so my friend referred me to this place, and i was a little skeptical at first. the prices were REALLY good, and usually when the price is good, the cut isn't. i was extremely happy and thrilled with my cut. the salonist- baiba- had gone to a european hair school for 4 yrs and totally knew about all different types of hairs and styles and how to make a cut individualized. it was fabulous! so far i have been back twice and have now officially made it the ONLY hair salon that i will go to for everything! (cuts, dyes, highlights, etc.)

John has returned to Robert Stuart Salon. \r
While I have always been satisfied with every stykist and colorist at RSS, John's European training brings something unique to the salon. He was able to bring life back into my hair without using any bleach and created the most natural and blended color. His approach takes a little while longer but the result is striking. He also cut and styled my fine hair so that it looks and feels thicker than it has in a long time.\r
\r
After leaving the salon I continued my walk up Broadway and was stopped by 2 woman wanting to know who did my hair. Book John while you can!\r

Great salon! Great haircut!\r
\r
This was my first visit and I will certainly go back again! I walked past on a Sunday afternoon and was curious so I went in. It was very crowded, weekends are busy. I was greeted immediately by Robert Stuart and he made me feel happy that I had walked in and because he was so attentive, I made an appointment immediately for the following Tuesday. (The salon is closed on Mondays)\r
\r
I received a consultation, shampoo and haircut all at a very reasonable price and everyone working at the salon was very friendly.\r
\r
The gentleman who cut my hair had just started at Robert Stuart Salon and he did a fantastic job! He took his time and I didn't feel like my haircut was being rushed. His name is ""Arsen"" and he's going to be very busy.

My first time at Robert Stuart was today, and I am wildly pleased. John is the best. He fixed my awful, stripy, outgrown highlights and made them subtle and sophisticated. Then he gave me the exact haircut that I described to him. Everyone was so friendly- there is absolutely no attitude here. Highly recommended, and I'm not going to anyone else.

Whenever I come home to the city for spring break I am in need of a haircut and do not know where to go. I went on city search and Robert Stuart stood out because it had so many positive reviews. The prices are very reasonable for a New York Salon and everyone that came in walked out happy. I got a great hair cut from Arsen. I have curly hair and walked in with it looking like a mess, he understood that i was looking for a little bit more shape and style and a wash-and-go cut. I could tell that he knew what he wanted to do with my hair, and he did a great job with it. He spent a long time making sure it was just right and taught me how to blowdry my hair straight. \r
although everyone that got their hair done by Robert seemed happy, I was very satisfied with the cut I got, so you do not need to splurge.

This salon has a neighborly vibe but turns out to be a more upscale operation. It is too bad it is so cramped but they make up for it with personalized, friendly service. I had read great things in major reliable publications, all positive and encouraging. My FIRST experience wasn't great. I felt I had really been taken advantage of; the haircutter had strong opinions and didn't give any credence to my concerns and ONE specific objection. I came back with trepidations but with my mind open. It was a year later and I believed that what I saw happening around me the first time defined it as a quality business with a significant following. It was likely that it was the individual employee that made the difference and time had passed and that person wasn't there anymore. This time the stylist that worked with me listened and gave his own professional, insightful input. He looked at me: my features, my positives and my negatives. Robert Stuart was there that day and is clearly the leader and has set up a great organization. He, himself, seems to cater to the slightly older, more needy and chatty clientele; there is a real need for that and he's the expert with the personality to match the need. Ivan worked with my hair and changed my outlook and my look (!!) for the noticeable better (as well as my impression of stylists).

I love Robert's work because not only does it look good when he does it -- the cut grows in so beautifully. And I find that my highligts last a long time too , becauise the color is so real. It is exactly the natural but very hip look I want.\r
\r
So even though its prices are right in the middle of the NYC hair salon spectrum, everyone at his salon does superior work -- really giving you an excellent financial value.

