Meatpacking District Health & Beauty
410 W. 14th St., Meatpacking District
Hip-hop and yoga may seem like an odd combination, but somehow, inexplicably, it works here, especially on #hiphopwednesday and #hiphopsunday classes, where an artist of the week is featured (like A$AP Rocky, Dr. Dre, or Pharrell Williams) in a sixty-minute themed vinyasa flow. They take it seriously, too: Artists are announced every Monday on Y7’s Instagram page. The studio space is candlelit, so if you’re not on your A game, you’ll feel comfortable in the just-dark-enough surroundings. And this particular location is one of Y7’s largest, with changing rooms, mat and towel rentals, and a yoga selfie booth.
13 Gansevoort St., Lower Level, Meatpacking District
Each 50-minute class at this weight-lifting studio tucked away on one of the quainter streets below 14th street is designed to chisel and strengthen. The classes run the gamut—there’s Legs & Butt, Chest & Biceps, Full Body, Legs & Shoulders—and the playlists are mood-boosting mashups of radio hits that make the dumbbell drills fly by. The instructors are thoughtful, patient, and, of course, enviously toned.
34 Gansevoort St., Meatpacking District
The haircuts here are expensive, but it is a worthwhile, once-in-a-lifetime treat. Orlando Pita and his staff have created the looks behind many a fashion show, editorial shoot, and ad campaign: In other words, they know what they're doing, and will arguably give you the best cut of your life.
55 Little W. 12th St., Meatpacking District
This all-natural Australian brand's first salon in New York is beautifully turned out in an airy, semi-industrial space in Meatpacking. Haircuts, blow-outs, and color treatments are all done using Original & Mineral products, which leave hair in much better shape than when you walk in.
