8 Top Hairstylists to Cut Your Hair Before You Die
If money were no object, these are the top hairstylists you'd want to cut your hair. From innovative cutting techniques to ultra-luxurious salons, find out what makes each one such a stand-out
Oscar Blandi owns a pristine, palatial hair salon in New York City. Originally from Italy, he started helping out in his father's salon at age 14 -- in order to meet girls. Now, he works mostly with Upper East Side ladies and celebrities like Kelly Ripa. And he gave Nicole Richie her image-altering bob.
Blandi is a notoriously chatty haircutter, dripping with Italian charm. His cuts generally aren't dramatic; his goal is to make you look (and feel) beautiful. "Each cut requires a unique technique," he says. "But I think most women can pull off a medium length cut -- which sits at or below the shoulders -- and I love to frame the face with long bangs."
If you can't make it to the salon but want the Blandi experience, check out his eponymous product line, which is packed with Italian botanical ingredients.
