NK Salon by Nerik
From Julia Roberts’ fiery red curls to Lady Gaga’s fearless coifs, Nerik has seen and styled it all. The master stylist runs the Upper East Side salon, NK Salon by Nerik, where he welcomes even the least famous of men and women to sink into his or his talented staff’s styling chairs. The NK crew uses the Balayage hair-coloring technique, featured in Vogue, along with L’Oréal products to streak monotone ‘dos with natural-looking highlights. They weave Great Length hair extensions into short styles, or chop off overgrown strands to help clients see their reflection for the very first time. Bottles of Kerastase and Aveda products grace the sleek, crisp-white space, flanked by wall-scaling mirrors and fresh flowers.
Aside from styling hair, Nerik’s crew also dresses up appendages with spa manicures and pedicures, during which they are careful to never cut the cuticle—a common error in many nail salons. Meanwhile, skin specialists apply chocolate wax as they strip away hair from any part of the body.
