BEN! FANTASTIC STYLIST

I have been a client at Pierre Michel for many years, once my stylist left, I decided to try someone new. The receptionist was extremely kind and booked me with their stylist Ben. He is extremely caring, listening to every word I said. He gave me an exceptional haircut! I would def recommend and will be going back in 6 weeks.

Monika C.--THE #1 Eyelash Extensionist in NYC

I have been having my lashes "done" with extensions for as long as I could remember. Due to a move, I switched to Monika. She is absolutely THE BEST and many friends of mine agree. A few points about Monica: *She does an impeccable job-whether you want lashes which are not lenghty, long-Bambi-reiniscint lashes..as well as Mink Lashes...(J Lo, A number of years back @ Academy Awards anyone?) * She works quickly, but I have never seen lashes stay on for so long before Touch Up Time. *She cares abut YOU as a person--not just as a client, and is truly kind. Monika--ur awesome!!! Snoopy

Allison G. has been doing my color for over ten years! She is knowledgeable and professional. She guides you with what would look best for you and how to care for your hair to get the most out of your new color. She has a passion for her job, and talent like hers is hard to find. She is consistent with her work. I have recommended Allison G to my colleagues and they are pleased with the results as well as the compliments they receive after their service. Hats off to an exceptional colorist!!

Dror at Pierre Michel = 5 stars + New space is BEAUTIFUL!

Dror has been styling my hair for 3 years. I can't recommend him enough. He consistently gives me exactly what I want: a classic yet current style.* He creates a look that reflects you and reveals your radiance. I always leave looking prettier, but am most impressed by how long my hair looks good. Unlike stylists I've had at other salons (I typically shop around), Dror cuts my hair in a way that allows the shape and highlights to continue looking great as my hair grows. Plus, he's upbeat and lovable :) The salon's new space is beautiful. It has all the bells and whistles (e.g., massage chairs at the shampoo station), but isn't overdone. It feels clean and organized, but not clinical. Not gonna lie: the clientele is attractive. *I have long, curly hair that I wear straight and wavy.

PHENOMENAL HAIR COLORIST!!!

I recently moved here from Chicago where I entrusted my hair to only a select few, as I am very particular about my hair and believe you should pay the best to get the best. One of the partners at my firm recommended I meet with Joanna from the Pierre Michel Salon. She is very professional, sweet, and provides 1st class treatment throughout the entire process. She consulted with me and gave me her ideas of what she felt would accentuate my best facial features and though I wasn't expecting much of a change, the end result was AMAZING!! I was extremely excited with the gorgeous job she had done. The staff at Pierre Michel was very professional and I will definitely return on a consistent basis. I HIGHLY recommend Joanna!! I was told she is only available on certain days, but believe me she is worth the wait!!

expensive but great haircut

i think this is an excellent high-end salon. It's beautiful, the stylists are professional, I am generally the youngest client there (i'm in my mid-twenties) but I'm treated respectfully. The coat check lady even has personality. i never get any attitude from diva stylists (which used to happen to me at prive) nor do i have to wait forever (as i did at salon AKS) and I get a wonderful layered cut for my curly hair (i am mixed part black and part asian) from Jerome, who i feel understands me because he has children who are mixed too. also, the coffee is excellent. The highlight woman is also amazing and squeezed me in even though I was an hour late. i've been going for about three years.

After a few days of living with the haircut, I found it is worse than I thought. Jerome cut layers throughout my hair--some 5" shorter than before. I spent 1+1/2 years growing out layers and now I am back where I started. I HATE my haircut.

Hair today, gone tomorrow.

  • No, I would not go back!

I have been to this salon twice and the first cut (by a different stylist) was fine. The women at the front desk are cold and rather brusque. No one mentioned anything about the coffee bar in the back or asked me if I'd like anything to drink. I sat around waiting past my appointment time until someone realized I was there. I told Jerome(the stylist) that I only wanted a trim because I was growing my hair long. Instead of 1"-1 1/2" he cut off between 3"-5". I have a party to go to on New Years and was looking forward to wearing a fantastic dress that looks great with long hair. Now, I look so stupid I don't want to go to the party at all. The haircut is so boring and unflattering to my face (think Rosanne Rosanadana)and there is nothing I can do but put it in a pony tail. $156. for a pony tail??? I cried in the dressing room and no one said a thing as I walked out, tears running down my face. They are mindless people in an awful salon!!

My wife and I have been going to Pierre Michel for so long. But there is one amazing hair stylist. JANINE!!!! She is the best, so make sure you go on a monday or a friday. She cuts my hair exactly how i want it, and she makes my wife look even more amazing then she does already (if that is possible) JANINE IS THE BEST
