“What an excellent Salon, not because of the friendly, relaxed and professional atmosphere and superb artistry, but everyone there listen to what I want and add there expertise's with honesty and knowledge.”
“It's also a friendly place, always welcoming -- and very reasonably priced considering the quality and service that's provided.”
Too expensive for just a simple cut. Trusting Citisearch reviews I went for a hair cut which costed me $95 and all I got was one inch cut of the same exact style i had before. No suggestions were given nor comments whatsoever of doing something different. All I got was: " how much would you like me to cut?" ...weird. I am going back to my hairdresser. For $20 bucks I get the same cut.
perfect color. I'm always very very happy w/ Tanya's work on my highlights - she's friendly and chatty, but also utterly professional and highly skilled - I completely trust her w/ my hair. I've never had to wait - they are always on time, even when I make a last-minute appt.
Simply The Best. I have been going to Rumor for 2 years now and would never go anywhere else. Tanya always does a great job with my full head of highlights and Shifa is the best stylist I have ever had. Thanks Rumor!
A Bargain!. Rosemarie's great w/ color. I had my hair color in other salons and I could add that she tops the rest. As for haircut....stylist cutted too short, but it looked nice.
Always Superb. RoseMarie is the best colorist in the city! She always listens to what you want, then adds her expertise, and makes my highlights look so natural. For the time and consideration that she takes for every client, the price is always reasonable. I always walk out happy and looking great, this is why I have been going to Rumor for approx. 3 years, and i will continue to go for many more.
helmet head. The stylist convinced me to cut off 3 inches...she said she really wanted to give me that look. I trusted her judgement since she does this for a living. She gave me a multi-layered TOO TRENDY haircut. It was BLUNT against my face and it was a harsh look. It practically detracted you from the face. Yes the cuts are "precise" and they "fall into the same place" to this day but WHY did I spend $95 on some crazy helmet haircut. After it finally started to grow out, my friends told me it looked like a wig because of how solid and cubic it looked on my head. I work near Rumor and my coworkers went when they first heard the positive reviews but they experienced the same results--sharp cubic hairstyling. If that's your style--urban, edgy, rebellious and a little grungy--go for it.
My wife was extreamly happy with the color that I bought her as a gift, but they were extreamly cagey about fixing a price, and then when it was complete told me it cost more than the top end of their published range.
Why you'd sting a first time customer I'll never know, it's certainly not the way to attract repeat business.
Yummy highlights!. Got my hair highlighted by Steven. He did such a fantastic job........... everyone can't stop noticing something "positively new" about me. It looks so natural and vibrant all at once. It's such an amazing job. I wanted something subtle but vibrant, which is a complete oxy-moron, but Steven did it! I brought in a picture from a magazine and the color came out exactly as I wanted it, and it even suits my complexion and style! woohoo!
Never Again!!!. I should have skipped my appointment and gone to a John Louis David Salon instead. For $100 I should have received a better haircut and service. The haircut was slightly below average and the blowout was way below average. Citysearch should remove this salon from their "highly recommended" list. I personally give it a rating of 3.
Excellent Salon. Rumor Salon is truly one of the best deals in Manhattan. While nice hair doesn't come cheap, the prices here are far more reasonable than anywhere else. The staff is extremely friendly and considerate and the customer service is excellent overall. All of the stylists and colorists are well trained artists, but they do not try to impose looks on their clients. They only make suggestions, and then allow the client to have the final say. I would recommend allowing them to do what they suggest however, I've never had anyone there be wrong. Shifa and Stephen are both excellent, and everyone else I'm sure is as well.
