Best ever! 1/19/2010

Takamichi was absolutely incredible - he gave me a long-term plan on how I should get future cuts, and I left with quite possibly the best haircut I have ever had. I'm only in NYC every 6-8 weeks for work, but I'm definitely coming back to see Takamichi. Pros: Fantastic stylist Cons: A little out of the way more

Save the money n time 10/14/2009

I went in to get a fohawk. Took pictures with me and told the stylist how i wanted it. Specifically told the stylist i want the back to be untouched. stylist told me it doesnt look too professional and will trim it just a bit. took half the length out. it took me 2 mons to grow it long to where i wanted it to be but it was gone in 60secs! then the top was uneven. stylist cut one side too short and left the other side with the perfect length but looked retarded cuz it was uneven. I went back the next day and stylist was kind enough to fix it. but damage done. to fix it, had to cut the hair short to even it out. Overall the hair doesnt look bad, but doesnt look anything like how i wanted it. I wanted a fohawk and was willing to pay more than what i usually pay but walked out with a regular medium length haircut which i cldve gotten for 20 bucks. I dunno why the stylist try to do different than what u asked for. I wont mention the stylist name but frm the other reviews it looks like he/she is well known. very disappointed Pros: friendly staff Cons: haircut more

Valerie is fantastic 8/25/2009

I followed Valerie here from her previous gig at Arte Salon and I would follow her anywhere. She is truly good at what she does and takes the time to give a precision cut. Val takes great pride in her work and seems to genuinely care about all her clients. Pros: Valerie Cons: None I've noticed more

disappointed... 8/3/2009

I went to takamichi HAIR for twice total and I had a good experience for the first time. So I went back there again to have a hair cut with the same hairstylist. While she was working on cutting my hair, we were chatting and it seems she was so into talking and she made a really bad mistake to cut part of my bangs so short (about 1 inch from my scalp). She was trying to pretend as if nothing serious happened and I didn't tell her anything because it is already a done thing, but I can see on a mirror that my part of my bangs are strangely short... This is really unprofessional... I wouldn't go back there anymore. more

Make an appt with Cristin 2/19/2009

Fantastic salon. Airy, light-filled loft space that's completely unpretentious - I felt comfortable the moment I stepped in. Cristin is an amazing stylist! Attentive, easygoing, and so talented. She's cut my hair from pixie short to a layered shoulder length style and I've zero complaints - she's a doll. Highly recommended! Pros: Wine for clients; discount card! After 5 or 6 visits you get 40% off your appt more

jenni is my new personal beauty god!!! 6/4/2008

first of all---the salon is AMAZING!!!!\r second of all---jenni is the coolest hairdresser ever! i had no clue what to do with myself, but jenni put me up to date! i was tired of looking like a carbon copy reject, and she totally re-imagined a new me and now i dont feel so boring! i love how she listened to what i wanted or wanted to avoid, then she gave me some cool suggestions on turning toward a new direction so i get away from taking on the same haircut i always do. after that, she told me, from start to finish, how to do my hair MYSELF---WHICH I THOUGHT I COULD NEVER DO (i used to hate doing my hair)! now, i not only look HOT as heck leaving the salon, but i look HOT EVERY DAY!!!! Pros: i am hotter than anyone i know Cons: she only works friday and saturday (awww!) more

Oooh la la eye lashes 1/11/2008

Ok, for any of you who want your lashes to look lusciously curled, I have just found the BEST salon. I have never heard of a japanese eyelash perm until a friend recommended I check it out at Takamichi Hair. Yoshie curled my eyelashes and made them look fuller and longer. The best part was, it lasted for months!!! I highly recommend this service and can't wait to try a haircut there. Pros: beautiful space, great service Cons: can't think of any more

