My stylist is personable, talented and technically accurate. My colorist is a genius and exhibits both talent and great technique. They are a joy to work with every six weeks.

I have found my experiences with support staff uncomfortable. This only happens in situations where the colorist or the stylist is unable to wash and finish my hair. Staff does not listen to or absorb what the client is saying. I had to repeat myself until my request was acknowledged. Finishing staff appeared annoyed when I requested that they amend part of the washing service. My requirements/needs as a client did not appear to be a priority.

In short, I got attitude. It was not until a senior stylist acknowledged my presence that I was treated with interest and respect. Unfortunately, this is not the first time, but the third time. I have been a customer of the salon for fifteen years and this has occurred in the past three to four years. It was the repeated nature of the poor experiences that led me to submit this lackluster review.

My experience with Dung at the Ruiz Salon was absolutely great. Professional, considerate, and over all enjoyable. From the moment I walked in and was greeted, to when I was walking out the door, I felt comfortable and well attended. I had been stuck with a same hair style and my current barber, who I do adore, hadn't given me many options for an updated style. I was recommended the Ruiz Salon by a friend and I'm very happy with the results. Many compliments, and I genuinely feel much better about my hair! Dung made sure to provide a lot of advice and tips for future cuts/styling. We had great conversation and he made sure to address every question or concern I had about my hair. Thanks so much to everyone for their great customer service. 10/10 would recommend!

My hair color is fantastic, but the colorist skills on blow drying needs work. My hair leaving the salon was not done to my liking.

I came in for my first cut 8 weeks ago and was very happy. So, I came back 8 weeks later for a cut. We discussed 1/2 inch or 1 inch being cut. I ended up with face framing layers being cut much shorter and it wasn't discussed with me until AFTER it was done. If I had been asked, I would not have agreed to the face framing layers, as it is not terribly flattering on me.

Bre is always amazing in her talents as a colorist and my last visit is no exception.

Sharon is the only person who I will let cut my hair and I recommend both her and Bre whenever I am asked 'who does your hair'?

Paris does such an amazing job with my highlights! Also, just love this salon. I feel like I'm at the spa. :)

Service with a smile. Everything we do at our locations is based off of old-fashioned customer service, and a firm belief that every customer should be viewed as a friend and family member. Great Staff. We are proud to be a family that just-so happens to work together. We are proud to foster an environment where fathers and sons still work together to perform an honest day's work. Our most important asset? You. We feel telling a customer what they don't need is just as important as telling them what they do. Building a relationship and an atmosphere where you know and trust your mechanic is such a simple principle, but seems to have been lost somewhere along the way. An honest mechanic is the best business builder. Every day we fight the stigma that mechanics are "out to get you" and every day we are successful proves that a notion as simple as taking care of your employees and customers can make a business a success. We look forward to becoming a neighborhood "institution" and will continue in Tarrytown Texaco's tradition of sponsoring the local schools and athletic teams, and assisting in everything from 4th of July parades, to helping church members out that are having financial difficulties. My wife, Mary, and 2 year old Logan, and 7 month old Ty, look forward to being recognized faces in the neighborhood and a friend anyone in the community can call on for help. -Ross Newberry, Owner
