I HAD long hair!! – I went to Mizu a couple of days ago, excited about getting my hair cut by an apprentice who had just finished advanced classes. I left an hour later, fighting back tears.
I met the apprentice, Judy, and explained that I
Love Nico & Nicole – Just went to Mizu for the first time ... and I love it! I've been seeing Nicole for years and was super upset to hear she was leaving her previous salon. I live in the West Village so the thought of having to go above 14th Street for a haircut was not appealing, but I'm glad I did.
The salon is intimate, but not too small, and everyone there is lovely... I couldn't have felt more welcome.
An added bonus was my new colorist, Nico! I love love love the color he chose for me. I left all of the decisions to see where he would go, and I couldn't love the color more... I feel like I have been going to him for years!
Ask for Nicole, new kid on the block – Ask for Nicole. Best haircut ever. She gets it right every time, has a great sense of humor which is an added bonus. Followed her from her last salon. I like it so much better. Smaller operation, less stressful.
My sister introduced me to her a few years ago and I've been a fan ever since. BTW my sister also goes to her so she's good with all kinds of hair.
If you're like me, a guy that appreciates a great hair cut with good service and no drama, come see NIcole.
Great People, great service. Cool sophisticated yet simple with a laid back environment. A no fuss salon, just what a guy needs.
Nicole is amazing! – My fabulous stylist Nicole, recently joined Mizu. I love her, she took me from a chin length disaster- when I first went to her in serious need of help- to awesome hair halfway down my back. Every single hair cut she's given me has been amazing, easy to style and packed with compliments. Once even from the Starbucks barista.
I wasn't that happy to hear she had left her old cool downtown salon and gone to Mizu in Park Av. I expected to be greeted by a stuffy staff as the client for the new girl.
I could not have been more wrong.
Since the moment I called to make an appointment with her they were super nice and accommodating. When I got there I found they were all even nicer in person. Mizu is a cool downtown vibe salon in Park Av.
Also they have an amazing selection of product, Bumble, Oribe, Kerastase and so many more. I love having that selection.
I am very particular with my hair, have tons and tons of it and have had my good share of bad cuts at really good salons but Nicole has not given me a haircut I don't LOVE in the time I've been going to her. I recommend her to anyone that is looking to get an great cut by an amazing stylist. Could not give her enough praises.
Love Nicole and loved Mizu. Amazing place, cool and talented people.
Professional hip luxury – Sasha is the best hair stylist ever! i feel like a model when she finishes shaping my hair! Superb expertise, I feel totally relaxed in her hands because I know she will do an excellent job. That is worth everything.
Thanks for being so good.
Great Colorist – I have finally found a fabulous colorist. Moran really listens to what I want and does my color in such a way that it looks very natural...and shiny too! I always feel so great after Moran has colored my hair. And don't be fooled by the Park Avenue address. Moran is very cool and the rest of the staff at Mizu are very nice.
The Hair Whisperer – If you've been searching for a new hairstylist, go here. If you are happy with your current hairstylist, go here. And once in, if you appreciate having someone who will listen to what it is you're requesting and follow through with it, ask for Sheridan.
She'll not only hear you out, but she seems to possess the sort of gift and talent reserved for celebrity stylists. Whoops... that's right--she's been one. I'll leave the name-dropping up to her discretion, but--if nothing else--that should give you a sense of the trust and security that those who make a living "being seen" invest in and have with her.
I've known Sheridan for quite some time and have had the pleasure of having her personally construct my hair. (I used that verb by design as my texture is thick and wavy.) In the past my arrival at any OTHER salon has been met with either fear or disdain from those respective stylists; conversely, from the first time I ever sat in a chair in front of her on through the most recent visit, Sheridan has made me feel completely comfortable. If that weren't enough, her sense of humor will make you forget that you've been sitting in one place while she's been doing her handiwork. (You might even be sad it's over when she's done.)
I've specified Sheridan as the one "Pro" because she is the one with which I have first-hand experience. However, if the good people at Mizu are bright enough to spot talent like her, I have no doubt that the rest of the staff is just as extraordinary.
And yes, I live in Los Angeles, so I don't get to reap the rewards that you are now in on.
Great treatment, feel like a star! – I was turned onto Mizu from a friend who knows the area (I live nearby). I must admit, I thought I was going to have to deal with people who were clearly out of my "coolness" league. Boy was I wrong. From the reception desk, to the person who washed my hair, to my awesome stylist, Sheridan... everyone treated me like a celebrity. Sheridan was genuinely concerned with how my hair fit my face, style, etc. I left there feeling more confident than ever! No more cheesy corporate cuts. Would highly recommend Mizu and Sheridan to anyone that has been lost with their hairstyle, or who needs a change.
Sweet! – When a friend of mine recommended I go to Mizu on Park and 59th I must have visibly cringed. As a brooklynite unless there's a museum involved I rarely get above 14th but she did have really great hair... and now so do I !!
Plus it wasn't anything like I expected. Everyone was really nice and the place was classy (and uber clean) without being pretentious or trendy hip.
I will definitely be back and make a day of it.
Thanks for the help! – I have shaved my head for over 10 years now and have finally decided to grow my hair out again. The way I wore my hair 10 years ago just does not fit my current style or life for that matter. Needless to say, I was kind of lost. Fortunately, I found Sheridan Pennington and Mizu Salon. My Chia pet hair-do now has some direction and I am very much looking forward to its final destination. Sheridan was awesome! By far the best stylist that I have ever worked with. Thank you very much for everything!
