Alice is wonderful!

Alice is a great colorist (and color work is a significant part of her shop's revenues), but when I raised with her the possibility of not coloring my hair but letting it be its natural grey she was totally supportive even though this was against her economic interest. She magically made the growing out process painless, with my hair looking good even during that transition time. Her cuts are excellent. She talks and listens to her clients, about what they want, and is totally collaborative. She is a delightful person -- warm and funny. I love Alice and her salon!

Adore Alice Hair

I have been coming to Alice Hair for 5 months now where the skillful and super friendly staff have not only corrected some bad color I had lingering, but they also have given me the most fabulous hair extensions that even fooled my own mother. My natural hair has been growing faster and healthier and I absolutely adore my hair extensions. Everytime I come in, I am greeted with a welcoming hello and offered a warm cozy tea, and all the staff are professionally presentable and stylish. You will secretly want to look and dress like them... I am filming a second season of a series for abc and my appearance is highly imperative, and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my locks. I know that when I go in for highlights, scalp treatments, human hair extensions, base breaker, or a haircut and blowdry, I will leave looking and feeling amazing.

I visited the salon to fix a botched hair dye and Alice did wonders. She corrected the color beautifully, gave me gorgeous highlights and a great hair cut. She is kind and genuine, and truly does care about making people feel prettier. 3 weeks later and I still love it and am planning on returning! Thanks Alice!

Alice is an artist!

I've been a customer for about five years now and I'm never disappointed. Alice's hair cuts are a work of art and my single process color always looks natural. Her staff are nice and they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Alice is genuine and creative. She'll give you her honest feedback about cut, color, etc. She's truly a delight and kind. She never forgets my birthday and there's always a discount around that time of year. Thank you, Alice. You get it right every time!

I went to Alice Hair Care today on the strength of the previous reviews here and I was delighted with everything, customer service, colour, price, it was ALL fantastic. I'm an Australian on a long vacation here and was very nervous about trying a new hairdresser(I've had the same one at home for more than 10 yrs! I'm VERY fussy, when I'm happy with a hairdresser, I'm loyal!) but came away extremely happy. Perfect ash blonde colour with NO gold, beautiful super smooth blow dry(my hair is a frizz nightmare) and "just right" fringe/bang trim, polite friendly service. If you're looking for a salon to try, DEFINITELY GO HERE! I'll certainly go back if I can make it back to NYC! I totally recommend them!

The perfect Salon

The people that work at this tiny salon always make their customers feel welcome and at home. It has such a friendly vibe & the staff really takes care of you. Collette has done my hair for a few years now - once she convinced me to color I've not regretted the decision for a moment - very natural, relatively few chemicals and the cut is always perfect. Highly recommend this place to anyone. Great value.

WOW. Alice is a genius. I have moved around a lot and gone to many fine salons around the country - Alice is the best. She has a vision for what looks best on a person and then she creates it. Alice is incredibly gifted - I highly recommend her if you want beautiul hair!

I've been going to Alice Hair to have my colored/highlighted. I love the way it turns out every time. The color comes out just how I ask for it to be done. After my first visit I knew I found a great salon that I can trust for quality work.

I went to Alice's for the first time this week on Monday. I called in the morning and was able to get an appointment for that afternoon! I was set up with Amerah, who was absolutely as nice as can be. She listened to me when I described how I wanted my hair and made good suggestions. I walked away with an amazing cut and color, that was everything I wanted and totally loved. And what's even better is she showed me how I could do it myself at home, so I have been able to keep the look up. I would recommend Alice's and Amerah to any of my friends. I look forward to going back
