REVIEWS OF A.R. Hair Salon IN New York

L Chletcos

Have to say, Albert gives the best hair cut, EVER! Knows how to cut curly hair and the cut lasts. Also great colorist and best of all, No Drama! Highly recommend.

Dimitrios P

Mark is the best. Overall very friendy staff and fair prices. Best haircut I've ever had

Daniel Brennan

Jonny can honestly do no wrong. Always friendly, will take walk ins and you always leave with a great haircut.

Lena Ru

Markel has been cutting my hair for YEARS and not once I remained unsatisfied with his work! He has amazing skills and profound knowledge of what exactly he is doing! For years I've been wanting to cut my hair shorter than my regular length …

Viola Monson

Mark has fair and competitive pricing and he is no nonsense. no talk of doing crazy things to my hair. asked me what i wanted, we discussed the best course of action and then he gave me a fantastic cut in about 20 min. Highly recommend dry cuts now. He was able to actually see my hair's texture and shape it in a way that works with my frizz without being poofy.

Esty DelCioppo

Lisa Vitale

I have been getting my haircut by Roger for over 20 years and I would never go anywhere else! I can't tell you how many strangers have actually approached me on the bus, subway to ask where I get my haircut - he's that good! Love you Roger! Lisa xo

BernardFrancis Kyle

Sam is great!

Matt Tully

Have had my hair cut here by Markel since 2011. Great value and service!

J Flyer

This salon has always been wonderful and accommodating. Victoria is the woman I go see and she does an amazing job. I am extremely picky and I used to live in San Francisco. Once a month I used to fly back home to get my haircut back in RI. Once I moved to NYC I didn't know where to go but I wasn't able to travel back and forth to get my haircut as I used to. I heard of Victoria through a friend and I'm glad I did. I've been going to her for over a year and I love how detailed she is. She truly cares about your experience and she enjoys what she does. I highly recommend Victoria specifically, she's great!

Robert Halper

Great place. Roger has been cutting my hair for more than 20 years and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere. 5 stars for sure.

Laura Arena

I called at the last minute for a blow out. I was visiting NYC and they fit me in right away. I have to say this was one of the top hairstyles I've ever had. I think it was Roger and he took his time and really made my hair look great. They were very gracious and thoughtful. The price was reasonable and I left feeling very very very happy. I WILL BE BACK...5 STAR

Giovanni Mezzano

So, I live in France... And everytime I get back to NYC, I call AR Hair Salon to get a haircut with Markel. He's the best. These guys are super welcoming, and offer tea/infusions/coffee... Haircuts are GREAT, and price is fair. I cannot recommend enough.

Yasmin Shimonov

Amazing place I feel very comfortable Markel Give me a great hair cut and blow dry beautifully that last a long time . Great price got a 10% off for being first time client

Bella Yaffa

Markel was on time and listened to exactly what I told him I love the cut and color he did to my hair , I got tons of compliments .

Raul Morales

Michael Denos

Been trying to find someone for years to listen to me and give me a good men's cut. This guy was great and very inexpensive, which is hard to find in NYC.

Irene Fadeev

Great place, friendly staff, they work very efficiently so if you need a quick and stylish cut this is your place. In my experience they do better on short hairstyles than medium and long.

Nicole DeGennaro

I've been going to A&R for about 8 years. Mark does my hair, and he always does right by me. I've never had a bad haircut, and i always get so many compliments! I recommend Mark to all my friends.

Ronny Arana

Worst haircut I ever had in my life, this place deserves no stars! I made an appointment with a lady named Victoria, I went in with a full set of long hair asking for a conservative haircut and the lady cut all my hair and left me looking like a Chia-pet, I have very thick hair so Too short means it will stick up! instead of to the sides, very poor communication and lack of professionalism, her excuse was I had to wait 2 months for the style I want. so she did whatever she desired and thought was best for me, I'm very unpleased with this service! I left unfulfilled, overwhelmed and judge by some of the staff that was there, Never coming to this establishment again.

