Cut and Dried

Four new excuses to chop it all off.


Ursula Stephen   

Ursula Stephen
66 Lafayette Ave., nr. S. Portland Ave., Ft. Greene; 347-457-5834
Best known as Rihanna’s bob-master, Stephen personally trains the stylists at this four-station spot. On the menu: roller-setting ($60), extensions (from $30), relaxers (from $100), and, if you want, cuts by the star beautician herself (from $750).
From $50 for men’s cuts, $80 for women’s; $120 for color.

Rheanne White
14 Jay St., nr. Staple St. 212-966-2928
The coiffeur behind Lena Dunham’s darling pixie crop—and a veteran cutter of other celebrity manes (e.g., Amy Adams, Paul Rudd)—is set to open a namesake salon in Tribeca as early as late July. The former fine-arts gallery will house ten chairs and offer unisex services.
Prices TBD.

Original & Mineral
55 Little W. 12th St., nr. Washington St. 212-255-2445
This Australian salon, which specializes in organic treatments, opened its first U.S. outpost in June. Clients sit for appointments at a communal table, where they can watch classic movies projected onto a wall.
From $90 for men’s cuts, $140 for women’s; $90 for color.

Bristle + Cream
416 Third Ave., nr. 29th St.; 212-685-9475
At this salon-spa-gallery-espresso-bar hybrid, Kim Vu offers aesthetician treatments such as collagen facials ($175), in addition to hair services. In September, she’ll launch an atelier program, allowing clients to book appointments with in-demand editorial stylists.
From $45 for men’s cuts, $75 for women’s; $95 for color.
