I have never had a better haircut than with Lauren at the Yann Varin Salon. She is professional, yet relaxed and pleasant to spend time with. And she spends a great deal of time on your hair, going over her work repeatedly until every strand of hair falls exactly as she envisions. The salon is elegant without putting on airs. Altogether deserving of high accolades.
This place is spectacular. Great ambiance and amazing staff- specifically Crystal who is not just amazing with her shears, and she’s good with her ears and a great all around person. Come here, and ask for Crystal if you’d like the best haircut of your life.
Yann and his team are truly magicians! This world class salon will change your life - I so look forward to the warm welcome and the extraordinary quality of all the services offered.
I have been a Varin salon client for over 10 years. They are truly the best. Everyone on Yann's team is extraordinarily professional, talented, creative and very fun to be around. Ask for Tia for color and Aurora for cut - raves all around.
Crystal did an amazing job. I'm so impressed with my haircut. My girlfriend convinced me to come to a salon and it was well worth it. This is my second time here and Crystal has done a perfect haircut each time. She's very personable and respectful and professional. Highly recommend booking an appointment with her.
I come from California to get my hair done at Varin!! Judy is THE BEST for cuts!!! They do fabulous color as well.
No one does balayage color like Tia! She is a true master, and she understands just what you need to make you look amazing-even adjusting to make sure your look evolves throughout the year. Overall Varin salon is highly professional and caring. I always look forward to my visits there knowing that I will get just what I want while enjoying myself.
I’m from Australia and was going to the Broadway Opening of Moulin Rouge so required a great hair style and make up for the event. Upon a google search I came across Varin NYC website and it drew me to book with them. Never having been there I was initially apprehensive but that was totally unnecessary as I was completely thrilled with what my hair stylist Judy did and makeup by Alexis. Service, consultation, professionalism and end result better than I had hoped for. They listened to what I suggested and then improved on that! So satisfied with the results I now have my go to place for hair and makeup whenever I visit NYC which is a few times a year! Highly recommended! Enjoy the Varin experience and results as I have
If you hate barbershops like me, then this hair salon is the perfect place for men haircut. Love every one here. 10 plus years getting nothing more than extraordinary cuts with Judy.
I love my hair! Tia is very meticulous with her work. She did exactly what I wanted her to do and took her time with me. I highly reccomend her, if I could give her work 10 stars I would! Love love love my hair!
Have had hair cuts by great professionals (and quite a few not so greats) all over the world. Yann is simply technically superior, the best I have experienced - and his salon is a very welcoming place. Warmly recommend Yann and his salon.
Fabulous balayage service, and cut and styling. I look forward to returning.
Beautiful space and staff
I had an amazing experience with Kimberly at the salon. She took her time to really study my hair and give a detailed cut. She was so nice to talk to, I felt pampered and she is undoubtedly my go to hair person from now on. All the staff was super sweet and welcoming. ❤️
The best of the best!!
I adore Yann's Varin Salon--because my friends compliment me after each visit. One of Yann's longtime clients invited me to join her for a cut during a visit to NYC several years ago. Now, visiting Yann is one of the "highlights" of each trip to NY. My last visit, on Feb 5, included a cut with Yann, color with Mara and eyebrow styling. My daughters also consider it a very special treat to get styled at Varin Salon.
I am so glad I chose this salon as a birthday treat to myself. From the moment I arrived I felt very welcomed. Judy cut my hair, and did an absolutely amazing job. It's honestly the best hair cut I have ever had. Then I had my makeup done by Crystal, all I can say is wow. The style she chose for me was absolutely stunning. I left the salon feeling like a million dollars. Thank you ladies for making me feel so special on my birthday.
This is my favorite place to get my hair done in NYC for years. Every time I go there- it feels like a Birthday celebration! Yann loves experimenting with different hairstyles and Tia can read your mind about picking the right hair color. Everyone there is very professional and has an incredible personality. That’s where the true magic is happening !
