‘Fox & Jane’ Salon Renovates OG Orchard Street Space [Updated]

Posted on: August 8th, 2018 at 5:09 am by

[Updated] Fox & Jane Salon – born on the Lower East Side seven years ago – just completed a renovation project, not closing its 154 Orchard Street space. Its onetime flagship is now masked behind a curtain of brown paper.

Fox & Jane has held down a Chinatown space (“Fox & Jane Bowery”) for almost a year-and-a-half. Ownership planted a flag at 232 Grand Street (the one with balconies shaped as a Buddhist Swastika) in March 2017. This second-floor space is massive, and is the de facto flagship for the company, which boasts five locations citywide.

Its about page describes more about this headquarters:

[232 Grand Street] is home to our pioneering Workshop. Lead by resident Hair Educator Nikki Dominguez in collaboration with Lorean, the Workshop connects industry innovators with stylists from around the globe, and covers creative and practical tactics and technologies. Here is where Fox & Jane stylists and partners train in our unique techniques.

Fox & Jane Salon began life at 154 Orchard Street in 2011, and has been one of the longest-running, most steady retail tenants onsite in the last decade.
