After years in the industry, celebrity stylist and wedding expert Stacey Lyn Weinstein opened her bright, airy salon in Chelsea. Her hobnobbing scissors have shorn flattering clips on celebrities as diverse as Robert Downey Jr., Ann Curry, and Donald Trump and have sharpened the casts of All My Children and Saturday Night Live. Though she's a go-to expert among society brides and wedding-magazine editors, Stacey describes her look as "a sexy, modern approach … with a hint of romance and classic, clean looks." In short, a style that plays well outside of weddings. When not styling celebs or dispensing advice in magazines or on ET, she happily surveys the floor of her lovely salon on the back of a white, human-hair-covered stallion. Once Upon a Bride described the space as having a "glamorous yet organic loungelike feel," characterized by chemical-free, "meticulously crafted Brazilian walnut wood" and "a custom gold chandelier made in Europe." Hair services reflect this chic, eco-friendly style: staffers use Goldwell hair coloring and natural Phyto products to style locks. On staff are experts in color, cuts, and texture, many of whom have worked with models and actors on photo shoots for GQ , Nylon, and Muppets News Flash.

From a stone mosaic that lined the floors of a 5th-century synagogue to the final rhyme spit out by a Jewish hip-hop artist, the span of the Jewish Museum's collections is as diverse as it is expansive.
