Fabulous Haircuts and Hair Color on the Cheap
I love high end haircuts by skilled stylists and beautiful, subtle color by equally skilled colorists, but alas, I only have the budget for cut-rate services.
Problem solved. I have discovered how to get my hair services at some of New York’s top salons. The secret? Go to the apprentices at these salons; they are all graduates of reputable schools and are under the direct supervision of the master stylists and colorists.
First on my list: The Arrojo Studio on Varick Street in New York City If you watch What Not to Wear, you have seen Nick Arrojo create superb styles and color for the show. And if you don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend on Nick’s magic razor cuts, one of his apprentices might come reasonably close.
Apprentice cuts are only $20; Color is $30. Call 212-242-7786 and say you want an apprentice appointment. As apprentices train for many months, if you find someone you like, you can ask for him or her for future appointments. I’ve been fortunate enough to do exactly that – but please don’t ask me to share the name of my favorite apprentice because that’s my well-guarded secret. Stay tuned for more great places where the services are fabulous and the prices are downright cheap.
