Unfortunately, all the salons in the NYC area that are good cost an arm and a leg. That's probably why you haven't gotten other responses yet.
Check out the salons section on top for reviews on salons in NYC. I personally like A. Dickey owner of Hair Rules salon, but it isn't cheap. I get a senior citizen discount so I can afford it.
Best of luck with your search!
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high. Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
