Fantastic ambience with amazing customer service. Was very surprised when I saw all the services offered. I live in NYC six months out of the year and pay anywhere between $350.00 - $400.00 for bleach, toner, shave, and haircut. Honestly, was more impressive with my service at onyx for about half the price. If your looking for a one stop shop that you can actually reply on this is the place.

As always the atmosphere is so inviting and comforting when you come in. You are greeted by sincerely happy people. They work together to make sure each haircut and coloring is working for their clients. I love to see them consult with one another on clients. I listen to terrific music in a very clean and safe environment while Kate takes away my gray, Gives me a cut that suits the natural waves and curls of my hair, and when I reluctantly leave because who wants to leave a fun place? I have a great smile on my face and my confidence has been strengthened with a terrific look that I leave with each time. Never fails. Love you all!!
