Congratulations of being named as the New Yorker of the Week, you deserve it! I get at Rodolfo Valentin Salon in New York the best hair color and great hair extensions, also a wonderful haircut by RV of course! The most important that they are very affordable in this strange economy that does not stop of hurting us, but I must say, Rodolfo Valentin salons prices are making it very easy for me and allows me to keep my hair care budget without hurt my pockets so deeply. I paid here 125 for color and 350 for haircut with Rodolfo Valentin himself. I truly was very tired of spending the double of that in other celebrities’ hair stylists’ salons and also I must say, Rodolfo Valentin hair services are superb and the staff is not snobby at all. I think to be snobbish is a thing of the past and they are super friendlier.

I went to this salon for a hair extension in NYC and I can’t say enough about how professional the salon was. Although it was a very laidback atmosphere I still believed that everybody knew what they were doing, and more importantly they were passionate. The people dealing with me would happily talk about the latest trends and help me catch up on the latest gossip, and that extra effort made me want to come back again. However, I would advise them to lower their prices as they were a little over the top for me. http://www.rodolfovalentin.com/hair-extensions-salons

I truly have the benefit of being one of the two thousand people invited to enjoy the wedding of Andrea Catsimatidis, daughter of John and Margo with Chirstopher Nixon Cox, the grandson of the late President Richard Nixon at the Waldorf Astoria. I also have the great pleasure of share the celebration with Hilary Clinton, Henry Kissinger and the congresswoman Carolyn Maloney. I must say that everybody was looking gorgeous, why? We all use the same hair stylist, Rodolfo Valentin. Thank you Rodolfo, you are truly an artist and the one and only number one in New York, no doubt about it!

Best Extensions in NYC

Finally I got the best extensions in NYC that are not damaging the few hairs I have on my head! I am suffering from thinning hair since I was a teen. I always was embarrassed about having just a few hairs while my friends a lot! I have been since the past 6 years to every hair loss specialist without any results. Last year I was at a hair extension salon that promotes that they are the best, that they are performing thousands of hair extensions, that they do every kind of hair extension available plus bla bla bla. I ended up with my hair in a tangle with glue all over my scalp, they did not care about my unhappiness and because I was in Astoria, Queens I was very afraid because the people in that salon did not seem friendly at all! I paid and I left crying while they were laughing in the back. Thanks to a friend of mine I was able to get an appointment with Rodolfo Valentin at his location in Madison Avenue. God bless my friend, without making any negative comment to me, the very professional staff of this salon, removed the horrible hair extensions, deep cleaned my fragile hair and after one hour they added their great extensions. I must say god bless my friend and god bless this fabulous salon. The most professional hair stylists I have ever meet.

It's Magic!

I walked into the salon for a simple blowout, and on a spur-of-the moment, gut feeling, I asked about Rodolfo's Hair Infusions. He was very generous with his time and service, explaining the process, and applied a few temporary extensions so that I could see the result. Although I had just a few applied, the effect was immediate, and stunning - I literally had tears in my eyes when I saw how beautiful my hair was. As a rather stressed-out woman in her forties with some stress-pattern baldness, I had long written off the possibility of long, beautiful hair. I made the immediate decision to have a full, beautiful mane of extensions applied that were, somehow, PERFECTLY color-matched to my hair. I am so grateful to Rodolfo and everyone at the salon. My husband and son were speechless at the transformation. In just a few hours under Rodolfo's expert skills, I went from frump-girl to beautiful. This is no run-of-the mill extension job that looks fake, or leaves you with a lollipop head. This is a whole different animal - you get what you pay for. It is, truly, magic.

Best Hair Extensions Best Hair Colorists Best of the Best Hair Salon

Rodolfo Valentin salon is the best hair salon in New York or probably there is no other salon to match with. Best hair extensions, best hair colorists, best staff, best service, just the best of the best. What can I say that hasn't been said 300 times! I had so much attention at his salon - I thought I was a movie star for a day! Anyway - went to Rodolfo to replace my existing horrendous hair extensions that I had for only 3 weeks from a hair extension salon in Queens that promotes themselves as the best and unique. I swear those things must have been made from horse hair. After patiently answering all of my questions, I decided to take a chance and buy his hair extension system. Now, after having them installed, I walk down the street now and people stare at my hair. Today, the bank tellers at my local bank were gathered around me admiring my pretty hair! What can I say? If you need hair extensions, don’t go anywhere else.

