ION Studio is an environmentally sustainable hair salon owned by celebrated editorial hairstylists Marco Santini and Leonardo Manetti, whose work is featured on the runways, in magazines and in major advertising campaigns. The collective talent here is as good as you will find anywhere in the city. When the hair on the page you have torn out of Vogue to show your stylist was actually done by said stylist, you cannot go wrong.
The trio (and a few junior stylists) specialize in simple, wearable cuts and balayage color, and intend for their styles to last for six to eight months (trims and glosses are complimentary for regulars). The salon uses a variety of products with an eco-friendly philosophy, some paraben- and sulfate-free. Clients include Diane Kruger, Olivia Wilde and Kim Kardashian.
Cuts are $85 to $250, single process from $110, highlights $150 and up, blowout from $65. Hair extensions $800 and up.
Corrective color upon consultation.
