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!

Savvy Hair Salon reviewed in Hoboken, NJ


Savvy hair grand opening - Savvy Hair & Nail Studio

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!

Savvy Salon a very welcoming salon. Grace (the owner) treats you like family. The stylists talk to you, instead of around you and to each other. I’m not a fan of hair maintenance, but enjoy my time hanging out and getting my hair did at Savvy.

My stylist is Jill. She is a skilled professional…on top of being fun to talk to and hang out with during my hour at the salon. Whenever Jill finishes my hair, ladies in other chairs always asked their stylist for my haircut. I HAVE NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED! Jill is honest and has a great eye towards what looks good on you. I trust Jill completely. I don’t ever go to see her with an idea in mind…because I’m sure that Jill’s is better than mine could ever be. I highly recommend Jill and I have to many of my friends. All of my referrals are still with Jill as well. She’s amazing. Period. 😀

First and foremost…this is an upscale HAIR salon. I came here when I followed Jill from Bangz, and it is a MUCH nicer atmosphere. I’m so glad she made the move! 🙂
