The lady at the front desk told me it was going to be a wait when I had an appointment. She asked me to sit on a crowded bench. Given the times that was very frustrating. I took a walk and came back. I also didn’t appreciate how she spoke to me . However, the stylist (adipta) was fantastic and would recommend!
I did my organic keratin treatment, they told me about the price over the phone and then they charge me overpriced. After that I took their service . After I have done my organic keratin treatment , I don’t like their keratin . After I washed with the shampoo is so dull and no shine. I don’t recommend to anybody do their organic keratin treatment.
Fantastic place! Professional, friendly, polite and excellent service always. I love Gigi and everyone here. I have had horrible experiences with many salons and this place changed my mind. Ever since the day I walked into this place I knew I was getting exactly what I asked for and more.Gigis goes out if his way for everyone and best of all, he loves his job. Hes very artistic & creative, bubbly and has a kind heart.I will be coming back to this salon again every chance I get.Thank you so much for the wonderful service and best of all, making me feel comfortable happy and accepted.Love you guys!
I came to this place today for the first time, waited close to 40 minutes to be seen after my appointment just to be told that they couldnt do what i had made my appointment for and claimed it was something different. I then just settled for a haircut and blow out. I was immensely disappointed at the lack of professionalism and consultation and the way i was spoken to. My hair cut came out choppy and uneven and was styled nothing like the picture i had shown- nor was the hairdresser even attentive to what i wanted and just began cutting without asking any questions. I had to tell her to even out my hair and blend the cut and it still came out uneven and choppy. I wouldnt recommend this place to anyone- im extremely upset and dissatisfied.
Ive only been going to see Edita for years now! Hands made of gold. She is excellent and a very talented hair stylist. She is truly the only person I trust with my hair when it comes to cut and color. I also had her do a keratin treatment on me & my hair has been sooo easy to manage ever since & stays frizz free! Highly recommend!!!
I have been getting my hair cut at Gigi for 8 years and absolutely love this salon. Not only is it gorgeous, but every stylist I have worked with has been talented and lovely. They are taking great COVID precautions, too - I felt very comfortable there. Highly recommend!
I have long (over a foot) curly hair and have been here twice to get it washed. Each time they ask if I wanted it dried and blown out, which I decided to try both times to see if they were any good.Each time was a massive disappointment. The second and final time they attempted to blow out my hair the hairdresser said after they looked at the mess they made Im only used to.. nice hair... you know from Europe.Other than these people Ive yet to find anyone who couldnt blow my hair out flawlessly and without issue. These hairdressers should probably move their business to Sweden or something if they cannot handle curly hair. This is New York City. Why do they have a business here if they only do european hair?If I could give this place a negative 10 I would.
Ive been going to Gigis Salon for over two years now and never had a bad experience. The entire staff is very friendly and does their best to make sure you are comfortable. I used to get my hair cut and colored by Aleta until she moved out of state. She always did an amazing job. Vicky cut/styled my hair on Friday and I absolutely love it! Looks like I found my new stylist!
I’m usually not one for writing reviews but I think this is an experience others should know about before visiting this salon (if you still want to go after reading this). My review was too long for the post so I have screenshots of what I wanted to say - just do yourself a favor and go to a different salon where staff can actually communicate and not drastically overcharge you for a terrible job.
I highly recommend Gigi salon. They are a group of extremely knowledgable professionals and Id especially say thank you to my hairstylist Aleta. With her, you know youre in good hands. She was very attentive and did an amazing job with my hair, carefully listened to my ideas and went beyond my expectations! Ive never left happier.
I was very nervous at the beginning because my hair is curly and wanted to go lighter but not make it damaged. I read reviews and mike was the best one there. I really recommend him he is very caring and really listens to what you want and does it for you. Thank you mike!!!
Ive been going to Gigi Salon for a couple of years now. My sister, who also has been a long time client, recommended this salon and specifically hair stylist Kristina. Let me tell you...Kristina is the BEST! After a bad experience which pretty much resulted in fried blonde hair 😔, Kristina fixed me right up. My hair has never looked as healthy and beautiful as it does now. Expect great service and friendly staff when walking into this salon.
If i could give zero i would. the stylist was nice and made me feel comfortable. I told him i was growing out my hair and i have curly hair so its hard to grow it so to please be extra careful with the cut. He did his thing but i have never in my life had such an even cut. I am still trying to grow out his unevenness 6 months later. I went to the salon to speak to management and i demanded a refund and showed them the look. they offered to fix it but off course why would i let them touch my hair again. So they offered me half my money back. I left and did not take it at all. very disappointing place
I am very happy after meeting with Hair stylist Edita. She was extremely knowledgeable with my type of hair. I’m happy to say that I found a hairstylist I can finally trust with my hair and that I don’t need to guide her every step of the way. Great atmosphere, knowledgeable stylist, and very quiet machines. I highly recommend her.
