Let’s be honest: Fashion Week is exhausting. Here’s our go-to guide for a bit of calm amidst the high-heeled storm.

GET GLAM
Head to our favorite salon in the area for a quick blowout, or if time allows, the full Monty. Our friends at IGK at the Dream Downtown are the kings (and queens) of glamour, all wrapped up in one quaint nook tucked into the hotel’s ground floor. Luxury Attaché clients receive 20% off salon services along with complimentary gloss treatment with cut/blowout with color booking. Stylists are also available for in-home appointments. Bonus: snag a post-beauty sesh cocktail at the lobby bar or crowd favorite Bodega Negra, just steps from the salon.

PICK ME UP
It goes without saying that caffeine is a must-have in everyday life, and NYFW is no exception. Luckily, our friends at LDV have debuted a brand new espresso outpost just in time for the Fashion Week festivities, just blocks from Moynihan Station (this year’s home base). Corso Coffee’s shiny West 27th Street spot beckons fashionistas and neighborhood dwellers alike with its retro Italian feel and killer ‘spro. It’s our new favorite way to stay awake.

HOME RUN
Skip the hassle of rushing to an appointment and bring the stylist home with our preferred on-demand beauty and wellness services. Massage and facial from The Ritualist? Check. Blowout and makeover by Glamsquad? Double check. Quick cut and shave for the leading gentleman courtesy of Shortcut? But of course. We know it sounds too good to be true, but we’re all about making things happen.
