This week, three very different pop-up shops will take place in three different neighborhoods, for whatever kind of mood you might just happen be in. For example, if your hair's been deprived of attention lately, head to Poppy on Mott Street for a braid or a cut. If you ripped your Nudie Jeans recently, you can have them repaired in Soho. And if you just need a new piece of jewelry, goddamnit, there's the Chrishabana pop-up shop to scratch that itch.
Pop-Up Hair Salon at Poppy
For one day only, Poppy will host a pop-up hair salon with She Lets Her Hair Down inside its Nolita store. Cuts are $60, and braids are $20—a small price to pay for something they're promising will last a couple of days. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment. Thursday, September 13. 12pm to 8pm. 281 Mott Street
Nudie Jeans Repair! Reuse! Reduce Pop-Up at Bloomingdale's
Nudie jeans are pretty durable, but even the strongest denim can suffer from wear and tear. If yours are looking a little beat up, or if you're in need of an alteration, stop by the Nudie Jeans repair shop at Bloomingdale's in Soho, where the folks behind Denim Therapy will stitch, patch, and sew them right up. Customers can also trade in their old Nudies (that meet the brand's specific requirements) for a free gift. Thursday, September 13 through Sunday, September 16. Daily 2pm—8pm. 504 Broadway
