My new favorite place. It's small, clean, open friendly and all of them clearly know what they are doing. My stylist was a bit short on conversation that day, which was fine with me as I appreciated his razor sharp (no pun intended) attention to my hair.  I came in wanting one style, and he gently explained to me the changes he would make based on my hair - thoughtful conversation with a point of view is one of the many reasons I'm going back. Thank you :-) More...

Found this little gem on yelp. Went in for a blow out yesterday and Karina did such an amazing job! My appointment started exactly on time which I so appreciate. A very relaxing shampoo, followed by a quick and perfect blow out. She asked me what I wanted and understood my vague description perfectly. Thank you Karina! My hair looked beautiful all night and I got so many compliments (directed all those people to you!) More...

I'm new to the area and I'm very excited to have found this salon; it'll definitely be my go to place!Audrey did an amazing job with the color of my hair and the process didn't take long at all. I was nervous to color my hair after having bad experiences in the past that left me with damaged hair. I've already gotten so many compliments on the color and how much healthier my hair looks!Karina was incredibly nice and didn't make me feel embarrassed by the state of my hair when I came in. She gave me confidence that my hair will get to where I want it to be. She's also extremely outgoing and personable, which makes a huge difference for me when I'm getting my hair cut/styled because I don't feel like I'm awkwardly sitting there. She was able to trim off the dead ends without looking like she took much off of my length, which isn't an easy thing to do.Overall such a great experience and I felt that the price of a color, cut and style was very reasonable. Thank you! More...

I can't say enough good things about Love Lane Salon. The salon itself is beautiful and has such a relaxing vibe. When you check in, you're asked if you want water or a coffee & then are directed to the cozy couches. I always get my haircut with John and my hair dyed by Jaime, both who do a phenomenal job. I absolutely love the way they curl my hair after wards. This is by far my favorite salon ever! More...

Got a bob and looooooving my new cut. Went a bit darker on my color and have received several compliments already. Check out girl at local market couldn't stop looking at my hair. Crytal and Meg are just incredibly sweet and friendly. Life is short, be good to your hair and let Love Lane Salon take care of you. More...

I absolutely loved how my hair dresser (Kareena) spent time on each section of my hair. I went there for a major hair cut. And she nailed it. I'm in love with how they look. She's a really sweet person and knows exactly what she is doing. :) More...

I have been in desperate need for an actual hair dresser that suited all my expectations, and it wasn't till I tried out Love Lane and found their beautiful and talented KARINA! Overall I was very pleased with my visit, but shoutout to Karina for exceeding my standards for my first time here! Deff will be returning and will not be letting anyone touch my hair if it's not her; if it's your first time here I HIGHLY recommend asking for her,and I promise you will not be let down. Besides being extremely sweet and attentive, she's beyond talented. Overall service was great! Thanks again Karina for making me feel so beautiful and blessing my hair!! More...

Crystal is the BEST!!!! Never been happier with a haircut! She is precise, listens to you, and explains what she is doing. She does amazing work!

This is my second (ever) yelp review. Im to lazy to write reviews, but this place is so AMAZING that I had to. I have wavy,curly hair and always have to put a million products in my hair. I went in and John (the male owner-I think I messed up his name. I have baby brain sorry) advised that I didnt need to add color to my hair to revive it. All I needed was some TLC to bring back my natural color and locks. He did this Olaplex thing and then recommend two simple hair products. I walked out with mermaid hair and ever since, I style my hair with those two light weight products instead of spending a million dollars on Ouai products from sephora and still ending up with flat, cruchy,frizzy curls. Love him, love his honesty, love his hairstyling techniques. Take my money please. More...

If you're a brunette, don't let anyone other than Kristina color your hair. Just lightened my dark brown hair and it looks AND feels amazing. I plan to keep going lighter knowing my hair is in good hands. I've also gotten 2 amazing hair cuts from John. This is for sure the best salon in JC. Everyone is great and being able to support a local business run by great people is even better! Kristina works super hard and is passionate about her business and her craft. Everyone go! More...

I'm so pleased with my appointment with Jamie. She NAILED it. I have been trying to figure out what kind of red I needed to be and she did it (after many attempts to figure it out elsewhere). I showed her a bunch of images that were honestly pretty different shades and styles of red and Jamie was able to marry them all into the perfect color. LOVE IT. I will definitely be going back. The salon is also adorable. Trendy but not in your face. The staff all seemed wonderful. Best shampoo I've ever had too, felt like an amazing massage lol! Highly recommend. More...

Kristina and team have been doing my hair since Lovelane opened. I haven't gone to anyone else since and don't ever want to. Kristina has nailed every single color I have asked for which include mega white blonde, dark chocolate brunette, not too blonde blonde, and way blonde blonde. I can show her a photo of what I want and she nails it every single time. The team is super welcoming and fun to chat with. Lovelane is the best! More...

I have been coming to this salon for about two years and they are the best. Such nice people and amazing work. Kristina is so talented and was so kind and took her time with me when I went in for my bridal trial & then made sure I was able to get in again before a make up trial. Normally I go in for haircuts with John who is also super talented, kind & does amazing work! Highly, highly recommend. More...

