Fox & Jane Salon Opening Finishing Bar Next Door at 154 Orchard

Posted on: December 5th, 2011 at 6:19 am by

Having opened at 154 Orchard Street back in July, hair stylist Lorean Cairns of the Fox & Jane Salon is already expanding her brand.  Business is apparently on the upswing, so look no further than next door.

Just across the first floor landing, work is nearly complete on the Finishing Bar by Fox & Jane.  Over the weekend, the month-old brown paper was removed from the windows and the leafing emblazoned on the glass. This new concept is actually an extension of what the salon initially set out to do.  Creating an atmosphere “to go for conversation and cocktails as you get ready for a big date, an important event.”

The Finishing Bar is reportedly a gender-neutral boutique beauty bar that offers nail care, full-service waxing, and make-up consultation, all of which includes complimentary hot tea and/or wine and champagne. Its presence here at 154 Orchard Street marks the third such related business at this address in a year.  Crops for Girls occupied the location for over five years before relocating to the East Village in September 2010.  The replacement, copyright-infringing Victoria’s Hair Secret, didn’t last long and became the first quickie closure of 2011 at two months.

Finishing Bar by Fox & Jane is slated to open for business on December 8. Salon hours are Sunday-Friday 11:00 – 8:00 pm and Saturdays from 11:00 – 7:00 pm. Below is a coupon-announcement for the grand opening.
