In New York it sometimes isn’t so much where you got your hair cut as who cut it. There are a host of celebrity hairdressers based in the big apple, all ready to create something unique and amazing for you for that special occasion. In this article we’ll review just some of these hairdressers so when you need to look your best, you’ll know where to go.
1. Ted Gibson
When you first meet Ted Gibson, you might think he’s more boxer than hairdresser. “It’s only when I pull out a can of hairspray and a brush that they’re like, ‘Okay, got it,'” he told TRULY. Gibson has worked with such stars as Anne Hathaway, Ashley Greene, Debra Messing, Janelle Monae, Marion Cotillard, Mila Kunis, Tina Fey and Rashida Jones. With just one salon in NYC, bookings are at a premium but are much sought after. TRULY might just have your way in, though.
A quote by Frederic Fekkai reveals much about his ethos on cutting hair. “There is no bad hair. There is only beautiful hair. And I am only here to help every woman understand that.” Fekkai’s style is very much to work with the woman and her hair to reveal a style that had been there all along. Trained in Paris Fekkai now has saloons right across America with four in New York alone.
3. Serge Normant at John Frieda
When a hairdresser can count the likes of Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, Julianne Moore and Sarah Jessica Parker, as well as supermodels Gisele Bundchen, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford among his clients you know he is going to be good. That is the case with Serge Normant who works in partnership with the legendary John Frieda at two establishments in NYC.
4. Sally Hershberger
It can be something of a rarity to find a woman on the list of the best hairdressers, it seems to be a list normally populated by men. However, arguably, Hershberger is the first world renowned celebrity hairdresser. Although she spends a lot of her time with directors and celebrities on jobs, you can also find Hershberger at one of her two NYC based salons regularly – the other being in LA.
5. Rita Hazan
Another female hairdresser and another one boasting a long list of celebrity clients – Rita has created signature styles for Katy Perry, Jessica Simpson, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Michelle Williams, and Britney Spears. Hazan still makes time to work in her NYC salon as well as developing her range of haircare products.
