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.
Within the taupe-hued surroundings of Fraiche Salon, comfy black styling chairs stare into wood-rimmed mirrors, in which client's reflections transform during a variety of salon services. Along with haircuts and styles, highlights add streaks of vibrant colour to 'dos, and hair-straightening treatments leave manes stronger, shinier, and with the strength and elasticity to deflect oncoming boomerangs. Additionally, facials and waxing refresh visages and skin, and a kaleidoscope of packages such as Girls? Night Out, Working Girl De-Stress, and Me, Me, Me, Me blend several treatments into a single session.
