Eva Scrivo SalonJune 1, 2009 By: Lotus Abrams American Salon
The newest beauty destination in Manhattan's Meatpacking District, known for its hip nightclubs, trendy eateries and cutting-edge fashion boutiques, is Eva Scrivo's eponymous salon, complementing her flagship location on Bond Street. The 5,000-square-foot second-floor loft space, located in a former warehouse, boasts beamed ceilings, original columns, espresso-stained oak floors and vintage Venini chandeliers. The waiting area, separated from the styling space by chain mail curtains, features custom suede benches and a Macassar ebony and marble front desk. Despite the large size, the salon feels intimate, thanks to several private areas, including a pedicure room and a 750-square-foot lounge with a movie screen and projector. "It's a unique concept for a salon," Scrivo says. "The lounge can be used for private events, bridal parties or other groups getting services at the salon. It's also offered to our VIP clients at no extra charge for their own events." Services include cuts, color, styling, extensions, thermal reconditioning, manicures and pedicures, eyebrow shaping and makeup, while the retail boutique is stocked with haircare and skincare products, in addition to Scrivo's own line of fashion accessories. "Clients absolutely love it," Scrivo says. "The most common sentiment expressed so far is how beautiful, private and unique the space feels." —L.A.
