This is a wonderful salon with an excellent staff. Whether it's the beautiful Jennifer who greets me on the phone, or sweet Katie who gives me a gorgeous blow-out, or the extremely talented and sexy Dallas who does my stunning highlights (and has been my friend for almost twenty years - I love you ❤️❤️❤️), I always leave feeling like a million bucks. I can't wait to see the new location. More...

The are the nicest, friendliest and also professional that I have had the pleasure of meeting in a very long time. More...

Booked an appointment here for a blow-out because of the good reviews and location. I will definitely be back! The salon is spacious and well kept. My stylist, Katie, did an excellent job. Very reasonable prices for Manhattan and worth every penny. More...

My second time here to have my hair colored by Melinda. She is worth the travel from NJ to NYC. My color for the second time is perfect. I've had so many compliments. I highly recommend making an appointment with her for color. The salon itself is so nice. The staff is attentive & sweet. I look forward to my next visit. More...

I was in town for business and needed to have a manicure ASAP. I used Yelp to contact the salon and they were incredibly responsive, taking the time to accommodate my schedule.  When I walked in, the salon was beautiful and the staff was incredibly friendly.  My manicure was quick (what I needed!) and my manicurist, Lisa, was very professional. I am thrilled with my nails and with the entire experience. I will be back! More...

The sign of a good salon isn't just about how happy you are when you leave, but how welcome you feel when you first arrive.Salon SCK has the most welcoming atmosphere as well as the kindest and most attentive staff and this is because they have one of the best owners.  I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Clint and he is one of the most genuine business owners I've ever met that truly takes how his clients feel to heart.The spacious salon overlooks Broadway and I love the natural light that flows through it.  I liked how each station had ample room from the other so you didn't feel elbow-to-elbow with another client like a lot of salons in NYC.I moved from Chicago to NYC last year and I've had the same two people color and cut my hair for the last 19 years.  This was a HUGE step for me to let someone I had never met cut my hair.  Not everyone can cut curly hair!  Clint was so reassuring and paired me with a colorist and stylist that would understand my needs.I felt like I won the hair lottery when I met Dallas and Ryan.  They truly are the dream team!  Dallas listened to what I wanted to do with my highlights and saw my vision immediately.  It was the same with Ryan, and he definitely knows his way around curly hair!  I had him blow it out (I don't get to see my hair straight often) and it looked fantastic.  When I washed it a couple of days later, I was ecstatic at how beautifully the curls fell into place even without using a diffuser.  My highlights came out exactly as I wanted too!Salon SCK - Clint, Dallas, Ryan - thank you all again for such an amazing experience!  I look forward to seeing you at the end of June!!

Stylist Beau did an amazing job touching up my roots. There are no greys left which has never happened before--He is wonderfully detailed which is a great attribute for a stylist. He really took the time to consider my current color and my plans for a future bayalage and cut, even introducing me to his colleague Fiona for my haircut the following week. And, he blew dried my hair perfectly and it lasted for 3 days. I highly recommend that you see Beau. More...

Went and had my colour done with Beau, who was very friendly, thorough and collaborative. He did a great job - took his time, studying my hair to figure out where it was darker and lighter and how to apply the product. You'll be in great hands with Beau. More...

I have been going to Lai since 2007.  My brother researched the best places and people to get haircuts.  We found Lai.  I think he researched it for his wife who also is a huge fan of Lai.  Lai did my hair for my wedding in 2009.  It was beautifully done and I couldn't of been happier that day.  Throughout the years,  I still go to Lai when I can do it.  He gives an incredible cut with each hair falling perfectly in place.  Do you know how I can tell?   When I wash it, I can actually do it myself.  The salon is a little tricky to find, but it's a hidden gem and so is Lai.

Salon SCK is a beautiful space with a great vibe. The staff is very friendly and has a lot of consideration for their clients. I always feel so well taken care of and the services I receive are top notch. The stylists here must go through a very thorough training program and it reflects in their work. If you are looking for a salon with great staff, fabulous decor all in a wonderful part of town, Then I would highly recommend this salon! More...

I have very long, thick, curly hair, and they always do an amazing job with it !! Everyone there is SOO nice. Almost every time I get my hair done somewhere, someone makes a mean comment about it, which I don't think is fair because I'm just like every other girl who wants to have their hair done every once in a while lol, but no one here has ever said anything rude to me about my hair ! On the contrary, I always get compliments from them and they're all so friendly and nice ! More...

Got a mani/pedi here. The service from when you call to when you walk in the door is outstanding. They are  very friendly.  The salon is beautiful. The nail technician is not the friendliest but she was nice. She put the dryer on when my nails were done and never came back. I was overall happy with my nails but disappointed with how it ended. Checking out was a breeze and the girls at the desk were very nice. I would definitely go back. Prices were reasonable for NYC $65 for a mani/pedi. More...

Came here for a hair dye with kelly as a recommendation by my sister in law and convenient proximity to my office. I had requested no stripes soft caramel blonde balayage and showed her a pic of what i was looking for. She offered her opinions and suggestions for what would work with my jet black hair. The process took a bit of time but it was nice chatting with her about our kids. After 2.5 hrs i was really happy with the way the color came out. Im always afraid of the color looking too light or brassy but the balayage blended nicely with my black hair. Finally a color i love! Ill be back for future upkeeps. Thanks kelly!Ps - love the look of the salon! Very cozy. More...

Danny at Salon SCK is amazing. I usually go to him for a blow dry and he does a very good job. He is so down-to-earth and just pleasant to be around. I have never had a bad experience.That make-up, however, is a different story. I got make-up done here and the girl did such a poor job. It barely looked like I had anything on. I asked for natural with more color and when I saw it was so natural that it looked like nothing I asked for color, but she just didn't get it. I also asked for more around my eyes but even the liner wasn't good. I felt like she just didn't get what would work on me and did a sub-par job but charged me $100!!! It was the worst spent money. Anyway, I went to my birthday party that night and people told me after that it didn't even look like I had make-up on, in fact a few days after when they saw how I applied my own make-up so many of my friends commented that it looked much better than what I got done here. So yes I was very disappointed that I spent so much money and didn't get good make-up done. The salon itself is great and everyone is pleasant. I recommend it for hair but not make-up. More...

Yes there is a salon on nearly every corner of NYC but none is as professional with as nice a staff as SCK. I stumbled upon the salon while needing to get a blowout a few months ago. I've now gone back two times for blowouts and makeup. SCK is a first-class experience. Don't be surprised if the staff remembers your first and last name when you call to book an appointment. It will feel like you've been going there for years. And the stylists do fantastic work. Danny gave me a fabulous blowout. More...

