Specialty Services

All stylists at ARROJO NYC offer Specialty Services in hair cutting or hair coloring. Many stylists have additional specialities, like extensions, permanent textures, smoothing services, or styling classic, occasion or high fashion looks.

Scissor Cutting:

All ARROJO hair cutters must prove themselves to be masters of classic scissor cutting techniques. If you want a quintessential style, see a specialist who knows and loves the classic geometric shapes of hairdressing.

Razor Cutting:

Modern creative razor cutting has been pioneered for twenty years by Nick Arrojo; this contemporary cutting technique is the signature of the brand. Great for wash and wear styles, creating texture and taper, and perfectly imperfect lived-in looks.

Hair Painting:

Our original technique, hair painting uses similar principles to balayage to create custom-made colors, putting brightness and pop in the perfect position –– without lines of demarcation. We offer a range of hair painting services, from low-maintenance to high fashion.

American Wave:

Our revolutionary texturizing service for modern beachy waves, shapely curl patterns, bombshell body and bounce. Free from Ammonia and Thio, American Wave uses ionic waving lotions and modern tools and techniques to leave the hair soft and flouncy, not hard and crispy. Try this specialty service and discover the new wave of curl.


Craving longer, fuller, thicker hair? We have several specialists in Hair Talk Tape-in extensions, which are 100% real human hair. From bombshell length to mermaid reds, color melts to bangs, virtually any desired look is achievable.

Smoothing Treatments:

Want to smooth-out thick, unruly, coarse, or unmanageable hair textures? Our texture specialists use relaxers, mane tamers, and kerasilk to creatively customize the smoothing treatment to each client’s hair type and desired result.

We believe specialty stylists create a better salon experience for you.

Being a specialist gives the stylist more time to hone their expertise and stay up to date with the latest trends.

It also means more efficient and flexible bookings as some cut and color, and pro blow-dry combination services take 4-5 hours. To get those three services from one stylist, you would need the stylist’s book to be open for at least half a day. With specialists, several stylists share the load, giving the best chance of getting the appointment at the most convenient time for you.
