I had one of the best experiences in the history of my hair at the Robert Stuart Salon. As an apprehensive custome, my fear was quickly alleviated by Robert's expertise. He considered the texture of my hair, facial structure, and style desire before giving recommendations, which turned into a great haircut. In addition, the atmosphere is much better than many ues salons; everyone is friendly and attentive, a welcome change from previous experiences. Free bangs trims and great customer service round up the perfect haircut. Great place!

This upper-west-side treasure has a well deserved longevity. I became a customer when I lived across the street and have continued to return despite moves to Washington Heights and Brooklyn. Why? The bottom line is a great hair cut. I am afflicted with the kind of curls that can transform into sage brush on a humid, August day and Robert has managed not only tame my wild head but,also to completely transform it on occassion. The staff is hospitable and friendly and amazingly talented as well.\r
In a city where a good hair salon frequently involves being humiliated by staff with an attitude or the choice between paying rent or maintaing your hair, this salon has managed to stay a mom & pop shop without staying trapped in the past. It's worth the trip from any borrough.\r

I can't even begin to express my gratitude to Robert Stuart and what he did with my hair. I've lived in new york for many years now and finding the right stylist for my hair seemed near impossible until I came to the Robert Stuart Salon and met Robert. Unlike most hairdressers he spoke with me before my hair cut to ask and talk about what I was looking for and what I wanted and sure did he listen! While I am not one to usually compliment myself, I have to say that my hair looks absolutely beautiful and all the credit goes to Robert Stuart! Not only will I be back again and again, but all my friends will know about Robert and the Robert Stuart Salon as well. Thank you Robert, I couldn't have asked for anything better! You're truly a hair genius!

My husband and I have been going to Robert Stuart salon for about a year now. He has done such a wonderful job with our hair, we asked him to give our 16 month old daughter her first cut. Robert did an outstanding job! He was patient with Noelle and made the experience fun for her. We will certainly continue to be customers of Robert for a long time to come.

Pros: you are treated like a real person, not just another body in a chair

Cons: can't think of any

I recently had my hair cut by Robert at Robert Stuart Salon. I was extremely disappointed. I wanted to cry as they were styling my hair. They could not get it to look like a glossy salon finished blowout should look; they did not take the time to work with my hair, it being a bit dry. After washing my hair and styling at home - I realized that my cut was uneven; it looks like I never got my hair cut :( I felt rushed - like they couldn't take the time to work with my hair; seemed as though he was not use to working with my hair texture. With his years of experience, I should have left his salon looking stunning. I've gotten a better cut and style at a small, very low profile salon. Two weeks after getting my hair with Robert, I am now searching to get my hair re-cut. I was very disappointed - as I was so excited at the opportunity to get my hair cut by Robert - after reading reviews on city search. I must say, Robert seems like a very nice guy and has a sincere interest in pleasing you, but it just did not come together. Sorry...would never go back...

Cons: sloppy haircut and styling; hair looked terrible after the blowout and an uneven cut.

After being at RS salon,and was asked to write a reveiw after the worse experience ever, was a big mistake ever made by the salon.You would think that being a first time customer they would give you a little attention and not ignore you.Had my appointment with courtney,and oh boy what a big mistake that turned out to be.talk about someone who had know clue what she was talking about.I asked her i wanted a big change,and I have had long hair all my life and wanted it short,she responded with making a big change like that takes seriouse thinking and she ended up cutting 1nch of my hair and no style what so ever.I left looking the way i came in,oh but an inch shorter.I will NEVER be back again.

Robert did an amazing job on my hair. I have curly hair that is very hard to cut, but he totally got it. You can tell a great haircut by how it grows out. I saw Robert 2 months ago and it is growing out perfectly. I am sooo picky about my hair so I am very happy to have found a great place. Don't hesitate to make an appointment. Thank you Robert!!!!!

Pros: To me, it's all about the haircut and service. Both were fantastic.

Cons: None!

I have had my haircut by Robert Stuart for over 20 years and I get a consistently excellent haircut for my fine, thin hair. Stylish without too much attitude. Robert does a great job with my husband's hair as well. Viva Robert Stuart Salon!

while on an extended stay with some friends on the upperwest side, i found myself in dire need of a haircut. after searching on citysearch, i came across this place and a few others that were up for a try. I asked around the local neighborhood, and everyone steared me to the Robert Stuart Salon. I could not have been happier. not only did I get a great cut, but the staff was so friendly and welcoming. the atmosphere there is equally satisfying. From the warm wall colors and lighting, to the awesome but subtle decorating, i found myself feeling quite relaxed and enjoyed every minute. I will definitely be back next time i come to new york. The only bad aspect is that i won't be able to find an equal haircut back home in California. Guess I'll be coming back sooner than expected. Thanks!!

