Set on the ground floor of one of the neighborhood's iconic brownstones, Frajean offers basic cuts, color, and deep-conditioning, as well as an extensive menu of Afrocentric services like relaxers, weaves, and dreadlock-twisting. Owner Jean Sopinko, who grew up in Park Slope, also pulls in an eclectic mix of products: Curl-focused Deva Care, L'Oréal Professional, and Alfaparf, a Milanese line that uses plant extracts to boost shine. At the manicure station by the bay window, guests can watch Seventh Avenue's steady stream of strollers or, if they're feeling peaked, squeeze in a quick face-tanner application while waiting for their polish to dry. Like every New Yorker, Sopinko had to figure out a savvy way to save space in her digs, so she created a lair for massages, facials, and waxing by draping nearly every inch—even the ceiling–of her salon's once-desolate basement in lustrous cream fabric, leaving only the original brick archways exposed.Senior Citizens' Day
