5 Star Lief Beauty Boutique Reviews


I had the most amazing experience at Lief Beauty Boutique. The boutique is so unique and beautiful that I immediately felt relaxed and comfortable. My hair, which needed some serious help and work, came out looking gorgeous and natural, and best of all I am still getting lots of compliments. Erica is a super talented hairdresser who has helped me transform my hair into better shape. Besides giving great cuts and color, Erica did my daughter's wedding hair and makeup. The styles were incredible, very artistic and definitely not typical. The makeup was done by airbrush and looked very natural and flawless and lasted the entire day. If you're looking for a salon where the attention and focus is all on the costumer, a place where you can escape and really feel relaxed, then this is definitely the place to visit. Thank you Lief for everything!

I would trust no one else to do my highlights except Erica - she always does a fantastic job! The experience is truly relaxing and enjoyable from start to finish - I would also recommend booking Michelle for a manicure & pedicure while your hair is setting. She is incredible!

Erica is an amazing hairdresser. She made our wedding day by making all of us look so beautiful. The bride's hair was absolutely beautiful and so was the mother of the bride. We never looked more beautiful!!!! Erica is sweet, calm and so warm. She is extremely talented and knows her work. After 10 years of using my hairdresser, I am now using Erica!!!

Lief Beauty Boutique is a beautiful little haven of joy right on Broadway in downtown Nyack. When you enter, it feels like you have slipped into a magical hideaway. I had a blissful facial by Vlatka, which made me feel refreshed and alive.

Erica, the owner of Lief Beauty Boutique, is an incredibly talented stylist who has consistently given me (and my husband!) wonderful, wearable hairstyles. She listens carefully to your requests and provides you with guidance of how to get the look you are going for. She's a master at hair color and a gifted make up artist. I started seeing her 3 years ago when I was looking for a makeup artist for my wedding. She not only made me look stunning on my wedding day but taught me so many styling tips I still use to this day. The environment of the boutique is hip and modern, but also relaxing and welcoming and the make up and hair products offered are all exceptional. I highly recommend Lief Beauty Boutique to anyone, whether you're looking for a simple cut, a new color or the perfect look for a special occasion.

Erica is such an amazingly talented hairdresser and makeup artist and just a wonderful person all around. During the hair trial, Erica was so wonderful and totally understood the look I wanted even though it was hard for me to articulate it. On the day of the wedding, she and her team were incredibly flexible and traveled to our hotel and were there not just on time, but early, and made everyone look SO beautiful and had us all done exactly on schedule. All of my bridesmaids were so thrilled with how they looked and loved working with Erica and her team. They were super friendly but professional and calm and made everyone feel at ease and listened to what the girls wanted for their hair/makeup. Erica is incredibly calm, sweet, and was such a pleasure to work with - my hair looked exactly how I wanted and everyone complemented on how beautiful it looked and the detail in it. If I still lived in NY, I would be seeing Erica on a regular basis to get my hair done. I loved working with her so much and am so happy she was part of my wedding day.

Having newly moved to the area I went to a pricy salon in Jersey that was the best in Bergen County. I decided to try Erica out and the compliments haven't stopped. I got a better cut than the other salon and 2 months after my haircut and I'm still getting compliments. People who have known me for years keep telling me what an amazing haircut I have. I love my hair when Erica does it and refuse to go to anyone else.

I usually don't get my hair or makeup done professionally, but my sister convinced me to go to Lief Beauty Boutique for my wedding. Erica did such a beautiful job on my hair and make-up on a short notice. She is amazing and created a hair design that was what I had dreamt of without even knowing what I was dreaming of! Her salon is beautiful and she is helpful, personal and professional. I highly recommend her!

Not only did I get a great haircut that made me feel beautiful, but the whole experience from the wash to the dry exceeded my expectations. I felt like I was at a spa! Erica is so lovely and talented. I found my salon! Thanks again.

Erica is amazing! They are a full service salon as well! Great estheticians!

I absolutely love Erica; she did miracles on my hair! With black hair she got it to a caramel brown... Will definitely go back to her! She's nice and describes her work before doing it on you and will try all she has with what you want. I took 4 hours and she took good care of me. I highly recommend her!

Erica did my hair and makeup for my wedding. She did an amazing, beautiful job. She gave me the most gorgeous braided up-do that was exactly what I had dreamt of!