I have been going to Robert to get my haircut for 3 years now, and all I can say is why didn't I find this place 10 years earlier. After bouncing from the endless number of annually opening and closing salons, it sure was nice to find one I am completely happy with. They are very busy at most times, so appointments are definitely advised. although I have been lucky enough to stop by while doing errands, and find an open appointment or a recent cancellation. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a classy precision styling, and their hair color is flawless.

I usually tour cities and choose one place to evaluate the saloons, unfortunately, mislead by the rating of this site (which I am having my extreme doubts of its system now), for NYC, I believe I choose the wrong place. \r
I had an appointment with Robert himself to exclude the bad reviews worry. However, after 30min wait, my hair cut was below average to say the least. However, for people seeking an ordinary cut this might not be too bad. I noticed that at least 90% of the customers are quite on the older side (they are either doing tinting T section or doing their hair while still all gray), which would probably sum about Robert's style, which he mentioned already on his website. However, for an experienced hairdresser, I thought he would be able to create something different if the client wanted that. My hair is long, and I wanted to keep the length, but I wanted to have a new look. He failed to create something with that, but I believe that limitations only describe the hairdresser abilities. As I went to a hairdresser before with the same state of my current hair, and they did manage to amaze me with a funky hair style by changing the angle and the length of different layers. If anything, he defunked my funky style, as he mentioned by evening the layers. \r
But what made me really disappointed of the whole experience, is that the blowdry that he gave to my hair (combined with a straightening iron, that was red, and was very harsh on the hair pushing it and cutting all through, beside his quite rough hands that kept hitting my head giving me quite unpleasant experience I NEVER had even at lower class places, as if he is angry or something which was very strange for an experienced hair dresser), and the end result, was a very big hair that has lots of curls inside. He repeated that he wanted to make it very straight in order to make the final correction to the hair cut while dry. If it was still full of curls, you can predict what the final result was!!

Pros: some of the staff make you feel at ease

Cons: Robert is very rough on the head, very traditional hair cut not recommended for new look

Robert is a great businessman, an ok haircutter and a pretty good stylist. I've been to his salon twice for a cut, years apart, and both times left looking pretty much the same as when i went in. neither stylist wanted to look at my hair before it was washed, but i insisted both times since i was anew client. the first time i went to a junior stylist. she hardly cut my hair and when i asked her to make it shorter in the front, she cute 5-10 hairs a couple of centimeters. after asking a few more times, i gave up and chalked it up to her inexperience. i came back recently for a haircut with robert, figuring he would be much better. his cut was ok, although again, longer than i wanted. i asked him to shorten it and, again, it went up a miniscule amount. we went through this a few times until i gave up. the day after my haircut, friends asked why i had skipped my appointment, because they couldn't tell it had been cut. my hair looked pretty nice when i left though, and robert gave me a lollipop and asked that i review his salon. that tactic has obviously served him well. however, $90 for, essentially, a blow-out, isn't worth it.

Great colorist (Theo) and stylist (Robert)...I LOVE my hair!!! \r

Theo looks at your color and does a great consultation. Robert cut my hair wet and then cut it dry five or six times until he thinks its perfect! I would definitely go back!

I was nervous when it came time to find a new hairstlist in the city but my desperation and gut instinct lead me in the right direction. This salon does not dissapoint! My hairstylist there recently left but my experiences there have been so pleasnt I decided to try the other stylists. Thank God I did! I love my color and my haircut is perfect! The owner Robert knows his stuff and knows how to run a good business. The customer service is great. Did I mention the shampoo? Ahhhhh thats the good stuff. The prices are more reasonable as well. I feel like a new woman every time I leave. Thank you Robert Stuart salon!

in the past I have gone to hairdressers who are now charging in the $400 to 500 range. which I can no longer afford. I was so delighted to find a hairdresser who, at a fraction of those charges, was their equal. I found out about him attending a concert given by my grand-daughter's private school - admiring the haircut of a woman sitting before me. I was convinced that she was going to a hairdresser whom I could not afford, and that she was younger and with much thicker hair. Nevertheless, I worked up my courage and asked her for the name of her hairdresser. I just had my third haircut there today and am more than totally pleased. The cuts are so well done that they last far more than has been the usual. Nice, too, that I get compliments on the way my hair looks. The staff - including Robert - is friendly - only thing lacking is they don't serve coffee. Of course, I'm joking. \r
\r
An unrelated bonus to the haircut, is the neighborhood. While I live on the upper east side, I find my trips here are an incentive to browse the upper west side..

i am not usually picky w/ hairstylist, but i wanted to try something new so i booked robert after seeing many good reviews. I have no issues w/ the salons, assistants etc, but i felt extremely rushed the entire time, and hence i got a very uneven haircut, it was about 1/2 -1 inch longer from one side to the next. I felt like as soon as i sat in his chair he wanted to move on to the next customer. I realize the more customers you have the more money you make, but its not fair, you should treat all customers the same and give them the time they pay for. I went to another salon two days later to fix the uneveness, hence it was one expensive haircut.