I now fly across the country to get my hair cut here. I grew up in NYC and have been lucky enough to get my hair cut in many of the best salons. None of them even compares to how much I love Varin Salon. Having moved to California two years ago, I now find myself flying to New York to get my hair cut because Yann is simply THE BEST. Finding a stylist whom you can trust completely is rare. Finding one who also happens to be one of the nicest, most charming, and lovely individuals ever — even more so. I leave feeling great every time. The cut lasts and I find I have to put minimal effort into maintaining it and blowing it out. He’s even persuaded me to recently try a shorter cut which I absolutely LOVE. I’ll add that I've been through some ups and downs with my hair. Damage after color (sigh) and mis-steps on my own, and each time I go in Yann is able to transform my hair and has indeed saved it from what felt like the brink of destruction a while back. Every time I go there I just feel happy to see the people who work there. Philippe who works at the desk is absolutely wonderful (and beautiful). They have an amazing team and a new colorist, Mara, who did an amazing job on very subtle highlights for me. I cannot recommend this salon more highly. The cuts, the color, the treatments, the people, the experience. Go. And then hope you don’t have to move across the country.
I got my first haircut at Varin Salon and I loved it. My stylist Judy did exactly what I asked as far as my haircut and took her time. Her blowdry was also fantastic and the service was great. I’ll defintely be back!
Yann and his team are consummate professionals! And you’ll enjoy your time too!
Quality services very polite staff.
Loved the salon and Crystal was a dream! Recommending it to anyone looking for a fresh, fun cut.
Judy has been cutting my hair for over 10 years! People stop me in the street asking me where I get my haircut! She takes her time, she’s amazing, I highly recommend her!
I have been to many salons all over New York City and I think this is a rare find. Everyone who works there seems happy to be there, and I love every haircut I get there more than the one before. The employees are all kind and smart and gracious and I look forward to going there as much as I can. It's a pity my haircuts grow out so well or I'd go there more often! The owner is always around and takes pride in everyone's work. I love this salon.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this salon and Judy! She takes her time to create a great cut every time! She is so meticulous about the cut - can not recommend enough!
The Varin Salon is the finest salon on the Upper East Side! The owner, Yann, imbues his innate sense of style, warmth and class in ALL that is Varin! This beautiful salon is a welcoming oasis that accounts for every detail from the moment you enter to ensure an outstanding experience! Everyone leaves Judy’s chair looking fabulous! In fact, all of the stylists are talented professionals. Eyelashes with Susan is an extra special treat!! Try the Varin Salon - You’ll LOVE it!
I look forward to getting my hair done here. The staff is so friendly and professional. The business is extremely hospitable, and the service is on par. My stylist and hair guru Judy, always makes me look red carpet ready after every visit. An amazing experience from beginning to end.
All women like to receive compliments... especially when the compliments address the color of your hair after you sat in a hair salon for a good 2 hours ! Well this happened to me last month after Mara and Ricardo from VARIN salon, on Madison ave , used their talent and creativity to make the best of my hair. Never have I received such unanimous feedback from friends or just people in a store...On top of that, VARIN salon is a super friendly , professional, and elegant salon, where the French owner and the manager create a unique atmosphere a la française : sometimes they will even offer you a glass of wine from their private French reserve ! Trust me you won't go anywhere else after meeting with this unique, nice and intelligent team for your hair at best !
Phenomenal cut! The only people I trust for over 5+ years!!! Have tried elsewhere with much disappointment. Highly recommend A+
So glad I came across Varin's. I just moved in to Manhattan and was looking for a hair salon with a French signature. Everyone at Varin's is very professional and friendly. I am very picky when it comes to hair color and cut. I did lot of homework and filtered out lot of hair salons during my online search. Sure enough, Yann Varin was the winner. Looking forward to my next visit
I love this place. I always asked for Judy to do the haircut and I’m so happy with her ❤️❤️❤️. I did the balayage with Mara and I love it. I definitely recommend this salon but FYI it’s a little bit pricey.
Perfectly located and excellent service and treatment! I did a trim and blow dry with Kim and she was amazing she fixed up the shape of my hair and gave me the best beachy waves ever! Will be coming back :)
The most attentive, creative service in New York. Nicest people with the most incredible skills. The salon is open, bright and an escape from the crazy world outside. You have to try it to believe how good it is!
