Rave Reviews

— Best Hairdresser—

“Most amazing place I have been to in the Capital District. VERY pleasant atmosphere and just wonderful people. Very family oriented and friendly employees. DEFINITELY worth the trip from Delmar!!”

Jamie Swirsky in Delmar, NY

— A Great Place to Achieve Your Style —

“This is a beautiful place to relax and get your hair done. Look at the chandelier and the curve of the work stands. See the beautiful woods and tile. It’s the place of a true artist. They serve you coffee/ tea and cater to you. However, what is more important – is that you can get a cut and color to rival any of the salons of NYC. Aiman is absolutely amazing. I found her through a friend and travel the almost 2 hours to have her take care of my hair. Try them – you won’t be sorry.”

Valerie M in Esopus, NY

— I have had only wonderful experiences at Namia —

I started seeing Aiman, the owner, there more than two years ago when I wanted to grow out my dyed hair and let it go natural. She was respectful and willing to work with me on this, which was a great relief, as other stylists only wanted to talk me into continuing to dye my silvering hair. She gave me excellent haircuts every time, working with the texture and color of my hair and treating me like her favorite customer (I think she treats everyone that way!) . . . The salon is painted in warm colors and has a modern, open feel to it. The products are all Aveda, and if you know anything about Aveda, I don’t have to say another word. The salon smells wonderful (due to the products), they play an exotic blend of dance/ambient/ world music, the receptionist and assistants are all super polite and professional. I enjoy my visits to Namia and feel they are worth every penny — I’ve had my hair styled in cities from San Francisco, to New York, and Philadelphia and I really recommend Namia here in the Capital Region.



Aiman is without a doubt the best hair stylist I have ever had in my entire life! I currently live in Europe and actually fly back to Albany to have my hair done because Aiman is the only person who I trust with it. She is the most incredible colorist, always gives the perfect cut, and her blowouts are incomparable. Unlike the majority of hairstylists who get chop happy as soon as the scissors hit their hands, Aiman listens to her clients and understands all types of hair, giving her the ability to give you the best look. Not to mention, the entire team and staff working at Namia is such a pleasure to be around! I constantly receive compliments about my coloring and have people inquiring all the time about where I get my hair done! Needless to say I highly recommend them!


— Best Salon Around —

Namia Salon is the best salon I have ever gone to and believe me, I have tried many. Aiman is a talented hairdresser. She gave me the perfect haircut to suit my face shape and hair color that no other hairdresser could seem to achieve beautiful blond hair. My hair is no longer a faded out blond with horrible orange highlights. When your hair is great, you feel great! The atmosphere at Namia is very comfortable, yet upscale. The music playing is interesting. The entire staff at Namia is warm, friendly and professional. Every customer is important and they make sure you are happy. My only disappointment is that it took me so long to find this salon. Getting my hair done used to be a chore. Now I look forward to my next appointment with Aiman at Namia!
