Best known for coiffing celebrities like Ellen Barkin and Sarah Jessica Parker, Normant routinely jets around the globe snipping, blowing and teasing at fashion-magazine photo shoots and advertising campaigns. If you'd like the S.J.P. treatment, you might want to start saving now: A haircut by Normant costs $500. (Cuts from his underlings start at $125.) The meatpacking-district salon occupies a raw industrial space that has been appointed with luxurious flourishes like pony-skin ottomans, a mini koi pond, and a chandelier in the cutting room. Should your hair need coloring from an A-lister, do not fret—Normant has brought along Harry Josh, celebrity colorist.Extra
Sally Hershberger, of the famously studied Meg Ryan "my-hair-just-looks-like-this" sexy shag, is also associated with the brand; she's one of the inventors of Frieda's super-successful product line, which includes everyone's summer staple, Frizz-Ease.
