Thank you Meira!
I Had a few unresolved issues with my hair by another stylist and was almost convinced that I'd have to live with terrible hair for another summer , but through recommendation I found Meira and took the chance to meet and consult with her.
I am extremely happy and satisfied with the job she has done repairing my damaged hair and correcting my Straightening and bad haircut .
My experience with the service and the fact that I got 100% of her attention was assuring and allowed me to relax for the time I was there.
She had a lot of valuable information to offer, a great personality and comes across as dedicated to the job she does.
Moving forward, I'm happy I've found the right person to help maintain my beautiful hair.
I highly recommend service by Meira Ottomano
I recently had my GreatLengths Hair
Extensions done with Meira and again, she did a wonderful job. They are comfortable from day one. I've had these done elsewhere in the past and have had discomfort for at least 2 weeks.
I'm very happy to have a stylist that is as consistent in her work as she is in her advise on not only how I can help myself best maintain my extensions but on how I can help my own hair through this process. And her advise works.
Meira was referred to me by an out of town friend that was in NY on business and was as impressed with her welcoming, professional and thorough manner as I am each time I'm there.
I am a lady that will always have my hair done (always did)!
" Meira ! I enjoy your energetic personality and I am extremely happy I can count on you to understand my styling needs ."
Great Job Meira....... I get my extensions done at Peter Louis. I have struggled with alopecia for a couple years and Meira did the best job ever covering up my spots with light weight extensions that don't pull on my hair or cause further hair loss. Over the past year she has helped me wean myself off extensions as my hair continued to get better. Meira takes her time during every step to ensure the best results, and I honestly have great results and could not trust another person more with my hair. Thank you Meira!
Well done Peter!. Very happy with the outcome. Considering I had a mental day at work, it was a spur of a moment decision to have some "pick me up". I went there with a Groupon Now! voucher expecting so so service considering it was a voucher service. I came out of the place looking amazing. My hair was washed beautifully and very energetic. Blow-out was done by Peter himself and I love the fact he was not trying to sell me anything or criticize my hair. He was very easy to talk to, very professional and he took his time with my hair and I have plenty of hair! I was complimented by everyone who I spoke to. Very happy indeed!!
Good job -- see you soon, Corina!!. I love long hair. I always have and always will. But DNA is not on my side, so instead of waiting a hundred years for my hair to grow I go to my Great Lengths good fairy Corina at Peter Louis salon where she does her magic. I’ve tried other brands but there’s nothing like Great Lengths for me. The texture and shine are amazing, definitely not synthetic Barbie hair that I have had the unfortunate chance of experiencing (what a nightmare). Not only does Corina do my extensions she also colors my hair because she understands what I want. Yes I sound very demanding, but I know what I want and I get it all at Peter Louis salon.
Thank you, guys, you're the best!!. Amazing, amazing, amazing...everything you need all in one place! I love this salon.
Maria is the best!!!.
Before I came to Peter Louis Salon to have the Japanese Hair Straightening, it would take me an hour to flat iron (and kill) my hair. My friends are loyal customers and always raved about Maria. I was hesitant to spend so much money on my hair, but once it was done, and to this day, I feel it was the best money I ever spent on myself.
Maria did an incredible job. Every single strand of my hair is pin straight. She had sooooo much patience. My hair is really long, so it took almost 4 hours for her to do the flat ironing part. She must have been in so much pain, but didn
Color Me Happy. My work brought me to NYC from LA and after several months I was desperate to find a colorist/stylist to do my highlights. Serendipity (and the need to have hair extensions removed) took me to the Peter Louis Salon on east 57th and to Meira. My experience with Meira and my difficult hair extension removal gave me confidence to try color with her. I've been with the same colorist in LA for over 10 years - colorist to the stars, yet I prefer the highlights I received with Meira. She took time with me, discussing what I wanted and what she planned to do. Not only did I love the results, I enjoyed the calm, relaxed salon experience and Meira's professional yet extremely personal manner. She also styled my hair beautifully and I couldn't be happier. Of course with any quality salon be prepared to pay a competitive price. With that said, it was noticeably less than what I pay in LA and it was well worth the money. Meira's care, expertise and overall kindness will be greatly missed when I return to LA.
Meira Ottomano for BEST japanese straightening.
After years of HATING my dry, frizzy, curly hair & dreading the rain or even the slightest humidity I started to do a lot of research on japanese straightening. I searched all over the internet and saw some very scary reviews from women whose hair was destroyed & some amazing reviews from those who loved it. The product could be the same, but the ultimate deciding factor which determined success or disaster seemed to be the stylist who does the job.
Since I didnt know anyone personally who had done this before it took me a long time to get up the courage to trust someone. I hated my hair but damaging it further wouldve been disastrous. So, I did hours of research, through the Milbon website & read hundreds of reviews, said a prayer and found Meira. There were a few others who I had my eye on who also had great reviews but something about what was said about her sparked my interest. Anyway, I took the chance and went to see her. She took her time and explained everything so well that it was apparent she knew this process INSIDE & OUT which put my mind at ease. I also saw her book with pics of before and afters which was very helpful to see. But the ultimate test was the actual results.
Meira did an unbelievable, AMAZING job. If you see/touch my hair you could never ever tell that it was straightened. Its really silky, shiny and soft. It looks like naturally straight, healthy hair. Somehow it looks like the product even reversed the last 8 years of damage done by my flat iron. Its like totally different hair...unrecognizable.
Meira is the ONLY person I will ever allow to use this product on my hair, because although the product is wonderful, if the stylist is not properly trained, experienced, careful and really just good at it, it could have very bad results. Meira is not only talented but you can tell she really loves what she does. She really explains every step and exactly what she is doing. She is a real professional and has a client for life in my and MY MOM. My mom is in her early 70's and also was tired of constantly blow drying her naturally curly hair so she had it done as well with the same wonderful results. Everything I said is DITTO for her! We will both be back religiously for touchups on new hair growth. I could never ever go back to being a slave to the flat iron. I love washing my hair now. I do not blow dry or use any kind of heat styling at all. Out of the shower I comb my hair and let it air dry. Washing my hair was always such a long and tiring PROCESS and the worst part about it was that as soon as I went outside in the humidity all that work was out the window anyway. I lived in NYC much of my life and going out in the rain was the ultimate mood killer because whether just trying to quickly catch a cab or walk to the train, it usually meant being exposed to the elements for a few minutes and thats all it took to ruin 1.5 hours of hair ironing. So frustrating. Now I have NO fear of rain or any type of humidity. My hair looks just as good in any weather and regardless I spend no time on it in general. If I am going out to an event or something dressy I will spend maybe 5-10 minutes to curl the ends and bangs with a dryer, thats it. If you are going to have this done, I can promise you that Meira is the best, safest way to go. I could not be happier.
Great cut and color!. I went to the salon today for a cut and color after hearing positive feedback from a friend. Everyone was very friendly. The service was great and I left very happy with my new hair style! Peter did the cut and Corina did my color. They took their time and ended up doing just what I wanted!
