Jessica-Better Curly cut than Devachan – Jessica gave me her card when she saw me at a cafe in our neighborhood, so I scheduled an appointment not really knowing what I was getting into. I have been going to her for over a year now and have been happy with my hair every time (although, once I thought I would try something different and didn't like the outcome--but the cut was EXACTLY correct and looked just like the one in the Arrojo magazine, which I applaud her for).
I have very fine, curly hair. I wear it with bangs and really short layers for a fun and funky look. Jessica has great style and knows how to give me the exact cut I want. I've tried Devachan and do not think the prices are worth it--especially when I can go to Arrojo, which has such a clean and inviting atmosphere. It is honestly such a relaxing experience to get your hair done there and I love all of the products.
See Jessica, you really won't be disappointed.
Love this place... and Amy!! – I have to high-five the user who posted directly below me, because i also see Amy and Cheryl (for color and cut respectively) and love them both!!!!! (and to the user who posted below that... are you on crack?)
Amy's been making my VERY brown hair blond and fabulous for four years now!! I would recommend her to anyone - she always makes sure i leave happy, and most of my friends (who haven't known me that long) think im a natural blonde :)
Ive only been seeing Cheryl for about a year now, but she's the first stylist who actually listens when i ask not to have too much length taken off. I've cried before after bad haircuts - but no tears with this one yet! haha.
Really, would recommend this salon to anyone - and they have a cafe with a coffee bar and food if you get hungry during your 3 hour visits (im high maintenance, what can i say?:))
AMY AND CHERYL = TEAM AWESOME – My best friend suggested I go to Arrojo when first moved to NYC three years ago. She told my with great confidence to see Amy for my color and Cheryl for a hair cut. I am so happy to say that these two amazing ladies have taken my over processed (I was a bit of a bleach highlight junkie) hair and turned it into a head turning do. Seriously. It is not a day in my life if I don't get a compliment from a stranger.
First of all Amy is hands down the queen of red hair. I am a natural blonde and I have always wanted perfect natural looking red hair. For years I fooled around with different shades at my old salon, never quite finding it, and the first time I walk into arrojo and sat in amy's chair she nailed it. The perfect red vibrant with out looking fake and just the right shade of red with out looking orange or brassy. She is meticulous with her work. She always checks and double checks the continuity of my freshly dyed roots with the rest of my color. She is absolutely amazing. She is fantastic at what she does, and a joy to sit and chat with while she works.
On that faithful first visit, after sitting with Amy and receive my ideal red, I moved on to Cheryl for a cut. We talked about it and decided to go with a bob. Loved it, and kept it for a few months, then We added bangs 1920's style and it has become my trademark look. I have been rocking this short structured look for about a year now and it gets just as many compliments as my color. Much like Amy Cheryl also has a delightful personality and is easy to sit with and chat while she trims my hair with ease.
Hands down arrojo is my favorite salon and Amy and Cheryl are awesome!
been there done that! unfortunately!!! – we used to see amy, i say we- my best friend and i- and used to- because we'll never go back!
we both feel as though we've been mugged and duped!
when we went in, she would talk in circles and confuse us and i think herself.
she wasn't the friendliest person every time we were in, but to give her credit she was nice once or twice. the way she would talk to her helpers was just RUDE! no personal touch to the others she worked with. and a bit bossy.
and as for the color(?) appalling at times. mine was so flat and almost greenish (i can't even explain actually but the salon i went to for a fix said khaki and mucky)
when i went in to get it fixed with her- i walked out feeling like i was stupid because she made me feel that way! of course after being dragged in a circle i couldn't put into to words what i wanted!
and my friend went in for a fix and ended up paying for it!!!! that was so ridiculous. she was made to feel she had asked for orange hair! is blonde supposed to be orange????
and the helper with my friend got a brow beating to put it nice. i would think it was the stylist fault and not the helper? isn't that who gets paid for the job?
i could go on- but since i've wasted so much time and been mugged enough in this horrible salon, i can't waste another second of my life on them!!!
one big plus is too bad it's not just a cafe. i did get a great cappuccino and cookie. but again it's not worth crossing the threshold to give another dime to this (insert word of choice that explains horrible)!
wow i feel great now that this is off my chest.
