The SN Guide To A Great Haircut

Trusting someone new to cut your hair can be stressful, scary and certainly a risk!

We’ve done the dirty work to find our favorite salons in the city, so if you’re in the mood for a change, be sure to check them out. We all have different hair types, styles and needs when it comes to that perfect cut, so read on for why each Team SN member thinks their salon is the best!

Dana: IGK Salons

Hair Stylist: 
Aaron Grenia


Describe your experience: 
Aaron has somewhat of a cult following amongst hairdressers across the country and I immediately understood why! He has a unique style and understands the connection between cutting and styling (which is fitting since he is one of the masterminds behind the IGK brand of products). I think we’ve all left a haircut loving it, only to go home and realize we can’t actually style it ourselves. Before he cut a single hair on my head, Aaron asked tons of questions about my everyday styling routine. He then created a cut with that in mind. He just gets it. Two weeks later I’m loving the way my new hair dries, with just a few dabs of Rich Kid and a spritz of Beach Club. The IGK salon itself is very downtown cool and chic, with a bit of artsy flare. Perfect for your post-haircut Instagram moment. 

Anna: Warren Tricomi (Flatiron)

Hair Stylist: 
Nick Antiaris


Describe your experience: 
The salon is beautiful and they are so quick and so good! Nick was such a great stylist. He listened to what I needed and was very accommodating :). It was the haircut I really needed and he didn’t take off too much or too little. I also did a keratin treatment, which only took 90 minutes instead of the usual 3 hours at other salons I have been to. And I was able to wash my hair right away! 

Tara: Frederic Fekkai Soho

Hair Stylist: 
Jordi Martinez


Describe your experience:

Frederick Fekkai in Soho is a very welcoming and chic salon.  Because I have short hair, I’m typically in and out within 45 minutes – efficiency I love! Jordi was the one who cut my hair short for the first time, and I wouldn’t trust anyone else. Although my hair is fine and short, aka not much to it, attention to detail on just a trim is paramount. When the cut is complete, Jordi gives the BEST blow-outs!  Anna made an important call-out that the lighting in the salon is really good, allowing customers to feel their very best.

Nikki: Sharon Dorram at Sally Hershberger

Hair Stylist:

Temur Hamilton


Describe your experience:

SDSH is the perfect salon if you are looking for a quiet moment of relaxation to yourself. The team does an incredible job at making sure that you feel comfortable, there is always great music playing and since the floor for cut/color is not too big, it never feels overcrowded. I started going to Temur when I decided to cut my hair a bit shorter and right away, I felt confident that he was the right person for the job. He gave my hair volume and life while keeping all points in mind that I had told him before starting to cut. It doesn’t hurt that I also get my hair colored here by Cass (who is a color genius) and I get to complete both tasks in one stop!
