Fabulous! 7/16/2011

I started coming to this salon about six months ago, on a recommendation from a friend. I'm usually very careful with new salons because I have definitely had some bad experiences in the past. So for my first visit I only scheduled a single process color. The entire experience was outstanding from the time I walked in and was greeted by the receptionist and offered some of the most amazing coffee (seriously, better than most cafes in the city), to my consultation which put me at ease that the colorist gets exactly what I want, to my time in the salon and the result. The entire vibe of the place is so great and relaxing. There's no pressure and everyone who works there really listens to what you want. I ended up getting highlights and a haircut in addition to my base color that day, and loved how my hair looked! I've been back a couple more times since and every experience has been as good as the first. All the other customers in the salon look happy as well (and their hair looks great!), so I know that it's not just me. I think that next time I'll start adding facials to my visits. I met the aesthetician and she seems like a doll! This place is a real gem! more

Best Haircut Ever! 9/1/2010

I did not realize that I've never had a good haircut before, until my visit to Eva Scrivo! I had simply resigned to having to struggle with my crazy curly hair and trying to make it behave with products of which I have a full closet. I hate blow drying my hair, so I hardly ever do it. I've tried many different salons over the years, including the so called "curly hair specialists." I thought that some of the haircuts I got in the past were actually pretty good, and that my hair was the enemy. Now that I finally have a great haircut, my hair has become my friend! During my consultation, the stylist explained that if curly hair is cut properly, it should just fall into place with minimal product when drying. That's exactly what my hair is doing now and my only regret is that I did not discover this salon earlier and saved myself years of struggle! more

Eva Scrivo Salon 7/17/2010

I stopped in to inquire about the prices and to see if they take walk ins. After listening to the price, i decided to leave. I immediately turned around and return to the Salon. , I had a date that evening and needed my hair done. The receptionist said to that I could have an intern and that would be cheaper, that even the interns were very good. And, if not, there would be someone there to fix it if need be. They appointed an intern for the color and a senior intern for the haircut. . It was one of the worse haircuts i ever received. I return and the same intern with a senior stylist try to fix it. He still did not understand. She tried to teach him but he still fail to perform the style I wanted. The senior stylist did not return. in addition, the staff made me feel like I did something wrong returning to the shop.. i don't believe anyone in that Salon can perform short hair cuts. Ev ery woman that was there had long hair. This is a long hair shop because they obviously cannot do short hair. Pros: Long Hair Cons: Short Hair more

Mira is Magnificent! 8/1/2009

If you want a look that is elegant, in great taste and you wish for beautiful hair color, then Mira is the expert to see. She is a great colorist, she is warm and welcoming and she greets all of her clients with good cheer. Mira is a gem, immensely talented in the art of hair color, and she also brings tremendous work ethic and incredibly high standards to her craft. She works on your color from start to finish, and you are not in danger of going unattended. If you want consistently beautiful hair color, well then make an appointment with Mira. You will not be disappointed! In terms of the salon, it is a beautiful, immaculately clean space, and everyone is friendly, including Eva herself. Added perks-hair blowouts that will make you feel as though you stepped out of a fashion magazine. Pros: Expert and Perfectionist Colorist with Flair Cons: none more

Donna for a new you! 5/12/2009

I have been a devoted Donna follower for years. I will have no one else touch my hair. It's that simple. This time I wanted a drastic change. Always hovering in the blonde shades, I wanted to dare a red. Donna set me at ease, gave me confidence and said go for it---of course, even though the color rocked, I was more shocked with the change after I got home. What had I done? Was this me? The next day I called Donna for some serious emotional hair therapy and counseling...the color was gorgeous, but could I pull it off? She gave me some great advice, suggested new clothes colors, makeup and assured me that if after a couple days I didn't like it, she would be more than happy to help me go back to my usual blonde....well I am thrilled to report that Donna was right! Everyone *LOVED* the new color, thought it suited me wonderfully well and with the right color combinations in makeup and clothes, it was amazing! Perhaps I could get used to this red afterall and 'rock it out' (as Donna said). I share this story to let you all know that Donna is not only the best stylist I have ever been to in terms of cut and color, she is a great listener and friend. Will I stay red forever? Who knows? But whatever I try next, I will certainly return to my hair therapist! Love her! Pros: Great color, cut, phenomenal hair/emotional therapy! Cons: absolutely none more

The Best 5/1/2009

I've been getting my haircut at Eva Scrivo for over a year now. My hair stylist is Hiro (now at the Meatpacking location) who is beyond fantastic. I have really thick, wavy hair, and I have had my fair share of hair-stylists in the past who have not known how to handle it. I can't express how perfect a job Hiro does every single time, except to say that I get tons of compliments on my hair. Next, I'm going for one of the facials, something I have not tried there yet. Everything about the salon is fantastic. I love the green tea and yummy little biscuits. The entire place just has a great feel, it's not pretentious - everyone is so friendly and you're constantly pampered. I think the prices are perfectly reasonable considering I always have a perfect haircut, and I enjoy every single minute of it. If I could go every week, I would! Pros: Perfect hair, being pampered, yummy tea & biscuits, Hiro Cons: No cons more

