Seen & Heard: Nexxus Hair Salon on N. Moore

••• I looks like 39 N. Moore is indeed the first salon under the Nexxus haircare brand.

Nexxus New York Salon Care NMooreOwned by Unilever, Nexxus is a mass-market brand, so this (expensive) location must be an attempt to take it upscale. The type on the right is, um, poetic:

A purposeful craft
A journey that will restore you
Hair fluidly beautiful
Responsive, seamless, unrivaled
Moving with effortless ease

The text on the door mentions Kevin Mancuso, a hair big shot with a salon on Fifth Ave. in Midtown. Clearly, Nexxus wants some of his glamour to rub off.

I’ve had some delicious ones from Baked—especially one with maple. 2) Possibly, I’ve had too much in general at Baked. Yesterday, a staffer asked if I live in the building….

I’m sure it’ll look great, but I always loved how Mondo Cane’s huge picture window was angled for the perfect view of Staple Street.