I went to the Robert Stuart salon after having a terrible color job at Amour de Hair on the UWS. I was having my roots highlighted at Amour de Hair and instead of matching my golden blonde hair, they made my roots so blonde I looked like I belonged at the Playboy mansion. So, the next day (after a long night of crying) I walked up the street to the Robert Stuart Salon to see if they could fix my hair disaster. I was seen by John who transformed my hair into the beautiful blonde I wanted it to be!!! He is AMAZING!! Not only did he fix my color, but he also gave me a new gorgeous cut. On top of everything, the salon is very clean and the staff are some of the NICEST people in Manhattan. I am hooked- I will never go anywhere else!!!

i wrote a review a few weeks ago about a great haircut i got from robert stuart of robert stuart salon- but it never posted. so this is the brief version: Robert was meticulous and warm, and most importantly extraordinarily concerned with how i would like my haircut and all the idiosyncrasies of my hair and its texture. He took ample time getting to know my hair and giving me the perfect, sassy, easy to style haircut. This is not an easy feat as I have mounds of thick, curly hair. I highly recommend Robert Stuart! Thank you Robert!

It was the worst experience of my life I made an appointment with Robert Stuart himself but when I came in I was told that he would not be longer than 10+ minutes with his client before me I ended up waiting a half an hour just to get my haircut which made me late for my plans later on that evening. Not only was he late but he gave me a haircut from the 70's he totally neglected what I was requested. He didn't listen nor did he take his time; I left the salon feeling ichy which made me feel extremely uncomfortable. Not only was the service horrible the vibe that I got from the salon was not a good one. EVERYONE seemed so tense and fake. I would never reccommend this salon to anyone

I recommend hair color by John. I've been to him twice now and both times I've had challenging requests. John has consistently given me great advice and exactly the color we discussed. Both times he really took the time to talk to me about options, find out exactly what I wanted, and make sure I knew exactly what the results would be before he put the color on my hair. He's a great stylist for people who are nervous about having their hair colored!

i went several times to Robert Stuart salon because of the positive reviews and its proximity to my home, but once I got a terrible haircut from Diane - when she finished, I couldn't believe it, and didn't trust her to repair the job. The ends were completely uneven and looked awful! I went the next morning to a different salon, and the stylist pointed out the incompetent work and charged me $20 less than the mess I paid for! If you go to the salon, only go to Robert - I hear he's the trustworthy guy there.

Wonderful Customer Service- Very willing and eager to make the customer happy!! After I left the first review about a negative experience with one stylist -Sandy- I was offered a prompt appointment with Robert free of charge. I will update review after Saturday's haircut!\r
\r
UPDATE:\r
\r
Just got my haircut with Robert yesterday. Wonderful experience. Robert takes the time to listen and understand what you want. The hair cut looks great with my face shape- which is hard to do with a more round face and curly hair. I definitely recommend Robert for girls looking for a good stylist for curly hair that is reasonably priced and don't want to spend hundreds at Ouidad for the same thing. Robert Stuart is dedicated to great customer service- and even said come back until we get it right. But it looks great first try! Oh and they don't push products on you like at other salons. I will be going back to Robert.

I've been going to Baiba at Robert Stuart for several years, and she gives me a great haircut every time. Sometimes I have strayed because I either didn't want to wait for an appointment (walk-ins, read=scary) or because I wanted to go somewhere pretentious (read=expensive), but this only makes me go running back to Robert Stuart to see Baiba to fix whatever someone else mucked up. \r
\r
The salon is no frills, no nonsense, but the people are warm and friendly, and the best part is that they actually know how to cut hair!

I have tried about 20 different stylists in the 6 1/2 yrs I have lived in new york, and i found Baiba at Robert Stuart Salon - she is incredible!!! every time she cuts my hair, people comment on it even just walking down the street. I love the salon, i love the people there - but I have to say, if Baiba left for a different place, I would follow her. Never had a stylist I felt faithful to! Hope she stays because the salon is also wonderful - such a refreshing atmosphere for Manhattan.

