John Barrett sets the standard when it comes to natural looking color, glamorous cuts and the latest Japanese hair treatments. Mr. Barrett and his staff of 100 lure countless editors, celebs and socialites to his luxe aerie with its polished wood floors and expansive views of Central Park. Clients rave about Barrett's Elementage hair care product line, as well as his special knack for "blonding" and beautiful, long-lasting cuts that are deliberately not "signature" but ultimately superior. The Braid Bar attracts the young and beautiful with hair to spare -- for creative and wearable braids of all kinds. (Instagram)