I came in for the first time two weeks ago after finding Love Lane through an Instagram post. I was so excited to find out there was a salon that promised the perfect balayage in North Jersey (without having to drive into the city ). I'm a Latina with virgin, thick, dark hair and have been wanting to lighten up for a few months but have always been afraid of ruining my locks. After many weeks of following their account and seeing picture after picture of perfectly waved hair, I made an appointment with Jamie and came in. Even though I was a bit nervous coming into it, as soon as I met Jamie I knew I had nothing to worry about. She talked to me for a few minutes before getting started and we discussed what I wanted in detail. She reassured me and was such a calming presence. The staff had sparkling water coming my way every time my cup ran dry and I so relaxed and comfortable the entire time. Because of my thick hair, my balayage ended up taking 5 hours, which didn't feel nearly that long. Jamie and stylist Alyssa made me feel like I was with friends as they chatted with me and engaged me the entire time. I love love love my hair more and more each day and am so thankful I found this spot. Definitely will be coming here for all my hair needs. Thank you Love Lane team!!! More...

One of the best salons I’ve been to - period! Kristina is a color genius. And Meg gave me one of the best cuts I’ve had in a while. I got better color here for a fraction of what I used to pay in NYC. They take immaculate care of listening to your needs and concerns and are magicians when it comes to execution. Seriously in love with the entire lovely staff and the whole vibe of Love Lane. If you’re in need of a good cut and color (brunettes, esp!) look no further than Love Lane. You won’t be disappointed!

I have had nothing but amazing experiences at LoveLane. Kristina has done my color now for almost 2 years and I could not be happier. She is so consultative and really does a great job listening to her clients needs while also educating them on the best process for their hair. I could not praise them more! I’d also be remiss if didn’t give a shout out to Johnny! His cuts are great and always a fun time!! Love love love Love Lane!! More...

I had an appointment Kristina Maccaro for highlights. She not only spent around 30 minutes talking to me about what I wanted, but every step of the way she was attentive and really made sure I felt comfortable. I told her I was nervous at this was my first time veering from the person I have been getting highlights from for over 15 years. After the processing, washing and drying I loved my highlights. A week later I still Love my highlights! This will defiantly be my go to salon and would highly recommend it! More...

Probably the best haircut I've ever gotten. Mind you, I have super thin and long hair that just has always looked flat and boring. Somehow, John managed to give me volume and it was a game changer for me. I get compliments on my hair all the time now! I also got my hair colored by Kristina in late January. I wanted to go darker, but made her aware that I'd want it be a color that would be easy to maintain. She discussed my options in great detail and was very helpful with her suggestions. She did exactly what I asked and more! My hair still looks just as beautiful! The prices are a bit up there, but you definitely get what you pay for!! More...

I rarely write reviews, but my experience today warrants a 5 star review. I came here for the first time today for a haircut with John. By far the best haircut I have received. He understood exactly what I was looking for without having to give much direction. Was so impressed by his skill. The salon is very clean with a cool vibe. Just a bonus how friendly they are (and affordable!). Looking forward to making this my regular salon. More...

This salon has been my go-to spot for the last few years and for good reason. Kristina has created a chic space with awesome staff that are incredibly talented at what they do. For color I got to Jamie and for cuts Meg. Everyone is friendly and inviting whenever i walk in the door. Cant wait for my next appointment! More...

I had an appointment with Love Lane Salon yesterday, and I needed to write this review about Meg. Take notes because I haven't written a Yelp review in over a year, but the above-and-beyond attention and service I received from her deserves a 5+ star review. I just started visiting Love Lane Salon and getting haircuts from Meg a few months ago. From the beginning, she always took the time to understand what I was looking for in my hairstyle and provide advice and perspective on what she thought would look best with my hair, especially as I'm someone who is so low key with my hair maintenance. For my last visit, Meg ended my cut by giving it a really cool wave that gave my normally pin straight hair the volume and bounce it needed. However, once I washed out the curls the next day, I noticed my straight hair was missing something in its recent cut that I couldn't put my finger on. Now, when I'm not fully satisfied with a haircut, I get nervous calling the salon because I don't want to look ungrateful, high maintenance, or unrealistic, and I wasn't sure how the salon was going to take my request to get a haircut adjustment. But after I explained the situation to the person on the phone, the receptionist was more than happy to schedule me in for Meg's next availability. And when I saw Meg, she was completely understanding and attentive to my feedback; she wasn't upset, and she didn't make me feel like I was crazy. She really listened to me and made the necessary adjustments that gave me the haircut that I wanted. This whole incident honestly made me a fan of Love Lane Salon and Meg as it really attests to how much they care about their clients. Thank you, Meg. I finally feel that I have a stylist that understands me and knows what's best for my hair. More...

This was the greatest hair cut I ever received! Thank you so much Eden and the staff at LOVE LANE for creating such a fun beautiful space. I'm thrilled with my new long layers and am sooooo tempted to color my hair after seeing Kristina's work! I'll be back! More...

i came in for a major chop and crystal was here to PLAY.super thrilled with my new look! i've always had long hair and wanting to cut it but too nervous. crystal was excited and down to do it up right. she took her time and really knew how to work with thick, curly hair. i have gotten many compliments and feel confident. i'll also note that i just had a baby 2 months ago and have some postpartum hair loss (very minimal, just baby hairs around the face) and crystal knew what she was doing. i highly recommend and will be going back myself! plus $60 is such a steal!

This place is the real deal. I got my virgin hair colored by the brunette master/salon owner Kristina Maccaro, who is a hair genius. She gave the ever so subtle lift I was looking for that appears so natural and will work well over time. Stylist Meg Chase gave me an awesome cut to not only accentuate my finer hair and give it volume but also bring out the highlights. The vibe of the salon is very relaxed and boutique like. You can tell the team really enjoys working together. I was truly impressed with the care they provide before you even step foot into the salon. I filled out a consultation form so they had a better understanding of the state of my hair and what I was looking to achieve. Overall, highly recommend! And love supporting local thriving businesses. More...

