“Vanilla has a very nice, attentive staff and the salon is comfortable and non-pretentious, with very reasonable prices!”
“Finally relief from a great place!”
“I am staying here Vanilla Hair Spa I thank you for your great service and fixing my hair a loyal client”
“My hair was a disaster , I had gone to a very expensive salon in Mid town that was recommened to me from a co worker.”
Leon is a real professional!.
Wanted to join the group of reviewers to compliment a stylist working in Vanilla Hair place. After talking to my co-worker - impressed by her new stylish haircut, I asked for reference and was referred to Leon in Vanilla Hair. He was very instrumental in selecting a right style for my thin and wavy hair (I went there for the haircut and a blow-dry) politely listening to my requests and explanations, while making his suggestions based on his experience and professional knowledge. He made me feel like my new modern look was a team-work product, where in reality he did all the work, and a great one! Leon is a great professional, with amazing personality, tact and a pride for his profession.
I don’t live in the city, just work there. Definitely will return to Leon, and actually look forward to it.
BTW, Leon is a unisex stylist; when I walked into the place he was just finishing up a young guy hairstyle, and again, it was tasteful, stylish, and individualized.
I will be posting same review on Yelp - would like to help as many people as possible to find a “professional” hairstylist. Enjoy!
Great spa. really like, good spa and service.
Haircut fine BUT bad biz practice.
I trimmed off a long section of my hair myself and just needed to get the rough edges shaped (simple bob).
I was a walk-in on Feb 5 2010, advertised as $25. Again, no complaint about the cut BUT the stylist did not tell me that "sure" to a blowdry would take the charge from 25 to 57 dollars!
This is a very bad business practice of non-disclosure. I would have said NO to the blow-dry, esp. since I had a quick trim. the receptionist gave me the brush-off and wouldn't look me in the eye when I complained.
May file complaint with BBB.

just perfect. I live in a small city where it is really hard to find a good stylist, let alone one who customizes a cut/color according to hair type, face shape, etc. My cut from Ilena is unbelievable--I now fear that I need to travel 450 miles every 8 weeks to keep it in shape. She took a great deal of time to make sure that everything was PERFECT--and it is!!! She then talked about color and suggested a different shade for my highlights. Even though I wasn't scheduled for color, Ilena fit me into her schedule and did and incredible job. I loved everything about my experience at this salon--I recommend it to anyone!! See ya in a couple of months, Ilena!!
NICE SALON. IT IS SO CLOSE TO MY APARTMENT ON THE UPPER EAST SIDE. I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE COMMING OUT OF THE STORE,AND LOOKING VERY GOOD . I TOOK MY CHANCE AND WALKED IN. I HAD LINDA DO MY HAIR. SHE IS VERY NICE ,EVEN IF SHE RIDES A MOTORCYCLE(DONT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER) ..AND SHE DID MY HAIR EXCELLENT ... AS LONG AS I LIVE IN THE TRI STATE AREA , I AM HER CLIENT ......GOOD WORK LINDA AND THANKS AGAIN FOR MY GREAT HAIR......ACTUALLY EVEN IF I HAD TO RELOCATE, I MIGHT FIND A WAY TO FIT A TRIP TO NYC TO GET MY HAIR DONE BY HER....DEFINITE KEEPER...THANKS AGAIN VERY SATISFIED
Great place... I had hair down the shoulders and i wanted to cut is off completely. i went to three places and noone wanted to do it for me and i was very upset about it. One of my friends attends this salon often and she told me that they have great walk-in specials. On Monday i called, and the receptionist was so kind and so helpfull (remember first impression is a key). So she booked me with Judy. She cut my hair exactly how i wanted it. The hair cut was so great that i didn't even think it was going to look that beatiful on me. I was very happy and the price was less than what it should be. Highly reccomend the place. The staff is very kind.
Great Blowouts. Dennis did my blowout on a whim one Saturday afternoon when I couldn't get an appt. at one of the "high end" salons. It turned out to be the best I've ever gotten in the city---even better than Bumble and Bumble!
Dennis is the best.
I was referred to Dennis 4 years ago because I needed someone to save my hair after a very bad hair extension job done by another salon. Ever since that moment he has been my hero making sure my hair looks fab even when I style it and not only when I leave the salon.
I love to walk in every time, sit down and just let it happen. Whatever he does to my hair it's always spot on and I never get that question of "how do you want it". Because I'm not the expert and I don't know what works for me. But now I know that Dennis definitely makes it work for me.
Thanks Dennis. You rock! Every time.
I was sent to Linda , to style and highlight my hair . A friend recommended her to me . The stroe is very pretty. The recepcionst was very nice and helpful. The girl who washed my hair did a relaxing head massage for me .........ahhhhhh..... that was the best! My hair came out fantastic ! I love my cut , and my Highlights look beautiful and my hair feels soft and looks shinny.
If you need to have your hair look great , go see Linda.
Perfect Blonde Highlights!!. I have been going to Ilena at Vanilla Hair Spa for about 2 years now and she truly is the "Blonde Specialist" for highlights. I have tried numerous very expensive NYC salons and gotten disasterous results ( the color kept coming out a horrible blond/orange color). I love beige/ash blonde highlights and thought it was hopeless that no colorist would EVER get it right, but when I found Ilena, I got EXACTLY what I asked for! Vanilla has a very nice, attentive staff and the salon is comfortable and non-pretentious, with very reasonable prices! GO TO VANILLA!! :-)
