Salon SCK

Upper West Side
Former Vidal Sassoon employees Mark Sweet, Lai Sweeching, Clint Kelly and Kelly Lin—whose initials together form the titular SCK—have branched out and opened their own 24-chair salon, in a sprawling space that once housed a dance studio. Sweet personally had a hand in the industrial yet warm decor, featuring exposed-brick walls, poured-concrete coffee tables, leather couches and a rotating gallery displaying the works of local artists (it currently shows the photography of husband-and-wife duo Formento & Formento, $800–$2,400). Shu Uemura, Wella and Kerastase products are exclusively used in services such as cuts ($98–$148), color ($95–$285), conditioning treatments ($30–$60), blowouts ($50–$100) and updos ($150–$250). There’s also a private room for getting manicures ($22) and pedicures ($40) with O.P.I. and Essie lacquers, as well as a Giella Custom Blend makeup bar, which offers full-face ($75) and lash ($30) applications. Since all of the brand’s cosmetics are custom-blended on the spot, you can have a discontinued lipstick re-created ($28) or bring in a favorite sweater and have a matching nail polish ($25) whipped up before your eyes.