I stumbled upon Love Lane while visiting Jersey City and fell in LOVE!!!! I was in desperate need of a haircut and John hooked me up with one of his signature "biddie bobs" !  I also got a gloss from Kristina (who is AMAZING!!!!).  I couldn't be happier with my services!  Im currently contemplating another east coast vacay just to refresh my mop!  Thanks again Love Lane !!

This place is wonderful. It was my first time getting professional color done. Kristina asked me lots of thoughtful questions and took her time explaining the process. Johns cut was gorg. The next day I came back bc I wasn’t comfortable with the color ( it was Kristina ‘s first time coloring my hair, so I wasn’t surprised or frustrated). As soon as Kristina had extra time we talked, she mixed a toner for me, Tommy the salon assistant and another assistant helped quickly dry my hair so I can get to work on time. The receptionist Carly was sweet and helpful. Just overall a really amazing experience and I am so so happy and grateful for their time. You should definitely feel comfortable trusting them with your hair . Thank you! More...

*Update* I got some bayalage highlights from the owner Kristina and a cut by John yesterday at 1. This was my first time being able to have my color done with Kristina and I was so excited. I was not disappointed! She is so incredibly detail oriented, meticulous, precise, patient and an absolute perfectionist. Her passion in her art shows through in what she does, it was a true labor of passion and she spent hours painting tiny highlights that absolutely melted and blended so well with my hair. It looks amazing both with waves or straight. I'm definitely going to be a loyalist to this place and am so glad I found it. No need to schlep into Manhattan anymore! This place is better than any manhattan salon and I've been looking for 12 years.The cut is also super flattering and perfect for me; John is amazing and does what he does so effortlessly but flawlessly. I think I'm going to keep this cut indefinitely lol.Original review:This is my new favorite salon! I made a last minute appointment today and lucked out with both John for cut and Tessa for bayalage. This is seriously the best cut and color I've ever gotten. I absolutely love it. Both John and Tessa listened carefully to what I wanted (which was admittedly vague) and yet they were somehow able to read my mind (it's a gift) and give me a look I didn't even think of. They are amazing and have a great manner about them. John gave me the perfect length cut that is super flattering for my face. Tessa gave me amazing subtle but noticeable highliThe salon is very clean and modern and stylish. I will definitely be back!! More...

I found my new go to salon. I desperately needed a haircut and am always apprehensive when it comes to taking off my length. (I have REALLY long hair) I made an appointment with Crystal and it was the best decision.After a brief conversation she knew exactly what I wanted and surpassed my expectations. She gave me beautiful wispy layers and a face frame. She then styled my hair to perfection! I can see she takes pride in her work and the satisfaction of her clients. 100% recommend Crystal for a haircut and style. More...

Amazing cut and color! Clean, chic salon. Knowledgable staff -- on top of trends and style. Very much appreciated. *located on the second floor of the building so you might be confused on your first visit when you don't see street level windows into a typical salon!

Love this salon! Not only wonderful people, but very talented. Kristina does a fantastic job coloring my hair, and always knows exactly what I'm thinking. She takes the extra time and care that is lacking in other salons. John cuts my hair every time too, and he's awesome as well. They make a great pair, and I highly recommend! More...

Thanks to Kristina  my hair went from a WHUT?  a WOW. The color and the health of my hair is like NOTHING I have ever experienced. Just as important was how impressed I was with the time Kristina spent, getting to understand my needs and wants so the "we" could formulate a plan that was realistic and would work. Kristina is all about protecting the health of your hair as well. When I did wash my hair and took a look it was the first time in a very long time that I truly liked my own reflection in the mirror. She got me and my hair!I also want to thank John for spending time with me, although we didn't even have an appointment. I'm looking forward to having my hair cut by him at my next appointment. He too asked many questions about my hair, my preferences, my ability to manage styling on my own.In addition, Harley and  the entire staff made me feel so welcome. Love Lane I am in love! More...

Can't say enough great things about this salon! Kristina did a balayage/touch up on my hair a few days ago, and it's somehow felt healthier and easier to manage ever since (and I love the color). She also took the time to really listen to me and understand what I was looking for, and was attentive, fun, and super helpful throughout the process. Not to mention the salon space itself is clean, calming, and beautiful, and the prices are super reasonable especially in the Jersey City/NYC area. I'll definitely be back! More...

Wow wow wow! This salon is absolutely amazing! Johnny cut my hair and I'm super happy with it! Tessa did my hair color and she is so amazing! She was very sweet, patient, and she took her time to make sure it's perfect. It took me 7 years to find a salon and stylist I want to go back and I finally found it! Highly recommend this place.

I LOVED my experience at Love Lane Salon! The salon is beautiful and everyone was so friendly and nice. I had a great time getting my hair cut and styled by Crystal Coisne. She knew exactly what to do with my curly hair and even showed me new techniques for keeping my curls bouncy and lively. It isn't easy to find a salon that knows how to work with curly, thick hair, so I am so grateful to have found Love Lane. I will definitely be coming back to Crystal in the future and will be making another appointment to color my hair soon. :) More...

Loved Love Lane Salon! Great service and even better haircut. Meg is so sweet and talented. She took the time to understand what I was looking for and did such a thorough job. The haircut was even topped off with the curling wand which made me love it that much more. After a wash and dry at home, the cut is still great. Will most definitely be back! More...

