I came to the salon in anticipation of losing my hair in the next few weeks due to chemo for breast cancer. Alex was patient and generous with her time, while being fun to work with. She made me feel totally comfortable as I tried several wigs and then later when I had second thoughts about the one I had chosen. I highly recommend the salon, for Alex and for the very nice support staff.
Alexandra was a pleasure to work with. She made a difficult situation much easier to deal with. She had a ton of patients in picking out the correct coloring and cutting of my hair. She made a difficult day, not so difficult. She was warm and soothing. She made both my synthetic and real hair wigs look like my hair. When shaving off my hair, she was gentle and comforting. I can't say enough nice things about the salon. The owner sat down with us and he was a pleasure to deal with as well. I would highly recommend Alexandra and the salon.
So happy with Alexa, she helped me pick the right thing for me without pressure and she took her time, and showed me a variety of options, she explained them to me how they are different, how to style them etc. I received my wig today (since I came form out of town) and it came with a brush and other goodies.
It's hard to put into the words the transformation I saw in a dear friend of mine when she received her wig. She had been injured in the Iraq war when she was only 4 years old and the 11 years of cranial surgeries that followed, left her with large bald areas. Now 16 and finally finished with all surgical procedures your wig could not have come at a better time. The confidence she now exudes, not to mention the ever present smile on her face, is truly magical. It has been awfully hard to witness the difficult journey she has had to navigate her way through over the years and to have it end in such a positive way...for that, Andrew and Nicole....I can't thank you enough!
Elise helped me pick out a hair piece for help with alopecia - she was very personable and we went outside twice to get a better look at swatches compared to my hair color in a natural light. Once my piece arrived, she trimmed it for me, gave me lots of advice, and then I took it to my own salon of many years and they put a rinse on it to match the color even better, said it didn't require any further trimming, and that it was one of the best pieces they'd seen. It looks very natural, is quite comfortable to wear and blends in with my hair well. Very grateful for the reasonable price and the assistance I got in making a purchase.
We're so happy that we found this place. On the day that my daughter was diagnosed with cancer (and learned that she would be needing chemotherapy that would cause her to lose her hair), we stopped in this shop because it was near her doctor's office and we'd read some good reviews. Although we did not have an appointment, the owner of the shop, Andrew, met with use and showed us the types of wigs that were available. He tried a few on her, which helped her to fell a bit better about how she would look after losing her hair.
Working with Alex, my naturally brunette daughter picked out a blonde wig (because, if you have to go through chemotherapy, you might as well be blonde when doing it!). Alex then added some darker roots to the wig to make it look more natural. The end result is fantastic--you would never know that she's wearing a wig. She get compliments all the time.
We also had Nicole at the shop make a halo wig out of my daughter's own hair. After my daughter's first chemo treatment but before she started losing her hair, Alex cut her hair very short into a cute pixie, preserving her own hair for the halo wig. Nicole made the halo wig, which gives my daughter the option of wearing her own hair under a baseball cap or other hat. It should give her a chance to feel more like herself during this difficult time.
Thanks to all involved at the Hair Place! We had a great experience and, although it's certainly not inexpensive, we would definitely recommend it to others.
Over a year ago I was diagnosed with Lichen Planopilaris, a rare type of scarring alopecia. About half of my hair has already fallen out and eventually I will lose all of it. Like other women struggling with hair loss, I was devastated. My self esteem was low, was constantly trying to rearrange my hair trying to hide the bald spots. Grew so tired of peoples eyes going straight to my scalp when face to face with them.
I’ve never worn a wig before so I started searching the internet. Thats how I found HairPlace NYC. They had rave reviews and the more I read, the more I felt this was the place that could help me! I made an appointment for a wig consultation. At my appointment I met with Suzie. She is amazing! I immediately felt comfortable with her and enjoyed my first wig experience. Suzie took her time with me. No rushing at all. She showed me many wigs, put them on me and educated me on the differences in each type. I was pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. I chose a human hair wig that day and picked it up 2 weeks later. And OMG I was in love with this wig.. My wig, in the perfect matching color, made just for me! Suzie trimmed the lace and cut baby hairs on it for me. It was gorgeous. I put it on and felt like myself again. I felt pretty again!
I highly recommend HairPlace NYC. Their welcoming staff are professional and friendly. And I highly recommend seeing Suzie. She’s absolutely wonderful. Thanks again Suzie!
Did such a good job with both my synthetic and human hair piece. They make you so comfortable in what can be an upsetting process. Ask for Alexandra - she’s the best!
I am extremely grateful to Suzie who kindly, patiently, and professionally guided us through the daunting process of choosing a beautiful human hair wig for my 14-year-old niece who suffers from alopecia. With compassion and positivity, Suzie alleviated my niece’s anxiety and reticence about wearing a wig by allowing her to try on many styles without ever rushing us; by showing her how to put it on and care for it; by beautifully styling her final choice; and by always being encouraging, respectful, and caring. This positive experience has given my niece a new sense of confidence, happiness, and peace. I highly recommend Hair Place NYC which offers the utmost in professionalism, compassion, and expertise in a warm and welcoming environment. Thank you Suzie, Nicole, Andrew and all the staff!
I was quite dubious about this Yelp page, 4 reviews all 5 stars… sure. But, I need a hair cut and a stylist in NYC and they had a LivingSocial deal running so I bought it and figured I could just get a trim if I didn’t trust the place.It was a fantastic experience! I walked in and was seen immediately by Suzie who has been cutting hair forever. She sat me down and really consulted with me about what cut I wanted and was one of the first hair stylists I’ve seen who actually understood what I was looking for!
They honored my living social voucher without a problem and everyone at the salon works as a team to take care of each person. My stylist was Alexandra and she was very attentive to my needs. She was very knowledgeable and explained each step of the coloring, cut, and style process. I especially appreciated the time she took to explain how to curl and style my hair so I could recreate it at home.
I have long, fine hair and I don’t get trims too often bc I like to keep it long and I’m always afraid of hairstylists cutting too much off. I also wanted to find a place close to where I live and good pricing. So I took a chance with FaceStation (now HairPlaceNYC) and I’m so glad I did! I had Alejandra L. and she is amazing. A great listener, understood exactly how much I wanted cut off my length and did such an amazing job!! I will always go to FaceStation and to Alejandra L. for now on!
I walked in late in the day without an appointment. After a few minutes wait I was helped by Trini. I walked out with a great human hairpiece that blends in with my own hair beautifully. Trini also trimmed my other wig which was synthetic and had frizz all over the ends and made it look fresh and almost new. I had a a terrific experience here. Thank you so much Trini!
I got a haircut and conditioning treatment here, and I loved it! Suzie gave me a nice haircut and my hair looks much healthier now! Definitely will go here again. I am usually very particular about my hair but I trust this place.
Tenzin G. was amazing, I came for a wig consult and she was able to find the exact style that matched me on the first try! She has amazing skills when it comes to knowing what will looked match perfectly with your specific skin tones. I thought this would have been an overwhelming process but it was the total opposite. My wig came very quickly and I had it literally the day after my first session. This place is awesome!
