Most women believe that their hair is one of their most important features. They will spend many hours every week washing and conditioning their hair and then fixing it into a wide array of hairstyles. In order to create a great look, it is of utmost importance to find the top hair salon in Midtown that meets all of your personal needs. Stylists that work in some of the top salons have offered some helpful advice for women who are looking for a hair salon that will be perfect for them.

Possibly one of the best ways you can find the perfect salon is through word of mouth. Stylists recommend that one of the best ways to find a great salon is to pay attention to the women around you. When you see one that has a great hair style, ask them where they go to get their hair done. Even more important look for women who have the same basic hair texture and type that you do. Complimenting other women on their hair and asking them where they have it done is a huge compliment and most of the time, your inquiry will be met with lots of information as to the best salons to visit- and maybe even the ones to avoid.

Many people believe that the best hair salon in New York City are those that have the newest and nicest buildings and actually are the priciest salons in town. Stylists in some of the top salons say this isn’t necessarily the case. While it is true that a salon that contains all the extra amenities and the all the “bells and whistles” might be the best choice, it is also possible that it is not the best choice for you. Just because you pay more for your haircut doesn’t mean that you’re going to get exactly what you want, or the cut that is best for you.

In a lot of cases, the smaller, local types of salons are just as good, and in some cases, the best choice. Typically, these smaller salons will have stylists who have lots of experience with lots of different hair textures and types. Additionally, they likely won’t be as busy as the other, larger salons like SuperCuts and will be able to take much more time with their clients to figure out what the client wants and what would be best. They can also take time to make suggestions to their clients as to what would look best with their hair type and texture and the shape of their face.

Stylists at some of the top hair salons suggest that you pay some attention to the little things in a hair salon. For example, if the office area is dirty or messy, choose to go elsewhere. Additionally, if the stylists in a salon have hair that looks like it is damaged or it is messy, that is a red flag that they really don’t care too much to pay proper attention to your hair either.

Finally, you want to make sure that the stylist you choose to cut/style your hair has a personality type that meshes well with yours. You don’t want to have a strained relationship with your stylist.

With just a little bit of research, you will be able to find the hair salon that is perfect for you. My personal favorite happens to be Michelle’s Hair Color Boutique located in Murray Hill, NYC.
