Very happy with service. Highly recommend.


I wish my experience had been half as good as all the great reviews here. Admittedly, I have fine, wavy hair which can be difficult to cut but Allison seemed like she understood e...

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/30/2013

Highly recommend. \r \r Mark at Mint is a phenom. I have that fine wavy hair that never behaves unless the humidity is at a perfect 87%. But Mark finds a way to work with it and it's always perfection. He even color-corrected a self-inflicted mistake in no time flat and I always leave with a great blow-out. Plus he's fun to talk to.\r \r I used to go (always with trepidation) to a frenetic, pseudo-chic salon on Varick & King but now look forward to the relaxing, warm, down-to-earth yet clean, bright and stylish setting in the smaller Mint Salon. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/21/2013

Yay for Mint Salon! Mark Perez has been my stylist for many years. He is innovative, yet patient and listens to your ideas for new styles, he's a master at cutting hair - but checks in with you along the way. Important if you're as OCD when it comes to hair cuts like I am. Mark is also such a relaxed and easy going guy - and worth mentioning, hilariously funny. I've been recommending him to both women and men friends over the years, and everyone has stuck with him and loves his work!\r \r Well worth the trek to the little oasis in the garment district. The loft like space with sleek decor, and corner windows with open views give the salon a peaceful & airy feel. The staff there are all friendly and hospitable and make you feel very well taken care of. I look forward to each visit! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/20/2013

No one touches my hair except for super stylist, Mark Perez. I have had disastrous cuts from exclusive salons in the city, but for 10 years Mark is my sure thing. He does a beauty consultation with me every time and makes recommendations and tweaks based on my changing needs and lifestyle.\r \r I have high maintenance Asian hair (not all of us were blessed with straight, shiny hair) but Mark always works with the texture to give me a chic but easy to maintain cut and style.\r \r It's a plus that he is one of the nicest people on the earth! A true NYC find. more

The Best Haircut and Color EVER!! 9/24/2011

Having gotten a disastrous cut and color a week before, I was desperate to find someone to make me look like a normal human being. My hair was carnival clown red, frizzy and a mess. I used Around Me on my iPhone to find a salon in my neighborhood, and went to Mint Salon. Charlene and Allison undid the damage immediately. The new cut was perfect--very flattering and easy to maintain. The rinse softened the red into a pleasant auburn. I have found my NY salon!! These women are artists. Perfection. more

Always a great haircut from Allison Burr! 4/21/2011

Allison Burr at Mint Salon is an artist when she?s working with my hair! She cuts to style, taking time to make sure the look is right for me. Not only does my hair look great after she?s finished cutting it but it grows in beautifully during the weeks in between my appointments with her. I consulted with Allison about a year ago because I was looking for someone to help me transition from years of coloring my hair to the real me. At age 61, I just felt I didn?t look like myself anymore and I knew there was a beautiful silver/white natural color to my hair, waiting to come out. Because I wanted to do this ?cold turkey? with no more dyes, Allison advised me to let my hair grow out naturally for four months and then come back and see her. I followed her advice and she gave me a wonderful short cut that first time, getting rid of most of the dye. I'm a loyal client now. My hair looks so super that someone even stopped me on the street recently to ask where I got my haircut. It was a real pleasure to recommend Allison at Mint. She?s a gem! more

Great Hair Salon 11/30/2010

When I first moved to NYC, I was very disappointed in the quality of stylists and colorists (even when pay many hundreds of dollars). In fact, I used to fly back to London! \r \r Then I met Allison and Charlene. That was over 8 years ago and I would never let anyone else touch my hair. Allison is able to work with my thick, wavey hair and Charlene gives me such natural looking highlights that people think I'm a natural light blonde. They are also incredibly reasonably priced given all the years of Vidal Sassoon training they bring with them. more

My haircut gives me PMS 11/3/2010

I wish my experience had been half as good as all the great reviews here. Admittedly, I have fine, wavy hair which can be difficult to cut but Allison seemed like she understood exactly what I'd wanted--using my natural curl for an inverted bob, long enough in front to wear behind my ears. A cut I've successfully gotten elsewhere many times before. more

I LOVE MY HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!! 7/14/2010

I have been highlighting my dark brown hair blonde FOR YEARS and was never completely satisfied with the results. I learned to expect/accept the "orangey pieces" that i thought were unavoidable....UNTIL TODAY!!!!! Pros: FABULOUS HAIR! Cons: NONE! more

Best Salon in New York 6/16/2010

I think I have tried every salon in New York City, but I have finally found the ONE!!! I went to mint salon on a model call and it has been one great appointment after another. Charlene is amazing and transformed my hair color and it has never looked better. She listens to what you like and don't like about your hair and does not let you leave the salon unless you absolutely love you hair. She also recently did the Keratin treatment and it was a life saver. My hair is silkier, stronger, and no frizz. Plus it takes me no time to do my hair. Which is amazing, as a model being hair and make-up ready at the last minute sometimes. Allison is also a gem, she cuts bangs better then anyone I know and her cuts I hear have a cult following!! My only regret is not coming to this salon soon!!! Run, don"t walk Pros: never had a bad experience Cons: none!!! more

