About Us

"No Hay Pelo Malo."............"There Is No Such Thing As Bad Hair."

This is an adage Santa Cruz holds close to her heart. A native New Yorker, Santa Cruz began her career with Glemby International before opening her first Manhattan salon in 1982. She expanded in 1993, moving to her current location at 66 Madison Avenue. In 1996, Santa opened a second Manhattan location at 11 Madison Avenue.

In addition to her work as Creative Director of the two Santa Cruz Salons, Santa has worked on hair and make-up for numerous print photo shoots, videos and fashion shows. She has worked extensively with Perma of Paris and Revlon as an educator. A certified hair colorist, Santa is also certified by Revlon in using Arosci Relaxers.

Ms. Cruz occupies a special place in the New York Salon scene because of her specialty in the unique care and maintenance needs of an important and under-served market: women with curly hair. She and her staff take particular care to educate clients about the right products to use for optimum maintenance of their curly hair.

We have different stylists with expertise in curly, straight, and afro-textured hair. We have certified colorists & experts with hair weaves, locks, and wigs. So just ask who would be best with your hair type. Final prices depend on length, thickness and texture of hair and stylist used. Just because you don't see a service listed doesn't mean we don't do it - so only ask!
