Model, mom, and entrepreneur Kristen Taekman from Real Housewives of New York shares her go-to list for beauty picks throughout the city. 

  • The first stop on Kristen's list? Broome and Beauty salon, located in the heart of Manhattan's Soho, where people are inspired every day by the fantastic street styles and passersby. Founded by renowned stylists Jeff Chastain and Liam Carey, this salon is the perfect pit-stop for a full-day of world-class Soho shopping. Ask for a trendy new hairdo to compliment your look! 
  • Craving red-carpet-ready hair but stuck with a college girl's budget? Pop into Drybar for a quick yet fabulous blowout by expert stylists. Instead of offering cuts or color services, Drybar focusing their stylists' energy on perfecting the blow-drying craft. With blowouts and washes starting at $40 and dozens locations around the US, you can be sure you're getting your money's worth. 
  • If you're in the big apple, a solid manicure is a must. Pattie Yankee, an award-winning nail artist that has lacquered the fingers of Rachel Ray, Katy Perry, and Pink, runs her own salon in Long Island and along with wonderful freelance work you can catch her in Ricky’s NYC of Soho at the Pattie Yankee Mani Bar with the latest and greatest nail art.
  • Pilates is all the rage right now, currently making waves as the exercise fitness enthusiasts and models use to get killer abs. At Real Pilates, trainers use resistance bodyweight training routines designed to tone you right up and get your muscles active.
  • For luxury hair and beauty product shopping, look no further than Frederic Fekkai. From high-end and name brand hair care and beauty products to full styling services, this salon is perfect for travellers who want even better pampering than they can get back home. With multiple locations in chic cities from NY to St. Barths, you can be sure you'll walk out of every shop with stellar locks, no matter where in the world you are.
