This sunny salon has quickly gained devotees for its refreshingly friendly, upbeat vibe. Although walk-ins are welcome, it’s strongly advised that you make an appointment to avoid a wait. Of the six stylists available, we recommend booking with Kim Fernandez, who draws upon her extensive Redken training to work with your hair texture, face shape and skin tone. You’ll be guided to one of the four upstairs stations for the appropriate color application: A Redken Shades EQ demi-permanent glaze ($50) is recommended for those looking to revive dull tones, while a traditional Redken Chromatics single-process permanent treatment ($75) is used for color changes (pricier partial and full highlights are also available for $115 and $160, respectively). While you’re waiting for the treatment to set, scope out artwork ($200–$800) created by students at the nearby Pratt Institute; play with salon pup, Lucy; or relax on the secluded outdoor patio. The service concludes with a complimentary wash and dry (normally $45–$60). On your way out, grab the same Redken products ($14–$44) used in the salon to keep your tresses looking vibrant.
