Akiko Hair & Nail

Akiko Hair & Nail

  • Price band: 3/4

Japanese hairstylist Akiko Sugiyama trained at Toni & Guy in London before moving to New York in 2008, working at Lower East Side salons such as Le Salon d’Art and Ringo. She ventures out on her own to open this four-chair balcony space, situated inside artisan bazaar the Market NYC. Despite its unorthodox location, the salon is capable of executing services beyond basic haircuts (women $75, men $55) and blowouts ($40–$55): An enclosed washing station down a flight of stairs allows for color ($85–$200), highlights ($100–$150) and keratin treatments ($220–$350). But the real draw is nail art, performed using Gelish and Gelaxy gel polish by two technicians from Tokyo. A single-color manicure ($35) serves as the ideal base for hand-painted designs such as flowers (add $20), camouflage (add $20), half-moons (add $10) and intricate Aztec prints (add $30). The sky’s the limit when it comes to custom work, but past themed creations include a Galaxy manicure ($50) and one depicting New York icons ($60). Regardless of what you get, you can expect it to last for up to two weeks. The Market NYC, 159 Bleecker St between Sullivan and Thompson Sts (917-284-7449, akikostudionyc.com). Wed, Thu, Sun noon–8pm; Fri noon–9pm; Sat 11am–9pm.

The Apartment

As its name suggests, the 3,500-square-foot boutique is constructed to look like the kind of minimalist, texture-rich apartment that only the most stylish and deep-pocketed New Yorkers would call home. Thumb through a massive walk-in closet full of ready-to-wear clothing ($60–$2,600) and accessories ($530–$1,040), including Vince cashmere-blend sweaters ($345), Protagonist knit tops ($290) and Linda Farrow vintage-inspired shades ($530). Handcrafted bath and beauty products, such as Mountain Ocean coconut soap ($6) and Rodin lip balm ($30), are artfully arranged amid a rotating selection of clean-lined furniture and home goods ($12–$20,000). Furnish your abode with Andrianna Shamaris petrified-wood footstools ($3,980) and René Herbst French vintage chairs (two for $6,500). 76 Greene St at Spring St, third floor (646-678-4908, theline.com).

Bed of Nails

  • Price band: 2/4

At just 25 years old, Candice Idehen has already seen her nail designs grace the covers of Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue Paris, worked backstage at runway shows for Louis Vuitton and Calvin Klein, and earned boldfaced-name clients such as Jessica Alba and Estelle. The prodigy opens her first salon, which makes getting a basic manicure ($20) or pedicure ($32) an indulgent experience. The exposed-brick space features modern chandeliers, a private back room for waxing services ($10–$60), six mirrored manicure stations and half a dozen thronelike velvet pedicure chairs with freestanding basins for a more sanitary foot soak. Idehen stocks polishes only from brands she’s tested and approved herself, including Chanel, Deborah Lippmann, Tom Ford, Essie and Marc Jacobs. You can book an appointment online for souped-up services, such as the Can’t Touch This deluxe manicure ($30) featuring a hot-oil hand wrap and the Make Them Kissable signature pedicure ($60), which includes a rose-infused milk bath, seasonal scrub and paraffin wrap. There’s even a so-called menicure ($40) that treats guys to a deep hand exfoliation. Long-lasting formulas from Bio Sculpture, Young Nails, and Artistic Colors are used for gel manicures ($40) and pedicures ($50), and serve as an ideal base for nail-art add-ons, ranging from Swarovski crystals ($5–$70) and ombré glitter ($20) to freehand designs ($5–$100). 2272 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd (Seventh Ave) between 133rd and 134th Sts (212-694-2200, bedofnailsnyc.com).
