As of lately, people have been flooding my emails with questions about my favorite places in the city. I absolutely LOVE getting email from you all and answering these questions for you, whether you have lived in the city all your life, or are only visiting for the weekend!
The one problem was that I had not yet found a GREAT salon that I LOVE in the city to recommend to you all (After all, a girls gotta have great hair, right?). So this pretty much told the tale that my quest to find a great salon needed to begin! I’m sure when you watch TV at all the beautiful people, NYC looks like the land of amazing hair salons, and that’s what I thought, too! But in the past, I’d had some bad experiences that varied from bad haircuts to stylists recommending treatments I KNEW that I didn’t need for my ultra thin hair. What’s a Mama to do? FINALLY I have that answer for you!
A Little History about TwoDo Salon
With 25 years of experience, great attention to detail, and loyal clientele following, the salon was opened in 1994 by Megan Gordon, Master Hair Colorist. This upscale, Upper West Side salon provides wonderful salon services through a talented team of colorists, stylists, educators, and makeup artists. They truly have a full staff that is able and ready to serve any beauty need that you might have and are beyond accommodating of their clients needs!
Walking into TwoDo salon instantly pushed all those “salon anxieties” aside and I can honestly say that I left knowing what a real salon experience was all about! I felt like I was treated like a queen from the second I walked in the door, up until I walked out of it. These are those treasured moments that a Mama needs in her life!
My experience started with a consultation from my stylist James, who gave me a much needed haircut that is beautiful and easy to style with my on-the-go lifestyle. Then, I met with Krista, my color specialist who proved to have a true understanding of what I wanted from my color and how manageable it needed to be.
Here is a before and after of my wonderful new “look!”
Bonus: The husband of salon owner Megan Gordon, Kevin Gordon, operates a fantastic photography studio upstairs from TwoDo that allows salon patrons to seamlessly have amazing headshots taken right after their hair has been perfected! I had the wonderful opportunity to gets some shots taken, one of which you can see above in my after photo, an “after” that was sorely needed!
In conclusion, TwoDo salon on the Upper West Side certainly gets my stamp of approval! The wonderful team there goes above and beyond to make sure that their customers walk away happy. They truly know how important having great hair makes us Mamas feel!
