SALON STYLE: Pierre Michel has become serious about hair extensions. Last week, the tony Midtown salon recruited Piny, the West Coast hair extension guru, to train Michel and four stylists on his signature hair-extension method. Piny, best known for his dramatic tress enhancements on rock stars, movie stars and Playboy models, focuses his craft on customizing a client’s hair texture with human hair, which he imports from Scandinavia, Russia and Yugoslavia. All hair extensions used for treatments at Pierre Michel will be custom blended and manufactured at Piny of Beverly Hills. Piny will continue training Pierre Michel staff every six to seven weeks, at which time he will be available for special consultations. Prices for hair extension services at Pierre Michel range from $1,500 to $4,000.
