Before I even left the Salon , a woman took my picture and told me she loved my haircut . What a great place and such talented stylists. I can't wait to go back. Thank you Mark and staff. Your salon is amazing

Amazing amazing amazing. I was stopped in the street and asked ....who cut my hair? Within 30 minutes of leaving the salon. This is New York City's best kept secret. Run... don't walk to this salon . They are the absolute best. Once the word gets out, It will be hard to get an appointment. I drove in from the suburbs and it was well worth the trip. Thank you Mark for this wonderful day. When you look good you feel good.

Those bus drivers know a great cut when they see one ??

You must go to Mark De Alwis Salon!!!
If you are looking for a best in class experience, this is the place to go. I have been to Mark De Alwis Salon for cut, color, highlights and blowouts and I am always blown away with the results. You will leave the salon literally feeling a million dollars.
Bottom line... You will not find a better experience in NYC and once… You must go to Mark De Alwis Salon!!!

If I could give 10 stars I would! My son loves this place so much we came from Las Vegas to get a new style. Thanks Alex and Jeff, you both are amazing.

I have been using this hair dressing salon for maybe 25 years and I think it one of the best in the city. It is reasonably priced, and the staff has all been there for years.....doing a really terrific job, cutting, washing and coloring ...MoreI have been using this hair dressing salon for maybe 25 years and I think it one of the best in the city.

I haven't been to New York for over 10 years and didn't know where to go get my hair done. Found this gem on Yelp and was an amazing experience. Not only is the price reasonable for Manhattan but Ada was wonderful. Everyone was friendly and very willing to help. Can't say enough good things.

Four generations of women in my family have been going to Mark De Alwis salon - since they opened and I totally trust them. I have never had a cut that I did not like. I like the environment and the professional care we all receive.

Mark at Mark Dealwis Salon  is a pro.  It is the best deal in the city for great highlights. Everyone at the Salon is very professional and kind.   The Salon is  very clean and well run. I found all staff to be very helpful and professional to the max. This place is gem. And I have frequented some of the top salons in the city.

I would  give this salon 10 stars if I could. I travel 1 hour by car and almost 2 hours by train to get there, and that's just one way. No one does hair like the stylists at this place, and the staff has been nothing but polite, friendly, and courteous. I've tried at least 20 local places over he years, maybe even more. But no one does highlights and cuts hair like the stylists I see there. And no, I'm not going to give their names, because I will never be able to get an appt there  again if I do.

Mark and his team are amazing! And my hair looks marvelous thanks to Mark!

I have never had an unsatisfactory haircut with Monique. On the contrary in times of crisis when I only have time to run a comb through my hair, I have been grateful that I don't have to "fuss".

Joan B -
Mark as always did a wonderful job.

Debbie M -
Love everything about my experience.

Loree S -

Cari H -
Always a pleasure to visit VFV Salon. Great technique by stylists and colorists. You always feel welcomed.

I've had people stop me on the street, and say, "you have a great haircut. Where'd you get it?" Since Vladimir has been cutting my hair for more than 20 years, I never hesitate to send people to him.

Joy C -
**Brilliant..style..stylists..the whole experience
I'm a loyal fan!
**As always, everything is magnificent. appointments, careful consideration, super precision styling and color. Monique, Rina, and Mark.

I'm a "born-again blonde" thanks to y'all.

couldn't be better.

Mark is the only person I can trust with my hair. Everyone at my office compliments my color and cuts after my appointment. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to friends and family.

Paula M -
Best haircut ever!!! Amazing blowout made it all the more incredible. Another patron commented on how "thick" my hair was. It isn't. It's very, very fine! I suggested she feel my hair as proof, which she did. I said it was all Mark's cut and blowout!
Thank you Mark!

I've been a client here for over 30 years and have sent many friends who have been as happy as I have been. Unlike other salons, you're not kept waiting, the stylists are all excellent and the experience is soothing, not frenetic, and you walk out looking great.

Theresa was GREAT, as was my haircut. Even though it was just a trim, she was careful to make sure I got what I wanted; she took her time cutting; and she dried my hair skillfully. It actually looked better than it has in years!!!
Will be back soon!!

Professional and highly competent service. Staff went out of their way to accommodate a last minute request for an appointment. Haircut was exactly what I requested, could not have asked for better service.
