I just moved to nyc a few months ago, a few collegues told me about this salon. They were going to Linda, so when I needed my highlights done again I went to see her. The store is really cute and clean. Linda made me feel very comfortable about what she was going to do to my hair. Linda is excellent , my color is perfect! I would recommend this place to any one.The staff is really nice too. GO SEE HER ,WHEN YOU NEED COLOR HELP. ENJOY VANILLA BECAUSE I DID .THANKS AGAIN

I am going to "Vanilla" for two years and I love it. I feel safe for my hair. No damage, best haircut, best color, good atmosphere. You must request Teresa to shampoo your hair - it's better than sex:). All stylist is girls - they professional, friendly, funny and pretty. I love to go there!

Cheap but Risky

While the walk-in price can't be beat: $23.95. The person who did my hair totally botched it. They listen, but I'm not sure they're that talented. Granted, I have difficult hair and should have just paid the price elsewhere. Shampoo was fine, nothing extra about it. Wouldn't say that the place is as clean as the nymag review states.
