“These large places definitely turn out a good product and the atmosphere is bustling, but I am a convert to a more spa like approach and desire more personal attention.”
“would highly recommend Ueno, excellent cut, beautiful products & great coffee :)”
“Owner/stylist Yoko Ueno is like a little elf jumping around you, cutting your hair as you sit comfortably in her beautiful and understated salon, sipping fresh coffee and reading a 1950's Vogue.”
“Also, the magazine selection is incredible due to the vintage fashion mags from the 50's and 60's.”
“friendly staff, great tea and the place smells like heaven!”
“Yoko's technique was great and I would definitely go back!”
“friendly staff, good cuts :)”
“best style cutt price and ambience for your buck!”
“The usual routine for me after a haircut is to: bawl about how terrible it looks, wait a few months for it to completely grow out, then wait as long as possible before i have to get back into the sick cycle of haircuts.”
Look at this great haircut done at Ueno!.
I interview people on the street with great hair and put it on my website.
To check out one of the haircuts done by Satsuki at Ueno google my site What Cut & Where, click Blog when you get on my site and view the Blog entry where I interviewed Tsukasa.
Great blowouts!!. Rreally great blowouts by Yuki!!! I'll be back!!
friendly staff, good cuts :). superb service, uses good products, has a nice system that keeps track of regular customers and their needs! My haircut last week was quite good, and I had a very pleasant time chatting with the staff. It may not be the place to go if you want an extremely stylized hair cut, but they defintely know how to do hair well.
good hair. best style cutt price and ambience for your buck!! true NYC haircut.. Worth the walk .. I live in NYC and style is big ...good find citysearch
Shh.... This was my second haircut with the salon, and I left loving it more than I did the first time. Apart from the warm, cozy atmosphere, they deliver amazing results (and at a great price).
Amazing cut!. I just went to Ueno for the first time this weekend and I selected it after doing a little internet research. Junko did my cut and it was AMAZING! She made sure to sit me down and ask exactly what i wanted a few different times just to make sure the length was what i had in mind. The cut was absolutely perfect, she angled it and layered it perfectly. (My hair is past my shoulders and the cut was $70 plus tip). The only downside for this salon is the atmosphere- its strictly for those that want an amazing cut and nothing else. Its tiny and looks like someones basement, so if you are looking for a spa-like atmosphere go somewhere else, However, the cuts are amazinggggg and if you can overlook the non-spa like atmosphere, its definitely worth it!
Relaxing and a great cut. I had a wonderful time! It was 90 something degrees out and i was hot and exhausted. I was given a wonderful shampoo and head massage. It cooled me right down and was so relaxing. Machiko cut my hair, and spend a good hour meticulously cutting and styling. I loved the result.
First timer and definitely pleased with Machiko!. The usual routine for me after a haircut is to: bawl about how terrible it looks, wait a few months for it to completely grow out, then wait as long as possible before i have to get back into the sick cycle of haircuts. I've been hopping around trying to find a stylist that won't make me miserable for the next three months, and i think I've found her. Machiko was super attentive to how i described the quirks of my hair, what i specifically didn't and did want out of my cut without having a definite idea of what i wanted. She soaked it all up and returned with a few cut ideas. I approved one and she went at it. Now, I've never been a fan of short cuts because my facial structure is round. i didn't want to look like a tennis ball face. However, after she explained every little detail of what she was going to perform, i felt reassured that this was a joint effort and not just her chopping my hair off. There were no surprises, except for how ridiculously pleased i was. i ended up with a cute chin length bob that didn't round my face. It's a versatile style with no fuss that can go upscale or casual with a little styling putty. I'm not used to paying so much for cuts (wash, cut, blowdry came out to be $70 and change, then you have to tack on a tip, and i needed to cab it there in order to make the appointment time) but i think it was definitely worth it for a full fledged style change. For a touch up, perhaps a cheaper place may work out. However, I've been completely wowed and will definitely return.
Would not make an appointment for me!. I was looking for a new hair salon, I haven't been too happy with anyone one salon recently to stick with them. I spent a few days reading reviews of hair salons downtown. I did my research, and decided on which salon and which stylist i was going to choose. I finally decided on Ueno Salon, and wanted to try Yoko who was highly recommended. When I called them up and told the receptionist that I'd like to make an appointment with Yoko the same day, she said no problem what time is good for you- we are very open today. So i asked for a 1:00 appt. and she then asked if i had been there before. I said no, my first time but i heard very good things. The receptionist proceeded to tell me, that there were no appointments fro her beacuse Yoko was not accepting any new clients! Was I calling a doctor and trying to get my insurance to pay for it??!! I couldn't believe that she went from- we are very open today, to no you cannot come here because Yoko would rather not work than accept a new client! Very disappointing after reading all the reviews. I walk by the salon everyday, and now it makes sense why I always see the hair stylists sitting around reading magazines and standing outside.
Wonderful. Only after getting a truly atrocious cut at a well-reviewed place, do I realize what I've found here. So what if the cut took sort of longer than I expected, or that the stylist didn't completely explain what he was going to do before starting. The product was amazing. I went to Ueno in September, after a brutal hair butcher cut off nearly half of my hair, utterly miserable and convinced there was no way to fix that mess up. Well, somehow, it was fixed. I think the process showed true talent and imagination. The reason the cut took a bit longer was because the stylist would stop after every few snips, in the beginning, to look at where he was going. The style I left with was the most flattering my hair has ever been. I was an idiot not to go back (hey, I have to transfer trains to get to Ueno).
