Greg has been doing my hair for 7 years and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Imagine my pure delight when he moved to NYC shortly after I did! I get so, so many compliments on the color of my highlights, how natural they look etc etc... Not just from friends and family, but people on the streets and even other hairdressers too! Not only is Greg meticulous about his work but he is efficient... The salon is amazing... It's superbly decorated, yet comfortable and not 'sceney'. All of my friends I have taken to see Greg, now never want to go elsewhere... Going to Ruggeri is just a divine experience.

Serenity and Sexy Hair

Greg has a way with sexy, glamorous 'dos that don't look like they're trying too hard. I went for a blowout and loved that my hair stayed shiny and super-bouncy for several days. The space is great too, the polar opposite of the big name salons with their pumping music and bored looking assistants -- here you feel like you're in your own private pied a terre, with Nina Simone crooning in the background and all the attention on you! Looking forward to going back for some of that hair ER on my woefully neglected color...

I do not think I could rave enough about Greg Ruggeri's work! First time I ever went there I, the desperate client, had ruined my hair.. or so I thought. He completely fixed me, after taking me in at 10pm till 1am, when I had never even met him! The ambiance is amazing due to his partner, everything about the salon makes you feel at home and relaxed. They serve you to make you as comfortable as possible. Have a 10 am appointment and not get seen till 12:00pm? That most certainly does NOT happen here. They are always on schedule, and if they are a few minutes behind they let you know. I have never received as many compliments from his work, it is completely worth every penny! Not to mention he is so down to earth and a great person to talk to.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
