2009 BEST Hair Salon, North
There’s something of an X-Men feel to the staff photo on Indra’s website, and it’s justified: The black-clad stylists lined up like superchic superheroes do, in fact, have serious hair powers. Their not-so-secret lair is a hip, Aveda-branded salon known to the likes of Paula Cole and Olympian Jenna Johnson; there, pros including co-owner Jose Batistine (brings dying color back to life!) and senior stylist Jen Traverso (rescues curls in distress!) perform their follicular feats. And at Indra’s fast-growing ‘talent academy,’ the next generation of wonder-cutters delivers new ‘dos at wallet-saving prices.
