Finally! – Finally, after two years in Ithaca I found a good hair stylist! After having tried many other places I was relieved to come to Gia's and get a good hair cut. Nalyn was very friendly and talkative, and wasn't afraid to offer her professional opinion on what would work for my hair, while listening to what I was looking for. She took her time, and really tried to perfect the cut until she and I were both satisfied with it.
Be prepared to spend a little more than some of the cheaper salons in town, but it is worth the money!
I love it – I recently had my hair cut by Gia in Triphammer Mall. It was a wonderful experience and I am definitely going to go back!
I was surprised to see that she has a whole section of her salon dedicated to used clothing for sale. All the clothing is really nice and designer names.
I highly recommend both her salon and shop. Gia is wonderful and I am looking forward to my next visit :-)
AMAZING HAIRCUT!!! – Nalyn is the best stylist I've ever been too! She gives an amazing cut with tons of attention to detail. And she's fun at the same time! She knows exactly what you're looking for and makes sure you're completely satisfied before you leave the salon. I've been disappointed by far more expensive salons around Ithaca, and from now on GIa's is the only place I'll be going. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed!
Good Good – She knows how to cut an Asian's hair, that's great! I'll go back to her next time.
Finally, A Quality Cut in Ithaca! – Let me get right to the point: I am Korean. Like most Asians, my hair is very difficult to cut - it is coarse, it grows in thickly, and you can see any mistakes in cutting it from about ten feet away. I have been living in and out of Ithaca since 2002, and it wasn't until I went to Gia's Elite Style that I finally found someone in Ithaca who could cut my hair properly.
The stylist at Gia's does an amazing job from start to finish. She takes the time to study your face and to listen to you explain what you want to do with your hair. Along the way, she gives helpful suggestions for the cut. Once she starts cutting, she takes her time to do everything just right; I never feel like she's going ahead of what I want. My cut usually takes about 30 minutes, and she uses every minute of it to the max. And, remarkably, she's able to hold a fun and genuine conversation the whole time! She really understands hair, and she takes your haircut personally.
All of this for just around $30-35! I'll be sticking with Gia's Elite Style for the rest of my time here in Ithaca.
Fabulous Haircuts! – Nalyn has been cutting my hair for almost a year now. She is AMAZING! Every haircut I've gotten looks fabulous!! Nalyn also has a bubbly personality and is so fun to chat with while getting your haircut. I won't go anywhere else in Ithaca!
Best service and Haircut! – I went to get the first professional hair cut I have had in over 8 years. I went to Gia's Elite Style because my daughter is friends with the owners daughter. I received the friendliest welcome, my daughter got an awesome haircut and the way she wanted it and I got the greatest hair cut. It fet great; I swear Nalyn has magick fingers because I almost fell asleep. I had my eyebrows waxed for the first time ever by Nalyn also. This is the only salon I will ever go to and Nalyn gave me great hair advice and tips for my next visit to her and what kind of cut would be good for my hair. Thanks Nalyn, you rock!!!! And you have the best personality ever, you made me and my daughter feel so comfortable!
Great hair cuts! – Best in Ithaca!
I am so glad that I found Gia's before I wasted my time with other stylists! When I get my hair done, I'm treated like a movie star, and it's so much fun. I always get the style I'm looking for and she also adds an edgy trend that fits my personality. She also offers great advice on hair-care products to use for my specific hair type as well as suggestions for new things to try. I also love how I can typically walk in and she can do my hair then and there. I get short hair cuts, and anytime I go to a barber, I always walk away with a cut that looked great in the picture, but not so on me. Nalyn is able to take a picture I bring in and give me the cut I want with a new trendy edge so that it fits my features. All the while we chat and joke, and she won't let me leave until she knows I'm happy.
In short: great quality hair cuts and styles that make me feel and look like a celebrity without breaking the bank all done by a great woman who is very welcoming and professional.
nalyn is the best! – Do not hesitate to try out Nalyn's services. She is really great - professional, very attentive to detail, flexible if you need her to be, friendly, honest, and most importantly, she does a fantastic job!!! I thank my lucky stars I found her, some 5 years ago, when I randomly walked into her previous salon; although it was already late in the day she spared no time or effort to transform my usual basic trim into a stylish 'razor cut', complete with subtle highlights and an eyebrow touch-up to boot! (Since then she'd moved to Triphammer mall which is even more convenient for me as I like to shop/snack there.) Ever since that unexpected makeover, i have been hooked. Keep in mind also that considering the quality of her work, she keeps her prices at a very reasonable level. So make an appointment now - or just go walk in, as I still usually do...
