Amazing haircut

I have had the same hairdresser since 5 years and I was really worried about my hair do when I first moved to NY! After weeks of hesitation, I took an appointment at Takamichi Hair with Gabby. She is great. She really listened to me and made me feel confortable. I really liked my haircut, she did an amazing job and I can't wait to go back before I leave the city!

Not the best place in the city

After reading all of the great reviews for takamichi hair (for men) I strolled over to get a cut. Location is interesting, hidden elevator is cool - but overall just a marketing ploy. Anyway the haircut - very disappointing. My stylist did listen to what I asked but I more or less let them do their thing . Sadly it really wasn't any different then any other mid-high end cut, worst part though was that it grew in sloppy and honestly they left it much too long so I had to get another cut in just 2 weeks. I gave them a second chance to let them "get to learn my hair" - but had an identical experience. For a 120 dollar haircut, it was overall not worth it. Even if you have a lot of money to blow, there are still better places.

still as good as it was when I went there first in july. I tried Tamami this time and she is Really great! she is very attentive and really takes care of you and her scissor skills is and art..... have to say that i love the special treat!! a hot towel under my neck while getting my hair washed. aaaaahhhhh so relaxing... LOVED it, so nice and cozy in the winter cold! I look great and my hair is so shiny after the glaze treatment she recommended. as before, i recommend Takamichi Hair and I will not never change as long as I live in NY.

They say there is nothing worse than a bad haircut, on the flip side what could be better than a great one! Takamichi Hair left me with an amazing bob that has everyone asking "where did you get your haircut?" I highly recommend it.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
