After working as an educator and stylist at curly-hair haven Oiudad, Alex Mnayarji has teamed up with longtime friend Allison Lacorazza (who helps run the business side of things) to open her first salon. The loftlike space features an open layout with dropped aluminum ceilings and purple accents. Services include haircuts for women ($95–$135) and men ($75–$105), highlights ($100–$275), deep-conditioning treatments ($75), revitalizing scalp treatments ($115) and relaxers ($175). While prices aren’t cheap, we love that five percent of the salon’s quarterly net profits benefit the Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition (barcshelter.org) and Gilda’s Club (gildasclubnyc.org), a Manhattan home for people living with cancer.

I was very happy with my experience at Alex Anthony. I made an appointment with Britney (the same name as me) and she was GREAT! Super sweet and very attentive. I just got a cut and blow-out to celebrate my birthday and she really took care to make it perfect. My hair is really long so a blow-out is no easy feat. It was one of the best blow-outs I've ever had. I left the salon feeling amazing. Looking forward to my next visit!
I love the highlights I got... I told her I wanted something subtle and that 's exactly what I got. The stylists really listened to me. The salon is really pretty and clean! The owner Alex is very sweet and skillful - she is very dedicated to making sure the clients are happy with their hair! I also really love the way the "use me" products make my hair feel, and it smells better than any hair care product I have ever used.
