About Us

La'Kres is a more than a hair salon; we're a warm and welcoming experience that will change the way you look at taking care of your hair.

Karina and Steve founded La'Kres after years of styling hair in NYC, making their dream a reality and giving clients the salon they deserve.

At La'Kres, we believe in the best: hand-picked products that will leave you with rich, full texture, color and style as well as a team of exclusively senior stylists who stay on the cutting edge of the salon industry.

We also believe that a hair studio should be more than just another stop on your to-do list, but a place that you feel welcome and are able to relax and escape from the daily grind, all while getting the pampering that you have earned for yourself and your hair.

Our commitment to quality extends beyond your trips into the salon as we only sell premium hair care products that we have used and approved ourselves. We are also committed to treating the environment with the same care that we treat hair, cutting our power output by over half since the salon's inception, through energy efficient practices.

The next time you need to get your hair styled, don't settle for mediocre products and stylists who treat you like just another customer. Come experience La'Kres, the salon you deserve.
