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.

Foreseeing a dramatic evolution in men's grooming on the horizon in the 90's, Vivot became a pioneer in Europe for what would eventually be coined the "metrosexual" approach to men's grooming. 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.

In 2013, Martial Vivot launched The Martial Vivot Grooming Collection, including Shampoo, Conditioner, Gel, Paste, and Creme.  Most recently, the line has expanded to include Face & Beard Oil. The collection is available at Barney's New York and at MartialVivot.com.
