Upper West Side stylist Robert Stuart did stints at Henri Bendel and Vidal Sassoon before opening his affordable, eponymous salon in 1983, offering cuts, color, blowouts, and updos. The space has a communal atmosphere, with warm maroon walls and five close-quartered work stations; it’s not unusual for patrons to join in on the next booth’s conversation. Stylists start with an in-depth discussion of clients’ hair texture and typical styling routines before sending them to change into a unisex satin robe. Products range from Japanese companies Spice and Magic Moves to Chi and the Italian Framesi. Securing an appointment with Stuart requires a few days’ notice—his cuts start at $65, while services with other stylists begin at a wallet-friendly $35.
