At this intimate Midtown studio, you won't find an overstaffed front desk or dozens of shampoo attendants. Instead, owner and stylist Ray gives each client his undivided attention, from the moment they walk in the door. A graduate of Carsten Aveda Institute, Ray boasts a resume that features training at the renowned John Sahag Workshop and Christo Fifth Avenue, where he mastered dry and curly cutting techniques, respectively. Now installed at his own salon nestled inside the Gregory Hotel, he delivers precise, manageable cuts and healthy yet lustrous color.
Ray closely considers the client's hair texture, lifestyle and grooming habits before lifting the shears or brush. He also studies their natural features and skin tone to ensure that the results are gorgeous yet natural looking. The result of his rigorous attention to detail: sun-kissed manes, silky cuts and strong, resilient locks. And a long roster of forever clients.