I came to salon SCK for a event with yelp elite and I loved my styling session with Devin Toth. He took the time to helping me achieve the hair style that I wanted even though 1) I was going straight home after 2) I was sweaty AF. I can really tell that he knows his way around hair. He's one of the stylists that actually take the time to work with you through the process to make sure that you're really getting what W A N T. He has also worked his magical hands (that sounds so wrong) at many fashion events - which is PRETTY COOL. More...

Devin Toth taught me everything I know about hair :) I discovered this georgeous second floor gem in the heart of Columbus Circle about 5 years ago and never went anywhere else since. Devin is a wizard with scissors!! And not only that, he also took the time to show me how to completely transform my stubbornly lifeless fine hair into voluminous and beautiful locks. Seriously, my hair is difficult since it is easily weighted down or dried out by products that promise "volume", but... Devin. Just. Gets. It. I generally don't even come in with a particular style in mind. From the moment I sit in his chair, j absolutely trust his sense of style and more importantly he just understands his clients after the initial consultation. He even generously offered his time to show me a sampling of the countless techniques he knows that would be appropriate for my hair type, and the style I am hoping to achieve. It's been revolutionary! I now know how to work with my hair in a way I never have before, and I haven't stopped receiving compliments from colleagues, friends, and strangers in the street! Request for Devin! Kelly also put in beautiful balayage highlights to my hair that were exactly as I had requested. She is patient and kind, and again, she just gets her clients. As for the salon itself, it's simply impeccable. As other reviewers have already commented here, the front staff are so friendly and complimentary, and the space is beautifully decorated. They offer you coffee or other drinks while you are sitting in the chair, and it just makes you enjoy every minute in the salon.Thank you Salon SCK! More...

Melinda was accommodating, friendly, and professional. I came in with difficult to work with hair that has been bleached treated and damaged. i was unhappy with how the color has faded to an uninspiring beige (from silver). She listened to me and took the time to discuss what can and cannot be done, and once we reached a decision she stayed after closing time to meticulously finish the color job. I love the end result and will be coming back here for maintenance. Highly recommend. More...

I love this salon. Ryan cuts my hair which is very thick and curly and does an amazing job. He really gets curly hair, and I have had mine done at Devachan, Ouidad and other curly specialty places and he is even better. I get my highlights done by Dallas who does such a beautiful job. The salon is really convenient and a very comfortable space. More...

I've dreamily walked past the salon's beautiful 2nd-story windows in the past, which is what led me to track down the name of the salon in the first place. Experiencing the place inside was everything I dreamed it would be: great service on all levels, great atmosphere, and, most importantly, great haircut! I have long hair, so I'm pretty bad about prioritizing getting a haircut. By the time I do, it usually feels like an emergency situation where I schedule the next available time slot at any random place. In the past, I've had better and worse experiences, but never had an "OMG, I finally found my salon" moment. ...but now I have. The experience was fun and comfortable including tips on how I might style my hair for an upcoming wedding, and now I'm getting so many compliments on my perfect cut. Thank you, Danny! More...

I'm one of those people who gets stressed out about getting my hair dyed or cut, but Salon SCK makes it such a lovely experience. The atmosphere is laid back and warm, not intimidating or judge-y at all. I've been going to Dallas for full blonde highlights, and he always does an excellent job. He listens to what I'm looking for and he delivers right on the money. More...

I have been going to Danny Garrity for a little over a year now. He is the only person who I actually trust to cut my hair -- which is a shame since I now don't even live in NYC. I have thick, curly hair and I've found that it's very rare for someone to know how to cut this kind of hair properly. I have always been blown away with how Danny cuts my hair and it grows out flawlessly. He makes good recommendations and takes his time. I live in San Francisco and I got a horrible haircut that needed to be fixed. I was flying back to NYC to visit family the following week and immediately went to Danny to have it fixed. I can't say enough positive things about Danny! More...

I have been going to Salon SCK for three years now, and have such a consistently good experience every time. I see Devin for cut / styling and Heather for color.  I have long straight hair that is fine but thick, and it has the potential to be monotonous but Devin always cuts such a great shape and teaches me new styling techniques on every visit. Heather does balayage on my hair, which is more expensive than traditional foils but well worth it, as I prefer a more natural looking color that grows out well. I highly recommend spending an afternoon at Salon SCK with Devin and Heather. I leave their chair feeling like a million bucks, and the results last for months. More...

I was heading out to see my husband's fam in LI and needed to get my hair washed b/c it was  naaaasty (not in a good #nastywoman way).  I would have just showered and washed it myself, but I did not plan out my time well b/c I JUST got my lashed done the night before and you can't get them wet.  Ugh.  So I called up dreamdry but they were booked till the afternoon.  Bummer.  I googled "hair salon near me" and found this place nearby, asked if they had anything in the next 15 minutes, and they squeezed me in in half an hour.  I've never been here before but had always walked by.  This place was a party when I walked in!  It was so busy for a Saturday morning, but it was like... well-oiled machine kinda busy.  I checked in and a sweet woman checked my coat, I was introduced to Karina and asked what I wanted, and then was immediately whisked to the wash station.  Egor was quick and efficient and I got a short head massage (yay!) and then went back to Karina's station. She is AWESOME.  She asked what I was looking for and I was like... honestly I just need my hair washed and blow dried so I don't look greasy and gross seeing my man's family.  She asked if I wanted hot iron curls, and I figured, sure... why not? I saw her hair and it was straight up top and curly at the bottom and said I wanted it like hers, and that's exactly what I ended up with.  Karina was the perfect amount of talkative and efficient... the ideal kind of stylist you'd like for every visit. She did an awesome job with the curls and my hair looks great 3 days later.  I have a LOT of hair and was in and out with a wash, blow out and curl in less than an hour.  The price wasn't that much higher than dreamdry or dry bar now that they've raised the prices, and I feel like it was totally worth it. I should come to SCK more often! More...

I went to SCK mainly for touch ups and gloss. The place is easy to get to, right by the Columbus circle station. I like that it's tastefully decorated, and comfortable enough to make anyone feel at ease . But what makes this salon is that the staff is amazing. Everyone is kind and goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable, whether you're a long time client or a hair model. Melissa did my hair. She is fantastic! Talented, conscientious and attentive, she has a great disposition and very good eye for what suits her client best! More...

I am lucky to have found this sleek salon tucked away above Columbus Circle. It's upscale without the attitude. Spacious and bright. The service is impeccable, speedy, and courteous. And Melissa is the best platinum colorist in the city. She can do a perfect ice blonde (using advanced Olaplex treatment) in 2 hours less than the colorists I used to see. My color lasts and lasts and my hair stays strong and soft. I've been stopped on the subway by women asking who did my platinum! More...

