You may recognize owner Nick Arrojo from TLC’s What Not to Wear, where he spent seven seasons as the official hairdressing host. His eponymous salons—in Soho, Tribeca and now Williamsburg—are known for upholding Nick’s signature razor technique. A cut by Mr. Arrojo himself will set you back $500, but an appointment with any of the specially trained stylists (ranked by experience in six different levels) range from $80 to $200. The salon also does color starting at $80 as well as makeup and add-on hair treatments. If you book at the flagship location in sSoho, check out the Italian café at the back of the salon during those long, multiple-steps-required appointments.

This is the only salon I trust to color my hair in New York. My colorist, Zoe, is outstanding! She always listens and works with me to execute the exact color I want. And it always turns out great! She's a hair wizard! The salon itself is beautiful. I love that there's a cafe—unless you need a caffeine fix. And I love Arrojo hair products. They're made with all the right ingredients. My favorite is the avocado + honey shampoo and conditioner. It makes me hair look so healthy and soft, plus the smell is AMAZING.
Yes, this is the lovely guy you used see on What Not to Wear! (And you'll actually see him there doing hair when you go!) I see Ali for color, Hogan for cut. Both are affordable and amazing. Plus, the place has a cafe, so you can sip a latte in a civilized way while waiting for your foils to set. This place is always buzzing, so make an appointment far in advance!
