Our Philosophy

We are

Since the summer of 2004, we have been your neighbor behind the frosted glass at 6 Spring Street in Soho. Ours is a small, intimate salon of just three chairs where Master Stylist Kevin Woon, Master Colorist MichaelAnthony and Stylist Katsumi Matsuo work their magic for New Yorkers in the know.

The businessperson, the student, the entrepreneur and the celebrity—all find an oasis of relaxation behind our frosted glass façade. We preserve their privacy and anonymity, creating for them on oasis of comfort, relaxation and total professionalism. At WOON, everyone receives the attention of experts—with all the ease and warmth of a visit with good friends.

Over the years we have built a vibrant and loyal clientele strictly upon reputation: one cut, one color, one exceptional experience at a time. Our many positive reviews in media ranging from New York magazine to Yelp online reflect our commitment to the “change is good” philosophy.

Our Philosophy

is good.

We believe not only in the transformation we create for our clients, but also in departing from what is often expected from the designer salon experience.

Gone are the ego-driven stylists, impersonal treatment and unsatisfying service of the typical salon. Instead, the quality and professionalism that has distinguished us from the beginning—and keeps us on the cutting edge of the fashion and entertainment industries worldwide—will always find a very personal expression here, perfectly in tune with our clients’ needs.

We bring harmony, beauty and innovation to our work in an intimate environment full of creativity and passion. We believe this is the future, not just for New York salons, but for salons everywhere.

WOON – your neighborhood salon, open to the world.
