Kyle White?I had to see for myself

I was curious as to what this guy could do to get women to be so passionate about him. These women cant all be pathetic losers with nothing better to do than spend nights writing about some haircolorist .So I went & I dont get it? He was pleasant,quiet&fast.my color was fine,as for cost,I like being told cost before I buy anything,rather than be shocked with a $500 bill & my charge was $300(I guess it depends on what you have done)As for dirty brushes ,I had a blow dry after.It was a $25 charge but I guess not everyone can afford $25.Its just,I thought money wasnt an issue for a woman whose insulted by a price quote or maybe it really was the money cause why was she drying her own hair? Will I go back? The color was fine,I liked how fast he was & I am still intrigued why people have such a fasination with Kyle.He is certainly busy & with this economy and his price point that says more about his work than all the reviews all the psychotic woman can write about him ever will.

So damn expensive but so damn good

I saw Kyle White for color today and my bill came to $550.00.I mean dont get me wrong he did a great job but how am I supposed to explain this to my husband? I have decided that if I can spend $600.00 on a pair of Prada shoes that are on my feet than i can spend $500.00 on my hair.I mean after all I dont take my hair off and put it in the closet when I get home.My hair is on my head all the time so I should love it.So hell yes I am going back to Kyle because I am worth it !

I have been to every top colorist in new York and Kyle got my color perfect in one shot.He was very professional and personable.I knew my highlights were great when my husband who never notices anything said your highlights look really great.I think he may be responsible for saving marriage.My husband cant keep his hands of me !!

Kyle White gave me the best hair color of my entire life and he did it in under an hour.He was not the most talkative colorist I have ever been to but he was definitley the most efficient.If you are looking for alot of conversation this is not your guy .If great color done fast is what you want then look no further .I will never go anywhere else ever again.The search is over.

I went to Oscar Blandi Salon for the first time. Loved the busy atmosphere. Ray Symons cut my hair and wow, the best haircut I have ever had. I will definitely be going back to Ray at Oscar Blandi from now on.

I feel beautiful!

I was recommended to this salon by a friend. I went onto this site and saw that Kyle and Gina received great reviews. My experience was perfect. Kyle colored me in a flash(usually my color takes forever). Gina gave me bangs and a new look. I feel so beautiful. It's amazing how really good cut/color & great service can really improve one's self esteem. I wrote this review to thank them both!

Kyle White Super Star

I just had the most amazing salon experience of my life.Kyle White did my hair color and I believe it is the best hair color I have ever had in my life!! When I arrived I was sat next to Kyra Sedgwick,which was very intimidating but Kyle was very polite and quickly put me at ease.He immediatley knew what color should be done and had my highlights in within minutes.Then walks in Dorothy Hamill.I am a huge figure skating fan and this was quite a thrill !! Dorothy was quite friendly and assured me of Kyles skill.After I was blown dry.I could not believe how beautiful my hair looked.I am a busy girl and loved how fast and efficient Kyle was.I told him how great I think he is and he was very shy and modest.I was already over the moon with my fabulous new hair color and just then,as I was leaving.I turn and knock right into Kim Cattrall !!

I love Kyle White!

Kyle White is the most amazing colorist I have ever had in my life and every time I get my hair done there everyone asks me why my hair looks so damn good and who did it and I tell them Kyle White! He is absolutely fabulous and I would recommend anyone I know looking for great color to go to Oscar Blandi and have him color your hair and the lady who said he did a bad job must be on drugs. Kyle is a perfect 10!

First Oscar Blandi Experience

Kyle (colorist) made me feel at ease from the moment he touched my hair. Gina (stylist) knew exactly what to do with my hair without being told. Kyle's wonderful choice of color and highlights accentuated the remarkable haircut I received from Gina. I highly recommend the two....I can't wait to go back!

i got single-process color there, and it was the worst color i have ever had. they colored the hair on the front part of my head, but on the back of my head, the roots were still dark because they didn't leave the color on long enough! i wouldn't even go back if it was free.
