Shuku was still a high schooler when she earned her hair styling licence. Over the following years Shuku accumulated more certifications and diplomas—including one from L’Oréal France—collecting skills in haircutting, hair colouring, permanent makeup, and airbrush makeup that she continually fortifies with continuing-education programs. Shuku’s creativity, artistry, and passion for colour and shape are evidenced not only by her career, but also by the walls of her salon and spa, which showcase her oil paintings and balsamic paintings.
At Azadeh Hair Salon, Azadeh and her team think that a groomed appearance shouldn't telegraph the time and effort you put into it. They accentuate the natural features of their clients with becoming cut, colour, and nail services that are easy to replicate at home. Threading services similarly keep things simple by sweeping away unwanted hair without the use of wax or chemicals.
New York City apartments aren't generally regarded for their spacious square footage. But at Jalouse Hair, the Manhattan-inspired vibe is enhanced by extra elbowroom, comprising two-storeys’ worth of exposed-brick walls, hanging pendant lamps, and chic white furnishings. Boasting both a cutting department and spa area, the full-service salon specializes in men and women’s cuts for all kinds of strand textures and uses Redken Concept products to keep hair healthy and strong. Dermalogica products reign supreme on the spa side of the studio, where aestheticians pamper clients with luxurious facials and mani-pedis and leave skin feeling smooth after waxing services and jazz piano lessons.
Adorned with ornate chandeliers, patterned wallpaper, and long, slender windows, 186 Davenport Salon exudes sophistication. To ensure that clients get exactly what they're looking for, stylists provide consultations before a single strand is snipped. They also include a shampoo, conditioning, and scalp massage with every cut and color treatment. The salon's stock of high-quality products includes L'Oreal Power Dose and CHI Enviro. Staff members are always happy to answer questions and develop a plan for hairdo upkeep between salon visits.
Natural Creations Salon aims to soothe customers' sensibilities with a wide array of haircare services. Clients receive a free consultation to determine the best approach to calming coifs before follicles waltz through the fingers of one of the salon's junior stylists. Steadfast hands enhance the powers of Fleur Fleur, L'Oréal Professionnel, and KMS products in a wash and styling. The additional moisturizing treatment features a 10-minute scalp massage during the shampoo, followed by a generous slathering of Goldwell calming lotion. After the trimming, heads slough off stress and residual brain tangles with a working-in of relieving product from Goldwell's Inner Effect treatment line. Neutral-hued walls, iron-wrought chandeliers, and potted plants enwrap clients in a soothing atmosphere as they gaze at framed full-length mirrors, inspecting finished stylings and practicing slack-jaw faces.
Evoke Salon heaps shaping and styling on local hair strands with a salon environment built on chic surroundings and customer-centric service. Prior to undergoing the scissors for a cut, clients will receive an analysis from an Evoke stylist, with head shape, follicular texture, and the hair's credit score carefully studied to determine the best plan for prettifying your head helmet. With analysis complete, clients will then receive their haircut ($50+ for women, $30+ for men), which includes an aromatherapy treatment, as well as a hyper-moisturizing heat-activated hair mask ($30+) to nourish brittle and breakable locks. Each look is finished with a complete blow-dry to ensure that the haircut catches the eyes of passersby on the street or in the space station.
