We know some salons today can be a bit gimmicky—they’re more interested in selling their brands than the service. Blackstones does the same thing on its website, which seems to double as a video game with multi-clickable options. But don’t let that stop you from booking an appointment at this East Village salon. The stylists are obviously the main draw, led by owner Joey Silvestera, a taxidermist-turned-hairdresser. (A-ha! Now the deer and bear heads mounted on the wall make sense.) He has an impressive team of hipster hair-doers, cutely clothed with the locks to match. Instead of taking in a picture of Jennifer Aniston in order to emulate her latest hair craze, you’ll want to look just like these lovely hair-cutters. Silvestera also launched his own line of hair products, which work perfectly to complement your new look. 19 East 7th Street, 212-353-2680, blackstonesnyc.net (10003)
