Get a simultaneous blowout and manicure
There’s nothing we New Yorkers love more (or do better) than multitasking. But getting a blowout, manicure and pedicure all at once? Yes, it’s finally possible, thanks to the just-launched Fix Beauty Bar on the Upper East Side.
We stopped by the sweet white-and-lavender salon, admittedly a little skeptical of how precise this whole process could be. Following a thorough wash with Redken products, we sat at the dual-stylist station to pour over the menu of hairstyles ($40) but ultimately went with the customizable option in a simple, sleek look with just enough volume and bounce.
As the stylist revved up the 100 mph hairdryer behind us, a manicurist sat in front and gave us a surprisingly detailed treatment ($15). We opted for Chanel’s “Suspicious” shade, but it was honestly hard to choose from a variety of polishes that you don’t normally see at your quick-service nail salon--like YSL, Nars and Tom Ford. (However, it does also carry manicure mainstay Essie.)
In and out in under an hour, our simultaneous treatments couldn’t have gone better. The only thing we could have used was an extra hand to sip our glass of wine.
