5 East 57th Street, NYC

Words/Images Judith Ecochard

Just steps (and two floors up) from the glam, bustling intersection of Manhattan's Fifth Avenue and 57th Street---is the light filled and calm,  Roy Teeluck Salon.

Unlike some busy spaces, run by celeb stylists-- devoted to one's luscious lucks in this high profile neighborhood---

Teelock's clean space is just the right size, IMHO...with the right balance of personalized attention, discretion (this is a destination for the high profile types-though mums the word), range of services offered (a plush nook for nails, hair cuts and treatments, color, Bridal...),

And well trained staff ----key for any business in the beauty biz.

The gracious London born, Roy Teeluck himself was all smiles when we chatted a bit at an editor's preview. 

Schooled in his home town, Teeluck quickly crossed the channel and earned his stripes in Paris working for the 'names' of the day like Jacques Dessage, and meeting future comrade-in-arms,  Frederic Fekkai...who in turned, lured the "architect of scissors" to sunny Beverly Hills to launch ventures there.

NYC then beckoned ---and for many years Teeluck's salon was just down the block. 

Now, the airy locale, a premium L'Oreal Professionnel salon-featuring the ammonia-free INOA® color system, 

----also offers the popular Keratin Protein Treatment- "that doesn't kill their hair but wipes out unwanted frizz...." (and naturally fades out in about three months).

Naturally we asked about Spring/Summer 2011 hair styles...

Think: "Edgy. An arty look...with 'odd' pieces cuts in the front----framing with bangs or a bang effect with a side movement."

Sure beats stuffing our flattened up hair under chunky winter hats.

Prices: Cuts $100+ with Stylists, $350 with Roy Teeluck, Color: $120+ and up...
