Hairstylist Ursula Stephen gained popularity for her handiwork on Rihanna’s tresses, cutting the songstress’s long locks into her edgy bob. Stephen’s work has also appeared on the covers of Elle, Vogue and Glamour magazines, allowing her to command high prices for her chops ($750–$900). This 644-square-foot space is the Brooklynite’s first salon, where stylists trained by Stephen herself offer cuts (trim $35–$65, full cut $80–$155, men $60), color ($100), relaxers ($25–$150), hair extensions ($30–$80) and curly styling, such as coils ($90) and rod sets ($100). If your strands are feeling a bit fried, opt for just a wash and set ($80) or moisturizing treatment ($30).
