Hillbilly in a beauty studio 12/26/2009

I grew up in Western PA. A guy-guy with a bad haircut and hillbilly ideals. Never imagined I would find myself writing a review for a salon. I met Gabriel through a friend 13 years ago and he's been cutting my hair ever since. I'm still amazed at how a great haircut can make you feel. Gabriel and Jeff are great at what they do and are simply good people. The studio is located on a great block in the West Village and the small space lends itself to the intimacy of the neighborhood. Pros: great vibe, good people, comfortable setting! Cons: ain't none... more

Cult Following 10/16/2008

Gabriel and Jeffrey have earned themselves a serious cult following from customers with impeccable and individual service to each. From the moment you step inside the charming and chic studio you feel at home and I never want to leave! These two superstars will change your life so immediately leave your old stylist and book an appointment asap. more

No praise too high 9/24/2008

This is hands-down the best salon experience imaginable. I see Gabriel and I have never gotten a better cut or color from anyone. The results are so excellent, I wish I could post pictures on citysearch. I've walked into a lot of upscale salons, armed with a blind optimism that the stylist will make me look my best--and Sparkle is the only establishment to have met and exceeded my expectations *every time*. The personal attention, the atmosphere, the fabulous playlists on the stereo--everything is perfect. Gabriel seems to have an intuitive understanding of my style and thus how I want to look walking out the salon doors. This must sound hyperbolic to the uninitiated, but I promise, you won't want to return to whomever you were seeing before. The Sparkle experience will make anyone unfaithful to their previous stylist. Pros: Staff, personal attention, atmosphere more

Fantastic Service 8/25/2008

Spakle Beauty Studio is an utter delight! The service is truly personalized, and they make you feel like you're their only client. Talk about feeling important! I have had my hair done by Gabriel a few times now, and everytime I've left feeling 100% satisfied. I can't say enough good things about Sparkle!! A rare find in the sea of NYC beauty salons. more

Fantastic Salon, The Best In The City 8/22/2008

I made an appointment the other day for this place, having walked past it many times. I'm extremely particular when it comes to my hair and have tried many NY salons. I've never been so ecstatic about a cut and color in my life! The owners greeted me with such politeness and introduced me to Laura the assistant. it's not often in this crazy city of ours that people are so thoughtful. I was given a consultation and felt like I'd really been listened too. The cut took an hour and the attention to detail was amazing. What really stood out was the color. I've been trying to get this particular shade of blonde for years, but no-one has been able to get even close. All this and a great atmosphere too. I have recommended this place to many of my friends and am going back in 6 weeks. I'm hooked! Pros: Great coloring technique. Beautiful cuts. Cons: There isn't another one uptown! more

cutest place 8/21/2008

I recently moved to New York and I was recommended by a friend to Laura at Sparkle. I couldn't seem to get my color exactly how I wanted it. She took care of my color, it looks great and my cut is so easy so manage. She took such great care of me, even moisturized my hands with their sparkle lotion and touched up my makeup. The salon is so cute and everyone is really sweet. more

Obnoxious attitude for amateur service 8/6/2008

I went here for a touch-up on a bad highlighting job I got at another salon. I brought a picture of the color that I wanted so there would be no miscommunication, but I ended up getting a much darker color with ugly gray undertones. I looked like Michael Keaton in Beatlejuice and they charged me a ludicrous sum for it. more

make an appt with laura..she is really great! 6/26/2008

i was a first-timer at Sparkle Studio and went to Laura. she was a cool, professional chick who knows what she is doing. she is confidence and it shows in her work. i highly recommend going to her for cut/color! more

The BEST Salon In NYC By FAR! 6/23/2008

I have been going to Sparkle for over two years, and Gabriel is just fantastic, he makes me look absolutely gorgeous everytime. I get compliments daily from colleagues and clients on my hair, and on the color and the cut. The personalized service, warm and respectful treatment and accommodating nature of Gabriel and Jeffrey make this Salon the best I have ever been too. I have been recommending Sparkle to everyone and can't say enough great things about this place, I am just so glad I found them! And while yes, this great work and royal treatment come with a price, it is well worth it, when you look great you feel great, and it flows into every aspect of your life, you start taking even better care of yourself when you are happy with what you see!! Thank you Jeffrey and Gabriel!! Pros: Fantastically Talented Professionals with Exceptionally Personalized Service Cons: A little expensive, but, you get what you pay for!! Well worth it!! more

New Stylist Laura is very good 5/21/2008

They have a new stylist there named Laura who gave me the best cut and color I've got in years. She is friendly, professional, and does a really great job. This salon is literally the gem of the West Village. Pros: Friendly, Professional, Talented more

