  • Haircut

    At Arsen Gurgov Salon, we believe that a haircut can affect not just your physical appearance, but also your emotional state and life attitude. We always want you to walk out of the salon looking and feeling your best, which is why we focus so intently on your hair health and hair beauty every day, not just on the days you get to pamper yourself with a coiffure.

    1. Best Haircut NYC

    Even if you get the best haircut in NYC, it’s important to know how to keep your hair healthy day-to-day, so the cut lasts. But there are so many tips and tricks for hair out there that it’s hard to know what to listen to. We’ve been in this business for a long time, so here are four of the biggest hair myths people ask us about, and our answers for you.

    Myth 1: You should cut your hair every six weeks.

    • There are so many types of hair cuts, so it should be no surprise that the time between salon visits should depend on the type of hairstyle you have. If you are rocking a shorter coif, then you might need to get your hair cut more often (less hair means changes in length or texture stand out sooner). But if you have longer hair, you can often wait anywhere from 8-12 weeks between cuts. If you aren’t sure whether it’s time to cut your hair, you can always go in for a consult. The best NYC stylists will be honest with you about whether it’s time for a trim, or whether you should wait it out a little bit longer.

    2. Hot Scissors Haircut

    • Women come to us all the time and ask, “How do I get rid of split ends without having to cut my hair short?” At Arsen Gurgov Salon, we don’t want you to have to sacrifice length in order to keep your hair looking and feeling healthy. This is why Arsen worked to develop and master a technique called “hot scissors,” to conquer split ends once and for all.
    • Hot scissors is a unique, specialized treatment that uses heated scissors to eliminate split ends. During the treatment, Arsen uses a pair of electric scissors that heat up to 310 degrees. Whereas with a normal haircut, the cuticle remains open, with hot scissors, the heat from the blades seals the hair’s cuticles, preventing split ends from developing.
    • This treatment is especially helpful for people with wavy, frizzy, or ringlet hair – because it will ensure your hair stays bouncy and light for longer.
    • Usually, following a normal haircut, men and women have a period of full, beautiful tresses, followed by a period of lifeless, wispy strands, as the hair grows out. But following a haircut using the hot scissors method, hair can grow into a long, strong mane, without the ends beginning to crack and divide.
