Ray is amazing. He gave me the signature anti-frizz treatment and my curls are so much more defined. He understands that curly girls dont necessarly want straight. Hair, and his goal is to help you love your curls. The whole Christo fifth avenue experience is like being in a spa.

I recently had a wonderful experience at Christo. It was more than i usually like to spend on a cut but with my regular stylist moving to an inconvenient location, I decided to finally break down make an appt at Christo which I'd heard great things about. My senior stylist Rosa was so knowledgable, attentive, and had such a meticulous approach to cutting my hair. I was really impressed and would definitely recommend her and the salon to anyone who's had to suffer through bad cookie cutter haircuts. It's definitely worth the price.

I came to Christo Fifth Ave after hearing about it from my mom. I decided to give it go with Ray for my prom night. He was very attentive to every detail and always had me in mind when coming up with the perfect hairstyle for my special night. I brought in my dress to show him and he made plenty of sketches of what to do to my hair before presenting me with his best idea. After many runs with horrible blow outs and up dos, I was nervous, but continued believing in him. It was the right choice because my hair came out beautiful! There was so much detail in my hair from the single braid in the center to the carefully woven locks held by bobby pins. He also did my make-up! I have a babyface, and to be honest, I was tired of the cutesy look. I didn't even need to tell him I was tired of it because he transformed me into someone with a mature-edge. Thanks Ray! I rocked prom with my up do and make up! ;)

Christo was great! I always knew my hair was curly, but I was never able to show them when they were dry. He was able to bring that out and make it stay that way. I'm so glad he taught me how to style my hair properly because now, I can at least do it at home. Instead of being a 2C part of the time, I can be that all of the time now :)

my hair was a mess, it has been a mess for years since I moved here with my fiance from Portland. I found Ray through my coworker from my acting job.

It has been a while since I had my last cut and highlights and it was way over due. Then I went with a friend who has been going to the salon for years and she encouraged me to give it a try. I gotta tell you, I could be a pain in the butt when it comes to my hair( I've had so many bad experiences). I was first introduced to Ray, a senior stylist at Christo Salon, he literally spent 20 minutes talking to me and asking numerous questions about my hair, my daily routine and what I like about it and what I don't like about it, then I finally gave him a try. After a full 2 1/2 hour of service(shampoo/cut/color/under the dome dryer/diffusing), my hair completely transformed. My usually big, fluffy and frizzy hair is now this tamed, beautiful spiral curls. I have never seen my curls this good!!! Not to mention my highlights, it is so natural and very subtle, I would totally recommend him. Too bad I can only see him probably 2-3 times a year, my service came out to about $450. ; ( Stacey

Christo is an absolute doll! His methodology is truly something else! Stepping into the salon, I already knew this place was gonna be worth the bucks. I've been around here and there, trying to find my IT salon and I think I've found it! This man knows exactly what he's talking about. No hesitance, straight-forward, and very understanding. He heeded to my wishes of having it cut short, keeping it long in the back, and making it look good! By the way, even the products he used smelled nice - I had none of the chemical odor nonsense in my hair! Not only did I end up purchasing their shampoos and conditioner, but their bio gel mousse too! And I have to say, the mousse is one of the smartest things I bought for hair like mine! Thanks Christo! You'll definitely be seeing more of me around!

I expected nothing less when I walked into Christo Fifth Avenue. It lived up to all the rave and then some. The scene was rich and warm, filled with the drones of blow-dryers and the scent of shampoo. But forget about the scene for a second because the people there are even more welcoming. Not only does the receptionist have a sense of humor and class, but Christo himself was entertaining. Christo's personality made it comfortable for me to tell him exactly how I would like my hair. Most of the time, I’m greeted by stylists who insist on a certain method. He taught me how I can get my hair to get my hair that way and gave me a few extra tips on daily hair up-dos. Another thing I love about him is his confidence and precision. I’ve never felt so assured that my hair would come out looking beautiful before it was even done being cut. And it totally did! Not to toot my own horn, but I looked amazing! I was totally digging the products as well, and they were kind enough to give me a list of what they used. This is the kind of salon where you exit looking beautiful and knowing that it was money well spent!

I’m the kind of person that finds it hard to be comfortable in new places and the reason why I came here is because I really needed to tame my hair and the place I usually go to closed down. Upon walking into Christo Fifth Avenue, the atmosphere is warm and light. There is plenty of sunlight and the receptionist is so welcoming. I didn’t feel as nervous as I thought I would. As I waited to consult with Christo, I was offered refreshments and a short survey. I’m sure this is supposed to be typical of a top salon, but I’m not used to going to nice places like these and it was invigorating. When Christo came out to talk to me, I told him exactly how I managed my hair and he gave me great of tips on what I can do and how I should style it. He later showed me precisely how it’s done when I got my haircut. My previous salon always wanted to relax my hair, but I almost always refused because I wanted to keep my curls. Christo, on the other hand, completely embraced my curls. The dull color of my hair came to life as he carved away at my monstrous hair. Despite the fact that it’s Friday the 13th, I felt that I’ve been very lucky. I left the salon confident that I have found my new salon and stylist. Anyone who can make me feel amazing and comfortable the first time around has earned my loyalty.

The first time I heard of this salon was through its product, Curlisto, which my sister introduced me to. It worked like magic and really tamed my outrageously kinky curls. I thought, if the products work, then it won’t hurt to give the salon a try! If you have curly hair, you probably know the fear having your hair cut, but this salon has got it down! The reviews raving about Christo's patience did him justice. I didn’t think anyone would spend so much time discussing my hair. His vast knowledge gave me a sense of security when the time came to cut it off and the end result was beautiful! I got hit on the moment I walked out onto the streets. Thank you Christo and everyone at the salon! With my new haircut and products, I feel like I can dominate the world.

After countless of bad haircuts from stylists who claim to know curly hair, I decided to give it one last shot with Christo Fifth Avenue last week. It was the best decision I have ever made. The $495 that I spent (with Christo himself) was well worth it because no one has ever styled my hair the way this salon has. Christo spent a generous time getting know my hair and teaching my how to style it healthily. And you know what? The next day, my hair was still beautiful and glowing! I walked out of that salon looking like Angelina Jolie at the Oscars! I returned today for a blowout from Ray, who is an exceptional senior stylist. Not only did I find a salon to call my own, but it's a salon that truly understands what curly girls need! Thank you Christo for being so patient and giving me tips on what to do with my hair. I love your products and you have a beautiful salon! You definitely have a client for life.

I created this account just to rave about Christo. When it comes to curly hair, he is an absolute curl genius! He is not only educated and thoughtful, but he takes great pride in his work and interest in your hair. He gives his undivided attention to your curls and works meticulously – so don’t expect a quick in and out experience, but expect a great haircut. Not only did my curls look beautiful and healthy, but Christo has also introduced me to a wide selection of curly hair products. He truly understands hair and knows how to make curly girls feel at home.

I came to Christo, after countless bad haircuts, with dry, brittle, dull hair (which I used to straighten by pulling at the hair dryer) and it changed my (hair) life! Alice is not only knowledgeable and very caring, but she takes such pride in her work and interest in your hair. My hair is now healthy, shiny and -- under Alice's talented hands -- styled, using my naturally curly (3A) locks, in a manner that suits my face, my lifestyle (simple and easy) -- sort of). Everyone has complimented me on my "new look!" I totally credit Alice for helping me change the way I look and the way I take care of my hair -- a change that she did not 'impose' on me, but gently guided me through in her soft, understanding, empathetic manner. It's hard to see a major change when you look in the mirror every day, but I've noticed the difference in recent photos of myself -- I look totally different, much more attractive, and very much more stylish. I would recommend Christo's salon and Alice, in particular, to anyone with curly hair! Elaine K.

