    Immediately greeted at the door, my coat taken, I felt so welcomed at Birds and Fellas. The cozy salon had that at-home feel, especially when wine or coffee was offered. The staff is extremely gracious. Asking about your magazine choice, drink preference and birthday, Birds and Fellas really makes you feel special. Aside from the immense hospitality, Jennifer spent a good 20 minutes with me making sure she understood what I wanted from my color and didn’t miss a detail. The result was amazing. It was exactly what I asked for and more than I imagined it could be. I’m extremely happy with the results & the price! A great spot, and the only salon I will go to from now on!

    I went to see Maria for the second time on March 13th to get a haircut and an ombre color. She did an amazing job! The cut and color are just perfect! Definitely see Maria for the perfect hair.

    As a transplant almost two years ago I searched for over a year to find a salon that is laid back, not too expensive and has stylists that are friendly, helpful and above all talented. When I finally found Birds and Fellas I was thrilled to find that they are just that. I love Maria. She really knows how to put together a great look and is so friendly and easy to work with. SO happy with this place!

  • Kat

    I love this little East Village gem. Christine is so friendly and so very knowledgeable; she knows exactly what I want even if I don’t! I have had a few coloring processes with her and each one has been great – a slight change, a season shift, something to lighten my hair and my mood. I will be back soon, I promise you that! -Thanks, Kat

  • Whitney

    Got THE CUTEST cut from Marisa! She listened to what I was after in terms of cut and color and help me figure out what would look the best on me instead of trying to recreate something I’d pulled from a magazine. I go back in a few days for my highlights and I can’t wait!

  • Alisa

    I like a stylist who actually gives me an expert opinion instead of going along with my uninformed one. Daniel not only gave excellent guidance but also gave me an excellent cut! Highly recommend him and the other friendly people at Birds & Fellas.

  • Katie

    I was very glad to find Maria at Birds & Fellas. She is one of the first people that I have been to that actually appreciated curly hair and really seemed to know what she was doing with it. My cut was great the first day and still looks good a month later. I’ll be back!

  • Meret

    I came in with long shapeless hair. Daniel & I talked about what I wanted–we figured out what I wanted together–and then he gave me a spectacular haircut. He brings craft and artistry together. Daniel is an undiscovered superstar.

    I just want to say what a great stylist and personality is Daniel. I had my hair cut with him yesterday and it felt like the first time in all my 44 years that I’ve sat in a salon chair and not felt intimidated. He listens really well, and “got” what I wanted, and even educated me on how to blow dry my hair between cuts, which has never happened – now I know how to keep my bangs looking nice! And most importanly, he cut my hair exactly like I wanted! (side note – all your stylists are better than any other salon i’ve been to about this I have to say, so often i have gotten the feeling that i received the hair cut the stlylist felt like doing – in other places)!

    Anyway, just some fan mail, Daniel is really really good at his job, and I am grateful, this is the first time I’ve left a salon and not tied my hair up straight away – and it’s still nice, the day after, and still not tied up!!

    Thank you Birds & Fellas,
    Thank you Daniel!
    Thank you!!

    ps – i wonder if you are on Yelp, I am going to give you lots of stars!

    Happy snow day!

  • Julie

    Maria is great! She spent several hours on my hair with a great attention to detail and it was well worth it! She is great and the salon is low key but super professional. I will be back!

  • Matt M.

    Maria was my first stylist at Birds & Fellas and I was super impressed! I am now a convert to B&F and will be returning in a few weeks. Thanks, Maria!

  • Julia

    Christie did a great job on my keratin treatment. She was careful, attentive, and fun to talk to! I look forward to going back.

  • Carolyn

    Had my first cut here last week and I will definitely be back. Friendly, professional service in a laid-back atmosphere. The cut was great and my stylist listened exactly to what I wanted. Awesome!

  • Jordan

    Love this place. Great atmosphere, cool vibe, complimentary drinks. Every stylist I’ve ever used has been excellent. Highly recommended.

  • Jarret

    Christie is great! I’ve been going to her for 3 months, and have never been disappointed.

  • Matt#5

    I work in the entertainment industry, and I need a cut that is going to look great for more than just a week. I found this place searching online. Believe the hype. The staff is friendly and attentive, and all of their stylists are exceptional. Daniel is my go to guy. I’m officially handing over the scissors, buddy, thanks. I hesitated to write a review. Frankly, I didn’t want to have to share.

    I’ve lived in the city for more than 2 years and struggled to get a good men’s haircut – I was jumping from one place to another, hoping to finally find somewhere solid. I’ve stopped looking – Daniel is fantastic.

  • Perez

    Maria is a fantastic stylist! Cute and low-key place. Definitely recommend it.

  • Amitis

    I haven’t had any luck with hair stylists since i moved to NY and i got my hair done every time i went back home to California. A friend introduced me to Birds and Fellas and i am in love. The first time i went there, Jennifer did an amazing job and i LOVED her personality. The second time Christine did a wonderful job as well and she was so sweet. Will definitely return to Birds & Fellas.

  • Gina

    I just wanted to thank Daniel for the best haircut I ever had. He listens, gives ideas & doesn’t rush you at all. I like how he tells you exactly how to fix your hair to make it look like you do when you leave the salon.

