In my opinion Rodolfo Valentin is the best salon on Long Island. It is the best in all hair services including hair color for which they are the winners of the top hair colorists award, the best hair extensions for which they are the winners of the best hair extension salons award, great haircuts, great hair styles, the salon floor is probably the most beautiful that cannot be compare to none, not even in New York City or Los Angeles. The spa is state-of-the-art with unique services. Customers of this salon and spa, we all known that Rodolfo Valentin does not need more publicity, he is worldwide famous hair stylist, but It is truly confusing why this site Best of L.I. never mention the Long Island Beauty Center, another magnificent design of Rodolfo Valentin.

“SALON MAYNE” All I can say is WOW!!! What a beautiful hair salon. When I entered this cute house I was greeted with a big smile by the owner Wayne. It was the first time for me that I felt so relaxed and welcomed into a salon. The feeling you get while your getting your hair done is warming. Wayne did my hair color and fixed my problem with my hair turning orange. I didn’t even need to explain what I didn’t like he saw the problem right away which made me feel that I was in good hands from the start. The shampoo chairs are the best I have ever sat in and the shampoo was the best I ever had thanks to Angela. I was then introduced to Michelle the other owner. I explained to her my problems I was having with my hair and she gave me the best hair cut and style. Finally someone that listens to the client. Michelle has her blow dryers come right out from the ceiling something I have never seen before. They spared no expense on creating a beautiful salon for their clients. From the coffee bar having every type of coffee to the bagles and treats to eat. The furniture having granite counter tops to the hardwood floors I felt at home. I was so impressed from start to finish that’s why I am witting this about Salon Mayne. A+++..

My favorite is the Long Island Beauty Center. It is a huge salon but still very friendly and they are not providing services like a factory. I was before to another salon in the north shore in Manhasset where I had to make a line to wait for my hair wash! In the Long Island beauty center I got service since the second I stepped in. A big smile waiting for me at their front desk from a guy of name Dennis, a great hair color by Maritza and I promised next time I will get their fabulous hair extensions. I could not believe my eyes when watching a lot of women coming in with little hair and leaving like ready for the red carpet. I Decidedly praise this salon spa.

I was yesterday at the salon winner of the #1 salon Long Island award in Cedarhurst, I must say that I got the feeling of being in the top New York City salon but at Long Island prices. I paid 65 dollars for a fabulous hair color, 55 dollars for a great haircut and 45 for the shampoo and blow-dry, ahhh, the shampoo includes a few minutes of a delicious scalp massage without additional charge. They take their time to attend you and they don’t rush at all the services. They also served me a cup of tea with cookies at the luxurious station. The place is immaculate clean and the lady’s rooms are well pointed with real soft individual towels and music. It was a big pleasure to spend time here; I truly did not want to leave! The salon is huge, spacious, luxurious, clean, great customer service, smiling faces plus highly experienced professionals, what else we can ask at standard prices? While in the salon floor I saw a lot of people going up to the spa floor in the elevator, and others living the spa exclaiming how wonderful experience. Next time I will go to their spa floor to get the most services I can. Thanks for giving to Long Islanders such a beautiful place!
