"I'm so happy to have been at The Bowery Salon and Beauty Bar today! Not only did I get an amazing cut and color and feel absolutely fabulous, not to mention fierce, but I had the pleasure of witnessing a transformation. An older woman came in absolutely fed up with her hair, no appointment, just couldn't stand it one more minute. They fit her in and by the time she left she was taught how to recreate the easy to do style they gave her, which put a smile on her face like when you were in high school and your crush said "hi" as they walked by. I leave this haven to face the dog eat dog business world with the attitude and style to make it my bitch!"
"I have never left less than happily satisfied! I just sit in the chair, and Erica works her magic. Also a no drama salon, which is nice. Everyone there is lovely, inside and out! If you don't go here, you're wrong."
"I have been going to Erica to style my hair for the past 5 years. She is the only hair stylist that has cut my hair the way I like it, and truly listens to what the customer wants in their hairstyle. One of the things I love most about her is she will be honest in what your hair and style will work best for you. She is also sweet, funny and caring which makes getting your hair cut by her that much better! One story about Erica that makes me love her so much is that after my mom was sick with Hodgkins Lymphoma for the second time I told her what a struggle she had with styling her hair as it grew back. No stylist gave her what she wanted. Erica made it her mission to let my mom love her hair again. Now my mom and I come to The Bowery together to see Erica. Melissa is awesome too! She is hysterical and does a beautiful job with all her clients. I am getting married next May and I can't wait to have all my girls and I get dolled up for the wedding by my girls at The Bowery, Erica and Melissa! The atmosphere at the Bowery is fantastic. As soon as you walk in you feel like a part of The Bowery family. There is no uptight receptionist, or uppity stylists and clients. Everyone is having coffee and conversations together. It's awesome and so welcoming. I always look forward to our mother daughter hair appointments where we get to spend the better half of our Saturday mornings with Melissa and Erica!"
"Melissa is amazing at what she does. I trust her with basically every decision when it comes to my hair and she's never steered me wrong. She is the only one I will let touch my hair now. She and Erica are amazing ladies who have an amazing salon! Melissa is also great with my son who is 15 months old. She's already cut his hair twice and is so patient and thorough. I'd recommend her to my family and friends without a second thought."
"Melissa has been my stylist for about 3 years now, I started seeing her at the salon she used to work at and followed her when she & Erica opened The Bowery- Melissa has become one of my favorite humans and it is an absolute joy to see her. We've dyed my hair purple, red, blonde, pink... chopped 7 inches off of it... I don't ever want anyone else to touch my hair, except MAYBE Erica. She is always very helpful and honest in helping me decide what to do and what will work best for my hair. Very knowledgeable and genuine. The Bowery itself is a lovely, cozy space that is very clean & beautifully decorated. Highly recommend the space and the stylists!"
"When I moved from NYC to Albany, I tested out multiple salons and hair dressers before I found Melissa. I met Melissa at a friends birthday party and have been seeing her for three years now. I have always been so picky about my hair! Melissa is so talented and she takes any photo you have for hair inspiration and tells you her honest opinion and she adapts the color and cut to her client. For anyone looking to try out a new salon please consider going to the Bowery! You won't be disappointed"
