2018 Best Women's Haircut

Dayna Gamba, Love and Mercy

Dayna Gamba brandishes a pair of clippers like a sculptor’s tool, deftly shaping locks of hair into works of art. Trained as a barber and a stylist, she’s the rare double threat who can give clients a graceful fade or a fierce bob. An unsolved mystery is how she’s able to be both so precise with her cuts and so charming with her conversation. But there is no question that adventurous style mavens, buttoned-up CEOs, and everyone in between will leave her chair absolutely in love with Dayna—and their hair.
