Excellent experience, men's haircut – I've had my hair cut at Salon Stanley 3 times, twice by Stanley's mom, and once by another guy whose name I can't remember. Every time has been excellent.
I've tried various different salons since I was 18, in London (UK) and New York. In two of the worlds largest and most cosmopolitan cities it shouldn't be hard to get a good haircut, right? I've tried $200 per cut salons, and $10 per cut salons, and Stanley's has been consistently better than any of them.
Finally found a place I can rely on to get a decent haircut!
Worst haircut I have in years – Stanley gave me one of the worst hair cut I have in years. I showed him the picture of the hair style I want. I asked for his suggestion and whether my hair would look like the picture after the cut. He said yes. He just doesn't know how to layer the hair of someone who has thick hair. He gave me the worse layer ever. The good part is that I didn't let him cut too short. So, I still can tie my hair up. Now, I wish my hair grow back soon. I want to cry.
Also, he try to charge me more than what he told me.
This women did not give me a chance to cut her hair. She tried telling me what to do step by step as if she was my instructor and i was the student.
No client in my salon ever leaves unhappy! i give my best and all to make sure every client leaves looking and feeling great!!!
If I had the chance to do what im best at, im sure she would be very happy as well!
Fantastic haircut at a reasonable price – I gave Stanley a try based on the many outstanding reviews on citisearch and was not disappointed.
Though I came in with my own ideas as to what I wanted done with my hair, I didn't regret listening to Stanley's suggestions, and ended with one of the best haircuts I've ever had.
My previous experience with hair salons has been that my hair only looked great when I left the salon, because it had been perfectly blow-dried, which I could never re-create at home.
By contrast, Stanley spent most of his time cutting my hair with a lot of attention to detail (especially when sculpting the side-swept bangs), such that my hair now needs minimal styling and is very versatile. He gave me a fresh look with much more body that could easily be styled to look more conservative or more fun.
I hardly got any work done the next day because of the many compliments I got for my hair ... :-)
I will definitely be back.
Terrific Gem on the Upper East Side – I NEVER write reviews, but feel it's necessary to inform you about the wonderful experience I had at Salon Stanley. I went there today for the first time and showed up over 1.5 hours late due to unforeseen circumstances. Stanley, the owner, greeted me and accommodated me immediately. He listened attentively about the issues I had with my previous haircut and highlights. He was very attentive and addressed everything perfectly. I felt like he read my mind, in a way, as he cut my hair in a way that I thought would be flattering but was too afraid to make such a change.
I had highlights, some corrective coloring, and a haircut and it was reasonably priced. It's cheaper than some of the so-called up-scale salons I've been to in the city but it delivers higher quality. The price tag ($250) is totally worth it. I mean, how often are you able to have the owner of a salon cut AND color your hair for such a reasonable rate?
I must also add a comment on how friendly the staff is at the salon. There are many locals that go to this salon 2-3 times a week and everyone who works there makes everyone feel at home and comfortable.
I LOVE MY HAIR!!!
AMAZING! – I read all of the reviews online and decided to go in for a consultation last week. From the moment I walked in the door, I had a good feeling about this salon. I am one of the many girls with longer hair who doesn't want to chop it all off, but I was in need of something different. Khris gave me exactly what I wanted. I got more compliments on my hair in the past week than I have in years. Don't doubt the great reviews. They are great reviews because it is a wonderful salon!
Love the hairstyle – I'm new to town and I was really worried about going to a salon where I didn't have any personal connections, but after a haircut with Stanley I'm definitely going back! He listened to exactly what I wanted, and gave me a cut I can style on my own and still looks great! I definitely recommend it for anyone looking to get a fresh style!
Brilliant Hairstylist! – i've gotten a lot of haircuts in my time. And i felt it was time to chop it all off. I needed to lose my length and go short. Normally i go to my hair stylist and i tell her and she simply cuts. Stanley made it so that I wasn't telling him, he was offering to do something unique with my hair. Something that suits my face and is different and edgy because i'm at the age where i can play around with my hair. It was my first time going to his salon, and i gave him the go ahead and now i have this brilliant and totally different hair cut that i love! =D he's a brilliant guy who listens and thinks creatively and I highly recommend him! it's worth every penny!
I am difficult to please and if you don't listen, I am not happy. Stanley heard everything I told him and gave me exactly the cut and color that I wanted.
My husband keeps telling me how pretty I am... I guess Stanley got it right.
UES Top Hair Salon – Overview:
I highly recommend Salon Stanley. Stanley's staff fit me into his busy schedule and Stanley took care of me himself. I got a great haircut and enjoyed my time spent at the salon.
I live on the UES and usually travel to Astoria to get my hair cut. My stylist there is great and the price is right BUT it is a hike and I have to plan my whole day around it. On a Friday I found out I had a client meeting on Monday AM. My layers had grown out and were in that desperate need of attention. On Saturday I checked out citysearch to see some options in my neighborhood and came across Salon Stanley. The reviews were positive so I called. They were booked for the weekend and could fit me in on Monday PM. I explained my plight and they fit me in on Sunday with Stanley.
He sat me in the chair and said "let's talk” I was like here we go he's going to try to convince me to do something edgy or go super short. Just the opposite. He complimented my choice of style and agreed it was best for my face. We did go shorter but only 2 inches.
He washed and cut my hair the whole time keeping me at ease with interesting conversation. He didn't try to upsell me with color which lead me to asking him about what his thoughts were on highlights. He recommended some color options and took the time to show me samples and how they would look in my hair.
If you want a great haircut for a decent NYC price, check out Salon Stanley. Stanley is awesome and I will be back for highlights!
Great cuts! Even your family will love it! – I decided to try a haircut by Stanley after a recommendation from one of my friends. Up to this point, I had been getting my hair cut on Long Island and was nervous to find someone on my own. Stanley was very skilled at knowing exactly what would look good on me. I loved it!! When I debuted my new style to my boyfriend and mom, they hardly recognized me. They both loved it so much that they insisted I go back to Stanly everytime I need a cut. Stanley has become a household name. I definitely recommend him! Even your family will love what he does for your hair!
