Massage therapist Ariel Sheldon teamed up with hairstylist Caroline Bach to create this cozy, one-room salon/spa hybrid in Greenpoint. In this sunlit, subterranean room, outfitted with shabby, chic French-looking antiques, Bach cuts and colors her clients’ hair in the sole salon chair for part of the week. On the other days, Sheldon, who slightly transforms the space with pulled curtains, candles, and a massage table swathed in comfy linen sheets, performs massage, Reiki, and leads private mat Pilates. Bach, who formally worked at Williamsburg salon Woodley & Bunny, has a knack for creating natural-looking long layers and giving some volume to wavy locks, while Sheldon, who has been practicing massage since 1999, has the ability to work through muscle tension, and, with Reiki, can put you right to sleep.
