Steven gave me the best haircut I've had in at least 10 years. I received lots of compliments and keep going back to him. He has a very good sense of what will work for your particular hair color and texture and takes his time to ensure you are satisfied with the result. As a bonus, he is friendly and a fun conversationalist with lots of artistic interests. Highly recommend this salon!
Love Steve, love his results for my cut
I moved to NO four years ago but refused to give up my stylist in NYC whom I had been going to for almost 20 years. Trying to juggle trips back to NY with getting haircuts proved to be way too stressful so I went on a hunt for a new stylist/colorist. Got lots of tips, tried four sylists and results ranged from so-so to disastrous. I found Steve in Citysearch and took a chance. I thought I would have to go through a long process with him to explain what I wanted but he just took over and knew exactly what I needed. I recommend him without reservation. I'm so happy not to worry about my travel schedule and am able to get the service I want without leaving my new home!
Steven Sobel Salon. I love love love Steven. I've been there twice, and both times I have gotten amazing cuts. I try to take his advice aka change part/ length, and he is always so right. I wait almost a year if I'm not in town to get a Steven cut, and he is such a genuinely nice person to boot. I always leave feeling absolutely beautiful. If you ever need a pick me up , or feel like you might need a different look, go here!
Steven's Eye For Color.
I agree with NOLAmimi. As a previously-natural redhead, I know how difficult it is to get this color right. For years I've searched for the right person to do just that. After Hurricane Katrina, I had to start over and was very nervous about making the right choice. Not only did Steven convince me to change the brand of color I use, he gave me a new cut.
It's all good! I get compliments daily. The color looks as natural as any redhead you've ever seen. Plus, I love that he keeps you on your toes and suggests updates periodically so the look doesn't become stale. He's very talented as proven by his years in business and many repeat clients. Plus, Reena can style hair like nobody's business....she's great!
23 years later, and he's still making me feel pretty. The year is 1988, I am 14 years old, and I am going to an 8 O'clocks dance. I have a pretty pink dress and need a nice up-do to finish my look. Somehow, Steven made me look and feel beautiful. He continued to do so through every high school, college, grad school and pre-wife and Mama stage of my life. There are many reasons you go see Steven. He is unbelievable at his craft. He is professional, and makes you feel like you are his only client while you are in his chair. I moved to California and had not been home in 8 years. I came home this past Mardi Gras. No lie, the first place I went after landing in NO, was to the Steven Sobel Salon of course! I haven't felt so pretty in a long time. So me and my hair have been adoring him for 23 years....if that's not a positive review, I don't know what is. Miss you Steven....you can always move to North Carolina just for me!
Comment on RUDE OWNER AND WIFE review. I tried to write this in the comment section of the previous review, but it was too lengthy - this was hard to write for me too since I have witnessed several incidents where Monique especially has been rude..... In saying that, THIS IS THE WORKINGS OF TWO VERY DISGRUNTLED EX-EMPLOYEES, Monique and Kristen. It is obvious this woman has no idea the dynamics of this salon. She unfortunately witnessed a rude episode yet again caused by Monique that in the end got these girls fired for good. Steven will continue to be at the top of his field and has deservedly won any kudos he gets (we don't pay for advertising). He has been business for over 30 YEARS - these girls are 22 - need I say more.If they wish to make it in this business, they need to respect their employers. I worry for whomever takes them on next....They are not as good as they think they are. VERY COCKY, RUDE GIRLS
Monique is amazing!. After being in New Orleans for 3 years, I decided that it was time to find a hair salon here, rather than waiting to go back to my hometown for hair appointments. In the fall of 2009 I read an article about the Steven Sobel Salon and decided to make an appointment with Monique, and am SO glad that I found her!Monique cuts and colors my hair, and I can honestly say that my hair has never been cut and colored so well. Not only is she a great hair stylist, but an equally awesome person to be able to talk to while doing your hair. The salon is always nice to walk into and everyoen is bright and cheerful.
After relocating from Washington DC this past summer, I was convinced that I'd have to return there every six weeks to update my fabulous (albeit faux) rouge tresses. I was convinced that no-one could match, nor out do my color. That was before I met Steven and his amazingly talented staff!!!
Not only was my color updated to better suit my golden glow from the summer sun, but Steven updated my cut to be more fun...even adding bangs! I also updated my brows by adding tint to better match my new look--WOW--what a difference brow tinting can make!
Redheads unite and rejoice--this ginger highly recommends Steven Sobel Salon!!!
Best Salon in NOLA!.
Shortly after I first moved to New Orleans in August of 2009, I realized that I could no longer justify the brown root growth from my blonde hair as being stylish, so I rushed to make an appointment anywhere I could get in. The result was disastrous! I had horizontal stripes across the side of my head from the foil lines. After rushing home and spending hours at the computer reading review after review of the various salons in New Orleans where I could get an immediate correction, it was made clear to me that Steven Sobel across the board had the best reviews. I made an appointment for the following day. When later I mentioned the appointment to a friend who had lived in New Orleans for a few years she said, "I don't know a fake blonde who looks like a natural blonde that doesn't go to Steven Sobel," and I knew I had made the right decision.
Steven corrected my color PERFECTLY and I've been going back since. The whole staff is so friendly and fun to be around and their work is impeccable. I've had my hair done by both Steven and Eric (when I make appointments I just ask for whoever is available to fit my tight schedule because I trust them all!) and would highly recommend them both to anyone needing a cut or color.
The last time I went in, there was a promotion going on for a discount that I was unaware of, but Steven offered it to me anyway! Even if my loyalty to this salon were not already established, that would have certainly sealed the deal!
Great salon, great people, great products, great everything!
I have lived in several major cities throughout my twenties and have never been inspired by the so-called best hairstylists in each city (such as Chicago). I have very curly hair and am, unfortunately, risk-adverse. In other words, I have had the same long, layered (aka BORING) haircut for most of my life.
This all changed after my visit to Steven Sobel Salon! I found out about him through the article in Elle magazine recently, so I thought I'd take a chance. I walked into his salon, which was completely unassuming, and asked him to do something different with my long, boring curly hair. I hated being one of those girls who wanted something different but didn't have anything in particular in mind, but I was hoping for a miracle. And a miracle is what I got.
Steven was very patient and talked through my likes and dislikes until he had an excellent suggestion on a new style that played up my curls. I was scared by the change at first, especially when I saw him cut off nearly 9 inches of my hair...but I quickly came to love the new look. And everyone, including my husband, loves it too!
So, thanks to Steven, I have a sexy new look (and have even started to branch out a little more with my fashion). He is a wonderfully talented stylist, and I highly recommend that you visit him. I convinced my sister, who lives in Florida, to set up an appointment with him the next time she's in town.