My hair is better than ever thanks to this amazing hair stylist!. I use his famous hair extensions, hair infusions and these are the only hair extensions that I would ever use in my life. I personally do not like to write reviews because I do not have the time, but I think I must take a few minutes because Rodolfo Valentin deserves I give my point of view about their excellent services second to none!. I am using the infusion additions over the past two years I must say it's the best addition of hairs in the world. I know that other serveral thousands of women think alike!. I've never lost a single hair from my head as it happens to most women who use other types of hair extensions that sometimes the extension fall together with their natural hair of which the hair extensions are attached!. I have seen many cases like that between my friends, but as the time passes my friends are witnesses of the healthy state of my hair and one by one of them are asking me to make a appointment with Rodolfo Valentin. But not just Rodolfo Valentin hair extensions are great ... the hair color technique that they use is the most natural that can be. Also the hair color gets enhanced with the help of hair extensions that are made using unsurpassed top quality human hair!

Two places for celebrities: Nello Restaurant and Rodolfo Valentin NYC top salons are sharing the same address!. I was able to have both at the same time!. We have dinner at Nello restaurant for celebrities but before that, I did my hair with celebrity hair stylist Rodolfo Valentin. THE PERFECT COMBINATION !. I got to Rodolfo Valentin Salon just before theirclosing ( around 6pm) and I got my haircut and hair style by Rodolfo Valentin, truly the best of all hair stylists in NYC, Marisha did my makeup and my husband picked me up at 7:30PM. Perfect timing, our appointment at Nello Restaurant, just below Rodolfo Valentin salon was at 7:30pm. It was perfect, there were many celebrities that Rodolfo did, but I got the feeling that I look like one of those celebrities, or even more....

I was at the Rodolfo Valentin salon in New York City and this top hair salon merges comfortable approach with energetic hair styling and cutting-edge hair coloring and hair cutting industry techniques. It is more than just the best place for a great haircut it is also the one of a kind hair color salon for improved hair coloring services, it's the decisive full-service hair salon where clients can be pamper for hours or touch-ups. The fashionable modern interior decoration and spa-like ambiance of Rodolfo Valentin Salon surpasses every day tension and the sumptuousness hair and spa services come at the hands of unparalleled Hair styling, Hair Colorists and Estheticians. I would recommend this salon spa to everyone searching only for the best and because it proposes to its patrons a endless multiplicity of services such as full beauty makeovers, waxing, permanent makeup, hair and scalp treatments as well as coloring and spa treatments. There is also "Maribel" probably the best manicurist and pedicurist of New York City! Rodolfo Valentin Salon is the supreme place for the best haircut-color-highlights including hair loss replacement. No wonder why this is the salon recipient of so many awards and recognition.

Hair extensions at the best hair extensions salons for safest hair extensions in the world!

Iam suffering from hair loss and it is my problem for over a year now. I've been to every hair loss specialists in New York and was able to stop the hair loss but I didn't regain my hair back.With the fear of being a slave of wearing a wig or having hair extension and at the same time watching my friends' hair damaged by wearing extensions scared me more. I really didn't know what to do or what to use. Until one day, my doctor told me that I don't need hundreds or hair extension choices because most of them will damage my hair anyway and will end up without hair at all. Almost every hair extension available in the market today pulls the hair as a consequence from the weight and the heat that they use with the process. According to him, there is only one kind that I can have and he would recommend, done exclusively at Rodolfo Valentin's salons. Now, I want to let everybody know that Iam the happiest person in the world because I have a head full of my hair. Not only that, my own hair is growing back to its healthy state because the hair infusion extension is helping with its growth. I will be thankful to Rodolfo for the rest of my life, not only because he gave my hair and my self confident back, but also for the love that he put on it.Iam still young and I have the right to enjoy life at its fullest, icluding the best of my appearance. Thank you Rodolfo and God bless you...
