Makeovers offers new client specials in Hoboken

Here’s a little style update for you today. Makeovers has been happily settling in at their new location at 327 Washington Street – and wanted to let both old and new residents know about their rewards program as well as new client specials.

For one, they have a Customer Rewards program (like a frequent shopper) that enables you to get a free blowout or men’s haircut after just 10 visits. You’ll also be on the list for secret sales which only members receive. Call 201-420-1444 for more info.

Their new client specials include $35 wash-cut-blowout, $49 color touchup (w/ blowout) and $99 highlights (including 20 foils and blowout). Even if you have a regular stylist – sometimes it’s nice to explore the waters. You never know – maybe you’ll be happier?

Makeovers is the premier beauty supply store & salon in Hoboken!

12/5/2014 Update:

You have to give some businesses in Hoboken some serious props. Makeovers at 327 Washington Street is a fine example.

For one, they’ve stayed in business over 15 years in an up and down economy. This is especially noteworthy because beauty products are often considered near the top of the list of discretionary items that might get cut in bad economic situations. They’ve pulled through.

And secondly, rather than leave town when the rent more than doubles (like Ricky’s), they pulled it together and found another place to serve local residents. And with the owner, and 80% of their employees living in Hoboken, it’s nice to see them hold on and maintain presence.

That said – perhaps (and without the need of American Express telling us how to shop local), some of you Hoboken411 readers can swing by and show some support. They even have cut and color specials for new customers (like a $35 wash, cut and blowout – or a free cut and blowout with any highlight service!)

As you can see from the photo gallery below, they have an extensive selection of all the skin, hair and beauty supplies anyone might need – and I’m sure they can get you pretty much anything if they don’t have it in stock (free delivery too!)

Kudos to Makeovers for hanging in there and having faith in the local Hoboken community!

The move is complete: Makeovers has a new home

11/10/2014 update:

Congratulations to Makeovers in Hoboken for two things: Completing their move across the street – and surviving in a not-so-friendly business climate!

Their move to 327 Washington Street was done a couple weeks ago. Stay tuned for a grand re-opening celebration very soon!

Makeovers… makes a move in Hoboken to new location

7/8/2014 Update:

Makeovers has long been a “staple” of Hoboken. A beauty supply store – as well as a full-service salon. Currently located at 302 Washington Street, they’re making a big move come this fall. By September 2014, they will have moved across the street to 327 Washington Street (former home of “Greetings from Hoboken.”)

They said the reason they’re moving is mainly because the location is still viable, and with better rent and the chance to re-structure their layout. Currently, many people walking by don’t even realize they offer salon services.

The new location will prominently feature BOTH the salon and “product” easily visible from the sidewalk.

Congrats and good luck, Makeovers!

    Truley amazing work. Mel is by far the best hair stylist I’ve had. I’m always getting compliments on my hair.I highly recommend her to all. Aside from being incredibly talented, she is one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. I always look forward to my trips to the salon.

    how much does it cost to have your hair cut there?

    • scharania says:

      What they quote you initially and what you end up paying will be two different amounts. This salon has a reputation of gettingyou to agree to a certain aount initially to have work done. When the work is completed the final amount to pay is as much as double to the amount quoted and you are obligated to pay or the police will be involved.

        I had this happen to me a few years back. Thought I was paying 90 for half- head highlights, and got a bill for 180, but to be fair she ended up doing most of my head- AND it looked great. I really couldn’t argue it. You might mention it to the stylist who charged you… most of the stylists there are adults…

        They do great hair here, though. Ramon (Ramone?) is extremely talented.

        My experience w this salon has been Great!in response 2 the earlier comment… As far the price goes, the girl @ the front desk couldn’t give me a quote; only the stylist. I was also getting highlights & my stylist, Mel, was the person who sat me down 2 discuss the process she’d recommend to reach my desired outcome. She made it very clear that the final $ would depend on the amount of highlights I’d need along w any toners added (I have a lot of hair which means there’s more work & time needed).That 1st visit I needed a full head of highlights so I payed a bit more but Mel explained that I wouldn’t need as many foils done the next time I’d get my hair done & the price would b less then. It was worth it! Mel did a fabulous job, she was honest about everything I’d need from day 1, & she continues 2 do my hair now. I’m a loyal client of her’s & my hair always looks amazing. I highly recommend her to any1 who wants a GREAT!

