Girl’s Night Out? Big date? Wedding (where you’ll see your ex & need to look hot)? Whatever you’re planning, I’m betting a fab blowout & mani are on the top of your beauty checklist–but who has the time to prep all day? Certainly not busy urban dwellers, which is why NYC’s new Fix Beauty Bar is such a genius idea. Their concept: Simultaneous blowouts and manicures.
I had the opportunity to check it out & was super-impressed by the well-edited beauty space owned by friends Karol Markowicz & Michelle Breskin. From the chic white interior, gorgeous chandelier, stellar wall of polishes (I chose a nude-rose Chanel), luxe tools like the Sedu ICON Prive blowdryer (retails for $750 & is top of the line), & amazing marble-topped bar with hand dryers built into it (once again, genius) so you don’t have to move from one station to the next, the salon is thoughtfully planned out & pretty much a beauty lover’s dream come true! Flip though their lookbook & pick one of the blowout options (co-owner Markowicz told me the ‘Kim’ is one of the most popular, inspired by the Kardashians’ lush, flowing locks), sit back and sip on wine, coffee or lemon-infused water as your mani & blowout are expertly executed at once. You’ll be out the door, looking gorgeous, in about an hour!
Plus, on Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays through the end of October, they’re raising money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation by giving you and a friend free manicures or 20% off gel manicures when you come in together for blowouts. Just use offer code findacure when you call for an appointment (212-744-0800) and 10% of your total will go to BCRF. Follow them @FixBeautyBar or visit FixBeautyBar.com.