I grew up in Philadelphia and come from a FAMILY of hair stylists who have their own highly recommended salon just on the outskirts of the city. When I moved to New York 3 years ago, amongst many other worries, I knew that I was eventually going to have to find a new person to cut my hair.\r
\r
Shouldn't be so difficult, right? This is New York City - fashion capital. WRONG. Within my first year in the city, I found myself paying top-dollar for horrible hair service on several occasions - you know, the kind that make you cry. Finally, I refused to do it anymore, and headed back to Philadelphia for haircuts as often as possible. Because I am a grad student, those trips were not always easy to make and so, I'd also resorted to dying my own hair...yikes.\r
\r
Until this past week! A friend insisted that I try Robert Stuart salon. I'm also an actor, and had found myself in a terrible fix: I'd just been cast in something AND was on the verge of getting new headshots - performance and photoshoot all coming up way before I'd get a chance to get back to Philadelphia. I'd been walking around with a pretty good haircut, but 4 different colors of hair - black, dark brown, highlights, and, at 26, even grey. I was desperate and so decided to trust my friend.\r
\r
Not only was Robert Stuart Salon THE friendliest salon I'd been to in all of Manhattan, but they listened to my concerns. They let me talk! The colorist, Theo, was an angel. She really took her time in getting my hair color just right. She insisted, ""You are not leaving here until I am happy with the results."" I felt so cared for. And Robert cut my hair. He is AWESOME. Not only can the man hold a conversation about anything under the sun, but he gives an amazing haircut that is actually able to be re-created at home. This is the place for me and I am telling all of my friends! I love it there! And you will too! Go - try - just TRY it!

I have been to so many different places to get my haircut, but Robert Stuart is the absolute best! I went in a shaggy mess and came out looking absolutely spectacular. I will always recommend this spot to anyone on the UWS. They have been around for 25 years and that should tell you something, but go for youself.

I recently moved from the UES to UWS and wanted to find a new salon closer to home. Having read the great reviews on this site I booked for highlights and cut at this salon. I have never had a complaint with any salon ever before this experience. I went in with blonde colored highlights and had asked for caramel colored highlights with brown lowlights as my hair had become too blonde over time. I came out with very dark ash brown hair that was a darker color than my eyebrows and awful gray colored highlights and a really bad 70s looking hair cut. I mentioned to the colorist that the color was very dark and looked more like ash than caramel and she said that it was just the lighting in the salon. She said if I still didn't like it in a few days to come back and they would put a tone through it. When I walked in the door at home my husband literally said ""Oh honey.. that looks terrible. You look ten years older"". I called back that day to let them know that the color was gray when I got home and I'd need to come back in. The receptionist was really great and polite and said she'd check for a suitable time and call back. By 6pm that evening I'd still not heard back. In the end I went back the next day and they put two lots of toner in which helps to change the color from gray but my hair still looked awful. I've never had a problem with any salon ever before so this experience came as a surprise. On both days the people washing hair were very inexperienced with one person soaking my back with water and another almost ripping my hair out with a comb until I suggested that she use conditioner.

Had my hair colored and cut by Pam. She was able to match my color exactly just by describing the color, and trying to match the tone of my very faded color. She was able to cut out most of the horribly damaged hair caused by highlights gone wrong a few months ago. Its a little bit shorter than I normally like, but it looks 10,000 times better than when I walked in! Healthy, shiny, and has some style back to it! Everyone was very friendly and sweet, and completely unpretentious. They all cut hair to make it easy to style, offer tips on maintenance, and aren't pushy about products. Atmosphere is amazingly low key and relaxing! Almost fell asleep while I had my hair washed! First time in a long time that I walked out of a salon without a drop of color on my clothing, or hair dye stains all over my face! They are careful, detail oriented, and listen to exactly what you want. Pam did an amazing job, and I will certainly go back! The prices are also reasonable for Manhattan, but that's just an added bonus.

I took my daughter here to get her hair done and they were very patient with her because at 9 yrs old she can be a handful but the ladies here were able to keep her calm and quiet while they did her hair.

