2008 BEST Hairstylist, Women's $$$
Jeffrey Dauksevich, Umi Salon
A consultation with Umi’s often-brusque owner is no glib chatfest. (‘How do you feel? How do you want to feel?’ It’s a bit like going to your shrink.) The brave should still book an appointment, though, knowing they’ll walk out looking like a million bucks—which makes the $350 they just dropped a comparative bargain. Dauksevich, who gives each client at least an hour in his chair, doesn’t follow fads; instead, he works off hair texture, face shape, and personality to craft current, highly individual styles.
