At Spoke & Weal Soho, you don’t tell Master Stylist Kelsy Osterman the exact length you’re going for—she lets your hair’s natural texture dictate that for you instead. After listening to your locks (by seeing where your curls and waves start and end), she snips to perfection, delivering modern cuts full of body and volume. Meanwhile, on the lower level of the two-floor salon, Master Colorist Madison Rae Garrett excels in bold hues and beachy balayage, creating dreamy shades every time. Another Jetsetter editor says her chop and color with these two talents was the best hairmakeover she’s ever had.
For those looking for a time-efficient yet stylish service, Valery Joseph Salon provides a team dedicated to the client for a blowout, manicure and makeup application simultaneously. Indulge in a keratin treatment before opting for the signature beach wave hairdo, which teases tresses into soft curls with a brush instead of a traditional curling iron for the perfect bohemian look. 1044 Madison Ave., Floor 2.
Fringe was one of the first salons to open in the Lower East Side 15 years ago, and it’s stuck around for a reason. Founder Amy Schiappa was on a mission to create a space that was inspiring and inclusive, andthat’s exactly what she’s achieved with the salon’s cute vintage barbershop-esque look and her staff of creative and considerate stylists. When one Jetsetter editor visited, the salon had a relaxed, intimate feel and everyone from the receptionist to Amy herself was welcoming—the complete opposite of the intimidating vibe some NYC salons are known to show off.
With the most famous branch nestled in the Plaza Hotel, Warren Tricomi salons are known for their dry cuts and natural highlights. Opt for the Japanese thermal reconditioning treatment, which promises pin- straight and silky hair no matter the initial texture. 1 W. 58th St.
With locations in hotspots like Soho and Brooklyn, plus a residency at the Arlo SoHo hotel, it’s no wonder Cutler is a favorite among the fashion crowd. (Its celeb and model clientele doesn’t hurt either—one look at Cutler’s Instagram will reveal lots of famous faces.) Make an appointment with colorist Ryan Pearl for a dye job worthy of the runway (he’s worked with Hailey Bieber, Kelsea Ballerini, and more) or Melissa Parizot for a cool model-girl cut.