This place is SO great. I saw Crystal and she was an absolute dream. Giving me a short haircut I don't hate later on at home is difficult but she managed to pull it off. She was super attentive and made my vague, mumbled instructions into a haircut I loved. My  haircut is exactly what I wanted and Crystal has such an amazing, positive energy. Besides amazing haircuts, I was accidentally late to my appointment and no one even said anything about it- they just welcomed me into the salon. Even when my French bulldog proceeded to throw up all over the place (and embarrass me in the process) they were so sweet and lovely about it. I think it's hard to find a salon where people are genuinely down to Earth. Everyone at Love Lane was chill and had such positive energy. I am really happy I found this salon and will continue to go as long as I live near JC. I will probably not bring Arthur, the French bulldog any longer though :) More...

This salon is full of witches that will make you feel confident and powerful. Jamie did a full highlight for me 7 weeks ago. Since then, I met an amazing man and got promoted at work. Not even kidding.Just went in for a gloss to maintain the color. Love Lane and my new hair is magic!I highly recommend Jamie for naturally dark haired folks wanting that effortless, glamorous blonde. She expertly painted many little baby highlights into my hair to get the perfect color placement. It blends and is gorgeous straight or curled (not true of all highlights!). She's fab and I'm staying loyal to her and Love Lane. More...

I had my first appointment with the incredibly talented and sweet colorist Jamie. She knew exactly what to do with my color correction and seamlessly executed the perfect blonde I wanted. Her skill set and knowledge is above and beyond some of the best I've seen. I would recommend seeing Jamie for your visit and experiencing her magic. I'm a total fan! More...

I went to Love Lane yesterday for my appointment and when I got there, quickly realized my appointment was actually for different day. Not only were they beyond accommodating and moved some things around so I could still get my cut, but John gave me what was probably the best haircut I've ever had. I will definitely be back and also recommending this salon to friends. More...

23 June 2018

I've tried my fair share of stylists and colorists in NYC and NJ (some colorists charging over $400) and by far Tessa and Meg are the absolute best for color and cut. The salon is adorable and I LOVE that they are an exclusive Kevin Murphy salon. Never going to another salon ever again! More...



27 May 2018

Beautiful, hip, space with great lighting! Krista is amazing! She cut and styled my hair exactly as I wanted, she took her time with me and made sure the cut was perfect before she finished. Her knowledge and experience were beyond obvious. Cant wait to go back for color! Highly recommend Love Lane Salon and Krista! More...

Such a great experience! I got a haircut + balayage and LOVE the way my hair turned out.  Highly recommend both John (cut) and Tessa (color).  Very friendly staff, relaxed environment, cool vibe inside.  (All the other clients left with amazing hair too.  The woman next to me was getting a bridal hair and makeup trial and it came out SO beautiful!) You should check this place out if you're in the market for a new salon or have an upcoming event.  I will definitely be back! More...

I had just had a baby in September so the post-pregnancy hair loss was no joke and I wanted a bit of a change. I was kinda nervous because it's been about 13 years since I've colored my hair, but when I met with Tessa, she totally understood the "subtle but not so subtle" look I was going for. She did an amazing balayage and she was super down to earth while she was working her magic. We are both getting married this year so we had a ton to talk about. Afterwards, I met with John who added even more dimension with his cut and styling. Because I'm getting married next month, I wanted to preserve the length but he was still able to add some much needed layers and finished it off with an amazing blowout. Will definitely be heading back here! Thank you, LLS! More...

I treated myself to a JC haircut, and I don't think I will ever go back to my old hair stylist of 10+ years. I saw Eden and she was great. She understood what I wanted, and she was very personable too. The receptionist was really welcoming by taking my coat and offering me something to drink. One downside is that that salon lost the hot water, so they had to wash my hair with ice cold water on an already cold day. It wasn't the end of the world because the girl washing my hair kept talking to me to keep my mind off the cold. Overall, every was very nice, the atmosphere was great and Eden was very knowledgeable. I will definitely be back for my next cut. More...

18 February 2018

After reading some reviews and seeing the helpful photos I decided to book an appointment with John. I was a little nervous because I'm used to my stylist in the city but decided that I should find something closer because he may soon retire.I showed him a couple of photos, told him why I wanted what I wanted, discussed my hair (thickness/texture) and then let him do his thing. He gave me exactly what I wanted. I swear this is the first time I showed a stylist a photo and they gave me what I wanted. I was sold.  Why the 4 stars then? Because I do not like the scent of the styling products used. It appears to me, that this the "brand" in the entire salon. I find the scent too heavy or musky, similar to that of a mans cologne. I personally feel that in the service industry, some products should be unscented due to people being either allergic or sensitive to odors. The scent lasted all day too. Other than that - the cut and style was satisfactory. I'd go again, but would politely ask that no styling products be used. More...

Updating my review, as I've now been going to LLS for quite a while. I'm still so happy with my hair each and every visit. My hair is officially 1000% improved in texture and style since the LLS team took over managing my head of hair. Kristina and John have been responsible for all the improvements. John knows how to cut off just about every single split end throughout all your hair with out sacrificing length. Incredible. NOW - after my last appointment, and being so in love with my cut by John (ask him about #bidibob), and my color by the master herself Kristina... they have agreed to come down to Florida and do my wedding hair! I am the luckiest bride to have this LLS Power Team for wedding hair. I'd really trust no one else. Must go to this salon! PS. The online booking system makes life a breeze. More...

I love this place!! They make my hair goals come true!! If you like the done undone look, balayage, and people who really know and care about hair, this is the place to be!They now have online booking!!Also, the space is amazing. I took a photo here after my haircut and color and my friend told me that I look like an angel with really good hair. More...