Hi, I honestly don't often write reviews, but my haircut with Danny at Salon SCK on the Upper West Side, was definitely the best experience and outcome I have EVER had at a salon. I had lost the person I had been going to for years to Florida and have spent two years trying to find a replacement.  And I went EVERYWHERE.  The last haircut I got was $200.  I have short hair and as it grew out I looked like a deranged person with a terrible mullet. I think I want to grow my hair again and everyone I went to cut so many layers into my hair that there was no way to maintain the same line as my hair grew out. Danny, not only listened to me and gave me a haircut that is the very best short haircut, but it is also a haircut that will grow out perfectly.  Although, it is such a wonderful short haircut, that I might rethink growing my hair.  I cannot, absolutely cannot praise Danny and SCK Salon enough.  Thank you, Danny!

Rene Fris is one of my favorite stylists ever. He has such a flair to make you look your best. I love that he is able to transform me to be the best version of myself.I have been to almost every major salon in NYC and didn't imagine that i needed to try one more but this one is different. You have some very Professional Artists in this town but Salon SCK stands out as not only a place where they have great style but it is chic and fun . I love this salon but i almost do not want to write this review...because now the secret is out. ;-) More...

New in the area & SCK was recommended to me. I was impressed as soon as I walked in the door. I was greeted warmly, shown into a room to change into my cape and escorted to a chair to speak with the colorist Dallas & hair stylist Danny.They both took the time to really understand what I wanted. Loved their non dismissive and eager to please attitude. My color is perfect and my fine hair now has volume and is very stylish. I have paid a lot more in the past & haven't come close to my experience. It's a five star salon! Looking forward to my next visit . They also offer mani/pedi in private rooms Wish they offered eyelash extensions. More...

I love SCK! Dallas has been putting in blonde highlights in my brown hair for four years now ever since I moved to the city. I went to Dallas based upon a recommendation because my poor hair was dyed orange and white because of a horrible dye job done previously. I went to Dallas in tears and couldn't believe how well he fixed my hair (and how well he continues to do my hair). I love this salon because it's super professional and beautiful but isn't stuck-up or stuffy like so many other salons in the city. More...

I panicked about needed a trim before my upcoming wedding and booked a last minute appointment at Salon SCK because I work in the area.From booking to payment, the experience was top notch. I explained to Michelle I only wanted a trim and she worked miracles while still keeping the length. My last cut wasn't the best and it had been a while between salon visits, so she had a difficult head of hair to work with. But she made it happen.I left feeling like my hair was lighter, yet more voluminous at the same time. Michelle listened to what I had to say, took note of how I normally style my hair and transformed my dull locks into a dream look.I will definitely be back post-wedding! More...

Salon SCK is THE ONLY place I trust with my hair. I used to get my hair cut at Vidal Sassoon and moved over to SCK soon after I learned Clint opened it. I also live in Washington, DC and refuse to get my hair cut anywhere there. At SCK, Heather did balayage on my hair last weekend (after never coloring my hair before) and she did an amazing job making it look natural. Clint cut my hair, as always, and did an amazing, amazing job cutting a lob. So happy!!! More...

5 stars for Ryan Stone! The moment I walked into Salon SCK I felt comfortable. The decor is absolutely lovely. The woman washing my hair was a joy and when I was seated with Ryan I couldn't have been happier. On top of the wonderful haircut (I have long hair so it's hard to make people notice when I've gotten it cut... he passed the test with flying colors!) he was a great conversationalist. It seemed like my haircut took 5 minutes. I will most certainly be back. An amazing experience that carries on every time I look in the mirror. More...

I purchased a Gilt City voucher and they honored it right away, and it was easy to get an appointment. At first, the half head of highlights the colorist gave me were not the shade I wanted (I wanted light blonde, these were caramel brown), but I didn't notice until after my blow out. I paid, and then asked to speak with the colorist, who said she would fix them for me if I gave it a few days. I booked a follow up appointment for later in the week, but after about an hour I called Salon SCK back and expressed my frustration at having had the process done and not having my expectations met, and having to come back in a few days when I wanted to be finished then. Well, they fit me right in that day, and within 90 minutes I was back in my colorist's chair, getting highlighted, round two. The blowout was perfection, absolutely gorgeous and not a stupid blowout I can't wait to wash out (which is usually what I am given, and why I usually avoid blow outs). And the highlights are expertly done, uniform and precise. Really the best application of highlights I have ever gotten. My only gripe is that the colorist said she doesn't use a "color bump", which I understand to be like a developer, so the highlights are not as bright blonde and I usually go for. But the application really kind of makes up for it, and the highlights compliment my hair and skin tone very well. All in all, a good experience, and I would recommend. More...

I saw Danny for a cut last week and it was great! The salon is easy to get to and nice inside, and everyone was really friendly and welcoming. Danny took his time asking me about my hair, how I style it, etc., and even curled it as part of the blowout/style. It turned out really well so I'll definitely be back, especially since he said he's allowing Gilt City cut/blowout customers to see him again at the same price for their next couple of appointments.

Rene Fris is an artist. he transforms my hair each time i see him.  it's not easy to cut blond curly hair but he is able to create exactly what i have in my mind, without having to say much.  I just traveled to Ibiza and the proof is in the pudding, several compliments. He knows what he's doing, thanks Rene! More...

I am not big on writing reviews, but Salon SCK is deserving. I am pretty picky when it comes to my hair and often leave other salons unsatisfied. Ryan was a true Professional. From the welcome upon arriving, to the relaxing head massage during your wash and ending with an amazing cut and blow dry with Ryan - this place met my expectations. The owners truly know what it takes to run a great salon just look at the five star reviews here. Having only gone using a Gilt discount, I definitely plan on returning to see Ryan. He knew what he was doing when cutting this Latina's long locks and the blow dry was a perfect finish. Definitely worth the money. I also took my 11 year old and she didn't complain once because they have a gorgeous sitting area. More...

I came across SCK Salon using Yelp. I have tried several salons for a good cut without success. I have naturally curly hair and I really needed to find someone that understood how to cut curly. After reading all the reviews, it was very transparent that EVERYONE is good at this salon and I couldn't make a bad decision picking a stylist. I made an appointment with Ryan and couldn't be happier with my haircut. He understood what I wanted, and actually executed. I asked for a trim but wanted more of a "shape". My hair feels and looks so much better but without looking like length was taken off (which is what i was looking for). The salon is very chill and relax and everyone working there was so friendly. I am planning on going back to see Ryan in 6 weeks for another trim. Thanks Ryan! More...

