After earning her chops at a handful of well-regarded salonsóDop Dop, Minardi, Beauty Parlour, and Blackstonesóhairstylist Julie Dickson took her accrued clientele and opened this pretty, personalized spot in April 2009 (the name references a game of pretend played by her young daughter and son). The salon combines the cool factor of her former downtown posts with an air of uptown polish: The four stations face antique mirrors, and dated music cabinets bear styling tools and vases of fresh flowers. Globe pendant lights hang above ornate French parlor chairs in the small waiting area, and the two shampoo sinks are shielded from the rest of the space by an elaborately tiled, curved wall. Dickson uses Davines, Redken, and L'Oréal products, combining wet and dry cutting methods to observe the natural tendencies of the hair. She tailors her technique according to her diverse clientele, which includes students, stylishly rumpled men, and various downtown creative types. Though Dickson is adept at both classic and sharp, angled cuts, her particular talent lies in fine tresses, which she coaxes into full-bodied, textured styles.
