This modest East Village salon is helmed by Shalom Sharon, an Israeli stylist with decades of experience under his belt. The salon is minimalist but comfortable, with four stations for cutting, and red accents dotting the bright white room. He received his initial training in Tel Aviv, and cut women’s hair in the Israeli army during his tour of service, but it was in the Tel Aviv salon circuit that Shalom Sharon made a name for himself. After coming to Manhattan, he opened his salon in 2006 and rose through the ranks on the fashion scene, styling hair for runway models and magazine spreads (including New York’s 2009 Wedding Guide). Despite a portfolio filled with high-profile gigs, much of Sharon’s work takes place in his namesake salon, where he’s joined by two other stylists. He specializes in women’s cuts, particularly in taming curlier manes, but takes on coloring, updos, and bridal packages. A testament to his high-profile background, Sharon approaches each cut with the same professionalism as he would an editorial shoot.
