Step in from hectic Fifth Avenue and you'll feel instantly calmed by the interior of warm woods in this swank salon-cum-spa (emphasis on the salon). But don't expect total serenity: a constant stream of clients keeps the atmosphere lively and active. The long lines of salon chairs are often filled with bridal parties (packages available).

WHY WE LIKE IT
The stylists have been well-trained in the Fekkai approach to give you a look that dazzles. We like ordering a cappuccino and then hunkering down with our iPad while we get pampered alongside international movers and shakers. (We’ve seen Sting here! And many a model.)
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
While the hair care products work miracles, we're not crazy about having them pushed on us.
GOOD TO KNOW
Wireless internet is available to all customers, so you can get some work done on your laptop or play on your iPad while being styled. Occasionally, when he's not tending to his A-List clientele “on location,” Frédéric Fekkai himself may appear. The salon is located on the top floor of Henri Bendel, one of our favorite spots for a shop.
