Just a month after Synchronicity opened next door, the other half of 179 Orchard Street finally spawned a retail tenant. The storefront has succeeded in consuming smallish boutiques in recent years. Factoriem was evicted in November 2011, nearly three years into its residency here; Delicate Raymond Jewelry would come the next summer, but relocated shortly thereafter. Now the space is switching to scissors.

Yup. A new high-end salon specifically for the well-heeled crowds consuming upper Orchard Street these days. Massimo Salon emerged Sunday evening after months shrouded behind window paper, launching with the requisite party for friends and family.

Massimo Salon is open 11 am through 8pm all week except Sunday, 1pm through 6pm. The basic cut will cost you $60.