Christo 5th Avenue is a haven for curly hair girls. I have curly (type 3) hair which tends to have two volumes, big and bigger. My hairdresser is Rosa who listens, advices and ultimately gives me a beautiful cut and perfect curls. I am of spanish descent with thick curls and very often my experiences with downtown salons leave me disappointed because they either can't or dont know how to cut or style my hair. If you have experienced such disappointments in the past, please go see Rosa you wont be disappointed. Additionally, the salon is elegant yet low key, nobody is pushing products and everyone is friendly and customer oriented.

I have been seeing Alice for over a year now and she has been a god-send. After the birth of both my daughters, I lost alot of hair and Alice cut and styled my hair in such a way that it minimized the awkwardness of my hair during this transitional phase. She truly knows how to cut and style curly hair. I have seen so many stylists who simply do not know how to cut curly hair. I have received alot of compliments! She takes time to listen to what you want and gives you an easy to maintain beautiful cut.

dont believe the hype.. first let me say, i'm 2 yrs natural and needed a trim, which normally i do myself with much success..my good friend has gone to tameeka and raved about her. So i took a chance. Tameeka is very educated when it comes to natural hair. i'm a 4a/4b and she had my curls defined. she cares more about the method of achieving defined curls then the products used. But my main purpose was to get a cut and her cut was horrible. my hair was SUPER short in the middle ( 2 inches ) and the front was very uneven- one side was noticable shorter then the other. and the back was super long 6+ inches. I normally wear my hair stretched so this haircut is definitely something I cant hide that well. I mentioned my experience to my good friend and she too had the same problem- uneven, botched hair cut.. she went to diane da costa who fixed her cut from tameeka. would i recommend tameeka- probably not, but i'm sure there are other stylists who will do a better job and not at the price her salon charges ($130)..damn 5th ave salons lol. now off to hide in some braids for a few months until i get my length back :( major setback in my hair goals.

This is my second time going to a professional stylist who can cut my hair in its natural state. I was adament about finding someone that would not have to straighten my hair first and then cut. My first experience left me with an uneasy feeling about going to professionals period for a cut and style. But after some research and reviewing many website reviews for Tameeka, I had to make an appointment. I had an awesome experience with her. She not only styled my hair and shaped it perfectly, she took the time to educated me about my hair type and how to care for it going forward, even going into the complexities of how much product my hair needs at various points of my hair, as it's SUPER DUPER THICK (especially no top) and I've been struggling with maintaining consistent styling because I have multiple curl types on my head. I took her advice on how to acheive the same look through self styling. I left the solon to recieve multiple compliments as I walked home. She is a down to earth lady, who is a great communicator and a GEM of a stylist. I'll definitely be back to Christo's on Fifth just for her.

I am totally delighted with my new cut from Alice at Christo's salon in NYC. I had been to her years ago and that cut was good, but this is sensational. I think the difference is that my hair is in much better condition since I have learned so much at nc.com. I highly recommend Alice to everyone. I've been to others at Christo and for a while I was going to Mark at the Frederik Fekkai salon, but nothing compares to this. She got my curls to have volume on top with perfect layering which was exactly what I wanted. She took my face shape into account. This is really A+++. The salon is lovely, specializing in curly cuts. The hair was cut wet, but I like this cut better than the 2 I got at Devachan because it falls evenly. It's a really cute, short, sassy cut - perfect and just what I wanted! I was treated in a gracious manner and served iced lime water since it was broiling outside and later hot coffee (since I'm an addict regardless of the temperature). Anyone who has any questions, please feel free to pm me. The cut was $155 (worth it!) and she spent a long, unhurried time showing me how to do it. I don't follow her instructions at home and yet my hair looks great. Nothing works like a great cut. Thank you Alice!!!

I was so excited when I first arrived at christo fifth avenue salon because that was my decision and christo was going to be my stylist. After 20 min. of consultation, drawing, and designing my new look, he started his magic work and 2 hours later, there was a whole new me with beautiful curls. My red color was shiny for the first time in my life. I guess it makes a difference when you go to someone who is a legend of the knowledge of curly hair. It was the first time I walked out of a salon without crying about someone who damaged my curls. He was so nice and he gave me a prescription of how to use his Curlisto products without pushing me to buy anything. But of course, I bought a few products because I love the way my hair looked and felt. They also gave me some samples. Thank you christo you have a client for life.

I am an African-American girl with very kinky curly texture. Every salon I went so far, wanted to relax my hair. Finally I found Christo after doing some research. He really changed my beauty life. He used his treatment that is called Curlisto re-conditioning. It’s amazing how this treatment took all the dryness and kinkiness from my curls. So now I can wear my natural texture and I can style it easier with my new favorite product called defining lotion from the natural coils. So Christo thank you very much for making me be proud of my hair again. By the way I love your salon and staff. I had a great time last week.

I was debating on where to get my curly hair cut, I decided to take advantage of a Naturally Curly sale and get it done at Christo's on 5th. I also made an appt  for my mother, who use to be a stylist years ago and was always picky about who cut her hair. The salon is beautiful, from the moment you walk in everyone is friendly!! Our stylist was Alice!!! She asked us questions and actually listened!! My Mom was up first, much to my surprise she was comfortable with letting Alice cut her hair. When Alice was done with cutting, she is meticulous about it, my Mom's natural curls were beautiful. (She usually wears it straight) I sent photos to my Sisters and they were surprised at the results. My Mom actually complimented Alice, that never happens!!!  When Alice was cutting my hair she knew I was apprehensive about my length, she sensed it. She informed me that if I wanted to go shorter, I could come back within two weeks and she'd gladly cut it shorter for free. Needless to say I went back and Alice cut it shorter. I love it!!! I also loved my experience there. I recommend it and plan to continue to get my hair done there!!!

Alice was great. I went to her after reading Christo reviews online...I was debating between Ouidad and Christo 5th Ave and on a hunch, chose to go with Christo. My hair seems to have lost some umph since I was hit with a 10-day tropical bug. I've been really anxious - my curls seemed limp, my hair thinner. Alice helped me understand that these effects may be irreversible, and while I'm not giving up, she revived what I do have! Beyond that, Alice is clearly very knowledgable, and truly cares about helping curlies stay happy and healthy. She's also really easy to talk to. The woman who washed my hair gave me a fantastic head massage -- twice. To top it all off, Alice wrote me a letter with her tips and her styling suggestions so that I can recreate her work on my own. I haven't exactly recreated the look at home, but I'm pretty happy with what I am able to do. (I'm used to low-maintenance styling...) As for the product line, I find that while the hold is good and strong, my hair feels rather stiff. I am going to keep trying the Curlisto, Ouidad and a combination of the two until I find what works best with my 3b/a head!

Tameeka is awesome. I travel all the way from CT every 6 months to get my hair cut and styled by her. She knows exactly how to make my hair look the best and I always get tons of complements when she's through!! I have tight curls and she's an expert at cutting and coloring them in a way that highlights my unique curl pattern and texture. I will continue to travel because to me it's totally worth it. My hair is super long now ever since I went to her for my first BC ( big chop)... all stretched out my hair is now down to my lower back. The Curlisto product line is also fabulous! it leaves your curls defined but soft and shiny. The salon itself is a pampering experience for any curly head, you'll feel like a queen and the staff is so nice and attentive. Gotta love it!!!

