We get raves.
This salon is BY FAR the best salon on the Upper East. I’ve been coming to Julio for years and he always does such an amazing job with my hair. He is extremely knowledgeable about about every hair service, color, and product. The entire staff is super professional and so friendly. The salon is always clean, warm and welcoming. I love this place and cannot say enough good things about it! I’ll never go anywhere else!
Jairo cut my hair. He gave me an amazing hair cut! He took his time, discussed exactly what I was looking for. Very happy with the results, I’ll be back!
From the moment I first walked through Dueto’s doors until the moment I left, Dueto not only met my standards but they far surpassed them. Julio did an amazing balayage on me, and all throughout the process he was very attentive and thorough, from checking on the dye in my hair several times to explaining the entire process to me so I knew what was being done to my hair. I also had my hair cut and dried by Jairo, who again seemed to understand what I was going for and what was possible/would look good for my hair. Once I saw the end result I ended up crying tears of joy. I’ve gotten so many compliments on the color of my hair already and it’s easily the best dye job I’ve had in years, possibly ever! I’m so glad I went to Dueto, I highly recommend them!!
NYC has lots of excellent hair salons, but Dueto is at the top for caring, individualized and outstanding hair services. Julio, the owner, is not only a master colorist, but also gives a great haircut. He rescued me from a bad color job and created beautiful highlights and a glowing sheen to my hair. I always receive compliments. The other colorists and hairstylists do beautiful work as well. The salon features wonderful customer service. Want a cappuccino while you are being styled–no problem. How do you like it? The front desk is manned by Alex and she always efficiently calls and confirms upcoming appointments. I don’t normally write reviews, but Dueto delivers above and beyond service and I felt I should share my experience.
I fell in love with my hair again! Dueto has changed my mind on salons. The service was beyond fantastic. I definitely will be back and will be sure to recommend this place to my friends! Thank you so much Dueto! You are amazing!
I absolutely love Dueto. They are the best in the business. The whole staff is lovely, caring and attentive. I have recommended Dueto to all of my friends.
Looking for amazing color? Look no further. Dueto is the salon that will answer your prayers. I’ve been coming to Dueto for my color (blonde) for a few years now, and Loggia is seriously the best colorist/stylist I have ever been to. After searching salon after salon in NYC & stylists never quite “getting it right,” I finally found Dueto – and Loggia – and now will never go anywhere else.
What a gem in Upper East Side!
Natasha is THE BEST stylist to ever touch my curls! I have VERY stubborn natural curls that few hair stylists know what to do with. Natasha took one look at me and knew exactly how to treat my hair. I don’t think I’ll ever go to another stylist again.
I’ve been going to Dueto for 6 years now so this review is LONG overdue. Julio, who is also the owner, is incredible with both color and cut. Like most women, I am very particular about my hair. Julio listens carefully, takes his time and always gives me exactly what I want. He is consistent and excellent. I recently had a blow out by Axel – who was also incredible! I’ve never liked when others have styled or blown out my hair but Axel did it exactly how I liked it! I HIGHLY recommend both Axel and Julio.
Natasha at Dueto salon is amazing. I have curly hair and she does a spectacular job on it.
Loggia saved me! I came to her after getting the worst haircut this city has ever seen. Loggia is a master with scissors. The before and after is incredible. I will never go to another hairdresser.
A great experience at Dueto, just LOVE my new hair color. I finally got the color I have been wanting for years but no other hairdresser understood. Julio was a genius, he completely got it, took time to talk it through and explained how to achieve the look, at the same time as looking after the condition of my hair. If you choose this salon you will not be disappointed.
Loggia is by far one of the best colorists I have ever worked with. She’s fantastic with all colors but she’s particularly great with blondes.
I have nothing but sterling reviews to give Dueto. The salon itself is simply amazing, and all of the people who work there are top-notch professionals in their line of work. I recently got my hair done here and was BLOWN AWAY (no pun intended) with the results! Amazing! I had light brown hair before and wanted to dye my hair (for the first time ever) a sultrier brown/red color. Julio did the coloring himself and mixed up a genius color that is simply ravishing! I got a styled cut and blow dry, which was equally, leaving me with an all around WOW look! I have been completely floored at the feedback I have been receiving… everyone in my life LOVES the hair and I literally cannot stop getting compliments.
