Born in Russia and raised in Israel, Beny spent his early adulthood sweeping up discarded hair in a New York salon. This self-taught stylist went on to open two salons, including Hair Bar NYC (formerly Keratin Hair Bar), where he and his staff imbue frazzled tresses with Brazilian keratin treatments, Japanese straightening treatments, and Magic Sleek, which smoothes tendrils using proteins from the Amazon rainforest. He also uses and equips clients with products by Obliphica, Wella, Moroccanoil, and Inova. When stylists aren't subduing frizz, they sculpt coiffures with haircuts and color treatments but never by infusing them with play-doh.
Miguel has worked in Manhattan for over 15 years and specializes in high end coloring, styling, blow dries, human hair extensions (one of the first salons in NYC to use Hairdreams ) and Japanese straightening. Now offering the Keratin Smoothing Treatment (formaldahyde free).
The frizz-flattening Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy, which was designed by hair mastermind Peter Coppola, infuses hair with natural keratin, straightening strands and adding a silky, lustrous sheen to each individual filament. The therapy also cuts down on styling time, making hair easy to manage and making it require less product and Gorilla Glue to achieve its ideal look. Once flat-ironed into the hair, the keratin infusion lasts from three to five months depending on hair type and proper care, allowing people to frolic in secure, straight-stranded delight for long lengths of time.
MessLook Hair Salon & Beauty Spa cofounder Charles Lam has racked up more than two decades of hair experience in three locales: Hong Kong, Taiwan, and his current base, the United States. In a 1,000-square-foot salon, he and his team recreate the international styles Lam assimilated on his travels, transforming heads with cosmopolitan cuts, highlights, and specialty treatments such as Japanese straightening. The studio?s services extend beyond hair, though: Lam?s cofounder, Josephine Xu, is an aesthetician and makeup artist. She and her staff can rejuvenate faces with treatments powered by vitamin C, caviar, or lasers. They also can buff fine lines and age spots from skin with microdermabrasion, whose ultrafine crystals would otherwise have to adorn the rings of newlywed mayflies.
Lali Lali Salon customers book appointments online to nab an afternoon, evening, or Saturday visit to revivify strands at their convenience. As they arrive, sunlight careens into the long, spacious salon, which is punctuated with colossal, playful, overgrown bouquets. The lush bursts of chlorophyll spray up from the floor, fan out from the walls, and hang from the ceilings, contrasting with modern black furniture cushioned with flower smells. Massive windowpanes paint crosshatched silhouettes on a vintage green chaise lounge and mock bearskin rug. Fittingly for such a carefully designed space, Lali Lali doubles as a gallery, with a focus on photography that captures New York's bustling fashion scene.
