Profile

Thirty-year industry veteran Ric Pipino opened this vampy, opulent salon in May 2009, adorning the space with crystal chandeliers, a zebra skin rug, black and white zig-zag flooring, and ornate aqua wallpaper. The Aussie stylist is well-known among the red-carpet set, counting Bridget Moynahan, Jaime Pressly, and Kelly Killoren Bensimon among his patrons and lending his services regularly for magazine shoots and ad campaigns. The sleek waiting area is stationed in the back—nestled between the two wash sinks and a kitchen—lending an air of privacy to the cutting stations in front. Clients perch in three faceted black Fendi chairs, surrounded by nude illustrations by artist Richard Phillips. Pipino and his staff specialize in meticulous precision cuts, shunning razors in favor of scissors for control and subtlety. Brow-shaping is available from self-proclaimed Eyebrow King Damone Roberts, and a small retail section showcases accessories from local designers, including jewelry by Genevieve Jones and Felix Ray handbags. And since it’s been a long-term dream of Pipino's to combine a flower shop with a hair salon, small bouquets of roses and daisies are sold outside during warmer months.

Bridal Hair

Celebrity stylist Ric Pipino’s opulent salon helps brides find their look. In-salon trials range from $200 to $400. A haircut with Pipino (plan ahead: he books eight weeks in advance) is $300. While you’re there, put yourself on a waiting list to get an expert brow shaping from “eyebrow king” Damone Roberts.