Carol + Takamichi Hair = outstanding! 10/3/2007

I was in to see Carol recently at Takamichi Hair. I am writing this because she has given me the best style I've had in a real long time. She also cut my husbands' hair and it looks fantastic! She listens very well to what you say & want. She then discusses options with you ( I wanted something totally out of reach for my fine hair) and gives you ultimately the best thing! Because she pays such great attention to detail, she is a one stop hair source for Zack & I. Thank you so much Carol! See you soon! Pros: great listener = great stylist Cons: i got lost on my way = a bit hard to find more

Great service, talented artists 10/2/2007

Takahiro really is an artist and he takes cutting hair very seriously. He will listen to what you want, but also give you suggestions for what he thinks will look good for your hair type. When the cut is done, he always gives recommendation for styling, but never pushes you to buy any products. The only problem is that they are getting so popular that it will be hard to get an appointment! Pros: Talented hair stylists Cons: Starting to become crowded and busy all the time more

Best hair cut in the city! 9/17/2007

I have gone to many hair salons all over lower Manhattan and every time I leave feeling upset and irritated. Takamichi Hair was a completely different experience. A buddy of mine told me about Takamichi Hair (he gets his hair cut by Takamichi) so I called and made an appointment. Since Takamichi was booked, I took an appointment with Takahiro. He cut my hair just right. I guess I am a bit picky with the length and I usually get it cut too short, but Takahiro knew exactly what I wanted. He really listen to me and didn't just try to rush me along. He took his time with my hair and made sure it was perfect.\r \r The experience of riding up seven floors in an industrial elevator was a bit strange at first, but turned out to be quite interesting. The salon its self is really beautiful and everyone there was very helpful and polite.\r \r I usually never write reviews, but Takamichi Hair really blew me away! I will definitely be back!\r more

Takahiro - beautiful curls.... 9/17/2007

I want to share my experience at Takamichi Hair. I am utterly thankful to my friend Chris who introduced me. Most times I just kept my hair up since it was always sooo one has ever been able to tame my curly hair.... or wavy.. it is something in between and i never know what to do with it. My friend actually bought me a gift certificate.... (I have to say I was not really thinking of using it...but Chris was on me for two weeks, non stop! so I finally booked) It was actually an amazing experience, starting with the manual driven freight elevator and spacious loft like salon on the top floor. One hour later, I looked fab.....a week later i still looked fab....I was amazed. Takahiro gave me some advice how to take care of my mane, what to use and how to use the products and hair dryer.\r Yes, all my friends asks me what and where, so here it is! \r Takahiro at Takamichi Hair.\r This is really worth it, never go back to Japan, Takahiro! please stay, New York need you!\r luv Pros: great energy Cons: non more

Amazing Cutting Technique 9/13/2007

I had my hair cut last week at Takamichi Hair and had the chance to get Takahiro!\r An amazing Hair Stylist with techniques I have not seen before.\r He is such an artist! the experience was just fabulous and I wanted to thank him! i tried so many different salons and looked fab for two days....10 days passed and I still look great! ;)\r I have found my Stylist in NY...finally! by the way, also had the japanese eyelash is true---just amazing. no need to curl my lashes anymore.\r xoxo\r e\r \r Pros: private Cons: -- more

simply the BEST pedicure! 7/31/2007

takamichi always cuts my hair, and I LOVE it, he is simply the best. so with his high level, I had to try the addition-takamichi Head to Toe and have to say that I have never had such a Pedicure in my life.\r Yoshie is just amazing, she is so detail oriented and such a perfectionist. her massage skills--amazing.\r JUST try it!\r lemme know.\r xo\r more

Carole is great! 7/19/2007

Went to Takamichi for the first time and was really happy with the experience. No attitude, everyone is laid-back and easy going....none of that ""everyone in here is trying to be cool, so we're going to be snotty to you"" attitude.\r It's very spacious and airy so you can have a conversation without everyone listening to you. They offer you a drink, but none of it is obsequious, which I'm so happy about.\r Got a cut and color with Carole and am thrilled with it. She's very friendly and very talented. I'll definitely be going back again. She gave me exactly what I asked for.\r So, if you're a NYer and tired of all the ""we're too cool"" places, but want a place that is cool, but down-to-earth, go to Takamichi! Pros: Laid-back atmosphere, airy, cool, plenty of room. Cons: None, really! more

