My friend recommended I go see Lauren at Extravaganza to get my brows done. I was pretty happy with my shape but was open to ideas on what would look best on my face. The brows ...

Love my Hair Extensions !!! 12/5/2011

I do my hair extensions for years and i am afraid to trust the new places. This time I forgot to make an appointment in my salon and I decided to stop by in this salon. I came out very happy and satisfied. Peter and Sharon - two guys were amazing, the hair extensions were the best quality and the stylists matched the most right colors ! I got a very good massage of scalp and shampoo from their assistant Anna. I will never go to any other place, but to Extravaganza. And it`s closer to my house:) The best place ever for the Hair Extensions !!!!!!!!!! more

Great cut. 10/16/2011

I have been having my hair cut by Peter at Extravaganza since the store opened, 4 or 5 years ago. I always get a great cut, and he always manage to adjust to my crazy schedule. I travel for business and need to know I don't need to worry about my hair. The cut is so good, when I forgot my hairbrush on my last trip, I was still able to wash my hair, run my hands through it, and still look good! Another hairstylist accommodated my friend, when she was visiting New York, and my friend was very happy as well. Strongly recommend. more

Fabulous 4/8/2011

I moved to the area in August and have been needing to find a new stylist. Of course, like many people, I HATE trying out new stylists. But after one too many days of wearing my hair in a chignon/ponytail/bun, I finally decided to bite the bullet. After doing a search for salons in the neighborhood, I gave Extravaganza a try--and I was very pleased! Sharon was my stylist, and I loved him. He was friendly but not too chatty, and took his time with my hair. The vibe was hip but very fun and relaxed! I'll definitely be going back. Thanks, Sharon! PS Robbie, who washed my hair, was very nice. (I hope I got his name right!) more

Amazing surprise! 4/6/2011

Normally I pay top dollar to get my hair done. I wandered into this salon to kill some time and figured I would just get a blow-out. They were running a special- $75 for color, highlights, and a gloss treatment. They were also running a 30% off for your first visit special on top of that! I figured this was going to be a big mistake, but as I desperately needed my hair colored, I figured I would go for it! Sharon was reassuring and sweet but most importantly, he did an amazing job!!!! My hair looked better than it usually does after the salon and it cost a fraction of the price. It was such a fantastic experience and I can't wait to go back again and again and again!!! more

OMGGGG! Very happy! 4/4/2011

i just moved to the area and needed to find a new colorist so made an appointment at Extravaganza with Judith based on all the great reviews....and I wasn't disappointed. The salon is very hip ,cool but at the same time everyone is so friendly! Judith was amazing...such a great young lady and made my color look so beautiful that I ended up getting a cut too. This is a big deal because I have been going to the same stylist for 10 years so no one else has cut my hair in that time period, only different colorists. But I definitely felt the TRUST with Judith and walked out looking gorgeous and feeling so very pampered. Judith is my new go to look fabulous! more

Jennifer is amazing! 3/21/2011

i was recommended to Extravaganza by few ppl so one day i decided to schedule an app to get my hair color and haircut. I was recommended to see Jennifer. I was very nervous when i sat in her chair because i was looking for a change but didn't know exactly what i wanted,she took her time with me . Omg when she finished working on my hair , i didn't recognize myself. Beautiful highlights and an amazing haircut! Thanks Jen for making me so beautiful! cant wait to see her again! more

love my hair 12/22/2010

I came here for a much needed haircut. My hair was becoming long and blah. peter sat me down and asked me what I wanted. I say give me a "cute bob". He gave me a few options - sleek? layered? Well, I wanted to be able to flip my hair out if I wanted. I want a little bit of versatility but a cut that would be wash and ready-to-go. I'm so satisified with my haircut. You can clearly see the layering and the hair frames my face just right. Wow, this was the best $85 I've ever spent on a haircut. peter spent 1-1/2 hours cutting my hair. The delicate layers fall just right and the weight on my shoulders has been lifted. It seemed like he chopped off a lot of my hair in the back but the layers are not wispy. peter knows hair! I highly recommend him. The salon is clean and well lite. I shall return when I need another cut. more

best color and hair cut 10/17/2010

by andbea at Citysearch Today I got the best haircut and color of my life! Tim is absolutely amazing. He spends the time to make sure you both agree what look you want and then he works his magic. He also is just about the nicest person in the world too. The front desk people are wonderful also. As soon as you walk in their great smiles greet you and make you feel right at home. I highly recommend ariel for a fabulous experience. more

Horrible never again 10/13/2010

I'm writing this with tears in my eyes. I went to extravaganza to highlights, color, and cut my hair, and now im crying. Ariel made my roots orange, the highlights are white and very far from my roots my hair is breaken off, my hair is a mess. my hair cut is all uneven, he made my hair frizzy. The most horrible experience ever. He did not listen to me and he wouldn't stop talking about himself and his co-workers. I will never, never, never ever go there again. more

