Renowned colorist Stuart Hirsch may be popular with top models such as Julie Ordon and Jessica White, but his comfortably sleek West Village salon is wonderfully low-key. Exposed brick, curvy white walls, and custom-built, red-and-white styling stations give the space a clean, structured look. A small lounge area away from the front window allows clients to relax before or after their appointments, and a retail area near the reception offers Redken, TIGI, and L’Oréal products as well as B. The Product, an exclusive line by Blow Out star Brandon Martinez. The expert stylists and colorists on staff hail from such salons as Warren-Tricomi, Red Market, Cutler, and Pierre Michel, and are unified by their friendly, down-to-earth approach. In addition to cuts, color, and styling services, the salon offers natural weaves, Japanese relaxers, facial and body waxing, mani/pedicures, and makeup applications. Future plans call for a full-time massage therapist and skin-care specialist.
Indoor surfing, spinning lovefests, a luxurious pig-placenta facial, and more.
