Your unforgettable experience at Fix Beauty Bar starts upon your arrival as you are warmly greeted by the staff. Making your way through the corridor adorned with calm purple hues and funky vintage blow-dryers, you are immediately offered a choice of beverage – flavored waters, top of the line coffees, and exquisite wines.
As you park on the large, plush white couch a few feet away, you are encouraged to pick from an array of magazines – spanning from The Economist to Us Weekly – as your beverage and snack is brought to you. Next, you are escorted through the hallway into the main room reminiscent of youthful glamour.
“We're not a salon, exactly. We call ourselves a blowout and nail bar. We only do blowouts, manicures and pedicures. No cuts, color, waxing, eyebrow threading, nothing else. We focus on those two things and do them well. We provide a luxurious in a beautiful space with exceptional service.” – Michelle Breskin
Walking around the beautiful white marble manicure station, you face a large wall filled with enough nail polish colors to make any girl giddy. Exclusive colors from collections such as Tom Ford, Dior, Chanel, OPI, and Nars are at your complete disposal.
