I have been to some of the best salons in New York and San Francisco and I have to say the best hair stylist is Patricia at Prive. As a beauty industry executive, how you look is essential. I get great compliments about my hair which is a true endorsement. I?d say she is more like a creative artist, and being a Brit, she really gets it. If you you want a quick cut, don?t go to Patricia, she gives individualized attention and takes her time, even a simple cut can last up to 90 minutes, so she?s into quality not quantity which is so rare these days. You feel pampered while she is doing your hair, and her focus is totally on your hair. She?ll meet with you first, find out who you are, what you want you and all the while making mental notes, before your hair is washed. Has an incredible eye with great technical expertise, and that she has developed over many years after extensive training from Vidal Sassoon and working with John Sahag. So yes, she gives a ?dry cut? most of the time and for those of you who don?t know what that is - it is the best type of cut you can get - and so few know how to do it. Now I really don?t have anything against the young stylists just starting out, but why take a chance - my hair is to important to take a gamble. Her hair cuts are easy to care for and yes, your hair looks just as good everyday as when it was first cut. The only down side is that she is a little pricey, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. There are so many great salons in NYC that may have a higher profile than Prive - but if you?re getting your haircut by the ?salon?s celebrity hair stylist? you may not get a great cut, after all, its not the salon, but the stylist that?s doing your hair!
Pros: Individual attention, a cut that always looks great,
Cons: takes awhile, a little pricey but worth it
