When hair removal salon Completely Bare reintroduced itself as Spruce & Bond at the end of last year—prompting a debate about the state of pubic hair—it promised a bunch of new New York City salons, and it's already delivering. The brand is set to open its fourth Manhattan location at 150 Amsterdam Avenue this spring, right next to Flywheel Sports, with four rooms for waxing and laser hair removal and two Browlab stations. It joins fellow hair professionals Drybar, who also just expanded into the neighborhood.
