  • Celebrity Hairstylist

    As a celebrity hairstylist, Arsen Gurgov knows how to give celebrity clients a haircut that will make them stand out and how to give other clients haircuts that will make them feel like celebrities. Many people often wonder what it means to be a celebrity hairstylist. They ask us, “What makes stars want to flock to a certain stylist or salon?” And “What sets a celebrity hair salon apart?” Well, read on because we’re here to dish (at least a little).

    Celeb Stylists

    As one of the top celebrity hairstylists in NYC, Arsen not only works with a long list of celebrity clientele, but his work has also been featured in a long list of publications, including The New York Times; The Wall Street Journal; Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar; W; Glamour; and InStyle; on TV shows, including Today; The View; and Good Morning America; and in movies directed by Spike Lee, Sidney Lumet, and Todd Solondz. Arsen’s experience as a stylist in so many different parts of the industry is one of the things that sets him apart as a celeb stylist. Movie stars and other household names come to Arsen because they know he knows the industry, and they know he will give their locks a freshness that will help them stand out from the hordes of other stars in New York City. They will walk out of the salon looking like trendsetters, ready to take the city (or their next premiere, or next book signing, or other public appearance, etc.) by storm. Some of his celebrity clientele include (but aren’t limited to) Emmy Rossum, Hoda Kotb, Kathie Lee Gifford, Courtney Love, Sandra Lee, and hockey great Brendan Shanahan.

    Celebrity Hair Salons in NYC

    Any celebrity hair stylist in NYC will tell you that perhaps the biggest differentiating factor between a celebrity stylist and a regular stylist (beyond the styling itself) is the level of service and discretion provided by the salon. A celebrity hair salon must be a place where even a megastar can relax and let their hair down (both literally and metaphorically). Famous hair stylists are famous for two reasons: the haircuts they give and the way they make their clients feel during those cuts.
    Celebrity hair salons achieve superior levels of service by making themselves as much a part of the hospitality industry, as they are a part of the beauty industry. This means being ready to cater to clients’ wants and needs, whether that be adding services at the last minute, ordering food, or even playing a specific type of music during their appointment. Of course, this level of service and hospitality must extend to every client – not just the ones who are household names.
    At the Arsen Gurgov Salon, we have taken our celeb salon status one step further by creating various VIP areas throughout the salon for optimal privacy. In fact, the entire salon was designed for every client to feel pampered in privacy – not rushed or cramped between other salon-goers.

    Top Celebrity Hairstyles We Love

    Just as much as we help our VIPs discover new looks, we often take inspiration from movie stars, newsmakers, and other big names, who are rocking fun, exciting hairdos. Some fresh, exciting celebrity hairstyles we are loving at the moment are:

      • Kate Hudson’s Buzz Cut: Now that is a bold hairstyle! We love seeing a classic beauty like Kate Hudson make a big style statement that shows she’s not afraid to take risks. Hudson’s buzz adds a layer of edginess to her usually laid-back, California vibe. (And Hudson isn’t the only megastar rocking a buzz cut these days. Other celebs making the big cut include Cara Delevingne, Halsey, and Danai Gurira.)
      • Khloe Kardashian’s Short, Beachy Waves: Getting rid of some length and adding loose, beachy curls has done wonders for Kardashian’s look. She’s looking fine, fresh, and fierce – not to mention years younger.
      • Taraji P. Henson’s Curly, Cropped Cut: While Henson always looks fierce, she is bringing particular star power with her new look: a curly, cropped ‘do with a short buzz around the sides and back. We’re loving this look for all seasons, but especially the end of summer, when the days are hot and you want an exciting, new look to transition you into the fall.

    Of course, you don’t need to have years of fame under your belt to be treated like a superstar. At the Arsen Gurgov Salon, we want all of our clients to feel like VIPs. Tell us what you are looking for as part of your service, and we will work to make it happen. And we promise you will walk away with tresses so fierce, movie stars will be stopping you on the street, asking what hairdresser did your hair.
