- Josephine Beauty Retreat
200 East 62nd Street, 212-223-7157
Steven Rice, a stylist at Josephine, gives curls that range from Sarah Jessica–esque to softer and more natural—think Angelina at the Oscars. Rice’s talent has won him popularity with supermodels Heidi Klum and Josie Maran and magazine editors (he’s done shoots for Allure and InStyle). For a tight, structured look, he adds silicon and crimps the entire head. For a softer wave, he uses a heat processor and a large-barrel curling iron. From $60.

Where can you find the city’s top dog groomer? Last-minute tailor? Beef tongue? We eat, drink, dance, shop, shvitz, and trampoline our way around the city, not to mention poll scores of in-the-know colleagues, hard-partying friends, opinionated family members, and, this year, a team of guest expert bloggers to bring you answers to all of the above questions, and hundreds more, in the form of our annual “Best of New York” issue.