Wonderful environment; Friendly Service, Amazing Coffee! 10/14/2008

Kim Jones did my highlights this afternoon and she did an amazing job! She was extremely attentive and friendly. My hair looks great! I am so happy! Kim is so nice! :) Pros: Comfortable setting, friendly staff, amazing coffee and biscuits! Cons: Regular prices rather high more

The Best Salon 8/30/2008

After having received one bad haircut after another, I researched the top salons in New York City. Eva Scrivo popped up all over the place and received excellent reviews. I was also very impressed with Eva's website. About seven months ago I made my first appointment and Donna was my stylist. As soon as I walked in, I was made to feel very welcome and comfortable. I sat in Donna's chair and we had a consultation. Just by talking to her, I had a very positive feeling that this was going to be a great cut. I have to say my hair was in bad shape, bulky with choppy layers all over the place. After I was shampooed, I arrived back in Donna's chair and was asked if I wanted anything to drink. They served me the most delicious coffee in my own french press. Then Donna proceeded to work her magic. When she was done, my hair looked better than ever and I knew I had found my stylist! Each time I leave the salon, my hair looks better and better. The bulk, heaviness and choppiness I once had are now a distant memory. Thanks to Donna's expertise, I now love my hair again. I have never received so many compliments and I would highly recommend Eva Scrivo to everyone. Pros: Salon, staff, atmosphere Cons: None more

Amazing color, gorgeous salon 7/31/2008

I just had my color done for the first time at Eva Scrivo's new salon on Bond Street. Let me first say that the salon is absolutely stunning! I have never in my life seen a beauty salon so meticulously and tastefully designed. It looks like a huge and breath taking loft apartment with a lot of mirrors, or maybe an incredible event space. Not surprisingly, someone who puts so much effort and good taste into the appearance of her surroundings, puts just as much into her work. Eva herself did my color, and I can say without a doubt that it's by far the best I've ever had! The base color is a perfect ash blonde and every highlight is meticulously placed to look like I'd just spent the summer on the beach (but much better since nature just can't give you what a super talented artist can). I've since received so many compliments on my hair, even by women I've never met before! After Eva finished with my hair, she went downstairs to broadcast her beauty talk show on Sirius radio right from the lower level of her salon. I never knew that she had a radio show and was curious to listen, so I decided to get a manicure while it was played live on the main floor. It was very insightful with dozens of people calling in to ask questions, and I was amazed at how good Eva is on the radio! It was very cool listnening on the radio to the woman who just 20 minutes ago did such a fab job on my hair, right in her own salon. All in all a great experience and I'll be back soon! Pros: Stunning Salon, Amazing hair color, Friendly and warm staff Cons: none more

I'll have to be on a serious budget for the next couple months... 4/17/2008

I went to get my hair highlighted and cut as a special treat for myself about a month ago and walked out spending almost $700, and not by choice. When I called to make my appt., I was given appts. with both Master Stylists (Scott and Alyson). I had never been before, so I had no preference in who I was to see. That was fine, but what I REALLY SHOULD HAVE ASKED is, how much this was going to cost me? Although my highlights are nice and I love my cut, I was just absolutely upset about how much these things cost me, and not to mention how I was strong-armed into buying products after it was all over. I know it's New York and all, but I was expecting to pay no more than $300, maybe $350 tops, for everything. I usually pay $135-$150 for everything at another salon. Will definitely not go back because it's just so outrageously expensive to have Scott and Alyson work on my hair. I cried when I got home, not because my hair looked nice, but at the thought of how much I had just spent. I'm giving it 2 stars as an average (4 stars for Scott and Alyson and no stars for price). Pros: Friendly Staff Cons: Outrageously Crazy Expensive more

Best salon I've ever been to 4/2/2008

I mistakenly posted this under the Bond Street location.... so I reposted it here. I've been at customer at Eva Scrivo for over a year now. I initially went to see Eva, the owner, for a color correction due to a horrible dye job at my previous salon and thought it would be a one time splurge to get myself back on track with a good color. But, Eva did such a good job with my color and cut that I'm now hooked on her salon's services. They are a little on the expensive side, but the quality is top notch -- hence why I've gone back ever since. While there are many talented stylists there, lately I've been seeing Hiro and he does a wonderful job with cuts! He takes a lot of time going over what would look good on you before he starts cutting, and is really patient and explains what he's doing throughout the cut (I'm very particular and do ask questions so I like that he doesn't take offense at this!) I also like that when he's blowing your hair dry, he shows you how to do it so you can achieve the same look at home. He's really an excellent addition to the salon. I've never written a review before, but my last cut was so great that I had to post. I highly recommend this salon to anyone who is bored with their current style and needs a change! Pros: talented staff, expertise, range of services Cons: none really.... more

