DREADLOCKS HAIR EXTENSIONS – I have going to the Hair Cult for over 20 years. I have had numerous stylists and have never been dissatisfied with my hair. I like my hair very different. My hair was long mostly. They cut the hair great and colored it great. Coloring (my hair is naturally very dark brown) I had it dyed natural, red, blonde, light brown, and multi colored. I also over the course of time had my hair dread locked with hair extensions 4 times. My hair is normally full both very fine. Laurie the owner has always done a great job doing it. If later, I saw something that had to be fixed (it was only a minor fix) she had me come in and fixed at no charge. She is magical doing extensions and dreadlocks. I have recommend her to every one. It is truly hard to find a salon that does a person with straight fine hair to do this. You may say dread locks & hair extensions is a little pricey. (It does take apx 6 hours). It isnt pricey, if your hair is done right. I dont know anyone NYC area who can do this. Go ahead be cheap, you will pay less and be very unhappy. You pay for what you get. Laurie and her staff are first class and treat you like family. Love you Laurie thank you again for a great job.
wow what a place. – besides the salon just being beautiful the staff is truly great. they all made me feel welcomed and made sure that i was comfortable and satisfied. love this place. will definitely go back.
AMAZING – I recently went to Hair Cult for the very first time. Just moved to Hoboken from Miami and I love Aveda and it was highly recommended by a coworker. As soon as I walked in I was greeted by what I can assume was the manager Ricardo. He offered my tea, held a conversation with me even though he seemed to be so busy he made me feel so comfortable and got rid of my nerves. Laurie was my stylist. She listened to what I was looking for and gave me exactly what I wanted and NEEDED! I left there feeling absolutely fabulous. My hair looked natural and flawless. Couldnt ask for more. Great customer service, great hair, just great overall. When i went to check out I made my next THREE appointments and left with a smile from ear to ear.
I RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO EVERYONE!!!
Good Atmosphere, Great Haircut – I basically just went in for a basic haircut. I'm a no frills guy, and the girl that cut my hair, Mariela, did a great job. The staff was cool, very hip, but not obnoxious. I'll definitely be heading back here for my every 3 week cut. Thanks Guys!
I want my hair back – I have, sorry, HAD shoulder length straight hair. I went to Hair Cult and saw Mariella because my previous stylist at a different salon moved overseas. I asked for "up to 2 inches off the back and just a trim at the front, because I want to keep the length". We discussed how this would make my hair quite angled towards the front, which I said I liked.
I was surprised (and worried) by how quickly Mariella cut my hair, and then annoyed when she took about 3 times longer blow drying it. My hair is already straight and doesn't need to be tortured for 30 minutes to sit properly.
When she was finished, I was shocked by how short it looked. I had gone from hair that touches my collar bone (I even checked a 2 week old photo to be sure I wasn't imagining things) to a long-ish bob.
I've had lots of bob haircuts - it used to be my staple - and its an ok cut (not spectacular). The point however, is that its not what I asked for. Comparing my new cut to the photo, I reckon she took 2 inches off the front and 3 off the back. That may not sound huge, but for straight hair at this length, the difference is huge.
So, I gave myself 24 hour hours to calm down before writing this review, but the fact is, I'm still hugely disappointed and annoyed that it will take 2 months to grow my hair back to where I wanted it.
Although my issue was with the cut, and I can't comment on the other stylists, I wont be returning to this salon.
What an experience !!! – After a couple of times walking by Hair cult salon, I needed a change and decided to walk in, and give it a shot. I had the Best experience ever, starting with the front desk person, followed by the hairstylist that he recommended, very professional not only did my hair come out Amazing but I felt so relax with the great complementary scalp massage and a very friendly staff all around. All my friends already know about my great experience and Can't wait to go back.
The Worst Hair Cut I Can Remember – Bill gave me the worst hair cut I can remember. This was my 3rd haircut with Bill, and he was familiar with my hair type (thick wavy/frizzy), and my style (I like long layers), However, this time, he clearly wasn't paying attention, and I ended up with a top layer of VERY SHORT hair, which did not blend at ALL with the rest of my hair which had no layers at ALL The end result was an extremely bulky looking, completely unstylable mess. I've had to resort to pulling it back in a ponytail, and using bobbypins to keep the short pieces from hanging in my face while it grows out.
A Nice Place To Visist – I've been going to Hair Cult for about 14 years (I can remember when I started, it was soon after I got married). For the last 7 years, I've been "commuting" from the suburbs for my cuts; even worth the parking nightmares.
It's a great atmosphere, everyone there always treats me like family (the family you like) and Laurie consistently gives me a better cut than anyone
else has. The massage to start is cool, too, I just wish I didn't have to go next door to Marma to make it last an hour.
I've always found people have a tough time with my hair, so I've had problems finding a person I like to cut it on a regular basis. My only worry now is if I get a new job out of the metro area - I'll have to hope Laurie's ready to open a second shop elsewhere.
I hadn't had my hair done since last November because I lost my job. Coincidentally the receptionist just cold called me to say they hadnt seen me in awhile, after explaining why i hadn't he mentioned about the Recessionista Thursday deal they had going on. Every thursday 12 - 4pm you can get any service for 30% off. I ran!!! I am so loving my hair today! I went from 9 months grownout highlights to a more natural color brown with some highlights, and an amazing cut! It had only been my second time to the salon, and it was as awesome an experience as the first time. Thanks Laurie!!!
Jenny is the best with curly hair! – I started going to Hair Cult when I moved to Hoboken and now I won't go anywhere else for cuts and foils. Jenny's really sweet and always goes beyond my expectations (in a good way!) My cut and color always grow out well. I have curly hair- and the layers always look good! Hard to find a good stylist for curly hair- Jenny's awesome and consistent!!! I've been happy after every appt!