Tia is an amazing colorist!! I went to her after having a horrible coloring experience elsewhere, and she miraculously has my blonde highlights back on track. Everyone at Varin Salon is extremely professional and knowledgable. The location can't be beat! Update: This continues to be my go-to salon. Tia, Ricardo, and the whole staff are amazing. I recently got a keratin treatment, and for the first time ever I have completely frizz free hair. It took less than 5 minutes to style myself today! Definitely recommend this salon!
I never write reviews, but this time I felt it was a must. I've been searching for a great colorist and stylist for some time now. I go to these salons and just feel like another customer sitting in their chair. At Varin though, Brittany was amazing. Her coloring skills are awesome and the past two months people keep complimenting me on my hair and color. My hair has felt a lot healthier too, it doesn't feel dry or anything. My boyfriend has even mentioned about how soft my hair has been. Total plus! Anyways, if there is anyone looking for a new salon... go to Varin and definitely schedule with Brittany. My experience has been awesome.
Best salon in NYC hands down (and I’ve tried out many). Yann cuts my hair to perfection. I was new to coloring my hair and Tia has made the process an easy and natural transition. Aurora styled my hair recently for a black tie event and it was just stunning - modern, sleek and unique. I received endless compliments. I look forward to my appointments and I am so grateful!
Couldn't have picked a better place for my daughters 1st cut. She just turned 6 and was determined to donate her hair. Varin was listed as an affiliate and we are so happy we trusted the art of their hands. Kimberly was exceptional! Yann has a great eye for such a professional team. We were full of laughs and comfort. Kimberly was patient and knew the perfect length, shape and thinning that was needed. We will definitely be back for the next donation
Working with Crystal at Varin Salon has been an absolute pleasure. She is extremely thorough and always helps me look my best. I’ve been going to see Crystal exclusively for several months and am so pleased with her work. Varin Salon is very inviting and professional. Ask for Crystal!
This is my regular hair cut place. The staff is always great. Tonight Stephani took care of my hair and it turned out great. Highly recommend this place for straight forward hair cuts.
I am a long time fan of Yann and his team and for those of you who already know their supreme talent I want to share the good news that they have added a new colorist, Mara, who is magical. She suggested some changes to my usual blond highlights and the results are more golden, fresh and youthful. So happy!
Great salon! Been going here for about 7 years. I went there randomly at first when my original hair cutter left abruptly from the salon I was using.I bounced around a few places but could not get a haircutter I liked. Finally, my wife suggested I try Varin as they do a lot of men's cuts and she thought the cuts looked good from what she saw. I saw Judy and couldn't be more pleased with the haircut she gave me. Judy's haircuts are the best I ever had. She takes her time to make sure everything is perfect and it very pleasant to speak to. The owner always comes by and says hello and they always offer drinks to anyone there. I have now moved away from the neighborhood but still commute 20 minutes from Harlem just to get my hair cut. If you knew how lazy I was you would know that this is the equivalent of a normal person walking from coast to coast. Judy / Varin is the best and that's what keeps me coming back.
I love this salon. The staff is so personable and helpful, and I cannot say enough about Tia - she does an amazing job with my highlights every time. I would highly recommend Varin to anyone looking for salon services.
This place is Awesome . Great ambiance and amazing staff- specifically Crystal who is not just amazing in haircuts but also the hair treatments.So refreshing and relaxing. Come here, and ask for Crystal if you’d like the BEST haircut.
Every time I walk into the Varin Salon I feel happy. One is always greeted warmly. The salon is decorated in a simple, but elegant and comfortable way. The staff is extremely talented. Their blow dries and color and makeup are always lovely. When it comes to haircuts, I am convinced that nobody is as good as the Parisian-trained Yann Varin himself. This is my very favorite salon. I highly recommend it.
Judy has been cutting my hair for the last 10 years - she is the absolute best! I won't let anyone else near my hair - highly recommend!
