They accept walk in and I got a nice haircut from Sheryl (?). Sorry I am super bad with names! I wish I could remember her name correctly as she was super nice and even gave me some tips on how to dye my hair if I decided to do it myself again.

Extremely clean, well organized and relaxing environment set by the aroma of Aveda in the air. The staff is very courteous, knowledgeable and professional. The front desk staff were very helpful. They made my checkout experience quick and comfortable without me feeling pressured to purchase unwanted products but did offer me products that was actually very useful which shows that they pay attention to detail and are experienced in what they do.

Claudia is great! She gets my color right each time. She does not make it too dark to cover my gray hair, but makes it look natural. The staff are all very friendly and professional!

I had made a decision to cut what was left of my dreadlocks, off my head. It was not that I didn’t love them anymore but I actually had outgrown them and needed change. And because I was on 86 street in NYC ,I remember seeing an J. Scott Aveda near the corner of third Avenue. I stepped inside , the receptionist was kind. I noticed that a beautiful black woman who was taking care of a beautiful white woman’s hair is staring at me, the receptionist asked me to wait and the black woman came over and introduced herself as Demi. Demi asked questions pertaining to my hair and the appointment was made. I returned for my appointment and every single person in the salon seem to know that I was there to see Demi ,they were smiling they were cordial ,one guy came over t to say “hello you’re chopping your hair how long have you had those locks“, and then Deming went to work and did exactly what we had talked about the week before. I am so pleased that someone understood me without me having to beg for what I was paying for.I suggest that you ask for Demi if you have any intentions to go there. If you don’t get Demi I’m sure that someone else there can treat you the way I was treated which was really good.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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%.

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!

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!

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!

I just got my haircut by David and he was excellent. The haircut was on point and he understood exactly what I wanted. I just became a regular.
I walked in and got great service, Skye was very professional, managed to remove excess glue I had from extensions I had removed a few days ago at another place, she gave me a good wash and an amazing botanical treatment and finished it with a perfect hair dry, will go back when in New York again!!
