I've had the pleasure of working with Reiko for my june 12th wedding. Reiko did my hair and what a superb job she did! Not only did I feel and look beautiful on all of my pictures, my hair held up in 80% humidity in Central Park and were stunning during the ceremony (held outside) and the reception hall hours later. Through out the evening , people complimented my hair and were asking me for the # of the magician that turned my frizzy mess of ponytail into the gorgeous hair that any bride can only dream of. If you want to look beautiful on your wedding day(or any day for that matter) give Reiko a call.
I live in SF, but my wedding was at New York.It was difficult to manage the time with people for trial.However,Reiko was so flexible. I did trial a week before my wedding and she was great.My mother in law liked her make-up & hair style a lot.I really recommend her and I would use her for my future event for sure.
My wedding was in last January & I'm glad I chose Reiko to do my hair & makeup. They lasted the whole day through the evening until I decided I finally had to remove them! I looked the best ever even in photos - never received so many compliments on my looks. Reiko & I decided on having my entire hair up which looked classy yet chic. The colors she used on my face definitely complimented my skin tone & bone structures - I am usually very picky about these things. I loved her eye make up on me which appeared subtle & elegant with just the right touch of shimmers for glamor. Too bad I can't recreate what she did at home... :( I'd consider going back for my vow renewal with my bridesmaids.
I've been going to Reiko for a couple of years now. Her haircuts always get me compliments. She does a great job with color and highlights as well. She is quick, efficient, and very professional. She is always ready at your scheduled appointment which is a big deal to me, considering my busy schedule. The salon's prices are also quite reasonable.

Reiko's Head spa was a fantastic experience for me!
When I heard that soothing music Reiko prepared from her headphone, I felt like I was in a different world. Her gentle but right pressure to the precise point took away my stress and shoulder pain from my computer work! After this, my blood circulation became really good and my body felt much lighter than before.
Her other services are also professional and kind. She listens to what you want and gives what you need.
I recommend everyone who wants to have a relaxing experience in NY,
go to Reiko's!!

... it's for Reiko who has been my hair dresser for years and has recently moved to Janet Rufin's Parlor. Reiko's move to her new location was a good choice, the salon is large and sunny, and while it is busy, it rarely feels crowded. Reiko was the one who originally agreed to cut my shoulder length bob completely off on a VERY hot summer afternoon. I wanted a short haircut reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn, not Winona Ryder, and Reiko understood perfectly. She dove right in and never hesitated to give me the drastic change I craved. That was four years ago, and I've been seeing Reiko ever since. When Reiko moved, there was no question that I would follow her anywhere. I can be confident that Reiko will always give me exactly what I want, with no lengthy explanation necessary. I believe in trusting certain things to a professional, and Reiko is a true professional. I highly recommend turning to Reiko for a wide array of services, including makeup and hair color. You must try her Japanese head spa. It leaves my scalp feeling clean and refreshed, and my whole body relaxed. I now schedule a head spa for every haircut, because let's face it, I deserve it. Because Reiko is an independent stylist working out of this salon, to make an appointment it is best to call her directly at 646 221 6317.
