The trendy cuts and coiffures of renowned hair and beauty stylist Frédéric Fekkai (which are in high demand by New York socialites and Hollywood starlets) have made their way down to the richer reaches of the Sunshine State. This salon is, as expected, mostly geared towards hair. (After all, hair is what Fekkai does best.) Opened in 2004 with 10 stations and two treatment rooms, the 1,600-square-foot space is a luxurious zen-like escape staffed by local talents and, during peak seasons, top technicians who divide their time between here and New York.

A friend; yourself
WHY WE LIKE IT
The talents of Fekkai and his team are the stuff of legend. If you’ve ever worried about getting your look just right or completely restyling your hair without risking a translation disaster with your stylist, this is the place to come. Skill is never lacking here, and staff are all too eager to please. Its vicinity to the posh Worth Avenue is not to be overlooked, either, if you’re looking for a sceney shopping stretch on which to strut your new 'do.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
As he divides his time between salons in New York City and his home in Paris, it would be rare to spot Fekkai himself at this spot. (Though you can book a haircut with him specifically, for the modest price of USD 750). We have to admit we found the quality and energy of the NYC locale much more appealing: we liked our cuts better in NYC and found this spot small and just a bit boring in comparison.
GOOD TO KNOW
In addition to Frédéric’s work with runway models and magazine shoots, his clientele list reads along the lines of a who’s who of prominent celebs (think Renée Zellweger and Kim Basinger). Though this outpost is aimed more towards primping than pampering, massage and skin treatments are available (as well as select poolside and in-room services at The Brazilian Court for hotel guests who request them). Keep in mind that cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance; otherwise, the credit card used to make the reservation will be charged the full service price. Those who can’t get enough are welcome to purchase any of the signature Fekkai hair products, available on salon shelves or online (we swear by these!). The hair care line is divided into separate regimes for dealing with care, color, moisture, gloss, repair, style, and men’s grooming.