Ive been going to Gigi for at least 8 years. They have been consistent with the quality of service. My stylist, Kristina, is great, very professional and talented. Despite moving far from Astoria, I still travel there just to get my haircut (and use it as an excuse to get some delicious food).
I stumbled across this magnificent place one day when I was in desperate need of a haircut, when I first moved to the area and couldnt go to my regular salon. Love the service and the experience. I was so relaxed, I almost fell asleep (didnt help that I was exhausted from moving). Serge cuts my hair and I absolutely love him! He knows what will look best on you and you can tell he has a lot of experience doing this. Im picky when it comes to who cuts my hair, so I was hesitant at first and only asked for a trim, but after he cut it the first time I was sold. He cut my hair so beautifully, it didnt have that blunt-just-got-a-haircut look that I hate. My boyfriend now also goes to him. Salon is gorgeous and professional looking. Hair washing is relaxing and they give you a tiny head massage. You need a appointment most days so call ahead.
I went to do my roots and my roots came out red instead of light brown.Also i have not finished paying and the hairstylist (male) told me to take off my handbag from his counter in order for him to clean.Extremely unprofessional and very poor quality.I don’t recommend it.Plus i have to correct the color in another hairdresser cause it is embarassing.
I dont get haircuts often. Through online scheduling, I lucked out with having Gigi himself. Gigi is masterful in his craft. I trusted him to completely lob off my hair and give me a new style that is low maintenance and textured. He did it with vision, effortless technique, and a delight in his eyes that made me know he was really paying attention and really loves what he does. He is the kind of artist who serves, and is kind and hospitable to every client, and a gracious and loving leader of his team. The space of the whole salon was good smelling, beautifully arranged, cozy. Since getting a haircut was really about my self care I found my experience to be spiritually rejuvenating which makes my already fantastic results even more Worthwhile. Obviously the best place in Astoria, maybe even NYC.
These guys are the best. I have been going to GiGi salon for the past 5 years and my hair has always come out how I wanted it. They are very professional and know what they are doing. Recently I had a color mishap at another salon and I knew only Gigi salon could fix it and they did. Julian took me from blonde( more like orange) to brunette with ease. They look to care for the clients hair and will not try to sell you services you don’t need. For example, I wanted keratin treatment done but Julian recommended that I wait a while longer to maintain my color first. They are usually busy so getting an appointment is highly recommended. These people really know what they are doing.
If I could give this place a zero I would. I came here for a color and did not get anywhere close to the color that I asked for. I got much lighter hair than discussed. The big issue though was the fact that when the stylist dyed my hair he absolutely killed my ends - so much so that about 3 inches had to be cut. You can still see the damage he did to my ends. During the consultation a haircut was never discussed. I understand a small trim however if the stylist didn’t think he could dye my hair without the ends getting more damaged to the point where he has to cut it (they were literally breaking) he should have advised. Oh also, it was the most I’ve ever paid for a color (and cut). I will NOT be coming back here.
Vicky did amazing job with my highlights. She is really Good..The only problem is AVEDA PRODUCTS those didnt suit me well .my hair are fried and literally breaking from every strand .I have got too mucnd split ends that I dont know how much time it will get to repair ..my hair were naturally silky and soft but now it has become dried and dead ..Really regretting ..
I went to GiGis salon for my first time on July 23rd and booked an appointment with Orinda she’s so professional and friendly i told her my brothers engagement is at night and I wanted my waves to last I was worried as I went at 10 am because I had to travel for the engagement she did my hair so efficiently and beautiful and my waves lasted from 10 am till after the event I’m Egyptian and my hair Is thick and frizzy she styled it so nice and fast and efficient can’t wait till I get any chance to go and style my hair for any event with her again thank you so much
Elda is the BEST!! Im 32 years old and have had a slew of experiences with different hair dressers over the years. Elda surpasses them all! I tend to ask for tricky hair cuts that are hard to pull off. Most (all but Elda, really) cant get it right. She is thorough and does her job to perfection. Her communication is great, she checks in with me and is willing to make changes if I want. The Aveda products she uses are also a huge plus!
Although my intentions were not to come to this specific location for hair services. However, I came to this salon for a job ad that I found through the indeed app. When I walked in I was greeted by a receptionist who had a friendly demeanor, and I explained to her that I was interested in the position for the ad I had seen through the Indeed app. She asked me if I had my resume for which I did give to her, and then she insisted that I should have a seat to wait to be seen by the manager. However, their were two specific workers that had made their presence known that made me feel as if I was not welcomed. I am a female, and I identify myself as being mixed race although I am of color. This salon specifically seems to cater to individuals who are of European decent. For which their staff members are predominantly of European decent. Furthermore, I do not recommend anyone who is of color for whom may have natural hair to inquire about any services this salon provides, due to the lack of diversitie this salon does not implement.
