Premier Salon and Spa's stylists have studied hair and beauty in New York City, London, and Paris, but clients don't just come for the team's worldly talents—they also come for the view. Perched 11 stories high inside Macy's Department Store, the space features private styling rooms that offer exclusive peeks at the cityscape and the bald spots of passing pedestrians.
Wielding products from Aveda, Pureology, and Goldwell, the stylists fashion bold cuts and brilliant highlights—services that earned the salon multiple awards from Citysearch. Meanwhile, soothing ambient music fills private suites during massages, waxing services, and customized Dermalogica facials.
