3RD AVE SALON IS TERRIBLE! – I WENT THERE WITH THEM KNOWING I WAS A NEW POTENIAL CLIENT WHO JUST MOVED TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THEY GAVE ME A YOUNG ASIAN KID.............THE LADY WHO WASHED MY HAIR BARELY TOUCHED MY SCALP, AND THEN THE ASIAN STYLIST WAS CLEARLY A NEW ONE WHO SHOULDNT BE ALLOWED TO TOUCH HEADS YET... HE CUT MY BANGS TOO SHORT, BLEW DRY MY HAIR LIKE MY 10 YR OLD COUSIN COULD AND I PAID LIKE FIFTY DOLLARS! FOR A DAMN TRIM ON MY THIN ASS HAIR........ LITERALLY WORST SALON EXPERIENCE EVER... RUSHED AND HAD ME OUT OF THERE IN 20 MINUTES.. I EVEN TIPPED AND ACTED ACCORDINGLY BUT MADE IT CLEAR BY MY FACIAL EXPRESSION THAT I WASNT HAPPY AND WASNT ASKED IF I WAS BY ANY MANAGERS. THEY JUST TOOK MY MONEY AND ON TO THE NEXT! HORRIBLE DONT GO THERE THEY HAVE STYLISTS WITH STUDENT LEVEL SKILLS AND THEYRE NASTY TO TOP IT OFF! BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD WOULD NEVER GO THERE AGAIN... IFU WANT A SHITTY CUT A HORRIBLE BLOWDRY AND NO ONE TO GIVE A FK ABOUT U, ENJOY!
THEY WILL RUING YOUR HAIR & KEEP YOUR $ – PLEASE READ>>>TAKE PICTURES OF ANYTHING DONE TO YOUR HAIR & WRITE DOWN THE REAL NAME OF YOUR STYLIST (listed on license)
I went to Casanova for ½ head of BLONDE highlights. I even showed him a picture of what I wanted…pretty straightforward. He stripped my hair of color & left me with ORANGE HIGHLIGHTS [ PICTURES Coming]
I immediately told him it was the wrong color…HE GRABBED MY PICTURE & WENT TO THE OTHER STYLISTS SAYING “DOESN’T HER HAIR LOOK LIKE THIS?”
I KNOW WHAT BLONDE LOOKS LIKE…I KNOW WHAT ORANGE LOOKS LIKE
I asked him to fix it and he REFUSED TO FIX IT….HE HAD ANOTHER CLIENT WAITING!!!!!
I WAS CHARGED $90!!!
Another day, I returned to the salon & worked with another stylist. She was nice & genuinely tried to help. She dyed my hair back to a dark brown to hide the orange. Unfortunately, the process did not work and after a week, the orange highlights are now visible & everyone wants to know why I darkened my hair.
IMPORTANT POINT--- AT 2nd VISIT, I DID NOT RECEIVE A NEW HALF HEAD OF HIGHLIGHTS BUT THE CHARGE IS STILL ON MY CREDIT CARD
I tried to resolve the problem & spoke with Phoenix the manager. I wanted a refund for the HALF HEAD OF HIGHLIGHTS THAT I DID NOT RECEIVED ….HE REFUSED!!!!
It gets WORSE…Phoenix told me Casanova felt bad about what happened & that’s why he ONLY CHARGED ME $90….
IF CASANOVA FELT BAD, WHY DIDN’T HE CORRECT WHEN I ASKED HIM TO?
BAD BUSINESS PRACTICES…CLIENTS ARE NOT A PRIORITY!!!
Great Salon and the best hair stylist is Gucci – I've been going to Gucci now for over a year. I actually followed her from her last salon. She is excellent. I have very long hair and she knows I don't like to get it cut much so when she does cut it, she cuts exactly what I want but if she feels that it is not healthy and more needs to be cut she will recommend it but again will do exactly what I want. Always get compliments when I leave the salon. She's professional and personable.
