Went there because my friend recommended it. I wanted something fun but left with a soccer mom haircut. Didn't know how to properly style curly hair. Pros: Friendly staff

Ask for Heidi!! 2/11/2012

Tortola is a very low key and pleasant salon. Heidi is, by far, the best stylist out there. She is attentive, insightful and has an incredible memory. If I bring in a picture of a hair style, she is able to replicate it perfectly. I get compliments on my hair everywhere I go - from complete strangers on the subway to neighbors at home. I highly recommend Tortola Salon, but most importantly, Heidi is the reason why! more

Found the perfect hair salon 1/21/2012

I used to dread getting my hair done (weird cuts, weird colors, stylists with attitude) but have been happy since I started going to Tortola many years ago. Both Tom and Jo are great people. They give good cuts, good color that lasts and doesn’t damage my hair, and good advice about what works and what doesn’t. I brought my teen-aged daughter there when she over-peroxided her hair and they saved it. The salon is comfortable and pleasant. I highly recommend Tortola. . more

Michael is an artist 1/4/2012

I have been going to Michael for about a year now. He is the only stylist I have ever had where I was confident enough in his judgment to walk in and say ""I totally trust you do whatever you want with my hair."" Even though I have moved out of the neighborhood, I will continue to use Michael for as long as I live in New York. more


A terrific place for all things hair 4/5/2011

I have been going to Tortola for some 15 years and can""t imagine going any where else. Jo cuts and colors my hair--beautifully--and is a lovely person to deal with on every level. I feel privileged to be a Tortola client. more

Best High Quality Men's Haircut in Manhattan 12/3/2010

Tortola is an amazing salon. The ambience is very welcoming and the staff are very personable and professional. I have personally been coming to see Joey at Tortola since 2005. After living in the city for more than 9 years, I have finally found a reliable, consistent, high quality men's stylist. So much so, I've been dedicated to him ever since. Unlike other shops, Joey specifically tailors each cut, provides recommendations on hair trends, and is honest if the style you choose is not for you (thank god, as he has saved me from embarassment many times). The salon comes highly recommended, as well as Joey! more

haircut 10/2/2010

Joey's my go-to guy for men's haircuts. He's ever reliable, gets the hair cut done quickly while actually giving you a pretty good haircut without the chopped-up look that other salons or shops end up doing with men's hairstyles. Very highly recommended. more

With Deep Gratitude 5/9/2010

I went to see Joe at the recommendation of a friend. I had had my hair colored at a different salon and whatever the guy did, he made my hair MATTE! Yes, MATTE!. Imagine my horror when after giving a lecture in front of 50 people my friend told me I had the worst hair color ever! Ug. She told me about Tortola Salon and told me to go see Jo. Well I did, and I'm glad I didn't waste any time. Not only did Jo salvage my hair color, but he salvaged my self-esteem. I will only EVER go to Jo for my hair color. In this turbulent world, it is so nice to know there is something and someone one can rely on. Pros: Jo, Tom, and the Entire Staff Cons: There Are None more

LOVE LOVE LOVE 3/21/2010

I always look forward to my appointments with Jo. He does an amazing job with my color - I've been having my hair colored for over ten years, but get more compliments in the past year that I've been going to Jo than ever before. He really cares about the health of my hair and is very attentive to my needs. i would recommend him to anyone (but if they keep me from getting appointments I'm definitely going to get mad, so... :)). very trustworthy and impeccable taste, for anyone in need of a change. great, clean, friendly salon, fabulous products. Pros: great colorists who really care about your hair more

Color, Cuts & Conversation 3/19/2010

After having tried a number of salons I was thrilled when I finally found Tortola. From my experience Jo, an owner, is the best at Color, Cuts and Conversation. He always considers my ideas about my hair and about the variety of topics we discuss. Also, my husband gets a great haircut from Tom, also and owner. Pros: work hard to accommodate my busy schedule Cons: none for me more

Reply to following post. 3/17/2010

The following reviewer is a person who was asked not to return to our salon for a number of reasons. She did not have her haircut here as stated. Nothing that she said reflects the style, atmosphere and clientele of our salon. We have a great client base, from the youngest to the oldest who love coming here. We are happy to work on all of them. This review was written with malice not the truth. more

For the much older set 3/3/2010

I would recommend this place to my grandmother. The owners do not in any way attempt to try to gear the service or styles to anyone younger. They advertise as a friendly Tribeca neighborhood salon but it was not friendly at all if you are not in the owners age group. I made a few attempts at some conversation but I was made to feel very uncomfortable. Major generation gap I guess.\r The color and cut I got at Tortola (by each of the owners) were also very ""old school"". The prices were not high but just standard and should be much lower for what you get there. I had to have both my cut and color corrected elsewhere so it ended up costing quite a bit. Pros: Not crowded Cons: General Atmosphere of the place more

best color and cut 11/22/2009

Jo Castagna, an owner, is an artist of hair color-my highlights are amazing! His cuts are meticulous. All of my friends now go to him. Lovely person, discusses what you want, really works with you. I've been going to Tortola for 25 years. Pros: relaxed and friendly atmosphere Cons: none for me more

Ask for Joey 8/18/2009

I've had my own hair cut by Joey for years and have recommended him to many friends and family members who have all been repeat customers as well. He can handle any look: long, short, clean-cut, punky, whatever you are going for. Pros: Versatility and great atmosphere Cons: not open past 7 PM more

Great find in Tribeca 5/28/2009

I have been going to Tortola for a couple of years now, and am very pleased with the way that Joey cuts my hair. He encouraged me to let it go ""natural"", and enhance my curls without a lot of daily styling time and effort needed. I'm sure that he's just as talented with other types of hair. Pros: Relaxed atmosphere with excellent stylists more

Joey is great at any length! 5/15/2009

Joey has been cutting my hair for several years much to my delight. He has cut my hair short, helped me grow it longer and even shaved my head during chemotherapy! Joey has cut my wigs, also long and short. He is very detail oriented and no hair goes unnoticed! Joey is honest and LISTENS which is helpful in select the right style for any occasion. Thanks Joey, you are a true pro. Pros: Cuts and styles all lengths of hair with ease! Cons: Joey doesn't do color. more

Best Color 4/11/2009

Ive just gotten the best color Ive ever had!! I went to Tortola Salon and had my hair colored by Michael. He was great. He gave me a few different choices and suggestions. We decided to darken my color to a deep brown and the he put in a sprinkling of highligt around the face. It was exactly what I needed and my husband loves it and he doesnt usually notice.. lol. I couldnt be happier. Pros: Finally a good colorist more

great place , recommended! 4/9/2009

i went here today for the first time because the salon was recommended to me by a friend.\r i asked for heidi but since she was booked all day i got michael who was super nice and friendly and we both came to a decision about my hair.\r there was a bit of confusion when i booked because i was accidentally placed on the cancellation list instead of the normal list, but i was offered a spot 30 minutes later so i didnt mind coming back.\r \r it turns out they also have teen rates, $45 for wash/cut/blowdry so it was a really good deal for me!\r \r highly recommended, i'm definately going back here next time. Pros: rates for teens, friendly staff, good location Cons: none really more

Great price ~ Great haircut! 4/1/2009

Michael is awesome. He really knows a woman's head... great haircut all around. I would definitely recommend him! Pros: Michael more

Not great 3/28/2009

Went there because my friend recommended it. I wanted something fun but left with a soccer mom haircut. Didn't know how to properly style curly hair. Pros: Friendly staff more
