Best Men's Salon

  • Martial Vivot

    39 W. 54th St., nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-956-2990

    The former director of the men’s division at Paul Labrecque, Martial Vivot went on his own in 2008 with this devoted-to-men salon. Its sophisticated, neutral-toned interior and the bar with top-shelf liquors make it feel masculine and friendly but not overdesigned. There are basic services like manicures ($32), haircuts (from $125), and shaves (from $85), and more devoted groomers can get highlights (from $100) or a mint menthol scalp treatment (from $85).
