Best Hair Salon – Krister has been doing my hair for years, and I would never dream of going anywhere else. He truly wants to understand a client's personal aesthetic and lifestyle so that the cut and color are absolutely right for the individual. He has cut my hair in styles ranging from the geometrically precise bob to longer lengths without bangs, and I have been absolutely thrilled with every cut, every time. Krister also does gorgeous color, particularly shades of blond that resemble spun gold. I have sent my mother, si... read more

Best stylist in NYC – I can't help but gush about Krister whenever anyone asks who cuts my hair, which happens quite often. Not only because he is a gifted stylist, but also a warm and congenial person. He has really excellent instincts and brings out the best in my hair. I trust him implicitly and would recommend him highly to anyone. He works with you to find a style that suits you and your daily routine. I don't know how he does it--but my hair looks great all the time and I never have to do anything to it! I am so glad I... read more

Find a new you, or perfect the you that you already love – I have been going to Krister, the owner of Persona, for years. I am a very picky person, but with him I feel completely at ease. I know that all the wonderful ideas that he has always come from his understanding of who I am and what I want to be perceived as. It's me walking in, and it's me times a hundred walking out of there. His skill is unquestionable and his imagination is what gives me such a kick each time. He knows how to make you look edgy in a way that look... read more

Best haircut and highlights in New York, London, anyplace!!! – There are not enough good things that I can say about Persona and the owner, Krister. He is amazing and does a great job on my cut and color (I am blonde and everywhere I go people ask who does my color, it looks wonderful). I also look forward to going to the salon because it is low key and a wonderful experience, I have been to the best in New York and London and Krister / Persona tops them all, hands down!!!