Seriously...Lourdes is the SH&% – I went to her based on the reviews I read here. I wanted to go red. I came in with virgin hair...never colored my hair in my life. I knew the change would be drastic. I was EXTREMELY nervous. She spoke to me for about 5min...getting to know me a bit. Looked at me finally and said...you can rock this...are you ready...At this point I felt nauseus. Anyway....the color was PERFECT! As soon as the assistant started blowing me out, I was a new person...I felt in such good hands. I was me but better. I want to praise Lourdes for her skills and also for making me feel like a new woman. I will definitely come back. Arrojo was a great experience and Lourdes is everything they say she is. Thanks again!
LOURDES LOURDES LOURDES – I' ve been going to Lourdes since she was doing models in her apprenticeship (3yrs ago). I'ver never had someone be so creative with my hair. She always says my hair is easy because my natural is so light. but I've been to other places where all evidence points to the contrary. I am a bleach and tone now, she just recently did it...I also have a few periwinkle pieces infused in the hair and it looks STUNNING. The salon is HUGE, really beautiful space. Her assistants are always great and easygoing. I love love going to Lourdes, sometimes I have to cheat on her since I travel a lot for work and I always regret it. I love her personality, she's super easy to get along with. The only thing is, she likes to be in charge, you can have your imput but at the end of the day she wants you to trust her skills. I do wholeheartedly...but if your someone who need things explained 100 times you might want someone else. However, trusting Lourdes with my hair is one of the best things I've ever done for myself. Love Arrojo Studio!
Consistent and beautiful hair! – I've been to Arrojo several times and the staff is so professional and friendly. I had my haircut by the wonderful John Shannon, he is so attentive and detailed. I go in open about the end result and I am always very happy!!!!!
John is wonderful with short hair, he can do a terrific classic bob or something sleek and modern!!!He is also great to visit if you need a an awesome blow-out for a night out or an event!
Great work by awesome people!
travel to magical lands of arrojo – i love this place. this place is like therapy. it's like.... a therapeutic mind / body / hair rejuvenation session complete with herbal teas / coffee (or cappuccino or a latte) / cookies / head massages, elegant black robes, and relationship / life advice counseling sessions with emily carroll and ashley kowalski.
i do cuts with emily - who usually envisions the look i'm going for for even before i know it myself (i kinda think she might be some kind of magical hair nymph from lord of the rings). usually after she's done i transcend reality into another dimension and i morph into some rare species of new york city's blonde nymphs or other fae-like equivalent.
I do my color (highlights) with ashley kowalski. i have no idea how this girl does it (maybe it's the extensive skills training that all arrojo stylists are required to take, maybe it's her undeniably obvious knowledge about what's cool, maybe it's her impeccable style....?) but the overall feeling of euphoria upon leaving the salon is a phenomenon i am currently incapable of describing with words. translation = if you are blonde and you like to look hot, ask for ashley kowalski.
if you dont go here, you're basically missing out on feeling like Cleopatra for a day! Go HERE!
REDHEADS=LOURDES 4 COLOR – Lourdes and I have been through a LOT with my hair. I wanted to do something 'normal' to go with my new job. She told me red was my color, that it was fun to play with. Anyway...We did it!!! It is the MOST amazing shade I've ever had. It's so preety and shiny. I left feeling a bit shocked, but I really love it now. Lourdes I love you! Thx for making me look HOT!
Inconsistent - from the top down – I've been to Nick 3 times and his wife 2 times. Of the five times I've been to the salon, I've gotten 2 good cuts. My main issue with Nick is his attitude. If you're not willing to put yourself in his hands completely [like you're a specimen on What Not to Wear], he becomes rather dismissive. God forbid, you should actually have an opinion about how you want to look. The first cut I got from him was excellent though and it lasted a solid 8 weeks. The last one was a disaster and I had to get it recut elsewhere 3 weeks later. I will not return. The other gripe I have is the constant pushing of product. The problem is that the products - from shampoos to conditioners to brushes - are the worst I've ever used. Absolutely awful. I spent hundreds on products and brushes and literally threw every last item away. The bottles were full.
