Fox & Jane Salon and Finishing Bar Opens at 154 Orchard

Posted on: July 12th, 2011 at 6:41 am by

The upper-level retail presence at 154 Orchard Street continues to evolve.  Historically speaking (well, within the last few years), a boutique or pop-up occupied the northern store while Crops for Girls anchored the balance.  Now there’s somewhat of a unilateral role reversal.  Indeed, while the southern space remains vacant post-Victoria’s Hair Secret, a new salon concept just opened next door.  Fox & Jane.

Fox & Jane bills itself as more than just the average salon; it’s also a finishing bar.  In anticipation of your inevitable question, a finishing bar is the hair equivalent of pre-gaming before a night of heavy drinking.  Essentially, this latest chop shop offers the gimmick of cuts, conversation, and cocktails.

Hair stylist Lorean Cairns is the driving force behind Fox & Jane.  Cairns, a product of the Denver area Aveda Institute, paired up with designer Bobby Berk for the new venture.

Here’s the press release pitch:

FOX & JANE Salon and Finishing Bar, an homage to London’s neighborhood pubs and watering holes, where everyone’s welcome, everyone has something interesting to say, and everyone knows your name.  Follow the laughter permeating the hustle and bustle of the Lower East Side and you’ll find yourself at the unassuming Fox & Jane. This full-service salon greets you with a welcoming smile, not only encouraging you to come in, but also to stay for a while.

Salon hours are 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. For inquiries, or to schedule an appointment, call (212) 837-2774.
