Because Manhattan's Bond Street shall want for nothing, the tiny cobblestone block can now add chichi hair salon to its list of luxury amenities. Downtown hair maven Eva Scrivo has opened her second full-service salon at 50 Bond (next to the upcoming residential development 48 Bond—you know, the one with the lap pool visible from the sidewalk). The salon, situated between Bowery and Lafayette Street, opened today, and the 3,000-square-foot space is a stunner. High ceilings are complemented by mid-century antique chandeliers and glossy wood floors, and when you first swing through the doors, rows and rows of hair products are positioned neatly along the shelves. Eva Scrivo carries a full assortment of hair products from Kerastase and Bumble and Bumble, hairbrushes from Denman and famous London brand Mason Pearson and their own hairband line ($45-110).
A giant makeup station, with Shu Uemera, Yonka and Lippmann Collection products, sits beyond the hair section; towards the rear of the building lies the hair salon itself, a massive chamber with more than 16 stations for cuts, blowouts, extensions and Japanese straightening. Prices are typical for a high-end salon: cuts start at $90 and top out at $350 (that's for a session with Eva herself). Makeup applications, instruction lessons, and manicures are currently available, and if you need more pampering, pedis, facials, acupuncture, reflexology, and massage will be offered soon.
