"I have been getting my hair designed by Michelle at THE aRT OF HAIR for 15 years now. Michelle and her team of experts are amazing. I would gladly recommend to all who are looking for royal treatment."

- Erica Pelton, client since 1997

"I love, love, love the Schwarzkopf Osis+ Dust It Mattifying Powder. I have baby fine hair and after sprinkling a tiny (and I mean tiny) bit of powder to the roots, it gives my hair just the right lift. It almost makes each strand feel thicker. Additionally, if your hair tends to be on the oily side, this powder gives it a nice matte finish."

– Jennifer Pignataro, client since 2008



"THE aRT OF HAIR is the perfect name for this salon! Michelle is a true artist and I can honestly say that I've never had a cut that I didn't absolutely love. AND, six weeks later, my cut still has shape and style! On my 60th birthday when I decided (not without trepidation) to "go gray" Michelle backed me all the way. She made the growing out process so effortless that I've never looked back. The atmosphere at the salon is peaceful and free of gossip which I love. I give it two thumbs up, five stars, whatever...you get it, the highest rating."

- Sandy Wells, client since 2003

"First of all, I would like to say that THE aRT OF HAIR is an AWESOME salon. It truly is an Artist salon. Anyone that has never had their hair cut dry does not know what they are missing. Thank you for a wonderful experience, when I got home my husband was waiting at the door for me. His words were “this is the best hair cut you have ever had.” Everyday I get compliments on my hair and how I look younger with this cut.

The Deva products are awesome. The Cleanser ( Deva Curl -NO POO,Love the name), Deva Curl One Condition and Deva Curl Frizz-Free Volumizing Foam are products that I highly recommend. My hair has a lot of wave and the Deva products bring out all the true body and curl that your hair has. No perms for this girl.
My hair is very dry from the highlights and color that I had done at another salon. Using Deva Curl condition is really helping the hydration of my hair.
I can’t wait for my next visit!"

- Shirley Rothenbusch, client since 2011


"I have been a client at THE aRT OF HAIR for over three years now, and I wouldn't trust my hair in the hands of anyone else. This also goes for the people I care about and recommend to this salon. Whether it’s Michelle or any of the wonderful people on her staff, it seems as if you have any general idea of what kind of hairstyle you'd like, they make it happen and it turns out better than you ever expected. Also, their recommendations on styling products have helped me tremendously. Michelle turned me onto to "Dust It" which has easily become my favorite hair product and has allowed me to do my hair in a way that looks effortless each day." 

- Abir Hossain, client since 2007

"I am a new client of Michelle and her staff. When I first walked into THE aRT OF HAIR, my hair was dry and unhealthy.  Michelle and her staff introduced me to Schwarzkopf products and Deva Curl. I am a professional, and I must look well dressed everyday. With Michelle's expertise in cutting hair, and her collaboration with her staff on color, I not only look great, but I get compliments on my hair often.  I am so grateful that I found THE aRT OF HAIR!"

– Irene Van Riper, client since 2011






Thank you for a wonderful experience and fabulous hair!

"I would like to thank the professional staff at THE aRT OF HAIR for the warm, inviting experience. I would also like to thank Master Hair Artist Michelle for the creative hair design that has people stopping me to give compliments!! I look forward to my next visit. Many thanks!"

- Christine Muller, client since 2004

Michelle is FABULOUS!

"I have had my hair cut at salons on Madison Avenue in NYC, as well as at Bumble and Bumble, and Michelle is just as good if not better than they are, which is why she is my stylist even though I live in NYC. She always listens closely to what her client wants and is versatile and creative enough to meet anyone's needs. She is up-to-date on all of the latest techniques and takes the time to provide information about how to care for your style at home, but never pushes products on you. In addition to being a great stylist, she is also an excellent colorist. I highly recommend THE aRT OF HAIR salon to anyone who is looking for a great haircut/style/color in a relaxed and professional atmosphere."

- Pam Kavenough, client since 2003

"My experience at THE aRT OF HAIR was AMAZING!!!!! I was able to make an appointment right away at a time that was best for me! Michelle cut my hair using the greatest technique- dry cutting. I was educated on why she was cutting it the way she was and the best way to style it. I was then handed off to have my hair washed with the most amazing DEVA products and styled! I was never left unattended. I felt like I was at home!!! I love it there!"

– Alexis Aponte, client since 2011


Can't say enough positive things about this salon!

"I have been going to TaOH for about 8 years now and I cannot say enough good things about this salon. I have very thick and feisty hair, but this is no challenge for Michelle & her team. Not only have I received amazing cuts/colors/styling, but Michelle & her team also take the time to educate you about what they are doing so that you can replicate the look at home. I have moved near & far, but no matter where I move, I still come back to TaOH. Michelle truly enjoys her work and that is evident by her enthusiasm during your time with her. I recommend all my friends & family to TaOH because Michelle really lowered the frustration I had with my curly hair. Another bonus- no drama at this salon, when you go there its all about hair! Can't say enough positive things about this salon!"

- Bridget Edsail, client since 2004

FANTASTIC!!

"I was recommended to THE aRT OF HAIR about 6 years ago by a few people and I am so glad that I started going here. The girls at the salon are fantastic and I now recommend them to everyone when I receive compliments on my hair. This is the place to go if you want NYC style with a friendly, personal touch!!"

