2004 Best Haircut, Women's

Dirk Diegel, Vidal Sassoon

It takes time for a hairstylist to earn your trust—time that is measured in inch-long increments. Dirk Diegel instantly inspires confidence with his careful, studied, and razor-sharp cutting skills. Trained at Vidal Sassoon in Germany (which explains the accent and stoicism), he’s a master at improving the texture, consistency, and shape of your strands. Short, long, curly, or straight locks—Diegel takes on the most challenging head cases and comes out a cut above.