Robert has been cutting my hair for 10+ years, always just right. If you are seeking a person, (salon) for a very nice, professional adult cut, then he's your guy.

I've known this salon well for several years and used to get my haircut with a woman who no longer works there. I decided that I would return, as I was planning to cut my hair short and thought it was best to make a big change with someone who really knew what they were doing. I decided to pay more and go to Robert. The first time around, he was careful and nervous about my hair (he looked repeatedly at the picture I had brought in), but in the end I still had a totally mediocre haircut with no personality - not good for $80 plus tip. The second time I went, I was more specific, but I ended up with a much shorter version of my orginally mediocre haircut and Robert did not at all listen to what I wanted. He gave me a completely unflattering haircut and when I went back in to get it fixed, he spent at tops 10 minutes giving me uneven layers and not thinning it out as I had asked. Thank you Robert for the crappiest haircut and worst experience I've had in about 10 years. There is nothing worse for a woman than having a short, bad haircut that cost a ton of money.

Pros: hair colorists are quite good here

Cons: attitude of staff it totally fake, bad haircuts

My hair is very straight and fine, and I like to wear it pretty short -- you should only see all the bad haircuts I've had in my life. Robert does a great job. He listens to me and offers his own ideas as well. And I like the buzz in his salon -- it's a warm and friendly place.

I have a big event in NYC wanted to get my hair and makeup done. I'm coming from out of town. I used citysearch to find a salon open on Sunday, the day of the event. I emailed this salon. They followed up with both an email and a phone call. I was impressed and booked the appointments. Now five days before the event I get a call that there will be no one to do my makeup. What?! It might be a fine salon but I'll never know.

Three things have kept me going back to Robert Stuart for over a dozen years for color and cut:\r
1. The result is always updated and polished looking.\r
2. Conversely, the result is never drastic, unsuitable or trendy looking.\r
3. Reasonable prices and knowledgeable staff.\r
\r
You can't go wrong at Robert Stuart's.

Pros: Experts in all areas of hair care and style

I have been a client of the Robert Stuart Salon for over 10 years. I simply would not trust anyone else with my hair -- Robert for cuts, Theo for highlights. Robert is a true artist and my beautiful haircuts last forever, and Theo's highlights are so natural that, well, as the saying goes, ""Only me hairdresser knows for sure."" Love 'em!!!

John got it right today! For 20 years in NYC I've searched for a colorist that won't me TOO BLONDE, the TALL BLONDE. When your 5' 9"", NYC colorists always project their fantasy onto my hair, and not what goes with my life. Thanks John.

I signed up for Citysearch just to write a review for this salon. The folks at Robert Stuart Salon are perfectionists with great style and terrific attitudes. They're worth way more than they're charging, and how often can you say that about someplace in this city?

I've been getting my hair cut with Lilly for years, and she has done an excellent job each time! I always go in with an extremely vague idea of what I want, and give her an even vaguer description, but she always manages to read my mind and do a perfect job! She also checks the length of each section of hair with me before she cuts it, so I never have any nasty surprises, or wish that she had cut it more. Also, for other curly girls out there, she is great with curly hair, and has lots of good styling tips!\r
\r
A++++!

Robert Stuart Salon is an oasis of tranquility and beauty. Always drenched in beautiful natural light with pretty botanicals. The Chi flows around this shop and has a soothing calming effect. A beautiful boutique atmosphere with a hip stylish staff to greet and service you. I put myself in Robert?s hands, and have never looked or felt better. So many years of styling hair and countless satisfied customers make Robert a master at what he does. Always the brilliant conservationist, his brassy voice, entertaining personality, and strong character make it much more than a mere cut and style. Do yourself a favor and give them a call @ 212 496 1530. This salon is a wonderful place to make friends and get a great look.

If you want straight hair and yours is not in the best condition like mine, Sandy is the person to see for any type of relaxing treatment. She also did Japanese straightening for my sister which came out great. She is extremely attentive to every detail and a real professional. My haircut was great as well.

It is impossible to do justice to this fabulous salon in a short review. Robert is truly an artist and quite possibly the nicest guy in town. I get countless compliments on my cut and color, the latter done with meticulous care by Theo. The staff is friendly and respectful. The atmosphere is busy but never frenetic,\r
It is not unusual to become involved in a conversation with Robert and the person in the next chair, but if that's not your style you can relax in peace and get the color/cut of your life. I have recommended Robert Stuart to many people, and every one of them has become a fan and regular client.

