In a word, Anthony's hair salon is SUPERB.
There are a lot of kind words to describe this wonderful salon. Anthony is the hands on owner. An experienced, talented individual who is at the top of his profession. I use him for my haircuts and coloring. I've never looked better.
This is a five star salon.
I was recommended by a friend to get a haircut by Anthony. I got a great haircut! He is very professional and extremely knowledgeable in his field. I've been going for the last six months and find his work to be exceptional and consistent. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to improve their appearance.
I fly from Charleston, SC to get my haircuts from Anthony when on business trips. He really knows what he is doing. I have never been satisfied with any other hairstylist and have been to many. Anthony takes the time to understand your hair, shape of head/face and overall preferences, before making recommendations and proceeding. The result is a stellar haircut, great conversation and a departure with newfound confidence. Glad I found this diamond in the rough!
I was recommended by a friend to go to Anthony for hair services. Not only is he an amazing person, the gray reduction and the great haircut I received make me feel great! Above all, my girlfriend loves my new look! I highly recommend Anthony! He is a professional who truly knows his business!
I have been going to Anthony for more than 2 years now... He is great, he is the only one that I trust. A real professional. I highly recommend him, he really knows what he is doing he has tons of experience. He listens to what you have to say. He makes you feel great and look great!!!
I am not that happy with the haircut. It was fast and not precise. A 70 dollar haicut should be extremly precise and the stylist must take the time to make sure everthing is good. I gave him specific instructions on what to do and it was not done. Now I have to fix to make precise. I hate barbers. They all seem to suck no matter where I go. I do not recommend and will not go back.
Now I see what all of the fabulous reviews are about.
I've never heard as many compliments about my hair when returning to the office then home.
I'm considering having a hair color treatment the next time back.
Anthony explained how a gradual grey reduction would be done.
Everything is done is a clean, private room with someone who obviously knows what he's doing.
When you go to an expert with his knowledge and experience it shows!!
Anthony Hair Salon is THE premier men's hair salon in the city.
The attention to detail and courteous service is far and above its competition.
Worth the price and more. Time after time you get the same excellent service.
The service is by appointment and is usually booked in advance.
A popular place, you always get the same great cut and service.
Anthony is one of the more interesting people you'll meet. A fascinating and talented gentleman.
I've been a customer for years and will continue to be.
I read the reviews on Anthony and decided to book an appointment. I could not be more pleased.
The rare combination of an artist and genuinely nice man.
I just started going to Anthony Men's Hair Salon and couldn't be more pleased.
I was attracted by his ratings on CitySearch.
His reviews ( or shall I say 'RAVES' ) were right on.
He is the best in his trade as far as I'm concerned. Posted in his shop are numerous articles about him.
His reviews highlight his magnificent career.
Nino has been tending to my hair for a number of years. He is a master at matching the right hair style to maximize your overall appearance. He brings artistry and creativity to his craftt. Nino is a treasured find.
Anthony is a gentleman and a master at his craft. Highly recommended.
Anthony has been my barber exclusively for many years. I have never gone anywhere else since my first meeting with him. Anthony is an artist in his profession, and in his poetry. A wonderful person.
In his previous lifetime, Anthony must have been one of the Renaissance's greatest artists. He made me rediscover how handsome I am. I had forgotten what it was like to have a great haircut!
Pros: Great Service
I have been looking for a Hair Stylist who listens and explains what is possible or not possible for the type of hair I have (unruly). Anthony did a great job! Finally, I found a Professional who cares enough. That is an exception! His passion and ability are second to none. He takes haircutting to the next level.
Pros: Service is Excellent
Recently I got a haircut by Anthony. I was fortunate he had an opening the very next day. I had to travel into the city but it was well worth it!
I explained that I wasn't sure what to do with my hair. After taking time to examine the pattern of growth and texture of my hair Anthony asked me an unusual question: ""Do you want your hair to 'whisper'?, 'talk'? or 'scream' ? !""
Honestly at that point I did not know if I was in front of a philosopher, a magician or a master hair stylist. He proved to be what I had read about him.
A true master of his craft!!

Pros: The best there is.
