Gramercy's Besu Salon Featured on Celebrity Apprentice
Ivanka Trump in Besu Salon
Besu Salon, owned by Rebecca Lieberman, is now located at 234 Third Avenue between 20th and 19th streets, where they relocated to eight months ago from a smaller location a block away.
Besu has become known in the Gramercy Park neighborhood for their warm customer relationships and reasonable rates. Therefore, despite the recent economic downturn, they were able to expand to their current much larger location. Besu Salon was also the key to the revitalization of their particular block of Third Avenue, where within months of their opening, several other new businesses arrived.
On Sunday May 5th, Besu was featured in episode 9 of Celebrity Apprentice's 11th season. Celebrities Ivanka Trump and Star Jones were among those in the episode.
