NYC Gets its First Ever Candy-Inspired Salon as Valentine’s Day Pop-Up
Mars Wrigley Confectionery plans to make Valentine’s Day in NYC even sweeter with two days of free salon services at their candy-themed pop up salon!

Mars (the company behind popular candies such as M&M’s, Snickers, Dove, and Skittles) has created the ultimate pampering experience: Sweet ReTREAT.

The salon will offer a variety of “TREATments” out of their location the Garment District including: 

  • Manicures – where you’ll pick from colors like Lemony Yellow, Sweet Cherry Red, and Groovy Grape Purple. The colors are “candy shell lacquers inspired by ‘tasting the rainbow’ of Skittles and the ‘inexplicably juice’ Starburst.”
  • Pedicures – where you’ll choose from their signature option that’s the same as the manicures, or the Snickers Pedi (which offers you a Snickers while your feet are soaked and scrubbed.
  • Blowout Bar – inspired by Altoids and Extra, you’ll receive an infused mint blowout with several style options.
  • The Candy Counter Makeup Bar – which is inspired by Mars’ chocolates like the Dove Chocolate Smokey Eye; M&M’s “Red” Lip and Dramatic Lashes inspired by “Green”; Snickers Nougat Nude Look; and Twix Left/Right Brow Bar.

Each service is intended for two. The concept was brought on by the company’s research that found “74% of people believe a treat is sweeter when shared with a friend.”

The pop up will be open for TREATments on Feb. 13 and 14 at 230 West 39th Street. You can book a time slot here for one of their complimentary services, but if the option you want is already “sold out” by the time you get to it make sure to join the waitlist!!
