best transformational salon and guest house - 2003
Customers from as far away as Istanbul and Amsterdam come for help in turning the "he in you" into "the she in you." Immaculate, discreet, courteous, and set in a 125-year-old, 22-room Victorian, FAIRPLAYTV is an all-services salon selling wigs, shoes, dresses, corsets to size 42, and stem-to-stern makeovers that can be videotaped so you'll know how to do them once you get home. Also a bed-and-breakfast for $150 a night (from which the proprietress has wisely omitted the morning mealtoo busy making clients look beautiful to scramble eggs). A little bit of paradise on Staten Island.