I usually only save up 400 dollar for a pair of nice shoes or a handbag. I never thought of spending that much for a haircut. Not only but i went all out got my coils hi-lite-ted for 380 But after experiencing bad haircuts over last 6 years , I decided to finally invest that money in my hair. So I booked an appointment with Christo thanks to your web side reviews and it was the best decision I could have made for myself. He spent a lot of time consulting with me about my hair texture and what cut would work best for my face shape. He told me what I have been doing wrong with my hair for all these years that has been causing the dryness and the frizz; then he gave me tips on how to style my hair and do the treatment at home. I was just amazed when I looked in the mirror before I left the salon. A visit with Christo is a true experience. Finally my hair looks just as good as my wardrobe!!!!

Stylist: Alice

I am so thankful to have found Alice! I used to be so frustrated with my hair and felt that I had no control. That all changed 3 years ago when I found Christo Fifth Avenue through an online search and was partnered with Alice. I would never think of going anywhere else and if I happen to ever move, you bet I will be arranging my visits back around Alice's availability!

Stylist: christo is the king

Christo is a miracle worker.That is way people call him the KING, I have always disliked my curly hair.I could never control it.It controlled me.After one visit my hair was completely transformed. I love my hair .I never thought it could look this good. Even in humid weather it looks great. Christo gives a fantastic cut and his products are the best. He spends a lot of time teaching you how to style and care for your hair.Anyone who is challenged with curly hair should make an appointment with Christo. You will NOT be dissapointed. I could not recommend him more highly.was no push on any e Lotion and the mask im going back for more ,mproducts I try few of them very happy specially thy curls looks amazing!

Stylist: christo

ok i try a lot of stylist in new york and I was get in to the point ether shave my head or spend some more money to see this stylist name christo I herd was the king of curls and his celebrity's fave . Let me tell you having curly hair is been difficult deal in with my style christo spend 15 min just explain to me dos and don't s and how he will cut it so I will have easy time styling my curls . By the time he finish my curls looked amazing no frizz no dryness just shine and definition is by far the best cut ever had in my life . Also gave me a styling lesson and let me try to style my own so i can follow up at home. so far I'm loving my curls ,so thank you christo!

Stylist: christo

went to christo for a bio softener. First of all, the salon is gorgeous, christo very knowledgeable and everyone is very friendly and helpful. My hair has never looked better. He is a genius. She goes over everything before she touches your hair to make sure that you are comfortable.He also gives you a mini style lesson so that you can recreate your new look at home. I have never been so in love with my curls! Before I went there I had the worst hair cut on the planet but after christo was finished with me my hair looked gorgeous- words cant describe. I haven't felt as beautiful as I feel now since I went natural six months ago and it definitely feels good to feel attractive again! The Bio Softener is the best of both worlds. You get to keep your curls but they are made looser and less frizzy. It's great! So head over the christo and book an appointment with him- also gave me spacial formula to take care my hair his product is life saving

Stylist: Rosa

i went into this salon a couple of weeks ago. Having curly hair all my life, its difficult to trust new stylists. From the minute I walked into the salon I felt at home. Rosa was great..and very down to earth. She gave me one of the best cuts I've had in years She really explained how to style my hair and use the products correctly. i will definitely come back for future trims. Rosa is the best!

Stylist: Rosa

Rosa is great!!! I went to her 3 years ago to get my hair cut shorter for my senior pictures and my hair cut was amazing. I went back to her this summer and she worked her magic again! The cut was perfect and she took a lot of the bulkiness in the center. I am a 3B/3C and she hooked me up! DEFINITELY worth the money. I've tried other salons for different things (blow outs, small trims, etc.) which work for the most part, but cutting curly hair is no joke. Thank you Rosa!!!

Stylist: Tameeka

I had a haircut with Tameeka yesterday. I was somewhat anxious about getting my hair cut as I'd only been getting trims for the last two years. I also have at least four different textures on my head (left side-loose waves, right side-curlier and thicker, top back-even curlier and very highly porous, nape hair-baby fine hair that is almost straight). My hair was a little longer than BSL and one length. I'd had the Ouidad cut on multiple occasions, but didn't like having one length or "flat" hair. I like my hair big. I also wanted to retain as much length as possible, but knew I needed a trim and my perimeter evened out (I'd been conducting search and destroys for months). I also wanted some face framing layers and layers in the back that would "round" my hair out and reduce/eliminate the mushroom (hat and stalk) effect with which I have always struggled due to the tight curls on top of the barely wavy nape hair. When I tell you I walked out with everything that I wanted, I am not kidding you!!! Every question I had, Tameeka answered. I thought I already knew a lot about using products, but she taught me applications methods with which I wasn't the least familiar. Tameeka was amazing and the salon was great. Even though it is on Fifth Ave in NYC, it wasn't the slightest bit pretentious!! It was actually cozy and comfortable!! I will definitely be going back to Tameeka when it's time to cut again. It is so hard to find someone you trust with your curly hair and I am so happy to know that I've finally found that person!! My avatar pic is my hair after the cut. LOVE it and can't wait to style it myself and with a few homemade concoctions I've found on NC.com (flax seed gel) and youtube (kimmaytube's pH balanced leave-in recipe with some ingredient modifications).

Stylist: Tameeka

I have never been to a salon and felt so welcomed,Tameeka knows everything there is to know about hair and really gives it her all I got my hair trimmed and styled and the knowledge I gained there is the most I've ever known about hair anyone in need of a wonderful stylist in NY, Please find your way to Christo 5th Ave to see Tameeka she is get and knows everything there is to know about 4a/4b hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stylist: Alice

Alice in Christo is fantastic! I don't know why it was so hard for me to find a great hairstylist who could give me a stylish haircut, but it took me YEARS to finally find Alice. She is extremely talented. You can tell that working with hair is truly her craft, and she truly cares about being the best. I am very happy with Alice, and will always go back to her!

Stylist: Tameeka

I can NOT say enough about how wonderful Tameeka is. She is so patient and so knowledgable about curls. My daughter is 7 years old and we live in Virginia. We have searched high and low for someone who knows what they are doing with her hair (she is bi-racial and has extremely curly hair). We drove to NYC to see Tameeka based on reviews I had read. She was so incredibly kind and really really took her time to talk through my daughters hair and what products work best and what techniques work best. She also talked to my daughter on her level, she didn't just ignore her like previous stylists did. She shared all sorts of tips with me to get the same results at home etc and I have (thought my version doesn't last as long but I will figure that part out on my next visit) I have NO problem at all driving to NYC to see Tameeka again. She has also made herself available to me since we saw her in person - she is just amazing. My daughter of course "hates" her hair but since Tameeka has very similar hair she really gave my daughter a pep talk about loving her hair and how she should pay attention to all the models and people walking around NYC they all either try to have hair like hers or they do have her hair and they embrace it. Hearing this from someone like Tameeka (very genuine) sealed the deal for my little girl, she now "likes" her hair and doesn't ask me to straighten it anymore. I will take it! I am sure as she continues to see Tameeka, she will continue to embrace her curls and eventually love them! You can not go wrong making an appointment with her, she is truly talented and is extremely sweet and just an all around genuine person!

Stylist: Christo

Having curly hair has ALWAYS been a challenge and finding a good hairstylist seemed impossible until recently. I had been going to the same stylist for years and that's only because she did a decent job and I wanted to avoid a potential disaster b/c few ppl truly know how to deal with curly hair. My girlfriend forwarded me an email from her salon on Fifth Avenue. I checked out the website and decided to call for an appointment. I asked for the best (Christo). I was then told his price ($395) and told them that I would call back after looking at my schedule. I weighed the pros, the cons and my check book :) and finally agreed to go for it. I wasn't taking a risk, i was investing in my personal beauty. Christo was great. He educated me on my hair, consulted me on my expectations and was making me comfortable in no time. I left the salon feeling like a million bucks and will be back.

