Editorial review from Citysearch

I visited Mark Garrison over a month ago, my cut and color are still fabulous! Edita was warm and attentive and listened carefully. She expertly restored my hair to its natural color minus the gray! Hiroshi gave me a cut that is easy to style which I think it is evidence of a great cut. The entire staff was courteous and the the salon in clean and well managed. I will defintely be returning.

Editorial review from Citysearch

I have recently visited Mark Garrison in New York City for highlights. Was amazed at the job done but more amazed at my new haircut. Never a person to go to a professional to get a cut, I was always struggling to find the right one. I finally did after so many years. His name is Alex. A true master. Alex realized my vision into reality! He was very professional and dedicated in what I call a true talent and hard work! There is one less unhappy woman in this world! Thank you, Alex for a beautiful haircut and I will see you next time!?

Go to Edita for color

I am an international student and I am so glad that I don't have to keep looking for a good colorist in the US. Edita is not just good- she is AMAZING, and such a nice person too. I came in with a horrible dye job and I left the salon a different person. She was incredibly conscientious and seems very devoted to her work and her clients. The two hour train I took to go see her were totally worth it. She will make you look--and feel--beautiful!

Best blond highlights ever !!

I JUST LOVE PATRICIA R...... don't know how I'll survive without her, now that I can't come back to NYC on a regular basis. I used to live in NYC and then moved to Scottsdale, but thank goodness work always brought me back, and i was able to get my hair highlights. I tried hi end, low end, mid end name it (even Vidal Sassoon) salons in Scottsdale and no one was able to give me the natural blond highlights that I asked for, you know like Jennifer Aniston. I showed a picture to Patricia and she got me right away...this was 6 Years ago... SHE IS THE BEST BLOND COLORIST OUT THERE!! I will miss her for sure!! She is caring , accommodating, sweet and very professional and knowledgeable, and she will tell you what will work and what will not work, which is great, since she does know best. I always leave feeling like a Million bucks (with the exception of some of the blow outs form the beginners).. and i don't mind spending the cash as i know I'm getting a great color. (I used to go to John Barrett salon, but the color wasn't that great and it was crazy expensive).
My friends even ask if I highlight my hair or is it natural, NOW THAT IS THE ULTIMATE COMPLIMENT!!

If you want Natural looking highlights go to Patricia Ribiero!!

Have your highlights done by Adita!

I have been going to Adita to have my hair highlighted since my senior year of high school (I am now out of college). She's great- I don't even have to tell her what I want her to do anymore, I just sit down and every time my hair comes out looking great. It's always a really enjoyable experience!

This Place Rocks

I had originally picked the this salon just because they participatein the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program -- (every single Wednesday you can schedule for a great free cut by a talented stylist when you donate a min of 8 inches of hair). Didn't know what to expect- I mean for free. Well this staff and stylist ROCK! I was greated by kind welcomeing people. My stylist, James was kind warm and listed to what I had to say; I was able to do good deed and still get quality service. I will go back as a paying customer!

EDITA the best hair colorist on the eastern seaboard!

I've been to the most popular and expensive colorists' in the city, but none live up to their hype or PRICE! My friend turned me on to Edita and while I lost the friend I kept EDITA!

Always on time, always caring, but above all, talented.

What sets her apart from the others is the amount of thought and care she gives to achieve the perfect color balance and depth for my skin color.

Finding a great colorist is like finding your perfect perfume.

Once you've found it, you'll know because people comment

Edita, is a find, look no further.

Big Ego Meets Poor Highlights

Joseph - Colorist - egotistical, unprofessional, rude, complained that he had to correct his work after it came out poorly, rigid in his thinking and approach, unwilling to accept suggestion or feedback. I can not even see any highights through out the length of my hair from my visit with him, only on the top. He insisted he knew what he was doing, so he proceeded to create his art...unfortunately his ego is large and his work came out like crap. I still had noticeable roots after he highlighted me. He had a small temper tantrum when I brough it to his attention. I honestly feel sorry for him for how unprofessional he conducted himself. Maybe he had an 'off day', however I would not reccomend him for highlights, unless all you want is your root touched up. (and your looking for someone who's got a stick up his you know where... doing your hair)

Customer for over a decade!

When I needed a top stylist for the photo on one of my book covers, I fortunately discovered the artistry of Mark Garrison. He was working with Frederick Fekkai at the time. Since then I have been a loyal customer -- delighted with his salon in every way. I find the staff to be warm, accessible, & accommodating. It is no accident that the majority of reviews for the Mark Garrison Salon are 5 star. I have also read the few unflattering reviews and all I can say is that some people are never satisfied! The fact that someone would suggest that Mark's STAFF wrote the positive reviews as advertisements is ridiculous. Mark's establishment is first rate -- quality and class. It stands on its own merits. My beautiful color is a tribute to the talented ""Joseph"" -- and I travel from Hartford,CT. for his expert touch. I have never left the MG Salon unhappy with my cut or color. Mark has worked hard to earn his stellar reputation. He is caring, intense, and fiercely devoted to his customers. It is true that he multitasks because he tries to please everyone. People who complain that his attention is ""divided"" probably wouldn't complain when they are the ones being given a quick bang trim. If you want a cookie cutter stylist who will fawn all over you and feed your ego, look elsewhere. Mark is not impressed. He is an artist. He is dedicated to making each client look and feel wonderful in a setting that is friendly and unpretentious -- a welcome relief from some of the stuffy salons in the city!! And if you think this review isn't authentic, feel free to contact me!
