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.