I've been going to the RS salon for four years now, and couldn't be happier with my stylist (Baiba), and the affable Robert himself. However, every time I go I dread the shampooing experience. I have never seen the same person working there twice, and I am not quite sure what that means... Anyway, I don't know what kind of sadistic savages they hire there, but I've run the gamut from being doused in the face (effectively washing off all my makeup), to being scalded with hot water or frozen with cold water (sometimes they don't check the temperature of the water on their hand first!), to my most recent experience, when the young lady, upon accidentally smearing shampoo on my ear (forgivable) and wishing to rinse it off, took the shower nozzle and stuck it DIRECTLY into my ear, completely filling my ear canal with water! I am a musician, so any danger to the ear freaks me out. Hours later, my inner ear is still filled with water and feels tender to the touch... yow. \r
I really wish I could decline the scary shampooing service altogether. It's painful, stressful, and never any fun at all. Robert, if I promise to wash my hair right before coming over, will you let me?

I just got the best cut I've ever had. You don't understand. I am follicularly challenged. I'm not as stout as Pavarotti was, and I sure don't have his voice, and my eyes are much more dazzling and my beard is neater. BUT besides that, I look a lot like him. (Even my stylist today said that.) Either that, or I look like Billy Joel's fat cousin.\r
\r
Suffice it to say that my personality must overcome my lack of physical WOW! Which it does quite nicely, thank you.\r
\r
Anyway, every other barber / stylist / whatever has been set on giving me a short haircut. I told Sandy, ""Look, I don't mind if it's short. I'm just tired of it looking average."" She studied my facial features and the hair that I do have and agreed to give me a good cut with pizzazz. Following an absolutely exquisite shampoo that very nearly sent me comatose with relaxation, Sandy began to do her magic. I could tell from the first snip that this one was different. She was so meticulous.\r
\r
This was such a delightful experience that, despite the freezing temperatures today (in the 20's), I wouldn't put my hat back on.\r
\r
Don't hesitate to go get a great cut. Just call them up and go.

Was not at all disappointed; Sandy does such a wonderful job with both cut and highlights will be loyal customer even if it means trecking from jersey. Extremely nice, down to earth management as well.

I have never been moved to write a review before, and I'm not easy to please. The first time I went in, Robert understood immediately what kind of haircut I needed, and really delivered. I got compliments on my hair from everyone, and most importantly, I was thrilled. I was busy and didn't have time to go for a second haircut for 8 weeks. It still looked great even weeks after the cut, and this time I decided to go with a shorter, more styled cut. He heard me perfectly again, did something different from the last time, and again, it looks great! My 24 year old very beautiful daughter who has long hair, was so impressed that she cancelled her Bumble and Bumble appointment, made an appointment with Robert, and her hair--still long--is styled just right for her face and look. \r
To me the haircut is the most important thing, but the customer service is also outstanding. Plus, they are happy to recommend products, and sell some very good ones, but they are not at all pushy about it. I felt very comfortable picking and choosing whether and what to buy.

Hi everyone, it's a pleasure to write this recommendation for Robert and his salon, I`m from Germany and spent a holiday in NYC with my family in Dec. 2007. I made an appointment for me and my 17 years old daughter by e-mail in advance and even the correspondence with Valerie was very good. We then found Robert's salon very easy and there was a friendly Hello by everyone from the staff to us. Robert cut my hair like nobody ever in my live, it was exactly what I was wishing for. My daughter Antonia got her haircut from Bridget and she looked so pretty afterwards. A big Thank you, we will come back if possible, in any fact when I`m in NYC, I will!\r
Greetings from Germany!\r

Pros: not far away from subway station

I wear my hair in a type of Ceasar's cut which at first glance would appear to be an easy job for any barber or hair stylist. However, before I met Robert Stuart (10 years ago), I was never satisfied with the result. I tried numerous barbers and many beauticians with no satisfaction. Somehow, Robert was able to understand exactly what I wanted and used a technique that I had never encountered in all my haircutting travels. In addition, to doing a great job, he is a pleasure to talk to and is very easy to deal with. The last time I was there, I was struck by how hard he works on each person. In short, the Robert Stuart Salon is a great place\r
with very talented and courteous help.\r

I have had very good haircuts with Robert, the owner. As others have pointed out, he is somewhat rough in handling my head and needs to be reminded about that. (Robert! Take heed!) However, the haircuts are worth it. I first went to see him after a very bad haircut at a nearby salon. He cut my hair dry and, lo and behold, the mess was gone and I had a really good cut. (My hair is straight and shows every error.) I have had several subsequent cuts, all of which have worked well. When there is a problem, he is very good-natured about fixing it. As a mature woman of a ""certain age,"" I often have been treated dismissively by other stylists. They seem to be saying: ""I can't make her young and beautiful, so why try?"" In contrast, Robert seems to care that I look my best. I am not very good at describing what I want from a haircut, but he seems to get it, nonetheless. He gives me classic cuts with a bit of ""edge"" to them. Just what I want!

