Downtown hair legend Nick Arrojo will open his second and third studios this spring, WWD reports, fourteen years after opening his first salon and academy in Soho. The 32-chair, 3,300-square-foot Williamsburg salon will be the first to open in April, while a 16-chair, 12,500-square-foot space will open in Tribeca in May (the stylist has yet to reveal the exact addresses). The new Manhattan location will also act as a training center.
"For me, the most emerging market in New York City is Williamsburg," Arrojo told the paper. "As far as Tribeca is concerned, we're expanding our education component because we're an education culture company." So even if you don't make into an Arrojo salon in the coming months, chances are your hair will come in contact with a stylist who's been blessed with his training.
Update: The Tribeca Citizen points out that the salon will be located at 200 Hudson Street.