Kristina rocks at color. She is a real expert. İ have a pretty difficult hair and she managed to give it the perfect highlights. Plus she stayed late open to make it good because it took longer than expected.. she really cares about her work and makes sure that she gets it right.... More...

Been coming here since I moved to Hoboken and haven't needed to look for another stylist since. I've had my hair cut and coloured by a couple of people and they've all been great! I love the atmosphere and the staff are so friendly and helpful. More...


Jenny W.

4 November 2017

I've lived on / off ( mostly on) in Hoboken for 8 years so I've been around the block a couple times with almost every hair salon in the neighborhood usually ending up with a cut that is okayish. I don't know what magic Johnny used when he cut my long, dead ( talking like a good 6 inches ) locks into something with style and shape I had never had before. After a momentary panic of "omg my long hair is gone" I realized how great it feels, easy it is to manage and how much healthier it looks. Styling on my own has been a breeze - it's bouncy and wispy and I'm definitely #feelingmylook. I had Kristina for some bayalage hair-painting to add a lighter dimension to my newly trimmed mane and I, again, am obsessed. This was only one of a very few amount of times I've added color so I asked to stay on the conservative side and am not disappointed. It looks very natural but also noticeable and blends seamlessly when I add in a curl or wear it with my air dry curl.  Bonus that the salon itself was gorgeous and everyone was welcoming and friendly. They will listen to what you want and work with you to create a finished look that you love. Definitely recommend. More...

Relaxing vibe, beautiful decor, great people, and incredibly talented stylists. I'm someone with very thick, long, wavy hair and just moved to the area looking for a new home for my hair. John knocked it out of the park and I'll definitely be coming back! Loved the cut and the styling - thank you!! More...

Had a haircut here today and I couldn't wait until I get home to write a review. Eden gave me the most fabulous haircut I have ever had in years!! I would scream but that would be frowned upon in public. I have always had troubles letting the hairstylist know exactly what I want and more often than not, he or she gives me the cut that he or she thinks looks good.. I don't know.. this time I did not feel rushed and she took her time in actually listening to me. At the same time, she gave her professional opinion and I'm glad I listened because I love my hair. So, if you're someone like me who has a picture in your head but somewhat undecided and does not know how to explain it, come here! You'll be in great hands. I can't wait to come back tomorrow and get my hair color done. More...

John - just super amazing master... with my arm on my heart I can say that it was probably one of the best hairstyles in my life :) Thanks, guys... I'm staying with you for a veeery long time - it's for sure :) More...

The best salon in Jersey City. Hands down. The best salon in NYC/metro? I think so. But I'm sitting here with the best colour I've ever had, so I might be biased. John worked miracles, the salon space is lovely, the Kevin Murphy products are amazing. Every client who came through while I was there left with incredible hair. I'm going back. More...

What could I say about Love Lane that already hasn't been said by about fifty 5-star reviewers?  Love Lane is a fantastic place and is now the one and only place I get my hair cut.  Walking into Love Lane you immediately feel like you're one of the family.  It's a rare feat for a business to be able to do this and they most certainly do.  I see John and every time he cuts my hair it always comes out great.  He helps me out with styling tips (as I'm a complete noob when it comes to these kind of things) and he makes suggestions for products to use that will keep my hair looking great until I see him again. I would most certainly recommend John to anyone looking for a great men's haircut.The best part is that I always walk out of Love Lane feeling like a **much** better looking version of myself.  Thanks guys!

Love lane is the best! The salon itself is gorgeous and has an awesome welcoming vibe - My hair was damaged from a previous experience and Krista knew exactly what to do to not further damage but still get me a little lighter by adding some highlights to the top and lightening the base - all of the products she recommended (both in store and what to buy online) were great and she was conscience of cost. Both haircut and color (I do a base dye for roots, ombré and hair cut) came out perfect and the price was good value as I've def paid more downtown and in the city for not so great of an outcome. Krista knows a lot about product and what will and will not look flattering which I love - Also she's just really nice and friendly! Needless to say my search for a new salon is done! Highly recommend ! More...

Kristina and John are the absolute best! Every time I leave Love Lane I walk out with an amazing new hair cut and lots of laughs. They are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to hair and I always learn more about their specialty then I did before during my visit. The salon has a very cozy vibe and everyone on the team is very welcoming! I would recommend this salon in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a hair salon in the area! More...

I've been following Krista since she brought my hair back to life after it was burned (literally candle fire). Her work is through her hands, but her vision and expertise produce exquisite looks. Her background in design/Parsons really give her the substance to call her an artist and a master of her craft. She's someone who doesn't overlook the details from her conversations to the hair. I commute from lower Manhattan and would honestly follow her regardless of distance. I've never had a bob hairstyle that I could style any way and felt satisfied with the end result until I met her.

Almost don't want to tell you, so I keep them all for myself. But I have to, they are amazing! Kristina does my color but everyone at the salon is a pro. I'm so grateful to have found them. If you don't know who to see call them and they can advise you based on what services you need. Best color & cut in JC, maybe Hudson Country even. Reasonable prices, very friendly staff and great space. I see myself going here as long as we are both in JC! More...

Loved my experience at Love Lane! John did an amazing job on my hair. He made sure I was Happy along the way with how the cut was going, since I was cutting off more than a few inches! The vibe was great and the staff was very friendly. Def a place I will go back to! More...

