Best for curls

David Noll at Sine Qua Non: “Every curly-haired girl has had a salon horror story,” Noll says. Since not all curls are creatd equal, he starts each appointment (from $64) by examining the curl pattern, density, and length of hair. By cutting soft, long layers, he removes weight, allowing curls to spring up naturally. He swears by Bumble and Bumble’s Curl Conscious Defining Creme and uses a twisting technique while drying hair with a diffuser to style perfect ringlets. “With the right cocktail of products and a proper cut, curly hair can be the most stunning of all textures,” Noll says.

ALSO RECOMMENDED: Jeffery Ching flies in from New York every few months to cut curls at Sandi Hawk Studio (from $200). Steven Graziano from Dennis Bartolomei is a master stylist with 18 years of experience (from $90). Karina Spence at Toujours is trained in the Deva cut, a dry-cutting technique used on tight curls (from $75).