Stylist: Alice

Went to Alice to cut and style my hair for my graduation. It was prefect! She listened closely to the look I described, and made it happen with no fuss.I got this done the day before my graduation, and it held up great for the next three days! As always, the conversation was great.

Got another great cut and highlight from Alice. This time I went for super short yet very sexy cut. Perfect from the beach to the clubs. Alice also showed me ways to keep my hair healthy. Thx!

Stylist: Asya

Asya is an amazing colorist & stylist! I have fine, oily wavy hair and most cuts I get look terrible by the end of the day. Asya takes time to ask questions, get to know the hair, and works with you to acheieve the perfect cut & color. I have never been disappointed and always walk out looking great! I truly believe that Asya is amazing and am so glad I found her! My hair has never looked better.

Stylist: Sara

I booked a haircut with Sara because of the great reviews. I'm sad to say that the cut didn't work for me. While Sara was very nice and friendly (and yes, gave a fantastic scalp massage!), I walked out of there knowing something wasn't right. I confirmed my suspicions when I came home to find I had a really obviously awkward haircut. The layers didn't work and months later I am still growing them out. I bought the products and do my hair the Christo way and on some days it looks ok but ultimately, my hair is one length when you look at me from the front and a completely different length when I turn around. When I was getting the cut Sara told me the layers would "blend" and I wouldn't notice the differing lengths but that is not the case. My hair is a mess. I HATE it and wish my hair would grow faster so I can get it "fixed." I appreciate that the salon is dedicated to curls and they certainly make you feel good but a bad haircut is a bad haircut. I don't know how Sara's hair looks every other day but when I saw her she was having a bad hair day (that should have been a tip off for me!).

Stylist: Alice

FOR CURLY HAIR... ALICE IS YOUR GIRL I have never had a hair stylist who could cut my curly hair as good as she can. She is also amazing with color...knows exactly what I'm talking about every time I have a new idea. I have never been able to trust a hair stylist as much as Alice. I HIGHLY recommend her!

Stylist: Sara B

I always thought I had straight but frizzy hair and was frustrated because I always had to wear my hair back. Then, I happened to strike up a conversation w/ Sara one day while out and about in the city. I heard she was a senior stylist at a high end salon and as I talked to her about my hair troubles ( God bless her!) , she stated she suspected that I may actually have curly hair, which was a surprise to me. At her suggestion, I made and appt to see her at Christo Fifth Ave , and what she worked was nothing less than magic on my hair! I got my hair washed and conditioned ( including an AMAZING scalp massage) , and then she sat w/ me and showed me that my hair was indeed slightly curly! She patiently explained to me what I had been doing wrong in the past, and showed me how to use hair products and simple techniques to both enhance the natural curl in my hair or blow dry it straight if I wished. She then proceeded to give me one of the cutest and versatile haircuts of my life! It looks amazing both straight and curly! So if you have problem hair, I highly recommend you try Christo Fifth Ave and ask for Sara. The haircuts are a bit pricey, ranging from $95- $150+, but you definitely get what you pay for; these people know their stuff!

Stylist: Christo

I was pretty impressed of the haircut with Christo. He made me feel comfortable and assured me that I was in good hands. If you're looking for someone to cut, and someone who really knows how to cut curly hair, go to Christo, he is master at curly hair.

Stylist: Christo

I went to Christo and he knew how to cut curly hair. Christo cut my long 3a curls so that they form perfect ringlets. He did a great job thinning out some of the kinkier sections of my hair so it isn't as thick and tangly. Also, I'm always apprehensive about having my very long hair layered, but he did such a good job layering it I think I will definitely keep this cut. I love my hair! Thank you Christo!

Stylist: Christo

Christo is fantastic. It's absolutely the best haircut I have ever had! He understood how to cut my hair, complimented my curl, and even has his own line of products. Great salon, great stylist.

Stylist: Christo

I must recommend Christo to everyone! I have spent most of my adult life jumping from salon to salon trying to find a hair stylist I like. Nobody has really been able to cut my multi-textured curly hair. I always ended up with a mushroom square shape. Christo has made me believe in miracles! I am so happy with my cut for the first time in my life!

Stylist: Curlisto

I've been to many salons before I went to Christo Fifth Avenue. Since then I've never even thought of trying other salons. I really like the atmosphere there and each visit always makes me feel like a one-day queen. Christo is such an artist, he knows my curls well and always gives me a trendy style that suites my face shape, hair texture and personality.

Stylist: Curlisto

LOVE IT!!! I went to Curlisto for a haircut; I've always had a hard time finding someone who can help me with my curly hair. A lot of stylist are intimidated by how curly my hair actually is. Curlisto took his time finishing the cut with a beautiful blow dry. I loved the outcome. Thanks.

Stylist: SARA

Sara is a fantastic hair stylist! I do not live in NYC, but while living on the east coast, I would schedule my vacations to NYC around times for cuts/colors. I have straight hair with body and it can be difficult to cut but Sara has given me the best cuts and colors. I have received many compliments on my hair from friends saying how good my hair looks. It feels great to hear that your hair has never looked better. Sara takes time to ask questions, get to know the hair, and communicates very well. I am very sad that I now live on the west coast and can’t get to NYC for my “hairapy”. Sara is extremely talented, gifted, and professional. It is easy to see that she has a passion for what she does.

Stylist: Sara

Go see SARA!!! I promise you won't be disappointed. I have been seeing Sara for awhile now and I always leave her chair with a huge smile on my face. I have naturally curly hair and the first time I went to see Sara I was frustrated because I had absolutely no idea what to do with it! Sara gave me some wonderful tips, great color, and a spectacular cut! Now my curls look fabulous because I actually know what to do with them! But I still like to wear my hair straight, so Sara has given me a style that I can wear both ways and I LOVE it! Talk about talented. I will NEVER see anyone else!

Stylist: Sara

I went to see Sara for highlights and a cut. I was extremely happy with the result! She was wonderful, the outcome was EXACTLY what I wanted. I have gone to her many times and she has been consistent in giving me want I wanted every time. She has a great personality and is fun to talk to. It is not easy to find a stylist as great as Sara. I would recommend her to anyone!

Stylist: Sara

Now that I've found Sara, I'll never let anyone else style my hair! She's extremely professional and excellent at what she does. I'd recommend her 100%!!!

Stylist: Alice

I have finally found a salon that knows curly hair and a stylist that knows exactly what to do with mine!! Alice did an amazing job. From start to finish, the whole experience was wonderful. She knows just how to cut my hair (3b), what products to use (I highly recommend the Christo Structure Lotion), and how to style it. Before visiting Christo's I had never actually left a salon with a big smile on my face. In fact, after every previous visit to a salon I would immediately go home, wash my hair again, and style it as it should be styled. But Alice did it perfectly. The place is a little pricey (but typical for higher end NYC salons), but TOTALLY worth it. I love Alice!!

Stylist: Rosa

Rosa was awesome. She is so nice and so knowledgeable. I explained all that was done to me in the past that I hated and how some stylists went nuts cutting my hair off and she gave me the best cut I've ever had. She even taught me how to style it myself and gave me a little bag of samples. I'm definitely going back to her in the future.

Stylist: Sara

I went to Christo to get my hair done the other week and it was cut by SARA. She literally changed my life. I have curly hair and I've never known what to do with it. She taught me how to style my hair and it looks so good. I can't believe that for 26 years I didn't know anything about my own hair!! Now my hair is so manageable and the curls look great. The cut she gave me is cute and modern. I feel like I fit in with the rest of NYC. If you want to have someone explain your hair to you, or if you want a great cut/styling experience, go to SARA!!

