Savvy Hair & Nail Studio
Savvy to merge with Salon Rouge in Hoboken, NJ
Savvy officially opened on March 23, 2006. This location was the previously doomed Carol Marsh for Mayor campaign headquarters and the “Internet Zone” before that (remember those wacky internet cafes?)
Well, this space will be vacant at the end of September – as they’re merging with Salon Rouge up the street (1030 Washington) on October 1st.
And as a special treat – they’re offering clients a 15% discount off total service on their first visit to Salon Rouge. Good luck with the merger!
Description: Hair cuts, styling, & color, manicures, pedicures, waxing
1002 Washington St., Hoboken, NJ 07030 (merging with Salon Rouge at 1030 Washington)
Savvy Hair Salon reviewed in Hoboken, NJ
Let’s face it, most of us get our hair cut, and we need someplace to go. I needed a haircut, and my current cutter from Ferraz was unavailable since they’re undergoing renovations. When I realized that there was no official entry for Savvy, I decided to give them a review, too!
I was greeted by Grace, the owner as well as a stylist. Danielle, Amy, Julia and Patty round out their staff of five. Also working there is Elisa, their manicurist.
They took my coat, and I had to choose someone to cut my hair. They suggested Danielle, and off to the sink to get my hair washed. All other stylists came from other salons in Hoboken, bringing their clients with them. Danielle was the only one that didn’t. Not so much I can describe about getting a haircut at this point, but she was friendly, attentive and also quite quick, which I wasn’t used to. She teaches cutting and often has to perform in front of students, which contributes to her speed. I had no problem with it. She did a fine job. Again, I have a simple hair style. The cost for a men’s haircut is $30, which is on the lower-end compared to other salons uptown, so I was happy. I don’t know how the women’s prices were, well, since I’m not a woman.
Additionally, since I was reviewing the place (and had a bad hang nail), I decided to do my once a year manicure. It helped that Grace was ranting and raving about her “Nail Artist”. Yes, men get them too. It’s just a healthy thing to do once a year at least. Call me what you want.
I’ve never really had a manicure from someone that spoke regular conversational English, let alone from this country. It was a pleasant surprise. Elisa is a sweet and talented manicurist that did a great job. You know, typing all day is stressful. I felt clean, relaxed and presentable afterward.
Overall, the group that works there are fun and talkative. If you’re having hair-cutter issues, or looking to try something new out, give them a try and report back what your experience was!
