Coast to Coast: Women Share Their Favorite Hair Salons in NY and L.A.

We’d argue that our hairstylists know us better than our friends do. With each trim, blow-dry, and color, we’re also getting a good therapy session, even if it just means them listening to our woes. If we’re feeling brittle and broken down (much like our split ends), our stylists will fix both issues before we walk out the door (with a sassy new chop, to boot).

Yes, we’ve become so close with our stylists that we don’t hesitate for a second to recommend their services to a co-worker, a friend, or you, dear readers. Because frankly, when you find a good salon, you stick to it. (Though admittedly we’ve found a few gems that we’re loyal to, especially us bicoastal editors.)

Below, you’ll find our picks for the best salons in New York City and Los Angeles. We recommend these salons for not only the quality of their cuts but also their aesthetics and overall service. Keep scrolling to find out which ones we picked!