Rula Wakeel

Markel did a good job giving my hair a fresh cut.

Mary K. Doris

Very friendly, efficient service during the many years I've patronized AR -- both Arthur and Roger do excellent cutting and styling (not a suggestion that other staff don't but just based on my habits of whom to request). Everyone is pleasant and QUICK and prices seem quite reasonable. Updating my review above: still very pleased with this salon and the staff as of my last visit about a month ago (March 2018).

Basia Stasianek

Exceptional service! I truly recommend stylist Sam as well. He did my highlights and cut. The best color I have ever had. The cut was amazing as well.

Zak Vidinovski

Great little air salon! Friendly staff and great cuts for real prices.. Victoria was a superstar!

Luann Shea

I like how G+ puts it, as good as it gets! A.R. Hair Salon On Third Salon has hit that sweet spot of technical excellence, style, and personality that all come together to form a great experience every time. HIGHLY recommended.

Born ThisWay

Had the worst experience here. The appointment of 5pm dragged to 15-20 mins and finally 30 mins later. Rude!!! The cleaner lady was very rude. She didn't allow me to sit next to my daughter becoz I am not a customer, rather, I am just a person waiting for my daughter to get her hair cut and permed. Guess she has not had her sex for decades for such grumpy behaviour. Floor is mopped and swept and I cant sit on those "gold-precious-"coloured"-chairs". Coloured chairs in her words. Good lord! The floor has dried since and it wont even stain anymore had I catwalk on them. Stupidity! As for wifi, no access for customers despite 2 hours plus in salon. Nahhh... it won't kill... just a nasty experience, esp. the cleaner lady... go get some manners on how to communicate. Such ugly and rude way to talk to customers. Keep sweeping baby, keep mopping the floor.

Jean Huang Lundgren

Walked in, Markel immediately started cutting. Friendly and excellent haircut, rivals my hairdresser back home. Great value. Will be back when in town next time.

Mozell Miley-Bailey

Highly recommend!! I've been going to A.R. Salon for many years now because Albert is simply the BEST as well as the rest of the team, Arthur, etc. Great service and style plus, always a fun and friendly experience.

Melissa Larios

I love this place! Amazing customer service! I had the pleasure of having my hair cut by Mark and loved my results! I recommend to all my friends and will definitely be going back!

sunitha kumar

Amazing work , love the highlights and the haircut - Ask for Michael

Stella Blair

Tania turned my discolored locks and three inch roots into something quite perfect, so I can't give this place anything less than five stars. AH!!! I LOVE MY NEW HAIR COLOR!!!Sorry, I breathed in a lot of fumes from the dye...

Ruchita Poddar

Excellent neighborhood salon. I've always been able to walk-in for a blow dry without an appointment without having to wait. Experienced stylists who are sweet and friendly and reasonable prices. Definitely recommend!

Regina Khaimova

Markel cuts and colors my hair and every time I come, I get a superb service and attention. Professional and very knowledgeable! I learn about my hair every time.

Joana Pizzirusso

great salon!! no frills, helpful & does a great job. My go-to spot for fairly priced hair styling in Manhattan!

Daniel Inoyatov

Katherine Bollwage

I walked-in my lunch break bc I had waited way too long for a hair cut. Mark was great! He listened to what I wanted and made suggestions. I will be going back for color in the fall. I would, and have recommended this salon to friends.

Beth Liebert

Jeannie & Ryan Dalton-Nelson

Very friendly and reasonably priced. And I LOVE my haircut!!!!

Victoria has been cutting and styling my hair on and off since the late 1990's She is the best and so talented. My hair is not always easy to cut.

Ana Rotaru

The best haircuts I have ever had. I have been going to Markel for 3 years and my hair has improved in quality and length. I strongly recommend him if you a looking for the best hair master in NYC. You will love his professional, positive and friendly approach!

Will Reber

Best haircut I've gotten in the city. Whole staff is always friendly. I go to Markel who always pays attention to the details to make sure you get the best haircut and style for you. Definitely recommend!

