Our Staten Island Hair Salon & Spa Reviews
One of the best in NYC – by Sharon KL at Citysearch
I have been going to the Secret Garden for almost three years and I have never been happier. The salon is by far the best there is in Staten Island and in the whole city in general! I have really, really curly hair and I have had difficulty dealing with it my entire life. Once I went to Lisa at the salon, she transformed my hair! She showed me how to use the Deva products for curly hair and now my hair looks professionally styled every time I curl it! Not only does the Secret Garden carry the amazing Deva product line, but they also carry hair transforming Blow products. These products are all healthy, organic products, (as all products at this green salon are), and allow your blowout to last for over a week, while protecting it from all kinds of damage ranging from heat to the elements! Along with these amazing styling products, Lisa also introduced me to organic coloring and Hi Shine glazes that leave my hair soft for months after I color it! For all you curly haired girls out there, you know what a challenge it is to keep your hair soft, and not dried out but Lisa can do it! As a curly haired girl herself she knows exactly how to take care of your locks with the gentlest, professional touch while also educating you on the dangers and advantages of certain products and services. Lisa has done wonders for my hair; she has taught me how to handle my hair in ways I never thought I could do by myself and her blowouts are better than anything that any salon in NYC has to offer! Go to the Secret Garden and ask for Lisa and I can PROMISE and GUARANTEE that you will never go anywhere else for any of your hair needs!
Just wanted to give a big thank you for my amazing deva cut! by far the best cut and style i’ve received in a long time!!!
Yasmin for color and Lisa for a cut-does it get any better??? NO, It does not!!! these girls are amazing with their skills:) Thank you for yet another positive experience!
I had a cranial sacral massage with Teresa. To my delight, I left The Secret Garden minus a migraine headache along with emotional and physical rejuvenating effects that lasted throughout the day. I was told that I looked so relaxed and happy all day! As a therapist, I will be highly recommending this service to my …clients and friends. I do LOVE the Secret Garden Salon! ?…….Ok so today I was the most blessed girl in the world! I had the Detox package (dry brushing, massage, sauna) with Teresa who definitely has healing hands!! Then off to pedicure in private room on a comfy massage chair for the royal jelly pedicure with AMY and she also did my manicure. Amy is is not only a brilliant technician, but super gentle and sweet. Then off to my absolutely gorgeous blowout with LISA and amazing scalp massage by Nicole when she washed my hair. THANK YOU Secret Garden Angels!! xo

This Secret Garden is such a beautiful spa which is home to many talented professionals and a staff that is always warm and friendly. I feel as if I am on a mini vacation when I enter the spa. I can’t thank Vivian enough for applying her new technique to my hair. As we call it “The Vivie” I love sporting my new luscious locks. Did anyone say Goddess 🙂

Didn’t know what to expect when I purchased a Groupon for the Secret Garden Spa but was delightfully surprised upon arriving. Great ambience, fun decor and friendly people. A+ service and I am very pleased with both the massage and the additional service (cut and blow) that I purchased. Thank you Danielle and Alicia. Will definitely plan on returning and recommending to friends.

This Garden is Not Just for women – Justin Hendelman
It has been very difficult for me to find a good barber/hair stylist. I have finally found a home at the Secret Garden with Tara! she made me feel very comfortable and cut my hair exactly the way I wanted it. I also absolutely love the products she recommended to me, the Aveda line for men; In particular the grooming clay which I use daily, it is not greasy nor does it make white flakes in my hair and I don’t have to reapply it throughout the day. The shaving cream and aftershave is a godsend! I had a really bad razorburn that made my face swollen…within an hour of applying the Aveda aftershave it was gone and my skin was smooth and calm. I love that the products here are not full of chemicals and irritants, as I have very sensitive skin. I also recommend the experienced nail techs who gave me an amazing pedicure!! It was so relaxing and the leg/foot massage was out of this world. Robert,the massage therapist is awesome! I went to him for an hour massage with a sauna session to follow. Robert tailored the massage to pay special attention to the areas that I had the most discomfort in. The sauna was so serene and a great way to release toxins and tension. I highly recommend the Secret Garden, as you can tell I am hooked. It is a place not only for women! The staff is professional, personable and on time. The salon and spa are always clean and inviting. You are missing out if you have not been here yet!
