Never ever make an appointment with DAVID! He just ruined my whole day making my highlights ORANGE instead of the requested blonde. And that only for 180 Dollars. Thank you very much!
Melyssa is the best!! – Melyssa is the absolute best!! You won't be disappointed. i am very picky with my hair and couldn't be more thrilled with her work. Melyssa listened to me and gave me what I wanted and made my hair look even better than I could imagine. I have been going to her for almost 2 years now and she even did my hair and my entire wedding party's hair for my wedding! Everyone never looked better. Ask for Melyssa she is wonderful!
Melissa is a mind reader! – I just moved to nyc and was looking for a hairstylist, I loved my coworkers hair and she sent me to Melissa.
She made me feel comfortable and had some great ideas and suggestions for my color and even suggested some bangs which i was a little nervous about but when I saw the final product I was thrilled! It was THE BEST HAIR I have ever had!! I thought the price was very reasonable and even got a hand massage and she offered to have my make up done to finish up my makeover! I got tons of complements, people even stop me on the street, I cant wait to go back!!!!!!!
DAWN is the BEST STYLIST ON THE UES – HI all you UES gals and guys... I reside on the UES in the East 90's and want to tell you about this great shop and operator. I am a former hairstylist who worked at Bergdorf Goodman and had been in the beauty industry for some time. I know my great stylists. Her name is Dawn and she works in the East 86th Street Scott J Salon. She is a fabulous stylist, and COLORIST. Gals if you want a dynamite blonde hi-lighting like REALLY white blonde she is your gal. I have gone for years to Pierre Michel, Cutler Salon and Fekkai and NO ONE ever gave me such white hilights... SHE LISTENS and she KNOWS what your needs are. Great at CUTS and bloouts too ladies..... SHe has given me such hilights htis week I wanted all to know you MUST see her. DO NOT waste your money going to East 57th Street and ya come out miserable and crying. Go to East 86th Street and you will be as thrilled as me. When I went into my building on East 94th Street so MANY PEOPLE stopped me and said they love my hair.... So hop on over to DAWN on EAST 86th St. NO I do not work there nor do i know her before my hair color!! Your trated geat by the staff and its such a cozy warm environment......
aveda 86TH street is the best in nyc – i AM A RETIRED hAIRSTYLIST and worked at Bergdorf Goodman in the late 70's and I know my hair color!! I live on the UES and stumbled upon this AVEDA shop and its the BEST.......Gals forget about 57th Street. No one has been more of a hair snob than myself!!!!! I have gone to John Barrett, Tricomi, Licari, Cutler Salon, Pierre Michel for the past 25 years.... I HAD the BEST COLOR ever by a gal named ALYSSA. You can find her in the AVEDA SHOP on 114th Street and Broadway..... SHe had colored my hair now four times and its STUNNING. I am a natural blonde and went red two years ago at the Cutler Salon. Cutler told me it would be too hard to go back to Blonde... ALyssa got me back to blonde after the first time. ITS JUST an exquisite light light blonde like i wanted it...... She is warm, engaging and a great listener to what your needs are......SHe is dynamite at blowing your hair out too. My hair is way down my shoulders need my tush and she knows how to cut long hair too!!! I am forever sticking with ALYSSA!! I know it sounds like I have stock in AVEDA but guys believe me I stumbled upon a great shop and wanted all to know about it!!!!!!!!! Alyssa is a dynamite stylist and if you want great color she is the one. BTW.. she gave my Mom who is 86 the most stunning hilights over red hair and MOM feels and looks great!! What more can we ask for.. THe staff is warm, attentive and you get a nice hand massage while your waiting for your color to process. Nice products too to buy........It 99 percent natural and thats what we all need.....Do not listen to bad reviews they are the "bomb"... There is also a really great gal at 86th street who gives a great blowout and then uses the curing iron. Her name is Dawn... SOOOOOO GOOD WITH THE BLOWER.... SO if you want really great color and have been bounced around alot this is the place for you. I am soo tired of those 57th Street attitudes and walk out after spending hundreds of dollars and I am miserable... So ALyssa on 114th Street and Broadway is the one..... THen you can go to Ollies for a great Chinese meal across the street!! Hey its a NYU adventure.... ENjoy and I hope your hair looks great... Robin and MOM Helen from the UES
Completely un-relaxing – Went for spa services and was kept waiting 10 minutes. The staff had attitudes, the service was not good, and my facial was cut short by 15 minutes. When I asked about this why this was the case, my question was evaded and no apology was offered.
I looked famous. No pictures please! – I had scheduled an appointment to get my makeup done with Miguel.. I had never been to Scott J before and did not know what to expect. I was greeted at the door and someone took my jacket and offered me a seat at the makeup station. I was given a glass of white wine which was so nice of them. Miguel started working on me and has the softest touch ever. I enjoyed the fact that he took his time with me and really paid attention to what I had in mind, and tweaked it with his personal style and expertise and really showed true detailing in his work. When it was time for the unveiling, I was amazed. My problem skin was covered flawlessly and I looked hotter than I ever did. I had an amazing night because of his work and the pleasurable experience there at the Scott J salon on East 86th Street. I will be there again soon so that Miguel can make me gorgeous for my next night out on the town, or just to give myself a small treat. Theres nothing better than feeling beautiful, except looking it! Thanks Miguel
5 STAR SERVICE – I love Scott J salons, their friendly staff always gives exceptional service. Warm and friendly greeting everytime I walk in with a tea offering, even if you are only shopping for products. Everyone is very knowledgable with the products, they ask me questions to determine what I am looking for not just trying to sell me product that I don't need. Weather its getting my hair done, getting a facial, waxing or a massage. It is definitely some place I send my friends to. Great prices and great service, AND where else in NY do you get a complimentary makeup touch up before you leave. I leave feeling like I was VIP everytime.
Thank you Scott J!
Loyal client – My Husband and I have been getting our hair done by Melyssa since 2004. We love her and she does a great job. Since she is the professional and I trust her she makes suggestions and I go with it. I've never been disappointed. Now my 1 year old son gets his hair cut by her. Rochelle does my eyebrows and is amazing!
i love this place! – im not sure why there are so many bad reviews about Scott J Salon. I usually go to the one on the Upper West Side, which i LOVE LOVE LOVE, but they were doing renovations there so I came to this salon about a month ago and i had a great experience and loved my hair! Because of my 3 yrs of awesome experiences at Scott J on Columbus, and one one great haircut on E 86th, I am a true believer in all the Scott J Salons and would go to any one of them before id go anywhere else in the city!!
