The party season can be a tough time for busy city-dwellers, who often face analysis paralysis when trying to choose a salon or beauty bar. But WO has done the research so you don’t have to — our shortlist of Kyiv’s finest will help get you party-ready for 2020, minus the stress
Say No Mo
Over the last decade, sustainability has become integral to the world of fashion and beauty. In December, this self-proclaimed ‘social nail bar’ will burst onto the scene to challenge Kyiv’s traditional nail bars, just in time for the new decade. Their mission? Devotion to green principles, offering vegan-friendly, cruelty-free alternatives to the toxic, chemical-laden products often found in other salons. Say No Mo is an ideal blend of social venue and retail boutique, creating the perfect environment for a dose of holiday mood.
