She's also very talented, and transformed my long, dull, damaged mess into a sleek, healthy, ready-for-fall style. Additionally, our hair washer/masseuse was amazing. The complimentary massages are divine and such a nice, unexpected touch. I felt like everything I wanted was taken care of, and I will be a client for years to come!”

He listens and gives you exactly what you are looking for, but most of all he cares about his work. He asks for my opinion and is there anything he could do different to satisfy me.Overall great experience, I will be going back for future haircuts.”

Her haircut is sooo good that I don't feel any awkward stage, which usually makes me chop it off again. Great colorist as well. Love Gemette Hair Studio and highly recommend it.”

“My first experience at Gemmette was wonderful. The ambiance of the salon is chic, warm and charming. Jeff and his staff attended to details I have never before experienced in either Manhattan or Staten Island, such as putting plastic liners over the arms of my glasses so that I could read while awaiting my hair color to set. For the first time in a long time I didn't geta "shower" while having a shampoo and best of all I didn't have to leave the salon with a halo ofdye on the skin around my scalp and/or neck. Their attention to detail was was most appreciated. Toping off these attributes was a great haircut. Kudos to Jeff and his staff for a job very well done!”

“I found this salon from the Internet and it has a good review so I decided to try, beside the salon itself right next to jcc where my daughter goes for her summer gymnastic, so it perfect time while I wait my daughter to finish up her class. My experience is amazing. They offer 3 types of service after shampooing scalp treatment, neck and shoulder massage, and deep conditioning(I'm nit sure the last part is right i short if forgot) which I've never found in other salon. And my stylist Jessica is amazing. She really take her time toile sure that the cut is perfect and very detail, and the result is amazing. I love it! And I've received a lot of compliment for my hair. I'm definitely will go back for Jessica. I'm highly recommend this place for new customer who's looking for great salon.”

“Gemmette Hair Studio delivers a salon experience that is second to none. Upon walking into the salon you are greeted by friendly and attentive staff that go out of their way to make you as comfortable as possible. Enjoy a cup of coffee, tea, or even a glass of wine while you wait to see your stylist. Let the pampering begin! Recieve a complementary massage as your hair is washed beneath a flower-strewn canopy. And if you're feeling extra indulgent you can choose a deep conditioning treatment from their menu, which has something to offer people with all hair types. I have been a client of owner Jeff Gemmette's for nearly ten years and I have yet to be disappointed! Jeff as well as his other expertly trained stylists carefully listen to what it is that you want, rather than some other scissor-happy hairdressers you might have encountered in the past. In addition to the talented stylists, all of the hair products that they use are absolutely amazing. I cannot end this review without commenting on how beautifully designed the salon is. If you are looking for an exceptional hair stylist and unparalleled customer service, make your next appointment at Gemmette Hair Studio- it's worth it!”

“Jessica is a star what a terrific hairdresser. It was my first time at the salon. I was nervous the staff was exceptionally friendly.

“I had a wonderful time at the salon. The staff is courteous, attentive and super professional. The products are amazing and I never feel like they are pushing me to buy anything (which is very much appreciated) Jeff was...what can I say? The man is a genious!!! Love, love , love him!”

“I have been going to Gemmette for about 8 months now. I originally went because I purchased a Groupon. I had never heard of it before. It's was the best Groupon I have ever purchased. Gemmette is definitely the best hair salon I have ever been to. I always go to mariah who, in my eyes,is the best. I constantly get compliments on my hair, from the cut to the coloring. My daughter just had her prom and Tom did her hair and Mariah did her makeup. She was being asked all night, "who did your hair and makeup?" She looked beautiful!! I highly recommend this salon and especially Mariah and Tom. They are the only two I had the pleasure of dealing with,but I am sure that they are all excellent.”

“This was my second visit to Gemmette and I couldn't be happier. Jessica does extraordinary work, and I have been complimented by many people, including other stylists from other shops! I am thrilled to have finally found her, after many, many years of trying various shops and stylists and not being happy. She explains everything she is about to do, and recommends what she thinks would be best, and most of all listens to what I want. She is a gem!”

— Linda A 05/11/2013 img img img img img

“This was my first time to the salon and I was very impressed. I liked everything about it from the atmosphere to the friendliness of the front desk staff. I love the cut, have never gotten more compliments on a hairstyle before. What I did not enjoy was the stylist herself. She asked questions about what I wanted before I was washed but while she was cutting my hair she just seemed generally disinterested. No attempts to make conversation, when I tried I got one word answers. It was akward the whole time. I would go back again but I would ask for a different stylist.”
