An Abusive One Man Shop !!!

Toka is an abusive one man shop. If you do not get John, then there is no point in going--as no one else is particularly talented. Stylist turn-over is unacceptably high, as this small shop has few repeat customers. As a case in point, my son had a haircut with one of their ""top cutters"" and emerged so chopped-up that he was embarrassed to be seen by his friends and family.

On top of a poor team of stylists, one of the owners of this shop is also a verbally abusive man who has a ""hot temper."" I have never had a more frightening experience than when accosted for running late to an appointment that I had previously booked.

Also, it is important to note that Toka is not air-conditioned.

This salon also has no in-house nail services, and is forced to rely upon personnel from the nail salon next-door for which you are billed double the rate for the ""outsourced help.""

Finally, it should be noted that Toka is very poorly run. Appointment bookings are often confused over the phone. In one instance, I showed up and the shop was actually undergoing active painting renovation (e.g. think terrible smell) while I was present.

Samantha Viguie

Samantha has been doing my hair for the past ten years and she always gets it right. I do a double process and it looks so natural most people don't even relaize I color my hair. I completely recommend Samantha, especially if you want to have gorgeous blonde hair!

Toka is a lovely, unpretenious salon.

Samantha Viguie at Toka

Samantha Viguie has colored my hair for many years. When she moved to Toka, I followed her . My color has always been perfect and right for me. With Samantha, I've moved from shades of red to brunette and have been pleased all the way.

Toka is a lovely salon. The people are truly nice; there's no attitude. They sell hair products, but there is no pressure to buy anything. I highly recommend Samantha and Toka to anyone looking for excellence.

He is the best hairstylist i ever experienced in my 9 years in NY and after about 20 different hairstylists! His got the most artistic touch and kills it in Balayage technique, on top of everything he put the Brazilian Keratin treatment in my fizzy hair and I walked out like a movie star! I totally recommend him and the Brazilian Keratin treatment to everyone who's hair is frizzy and dry..believe me sister, you gonna love it!

Fabulous Salon

Fabulous salon, especially Mete and Koray. Mete and Koray have been my ""beauty team"" for ten years. In fact, I've followed them from White Plains, where they worked for a number of years, into Manhattan to Toka.

As I'm always telling Mete: I will not let anyone else touch my hair! I constantly get compliments on both style and color. (I also call him a ""magician."") Koray is amazing at shaping eyebrows and removing other facial hair using threading. He also is a very talented makeup artist. Ater seeing Mete and Koray, I always walk out of Toka feeling beautiful.