Devin Toth for a cut and Dallas Benjamin for color is the solution to any existing hair problem!!! I have visited numerous high end salons in NYC and from my bad experience I can state that there is no one else who I keep returning to. They are great either for fixing any damage  or satisfying your urge for a transformation.They genuinely in love with what they do and just intuitively know what works best. You definitely won't get a heart attack getting a bill since the prices are very  reasonable for such a high end services they deliver!!! More...

I was looking for a salon near where i work at the American Museum of Natural History and read so many positive reviews of Salon SCK and Devon Toth in particular.  Devon cut my hair today and i so highly recommend him--he hears you, he contributes ideas, he is so professional and just a lovely human being.  it's the first hair cut i've liked for a very long time and i can't wait to go back!

Rene Fris who works at the first-rate SCK salon is the best hair stylist in New York.  He really knows how to cut hair and I have been going to him non-stop for 15 years.  I never have to be concerned about styles because Rene updates my look as need be and always does it short for the summer.  Rene has appeared on TODAY and some of the other morning TV shows.  He was featured in the Wall Street Journal too so his following continues to grow.

Devin Toth transformed my long, dimensionless, ordinary hair into a KILLER CHIC Classic Bob à la Sassoon, and Heather Lee did a beautiful single process color to my natural color (dark brown/black) and a mask to add gloss and health to my balayage-damaged locks.5 stars for Devin who is an absolutely skilled, wonderful, positive, and professional spirit. It is rare to see a Sassoon bob being done these days, but he was ON point! His expertise is unmatched. The countless layers in the back added the beautiful depth and volume of the signature graduated Vidal Sassoon bob. Devin made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole cut, and had me weigh in frequently on how I was liking the look to make sure it was just what I wanted! To see the precision with which Devin cuts and styles, was an experience in itself. He has a great eye for aesthetic details.Since I hadn't had a bob in 6 years and my hair has a natural wave, I was a bit curious for how I would manage it/look in the Sassoon bob. But it's been a week since my cut and I can tell you that it has been perfect!! I received so many compliments, head-turns, and jaw drops... from co-workers to strangers, and friends. Also, the way Devin cut my hair, it is super easy and fun to manage. All I've been doing is combing my hair after washing...Incredible, no? It has its sexy moments; it has its cute moments. It channels Amélie, Mia in Pulp Fiction, and Natalie Portman in The Professional, all at the same time--and I love this versatility!On top of the 5 stars for the incredibly stylish Tarantino-esque cut and color, 5 stars for the welcoming, accommodating, and positive staff! They made sure I was comfortable throughout my stay at Salon SCK, never had me wait too long or unnecessarily between transitions, and provided delicious complementary drinks. I shared so many smiles and laughs with the staff here, and the positive atmosphere is another reason I am definitely going back. More...

Krista colored my hair and I was so happy! I've been going to one guy for almost 10 years and every time it grew out it wasn't natural looking. It looked so natural when she colored it and my friends said it was the best they've ever seen! I'll be going back to her always. More...

Lai is amazing; I can't recommend him enough!  He gave so much care and attention to my haircut.  I've never had anyone spend so much time and be so thorough and meticulous to ensure that the lines were perfect.  He first cut my hair, then blow dried it and cut again, then flat ironed it and cut again, then sprayed it and cut again.  And, even when it was beyond perfect after I happily checked my hair from multiple angles, he made a few last cuts.  I have had many haircuts over many years, and Lai's is the best ever.  I now  understand why people stay with him for 20+ years and will travel back from afar for his haircuts.

This place made me feel super fancy! Came in for my first NYC apprentice experience ever with Megan, who was great. My hair is ridiculously straight and fine, so it can be sort of a beeyatch to cut because every little hair needs to be perfect. Really happy with my 3-inch trim, and it's got me in a summer kind of mood. I don't think I'd spend $100+ in the future to come here as a normal client, because frankly I don't prioritize my hair nearly that much. That might cut into my eating budget, which would be no good. In any case, had a great experience here and everyone I interacted with from the reception desk to the stylists were amazingly nice and professional. More...

5 stars for Ryan Stone, because there is no option to give more than that.  Ryan is truly, an amazing stylist - who is extremely passionate about his profession. I followed Ryan to SCK from his previous salon (Ted Gibson), and I plan on following him wherever he may go!  He really takes the time to listen to your needs and wants, and gives you a realistic approach on how your hair type will work with that style and advises you how to maintain that look.   When I would get haircuts in the past, I would always leave the chair disappointed - my hair never looked like a particular photo that I would show the stylist, and always hated what I left with.  With Ryan, after every haircut I have with him - there is no hesitation.  I leave looking and feeling more beautiful than when I walked in.  He gives amazing cuts, blowouts, and pays close attention to detail.  I get complements all the time, about what an amazing cut I have - even months after my hair has grown out.Onto the salon.  Front desk is attentive and courteous - no snobbishness.  There is a super-sweet gentleman who assists with your coat check.  The salon is clean, beautiful, and the other staff members are so friendly.  Totally worth the price - but the saying is true - "you get what you pay for".

I have been going to Devin Toth for several years and followed him from Ted Gibson to his new salon home at SCK. He is the best of the best. His cuts are outstanding. He's a total genius with layering. I consider my wavy hair to be rather difficult to get right, but Devin has the magic touch that I haven't been able to find elsewhere. His price ($200/cut) is the same as at Ted Gibson and truly worth it. On top of his styling skills, he's a great guy. He really cares about his clients, is fun to talk to, and is devoted to making each person is his chair look and feel their absolute best. He can't be beat.The salon is very convenient right by Columbus Circle, and I love the sleek yet comfortable setting. The atmosphere is welcoming rather than intimidating, a refreshing change from most high end salons. More...

Devin Toth is the only person I trust with my hair, so I followed him to Salon SCK as soon as I learned of his move. The salon is open, airy and unpretentious, and I was thrilled to be able to get an appt. on a Sunday. As usual I loved what Devin did with my hair, it's easy to style and very chic, I never thought I would love a shorter hairstyle this much. I look forward to many more years of great haircuts by Devin :) More...

Devin Toth is the best.  I followed him from Ted Gibson where he was Director of Education (as did most of his clients in and outside the fashion/entertainment industries).   Devin is very talented - truly gifted.  I have very thick hair and many recommended stylists have struggled with the proportions of my hair but Devin always manages to give me a cut that is modern, sexy and classic all at the same time.  Moreover he's an amazing guy - sweet, honest, funny - and without any trappings that can come with a high maintenance New York hair cut. It's always a pleasure to be in his chair and I do it as often as I can (even though I just recently moved out of state I still come back).  I also really love the new salon.  It's my favorite kind of New York place - it does everything it needs to do and is rustic and modernly beautiful but not trying too hard.  The staff is super nice and friendly.  As another reviewer said the snob factor here is zero (despite the talent being a 10).

