When enterprising hair stylist Valery Joseph was injured during a stint in the Israeli army, the young soldier persuaded his commanding officer to send him to Tel Aviv to learn hair-cutting techniques, rather than being discharged. When he returned to the ranks, Joseph became the female soldiers’ unofficial stylist. Years later, Joseph has achieved near-celebrity status, tending to the tresses of Anna Wintour and Tara Reid with a team of colorists and stylists from his main salon, at Madison Avenue and 79th Street. There, multitasking socialites receive simultaneous blow outs and mani-pedis, while frizz-ravaged women soak up his popular moisturizing Brazilian keratin treatments. Joseph’s second salon location, ten blocks away, also offers hydrating hour-long facials in a small makeshift room. Brow master Rachel Gangemi has her own nook here, where she uses scissors and tweezers to sculpt the arches of a star-studded clientele. But the high-wattage set need never set foot in either of these artfully designed spaces: Joseph’s staff makes house calls seven days a week.


These Upper East Side salons offer sophisticated wedding-day updos and hair extensions. Prices start at $200 for in-salon work; on-location day rates to style the bridal party range from $1,500 to $2,500, depending on the location and number of people.