Stylist: Christo

I've been looking for a stylist forever, someone who can handle my curly hair, someone who does great color, someone who's willing to listen but will also offer suggestions, etc. A friend of mine recommended Christo at Christo Fifth Avenue. It was such a relief. Not only is he personable and down to earth, he does AMAZING color and cut my curly locks perfectly! Subtle layers that really compliment the way I like to wear my hair which is long. I am so happy to have finally found a terrific stylist. I would recommend Christo to anyone and everyone. Two thumbs way up. Bravo!

Stylist: Christo

Creative artistry is the best way to describe Christo at the Christo Fifth Avenue Hair Salon! Christo is an artistic genius in the way that he will look at your overall 'style', face shape and listen intuitively to your wants and/or concerns in a haircut. The way he cuts, shapes and creates leaves a finished product which is absolutely "off the charts"! I have been to him for 4 years and would not go anywhere else. Christo is definitely at the top of his field and I recommend him to everyone!!

Stylist: Alice

I was recently researching salons in New York City when one of my coworkers suggested I go for a consultation at Christo Fifth Avenue. I booked my appointment with Alice not knowing what to expect; what I received was a pleasant surprise. I'm used to stylists rushing my appointment to service their other clients but my experience with Alice was much different! She was so very diligent and detail-oriented; she checked over the cut several times. She colored my hair and gave me the most natural highlights and lowlights. The next day I had an event to attend and everyone asked if the color was my natural hair color. Not only was the color perfect but the cut was sharp and clean. I've gotten my hair cut and styled into a bob, but when Alice cut it this time the angling was so sharp and dramatic. I can easily roll out of the bed in the morning and just blow dry the style into place. My hair is very low maintenance now and I don't have to worry about spending hours in the morning making it look refined. I'm so happy I took my coworker's advice and am sure I'll be back soon to see Alice!

Stylist: Sara

I was first introduced to Sara at Ouidad and from the first time she cut my hair, I knew I could trust her. I was heartbroken when she left, but thrilled when I learned she was working at Christo 5th Ave. Needless to say, I booked an appointment right away and I finally feel like myself again! I have loved every cut by Sara through to the next cut. It's amazing to find a stylist who listens to what you want, and cuts only what they say they will. Sara really knows curly hair, and makes it look amazing!

Stylist: Sara

My roommate and I used to be Ouidad girls, which is where we originally met Sara. We followed her to her new digs at Christo and as always I couldn't be more thrilled with the haircut I received. Sara repeatedly out-does herself to deliver the best cuts of my life. And through her expertise and the Christo salon, I've discovered a new collection of great styling products!

Stylist: Sara

I recently decided I needed an upgrade and so took the plunge and tried out Christo. SARA was my stylist and she listened to me. I very badly described what I wanted and was still able to get it exactly right! I am a low maintenance girl, and I needed something that had style without needing much styling. I have weird cowlicks that also need a special touch, but it all came out great and now I have a cut that is manageable and pretty. Thanks SARA!

Stylist: Sarah

I am so happy with my hair, again. Sara has turned my unmanageable kinky hair into beautiful curls. My curls have not looked this good since I was a child. I was skeptical, going to a new salon and stylist, but she really took my fried frizzy hair created a stunning look. I actually feel confident wearing my curly hair to work (for the first time ever). Love it!

Stylist: Alice

She was the 1st stylist to do my hair back in 2006, before they decided to provide the customers with a form that included the price of the service for us to sign. I believe she's racist because I'm black and she charged me for the hair products she put in my hair when she shouldn't have because that's not how Christo runs his business. Not only that, but she did not respect my wishes. I told her I wanted my hair to look thick after she flattened it, but she ignored me, so I fluffed it up with my hands only to have her flatten it again. Although, they have a form that includes the price of the service for the customers to sign, I would never consider recommending this racist b@#%! to anyone even if she was the only stylist besides Christo working in the salon.

Stylist: Slava and Alice

Slava saved my dry unruly hair after years of blowing it out and now I have bouncy healthy curls! When I decided to do the big chop, he was on vacation so he sent me to Alice who did the CUTEST hair cut I've ever had. Christo 5th Ave. is a great salon, I swear by the products and Christo is always gracious in greeting people when they come into the salon.

Stylist: Alice

Having Alice cut my hair was worth the 20 years I did not cut my hair! I canot believe that my hair could look as gorgeous and it does, and that someone could actually cut curly hair the right way! Alice is nice, and sweet, and dealt with all my nerves, and gave me the most gorgeous hair cut. I am calling now to go back for my next cut!

Stylist: Slava

If you have curly hair, do yourself a favor and try out Christo's! I have been going to Christo 5th Avenue for over a year now. Never in my life has anyone ever cut my hair as beautifully as Slava. He is a true curl expert! My curls used to get weighed down by the cut and just frizz - or my hair would get so bulky I would just keep it in a bun or pony tail. But for the last year I have had great curls. Slava also colors my hair and the color is the best I have ever had. It brings out my fair skin and blue eyes. I consistently get compliments at work, from relatives, and even when I am on vacation I have had strangers comment on my cut and color. I first went to Christo's just for a consultation. I was a little intimidated to go to a NYC salon on 5th avenue, but everyone is so gracious and welcoming. I remember also how excited Slava was to makeover my look, he really loves what he does. After a few months I got the hang of the Christo hair products Slava showed me how to use. I wash my hair, use leave in conditioner, then mix a little gel and lotion in my hand, use my fingers to comb it through my hair, blow dry and viola - I have a great head of bouncy curls. It sounds corny, but when I look in the mirror I am so pleased with my look I always have to smile and think "thank you" to Slava.

Stylist: Christo

Like so many other people I have gone through my fair share of hair cutting, always looking for the one person that would "get it right". Well, after many years of searching I have finally found that person, Christo. After many botched attempts by other so-called "experts", my curls were a real mess and in much need of serious TLC. After reading the other reviews about Christo, I decided to give it a shot and see if there was anything that he could do for me. My first visit with him was great! He took a good look at what we were working with and gave me a very educational consultation. At the end of that first visit I could have just hugged him! I looked in the mirror and couldn't believe what a fantastic job he did with what he had to work with. Before I left I made sure to schedule my next visit and he gave me a couple of recommendations to make my next visit even more successful than the first. I can't speak well enough about Christo and I highly recommend going to him once because after that first visit you won't want to go anywhere else.

Stylist: Christo

It's taken me forever to find a place in NYC I want to return to, but at last my searching has ended! If you're looking for someone to expertly work with your hair type, personal taste, and styling needs, Christo is your man. He took the time and consideration to give a cut that worked for me and was meticulous about the execution. I have fine hair and too many times stylists didn't take that or my more classic tastes into consideration, razoring wispy layers or giving me a style I didn't ask for - I believe in an attempt to disguise their lack of technical experience. Christo is amazing with the scissors and I got exactly what I requested - a chic, sophisticated cut that totally suits my hair type and style I was going for. He also did my color and it looks rich and shiny and absolutely perfect. A true professional, a great location, and friendly staff, what more could you want?!

Stylist: Christo

This is my first ever review but I have to let you know about Christo. He has been doing my hair for the past few months and has always exceeded my expectations. For the past few years I have been bored with my hair but also cautious to do too much to change it. The problem are: the color wasn't as bold as I wanted plus I didn't know what I wanted. Since Christo has been recommending his own line, I have been able to do so much more with my hair. Christo also colored my hair and it was perfect, again. WOW, when he was finished I looked fabulous. He captured what I have been looking for all these past years!!! I have needed him for a long time. As a true artist, give him the palette and let him do what he does best and you will be surprised.

