You’re in for a sure thang when you enter this charming West Village salon owned by sheer genius Shaun "Surething" Cottle and rocker Johanna Fateman of LeTigre and MEN fame.
Seagull Salon (Instagram), named after the novel, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, is the first-ever unisex salon in the city, since 1971. Equal parts retro and funky, it’s adorned with vintage collectables (in both décor and repeat customers) and a downtown-creatives clientele who come for Mr. Cottle's charm as much as his considerable talents.
Mr. Cottle specializes in color–specifically unconventional but natural looking color. Trust him to amp up your red or your platinum but still make it look wearable and, most importantly, beautiful.
Cuts from $100, single process $100+, highlights $175+, blow-dry $75+. Corrective color upon consultation.
