As there are no teen perspectives, I figured I’d offer my own. Matthew is a phenomenal hair stylist, with a cutting technique that I’ve yet to see elsewhere. Although traditional barbers are the default option, I found myself never getting the cut I asked for and envisioned. With Matthew, I’ve yet to get a bad cut. He is leaps and bounds more trust-worthy and consistent than any barber. When he says this salon is for both men and boys, he means it. His ability does not change based on age. Do yourself a favor and get your haircut with him.read more

My entire life I’ve been getting my hair cut from the local barber and never really put too much thought into it. But about a year ago I met Mathew and he told me he was a stylist and with my hair type he can do some pretty cool things. So I gave it a try. It was a totally different experience then what I was accustomed to. He is like an artist of hair! I was amazed , and my wife was very happy too. She loved my new hair style. Mathew also has a great personality, friendly, and professional. You can tell he really cares about his art. I’m 100% impressed and a customer for life!read more

Matt has been cutting my hair for years, and it is great that he opened up this new lounge. It is clean and in a great location. I highly recommend for anyone that is looking for more than a barbershop buzz cut.read more

Matt is the man. Been using him for 4 years now. There is no cookie cutter hair cut with him. He helps you customize your cut to your hair type, texture etc. He won’t let you do a hair style that is not meant for you. I love that. Who else does that these days? Thank you for your unique service and style!read more

My hair takes someone with great experience and patience to tame and style and Matt-OZ is that guy! He has been my hair guy for the past 3 years and is the best! This is NOT a barber hair cut, but a professional stylist who knows what he is doing. And he is funny too!The salon is great as well. I give Matt my strongest recommendation!read more

First time going to a men’s salon (as there aren’t many nearby), and was not disappointed! I spoke to Matthew about what I dislike about my hair and also what look I wanted for my wedding day, and he took the time to explain and recommend different options and ultimately gave me the perfect haircut. I’m very excited that we have a real men’s salon in town and I can’t wait to go back! Also looking forward to having my new haircut on my wedding day! Matthew is awesome!read more

Matthew is an extremely talented hairstylist for my short hair. I had one of the best haircuts. I also did Keratin... it was amazing. Cannot recommend enough.

Years ago, I grew tired of waiting hours in line at barber shops only to get a mediocre haircut. Since then, I’ve been searching for a place that could not only offer great men’s haircuts, but also would also take appointments. Finally, my prayers have been answered. I cannot say enough about the great experiences I’ve had at Matthew Alain Men’s Hair Lounge. Matthew is a genuinely nice guy, who is both passionate about his craft and about helping people. If you share in my frustrations and are searching for a better alternative to the barbershops, give Matthew a try. You won’t be disappointed.read more

Man what can I say. I've been coming to Matthew for around a year or so now. He has consistently cut my hair perfect every time when I come in. I come in wanting different hairstyles every time and he always gives me what I want. I I'm very particular about my hair and how I want it cut so to find someone locally to do it right every time is a huge blessing.read more

Matthew Alain Men’s Hair Lounge is AMAZING! I have gone to so many hair salons/barbers in the area. Some were terrible and others were just okay. I just brought my son to Matthew Alain’s for a cut, and can honestly say it’s the best cut ever and far exceeded my expectations! After going to Matthew Alain, I realized just how much of a difference there is between getting a hair cut by someone who cuts hair, versus going to a talented and skilled hair stylist who knows hair, trends, and style. Let me just say/ there is a HUGE difference!read more

I loved the work on my hair so much the first time and have now been here a second time. Matthew does a phenomenal job...with everything! My cut looks awesome! But beyond that I've had him color my hair and also got a keratin treatment. He did an amazing job. I also want to thank him for squeezing in an extra treatment and being accommodating. He now cuts my son's hair too and did a great job on his as well!!read more

Matthew’s barbershop is extremely well kept and a lovely place to have your hair taken care of. He is always hospitable as he offers me coffee every cut. I have yet to get a cut I did not like and get compliments on the styling often. He will work with you to make your hair as you wish- A stylist vs a barber is night and day. See you soon Matthew!read more

From the first time I visited Matt and his lounge I had an excellent experience. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted warmly by the him and offered a complimentary beverage while I waited for my appointment.When it was my turn, Matthew took the time to ask me what I wanted and gave me some suggestions based on my hair type and face shape. He was attentive and detail-oriented, ensuring that every hair was trimmed to perfection. I appreciated his professionalism and the fact that he took the time to make sure I was happy with the final result.I highly recommend Matthew Alain men’s hair lounge (I call it MAMHL) and specifically Matthew for his exceptional skills and friendly demeanor. I will definitely be back for my next haircut.read more

This was my first haircut in about five months, I was letting my hair grow out after a bad experience with a different barber. I was hesitant to cut my hair because I did not want another chopped haircut, but I found Matthew on Instagram and decided to take the leap and make an appointment. When I arrived Matthew greeted me with a very clean/organized lounge and immediately made me more comfortable, we were able to work together and decided on a haircut that would look best for me. Matthew worked his magic and I couldn't be happier. I have regained trust in male barbers and will be returning to Matthew's hair lounge in due time. Highly recommend!read more

