The Salon

Rosario Acquista Salon

The environment of the Rosario Acquista Salon seamlessly matches the warmth, understated sense of personal style, and attention to detail embodied by its owner. From the moment you sit in one of the top-of-the-line Japanese hydraulic shampoo chairs—probably the most comfortable shampooing experience you will ever have—to when you change back into civilian clothing behind the dressing rooms’ mohair wool curtains backed with cotton cashmere, you feel pampered. Small enough to be intimate without ever feeling crowded, the Rosario Acquista Salon is a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of urban life.


About The Owner


When it comes to technical know-how, imagination, and understanding trends, Rosario Acquista is, simply put, one of the best. He spent his early years as a stylist for such artistically demanding fashion designers as Geoffrey Beene, Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent, Missoni, and Christian Dior. Today he is renowned for the skills he honed at La Coupe, Vidal Sassoon, Carita (in Paris) and, most recently, Kim Lepine, where he was artistic director.  “Mostly,” he says,  ”I get my ideas by listening to my clients and then thinking about life. A spiky bathing cap in a department store window display, the long hair of a woman in a painting by Gauguin, my seventeen-year-old daughter’s perfect highlights—all natural, of course! It’s like any creative endeavor. I am always looking at the world around me and translating what I see into the way I think about hair.”
