I have never been happier with a cut and a color before. I went the other night for partial highlights, deep conditioning, cut and blowout. I had a groupon and it said it would be ""senior- level"", so I made sure to let them know this when I booked the appointment. The groupon cost $119, but when I researched the reviews it seemed like it would be worth it. It was my birthday so I told myself to splurge. I made the appointment for Thursday, but called on Tuesday to see if they could accommodate me on Wednesday evening, and they could. Yay! Didn't want to spend my whole actual birthday in the chair at the salon. I had to work so they had an appointment for 715 which was perfect. It's hard to find salons that are open so late.
Anastasia did my highlights after talking with me about it for a little while. I have red hair and have had a very hard time getting highlights that look natural. Most places do not understand that highlights do not always need to be blonde. I made very clear that I wanted a sun-kissed look with a lighter red, a little coppery strawberry color. I had done a single process myself with a box a few weeks earlier, and I told her so she knew what she was dealing with. She was very nice and although the salon itself has an upscale air about it, everyone was very nice and non- judgmental. I came from work and was wearing scrub pants, sneakers and a t- shirt, but it didn't seem as though anyone even noticed. She told me she wasn't sure how my hair was going to take the color because I had colored my hair, but she said she knew what she wanted to do and she mixed up the color. She used the balayage technique of painting the highlights on and covering them with plastic wrap going through each layer of my hair. I had them done this way once before and this is definitely the way to go. If you have only used foil highlights before then you are really missing out.
I got a little nervous because she seemed to cover most of my hair with the color. I was cooking under the heat lamp for about 15 minutes and she came back to look at my hair and told me I needed 15 more minutes. Of course I was worried that my hair was going to be bleach blonde, but her reassurance comforted me. After she rinsed the color, she said that she was going to apply some toner to the ends, because the ends turned out a little bit lighter than she wanted. I stayed at the sink for about 10 minutes and then she rinsed the toner. She applied a gloss and I waited a few more minutes and then rinsed. I'm sure that this probably should have cost extra, because toner and gloss were not part of the groupon, but she did not say a word about that.
I sat back in the chair with a wet head and could see that my hair was definitely not blonde, and I could already see the dimension even though it was wet. Awesome!
David came to cut my hair. He had already introduced himself to me earlier before my color. I found out later that he was the owner, and he could not have been nicer. I have long hair that is wavey and layered. I told him that I wanted to keep the length and soften the layers. He started cutting, which usually makes me nervous, but I felt like I could trust him. He cut all of the choppiness out of my layers and now I have the most beautiful long layers that all flow together. I could not be happier. And after it was blown out and the layers all have a gorgeous subtle glow of highlights I was overjoyed. My hair has never looked better and I just turned 36. This was the look that I always wanted but was never able to achieve. I will definitely go back and pay the fancy prices because feeling this good is priceless!

I recently visited Red Market Salon and my experience there was amazing! I was very happy with the way my hair looks. I have a freah new look and feel ready for spring. I had seen David and will definitately go back to him. I been looking for a good hairstylist and finally found one. He listened to exactly what I wanted and showed me ways I can wear my new look. Now I have a great new style and been getting so many compliments. He was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to seeing him again.

After getting a GROUPON I went to Red Market salon. I had grown out hair about quarter down my back and wanted to keep growing it out. All I wanted was some light layers but to keep it long. David the owner listened to my 5 minute long explanations on how I wanted my hair and did completely the opposite! He cut my hair so short - it's impossible to style it!! Not just the length of my hair, the haircut itself was horrible, not even close to what I asked for. I was under impression that David never listened to me and ...I was very upset, almost crying.
Before I went for the haircut, I read Red Market Salon reviews. There were bad reviews mentioning David and Co., but right after one bad one there were 3 -5 good reviews (you could figure out the pattern easily - I guess, staff tried hard to cover for their boss).
I'm not really picky when it comes to my hair and I'm used to trying new places for haircut, but Red Market Salon was my WORST EXPERIENCE ever!
Overall, Red Market Salon is overrated place with not -knowing- what- he's- doing owner-stylist David.
Do not go.

he BEST salon in NYC!!!!! My friend recommended this late night salon to me. I always love how her hair looks. She told me to see David and Reynald. It was everything what I expected and more. The manager Stacey greeted me and must of known i had a long day. She offered me a nice glass of wine to unwind. What a treat! My consultation with David with right on. He knew exactly what I wanted. Not to mention he is such a cool guy. He Reynald did my highlights and fixed my color from a previous salon. . This was far one of my Best haircuts! I will definetly be back. Thank you Red Market!!

I just visited Red Market Salon. Do not waste your money and time. If you went there - stay away from David Cotteblanche, the owner. After telling him numerous times that I did not want my hair cut short (I specifically said 1/2 inch! just to trim it and to keep the style I had ) David took the scissors, got into that artistic pose and started. Oh my God! I was too stupid to believe that he knew what he was doing!!!By the time I stopped him, he managed to cut off 3 inches of my hair, one side inch longer that the other, disaster. And it was my Bday! My friends couldn't believe somebody who called himself as a hairdresser could do this haircut. I firmly believe that all good reviews were posted by Red Market staff.
This Salon will be having new location pretty soon - but again, same people, same hairdressers, same David the owner.

Finding a good hairstylist is harder than finding a boyfriend in this city so when you find one hold on to him/her. That?s what I did with David years ago. He knows exactly how my hair will react to each snip. I have had so many different looks over the years and David has always been the one to execute my vision. I constantly get stopped by strangers who want to know where I cut my hair or who simply want to compliment me on my cut.
I have had short hair for over a year now so I go to Red Market every couple of months and each time it?s a great experience. The staff is super friendly, particularly Stacey, the salon manager. The atmosphere is fun and laid back, which makes you feel at ease the minute you walk in.
Whether you want something funky and edgy or something more classic I recommend David - I trust him 100% with my hair.

Great atmosphere and very professional staff members.
David the French owner and hairstylist is very friendly and talented.
I'm allways welcomed with a glass of wine and good atmosphere even at 11pm.
I highly recommend this salon

This is the first review I have ever written. It has been 1 month since my haircut with DAVID the owner and I am so unhappy. Miserable to be more exact. I have curly hair and have always gone to Devachan, I should have never left. Anyway, David the owner cut my hair up to my chin and I have curly hair....when it dries its shorter. Anyone should know this. My hair was mid-back length (pretty long) and now its at my chin ( i have to straighten it to make it look semi-normal). Seriously its horrible. The worst botch job ever. Hence, one month later I decided to write a review. I promise you I am not picky when it comes to my hair but this cut was ridiculous. He cut about 8"" off which is insane especially when I did not ask for that.