The AcuFacials 2/29/2008

The AcuFacial treatments are the best! Acupuncture and/or acupunture plus a facial- I've had them both and love them equally. After one treatment my skin looked and felt better than I've ever seen it> I bought the acufacial resculpting package to lift my sagging facial muscles and reduce my fine lines and wrinkles. Not only do I look great after my treatments I also feel relaxed. I have also tried the acupressure ear seeds for weight loss and I can't believe it, but it's working. Tthe acupuncturist is gentle and knowledgable. She created the AcuFacial technique and teaches it to other acupuncturists- so I know that I am in experienced hands. The environment at Eva Scrivo Salon is also friendly and the staff make you feel special and cared for. I highly recommend this expereince to anyone. more

Best Hair Cut, Color, Overall Experiance ever!!! 12/11/2007

I have had my hair colored for over 10 years now and it has never really came out the color I wanted. Well I decided to try this salon out because I read lots of great reviews, and let me tell you, it was the best decision that I have ever made. My hairstylist was Erica, she is just soooo fantastic, she gave me the color and the highlights that I never imagined I could have, and a gorgeous haircut. Also, my hair naturally has that weird curly (not pretty) shape, and it used to be a pain to try to dry and make it look nice, so I used to just let it air dry and look horrible, well she styled my hair sooo well that I bought some of the products that she used on me (btw she was not pushing them on me whatsoever!) and I watched how she dried my hair and now, I do it myself and it really looks perfect! I highly recommend Erica, she is fantastic and she will make you look fabulous!!! Pros: Great everything! Cons: Nothing!! more

Exquisite sums it up! 9/10/2007

I took a 2 1/2 hour bus ride to NY to visit Eva Scrivo Salon. I knew Eva would finally be the stylist to give me the haircut I've always dreamed of! Eva has many celebrities and famous people as her clients. I am nowhere near famous, but Eva made me feel like a movie star when I walked out of her salon. She truly cares for her clients. I didn't feel intimidated at all. The shop is meticulously clean and organized with wonderful products. Eva's staff is made up of truly professional and beautiful people. I've already scheduled my next hair appointment with Eva and am so looking forward to it! Pros: You'll leave looking wonderful and feeling fantastic! Cons: Cons??? Won't find them here! more

Dude, Where's My Stylists? 7/29/2007

Where are Alyson and Scott? I called to make an appointment and they informed me that Alyson and Scott are no longer there but refuse to tell me where they are. Of course they recommended "amazing" people but I asked to speak with the owner and they still won't tell me where they are. Something is sketchy as the Eva Scrivo salon and I'm not going to trust anyone else with my curly red hair. more

A.C. - superb stylist, the best cut ever 7/28/2007

A.C. is terrific. I came to A.C. with a very boring, blah haircut. During our consultation, he listented to me very carefully and offered some great advice. He is extremely meticulous, very patient, and has a great eye. End result, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE my hair. Bonus, he is a great stylist too. Usually when I leave a salon, my hair is poofy and un-flattering and I go home immediately to wash it. He styled my hair and it looked awesome - totally natural and flatterring, I looked HOT! thanks AC, you are awesome!! Pros: A.C. listents, meticulous workmanship, patient, pleasant to work with more

the BEST haircut 7/12/2007

My experience was fabulous! I had been neglecting my hair for some time and needed a color and style makeover. Luckily, someone recommended Eva Scrivo Salon to me. Antonio Cantillano cut and styled my hair and did an amazing job! i recommend that everyone take a trip to this salon and have the same great expeirence as i did. I promise it's worth it! more

Unhappy but hopeful 7/5/2007

I visited the Eva Scrivo salon for the first time a few weeks ago. The salon is beautiful and I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist. I only waited a few minutes before I my stylist was ready to see me (very rare occurrence for a NY salon). I explained to the stylist the basic idea of the style I was looking for - keep most of the length and keep it low maintenence. I was a bit surprised she was using the razor on my hair, as it is already fine - but when she was done, it seemed OK. I liked (but didn't love) the cut but, like most cuts, you get a true feel for them for a day or two when you wash and style yourself. Unfortunately, when I made my first attempt drying and styling my new hair cut, I was horrified by the result! My ends were frizzy and stringy. My hair was weighed down by all the products the stylist insisted I needed and I couldn't get it to look even close to the style that I had when I left the salon that day. I was leaving to go out of town the next day and wound up going to the salon in the hotel to fix the cut. For the amount of money I spent on the cut and then the products, you can imagine my disappointment. Now that I am back in town, I am going to go back when this cut grows out. I have heard too many great things about the salon to not at least give it a second shot. But this time, I think I will see a different stylist. I'll post again and let you know how trip #2 goes! more