- Colleen Meyers, client since 2006

"As a person with curly, dry & challenging hair...I recommend the DevaCurl product line. Two of my favorite Deva products are - Set It Free & Set Up and Above. These products moisturize my hair, control the frizzes and keep my hair in place. I also recommend Smart Solutions Hair Product, which is a hair serum for straight and curly hair. This product is great...it smoothes and adds shine to my hair. I use it on wet and dry hair.
I have always been pleased with THE aRT OF HAIR professional staff. TaOH Team does a great job coloring and styling my hair. Michelle has been cutting my hair for years...not an easy feat! What I like best about Michelle is - I just tell her I want my hair to do this or not to do this and she always knows exactly what to do to make that change happen".

– Ellen Santorelli, client since 2003



The Only Place I Trust with My Hair

"I walked into Michelle's salon back in 2003 and have NEVER used another since. She is a fabulous hair artist, selects the best staff I've ever encountered, and continuously expands her knowledge by studying with the best in hair. Her mastery of color and cutting is unparalleled in the local market. Customers new and familiar are always greeted warmly, listened to carefully, and treated in a friendly way. I never hesitate to recommend THE aRT OF HAIR to anyone!"

- Mary Zak, client since 2003

"My daughter and I have been going to THE aRT OF HAIR for years and have always been very happy with our haircuts, color, products and the service and attention we receive. I have never been steered wrong with product recommendations by Michelle or her staff. Over the years, I have used Enjoy Pomade, a number of Schwarzkopf shampoos and conditioners and Deva No-Poo. I have happily referred many friends to THE aRT OF HAIR and will continue to do so! Also, LOVE the new space!"

- Lisa and Norah Silverstone, client since 2005

"I have been a pleased customer of THE aRT OF HAIR since its inception, many years ago. The staff is always accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable about current styles, trends, and products. The stylists focus on clients as individuals, offering professional suggestions.  The salon's environment is clean, cheerful, and relaxing. 
Need a place to be pampered? THE aRT OF HAIR is for you!"

– Irene Pons, client since 2005







THE aRT OF HAIR aFFAIR

"This salon has a friendly cutting crew. I always have a blast with the girls. Owner, Michelle taught me how to renew my damaged hair. And my hair has never been more beautiful or healthier. I would recommend this salon to everyone!"

- Tara Brower, client since 2010

"I've been a client of Michelle's for over 7 years and have yet to find a better place for a haircut. Michelle is amazing at what she does, her staff is legit and the salon is clean, cool and comfortable.
My only recommendation for Michelle is to open up a place in NYC so that I can stop driving 90 minutes for a haircut."

- Tim Murphy, client since 2003

"I have been using the Devacurl product line for about 15 months now after converting to the curly girl method and have never been happier with my hair.  I have very thick, coarse hair and these products are just perfect.  My hair dries curly and has never felt or looked better and healthier.  I love getting compliments on how beautiful my hair looks.  Michelle and the staff at THE aRT OF HAIR have made going to the salon to get my hair done such a pleasurable experience.  Past trips to get my hair done always left me frustrated and unhappy as I never before found someone who enjoyed styling my hair.  What a wonderful feeling it is to know for certain I will leave the salon a "happy, curly girl."

– Karen Fasulo, client since 2010




The BEST Place to Get Your Hair Done

"Michelle has been cutting & coloring my hair for over five years. I like to change styles and each time she comes up with a flattering and cutting edge style that I love. I drive over an hour to get to THE aRT OF HAIR and I would even drive farther for her. People stop me and tell me they love my hair and ask me where I have it cut. This is an amazing place and Michelle is a truly gifted artist"

- Molly Robbins, client since 2005

"I have been a client of Michelle for several years and can honestly say that I've always been happy with the results. I like to change my hairstyle frequently and can always count on Michelle to work her magic and create a style that is very manageable and cutting edge. She is truly an artist in every sense of the word. The shop is clean, nicely decorated and the staff is courteous. If you're looking for the best of the best, THE aRT OF HAIR is #1."

- Raelene Masi, client 7 years







"Michelle has been our hairstylist, to my son and myself, for about 13yrs. She is FABULOUS in EVERYWAY. I would confidently recommend ANYONE to her!"

- Michelle Mulligan, client since 1999

I just wanted to thank the staff at THE aRT OF HAIR, especially the stylist who cut and colored my hair for she did a wonderful job. The products she used made my hair feel so thick and healthy and my hair never shined so much. The staff at TaOH are so friendly and make you feel special. Her blow drying techniques, along with using Schwarzkopf products, Body Me and Dust It, made my thin hair look very full and beautiful. I would recommend THE aRT OF HAIR to anyone at anytime!!! Thanks so much for a wonderful job and wonderful products!!! I will definitely be back and continue to come back year after year."


- Cindi Eagle, client since 2011




"I was referred by a friend to check out THE aRT OF HAIR in 2005. I have been going there ever since and have had nothing but the best service & experiences. Michelle Iorio is way ahead of the game when it comes to hair and definitely goes above & beyond with service & style. Each visit Michelle gives her professional opinion and goes into depth about your hair type and hair knowledge so you are left leaving with a great cut and color that suits your facial structure & personality. I have to carry her card because I get nothing but raved reviews of my hair when I go out. Due to Michelle's extensive knowledge on hair products, she knows exactly what will work and won't work for your hair. This saves me money in the end from trying out new hair products for aftercare. I purchase a new product almost every time I visit. Hair is touchy for most so it's wonderful THE aRT OF HAIR provides great service you can TRUST!"

- Nicolette Lindell, client since 2005
