With super fine hair I have had more than my fair share of hair disasters...I have even had hairdressers tell me I have awful hair...nice! I live overseas and book my appointments...


As usual, I had a great haircut and color by Jose, However, things at the salon seem disjointed. There don't seem to be enough assistants to help the hairdressers or keep the salo...

Fine hair fantastic!!! 1/6/2012

With super fine hair I have had more than my fair share of hair disasters...I have even had hairdressers tell me I have awful hair...nice! I live overseas and book my appointments online and last Tuesday was my second appointment with Jose...he really is a superstar. He really knows how to cut fine haircuts from him are the best I've ever had...I'm 41!! The service in the salon is get a head AND shoulder massage when they wash your hair and this time I got a hand massage while having my hair cut...complete heaven...they also offer a complementary make-up application after you have your hair done! Love Jose...will be back ASAP!! more

My experience at Scott J Aveda 1/4/2012

As always, Scott Aveda at 86th is the best. The service is great and Dawn is wonderful! more

Great 1st Experience! 1/3/2012

I've been going to the Scott J./Aveda Salon on W 72nd Street for a couple of years now and definitely preferred my experience at E 86th Street! Much quieter, softer music, and very friendly staff (although the staff is also very friendly at the W 72nd Street location). I'll be back for Melysa in 4 weeks! more

Neighborhood Treasure 1/2/2012

Randy is a genius stylist with the highest standards of excellence & professionalism. Love entire salon products & services, and never want anyone else to do my hair! more

haircut 12/26/2011

great haircut by Randy will definitely return more

Brittany is the best! 12/25/2011

I've never met anyone before Brittany who could cut my straight, Asian hair properly. But now, I have shape instead of what I used to call "helmet hair" where it looked someone plopped a Lego motorcycle helmet on my head and called it a haircut. With Brittany, she listens to you and no question is too silly for her. She's really professional and kind. more

best hair cut 12/25/2011

The staff and stylist were very friendly. Nykia knew exactly how to handle my hair. She took extra care in taking out my knots without hurting me. The color was exactly what i wanted. more

Just Great 12/20/2011

My colorist and stylist Randy is extraordinary. Everyone in the salon is professional and gracious. It's just great to be able to use on hair stylist for color and cut. more

Best so far! 12/20/2011

I have been going to Aveda for a little over a year now and have tried a few stylists, all have been good but I was 100% happy with Sal yesterday. The color is just like my own which is exactly what I wanted. I did not receive a cut but the blow out was great. Looking forward to next time! more

Best Haircut 12/16/2011

I have been going to Randy for 8 years and even though I live in another city I would never go anywhere else--he listens to exactly what I want but is also willing to share what he thinks will look best so that I always leave 100% happy. Afterwards I swear people are looking at my hair when I walk down the street because it looks so good! I only give this a 4.5 instead of 5 because I miss the really great neck/head massage I used to get--they still give them when you get your hair washed, the old guys just used to spoil you. Otherwise everything is great. more

Love it! 12/14/2011

Always Amazing cut and service! more

Melyssa Davis 12/12/2011

I have been using Melyssa as my hair stylist for over seven years. She always goes WAY BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY!!! She is marvelous!!! more

Outstanding 12/11/2011

This was the first time I was at Scott J and I had a 90 minutes facial with Rochelle and she was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable caring and I felt like I got the best facial ever. I will definately return and ask for Rochelle again. My entire experience at Scott J was excellant. more

love my hair 12/10/2011

Once again Randy made me look beautiful! more

Facial with Rochelle 12/10/2011

I had a facial with Rochelle... it was amazing. She is fantastic at what she does! more

Just what you should expect from an Aveda salon 12/8/2011

Amazing attention and service. Randy has been working on fixing my bad highlights and I'm very happy with his work - he's very fast, too! Got a blow out by Stephanie which was the best I've ever had. I called to make an appointment to have her blow out my hair again but they wouldn't book an assistant...seems like that should be allowed if they're specifically requested and isn't the client always right? Love the wifi access so I can be productive while primping! 4.5 stars - would have given 5 if they would have let Stephanie do my hair again. more

consistenly terrific 12/8/2011

Dawn is a color genius...everyone is pleasant and helpful more

calm oasis 12/7/2011

Saw my stylist Lee immediately, had color and cut, pleased with the result. Able to sit in spa area while color set because other seats full. Always smells nice in the salon! more

Good Experience 12/6/2011

Thanks again to Lee who always does a great job! However, not a big fan of the new assistants. The shampoo was actually painful and not only did I water splashed on my face but also down my back. Then the ensuing blowout was pretty painful as well and I think I lost a few chunks of hair. more
