Hero Product

“Who: Takamichi Saeki

Where: Takamichi Hair; 263 Bowery; (212) 420-7979


This airy, light-filled, 2,000-square-foot loft on Bowery is like an art gallery – on display are pieces by Santi Moix and Kat Kohl, pals of Saeki, a former gallerist himself – and hip salon rolled in one. As with every artist, Saeki prioritizes “shape and form,” and enlists a signature technique that “allows hair to grow into the cut.” His work is refined, yet understated and unstudied – so you’ll look sharp for weeks to come.”
