Here's the story; I just started a new job a week ago and with the holidays coming up so quickly, I knew that I couldn't put my long unruly hair on the back burner any longer.


I went here for my color and I was not so happy with the results. It did not come out the way I wanted it to. What bothered me the most was that the shampoo guy kept trying to get...

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/12/2012

After 7 years of coming here, I will not be returning. I am very torn in writing this review but was put off by my service and so feel that it should be done. more

Help for that frizzy hair!! Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment 5/5/2010

I am in complete ""awe"" of this treatment. I have fought with unruly, fried, broken, frizzy hair my entire life. I have tried EVERYTHING! This is the first thing that I am so excited to say has worked and it is like MAGIC. To anyone that is skeptical, it is worth one try and you will see it is for real. Life will be so much easier without fighting so much with my hair. And the salon experience was positive - very good atmosphere and friendly! Pros: Daniel is an experienced stylist and very patient-Great work Cons: Highly recommended! Try it to find out! more

Best hair salon I ever visited 4/22/2010

A co-worker (who always had enviably gorgeous hairstyle) recommended that place and I was not disappointed. Angelo Avanzi is not only a fantastic stylist, but a charming and hospitable host. He is inventive and confident. I trusted him right away. He just looked at me in bright light and an hour later my mousy brown hair was gorgeous red! I loved it!. Today I got the most beautiful, subtle caramel highlights and I love my hair even more. It's an amazing place with great ambiance and wonderful staff. Also the location is great - one block away from Bloomingdale's (N, R, W, 4, 5, 6 also go there). Highly recommended! Pros: Angelo's skills, Angelo's personality, location Cons: On the pricey side (but it is normal for Manhattan) more

Juan is the best stylist by far! 5/16/2009

Juan has moved back to Avanzi and I cannot be happier. He is the most professional stylist that I have ever had style my hair. I teach high school, and after returning to school the next day, my students told me that I had the best haircut they had ever seen on me. For a high school student to notice, that impressive. Pros: Fast, Friendly, Professsional more

Very Impressed with Salon and Hairdresser Jackie 3/16/2009

Was visiting New York from Massachusetts and visited this salon and was very impressed. I got my hair done by Jackie and was very pleased with the results. She was fast and accurate with what I asked for. Got my hair dyed and highlight and was very happy with my end result. Thank you Jackie. I would recommend her anyone who is looking for a good hairdresser. Pros: Great Color Cons: What are the drawbacks? more

The Greatest Overall Salon Experience Ever! 2/21/2009

Out of all the salons I have visited, today was the best salon experience I have EVER had. ( and I've been to many many salons) I always get a little nervous trying a new salon but starting from the shampoo chair, it was the best anyone has ever washed my hair and the scalp massage was incrediable. I was so relaxed! Then Angelo cut my hair. It was most definately the best hair cut I have ever gotten. Most of the salons I have visited, cut hair with very similar techniques and I am never crazy about the way stylists cut into the hair. Angelo had a technique that I've never seen before and was amazing to see him in action. He had such precision and passion for what he was doing and my hair never looked better. The salon was beautiful, with a great view and it was very clean. That's one of my biggest things. I would highly reccomend this salon to anyone, the staff was very talented and hospitiable and I left excited to show off my new hair. Everyone who saw me tonight noticed my hair right away and all said how amazing it was! The location was great too, right across from bloomingdales and we got lunch at Patsy's next door. I will defintely be returning again soon! Pros: Location, Products, Talent, Cleanliness, Value Atmosphere more

The Best Colorist in New York-Andrea at Avanzi Salon! 12/31/2008

Andrea has colored my hair for several years. She brings out the best in color and highlights. I always receive several compliments on my color. Andrea has an eye for color. I've referred several people to her-most recently a friend from Europe. Thanks Andrea! more

The Perfect Hair Salon! 6/11/2008

I am actually the previous tenant that recommended Kathleen to Avanzi and am so glad she was happy with them, but I don't know how anyone would not be! Giusseppe colored my hair for several years and he was amazing. The staff is so friendly and warm, and everyone comes out looking beautiful! What more could you want? It's in a great location near Bloomingdale's (even better for me when I lived in the same building!), so go get your hair done, do a little shopping, and have a great day on the Upper East Side! You'll be happy you did, and look fabulous! Pros: Giuseppe, the salon, the location and the people! more

I went to Avanzi recently for color and cut and I was very pleased. I loved Angelo not only because he did a great job and my hair looks amazing, but also because he listened to me and gave me really good advice. Recommended without reservations!! Pros: professionalism, service more

Wonderful massage 11/15/2006

I recently visited this salon and had a wonderful experience. I started with a great massage and had my nails done then I had a cut. I loved my hair as well as everythibg else I had done. Gloria gave me one of the best massage I have ever had, from the tips of my toes to the top of my head all my stress was released. Pros: Great massage and manicure by Gloria Cons: no cons here more

Best Color in City 9/23/2006

Years ago when I moved to New York, the previous tenant in my apartment left me a note that said this was best salon in the city. Giuseppe cut and colored my hair for many years after this. I have since moved out of New York, but am always tempted to fly back just to see Giuseppe I envy New Yorkers for having this salon. Kathleen Hall more

Not Impressed 9/8/2006

I went here for my color and I was not so happy with the results. It did not come out the way I wanted it to. What bothered me the most was that the shampoo guy kept trying to get me to buy overpriced hair care products that I did not even need! He kept on and on about how they were from Italy, I was so annoyed. I will not be returning here. Pros: Not Today Cons: To much sales pressure more
