I went in to the salon after reading so much press about Garren himself. My hair has never looked better nor have I ever been to a buisness that seems to run flawlessly. I arrived 20 minutes early for my appointment and was greeted with a warm hello by the receptionist and one of the best cappucinos I have ever had. I actually ended up purchasing a gift certificate for my friend.

On the recomendation of several people I visited Garren New York and was not only impressed with the gorgeous surroundings, but absolutely treated like a princess. I walked away with a new salon, and a new look!

garren has created the most beautiful salon. they never keep you waiting. everyone who works there is excellent and friendly. it never feels over-booked the way some salons can feel like a factory. could not love it more.

Best Salon in the World...

Garren Salon is incredible. I regularly travel from out of state to have my hair done here, and I'm not an otherwise self-indulgent person. Christopher is an absolute genius and anyone who disagrees with his color must not have made their preferences known in the first place (or must have questionable taste in the second because Christopher's choices are impeccable). The salon is obviously high-end but the ambiance is warm and inviting. I am never, never disappointed and have been a loyal customer for years.

I am a long time client of the Garren salon and it is because Christopher John is an artist. His color is inspired and beautiful, and he makes me look like I was born with it. (Isnt that the goal?) Nobody else is allowed to touch my hair. The stylists are also incredibly talented, and the salon itself is exquisite.

Garrens new salon is one of the coolest in the city, but what really sets it apart is the expertise of the staff. Christopher John is a genius with color, Ive followed him for years, and Louis Angelo cuts hair brilliantly and effortlessly . They perform magic on my hair from hell. Highly recommended.

Jordan and the Magic Scissors

Jordan Sparkes is NYC's best kept secret when it comes to meticulously glam hair at a reasonable price. While mostly assisting Garren during photo shoots, runway shows, and the occasional jaunt to the Hamptons to do Gwyneth's hair, he is on the floor a few days a week at the salon. Jordan gave me a Linda Evangelista circa 1996 inspired cut (way before Posh and Rhianna made it mainstream), and I won't let anyone else touch my hair. He is a true talent!

  • 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.
