With a roster of insanely celebrated stylists, John Frieda's salons offer cuts and color that are about as skilled as they come. Stylist Serge Normant, who took the helm at the Meatpacking-District salon in 2007, is Julia Roberts' go-to guy; he's also available for those of us who aren't tabloid fodder for the week. Though related, the two locations operate as separate entities: 76th Street is smaller, airy, bright, oozing with understated elegance, and surprisingly hushed. You can get a manicure, sip tea, and let your highlights set here simultaneously. "We get people from downtown quite frequently," says Normant, referring to both south of 14th Street and south of the Mason-Dixon: Many of his clients fly in from Texas and Georgia for the day to keep their standing appointments.