I totally recommend VARIN Salon. They are so nice and professional. I was opened for change and advice so I couldn't have been to a better place. They suggested several looks according to my face, lifestyle and taste. It was up to me to decide which one I preferred (since they all pleased me), I felt absolutely no rush or pressure in the decision making. This is certainly the best haircut I have ever had (considering the number of compliment I know this with absolute certainty!)
Attentive service in a soothing atmosphere. Teresa's color is flawless. Yann is beyond talented and really listens to his clients and their needs and wishes. He is the only person I'll allow to cut my hair. And, Ricardo's keratin treatment has made my daily morning routine so much easier. I've recommended this salon to all my family and friends. Quite simply, a five star experience.
Un salon avec une atmosphère chaleureuse avec des professionnels à votre écoute. N'hésitez pas à franchir les portes de ce salon !!!
Varin Salon has a truly pleasant staff that are very good at what they do. I have been getting my hair cut by Judy for 3 years now and she is perfectly able to execute the haircut that I want. The salon itself is very clean and has an all around good atmosphere to it. I would strongly recommend Varin Salon.
I really love Yann and the team there, Judy is the best stylist and is the only person I have let cut my hair for the past 5 + years, She is excellent with women with a full head of hair like mine. I also recommend Tia as the colorist to book at Varin. She is lovely and very hardworking and gets along with everyone.
I have been a client of Varin Salon for over 8 years and will continue being one as long as I keep my hair. Great atmosphere, great welcome (thank you Philippe) and obviously outstanding service (thank you Judy, my dedicated hairdresser). Try it and you will get addicted!
I was in desperate need of a refresh, and Judy (cut) and Mara (color) worked together to design a new look that is perfectly suited for me.
So normally I dont write reviews but this one is a must this was the best salon I'd have ever been to in the city hands down they really care about your hair and take care of you. One of my coworkers recommend me n I recommend everyone else. The only issue I have is that when I was getting my conditioning treatment I overheard one of the girls talking about how she not even licensed to work in a hair salon, now I dont work or do hair but u shouldnt be telling people that, its noones business and I dont think it great conduct to let others know that and talking so loud about it. Plus a good friend of mine told me that if you are not licensed then you shouldnt be touching people at all I pray they fix the problem because I will hate to not being able to come back because of violations. Overall great experience and I will be come back very soon
Yan is an outstanding stylist who's attention to detail is unsurpassed! The salon has a friendly relaxed environment which makes you look forward to returning time after time.
Marvelous Salon Varin !!! One of the places I look forward to visiting in NY along with Metmuseum and Frick collection , Varin is best in his category !!! And Crystal best manucure and hairdresser in town !!!! Mara is the most wonderful colorist !!! Congratulations Yann on your team !!!!
I have been a customer of this salon for many many years. The service is consistent, the staff incredibly talented and friendly. When she cuts my hair, I feel as if Judith can read my mind. And Tia is a true artist, her colors are elegant and subtle. Going to the Varin salon has become a family affair for my daughters and me! I highly recommend the experience!
After needing a much needed change in hair style, color and salon, a friend recommended Varin to me. Best decision I ever made. Love my haircut and color so much!! Stylist Judy is amazing and Tia is a genius with color. A beautiful salon with a wonderful staff, incredible service and awesome results!! Thank you, I found the perfect salon!
I have been going to Yannn for years and I can't recommend highly enough. He is both a masterful haircutter and a wonderful guy. Do yourself a favor and go to his salon and get beautiful!
Varin Salon delivers exceptional quality, creativity and thoughtful service. We have both been clients for over five years and are continually impressed with their work and their efficient and friendly customer service. It is a true pleasure to be a client of Yann or any member of his team.
I recently got my hair highlighted by Brittany. I am always nervous getting my hair done by someone else since I have been getting my hair highlighted by the same person since I was 14. There was nothing to be nervous about though! Brittany was FANTASTIC! She listened to me when I said I wanted to go blonder for the summer, and my hair came out GREAT! The salon was very nice and clean, and everyone here is so friendly! Definitely going back to Brittany every time I need my hair highlighted!
Rdv beauté incontournable de New York !J adore!
