As always, a great experience at Scott J. My stylist Cece is the best and Charles, the assistant who washed my hair was great as well! Thank you!! -kathrynw
Talented stylists, friendly staff and overall value -- from the tea to the head and hand massage to relaxing but energetic atmosphere it's a gem salon. Plus -- you get a great cut and the prices are reasonable. -angelas
GREAT service. Online booking is amazing. And my hair looks good. -lizal

I enjoy Scott J. I feel like there is a bit of an inconsistency with service there sometimes but overall a solid spot for haircut. I don’t color my hair so I can’t speak to that quality.

Sophisticated Salon, excellent service, very courteous. Steve does a great job with color, highlights and cut
21:56 03 Oct 21
It was a delightful find and the hairdresser was fantastic. I will go to her and only her again next time and if she does not work there, i will not tend my hair here.

Ladies have you ever had such a beautiful haircut, highlights and style that you couldn’t stop looking at your hair in the mirror??? Well that’s what I’ve been doing today!! I’ve been going to Jessina for years and the best way to describe her work is like the hair whisperer! Got complements from strangers on my way to the train. Thank you so much as always Jessina!

Jada is the best

Can't rave enough about the Scott J experience. I have been going there for 5 years now and consider it a treat every time I go. From the amazing shampoo and head massage and professional service, it is worth every penny. I have been seeing David the whole time I've been going there. He is FANTASTIC. Not only am I satisfied every time, but his coloring and balayage ability is amazing. He knows what will look good/won't look good and I completely trust him to work his magic. He is so talented, leaving me coming away so excited to show my new hair off every time.

Been getting my hair done here for 11 years, and service is always excellent!!!

Just a fantastic experience! I’ve been going to Dawn for years for cut and color and she is the absolute best! So personable and professional just a love! Her technique for color, cut and blow dry is beyond compare. Since the reopening, I feel so safe and the salon is impeccable! If you are looking for the best, give Dawn a call!
16:11 28 Nov 20
The best place in NYC,I always make an appointment with David he’s very professional,friendly I love his job.

Right from booking my appointment 2 weeks ago, Scott J Aveda clarified any COVID related concerns and put my mind at ease straight away.The salon is spotless and you can see the stylists sanitise their stations after every client.My hairdresser today was Kevin and I would 100% recommend him to anyone: he’s very kind, very patient, and obviously knows his way around hair.Thank you to all the staff at UES Scott J Aveda for the impeccable service. I’ll be back soon!

I went into Scott J Aveda Salon on Friday after a DIY hair color disaster using Overtone. I was pleased with how completely professional the business was with cleanliness standards in light of COVID-19. The did a temperature scan, provided masks to every client, gave disposable single use coverings instead of traditional multi use aprons, and used disposable towels in place of the regular towels. Everyone was polite, professional, and held sanitary measures to a high standard without sacrificing their customer service or quality.As for my personal hair experience, I was told by several other salons that bleaching would be required to remove the pink dye from my previously platinum hair. However, Dawn worked her magic and managed to completely get rid of all of the splotchy pink without bleach, all the while leaving my hair soft and feeling quite healthy and undamaged. She was very friendly and knowledgeable, and I had a wonderful experience with her. I knew immediately I was in great hands and I highly recommend her as a stylist.

Steve, as always, did a fabulous job of cutting my hair. The new CovID protocols were great and at no time did I feel in anyway compromised.
20:31 04 May 20
Awesome place! They even give a back massage and make up touch-up during your session.
02:43 13 Mar 20
Lovely experience. I’ve received haircuts from Skye and Daniela on separate occasions (I booked based on availability for that day) and they were both excellent.The atmosphere is very relaxing - they offer water or tea (in real mugs!), have an awesome playlist, and there is a natural vibe, both from the smells of the Aveda products and the earthy tones of the decor. The staff is professional, sweet, and efficient. When I walk in I feel like I’ve entered a little haven of calm in the midst of the city.Skye gave me a beautiful gloss and haircut and Daniela was impressively quick while not at all feeling rushed. I also bought a few products recommended based on my particular hair needs which I look forward to trying. My hair feels healthy and full. Will go back again!

I suffered a traumatic hair experience elsewhere and had half of my hair burnt off due to an inexperienced colorist. I was referred by a friend to your salon and told to ask for David. Needless to say I now call him the hair whisperer. His patience and skill are unlike any stylist I have ever encountered. Between his warm, easygoing personality and overwhelming amount of talent I would never go to anyone else ever again. Not only has he repaired the damage he's done an amazing job at it. I wholeheartedly recommend him 100%.

Tara Turner is the best... and so down to earth.