As far as the salon and rest of the staff, love them too. Very friendly and very welcoming. From the receptionist Sangria to the girls that wash your hair.....Ruby and Ten. They are just the best.
they are crazy – whatever good reviews this salon has i guarantee that it's the stylists writing them. this place is a joke
Fantastic Experience, Recommeded!!!!!!!!!!!! – Possibly the best Salon experience I have ever had. I decided to cut my extremly long hair to above shoulder length. Gucci gave me the the exact style I wanted and was incredibly considerate. Cutting long hair can be an emotional experience and she was there with me every step of the way making sure I was alright. They were professional, but more than that, they gave good old fashioned customer service with a healthy helping of friendliness. Not to mention...I love my hair!!! From the receptionist Sangria, to Brazil who did the washing and of course Gucci the sylist, it was simply a good time! To all of you ladies...Thank you!!!
Best hairstylists at this location! – The whole staff are true professionals but yet make you feel like family. They give you the best service and fantastic looking hair every time you set foot in the salon and when you leave the salon people take notice. Who wouldn't want that? Everyone is engaging and personable from the manager superstar Sting to my favorite the fabulous one and only Glase who can make your hair gorgeous in minutes from a faux mohawk to super straight hair. I always get compliments regarding my hairstyles that were styled by Glase at events and parties. I would highly recommend this salon.
A Great Place, Wont Cost a Fortune – Excellent, friendly place. They make you feel like you made a really good choice by selecting them. Feels like a $100 haircut, and a men's haircut is only $30 including shampoo.
They even gave me free products!
Highly, highly recommended.
DRAMATICS LOCATED AT 1488 3RD AVENUE HAS THE BEST KEPT SECRET--HIS NAME IS STING! – I normally do not have the time to write reviews, but because I highly recommend Dramatics located at 1488 3rd Avenue I am taking the time to write this review. Sting is the manager of this awesome salon. He has been my stylist for about 4 years now. I moved to NYC about 5 years ago and during the first year that I was here, finding a hairstylist who I could trust to cut my hair was such a nightmare. My first hairstylist in NYC did not have any personality and was not very dependable, Then the second hairstylist that I had was talented and skilled but unfortunately he died from a heart attack in the subway. I was devastated! I was then recommended to try Dramatics and that is when I found STING who became my angel, my hero & eventually my friend. STING is gorgeous & has a great physique--what a body! More importantly he understands what type of career I have & how I should look in front of my clients, what hairstyles look good on me, & what hair color would look great on me. I look forward to all of my hair appointments with Sting. He can tell you that I am probably his most punctual client and I always show up for my appointments and if I am not able to make the appointment I will make sure to cancel in advance because I do respect his time and want to make sure that he has enough time to book another appointment. I have asked advice from him, shared many of my life experiences with him, joked and laughed with him, exchanged stories about my travels with him, danced with him, enjoyed his scalp massages & shoulder massages, and he will even play bongos for his clients, and on my birthday he had one of his staff, buy me a bottle of wine to celebrate my special day! I have never had a hairstylist who has taken such good care of me! It is an adventure everytime I get my haircut with Sting. He makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world everytime I go home from his salon. THANKS FOR MAKING ME FEEL AND LOOK SO GOOD STING. I WISH YOU SUCCESS ALWAYS! -JOYCE-
fun atmosphere, friendly staff, great stylist – I am originally from Italy and have tried many different hair salons in NYC but I was never really happy with their work. This is until I found Sting at the Dramatics hair salon. He loves what he does and it shows, he knows what style really means. Sting is not only a very good stylist but also very professional, a good listener and he gives good advice as to what looks best on me. I like to change my hair color every now an then and no matter what I ask him to do it always turns out perfect! With Sting as your stylist satisfaction is guaranteed! Furthermore the staff at the Dramatics Salon is very friendly (especially Ruby) and they are a lot of fun as well. They truly work together as a team. In short, if you are looking for a hair salon with a great atmosphere and a great stylist who knows his job, go to Dramatics on 3rd Ave. Sting is the best!!!
Best haircut secret in NYC – I have been to most of the expensive salons in NYC throughout the 11 years I have lived in here. I got tired of spending so much money & coming out with a so so haircut. That's when I discovered Sting at Dramatics. He is extremely talented, unique, professional, personable & makes you leave feeling like a million bucks. I get more compliments on my hair than ever. He really listens but also uses his trained eye to compliment your face the best.. His years of practice are always evident. He is a hidden treasure on the Upper East Side. I promise you won't be disappointed!!
