About Martial Vivot

Martial Vivot is a world-renowned gentlemen's grooming guru and owner of the Martial Vivot Salon Pour Hommes on Manhattan's West 54th Street.  Touted by the New York Times as "the gentlemen's barber for many of the city's most powerful" and "the best in the city" by GQ, he is arguably the city's preeminent men's stylist.

Predicting the rise of the men's salons, Vivot launched his Salon Pour Hommes in 2008, the first men's salon in New York City to offer a high caliber of full grooming services paired with privacy and the masculine environs men desire.