I have been a client for over 15 years and this is Parisian hair style at its best. The place is just classy and the hair treatment and hair cut is top NYC style. You can leave the salon to go to business meetings, TV interviews and social gathering and dates dinners certain that your look your best. Just one of the treats of living in NYC!
Excellent, professional Salon, with charming Ambience, highly recommendable.
Fabulous experience! I met Lauren based on a recommendation from a friend who is in the industry and I am so thankful that I did. During our consultation, she made me feel very comfortable and she understood what I wanted my hair to look like. She cut my hair the same day and delivered what we agreed upon. My hair has never looked better and I am looking forward to seeing her again!!!
I’ve had an incredible experience with everyone at the Varin Salon! Everyone is super welcoming and friendly. I recommend this will be an incredible experience for anyone who’s looking for a cute boutique chic atmosphere!!
I have been coming to Varin Salón for 17 years and wouldn’t change for the world. Today I had my highlights and hair cut and I always come out feeling like a million Bucks. One person came in and another came out Merci Varin Salón !
My fourth year doing a perm here. Tina cut my hair and permed it beautifully. She also picked a color for me since it's my first time dyeing my hair. It matches my skin tone perfectly and I can't be happier. Tina's the most patient and detail oriented stylist I've ever met. Like everyone there. Definitely going back to them again.
It’s such a pleasure to work with someone who really knows their craft - someone who is not only learned in the techniques but who also has natural ability. This was my impression of Yann during my first visit at his salon over 10 years ago. I had visited several high end salons in Chicago, New York and London and never met someone who cuts hair at this level. My hair is long and layered at the ends, and Yann creates this look to perfection every time. I have many times been stopped on the street by people who give me compliments and want to know where I get my hair done.
Judy has been cutting my hair for a year and a half now, and I am absolutely thrilled to have found her. She gives me an amazing cut every time. In fact, her cuts are so good that I seldom even bother to blow dry or put any styling product in my hair. The cut just makes it fall perfectly when it air dries, and I’m sure everyone knows how rare that is! I don’t usually make like making small talk at the beauty salon, but Judy always makes my appointment so much fun. The salon itself is lovely, welcoming and bright, and all of the staff are friendly, professional, and very good at their jobs. I always enjoy coming here!
It’s hard for me to trust anyone with my hair, but Judy Peña at Yann Varin definitely knows what she is doing. She has been cutting my hair now for 9+ yrs and always makes me feel like a million bucks when I see her. Highly recommend Judy and the lovely team at Yann Varin.
Love Teresa, Master Colorist, at Varin. I have been going to her for years and would not let anyone else touch my color. My blonde looks healthy, shiny, and natural. She always gets is right. And the Varin staff is terrific. Madison Avenue quality in a friendly atmosphere.
I have been getting my hair cut here for over a decade and it just keeps getting better and better. This salon always has a very warm, lovely vibe and the staff knows how to make everyone feel welcomed and pampered. Judy is fantastic--thoughtful, creative, a great listener who works with me to give me a great cut. I have very thick, curly hair which can be unruly but Judy always leaves me looking and feeling better than I could have imagined. And the rest of the staff is always helpful and professional. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
The employees at Varin Salon work well together, and they create a warm, welcoming environment for customers. There are a wide range of services available, and I especially enjoy the makeup services. The location of the salon is ideal, and customers may arrange to directly order food to the salon.
I gave it a lot of thoughts before I decided to post this comments and I am NOT sure what happened because the other reviewers have nothing but great things to say about this place. I purchased a Gilt city Boucher last July for full Balayage, brought a picture of a girl with similar hair type an complexion as a guide. To make the story short I walked in with below the shoulder hair length, see pic below, the hair colorist must had been an apprentice that she bleached my hair to a point that I lost 50% and the rest was so damaged that I had to get a haircut above my ears. When I called the next day they treated me like I had done something to them when I was the victim. The first photo was the guide, the 2nd was my hair original hair before they touched it, the rest was the result. Oh and to top things I walked out with wet hair :)
Great haircuts and wonderful fun people.
