I LOVE this salon!!! I haven’t had my hair cut in about 15 years because I’ve always walked out upset. Marie was nothing short of amazing! She was patient and explained everything she was doing before she did it. She also did my color, which turned out amazing. I actually walked out happy with my cut and blowout too. Her technique was something I’ve never seen and was really cool. I have bad hair due to illness and medication, and she actually made it look healthy. Thank you ALL so much. Everyone was SO nice … Kerri, the owner and Kaylee, the receptionist were great and really sweet! They give you a free care package when you leave and, if you refer friends, you both get money off! Just a great place. I will DEFINITELY be back in eight weeks! THANK YOU, MARIE!! I highly recommend this salon to anyone looking for a great place with wonderful people and A LOT of different services! ♥♥♥♥♥

This salon has an upscale homey feel. Everyone is super nice, and you always feel welcome. Janine is an awesome stylist. Always listens to how I want my hair cut and styled. I will keep going back!

Love the girls here!!!! I have been getting my hair cut by Penny now for a good number of years. I took my little girl a few times now too, and she loves the personal treatment she got from Penny and the rest of the staff! Always a friendly atmosphere and great service.

First time going to this salon. My hair was a complete mess. I haven’t had hair color or haircut done in more than seven months and my first time going here, so I was a little nervous. When I called to make an appointment, they were super nice on the phone. When I got there for my appointment, everyone was so friendly, and they all worked together to help me. Even the owner, Kerry, was involved to make sure I had what I wanted. They made me feel very comfortable, and they are all so nice there. Stephanie was the one who did my hair, and she was so good at her job ― full of confidence and made me feel not nervous at all. I will be returning again without a doubt. Thank you, Shear Instincts in West Islip.

Sam was amazing! It was my first time there, and she spent time with me and discussed what would work and what wouldn’t. I love her, and I will be back again!! Also, I left with a goodie bag 🙂
