Profile

The sumptuously decorated 4,000-square-foot beauty haven on 57th Street is the flagship location of stylist Edward Tricomi and colorist Joel Warren's much-celebrated collaboration. Since the New York City-born duo opened shop here on a shoestring in 1996, they have draped the place in Persian rugs, baroquely oversized gilt mirrors, and Gaudi-esque curved glass vanities. With feet stuck into bright copper basins, clients get milk and honey pedicures inside of what resembles a Moroccan tent; the neighboring waxing room is adorned with Egyptian hand-blown glass beads. But the real attraction here is the pair's charm and skill. The charismatic Tricomi, who moonlights as a musician, brings a rocker's penchant for performance to haircutting: His signature "tunneling" cut—which earned him the nickname "Edward Scissorhands"—is a whirlwind of shears on dry hair that creates a funky, layered look. Warren, meanwhile, boasts that with his precise yet quick color applications, of which Jessica Alba and Kate Beckinsale are fans, a whole head can be swathed in foils within half an hour. Despite the speed of the services themselves, the frenetic pace of the salon means that a wait is almost always inevitable—and best enjoyed with a tall iced latte and a stroll by the salon's expertly-staffed Paula Dorf makeup and skincare counter.
