One of my favorite authors, Robin Sharma, put it best, “people do business with people they like”. That right there, succinctly sums up the secret to Hector Bodre’s success. Bodre Cut and Color Room (4174 Broadway) has managed to survive 2 recessions as well as thriving in a crowded field with the ubiquity of salons Uptown, due to his winning formula of providing unmatched customer service and creating an ambiance of sophistication and elegance. As Hector Bodre says, “bringing downtown Uptown”. To his clientele, Hector Bodre is more that just their hairdresser, he is also their friend and confidante. Thanks to his personal attention to his clients and his staff, Bodre Cut and Color Room will be around for a long time as they have just renewed their lease for another 5 years. Long live Bodre Cut and Color Room! But don’t take our word for it, hear it from Mr. Bodre himself, after we interrogated him for some answers….
