Hairstylist and salon owner Eva Scrivo has unearthed a new outpost — in the NoLIta section of Manhattan.
The salon is located at 50 Bond Street, one she, her husband and an architect spent three months rebuilding, and that will for the next several weeks supplement Scrivo’s Hudson Street location.
By the beginning of July, a new Meatpacking District salon on 13th Street, next door to Spice Market, will replace the Hudson Street salon, which will close in June.
The Meatpacking District salon will measure 4,200 square feet and also will be the primary education facility for stylists from other salons on Scrivo’s cutting and coloring techniques, makeup and business-building skills — an initiative that Scrivo began in the past year.
The NoLIta salon is what she and her husband, Arik Efros, who is also the company’s chief executive officer, refer to as their labor of love, one that had them digging up eight layers and 100 years of flooring and knocking down wall after wall, only to discover windows that had previously not seen the light of day for decades.
“We had planned to spend one month refurbishing the space. That turned into three months,” Scrivo said at an editor event early this month. The salon, opening Tuesday, includes 3,500 square feet on its main floor, which houses a retail space as well as the cutting and coloring areas. A 2,000-square-foot lower level will contain spa services with treatment rooms, and also will house offices.
During the event, which introduced the beauty media to the new space, a camera crew for “The Martha Stewart Show” was present, recording Scrivo’s welcome to editors and her struggle to turn the place into the modern-yet-funky space it has become.
“The midcentury Venetian [glass] chandeliers come from a store down the street,” Scrivo said, which she hopes will complement the hardwood floors, sleek styling stations and modern furniture built by their architect, Vincenzo Mora, and Nakaoka/Roberts design group.
Scrivo, who serves as Stewart’s hair and makeup artist, often appears on her show as a beauty expert. Despite all the success, she remains humble and grateful, especially to the stylists with whom she works, as she introduced some of the salon’s key players, attributing them to her windfall.
@chanel and @pharrell dropped what’s being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive sneakers yesterday. The Adidas Originals NMD Hu, which Williams designed in collaboration with Chanel and @adidasoriginals, has a waiting list of over 120K people who pre-registered online at chanelatcolette.fr –– and only 500 pairs are on sale. The singer predicted the resale value of the shoes could reach $40K. Read the full interview on WWD.com. Link in bio. #wwdfashion (📷: Dominique Maître)
@imanshumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, and is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother. The Cleveland Cavaliers player talked to WWD about kneeling during the national anthem, working with fashion brands and how he wants to be more than an @nba player.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

@kith is moving into children’s. The men’s and women’s streetwear brand has launched Kidset, a Kith kids line located in New York at 64 Bleecker Street. The line includes mini versions of staple Kith pieces like the Astor bomber jacket and the Kith box logo sweatshirts, along with a wall that can display up to 120 pairs of shoes from @adidas, @newbalance, @timberland and more. #wwdfashion
“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
