Bon-Bon, which first set up shop in 1988 on Third Avenue, tries to cultivate an air of exclusivity. Like so many Manhattan salons, its website proclaims it one of the top places, posts photos of B- and C-list celebrity clients as proof, and insists patrons book appointments at least a week in advance. However, while the newer location on Lex, with its black marble floors and behind-the-counter flat-screen televisions, is definitely much sleeker and more modern than its elder sister, there isn’t really much to recommend over the many other salon/spa combos that cater to the Midtown masses. Both Bon-Bons are full-service hair salons; their menus of spa treatments differ slightly. Third Ave. offers electrolysis in addition to waxing and body wraps, polishes in addition to massage (techniques run the gamut: Swedish, deep tissue, aromatherapy, shiatsu, sport, reflexology); Lexington also does tanning. Third Ave. is a little less expensive, but the extra dollars tacked onto the Lexington prices seem only to buy a slightly better address and a lot more attitude.