I came to Lovelane in desperate need of a color correction. A different salon in DTJC ruined my blonde hair, turning it orange and brassy. I sat down in Kristina's chair looking a hot mess....inches of roots, orange toned mid length, and extremely light ends. Kristina took the time to listen to my past hair horror story and walked me step by step through the process of fixing my color. Though the process took a few hours, Kristina made sure to keep me in the loop the entire time.She brought my color from overgrown and brassy to a beautiful, even, light blonde tone. As most of us girls know, getting your hair lightened usually causes breakage and dry tresses. My hair feels healthier now than it did when I walked in. Kristina made sure to condition my hair through our process to ensure my beautiful color stayed on my head and not in the sink. Sending me home with the right products to keep things healthy. The vibe of Lovelane itself is the type of spot you just want to hang out in. Kristina has style and it shows in every detail of her business. Beautiful decor, comfy client chairs for all those hours of beautifying. Welcoming for both male and female clientele. Do yourself a favor....go support this awesome chick that owns her own local business, cares about the environment (if you're a recycling nerd like me, ask Kristina about the cool ways she's found to recycle for Lovelane), and leave feeling like a million bucks.

Found my NJ salon and stylist!After moving to NJ four years ago, I was very very very picky about choosing a salon and stylist to cut and color my hair. I avoided the situation for as long as possible, after visiting a salon in Edgewater that overcharged and under delivered. If you are in a similar situation - I promise you are in good hands at Love Lane.A few weeks ago I decided a) my hair needed a change (went from a light brown/ditry blonde to balayage/blonde) and b) I should get over my trust issues and try a new salon.SOOOO happy Love Lane was my choice. My appointment was on a Saturday early afternoon and the atmosphere was ideal - great music playing, coffee, mimosa and water, and Krista who focused her full attention on making sure my new color was a success. She listened to what I wanted, viewed tons of pictures and asked followup questions to ensure we were aligned.I will be back and highly recommend to everyone.one side note for those new to traveling to the salon - it is not in the Alley - for some reason that is where my GPS took me.

Kristina is amazing and quite the cool chick. Our wonderful friendship began when she did my bridal trial and it's been cuts, colors, and fun ever since. Kristina has a knack for knowing what you are comfortable with and also what your hair can actually tolerate, so I never leave shocked, fried, or disappointed. Her husband John is also wonderful and cuts my husband's hair and styled some of the girls for my wedding too. The salon is beautiful!! Love the Kevin Murphy products too. More...

Super happy and impressed with my first visit to Love Lane Salon. Kristina gave my hair a 180! She took the time and energy in EVERY step to make sure that my hair color looked natural and that my hair stayed healthy during the lightening processes. She also explains what she is doing step by step and asks you questions along the way so that she can deliver the results you want.  Great, detail oriented stylist and an awesome, hospitable atmosphere. I am looking forward to my next visit! More...

I started working with Krista a little over year ago. Our conversations were fun without any awkwardness. Krista's relaxed attitude totally helped to keep me calm the first visit. She went above and beyond my expectations with the balayage highlights we discussed. She did an excellent job accomplishing the look I wanted! I loved it soo much that I returned to Krista every time I wanted a touch-up or a gloss. I experienced visiting Love Lane Salon for the first time this year. Besides the salon looking amazing, the service was excellent. I completely enjoyed drinking coffee and listening to music while my hair was getting colored. Krista has an eye for hair. She can absolutely execute the vision one has in mind. Go to Love Lane Salon. I highly recommend it. More...

Lo is the best hairstylist.  Started seeing her about 1 year ago and wouldn't consider anyone else.  She listens to your tastes and makes great suggestions on style that's fits you best.  She's thoughtful and takes time with your cut.   I don't do color but have seen the work she's done which is beautiful.  Because of it I'm considering doing color next time.  She's also fun and easy to talk to.  Ask her about her cute dog!  Promise you won't be disappointed seeing Lo.

Krista was absolutely amazing and I'm so happy to have found a hairdresser like her! She listened carefully to what I wanted done to my hair and told me exactly what she was going to do. I wanted a lob cut and to redo my old blonde balayage and I was so happy with the end results. She even explained to me how to keep my color looking fresh and what products I should be using for my curly hair. The salon itself is so nice and it's conveniently located close to all forms of public transit, especially if you're making your way to Jersey City from NYC like I did. I will definitely be going back to Krista when the time comes for my next hair appointment! :) More...

Eden is wonderful and the Love Lane salon experience is spot on! Everything from the music to the warm welcome to the decor -- it's a great place to get your hair done and the stylists have great technique. Eden was psyched when she saw the photo of the cut I wanted (taking about 6 inches off) and knew exactly what to do. She explained everything and taught me how to style it afterward. I will definitely be back! More...

Kristina. is. amazing. I've been hesitant to get my hair cut anywhere since moving to Jersey City - often found myself going back to Manhattan or Brooklyn for a good haircut.  Then I found Kristina! She is beyond talented. My hair looks amazing and I didn't have to travel to get it done! NYC talent right in downtown JC. Not only is she good at what she does, Kristina is sweet and easy to talk to - makes you feel right at home in her beautiful salon :) I will definitely be coming back! More...

A fortunately series of event led me to be walking to downtown JC when it dawned on me that I should get my hair cut. I haven't done so in 2 years and was looking to clean up and add some texture to my hair. This being a dangerous move so suddenly I searched yelp and immediately Love and Lane Salon caught my eye. With a 5 star rating I scrolled through the reviews while simultaneously heading in that direction. Once in the salon I was greeted and taken care of right away without an appointment (on a Sunday afternoon). I sat in the chair as the stylist Lo asked what I was looking for in today's cut. I launched into my needs and she immediately came back with feedback that assured me we were on the same page. The whole process of the wash, cut, dry was relaxing, easy, and fun! Lo told me each step she was taking with my hair as well as step by step tutorials on styling and products details. We also had fun conversation the whole time which wasn't forced or unnatural. After the cut was done she asked to take some pictures at a photo station which really just made me feel cool like I was heading to the oscars that are happening tonight! Overall if I could give this place 6 stars I would. It was pretty impressive to walk into a salon in a city I don't live in and feel right at home. I will definitely be coming back! More...

