While it’s primarily known as a gorgeously outfitted hair salon where owner and a legion of equally talented stylists—turn out perfectly-layered, easy-to-wear cuts, this massive space also has an in-house space devoted to massages, nail treatments and waxing.
Naples native Nuzio Sav built up a loyal clientele as a senior stylist at Oscar Bandi, earning a spot in “Best of the Best” Beauty Directory for four consecutive years in the process. After working a brief stint at Sh Dorran, he opens his first salon on the bottom two floors of an Upper East Side townhouse. The ground level houses a petite reception area, where the full range of Kérastase’s newly released Couture styling products ($35–$36) are sold (the high-end hair-care brand’s items are exclusively used in the salon). Climb a flight of stairs to the understated, modern ten-chair space, where Saviano and his assistant, Sarah Rona, offer cuts (women $100–$250, men $75–$175), braiding ($50, with shampoo and blow-dry $125), updos ($150–$500), Cezanne formaldehyde-free smoothing treatments ($250) and Kérastase deep-conditioning masques ($50). Fellow Oscar Blandi alum and colorist Stephanie Brown executes single-process color ($125–$150), highlights ($275–$400) and clear gloss treatments ($65). Makeup applications ($150–$250) and lessons ($150/hr) are also available by appointment with artists Tanya Rae () and Albee Franson ( ).
While it’s primarily known as a gorgeously outfitted hair salon where owner and a legion of equally talented stylists—turn out perfectly-layered, easy-to-wear cuts, this massive, 4,000-square-foot second-floor space also has an in-house space devoted to massages, nail treatments and waxing. Even though this spot is a bit out of the way, it’s worth the trip for a decent cut and even more respectable prices. Both the powder-blue space and the trim itself. The service includes a thorough scrub at the washing station and a simple blow dry, that will showcase your newly snipped style perfectly. At this Soho nail studio created by veteran beauty editor Eleanor Langston, the experience is, well, polished. You’ll be giving swoon-worthy butterfly kisses in no time thanks to this squeaky-clean Midtown East lash joint. All fashion lovers know the urge to change up your look never goes away, and since the fastest way to do that is amping up your hair color. As in most salons, the service is a two-step process: first bleach, then tone. For a virgin brunet to go full-on pink, the staff recommends stripping the natural color with lightener and then adding dye. The salon can also apply any nail art onto a basic manicure.
If there’s one thing New York women always find time for during their workweek and weekend hustle (apart from brunch—obviously) it’s pampering. You can get your mane perfectly coiffed at the best blow dry bars and your arches “on fleek” at brow bars in the city, so it’s no surprise that you can add volume to your lashes by getting eyelash extensions too. There are several studios and spas in Gotham where you can get long, thick and beautiful lashes without breaking the bank. Here are the spots we recommend for adding some more fringe for your lids. Edgy meets glam—Urban Outfitters and Hairroin Salon are a match made in heaven. Head to the newly opened Herald Square location offering a full range of services from trendy styling.
