Ensuring that local residents and visitors to the Meatpacking District will look their best, several full-service salons and spas in the area offer beauty treatments. Since 2004, Bumble and bumble has been serving a varied client base with its edgy "razor cut" hairstyling method. The salon's stylists craft cuts, curls, colors and blowouts. If you're looking for a taste of life in Barbie's Dream House, visit Michael Angelo's Wonderland Beauty Parlor, where cuts, styling and coloring for hair, as well as makeup application, manicures and brow shaping, are all on the menu.
The Gansevoort Hotel hosts both beauty and wellness venues: the cozy hair salon Prieto Select offers stellar cuts and blowouts, while Exhale focuses on nurturing a healthy body and mind. Choose from spa therapies such as facials, massages and acupuncture; if you're up for sweating, try a yoga or core class. For a more intimate experience, head to Gina-Le Salon, which has just four seats in which to perform its hair, nail and grooming services.