Can it get any better than this? 11/13/2007

This is the best salon I have ever been to! The atmosphere was like an old Hollywood dressing room. How fabulous is that? Not only did I receive professional service, I received the best haircut/color that I have ever received. Now I have been to some top-notch places before, mainly in LA that I thought were completely fabulous. Sparkle/Jeff has taken it to a completely new level! First of all, they understand hair/face shapes and what works best with you. They also listen to you (what a new concept!) Jeff did my cut and my color, both coming out completely incredible. I have very fine hair that has been deemed as ""dry clean only"" by several stylists. It takes someone special to handle this mane, so I refuse to go to less than the best. He was so professional, easy to talk to, and well dressed to boot. When my hair cut was complete, the even re-touched my makeup. I also got a hand massage. Both awesome extras that do not occur very often! Jeff even ran down the street to the magazine stand and bought me some gossip mags to read! Now I'm not saying that this comes without a price, but I am definitely labeling this experience as money well spent! GO SEE JEFF!! Not only will he be your new best friend, but you will never regret it! Pros: Everything about this place! Quiet neighborhood, just amazing! Cons: Cost (duh.) more

I felt fabulous after leaving the salon! 2/10/2006

My first visit to the salon and I can't wait to go back. Gabrielle is very talented and so charming. My highlights (mix of low and high) came out amazing. I get complemented every day! The cut is also great and I never felt so refreshed and beautiful after leaving a salon before. Sally is super sweet and also has amazing talent. She did my makeup so beautiful, as well as twezing my eybrows to complete perfection. Jeffrey was such a pleasure also. They really do give you personal service and great quality in the work they do. I HIGHLY recommend this salon to everyone. I am so delighted that I have found this place and like I said before, I can't wait to go back! Thank you ever so much Gabrielle, Sally, and Jeffrey! See you soon......Eileen Pros: Welcoming, Friendliness, Perfection! more

Fab! 1/11/2006

Read about Sparkle in ""In Touch Magazine"". I visited the studio and was pampered, cared for and beautified. Really! Sparkle's Backstage V.I.P. is a superb hair care line. I use it everyday and my hair never looked better. Gabriel and Jeffrey are so lovely and talented. Pros: Great Music, Great Products, VIP Premiere more

Heavenly Experience 11/9/2005

I have been going to Gabriel for haircuts/coloring for over 12 years and am so glad he and Jeffrey started Sparkle Studio. The atmosphere is soothing and wonderful. You feel totally pampered the minute you step through the door. Gabriel is a magician when it comes to hair/make-up; he is creative and knows not only the fashion trends but also clients' personalities........I always leave feeling like a star after he is done. Jeffrey is the sweetest person there is and Sally has become a great addition to the studio. Trust me, once you step into Sparkle Studio, you will know that there is no place like it! Go there, treat yourself to a great haircut, enjoy the music (fabulous music), and be beautiful...... Pros: Pampering, Great Music, Great Service more

Run to Gabriel for the best cut ever! 10/6/2005

If you want hair like a celebrity or rock star, or simply an excellent cut or styling, you don't have to spend up to 800.00 for a cut. Gabriel, who has worked on the most famous of the famous, done magazine shoots, album covers, music videos, TV shows and backstage beauty at awards shows, can do it all. He just has an incredible eye for proportion and style, and can do anything (including makeup). He keeps up with how celebs look, so if you say that you want your hair cut like a certain celeb, he will know exactly what to do. I have been going to him for 7 years for my color and my cuts and I never have to worry about my hair. My teenage daughter also goes to Gabriel for a cut that always looks good and makes her look like a rock star. Pros: attention, fab music playing, atmosphere more

Positively Radiant! 8/15/2005

A+++. The Staff is Great! Very Caring & Gentle. They make you feel like a Queen/King for a day. It's the only place i've been to that i can truly say have been able to relax, have fun, and have my hair be done to perfection all in one sitting.

Has to be the best 8/15/2005

Beautiful atmosphere, cozy, comfortable, and pleasurable staff. Worth every penny. more

Absolutely the best! 3/18/2005

I travel over three hours every four weeks to have my hair cut, colored and styled by the very talented Gabriel of Sparkle Beauty Studio. I always leave Sparkle feeling beautiful, relaxed, happy and perfectly satisfied. The salon is a wonderful place to relax, read a magazine, hang out and enjoy a delicious cup of peppermint tea. There is never a wait, everyone is warm, friendly and very caring. I always feel like a very VIP client. In fact, I love the whole experience of being there, in that lovely spot in the West Village. Nicole brings me tea, Sally touches up my make-up, Jeffrey is a delight to be around and always has a fabulous recommendation for lunch in the city, and of course the hair by Gabriel-perfectly fabulous every time. I will not go anywhere else. more