Anthony is not only a highly skilled craftsperson who truly enjoys his work, but someone who is a talented poet, a concerned world citizen, and a man who will make your periodic visit a truly enjoyable part of your day.
By far, Anthony is the most talented barber I have ever met . He always makes me look good.
Pros: Nice shop, convenient location, Great barber;great attitude.
Cons: No negatives
Anthony is very professional, he does outstanding work, and he greets each client with a warm welcome. I not only look great when I leave, but I feel great too!
Pros: Outstanding service
A haircut by Anthony himself is always, without a doubt a great experience! A greeting smile, a handshake, and an interesting question. ""Do you have a good relationship with your hair?"" At that point, he was intently listening at what I had to say about my hair, problems, wishes and anxieties. Anthony checked my facial features, hair length and pattern of growth. Then he proceeded on explaining to me all my options. Did I want a business cut, a fashionable look, an everyday haircut, or something that could easily be interchangeable? The result was a great haircut! I have been back 3 more times and it is uplifting and reassuring to see a stylist take clean and disinfected combs out of the sterilizer each time he starts a client. Lucky I found him!
Pros: Clean, private space
I found Anthony in 1980, shortly after I'd moved to New York. There was a transit strike at the time, and I had to walk home several miles every day. One evening, I set as a goal to look in the window of every barber shop I passed, to find the very best in Manhattan. The best turned out to be Anthony. I could see that his haircuts were absolutely superior; I could not have guessed, as I looked through his window, that he was a published poet, a student of the arts, and one of the most thoroughly warm and decent people I would ever meet.\r
After all these years, Anthony knows my hair far better than I ever will, and I completely trust his aesthetic judgment. What sets his hairstyles apart is that you leave with a completely natural appearance -- you look your best without looking like someone styled your hair. This naturalness, I think, is one reason why performing artists often become his loyal clients (as you'll see in other reviews).\r
The nice thing about trusting your hair stylist's judgment so completely is that time in the chair can then be spent discussing so many other things. And Anthony's world is infinitely rich. He's taught me everything I know about opera, about Sicily, about the best way to learn French, about how to refinance my mortgage, about the Divine Comedy, about how to replace my roof, and most importantly of all, about family and friendship.
Pros: The kind of hairstylist who inspires lifelong loyalty
Cons: Anthony's shop no longer has a window
Thank you City Search! \r
Anthony Hair salon was a real 'find'. \r
My hair never looked better. \r
Fascinating and extremely talented...Anthony takes his profession to the highest level.\r
I couldn't be more pleased.
Pros: Highly skilled professional
Anthony is great resource. I feel very lucky to have discovered him.\r
There are three things that make Anthony so special. First: he listens, he understands what I want out of a simple haircut or styling overhaul. Second: he has great ideas for making my hair look good; he makes great creative suggestions. Third: he has the technical skill to make it happen flawlessly. Anthony is a real find. He is a real artist. I can?t recommend him more highly.\r
Pros: Great work, great service, in a relaxed professional atmosphere
There's not a lot more to add than what all the others have already said . I would combine all the previous comments about this master of his craft and put my name on at the top of the list. Never before have I experienced the attention to detail that he brings to the chair. I especially like the privacy and the more I get to know him, the conversation. \r
Pros: Attention to detail
Cons: He doesnt live next door to me
I went to get a hair cut by Anthony on Park Avenue. What an artist! My hair is very bushy and unruly, and it has been very difficult to find a professional to make my hair manageable. I must admit that when I sat on his chair, I was a little puzzled to see him looking intently at my hair, my face, and then with a smile asked me, ""Tell me everything you know about your hair. Do you have a good relationship with your hair? And if not, why not?"" What followed was a very interesting and educational conversation about my hair, with the result of great service. It is a pleasure to watch Anthony work! He makes it look so easy, including cutting hair with two pairs of shears in one hand! He is truly a top notch profesional in his field!
Pros: This man has an intellect, an artistry, and finely honed skills, all of which go into the work.
Cons: He doesn't make House Calls
Anthony always makes me look good, that's it really. Shapes my hair to my face. People always say, boy your hair looks good! He is kind of an artist in that way. Plus I like the privacy, the conversation. I am about a 13 year customer.
Pros: Everything really.