I loved this place! I was intimidated at first, because the salon, while small, is clean and professional, and everyone's walking around in matching robes. Odd for a poor theatre person who is used to getting free haircuts! But everyone, from the receptionist to Robert himself were incredibly friendly. Right as I walked in the door I got a big sunny ""good morning!"" from Robert! Rebecca cut my hair, and she is amazing. I have rather fine hair, and hadn't cut it in forever- in what seemed like no time at all Rebecca was done and my hair had volume and shape! It is so easy to take care of now, and Rebecca even gave me tips on how to control my bangs- something I've always had an issue with. These people are amazing and friendly, and they really listen to what you want- my hair looks great and best of all, I don't have to go out of my way to style it in the morning. I will definitely be going back!

This salon was great. I went last week to Bridget, picked the salon out of citysearch and they lived up to par. AMAZING CUT, almost perfect coloring, and you have to get the New Hair Treatment- 5 days later and my hair still feels ridulously, uncommonly healthy! I have very fine hair and it's always breaking and dry but after this treatment I don't even recognize it. The salon makes you feel like family and the owner is sweet as pie. I will definitely return. Top-notch and very down to earth.

I initially saw Rebecca, who relocated elsewhere earlier this year, and was referred to Theo. The hair gods must've been smiling on me, as she is a wonderful coIorist! My highlights formula had begun turning brassy after having m y second child, and Theo came up with a great highlight/lowlight formula that gave me these wonderful,neutral caramel highlights. I have been getting tons of compliments on my hair for the past 2 months. Theo listens intently and then executes without a hint of attitude. She is a real find. \r
\r
Sandy does my cut and always seems to modify it slightly (and given my fine, straight texture, this is not easy feat!) so that each cut is subtly different in some new pleasing way. She goes into her zone and emerges smiling after getting it ""just so"". \r
\r
I had just about given up on NYC salons until I found Robert Stuart Salon. After frequenting every kind of salon from high-end to no-frills, I found my place! When I first begain coming to RS Salon, I was smarting from a series of lousy colors jobs, each one supposedly correcting the one before it., and an unflatttering cut. They actually listen to you hera and execute as discussed, not the way some willy-nilly, off-the-cuff, celebrity-aspiring stylists do. I enjoy when Robert is in the house, as the salon just purrs with efficiency and good buzz. He hires first-rate stylists, who are well-mannered and professional. Atmosphere is lovely, cozy and organized. I love this place.

I've been going here since the article in The New Yorker by Susan Orlean (yes, the author of The Orchid Theif--which I've spelled wrong on purpose because Citysearch won't let me use the word, ahem, theif). Everyone's friendly and on the rare instance I have to wait a few minutes, I feel very attended to. The cuts and blow-outs are great, I always feel like a new woman when I leave, and the price is good for New York.

This is a no fail choice for cuts or color. I've been going to Robert for over twenty years and his cuts just get better and better. Before going to Robert I used to go to Bendels. I know about THE BEST. This is the best you can get in NYC. Don't hesitate for a moment.

What a wonderful experience - the mix of clients: women, men, children confirms this salon to be a true neighborhood place. Efficient, in time, friendly, no attitude. Each client I saw during my 2-hour visit left looking really good. My stylist Sandy gave me the most natural highlights which fit skin tone perfectly, my haircut is flattering and handles beautifully. Angelica treated me to a wonderful massage while washing my hair. I felt pampered and beautiful. And still do - the blow-dry lasted through the weekend!

