Yuka Tsurumi, 37, assistant creative director at Sassoon Salon Uptown (sassoon.com), Harlem

Her style: “In a word: eccentric.”

Her inspirations: “Kaleidoscopes. I love mixing vibrant colors and prints. Also, the 1960s are really inspirational, particularly Peggy Moffitt.”

Her signature pieces: “Definitely my haircuts and crazy eyelashes.”

Favorite stores:Forever 21 for fun clothes at terrific prices, Topshop for leggings and jewelry, Uniqlo for designer T-shirts and Beacon’s Closet for fabulous dresses.”

On New York style: “I lived in Tokyo, Atlanta and L.A. before settling here, and I think New York style is like no other: original, flamboyant and individual.”

Score a discounted chop with Tsurumi! Mention TONY to receive a haircut for $100 (normally $125) through July 16.
