While the claim to being “the original super salon” in the city might not hold much weight (it didn’t open until 1965), this salon does have a stake in history. All of the “swans” on the guest list for Truman Capote’s legendary Black and White Ball were styled by Bollei (back when the salon was housed in the Plaza Hotel). About ten years later, it moved and became one of the first tenants in the Galleria. Still in the grand cement-framed building, the salon continues to draw celebrity clients, but the attraction is more of a family affair: Sets of grandmothers, mothers and daughters come for cross-generational pampering. The most popular service is color correction (single processing starts at $100), and of the 95-person staff, at least half are experts in the procedure. The two-story salon is also known for eyebrow waxing ($50) and precise cuts (starting at $110 for women).

My husband and I have been going to this salon for years. We book our appointments online and get a rapid response through email. The convenience of having everything under one roof,(haircut & style, manicure/pedicure,spa,etc), is fantastic. I have Always been 100% satisfied with each and every service I have received. Would HIGHLY Recommend Gerard Boilei Salon........