I had been desperate for a new stylist for some time, and am notoriously picky about how to cut/shape my curly/poufy/thick (somewhat coarse) hair. I tried Rob Stuart and took a chance on Lily - wonderful experience. NOTE: This is a very no nonsense salon. If you are looking for an artistic adventure, I would not go here. The salon is warm, friendly and undaunting - as is the Staff. If you *know what you want* they will listen to you and deliver! Though English is not her first language, Lily impressed me with her delicate prodding when I was explaining my desired cut. Oddly, I had not realized that I was describing every BAD cut I had ever received, as opposed to explaining precisely what I wanted *now*. She was detailed and specific and guided me through, so I in fact left EXTREMELY pleased - and a dedicated convert. Best cut I've had in a VERY long time. Some of the reviews portray Rob as brusque, but what I saw was an intense, disciplined and passionate salon owner. Do you really want somebody lenient and simpish to direct the people who cut your hair? Prolly not. He maintains a tight ship, so I'm sure it's not always tea and roses. In short, if you are looking for ""THAT"" cut and your ""Guy/Girl"" is unavailable/moved/retired - come here. You will be incredibly glad that you did :)

I visited the Robert Stuart Salon during a vacation to NYC. I found that the staff at the front desk were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Not only did they arrange a haircut around a difficult schedule they informed me of a free treatment during a training exercise that occured during my visit. I received a women's haircut and blowdry and the Nigelle Treatment. The Nigelle Treatment was fantastic. I left the salon with beautifully shiny hair and it has remained so. I have spent many years changing my hair color and I always look for a way to increase the shine so the color does not appear dull - this woks! In addition, you recive a take home conditioner pack that can be used to maintain the shine.\r
\r
In regards to the hair cut, I can say that it is technically a very strong haircut. I was disappointed that the stylist did not spend more time discussing her choices. I emphasized that I wanted a new look and was willing to try almost anything. Perhaps this was not enough information. I left with a very common short haircut (granted my hair was slightly longer than chin length to begin with so there were limitations). Although I did ask questions, the responses were very brief. I was also disappointed that no time was spent on the blowdry styling explanation. The end blowdry was rushed because the next client arrived ~20 minutes early and no products were used nor discussed during the blowdry. That being said, I would still recmd. Robert Stuart Salon and did receive a very strong hair cut in the technical sense. It will grow out well and would have only benefited form more creativity and styling explanation. I would suggest being explicit in your needs when scheduling the appointment and this would most likely be avoided.

I went to Robert Stuart based on City Search reviews and got a haircut with Viba. She did a FANTASTIC job! When I came home that night my fiancee said, ""Wow, you look gorgeous!"" I went back to get highlights and hands down they are the BEST highlights I have ever gotten. She nailed the color perfectly; the last time I had highlights like this was after spending two months surfing in Brazil. Who knew I could have skipped out on the sun damage and gotten highlights from a bottle at Rober Stuart. I am completely sold on this salon and will continue to be a loyal customer!

How innocently i walked into this busy place thinking it is busy so it must be good.\r
the fellow owner started screaming at one of the workers there as if he is just out of lunatic asylum.\r
i feared if he cuts my hair. i find the place full of bad vibes all of a sudden as if this happens often . i quietly sat there and read an article they hand you from new yorker from 1995, portraying the place intellectual and stimulating, but after seeing his face condescending his own workers in the manner he did, the article seemed neurotically scary and all the characters seemed so wacky.\r
i suggest a more sane place if you need to cut your hair. \r
After all Robert Stuart may have worked very hard to build his business but by what right had he find himself abusing in the sense of embarrassment for people to watch let alone the poor workers who barely can defend themselves against an abusive boss.\r
and i am writing this so that he may learn his attitude is extremely offensive to most people and against any good business practice and horribly unpopular. and he must restrain himself for his own good.\r
the cut was ok by the way.

I'm relatively new to the city and went here based on its rep as ""down to earth,"" and was extremely impressed. Not only was Brigitte, the stylist who worked with me, incredibly friendly and respectful of my preferences, but I got the best cut and color of my life! She paid close attention to what I wanted, and didn't try to ""experiment"" on my hair or force her style on me. The color she mixed matched my old highlights insanely well, and you could tell she really knew what she was doing when she cut and layered my hair (it usually ends up choppy when stylists try to layer it, but it looks great).\r
\r
To top it all off, the receptionist was nice and helpful, and the atmosphere really was down to earth. You didn't get the sense that these stylists are trying to be snooty or elitist - they just know their stuff, and work hard to give you what you ask for (at least, Brigitte did). It was a bit on the expensive side, but it's New York - and as I said, it was the best cut and highlight job of my life, so it was well worth it. Bottom line - if you're looking for a quality cut or color but don't want to deal with trendy elitist snobs, this is the place for you! I'm definitely going back when I need a touchup.

