155 W 21st St., New York, NY 10011

De Berardinis

Go for Italian verve at this parlor, a sequel to Adrian De Berardini's Greenwich, CT venue. Expect maximized volume thanks to a unique "crochet" layering process that eschews thinning shears for scissors.
180 Varick St., New York, NY 10014


The snippers here are all alumni of an 18-month training program designed by Nick Arrojo, the British stylist who opened this minimalist salon in 2003 after stints at Bumble and Bumble and Vidal Sassoon. Leave with a fresh coiff and free cosmetic touch-up.
465 W Broadway, New York, NY 10012


Bumble and Bumble vet Rodney Cutler cuts for a fashionable crowd including designers, models and stylists arranging picture perfect editorial shoots. Also popular with brides-to-be as their big day approaches.
712 5th Ave., New York, NY 10019

Frédéric Fekkai Fifth Avenue

Practically a household name, the French Fekkai has sat near the top of the follicular fold for since the Reagan administration. That doesn't stop Hilary Clinton (and Sigourney Weaver, Kim Basinger and Beyonce) from submitting to his shears.
425 W 14th St., New York, NY 10014

Sally Herschberger

A premier salon without pretense. Still, expect to pay top dollar for your locks here. For color, seek out Dana Ionato.
