The HAIRCUT OF MY LIFE!!! I never thought my hair could look and feel this GREAT!
I have received nothing but RAVE REVIEWS from EVERYONE who has seen my new color and hairstyle from Haruo Noro in Ridgewood, NJ.
Haruo is an absolute genius with COLOR and terrifically MASTERFUL with his scissors! PERFECT CUT, OUTSTANDING COLOR!!! He takes his time and you receive a PRECISION CUT, like nothing you’ve ever had before.
Ladies, if you are in the market for a NEW YOU, GO TO HARUO, he will make you feel like a million bucks when you look in the mirror. Wonderfully talented man and very humble.
So, the hair color rivals anything you would get in Manhattan; the best, hands down, I've found in NJ. I can't say customer service is an ultimate priority, but it's a small price to pay given the convenience of NYC style in New Jersey.
A month ago, I made an appointment for hair straightening, the earliest appointment being in five weeks. While on vacation, the salon called and left a message to come in for a consultation. Being out of the state, I could not make it there that day - I actually didn't even know about it until I came home from vacation. Needless to say, my appointment was canceled. I was never told I had to have a consult when I made this appointment, nor was I ever told my appointment was canceled, although the receptionist said she tried to reach me. Growing up in Japan, I have had this treatment three times before and the procedure is as common there as getting your hair colored over here. I am baffled and deeply disappointed by their lack of communication and follow up. I am frustrated that I waited five weeks for nothing. Thank goodness we live close enough to NYC that there are many other options. I will NEVER go here.
experience for yourself – Beautiful place! Professional stylists! Great experience!!!
I travel great distances for Haruo – I am shocked by the negative reviews and find it strange that they follow a steady line of positive reviews. I suspect the new negative reviews may be fake.
I have been going to Haruo for years - both in NY and NJ - and the reason is that I have never before gotten so many compliments on my hair and also that Haruo is a true professional who will follow your directions or be creative and come up with suggestions if that's what you are looking for. I could not recommend Haruo and his salon more highly.
Avoid this hole – I wish I saw these reviews before I stopped in while I was thrift shopping on the weekend.
I spent almost $280 for a cut and color. The cut is OK but the color is eh.
This place is a scam... Reminds me of a try hard new york city salon.
The owner sure does enjoy ripping his customers off! They lost my business, raised prices 2-3 times in a short time.
Honestly "Run, Don't Walk!" – I've been meaning to write a review of "Haruo Noro Salon"...
Haruo Noro salon is located in a beautiful area of Ridgewood, New Jersey. Surrounding this chic and trendy salon, are quaint boutique stores, Zagat-rated restaurants, modern bars/lounges, and even a movie theater. Personally, I find it a godsend when dropping off a girlfriend to get their cut/color. In addition, this eliminates the time/energy of having to bridge and tunnel to New York City, pay parking and tolls, just for an amazing grooming experience.
Walking in, you'll be pampered to each and every need. They'll hang your coat, remember your favorite beverage (mine's diet coke in bottle shaped glasses), search for the perfect magazine for you (GQ), and even give you a relaxing massage!
The stylists here are very compassionate, concerned, and attentive to each clients needs. They'll first have a consultation with you to understand your goals and give you educated advice/feedback. I've never seen a stylist here not authentically working with their client and making sure they're comfortable.
The staff is very professional and polite. They'll go to great lengths so that you will feel right at home.
As for Haruo Noro, this man is an artist, period. My old paradigms of hairstyling was that it was just hair... he takes it to a whole other level. I believe a hairstyle can literally be the cornerstone of one's appearance, everything else supplements your hairstyle.
You'll be in good hands with Haruo... he's fluent in English and Japanese. He'll listen to what your goals are in terms of what you want but will also be honest on whether or not it will work for you. This isn't a stylist that perfected his trade for the money (look at who he's worked for and trained under)... he really is down to earth, compassionate, and a class-act. It really is a treat to see him and I'd like to call him a good friend!
In conclusion, "Haruo Noro salon," is my go-to-spot for modern, trendy, and classy hairstyles. You will be cared for like a family member. Your specific goal to achieve a certain look will be met.
If you don't respect yourself or don't want to stay well-groomed go to supercuts or a barber, but if you want to look and feel your BEST... go to Haruo Noro Salon.
"Not Bad" – I can understand and appreciate quality reviews of this salon. To a certain extent, I agree with what has been said. The salon itself is nice inside but the staff is very preoccupied. There seems to be one quality stylist there who happens to own the place yet he was inbetween many clients. I didn't like that at all. If you have about 3 hours for a cut/color I'd try it out. Prices are a little steep and don't expect to be "pampered" however, you'll get a good haircut/color. It really does break the bank though and I wish prices remained steady. Almost feels as if they charge a higher fee after you get everything done. What are you supposed to say... attach my hair back I can't afford it?
