Finding a salon and a hairstylist you trust is no easy task. Similarly to dating, you have to play the field a bit, get together a couple of times, weigh your options, and ultimately decide whether they're worth settling down for. It's exhausting, but once you meet the one, there's no turning back. In fact, one 2013 survey found that British women's relationships with their hairstylists last, on average, longer than their marriages. Oof.
For those Big Apple go-getters still single in the salon department (or for those casual daters finally looking to make things official), we're here to play matchmaker. We asked our beauty editors (who have some of the best hair in the biz) for their favorite salons across New York City, as well as their go-to stylists and colorists.
Check out the list ahead (some salons were so nice, they were even called out twice). Hopefully, you're prepared for a long-term, loving, and committed relationship, because that's what you're going to get with these recs. Here's to love, health, happiness, and really, really great hair.
