Best Salon for Hair Cuts
Readers, upstate: Pagavé Salon (1601 Concord Pike, Suite 35, Wilmington, 765-0134)

Readers, downstate: JK Tangles Salon (1151 E. Lebanon Road, Dover, 698-1006)

Critics, upstate: Sherif Zaki Salon is backed by the Goldwell Academy, a respected institution that teaches integrated approaches to hairdressing. Owner and master stylist Sherif Zaki, who studied extensively at L’Oréal Paris and Vidal Sassoon Academy, among other venerable places, shares his knowledge with stylists who range in age from 20 to 60. All also receive continuous training with the Redken Exchange. “At Sherif Zaki Salon, our stylists are driven by their creative energy and their passion for the artistry of the beauty industry,” says co-owner Emon Zaki. “With our strong communication skills and visual creativity, we strive to deliver to our guests a result beyond their expectations.” (4001 Kennett Pike, Suite 232, Wilmington, 652-4902)

Critics, downstate: Bling Salon & Spa co-owners Jess Blakeman and T.J. Seeney insist that their stylists attend educational seminars at least once a month. Instructors hail from Tigi, the company responsible for brands such as Bed Head, Catwalk, S Factor and Hardcore. Seeney says Hollywood is dictating cuts more than ever before, which explains why the Victoria Beckham bob is hot for women and the short, funky styles of Matt Damon or George Clooney appeal to men.
