Run, don't walk to Ouidad Salon NYC. The cut is worth every single penny! I have truly learned to love my curls. Anila is an amazing stylist and colorist. She has a wonderful personality and really takes her time to know your hair. AMAZING! Curly girls don't be intimidated by the thought of going to a well-known NYC salon. The staff are warm and friendly and the service is fantastic.

I have always loved Ouidad product and this year, I finally treated myself to a Ouidad cut/style! I chose Anila based on her biography on the Ouidad site and reviews. Great choice! I don't want to leave out how wonderful the staff is from the moment I walked in the door (Fri Oct 23). I cannot remember the young woman's name who greeted me at the front desk (Long dark hair) but she was kind & very professional to me - exceptional service! Anila knew it was my first visit to Ouidad and took the time to talk with me to understand what exactly I was looking for. Anila was Superb! She not only made sure I was comfortable with everything she did with my hair but she actually showed me so that I can style my hair this way at home. I love that! She took her time, she was in communication with me throughout, educated me on the products that she used and she made my hair look better than it ever had! I highly recommend Ouidad & Anila for your curly hair! Loved my visit & will return! Thank you! Michelle-Rene' Brown

I loved my last visit to the Salon with Virginia, I had color and a hair cut. She did a wonderful job with my hair and would recommend her. I look forward to seeing her again. Color came out great and my hair lasted for days. Thanks Virginia

Just want to say how happy I was with my first experience to the salon in NYC for the curl softening treatment with Ayanna. She took great care of me reviewing all my concerns and giving me a great consultation. I wrote a couple of goals down I wanted to achieve with the process and she reviewed them all. The end result of my treatment was exactly what I was looking for. I have all the movement in my hair and styling options etc. that I wanted. Getting out of bed in the morning is so much easier where it was a struggle before. If you have curly hair you can relate. But again this has given me alot of self confidence. Now I can focus on the more important things in life opposed to stressing about what to do with my hair. I am so happy with the end result, expertise and customer service I received. I can't wait to come back for all my future treatments and I will recommend the salon and my stylist to all my friends. Sincerely, Cristy K.

I have been to see Mirsada twice since moving to New York. Both times I have had an excellent experience. Most recently, I had her give me a perm to help give my curls more body and it was the best decision I have made for my hair - it looks fantastic. Thanks Mirsada for giving me beautiful hair!!

Vincent is AMAZING! I have never walked into a salon and walked out with curly hair. My stylists have always blown my hair straight. He not only cut my hair to perfection with every curl he showed me how I can create the same look. I was also given a lot of time which was impressive for a ny salon!

I went curly in June 2006 and have never looked back. My first 2 haircuts were by Ouidad herself. Anila has been styling my hair for the last several years and she is wonderful. I love going to NYC for her expertise. It is a magical experience. I highly recommend the salon to everyone.

I have had a love- hate relationship with my hair for 37 years. I am a Latina with very curly hair...and the attempts to keep it straight were unsuccessful as my hair always ended up frizzy. I love Virginia! She made me fall in love with my hair. I now get complimented by total strangers. I recommend Ouidad salon to everyone with curly hair. Seriously worth the cost!

First time at this salon and was worried that the stylist would want to cut too much hair. I needed shaping to let my hair grow out. Melissa was great and she to recommended cutting as little as possible. She reduced bulk in the back and then taught me how to style and properly use the products. Will definitely go back!

Excellent salon. For years I was looking for the cheap way out with my haircuts, and always ended up unsatisified. Melissa was an excellent stylist, showing me exactly how to properly use the hair products. My hair is beautiful now, and I owe it all to Ouidad.

I flew to NYC from Hong Kong in October '08 for two reasons to visit close friends who had left HK two years before, and to get my hair cut at Ouidad. I'd first heard of the salon on my first trip to your great city in 2000, and couldn't then get an appointment, so I was determined to succeed, especially after a friend brought me a bottle of Climate Control to deal with my mixed-race locks. I made an appointment and got pretty excited. But it wasn't until I entered the salon itself, and saw customers and staff of every racial background, and all types of curly hair that I realized what I actually felt I had come home. Now I just have to find time to head Stateside again! THANK YOU for making me love my curls again!

Anila has been working her magic on my hair for more than 3 years - and I can't imagine what I would do without her. My visit to Ouidad is always something I look forward to and something special every woman with curls deserves to do for herself. Thanks Ouidad and Anila! I am on my way to my appointment now!

Anila is such a talented stylistcutter. I just introduced my sister-in-law as a client and she loved her cutstyle by Anila. She takes such time with each client and truly cares about each outcome. I always feel special when I leave Ouidad and my hair looks fab for over three months. I feel I get more than my money's worth. It is so cool to see Ouidad herself on the floor working alongside her staff. The pride of craft is so evident here. The entire staff is warm and welcoming. If you have curlywavy hair, treat yourself. And make sure to buy and use their products. They are the best.

I have always been proud to have curly hair - never a big fan of the flat iron. I have always been a firm believer that not every hairstylist knew how to cut curly hair, even though all stylists think they can. Therefore, I have never felt that my curls had reached their full potential until a friend introduced me to the Ouidad newsletter. Frustrated with my hair, I went searching the website and saw the salon in NYC. I made an appointment with Vincent and I must say that it was the best cut-style I have ever had. I have been able to replicate the great curls at home with the Ouidad products & the shake and rake styling method. Everyone comments on how fabulous my curls are and now I totally agree with them. Thank you to Vincent! I will never go anywhere else or use any other products.

For years I tried so many different products on my hair in an attempt to tame my curls! I would walk into a salon and hairstylist would circle me and make comments to each other..wow, thank God that's not my client, look at all that hair! I would feel like a freak show! Ouidad Salon is the first salon I have walked into and felt so proud of my curls! Virginia, thank you so much!! because of you and Ouidad products I am in love with my hair! Every where I go people stop and compliment me on how healthy, and beautiful my curls are!!

For years, many a beloved hairdresser kept my curly hair looking flat. So, at the recommendation of a few curly-haired friends a few years ago, and interested in seeing what Ouidad could do for me, I set up an appointment. As an artist, I am visually attuned to the differences in appearance between Ouidads haircuts and those of other curly competition around the city. Needless to say, whether its been Virginia, Alex or, for the past year, Anila, the Ouidad staff consistently makes my hairand all haircuts that I see walk out of the salonlook incredible. The curls are bouncier, fluffier and are relatively easy to manage. I can easily spot a Ouidad Haircut when I see one in front of me, and no other salon holds up to their Ouidad competion.

Melissa, I love my curls!!! You really took care of my curls. You listened and worked your magic. Thank you for softening my curls and really talking to me to make sure that I understood how to care for them until I see you again. Everyone loves your masterpiece. I will not be returning to the other salon since I am comfortable and pleased with the exceptional service that you and Carolina provided. I cannot thank you enough!!! See you in October.

Virginia did an amazing job on my hair! I was always scared of getting layers and angles because of all my bad haircut experiences in the past but I absolutely love my new haircut. Virginia really teaches you how to style your hair, she's really awesome. I would definitely recommend her and the salon as a whole to anyone with curly hair. Thanks Virigina!
