About Christo Fifth Avenue

Curly Hair Salon NYC

Starting at the Roots Stylish Beginnings

Like quality hair care, our success story starts at the roots. In 1981 founder Christo Curlisto started his hairstyling career as an apprentice at his family’s salon in Greece – a land full of luscious curls and opportunity. He mastered his craft and eventually took his practice around the world to serve a widely diverse clientele. The anointed “King of Curls”, he was passionate about educating stylists and clients everywhere about proper curly hair care. Finally, in 2002, Christo Fifth Avenue was born. In the heart of NYC, Christo and his team have been adding glam to curly heads of all kinds – from his loyal regulars to A-list celebrities.

Our Philosophy Defining Every Curl

The passion at Christo Fifth Avenue salon stems from our dedication to treating, nourishing, and styling curly hair the right way.

That’s why not only do we offer top-quality products and cuts, but also provide education about curly hair care to stylists and clients alike.

We believe that your curls can be sleek, bouncy, and vibrant – not to be dulled by techniques that dry out your locks, turn up the frizz, or take the life out of your hair.

Our Process Sleek Meets Technique

The Christo method aims to define every curl and leave you feeling refreshed and confident. We start with the most nourishing products to keep your hair as healthy as possible. We then cut and style your curls to the look you want using our exclusive Christo Diametrix technique. The result is hair that can be sculpted and shaped to maximize your hair’s unique texture and personality.

Our Products Curlisto for Curly Hair Care

Our signature Curlisto line of hair products offers formulas for all types of curls. Each one is specially designed to keep hair looking and feeling strong, radiant, and healthy. From brushes to conditioners to fortifying formulas, we offer everything you need for a vibrant head of hair. Choose from our wide selection of both in-salon and in-home treatments.




Notables, Awards, and Philanthropy Turning Heads Everywhere

  • The New York Times

In addition to his contributions to hair care, Christo has organized numerous charity events for HIV/AIDS and cancer research. He’s just as passionate about giving back to the community as he is about serving for his clients.

“When you give, you get much more in return.” – Christo Curlisto

Praise from Our NYC Clients

“Christo gave me the best haircut of my life– but the visit was so much more than a great hair cut… I left that salon feeling so confident and my hair hadn’t looked so good in over 10 years. They also gave me tons of Christo samples and not once did he push any products on me. Needless to say, if you can’t guess from this review, I’ll never use anything but Christo products again.” – Rebecca R.
“Christo gave me a trendy and beautiful cut. I also had the new in-house CBD treatment, which nourishes the scalp and strengthens hair and leaves your hair feeling healthy and refreshed. My hair is super healthy and has never looked better! Christo took the time to go over the treatment with me and explained all of the benefits. I’m super happy with how my curls look and am looking forward to my next trip to Curlisto!” – Alexa N.
