The coming soon sign is up for the next retail tenant at 44 E. First St. … Joli Beauty Bar…
Here's more about Joli via a post at Racked back in the spring:
Joli Beauty Bar [is] a "French café"–inspired space for makeup applications and lessons, a retail store for under-the-radar beauty brands, blowouts, "depuffing" treatments, and gel nails — all of which you can elect to get with a glass of wine or specialty cocktail in hand.
You can find the Joli website here.
The previous tenant, the plant store/boutique Green Fingers, moved to Rivington Street earlier in the year. The western storefront was briefly home to the hyped laundro-bar Wash House.
Julius Klein had the eastern storefront for years before he was Cromanated in the spring of 2012.
