Stylist: Jeffrey D. Boyes

Jeff is not here anymore , now at Ruby6, LES.What can I say, the guy is amazing. I never had a bad cut,he is super talented and a very good listener. I could tell him a 10 min spiel about my hair and what I want and I never got attitude. He cut my 3 sisters hair , and my mom's, we all have different curl types and we all were happy. And terrific with color too! My mom is super picky - and loved what he did. 4a/bs? no fear.

Stylist: Tori

Amazing work. Tori was so wonderful to work with and it was easy to come up with the right cut for my curls. I look great and immediately felt confident and attractive. Just lovely.

This was not my first curly haircut, but this was the first time I was in love with my hair after leaving the salon. Not only did Jeff do an amazing job with the style, but he also taught me a lot about hair care. He didn't try to sell any products, just told me about what ingredients to avoid and how to properly style my hair. For the first time ever, I am optimistic about my hair! Thank you, Jeff!

I've been going to Jeff for 3 years now, and I completely trust him with my hair. A few months ago, I took the plunge and did a short curly pixie cut, and he still hasn't steered me wrong. He's the best!

Stylist: Brittany and Maria =)

I am so ashamed that it took me a year to submit this review for this wonderful salon!!!!!! I went to self salon for my first curly hair cut. I was very nervous!!! Brittany was interning there when I went in Jan, and she had the opportunity to cut my 3c hair. And she did an amazing job, it being her first time and all!!!!! She was used the Deva Curl method, which is a no poo method. Then she deep conditioned it and applied gel to my already wet hair. She dried it with a diffuser, picked up those scissors, and delicately snipped one curl at a time. Maria (who was pregnant at the time) watched her cut, and gave her tips. They were both soooooo amazing. I am looking forward to my next hair cut there =)

He has alot of knowledge about curly hair in all different textures and treats his customers very well. He also takes the time to help you understand your texture of hair and how to care for it. His haircuts leave you looking fierce once he's done with you.

Stylist: Maria

I love, love, love Self Salon!!! The customer service is excellent, everyone is so nice. Maria, who's the owner is such a sweetheart and styled my hair to look amazing for my son's wedding day. A week before at another Brooklyn salon, my hair was made to look horrible with a color job that was a nightmare. My poor hair looked fried after the damage was done. He didn't even apologize and I was charged almost 400.00. So grateful to Maria who did an amazing job with my hair, She made my hair look so healthy and beautiful. I received compliments on my hair and makeup all evening. Danielle who is also a love worked her magic and did an incredible job on doing my makeup for the special day. It was beautifully done and people raved how beautiful I looked. My son upon seeing me had a huge smile on his face and said I looked beautiful. Priceless. So grateful to Self Salon for making this mom extremely happy and beautiful. I will be going back to Self Salon for all my hair and makeup. Love them!!

Just went here recently for a cut and I must say Jeff did an amazing job. He was very patient and explained everything I needed to know about my hair. What I really liked about him was he knew much about the curly texture of hair on women of color. I learned so much from him and will be seeing him again on my next haircut.

I Just got a great cut done on my 3c/4a hair by Jeff!!! He is amazing. I have looked for a curly stylist for so long and just couldn't wrap my head around $150-300 that most curl friendly salons charge (Devachan and Miss Jessie). Jeff from self salon is a blessing. He is trained in the Devachan method of cutting hair dry and showed me great styling tips that same time and energy. My cut was only 75 bucks. And new customers can get 15% off the first visit by printing the coupon from their website. This man is definitely a diamond in the rough so check him out! Tell him Alexis sent you ;-)

Stylist: Jeffrey (cut) & Danielle (color)

Awesome place, great staff and outstanding attentive service. Jeffrey has the cool ability to explain everything in full detail including the cut and care for curly hair. I thought I knew a lot about embracing my curls but Jeffrey opened my eyes even wider. He took me through the steps while cutting my hair and also while washing it and he even used curly hair products. He is truly amazing not only as an excellent curly stylist but as a person. He is a blessed addition to my life. Danielle listened to my coloring issues and without a doubt knew what I not only needed but want I wanted. You will be taken care of at this salon!

Jeffrey is an amazing curly hair stylist. Having tried a few other salons that specialize in the curly hair cut, Jeffrey has been by far my favorite. His cut came out amazing and I can even recreate the look at home which is a first for me. He is very patient in explaining how he is styling your hair so you can do it at home. Best of all, I only have to use one product in my hair to get beautiful curls!!! No more leave-in conditioners, serums, and creams for me. My hair feels and looks healthier and curlier!

My friend who has extremely curly hair came out of town for a wedding and needed a style. I called my salon, Self Salon, to see if they could recommend someone for curly hair. Turns out they'd just hired Jeffrey, a curly-hair expert who's Devachon-certified and used to be with Beehive. Had no idea what that mean, but my friend was ecstatic. She looked absolutely beautiful after Jeffrey was done with her! I'd totally recommend him for curly-hair textures. Plus, he's such a nice guy! Love him!

I recently had a friend with very curly hair come in town for a wedding. I called my salon, Self Salon, to see if they specialized in curly hair. They told me that they'd just hired Jeffrey, a Devachan - certified, curly haired expert. I'm not that knowledgeable about curly hair, but my friend was ecstatic. Jeffrey did an amazing job with her hair and he's so nice; she was an absolutely beautiful bridesmaid and felt so confident that there was no frizz. I've always loved Self, but wanted to share this news with any curly haired girls out there as I now know how tough it can be to do your hair.
