Yarok Beauty Kitchen
39 West 19 Street suite 610
New York, NY 10011
Located in the heart of New York City's Chelsea neighborhood, YAROK Beauty Kitchen is an intimate salon dedicated to the YAROK lifestyle of organic, sustainable beauty. Here, Mordechai Alvow, an essential oils chef of sorts, has built a creative and calming environment for his top notch haircuts, organic hair coloring and exclusive YAROK sensory hair and scalp treatments.
This is not a hectic salon with a revolving door of stylists or rushed appointments. At YAROK Beauty Kitchen you have front row access to the magic that comes from blending century old ingredients with modern technology. Watch Mordechai as he custom blends your hair color in glass beakers or as he tailors an aromatic, essential oils treatment just for your particular hair needs.
Forget being assaulted with noxious fumes, this three-chair salon was created as a sensorial antidote to chemically fueled salons. Remember that all of the products used during your visit have been tested for results but also kindness to your senses and the earth.
To make an appointment to see the stylists and Mordechai or to schedule a YAROK sensory hair and scalp treatment call 212.876.4293