Anthony what can I say he is by far the best men?s hair stylist by far. It is a comfortable and private place and Anthony is just an all around great person. It is a pleasure getting your hair cut. He asks the right questions about who you are and then fits the haircut to your personal style.
Pros: Very private
I am a TV and movie actor and since I have gone to Anthony?s, I would never think of going anywhere else for my hair grooming needs. In my line of work, I?ve often come to Anthony with extraordinary demands and he has always come up with a solution. He has given me the look of a contemporary lawyer for ?The Practice? and a 1930?s gangster for ?Oh Brother Where Art Thou?. And for those with more cut-and-dried needs, so to speak, I can attest to his masterful work at ?Gray Reduction? and his proficient skill in hair design. Besides all that, he?s a great guy! \r
Michael B. (Jimmy Berluti/Baby Face Nelson) etc.
Pros: Stimulating, intelligent conversation
Cons: Closed Saturday and Sunday
I've been going to Anthony now for 5 years and never have I been more satisfied. To say he's a perfectionist is an understatement. I started with one of his specialties, haircutting, then went on to the gray reduction service, I feel and look younger as a result...magnifico!\r
I wouldnt have anyone else touch my head again.\r
Super nice guy besides. Clean, private atmosphere.
Pros: Convenient, Clean, Private atmosphere
I am a New York actor. My hair ends up being one of the tools of my trade. The style and the cut of it\r
have to be altered from time to time to meet the needs of the job (of the current character I am playing).\r
I wouldn't trust this vital tool to just anyone. Anthony is someone who has been on a film set. He understands the close scrutiny of the camera. He takes the time required to achieve optimal results. Sometimes, he'll cut less than I have asked for, to show me the possibilities of different variations. Then he'll proceed until the picture is perfect. I don't have the option of a less than perfect haircut. My hair has to be CAMERA-READY. So, I go with Anthony. What more can I tell you?
Pros: Intelligent conversation thrown in as a bonus
Cons: couldn't find any
Anthony has perfected a technique of hair coloring that is virtually undetectable.\r
I used to have my wife do it for me (and she's rather good at it, since she does\r
her own hair coloring), but people could always tell, if they looked close enough,\r
that my dark locks came out of a bottle. Now, Anthony does it... and NO ONE knows. \r
I've forgotten myself what my old grey head looks like. Now it's speckled with the\r
occasional grey hair in a natural looking mane of masculine color that is matched \r
to my skin tone and eye color. The man is an artist!
Pros: Convenient location; happy atmosphere
Cons: none evident
As far as i'm concerned there's Anthony, then there's everyone else. He's an artist when it comes to all aspects of men's hair. Pleasant atmosphere, privacy, clean, everything you could want. He might be the best kept secret in the city for men's hair... He's the best recommendation I've ever gotten... I feel obligated to pass it on. Anthony is ""One"" of a kind.
Pros: No pressure, honest
Cons: He doesnt have a twin
Anthony is amazing, he can do it all. A true master at his craft. \r
I use him for haircuts and his 'gray reduction' technique...a subtle, gradual, gray reducing hair coloring method that is so natural looking. \r
To top it off, he is one of the nicest people I know, intellectual, personable and very interesting. He's an opera buff and a well known Sicilian poet. He does lectures and readings at events around the city.\r
I recommend him highly.
Pros: Thumbs way UP!
Cons: really none
He cuts my hair, and I like it. I really like it. What more is there to say. He knows what he's doing.
Pros: always punctual
Cons: no beer served
I found this place by accident. But it's no accident that I remain a steady customer. My regular barber was on vacation and I was in need of a trim. Found this place in the phone book, and consider it a real FIND! This man (Anthony) is an artist. He doesn't just cut hair. He SCULPTS it. I, personally, don't have easy hair to cut. The texture and thickness varies from sides to top to back. Anthony blends my dificult locks into a homogeneous cut that makes me look my best. It doesn't hurt that he's a fascinating guy to talk to while he performs his magic. It's always a friendly, pleaseant, and gratifying experience.
Pros: One-stop shop; they do it all. Cut, color, styling. 1st Rate.
I was very happy with my cut. I was looking for a place in Midtown and came across this place. I was thrilled they were able to fit me in. I would def go back!
Pros: clean, courteous