This is by far the worst salon I have ever been too. I urge anybody who wants to go to Robert Staurt DONT. I have beautiful long healthy hair and walked in with my hair tied back in a pony tail when going in for my haircut... When I walked out my hair was all chopped up and I couldnt even tie it back without having hair on the sides sticking out.. I am so depressed and miserable, they ruined my hair and if you go there they'll ruin yours too. Robert Stuart is nothing merely but a salon with no talent hairdressers, its the perfect spot for low maintenance people who dont care what there apperance look like, but for those of us who care about our appearance this is not the salon for you

This was my first time going to a pricy salon. I researched on the internet and choose this place. This is also my first time writing a review. Robert cut my hair and Alex assisted him. As soon as I walked in, Robert was visualizing what I wanted. Both men spend time until it was perfectly cut and styled. I love them! I have never has such a nice hair cut in my life. It really has changed the way I look. As soon as I got home, everyone was making positive comments. I enjoyed the vibe of both men. This is my new hair salon! XOXO

I just had the worst haircut ever yesterday. There is no style to my hair now. I am totally furious! I have never written reviews to anything. I needed to write one about this place because I was so disappointed after reading the many good reviews on Citysearch that made me go there. Sandy 'the hairstylist' was not in the mood to cut hair, unless that's how she is all the time. I had to ask her to fix one area that was uneven. I found more areas I needed to fix myself when I came home. I called the next day (Monday) to go back and get it fixed, they're closed even though on their website it says they're open. Sandy, sorry honey, but you are no hairstylist with passion and style.

Just moved to New York from California, my best friend's been going to Robert for 20 years. She always looks gorgeous. It's like an art with him, like he's painting or sculpting with your hair. I've never seen anyone with such a passion for hair. I loved the cut...went back loved it the second time, but then decided I wanted more taken off the length. Robert fit me in right away...and cut more and was extremely nice about it. Besides the great haircut, the place is so welcoming and intimate. They make a person feel right at home.

I have been searching and searching for a good, affordable salon here in the city. A friend of mine suggested the Robert Stuart salon based on a friend of hers recommendation. I went in and spoke with Robert who is just lovely, informed, and geniunely shows a concern for the health of your hair. He steered me to Brigette for color and let me tell you she is amazing! She is the first colorist who has gotten my blonde hair exactly how I want it. My mother has gone to Robert for a haircut and says it's the best haircut she has ever had. Everyone in this salon is friendly and warm. It truly is affordable also!!

I was looking for a salon on the Upper West Side and found the best reviews on City Search were for the Robert Stuart Salon. I got my hair cut there a couple of weeks ago and it was a great experience. Robert himself was there and he seemed very attentive to the comings and goings of his salon. My stylist was very nice and friendly. He was American which I was really happy about. I don't want to sound discriminatory, but for the past 10 years my hair has been cut by people who barely speak English and have no idea what I'm asking for in a haircut. Anyway, the stylist gave me a great cut. I was so satisfied that I left a really big tip, maybe a little too much!

Natalie Esfandiari did an incredible job coloring and cutting my hair. I highly recommend her. I had never had my hair colored and was a bit nervous but she was really calm and confidant and I can't say enough positive things about how my hair turned out. I just wanted to cover the gray, nothing else. Monday at work no one could tell I had had it colored. They just commented about the great cut.

