My first experience at Nadia showed me that Jeff Palmieri was a better stylist than ALL the others I have used at the most famous Salons In Los Angeles! I have been back twice since November & each time I was more impressed. I wouldn't go anywhere else ever again.
Nadia Salon Incorporated
Jeffrey Palmieri did my hair last week. It is the best Color, Cut & Style that I have had in years, better than some of the most famous Salons in LA, Palm Beach & NY, and those places were 5 times more expensive! If you want Beautiful, Runway Style hair, I also suggest the Keratin treatment. My hair looks Awesome, It hasn't looked this good since the last time HE did my hair at his former salon..... so definitely go see Jeffrey & his Stylists at NADIA SALON, INC.

I am so looking forward to getting my hair cut--I want a drastic change. When I called to schedule an appointment, the girl I spoke with was very friendly, accomodating, and the hours are so convenient to work around my 9-5 job. It was such a nice change to not have to try to book something a month in advance because of rigid hours, and I am so looking forward to getting Lee to work his magic with the scissors!
The atmosphere is bright, pleasant and friendly. Staff was always smiling, and made me feel comfortable, and I wasnt even the one getting a haircut! The couch was comfortable, and it was a lot different from the beauty shops I am used to. They even had a Keurig, so that also got my vote.
Start with younger daughter. Her hair is a complete jungle, and sometimes I wonder what strange creatures live in that jungle. *insert image of Where the WIld Things Are* The hair that was down past...view more her ribs, always tangled and ratty 10 minutes after brushing is no more. Originally she wanted ""like 2 inches off and some side bangs"". I encouraged her to be a little more extreme and assured her that if she didnt like it, it wasnt a big deal, we had lots of time before school started. She is very....vocal...when brushing her hair. Ouch ouch that hurts stop that dont touch me is the usual chant. Lee was very patient and used a comb and went through her mess little by little, and very gentle. I didnt her a single yelp or whine from her. He paid very close attention to what she said, asking her every step of the way for her opinion. When he chopped the first 4 inches or so off, I thought OMG she is gonna flip, but she actually was getting into it. By the time she was done, my little jungle woman looked beautiful. I was almost in tears. Even the shampoo girl/receptionist was shocked so much was cut, and I kept hoping she wouldnt freak out, and she didnt, and she LOVES her new hair. She wasnt too keen on a ""boy"" touching her hair, but I assured her that it would be ok, and now, she wont go anywhere else. She liked the princess treatment she got, and liked being talked to like an adult. Lee asked her questions, and scary enough, knew who Selena Gomez was, and picked up a recent magazine and asked her what she thought of Taylor Lautner. Either he is keeping up on current trends all the way across the board OR...he did his homework, knowing he had teen customers coming soon. Either way, I appreciated that he took the time to talk to her about things that interested her. After much blowdrying and brushing, my baby girl came out looking like a short woman, and is pleased.
Older daughter is the other end of the spectrum. Where Jaime has thick long hair, She has thin short hair. Cher wanted to do something radical, but not too crazy, something different but not so different that she would hate it. This of course was relayed to Lee, who took the time to look at some pictures with her, and he actually LOOKED at them. Not the usual *glance"" ""yeah I can do that"" but he actually looked at them and listened to what she said. Lots of snipping, blow drying, conversation and fluffing later, she was finished and pleased.
Both girls said they liked the princess treatment they got, and felt like he actually cared about what he was doing. Younger daughter said she liked that he was humming with the radio, and I THINK I heard him sing a line or two. Older daughter said she liked that he was quiet, and when I asked what she meant, she said she liked that he wasnt prying and asking too many personal questions like every other person who has touched her has done
The royal treatment mentioned in a previous review is quite true...the girls were treated like miniature royalty, and it was a great experience for them.view less
There are very few people I let close to my hair due to bad experiences in the past. I was apprehensive at first, but was glad I took that that first step with Sarai.\r
I have dealt with stylists in the past who have done whatever they wanted to do with no concern as to what I wanted, or something that compliments my lifestyle and personality. She listens to what I want, makes suggestions that benefit me and I am ALWAYS happy with my hair. \r
She is the type of stylist that i...view mores concerned with the overall health of my hair. She gives me tips and suggestions on how to maintain my hair when I'm not in her chair. \r
Most recently she highlighted my hair and did a fantastic job. I have gotten nothing but compliments on them. \r
I currently live in Cleveland and drive to Pittsburgh to get my hair done.view less
Sarai was sent to me from heaven!!\r
I got married a year ago and my stylist and make-up artist cancelled on me at the last minute.\r
Of course I was frantic until my girlfriend told me about her friend who was a makeup artist and a hair stylist.\r
I made a phone call to Sarai and with only 2 weeks notice she jumped to my aid.\r
Sarai not only did my hair and make up, she also did my entire wedding party.\r
She was on-time, fast and affordable. I couldn't have imagined how wonder...view moreful everything would turn out. \r
I loved my makeup and my hair. I loved my bridemaid's hair and makeup and so did they. i recommend Sarai's services to anyone looking for a beautiful experience with a personal creative touch. I guarantee you won""t be disappointed.view less
Lee Barton, a new addition to Nadia Salon, has been washing, cutting, coloring, and styling my hair for several years. He makes me feel like a princess when I'm sitting in his chair. Even weeks after I leave the salon, people will litarally stop me and ask who does my hair. He also gives me a style that I'm able to manage at home without needing a million styling products. Trust me, I'm no hair stylist and I'm very busy, so this is very important to me. On top of being an up-to-da...view morete, talented stylist, Lee is very professional, friendly, and accommodating to my busy schedule. As a side-note, he's also easy on the eyes. I highly recommend Lee Barton for anyone who can appreciate royal treatment.view less
