At the Yann Varin Salon we want to transform your haircut into your Signature Style. A style that is completely customized to you - in French terms "sur measure". In order to create your Signature Style we personalize our approach and in doing so respect: the concept of visagisme, the nature of your hair and, most importantly, what you want.
We never want to create a style which goes against the nature of your hair's characteristics. We want to be realistic - to focus on a look that you can easily replicate at home. Our main priority is to create a style that you can maintain on a daily basis. We can guide you on how to recreate this look yourself.
Communication and expert craftsmanship are the foundations of our success. …
If you are looking for a colorist, Brittany is BRILLIANT. I wouldn't trust anyone else to color my hair, I absolutely love her.
I never write reviews, but this time I felt i should mention Brittany. I've been searching for a great colorist and stylist for awhile. I go to these salons and just feel like another customer sitting in their chair. Varin has been a different story though, Brittany has been awesome. Her coloring skills are fantastic and the past two months people keep complimenting me on my hair and color. I don't look washed out anymore. My hair has felt a lot healthier too, it doesn't feel dry or anything. My boyfriend has even talks about how soft my hair is. Total plus! If there is anyone looking for a new salon... go to Varin and definitely schedule with Brittany. Actually, switch and try this place because I think you'll be so pleased. My experience has been awesome and I feel like I've found my go-to salon and stylist!
Loved my hair cut by Riccardo...would highly recommend him to anyone and the salon overall is outstanding. I have since gone back for highlights with Theresa and they are outstanding. I get so many compliments on my cut and color...so happy!!
I have been going to Aurora at Varin since 2008. I moved to Boston in 2009 and Miami in 2012 but continue to only get my hair cut when I am in NYC by Aurora because she does such a great job. Everyone at the salon is incredibly friendly and nice. I highly recommend it, it's worth traveling thousands of miles for!
I have basically followed Lauren around for the past 4 years because she just gives me a great haircut. I have pretty thick hair and I like a long layered look but I also need my hair thinned out and Lauren always manages to do it just the right way and my haircut looks great and I always get compliments. Everyone at the salon is very friendly and it's always been a great experience.
I have been looking all over Manhattan for someone who specializes in Balayage. Tried many upscale Salons and Sarah is the best hands down!
Such a great experience! Ricardo gave me a super fresh look. His haircuts are amazing, I highly recommend him.
Ricardo's Keratin Treatment. Ricardo is like a sculptor as he works each strand through the keratin treatment process. The first two times he used the flatiron in the usual way. This time, I wanted to keep some waves -- without frizz. He used curling irons instead of the flat iron. Unbelievable. The hair I've already wanted!
Lauren is a hair GENIUS!!!! Super cute cut and style!.
Absolutely LOVE this salon and Lauren for giving me the best cut and style, time and time again!!! My hair looks amazing... THANK YOU!!
FINALLY i have found a consistently great stylist:
Lauren at Varin Salon has never failed to make my hair look absolutely GORGEOUS! In the past, my hair has been a challenge for stylists because its thick and unruly. I have had more than my fair share of rush cuts/blow-outs to keep on schedule, which is very disappointing after you shell out top dollar for a cut and expect to come out looking like a million bucks. Lauren always makes me feel comfortable and takes the time to make my hair absolutely perfect. I honestly have never had a bad cut from her, and I have changed the length and style of my hair numerous times. I even tried, and was pleasantly surprised by, chunky bangs - a style I haven't rocked since I was a toddler. She has a great eye and somehow manages to incorporate my "vision of the month" into something that compliments my bone structure, hair type and personality. So glad I found this girl...!
I really can't recommend this salon and Lauren enough. My hair looks great the day after I get it cut, no waiting 2 weeks for the "shock" of the cut to quell. Everyone at Varin is warm and pleasant, the environment is calm and beautiful, and last time I was there the shampoo girl (a total sweetheart) gave me an amazing head massage! I was almost lulled to sleep as she was doing her shampooing thing. Its little details like that that make for a wonderful, come-back-again experience. A+ sylist and salon.
Thanks again, Lauren... My hair is looking beautiful these days!!!
ps. I feel like this sounds like an ad or something, but just look at all of the other reviews giving the same 5 stars. They validate the authenticity of mine. This place is awesome. I'm writing it b/c this place and stylist deserve it.
I love the varin salon!. For the last 10 years I have be going to the Varin Salon They are simply the best in the city. For color, blows & cuts. I wouldn't go anywhere else . Judy does my blowouts & Teresa my color. Totally professional & classy. I also must mention the amazing shampoos & neck massages. I have sent so many of my friends here & they also have had a great experience.
