BEST CUT & COLOR EVER... 4/18/2010

I have searched long and hard for the best colorist & finally found him - Arthur at Luba Salon is the best ever! I have gone to famous colorist, traveled hours to find the one who would give me the color I wanted with consistent results. My highlights would always tend to get bleached out to the point where I lost my natural low lights & anytime low lights were put in, they appeared washed out within 2 weeks... until I finally found Arthur! He takes the time to use the right color and to pick the perfect strands to highlight so that I still had my beautiful natural low lights, each and every time. I have been going to him for a few years now which is a record for me... I intentionally waited to write the review, even though I was thrilled in the beginning, the true test for me was to be just as happy, actually happier than when I first went to him. I never write reviews, but I took the time because everyone should know he is NYC's (and to me the world's) best kept secret... Pros: consistent, beautiful results each & every time! more

such a great salon! 3/21/2010

From the moment I walked up the stairs to this great little salon, the experience was top notch! Arthur took his time to listen to what I was looking for, and made it clear that his goal was to make me happy and feel beautiful! The hours are very flexible, which is great for women with busy schedules...I am so happy with my cut and color, and cannot wait to go back for more superb service. I have never been this happy with my hair - thanks Arthur! Pros: individualized attention, relaxed atmosphere, great prices more

Amazing! 11/17/2009

I tried Luba's for the first time this week after spending months searching for a new stylist. I'm so happy I did! Pros: Highly-Skilled Stylist, Friendly Staff,Relaxed Atmosphere more

Best Blow Dry in New York City! 11/14/2009

I first found Luba's Salon by accident after I was coming out of the Equinox gym on 63rd street and Lexington Avenue. I needed a quick blow dry, and my usual place was booked. I noticed a sign for Luba's Salon and decided to try it, so I walked up to the salon which is located on the second floor. There I was greeted by a very nice stylist named Arthur. After a wonderful head massage and hair wash, I was treated to one of the best blow outs that I have ever had and have been coming weekly ever since 2005. Luba's Salon is a family business which is what makes this place so special. However, the real secret to Luba's Salon is Arthur Lak. Arthur is an extremely talented stylist who is also very kind and patient. He truly wants to make his clients happy and makes sure that all his clients leave the salon looking and feeling beautiful. Arthur is very good at cutting and styling and really does one of the best blow outs in New York City. Luba's salon has some wonderful treatments as well. I especially love the Deep Conditioning Moroccan Oil Treatment which includes an incredible head massage. Over the years I have been to many of New York's top salons but nobody blows my hair like Arthur! I always leave the salon looking and feeling great. Pros: Excellent service, relaxing atmosphere, prices more

Amazing cuts and color! 7/16/2009

I am so grateful to my friend for recommending Arthur at Luba's Salon for my cut and color! Arthur is extremely talented. I always know I will love my color and that my cut will continue to look good, even as my hair grows. I moved to the suburbs two years ago, but I still travel into NYC to have Arthur work his magic! more

Great salon and stylist! 6/30/2009

I moved to New York and was in need of a new hairstylist. After researching several salons on Citysearch, I decided to try Arthur at Luba's Salon. I am so glad I did. My cut and color was beautiful. The color was shiny and natural and my hair fell effortlessly into place. I never knew what a great haircut was until Arthur cut my hair. For the past five years, all of my cuts and highlights by Arthur have been perfection. Pros: Skilled and friendly stylist Cons: Not located in my home town more

Consistently great cuts and color 6/25/2009

I have been going to Luba's for over 5 years, specifically to Arthur. His cuts and color are consistently the best I've had in my life. When I first went to him, my wavy/curly hair was limp and unmanageable and he gave it life again. Every time I leave Luba's I feel like a million bucks. Pros: lowkey atmosphere, experience, reasonable prices, great work more

The best hairdressing salon in the world!!! 6/6/2009

I am from Gibraltar and lived in NY for 2 years. During my stay here I read a couple of beauty magazines and came across Louis Licari Hairdressing salon and much to my disappointment it wasn't as amazing as magazines described. A friend of mine then recommended Luba's Salon so I arranged an appointment. It was the best thing I did, not only because of their professionalism and the way they did my highlights and cut so perfectly but also for the wonderful way in which they treat their customers and make them feel very welcome and relaxed. I've been back in Gibraltar since 2003 and no-one has ever done my hair as amazingly as they did. They should open Luba's salon around the world!!! Pros: Professional hairdressing and marvellous people. Cons: There are no cons about this hairdressing salon. more

Great color! 4/25/2009

Arthur knows blond - dark blond, light blond, anything in between. I have been going to this salon for over 10 years and continue to be thrilled with the color, regardless of whether I want to go darker or lighter. more

Couldn't love the look more 3/31/2009

Prior to this experience, I remember complaining about my hair to my friend Sarah, who also lived a few blocks away from Luba Salon, about how brassy my blond hair had become from a botched color job earlier. She promised to walk with me in the neighborhood until we found someone who would make it better, thinking I had already tried a good number of great salons -- why not walk around? We stopped in two or three places -- all were afraid to do anything with my hair to fix it (probably knowing it would be worse because they didn't really know how to fix it). She and I came across Arthur, asked him what he would do if he were me, and he gave his honest opinion. I ended up walking out with some great halo highlights and a much better attitude about my looks and Sarah ended up walking out with a haircut (even though her long locks were afraid of being cut too much, he was able to give her exactly the look she wanted -- haircut showing more length than before). All in all, we couldn't ask for a more talented stylist who really understands what you are asking for. I have finally found reasonably priced hairstyles with no complications and great results. Pros: Can't go wrong more