I was new to NY, and looked for women with my kind of hair- not an easy task- asked where she had her cut, and she said Robert- he totally gets my hair, my needs, etc. Right away he gave me the best cut, and still does- Everyone that I have sent to him,has loved what he has done. Low key and yet sophisticated- my husband goes to the salon also, sees Lilly, and loves her too. I recomment the entire place for a wonderful experience

As a new resident of NYC, I carefully read the salon reviews on citysearch. I didn't want a salon that was too swanky, nor too neighborhoody or without talent. I made an appointment at Robert Stuart with Brigitte for a cut and color. The salon was clean and comfortably busy. Brigitte was friendly and attentive, listening carefully to how I described myself and how I perceived my hair. She incorporated some suggestions that we agreed upon and supported my goals. I was very pleased with the service and the end product. I will return again and again. Thanks Brigitte!

I'm not picky when it comes to haircuts. I don't care if you chit-chat, or if you're quiet because you're in a bad mood; I don't care if you take too long, or if you finish suspiciously fast; all I care is you do what you have to do and that the end result is good.\r
My regular stylist was no longer there and I was told that Robert himself was taking her clients, so I went for it. \r
I have to say that the haircut by Robert was the most uncomfortable one I've ever had and I know that it will remain as the worst one I'll ever have. The experience with him tops any hair-got-cut-too-short experience I've ever had or even heard of.\r
He's very rough and heavy-handed, it was like he didn't even know I was a person at all. He was also very careless and he's not detail-oriented. He was cutting my hair above my actual head, so when I walked out of the salon I had small pieces of hair on my scalp and face, which of course also spread to my shirt, and I wasn't aware of anything until I started itching everywhere.\r
To top it all off, during the rough and painful hair-combing, he broke my necklace! He ripped right through it with his comb. He didn't offer to get it fixed or anything, he only gave an obligatory apology and asked if the pendant was still on it and when I confirmed that it was, he said ""Well, that's what's important"". His thoughtlessness really ruined my day.\r
The actual haircut end result was nothing special. I was expecting something nicer than usual since it was Robert himself, but to know that the person who owns and operates the store is rough and unthoughtful and only gives mediocre haircuts, I will never go back.

I'm not picky when it comes to haircuts. I don't care if you chit-chat, or if you're quiet because you're in a bad mood; I don't care if you take too long, or if you finish suspiciously fast; all I care is you do what you have to do and that the end result is good.\r
My regular stylist was no longer there and I was told that Robert himself was taking her clients, so I went for it. \r
I have to say that the haircut by Robert was the most uncomfortable one I've ever had and I know that it will remain as the worst one I'll ever have. The experience with him tops any hair-got-cut-too-short experience I've ever had or even heard of.\r
He's very rough and heavy-handed, it was like he didn't even know I was a person at all. He was also very careless and he's not detail-oriented. He was cutting my hair above my actual head, so when I walked out of the salon I had small pieces of hair on my scalp and face, which of course also spread to my shirt, and I wasn't aware of anything until I started itching everywhere.\r
To top it all off, during the rough and painful hair-combing, he broke my necklace! He ripped right through it with his comb. He didn't offer to get it fixed or anything, he only gave an obligatory apology and asked if the pendant was still on it and when I confirmed that it was, he said ""Well, that's what's important"". His thoughtlessness really ruined my day.\r
The actual haircut end result was nothing special. I was expecting something nicer than usual since it was Robert himself, but to know that the person who owns and operates the store is rough and unthoughtful and only gives mediocre haircuts, I will never go back.

Pros: Location

Cons: Unthoughtful, inconsiderate, poor customer service

I was in town for a friend's wedding and I left Denver in such a hurry that I forgot to get a haircut! I googled salons in the West Side and chose the Robert Stuart Salon because of the reviews and because the receptionist kindly fit me in even if it was very last minute. I didn't really expect much but was I surprised! The salon is small but classy and the staff was so friendly I thought I was in Colorado. I got a superb haircut ! The stylist told me that she was not going to cut it too short so that I would not look like I just got a haircut. Boy, did I look good in my tux with my New York haircut. Thanks to the salon ! Too bad I don't live here.

