Simply the Best – This is simply the best place to go for Thermal Reconditioning! I have been to several salons in NYC and a top salon in San Francisco for this process, and Shige does it professionally and perfectly each and every time! He knows hair! His team is polished, polite and so gentle! I am confident when I go here that I will be well taken care of and emerge with silky soft smooth hair. Know that you will walk into an environment of calm and walk out with a smile on your face! I applaud this Shige and this salon for outstanding service every time! Thank you so much!!!
Highly recommended! – I would like to recommend Shige Kosuda Salon, which is highly professional but also relaxing. Tina Marie, who cuts hair and also colors, is fantastic. She always gives a great cut and the kind of cut that grows in well and keeps its shape a long time. She listens well and does exactly as you request. Treat yourself! :)
High end service, lots of attention – I love Shige Kosuda! Tina is a miracle-worker with blonde hair... she took me from a dark red dye job last June to a light, sunny blonde. It's lighter than my actual color, but it looks natural and healthy and I consistently receive compliments.
The other staff members are very helpful and attentive - I'm never without a beverage! The massages (shoulder and scalp) are unparalleled in awesomeness. As an added bonus, the salon offers the best fluffy, gossip mags.
I recommend the salon in general (and Tina specifically) to anyone looking for a top-notch salon experience. I would note that this is not cheap... they do great things, but you have to pay for it. A blow dry costs $50, for example. When cash has been tight, Tina has let me blow dry it myself... so they are friendly and will work with you!
Shige Kosuda is a wonderful salon – I have used Tina as my hair colorist for 5 years and she does excellent work. I followed her from a different salon last year. I enjoy coming to Shige Kosuda, the staff is very professional and friendly. They also have a nice selection of products to purchase. Please check it out and ask for Tina!!
Been Going There Over 10 Years! – I've been going to Nome at that salon for over 10 years and i love him. He spends lots of time with me discussing what i want, even though i've been there so long. I seriously love this place...!
Friendly people, amazing haircuts! – I found Shige Kosuda when my favorite stylist moved from another salon. I love it. The atmosphere is friendly and chic without being intimidating. You'll get a massage with your shampooing, and allow me to recommend Satoshi - he's the best.
Tina is the reason I started going to Shige Kosuda, and she's the best stylist I've ever had. She knows how to make my hair look polished and stylish without dooming me to spend hours in front of the mirror every day - wash and wear and great-looking. Tina is also the person who convinced me to try coloring my hair, and I absolutely trust her with it. I'm a natural blonde, and she's done blonde(r), red, brunette. It always looks natural, rich and wonderful, and she never lets me do anything that won't look good.
What are you waiting for? Go visit Shige Kosuda!
Great Salon! – Shige does the best hair cut for Asian hair type in town. Loving every time.
The best place to go for japanese straightening – I have been to a few places in NYC to have my hair straightened (known as "japanese straightening" or TR, "thermal reconditioning") and this is my favorite. There is no need to go anywhere else. My hair is straight, soft and smooth every time. I travel from Boston twice a year just to go here, and it is worth the trip!
My hair always look amazing when I leave – I go to Tina to get my haircut and in the 30+ years I've been getting my haircut and styled, no one has ever done a better job. She listens to what you want and is, I would say, a conservative cutter. No saying you want one inch off and walking away with hair that's six inches shorter. And she does a brilliant job of styling it!
Best Highlights with Tina! – I have been struggling to find a decent hairdresser to do my highlights in NYC for almost 3 years (!!!), and after paying more than $200 at different salons, I still wasn't happy before I found Tina. She understood immediately what I wanted and my hair looked wonderful and natural. Besides making my highlights look so great, she cuts my hair so perfectly, so I don't need to style or do anything with it, after washing. Additionally, the price is always reasonable and the result is always great! I would recommend Tina for everyone who wants the best highlights.
