Rodolfo is the kind of hair designer that has a creative eye. Add to it his good listening and communication skills, and the result is perfect hair. He will give you a style that fits both your hair-type and your lifestyle. In my case I spend a great deal of time outdoors, so I don't want a hairstyle that must be constantly protected, that is why he talk me into an easy style. I am able to manage my hair myself between visits to the salon.Before I met Rodolfo, my style only looks good after it was professionally done, it was the reason why I was in need of finding a better stylist, and I found him who also likes to play safe with the client's hair. I don't have to spend hours in a high maintenance. I got a versatile look that I can style into a fantastic look. A stylish girlfriend recommended me and it was enough because I love her hair. I don't look for cheap, I want the best and with Rodolfo I got the best for fair price.

best makeover from Rodolfo Valentin

I probably have forgotten the last time I was happy with my hair. Whenever I visited a Salon, I felt worst than when coming in. Rodolfo has given me back the confidence in myself. In fact he did a total change to my image, he changed my hair color, my haircut and my style completely. Rodolfo has rejuvenated me and I got from my husband a whommm!, ( probably it was over a year that he did not compliment me). Really he is worth the double of praises he has obtained for his merits. He should have more recognition, more people should know about his talents and compare to others being most of the time on the front page, Rodolfo is for far a much better professional.

Rodolfo Valentin is compassionate, helpful and particularly interested in helping out patients with cancer. His service is very personal, with an emphasis to give the best for the least... He offers an invaluable service to these special patients and draw on extensive experience and training to provide a very professional, caring service. Personal side to his care, indicating an understanding of the psychological consequences of hair loss. My Doctor was very impressed with my hairpiece for its natural appearance. I am very pleased with my hair prosthesis and the way in which Rodolfo Valentin treated me. Rodolfo Valentin does an excellent job helping patients through a difficult time.

The week after Britney Spears ended up with no hair, I ended up with twice as much. At Rodolfo Valentin salon in New York I have been treated to his famous Hair Infusions.They are an advanced form of hair extensions that do not damage your hair but still make you look like a Desperate Housewife (which of course is my main aim in life). As you walk into the salon there is a big poster which reads: Come in with the hair you have got, leave with the hair you want. I had had a particularly dreadful haircut (at Harvey Nichols can you believe it?) and every time I looked in the mirror my hair made me alternately depressed, at how limp it looked, and furious at how much money it cost. Anyway Rodolfo sorted me out. I wafted out of his salon feeling like a million dollars. Even my husband (who normally hates all this sort of thing) concedes I am now more fun to be with and look better.

I choose to keep my hair in the short side, although the hair extensions I've previously had were decent and looked okay, they were never one hundred percent comfortable to live with 24 hours a day until I found rodolfo Valentin hair extensions. I could instantly tell they were better quality and looked extremely good! So light,flat almost undetectable, Rodolfo staff is kind and fun to talk. Everybody understood exactly what I wanted. I walked out with a fabulous looking hair,not only in length or volume, but the hair color was extraordinary. I am more than safisfied.

an authentic great haircut at Rodolfo Valentin salon

Hair at Rodolfo Valentin chic salon is an experience. The reception is helpful and gracious. The service is individual and everybody there makes sure you are happy whether you want a coffee, a glass of water or a snack. I would suggest my stylist –Mitchell, he listened to what I wanted and he delivered! I also noticed that Rodolfo Valentin makes sure that every service is done up to his standards, and himself watches every client who walks in; he even came over to my hair stylist and discussed with him about my hair. This is the best haircut I’ve had in years!

This is by far the best way to get the hair you've always wanted. the technique is less damaging and superior by far to any other method of extensions in the world!. It is impossible to detect and my hair has never looked better. The best great color every time!. Never a color mistake, just great shiny hair! All stylist bring their own flair and are excellent as a team working together in harmony to create and individual style for their clients. All the staff at Rodolfo Valentin have a desire to make women feel beautiful and try very hard to create the vision that is personal to each client.

What might happen to my hair without Rodolfo Valentin?

IÂ’ve been thinking about how to let Rodolfo Valentin know how much I appreciate meeting him and being able to avail myself of his care, knowledge and expertise. 3 years! I can barely remember myself without the bangs and the ponytail he has given me. Because of Rodolfo, I feel younger and more confident. Michael Angelo, Da Vinci, Goya, and all the best at what they didÂ…and Rodolfo Valentin is in their league as he is best at what he does. Rodolfo Valentin look is very attractive, his soul is tender and I feel lucky to be a recipient of your good taste and know how, no wonder why his clientele calls him the walking encyclopedia of hair.

I've bad thinning hair problems. I cannot have the style I want and I can't get my hair colored ( I am afraid to loss more hair). Last week I found a site: http://haironpieces.com It was a Rodolfo Valentin website dedicate to hairpieces. I knew about Rodolfo's high quality hair products and services but I've always delayed a visit to him for different reasons.This time I pushed my agenda and I got the time to see him. I am extremely happy I did! He custom made me a piece to add hair where I needed most, it is the most beautiful hair piece that I was not able to find anywhere else, it is exactly my hair color and at the touch feels same as my hair do. I am scheduling next to find the time to get his famous hair infusion and his organic hair coloring healthy to my hair. Finally I have the hair style I've always dreamed!

Hi again. Rodolfo, I just wanted to thank you for personally taking the time to call me today. You made me feel so much better! Having hair you love is so important to feeling good - and I've never had a hairdresser like you who offers love and affection and understanding. I was so nervous to write - I was worried you would think I was crazy for wanting to be strawberry blonde again! But you were so compassionate...You are truly a unique individual. Your call and comfort meant a lot to me...I am smiling ear to ear looking forward to coming in next week. I'm sending you some images of my artwork - they are large portraits in oil paint - just so you can see what I do in life :) .... Have a fantastic weekend!!!! With my greatest respect.