they give you free drinks with your haircut i got my hair cut there they're cool ask for Yann, he's cool too
Varin is by far the best hair salon I have been to. I stumbled upon the salon when I was in the area and needed a last minute set of highlights and haircut. I am not quick to change a colorist or hair stylist. I received numerous compliments and was so satisfied with with the results. 3 years later and I would never go anywhere else. Tia is hands down the best colorist around. Her unique technique overall coupled with her ability to tailor her work to the individual client make her simply the best. Judy is a phenomenal hairstylist with excellent recommendations for styling hair so that your hair can grow out and still hold it’s style. Yann, owner of the salon, is a pleasure to deal with and always finds a way to accommodate my crazy life schedule. One visit to the salon and you will never look back!! #tia_martinez tia martinez hair
It doesn't get better than this! If you wish to enter an establishment, forget the demands and stresses of daily life, be treated with kindness and respect and come out looking so amazing that heads literally turn as you skip off down Madison Ave., book an appt. immediately @Varin Salon!
Best salon in NYC, Yann always manages to make me look 10 years younger. Love the vibe and cleanliness and the music is always great
I love Varin Salon. The environment is serene and the staff is warm and lovely. Colorist Tia Martinez is a genius. Whether your hair is virgin, or it’s been through it all, she knows what to do. She is a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to hair. I have genuinely referred to her as my “hair doctor” because she always brings it back to life! Every session with her is a dream. She's patient, communicative and really listens to her clients. Personally, I feel nervous at beauty consultations, doctors appointments or hair sessions, but Tia always puts me at ease. She makes people feel taken care of so we can relax and trust her to work her magic. Tia has loyal clients (and that is for good reason.) She has a gentle touch with a steady focus. If you’ve ever had your hair colored you know how tedious and nuanced it can be. Her work and attention to detail is impeccable. If you’re looking for a brilliant technician and artist with trustworthy hands, she is the colorist you need. Stop looking, you found her! <3
I have been coming to Varin salon since I moved to NYC 6 years ago. It was the first salon that was recommended to me as being the best, and from the moment I walked in and met the team I felt at home. My hair has never looked so good and been so healthy. Beautiful atmosphere and amazing service and talent. Attention to detail. And they spoil you with a glass of wine or Prosecco if you would like. With a view of Madison Avenue and great lighting. And a make up studio is available too! Thank you Yann and thank you Tia for the best color ever. Lauren, you are an amazing stylist. I love you guys.
The best hair salon. Always do an amazing job! I won’t go anywhere else after coming here.
I’ve been coming to Varin Salon for almost 10 years now. I love everything about it. Judy who cuts my hair is the best!
Love this place! Judy and Yann are fantastic! I will be a client for life!
Great place and service. The staff are amazing, very friendly and professional. Highly recommended!!
Absolutely loved my first visit at the VARIN Salon. The staff was exceptional. Tia and Crstal stayed two hours after close to finish my hair transformation! Definitely recommend and will be back!
I grew my hair out for four years with the intention of donating it. I’m so grateful for Varin Salon to have made this transition for me a memorable one. From making my reservation to the in-house service and treatment, I’d do it all over again. Big thanks to Kim for cutting and styling my hair with patience as I excitedly waited for my “new look”. She understood the look I wanted, added her twist to it, and the end result is priceless.
Yann Varin Salon is the height of excellence in all you want in a salon: Incredible talent in every aspect of hair care. Yann and his staff are very professional with a cheerful sophistication and devotion to their clients. The salon has a beautiful harmonious atmosphere in the middle of Madison Avenue. I highly recommend Yann Varin Salon.
I have been going to Yann Varin for about 5 years. Yann's cuts are the best in town and Sarah is a terrific colorist. The salon is pleasant and sophisticated and I look forward to my appointments as they are always restful interludes in a busy day. I have recommended Yann to friends and family and all have been pleased.
Can't imagine going anywhere else on Madison Avenue. Great location. Atmosphere is very relaxed and the staff is very courteous. Yann is very professional and charming. Judy is a top stylist, creative and yet attentive to a client's wishes. Teresa is the best colorist and believe me, I have tried many over the years! If you are looking for a Keratin straightening treatment, there is no one better than Ricardo. He has done extensive research on all products on the market. Have been going to the salon for over 6 years, why go elsewhere?
