Tried It: MB45, A New Salon Concept in NYC

A manicure and blowout in 45 minutes? Yes, please!

When Studio MB45 invited us in, I (as Jeannine's intern), couldn’t be more excited to check it out. MB45 streamlines your pampering by giving you a manicure and blowout by two trained professionals simultaneously. In the fast-paced setting that is New York City, the idea of simultaneous services is exactly what we need.

On a busy day between attending events for Jeannine, I headed over to MB45. Their studio is decorated modern with a vintage twist. When I walked in, I was asked whether I wanted a gel or regular manicure, then escorted to the washing stations where one beautician washed my hair. I picked a gel manicure and then selected blowout style Down 4. There are 5 different blowout styles, in addition to plus services like braids and updos.

While one beautician began blowing out my hair, another started working on my nails. Every tiny detail was paid attention to, from my desired shape of my nails to the temperature of the water and heat of the dryer. Both services were completed in less than 45 minutes, as promised.
