Steven Sobel Salon provides all the necessities for an image-altering salon experience, which is why it was voted one of Elle magazine’s Top 100 Salons in the United States. A women’s haircut and style ($55+) provides an opportunity to slice and dice bangs and work the rest of a coiffure into preened perfection. Men ($35+) and kids ($20) can also have a session in the spinny chairs for a cut by one of Sobel’s scissor ninjas. Other styling options, such as updos ($50+), are available for defying gravity during upside-down proms. The salon’s coloring catalog offers single-process sessions ($60+), partial highlights ($90+), gloss ($35), and conditioning treatments ($20) to cover all quick changes. Anti-curl treatments ($95+) act as a peace accord between stubbornly twisty locks and sensible scalps, effectively ending years of trade embargos.
