In this subterranean respite, hair veteran and Louisiana native Sam Brocato delivers high-end cuts without the wallet-breaking price tag. The space skews industrial-chic, accented with oversize mirrors, exposed brick, and a futuristic-looking shampoo bar featuring individualized treatments from Brocato’s custom product line (which, sold in 26 countries, also includes everything from hair clay to his new hair coloring system). The staff is stuffed full of talent, from manicurist extraordinaire Beatriz Nájera, who utilizes the formaldehyde-free Deborah Lippman line, and has worked on celebrities like Gwen Stefani and Demi Moore, to extension guru Jiwon Yang, a red carpet expert who can also beef up your special occasion 'do. Stylists are ranked from the affordable New Talent ($65) to the still-reasonable Director ($133). And while Brocato occasionally cuts at the salon, your chances for a good cut aren’t hindered if you try someone unknown. After all, they may end up being the next big thing.

For All the Single Ladies

Brocato offers private blowout parties for bachelorettes getting ready for a night on the town. They provide a wash and blow dry, plus drinks and snacks. Call for further details.

Holiday Season:
The salon is normally closed on Sunday, but during the Holidays they’re open from 1 p.m. 7 p.m.
