Salon Today's 2013 Salon of the Year, Posh is located between the Kew Gardens and Forest Hills neighborhoods of Queens, with a client base stretching through New York City, Long Island and New Jersey.

Irina Patrascu founded Posh in 2012 after years of styling hair in the Kew Gardens and Forest Hills neighborhoods of NYC, making her dream a reality and giving clients the salon they deserve.

At Posh, we believe in the best: hand-picked products that will leave you with rich, full texture, color and style as well as a team of exclusively senior stylists who stay on the cutting edge of the salon industry.

We also believe that a hair studio should be more than just another stop on your to-do list, but a place that you feel welcome and are able to relax and escape from the daily grind, all while getting the pampering that you have earned for yourself and your hair.

Our commitment to quality extends beyond your trips into the salon as we only sell premium hair care products that we have used and approved ourselves. We are also committed to treating the environment with the same care that we treat hair, cutting our power output by over half since the salon's inception, through energy efficient practices.

The next time you need to get your hair styled, don't settle for mediocre products and stylists who treat you like just another customer. Come experience Posh, the salon you deserve.

You say you use the best products, but is there really a difference?
Absolutely. Some products contain certain chemicals that simply aren't good for your hair. Many times, other salons may use these products to save a buck or two. Just because it smells great, doesn't mean it is high quality. At Posh, you can rest assured that we know which products create healthy hair and results that last. Any product that we use or sell is one that we have tried and approved on our own hair.
How do you define short, medium and long hair for your price ranges?
Short hair we define as hair that is very common with the men short styles or pixie cuts. Medium hair length is understood as hair that is longer than the traditional men cut but not exceeding shoulder length. Long hair we define as hair exceeding shoulder length. Furthermore, if one of our stylists quotes you a price at the beginning of your styling session, we will never come back afterwards and charge you something higher. At Posh, we believe that you deserve a team that is always upfront and honest.
What is the best way to make an appointment?
Feel free to give us a call at 718-VIP-POSH. If you are already in the Kew Gardens neighborhood, you can stop by to schedule an appointment. We also accommodate walk-in appointments, but we cannot guarantee availability for walk-ins.
Why are you closed on Mondays?
Mondays are used to help make the Posh experience even better. We will bring in industry experts to show our team cutting-edge tips, methods and tools for achieving the perfect look. We also use this time to give our staff a break so that they are fresh to deliver the best salon experience available in New York City.
What is your policy on junior stylists?
For the same reasons that we take Mondays off to train in the newest industry techniques, we make sure that any training stylist at Posh Hair Studio meets our lofty standards before working with clients. Should a junior stylist be working on your hair, you will be notified prior to your appointment and can rest assured that they have the tools to give you the salon experience you expect and deserve from Posh.
