MB45 = Manicure + Blowout in 45 Minutes

MB45, MB45 NYC, MB45 Tribeca

It's a fast paced world we live in these days and MB45 understands that with their new salon that lets you double down on your beauty treatments by offering a simultaneous manicure and blowout service in just 45 minutes. Founders Fernanda Lacerda and Manuela Giannini who were already accommodating client requests for manicures along with blowouts at their Maria Bonita Salon & Spa in Nolita wanted to create a solely dedicated space to streamline the process.

The recently opened MB45 studio at 93 Worth Street in Tribeca is all about style and efficiency. The impressively high ceilinged salon was designed by co-owner Manuela Giannini, a Parson's educated interior designer, who took inspiration from NYC dining hotspots Pastis and Balthazar in creating a laidback, casual industrial space with subway tiles, unfinished concrete floors and wheatpaste style street art adorning the walls. Particularly striking is a corner wall that features panels from How Do I Feel Today, a 365 day art project created by their friend Brazilian artist/model Nathalie Edenburg.

The signature service at MB45 is of course the namesake simultaneous Mani + Blowout in 45 minutes starting at $65. Clients get to choose from a menu of styles that include sleek and straight, wavy or curled hair and a regular polish or gel manicure. Add on services include braids or updos. Additional service offerings which can include makeup range from $80 to $135.  These services take the blowdry bar to the next level, making MB45 Studio an ideal first stop before an evening out or a special event so it's no surprise that the team already has franchise plans in the works. MB45 Studio uses Morgan Taylor Professional Nail Lacquers, OPI GelColor Polishes and R+Co Hair Products.

I was invited to a press preview to experience MB45. I usually style my hair straight and sleek but thought it would be fun to do something different and get a style with some texture and wave.  I ended up with the effortlessly undone cool girl hair that I covet and a fab nude mani in just under 45 minutes!  Speedy beauty is everything because time is everything! Manicures and blowouts are something that I rarely indulge in because of the time involved but this is a game changer. I enjoyed my experience and considering MB45 Studio just happens to be conveniently located in my neighborhood, I can definitely see myself back there again.

What do you think of this concept? Would you want to get a manicure and blowout at the same time?

I totally would. On a day to day basis I just put my hair up and I only do my nails on a weekend, if the kids allow me some time, so that would be a special treat.

Rowena, totally loving your hair! It's a very cool downtown look, and I'm also a big fan of nude nails, so double thumbs up:D
This place looks stylin' for sure. I love how she designed the place, and putting artwork....I don't think I've ever seen that in a salon.

Gabrielle said...

This place looks amazing and it's great to see a photo of the duo that run the place - thanks for sharing the beautiful photo of them! Speaking of beautiful, I adore your blowout Rowena; so fresh and perfect. Also, completely obsessing over the interior design of this place (those white tiles!)

MB45 studio seems like a must visit place! I love how they thought of combining the manicure with blow outs. That saves up time...and being able to deliver both in under 45 minutes makes this beauty saloon really special. If I lived there, I would pay it a visit for sure.

You look lovely with your fabulous bob and neutral manicure. SO cute!!!!

homestilo said...

I am impressed! That's great + quick pampering. Loving the styling and branding of the place as well.

Cheryl van den Berg said...

I love the concept. I don't usually get blowouts at all, but I think most people would love the idea of getting a mani at the same time.

This sounds great! Especially for someone who is on the go and doesn't have time to go to two separate places to get this done. I love it! Though I think the price would deter me a little bit... probably something that is best for special occassions!

What a lovely new look on you, Rowena. I also like the sound of this salon. I've only done a blow out only a handful of times in my life properly, otherwise it's hair up or semi-straightened when I make an effort, lol. Happy weekend.

This service is great, time saving and effective! Your hair and nails look lovely! Baci, Valeria - Coco et La vie en rose FASHION & BEAUTY

Oh this sounds like a great idea! Perfect for someone like me who finds it difficult getting away from the kids for too long, haha! :)

Hope you are having a lovely weekend :)

Most of these problems can be removed by one solution. Many people underestimate the impact of day spa sessions but they are awesome ways to improve the mind and the body. Spa in Manhattan
