"Best haircut I've ever gotten. The only bad thing... I live all the way in Brooklyn! Can we meet half way? Honestly though, it was definitely worth the drive. Main Street Cutters was recommended by a friend who lives around there and it went well beyond my expectations. I got a cut and color from Kristen, who took her time and explained why certain colors and cuts were or were not for my skin tone or for my small face.

I think it needs to be said that I live in the Greenpoint/ Williamsburg area of Brooklyn which has nothing but the newest and trendiest of places popping up every other day. This includes 2 great hair salons within 2 blocks from me. Also, I work in the city, and have access to any of the top rated salons. Still, I choose Main Street Cutters over any of those.

Everyone there was very sweet and the experience was a pleasure. The salon is very clean and the staff made me feel very comfortable as soon as I walked in.

I highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone!"

Great job Krystal I can't wait to see what's next maybe more blonde will see! Definitely recommend !!! The salon is cute and cozy you feel right at home I'm sure any girl would love it!

"Krystal is amazing. After terrible haircuts and dye jobs at other places and always coming to Krystal to have her fix it, I have officially stopped letting anyone touch my hair but her. She does exactly what I want and usually suggests something better. I always leave with a beautiful hair cut and color. She's the best!!"

"It probably seems odd that my go-to hair salon (as someone living in NYC) would be Main Street Cutters, but I've had many a haircut in both yuppity Manhattan salons and "under the L in Bensonhurst cheap cuts" that have ended up disasterous. I don't trust anybody except for the ladies at MSC. I expecially don't trust myself.

Contrary to popular belief, until April of 2012 I was a natural blonde. My hair has so many colors in it I truly thought it would be impossible to get highlights that had that natural look. With my wedding a few weeks out, I finally gave in and went to Kristen to color my hair before my big day (an "upstate" friend had raved about her work). I had no idea what the hell was going to happen but trusted her fully. The worst that could happen is I wear a wedding wig, right?

I literally couldn't believe it when she was done. It was like she magically took my winter dull dark blonde hair and transformed it to look as though I had those highly coveted natural "August"  highlights. Anybody who has spent a summer in NYC knows what I'm talking about. The colors stayed amazing and looked great once summer came and my natural highlights came through.

Last week I bought a box of hair color because I figured I could just do it myself. "How hard could this be???"

Learned my lesson.

I now look like Streak-Master-Flex and will be going back to MSC (and swear to never use another bottle of at home hairdye) as soon as possible to fix this hot mess on my head. It is totally worth the drive to get my hurrr done right."

"We scheduled a bridal party 2 weeks before the wedding and they were simply fantastic.  The nail technicians did a great job (I would know because I have a license) and Chrissy, our hair stylist, was phenomenal.  She came to the Thayer hotel and did a beautiful job on our updos, which stayed through the ceremony and ENTIRE reception.  If I lived closer to West Point, this would definitely be my salon.  Jennifer, the bridal services booker, was very helpful and sweet, especially since the bride was overseas and we had to arrange everything via an intermediary (aka moi) and/or email."

"I live over an hour away and I plan my haircuts around when I go back to my hometown just to get a haircut at main street cutters.  Kristen is great, she can do any type of hairstyle which is why both me and my girlfriend go to her.  I recently started growing my hair out for the first time in 10 years and Kristen hooked me up with a style that I love.  Cant say enough good things about this place and the people who work there!"

"I have heard amazing things about MSC and I just had to see for myself. I went in for a haircut and let me tell I have never left a hair salon feeling over the top thrilled with everything!!! Chrissy was my hairstylist and she's the best! The staff is very friendly and the prices are VERY reasonable. I will go no where else. I'm coming back to get my ombre done."

"I have been here to see Melanie several times now for highlights and a haircut. I have had my hair professionally colored since I have been a young teenager and these are the things you need to know: 1. This is the best highlights/color I have ever had! EVER! so natural looking and complimentary to my skin. 2. Best Haircut! I bring Melanie in pictures I find on online, pinterest, etc and she lets me know what would be best with my face shape and hair type! I always leave thrilled and have NEVER received so many compliments! I ALWAYS book in advance because the Salon is very busy and it is not hard to see why! Thank you Melanie, and the other very friendly faces at Main Street Cutters! See you again, soon!"

"Couldn't imagine my life without the girls at Main St. Cutters. I depend on Kristen for my cuts, color, and blowouts. They always squeeze me in, come in early, stay late, and always Christmas Eve.  Christine and Annie are the best for waxing. The WHOLE staff feels like family! Very reasonably priced. Highly recommend them."

"I've been coming to Main Street Cutters since 2011. My stylist is Jen and I'm very happy with the services I get here. I usually do cut and color, but I have also done deep conditioning in the past. My hair is often difficult to take color and she makes sure it is done right and that I am completely happy before I walk out the door. The other girls that work here are very polite and super nice too."

"when you click 5 stars on yelp, it says "woohoo! as good as it gets". couldn't have put it any better myself. main street cutters is fantastic. they know hair and the crazy women that grow it. after hearing me complain that the only woman i let cut my hair for years was moving back to hawaii,  a good friend (with great hair) recommended this place. although it is a bit of a schlep for me, i would rather travel with a solid recommendation, that go blindly to some corner shop. anyhoo, everything about this place rocks. it's clean and comfortable. ZERO pretentiousness (which is always a huge turn off for me). kristen, who turns out to be the owner, was super sweet and patient with me as i described what i wanted and what i didn't want. she was extremely professional and gave me a cut that i'm still getting compliments on (it's been 2 weeks). i am not a big reviewer but this place made me want to take 5 minutes to tell the world (or at least yelp) how much i loooooove my hair. see you in a couple of months kristen! maybe next time we will jazz it up with some color......."
