Martial Vivot Salon

Martial Vivot has a Midtown location at 39 East 54th Street, directly across from the MOMA (it’s hard to get more stylish than that!)

Founder Martial Vivot began his craft in France as a teenager, and by the 90’s was known as the European founder of the metrosexual approach to men’s grooming. The salon is an oasis of urban sophistication, catering to men who enjoy an afternoon surrounded by the finer things in life. Depending on the master level of the stylist, haircut prices range wildly, so it’s recommended to make an appointment for your preferred stylist. Other services offered are highlights, head shaves, hair straightening, wedding grooming services, and on-camera services (think: to reduce shininess and dark eye circles for your big debut!)
