Moscow is the best -- hands down! Moscow's been coloring and cutting (more like sculpting ;-) my hair for at least 15 yrs. Even after moving out to the 'burbs of NJ, I couldn't cut myself off...I've only strayed twice for convenience and each time Moscow had to save my hair.. My husband even travels 60 blocks North to have his haircut as he can't find anyone who can manage his thick locks. Try him - you'll love him!
What a great time! – My hair used to be a complete mess on a daily basis, a friend of mine told me to go to Salon Moscow... and WOW I'm definitely glad that i listened to her. The boss of the place, nicknamed Moscow, and the other stylists took me in and completely changed who I was, i can honestly say that I fell in love with my new hair-do. You can only imagine how i felt when I saw Moscow take a Super-model as a client while Lana was coloring my hair. I later found out that the model was from Fenton Moon, which was amazing.. not to mention how rare the experince was. All this and so conveniently located on 1st avenue!
Best Color, Cut, Blowout in my ENTIRE LIFE – I wanted a change for the fall and Moscow changed my color and I look "terrific"..it's the perfect color..Only time I have ever been completely satisfied with hair color is when Moscow does my hair..I am a customer for life.
Good enough for TV ! – When Salon Moscow first opened, I lived in the neighborhood and was looking for a reasonably-priced Salon specializing in highlights...and I found it!!! I have since moved twice, but ALWAYS return to Moscow! The service is so friendly, everyone is always happy to be at work there, and the results are unbelievable. I usually get a half head of highlights and lowlights, and not only is the result beautiful, it looks natural enough that your roots aren't starkly obvious when it starts to grow.
I work in television, and I have sent my co-worker to Moscow, and now she is a dedicated client as well.
You can't go wrong here! They also do a beautiful, sleek blowout :)
15-plus years and I'm well over 18 but... – The day I found Moscow, he was working at a salon in my then-neighborhood. I was told by staff that he was the best. They were absolutely right and I've followed him ever since. Originally, he took my over-colored and too- dark tresses to the color I was meant to have, at a leisurely pace that was kind to my hair. He is an artist at styling and generous with his time and services. I was thrilled when he opened his own place. Along with his fabulous sister, Lana, he has built a staff who are friendly, talented, good-natured and always ready to help. What a find for anyone near or far, male or female, who is looking for a great salon, great styling and service and wonderful personalities. All this and reasonable too, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan!
11 Years--and I'm only 18! – I first went to see Moscow when I was in second grade. Eleven years later, I still come home to get a haircut from Moscow, even though I'm a student at Yale, which is 75 miles away. He cuts my hair perfectly every time, and he's never without a smile or a story. Moscow is definitely worth a try--once he cuts your hair, you won't want anyone else to!
Great Haircuts on the Upper East Side – Moscow and his employees are all great at their craft. The haircuts are the best because they listen to the clients and talk you through the cuts. I am always happy when I leave.
Loyal customer for 8 years - now that's commitment! – A friend referred me to Moscow 8 years ago and I haven't let anyone else touch my hair since. When I moved to Connecticut for one year, I still came back into the city for him to cut my hair. He is patient and works with you to get the style you want. He always does such a great job, even when my style ideas are vague and still evolving. He did a perfect job highlighting my hair for my wedding too. He is so friendly and always cheerful. His prices are very reasonable. He is a genuine person and a skilled stylist.
The ideal salon – I have known Moscow for over ten years, and would not let anyone else cut my hair. He not only understands the stuff on my head, he also understands the stuff in my head. He is remarkably smart, witty, deft and accommodating. And, of course, he is a virtuoso at his craft. Did I say craft? I should have said art! And his new salon is perfect. Ongoing admiration and thanks.
Salon Moscow is a true find in hair salons – I was recommended to Moscow by a friend of mine, about two years ago, and have never been more pleased with a hairdresser (Moscow) or a salon.
I'm picky about my hair cut (especially my bangs) and he always gets it just right. I also love the color he has found for my hair, a blonde that looks very natural, and complimentary. He has accomodated my sometimes too busy schedule by squeezing me in, or having two of his staff blow my hairdry at the same time (that was fun!)
I am tall and sometimes uncomfortable during hairwashing because of back problems, and the staff always remember this and give me extra towels for support. BTW, Elana gives superb head massages during washing. I end up almost falling asleep by the time I get to blowdry I've become so calm and comfortable.
I have taken my 7 year old son there, who also loved it!
Finally, Moscow was sweet enough to give me a haircare gift when he found out I had come in on my birthday.
Did I mention that you cannot beat the prices? I'm sick of these overpriced salons that don't give you half the attention and quality that you get at Salon Moscow.
I'm definately set here for as long as he stays. Thanks Moscow!
