A favorite among both news and primetime TV personalities – yes, all that hair is touched-up – the Miano Viel Salon and Spa is possibly the best-kept secret in the city that never shuts its mouth. Master stylist Damien Miano and “color genius” (as he has been rightfully dubbed), Louis Viel specialize in enviable, cutting-edge looks that aren’t overly trendy. Their Terme di Saturnia day spa within, run by Russian dermatologist-turned-NY-facialist Alla Katkov, specializes in lymphatic drainage massages and chemical peels. A full-service salon with world-class stylists and colorists, Miano Viel also offers manicures, pedicures, waxing, and body treatments for men and women. Tangible proof the place is a must amongst the international set: Combined, the staff speaks 18 languages.
