Great Consistent Hair Cuts By Jose
By Kyleob on 6/30/2005
I have been going to Astor Place for about 4 years, now, and to Jose for about 2 years. I used to just go to Astor without requesting any specific stylist, until one time they led me to Jose. He listened to what I wanted, and performed exactly what I had in mind. Jose gives a great hair cut, and I will never go to anyone else.

Jose is the best hairstylist in the place. I travel from Wall Street to go to him. I would travel farther if I had to. He is great! -Ken
Astor and Jose
By brooklyn1001 on 9/5/2005
I must agree with all the praise for Jose. He is the best. A great guy and great with hair. He's been cutting mine for more than 15 years, adapting his work as my needs have changed over time. In fact, I lived in Washington for several years, but I never once had my hair cut there! I would always get it done back at Astor in Jose's chair, dropping by during visits back to New York. He provides the kind of skill and service that inspires that kind of loyalty.
Jose is NYC's best kept secret

Jose has been cutting my hair for over 4 years now. He always pays great attention to detail and never rushes through a haircut - even when he has people waiting. He cuts your hair EXACTLY as you ask and offers suggestions rather than just cutting it how he wants. He is also an expert colorist and his prices are incredible compared to top salons. Many a beautiful woman has gotten out of his chair ahead of me in line. Jose is also friendly to talk to. Great energy. Tops all the way.
Another one for Jose

I recently moved from FL and was looking for a place to get a good haircut. Read the reviews and decided to give Jose a shot. I can say that everyone was right on the dot. He's friendly, courteous, gave me exactly what I asked for and was in and out in about 20 minutes (did make an appointment though). Definitely recommended!
THE hair place in Manhattan, forget all those pricey salons

I've been going to Jose for a few years now and he is definitely the best. He listens, is an expert in his field, and always makes the time pass with friendly conversation. Highly recommended!!!
Jose is the best in the business

i've been going to jose for about 10 years now. i've had switched barbers a few times and when i finally tried jose, he was able to give me any cut i want and do it perfectly (i've had a few different hairstyles while going to him for cuts). so if you ever get confused with all the barbers in there and have a difficult time finding the write one...ask for Jose Jose!
Sal the barber
By 00721 on 1/30/2010
Awesome! Absolutely the best barber there! Brought my 2 year old son and husband for haircuts, my 2 year old got a mohawk and when he started to get fidgity, Sal gave him his water gun and he was making him laugh hysterical the whole time. He definately has a knack for children, my son keeps asking me when are we going to see Sal. He took his time to listen and explain back to us how exactly we wanted our haircuts. He truly made us feel very at ease and filled with confidence. He has been cutting hair for over 20 years and my husband,son, and I were all very pleased at his customer service and attention to detail. Definately the most pleasurable experience around town and the price was very reasonable, enough to go every week back to Sal :)

I was blown away by the exceptional service i received from Ireena. The price i would normally expect to pay for such quality would at least be $50. I have been going to her for 3 years and recommending her to all my friends. If you try her once you'll get hooked as well.
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