I have been getting my haircut by Yann at Varin Salon since it opened. I have also recommended to several friends who will go no where else for cut and color. Philippe who is in charge at the front desk is charming and Tia who colors my hair is also a lovely person. Yann, the owner and my hairstylist is not only one of the most talented, but he is also the most handsome, kind and thoughtful people I know. The salon is attractive but the best part is how down to earth everyone is... the vibe is professional but relaxed.
I had an amazing full-head balayage done by Karin! She was super friendly and considerate of my needs. The color came out exactly how I wanted and I was more than pleased with the results. I can't even tell you how many compliments I've received on my fresh color. Highly recommend!
Absolutely fabulous salon in so many ways. I get my haircut with Yann and he is so talented and makes my hair look fabulous. The style lasts for much long than all the prior places I've gone and I feel great. Tia is amazing with the balyage color treatment - extremely patient and attune to the color that fits your face the best. Everyone in the salon is very attentive and helpful and coming here is always a wonderful experience that leaves me feeling relaxed and beautiful!
I have been a client of Yann Varin , owner and head stylist of the Varin salon on 768 Madison avenue for five years , the salon itself is a refined, simple space, elegant and unpretentious. There , women of all ages can feel confident in the creativity of the stylist Yann has assembled . the hair cuts i received from Yann are a little edgy and classic at the same time , I have very short hair and yet he manages to tweak the cut , always discussing his ideas before beginning the cut . I couldn't be happier with the results . Mara , a new colorist has been added to the team , she has a wonderful eye ,lightening my blonde hair to a color that i always wanted .She did this without creating the itchy scalp that usually occurs when i do coloring . All in all i can not recommend this salon highly enough , the friendliness , creativity and fashion forward styling make it a first choice . I highly recommend the Varin salon . Natalie Shinbach
I had my hair cut with Kimberly. She is just AMAZING. It was a big change for me, I had more than 10 inches cut. And she could make it very pretty and stylish. Thank you Kim! I love it.
The search is over. Yann is the best hairstylist in the city. I was getting my brows done by Angela at Exhale (Madison Ave) and asked her who she recommended for a haircut. She said she only reconended 1 person - a Frenchman named Yann Varin, the owner of Varin Salon. She said he took the time to study the face, the hair and that he was talented and technically perfect. I wasted no time in walking the 10 blocks to his salon to see if he was there and had time to see me. The friendly front desk attendant quickly went to get Yann who was in between appointments. The salon was pleasantly busy and Yann sat down with me to go over what I was looking for. I have dark, medium/long length, wavy/curly hair and had the same cut and look for so long so was looking for a refresh. He was sweet, relaxed, very attentive, matter of fact, he Listened, he took his time, he thought before he spoke, he was an angel. He carefully assessed my hair and face and said he had 3 recommendations for me. The first was to keep the length but add face framing layers. The second was a shorter cut with longer side swept bangs to give me more volume at the crown. The 3rd was a combo of 1 and 2. The consult was 20 minutes or so and he had great Pinterest photos to reference the looks he recommended. I was sold on how professional and knowledgeable he was. He had a client waiting so he asked if I could come back in an hour. I gladly did. Since it was my first appointment he took his time and I was in no rush. Hes a great conversationalist and gives thoughts to his answers and questions. He would cut and measure, have me stand, have me sit. He'd look at the head from different angles and the chair was right by a large window that let in great light. He would take a few steps back to check the work as he was going along. He wasn't one of those who just kept his head down and chopped away. Again, technically perfect. In the end of that wonderful 2 hours, I am the proud owner of a gorgeous head of hair. Medium length, light layers at the crown that give me volume and movement, sexy, long side swept bangs. My hair was washed and then Yann took over from the cut to the blow dry. He also used a curling iron to bring out the layers a bit. My hair is happy again. Movement and shine have been restored and my hair smells heavenly as an added bonus. Salon is friendly, sophisticated without trying, clean, light filled, not at all pretentious and happy clients flowed in and out. Go!
Professional work and very friendly staff, thank you Yann, Philippe and all !
