The Chop-Chop founders Danila, Alexei and Evgeny one day got very annoyed by the attacks of Chop-Chop clients' girlfriends who begged them to open a similar beauty-shop for them. A year after the first Chop-Chop opening the guys built up a new team and launched the first female hairdressing salon Ptichka. It is divided in two halls: one for haircuts and another for manicure. The philosophical basis of the shop is naturalness. The whispering of a vinyl record player, light walls, vintage furniture and refined clientele take the everyday routine away as you step in here.
My Fair Lady
This beauty salon is for girls only: pink walls, fabric lamps, antique cabinets, portraits of ladies in gilt frames, tiles in floral. Girls indeed often gather here to have a little chat about boyfriends and to get their nails done. In addition clients are often served with champagne which makes it all even more exciting. There are regular movies screenings, "My Fair Lady" as well.
Fen Dry Bar
Fen Dry Bar is a salon of a rare beauty genre for Moscow. You won't get a cut or coloring for your hair, only drying and styling it. However a comprehensive hair care can also be booked in advance. On the weekdays one can also get a manicure here. On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays the makeup section is added to the service.
Don't expect a Hollywood curls hairstyle or hair and nail extension here. The core thing about Annie Hall is naturalness. The beauty shop masters are trying to convince the girls that there is nothing better than healthy hair and woke-up-and-went-out set. Step by step they are making progress. In this hard battle for natural beauty they are backed up by frequent workshops and parties with champagne. If you are not ready to have your hair cut or died try Hair happiness (Schastye dlya volos) treatment. After that your hair will be like silk. Another reverence to the term naturalness.
Tsvetnoy Central Market
Tsvetnoy Central Market deserves attention literally starting from the entrance. The building created by the architect Yuri Grigoryan is unique for contemporary Moscow. It depends on the season which route to choose when in Tsvetnoy Central Market. In summer you go right up to the roof café with marvelous city view. In winter down to the basement where you will find a Christmas market with local designers stuff. The fifth floor is interesting with its farmers market and gastronomy points (one of them is really Soviet like with all those traditional salads and cutlets). The brand locating scheme is as follows: make up and mass-market goods are downstairs, luxurious brands and selective perfumes upstairs. The upper the floor the higher the prices. Acne, MM6 Maison Martin Margiela, Edun, All Saints, Maje, Sandro, Zadig & Voltair, Reiss, A.P.C., Cédric Charlier, Paul & Joe Sister, Vivienne Westwood are among the brands here. Not everybody keeps in mind a perfume and beauty corner on the third floor though it's the only place in Moscow where perfume maniacs can buy Mai Couture and April Aromatics products.
Previously Winzavod was famous for contemporary art exhibitions, now mostly for selective beauty brands like Malin+Goetz, Panpuri, Acca Kappa, Urban Tribe, Tokyo Milk, PhiLab which may be found in Cosmotheca concept store. The shop is focused on the leading ethical niche beauty and perfume brands from all over the world. Sales launch of every new brand is always quite a happening in Cosmotheca whether it is a party or a public talk with brand ambassadors. In the beauty shop attached to the store they use all the brands from Cosmotheca so that you may not only get new haircut, facial or body massage but also try the products you'd love to. Since recently Faux Pas tattoо studio which has tattooed at least half of Moscow fancy youth locates here.
The venue in Staropimenovsky Lane is the child of ex Chop-Chop executive Alina Malyau and Arseny Shvetz who trained Chop-Chop stylists. Noir is nothing like a barbershop: no beards or blades, but both male and female haircuts. Berlin inspiration is obvious: industrial interiors, black walls and chairs echoing the name (noir means black), glass walls and modern art albums on the shelves. Services are simple: girls haircut and hairdo, boys haircut and beard trim.
The chain's specialty are perfectly shaped brows. Their staff are pros: forget about coal black or thread thin brows, here the masters know all the latest beauty trends and appreciate natural and full brows. They offer shaping, dying (try henna it's really long lasting ), brow make up, partial or full extensions and grooming. They also have makeup, facial care and hair removal . Find the bars in big malls such as Evropeyski, Аtrium, Аfimoll, Еrevan Plaza and Rio.
