Minor Rose [salon] 1. Located in Gramercy Park, South of Rose Hill


Minor Rose is a head space. Fulfilling a lifelong dream for owner Bradley Scott Rosen, the salon opened in autumn 2020, offering a beacon of hope, normalcy and community. A seat in the comfort of Bradley’s chair is, by turn, a meditation, a philosophical discussion, an experiment, a concert, an indulgence, a moment with a trusted friend.


Bradley Scott Rosen has been cutting hair professionally for 17 years. Also a trained composer of music, with a graduate degree in music composition from UC San Diego, Bradley brings to his craft a critical sense of form and a unique aesthetic at the intersection of punk and classical. Bradley is committed to providing a salon environment at the cutting edge, be it of beauty, sustainability, inclusivity and safety.
