Haute Hair

Wish you could update your 'do with a superstar like Nick Arrojo, the hair maven on TLC's What Not To Wear? If the $500.00 fee is a deterrent, yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus: You can experience a Nick Arrojo cut or color for $68, by an experienced "base level" stylist, trained in his cutting/styling/makeover techniques. These stylists joined the salon with prior hairdressing experience and they have completed a two year apprenticeship. “Base level” stylists include Nicole, the second runner-up on Bravo's Shear Genius season 2. See bios of the base level stylists at http://www.arrojostudio.com/studio/featured/baselevelstylists.htm. A posh ‘do at this price sounds far fetched, considering other star-calibre NY Salons (including Warren Tricomi and Frederic Fekkai), charge $131 for cuts and $275 for highlights by junior stylists. Truth is, Julie, my budget/style savvy daughter (who, for the past year, got hair cuts and highlights for free as a hair model at Bumble & Bumble) discovered this Arrojo bargain and got gorgeous highlights for $68. She convinced me to join her for a haircut (we went to Rea) and the compliments have been coming ever since.
