The impending holiday season calls for a revamping of the self, both physically and spiritually. We chat with four experts about what we need to do with our hair this season.
As skin tones vary from season to season, it’s essential to get a fresh cut and color every few months. “It’s [also] really important to protect your hair from the harshness of winter by conditioning it regularly,” says Salon Vanity owner Edmondo Blando. “I highly recommend coming in for our Kerastase Luxury of Time Ritual treatment [which] leaves hair smooth, without frizz, and cuts down blow dry time drastically.” The process ($75 per session) lasts approximately 10-20 shampoos. 1701 Walnut St., 215-925-2211
Located in the historic Italian Market, Laurentius Salon offers an array of services for permanent and semi-permanent styles. “In our salon we always customize our color services to what our clients are looking for and what will be best for them,” says owner Laurentius Purnama, mentioning highlights and ombre treatments as some of the offered services. 815 Christian St., 215-238-0764

Rescue your hair from static and harsh temperatures with the salon’s organic hair coloring process. “Chemically derived hair color can not only damage your hair but cause severe allergic reactions,” notes Giovanni Mele, owner of Giovanni & Pileggi. “Our customers love the Maraes Organic Color that we offer because it’s an alternative to traditional hair color and allows you to color your hair without worry.” 308 S. 12th St., 215-568-3040
The luxury salon offers updos with a twist at the unique braid bar. Clients are able to choose from an array of braids or ponytail/braid combinations to achieve flawless and fancy holiday hair. Choose between The Audrey, The Adele, The Betty, and many more. 262 South 16th St., 215-569-1515