A vibrant salon with a buzzing atmosphere! This place is so cool, not stuffy or pretentious like some upscale salons can be. I absolutely love Devon Toth and followed him here. He is a genius with hair and somehow my hair manages to grow out looking better and better every day.He introduced me to Dallas (color) and Lyndsey (eyebrows and makeup). Everyone is friendly and talented.I can't recommend this place and the staff any more... You won't be disappointed!!! More...

Just as background for this review, I am very particular about my hair and have been cut and colored by people from Fekkai, Bumble and Bumble, Jose Eber, etc. I have NEVER -- I mean NEVER -- loved my hair as much, or felt so beautiful, as I do today. I just finished a full head of highlights by Dallas and a cut by Devin. Both of them spent ample time in consultation with me, "got" my hair and what I was looking for instantly, suggested plans I was excited about, and then executed them flawlessly. And both of them are wonderful people, too, easy to talk to, good listeners, serious about their craft, and generous with their knowledge. Icing on the cake: A gorgeous, smartly-designed space, incredibly nice staff (literally every single person there was friendly and not remotely snotty, a salon first for me), and a complimentary manicure (or hair treatment) for first-time clients. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the experience, from the appointment booking all the way through paying. I will gladly be traveling from Westchester to Manhattan for my hair now. RUN, do not walk, to this gem of a salon. You will not be disappointed. THANK YOU, Salon SCK, Devin, Dallas, Melissa, Lisa, and the whole staff!!! More...

Service - amazingTalent - amazingSnob level - non existent.Found this salon through yelp, came in expecting great service based on their rating, and my expectations were exceeded.Prior to my appointment, I let the receptionist know that I had undergone chemo earlier this year.  Enough time had passed where it was safe to color my hair, but it was fragile.  I wanted to a stylist who understood color well and an early appointment (my hair was a complete mess - super short, discolored from treatment, curly, etc).  Prior to chemo, I had long beautiful blond hair.I was warmly greeted by my colorist Krista - she had been briefed on my situation and knew how to handle my hair.  We discussed my color possibilities as well as a long-term strategy, we looked at a few swatches, etc.  My hair color not only came out amazing, it was exactly what I had in mind.  I had not planned on getting a haircut - I was focused on letting it grow out.  But I have always had long hair, and had no idea how to handle short curly hair - Krista introduced me to a stylist, Devin.  Devin gave me an amazing hair consultation - he spent an hour of his time (unscheduled) showing my how to style it just right and trimmed it up a bit.  I came in a hair disaster, I walked out with a new stylish and edgy pixie.  It gave me the confidence I needed to stop wearing my wig.  Wow is all I can say.  This is beyond a 5 star salon and I will most definitely be back.

I just moved to New York a few months ago, and I have been on the hunt for a great stylist. Earlier this week, I went to a different salon for a color, and I received something drastically different from what I wanted. I found Salon SCK online and was hesitant about going to new stylist to try and fix what another stylist had done. The salon scheduled me with Dallas Benjamin, and he was more than I could have asked for. Dallas looked over the color I just received and took into consideration exactly what I wanted fixed. He took his time to make sure that everything was perfect with my color and clearly knew what he was doing. I can tell Dallas enjoys his work, and he is truly a master of color. I am so happy with the way my hair turned out, and I can finally walk around with confidence again. I will definitely be back to see Dallas for my hair needs, and I highly recommend him for color. I also got my eyebrows shaped by Lindsay who was just as fantastic. I told her I have been trying to grow my brows out, and she shaped them to look cleaner and fuller. I am very pleased with my brows and will be back to see her again soon. More...

As an update, Saturday went to see Victoria (the savior) when she kindly consulted with me before my very relaxing shampoo, I told her I needed a change, needed to go shorter (had hair at the shoulder ) she explained a few things and because I trust her so much I wasn't even paying too much attention... I left with a cut that now hits my chin and I absolutely love it ... The cut is just as perfect as Victoria is...now I look forward to getting some highlights with Kelly...such a great salon~ My Mom is now going (she is crazy about her hair) and loves her cuts with Joseph~ great day was had once again.

I have been a very loyal, always super satisfied and happy client of Devin Toth. For 4.5+ years, Devin is the ONLY stylist that has cut and styled my long, thick hair. I was living in London for the first two of those years, and I still went to see Devin in NYC for a haircut every two months, if not more.Devin Toth recently moved to Salon SCK in NYC, so of course, I followed him there even though I now live in San Francisco.  I was just in NYC for 1.5 days and I made sure to fit in a haircut and blow-out with Devin Toth at Salon SCK. It was the highlight of my trip!!! Devin is happier than ever, the precision of his haircuts are as sharp as always and his blow-outs are hands down the BEST out there!  His AMAZING haircuts always give my hair great movement and natural style even when I air dry it at home...my husband can vouch for me. Devin is a life saver!!!Salon SCK is in a beautiful, large, open and airy space and all of the staff was friendly, professional and down-to-earth. I love Devin Toth's new home at Salon SCK! Go see Devin Toth at Salon SCK at 1845 Broadway, 2nd Floor (just north of Columbus Circle), 212-265-1700. salonsck.com / devintoth.com  It will be the best decision you make for your hair and personal well-being!  You deserve it!

If you want a colorist who brings your dreams to life, make an appointment with Dallas Benjamin.Six years ago I was fed up with the colorist at my high-end salon.  I kept asking her to "Make it blonde!" but all I got were drab highlights ("They'll look brighter in the sun!" she would say.  "We can't make you any blonder").  "Why is nobody listening?" I wondered, and thought I'd give Dallas a try.  Under Dallas's care, I was transformed into the glamorous, chic, exciting blonde that I'd longed to be for years!!!  Vive la difference!!!The confidence you get from feeling your best is tangible.Dallas Benjamin is my secret weapon!

