My stylist/hairdresser recently opened a salon of her own after working for the salon Hair Metal for four years. The Horse Salon is a beautifully designed space by her friend and collegue Iris DeSoto that resembles a Western barbershop, decorated with antiques, sepia-tone photographs and deep mahogany wood fixtures with light marble countertops.
My favorite element is the lighting, the chandeliers I believe were a flee market find, as were the bergere chairs.
Kristi Banister, the owner is laid back, yet cheerful tattoo covered maven. She has great taste and is very honest when it comes to your hair. She's never given me a bad cut or a cut that made me cry (which is amazing considering that every other hair dresser has caused that.) The shop and the prices are really reasonable, cuts starting at $60 for a ladies and $40 for gentlemen. If you're ever in the Williamsburg area, I really suggest that one should check the salon out.