I fell in love at Love Lane Salon. Thought I took a wrong turn when I stepped off the elevator- and landed at a new underground rock and roll coffee bar. The minute I walked in, a cheery wide-eyed brunette literally just stepped out from a vintage pin-up calendar on the wall and handed me an espresso. She ushered me take a seat in the lounge area, which is way cooler than my own living room. The space is replete with bass guitars (which instantly makes this place more awesome than anywhere else, ever), vintage furniture, rock and roll coffee table books, tattoos, and exposed brick. Thought I was in my own amazing dream, except it was real life and better! Was almost sad to go sit in the chair when it was time for my wash and cut. However, John did not disappoint. Gave me much better cut than my former barber whom was nice but lacked the level of care and creativity exhibited at Love Lane. He was not afraid to use more scissors and less buzzer. Can tell these guys take pride in their work and love their environment. Looking forward to my next espresso and haircut. More...

Love Lane Salon has a great atmosphere and top stylists. I've been seeing Eden Fabbo for years at her old location and I have now followed her to Love Lane Salon. She does both hair and makeup and I have had great experiences with both. She's personable, listens, and her great style in infectious! A few notes on my experiences with Eden.1. Hair cuts and styling: - Ok, I'm very annoying with my hair and Eden has patience to deal with me. She guides me and I always end up with a cut that I love--plus she gives me advice on how to style it once I get home which is clutch. She's the only stylist I'll go to. I get compliments on my hair all of the time and her haircuts give me more of an edge.- I've also gone to Eden for an up-do for a wedding. To match my flapper-like dress she gave me a more modern wave look. I loved it!2. Makeup: I like a more natural makeup look and Eden nails it. She has done my makeup for a wedding and a few other events and I never feel too done up. She creates a good balance. I also had her give me some great costume makeup for Halloween. Overall, as you can see, I would definitely recommend her. More...

Love Lane Salon is above and beyond. From the moment you come in your greeted and made to feel at home. Kristina has been doing my hair for quit sometimes I have fine and delicate hair and she has been working on teaching me how to treat it and at the same time getting my hair to where I want it but treating it so it stays healthy. John and her are great they have a great spirit and make you feel so at ease. It's the best saloon I have found in a long time. More...

I barely write reviews but just had to. I've made my rounds at Fekkai and Hazan dropping quite a bit of cash on my hair in years past. I've found my people here at Love Lane Salon blocks away from home. Kristina is an artist...so easy to chat with...and my new hair whisperer. My hair has never looked better. I've gotten a ton of compliments. If you live in NYC (like I did until pretty recently prior to my move to Jersey City), trust me Uber it over or take the PATH. The NYC hair scam is over. This is the place to get your color done. She is amazing. Period. I've never been this happy. If you live on the Jersey side of the Hudson, well then this place is a no-brainer. I can only speak for the color right now but will soon post about a cut too once I get that done. I hear great things about the cuts here too. Jersey City...Who Knew?!!! The vibe is so organic. So thankful. More...

Love Lane salon is perfection! I've had a tough time finding a salon in JC that I love until now.  The salon is not only beautiful, but its also warm and inviting and offers a great relaxed vibe. The service was outstanding. From the receptionist to the owner, and Krista who styled my hair, everyone was so sweet and professional.  Krista did an amazing job on my color and cut, I couldn't be happier! Thanks so much Love Lane!! More...

I stumbled upon Love Lane on Yelp in my search for a new salon in downtown Jersey City and decided to give Kristina a try based on all the great reviews. I was not disappointed, everything about Love Lane exceeded my expectations! Kristina was attentive and took the time to listen to what I wanted and executed the cut flawlessly, the staff was warm and friendly, the atmosphere and salon decor were lovely, all in all a wonderful salon experience. Immediately after cutting my bangs I realized I had a serious eyebrow situation on my hands, but luckily Love Lane has a staff waxer on hand named Sam who gave me the best eyebrows I've had to date. She was quick, painless, and also very knowledgable about skincare in general. Love Lane is now my one stop shop for looking and feeling great. I couldn't recommend this salon more! More...

Finally a salon that meets NYC standards!! But it's even better, because its in JC ;) Most importantly the talent is top-notch. I had Kristina, one of the owners color my hair and she nailed it. It's been years since I've truly been thrilled with color. And I have supposedly been referred to the best. And I watched two other clients also receive great cuts and color. The on-trend salon loft is stunning, crisp, clean and comfy. Style and aesthetic of the space was not an after thought. The playlist was to die-for and the staff all made me feel really welcome. So happy to have a new local stylist who makes me feel totally taken care of. More...

I traveled from Morningside Heights in NYC to Love Lane in JC, NJ. That should give some idea as to the length (no pun) you should go to have your hair taken care of by a craftsman. Krista Pruent is that person. It's clear that Krista is a talented artist, with a passion for hair. She is observant and astute - able to listen to her clients and make suggestions that would be appropriate to enhance their beauty. That is no mean feat. She's clearly a dedicated professional, remarkably following up on my first visit with her, to suggest (non-residual) products to ensure I keep my hair at its best. More...

