September 8th 2017

Between a show and an after party, you are looking for the best addresses to get your hair done, makeup and change nail art; FAB offers you the best addresses in New York.

The Drybar

For a fast pick-me-up between two shows, Blow is the spot for a shampoo, glass of bubbly, and a million dollar, cocktail-themed blowout. A touch of spray and you’re ready for the night.

Madison Reed Color Bar

For those who came in straight from a weekend at the beach, this quick color bar offers quick fixes for brassy, dull hair and grown out roots. A touch up, gloss and a blowout will get you primped after-hours, as it’s open until 9pm.    

7 W. 19th St., at Fifth Ave.; 646-682-9432



Every New Yorker in the know is a fan of Cutler’s relaxed, sharp, trendy cuts and colors. At the Soho spot, ask for Tyson, Rodney or Emily for a cut, or try a soft balayage with Rachel, Ryan or Elisabeth. Now you can face the show – and after-party – circuit in style.