Best haircut in NYC! 3/31/2009

I lived in NYC for 6 years and for the first few years before I found Arthur, I was going to one salon after another paying a lot of $ for a haircut and always leaving disappointed. I have long, straight, fine hair and not many people know how to cut it in a way to keep its shape, volume, etc. What usually happened is that 99% of the hairstylists tried to convince me that I need to cut my hair short - and that's the only way that my hair would look good. Well, let's just say that after meeting Arthur, I knew that they were lying - they were just saying that because they themselves either didn't know how to do it or didn't want to take the time to listen to what I wanted. What I found in Arthur is a hairstylist who not only listens to what I want, but someone who will also be very honest with me with his expertise if he feels that I'm way off. Time after time, I always left his salon feeling beautiful and always received countless compliments on my hair...which never used to happen! After 2 years of having become spoiled by Arthur's haircuts, I have recently moved to VA...and after 6 months, I decided that I'll just make quarterly visits to NYC and get my hair cut! I come to NYC often to visit friends anyways... Arthur is without a doubt one of the best, if not the best, hairstylists in NYC. I'm just sorry that I dont' live there anymore.. Pros: Arthur more

GREAT service, great location etc 3/31/2009

And the cut is one that looks good that day AND still good 3 months from that day. Its not fussy or overdone - it just looks like you - only better! Pros: Arthur is the best!! more

GREAT salon & stylist! 6/28/2008

I visited NY on business and needed a haircut while there. I made an appt with Luba but was late for my appt. They were very understanding and Arthur did my hair. He did a great job! Now, I am spoiled by him and can't find another stylist that did my hair like him! I have long hair (mid back) and when he did my hair I never had to do anything with it - once it was dry it looked great with the layers he put in. Now, I am always having to style it or dry it to get the look I want. I am actually contemplating flying back for the weekend to just get my hair cut! Also, the cost of the cut was very affordable. Pros: great stylist - affordable Cons: nothing more

Best salon in NY 4/28/2008

I've been going to Luba Salon for about 4 years now and would never think of going anywhere else to have my hair done. The first time I went, Luba cut my hair and did a great job. I have rather unruly hair and never had good luck with other stylists. Luba listened to my concerns, suggested some things to me, and we agreed on a new style, which looked great! I have gone back ever since and always have had a great experience. This year Arthur has been taking care of my hair, and he has done a wonderful job too! You cannot go wrong here. Both Luba and Arthur are highly skilled professionals. They really listen to you and do what you want - but also can suggest new looks if you want to experiment. I have never had to ""re-do"" my hair after leaving (which was the case with the other places I've used before, from NYC to London). Luba and Arthur are both warm and friendly and make the whole experience relaxing and fun. If you're unhappy with your current salon, you must try Luba's! If you like your current salon, go to Luba's anyway - you'll love it! And, for NYC, the prices are really reasonable. Go to this salon! Pros: Skilled and friendly stylists; reasonable prices Cons: nothing more

It doesn't get any better than this! 3/6/2008

Since my first visit with Arthur several years ago, I have never even thought of letting anyone else touch my hair. Even when I lived quite far away for a couple years, I still traveled back regularly to have him do my hair. As my natural color has changed, Arthur has been able to adapt to always make it look naturally blonde, which is great. And his cuts have gotten better and better over the years. I've completely stopped telling him what I think I want and simply let him do whatever he thinks is going to look best. And he's never done anything less than amazing! Pros: easy location, amazing skill more

Arthur is amazing!! 5/11/2007

I booked an appointment with Arthur after reading reviews here, and was not disappointed. Arthue gave me exactly what I wanted and yet added his own touch to my hair!! I have thick, dark, medium long hair, and I was nervous about getting a cut because I am growing my hair. Arthur listened to me and gave me one of the best haircuts I have had!! And that too without chopping off a big chunk like every other (upscale) salon. Arthur's down-to-earth nature and the salon's reasonable prices are icing on cake! I highly highly recommend this place. Pros: Great cut, great staff more

Looking for a great haircut? Go to Luba's Salon! 4/11/2007

This is the second time that I have gone to Luba's Salon. After the first time I knew that I couldn't go anywhere else. Arthur and Stanley are great. They make sure you get what you want and that you are completely satisfied. They make the perfect team and you won't be bored because of the friendly and comfortable atmosphere they create. I have gone to many hairdressers in several countries but this was the first time that I got the haircut I've always wanted. They're very flexible even if you are late, you won't go home disappointed. The search for the perfect hair salon is over, Luba's is the answer! Pros: Comfortable atmosphere, great service more

Only a few complaints 3/26/2007

Great Cut & Color, no question! However, it set me back about $450 and 4 1/2 hours in the chair bored, hungry & very little hospitality (one cold cup of coffee). Arthur does a terrific job. I guess I just had to be a little pushier about being treated like I was spending the money I spent. Pros: great color & cut Cons: lacks personality more
