I never write reviews, but I do read them. I'm a new mom, a busy TV producer and that keeps me pretty occupied. In August 2011, I bought a women's haircut through a prestigious website for Pepper Pastor Salon. After I bought it, I went online to read reviews on which hair stylist I should ask for.
I saw the bad reviews for Brandi, so I called the salon & asked not to have her cut my hair. I asked for someone else but the cost was higher, and I did not want to lose money so I decided to go for Brandi.
When I got there, Brandi asked me tons of questions on the type of cut I wanted. She was a great listener. She also added her own recommendations for my type of hair & schedule. Gave me options & took mine as well. Her suggestions were right on! and the haircut she gave me was seriously the best haircut I have ever gotten.
I have received so many compliments, but most important of all, I absolutely love it!
Thank God for second chances! I'm glad I was proven wrong.
Brandi you are a gem! Thanks for making me look prettier :)

i never read reviews, let alone write one, but i feel compelled because that's how BAD my experience was. first off, the shampoo sucked. sometimes i look forward to a good shampoo more than a good cut and this girl's massaging pressure was as weak as rain drizzle. and i've had sneezes that lasted longer. i was in the chair for literally less than 3 minutes. now let's get to brandi, my designated charity for the day. she was rude, brash, and man-handled me like a child to sit up straight or look this way or that way. um, i'm aware of the differences in directions and words would have been sufficient. she was SOOO fake in asking me conversational questions, in which, she would interrupt my answers or respond in a way where it was completely obvious she hadn't been paying attention. overall, the WORST salon experience ever, and i've been to a TON. too bad, i was looking forward to this hair experience matching the charm of the area but oh well. plenty of other great salons who deserve my cash.

Despite living in NYC for the past couple of years, I constantly ventured back to my hometown to get my hair cut and highlighted at the salon I have gone to for the past 10+ years. Besides loyalty to my salon, I found that the value for the price far surpassed anything I had found in the city.
That being said, my attitude changed once I found Pepper Pastor Salon one day while I was walking around the South Street Seaport. I was immediately intrigued by the décor of the salon, which is classic & glamorous, but trendy & edgy at the same time. What truly sold me was the friendliness of the staff, from the girl at the front desk, to every single one of the stylists paying attention to you when you walk in.
Within five minutes of being there, I knew this place was right for me. Besides assessing my hair and asking my preferences, the stylists actually sat down and learned about my lifestyle & personality as to create the perfect look for me! I found this an amazing attribute, as many of the other places I have experienced in the past simply tell me what would look good, or what the “hottest new trend is,” without listening to my needs and wants.
Not only was the service amazing, but the experience was very relaxing! I got to slip on a robe and drink southing tea provided by Talbott Teas (amazing!). The entire experience resembled being at a spa, and it truly was the highlight of my day!
I would highly recommend going to Pepper Pastor Salon to anyone looking to get high-end results at reasonable price. Great job Pepper Pastor!

My girlfriend started getting her hair cut there and I would occasionally stop by to see her while she was getting done up. I was impressed by the interior of the place and how friendly the staff was. Before I knew it, it became my go-to place as well. It's easy to get appointments and I never get turned away. Worth the trip!
I've been going to Pepper for years, booked her for my wedding a couple years ago, and gladly followed her to the new salon. So glad I did! What a gem of a salon! The stylists and staff are so friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I went in the other day to freshen up my spring makeup collection (which was fantastic, thanks to Emma!) and while sitting in the make up chair I watched several clients leave with gorgeous hair. This place is like no other! Love Love!
I have curly hair and I used to be one of those girls that didn't care about a bad haircut because i figured it wouldn't show with all my curls. WRONG!! Since I had my hair cut by Pepper, and styled several times by Julian...nobody else is allowed to touch it! I can wear it straight or curly and I love it both ways--- a first for me! I have to go longer between cuts now because I no longer live in NYC and I have to fly in to see them, but it is worth it, and it always looks fantastic while it is growing out between cuts too!
I love this place! The neighborhood and the space is absolutely beautiful. The salon not only fits my needs, it fits my style! The staff is really attentive and cute. I have had done almost every service on their menu and they continue to impress me every single time! Once you try Pepper Pastor Salon, I highly doubt you'll try any other place. I know I won't!

This salon messed up my hair... pretty badly. Ok, fine, even the great ones make mistakes, new employees,... I understand. Having cried at night after looking at myself at the mirror, the next day I was brave enough to complain. At first, they apologized and tried to fix it. But when they were unable to fix it, they denied any wrongdoing and called me a liar, stating that my hair was iproperly treated at another salon, and made other unnecessary and denegrating remarks. My advice - do not go there!

Julian cut and colored my hair over the weekend. He did a really fantastic job! He got funky with the hightlights using more than one color and made sure he was nourishing my hair at the same time. I am happy with the cut and color and will def go back! I also watched the other artists in there at work and everyone looked great. I also had a chance to say hello to Pepper who is so pleasant and friendly. Thanks

Love the new salon. Atmosphere is so beautiful and relaxing. Christina has cut my hair twice now and she was so invested in listening to what I want and providing her creative input. I've gotten so many compliments from friends and even from people on the street.

High fashion meets a bit of goth in the newest seaport gem. The Pepper Pastor Salon is exactly what the area needed - a neighborhood salon with world class ability and concepts. I recently got my haircut by Pepper herself and have never been so please with the results. We conversed to come up with a harmonious vision and she was able to take my look to the next level. The entire staff was inviting and entertaining. I referred a few friends to the salon and they too were very pleased. Julian masterfully colored and cut their hair -they all look fabulous.
I've been a client of Pepper's long enough that I've lost track of how many compliments I gotten on my hair. Pepper's sense of style, her awareness of color, and her sharp eye for shape make her a brilliant professional who has made me look my best. She's been meticulously studying hair since she was a wee lass and has traveled the world to hone her craft.
The new salon enhances the Pepper experience, with impeccably-chosen acessories to compliment your chosen services. If you can't get in with Pepper, know that her fellow stylists are excellent -- she hand-picked her crew!
The Front Street location is fresh and fun (an area I rarely visited until now). A great coffee/pastry joint is across the street for pre-blowout munchies, and a bunch of swanky bars surround the salon, so have your sweetie meet you for a nightcap after you've been all gussied up by Pepper's peeps!
Watch your wallet here. It's not cheap, but I feel like a BILLION dollars when I leave. Enjoy this hot new salon!
my 15 yr old daughter needed her fine curly auburn hair wrestled into some sort of control.... the cut was amazing and as it grew out, it still looked great!!! the staff was friendly and on time, which is especially helpful with a teen who does not like to wait!
They took the extra time to show her how to work with it and some make up tips too!!!!!

Pepper Pastor's salon is responsible for some amazing, beautiful and unique styles. I can be sure that when I walk down the aisle, I will look amazing and I will look like no one else. They are so fantastic that I live in Delaware and still had to have them. No one else would do!

Pepper and her staff are amazingly talented and sweet! Pepper has been cutting my hair for years and despite the salon being pretty far from my apartment, I would NEVER think about going anywhere else. She has always exceeded my expectations with my haircut & color and I always leave feeling relaxed and beautiful! I trust her so much that I always just tell her to cut and color it however she feels like it :)
