I’ve searched for years looking for a great salon for color & cut and I’m happy to say I finally found one and would never trust anyone ever again with this gorgeous hair!!!

For all yelp users, this salon does Not deserve the 3 star rating, many people I know have enjoyed the same experience as I have at this salon. It’s a shame that some people take bad reviews to the heart & will not visit a place because of it. You never know until you try it yourself!

Thomas has been my Hair Stylist and Colorist for over 6 years and I can’t rave enough about his talent. I first met him when I wanted to add some color to my hair (for one of the major events of my life), not knowing exactly what I want. My hair has seen many colors, and colorists and I’ve never been completely satisfied. So I’ve researched many salons, and colorists until a friend of mine recommended Thomas. He worked with what I gave him and produced something I really liked! Ever since then, I keep coming back because I can’t trust anyone else with my hair especially when it comes to highlights and balayages. I am a very picky person, and he has been the first hairdresser/colorist who has consistently given me exactly what I want, even when I decide to change my style completely and don’t have a clear idea of what I want. He is an artist who carefully captures your most flattering tone and color. He looks at you, and talks about what your hair goals are. He’s honest about what will work for your tone and what won’t, that’s so important! He is professional, takes his time to get it right and makes sure you are both are on the same page. And most important I always feel beautiful when I leave his salon and always get compliments on my hair, either I’m blonde, brunette or a red head :) He truly is phenomenal!

Best Hair cuts, BEAUTIFUL salon, professional atmosphere, WILL return!

Hesitant to try a new stylist, because I wasn?t sure on his experience, but rest assured, Thomas Cole cut my hair that I had been growing for at least eight years (nothing but trims). Usually im very nervous and hesitant when it comes to trimming, but for some reason his demeanor relaxed me. I knew i wanted to cut my hair and I had a very specific style. He started snipping away and slowly what was long curly hair became a very short bob. I couldn?t have asked for a better hair cut. Truly an amazing experience and I can’t wait to go back for color.
* Pros: tentive to detail.
* Cons: none.


I have to say, I was very loyal to my famous NYC colorist, but after meeting Thomas Cole, I decided to give him a try. He was amazing…….the salon is so beautiful and Thomas and his staff are so great. My color was even better than I could have imagined – better than it has been in years. Shiny, Glossy and the perfect shade – exactly what I was trying to explain, but couldn’t find the words – Tom knew what to do. I am hooked and have found my colorist for the next decade at least.
* Pros: Profession and calming, highly personable and very comforting.


Gina has been coloring and cutting my hair for years. Never disappointed!! Best Salon Around!!!

Worth the trip

I live in Florida but about 3-4 times a year I make a trip to visit my family in Great Neck and spend time with my favorite hairstylist. Unlike some of the Great Neck salons there is a combination of high style and friendliness here. The owner takes the time to know your hair and work with it not against it. After I return to Florida, I am not standing in front of a mirror wondering how to duplicate the look I had when I got out of the chair. It just works! And although it’s always part of my vacation, I consider this one place that I will keep on my traveling agenda.

I love my hair for the first time in years!!! Its healthier and more stylish than ever before. Thanks Tommy!!!!

For the first time ever, I have found a stylist who gives me EXACTLY WHAT I ASK FOR. I have very long, curly hair and it has always been a challange for me to style and maintain. Tommy asked if I was interested in having the brazillian hair treatment done. I was a bit apprehensive at first because I have “virgin” hair and I didnt want to lose my curls for good. He gave me some info and explained how it would reduce the amount of breakage and split ends my hair usually has due to straightening and self styling. He also informed me that it was a protein treatment that added shine, reduced dryness and built each strands integrity. Well ladies, he was right! I have not had one bad hair day since the treatment and I have almost NO SPLIT ENDS OR BREAKAGE!!!! Not to mention, I have said so long to summer frizz! (We all know how brutal NY summers can be on a girls hair) How often have YOU said that your stylist has actually made your hair HEALTHIER, MORE MANAGABLE, and given it MORE SHINE THAN EVER BEFORE?! Thanks Tommy for taking my hair from a 4 to a 10!!!!! You will never be able to get rid of me!!!
*Pros: I know I will always walk out looking like a million bucks

It ain’t easy being a Red-Head….

…when you weren’t born that way! But let me tell you that I used to look at Julia Roberts and Debra Messing or Julianne Moore and, knowing that their hair didn’t grow out looking like that I’d wonder where I was EVER going to find a salon that didn’t give me a bowl of flat, red hair. OMG! the first time I walked out of TCS I almost cried with joy! I had that beautiful, vibrant red hair with highlights and lowlights that made me look like a movie star! Whether I wear my hair straight or curly people stop me while waiting to cross the street, or in an elevator or on the subway to tell me how beautiful my hair is. I work in SOHO so people naturally assume that I get my hair done in the area and are surprised when I tell them my stylist is in Great Neck. But when I them that he’s a super short walk from the Great Neck train station they ask for Tommy’s number. Oh, and did I mention he colored and styled my hair for my Wedding…yep..wouldn’t go anywhere else. Ever.
* Pros: I have the best hair ever
* Cons: Tommy doesn’t live in my bathroom

Great for Brazilian Straightening

I went to Thomas Cole for a Brazilian straightening (my first time). Tom explained everything to me beforehand and made me feel very comfortable. The salon is warm and inviting, as is the staff. I’ve been there twice now and it’s like going to hang out with a friend. And coming out looking great! I highly recommend Tom for a Brazilian and he also cuts and styles my friend’s hair and she always looks amazing. The salon is also right near a parking lot, which is very convenient (bring quarters).
*Pros: Tom, staff, Brazilian straightening, atmosphere
*Cons: none


Quality… Excellence… And high character of ownership!

I would give this place 6 stars if i could! i went to the Thomas Cole salon to get my hair Brazilian straightened and everyone that works there is SO nice! my hair is so beautiful and soft and amazingly straight!! my hair was so unmanageable before i got the treatment done and now all i have to do is blow dry it and its so perfectly straight! i have gotten my hair done so many other times at other salons and this is by far the best!! the treatment is all natural and its a miracle!!! thank you so much!! i will definitely be back!
