Top hair salon, Best hair extensions, best hair color

I have hair loss, and I was afraid to try anything. I've never considered using hair extensions after seeing all the disasters on my friends. I live in Manhasset, Long Island. Everybody told me about Rodolfo Valentin, as the best for female hair solutions. I stop at his salon in long island but he was not there, he is there only on Saturdays--I only wanted to see him...So I got a complimentary appointment at his New York Salon, and trust me, after spending one hour with him, I didn't doubt about it, I put my weak, fragile hair in his hands-- HE IS REALLY THE BEST!- He worked on me with such a care for my thin hair, and instead to take one hour as it usually takes his unique hair extensions, he used two hours to make sure that my natural hair was not hurt. Now, I have a full head of healthy hair, and I get compliments everywhere. Rodolfo Valentin has the best solutions for female hair loss and such a care for his clientele!

Best hair color, best hair extensions, best haircuts, best hair salon in NYC !!

Iíve a thinning hair problem. Iíve visited every place for hair extensions in New York, including Long Island, and a place in Queens that advertises very much about hair extensions, but I didnít trust them, they only seem to care for the money and not for the clientís hair. But finally I found the panacea, and the name of the magic potion is Rodolfo Valentin. After I spent 30 minutes of consultation with him, I didnít doubt about his great knowledge. I just let him do what he wanted with my hair, and he did the most excellent job I could ever expect, it was really a make over! ---

Found this salon based in the recommendation of my friend and I am lucky I did. They are amazing!- Michael cut my hair after Pia did my hair color and highlights. Maritza did the most spectacular hair extensions Iíve ever had! --As a result I have now a sophisticated look, trendy, total NYC look. I found the staff to be professional and very talented as well They also handled to me written instructions in the do and doníts about hair extensions care. Even the assistants were knowledgeable and offered advice on taking care of my hair. I am very happy with my hair and plan to be back for more. I might even get eyelashes extension with Mariya on my next visit. They are professional and experts in hairónot to mention that they are incredible nice, no attitude and very fairly priced.

If you haven't experienced Rodolfo Valentin hair salon services it's not too late. They are all breathtaking! Excellence is the superlative remark I can use to explain the knowledge they have about hair. Rodolfo Valentin salon offers the most inviting environment and superb hair color, haircut and hairstyles. First Iíve a consultation with Rodolfo to decide about my hair color, I wanted to be a natural blond and after Pia worked on my hair for almost two hours Iíve exactly to I wantedÖthen Rodolfo came back to cut my hair, he really did a great haircut, the kind of haircut that I can take care of myself without blow-dry, while he was cutting my hair I was enjoying the chat we had, he is classy, caring but humorous at the same time, with very creative imagination for entertaining.

RODOLFO VALENTIN NEW LOCATION IS THE TOP HAIR SALON IN NYC!

I was always searching for fine hair solutions. Many places offered me to wear hairpieces that had no natural look. Finally I found Rodolfo Valentin, and he is such a blessing! My friend highly recommended him. After 30 minutes consultation I didnít doubt about put my hair in his glorious hands. Many of friends are his clientís for hair color for which he also enjoys a great reputation, but for hair replacement, it came out way beyond anything I could have expected. In my opinion hair replacement experts are like plastic surgeons, the best hair replacement technique is the one that seems natural----like your own--- my hair extensions are amazing !

Best birthday gift from my husband: Pampering at this top hair salon !

Last month my husband gave a birthday gift - a haircut and hair color at Rodolfo Valentin salon. I had not done much to my hair for a while, just retouching the roots. I really liked the haircut which rejuvenated my look and was easy to keep at home and got me compliments everywhere I go. The best part is - I just had a broad idea what I would like and let the stylist do the rest. The result was astonishing. Eva put some lowlights in my bleached blond hair to get it closer to my natural dark blonde. I went back lately to put in highlights and I am very pleased with the outcome. I have suggest this place to my friends for both very good job they do to meet your expectations and pleasant ambiance that makes a visit really comforting experience.

I'm from NJ & until I moved out of state I was a pampered client at the Cedarhurst Salon. Everything about Rodolfo & his staff is perfection. They make you feel like you are the most important person in the world.

The best hair extensions in the world, and the best hair colorists in NYC !!

It took me years of searching to find the solution to my fine hair problem. The answer to my forever searching was Rodolfo Valentin and his unique technique of hair extension that safely work for fine hair without causing any further damage as the other hair extensions will do.. Rodolfo Valentin not only added length to my hair, but the most important was BODY, I finally have volume in my hair! Now I can have the trendy hair styles I've always dreamed without panicking of losing the few hairs I naturally have. I was refusing to have any kind of hair extensions after witness the horrors of others suffering from hair getting thinner and some just losing it with bald spots showing!. With the hair infusion I feel in safe hands and beautiful !!
