Nestled along a tranquil, tree-lined block, the salon is convenient (and open late) for its local clientele of twenty- and thirty-something artists and professionals, as well as for those visiting the nabe on a night out. The menu of services is as modest as the salon itself—cuts, highlights, single-process color, Brazilian keratin, and makeup application—but it’s all heaped with good cheer and focused expertise. The stylists pride themselves on listening closely to clients’ needs rather than pushing the latest trends, and further sweeten the experience with free scalp massages. The salon’s unhurried, lounge-like vibe encourages clients to hang out (assuming they can find room), as does the wine that flows freely all day.


First-time customers receive $20 off any service if they mention this listing.


The salon formerly known as Cutting Image is under new management, offering bridal updos from $150. If you want to book a fun girls’ day before walking down the aisle, this is the place—parties of up to nine can rent the entire salon by the hour, and bridal-party packages start at $100 per bridesmaid for wash, blowout, and updo.
