Best of New York Beauty 2004

Best Hair Salon for Men's Hair

  • La Boîte à Coupe

    38 57th Street, between Madison and Park Aves., 4th floor, 212-246-2097

    When Moroccan-born, French-reared Laurent De Louya started cutting here in 1972, he quickly established a following among the young agents at William Morris. They’ve stayed loyal, and now his clientele also runs to the CEO set—including Time Warner Cable COO John Billock and Raymond Weil’s Benny Shabtai. His salon, La Boîte à Coupe, specializes in a well-groomed look but maintains the groovier locks of City Ballet’s Peter Martins, too.
