Do you covet the hairstyle of your favorite celebrity? Then why not get your hair cut and colored at the celebrity-frequented New York City (NYC) hair salons where the stars themselves go?
Manhattan is home to a slate of celebrity hairstylists who regularly make supermodels, movie stars, and magazine models look gorgeous. Sure, you'll pay a fortune for a star-quality hairstyle, but you might spot Uma Thurman, Julia Roberts, Eddie Vedder, or Jake Gyllenhaal in the chair beside you. Read on for the four top celebrity hair salons in NYC.
Want a rock star haircut? Visit April Barton's NoHo salon, tucked away unassumingly behind a neighborhood optic shop. Suite 303's clients have included Elvis Costello, Eddie Vedder, Adrien Brody, Jake Gyllenhaal, and the boys from Oasis and U2.
Note that haircuts are by appointment only.
Sally Hershberger Salon
Sally is as famous for her pricey haircuts (that can run up to $1,000 per cut) as she is for her celebrity clients (the likes of which include Meg Ryan and Michelle Pfeiffer). You'll find Sally at one of several salons in NYC.
While you're at it, splurge on her luxury hair care line Sally Hershberger 24K, which infuses hair products with, what else? An elixir of 24K pure gold. Talk about some serious shine.

Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger
Sharon Dorram is a "colorist to the stars," and is the head colorist at the Sally Hershberger Upper East Side salon. She is the color genius behind the shining tresses of Rénee Zellweger, Uma Thurman, Kate Winslet, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, and other stars.
She's hard to book and operates by appointment only, but if you can snag a slot (and can afford her), you're near-guaranteed the color of your dreams.
John Barrett Salon
Irishman John Barret's salon, on the penthouse floor of Bergdorf Goodman (formerly the famous Goodman apartment), offers views of Central Park and lots of pampering. Barrett's clients include plenty of "Bergdorf Blondes," as well as celebrities.
Be prepared to wait months for an appointment and to pay big bucks, but you'll get customization and attention like no other from his chair.
