Have you ever been to a salon that made your jaw drop? I'm not talking about a gorgeous spa. I mean a real, dare I say, beauty parlor. Recently, I paid a visit to Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa at the Loews Regency Hotel in midtown NYC to check out what all of the hype about his new Park Ave. location is about. Let's just say it's a NYers dream as Julien Farel's well thought out menu of services is for the busy, woman who doesn't know how not to multitask.
Located on the second floor of the Loews Regency Hotel, services begin with cut and color, include manicures and pedicures and also delve into spa. It is a one-stop-shop that understands the sophisticated Manhattan woman and her needs. One 10,000 sq. ft. room holds 32 unique pod-like hair stations, so you're given as much individual attention as possible in what is normally a busy salon.
Rooms are dedicated to nails, facials and massages, but the beauty of the menu is that all services can be done at the same time. With "Power Hour," you choose three services of your choice. Example: Facial, manicure, pedicure ($230). Yes, there's even a facial bed that accommodates your feet for a simultaneous pedicure. And of course, there's a mens section.
One of my favorite things besides the well curated menu was the David LaChappelle artwork hanging in the hallways. In NYC? Check out the Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa located at 540 Park Ave.
