The Paris Scene

This fashion season, the City of Light has a lot to offer — from art exhibitions to shops to spas. Here’s a smattering of the latest.

BEAUTY EXPRESS: For beauty buffs on the go, Paris has a burgeoning express-service scene.

Last fall, Le Kiosque Beauté opened its most recent location, in the 7th arrondissement. Here’s a place to get eyebrows reworked (for 30 euros, or $41 at current exchange, before 8 p.m., or 35 euros, or $48, later); a manicure (7 euros, or $10, during the daytime, or 12 euros, or $16, at night) or a visit to a dry bar for hair — all lickety-split.

Need a polish in a hurry? Nailmatic plans to install a distributor in the Gare de Lyon train station at the end of February. Here, 63 colors will be on offer at a price of 5 euros ($7) per 8-ml. bottle.

There is also Le Nail Truck, which will be parked by Bercy’s Palais Omnisport on March 2. Its services include a polish for 9 euros ($12) and a French manicure for 12 euros ($16.50).

(Another familiar beauty van in fashion circles, Le Boudoir des Cocottes, won’t be doing its rounds this fashion season as it’s having a makeover. At other times, it offers various 15-minute beauty treatments.)