Stylist: Alica

Alice has been cutting my hair for about a year, and she is wonderful. No matter what she does my hair looks great, and she really seems to enjoy her job. Plus either she's a really great actress, or her complements really are genuine. She never sounds fake like some hairstylists do.

Stylist: Christo

I Love, Love, Love Christo Fifth Avenue salon. This statement should not be taken lightly. Before I always thought that it was impossible to find an acceptable salon in NY, and thus, I resorted to cutting my own hair before letting someone else do it. Christo Fifth Avenue has been the answer to my prayers. Everyone is friendly and willing to assist you the second you walk in the door. I always make my appointments spontaneously, and they are consistently accommodating. Christo himself is my stylist and his precision and eye for detail are highly polished. He is very professional, yet appropriately conversational. An appointment with Christo never fails to brighten my day. I am always incredibly satisfied with the end result, as Christo is able to successfully communicate what should be done, what could be done, and what will be done. Thank you, Christo!

Stylist: Christo

My hair texture is kind of mixed. To have a good hair cut is always my dream. Recently, I had my done in Christo 5th Ave. in NY. This place is awesome. Excellent atmosphere and friendliness as well as personalization of service. Christo was very informative and patient and did exactly what I asked for while maintaining his professional judgment. My hair is very difficult to deal with but he took the extra time and care to cut it properly and made sure he was doing what I wanted. Really friendly and laid-back, and totally professional. I am picky and am soooo pleased. Compared to the rubbish haircuts I have gotten before, this was a great deal. Absolutely recommend them to everyone!

Stylist: Tameeka

I just went and had my hair done yesterday. Im so happy with the end result. I did the biosoftening with the deep treatment and I had a haircut. My hair was very curly and damaged. I feel like a new person. Tameeka is so patient and she listens to you (finally someone who cares about what you want) and she explains everything to you. She spent about 40 min just for the consultation. She showed me exactly how to style my hair and she wrote it down for me in detail. I ended up buying all the products she recommended because I was so happy with the end result. My hair is still curly but not the tight spirals I used to have, its a lighter curl. Plus when you soften up the curl your hair gets that much longer. They tell you if you are having trouble styling your hair you can come back anytime for help. They even sent me an email with links to videos to show you how to style your hair Be prepared however, to spend a lot. For me it was so worth it. I keep asking myself why I waited this long to go to Christo! I will recommend Christo to all my friends.

Stylist: Cypriano

I was first introduced to Cypriano's magic two years ago while accompanying my mother to one of her hair appointments. Cypriano and I immediately hit it off. After seeing what an incredible job he did on my mom's hair, I knew I had to make an appointment. Although haircuts have always been full of angst and nerve racking for me, I felt so secure and confident in Cypriano's hands. Of course, he did not let me down. His ability is incredible and precise. He is so wonderfully knowledgeable and helpful that it makes the haircut that much more enjoyable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a fantastic, flawless haircut!Thank you Cypriano for being the BEST hair stylist I know!

Even when I moved out of New York, I would fly back to NY regularly just to make sure Alice was the only person who touched my hair. She is AMAZING. She's always positive and upbeat and she ACTUALLY LISTENS to what you want. How many of us have had to deal with hairdresseres that do whatever they want and don't care what you have to say about it? That will never happen with Alice. She's the best!

Stylist: Tameeka

Tameeka is fabulous and works wonders with my curly hair. I followed her from her last salon and will follow her to the end of the earth to get my hair done. Her haircuts are fabulous and she works wonders with curls especially if you have several different hair textures. I have recommended Tameeks to several friends with curly hair and they all swear by her. Tameeka really is the best!

Stylist: Slava & Michael

I have very curly and thin hair (3b - I think). Dry it looks volumnous; wet you can see and feel how thin it is. I wore it somewhat long 10 years ago, and I want to return to that style. I spent months growing out my hair (particularly the side bangs), so that a good curly hairstylist could give it a good cut and it could continue to grow into a longer good look. The service @ Christo is great. Nice welcome. Warm environment. No luck for me with Slava. He didn't read my hair at all. I think he went into formula curly haircut number whatever. He recut everything I had just grown out, and left thin length that looked stringy and thin without the volume of the hair he had just cut. He used too much product for my hair - leaving it crunchy and unnatural. It looked terrible when I left, and it has been a cut to manage in the weeks after (you know, sometimes you go home, wash your hair, and it turns out it's a good cut but you just didn't like the styling). Michael did a good job with my color and highlights. It was a little blonder than I would have liked. I did buy some products and have found they can work for me if I don't use as much as Slava. He's a nice guy, but not for my head of hair.

Stylist: Alice

Alice gave me the best haircut I have ever had in my life and I've tried most of the famous salons in NYC. We had a very relaxed and informative discussion before she did anything. She understood about the different types of curls and gently made suggestions about what would look best on me. It was unhurried and there was absolutely no pressure at all to try products or do anything I wasn't totally in favor of. I have received many compliments on my hair since the cut and it is much easier to style. It's never looked this good and I'm so happy with it. Everyone in the salon was cordial, professional, and very attentive. A delightful experience all around.

Stylist: Alice

I had a fabulous cut with Alice. I also had a great cut a couple of months ago from Christo, but since he is tres expensive, and I need to get my hair cut often, I decided to go to one of his stylists. He recommended Alice. From start to finish it's A plus. Lovely service, but more important, absolutely terrific cut. She is first rate. Christo's salon offers free seminars which are helpful in deciding whether to get a cut there. I've been to Ouidad and Bumble and Bumble. Alice at Christo's was so much better.

Stylist: Tameeka

I've tried a lot of salons and wanted to see what Christo was like, so I made an appointment with Tameeka. While she was very nice, I have to say, that it was probably one of the worst cuts I've ever had. I actually asked her to blow it out -- which I never do -- so I could walk down the street. I then had to keep blowing it out until my next haircut, which was with someone else whom I trust. A friend, however, was there with Tameeka, and had a great haircut. I think Tameeka's probably best with Type 4 hair (African American).

This talented stylist did an amazing job on my hair. I read up all the reviews before-hand so I was expecting her to be good and I'm glad to say I wasn't dissapointed. I made the trip to NYC to see family and I just couldn't miss the opportunity to get my hair done at the same time. I have never been able to get defined curls without having to manually twist them into shape, which is a major chore as my hair is so thick. With Curlisto products I don't need to do any of that ever again. The products are amazing, they make the hair feel soft, not at all hard or cakey.. and when you get your hair done there you get a complimentary training session on how to use all the products yourself from start to finish so you know how to get the same effect at home. I also got a few highlights put in by Michael, he did a wonderful job and he is too sweet. He consulted me very well, he listened and made sure he understood exactly what I wanted. I will definately be returning to NY for more of the same.

Stylist: Michael

"Today I went to Michael at Christo and I just had to let everyone know that my experience there was a 10. Not only was the color perfect the service and staff were exceptional. I also received a hair Rehab Treatment that left my hair shiny, beautiful and wanting more. So if your looking for a great colorist and a great atmosphere go to Christo's on 5th.

I have been going to Cypriano at Christo Fifth Avenue salon for 2 1/2 years. My hair has been transformed. I was a long time customer at Devachan and other 'curly' salons, but Cypriano has both the cut and the color exactly right. It's often 10 - 14 weeks between cut/color treatments because I live in Switzerland, but my hair is consistent for the whole time period and is more healthy than it's been in years. Cypriano is an artist.

