I lived in NYC for 6 years and for the first few years before I found Arthur, I was going to one salon after another paying a lot of $ for a haircut and always leaving disappointed. I have long, straight, fine hair and not many people know how to cut it in a way to keep its shape, volume, etc. What usually happened is that 99% of the hairstylists tried to convince me that I need to cut my hair short - and that's the only way that my hair would look good. Well, let's just say that after meeting Arthur, I knew that they were lying - they were just saying that because they themselves either didn't know how to do it or didn't want to take the time to listen to what I wanted. What I found in Arthur is a hairstylist who not only listens to what I want, but someone who will also be very honest with me with his expertise if he feels that I'm way off. Time after time, I always left his salon feeling beautiful and always received countless compliments on my hair...which never used to happen!
After 2 years of having become spoiled by Arthur's haircuts, I have recently moved to VA...and after 6 months, I decided that I'll just make quarterly visits to NYC and get my hair cut! I come to NYC often to visit friends anyways...
Arthur is without a doubt one of the best, if not the best, hairstylists in NYC. I'm just sorry that I dont' live there anymore..
