Takamichi’s Guy Code
Stylist Takamichi Saeki has been dispensing precisely disheveled, geometrically structured cuts since opening his first salon on a sleepy block in the East Village in 1999. Since then his address has changed twice—first to the cobblestoned Great Jones Street, and now to a well-trodden stretch of the Bowery. As of this week, Saeki has more newness to boast about: The salon is adding, after hearing the pleas of many a male client, a guy-focused bespoke styling bar. Akin to a dry bar concept for dudes, men can come in pre-important meeting or -hot date for a mini style or wash—all of it using Davines’ More Inside collection exclusively. And since men haven’t historically been known to labor over their coifs for long lengths of time, all of the services are lightning-fast: 25 minutes or less. A concept that any dude can get behind.
