Finally found a stylist!! Arturo is incredible!

Husband and wife both received styles / cuts on recent visit to NYC. Chose Arturo based on online reviews and overall approach to hair as outlined on his website. Arturo truly understands hair and explains how best to work with what you have. Both of us felt as if cut was best received (ever) and are planning future trips to city for hair needs - being from Colorado, this will be quite a feat. Thank you, Arturo!! We can't wait to see you again.

You MUST try the Kerastase conditioning treatments!!!

I admit I was skeptical -- my hair has always been unruly with a tendency to frizz. And nothing ever seemed to make much of a difference. But Arturo, genius that he is, suggested the perfect Kerastase conditioning treatment for my hair type & I'm so glad I agreed. My hair is now softer, shinier, has more body & is so much easier to handle. And it was such a relaxing experience, like a spa treatment. Defintely go for it!

Arturo makes hair care easy....I've gone to him consistently for the past year or so for color, cut and DIY. Scheduling with him is as easy as sending an email and he is always available (via email) to answer any hair-specific questions (which is something NO OTHER hair salon or hair professional has ever done). He does everything so precise and really cares about you and your hair. His DIY help has literally changed my "hair-life" and it's just been a pleasure dealing with him in every way! Thank you Arturo!!!!

TV-Gorgeous Hair

Arturo has styled my hair for broadcast work on every morning show on television, and each time it looked fresh, fabulous and glamorous. He can blow, twist and pin your locks to stunning result ~ in ways you never thought possible, and cut, snip and color like a true artist: unleashing the beauty within. If you're searching for a new look but timid to try someone new, you simply NEVER have to fret about a bad cut with Arturo. He knows what your hair needs according to shape, texture, weight and color, and can offer several suggestions before he begins one snip. Quite simply, Arturo is a styling GOD and the answer to your hair prayers.

ARTURO is the ONLY stylist to touch my hair in over 20 years, and each time I am more impressed than the time before. Always keeping me fresh and in style. Arturo cuts are impecable and so easy to care for even weeks later, a sign of a true artist. Discovering Arturo and visiting his personal upscale salon was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Do yourself a favor, visit Arturo ...and Bring a friend!

Styling On You

  • No, I would not go back!

As a woman of color, I continue to be amazed by Arturo's talent and professionalism. I'm relatively adventurous when it come to my hair and Arturo NEVER disappoints. He's not only able to get me in and out of his chair on a lunch break, but also coifs my hair in stylish cuts that work curly and straight. He's a perfectionist who is not afraid to try something different and always respectful of my time. PRICELESS.

Arturo is fabulous!

A friend of mine who is a long-time customer of Arturo's recommended him. I was a veteran of cheap NYC haircuts, so I had no idea what to expect when I went to his sleek studio. It turns out that he is worth every penny. He gave me the best haircut I've ever gotten, bar none, and my hair continued to look good for months after the haircut. He is also a delightful person to talk to and was very attentive. I would recommend him to anyone. I look forward to going back!

Arturo .. his personal approach

Arturo is amazing working with my thick curly long hair, highlights and lowlights, excellent cut every time which always results in hair-rejuvenation for me, when I leave a session with him. The colors he puts in grow out so naturally that it is not noticeable at all!! The cut gives my hair a new great professional style where the shape lasts. I had tried other hair places since arriving in New York but was not happy with the results, but now I found Arturo through a friend, and enjoy my visits every time, from conversation, cut, color, surroundings - to advice, maintanance and ideas.

Consummate Coiffure!

In the words of Tina Turner, Arturo is simply the best! He is the only one I will trust to style and cut my hair and is a great referral. Before going to Arturo, I thought one stylist was as good as another. How hard is it to give someone a good haircut? That could not have been further from the truth. My hair looks amazing everytime and I get a lot of compliments! He is very flexible and accommodating with his schedule as well. Additionally, Arturo has great personality and the time at his studio flies by too fast. I highly recommend Arturo!