After years of salon hopping, I had my first cut with Devin Toth over 4 years ago and knew I found a stylist who I am comfortable with and trust.  Devin has been cutting my hair ever since, so of course I followed him when he moved to Salon SCK.I have been very happy with every cut Devin's given me.  I appreciate the time he takes to think about the look I'm going for and measures with precision.  Under his care, I've had long layers, bangs, and a very short bob.  I rarely have short hair because I never thought it looks good on me, but Devin gave me the first bob that I loved.  It was chic and soft.  When I wanted bangs one summer, Devin gave me advice that bangs can end up sticking to my forehead in the heat so I decided to wait on bangs.  He really considers how a hair style will work in your everyday life.  If you're looking for a hair stylist, you can also see Devin's work at devintoth.com.While my review is primarily based on Devin's work, I also enjoyed my first visit to Salon SCK.  I found the open loft-like space and lighting relaxing, and love the brick walls and arched windows.  Alison and the rest of the reception team were very welcoming and friendly.I also had my first gel manicure with Lisa.  I went with Shellac gel in a blue-gray fall color.  Lisa did a nice job in applying each coat so it wasn't too thick, or sheer and see-through.  I'm impressed with how long the manicure has lasted.They also offer makeup services, eyebrow shaping, and custom-blend makeup.  Looking forward to more visits to this salon!

Just went to SCK for my first time today, and had a fabulous experience! Everyone was so friendly and seemed happy to be there. The highlight was having my haircut by Devin Toth! After over two years of impeccable haircuts by this true perfectionist and incredibly talented stylist, I would follow Devin to any salon, and SCK is a classy and friendly one. I recommend Devin in the highest regard! He always listens to what I want, and always makes my hair look even better than I could have imagined! His cuts are so meticulous that they last longer than any other I've ever had and stay looking amazing for months! Devin is the best- anyone would be lucky to have their hair worked on by him!

I came here for the first time on Friday for a cut with Devin Toth and had an amazing experience. The salon was spacious and inviting with couches and chairs where you could relax while you waited. The receptionist made me a soy cappuccino which was completely unexpected and delicious. I had my first gel manicure here with Lisa and she was amazing. It's been 4 days and it's still like new. I also met one of the makeup artists for a brow consultation and she was really informative and great. I loved my experience here and would definitely recommend it to my friends. Also, Devin is an amazing stylist, I have been seeing him for over three years and I swear he has never given me the same haircut twice. He knows my hair better than I do and he is a delight.Thanks to the staff at SCK, I will definitely be back. More...

Devin Toth has been cutting my hair for over five years, and recently moved to Salon SCK, so of course I had to follow him there. As always, Devin is as good as it gets. His cuts are always classic and beautiful, and keep looking beautiful in the months between cuts. And he himself is such a delight - warm and friendly and always listens to what I ask for, while of course adding his own artistry to my requests. I have never left Devin's chair and not felt like I was the most beautiful version of myself possible. I can't recommend Devin highly enough. And as an added bonus to Devin's amazing service is the salon itself - it is spacious and beautiful, and somehow manages to achieve that perfect balance of feeling high-end but also friendly and comfortable. They also offer nail services, which is great for getting everything done in the same place (Lisa, my manicurist, was also lovely and friendly and did a fantastic job). More...

I've been going to Devin Toth for almost 2 years and I don't trust anyone else to cut my hair. He always gives me an AMAZING haircut, long hair, short hair, bangs, no bangs. So when I hear he moved to Salon Sck, I followed. Devin gave me the perfect haircut as usual and convinced to color my hair. He recommended Heather Lee. Allison at the front desk was very accommodating and was able to squeeze me in. I've been looking for a new colorist and I have found her at Salon Sck. Heather gave me a natural but fun ombré which I am VERY happy with. I am pleased to say I will continue to come to Salon Sck to see Devin and Heather! More...

The salon was fresh and airy - with wonderful design elements like exposed brick and beautiful arched windows. I got a great manicure before my cut which was a really nice convenience.I used to think that Devin was a hidden gem at his old salon, but I know now that other people have discovered what an amazing stylist he is and how rare his talent is even here in New York.

Got a shampoo, blowout and straightening here by April Peele today and felt like a million bucks afterwards.I was a little hesitant when coming here because I have natural afro textured hair but April was gentle and knowledgable about how to detangle and blowout my hair. She also was so friendly and easy to talk to that the time flew by and I only want her to do my hair forevermore! The salon itself is spacious (it's located on the second floor), although it was a little hard to find because the building next door is being worked on and the scaffolding obstructs the view of the salon's downstairs entrance. There is a small makeup section by the entrance and tons of stations / hairdressers spaced out in the rest of the store. There are also people who solely wash and detangle the hair before you get your hair styled.Instead of brazilian keratin they offer the pravana smoothing system, which I am contemplating whether or not would be good for my naturally textured hair. It's VERY pricey for this treatment so we shall see what I decide to do. If you just want a wash/blowout I highly recommend going and asking for April! More...

It's exquisite and Dallas is color artistry at perfection.Salon SCK is a lovely blend of lofty chicness, staff are very friendly, had a great blowout from a sweet young gal (sorry don't remember her name).

I had an emergency hair crisis. Flew in for meetings on Friday and decided to try a high end salon in Manhattan for blonde highlights. The results were disastrous. My hair ended up orangey and dry. I called SCK this am and left a message hoping they could fit me in as my flight home was a 5 pm. Not only did they call me back, they fit me in and treated me extremely well Mark fixed my color and was very patient given my depression and anxiety. Joseph then took over and cut the beyond repair hair. Although I didn't get my blonde look and ended up with shorter hair I'm very grateful to Mark and Joseph and Jasmine for saving my hair.  I will definitely come back! More...

I've been getting my haircut by Lai for probably 20 years now which in and of itself speaks volumes about Lai and his talent---he is a true artisan at his craft.  I have very fine hair which is a bit longer than shoulder length, with whispy bangs and long layers.   Lai is the only one I trust to give me a fantastic, precision haircut that always ends up giving my very fine hair the volume and body that looks best on me and flows with the natural contours of my face.  Like me, Lai is a perfectionist at his craft so it always comforts me to know that he flatirons my hair to ensure that every bit of hair has been cut with true precision.  That's just me because I am so picky.Salon SCK underwent a gorgeous renovation before their grand opening which is engulfed by red brick walls, huge windows and beautiful woodwork throughout.  The staff are all very pleasant-- you'll be greeted with a warm hello and asked if you'd like something to drink.  And be sure to say hello to Jason who will check your coat with the warmest smile this side of NY.Trust me when I tell you that you'll be so happy you found Lai as your new hairstylist and once you get your 1st haircut by him you will never want anyone else to style your hair, although I'm sure the other stylists are excellent too.  I asked Lai to please NEVER retire or move from NYC.  *Although I will admit that if Lai were to ever relocate to another state, I'd consider traveling there for my haircut.  *Call me kray-kray for writing that but we all know how a good hairstyle has a positive effect on one's psyche.  And the day I'm ready to start getting my hair colored, I know I'll be in good hands over at Salon SCK.Salon SCK is centrally located to Columbus Circle so go and show off your new look if you feel like walking a few blocks to the Time Warner Center for a quick bite over at Whole Foods and shop the fabulous boutiques or walk up the block to Rosa Mexicano for one of their infamous frozen pomegranate margaritas.Lai, if you ever end up reading this review, thank you for always giving me the perfect hairuct and for being so patient with the perfectionist in me.Cheers,Bobbi More...

