I got my color from Ismael totally amazing, and cut from Danielle equally amazing. – Lisa O.
Beautiful place, great team, really friendly! I just love the professional job you can find here. – Paula G.
With very stubborn grey hair I was going crazy to get good color. Ismael is the answer to my prayers! He is the best!!! I’m still getting complements even when the roots are growing in. Thank you Izzy! – Gerri C.
Art and Eva (his student) cut each strand carefully and gave me a great cut. I left looking a thousand percent better. Art really knows how to cut hair. Highly recommended. – Diana M.
Gleam Salon is a lovely peaceful environment… open and airy and friendly. The staff is so helpful and caring…hard to find that in so-called ‘high-end’ salons. Suzana has been coloring my hair for years, and I wouldn’t go to any other one but her. She is the best. Suzana listens to my thoughts then she gives me hers, and together we come up with exactly what I want. The color I get is right on the mark. She is terrific and you can’t beat the price for such excellent work. Danielle cuts and styles my hair. She is fantastic! She spends time before the cut talking with me about the look I want and I am never disappointed with the final result. – Betty F.
My stylist Alejandra, was fantastic. I arrived desperate for some style and left with one of the best haircuts I’ve ever had! I wanted to chop off my hair and go for a fun, short cut. She didn’t even flinch at the idea and gave me the perfect cut for my hair texture and face structure. I feel like a whole new me. I can’t say enough about this place. If you are looking for a fun, professional, friendly salon with a downtown vibe, look no further. – JD.
Art was wonderful. An excellent stylist, conversationalist, and knew how to cut my hair so that I would not have to wait a week or two for it to grow into the length that I actually desired. The student discount and free neck trim make this place a winner too for any budget-conscious students. – Evan J.
Excellent. I’ve been looking for stability combined with high quality and reasonably priced salon for over five years and I’m hoping this is it. Kudos! – Jo Anne K.
It is a pleasure to see how beautiful Gleam Salon is. Congratulations Art, Suzana and all of you. I always knew what masters you all are at hair care but I really love the area your new salon is in. I worked at St. Luke’s for years and it’s one of my favorite areas of Manhattan. Thank you for designing such a stylish, upbeat and happy salon to visit. – Maeve M.
One of the best haircuts I’ve ever had, and I’ve always been extremely picky when it comes to my hair. This experience was precisely what I look for in a haircut. Excellent, easy, professional, and high quality. Art was welcoming and friendly; he listened to what I was looking for, and then offered a recommendation for what he instinctively knew would look best on me. – Gretchen S.
Amazing haircuts by Danielle, all the time!!! The staff is really warm and friendly. – Reshma A.
Being an Asian woman, color is always tricky, especially when you want a lighter hair color, if not done correctly, it looks tacky and cheap. Ismael listened to my concerns and suggested highlights instead of a single process. When it was done, it looked totally natural, and the best was it grew out naturally and blended in so well with my natural hair color. I totally love it! My hair doesn’t feel damaged and the color looks good without looking overly done. I love the friendly staff and clean salon environment. – Christie Y.
Highly-trained, talented professionals (kind of rare for this area) who branched out from a top UWS salon to create this really attractive, light and airy space. Their dream and it shows. Art, Suzana and the team are amazing! I went to John Barrett Salon at Bergdorf for years, but am so glad to now be able to get an equally high quality cut and color nearer to home!!! – Kelly B.
Totally pleased with the haircut I got today from Art, who instinctively knew exactly what would make me look my best. First class treatment all around and a wonderful calm ambience. I’ll be a regular form now on. – Ralph J.
Really great in every way. From the space, to the people that work there, Gleam is perfect. They are friendly, fun, and cool — which makes getting a perfect hair cut better. I highly recommend Gleam for men and women, old and young. You’ll be very happy. I always am. – Turan T.
The staff is super friendly and as an added bonus, they now display the art of local, up-coming artist. I was there today and I walked out with not only fabulous hair, by Art and Ismael, but also two amazing art pieces. If you live on the Upper West Side, check out Gleam. The staff is incredibly talented and they listen to their customers. Whether you’re a trend setter or a traditionalist, you’ll walk out of Gleam a satisfied client. – Faye F.
Thumbs up Gleam and its excellent team! – Tiffany F.
