The Pro: Kevin Mancuso
The Scene: Head way uptown to the pristine garden-level salon in Mancuso's Harlem, New York, townhouse.
The Philosophy: "You can create anything for anyone, but if you don't give them something beautiful and easy, then it doesn't work," says the self-described texture-centric stylist to supermodels of the '90s and now.
Tool of Choice: "There's no such thing as five-minute hair," says Mancuso. "I've been spending a lot of time in Australia. Nexxus Pro-Mend Mousse is my favorite for re-creating a beach-waves texture."
Bonus: Mancuso considers new clients at kevinmancuso.com.