Pros: Cuts, Color, Care

I visited the salon several weeks ago and I must say that my experience was more than what I anticipated. I was slightly late for my appointment and was relieved when I entered that no one admonished me or gave me scornful looks. The place was ""jumping"" and just sitting there gave me an appreciation of what to expect when it was my turn in the chair. My hairstylist (I will NOT give you his name...he's mine!) was fantastic! He explained his method of how he comes up with the right color formula for my hair and let me tell you, it was beautiful! The single process he applied had given me the natural look I've wanted but never achieved in other salons where a double process (color then highlights) had been applied...I am definitely happy that I've found this place...

Even though I've been annoyed by how aggressively this salon seeks reviews (on this site) from customers, I've been very satisfied with my haircuts and service. When I finally decided I wanted to cut my hair off, that's where I went. Becca, who is no longer there, gave me a beautiful haircut which re-affirmed my original decision. Even though she's gone, I am now with Diana Wright, who is very talented. Moreover, as look around me when I'm there, I notice that all the haircuts are very cute and appropriate for each customer.\r

I recommend this salon. It's excellent.

Sandy has been doing my color for a while - she really knows her stuff. Thanks to her I'm a beautiful brunette long after mother nature says I should be. But her real special skill is Japanese straightening. For us naturally ""frizzy's"" she can change your life. Try it!\r
\r
The atmosphere in the salon is friendly, not intimidating, professional and, thanks to Robert's client list - an occasional surprise celeb. I look forward to my regular visits.

I think it is important for Citysearch users to be aware that the large number of reviews for Robert Stuart's Salon is largely a product of Robert Stuart's marketing ploy and not necessarily a spontaneous outburst of satisfaction from his clients. I was astonished to find that everywhere you looked in the salon there are red pieces of paper printed with details on how to add a review to CitySearch. These slips of paper are given to you as you leave the salon and you are encouraged to write a review if you are satisfied with your hair. Most people do feel great walking out of a salon so I am sure if we surveyed the City search reviewers we would find the review was written very shortly after their visit. I decided to wait two weeks to see how the style held up. And I was disappointed, it is simply ordinary. Not a disaster, just ordinary. Robert Stuart certainly did not live up to the hype generated by himself and others.

I am a new mom who was looking for some advice on an attractive style that's easy-to-manage. I am so glad that I found this salon! The receptionist was so friendly and helpful. I had an appointment with John and he not only gave me a great cut, but also some wonderful advice on how to blow-dry my hair quickly at home. He really listened to my concerns and needs and helped me decide what to do with my hair. He also did a great job of making sure that he answered any questions about my hair or how to best take care of it. I felt like he really knew his stuff and I got some great tips with my hair cut. It was a bit more than I can usually afford to spend on a haircut, but I felt that the experience was worth it. I would definitely recommend both John and this salon.

loved the service, finally found somebody artistic enough to give me a style, and easy wash and go hair. Arsen was the guy who cut my hair. He makes sure to understand your needs before proceeding with hair cutting. i had a grate time getting a haircut with him, and i am definitely coming back.

I recieved a lovely cut from Arsen that matched the functionality I require for my busy everyday life yet gave me a style that matches my personality and highlights my best physical features. I have been recieving compliments on it since I stepped out their door.

Having endured a hack job cut/color in Boston, John rescued my hair. He spent time upfront examining the multiple colors of strands, discussed my goals, and suggested a plan to make my color look natural! He carefully applied the color in a manner that he has perfected from courses in Spain and London. The application was much more gentle and precise than those often used and didn't use bleach! Over time, my hair will not only look fabulous, but will become healthy again. My husband, too, was thrillled with my new color and cut! Thanks John!

WOW!! What a great salon!! I've been to so many salons over the past 10 years from Downtown to Madison Avenue to Uptown and have had horrible experiences with color (damage, orange hair, etc). John did my highlights and he was awesome! He really listened to my concerns and applied his magic techniques and talent to give me the best blonde hair ever. This salon has a great vibe and a ton of talent. Everyone (including me) left the salon looking amazing. I highly recommend John and the entire staff.\r
My hair has never looked more natural and gorgeous!

I'd passed by this Salon for many years, didn't quite ""get it"". But when my hairdresser/colorist, Sandy, left another nearby salon for Robert Stuart, I followed her. Naturally, I am a fan of Sandy's - her color & cut is/are excellent - but I also love the intimate & friendly atmosphere of the Robert Stuart - and being a bit of an upper west side 'snob' I don't think I've ever heard an unintelligent conversation - so much different from every other salon! ( And the prices are great, too.) I'm thrilled.
