DS Studio’s talented cadre of beautifiers gussies up guests with a deft touch born of years of experience. Hair artists draw expertise from their star-studded portfolios, ranging from work with Julia Roberts at the 2003 Oscars to The Real Housewives of New York City to New York Fashion Week, to stylishly prep coiffures with blowouts, straightening shocks into sleek strands for big nights on the town or macaroni-and-glue portrait sittings. With the first option, a shampoo cleanses gunk-benighted hair before a deep-conditioning DS Studio Organic mask imbues follicles with nourishing emollients. During the second option, the blowout is bolstered by a visage revamping from resident makeup master Diego, who prettifies faces with MAC, Christian Dior, and Laura Mercier cosmetics. The one-hour updo and makeup application prep faces for special events, bestowing hair with vertical verve and allowing guests look their best for weddings, galas, or morning trips to the mailbox.
The studio’s elegant interior relaxes patrons during head-gilding visits. Calming cream-colored walls lull frazzled psyches into relaxed repose, and marble countertops exude a classically chic aura. Fresh flowers round out the tranquil atmosphere and incessantly wave at customers with their leaves as they get made up. All Groupon holders receive an additional 10% off organic DS Studio haircare products on their first visit.
DS Studio resides in a street-level brownstone building, which contrasts sharply with the pure white walls, leather chairs, and marble countertops within the intimate salon. This minimalistic, European aesthetic is echoed in the styling techniques and trends of owners and master stylists Demetris and Savita, both of whom have showcased their work in Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. Though Demetris and Savita put the DS in the salon's name, the studio also is home to a color director who transforms hair hues, a balayage specialist who adds sun-kissed color to the ends of hair, and a nail technician trained in reflexology and waxing for men, women, and invisible friends. As an advocate for healthy hair, the salon only uses 100% organic products, including their namesake line of haircare infused with botanical extracts imported from Greece.
