Best Salon in Manhattan – House of Signorelli, on New York’s Upper East Side, is the perfect combination of expert hair care, serene setting and convenient location for both women and men. I followed Linda (color) and Maria (cut) here several years ago, when they moved from another salon. The salon itself is an oasis of understated elegance, decorated in cool neutrals, mirrors and wonderful flowers that vary with the seasons. There is never any rushing about, time pressure or diva “angst” that personifies many top salons in New York. Linda Blanchard does my color; she always listens carefully to my concerns and gives me a very natural look. Robert has seen me through “long and flowing” and “short and perky”, and everything in between. The best thing about Robert and Linda – I never look like I’m “growing something out”, even if I am! This is very important to me, as I am an attorney in the financial services industry and "bad hair" is just not an option. I have also gone to Tom and Maria when Robert or Linda wasn’t available. Maria is incredibly talented with the scissors; her cuts are always precise and elegant. Tom is a master colorist with many celebrity “heads” as clients. I have sometimes been surprised to realize that the lady in Tom’s chair is a celebrity.
The salon also offers manicures, pedicures and waxing services. Robert also does Dermaplaning, which (until now) was my top secret for flawless skin.
I always enthusiastically recommend House of Signorelli to my friends and colleagues, and every most who has tried the salon agrees that it is the best place in New York to relax and take care of your most important accessory – your hair!
Hair Artistry – Tom Signorelli is an artist with color!! He has been doing my hair color for ten years. I walk out of his salon and within ten minutes someone has stopped me to say how beautiful my hair is!! He spends the time to really look at you and consider what works best with your skin tone. He then goes about painting your hair. It has depth and the results are a very natural, I never look or feel like my hair has been dyed. The products he uses are so wonderful that my hair feels so healthy when I leave the salon and I am always amazed that the color holds for long. In the past when I was going to other salons the color would quickly wash out and fade within a couple of weeks, not with the products Tom uses, the color stays beautifully. I also love the environment of the salon. Great attention has been paid to the details, and it is a restful, and peaceful place to spend a few hours as opposed to the chaos of many salons the House of Signorelli is a lovely calm and charming place to hang out. I can't recommend them enough!!
Never Go Anywhere Else – I have been going to Tom and Robert for over 10 years, and I have not gotten my haircut anywhere else in all that time! Robert does such a good job that I'm terrified to get it done anywhere else. Robert also does the La Brasiliana keratin treatment on my hair, which is an absolute life changer. My air has always been really curly and frizzy, but the La Brasiliana has changed my life. I love my hair now, thanks to Signorelli!
highly recommend – I have known Tom and Robert for years and have never strayed. Tom is a master at knowing what color works with your skin tones. He is patient and will discuss the options with you, but I say - trust him. He can make your blond hair look the way it did when you were a child. Robert is an extremely gifted stylist who spends the time to get to know you and it just gets better. No cookie cutter cuts here - He can go edgy or refined, depending on what you want. Also, his cuts last. A full service salon, friendly people and relaxed. Not inexpensive but worth it.
Highly recommend – I have had two excellent hair cuts at Signorelli, as well as a body wave. On all three occasions, it was a pleasure to be at the salon; Robert and Tom are both extremely helpful and patient, full of expertise and ready to discuss options and details. I tend to be nervous about entrusting my hair to others, but they are friendly and actually listen to what I want. This place must be a cherished upper east side secret, because otherwise there would be way more reviews already, and I'm sure they would all be glowing. Signorelli is pricey, but the quality, consistency and personal attention are well worth it. My whole family (three generations with a spread of more than sixty years) swears by this place
Quality cuts and color in a homey atmosphere. – The Scene
Located on the ground floor of a quiet East Side townhouse, this tiny, two-seat salon comes complete with a garden patio for post-service relaxation. Started in 1998 by Tom Signorelli (color and chemical services) and Robert Donnelly (cuts, styling and hair treatments), House of Signorelli has a low-key vibe and a clientele of men, women, out-of-towners and locals. But chances are you'll never notice the other clients, since the attention to you and your needs really is personal and detailed.
The personal touch is exemplified by the Furterer hair treatment, in which a computerized sensor analyzes and determines the condition of your scalp and hair, after which the recommended oils, masks and conditioners are applied. Customized for each client, the Furterer treatment makes hair shiny, smooth and problem-free for days afterward. The salon also carries a very extensive line of top-notch beauty and lifestyle products.
Great cut – They do a great job, in a pleasant atmosphere - one of the best haircuts I've ever had