By referral,I had my color corrected by Michael at Christo's. I had been highlighting my hair for the last two years and it was completely blonde and washed out. Not to mention dry and frizzy. I am getting married in a month and a half so I was a bit nervous about a change. However, after a more than thorough consultation with Michael and after him suggesting a few things we began. Michael gave me a face framing highlight and colored the rest of my hair a deep chocolate brown!! The highlights were a beautiful caramel blond and shimmered though my curls. The end result was unbelievable. I couldnt have been happier and my fiance' loved the change. Michael gave the best color I have ever had. Christo's is the salon for color!!

Stylist: Slavo

After reading all of the glowing reviews about what a life-changing experience Christo's was, I decided to give it a shot while visiting NY. $367 later, I can't say that I was wowed. Slavo definitely spent a lot of time with me, he recommended a treatment for frizz that was $250 which I wasn't comfortable with (the cut alone was $135) so we did a deep conditioning treatment for $150. Now, I know I'm from Atlanta so things are a little different down here - a really expensive cut is maybe $75-80, and that's super pricey. so I was having a little bit of sticker shock...but I was expecting an amazing outcome, so I was okay with it. Well, my hair did look very nice when I left the salon, but I tried to explain to him that I have two kids under the age of 4, and not a lot of time to do my hair. He said my only option was the process he was showing me, which takes about 25 minutes. Anyway, like I said, my hair looked very nice - the curls looked beautiful, and had a lot of movement, but it wasn't earth-shattering. My husband actually asked me when I saw him if I had even had it cut. And when I tried to do the style myself, even with all the products and techniques, my hair basically looked like a slightly upgraded version of what I had started with. My hair is medium curly, and it's not so completely out of control, so I think that maybe if you have more unmanageable hair, you will notice a much more dramatic difference. I had a nice experience, and Slavo was a lot of fun. The salon is beautiful, but VERY pricey, so just be prepared.

Stylist: Slava

My experience with Slava at Christo's salon was truly incredible. I first visited the salon for a "curly hair seminar," and was intrigued by the styling process and products that were described at the event. After reading reviews on this site, I made an appointment with Slava, and was eager to see how he would cut and style my hair. Slava was kind and attentive from the moment we met, and took a great deal of time to study my curls. Slava patiently listened to my curly-hair obstacles, and then offered his advice for a haircut and treatment. I made it clear to Slava that I didn't want to take a lot off the length, and Slava was willingly to listen. He walked me through a cut that included artistic layers and flattering angles, and then proceeded to provide detailed lessons for styling my hair. Slava was never pushy about selling the Curlisto products, however once I saw how shiny and soft my hair was, I willingly purchased some of his recommendations. I was truly amazed by the service at Christo - Slava dedicated nearly an hour and a half to studying, cutting, and styling my hair, without handing me off to assistants. I truly felt that he understood my hair texture, and provided valuable styling tips. I keep getting compliments on his cut, and I will happily return to him in a few months. I wholeheartedly recommend Slava for a wonderful haircut and curly hair experience!

When planning for my wedding, I was apprehensive about how I was going to wear my hair for the big day. I have curly hair, and I wanted to wear my hair curly and natural for the wedding. After trying many different hair stylists in the NY/NJ area, I was unsatisfied. Then I turned to Rosa, a stylist at Christo 5th Ave. for a hair trial. Rosa was a delight to work with. My curls never looked better. My curls looked ultra-defined and we decide upon a rather unique hairstyle for my wedding. What was amazing to me was that my hair stayed the entire evening and I was dancing the whole night. I was most impressed by Rosa’s professionalism, talent and her patience. To this day, everyone has raved and complemented me on my hairstyle. Rosa, I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding hairstyle for my special day.

She consulted with me and not only she pointed out all the problems I have but also came up with the solutions. I walked out with my hair looking phenomenal. She gave me the most amazing cut and did an anti-frizz treatment on my hair. My hair has never felt this soft and frizzles. Now I have all the reasons to come to NYC more frequently. It would be better if I can take Rosa with me to Florida.

I am typical workaholic..always busy and never having time to take care of my curls. But 3 weeks ago I had a meeting with a client of mine, who also had curly hair, and I was jealous! She really looked amazing. I asked her where she gets her hair done and she said Christo’s on 46th and 5th. So I made an appointment with the same stylist she goes to: Slava. I have to say, this guy really knows his stuff..He had different suggestions on what I can do, while I just had a simple request---make me look great! For me this was more of a makeover and so I let him do what ever he wanted as long as I can have beautiful and healthy hair. I spent a good 2 hours at the salon and it was such a great experience. He started with a haircut followed by an unusual color technique which I have never seen before; he put foils into my hair at the same time that he was coloring it. And the result? I have exotic looking chocolate brown hair with what I was told as Apricot highlights which brought out the definition of my curls. He also opened my face frame, which really brings out my eyes. All I can say is that I felt prettier than I have in several years. I guess change is good! Thank you Slava.

I was so excited to finally visit Christo's salon after having to wait 6 weeks just to see Christo himself. After the cut and color he gave me, i truly understand how important it is to have a style that fits my lifestyle. So now, no matter how long the wait is, it is worth it! He even styled my hair after he was done cutting and coloring it, not like how some other stylists who have their assistants finish their clients off. Christo is not only a stylist, but a true educator when it comes to curly hair. After he was done cutting my hair, he gave me a hair "prescription" and the thing i loved most was that i didn't feel any pressure to purchase his entire line of products (even though i purchased almost everything he prescribed!) Thank you, Christo! You changed my life -- my curls have never looked better!

I have kinky curly hair, which I fell in love with about two years ago after growing out a relaxer. I have had difficulty finding a stylist that is willing to work with the hair that I have, enhancing it, instead of trying to change it into something else or taking the easy way out by twisting or braiding. Tameeka works with your hair to make it the best it can be. I thought I was in love before but I've found new appreciation for my hair thanks to Tameeka's expertise. This stylist also scheduled enough time to REALLY educate me on how to properly maintain that salon look. She made product recommendations but didn't force the issue (though I just had to have the products she used to work her magic). She's really phenomenal!

First I would like to thank you Ladies for this great web site, which gives everybody with curly hair support and guides about where to go for our haircut and products. I just had my haircut at Christo Fifth Avenue. From the man, himself, and finally I can understand my curls better. Believe me; I have tried everyone else before, nobody can do such a fantastic job as Christo. I guess I hold it back from Christo because his cuts are $395, but it is worthy every single penny, especially his educational consultation. He got my hands on to try how to style and showed me how many options of style I can get with his cut, and he told me he doesn’t like his clients to feel bored with their hair. Girls, you would not believe the options that you can have. He also mentioned, next time, if I want to try his other designers, it’s $135. And he promises I will be satisfied as well, because they are the stylists who teach with him. Thank you Christo! You changed my life.

Having a haircut has always been a nightmare to me especially after a bad one. A friend of mine called me and suggested I should visit this hair stylist. She calls him “King Christo”. ‘Do I need to dress up to enter his kingdom?’ I joked and laughed. ‘Just go for a consultation. This man takes hair very seriously. He might be able to help you’, she said. After $100 consultation fee, Christo educated me for 15 minutes, and showed me how bad I was treating my hair, that’s why I hate my hair, not because my hair is that bad. (By the way, he is the most well dressed stylist I’ve ever seen in my life.) With his knowledge, I had the confidence in him. So he helped me to schedule an emergency appointment 2 weeks later. Back to his chair, after one and half hours haircut and treatment, I look like a Hollywood star. I wouldn’t even tell how much I ended up spending. The knowledge and transformation of my curls are priceless. You got to see it to believe it. Thank you Christo! You have another fan in your empire!