Exceptional stylist = Carole! 7/18/2007

I have been to many salons in New York. I am usually unimpressed by either the feel of the place, or the bad attitude/ incompetence of the stylist. I heard about Takamichi HAIR from a friend who highly recommended it. I had damaged hair from a previous stylist, so I booked a cut and colour with Carole. She was amazing! She not only mended my damaged hair and coloured it exactly how I wanted, but she also took the time to fully discuss the options I had for a cut. I have somewhat unruly hair, and she was able to cut it in a way that allows it to fall freely. I don't have alot of time to style my hair, and Carole listened to me and completely went above and beyond what I had hoped for! I highly recommend her. Also, the salon is a great hidden retreat! Pros: Great atmospere, skilled, friendly stylist more

Hair cut the i wanted 7/11/2007

I get very panicky allowing someone to cut my hair. When I go to a salon I always explain to the hairstylist how I would like my hair cut, but they always get it wrong. Unlike Tamami, she gave me the hair cut that I wanted and added a few layers that made the whole look even better, ?LOVE IT????.. Not only was she able to give me the hair cut that I wanted and cut it in a shape that would suit my face, she made me feel very comfortable. I will differently be seeing Tamami again in a month. Pros: to happy can't complaine more

Best semi permanent mascara 6/28/2007

Girls, seriously you have to try this.\r Let me tell you about my experience at Takamichi Hair. First of all the salon is really trendy, It doen't look like any I've seen before. It isn't pretencious at all, everybody is friendly and I want to add ""naturally"" friendly. Nothing is forced.\r The girl who does the semi permanent mascara is so cute, she does anything to make you feel confortable.\r the service is good, it really is conveigant, no mascara for a month!! \r I advise anybody to go there even for hair cut or manicure pedicure, because I really enjoyed the experience. Pros: nice atmosphere nice poeple great service Cons: nothing more

Amazing new services 6/28/2007

I went there because I have been told they are now offering beauty services such as manicure, pedicure and eyelash permanent and I got semi-permanent mascara!\r Everything was perfect: the place is beautiful, spacious and the atmosphere makes you feel relaxed and at ease.\r Yoshie is very sweet and I felt very calm and comfortable while she was doing my mascara: I did not feel anything! \r Also, I was happy I could do it even if I wear contact lenses.\r The other positive thing is that it is very fast and it lasts long (4weeks), without any inconvenience: you can do whatever you want without it taking off.\r \r I definitely strongly recomend it to any person wanting to be made up everyday without having nothing to do for it! Pros: Atmosphere, service, very professional, comfort Cons: I can't find any! more

Best Bridal Hair and Makeup 2/26/2007

I am getting married in May and I have gone to a couple of hair salons to get ideas about my hair and makeup for the big day. None was like Takamichi Hair. I always left the other salons feeling unhappy and confused, because either the makeup was totally over the top or my hair was simply not me. \r \r My close friend is a devoted customer and suggested Takamichi Hair. My friend has light features and I have dark features so I was worried that the stylist wouldn?t know how to work with my skin tone and untamed curls. I also have an extremely hard time matching colors to my skin tone. \r \r Takahiro styled my hair and makeup and it matched exactly to my personality! When I first walked in I did not even know what I wanted, but Takahiro was extremely patient with me and talked with me to find out precisely what I needed. I was very surprised at how he read me so well. \r \r For my hair, I wanted something elegant without being over the top, but I also didn't want that messy look either. It sounds almost contradicting, but Takahiro knew exactly what I wanted! For my makeup, he explained that I needed a little more makeup for photos, I don?t normally wear that much makeup so I was scared to look cakey, but he made it look very natural and stunning. \r \r more
