Editorial review from Citysearch 7/10/2012

I've had great styling experiences with Amy, attention to detail, understanding of what to do that works for me and makes me look terrific, I've got the best hair cuts of my life from Amy. The salon is roomy and easy going but very professional, excellent all around. more

Yaz is the best 1/13/2011

If you are lazy like me but want a cut that's cool and edgy, Yaz at Arte Salon is the way to go. I wanted a salon close to home that wasn't overly pretentious. I stopped by Arte on a fluke and ended up getting Yaz. He made my ""long layers"" look less midwest and more LES. It was a lucky break, and I'm definitely going back. more

Tim made me feel like new woman 12/22/2009

I went to Tim as a referral from my boss. I was so happy and pleased with my cut. He gave me the volume and shape that fit my face and frame. Not only did i look great when I left but the cut he gave me is so easily reproducable. Every day when I do my hair I think of Tim cause it always looks great. Thanks Tim!!! Pros: Tim is amazing more

People are right about Tim 12/14/2009

So I went to Tim due to all the positive feedback on him on here. I have to say thank you to every one because i got the best haircut I have ever had in my 34 years. Every thing that was said about him on here was right. He is such a perfectionist to detail! I enjoyed watching him work and was really relaxed during the cut. Thanks everyone and thanks Tim!!! Pros: Great Cut! more

Tim Cadman is the BEST BEST BEST 12/9/2009

I have been going to Tim for years now and I just wanted to write something about him. He is by far the best stylist I have ever been to. He PERFECTS the 'zen' haircut experience. I have referred several people to Tim and everyone is happy. Tim is a perfectionist and it shows in every cut. I would highly recommend him!!!! Pros: Best Haircut ever and ever more

Tim Cadman @ Arte = Magic 12/2/2009

I've been having my hair cut by Tim Cadman at Arte for almost a year now and will never go anywhere else. Quite simply, he is talented, kind and has an intuitive sense of what looks good. \r \r I had tried a number of salons in Manhattan and felt like I was getting bad haircuts for way too much $$$. Then I stepped through the door at Arte into a haven of stylish calm. Tim consulted in depth with me about what I wanted from my new haircut and brought his own creative ideas to the table, but made me feel very comfortable overall. It's so rare to find a hairdresser in Manhattan who genuinely takes time and actually cares about the end result. I was so impressed!\r \r Since that first day I’ve gotten to experience Tim's talent and zen-like cutting technique a number of times. I always leave Arte as a happy customer. \r \r The salon itself is artfully designed and everyone from the hairwashers to the front desk staff to the owner makes you feel welcome. I cannot say enough good things about Tim Cadman and Arte. \r \r Go! What are you waiting for?!?!\r Pros: professional cuts from a passionate hairdresser more

Jemma is AMAZING! 11/30/2009

I literally tell my friends my hair is so healthy and long because my dear Jemma cuts my hair with love! I adore her and will see no one else!\r \r Love Christina :) Pros: Best cut and color! more

Joseph channels Edward Scissorhands 11/11/2009

I was in desperate need of an updated look without losing the length that I'd worked so hard to get. After almost 4 years of ""boy short"" hair, I decided to grow it out.. I had made it through the weird and funky stages to a respectable shoulder length.. but that's it.. My hair just sort of hung there with no life or personality. I tried explaining to my stylist back in LA what I wanted and just wasn't able to communicate it to her. When I arrived in the city, my girlfriend was singing Joseph's praises and booked me an appointment. When I arrived, the receptionist and Joseph greeted me immediately. They were really friendly. Joesph escorted me back to have my hair washed.. it was the BEST hair washing/massage ever.. I believe Miyuki is her name.. Next, I was taken to Joesph's chair.. he sat me down and began to really analyze my hair, taking note that I had A LOT of hair but very fine hair, which if you cut it wrong, it just sort of expands out.. He took his time getting to know how it fell, where my cowlicks were, where it flipped naturally and were it hung straight. Then he began cutting.. And it truly was like watching Edward Scissorhands go to work.. I didn't have to explain what I wanted, he got it. He carved my hair.. like Michaelangelo carving David.. he went in and cut the tiniest of strands, thinned it out so that it wasn't so bulky AND saved my length.. After drying and styling, he fine tuned his design and I couldn't believe it.. it was so subtle but so lovely.. I was more than happy.. I can continue to grow it out and have the beautiful layers.. Oh and I haven't even mentioned the compliments I've gotten.. I am grateful and appreciate the time and patience Joseph spent on my hair. The entire staff, especially him was extremely genuine and friendly. He definitely has my recommendation. Pros: expert at cutting; patient; friendly Cons: Their in New York, I'm in L.A. more