Seth Wright

Always a professional atmosphere and a solid haircut by Arthur.

Christopher Kroner

Carissa Cordes

Kim is a rare find because he loves to work with curly hair. I actually enjoy getting my hair cut now, whilst before I usually felt some dread. AR Salon is also reasonably priced and I look forward to my visits.

James Santos

James Nugent

Relaxed, unpretentious, friendly and affordable. Vicky was great.

Madeleine Dow

The best price/service for a trim!

Mary August

Whether it be for Hair , brows, lash tints, a spray tan, or microblading I can not recommend Lacquer enough! Love the welcoming, professional environment, always the first place I check when scheduling any service.

Luminita Marineci

Absolutely stunning work! I went in for a BIG change ( all the way from Romania ) and Michael delivered! Best hair cut I have EVER had! I highly recommend this salon!!!!!

Amanda Munoz

A.R. and his girls r AMAZING!! Victoria colored my hair and it came out fabulous!!! A.R. cut my hair to shoulder length from being SUPER long and did a fantastic job! I couldn't be happier with my results!! I'll definitely be back!

Jonathan Gregg

Excellent haircut!

Matt Falber

Ask for Mike. He's a pro!

Anna Dinardo-Smith

Called at the last minute for a blow out. I was visiting NYC and they fit me in right away. I have to say this was one of the top hairstyles I've ever had. I think it was Roger and he took his time and really made my hair look great. They were very gracious and thoughtful. The price was reasonable and I left feeling very very very happy.

Lois Brosniak

I love Roger and the hair salon. Roger is a true artist in hair styling that really makes me look so much younger when he does my hair. The girls at work ooh and aah when I walk into my office after Roger does my hair. And all the people in the salon are so warm and caring, the shampoo lady always gives me a rough massage which I like so much. Thank you A R Hair Salon for all the many years you have made me look better and better. See you soon guys at the Salon.

Natalie W

Sam is a gem! I moved to NYC a year ago and went to 4 other salons/stylists before I found paradise at AR. They do both women's and men's hair and the stylists are friendly and talented. I was a walk-in and every time I go in I just call the day of and make an appointment. Super easy :)

Michael Musheyev

Zhanna Kotova

So happy with my hair stylist Aba I follow him for 16 years . He always keeps up with the trend. I always come out looking like a model. Love you Aba xoxo.

Owen Taylor

Good skills . 10 percent off first visit No waste of time

Karina Elnatanova

This is the most welcomed salon in NYC. Mark is the greatest hairstylist. He always knows what you want and he deliverers satisfaction, so you come out very happy and defiantly looking forward untill your next appointment. My whole family also comes to him and he is excellent with kids. We travel all the way from Queens for the greatest service.

Lenny Li

If you're looking for a cheap and quick haircut, come here. It's a really small hole in the wall shop lacking all the features of a high end salon, but I got exactly the haircut I was looking for and it only took 30 minutes. The haircut was only $30 before tip, and I was able to walk in without calling ahead.

Joana Mascioli

Great salon & such sweet staff! Unreal prices for Manhattan as well. Highly recommend!!

Ludmila V

Many years I go to this salon. Never I disappointed

Kim Chia

Amanda Lorenson

AR Hair salon are a great and well priced. They are fast and professional and do a great job cutting my hair at reasonable prices. Recommended.

Denean Paulik

I love this place. Sam does an amazing blowout and he's quick. I go to Michael or Sam for color every six weeks and they do an amazing job for a great value. Go here and you won't be disappointed!