    Hey! I get my hair done here too. She is great+
    I guess the $ depends what you get done. I get highlights & lowlights. It’s different each time I go b/c sometimes I just need a touch up on my roots, sometimes I add more highlights and diff. color toners. I have really long hair so that tends to make it a bit pricier.- I think the least I have spent was $120 & the most around $300. You really need to go in for a consultation to get a $. I try to go on Wed. b/c you get a free haircut w/ color work. Mel is definitely worth the $. Check her out if you can.

    By the way, How can I leave a vote for MakeOvers?

  5. hudsonnative says:

    When I tried to vote, I just clicked onto the rating box w/ stars. When you click, make sure you click on the # of stars you want b/c it automatically casts your vote by hitting the box. I meant to rate 5 stars but clicked over #4 by accident & you can’t change your vote. In response to the prices at Makeovers; I find them reasonable compared to most pretentious salons in the city.

  6. xavier says:

    I use rachel, but only for a cut. I love her.

  7. lily731 says:

    i get my color done here and i love it. it’s a little more than i’d like to pay but i know i can trust the people who work here.

  8. noone says:

    now if only get could get rid of those trashy broads smoking butts out there all day long.

  9. b says:

    noone – i love the fact that you’re a woman! Not even kidding…that’s not an insult. I used to think you were a guy.

  10. lily731 says:

    yea.. i started out thinking you were a girl, then i decided you were a guy…. now the truth comes out

  11. Red Haven says:

    Congrats to them for the facelift to the store, but noone hit it right on the head. The new look will do little good as long as they keep letting the Adriana La Cerva-wannabees hang outside there smoking and screaming into their celphones in front of the place.

  12. RMJ says:

    Before bashing people you don’t even know, you might want to learn how to spell “cellphones” correctly Red Haven. I have been going to makeovers for many years and the girls are anything but trashy. I think I sense a little jealousy! They are good looking girls and very friendly at that. Don’t judge a book by its cover!

  13. RMJ says:

    By the way, I see Rachel for my highlights and cut and she is amazing! I highly recommend her.

  14. noone says:

    jeolous of what?? smoking butts and screaming on a cell phone sitting on someone’s front stoop. I don’t know red haven but if that’s how you detect jeolousy your life must really suck bad!!!!

  15. SusanK says:

    Just want to say Mel from Make Overs is great. I’m thrilled with her work & highly recommend her+

  16. Kerageous says:

    I love going to Mel. She can do anything I ask & she always does a terrific job. She has a great sense of style that makes her a step ahead of the rest. The girl was born to do hair. Check her out! I wouldn’t go to anyone else. :mrgreen:

  17. elainetyger says:

    Melissa does my hair, too — cut and single-process color (no bleaching or stripping, also called non-permanent) — and I’m very pleased with her work.

  18. biabella says:

    Secret’s out… Mel is great! I love the way she does my hair. Always a pleasure. I try to get my highlights done every other month. I’d go more often if I could. Maybe someday… :mrgreen:

  19. dilizi says:

    Thanks all! Went to Mel/ Melissa at Makeovers. She’s Awesome. Seriously, The best hair-dresser I’ve ever been to! I will definitely go back to her.

  20. kooky kat says:

    I spend hundreds of dollars on hair products every year, always looking for something new that might work with my curly hair.

    Every time I walk into this place, I feel like I am being followed around like a bloody thief. This past Friday (black friday) I went in just to poke around, see what might be new that I haven’t tried and I was followed around by one of the sales girl through the ENTIRE store. Every time I would look up, or behind me there she was “straightening” stuff on the shelves. Hey, I get that people steal. I don’t know what a thief “looks” like exactly, but I am pretty sure I am not it, and even if I was, could you possibly be more obvious about it!?

    Lost yourself a customer Makeovers, a customer who loves to burn money on a bunch of hair crap!! And I mean a BUNCH of money! Don’t even get me started on hair dryers, irons and brushes!
