"I had a shampoo, haircut and blow dry for the first time yesterday with Lari Manz. I am very happy. She gave me the exact style I showed in a photo. She is quite talented. In addition, she is a nice, friendly, intelligent person with class."
Teresa E, Germantown, NY
"We were so happy to find Lari! She worked with us from the moment I contacted her to inquire about hair and makeup for my daughter's 1st prom to that very special day. She was calm, professional and ensured that my daughter and her friend felt relaxed for their 1st prom experience while exceeding all their expectations. My daughter and her friend's hair and makeup was soft and beautiful. I would highly recommend Lari and have added her to my contacts for future events."
Melanie R, Chatham, NY
"Lari has been doing my hair for probably around 14 years and I can say she's one of the best! She is very thorough and always asked all of the right questions to ensure client satisfaction. She doesn't just do what she thinks will be best which I have experienced from 99% of other salons. I will be getting married next summer and can't wait to have her help out because she makes everything so much more enjoyable. I couldn't say one negative thing about this lovely human."
Joan M, Ancram, NY
"I had only used Lari once at the salon, when I found out she was doing hair at home I was in. I have very thick, coarse hair and have had a hard time in the past finding someone to control it. I have had numerous haircuts with Lari and I am always very pleased. My twenty-something daughter also goes and is consistently happy with Lari's work."
Michelle K, Hudson, NY
"Lari was very professional and did a fabulous job on my hair for my wedding day. She came straight to my home, brought everything she needed, and made the whole experience very relaxing. On top of all that, I didn't have a trial done and she really nailed the style I wanted on the first try. Thanks so much!"
Barbara K, Kinderhook, NY
"Since ever I use Henna for my hair, but it has always been a challenge to find hairstylist who are flexible and courageous enough to actually do it for me. Lari is one of those who is not afraid to do something new, she will always be open to keep learning and strive for excellence in whatever she is doing. Therefor her profound knowledge of hair/beauty/health is impressive and way exceeds that of most "normal" hairdressers. She is also an artist and I'm certainly someone who appreciate her not only for her skills in the realm of hair and beauty but for her wide range of talents and her wonderful personality."
Louise R, North Kingstown, RI
"I have been going to have Lari work her magic on me and my 15 yr old hair for the last 3 years or so. We live in Rhode Island, and travel 3 and 1/2 hrs. to the appointments. When you find someone who you like, that's what you do. Wouldn't go to anyone else."
Nikki S, Manhattan, NY
"Lari is a great stylist -- very experienced, talented, professional and low-key. In fact, she's so good that when she left the salon I go to, I called her at home! (And she knows curly.) Highly recommended."
Alicia L, New York, NY
"I brought my boyfriend's 14 year daughter to see Lari to help save a disastrous cut she received at one of those franchise chain places. Lari was wonderful! Not only did she give her a great haircut, she also recommended easy ways for he to take care of it. I was so happy to find someone upstate that has a real point of view and especially in such a laid back setting. Many thanks!"
Sonja G, Manhattan, NY
"I was very relieved to see Lari - I was a platinum blonde who got terrible stripy lowlights with an orange hue - Lari calmly and very holistically lifted my hair back to a soft beige blonde. Unlike most colorists who rush through the color process resulting in breakage, Lari applied oils ensuring that no more damage was done. I left with beautiful healthy blonde hair - finally found a stylist I can stick to! Living in New York City my entire life - I had my hair colored by almost every new up and coming salon and I have to say it is very rare to see someone who gives you the results that exceed your expectations."
Lina T, Brooklyn, NY
"I have been going to Lari for a couple of years now & so thrilled that I finally found someone who understands my hair & makes me look terrific. Lari always gives me a fab haircut & the best color I have ever had. Being in the film business I meet many hair/make-up artists & they always compliment my hair & ask who did it? She also gives great blow outs. I wouldn't dream of going to anyone else!"
Mame T, New Orleans, LA
"Lari Manz is the awesomest! My hair hasn't looked this good since grade school! I plan to be back on a regular basis because I want my hair to look like this forever! "
Joanie L, New Orleans, LA
"...Lari Manz, my new hero, had the most creative vision for my hair... it might be the best cut I've ever had!"
Chicory C, Brooklyn, NY
"I just had a fantastic cut and color from Lari Manz...i couldn't be happier. She is very knowledgeable & takes the time to make sure you are getting just the right shade for your skin tone."
Denise A, Marrero, LA
"...went back to Lari for cut, color and style. Had a great consult before proceeding and got what I was looking for. You will not be disappointed."
Shira G, New Orleans, LA
"Lari was great! I'll definitely return!"
Lari did a fantastic job working on my model who appeared in my photo shoot with a classic car in the Berkshires! I took the model to Lari for a preliminary discussion and then then next day Lari came to work on my model and then two shooting locations. Lari was knowledgeable and created the vintage 1950s look that I needed. Lari did a great job and was easy to work with!See all reviews
"Lari was great to work with for my wedding make up. She did make up for 2 moms, 2 bridesmaids, and a bride. She was so flexible working around hair being done as well. Her products were amazing the make up was so light on my face and stayed on through my August outdoor ceremony. Couldn't be happier with how it all worked out!" —Kara, December 23, 2014
"Lari and her assistant Taryn were absolutely fabulous! We had four people who needed hair and makeup done, of very differing complexions and hair types. Lari took the time to really come up with the perfect look for each of us. Both of them were very pleasant and professional, and the makeup looked great and stayed fresh the whole evening. Both were on time and ensured that everything was finished with plenty of time before the ceremony.
The hair, though, was really the star of the show. I received so many compliments, and it was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much for helping make the big day go smoothly! I highly recommend Lari for weddings and other big events."
