Absolutely incredible!

Sean and Alan are truly amazing!! I'm originally from California, but, after years in the city and a few other colorists, my naturally sun-kissed locks were long gone. So many colorists in the city seem to have one generic formula for blondes -- which is often far too platinum. Sean has brought my hair beautifully back to its glory days, in a resoundingly adult way. It looks totally natural (oh and I have a wild head of hair to contend with -- he's a brave man), and he tweaks the color for the season: a little lighter for summer and slightly different hue -- just as lovely and warm -- for the colder months. I kid you not: I get stopped on the street and complimented on my hair -- people don't think it could be highlighted! Oh I've neglected Alan: his cuts are so versatile, depending on what you like, super fashion forward, or just classic and modern. His manner is so laid back, but don't let him fool you: he is fantastically precise, and knows just what's going to make you look gorgeous. Ok that's a lot of praise, but it's completely deserved.

I've been to the Tosler Davis Salon several times, and I won't go anywhere else!! I always get my hair colored by Sonia. It's perfect every time. I've gotten a single process, double process, highlights; you name it, I've done it. She knows what she is doing, and is intent on doing it as well as possible. Sonia is definitely my go-to colorist. In general, the staff at Tosler Davis is warm, charismatic, and friendly without sacrificing efficiency or competence. I would definitely recommend it to everyone I know.

Take Time for Yourself!

I chose this salon based on the photos from the salon website. And let me just say, I was not disappointed. From the moment I walked in I felt comfortable and relaxed. The staff is friendly and takes care of you from the moment you walk in and the lofty atmosphere is very relaxing. The stylists have all been very helpful in delivering exactly what I want. They listen and they are knowledgeable. When I want to get away and look fabulous I am comfortable in the hands of the employees at Tosler Davis. Take some time for yourself!

I found Beth Ann through a friend, whose hair I always envy, and came last week to get highlights. She is the BEST. I got great service and great hair in a great atmosphere. I would recommend this salon to anyone looking for a laid back salon with fantastic results!

Great cut

I was recommended to this salon by a friend and came in to see Patty for a haircut. She was very attentive during the consultation (I am very picky about my cut) and gave me exactly what I wanted. I will definitely be back next time I am in need of a trim.

Hair Coloring Disaster - Brunette's Should Stay Away

By nycreview on 7/21/2009

  • No, I would not go back!

The first time I visited I asked for single process to cover the gray and highlights to brighten up my look - I paid $250 and left with only a few strands on the top of my head highlighted (it looked unfinished when I put my long hair up as I told Sean I do regularly) - chalked it up to being my first time. When I returned for a single process touch up, I left with a 1 inch band of dark brown color all over my head that didn't match my honey brown color - a dark disaster. When I commented to the assistant that it looked funny, she told me it was the poor lights in the salon; after leaving and having several people asking what happened to my hair, I discovered that it was not the salon lights at all. Sean (an otherwise sweet guy), never checked the color after applying it and instead handed me off to the assistant. Needless to say, I won't be going back and now have to pay to have my hair color corrected. Brunettes beware!

Alan devotee

I have been going to Alan for about three years and while he is quick as a flash, the cut he gives me is always flattering to my face, my hair type and respectful of my low-key hair maintenance routine. He's also adorably fun to chat up. Highly recommended.

A-MAZING

I've been to all of them, Sally B&B even those random places Uptown and Brooklyn. As far as decor, value, service and quality, Tosler Davis is my favorite by far. I must say Tosler Davis was such a chill welcoming environment. As soon as I entered I knew this was going to be a good day. Sometimes you just never know what you are going to get. Sean is a genius, he totally hooked me up. Gave me great advice, I was scared at first but listened and the result was great. Couldn't be more excited about my hair. Thanks Tosler-Davis

laid-back, low-key, love 'em

i have to say, i'm surprised by some of these reviews, but i guess it's usually the crazies that log on to write something bad, so i thought i would stand up for these guys. alan and sean do a great job, they always have. i always look cool when i leave here, and i don't feel like someone else's "look" (ie hershberger, etc) has been imposed on me. you have to be realistic--if you bring in a pic of some celebrity, and your hair is totally of a different texture/type, you're NEVER going to look like that. it's true that they have gotten busy, but the work is still great, and the people who work for them do an amazing job, too (if sean is booked, try beth ann; likewise for a cut try jermina if you can't get alan). it is a lowkey laid back experience--if you want high drama and someone fawing "dahling" all over you, head uptown. if you want to look hip but not like you're trying too hard to be someone else, head here. plus, it's great value for the money.

Tosler Davis is my favourite. I've been to every high end salon, Fekkai, Sally Hershberger, Stephen Knoll, you name it. Never have I been so happy with my hair! Sean and Alan are great, a total tag team extraordinaire. The salon is chill, no pressure and very professional. Someone finally got it right