Світлана Поджара

Don’t be fooled by the reviews - I’m sure they were paid for! I received the worst service I’ve ever experienced in New York City, and a spoilt birthday party! Look at the pictures below: 1) is my hair after 1,5 hours of torture in this salon, after the “specialist” did 2 attempts to curl my hair, with an iron and then with a cone. Picture taken 10 minutes after leaving the salon (and there was NO rain or wind outside!!!!) can you believe I paid $55 for it.????? 2) my picture in a proper salon after a 50 min professional session. It says it all about the salon!!! Totally UNPROFESSIONAL!!! The lady didn’t know what she was doing. I ended up going home and washing it off at once!!! My boyfriend tried to comfort me but my birthday was completely spoilt! Look at it closely! Those are not curls, not even waves - it’s was a complete mess! Moreover, the atmosphere is sick at the salon. Whatever I think about the lady that attended me - it’s one thing, but I had to listen the other “specialists” gossip her behind her back, in her presence, talking the language she doesn’t understand and not knowing that I perfectly understood everything they said. It’s a snake nest, not a hair salon, and don’t waste your nerves, time and money!!!

AnnaBeth Karson

Well this review was not paid for! I went to see Roger twice during my visit to NY, once in September 2017 and once in October. He made up a gorgeous, rich, natural-looking color for me and I get compliments everywhere. I only regret that I can't go back for my next coloring, as I don't live in NY.

Binnie A

Absolutely amazing work! I fly in from London and will only ever see Roger!! He is a magician when it comes to hair! Whenever i am home, i get sooo many comments about my hair! I make it a point to be in New York twice a year, basically so Roger can cut my hair!!!

Galen Pickard

Itzhak Failaev

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my hair, but he took care of me. What’s more, he listened carefully for what I was asking and he paid special attention to my preferences. My hair looks and feels great. It is really nice and warm place. Awesome experience!!! Thank you Markel.

Elisabeth Parke

Been there twice, walked out looking nice

Kevin Cabral

Maciej Szczep

I love AR Hair Salon and its sfaff. They have been treating me great since the first visit doing a fantastic job with my hair! Highly recommend to everyone!

Tina Carter

I get a very good haircut, price is right and I feel very comfortable being there.

Lucille Ignarro

Arun Mathew

They can cut Indian hair. Enough said.

Saina Shelton

I get compliments on the haircut I got from Mike. He is a great stylist and I love my haircut - Thanks Mike!


The people here have amazing talent, my hair has never been styled better.

Marlene Chandler

I love this place!!! Highly recommended! It's hard for me to get a hair salon that I want to go there again. This is the first one I'd love to go there again. I made an appointment with Ryan. He is very responsible. He listened to my preference and gave his ideas about my hair. The service is great. I would definitely go there again.

Louis Bradbury

אהרון חיים

I love this place Markel is great definitely will go back

David Simoneau

I got out of work and just looked up the closest hair place. I walked in and they greeted me. Everyone seemed really nice. They took my coat, sat me down at the hair washing station, and I immediately thought, "damnit, this place is expensive." However, for the service I was provided, I was very impressed by the price. Men's haircut with initial shampoo/conditioning for about $30 (without tip). My haircut was perfect and Victoria who cut my hair has been working for 25 years. She was amazing and her years of experience showed. You can't tip with credit card so bring cash for tip.

Ada Ruiz

The best color!! The best hair cut! A great service! Love it! 100% recommended!!

Bert Holtappels

Michael is truly incredible. I let him make his choices without getting too much involved and the result is spectacular every single time.

tal gilady

Caleb Newton

A.R. Hair Salon is the best. He is always there to squeeze me in and does a great job. I have come to the conclusion after being to a few places that an $18 haircut here is as good as a $28 haircut elsewhere. Enough said.

Malea Grubb

I had a great experience getting full highlights & a haircut from Michael. My haircut is maybe the best I've had in ages, and the highlights are fantastic...and the pricing is extremely reasonable for this neighborhood. Another plus side, AR Salon is open later than most area salons, so you can come here after work! Will definitely return!

Anthony Coffey

Everytime I go there, I always get a great haircut at a good price !

Maria Toromanova

I always had a great experience in A.R. Hair Salon and great hair cut. I recommend them always to my friends.

Anna Alexandra Varhol

Just had a fabulous cut and finish by one of their stylist. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Definitely will come back.

Michael Huang

Antonina Yekimova

Love this place. Great talented friendly people
