the perfect shade of blonde! Pros: Great colorist, convenient location more

Very high quality hair 5/12/2008

I consulted with Catherine regarding clip-in hair extensions for my wedding abroad. Although my very fine and slippery hair would not normally take extensions very well for a variety of reasons, she personally made me a clip-in with gorgeous, very high quality, soft hair that worked well with my own and taught me how I can use it without it sliding out. I have yet to use it for my wedding, but after I do, Catherine also offered to change the insertion method to invisible wire so that I can use it more easily on my own on a casual/daily basis. She obviously cares very much about the product and her clients! Thank you!!! Pros: Quality of hair, Catherine's expertise and skill Cons: You do pay for such high quality hair more

Restored my Hair and Self esteem 1/24/2008

I went to get a long layered cut on my almost waist length hair and ended up with chopped up, neck length hair??I found Catherine through google/citysearch reviews which are dead on! I now have long layered hair while my own hair is growing out. I also intend to stay with Catherine for haircuts and styling after my own hair grows out. She is a pro! Pros: I look great! more
