New York: Haircuts 149 5th Ave. 2nd Floor 212-253-2100 Regular price: $105 and up InStyle deal: $84 and up Book an AppointmentButterfly Studio Salon Web Exclusive InStyle Best Beauty Buy Pick Always bustling and sleek, this Flatiron salon is gracefully presided over by cut-and-blowout maven Kattia Solano. Along with slicing a lob like nobody’s business, Solano and her devoted assistants obsess over your texture’s styling possibilities. For our tester, this meant opening up her mind to the idea that her fine and straight hair could be coaxed into a wave with nary a hot tool. The right cut was key, and Solano delivered it by snipping into first wet then dry hair, then focused on texturizing ends. The grand finale? Solano, the salon owner, and her assistant showed our tester how to twist-and-clip up partially damp hair to create a headful of loose waves. A little time and a few Oribe styling products later, Voila! There were waves where a “perennial razored bob” used to be.