Love coming here, the staff is friendly and polite, Gigi is absolutely fantastic and a pleasure to be around. The atmosphere is great as well. I have been coming here for years and I have yet to ever be disappointed.Makes me feel at home being here, and I will keep coming back here until I get old. 😁😊
My hair was bleached and damage from a previous salon I went to a month prior. I told Dragan what I wanted to do with my hair and asked for his recommendations. Not only did he exceed my expectations, but he made sure that it was the color and cut that I wanted. I would highly recommend Dragan to anyone that is interested in getting your hair done at Gigi Salon & Styling Studio!
If you have curly or wavy hair Hope is the best!!!I have tried many hair stylist since the last time I got a good hair cut, it was about 10 years ago at the Beehive when it was still on Lorimer, Bean was the best but than she had babies and moved upstate. Since then I tried many different places, some better than others but yesterday was the first time in 10 years that I got really good hair cut. Hope managed to keep the length and give me great volium. Huge success.
I was very specific with multiple pics of what I wanted. What I got was the exact opposite in every aspect of the cut. The process was painful, watching helplessly as cutting off hair in a style contrary to my hair needs, short where it should been long and vice versa, prolonged drying and pulling of very dry hair. The stylist was attempting to create something unfitting and useless on a practical head. The final outcome not only brought me to tears (for all the finer qualities of my hair were completely chopped off in an unrepairable manner) that minutes later, in sheer agony, I pulled out the rusty sheers to even out the sides which protruded unnaturally.
Rude. I just left there after having my first blow out. I was told that the price is 35. Mike did my hair and he asked me if I wanted to use the brush or iron and recommended that I use the iron because my hair is straight. Assuming this was an option as he presented it as such and didn’t state an upcharge, I gullibly went with his option as I trusted his advice as a professional. I got to the counter and the price was 57 bucks. I was charged 20 dollars extra. This was my first time here and they could have informed me that they would be adding on an extra service of cost. I find it very rude and it feels like i was taken advantage of.
Have been coming Gigi s salon for couple visits, Julian was very professional and wonderful ,got done my hair done by Julian ,he did amazing job w/ my keratin treatment and i loooove it!!!Brand for kreatin treatment Lasio, i was kinda nervous in begining how Lasio brand goes ( you know rumors about keratin chemicals ) then it turned out amazing by Julian !!! you should definitely try Gigis Keratin !!!definitely will be back !
I called ahead and asked if they had Aveda Demi color. They said they did. Upon arrival, I consulted with Dragan and I showed him the color formula and type of color CLEARLY written out by my previous stylist. He said they call it toner and it would never cover my grey. I explained that the aveda Demi color did this great for my hair. He did not believe me and just kept saying that “toner” would not do this. I was unhappy with how it looked so messaged my previous stylist who said Aveda Toner and Aveda Demi color are NOT the same thing. Dragan and I also agreed on taking 1-2 inches off of my hair. I had explained that my hair has a narrow window of length that makes its curl easy to deal with. He said he would err on the side of shorter. He took at least 4 inches off. He said “it looks much healthier now because it is dry”. I hate it when stylists do this without your consent. It took me a long time to grow out my hair and I liked it for the first time in many years. Now I will have to take a long time to grow it back out. I am beyond frustrated. My hair is not damaged, just dry. There was no need to chop off this much and even if there was, get permission!!!!!!
I wanted to find a nice salon and bam, I found this. I got my hair washed, cut and straightened, they did a wonderful job. Depends which stylist you get, some ask you questions and want to know exactlly what you want, some just start cutting. Ask for a senior stylist, and as far as the receptionist, he thinks hes better than everyone, and makes you feel confused if youre asking about prices and cuts, he should get fired. make an appointment first.
I am so happy I tried out Gigis salon! I live right across the street and desperately needed to fix my hair after a terrible haircut. Gigi did ombre highlights and cut my hair and I absolutely love it! Would highly recommend GIGIs Salon if you want to get a professional cut and color!
Always good service,my hairstylist is Edita for a few years already and I will never change her neither GG salon.Everyone is great from the receptionist,assistant, hairstylist,always friendly warm greeting,any kind of drinks they offer you and great job do with your hair.The best in Astoria and queens
So I call the manager about how horrible they cut my hair and that I never paid tgat much money for a haircut but this time I wanted to be really good. I let my hair grow because I wanted a special haircut to be petfect. So he said we will fix tgat but there is nothing to fix unless you grow Hai back. By the way I look like a gangster and I had an interview coming with i didnt make ofcourse. DONT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE THEY ONLY CARE YOU A LOT BUT ITS ONLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE SOMEONE BRINGING YOU WATER LIKE I CARE .