They listen!! 9/21/2010

I'm weird about my hair. I have an Irish father, a Black mother, and hair that no one has ever been able to figure out. Under inexperienced hands, it's either frizzy and puffy or limp and greasy. Enter Peter The Amazing. I had been cutting my own hair since I was 14 after experiencing disappointment over and over again (at both black AND white salons) but I got sick of just trimming the ends and having a shapeless 'do. The first thing Peter did was sit me down and ASK ME WHAT I WANTED. Not only did he listen, he grabbed locks of my hair and held them up for me, eliciting whether such and such length was what I was describing. Then he cut my hair exactly like I had asked him to! Shocking. I also can be sort of an awkward person (haha - can't we all) and there had been times in the past when I was searching around in my brain for things to talk about with the stylist. This was not the case with Peter. Easygoing, personable, friendly, professional. LOVE HIM! Go to this salon! more

peter is amazing 9/18/2010

This place is wonderful in general, but I must say without a doubt that peter is truly the star stylist. he has been cutting my hair for three years and I will go nowhere else (once I tried getting by without him, to scary and upsetting results...). Not only does he give a killer trim, he's a wonderful person, always so positive and bubbly that you can't help but leave feeling totally empowered and fabulous. I send everyone I talk to who is in the market for a new hairdresser to him. TRUST ME, stick with peter, you won't be disappointed. more

Do not go to this salon for Hair Extensions! 9/13/2010

I recently went to Peter for hair extensions. I have had extensions in the past so know what to expect by way of pain and adjustment to the extensions. When I left the salon with the professional blow out, they looked really nice. Once I washed and blow dried my hair on my own, the extensions were incredibly noticeable. I have curly dark brown hair - the extensions that were added to my hair were straight and black. In the slightest bit of humidity, my natural hair would curl up, while the extensions would remain completely straight. I could not put my hair back - because they were several extensions that were visible on the sides of my head making me very self conscious. I honestly could have lived and dealt with all of this but after about a week of wearing the extensions, my head started itching uncontrollably, my scalp became extremely irritated, and they started to rip out my natural hair. When I went to the salon to discuss these issues, Peter told me that this was normal for hair to be ripped out and that he could put a solution in my hair for the itching. As I've said before, I've had hair extensions several times in the past, and this type of pain and discomfort are never normal. He also said that he could dye the hair to match my natural color - I have plain dark brown hair that has never been dyed. Why would i want to start this process now when he could have just ordered the correct color from the beginning? I went to another salon (one that specializes in extensions) for a second opinion and was told that the extensions were not at all properly put in my hair. This salon removed my extensions and put in a new set...I have had zero itching and not the slightest bit of discomfort. This experience cost me $700 and want to alert others before they make this same mistake at this salon!!! more

Great Hair Salon - Super Nice 9/2/2010

Extravaganza Hair Designs is a great hair salon. They are so friendly, professional, and helpful. Peter, the owner, is such a nice guy. The place is also very clean and nice. I would recommend to anyone needing a hair salon in the upper east side. more

great salon and great stylists! 11/25/2009

i would definitely recommend extravaganza salon! i recently moved from a small town to the upper east side in nyc and was struggling to find a great salon when i came across extravaganza. i made an apppointment with rosie to get a cut and color and am so happy i got to have her as my stylist. she was so nice, friendly and professional. she had a lenghty conversation with me about what i wanted before she started which made me feel really comfortable. i walked out that day feeling like a supermodel and immediately started recommending rosie to my friends. a few days after getting my hair done, however, i realized that my color was a little more red than i had originally wanted. i made a call to the salon and they told me to come in and said they would fix the color. when i went back rosie was just as nice and professional as the first time, and fixed my color to exactly what i was looking for. in addition, she didnt charge me anything to fix the color which i appreciated so much! needless to say, i am still a customer of rosie's and would send any of my friends to her! more

very good place 11/19/2009

Horrible haircut 9/16/2009

After reading the reviews of this salon, thought I'd try it out, especially after reading how friendly the staff was and of the trendy haircuts. Well I experienced neither. First of all, my stylist Michelle was nearly an hour late...and the owner asked me to have a seat outside on the bench....which I found odd as there were seats inside the salon. Finally i was asked to come nice. The owner then told the shampoo girl to start washing my hair while waiting for Michelle and to give me some deep conditioning shea butter conditioner. Well i have to say he doesn't know what 'deep' conditioning is as she left it on for seconds and in the end my hair was dry and lifeless. Anyway, my haircut was horrible and certainly not worth the trip to Manhattan. Further, as my stylist was Dominican, I got the typical Dominican mushroom hairstyle and hair was dry and just plain boring. I got the impression ethnic hair was not one of their strong beware. Never again am i going to this salon! Pros: Location Cons: Horrible haircut more

Trust Ruben! 6/11/2009

My girlfriend of Italian decent told me that she wants me to cut my hair if I plan on meeting her parents. I plan to ask her father for her hand in marriage and hope to impress him in anyway I can. My girlfriend trusts Ruben and convinced me to dump my old barbershop. She sat me down with Ruben and he snipped through my hair quickly and thoroughly. He gave me a clean cut that can easily be spiked neatly and professionally for any occasion. Please wish me luck! Pros: Professional, trust worthy, clean more

The best salon in NYC!!!! 6/10/2009

I went to Extravaganza on a recommendation, and was glad I did. Ruben did an amazing job(base&high lights) coloring & cutting. My hair looks healthier and thicker - I got many compliments on it already. Prices are also very reasonable for NYC. I will definitely be returning to this salon. Thank you Ruben!!! Pros: Great color, Professional, Courteous staff, Price, Location more
