Best color

Kimberly Williams is, hands down, the best colorist that I've been to in all of Manhattan. She has an amazing eye for making one's hair look natural. While she is great at listening to client's requests, she also has amazing insight and ideas of her own. I started going to Kim this past summer, in desperate need of getting rid of my brassy blonde "fry-lights". She successfully warmed up the color by adding some low lights, and used a more golden shade of blonde, leaving me with gorgeous Jennifer Aniston looking hair. If you're looking for natural and timeless color, see Kim!

i have been a client of carolyn's for @ 13 years. during that time, i have had long hair, short hair, medium hair, straight hair, curly hair, waivy hair, blond hair, red hair, brown hair and everything imbetween. suffice it to say, carolyn is a genius! considering the compliments i've received over the years and the fact she keeps me looking much younger than my age, it's a bargain! i've already told carolyn, she can never retire! and, she's a sweetheart! from, carolyn woycik ps. and she has a great name.

Ive been going to Jaleh at AKS for years and i won't entrust another sole to tend my golden locks. People constantly praise my natural locks and i owe it all to Jaleh! She is fastidious, professional and a pleasure. I have recommended at leat 5 people to Jaleh over the years - all regular customers. Jaleh doesn't disappoint!

Carmen Rossi

Carmen Rossi is the best colorist in Manhattan and, based on all the compliments about my hair color that I receive where ever I go, I tend to think that Carmen is probably the best in the world. Over the years I have recommended Carmen to many of my friends, including my husband, and they (my friends and my husband) are now all very, very happy customers --and their hair color looks perfect, all thanks to the very talented Carmen Rossi. We all think that Carmen is an artist and we are really grateful to know her -- she is so refined and lovely too.

If you care about your color, this is the place to go!! Carolyn DePalma is a master with reds! My color always looks natural. I've been going to Carolyn for years and she is the best!! AKS offers great service, a convenient location and lots of options. Their prices are good, too. If you want to be comfortable and confident with your colorist, go see Carolyn, now!

I love Salon AKS! Everyone is so friendly and the experience is so nice and relaxing. I have been going to Salon AKS for years and Isabela is the best colorist. I get so many compliments on the highlights Isabela does for me. I would recommend her to anyone! Also, they really do a nice job on blowouts, pedicures and hair cuts. Definitely go to Salon AKS if you want to have a pampered day at the salon with an excellent result too.

Jaleh Review

How much do I love Jaleh and her artistry? Let me recount the ways --she is so elegant and artful, her work is always consistently outstanding - and she makes you feel wonderful! I have been going to Jaleh for many years and am always impressed by her thoughtful, methodical attention to ME and her focus on doing the very best job. And the fact that she is so interesting and entertaining and such a joy to talk to is just icing on the cake. I would recommend Jaleh to anyone who cares about their hair and their looks. I respect Jaleh and thank her from the bottom of my heart. Leeann

I defy you to find a better colorist than Carolyn, her gift of knowing what looks best at what times of the year continually bring rave reviews from my colleague executives. Looking our best at all times is one of the many keys to our success. I promise you will fall in love with both the service and Carolyn as I have!

I would like to ackowledge the excellent work of Caroline, the colorist who does my RED hair! She has been extraordinary with patience, attention, and skill. Given I have been to several colorists in the past, I strongly recommend Caroline as the "one" to trust....