Amazing hair cut for very difficult hair! 5/7/2010

I have very thick, unruly, hard to manage hair and have been loathe to get a haircut somewhere new. I work for a makeup company and my coworker urged me to go to Mint after she worked with Allison at a few fashion shows (and since my friend very thick hair, knows many people in the biz and swears by them I thought it was worth a shot). I am SO HAPPY I listened to her because this is the best cut (and styling) I have had in my life. I went to Allison and not only did she totally listen to my ramblings on what I did/ didn't like or want she knew how to work with my type of hair immediately and what the best cut would be. I know have nice long layers that look seamless, not choppy, and work whether my hair is naturally curly or if I straighten it. Pros: Great team, amazing hair cut, great overall experience Cons: None more

Keratin Treatment - AMAZING 5/5/2010

I recently had a keratin treatment at Mint Salon and I couldn't be happier. My hair has never looked better and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend Mint Salon to all - RUN!!! Make your appt. today. Pros: friendly, cool & inviting more

Fantastic Place for Men's cuts 4/29/2010

This is a fantastic salon. Allison is a pro. In fact, she is the best stylists I've ever had cut my hair. She takes the time to discuss what she thinks will work best. She listens to what you are interested in trying... and she's willing to try out your ideas. She has an amazing pedigree and it shows since she is able to find a hairstyle that best fits your hair type, head shape, interests, etc. Pros: Allison, service, staff, near the NY Times Building Cons: none more

Great Haircut for Men 3/9/2010

Alison and the rest of the people at Mint Salon are extremely friendly and professional. I moved into the neighborhood recently and found this salon through a friend. I was a little apprehensive about the $125 price tag, but it is more than worth it. In between haircuts, you can stop by anytime for a clean up at no extra charge. Its nice to have someone as experienced as Alison cutting my hair on a regular basis. I have received many complements. Pros: Personal friendly service more

Mint for Photo Shoots 1/11/2010

I just completed a promotional photo shoot and had Allison and Charlene style and color my hair. That's their work in my profile picture. I am a regular client but I admire their artistic vision so I hired them for a professional project. I could not be happier with the results and would recommend them without reservation! Pros: Magazine quality styling Cons: None more

Extremely polished, professional cut 12/2/2009

I found Mint online, hours after the second of two, extremely disappointing experiences at my regular (now former) salon. I called to make an appt on a Monday morning, early, and rec'd a call within a couple of hours from Allison, who booked me an appt for the next day! When I arrived, she took her time to truly understand the cut I had wanted from my former stylist, and explained to me what we could do moving forward. Within minutes (she's very fast), she transformed the imperfect mess I walked in with into a striking and extremely polished cut. One can tell that she really is an expert in her field. Bonus: she gave me several helpful pieces of advice custom-tailored for my kind of hair, the products/brushes I use, and the cut I eventually would like to have. AND she offered to trim my bangs for free as needed. Pros: very experienced stylists, relaxed atmosphere (no attitude) Cons: fluorescent lights more

Top notch salon! 11/5/2009

I've been to Mint salon more than 2 weeks ago and since then I received so many compliments on my haircut! Allison is truly exquisite - this is the best haircut I had in years! Pros: great haircut, great service Cons: none more

Mint Salon is your new BFF 7/31/2009

This was my first visit to the Mint Salon. I have long, thick, wavy hair and have gone through a number of bad cuts to find someone who could work with my hair. I am grateful to say I have found that person in Allison Burr at the Mint Salon. Within a few seconds, I could tell she knew what she was doing by the questions she asked and the way she handled my hair. Allison is a pro; cuts with precision, and knows her craft. I give the salon a big thumbs up -- friendly, accommodating, and great attitude from all the staff. more

World class! 6/3/2009

Everyone at Mint is wonderful - friendly, down-to-earth, generous. I have been following Allison for years now and this is the first time I have stuck to a hair stylist - she understands me and she understands my hair! Even when it is growing out and in need of a trim, it manages to look great. Allison takes her time and I totally trust her. I would be at a huge loss without Mint as my hair remains - during these times - the only thing I splurge on. more

Allison and Charlene are AMAZING at MINT salon 5/5/2009

I have known Allison and Charlene for almost four years. They have cut and colored my hair in a million different ways. I am so confident in their abilities I always say, "Stylists Choice." And however they do it.. the second I walk out the door a stranger on the street says, "Great hair!" No lie, every time. They are that amazing. I would follow them to any salon. Lucky for me Mint is a gem in the sky with great natural light and a relaxing vibe. Thank you Mint! more
