Getting your mane on-point in New York is both a luxury and a challenge. Sure, our city is coated with high-end salons filled to the brim with chairs and stylists offering pristine (but pricey) services ranging from cool-girl cuts to My Little Pony dye jobs. But what if you’re searching for a completely trustworthy spot, which offers a more personal experience and won’t cripple your bank account?

That’s why folks go to The Bird House—a euphoric, appointment-only lady den located in Gowanus—which treats its customers (even the newbies) like part of their tribe. That’s pretty fitting since the salon is deeply rooted in family ties. After meeting owners and sisters Brooke Jordan and Nicci Jordan Hubert, you won’t feel as if you’re about to get your hair done—the experience is like grabbing drinks and catching up with your best gal pals, with the added bonus of leaving looking like a million bucks.

Jordan and Hubert make you feel right at home by offering an assortment of free beverages, including tea, soda, water and champagne during your services. The recently revamped studio is now much larger. Folks can get cuts ($85–$140), color ($120–$165), balayage highlights (start at $230 for full), blowouts ($45–$65) or a restorative Olaplex treatment ($75–$105) that prevents damage and repairs your mane.

The owners definitely want to make sure you feel warm and welcome as well as beautiful and confident when you leave. (A hairdresser and colorist that actually cares and listens to your needs? Consider yourself #blessed.) After sipping, chatting and receiving the head massage of your dreams, make sure to eye up your new ’do in the restroom—but bring your camera!
