Beauty Bar in the East Village just celebrated its 20-year anniversary this spring.
This theme #bar was created in 1995 when Paul Devitt found the former "Thomas Beauty Salon" on 14th Street. The 40-year old #hair #salon had all of its original chrome-domed hair dryers and chandeliers and its original #signage which was all kept in place. ...
