Kim's Top Picks #1 of One: Best Hair Stylist & Makeup Artist: New York's Own Lydia Fierro

This is the first in a series I will be doing on my Top Picks.

I've been going to Lydia for over 7 years now. For me the most impressive thing about her is that she really "gets" what I want when I'm there. I believe that her listening skills are the key to her success as a stylist. Lydia's abilities as a colorist are extraordinary. Her attention to detail is unparalleled. She is a true artist and a perfectionist. Her eye is a sharp as it can be - she sees every hair on your head and never settles until she is sure everything is as it should be.

I've asked Lydia to allow me to post her professional bio, which is below. If you are interested in getting in touch with Lydia please email her at or call her directly at 917-363-9618.

Lydia Fierro has been a hair stylist since 1990 and in New York City for 13 years. She has been trained by some of New York’s hairstylists including Mark Garrison, Nick Arrojo, and Rodney Cutler. Always staying on top of the latest trends she attends the Loreal academy for advanced color classes and the Tony and Guy Academy for both cut and color classes.

She currently works at on Madison Ave on the Upper East Side at the Yossi Hair Salon. There she attends to a loyal clientele where she cuts, colors and styles hair. No matter how long you have been a client of Lydia’s she will always takes the time for a full consultation.

She encourages her clients to bring picture of styles they like and carefully listens to their suggestions and concerns.