A Fabulous Downtown Salon 9/4/2009

I've been going to Arte Salon for two years and adore it. I was recommended to Miyuki through a coworker and love her work. She has remarkable attention to detail with both cut and color. I've honestly never had anything but a great experience there. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere exudes understated downtown chic. Love that they introduced me to Kerastase products, which have transformed my hair. Can't say enough good things about Arte and the wonderful Miyuki. Pros: Miyuki, Modern Cuts, Great Color, Kerastase Products more

Amazing Haircut Every Time!!! 8/13/2009

Arte is the only place I will cut my hair from now on. I have tried other places and they don't even come close. Disa is a miracle worker. She manages to cut my overly thick hair into a perfect bob every time! And she must be a mind reader because whether I want it shorter, with bangs, longer, growing out my bangs, it always comes out exactly as I wanted it to be. I moved to Boston but I come back to NY for my haircuts. Everyone who works there is amazing. Very down to earth and honest. Not your average phony ""oh your hair looks great"". Honest, nice, and friendly people. If you haven't tried Arte you MUST! Pros: Best haircut anywhere, The nicest people work there more

The Secret Is Out 7/30/2009

Hair dreams DO COME TRUE....they can happen to you! Ladies & Gents- I haven't had a minute to write my fantabulous review, (as I have been meaning to for weeks) due to the fact that I have been bombarded DAILY by endless compliments, ever since Joe got a hold of me and revamped my precious locks. I walk down the street and people start following me just to ask me about my hair - OK, it's getting a little nuts, peoples. I have a few minutes to spare right before the world attacks again, begging for the name is this wonder stylist. So, to all of you crazy NY'ers who need to be in the know.... Here it is: Joseph, owner of Arte Salon & hair stylist extraordinaire is my little secret. Now, go and shout it from the mountain tops!!! - Forever A Devoted Fan & Follower Of Joe Pros: Joe! Joe! Joe! Cons: None What-So-Ever more

Great hair cut! 7/7/2009

I've been growing my hair long for two years to donate, and was quite nervous when it came to chopping off all 13 inches. Upon a friend's recommendation, I made an appointment with Joseph. The salon itself is very relaxing and calming - not an ounce of pretentiousness which I was grateful for. As soon as I got in the chair, Joseph put me right at ease and gave me a fantastic short bob which I loved instantly. Even better - my husband loved it too! Now, a month later, I'm heading back to Arte Salon to maintain my new short style (though the cut has grown out quite nicely). I'm trying Amy this time, but one thing's for sure - I'll be heading back to Joseph's chair next time I update my style. Pros: Relaxed Atmosphere, Friendly Staff more

Mornings have become so much easier! 3/5/2009

Having my hair cut by somebody new is a difficult step. Once I like a stylist, I am not easily swayed to go elsewhere. Unfortunately, my regular stylist left town and after letting my hair go far too long without maintenance, I finally followed a friend's recommendation and went to Joseph at Arte. He really listened to my issues, suggested solutions and made sure that I was comfortable before starting to cut, promising not to cut too much. I like my hair long, but it just did not look good. The new layers give it a much lighter feel and it is so much healthier. Where before it took me forever to get ready in the morning, now I can just do a quick blow-dry to smooth out the front a bit and I'm on my way. Even if I just let it dry naturally it looks all right. That has never happened before.\r The salon is beautiful and one feels really welcome there. Joseph, the owner, has a fun and charming personality. Actually, everyone there is friendly and helpful. While the decor is refined and modern, everybody walks around without attitude. A cool blend of laid-back vibe and professional know-how. Also, they carry Kerastase products, which I love. That stuff just works and is well worth the investment. Pros: friendly and professional Cons: haven't found any more

