Cutler Cut

Cutler Salon on 57th St.

I recently had the good fortune to experience the Cutler Salon for some midday beautifying. I visited this hip hair parlor at the hip Ganesvoort Hotel on Park Avenue South—an intimate space with the appropriate minimalist design: vertical mirrors with frosted embellishment, simply dark leather styling chairs, and two very talented young men— Ivan, who suggested copper highlights to freshen up my hair color—“don’t go too dark, it does tend to age the face” he advised—and Ryan, who simply gave my current haircut a healthy trim and then showed me how to give it height with “wrapping”—blowing each section of your hair in the opposite direction for optimum fullness. (It worked, beautifully!). I left this salon with my hair looking thick, fuller, shiny, well-styled and ready for whatever New York had in store for me for the rest of the week. Men’s and women’s hair cuts run between $90-$150 and full highlights from $190-$210. Cutler Salon offers three locations: 47 W. 57th St., 212.308.3838; 465 W. Broadway, 212.674.2210; and 420 Park Ave. South, in the Hotel Gansevoort, 646.380.5336
