City Pulse

By Beauty News Staff

Having good hair is never overrated. A good cut or color can do wonders for your self-esteem, overall appearance and can shave a decade off of your age. On the other hand, a bad haircut (I’m sure we’ve all been there) is often met with the second glance and the sympathetic looks from your co-workers that have, “you poor dear, at least it grows back” written all over it. There’s certainly a reason that someone once coined the term, “having a bad hair day.” Finding the perfect salon in NYC can prove to be a more difficult task than finding your soul mate, and is usually more expensive. Search no more thanks to Self Salon.

Self Salon in Williamsburg – a newly revamped space that has a modern and airy feel with a calming white color palate – is an oasis just off of Bedford Ave. Exposed brick walls and distressed wood floors pays homage to its Brooklyn roots.

Self is owned by NYC native, Maria Barca who has filled her salon with a staff of diverse stylists who’ve been trained worldwide to meet the needs of any client. Got unruly curls? No prob. Want a fabulous updo or makeup for a wedding? They specialize in that. Dry cuts and balayage highlights? That’s Self’s signature. Maria has managed to find a fabulous group of stylist who are not only talented, but happen to be a lovely group of people (herself included) who listen to what you want and tell you what they’re doing while they’re doing it. The prices are also incredibly affordable you won’t need to sell plasma before you can afford your next balayage treatment (you know you wanna try it).

* Self Salon is offering 20% off all services (excluding bridal) until Oct 31st. So hop on the L train already, will ya?