Ok so yes I admit it! I ruined my hair from all those Japanese hair straitening. But I’ve always hated my curly hair; it’s always been such a pain taking care of it. I’m no expert on all those salons that “specialize” in curly hair so choosing the right place wasn’t easy. One of the places I went to was Christo’s and met with a young good looking guy named Slava. Although he was working on another client when I showed up he stopped by to introduce himself and offered me a glass of wine. The attention was definitely nice. It didn’t take long before he came by and we had a thorough conversation on what products they use at Christo’s and what options I have for fixing my hair. Besides the fact that he was very knowledgeable, I have to say he just made me comfortable. Slava wasn’t pushy and wasn’t trying to convince me of something that I didn’t want or need. I asked for an appointment and came back a few days later. And what can I say; this guy has magic hands or something ?. During the entire process I didn’t have a worry in the world as I could tell he knew what he was doing and my hair is in good hands. He didn’t rush and really took his time to find the best way to undo the mess I made. I generally don’t like to write reviews as there plenty of them as is, but I just wanted to recommend Slava, as he is not only a very knowledgeable and professional stylist, but also gave me the attention that other stylist sometimes don’t want to bother themselves with.

It’s not that I discriminate against female stylists, but you know from all my experiences, I just find that men are better listeners. Sorry ladies! After reading the reviews on about Christo Fifth Avenue, I made an appointment with a stylist named Slava. The salon itself is very nice; brown & gold shades all around, leather couches and all the stylists dressed in black, kinda gave me this relaxing, soothing vibe in the middle of the busiest street in the world. Slava greeted me as soon as I arrived and offered something to drink before my wash. He started asking me if I have a particular look in mind or if I wanted his opinion on what he thinks would look great on me. This was nice for a change, for someone to actually care about my opinion. I wanted something new yet nothing too complicated that I wouldn’t be able to manage on my own, so he gave me several different suggestions and ideas. While I was getting my hair washed he came by several times and asked if I wanted anything or if I am comfortable. While he was cutting my hair we had a pleasant conversation and I didn’t even notice how time flew by and he was finished. Not only did he do a fabulous job, but he also gave me directions on how to keep up my hair so that it doesn’t only look great on the day I got it done, but every day. When I got home, my boyfriend said I look younger, so thank you Slava!

I decided to grow out my relaxer, and after a year and a half of having the new growth blown straight, I decided to cut the relaxed ends off. Tameeka was great, she decided not to cut it all off right away because I was used to having very long hair, and since I was having a baby, she suggested I needed it long enough to put in a ponytail. So she cut most of it back, conditioned my hair and made it so easy for me to deal with my new curls. Another 8 months later, she cut off the rest of the permed ends, and now I'm curly forever and LOVING it. The cut is fantastic, always looks great, is so easy to deal with. I can't believe I waited this long to grow out my relaxer.

Parties, weddings, birthdays, everyone having a good time but for me getting ready for such events, was always unbearable. I was born with very curly hair which was practically impossible to manage and for years I dreaded getting ready in the mornings. My hair was always very frizzy, dry and unmanageable. During humid or rainy days I felt like putting a hat on because nothing helped. I have practically tried everything on the market from gels to special treatments. Now I am in my forties and finally a miracle has arrived. Not too long ago, I walked into Christo’s on 5th Ave. Slava, a bright, young stylist and hair expert patiently listened to all my complaints that I had for years, and offered me a number of chemical and non chemical solutions. We decided to start off with Anti-frizz and follow up with Intensive treatment and then continued with a great cut. Afterwards, he wrote me a personalized “hair prescription” but instead of pressuring me to purchase the entire line, he suggested that I finish some of the products that I have but to use the Deep Therapy Masque every week to maintain healthy curls. I was thrilled to hear that someone has finally created a solution for curly hair that is unmanageable. After so many years I will now finally look forward to getting ready for those special occasions. Thank you, Slava.

Tameeka is a treasure. For years I have struggled with bad haircuts because so many stylists do not know how to cut curly hair. I was truly traumatized until I found Tameeka. She is great with curly hair and knows how to cut it to suit your type of curl and your facial features. I've been going to Tameeka for years and followed her from Ouidad to Christo and if she shoud ever leave, I'll continue to follow her. A note about the salon -- it's FABULOUS -- everyone there is great, friendly and the scalp massage you get when they wash your hair is worth the trip alone.

I've read other rave reviews on this site about Cypriano at Christo Fifth Avenue, and they were all absolutely correct! Christo Fifth Avenue is a great salon and Cypriano is a true master! I had my first haircut and color/highlights here in September 2006. For the first time in my life, my curly hair was in the hands of someone who truly understood how to work with it. Although Cypriano made recommendations as to Curlisto products, there was no pressure to buy anything at all. I did purchase the recommended products, and am very happy I did. It took me a while to figure out exactly how to work with them on my hair, and when I went back for a trim and touch-up in November 2006 I hadn't quite mastered the process. After giving me another expert cut and color application, Cypriano patiently walked my through the steps required to make my hair look its best when I did it at home. It is now January 2007 and I am happy to report that I'm totally comfortable fixing my hair myself. Cypriano's artistry corrected many years of really bad haircuts. My hair looks great!

Since going to Christo I have been transformed!!! Five years ago I had supershort brassy colored hair because no one could help me to style it. Now my once frizzy mess is a head of long, thick and well defined curls. I am amazed. People acutally stop me on the street to compliment my hair! Like most curly haired folk I was traumatized by years of bad hair cuts; so it took me a while to trust the process at Christo. First I learned to style my hair. Wow!! Then Cyriano colored my hair a lush brown with caramel highlights. Finally, I trusted enough to let him use the anti-frizz. I am only sorry I waited so long and now I can't wait to have the bio-softening done. My hair just keeps getting better. I don't just tolerate my curls, but I even feel glamoruous with them. TRULY AMAZING!!!!!

First of all Thank you Cypriano for giving me hope and making me feel wonderful when I left Christo's. He knows so much about curly hair and I feel, like I have a good concept on how to do my hair. Experienced and well worth every dollar spent in Christo's

I went to Alice based on the reviews here. I flew out from Chicago specifically to get my hair cut here. I think Alice is a very nice lady, but the cut I received was the basic run of the mill cut that my local guy can do for me for $40. On the bright side, we had a great day in NY.

Alice did such an incredible job cutting my hair. I never felt rushed or pressured to buy their products. Alice was very, very knowledgable about my hair, and she gave me some great styling tips. My haircut took two and a half hours, and when I left the salon, I felt like the hottest woman alive. It's been a week, and I'm still getting compliments!! I highly recommend her to anyone who wants their hair to look unbelievable!

Highly recommend Cypriano from Christo 5th Ave. The change he made in my hair is subtle but exactly what I wanted. He took the time to show me how to style my hair and gave me alot of information about the products and how to care for my hair. Very nice guy too, excellent!

Alice is such a great stylist. She took time to talk with me my first time there about what I wanted. As she styled my hair she showed me how I could do it myself at home. Of course it never looks as good when I try. I always look forward to my next appt. and I very enthusiastically recommend Alice if you want to look great.

I can honestly say that no man (or woman) will ever touch my curls again! Cypriano has changed my life (for the better!). For years I have had long, unmanageable and frizzy hair that I only wore in a ponytail. After my first visit to Christo's salon and my first meeting with Cypriano, I started to love and embrace my naturally curly hair. After a few visits, Cypriano finally convinced me to go for a short cut. I really had no idea what my hair was capable of! I can't believe I waited so long... Now I have a STYLE! After I lost the ponytail, I also started wearing a little make up and accessorizing my outfits with fun and funky earrings. I actually feel like I got a makeover... When my friends see pictures of the "old me" they can't even believe the transformation. It's a hair miracle! Thank you Cypriano!
