Best Hair Colorist of New York is Rodolfo Valentin

LOVE my hair color and my hair infusions, Rodolfo Valentin natural hair extensions, they are light like a feather, not heavy like the other hair extensions I used before, reason why I am planning on keeping them in for a long time ... My blond highlights are astounding and I couldnÂ’t be happier. I will say that they deserve five stars for the hair color, which for my experience Rodolfo Valentin is the best hair colorist in NYC, Claudio did my hair cut and Mariya did my hairstyle it came out way further than anything I could have anticipated, Pia washed my hair, but it was more than having a shampoo, it was a Spa experience with a 15 minutes of deep scalp massage included! The salon was immaculate, beautifully furnished, and everyone was enjoyable perhaps the friendliest and nicest Salon staff I ever met,, I feel blessed to have a salon near home with such a quality. ! Highly recommended."

best haircut in New York is Rodolfo Valentin golden hands!

Best haircut in New York is Rodolfo Valentin, he is so creative that his hands looks like two white doves cutting my hair... and very affordable ($ 225) for the amazing job! Because Rodolfo treats every one as the exclusive client she is, there is not any average or identifiable Rodolfo Valentin haircut." Every Rodolfo Valentin cut and style has a unique characteristic with an edge. While I was in his salon admiring his talent, one of his many celebrity clients stated that Rodolfo could create a style detaining the natural beauty of that person. Artistic and innovative, concerned and perceptive, Rodolfo Valentin is in my opinion, one of the most distinguished hairstylists in todayÂ’s beauty trade.

I visited Rodolfo Valentin salon after read all the enthusiastic great reports about him in this site. I definitely agree Rodolfo Valentin is the hair-coloring king, and I want to add that he is by far Rodolfo is the most exceptional hair colorist in the entire country and other salons I have frequented in Europe. His workforce is tremendously polite and considerate and Rodolfo did a fabulous job with my hair, including my color and my hair cut. I must say that I had never had the color quality I got from him. LOVE MY COLOR LOVE MY HAIR CUT and I would NOT dream of going anywhere else. I am very thrilled to try next, his famous hair infusions. Ahhhhh.... also Rodolfo told me that he is opening soon the most fabulous salon also situated in Madison Avenue closed to Barneys. I canÂ’t wait.

Legendary Rodolfo Valentin is the best hairdresser of USA

Undeniable Rodolfo Valentin of New York is the best hairdresser in USA. In my trip to the big apple I was able to experiment his legendary talents and I must to say that I have deeply enjoyed his great haircut, his knowledge about hair color and most than all together the volume and length that he added to my hair with his unique hair extensions technique call “Hair Infusion”. I look 20 years younger and my husband love me again! I will have to commute to New York every 4 weeks, and after all, who cares?

RODOLFO VALENTIN IS THE KING OF COLOR

I visited the Rodolfo Valentin Salon after a second-rate up haircut left me feeling ugly and completely frightened to get anywhere near a pair of scissors. About my hair color, I have visited previously many top NYC salons for color as Frederic Fekkai, John Barret, Stephen Knoll and my color never was special, just OK. By far Rodolfo is the most excellent hair colorist in USA. The staff was extremely courteous and understanding and Rodolfo did a fabulous job with my hair. I had never had the color quality I got from them. LOVE MY COLOR Now I would NOT dream of going anywhere else. Rodolfo Valentin Salon is hands down the best of the best!

Rodolfo Valentin are the best hair extensions I've ever had

My own hairdresser recommended the Hair extensions by Rodolfo Valentin (that he named Hair Infusion) his patented trademark system. I was looking for somebody to make my hair like a Tyra Banks, Beyonce, or Naomi Campbell, because my style is exactly like them and for the first time in my life I must to admit that I am so happyyyyyyy!. They not only look so amazing but natural and are very healthy to put on!….yes! believe or not, VERY HEALTHY!, they do not require the heat that burns my own hair as the other hair extensions systems ( and I have used the best, including great lengths). I would definitely recommend these to everybody who needs them. The quality of the hair is beautiful, long, healthy and Rodolfo Valentin highlighted my own natural color using his magnificent hair infusions in different degrees of colors!. Nobody can be disappointed, I can’t believe how real the hair infusion feels, and the price very fair and competitive. http://www.hairinfusion.com

Most excellent for hair coloring

From 2003 I am coloring my hair, and although there are no similar statistics for products used in hair salons, and if it is true that the vast majority of women are hiding their gray as myself, most of the popular brands does not last long covering it and in a few days the gray color shows because the color wash out! As many of my friends I also even tried to do it myself buying the hair-coloring product from the drugstore. After all that dependency I was ready to give up until I meet the legendary genius Rodolfo Valentin. He explained to me that the major difference is that a professional colorist can custom blend a specific color and control the amount of peroxide used. With this conscious blending, the color will last longer. The only unavoidable problem is how much your hair grows, but the “key” is to retouch only the roots and using only deposit colors. I never expect that I will have the time to make this report, but after so many years he gave me back my “hair happiness”. Thank you Rodolfo, artists like you should live forever!

A HEAVENLY experience words cannot describe. 45 minutes in RodolfoÂ’s golden hands removed 25 years from my looks. His EXCLUSIVELY TRADEMARKED INFUSION HAIR EXTENSIONS SYSTEM IS THE ULTIMATE. Thank you Rodolfo and thank you to each and every talented and wonderful professional member of his staff! I could not be happier.

In my opinion, best salon in the city

I have always wanted to have more than an average hair & beauty salon. At Rodolfo ValentinÂ’s, I got more that what I have wanted. His love, passion, experience and knowledge about the complexity of hair, a hair coloring and hair addition is beyond to compare. Going to Rodolfo Valentin Salon, is such a pleasing experience. The staff is professional, friendly and warm. The Salon itself has an opulent and vibrant atmosphere. Every time I have to have my hair done, its like I am treating myself to an exquisite experience like no other. One of the reasons why I always look forward to going to Rodolfo Valentin, in my point of view, probably the best salon in the city.