incredible haircut 2/12/2009

I've been going to see Timothy Cadman for years, who has been at Arte for a few years now. I just wanted to post something about him because he is THE BEST haircut I've gotten in NYC after going to all the big name people for long before that. He is a true artist and with the blowdry his haircut lasts about 2 hours because he takes so much time and care with making it perfect. I joke with him because when I'm lazy and/or times are lean, he may see me only once every 3 or 4 months-- this is the measure of a fantastic cut. Run, don't walk to see him... it's well worth it. more

High quality...down to earth. 2/9/2009

The bright, relaxed atmosphere was as inviting as the warm & professional staff. Joe, the owner, made me feel comfortable in his chair & really took the time necessary to understand my hair & deliver a fantastic cut. He was graceful & meticulous, not to mention a real nice guy. From the warm reception, to the relaxing shampoo, to the amazing cut, I loved the whole experience & walked out that lovely salon feeling a thousand times better than when I had walked in. They even sent me a follow up card to thank me for coming to the salon. Such great customer service! Arte is a high quality salon that's down to earth...it's a treasure for tresses! Pros: Relaxed atmosphere, Professionalism, Service, Fair prices Cons: I love this salon! more

A Superb NYC Salon 2/3/2009

Totally worth it; owner and staff are very friendly, down to earth, and cool. Love this place. Stylists are excellent, prices are in line with the quality and very reasonable, and the tunes rock. more

Best Haircut 1/8/2009

I've been going to Arte Salon for over 20 years.\r Joe, the owner, gives the best haircut. \r He is meticulous and checks each area many times.\r The other people working there also seem very skilled.\r His personality is shown throughout the place because everyone is pleasant and nice.\r I highly recommend Arte and Joe. It is the only place for a haircut.\r more

I HEART TIM! 12/4/2008

I've been following Tim for 3 years. He is an amazing stylist and a gentle soul. An appointment with Tim is an experience, not just a haircut. His styles are created around your personality and your hair type. I can't recommend him highly enough.\r \r And Arte is just wonderful. So relaxing - truly feels like anyone is welcome. They host you...like you are in someone's home. (even offering you wine and/or coffee). :-)\r \r Call the salon now and book an appointment with Tim!\r \r He is a professional who will ever-so-gently let you know if a requested style just won't work with your hair. An honest professional - imagine that. To the critic who gave Tim a bad review - don't you know that the first rule in what not to do when getting a haircut is bring in a picture!??! As much as you may idolize a haircut, your hair is not the same nor will ever be the same as what you see in a commerical, ad, or otherwise. Shame on you for expecting otherwise. more

Great haircut and so relaxing 10/20/2008

I got a haircut from Tim a few months ago and it is growing in so well. I really appreciated the time and precision he took to cut long layers (I never knew what the deal was with layers if you have long hair but now I do!). It was a really hot August day when I came in and being heavily pregnant and tired, I liked how nice-but-mellow TIm was. It was very relaxing to not make conversation and I dozed as he focused really intensely on my hair. It's such a nice salon and there is no big fanfare or pretension. Can't wait to go back. more

wonderful stylists, relaxed atmosphere, great owner 9/16/2008

My entire (all designers, read: extremely picky) family followed Amy here from her former salon in the EV. We love her precise and edgy haircuts plus her sparkly personality. The salon owner and staff is always offering a water, or glass of wine and are extremely friendly. Its an oasis in Nolita where most services could be depersonalized. Highly recommended. Pros: excellent value, friendly staff more