I stopped in for hair products to enhance volume. As I walked in to this busy salon, a sales person raced to the counter to help me. This young man (Stephen) with great looking hair (lots of volume!) asked me how he could help and guided me through the Pure Abundance line. I bought two products: one I knew and liked (a spray named Style-Prep) and one Stephen recommended (a powder named Hair Potion). The powdered product intrigued me, especially after Stephen demonstrated how to reconstitute and use it. I'm here to give a rave review to Pure Abundance products, which I love (Wow, what a little powder can do to increase volume!) and to Stephen, who was absolutely delightful. Stephen was not pushy, never overbearing, but kind, enthusiastic, and helpful. Aveda Salon, keep this guy and promote him! He's a gem.

I went to Shelly at Scott J Aveda salon for 7 years while I was living in NYC. She did a fantastic job cutting my hair during that time and always made sure to work with me to make sure I liked the cut she provided me. She also did a great job coloring my hair for the first time! The employees at Scott J salon are very considerate and make sure your experience there is great no matter what. I highly recommend if you’re looking for a new place to get your hair done on the UES!
02:08 04 Oct 19
Because they are!

Love getting my hair done here, wouldn’t do it anywhere else! The whole experience is amazing.

I had a great short haircut with Amy, I love how she listens carefully and cut the hair gradually and cautiously to ensure client's satisfaction instead of rushing to chop it off and moving to the next client. She has a friendly and warm personality that doesn't stop her from excelling at what she does, no superficial unnecessary personal questions or bashing your ex hairstylist which is rare in this industry...Im really happy with my haircut and intend to have her as my go to stylist..thank you Amy!

NYKIA is an AMAZING stylist! I had a wonderful experience at Scott J. Aveda salon on the Upper East Side. The receptionist was friendly and welcoming just like the rest of the staff. In addition, Nykia gave me the perfect blowout and silky straight hairstyle afterwards.Nykia's kindness, intelligence, professionalism, and knowledge are remarkable attributes. She goes above and beyond to treat her clients exceptionally well. She really listens and takes the time to understand your needs before styling your hair. The best part is that my hair came out beautifully because of her patience, care, and skillfulness.Overall, my appointment with Nykia was EXCELLENT!!! I would highly recommend her to ANYONE who is in the NYC area and looking to receive a gorgeous blowout. Thank you, Nykia and the rest of the Aveda team! Keep up the outstanding work!
14:39 25 Jun 19
Amy is the best! She's super friendly, really listens to what you're asking for, and also offers honest opinions about what would look best. I also look forward to my appointments with her! She's taken my hair from blonde to brunette and back to blonde highlights again, and I've always been happy with her work. Go see her - you won't be disappointed!

TARA TURNER is THE BEST! She worked all sorts of magic on my over-processed, over-bleached hair. My hair was lifeless and many shades of ugly (yellow, green, purple). She removed all the unwanted color without any discomfort! (Ie burning scalp). She also cut my shoulder length hair very short to perfection. She listened carefully to my wants and offered professional advice at the same time. She is so talented, I HIGHLY recommend her! I love my hair & have been receiving compliments all day. I will be going back to her and you should too!

Really great service- I called for a last minute appointment. We made the appointment and then she called back to say she noticed I’d previously gone to the west side location and she’d called them to secure an appointment for me there if I preferred that location. (I’d called them already and they’d had none but apprarently there was a last minute cancelation). Really went above and beyond to make things easier for me! Love this brand!

The salon is great and the workers are amaing.

I cannot recommend David a the UES salon highly enough. He never fails to deliver when highlighting / cutting my hair. He's truly excellent and thoroughly skilled. As long as he's here, I'll never go anywhere else.
17:55 25 Jun 18
Shelly is the most talented stylist I've ever used... she always makes me look terrific after a haircut. She's the best.
12:25 25 Jun 18
Jaylee is the best. ALWAYS gives the best cut. Staff is very accommodating too.

Jailee is amazing and is my only stylist; I have had her for 3 years now, and even when I move to neighborhood that is farther away I will continue to travel to her.She gives me versions of the pictures I show her during consultations that work with my hair texture and features. I am always happy with my cut and color when applicable.She also upsells, but not in a pressure-like way for me to buy products.Lastly, the reviews complain about price, but I find the prices cheaper for other salons that position themselves as similar to Aveda; each of their services are slightly lower than average. I deem Aveda to be a mid to high level luxury salon. In addition, each stylist commands a different price based on experience, so if you are willing to go with someone greener and take the risk with your hair, you can effectively lower the price.I am passionate about this place, and saw some negative reviews, so I wrote a lengthy one to combat those. :)Give this place a try!

Jailee is fantastic - she always understands what I am looking for, works quickly and has the best energy! My fine, straight, blah hair is transformed into the perfect blonde pixie. The shampoo/hand massage/shoulder rub is so relaxing. Scott J (and Jailee) are my favorite salon in NYC.

Steve is an amazing and professional hairdresser and colorist who consistently delivers high quality services. Steve has been providing me top notch hair cuts and color for more than 3 years. He is always on time and the rest of the staff are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend him and the UES Scott J Salon.

Got exactly what I asked for. Dominique did a great job. Definitely a place to go if you care about how you look.A little on the pricey side but then again in the age of Supercuts anything more than $20 can seem expensive.
