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.

Worse cut by Oscar Balndi and Color ever

Disappointed and nothing exceptional. I went to the Salon. Consulted Oscar. He cut my hair. No big deal, NOT IMPRESSED; nothing great. He suggested a colorist. She changed my hair color which according to her would be better for my complexion. I looked horrible. Did NOT GET ANY COMPLIMENTS. ( Always did when I used to color my hair in another salon). The worse thing was that I spent 780.00!!!! on a substandard cut and terrible color!! Got home and cried. I had seen Oscar on Shear Genius. PURE HYPE!! NOTHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT. I FELT SCAMMED!!!!! I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN. HAD BETTER CUTS AND COLOR AT OTHER SALONS! Once I arrived, waited for a while. Atmosphere OK. Salon busy. women came out with styles which were ok. no big deal! what is all the hype about?? hmmm. I wonder...

Would fly from Tampa, FL to New York for a hair cut alone from Oscar Blandi's Salon. Excellent service, professional staff.

I have been getting my haircolor by Kyle for a long time and will go to no one else. Kyle White is the best in his field and I will fly home from my South Carolina home to get my highlights done by Kyle. The woman who gave a bad review must have been having a bad day or missed her medication that day. Kyle, you are the BEST!!

I'm every hairstylist's nightmare client....

I'm every hairstylist's nightmare client because I'm very hard to please (when it comes to my hair). And good reason for it. For I've had unlucky results from some of the best colorists in the city...until I paid a visit to Kyle White at Oscar Blandi. He and the haircutter, Adel, made me believe again. I went there very skeptical and left looking like I always wanted. My blonde color is gorgeous and my cut and blowout were one of the absolute bests I've ever had. Even the cappuccino was exceptionally good.

Kyle White is the most fabulous colorist I have ever seen. I have been going to him for yyears, and now all of my friends go to him too. He is funny, delightful, and really wants you to be happy with the service he is providing.

Hair Color for Men too

I first resisted when my wife suggested that I get my hair colored by her colorist at the Oscar Blandi salon, but Kyle White did such an amazing job that I now see him regularly. In a busy salon full of women, he made me feel totally comfortable and at ease with coloring my hair. The results are so natural that no one would know I've had it colored, which is important to me. His humor and wit made light of the situation for me, and I would never go anywhere else! Thanks Kyle!

What a great experience I had at the Oscar Blandi salon. Kyle is a superb colorist, very talented and let me not forget to mention how cute he is! Oscar is a gentleman with an amazing talent and he did a fabulous job with my hair. I am very happy with the results and he was glad that I was happy. The people that I dealt with at the Oscar Blandi salon were very attentive and friendly. I would definitely go back again, without a doubt!

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!