This review is long overdue. Matthew is super talented. Not pretentious. Just really down to earth and knows what he’s doing. My son and I were using one of the local Merrick barbershops and couldn’t stand how pompous and arrogant they were. Matthew makes you feel at home and is a true artist. Rarely do we wait more than a couple minutes— that’s because he’s running an efficient business and schedules his appointments in advance. Highly recommend Matthew if you’re looking for something new. Something better!!!read more

I wanted to get a slightly different hairstyle than what I usually get and I decided to visit Matthew’s shop based on all the good reviews I’ve seen and he did not disappoint at all. This was probably the best experience I’ve ever had at a barber/salon, he was very welcoming and extremely professional the whole time. He was able to help me find a hairstyle that better suited my head and I was very very happy with the end result. I will definitely be coming back for future haircuts. Just make sure to book an appointment ahead of time since he can get fully booked for days at a time.read more

After a long search, and countless Long Island Barbershops that only seem to know how todo the same one style cut with buzzers I found Matthew. There is such a clear difference in skill level that was immediately obvious from the initial consultation, his recommendations on a new style (and how to fix the disaster from previous Barbers), his use of shears to cut and texturize, and superb use of the buzzer for an amazing fade and blend. Matthew now has a customer for life. If you are looking for a great cut and style, stop wasting time on these run of the mill, fly by night Barbers and invest in a real stylist, you owe it to yourself.read more

Top notch Mens Salon! Matthew is experienced and talented stylist. I came in asking for my standard cut I’ve been getting for the last 10 years and he challenged me to try something different. I’m very satisfied with his work and so is my wife! I will be coming back from here on out. I highly recommend.read more

If you are looking for new place for a haircut on the south shore of Long Island your search is over - Matthew Alain’s brings the sophistication of a Manhattan men’s lounge but with a neighborhood feel (with reasonable prices) to Bellmore/Merrick. I was hesitant trying something new after +25 yrs with the same style but Matthew’s extensive experience, suggestions and the incredible cut by Donna resulted in an outstanding result. Thanks Donna see you again in a few weeks!read more

Finally a barber for men that has the highest standard for quality and style that I have come across in all of LI!Lana, the perfect blend of experience, skill and personality, gave me what is now my favorite haircut of all my 38 years. She made me feel right at home and revealed herself as a true artist, seeing the potential in my very wild pre-cut hair condition. I was also impressed that she proactively sought collaborative input from the shops owner Matthew, who is an exceptional host and clearly a talented master of the craft.All that said, the entire experience was a real joy and I’ll be going back time and time again.My only critique is that I think they should consider adding a drop of eucalyptus essential oil in the water they use for the hot face towels as I have found that to be pleasant in the past.If you want the best, you should absolutely see what this place can do!read more

I am so happy to find my esthetician again. She works at Matthew Alain Salon, that is amazing. I am her client for long time. Since she moved I tried some esthetician in my area. But no one gives the best facial that I had before. Again I am very happy to be able to booked a facial and microdermabrasion, because it was fantastic. My skin looked and felt much smoother.read more

I can't rave enough about the incredible talent and skill of Matthew. From the moment I stepped into his salon, I knew I was in for a top-notch experience. Matthew's passion for hairstyling is evident in every snip and style he creates.Not only is Matthew a true artist, but he also possesses an innate ability to understand his clients' visions and bring them to life. His attention to detail is unparalleled, and he goes above and beyond to ensure that every strand is perfect. I've never left his chair anything less than thrilled with the results.Beyond his exceptional technical skills, Matthew's warm and friendly demeanor creates a welcoming atmosphere. The salon is a haven of relaxation, and Matthew's professionalism and creativity make each visit an absolute pleasure.If you're in search of a hairstylist who combines talent, passion, and a keen eye for detail, look no further than Matthew. Trust me, your hair will thank you!read more

After seeing my son so unhappy after EVERY haircut I took a chance and brought him to Mattew Alain after reading soooo many 5 star reviews. I gotta tell you, all those reviews are correct. My son was finally smiling after his haircut. They were so welcoming when we got there, like we were old friends. And they really took the time to listen to how this 13 year old wanted his full head of curls cut (not short!) and took their time doing it and showing him different angles multiple times. They even gave me an espresso while I waited. The price is worth the extra attention. Donna is his new permanent hair stylist! Thank you so much.read more

I just got back from my first appointment with Matthew and I was extremely impressed. This guy is the real deal. What a great addition to the neighborhood. I've been searching for a new stylist since my last barber (RIP Olivia) passed away and I've finally found him. Thank you so much for the great cut and advice, Matthew. I highly recommend this place to all my neighbors. Well worth the price of admission!read more

I was always some one who HATED getting haircuts. Barbers on Long Island don’t operate the way Matthew and his team does. Top quality haircuts. I’ve been cut by Matthew and Donna who are both fantastic at cutting and styling men’s hair! This is by far the best men’s hair salon on Long Island!!!!read more