I got a haircut with Robert and a highlight with Theo. I have been to many different hair salons in New York, and my highlight and my haircut were the best I have ever experienced while living in New York all these years. Theo was great, my highlights were done so carefully and turned out to look so natural, I have never been more pleased with hair color in my life. Robert's haircut was superb. Before I even got my hair washed, he sat me down and asked me what I wanted for my hair, while also giving me suggestions to how he could cut my hair to fit my lifestyle, I had never been to a hair dresser before who was more concerned on what I wanted over what he/she wanted to do. Along with a excellent haircut and highlights, the atmosphere of the Robert Stuart Salon was a major plus. After experiencing many different salon environments, this salon was the best yet. Everyone in his staff was very nice and concerned about my satisfaction with their service. I appericated that a lot. I highly recommend the Robert Stuart Salon to anyone who wants to receive the best haircut and color in New York, while also feeling extremely comfortable in a salon. Never in my life have I received this many comments about my hair from not only friends but random strangers.

This was the worst salon experience i have ever had. The owner was very rude to a member of his staff while i was waiting. I also had the worst hair cut of my life. I will not say her name (so the owner is not rude to her too). But she did not listen to a word i said. My hair is longer on one side than the other and she seemed very nervous cutting my hair, it took FOREVER. I do not think she has been cutting hair for very long. I also had to wait over 40 min as she was late. The staff was very nice at the reception and the guy who did my shampoo. I will never return. Bad energy here, the air is thick with it. Too small and there were people upset all over the place. One woman was sitting out side with wet hair as there was no place for her to sit.

Cons: everything

Natalie was nice enough but I?m not at all pleased with my cut. I feel like it was a waste of $60. She hardly did anything. It?s the first time in my life I walked out without leaving a tip. The whole process took about 30 min., if that. I showed her a pic of what I wanted and she quickly nixed it. I listened to her b/c I have very fine, thin hair and I understand that there are a lot of styles that just will not work on me. However, I told her that I didn?t want a plain, old boring bob; I wanted it to be a little edgier. I have had some layering in the past and it worked out well. Well, what do you think I got? And it?s not even cut evenly. By the time she finished cutting my hair was almost dry so she spent about two minutes styling it and I walked out of there with flat, limp hair. Thankfully, I was going straight home b/c I would have been embarrassed to go out looking like that. I got the impression she was running a little bit behind schedule b/c she interrupted my cut to discuss styles with her next customer and had done the same to the customer before me when I came in. I will not be going back to this salon.

I have been living in NY for three and half years now. I was in desperate need of a haircut but have been severly disapointed in the past by other salons. I found robert stuarts on craigslists and i am so happy i did! I have very light blond curly hair. Curly hair isn't something easily cut bc i also make it strait so it really needs a good cut so it looks good both ways. Cindy cut my hair and did a fantastic job i also got highlights which really i was terrified would come out all trashy and over done and fake. It didn't it looked completly natural and very light. Just what i had wanted. They listed to me and my needs and i was very pleased with the outcome! Thank you! I will go back there in heartbeat!

My regular salon was booked for the evening and I needed my haircut that this past Friday night. I picked out Robert Stuart Salon just off the internet. I was a bit at unease going to a new salon but I am glad I tried it out. I had Natalie as my hairdresser and she recommended that I go for a disjointed layer haircut. She was very enthusiastic about it. I took the risk and love it. She is very responsive and receptive to your concerns and so is the rest of the staff. The salon is small and intimate and so you don't feel like a customer amongst many. The price is great too. I am definitely coming back.

I have wanted more than a cut for a long time. I have wanted style. I just didn't know what style. I have looked through books at men's styles but have never know whether one is right for me and my hair or not.\r
I walked into Robert Stuart Salon out of the blue and was seen immediately. Natalie asked me what I wanted. I told her that I was putting my trust in her and wanted her to tell me what to do. She took the time to talk to me, and showed me in the mirror what she thought would work. Natalie then worked a wonder. I didn't get just a cut; I got the style I have always wanted. I am very pleased with the results and plan on returning.

I've been going to robert for almost 20 years. It is a warm, friendly salon, but with style. Haircuts take into account ones lifestyle needs. Not only that they have a great little jwewlery display that Valerie, Robert's wife keeps stocked with great reasonably priced pieces. Great haircuts, some jewelery, and in the neighborhood. What more could one want.

Natalie greated me when I arrived and she's delightful. We talked about how I want to wear my hair and she gave me excellent advice from the very start. I couldn't be happier with Natalie and the entire experience.
