What first time customers are saying about East 42nd Street Salon:

“I love the cut and I have had so many wonderful compliments.  I definitely look forward to returning there the next time I need a cut and will definitely recommend you to all my friends.” April 10, 2012

“I discovered the incredible Carolyn on naturallycurly.com 5 years ago and she instantly transformed my hair and how i care for it. she gave me an amazing deva curl-by-curl dry cut and detailed instructions for daily conditioning, wet drying and styling, and 2nd day curl care. she also helped end my life-long trial-and-error curly hair product search and switch permanently to deva. after 40+ years of looking for the perfect stylist, my dreams came true! :)” May, 2012

“I love this salon. My hair is very curly and used to go all the way down my back. A year ago, I cut it into a bob. It was a scary commitment, but the girls at the East 42nd Street Salon did a wonderful job. I have full confidence in them. For the past number of months, I have been going to Laura. She does a great job with my hair, and I always leave happy. They cut your curls dry, which is amazing and makes way more sense. I’ll never go back!!” June, 2012

“My hair used to be so frizzy and flat. Now it looks great almost every day because I know how to care for it properly. I simply needed a specialized approach and some techniques for styling and caring for my wavy hair. I am so happy I found this salon which embraces hair diversity rather than a one-size-fits all approach. Erin is such a good listener and always has a positive attitude. I leave looking great and feeling great because of the attention Erin gives me while I am at the salon.” July 2012

“I loved loved loved my experience and I got tons of compliments, even on the next day.  I’ve never left a haircut feeling so happy and comfortable.  Kristy was great.  I’ve passed out your info to many friends with wavy and curly hair.  I’ll be back!” August 2012

“My appointment with Laura was great!!  She took time to listen to me and all that she suggested is working great!!  I’m 42 and have been struggling with my curls all my life, going to your salon was a wonderful revelation, thank you!!!” September 2012

“I had a WONDERFUL experience starting from the minute I walked in the door and was greeted by the woman at the desk. Everyone treated me so well. Sara was fabulous, I am so happy with my hair cut and she spent so much time with me, teaching me about the system and how it all works. I will definitely be back and I am telling as many curly girls as I can about your salon. I can’t believe I didn’t know about it before!” October 2012
