All around a 5-Star experience. The price is right too!! Gabriel always handles my appointment booking needs and makes sure there is plenty of time dedicated to me and the service being done. Then his colorist works her magic on my hair. They pay attention to the littlest of details.. The Salon is always clean and has a sexy urban atmosphere. Always a fine selection of music and when I want to indulge a little, the wine is delicious too. I LOVE this place! From the second you're greeted at the door, to the tender care of the stylists, this place is Top Shelf. Everyone is conversing and laughing, it truly feels like a family. GS salon is the best hairdresser in the City! Why? Because the service there is great, the people who work there are great; they're fun, lively, positive and always on the look out what you're going for. They always aim for the best and proceed with caution which makes the money so worth while! They actually do acomplish what you are looking for; weather it comes down to a haircut or dying your hair. They have a heart of hospitality and are always helpful! The first time I got my haircut, I loved it, it turned out to be exactly how I wanted it and it grew out smoothly; people always need a good haircut if you are wanting to grow your hair out. If you're wanting to dye your hair or wanting to get a very specific haircut, I would recommend this salon to go and experience the heart of it! The first time I got my hair dyed there, I was surprised because it was exactly what I was going for and they accomplished it to my willing. The second time I went to get my hair dyed the same thing happened, with caution and patience. Both colors turned out great and I wouldn't know any other hairdresser who are just as good with specific colors or haircuts. The first time I got my haircut I love it and it wasn't too short, it got cut exactly how I wanted it. The second time I got it cut, it was done again with caution and patience. And inbetween both experiences they would show you why the length is either uneven or if the haircut you got beforehand wasn't cut right for the type of hairstyle that you want. That helps because they know what they are saying and it becomes even a bigger success! You will not be disappointed. I would recommend this salon to visitors and locals! Great team, lot's of attention and great hair!
This is my favorite salon in town. Gabriel is an amazing stylist, and always patient with my questions. I love that I can book and be seen so quickly, as this is not always the case at upper-end salons. The environment is awesome: Had a hair emergency!! I called Gabriel Salon on a friday at 4:00pm to see if they had any openings. I had never been to salon before but knew it was uptown close to where I work. I spoke to the recipitionist (who was darling) and asked if they had an opening that afternoon. She said she would see what she could do to get me in and asked for a call back number. She called back at 4:30pm saying that they could fit me in if I could be there at 4:45pm. Which was perfect! Dana had come into work just to take care of me, the customer service was amazing before I even arrived at the Salon! Upon my arrival I was greeted and immediatly introduced to Yelena (who is amazing). After several minutes of dissecting the monster that was my hair Dana asked what I wanted. I had already decided to go dark and Dana made up the most luscious, dark, chocolatie formula for my hair. I was given my choice of beverages (coffee for me) and a Vouge to read, it was a lovely experience. Dana not only dyed my hair, she also cut and stylied it. I left looking amazing (no more spotted monsters for me) with my next visit book six weeks out with Dana. I have found that elusive something most girls only dream about, my dream stylist. Gabriel's salon is small enough to be intimate and the decorations bring to mind a high end, european boutique. All the ladies were fun conversationalist and location could not be better if you work uptown. I will be returning again, infact I don't plan to get my hair done anywhere else. Now price wise I think it was more then worth it, I didn't spend anymore at this salon then I have at any other salon in town.
Good scalp massage. fantastic customer service, I felt comfortable right away. Gabriel was lovely to talk to and was very knowledgable about hair, I am a person that plans and researches everything! When I finally decided I was going to get the Brazilian Blowout I read everything about it. I googled hair salons in my area and the first link that came up was Brazilian Blowout By Gabriel. I then proceeded to read reviews for this place and this guy "Gabriel" Every review sounded to good to be true and my first thought was that he probably had his staff or even he wrote about his wonders. I still called and made an appt for the next morning at 8 in the morning! That's right folks 8 in the morning. He understood that I'm a morning person and didn't want to spend my whole day at the hair salon. (breath of fresh air) My hair NOW is silky and looks 100xs healthier, had a great experience. Wasn't as expensive as I thought it would be he has a cool summer promotion going (a haircut is included) He made the whole experience awesome! I would highly recommend him to my family and friends! So all you Brazilian Blowout first timers or repeats contact Gabriel. Very happy with my results.
