Several spas and salons have outposts in the Meatpacking District, including Exhale and Bumble and bumble, so you don't have to look far to look good. Edris Salon dispenses cuts, curls, colors, blowouts and treatments for all types of hair in a third-floor loft. You can also get your nails done, your makeup applied and your eyebrows groomed. Whereas Edris embodies a multicultural aesthetic, Michael Angelo's Wonderland Beauty Parlor espouses the zany side of getting beautiful. Browse neatly ordered rows of makeup, page through art books or play with novelties like a much-more-than-life-size set of stuffed lips beneath a neon sign blinking "Wonderland" in bright pink. In back, extremely attentive stylists, colorists, makeup artists and manicurists work their magic. If you think you've spotted a supermodel or actor getting pretty, you probably have—the clients tend to be boldfaced names.
