W‘s beauty director shares her favorite new salons.

Teddi Cranford

If big hair salons leave you frazzled, Teddi Cranford’s new place is for you. The former right hand to Guido Palau and go-to for cool girls like Jemima Kirke and Pamela Love, Cranford recently opened a lair with just two chairs in New York’s East Village (whiterosecollective.com). “You’re not walking into chaos,” says Cranford. “And you can have a real conversation.” Still, Cranford is thinking big, making the tiny salon available to visiting stylists and colorists, including Kate Schlichter and Sera Sloane, who just debuted their own two-chair salon, Lost Hills, in Los Angeles’s Silver Lake (losthillsla.com). The two stylists will return the favor, offering Cranford a space in which to tend to her West Coast fans. “We want our clients to feel free to go between the shops when they travel,” Sloane says.
