Best of New York Beauty 2004

Best New Salon

  • Mark Garrison

    108 East 60th Street, 212-400-8000

    Mark Garrison’s new salon looks like an Ian Schrager hotel gone uptown: Upper East Side townhouse setting, white walls, frosted glass. At 7,000 square feet, 46 stations, and five floors, it’s double the size of Garrison’s old Madison Avenue home and a testament to the skill with which he’s tended to A-list tresses (Ashley Judd, Sandra Bullock, Matthew McConaughey) for the past seven years. What sets Garrison ($275) apart from his peers is the simple fact that almost every afternoon, he can actually be found overseeing his crew in person—a rarity for any celebrity, let alone a hairdresser.