First and foremost, I would like to say Erica is AMAZING. She helped to make my wedding day absolutely PERFECT. She had my bridal party & I looking exquisite. My husband couldn't keep his eyes off me. I can't thank Erica enough for making my vision come to life. I haven't met a stylist, as well as a makeup artist as vibrant & kind as she was. It was a delight to be around her. Erica, you are the best, thank you, thank you, thank you. If you are looking for someone for your wedding or for a haircut and color, she is the go to person! She's the hottest in Nyack town.

I love Lief Beauty Boutique! It was my one stop shop for my wedding (facial, hair- cut & color and make-up). Each service was done professionally and each time I left happy. My skin after the facial was glowing and even-toned and my hair and make-up were clean, classic, and noticeable without looking over done. The whole team is really friendly and the boutique is very welcoming and comfortable. I definitely recommend giving Lief a try!

This is by far my favorite salon in Rockland!

Erica provided hair services for me, as well as my bridal party on September 14th, 2013. She was absolutely wonderful! During our trial, she offered very useful advice, and she definitely knew what she was talking about. I also scheduled a cut with her because Erica said she wanted to shape my hair for my wedding style; it was a wonderful haircut! In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Erica coordinated with the makeup artist to set up actual appointment times for all the girls to avoid chaos on the wedding day. On the day of the wedding, Erica was the first person to arrive at the venue (where we were getting ready). Erica was calm and friendly throughout the entire day, and everything went smoothly thanks to the schedule she created. After Erica finished, she patiently waited about twenty minutes for the photographer to take pictures of me getting dressed so that she could secure my veil properly. Then, right as she was packing up, she said, "I see a curl I want to fix" and she heated up her iron again to touch up my hair. She even touched up a few girls who had not opted to have their hair professionally done! Erica is a meticulous professional, and her soft demeanor was very comforting on my wedding day. Throughout the planning process, she was also very easy to communicate with via email and phone. Most importantly, everyone's hair was BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for everything, Erica!

Erica is the best!!!! She made our amazing day wonderful by making all of us feel beautiful! She was a big part in our special day and you should use her if you are in the Rockland/Westchester/Northern NJ area.

Planning a wedding from another city was hard enough, but Erica and her team made the hair and makeup one less thing to worry about. My bridesmaids and I chose to have our hair done at the salon the morning of the wedding, and I couldn't have been happier with the results. Not only did Erica and her team use their creative license to take my vision for each girl's style and build on it, but they were able to create a unique yet unified look for all the girls. My hair and makeup were flawless and stayed on all day and all night, despite the morning rain. I highly recommend Lief Beauty Boutique for anyone looking for wedding hair and makeup that has a little more personality than a cookie-cutter style. It makes all the difference!

Erica did my hair and my bridal party's hair for my wedding. It came out beautiful! She made the process so relaxed and my hair came out exactly as I had imagined! Her timing was perfect and she traveled to the location of my wedding. I highly recommend Lief Beauty Boutique!

A friend referred me to Lief Beauty Boutique. I was immediately impressed by the decor and amazing style of the salon - which Erica did herself. I'm no fool, the beauty and invitation of this perfect little oasis could easily be smoke and mirrors. She could be just like the rest of them (the so-called "pros"). I seriously had my doubts as to how this super cool, totally down-to-earth, confident woman was going to fix my mom's choppy mullet cut. But as they say proof is in the pudding. And it was. Erica did an amazing job. Too amazing in fact that I booked an appointment for myself - hey, she said she knew curly hair. I am now a lifer. She knows her stuff. She ended up doing hair and make-up for my sister's wedding. We have been nothing but surprisingly pleased by Erica's talents. Finally! Thank You, Erica.

I worked with Erica on 3-16-13. She helped with hair and makeup for my bridesmaids, my mom, along with doing my hair and makeup, as I was the bride. I met with Erica 2 times before my wedding and I knew she was the person I wanted to use to help me feel and look beautiful for my Special Day. Erica and her staff were Amazing!! Erica did a great job in helping me figure out a style for my hair. The makeup she applied looked Fabulous!!! Erica traveled to the hotel I was staying at and was there for many hours taking her time to get everything just right!!! If you have a Special Event coming up, call Erica. She is wonderfully talented, as well as professional, courteous, kind, caring and overall just a great person to work with. I highly recommend Erica and her Services.

I worked with Erica for my hair and make up for my wedding and she was amazing! She was very patient through our trail runs as I was unsure of what to do with my hair. I wound up changing my mind at the end of the first trial so we did another two to play with ideas and then made sure we had it down right. She helped make some suggestions to make my hair more bridal and even provided advice on the type of hairpiece to get. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! She traveled to the location as well which was so helpful with the logistics and planning of the wedding day. I would highly recommend her for any wedding or special event.

The shop looks AMAZING!!!!!