  • Will

    This place has a great atmosphere and turns a haircut from a once a month “necessity” into a pleasurable experience. If you show up a bit early for your appointment – you’re not seated off to the side like at a doctor’s office. Instead, you’re invited to a communal table where you’re treated like family (and offered a drink). Great tunes playing and lots of visual stimulation in the shop and outside on the sidewalk… or you can plug in your laptop and get some work done. Daniel is awesome at guys cuts (I’m a dude so I can’t vouch for his abilities with the ladies). He’ll work with you and offer recommendations on a cool yet managable style. He takes his time until the cut is perfect. You’ll walk out feeling like a million bucks… and regret not finding this place sooner.

  • daniel weiss

    I used Daniel and he was very creative and very good at what he does. I told him what I was looking for in a hair cut and he gave me just what i wanted. Thanks Daniel!

  • Sarah

    I loved Birds & Fellas! I had heard about this place through a friend and was really happy with the price, the atmosphere and most of all my cut and color. I got Ombre and a cut / blowdry. I highly recommend Christine – she did a great job! Exactly what I wanted. I will definitely be back!

  • Thais

    I finally found a place to get a fantastic haircut in NYC! I have long frizzy hair that most stylists find difficult to manage, but not at Birds and Fellas. I came in, they gave me a complimentary drink, and I had a very short wait (there were some fun books in the salon to entertain me). Then Marissa talked to me about what I’d like to do with my hair. She totally understood what I wanted and had great suggestions. Marissa shampoo-ed, cut, styled, and blow-dried my hair. I left the salon feeling like a rockstar. I can’t wait to go back. Thank you!

  • David Borden

    LOVE Birds and Fellas! First time in a long time I’ve felt really good about a haircut. Chic place, Fun people, Amazing service.

  • Marlene

    Just got color done by Chrissy and she was great–gave me a color that she carefully crafted. She was kind, attentive, and all-around fab!

  • Rachel V.

    I had an absolutely great experience. I looked up several different hairdressers while trying to find a good fit and I’m very glad I found Birds & Fellas on my first attempt. I’m new to the city and was looking for a place that I could come back to every month. Christine took care of my hair: I had my roots retouched, a cut and highlights and she excelled at all of them. She is very good with reds since she has that color herself – it can be very tricky to nail it. She is honest and creative and I recommend trusting her with your locks – she will only do what she believes will look the best on you, while also taking the time to understand your expectations and adjust to your wishes. In addition, the atmosphere of the place is incredible and the free drink is quite the treat. I don’t remember the last time I was so pleased after getting my hair done – it was totally worth it. Friendly staff and talented professionals – what more do you need?

  • James

    I’ve been to Birds & Fellas a couple of times now. It has a great fun feel and is stylish without being too pretentious. Had stylish Daniel look after me last time. I chose a style out of a list of images on their iPad and he basically nailed it. Everybody loved the cut. I.ll be back

  • Kendra

    I adore Birds & Fellas! I got the brazilian keratin hair treatment and it has worked like a charm! Great people, great atmosphere, great results!

  • Vaishali

    Daniel is awesome, I finally found a good hair dresser in Manhattan

  • Matt

    Nice place, very good haircut. Lots of care and attention, and a nice atmosphere too. Will definitely return to Birds & Fellas.

  • LizM

    Wow! I just had one of the best haircuts ever thanks to Christine @ BIRDS & FELLAS!

  • David B

    My first time at this place. I noticed it walking to get my usual coffee at Abraco. Great street appeal. Grabbed my coffee and checked the reviews of this place online. I didn’t have time to get a cut that day but kept this place in mind. Flash forward, I was going to head to the beach and wanted a trim. I walked in and they were very accommodating to get me in. There was a short wait, drank some wine and listened to their beats. I got my cut from a guy from California who was wearing these long socks and shorts… Very friendly but I don’t remember his name, David or Dan… Well anyway great cut, I was super happy. As I was leaving the manager came by and showed me how I can book my next cut online.
    Cool place and great cut.

  • Katie

    I love birds & fellas!!
    Christine was superb. I am alway anxious about getting color or highlights, but this girl rocked! I am so happy with everything.
    Great atmosphere, nice people- I will definitely continue to get cuts here.

  • Justen

    Just wanted to say thanks to Daniel and everyone at Birds & Fellas. I couldn’t be happier with my haircut. They have a great vibe, good music, and friendly people. Danny was the best. I’ve gotten my haircut at a few places around the East Village and so far none of them even come close to B&F. It was great having a stylist actually walk me through their recommendations and work with the style I had in mind. He definitely loves what he does and it shows! The attention to detail he put into my cut and taking a few minutes at the end to show me a few different styling techniques was GREAT!

    Thanks again you guys are the best.

    Absolutely lovely experience at Birds and Fellas. The design aesthetic is wonderful, just what a salon should be. Fun details are everywhere from the smartphone charging station, cup holders at every chair for your complimentary drinks, great music, good vibes, and wonderful art work. I was incredibly impressed by my haircut and the attention to detail that was paid to making sure I was satisfied and my vision was a reality. The staff is lovely. Daniel took care of me and my hair wonderfully, I walked out of Birds and Fellas smiling ear to ear.

    • Michelle

      Daniel what a talent, I finally found a stylist that get’s it!
      I’m very happy, Daniel you found a home on 7th Street, Don’t go anywhere else.
      Thanks, Michelle
