Despite it’s New York City style sophistication and elegance, Salon Ruggeri offers their customers an aussie style of individualized hospitality and care. The salon, founded by Gregorio Ruggeri and carefully designed by his partner, interior designer Craig Longhurst is an escape from the bustling streets of New York as they cater to each customer throughout their entire hair treatment in their intimate salon. The salon is housed in a beautifully decorated space off of 28th street. The aesthetic is carefully curated by Longhurst and creates a comfortable, chic, and lively environment for their customers. Ruggeri specializes in blowouts, natural blonde highlights, cuts and elegant updos.
We caught up with Salon Ruggeri’s Chris Millete to learn a bit more about the critically acclaimed salon.