I moved to NYC 2 years ago and after multiple bad haircuts in various salons I began to cut and color my hair myself. Desperation led me to start reading salon reviews online, SCK had great reviews so what did I have to lose, hair grows back right?! What a wonderful surprise! Colorist Heather did an amazing job bringing life and shine to my dull, over processed hair and April gave me one of the best haircuts I have ever had! I have thin wavy hair which is now poker straight in my new precision cut-I love it and will be a loyal customer  from now on!! More...

I have to write a review on the best colorist and haircut that I have ever had in New York City.   It is incredible to go to SCK.   It is a beautiful salon.  Everyone are very warm and friendly.  The place has a great vibe.   I was fortunate enough to have my hair cut by Karina.  It is the best hair cut that I have ever had. With long hair,  most people just chop and I leave in shock not with Karina.      She is just lovely and truly listens to me about what I wanted with my hair. Also, I had the best color and highlight that I have ever had by Gianna.  She is a very sweet and smart person and always wonderful to be around.  Her expertise in coloring is amazing. I have been to every top salon in NYC and I have never been so happy.   Her ability to find the right color and highlights just made me feel fabulous.  She did such an incredible job with my color that it lasted much longer than any other color even with roots...it still looked good! With Gianna's magic with coloring, I did not know maintaining my color could be so easy!  Thank Goodness for Gianna and Karina! More...

I have been going to Danny for my haircuts for years - ever since he was in cosmetology school. Let me tell you, he has only gotten better with time! I have fine, wavy strawberry blonde hair, so it's important for my locks to have just the right amount of layering: enough to give me body, but not too much that it flattens. Danny excels every time with his precision and skill, ensuring I have utmost volume and bounce for my long layers!  In addition, the in-house make-up artist Lynsey B. has outfitted me on more than one occasion with warm peachy shades to match my freckled skin, including creating the perfect pallet for my wedding last Spring! I love all of their mineral-based products that aren't harsh or dry out the skin, giving me a fresh, dewy look. To boot, Salon SCK has superb minimalist style and a warm, welcoming atmosphere and staff. I make sure to stop in every time I'm in the city! xo More...

I am giving this place 5 stars because it was truly a great and pleasurable experience.I had my single process (color) with Krista she is new to the salon but not new to me (I met her when she was working somewhere else and followed her here). My hair was treated the best way possible.Salon itself is located on 2 floor in a very convenient location, very modern and spacious which is unusual to the city lol. Everything was perfect.I had a blast and will be coming back. More...

I had a last minute haircut with Danny who was super easy to communicate with over text and very friendly when I arrived. He's very good at communicating what he was going to do and explaining what the products were, and also showing me how I could do everything at home. The owner came around to check the cut and do a tiny bit of instruction. I highly recommend Danny! He's very kind, skillful and I had a great morning getting to know him. :) Hope to be back soon!

Had my first hair cut at SCK yesterday and really enjoyed the experience.  The salon is such a great space, and the whole team are personable and polite.  My coat was taken immediately, and I was offered a drink as soon as I sat down (so rare!).My stylist, Thea, clearly has a lot of experience and understood what I wanted after our fun consultation.  She cut the back a little short, but on the whole she did what I wanted and the cut is very good.  The stylists branched out on their own after many years with Vidal Sassoon, and you do feel like you're in good hands.I had a talk with Heather regarding my colour and she advised to leave what I have in, and come back to her in a few weeks - so they are not up-selling or giving you bad advise.  They seem to genuinely want to do what works for you and what's best for your hair.  Recommended!

I travel hours by car, bus or plane to see Valerie for a cut.  She is always sensitive and creative leaving me with a cut that looks good on me - not everyone else.  She has unique gifts and will continue to see her whenever I can get to NYC and make it a point to plan my trips around seeing her.

You'll not only get a great hair style that fits you as a person, but you'll feel good about supporting the staff who "voted with their feet," walking away en masse from a high-end corporate run chain.  I've been with Arlene for more than 35 years.  Yes, you read that right.  35 years.  No matter where I've lived around the country, I always made sure I made time for a super haircut with Arlene.  Yes, she's THAT good!  And her haircuts are done so precisely that they grow in beautifully.  Spend the extra money - you won't regret it.

Amazing service, wonderful outcomes, a beautiful modern space... This salon cannot be beat.  I recently came in looking like a garbage monster troll, but left feeling so GLAMOROUS with my new cut and color. Clint cut my hair into a masterpiece. Heather colored my hair a gorgeous brown. The staff is impeccably friendly and helpful. Salon SCK is simply magnificent. More...

Yes, it doesn't get any better. Having followed them from Sassoon after 36 years with many different stylists & color professionals along the way, I could not be happier. My hair and I get princess-like attention with the results reflecting that attention. I am stopped regularly on the street & stores asking who does my hair. The manicure and pedicure service is also great. Josefina, who washes and prepares me & my hair for services, is a gentle, lovely lady who shows humor & concern for me always.Mark and Clint could not take better care of my hair with outstanding results. And they make me laugh..something I really need!The salon is beautiful but also comfortable, spacious and beautifully maintained...everything is clean. All the staff, assistants, receptionists make every effort to accommodate. I look forward to each visit for I have fun and know that they care. What more could one want! I highly recommend the salon, with no reservations..wish Yelp had more stars for Salon SCK has many, many stars working there for their clients! More...

