2007 BEST Hair Salon, North
Greeted by strains of club music and stylistas sporting wild chunks of hair color, the Indra newcomer may fear she’s crashing a too-hip party. But this decade-old Aveda salon is a pro at putting clients at ease, be it with a neck rub or glass of wine. Consequently, it has a lot of them: thirtysomethings, dads with kids in tow, prep schoolers, mothers-in-law. There are 30-plus snippers on staff, so odds are good someone here will "get" your hair (we adore Jennifer Traverso, a bona fide curl whisperer), and with a senior stylist’s cut starting at just $55, you won’t pay dearly for that wisdom.
