I've been a client of Tony's since the late 70's on the SU Campus! He's the best for coloring & cutting my (frizzy, curly, unruly Middle Eastern) hair! And his number is sooo easy to remember: 474-TONY! Love ya,
Fantastic Hair Cut in Syracuse! New York, LA, Dublin, London - they all have great hair salons, and you know what... so does Syracuse! Thanks Tony. Great Hair cut. Just perfect. Exactly what i wanted. I'm ready for the cameras! Cheers! Dez Ryan - Host of The Raw Sessions Ireland (www.theraesessions.ie)
Only Tony knew exactly how I liked my hair. I have since left Syracuse and it took a few years to find someone with that same talent. He became a good friend which we remain today. A wonderful family that I always enjoyed. sue s
TONY HAS BEEN DOING MY HAIR SINCE 1996 AND I LOVE HIM AS MY HAIR DRESSER.
I HAD COME TO THE SYRACUSE AREA TO ATTEND UPSTATE MEDICAL UNIVERSITY AND I WAS RECOMMENDED TO HIM VIA A PREVIOUS CLIENT. I WAS HAPPY FROM MY FIRST APPOINTMENT AND HAVE BEEN GOING TO HIM EVER SINCE.
TONY DOES GREAT WORK AND I DO NOT TRUST ANY ONE ELSE DOING MY HAIR. ALSO, TONY IS FUN TO TALK WITH AND WE HAVE LOTS OF LAUGHS AS WELL.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TONY AS YOUR HAIRDRESSER!
Would highly recommend Tony to anyone – I have been to a few places in Syracuse but hadn't found a hair dresser that suited my style. I googled to find a hair dresser in the area and found that Tony was highly recommended. I gave him a try.
I am so glad I did. It has been about a month since my haircut and I am convinced that it is the best cut I have ever had. I hardly gave him any direction (cut a bob) and he did a fantastic job! I love my hair and get compliments from people at work -- even those I barely know.
You will not regret going to Tony! Besides being a great hair dresser, he is also a great guy and fun to talk to.
ex: great person as well as great hair dresser – I called Tony after having to pay big backs to a well known hair dresser and my hair looked so bad that even my husband said so...
Well, Tony fixed it, gave some useful ideas for hair coloring and 2 guys that they work there are very friendly!
I'm so happy! I finaly found someone I can trust with my hair!
Thank you Tony!
I love Tony – I have always been very loyal to my hair stylists. I am 32 years old and have only had 3 people cut/style my hair. Even when they would do a poor job I would stay with them. Crazy I know!! A couple of years ago I went to have my hair highlighted (something I'd been doing for a while) and my hair was fried. I don't know what went wrong. But I looked like a color chart for blonde shades. I was completely devastated and embarrassed. Thank gosh one of my friends new Tony.
I called and explained my problem and Tony gave me an immediate appointment. When he saw me, he gasped and asked what I was attempting to go for. I told him that I had wanted basic blonde highlights. He explained to me that my hair had been extremely damaged and that it would take a while to get it healthy again. But in the mean time he would fix the color. It took us a few sessions and a mixture of colors for my hair to go from 6 shades of blonde/white to the golden color it is now. Tony is the most amazing person to ever touch hair.
I will never go anywhere else. Not only does my hair and color always look amazing, I also get fantastic conversation. I see Tony every 4 months and he remembers my daughters name and what we talked about the previous time. He is very personal and makes you feel welcome.
As for the other negative comments, you must have been in a different salon or else you are truly a vain person. There are 2 barbers that share a space with Tony and they are the kindest men and very funny. Tony is the only hair stylist so you don't feel cramped at all. As for the decor... are you looking for a great hair stylist or an attractive room? I wouldn't care if Tony did hair out of his garage, I 'd still go to him.
The Best Haircut I've Ever Had – The first thing I said when I sat down in Tony's chair was, "By the way, I'm a little nervous." He sat and talked with me for a good 10 minutes and boosted my confidence and calmed my nerves with a detailed plan of what he thought would be most flattering. I brought in 3 pictures but also asked him what his opinion was and the end product was essentially the perfect cut for my facial structure and personality. The whole time we talked and laughed and gossiped and learned things about each other. It was like I was talking to a dear friend who I've known for years and years. When I walked down the stairs and out of the salon some guy looked me up and down and whispered "hey" under his breath which is odd for Syracuse and I'm pretty sure it was because my new haircut made me feel so beautiful and I was probably smiling like a bafoon. I would recommend Tony Christopher Hair Design to anybody who is looking for a special, reliable place to go to for long-term service. I don't think I will ever go anywhere else, now!
Absolutly excellent! Creative mind? You'll love Tony! – Tony has cut my hair twice and both times not only did I receive excellent service and advise, but outside of the salon, I was showered with compliments. I was happy to give Ton'ys name and the address of his salon. He is an artist who takes all aspects of an individual's 'composition', so to speak, into account when he styles their hair. Skin tone, face shape, eyes, and personality all play a role. He was very accommodating and listened to what I requested very carefully. He gave me well thought out suggestions, but was completely open to the most important aspect of my cut; what I truly wanted and felt comfortable with. I have had nothing but good experience with Tony and I would highly recommend him to people who are creative, maybe a little daring, and want a hair cut that is designed specifically for them.
On another note, the two negative ratings are not only unfair but also slightly inaccurate. The floor is not linoleum and furthermore none of the individuals who do indeed rent chairs from Tony, would be cutting hair right next to Tony's customers. They are given their own space and even if they were close, Tony is very conscious of the atmosphere and it is not at all as invasive as has been said. I almost wonder if this person got the wrong salon. And if she did in fact receive a bad cut, it was at that point her responsibility, and honestly, consideration, to go back to Tony and ask for something new or a refund. Not only would she have been accommodated but it would have helped the salon, if in fact she's judging the right one. And you want a cold, impersonal NYC-like atmosphere? Go home hunny, this is Syracuse. And we are proud of our small city, especially its personal and very professional atmosphere.
Thanks Tony, you have shown me nothing but compassion, humor and class!

Never been happier with cuts and colors!! – I stumbled upon Tony's salon by accident and it was the best accident I have ever had. I have had my hair cut and colored by Tony 4 times now and everytime I come out happier then the time before. He even took the time to have a 30 minute meeting with me when I thought I wanted to become a brunette! We decided on a beautiful shade of red, which because of his expertise and skill turned out better then I could have imagined. Tony always listens to what I want to do and then gives me an honest opinion as to if it will work with my hair or not, and if it won't he always has a plethora of suggestions that would work. The barber's that work there as well are also a great audience to test out your new look and have some pretty great stories too! Everytime I go to Tony's I always come out looking and feeling better then I did when I went in which I think is the most important thing to consider when choosing a salon. Choose Tony's, you won't regret it.
