Finding a good salon is quite a feat in itself. When it comes to beauty and cosmetic services, only a few
venues strike a deep, emotional chord. In most aspects, finding a good salon is similar to dating. You just
cannot trust everyone with your precious heart and locks. So you must be prepared to play the field,
weigh your choices, come together a few times and then whether your partner or the hairdresser is
worth settling upon.
And while it sure is an exhausting process, once you’ve found the one, there’s no looking back. But with
so many celebrity-endorsed salons in NYC, it becomes quite a task to figure out the ones which are
worth shelling out the extortionate prices. I’ve seen people travelling all the way from Washington DC to New York to visit their favorite salons. Believe me, when I say that it takes years to find that one favourite one. Ugh.
To spare you the trouble, we’ve rounded up some of the city’s finest hair salons, covering both the easy-
on the pocket salons along with a few high-end names. Whether it’s a simple trim or a complete style
overhaul, these salons are completely worthy of your precious, nurtured locks.
