My hair has never looked or felt better!

I had dry damged and overprocessed hair when I first visited the Patrick Melville Salon but I did not want to give up my ultra blonde! They nursed my hair back to health by avoiding highlights with foil. Instead they used the cotton squares which were much more comfortable and my hair felt better after the whole process. They also added a glaze and a deep treatment to give me extra shine. They recommended the kerastase which I now use regularly and has made a world of difference in my hair's condition. I have since been to 2 different colorists there and they both did an amazing job and were extremely nice. I have never received more compliments on my hair!

The Best Of The Trade

I absolutely love The Patick Melville Salon!!!!!! From the service to the Style. My colorist of choice is Gina. She has been a great experience and always does a great job, especially with the change of seasons, I always get style that I am looking for and not only do I leave looking fabulous, I am treated like VIP everytime. I am always greeted from the moment I arrive. Best of all, and the most important thing is that Gina always delivers, and my color always last a long time. My hair is always shining and full of life when I leave. My only dilemma is that i've moved to North Carolina and she can't come with me. But i'm willing to travel often because in the years that Gina has been doing my hair, I haven't let anyone touch it. She's that good. Thank You Richard for recommending her.

I am very picky about my hair color because I believe that good hair color can do wonders for one's appearance. Daniel Fortunato, my colorist, made my highlights look very natural, and flattering to my face. He is very concerned with individual sensibilities, and has a stylish aesthetic that manifests itself in his work. He is truly talented. I highly recommend Daniel Fortunato and the Patrick Melville Salon.

I Finally Found My New Colorist

I've been all over midtown searching for a colorist. I've spent as much as $500 for highlights and I have not been as satisfied as I was after seeing Jeffrey at the Patrick Melville Salon. The price was reasonable and my highlights were so soft and natural. My hair has never felt so healthy after getting highlights. He gave me a complimentary masque at the end of the service. I will definitely be back. I'm so happy that ny mag listed him. Finally, a publication and a colorist you can trust!!!!

People keep complimenting me on my beautiful hair!

I found the Patrick Melville Salon though NYMAG.com. I just moved to NY and needed a new colorist and cutter. I was referred to Pam by the receptionist. She really listened to me when I told her what I wanted. She gave me low lights to caramelize my overly highlighted hair . And she adjusted my highlights so they blend in to my color. Pam recommended Bruce to cut my hair. I was shocked when he dried my hair first before he cut it. Bruce says he can tailor the shape of the cut better when its dry. He took an hour just on the cut. He made me look wonderful, and I was able to duplicate the blow dry myself when I washed my hair myself. It was so easy. Thanks Pam and Bruce you have a new loyal client.

I've most recently had a spa treatment for a facial and massage and it was great. This was my first experience because i've never felt comfortable, but at the patrick melville salon my experience was so private and I love how the staff catered to my needs. It really was a great experience and look forward to going back soon.

A great gift

I've been to many salons and i've never been a fan of them until my best friend bought a gift certificate for my birthday for a spa treatment at the patrick melville salon. I experienced a great and soothing pedicure, which is perfect after being in heels all week. My treatment also included a facial and accupunture. Now, I have to admit that I've always been intimidated to have accupuncture done, but it was great and its true, you don't feel pain. Its quite the opposite, I fell asleep. I want to thank my friend and I cannot wait until my next treatment. It was a great experience.

Rick, you are my hair color angel!! Thank you for guiding me over the years while my modeling job called for me to become a hair color chameleon. Every hair stylist I work with continues to compliment your color artistry and is amazed at my hair's shine and that it's extension-less!!! So not only am I always receiving compliments on how great my color is, I love most that no matter how many times my color is changed, you've always kept my hair healthy!!!Lots of love, light and happiness!!! ~Petra Nemcova~

Bruce Kushnick is a magician

I live in North Carolina, but travel to NYC for Bruce Kushnick to do my hair! I have a local friend that will trim me in a pinch, and she's great, but with my short hairstyle, it only looks great for a couple of weeks when she does it. However, with Bruce, it looks great AND it grows out well. Maintaining a short haircut with fast growing natural curly, thick hair, with wild gray hairs mixed in used to be impossible.....I felt like I needed a cut every 2 weeks! Bruce is a magician, in six weeks, I want to cut it again, but it still looks fabulous and I dont have to. Well worth it!! We all know, you get what you pay for!
