BEST CUT & COLOR EVER... – I have searched long and hard for the best colorist & finally found him - Arthur at Luba Salon is the best ever! I have gone to famous colorist, traveled hours to find the one who would give me the color I wanted with consistent results. My highlights would always tend to get bleached out to the point where I lost my natural low lights & anytime low lights were put in, they appeared washed out within 2 weeks... until I finally found Arthur! He takes the time to use the right color and to pick the perfect strands to highlight so that I still had my beautiful natural low lights, each and every time. I have been going to him for a few years now which is a record for me... I intentionally waited to write the review, even though I was thrilled in the beginning, the true test for me was to be just as happy, actually happier than when I first went to him. I never write reviews, but I took the time because everyone should know he is NYC's (and to me the world's) best kept secret...
such a great salon! – From the moment I walked up the stairs to this great little salon, the experience was top notch! Arthur took his time to listen to what I was looking for, and made it clear that his goal was to make me happy and feel beautiful! The hours are very flexible, which is great for women with busy schedules...I am so happy with my cut and color, and cannot wait to go back for more superb service. I have never been this happy with my hair - thanks Arthur!
Amazing! – I tried Luba's for the first time this week after spending months searching for a new stylist. I'm so happy I did!
Arthur did an absolutely fantastic job, giving me beautiful, natural-looking color and definitely one of , if not the best ,haircuts I've ever had!!
He was very professional, really understood what I was looking for and gave me some helpful advice on how to care for my hair, which is a rare thing at most salons!
I'm already looking forward to my next appointment!
Best Blow Dry in New York City! – I first found Luba's Salon by accident after I was coming out of the Equinox gym on 63rd street and Lexington Avenue. I needed a quick blow dry, and my usual place was booked. I noticed a sign for Luba's Salon and decided to try it, so I walked up to the salon which is located on the second floor. There I was greeted by a very nice stylist named Arthur. After a wonderful head massage and hair wash, I was treated to one of the best blow outs that I have ever had and have been coming weekly ever since 2005.
Luba's Salon is a family business which is what makes this place so special. However, the real secret to Luba's Salon is Arthur Lak. Arthur is an extremely talented stylist who is also very kind and patient. He truly wants to make his clients happy and makes sure that all his clients leave the salon looking and feeling beautiful. Arthur is very good at cutting and styling and really does one of the best blow outs in New York City.
Luba's salon has some wonderful treatments as well. I especially love the Deep Conditioning Moroccan Oil Treatment which includes an incredible head massage.
Over the years I have been to many of New York's top salons but nobody blows my hair like Arthur! I always leave the salon looking and feeling great.
Amazing cuts and color! – I am so grateful to my friend for recommending Arthur at Luba's Salon for my cut and color! Arthur is extremely talented. I always know I will love my color and that my cut will continue to look good, even as my hair grows.
I moved to the suburbs two years ago, but I still travel into NYC to have Arthur work his magic!
Great salon and stylist! – I moved to New York and was in need of a new hairstylist. After researching several salons on Citysearch, I decided to try Arthur at Luba's Salon. I am so glad I did. My cut and color was beautiful. The color was shiny and natural and my hair fell effortlessly into place. I never knew what a great haircut was until Arthur cut my hair. For the past five years, all of my cuts and highlights by Arthur have been perfection.
Three years ago, I moved back to the Midwest. One of the things I miss most about New York is Arthur's cuts and highlights. I have tried some of the finest salons and stylists where I now live and all pale in comparison to Arthur. I have been so frustrated with the stylists in my home state, that I have been traveling to New York to have my hair cut and highlighted at Luba's Salon.
The only negative thing I can say about Luba's is that after having had my hair cut and highlighted there, I am left feeling nothing but great disappointment when visiting other salons.
Consistently great cuts and color – I have been going to Luba's for over 5 years, specifically to Arthur. His cuts and color are consistently the best I've had in my life. When I first went to him, my wavy/curly hair was limp and unmanageable and he gave it life again. Every time I leave Luba's I feel like a million bucks.
The best hairdressing salon in the world!!! – I am from Gibraltar and lived in NY for 2 years. During my stay here I read a couple of beauty magazines and came across Louis Licari Hairdressing salon and much to my disappointment it wasn't as amazing as magazines described. A friend of mine then recommended Luba's Salon so I arranged an appointment. It was the best thing I did, not only because of their professionalism and the way they did my highlights and cut so perfectly but also for the wonderful way in which they treat their customers and make them feel very welcome and relaxed. I've been back in Gibraltar since 2003 and no-one has ever done my hair as amazingly as they did. They should open Luba's salon around the world!!!
Great color! – Arthur knows blond - dark blond, light blond, anything in between. I have been going to this salon for over 10 years and continue to be thrilled with the color, regardless of whether I want to go darker or lighter.
In fact, I now live in California but STILL get my hair done with Arthur - I have tried others but they simply aren't as good as him!
Arthur and the team will take time and care to make sure you get the service and the look you want. And a great value for your money!
Couldn't love the look more – Prior to this experience, I remember complaining about my hair to my friend Sarah, who also lived a few blocks away from Luba Salon, about how brassy my blond hair had become from a botched color job earlier. She promised to walk with me in the neighborhood until we found someone who would make it better, thinking I had already tried a good number of great salons -- why not walk around? We stopped in two or three places -- all were afraid to do anything with my hair to fix it (probably knowing it would be worse because they didn't really know how to fix it). She and I came across Arthur, asked him what he would do if he were me, and he gave his honest opinion. I ended up walking out with some great halo highlights and a much better attitude about my looks and Sarah ended up walking out with a haircut (even though her long locks were afraid of being cut too much, he was able to give her exactly the look she wanted -- haircut showing more length than before). All in all, we couldn't ask for a more talented stylist who really understands what you are asking for. I have finally found reasonably priced hairstyles with no complications and great results.
