Best blonde I've ever been – A little over a year ago, I was really unhappy with my hair color and since I was new to NYC at the time, I did not have a stylist and didn't quite know how to go about finding one. So instead of trying, I was lured by a little box and did the color myself. Well, it was awful and very stupid of me to do this only weeks before my wedding. In desperate need of a fix, I searched for a stylist on Citysearch (all of my friends were new to NYC as well so it's not like they had any recommendations) and ... read more

An urban sanctuary with suprimo hair guru Krister – Krister is an exceptionally gifted hair stylist & colorist. He posses a natural talent to cut color and style your hair into a look that is both modern and classic - and always flattering. I have been a loyal client for around six years. Even my recent move across the country has not wavered my devotion to his superior quaffing abilities. I still fly in to enjoy both Krister's gorgeous personality and his ability to make me look and feel beautifully put together. His most r... read more

My favorite stylist EVER!!! – Krister is not only a fantastic stylist/colorist, but also an amazing person. My sister in law recommended Krister a few years ago and his work is truly wonderful. He really listens to you and understands what makes a woman feel beautiful. He is full of brilliant suggestions but there is never any pressure..I always walk out of his salon feeling amazing! We recently returned to NYC from living in CT and I can honestly say that Krister is one of the things I missed most about NYC! The salon is wa... read more

I give Krister and his beautiful salon highest marks ever. – Krister is the secret behind this brown-haired girl?s true blond locks! And it?s none of that chicken-fat color you get at most salons and/or with do-it-yourself kits. People usually don?t believe me when I say I?m not blond by nature. Some, mostly men, have even expressed disappointment over this fact. They (again, mostly men) soon get over it ? it still looks great, so who cares if it?s man made? Master colorist in all honor (and he really is but he?s too shy to ... read more

Fantastic hair cut and great colouring and styling – I have to say my hair is difficult to take care, because I am asian. But Krister gave me the best hair cut I ever had. And I had hair cuts in London, Amsterdam, Kuala Lumpur, you name it. He really has it in his fingers. The colour chosen for me was perfect. It looked modern and stylish. I never had so much compliments from friends before about my hair, until this Swedish guy did my hair. He changed my image at a moment I really needed it. My haircut is very easy to mainta... read more

persona grata – I turned in my plush leather chair and gazed out the window. The empire state building shone in golden light. Music filled the open space as did the aromatic scent of Italian cooking. "More wine?" asked an accented voice. Where am I? A gallery? A spa? No, neither, and yet a little bit of both. I was in Persona salon featuring Krister Atle who truly is an artist. Conveniently located by beautiful Bryant park, the salon is also neighbors with the Rustico cooking school. The peaceful atmosphere allows you to rel... read more

Hair genius – After nine years in NYC I still have not found a stylist that I can call my own, but after just one visit, I feel Krister is the one I have been looking for! I have not worn my hair down since a horrible cut in January, now I can't stop wearing it down! Krister is fabulous, he is the type of stylist you feel comfortable with right away, someone who takes one look at you and knows what will make you look your best. I highly recommend Krister to anyone; not only because of his creative genius, but he is very pers... read more
