With some of these smaller shops setting up new businesses, it's hard to tell if something interesting will showing up as was the case of 2220 FDB/8th Avenue and 120th Street: LINK. The question mark paper on the window was up for at least a year and it looked like a dead end retail opportunity until activity picked up in the last couple of months.
It now appears that a boutique salon is arriving on this corner of South Harlem. Walking by recently, a sign announcing the arrival of Bibi could be seen out front of the formerly questionable storefront. It actually makes a whole lot of sense since there aren't any contemporary hair salons for this part of town and the service is a definite must have. A website is currently up already for those interested: www.BibiSalonNYC.com
Bit fancy eh. Where's the option for the good old short back and sides?!ReplyDelete
Chris: I'm not sure where you're at exactly, but you might try Reamir's at 98th & Broadway (which is also close to the 2/3 if that helps).ReplyDelete
There's also a local shop near 110th on Amsterdam that has worked out okay for me in the past.
Victor's, Lenox between 117/118.ReplyDelete
Actually, no matter what you request you get a fade. I've learned to embrace that AND the nonstop very loud Spanish reggae.
I'm sure this will be an unpopular opinion but it's nice to see a white face hiding out in the middle there. Wonder if they'll do white hair. There's nowhere in the area that does.ReplyDelete
Nothing wrong with liking to see a white face. What I, and probably others, have issues with is when advertising for upscale, large ticket items such as condos show nothing BUT white faces.ReplyDelete
On the subject of hair, I recommend the Chris Rock movie, ‘Good Hair’ recently shown at St. Nicholas Park, Chris Rock introduces Al Sharpton at the Dalai Lama of Relaxer.ReplyDelete
