Haircutter to the stars – as well as CEO’s, industrialists & influencers – extraordinaire, Martial Vivot, has added to his growing empire with the opening of a 2nd location in Manhattan’s West Village/Meatpacking area. The Martial Vivot Salon Pour Hommes Downtown, located at 639 1/2 (we love this address!) Hudson Street, joins it’s uptown counterpart located by the MOMA at 39 West 54th Street.
Vivot has been steadily growing his empire in the 9 years since his original salon opened its doors to the waiting locks of New York’s well-healed set. In just over a year, he’s launched an entire range of grooming products that include a Shampoo & Conditioner, as well as a Beard & Face Oil, a Creme, Gel & Paste. Recently, he added a range of men’s grooming accessories that are every bit as storied & special as the man himself. Now, with the opening of his downtown outpost, it’s clear he’s a grooming force with which to be reckoned!
The acclaimed stylist prefers he moniker ‘Garçons Coiffeurs’, French for men’s hairstylist, over any of the other titles commonly used when describing him. Vivot, is partnering with Jerome Obry, a senior stylist at the flagship salon of 5 years, in the new venture. Obry, is a rare men’s only stylist who hails from France. He made his name in the industry for over two decades in Europe before coming to America & joining the Martial Vivot team.
“We’re very excited about our expansion to the new salon this fall,” says Martial Vivot. “We’re not only grateful for the success of the Midtown location but thrilled to make our services more accessible to the new downtown clientele. The Village is the home to so many of my clients & represents a perfect way to bring the vibe & culture of our salon to my audience both existing & yet to come.”
Much like its uptown counterpart, the new location will have six semi-private stations with secluded sinks in the 1100 ft2 space. Martial & his team strongly believe in maximum privacy, creating an environment where the team moves around the client, not the other way around. The Salon Pour Hommes on Hudson Street will offer the same services as the Midtown location from an expert team of ‘Garçons Coiffeurs’ including haircuts, color, grooming, shaves & beard trims, wedding services for the groom, on-camera “Green Room” services & face touch ups. New at this location, however, is a new steam shave service & a unique water system which removes all chlorine from the water when clients get their hair washed.
We’ve visited both locations of Martial Vivot Salon Pour Hommes & can state without reservation that the experience Martial & his team create is unlike any other men’s salon we’ve ever seen, or heard about for that matter. Such luxurious experiences are normally designed to be experienced by women. It’s rare to find such a pampering experience for men. The prices are higher than most, but luxury comes at a price & this luxury is worth every penny!