Edita does the best Ombre, Biolage hi-lites, Cut and Brazilian Blow-out Ever! She is so patient, Ive been going to her for 10 years and love it every time. Ive had just about every color imaginable and she is always very on top of new trends so definitely ask for her whenever youre around in Astoria.
Amazing experience! I’m not too used to fancy salons but this felt like one for me. When we sat down and we were waiting we were offered drinks (water, coffee, tea, etc.) Before I was taken for my haircut my hair was washed and the shampoo left my hair glorious! The person washing my hair was also very polite and well mannered. My haircut was done by Katerina and she did an amazing job. She was super sweet and always made sure I was okay with what she was doing to my hair. Usually when I get my hair cut other salons aren’t able to cut layers well and the layers don’t blend into one another. However Katerina was able to cut layers that blended into one another very smoothly. Will definitely be coming back again!

This wonderful salon has the highest level of customer service, attention to detail and superb personalities everyone was absolutely wonderful and fabulous. Vicky cut my hair and did such a beautiful job she had amazing patience and professionalism I highly recommend this incredible establishment to anyone. Thank you for a wonderful experience for my mom and myself.
I am so happy that I found this salon. The salon I used to go to, closed permanently during COVID. I try so many salons (all with good reviews) and left disappointed. Angeliki took care of me; she was able to understand what I wanted and delivered absolutely beautiful results. Everyone in the salon was super friendly. Also, the girl that shampooed by hair was super nice and I did not leave with stains all over me. I highly recommend this salon.
Been a customer of Gigi for a few years, had multiple stylists cut my hair, and have always been pleased with the results. Very professionally run salon and rarely have to wait far beyond my scheduled appointment time.
This has been my go to hair salon for I don’t even know for how many years now , Edita is the best hairstylist u can ask for , she’s such a nice and sweet soul and always asking questions and makes sure you’re comfortable. There’s literally no one I trust with my hair other than her . I get so many compliments and I sent so many people to this salon now lol
I’ve been going to Kristina for years and She does exactly what I want every time. Always very happy with the balayage she gives me. I’m not the best about being consistent with scheduling appointments, so she knows to fade it into my natural color so it looks alright when it grows out. Photos are of two separate visits.
It’s comically rude the experience I had with Gigi Salon. I booked an appointment for 3pm today and arrived at 245pm. I was greeted pretty solemnly, but it didn’t bother me at all to be honest since I assumed they were just mega busy. I went to sit down and this is where I feel like 5 years went by. Before I knew it, it was almost 330 and no one had come up to me. At first I really thought it was busy, but I noticed there were several stylists sitting in their chairs or just chatting. NO ONE made ANY eye contact with me. It almost came off like I was purposely being ignored. Literally women who came in after me and were sitting NEXT to me were acknowledged immediately, but in the almost hour I was waiting not one single smile or acknowledgement was given my way. It was bizarre. Eventually I went up to the front desk and spoke to the super unbothered older blonde woman with the ridiculous hot pink shirt she definitely thought looked chic. I told her my name and she eventually “found” my appointment in the computer, and I could tell by her look they were in the wrong but she wasn’t going to waste any energy on explaining what actually happened. She blurted out under her breath sorry after she told me someone would come get me to wash my hair. The woman who checked me in when I arrived was no longer anywhere to be seen, so my guess is that she dropped the ball. I waited another 10-15 mins and still nothing. EVENTUALLY I saw the blonde woman literally POINT at me from afar, gesturing for the shampoo guy to get to me. He was already washing someone else’s hair so at this point it’s like, 345. All of this bummed me out and I’m an extremely easy going person. It came off more rude than it needed to be. I ended up shrugging to myself and walked right out. Moral of the story is if anyone wants to come to this place, make sure your presence is KNOWN or you’ll age 50 years waiting for literally anyone to acknowledge your existence. It’s one thing to be busy(that happens, no big deal) and your appointment being set back; but when there is NO delay and not even an explanation to what happened, it’s pretty annoying. Thank you for the waste of time, Gigi Salon! You ladies were awesome!
I got chemical burn from colouring my roots here!! Worst place ever and people are not friendly only the girl who washed my hair cared enough when I told her the dye is burning!! Everyone else kept telling me to wait!! For a professional hair salon they should have known better!! This is the worst salon ever , I have been colouring my hair for years and went to this place for the first time based on reviews! Never again
Truly happy to have tried this salon. Elda is very kind, patient, takes her time and does the work for her clients like she would do it for herself. Thank you, Elda. Will definitely return.
I did Keratin and color. But my heir was same as like previous. I was talk with them about treatment and color they only gave 30$ back . Their behave also very rude when I was talk them after one day. I don’t recommend that salon. I’ll be sue against them . They don’t have right to took all money. See what’s the different after one day
I love this salon, the staff is super attentive, the products are high quality Aveda and my stylist/colorist Eridita is simply amazing. I always leave happy and feeling great
