Relaxed, professional hair salon in Soho – I was recommended to see Cynthia Torres for a haircut from a friend of mine who thought she was really good. I have already exhausted just about every reasonable hair salon in this city so I thought I'd give her a try. I just went recently and was in dire need of a neatly styled hairdo by that point. Cynthia was really nice, friendly and took her time in cutting my hair the way I knew I wanted it done. She didn't rush me out the door, like other stylists do, and the salon atmosphere was very relaxed, low key and friendly--not loud, crazy-busy nor was anyone acting pretentious or snobby. Cynthia was very conversational, confident, and focused, though yes, she is a really young woman, she certainly knows what she's doing. My hair is difficult to cut and because I wanted a lot of angling done on a short, layered bob, she even took the time to flat iron my hair so it would be easier to cut. I didn't like the way it looked after it was really flattened out, but when I got home and washed it, it was back to it's old self. I found a couple of spots that she had missed when I got home, and maybe it was because I wasn't able to see those spots after she was done, but I'm sure she would've fixed them if I had noticed them because I'm very picky about the style being "just so." But overall, I was very happy with the cut and the whole experience and would definitely go back to her again. Cynthia, you rock and you're my new hair stylist guru. Also for the city and Soho, the price of the cut was pretty reasonable... not cheap but not overly expensive either.
cynthia and jesus - my perfect duo – i don't need to tell you how hard it is to find your "perfect" colorist and "perfect" stylist that you can trust. i moved to new york 3,5 yrs ago and that was one of my biggest concerns. well, this is my "perfect" spot with a "perfect" duo - cynthia and jesus. cynthia - very receptive to my styling wants and needs. and she proved to have a good eye on what looks good. i usually keep my hair about medium length but i'm very sensitive about my bangs, so every time cynthia manages to add a new glamorous touch to it mixing it up a bit and keeping me happy. jesus - keeps up a great job on my highlights. it's this great non-bimbo shade of blonde that is undertoned by my natural dirty blonde.
in addition to that, salon is very welcoming. despite of the lack of the sign outside, the staff is very caring, interior looks great and a glass of wine is offered.
cynthia and jesus have been taking care of me for 2 yrs now and i continue to get a ton of complements on my hair - that's a pretty objective measure of the quality these guys provide. two thumbs up.
My New Beauty Saloon... – Cynthia has a good sense of styling. I recommend her to you all gals. She does not mess up your hair or give you some crapy layer. I had a hair dresser before that put her own creativity on me. of course..SHE IS OUT. Even tho the drive is far, but i will only go to someone i trust for my hair. Saloon also offers facials and sells hair products.
cynthia looks too young to be this good! – I got my hair cut from cynthia as a walk-in and I love the cut! She looks young so I was a little pesemistic at first because I thought perhaps she lacked the experience I like in a stylist to give a great cut. but I was pleasantly surprised. she gave me a great cut and totally gave me what I asked for. she also gave me good suggestions to modify what I initially wanted so that it would be better for my hair type. i loved that. the result is a great look that I am so happy with. and at 80 was a great deal. plus she spent a long time with me paying attention to all the details that make a cut really top notch. to top it off she is the most down to earth stylist i've ever met. so nice and normal. grew up in nyc, like me, so I felt right at home. most importantly though i left a very satisfied customer so thought I should give her kudos publicly to help another looking for a great cut at a good price!
Cynthia Torres = The Greatest – I have serious issues with getting my hair cut. That being said, I only trust Cynthia Torres to get the job done. She is the absolute best, charming, beautiful, and talented. This is the best salon in town, the atmosphere is relaxing and everyone is friendly and fun. Thank you Cynthia!
I will follow Jesus anywhere. He is a perfectionist and I love that. – Jesus has been doing my hair for several years now and it is always gorgeous, beautiful, perfect. I am spoiled to the point that no matter where I have to travel to see him, I just won't let anyone elso touch my hair anymore. I have lived and traveled all over the world so I have to tell you. JESUS IS THE MAN WITH THE HANDS FOR MY HAIR, SO LADIES OR MEN, IF YOU WANT YOUR HAIR TO LOOK FABULOUS, STOP GOING ALL THOSE OTHER PLACES, BECAUSE NOW YOU HAVE FOUND THE VERY BEST!!!
Jesus Incredible Color !!! – I have been a client of Jesus for many years and as I tell him, he can never leave the color profession. As a man I need my color to be very natural and Jesus does that in Spades, I get tons of complement about how good my hair looks but they can't put their finger on why, He's that GOOD. Once when Jesus was not available I made a huge mistake and had it done by someone else, WRONG, never again. I won't let anyone else touch it. Do yourself a Big Big favor and see Jesus for your color, he is Professional, fun and he will not Disappoint, all that, and in a cool environment to boot. I almost don't want to tell anyone else about him in fear I'll never get an appointment again but he deserves all the praise and then some, from me and all that have reviewed him before.
Cynthia Torres is a great stylist for cuts and special occasions – I first met Cynthia when she was working for Nick Arrojo of "What Not to Wear" fame. She has excellent training and New York sophistication. Cynthia's best asset is that she absolutely listens to her clients. When I only want a tiny trim, she never takes too much length. The last time I saw her I was ready for a change, and she was able to totally reshape my cut without sacrificing length. When she offers her suggestions they are always thoughtful and spot-on. She's fun to talk to and a total bargain. You will not find a better deal on a great cut in the city.
Cynthia also traveled to the Hamptons to do hair for my four bridesmaids, my mother and me. She spent hours at my trial trying different ways to get the style I wanted. On the day of the wedding she was on time and came totally prepared with everything she needed, including a special shampoo which helped my hair to hold the style better. My hair looked exactly as I wanted it to and the curls held so long I was able to wear my hair down the next day to my brunch. All of the bridesmaids and my mom looked stunning. They looked like extra glam versions of themselves, which in my opinion is the best styling. Everything she did suited each girl's style and the style of the wedding.
Cynthia is great with any type of hair, but mine is semi-curly/wavy, and she gets an A+ for her ability to cut and style my hair. It's difficult to find stylists who are really good with curly hair, and Cynthia is a treasure.
Damn I look good! – Very professional. As soon as I walked into the salon, it was very pleasant and relaxing. The attention I received felt personal - everyone in the salon made me feel like I should be there. Cynthia Torres gave me a celebrity haircut and I didn't even have to rob a bank to pay for it. This site only lets me give five stars, but it's a lot more than that. It's the experience. Thanks Cynthia, and thank you beauty group! See you next week!
Logan is GREAT!!! – My haircut by Logan was the best I have ever gotten!!! He was incredibly professional, personable & caring. He took the time to get to know what I wanted and what I was looking for in cut & style. Sitting in Logan's chair, I knew that I was in good hands. I had complete trust in him & his work. He is a true artist with the scissors and gave me exactly what I was looking for. He is AMAZING and I HIGHLY recommend him!!!