They're fantastic & a welcome addition to the neighborhood.  Forget Fekkai, this place is better, fresher, & reasonably priced. I'm almost reticent to share the names of my 'people' ( but I'd be doing a disservice to NYers everywhere and I'm feeling nice today, so alright fine, I will...but I'll kick myself if I can't get appointments with them anymore after this:)  I followed Kelly here when she left VS & I must say, she is hands down the best colorist I've ever had, in my life, ever (and I've been coloring my hair since I was 13 so I've been through quite a few) - I am regularly stopped on the street & complemented on my 'beautiful color' (which is incredibly natural looking - no stepford wife blonde or Jersey Shore streaking 'situations' here).  Hair cut & styling-wise Clint is fantastic...with the personality to match. If you don't want him to be your best friend by the time you get up from the chair there's probably something wrong with you (see: therapists listings... :)  I'd also recommend Mark - had a blowout with him once before an event & it was absolutely perfect. They listen to what you want here & no one walks out the door looking like carbon copies of anything. And that goes for whether you want a 'classic / conservative cut' or a bold, cutting-edge affair. In short, this is the type of place you can walk into having no idea what you want & they'll manage to give you precisely what you didn't know you needed.Location-wise they're in an airy loft-like space right next to Columbus Circle; as an earlier commenter noted, has a nice Soho/Tribeca-esque vibe & a great view of the Park!)  Another wonderful perk - they have a MAKEUP artist (Giella) right there in the salon...which is amazing if you're headed to an event/party/wedding etc. She'll custom blend the makeup for you right then & there based on your coloring and they don't push products on you, though you'll end up wanting to take everything home with you anyways. Giella did my makeup for my wedding so needless to say, she's fantastic (as are all of the girls who work on her team - I'm blanking on their names but I think I've had my makeup done by all of them and there's no one worth voting off the island).I expect Salon SCK's name will be cropping up quite a bit in the near/extended future.  And not just on Yelp reviews!  However, this post is totally coming down though if I can't book appointments last minute anymore...but they're too good to keep it a secret.

Hey:  My first time yesterday.  I'm a part time New Yorker, right around the corner. the place is very cool, great brick and windows.  The people are friendly, happy and professional. Victoria gave me one of the best hair cuts I've ever had...she is awesome. Highly recommend her.  Also, Lynsey Bukelew does makeup...she made me a lipstick that is my perfect color.I'll be back.

Wow---A couple weeks after my major haircut, I decided it actually could use a little more va-va-voom. I felt a little presumptuous calling and asking for more--I'd already gotten a spectacular haircut! But I called, left a voicemail, and Danny called me back, and saw me the following day. The second cut, completely complimentary (obviously I tipped generously), was like perfect icing with flecks of 24k gold. Many people throw around phrases like "I couldn't be happier," but I actually could not possibly be happier with this salon, the service, the quality of my cut and style, and Danny's incredible attitude and friendliness. I'm a fan for life. More...

The staff and environment was very warm and inviting! They really listened to what I wanted with my hair and what was okay and not okay to cut off. I appreciated that before they wanted to do something different with my hair, they asked me and wanted to make sure I was comfortable with it. The staff also was very knowledgeable in what would look great with my face shape, texture of my hair, and gave their advice on great ways to style it. Overall great customer service experience and I would definitely go there again! More...

I've known Clint Wilson and Heather Lee for almost 9 years since they worked at Vidal Sassoon, and was thrilled when Clint opened his own salon. What's better, their expertise and approach to customer service have only been enhanced in the new space. Clint is an incredibly talented hair stylist and so kind and warm that I can't bear the thought of going anywhere else.  Heather has successfully guided me through a variety of shades over the years and truly cares about her clients. My hair always, always looks great.  And the new salon is so spacious, comfortable and un-salonlike, it's as though you're in someone's living room.  When you're hanging out waiting for your color to process while being served free cappuccino and reading a fashion magazine, you will feel like a queen!  You can get nails and makeup done here too. Salon SCK all the way! More...

I am a loyal follower of April, who has cut my hair (in various styles) for about 7 years  now. She has also been cutting my mother's hair (in a totally different style from mine) for about 10 years. I have long, thick hair and my mom has short, thin hair. It doesn't matter what the style, she's got it on lock. I've referred her many times and have only received many thanks in return. Anyone who gets within reach of her scissors becomes a return customer.So, naturally, when she went to Salon SCK, I followed. Besides still getting a fabulous cut, I now get the extra bonus of a beautiful salon in a super convenient location. Everyone there is very professional and friendly. I have had wonderful experiences there and referred many there as well. As long as Salon SCK is open, and April is there, so am I. More...

I swear, if I ever move, I will fly back to Salon SCK to have Melinda do my highlights.  She is that good!2011 was quite a stressful year for me and that is when the greys started to come.  At some point, everyone needs to face the reality and tackle those pesky grey hairs.  I was so nervous prior to getting highlights as I had never dyed my hair before and did not want to lose the unique strawberry blonde color that made me, me.Thank goodness I was recommended to Melinda.  She took the time then to discuss with me my hair color and everything that I loved about it.  Then she explained to me how we need to highlight my hair (just half) with two colors: a carmel-y blonde and red-ish copper.  The blending of the two from about a foot would give me my interesting hair color I was looking to keep plus, as the red faded (red always fades, she explained) it would look quite natural with my highlights and natural color.During the process (then and now), I found that Melinda talks with me and is fun to have as a stylist.  She has a sunny disposition and shares fun stories as she chats with you.  She works quickly & effectively, but most importantly (I think) precisely.  She is meticulous in how she selects each panel of hair.Honestly, I came out of there the first time looking like my hair did in high school with summer sun-kissed highlights.  It was gorgeous, VERY natural, and blended perfectly with my natural hair color.  Having gone to her now for over a year, I don't think I could ever switch to anyone else.  While Salon SCK is a bit pricy, my hair is my "crowning glory" and to me, and getting it done right to match my natural strawberry blonde color is well worth the price.  Melinda's a gem, especially if you are looking to match your unique natural hair color.

A beautiful, well run salon, with a polished aesthetic. A lot of former Vidal Sassoon hairdressers. I had my hair styled here as a hair model many times. They have an unusual blow drying technique where they poof your hair and then smooth it. More...

First and foremost I'd like to say that I manage a salon, not a hair salon - but a salon none the less.My experience at SCK was perfect. Excellent customer service which is important, however the quality of service is what's really commendable ; they are a great and much needed addition to Columbus Circle. An extra plus - the atmosphere / Decor. I highly recommend salon SCK to all. More...

This salon is one of the finest in NYC. The stylists are extremely talented with all hair types and textures, and willing to work hard to make you happy and beautiful. I have followed my stylist to this salon because I have never had a haircut this good in my life, and cant let anyone else cut my hair.The environment is elegant and chic, and has lots of natural light with window views of Columbus circle. The service is fantastic and everyone is always cheerful and helpful. 5 stars!! More...

Salon SCK is a new salon in Columbus Circle, opened by a team of stylists from a very well known, high-end salon in midtown.  My stylist from that salon tagged along, so I brought my business to SCK as well.The space is large and airy, with high ceilings and exposed brick walls - more SoHo than Midtown / UWS.  With big windows facing the park, there is a lot of light as well.  I moved my business over here because my stylist has been cutting my hair since I moved to NYC and I have been thoroughly satisfied with her work - and I still get great service at SCK.  The team that runs this place is very client-friendly they really act like they appreciate your business.  They all seem excited to be starting fresh and it really shows in their service.
