Four international hairstylists are the brains behind IGK, which stands for their combined surnames of Izquierdo (two of the stylists are married), Grenia, and Kusero. The Philippe Starck–designed space, with its chevron-pattern wood floors and sleek marble counters, is modern and clean. Most notably, the chairs are supremely comfortable (an important detail given that hair color can take hours). The blowouts are, however, super speedy, and these stylists can cut hair like no other. Booking is essential as the services at IGK are always in demand.

This relatively new space was founded by yogi, certified Jivamukti teacher, and licensed movement therapist Dawn B. Feinberg. There's a class here for everyone. You can sign up for the signature flow (think creative sequencing, chanting, and meditating), the convenient forty-five-minute offering that still packs in a workout, or the all-levels Sweet & Sweaty, which is a slower-paced but aptly named class. There is a class for littles, plus a Mysore Ashtanga practice, which takes place in a quiet room with individual instruction.
