New York's 38 Best Beauty Stores, Spas, and Salons

View as Map

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Beauty in New York ranges from tiny no-name nail salons to palaces of hair care that charge thousands of dollars and get name-checked on Gossip Girl. Given the variety, diversity, and sheer number of salons and shops, it's probably impossible to pull together a purely objective list of the the 38 best beauty destinations in the city. But that's not going to stop us from trying.

Below, you'll find a mapped guide to New York's most widely respected, most commonly name-checked, most frequently Yelp-recommended beauty spots. We know it's not comprehensive, but if you're trying to make sense of the local beauty landscape, it's certainly a start. Did we miss your favorite? Do you have a comment on any of the inclusions? Let us know in the comments, or send us an email at tips@racked.com.

Want to know where else to shop? Presenting the first-ever Racked Beauty 38 from our sister sites Los Angeles, Chicago, and Racked National.