I have been seeing Kristina consistently for over 2.5 years. I first came to her about a year before my wedding in an attempt to begin to get my hair to a healthy and acceptable state for my big day. (Yup. My hair was that broken, messy, fried, lop sided and dull that I thought I needed 10 months to reboot it.) Anyhow, after meeting with Kristina, talking about my hair goals and seeing her work first hand...I was truly impressed. I am admittedly chronically dissatisfied with my hair and somehow Kristina revived it on her first try. Not only does Kristina give you editorial style hair (meaning exceptional color, precise cuts and custom styling and texture) but she also teaches you techniques and leaves you with a style that you can manage and maintain at home. Duh, my hair looks better when Kristina touches it. But I also style it better on my own in between visits thanks to her work and tips. In the time I've know her, I've easily recommended a dozen friends who consistently travel to see her and undoubtably wind up referring friends, family and co-workers of their own. She's that good and frankly, that cool, understanding, patient and skilled at working with diverse hair types and personalities. Also, I can't not mention John. John is equally as talented and passionate. He's my husband's stylist and is clearly skilled and detailed when working with men or women. I couldn't recommend Love Lane more--try them! More...

I've been waiting for a salon like Love Lane to open up around here. No more traveling to the city for me! What sets Love Lane apart from the rest of the salons in JC is its on trend stylists, real laid back atmosphere, modern decor and not to mention great playlist. I got my cut by Kristina, she cleaned me up and left me leaving absolutely loving it! You guys, if you want someone who knows what they're doing and is versed in the latest trends pay a visit here.

It's been fun to watch Kristina go from young, cool colorist to amazing, professional salon owner.  Her and John have created a wonderful and welcoming environment that feels like you're hanging out in their living room with the added bonus of walking out with great hair. She's always ahead of the curve and my hair has never looked better. More...

I usually go to a salon in New York to get my hair done, but with the time crunch that I had since I was flying this weekend. I searched on Yelp for local hair salons near my area, and yes I use the Yelp app so much to make decisions. I enjoy reading reviews and comparing because it gives me reassurance that I'm making the right choice. I decided to go and make an appointment with Love Lane Salon in Jersey City, NJ. I think it's really convenient that they are open until 9 pm and I had a 7:30 p.m. appointment. Usually, salons close by that time and I get out of work I can't even get my hair done anymore. I was really happy with that at first, time wasn't an issue with them. The salon itself was really beautiful, I love the interiors for it's minimalist and cool chic vibe. Kristina and John both worked on my hair and I think it's cute that they are a couple who are both hairstylists. They knew what to do after showing them a few pictures and telling what I wanted. I would definitely recommend to go here and book an appointment. I never received so much compliments on my hair, and the best part is that my boyfriend really loves it. So it was worth it! Thank you guys for being awesome, I never felt so confident with my hair ! More...

Ok, so its Sunday and u have this crazy need to "do something with ur hair"... Sounds familiar? So what does one do? Google-search "best hair salons near you". Et voila - Love Lane popped up as one of about 10 salons. Once i saw the pic of the owner, Kristina Maccaro,  (open & honest face, looks like she has a sense of humor, ADORABLE hair!!) and i read that she studied fashion, i was sold. Plus - she worked Sundays (score!). So come 2 pm, there I was.. Love Lane is situated in a stylish lofty building (exposed brick, ground floor in s a gallery, etc). The actual salon space didn't disappoint either - i've always believed that u can tell a lot from the way someone's work space looks and Kristina's looked just right!! After a quick initial chat (she's a dog- AND a cat person, so am I!) she started on my hair - i wanted it to frame my face more and to take some weight off, without turning me into a "soccer mom / Rachel from Friends", cause thats whats happens if they cut it wrong. Luckily, i was in good hands! Kristina did an amazing job and i couldnt be happier with the results. I'll be back for a trim in a few month and maybe some color - long story short, if u live in the area, dont go anywhere else for ur hair! More...

Kristina has been doing my hair for many years now and her style and expertise is 100% reflected in Love Lane and the quality of services they provide. She is the queen of color and my beautiful blonde highlights can attest to that. Her and John are a dynamic duo in and out of the salon, as I've booked them for styling at my upcoming wedding and all of the events leading up to the big day.  For anyone looking for a hair salon to call home, Love Lane is the place.

Love Lane is the best!  The atmosphere of the salon is top notch- it looks and feels like the loft space you always wish you lived in, while never giving up an ounce of professionalism.  Kristina is the only person I will trust with my hair, and not only is she incredibly talented, but she's also super down to earth and fun to talk to while you're sitting in the chair for a couple of hours.  Kristina is also the only one I'd want to do my hair for my wedding, and I've booked her a year in advance of the big day.  As a result, she's been awesome at helping me play with different cuts and color so that we get it right come wedding time.Not only am I devoted to Kristina, but my fiance is now a John convert, and now refuses to let anyone else to do his hair.I highly recommend Love Lane for anyone looking for a personal, customer-focused environment driven by deeply talented and passionate professionals.

The staff at Love Lane know what they are doing.  They are absolute professionals, and John gave me an awesome cut.  I've been back to him multiple times, and each time I'm more impressed.  The salon/barber experience is so great, if you want a clean cut John has you covered.  I know if I wanted to try some color, John and Kristina would guide me in the right direction.  They make a great team.  The salon is so nice inside, I hung out there for a while in the lounge area before I had to leave.  Enjoyed a wonderful coffee.  The attention to detail in the decor, fixtures and overall aesthetic was more than I could ask for.  You can really feel the personal style and passion that John and Kristina put into the whole experience.
